The results are in and it’s time to distribute the prizes, kindly offered by our friends at Time+Space.

First place goes to Francis Red for the track “Tropology”, a quality production with a catchy melody. This was a clear win, with both the highest amount of votes and points, as well as the most #1 votes.

In second place is Noizefield with “Level Up”, demonstrating some next level sample processing skills.

Third place winner is “Alien Love” by SatYatunes, a beautiful downtempo atmospheric piece.

The 4th winner – picked by random.org – is Robert Fletcher with his entry Welcome Laughter.

Congratulations to the winners! It was a pretty close race for the top 10, which included the tracks by Marcin Chicy, Solidtrax, König, DavidF, Sayonara Gaia, Alex Nekita, Carbone and Crystal Craft.

Sample Remix Contest – Win prizes from Toontrack, iZotope, UVI & Synthogy

March 2013 Sample Remix Contest

Get your samplers ready, it’s time for another sample remix contest!

If you have previously participated in one of these contests you know the drill: Compose a track using the samples included in the download only, for a chance to win some great prizes.

You may process the samples any way you like, as long as you don’t use any additional instruments, samples, recordings, or other sound sources.

The download includes a total of 115 samples (24bit/44kHz WAV), including sounds contributed by Horatiu-Cristian Petrila of 3ee Sound Design.

The samples are basically all one-shot sounds, no loops this time. They are also deliberately without key information, the idea being that you explore the sounds and be inspired by what you find, rather than connecting the dots in a construction kit style approach.

Sample Remix Pack Download size: 48.3 MB

The deadline for submitting your entry is April 7th, 2013, 11:59pm CET.

So what can you win?

Our friends at Time+Space have generously donated a wonderful selection of prizes from its partners, a value of well over $2,000 USD in total!

Time+Space Sample Remix Contest prizes

The top 3 winners will be voted for by participating contestants. The 4th prize will be awarded to a random entry from the contestants that did not end up in the top 3, so everyone who submits a track has a chance of winning one of the prizes below.

Note: Contest winners pick their own prize from the pool, so the list above is in no particular order.

Contest rules

  • You may only use the samples provided in the contest sample pack. No other sound sources are allowed. You may process and manipulate sounds any way you want.
  • Submit your entry in mp3 format (minimum of 192kbit) per email to contest@rekkerd.org before April 7th, 2013, 11:59pm CET.

  • Your entry should be composed specifically for this contest. By entering, you grant permission for your track to be published at the rekkerd.org website, through SoundCloud.
  • 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).

Contest rules subject to change. If you have any questions feel free to ask or comment on this post.

Good luck!
Ronnie

Synthogy Ivory II American Concert D now shipping at Time+Space

Time+Space has announced it is now shipping the American Concert D, Synthogy’s most detailed Ivory II piano to date.

Synthogy Ivory II American Concert D
The piano was recorded in the Françoys-Bernier Concert Hall at Le Domaine Forget in the Charlevoix region of Quebec where Synthogy has captured every nuance in precise detail to deliver a sumptuous sound and a sublime playing experience.

The 1951 New York Steinway D with its exceptionally pure and clear tone and a remarkably expressive dynamic range is lauded by some of the world’s greatest concert artists and Synthogy has exquisitely captured every nuance of this piano for the newest addition to the critically acclaimed Ivory II family.

Delivering a sublime playing experience with a truly stunning sound, Ivory II American Concert D, with its 49GB library, is Synthogy’s largest single piano to date boasting even more detail with up to 20 velocity levels, more soft pedal samples and more release samples. What’s more, the American Concert D possesses a naturally long sustain, which is captured in its entirety to the final decay with some of the notes ringing longer than two minutes.

If you’re looking for a rich, classic concert sound or simply want to expand your palette of Ivory II pianos, the American Steinway Concert Grand is the clear choice.

Powered by the award-winning Ivory II engine, American Concert D contains the full breadth of Ivory II’s award winning features including the acclaimed Harmonic Resonance Modelling for the realisation of true Sympathetic String Resonance. Custom designed by Synthogy, this technology does not rely upon triggering additional samples or use ordinary sine waves. Rather, notes struck that are harmonically related excite the actual complex overtones of the notes that are being held, in the same manner that undamped strings resonate in a real acoustic piano. Together with the new American Concert D samples, the results are simply stunning, the culmination of Synthogy’s most powerful technology, with their most advanced sampling techniques.

Ivory II: American Concert D is a free-standing Virtual Instrument, which can run as a plug-in or standalone so no previous version of Ivory is required. Or, for existing Ivory II users, Ivory II: American Concert D will install directly into the existing Ivory II library, giving access to all of Ivory II´s pianos and features from one great interface.

“I try not to play favorites, but this might be the best piano we’ve ever done,” says Joe Ierardi, co-founder of Synthogy. “Of course, producing it for George Taylor´s brilliant Ivory II engine was added incentive to exceed all of our previous standards.”

The Ivory II American Concert D is available to purchase for an RRP of £139 GBP / 165 EUR.

The beauty of this instrument is captured in great detail, with up to 18 velocity levels, additional soft pedal and release samples and pedal noise enhancements. Synthogy’s decades of expertise in piano development, along with proprietary “timbre interpolation” technology combine to deliver the unrivaled playability and expressiveness that Ivory is famous for.
