2nd August 2012
After a two year hiatus we are very pleased to announce that the KVR Developer Challenge is back for 2012! This is the fourth free-for-all audio plug-in / audio application / soundware design event.
The "KVR Developer Challenge" is for anyone who develops Audio Plug-ins or Applications and, new for this year, Soundware. The challenge is to create and release a brand new free audio plug-in, application or sound library / pack / set that will benefit the community at large. Creativity is key, it can be as simple or as complex as you want.
KVR members will vote on the entries and pick the eventual winner using whatever criteria they choose to.
The prize fund is from donations - the last Challenge in 2009 achieved a prize fund of almost $2000! Can we beat it this year?
Anyone can make a donation via PayPal and the prize fund will be distributed to the eventual winners with the main chunk going to the highest rated Windows and Mac OS X software (for details of the prize breakdown please see the DC 12 page).
Prizes for Entering, Donating and/or Voting
Additional prizes are also being donated by plug-in and soundware developers / companies. These will be awarded to various entrants, donaters and voters when the DC is over by means of a random draw. So simply by donating or voting (when voting begins in November) will give you a chance to win something!
For the launch we have additional prizes from Cableguys, Resonance Sound, Subsonic Labs and u-he with more to come. If you are a developer and you would like to donate a prize or three please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
