So, neuro hop homie Tex (over at Neurohop Forum) has announced a contest for all electronic producers! (and, well, ESPECIALLY *neuro* producers)
I’m not going to re-write what he already posted, so permit me to be “that blog-douche” and copy+paste what he already took the time to write….
(that’s pretty much what most music blogs do 98% of the time, as is! Ha.)
Hey guys, the first ever Neurohop Forum reese modulation competition is among us.
Entries may be submitted from now (28 February) through till Friday the 15th of March. Then there shall be 3 days for people to listen to everything and vote for the one they feel is the best.
Here is your chance to show us what you can do when you are thrown a mere 2 massive patches and have to modulate and arrange yourself a masterpiece!!
Armed with the 2 massive patches in the download below and a vocal sample the aim of the competition is to make a 30 second “drop” where you have to be as creative as you can with what you have.
-Maximum clip length of 30 seconds
-Maximum of 2 entries per person
-Entries must be sent with a download link to firstname.lastname@example.org
-Please include artist name and state whether it is clip 1 or clip 2 if you are submitting more than one entry in the file name
-You may add drums and other samples at your discretion but make sure you use the samples that are provided and do not add any extra bass sounds
-The patches can be changed mildly if you please however the aim of the game is to modulate and change the sound through creative use of effects and automation
-Keep between 99-110 bpm
-Do not use copyrighted samples (at least ones that could be recognized) to avoid anyone getting into trouble.
The winning clip shall be decided by YOU the Neuro hoppers. All posted entries will be uploaded to this Soundcloud page, https://soundcloud.com/neurohop-forum-comps where users will be able to listen to all of them and make their decisions. The final step is the users then vote for their favorite artist in a poll created on this forum with the person with the most votes being crowned the winner.
Note that only registered users can vote on forum polls so any outsiders will have to sign up before they can vote.
You guys wanted a prize?
We found something that might be appealing….. Donated by our very own Strangeflow……
The grand prize winner shall receive this sample pack as a reward for their brave Neuro feats.
This is one seriously good sample pack for producing Neuro stuff.
A runner up prize will be announced if there is high enough votes on another entry.
