Sample Remix Contest: Win an Ohm Force ALL-ALL Bundle

66
rekkerd sample remix contest

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:

  1. 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.
  2. the rekkerd.org readership picks the winner, so no point in trying to bribe me.
  3. 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.

Sample remix contest rules

  • Only samples from the sample remix pack may be used. No other samples, generators or synths are allowed.
  • Samples may be processed/manipulated any way you like, please don’t hold back!
  • Entries must be encoded in mp3 format (minimum of 192kbit).
  • You may enter up to 2 entries.
  • Submissions must be in before the deadline of Thursday, 31 July, 2008*, after which there will be one week to vote for your top 3.
  • Every contestant will need to vote to be eligible to win (no, you may not vote for your own entry).
  • Prizes will be granted at the discretion of the rekkerd.org voting committee. There may be prizes for the runners-up.

* update 31-07-2008
Note: I realize I didn’t write this so clearly. To clarify, make sure to submit your entry before the end of today, July 31. I’m on CET timezone, but if you submit at 11.55pm your local time that’s fine with me too.

Small print: By entering the contest you allow rekkerd.org to publish your submission(s) on this website. Everything subject to change. Feel free to contact me if you’re worried about the details.

How to enter?

Use the contact form to submit your entry. Please include:

  1. a link to your hosted mp3 file
    (If you are unable to host the file just contact me and we’ll work something out).
  2. artist name, real name, website address and any other relevant info.

Submissions

I will regularly update this page with new submissions. (last update: 1 August 2008)

You can download all the tracks below. You can also visit some of the artists’ websites to get to know more about the people behind the songs.

Hi,

I have just started making music on my computer after a long long break (too long), so I was happy to see this, and I’ll see if I can make a submission on time (exams!).

Would I be allowed to use the samples in the pack in other contexts aswell?

Regards
Anders

Hello , two questions questions :

1/ Are extra fx processing allowed (with deep transformations such as pitch shift , spectral) ?
2/ Are the use of samplers allowed (formant sampler , granular sampler , which may transform deeply the original sample) ?

Wait, deadline is the 31 of JULY, not june? This means I still have plenty of time to submit something, I already thought that I missed another contest..

Any bad blood if I submit the stuff I make to http://5090.fawm.org/ after the contest? ;)

What about vocals? Can they be added for dramatic effect – if not is it ok to Vocoder the samples with vocals as it states – “Samples may be processed/manipulated any way you like, please don’t hold back!”

Hi,i have another stupid question…when i’ve heard the sound “bass_04.wav” I clearly have a kind of psychic reaction :

1/I’ve eard this before
2/It’s the Arturia minimoog
3/It ‘s the preset called ‘K.U_3osc’ from the bass bank.

SO…I was already knowing I have some very good ears but…

Can I use this preset now i’ve discovered it ?
Can the others synths sound be used as “wavetables” to make some sampler programs ?

Baz
Baz

Ok , but it’s crazy…the preset I was talinkg about and your sound are extremely similar.
Maybe the minimogueVA presets are also copying the arturia presets !? (in addition to the initial gui , which was changed due to a Arturia query )

You know, with so much great talent as shown here, it’s a wonder how so much junk gets released on these huge labels. People talk about music being blah today, but they don’t readily get to hear some of this great work.

SHALLAN – I don’t have a soundclick website (that I remember …heh), so I guess you’ll have to contact that other Audiopath about it…(if you haven’t already)…

I’ve just been on vacation for 10 days and I see the number of tracks has multiplied quite I bit, so I’d better get listening here….
