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

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 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.

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?



M new 2 music….. m givin a shot 2 dis contest…. can any1 pls mention d time limit or d file size limit 4 our compositions?
thanx in advance…


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 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!”

Oooh a remix contest! Sweet. Haven’t done one of these in a while. Should be fun :)


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 ?


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 )


hi, i was wondering if we are allowed to include our tags in our submissons. thanks.


if youd like an example you could check out my



Hello Ronnie, quick question:

P.S: I don’t expect to win obviously but I want to enquire beforehand. Thanx in advance man. And good luck to all those entering the competition! BYE!!!


O and I forgot to mention… The posted address would be in London UK. Not mauritius. My grandmother lives in London that’s why :) . bye bye!
