I'm just glad it's such a good song. It was a pleasure to mix and I caught myself singing it in my head several times afterwards.
Definitely looking forward to your mix. Keep in mind... you can submit, but not vote as headmaster.
Actually... I think voting should not(!) be limited to the participants. Unless it turns into a "please vote for me" outside of the competition. We still have a couple of weeks to set some rules for that.

This might be a start. But what if (for example) the second place is like "but I wanted it, now I won't take anything because the rest doesn't interest me"...
It's a bit of a new topic for me. Most of the times I joined competitions for either for fun and honor ([/turns off the echo]), or there was something different at stake (like a CD release).

I updated that.
Just for clarification (both directed at Eric and you)
- Sonivox sponsors either one of the plugins to the winner(s) until further notice?
- Camel Audio sponsors either one of the plugins to the winner(s) until further notice?
- Tone2 is the only company that sponsors two(!) plugins to the winner until further notice? We should make that somewhat clear.
Another thing to clear would be... How can the winners claim their prices? Contact the company and be like "hey, I'm the winner of MC. I'd like to get this plugin"?

One is already in
. I am expecting somewhere between 15-20. Time is short though. I want to join this myself have to find some time. Lets see how it goes.
I think the time will always be short. 2 weeks max is a realistic time. Of course we can extend that period and let stuff run in parallel (like: 1 month mixing, one month voting - while the voting is taking place, the next mix competition is running).
But I speak up for a streamlined, short competition. This way we have 2 weeks of work, 2 weeks of voting and taking a break. Keep in mind, the current OSC's and SWC's also overlap with the MC!

At least mention how much time you put into it, what your main focus was, maybe 2-3 essential plugins or suites, or if you used "host bundled stuff only" - point that out. Mention the highlights! If you're the winner, you can still go far out on this.
