Tonehammer announces Gnomehammer MEGA-contest (and Ballchoir Freebie)
Tonehammer has announced the Gnomehammer MEGA-contest, a chance the win the complete collection of Tonehammer sample libraries.
The time has come … the stakes are up … Tonehammer and Gnomehammer are proud to announce our first annual Christmas MEGA-Contest!
The contest is divided into two different categories: “Best Tonehammer Demo” and “Best Gnomehammer Demo”, which each represents opposite sides of the compositional spectrum.
The winner of the Best Tonehammer Demo will win the entire Tonehammer catalogue (+$1900 of libraries), while the Best Gnomehammer Demo takes 2 Tonehammer (non-bundle) libraries of her/his own choice.
Tonehammer has also released The Ball Choir, a new free sample pack.
To inspire you all and get the party going we have uploaded a new freebie today – known as “The Ball Choir”.
The Ball Choir represents a landmark in sampling as its the first time anybody has captured the sound of Santas manic dungeon. The patch is a delicate recording of Santa punishing the Gnomes for their negligent and reckless behavior. The patch is essentially a Helium Choir patch contain a nasty “Auuuuchhh” Gnomehammer scream, however the modwheel controls the amount of gnome testicle ball crunch sound, so use it care and do NOT try this at home!
The contest deadline is 12AM/PST December 23, 2009.
