Time+Space has announced that Synthogy is offering a free copy of the American Concert D piano instrument library with a purchase of the Ivory II Italian Grand and Ivory II Upright Pianos bundle.

Synthogy offer at Time+Space

With well-known artists such as Howard Jones, Imogen Heap, Gary Barlow, Pete Townshend and many more using Ivory II pianos in their own set ups, plus the abundance of first class press reviews that follow each Ivory release, Synthogy have undoubtedly hit the right note when it comes to virtual pianos.

This year, the Boston-based developers are celebrating their 10 year anniversary and are marking it with a very special offer…

When you buy the Ivory II Italian Grand and Ivory II Upright Pianos bundle before 25th December 2013, you´ll be eligible to claim a free copy of the newest addition to the Ivory family – the multi-award winning American Concert D!

Plus, combined with Time+Space’s current Festive Deal, you’ll also receive a free iLok or a £25 Time+Space gift voucher with your order!

The offer ends December 25th, 2013.

Synthogy Ivory II upgrade offers

Time+Space has announced that upgrades to Synthogy’s Ivory II virtual pianos are 20% off in July.

“This is industry standard, production-ready software that´s a joy to have around. There´s little else to say. Just go and play it…” – Sound on Sound

Since being unleashed unto the world in the Autumn of 2010, Synthogy´s Ivory II pianos have reaped praise from the press and users alike for their incredibly authentic sound and playability.

This month, Time+Space are giving users who are still tinkling the ivories of the Version 1.x titles the chance to upgrade to Ivory II for 20% less!

What are the benefits of upgrading?

Soaring at the highest possible levels of sampling and synthesis technology, each of the three Ivory II products now feature a greatly expanded sound set with nearly double the velocity layers, and the powerful, new Ivory II piano DSP engine with Harmonic Resonance Modelling for true Sympathetic String Vibration.

Ivory II also delivers some of Synthogy’s most frequent customer requests, with features such as Half Pedaling, Lid Position, Pedal Noise, and Tuning Tables to provide even greater detail and control. Additionally, features like Timbre Shifting, Parametric EQ, and new Synth Layer controls offer powerful new sound sculpting capabilities for custom piano programming and sound design.

Ivory II upgrades in July

  • Ivory II Grand Pianos Upgrade — Now £70.95 GBP / 82.95 EUR (regular £88.95 GBP / 106.95 EUR).
  • Ivory II Italian Grand Upgrade — Now £38.95 GBP / 45.95 EUR (regular £46.95 GBP / 55.95 EUR).
  • Ivory II Upright Pianos Upgrade — Now £64.95 GBP / 75.95 EUR (regular £74.95 GBP / 89.95 EUR).

This offer expires July 31st, 2013.

Sample Remix Contest 2013/03 – The Results

March 2013 Sample Remix Contest

Last week the sample remix contest deadline passed and all 58 contestants have had a week to check out the entries and submit their top 5 favorites.

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.

All winners will soon receive details on how to get one of the available prizes: Toontrack’s Superior Drummer + 1 SDX expansion, a bundle of iZotope Ozone 5, Stutter Edit & Trash 2, UVI’s Vintage Legends, and Synthogy Ivory Pianos II Grand Pianos.

A big thank you to everybody who took part in the contest, hope to see you again next time!

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.
    One entry per person is allowed, you will receive a confirmation of your submission.
  • 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
