- Imported Samples are not allowed: There is plenty of scope with the samples provided in the synth.
- Effects: For this month only the rules on Fx type are relaxed i.e. modulations, distortions, granular etc. may all be used (and can go full 11!) as long as the source sound is from the K1v - no external sound generators or audio rate modulations. All Fx used must be freeware and be freely available at the start of the competition, no betas.
Welcome to the One Synth Challenge #153! It's a friendly music competition where you can win cool prizes but most importantly, meet amazing musicians, and learn a lot about mixing, sound design, and more!
Here's How It Works:
- Download our synth of the month here
- You make an awesome track before the 1st of next month using only the chosen synth and some effects *Rules Apply*
- Announce your submission here on this thread, with proper details
- At minimum, please mention # of instances of the synth, the DAW (Reaper, Ableton, etc), and all plugins.
- Submit your soundcloud link here following the correct format for title, download enabled, and submission description. Your song will be picked up on the OSC player
- Once submissions are over, the voting starts - you *MUST* vote to get a ranking or prize
- The voting link will be posted on the 1st, and OP will be updated.
- Maybe you win? You meet new friends? Learn something new?
- Most importantly... have fun!
**MAKE SURE YOU READ THE RULES** | See Contest Page for latest track Submissions, Info, FAQ & More
Submissions will show up here once voting starts (n/a):
And now for something completely different... K1v is an epic emulation of a classic Japanese rompler, compatible with the original hardware!
