Sample Remix Contest – Win D16 Group SilverLine Collection

52
Remix by José Carlos Cortizo Pérez @ Flickr

Some of you have been reminding me it has been way too long since the last sample remix contest, and you’re right!

If you are new to rekkerd.org sample remix contests, the idea is simple: create a track using at least one of the samples included in the sample remix download pack below.

The pack includes a total of 32 samples — beats and melodic loops, in 24-bit .wav format (78 MB download).

Sample Remix Pack April 2010 Download size: 76.85 MB

I hope these will inspire you to create some great music!
Note that you are free to use any hardware and software you want to create your entry, and you may process the sample(s) from the remix pack as little or much as you like. Be creative!

The contest will run until April 30, 2010, after which all contestants will have a week to pick their top 3 favorites (note: if you don’t vote, you can’t win!).

The top voted entry will win a SilverLine Collection bundle, kindly donated by D16 Group.

The SilverLine Collection comprises of 6 excellent effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac (multiband distortion, phaser, bit crusher, tube distortion, reverb, and chorus).

There may be some additional prizes.

Please submit your entry in mp3 format (192kbit or higher) before the deadline of April 30, 2010. One entry per contestant is allowed.

Update: April 20, 2010:

Please upload your entry to SoundCloud and drop it in my dropbox (make sure the file is not marked “private”) and send me a message or email me so I know you have submitted your entry.

If you do not have a SoundCloud account you can sign up for free. Alternately — if for some reason you really can’t use SoundCloud, you may use the contact form to submit your entry. Don’t forget to include your name/artist name and a link to your mp3 file or include it in an email.

Good luck and have fun!

Entries & voting

May 1, 2010: Voting is now open (and required for a chance to win) for contestants only. You may only vote once, and you can not vote for your own entry.

Please listen to each one of the entries listed below before you vote. It is my hope that you will take the time to post some comments/constructive criticism to other people’s work so everyone gets something out of this!

Send your top 3 favorites in a message to me on Soundcloud before May 8, 2010.

Additionally, if you like to share your votes with everyone you may also post a comment on this page.

Update: I’ve removed all the links to the entries since many of them are no longer available.

Results

Before I announce the winners, I would like to quote Dion (NO-ID), who wrote in the comments:

Funny, there can be a last place … not a bad last place, just different. There so much talent here, that it was really an honor to be in it

I too think you all truly did a great job, and it has been a joy to me to listen to each and every one of your songs. Unfortunately we can only have a few winners (of prizes anyway), so here are the top three voted entries:

  1. Happy Juice by Jackie
  2. Offset Senses by 3ee
  3. In the Gloaming by Rachmiel

With difference of only 2 points it was a pretty close call between Jackie and 3ee, and Jonas the plugexpert came in just one point behind Rachmiel’s third place win.

Jackie will receive the wonderful SilverLine Collection bundle of effect plug-ins by D16 Group. For second and third place winners 3ee and Rachmiel I have a sample library by Big Fish Audio. I will contact you with the details shortly.

Congratulations to the winners, and well done everyone! I hope to see you again for the next contest. Don’t forget to subscribe to the newsletter if you don’t want to miss it.

Hi Ronnie!
A suggestion would be to; maybe make use of soundcloud for this contest and future contests instead of the past used flash player.
Thank’s for having this contest! :)

BTW. Just to eliminate any confusion, there isn’t any specific track to remix, right? The information stated @ findremix.com is accompanied with an “original mix”

Hi. I did some listening to the samples soon after they were released, but didn’t get started putting together a track until yesterday. I’ll probably want to get in as much tweaking as possible, so I was wondering more specifically when the deadline is as far as time zones go.

Hey! Just wondering. Since you’ve changed this to Soundcloud, do the entries still have to be in MP3 format, because they encode to MP3 for their widgets and I don’t want my entry to be encoded twice. Thanks.

THIS IS NOT MY VOTE I haven’t listened to enough songs yet, but I like “A Woman In Berlin” by Daniel Aloysius Hogan. The only negative point the songs gets is it totally lacks an outro, it’s far too sudden.

3ee – Offset Senses

Voted by me as winner track. None of the others do the job nearly as well for me. Great quality track – read my comment on it :)

Villa Violet is imo not a winner. The production it self is by far above average, but just does not work for me. And the 303 (sample?) is too dominating imo..

would love to see some of your votes on my tune :)

Thanks to those who have commented on my entry. While I have been learning more about production, I still think I am more of a musician/performer. I have been playing guitar for about 27 years, and dabbling with computer generated music for about 10 years off and on, but have been mostly been focused on guitar in that time. While I am happy with my entry, and think it is a step up production wise compared to my previous works, some of which are on my Soundcloud account, I definitely spent more time on the content of each part while… Read more »

Big ups Jingle & Ronnie… We are all beat makers and/or musicians… This contest was fun and exciting for me… Smile…!!! Then people started going crazy and I know its human nature to compete (or fight)… All of the tracks were good in one way or another… I know personally I could have done better. I will do better in the future if Ronnie continues this type of contest… Anyway… Big ups everyone… I hope the best track win… Good job Ronnie… I am your fan…!!! My 4 Top favorites: 1.) Turn that Upside Downfrown Updowntown 2.) Lope – Having… Read more »

3ee’s Top 3: —————————————– 1st Happy Juice by _jackie 2nd Jonas The Plugexpert – Bedrijf by plugexpert 3rd Lope – Having a Senior Moment by Interloper —————————————– Comments: (1). Now this is obviously a very good quality production! Best arrangement in this contest and also a great mix. I like the fact that instead of fighting for heavier kick drum, Jackie went for a smooth, punchy vinyl sound that gives him points in hi-class production. Tight, solid… with a good warm, sexy and groovy character. (2). It has some sort of a (bit odd) magical touch that captivates attention. Good… Read more »

It’s nothing to do with reality 3ee, it’s everything to do with personal taste.

3ee

If it was for personal taste my top 3 would be different. I think that the fairest way to judge something and still put your finger print on it is to include at least 50% of objective matter into the equation.
So I’d say 50% personal taste, 50% as objective (by the books)
Will be associating personal taste with human VS objective with real facts, professional facts (“as far as we can tell”). There isn’t a border between the two anyway…

Ron,once again ,thank you for the contest..this is only my second remixx and it was great fun. I’m going to look like a coward for this,but here goes. After listening to all this great music,I can only say that there are no 1..2..or 3.Funny,there can be a last place … not a bad last place,just different. There so much talent here,that it was really an honor to be in it. Keep up the great work..keep those samples coming & thank you.

P.S. “DREAM THAT DREAM”…a track using some more of your samples coming.

Neil

You’re over analysing a bit there, my friend ;)

I guess that’s true… but there’s got to be a better way to put the whole “personal taste” up to respect. I mean.. You probably was sometimes enoyed or negatively affected by people strongly stating the are right when you know that they aren’t… OK that’s cool when it doesn’t get you involved…blabla
Long stories…
Maybe I’m a little pissed off atm because social networks are getting destroyed by …………….. and I like socialise! (especially about music production) :)

Congratulations to the winners: Jackie, 3ee, and Rachmiel.

I’ve already had 198 plays of my Track worldwide.

I received a lot of very encouraging comments.

I learnt a lot.

I guess that makes me a ‘winner’ too! :)

Thanks for hosting the Competition.
