No problem. You can amend your list right up to the end of voting. Do add some comments via Soundcloud if you can. Even it's only to say "Yes! I like this transition/chord change" etc!

I have Pro too but just was using Chrome and have never heard an ad yet on Soundclound.

I am also sorry to everyone getting advertising on my track being pro means we can monetise it too if I am lucky I might have made a whole 8c back lol.

Have voted.

I believe, this is one of the rare occasion in the last few years of my OSC participation where I have given plenty of 5s and 4s.

As i don't (rarely ever) comment on OSC tracks, i feel it is necessary to explain how I go about awarding points in OSC.

I am a sucker for catchy tunes (regardless of the song's mixing or sound design). So, my reasoning behind awarding 5 or 4 points is based on the simple concept of Songs that touched a chord with me (with plus/minus near pro sounding mixing and sound designing). The remaining songs get 3 points (no 2 pointers from me, this time).

All the songs (multiple times over the last week or so) were listened using my year old el cheapo IEMs from Boult Audio on a Laptop.

Cheers!

Only took 8 days but....

VOTED

I must say of all the comps I've taken part in I really like the voting mechanism in OSC the best. Its really transparent and user friendly. Kudos to whomever designed that.
I like E-Dm but I like music with other chords too

Yeah. I also intend to go back and comment on SC. I'll only have the bandwidth to do that on my 5* votes and hopefully I'll get to it this week.

If you get annoyed by the ads (who doesn't?), I find that you can close down the SC session and re-open again via the voting page it then plays without the ad - no need to listen all the way through.

Hope it works for you.

If you had submitted first for Surge, you could have gotten 30k listens over a couple years. That might get you 8 cents.

I have voted.

Thank you all for your kind and helpful replies. Due to the stunning ammount of submissions I was not able to comment under every piece, but I am deeply impressed by the large ammount of good tracks. It feels like I found a well trained and skillful community here, I'm already looking forward to the next challenge.
Cheers

I have voted and manage to comment on all the tracks despite Soundcloud blocking me from commenting (for making too many comments!). :)

Well done everyone and a warm welcome to all the newcomers. Hope some of you stay around for the next challenges. This is a good place to make music, get helpful comments and suggestions from fellow musicians. If you get to the top 5 (and claim a prize) , then that's a super bonus. :party:

Here you have the incentive to make a track and finish it (we are all guilty of not finishing tracks eh?), and also learn how to program a new synth each month, and get help with mixing and mastering. :D

All in all, a great place. :clap:

Finally, big thanks to Richard and Brian for keeping this challenge going. I'm sure we all very much appreciate the work that goes into maintaining everything. Stars, both of you! :tu: :clap: :clap:

I'm afraid I'm done voting. I had to somewhat revise my votes, because I've been a little grumpy lately. That's also the reason I mostly refrained from commenting. Apologies for that...

The voting page does not work with your KVR login. You have to make a different account on that page. Also, before you ask, this month, the page seems to have a problem with firefox. Best use a different browser.
