Postby D.H. Miltz; Fri Feb 01, 2013 3:08 am February Contest: Submissions

Two

This month you are asked to submit an entry with two sections or movements. The sections should represent related concepts (e.g., the old year and the new; night and morning; climbing and being climbed).

________________________________________

Submissions MUST follow these rules:

1 - Encoded in either .mp3 or .ogg format.

2 - A STRICT MAXIMUM of three minutes in length. If it shows up as 3:01 in my player, it's getting the boot.

3 - entered into the contest by posting a DIRECT LINK in this RULES & SUBMISSIONS thread (use the GOSSIP thread for everything else). If you cant provide a direct link, please contact one of the following people listed below, they will be happy to help you out. These people provide free hosting for the purpose of this contest only! They are not a hosting service. When contacting these people, please take the effort to understand the terms and conditions they provide.

Providers:
1 - knockman
2 - watto
3 - slartibartfast

In addition...
Kara at www.kara-moon.com/forum has offered "self service" space. Log into the forum to find out more.

But wait! There's more! If you use SoundCloud to host your entry, you might find this tutorial by kryptonaut helpful. Bear in mind that SoundCloud's free accounts have a limit (per track) of 100 downloads.

4 - Submitted by early a.m. (US Central Time) Monday, February 25th, 2012.

5 - Your entry must be composed specifically for this contest.

6 - Your entry must be created using at least some audio plugins, virtual synths, or software studio.

7 - Your entry should have the FILE named in a format of "yearmonth_artistname_tracktitle" (ie "1206_artistname_tracktitle.mp3"), where the artistname is the same as your KVR name. Please do not use spaces and special characters in the filename. I will be booting for improperly named comps (this will not be a DQ, just a little reminder that you didn't tag your comp correctly). Special considerations will be given to those that have the hosting agent change the file name.

8 - If you are going to tag your mp3--and you should--the artist name is to be the same as your KVR name, and the title tag is to be the name of your tune(help us out, okay? it's easier to sift through labelled entries).

9 - One person can participate either with one entry, with one entry and one collaborative effort or with two collaborative efforts.

10 - Every submission has to be tagged with:
a) used instruments (virtual and 'real')
b) players' and singers' names (if other than entrant; collabs are allowed, sometimes encouraged, but they must be credited)
c) origin of loops and samples, if they're not free of copyright (this includes CreativeCommons material; please read and follow the license of the samples and loops you use); naming the origin of copyright free loops is also encouraged, but not mandatory. Please only use samples you are legally entitled to use.
d) name(s) of composer(s) -- if an entry is a cover this should be noted in the file name and/or the mp3 "Title" tag as well as the submission post (not everyone reads the submission posts).

11 - If there are strong doubts about the origin of the composition or parts of it, the participant should have the possibility to send a project file to the moderator, who could give it to a trustworthy person with the right host to examine it. Important: the participant should not be forced to do it.

12 - No resubmissions without permission from the moderator, INCLUDING for time-overage correction. PM me for permission!

13 - Any tracks not adhering to these guidelines will be very naughty indeed. Possibly disqualified upon peer review. And at least mocked for all to point and giggle.

14 - Voting (members must have at least 20 posts to vote ... although contest entrants are exempt from this ruling) will run from the submission deadline until early a.m Friday, March 1st. Anyone voting for themselves will find ALL their votes disqualified; any entrants not voting will also be disqualified.

If you have questions, send a private message to D.H. Miltz or ask in the gossip thread.

A song about us

Composed, recorded and engineered all in one and a half day. :D

Featuring us, ourselves and we, with lots of guitars, pianos (GPO and True pianos), Strings (EWQL), realdrums, and synths (Zeta+ and Zerba).

Recorded, mixed and engineered in the Dog-on-blues studio in South Africa by us on Sonar X2 Pro and polished with Izotope Ozone 3.

Composed in two movements representing the old us from the past (kinda sad, in our place, not too upsetteling) and us awakening in the second movement, getting on with life and, well in the end us must die. :P

Us hope you enjoy. Click the enjoy button and vote for us on the 25th of the month if you do. :wink:

(over)use of Freesounds samples :

85293-smokeyvw-doorbell

Got a bit lazy with the choice (& probably the treatment) of a dual theme: I was tempted for a while by crisps flavours (cheese & onion, salt & vinegar or scampi & lemon)but ended up with the slightly less salty old life/death association. However in an attempt to view it in a more optimistic way this is taken into the "death then life" order as in reincarnation.

Vera Digital vs. Dr. Rock (Kill Kill Kill vs. Homebrew)

Image

http://soundcloud.com/ruedirena/ruedirena-vera-digital-vs-dr

Listen to/download Miss Digital and Dr. Rock

This is about several contrasting themes, think:
Digital vs. Analog
Electronic Musik vs. Rock Music
Women vs. Men
Killing vs. Drinking Home-made Beer

Things I used in its making:
Part 1
Voices: Three lovely ĺadies from Germany, Japan and Spain provided by a certain well-known internet translation tool, an Englishman of the same origin and an angry young man from some free sample site.
Synths: Hydrogen Synthie1 Drums, Uhe Bazille (additional kick drum), Arguru Audio Voyager, Fab Filter Twin 2
DAW: Reaper
Track FX: ReaEQ, ReaComp, ReaPitch, JS Transient Driven Autopan, dBlue Glitch, Kjaerhus Classic Reverb, Autofilter, Flanger, Delay and Chorus, Lively Audio Maxwell Smart Limiter
Master FX: Maxwell Smart Limiter

Part 2
Voice: Me (having a rather bad cold which you can hear)
Guitar: Me on my trusty 1965 Vox AC30 and Fender Nashville Telecaster
Drums and Bass: My dear bandmates Bernd and Volker (Thanks, guys, for helping out)
Basic recording: Sandor Szabo
DAW: Reaper
Master FX: Maxwell Smart Limiter

Mastering and normalising: Audacity

Have fun! Help yourself to some homebrew!
Cheers
Ruedi

Ghosts:

http://sleek.phreque.com/1302_sleek_Ghosts.mp3

Daw is Cubase Essex3. Drums is Ez Drummer's Ludwig/Vintage kit with the room sound turned up and the strate drums real low.

Sinths are Synth One and Pentagon One. Electrical pinano is MDA Epiano. Vocals is processed through EZ mix. Guitar is this little $100 Vox modelling amp that sits on my desk and looks cute.

Bass is a base.
