It's time to hear the music that's all around you in our first ever samples-based production competition. Featuring a bunch of awesome prizes and an EP release on the IDMf netlabel comprised of the top tracks, we hope you'll get involved, experiment and explore new aural avenues!
» Only the samples in the sample-packs may be used to create your tracks. IOW - no other synths, samples, recordings or instruments!
» You're free to use as many or as few of the samples as you choose.
» You may do whatever you like to the samples, use whichever effects you like and use basic sampler functionality.
» You cannot use the samples as a wavetable for a synth, or use them in granular synths.
» Competition closes on the 30th November2012
» Only one entry per person
» Admin, mods and their families may not enter the comp.
» Please submit your files as.WAVand here comes the important bit: Please ensure that your master channel is empty, & that you have at least -3dB headroom.
» Please ensure at least -3dB headroom on your Master!
» Please email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org or upload them somewhere and pm me the link. If you do upload - please use somewhere that's easy to access!
» Name your files with your IDMf username and the track title.
I'd like to encourage everyone to take part in this comp, regardless of how long you've been making music. It's a great opportunity to branch out & try something new, to experiment and gain valuable experience as a producer / musician / sound tinkerer .

to be clear. you can only... ONLY use the samples to make the sounds. you CANNOT load them into a wavetable synth, use them as the oscillator for a synth or other plug-in etc.. whatever. the idea is to use the samples to create new sounds using ONLY the samples
so re-sample, resample, effect, re-sample some more. cut chop re-sample etc etc
