Remix contests are a tradition on Rekkerd, and a brand new one has been launched a few days ago. What’s particularly interesting is that the rules have changed a little, compared to the previous contests in which the goal was to make a track using only the samples provided for the purpose. This time around, it is possible to use the provided samples together with any of your other musical tools, and the goal is to make a tune which relates to autumn. It’s a marvelous choice of theme I think, since these rainy autumn days tend to have a rather inspirational effect on me. It certainly seems like this will be a proper fun contest!
Of course, winning the contest means getting some neat prizes, and here’s what Rekkerd has prepared for this one:
- Urs at u-he is offering a copy of Zebra2, the popular virtual wireless modular synthesizer for PC and Mac. Some of contest pack samples were done with this excellent plug-in.
- One lucky winner will get to pick four (4!) products of his/her choice from Cinematique Instruments‘s catalogue of rare and unique instrument sample libraries.
- Last but not least you can win a Reason 5 ReFill of your choice from The Loop Loft, the boutique sample shop of drummer/producer/loop guru, Ryan Gruss.
The contest is open until November 21st, and one entry per contestant is allowed. If you’re interested and feel inspired, head on to Rekkerd for more details, contest rules, and a download link for the contest sample pack. Good luck with your autumn tune!
