This month your submission should follow this text:
Only percussion, whatever the style is, drumrolls, fills, tribal, afro cuban beats, asian taikos, congas, bongos, tibetan bowls, sticks, beat vox, cowbells, punch your guitar in a percussive way, but not melodic...
No other sounds, no basslines, no melodies, no pads, no textures, no choirs.
Submissions MUST follow these rules:
1 - Encoded in either .mp3 (192kbps or lower if fixed rate ... average of 192kbps or lower if VBR) or .ogg format (quality level 6.00 or lower)
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.
1 - knockman
2 - watto
3 - slartibartfast
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) Sunday, November 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 Saturday, December 1st. Anyone voting for themselves will find ALL their votes disqualified; any entrants not voting will also be disqualified.

evo2slo - The Adventures of Gourdman
Gourdman and some of his friends:
This picture shows all the non-sampled instruments used. When I travel I always try to get a percussion instrument from wherever I go. Starting from the bottom left to right: a Sahrawi tribal drum (one of my most prized possessions), the one and only Gourdman(!), talking drum, percussion frog, goumbe, tambourine, Tibetan gong, Indian tabla, Tibetan singing bowl, hand-painted guitar (wedged a sock under the saddle to mute the strings), and cabasa.
All percussion instruments as well as hand claps and beatboxing/chanting were recorded with a Shure SM7B microphone into an Apogee Duet.
Sampled instruments were all single hits from Cinematic Percussion and Goldbaby FXpansion Geist expansion packs.
Processed in Cubase 6.5 with host plugs, Camel Audio CamelSpace, u-he Uhbik, FXpansion DCAM Dynamics, Waldorf Lector, VallhallaRoom, PSP Echo, and Izotope Ozone.
