The $35 2009 SoOn Compo
« on: September 25, 2009, 07:55:27 »

SoOn is sponsoring a competition in the spirit of the Scene compo tradition and to make it a bit more interesting we’ll buy you a beer (or two) if you end up in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place.

1st place prize is $20
2nd place prize is $10
3rd place prize is $5

Here are the rules:

1. You must use at least 10 seconds of one or more of the 10 samples provided. This sample must be identified (via text). But…. You can time shift, reverse, transpose – do anything you’d like in any software and throw it all together in any style with any additional sounds you desire. Do something glorious – make a mockery of the contest – it doesn’t matter – whatever is best wins!

There are samples at this profile

http://www.traxinspace.com/profile/2009sooncontest

Or at this URL

http://2009contest.soonlabel.com

2. Prize payment will be made via paypal – that is where I have the money for this event stored. If you can’t get a free account then I can’t help you.

3. A minimum of five (5) entries are needed to trigger payment of the prizes.

4. Entries are open until 23:59:59 October 31st 2009 GMT

5. Voting starts 00:00:00 November 1st 2009 GMT and ends November 7th 2009 GMT

6. Voting will be tallied by Tricky on TiS. Send him a TiS PM or submit your vote by emailing 2009vote at soonlabel.com which will be forwarded to him. His decision of the winners is final.

7. Entry URLs will be posted to this thread by the entrant or Tricky or myself. Email 2009vote at soonlabel.com with your URL if you do not have or want a TiS account.

8. SoOn members are eligible to compete – only I can’t since it’s my money and that would make little sense…. Wouldn’t it?

9. I’d like to thank all of the SoOn members who contributed samples for the contest

I think that covers it.

This question has come up on other forums

you can use anything else with the sample(s) in any style you'd like using any combination of additional samples, performance, VSTi, buzz machines, etc. Maximum creativity is the goal and the SoOn samples are used to wrap around the compo.

if you do not post your entry on the traxinspace you must email the link to 2009vote at soonlabel.com in order to have either Tricky or me post it at Traxinspace for you.

If you need hosting for your song I can provide that.

Of course - you can post your tune where ever you'd  like and drum up as many votes as you'd like.

ANYONE can vote  - just PM tricky at traxinspace or use 2009vote at soonlabel.com

A fourth entry just came in:

From the Renoise forum by Eat Me called "Used All Of The $35"

Song Info: http://www.electrobel.nl/muzik/1538/EatMe__Used_All_Of_The__35

Download MP3: http://www.electrobel.nl/mp3/1538-eatme-%20Electrobel.nl-EatMe+-+Used+All+Of+The+%2435.mp3

Play in browser: http://www.electrobel.nl/flash_mp3.php?song=1538

I have used only samples from the remix pack. Cutted out sounds from the sound fx, added volume slides to piano, keys,
bass guitar, conga and that other drums. The beat is distorted low passed from the music, the piano clickclaks also.
The guitar solo is left intact, except for the loop at the end with fading in distortion. The field recording is in the
background. The track was made with a registered version of Renoise 2.1, using the internal effects and free VST effect
freeverb2.

I was asked if someone can enter twice on modplug

Well, I didn't consider if someone wanted to enter twice.

Since there is money on the line it wouldn't be fair necessarily.

But I understand that people want to have fun and I am NOT policing this competition in any way shape or means. I'm not, for instance, demanding proof of sample use - and if you get your extended family to vote for you... well I guess good for you.

So my suggestion is that anyone who wants to enter more than once do so with an alias I am not aware of.
