Sample remix contests are usually quite boring. Download a sample pack, create a track with the included samples and hope the guy running the contest likes your stuff… or takes bribes.
If you’re hoping this contest will be any different, I have to disappoint you. It’s actually exactly what you just read, except:
- the sample remix pack includes 100+ samples (many of which were generated/processed with Ohm Force plug-ins), so there’s plenty to work with.
- the rekkerd.org readership picks the winner, so no point in trying to bribe me.
- the prize: Ohm Force ALL-ALL Bundle.
That’s right, you could win the complete collection of Ohm Force plug-ins, including Symptohm: Melohman and Ohmicide: Melohman. A value of $920 USD!
Excited? I know I would be, so go ahead and download the 54MB sample pack (84MB uncompressed) below to get started. And while you’re waiting for the download to complete, please read the contest rules below.
Sample Remix Pack 2008 Download size: 54.22 MB
The sample pack contains 24-bit wav files (mono/stereo) which have been normalized to a peak of 0dB. The volume of the samples varies quite a bit, and some of them are quite raw ‘n nasty, so please be sure to protect your ears & equipment.
