Splice has launched a Firestarters contest in which you are to show off what sounds you can create with D16 Group’s Punchbox drum synthesizer for a chance to win a free copy.

You can grab the MIDI provided, or use your own and create some great drum sounds.

Punchbox is the secret weapon to a wide array of kicks and kits that can knock as hard or as soft as you heart desires. Its combination of synthesis, sample manipulation, and FX make it one of the most versatile drum synthesizers ever created. If you need a little help getting started we have a tutorial on how to make a full kit with it on our blog.

You can sign up for a free 3-day trial of Punchbox. Note that the trial requires a credit card, though you can cancel your trial right away and still have 3 days access to the plugin.
