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!

Impact Sessions is a package of 62 custom samples designed to give producers a versatile palette of impact sounds that are meant for use in any number of different contexts, from modern music breakdowns to broadcast stingers.

Impact Sessions is the first in a series of smaller, more focused sample libraries devoted to providing a large variety of individual sample packs that are usable in multiple media formats (video games, broadcast, music, etc), instead of buying larger, broader libraries that may not be as much use.

Impact Sessions is available to purchase for $9 USD.
