I am very excited to announce a new music production contest at Rekkerd!
This time we’re collaborating with Splice Sounds, the subscription based service that offers access to over 1 million samples and synth presets. Their library features exclusive artist packs, as well as a huge collection of sounds from partner labels.
For this contest I have put together a free “Splice Repack”, featuring a selection of 75 samples from one of my favorite labels, Loopmasters.
The included sounds are taken from Chill Trap and Future RnB by Capsun, Future Bass Generation, Organic Future Hip Hop, Deep Trap, and Rolling Drums by Breakage. I reckon the download offers a nice mix of bass music type flavors.
To enter the contest you need to create a track using only the samples from the repack, which comprises a variety of drum one shots, synth sounds, bass, chords, and more.
Chop up the samples, process them with your favorite VST effects, turn them inside out… it’s all good as long as you don’t use any other source material than the sounds from the contest repack.
This will provide you with 1 month free access so you can download the 0-credit contest pack. You are free to use the 100 download credits to explore the Splice library, and the subscription can be cancelled at any time so you will not get charged for the next month.
Once your all set, go ahead and pick up the contest repack below and get creative!
