Moving

Just a little reminder that you only have 3 days left to join the Moving music production contest.

To be honest I am not entirely sure if I will have internet access to check the latest entries in the next few days as I will be moving my internet/TV gear over to my new home over the weekend. Hopefully my provider has set thing up like they said they would… yeah…

Anyway, if you still would like a chance to win some fabulous prizes from DNR Collaborative, CableGuys, Synapse Audio, Wave Alchemy, and Soniccouture, then get started now.

Deadline is April 3rd, 11.59pm CET!

More information at the contest page.

Rekkerd.org music contest: “Moving”

As I am preparing to relocate my family to a new house this March, the subject of “moving” has been on my mind a lot lately.

Moving is about putting things in motion. Besides the obvious physical aspect, there can be quite an emotional side to moving as well. Seemed like a suitable theme for a music production contest.

Most of you would probably join the contest for the fun of it, but it doesn’t hurt to have some nice prizes, right? I am pleased to say there are lots of goodies to be won this time around.

The following list is in no particular order (as winners each get to pick their choice from the prize pot, per the contest rules below).

Contest sponsors

Contest prizes

  • Three downloads of your choice from Wave Alchemy, the sound design outfit responsible for some of the best electronic drum sample libraries around.
  • DUNE, Synapse Audio‘s new flagship “differential unison engine” synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac. A copy of the slightly older yet still venerable and duly popular Hydra multi-model synth is also on offer.
  • $500 USD store credit at Soniccouture, the established company behind many unusual & unique sample libraries such as Glass Works, The Skiddaw Stones, Balinese Gamelan, (Xtended) Piano, and the upcoming Ondes Martenot.
  • Berlin-based Cableguys contributes a total of 4 prizes from its exciting line of audio plug-ins. Single licenses for Curve, FilterShaper 2 & VolumeShaper 2, plus the complete Cableguys Bundle.
  • A two year all-inclusive subscription account at DNR Collaborative, which gives access to the entire product catalog + 2 years worth of new products. On top of that three randomly picked contestants will receive a Transitions Bundle.

Yes, that’s no less than 12 prizes to be won!

Although this is not a sample remix contest I still made sample pack for those who enjoy working with loops. The download includes 24 .wav samples (24bit), both melodic and beats. You can preview & download individual files from the SoundCloud player below, or download the complete pack here (47.9MB RAR archive).

Please make sure to read the contest rules below carefully. Good luck, and have fun!

The contest deadline is set to April 3rd.

Contest rules

  • Compose a song with the following theme: “Moving”.
    There are no specific rules on how to incorporate the theme, be creative.
  • Your entry must be written specifically for this contest.
  • A free sample pack is available to download for those who enjoy working with samples. Use of these samples is not required. You may process/manipulate the sample(s) in any way you like.
  • Upload your entry to SoundCloud and share it to the contest group before April 3, 2011, 11.59pm CET. One entry per contestant allowed.
  • Confirm your entry by email (no longer accepting entries)
  • In order to be eligible to win, contestants are required to vote for their top 5 within a week after the contest deadline. Contestants will be contacted to submit their votes. Note: you cannot vote for your own entry.
  • Winners choose a prize from the prize pool in order of placement (1st place winner picks first, then 2nd, etc.). All prizes are granted at the discretion of rekkerd.org. Some prizes may be subject to specific conditions imposed by the sponsor (e.g. NFR licenses).

Goodbye 2010, Hello 2011!

It has been a good year for rekkerd.org, and me personally (for those who don’t know, it’s just me running this site).

Some short stats on 2010:

  • I managed to churn out close to 3,200 posts, a slight increase over the 2,900 posts from 2009.
  • 35 sample libraries and plugins got reviewed, I organized three music production contests, and posted four free sample packs.
  • Rekkerd also started hosting a bunch more freeware plug-ins, including Fretted Synth and Lost Technology.
  • The rekkerd SoundCloud page seems to have become a more active place over the year, and I’m happy to read many of you enjoyed the few tunes I miraculously found the time for to do.
  • Despite having terrible social networking skills the site’s Twitter page just went 1,000+ followers, and I signed up for FaceBook even though everyone and their mother seems to dislike it for privacy issues or whatever.

Anyway, this is not why I wanted to write this post.

Whether you come here for the latest news, for free samples and plugins, visiting incidentally or many times a day, I just wanted to say …

Thank you for visiting rekkerd.org

… for visiting and supporting rekkerd throughout 2010.

May 2011 be a most wonderful year for you and yours, full of new musical adventures. Hope to see you again in the new year!

Cheers & many blessings,
Ronnie
