Producer Loops / Rekkerd DNB Competition

I am delighted to announce a new rekkerd.org contest. This time around it’s all about Drum & Bass, probably my all time favorite music genre.

After discovering this type of music in the early 90′s it has been the one genre that has consistently kept my interest over the years. Paradox, Roni Size, Dom & Roland, Ed Rush, Technical Itch, Source Direct, Photek, Dillinja, Omni Trio, Breakage, Total Science… just to name a few of my favorites.

For this contest Producer Loops has compiled an exclusive sample pack featuring selected sounds from its Drum & Bass Tip Trixxx Vol 1 & 2, and Liquid Drum & Bass Vol 1 & 2 sample libraries.

Download the contest sample pack and create a track using one or more of the 50 loops and single shot sounds provided, and submit it before the deadline; 9 July, 2010, 11.59pm CET.

DNB Competition Sample Pack Downloads: 5625 times

Out of all the entries I will personally select the first prize winner who will receive all four Producer Loops sample libraries from the sample pack. Contestants will vote for 2nd and 3rd prize winners, who will each receive their choice of one of these drum & bass sample packs.

Sample Remix Contest – The Results

Remix by José Carlos Cortizo Pérez @ Flickr

The sample remix contest is over and the votes are in.

Before I announce the winners, I would like to quote Dion (NO-ID), who wrote in the comments:

Funny,there can be a last place … not a bad last place, just different. There so much talent here, that it was really an honor to be in it

I too think you all truly did a great job, and it has been a joy to me to listen to each and every one of your songs. Unfortunately we can only have a few winners (of prizes anyway), so here are the top three voted entries:

  1. Happy Juice by Jackie
  2. Offset Senses by 3ee
  3. In the Gloaming by Rachmiel

With difference of only 2 points it was a pretty close call between Jackie and 3ee, and Jonas the plugexpert came in just one point behind Rachmiel’s third place win.

Jackie will receive the wonderful SilverLine Collection bundle of effect plug-ins by D16 Group. For second and third place winners 3ee and Rachmiel I have a sample library by Big Fish Audio. I will contact you with the details shortly.

Congratulations to the winners, and well done everyone! I hope to see you again for the next contest. Don’t forget to subscribe to the newsletter if you don’t want to miss it.

Sample Remix Contest – Win D16 Group SilverLine Collection

Remix by José Carlos Cortizo Pérez @ Flickr

Some of you have been reminding me it has been way too long since the last sample remix contest, and you’re right!

If you are new to rekkerd.org sample remix contests, the idea is simple: create a track using at least one of the samples included in the sample remix download pack below.

The pack includes a total of 32 samples — beats and melodic loops, in 24-bit .wav format (78 MB download).

Sample Remix Pack April 2010 Downloads: 7754 times

I hope these will inspire you to create some great music!
Note that you are free to use any hardware and software you want to create your entry, and you may process the sample(s) from the remix pack as little or much as you like. Be creative!

The contest will run until April 30, 2010, after which all contestants will have a week to pick their top 3 favorites (note: if you don’t vote, you can’t win!).

The top voted entry will win a SilverLine Collection bundle, kindly donated by D16 Group.

The SilverLine Collection comprises of 6 excellent effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac (multiband distortion, phaser, bit crusher, tube distortion, reverb, and chorus).

There may be some additional prizes.

Please submit your entry in mp3 format (192kbit or higher) before the deadline of April 30, 2010. One entry per contestant is allowed.

Update: April 20, 2010:

Please upload your entry to SoundCloud and drop it in my dropbox (make sure the file is not marked “private”) and send me a message or email me so I know you have submitted your entry.

If you do not have a SoundCloud account you can sign up for free. Alternately — if for some reason you really can’t use SoundCloud, you may use the contact form to submit your entry. Don’t forget to include your name/artist name and a link to your mp3 file or include it in an email.

Good luck and have fun!

Entries & voting

May 1, 2010: Voting is now open (and required for a chance to win) for contestants only. You may only vote once, and you can not vote for your own entry.

Please listen to each one of the entries listed below before you vote. It is my hope that you will take the time to post some comments/constructive criticism to other people’s work so everyone gets something out of this!

Send your top 3 favorites in a message to me on Soundcloud before May 8, 2010.

Additionally, if you like to share your votes with everyone you may also post a comment on this page.

Matt Mower releases Reichatron

Matt Mower Reichatron

Matt Mower has released Reichatron, a phase shifting looper for Native Instruments Reaktor.

Reichatron is a sample playing instrument that grew out of my desire to experiment with phase-shifted looping (a la Steve Reichʼs early works ʻItʼs Gonna Rainʼ and ʻPiano Phaseʼ) and as an homage to Metaphysical Function which is, I think, one of the most interesting Reaktor ensembles.

Reichatron allows you to mix together the phase-shifted blending of two samples and then modulate that mixture using a block of six effects that can be independently controlled. Reichatron also offers stochastic control of the effects block and sample selection. You can take as much, or as little, control over how the sound evolves over time as you like.

The Reichatron ensemble comes with 500+ MB of original material including samples from rekkerd.org and Rhythm Lab/Cyberworm.

Reichatron is available to download from the Native Instrument Reaktor User Library.

rekkerd mixed bag volume 2 – 26 free samples

Beats, basslines, synth melodies… This latest rekkerd.org sample pack has them all. Mixed bag volume 2 features 26 samples, in 24bit/44kHz stereo wav format.

The download is about 100MB, so I just dropped the samples in Ableton Live and put together a quick demo in case you want to hear what type of samples are included before you download them.

Note: the files have been normalized to 0dB peak. You may want to audition the samples at a moderate volume as some samples are considerably louder than others.
