Free for all. No rules just your imagination.

Time Limit: No limit

Submitted by Aug 26
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: No limit

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 Aug 26, Around 22:00 (Swedish TIME )

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 artistname 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 until early a.m, October 1st. 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.

Finally got round to doing something - Some indie rokk bombast then, possibly veering a bit into p*** a little on account of the daft song structure. Lots and lots of bass VI in this though, which is always a good thing. Now, to remember how to write pop songs.. ... veneer.mp3

Apologies to Bacharach/David/for the first line..Don't know why, couldn't help it. You should always 'borrow' something. In this case, a few things.. :hihi:

The dashboard of doom;

Revelation Bass VI (in Fiesta Red) ..naturally
Revelation 12 string electric guiitar
Line 6 Variax 6 string electric guitar
Lindo Zodiac 12 string acoustic (the one with the err..DENIM finish)
Epiphone 6 string acoustic
Addictive Drums
The crooning.
...the usual PC testing cornucopia of effects

Tonica fugata is some kind of automatic composer. I got an opportunity to have it process a melody I made. The music you hear is not the raw output of the fugata, instead I just picked the best bars and discarded the rest, then some tweaks.


MuseScore, Tonica Fugata, Waveform, Halion Sonic SE, no FX
