PreSonus GetYourHooksIn Contest

PreSonus and A-list producer/songwriter 5aint (clients include Amy Winehouse, Noel Gallagher, Sasha, and Pet Shop Boys) are co-hosting #GetYourHooksIn, a global vocal and songwriting competition to collaborate on the new 5aint single, which has the working title “Give2Get.” The prizes for this competition are quite exceptional.

Starting on March 12, 2014, 5aint and PreSonus will make available for download a stereo instrumental submix of “Give2Get,” embedded in a Studio One® file. The contest is not limited to existing users of Studio One, and a free version of Studio One will be made available to allow access to the track.

Contestants will write and record an original vocal line and melody, including lyrics for the song, and then will submit the resulting piece for judging. The contest closes at 11:59 p.m. U.S. Central Time on May 12, 2014.

A panel of special celebrity judges (including 5aint) will choose the winner and runners up. The panel will look for the submission with the most potential for widespread commercial appeal. The winning singer/songwriter, who can be an individual, group, or a production team, will be the featured on the recording and will receive 50 percent of the writing share.

In addition PreSonus will offer the following prizes:

  • Grand prize (one): a PreSonus ADL 700 channel strip, a pair of Sceptre S8 studio monitor speakers, an AudioBox 1818VSL interface, and a copy of Studio One Professional 2.
  • Second prize (two): a PreSonus Music Creation Suite recording kit.
  • Third prize (five): 1 copy each of PreSonus Studio One Professional 2 DAW software for Mac and Windows.

5aint and Steve Dodds (Jill Jones [Chic, Prince], Martin Page, Alan Moulder), who performed guitar on “Give2Get,” will perform daily in the PreSonus booth at the 2014 Frankfurt Musikmesse trade show (Hall 5.1, Booth B.56), where they will discuss the production techniques used in the creation of “Give2Get.”

Moogfest Audiotool Competition

Moogfest has announced the Moogfest Audiotool competition, offering participants a chance to play at Moogfest and get released on a compilation.

Starting today, Moogfest is inviting anyone to produce a track – using the free cloud-based audio workstation Audiotool – and submit it to the Moogfest Competition. The winner gets to play a set at Moogfest in Asheville, North Carolina, taking place from the 23rd to the 27th of April 2014. The winner will also, along with 7 runners up, have their tracks included on a limited edition release which will go out to the artists, VIPs and press who will be attending Moogfest.

Participants will have until the 25th of March to submit a track to the competition. A select panel including some of the Moogfest artists will then judge the tracks, with the the winner being announced on 1 April 2014.

Moogfest is the annual festival that celebrates the innovative spirit of founder Dr. Robert Moog, an American pioneer of electronic music and inventor of the Moog synthesizer. Emmy Parker, Brand Director at Moog Music Inc commented: “Moogfest represents the synthesis of technology, music and art. Audiotool’s innovative platform empowers emerging artists to create on their own terms. We are excited to offer Audiotool’s rich community of musicmakers an opportunity to be a part of Moogfest 2014.”

Since the 50s Moog Music has pioneered and developed devices that offer artists endless possibilities when it comes to creating sound. Audiotool, which started in 2008, brings together a range of retro and new school synthesizer emulations running in the browser, allowing collaboration and free access for anyone. The browser-based audio workstation is all about democratising the process of music creation and collaboration in the cloud. This partnership offers a unique opportunity to combine forces and to capitalize on the natural strengths and alignment of the two brands.

Audiotool inventor André Michelle said: “this partnership is huge for us and our users will be super excited about the chance of winning a set at Moogfest, for one just because of the incredible line-up. It’s also a unique opportunity for Audiotool users to have their music critiqued by some of the Moogfest artists.”

The contest submission phase ends March 25th, 2014. The winners will be announced April 1st, 2014.

The grand prize is playing live set at Moogfest (flight, hotel and artist pass included), and 1st – 8th place winners will get their tracks on the Moogfest 2014 compilation.

Novation launches Heritage Competition (+ free sample pack)

Novation has launched its Heritage Competition, a chance to win Novation’s Bass Station II, UltraNova and MiniNova.

We’re celebrating our heritage with a short film that explores Novation past, present, and future, along with a completely free sample pack comprising over 800MB of loops, single hits, multi sampled patches, and drum kits from its unforgettable and modern classic synths.

In addition, three people will win their choice of Bass Station II, UltraNova, or MiniNova – our award winning current lineup of synthesisers – in a make-a-track competition with an all-star judging panel including Paul Hartnoll (Orbital), Liam Howe (Lana Del Rey, Sneaker Pimps), Eats Everything, and Timo Maas in a competition running from the 4th of February to the 4th of March 2014.

Novation co-founder Ian Jannoway, legendary synth designer Chris Huggett, Gus Unger-Hamilton of Alt-J, Sneaker Pimps and Lana Del Rey producer Liam Howe, and product manager Matt Derbyshire all feature in a very special short film that charts the rise of Novation from humble beginnings to a company whose musical innovations support a user base that includes – amongst many others – Orbital, M4SONIC, Rudimental, T.E.E.D, Lunice, Alt-J, Teddy Riley, and Jimmy Mac – keyboardist for international sensation Lorde.

Supernova II, K Station, Bass Station, Drum Station, Bass Station II and Ultranova are all represented in the heritage sample pack, and we are launching a month long competition with an all-star judging panel including Paul Hartnoll (Orbital), Liam Howe (Lana Del Rey, Sneaker Pimps), Eats Everything, and Timo Maas to create a track using the pack – with three winners each winning their choice of either Ultranova, Mininova, or Bass Station II.

The competition ends March 4th, 2014.
