Sample Remix Contest: Win Prime Loops samples

43
Prime Loops

Anyone up for another sample remix contest? This time we have an exclusive competition in association with Prime Loops.

Prime Loops has provided a sample remix pack including various samples from their recent releases. Unlike last time, you’ll only get a few samples to play with. And because you get less to work with, I’ve decided you can also use whatever else you want to create your entry so you can really do your own thing here.

You have until October 31st, 2008 (11.59pm, your local time) to create a song for this contest.

Sample remix contest rules

  • Create a track using at least one of the samples supplied in the remix pack. You can remix/process the sample(s) any way you want. The entry should be under 5 minutes and be submitted as an mp3 (192kbit minimum).
  • Upload the track and let me know where I can find it (i.e. Rapidshare, Megaupload). You can also email me the mp3 file directly.
  • Voting will commence on November 1st and will last for 1 week. Voting will be open to contest participants only and you need to vote to be eligible to win any prize (details will follow later).

Note: For this contest you may also use any host, instrument, effect or sample for your entry (just keep it legit so don’t use pirated software or anything like that).

Download the sample pack below (11.3 MB)

What’s in it for you?

Prime Loops has generously offered some prizes. First place winner takes home $200’s worth of exclusive Prime Loops Sounds suites of his/her choice. Two runners up will get a free Prime Loops Sound Suite each.

I will regularly update this page with entries. Good luck everyone, and have fun!

Update: All the entries are in so you can now listen to the contest entries in the flash mp3 player (you can download the files from the flash player by right mouse clicking on them).

Update 2: You can also download all the entries in a zip archive (~78MB).

Voting

Voting is now open (for participants only). Please pick your top 3 and post them in the comments on this page. Note: you can NOT vote for your own entry.

1st place gets 3 points, 2nd gets 2 points and 3rd place gets 1 point. Whoever has the most points in the end wins.

Voting ends on Sunday, November 8, 11.59:59pm CET. You can only vote ONCE, and you NEED to vote in order to be eligible to win.

Good luck everyone!

I find it strange that the artist can’t vote for themselves. The President votes for himself.

My first reaction was that rocking the 4-on-the-floor kickdrum definitely makes an appearance or two :) And then comes the hard decision of who rocks it best.

Alright, for me, number one is
Romeyboy – Remix

number 2 is
Taufx – Russian Winter

and number three is
Mokeone – Number 1

To be honest, many of the tracks are not my taste at all, even though I did try to give them all a chance and listen for things that might appeal to me somehow. Also I don´t quite know if it´s a good or a bad thing that many of the participants have used the samples given unedited… It does show a certain ability to “adapt”… but it might just aswell be lazyness? :D I´ll never know ;) personally, I chose to use one of the two vocal samples (cut, layered, filtered, reverbed) along with 1 synth stab (cut, filtered,… Read more »

Well this was tough, all of the track were good. So i guess I boil it down to the one’s I found my self listening to the most.

#1: Josef Loibner
#2: Survei Hip-Hop
#3: Vladimir Alykov

To Vladimir, I know in my case using the samples mostly dry was a little of both in terms of laziness and adaptability. I put of working on the track until there where only a few days left and didn’t have too much time to muck things up.

Good Luck to my fellow participants and thanks to those who voted for mine.

Vladimir made an interesting comment about folks using the samples unedited. I think it’s easy to tell when someone’s using an unedited sample, but it’s hard (for me) to tell when someone’s using a sample that has been processed a lot. So they may have some really dry samples from the pack, but they might also have some from the pack that are so processed and “misused” you can’t tell it came from the pack. An example of this in my own song, you’ll notice the hook lead is a very wobbly sound layered with a plucked string instrument. What… Read more »

I don’t think it matters whether you can hear the samples or not. All that matters is whether the track is composed and produced well, and whether or not you enjoy listening to it.

In other words, Aphex Twin could have taken all the samples, and we would never know where they came from, but could make a really great track.
