Do a song about an animal(s) , or be a animal or sound like an animal, or combine, do something creative.


Submitted by 28 Nov

Time Limit: 3 Min

Submissions MUST follow these rules:

1 - Encoded in either .mp3 .ogg (.Wav .Flac) format.
In use of Wav or Flac, you need to offer Mp3 also, so people can choose.

2 - Time Limit: 3 Min

3 - Entered into the contest by posting a DIRECT LINK (note: THIS MEANS A DOWNLOAD 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.

2 - watto
3 - slartibartfast

In addition... has offered "self service" space. Log into the forum to find out more.

4 - Submitted by Nov 28

5 - Your entry(s) must be composed specifically for this contest (or, if a cover, arranged/recorded specifically for this contest).

6 - Your entry(s) must be created with audio plugins or software studio.

7 - Your entry should have the FILE named in a format of "yearmonth_artistname_tracktitle" (eg "1909_MonDieu_OxygeneXVII.mp3"), where the artist name is the same as your KVR name. Please do not use spaces and special characters in the filename. 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.

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 - Resubmission of your track is allowed in the same post, so long you do it before the voting begins.

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. 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 hellfog.

Enceladus is the 6th largest moon of Saturn. In 2005 the Spacecraft Cassini discovered water-rich plumes venting from the south polar region. Further studies revealed that these plumes are emitted from a large sub-surface ocean, most likely as a result of hydrothermal activity on the ocean floor. Researchers concluded that the ocean of Enceladus is a potentially habitable environment for extraterrestial life.

In 2032 a new space mission was launched. A probe would land on Enceladus, penetrate the ice crust and explore the waters below. However, shortly after reaching the ocean floor all contact with the probe was lost. It was never recovered. What remains are the sounds which were transmitted live during its descent.
Some believe that what we are hearing in this recording must be a species of large aquatic animals circling around the probe. This theory has met with strong opposition from a majority of scientists though.
Anyway, here it is. Decide for yourself.

DAW = Reaper 6.41

Instruments = 3 x ReaSamplOmatic5000
Samples = 1 Stash, Forest Kit, Animal Sounds
Effects = SPAN, ReaEQ, 3 x ReaLimit
Tempo = 960BPM

extratone usually goes from 1000BPM to 10000BPM but 960BPM was the maximum for me.

Under the scandinavian peninsula and north see there lives a dragon population. Some their teens while visiting the scottish highlands happened the hear a solitary human musician recording bagpipes. When the young dragons approached the piper he fainted.

An opportunity for the dragons! Mischievously they added some strongly fxed dragon roarsinging to the mix, then went their way.

The piper's mind couldn't handle seeing dragons, nor accept that some tracks in his mix apparently came from nowhere. Thus when he woke up and listened his recording, his mind invented a belief and memories that it was all his own doing.

We live in such a strange world...

As I'm not a big fan of animals and I've never owned a pet I decided to write it about my mate and his dog Dave. The title of the song is his pedigree name.
