That seems just in time when I'm learning Massive ;) But to be sure, I have two questions:
1. Any synth means also commercial or only free?
2. Are the factory sounds allowed? Or they must be our creations only?

Thanks :)

Thanks for the questions. I was wondering if I should clarify the Any Synth bit. Yeah commercial is allowed.

There is no prejudice for how you use the synth, so any presets are allowed

No, still has to follow the usual synth rules - no sampling. I'll update to clarify

Extra Clarification:

Any Synth means: eg:
Additive, Modular, Physical modeling, Spectral, Phase Distortion, FM, Subtractive, wave table (like z3ta or Dune), etc. No samplers, romplers, or samples. (exception: Some synths have samples and synthesis, like Alchemy, so use the non-sampling part, and specify. If you have questions PM me, or ask on this thread).

Commercial FX means:
You may use any commercial FX, observing the normal rules, as you would freeware or native daw fx. So no pitch bending, sample based fx, or chorus, etc. See rules for more information.

Submissions:
Please specify the synth you have chosen in your submission.

Highly flexible synth. After I saw the word "sauna", I knew it was some sort of joke :lol:

Oh wow! That's great! I'm in then (in spite of my primitive mixing skills :hihi: ).

Yes, I did read the rules. Seems flexible and very fair for me :) I just need later to use the compression and EQ (and a limiter). All the reverb/chorus ..etc are inside the synth.

This is a great idea to not be restricted to free synths only. Nothing against free of course, but my favourite synths are not free (that's it).

To be honest, I don't care for the prize or winning! I just want a good 'motive' or 'excuse' to do just this! One synth only track.

Please keep it unrestricted (free or commercial) in the future :pray:
