FXpansion launches DCAM: Synth Squad - Name That Tune Competition


To celebrate the release of DCAM: Synth Squad v1.03 and the Himalaya: Antiquity preset pack, FXpansion is running a competition with some great prizes on offer.

To enter, first you need to watch the Synth Squad Recreations video (also embedded below), which contains cheeky versions of some classic synth-based songs produced entirely with DCAM: Synth Squad and Himalaya: Antiquity preset pack. All you have to do is name all 8 songs in the video.

The prizes up for grabs are as follows:

  • 2 x First Prize: Win copies of DCAM: Synth Squad, Himalaya: Antiquity, BFD Eco and GURU.
  • 3 x Runners Up: Win copies of DCAM: Synth Squad and Himalaya: Antiquity.

The rules are pretty simple:

  • You may enter the competition only once.
  • You must have an FXpansion user account (free to set up.) and be logged in.
  • The competition starts from May 31st 2010 and ends on July 1st 2010.
  • No purchase is necessary.
  • Winners will be drawn at random from all correct entries.

The recent release of DCAM: Synth Squad v1.03 brings up to 30% less CPU usage and 480 new presets. The new version is a free update for all registered customers.

Himalaya: Antiquity is a suite of premium 'retro'-style presets for DCAM: Synth Squad. FXpansion says that the scope of Antiquity's chunky, vintage sounds is "breathtaking", and its musical character will "keep you playing for hours". Himalaya: Antiquity is a download-only product priced at £25 / €29 / $39 and available from the FXpansion Shop.

Highlights include:

  • Fat, lush OB-style brass sounds and classic analogue leads and basses.
  • Deep, evolving pads, shimmering bells, funky arps, powerful keyboard and polysynth sounds.
  • Startlingly realistic selection of electric piano and keyboard sounds.
  • Raw Cypher presets and Fusor versions containing FX treatments and additional modulation.
