Get ready for the Remix Cohmpetition 2010, and we bet that it’s been a while since the last time you’ve seen a prize kit that fat in a music production contest out there. For those who don’t have all Ohm Force plug-ins yet it’s a great opportunity to finally cohmpleting the whole Ohm collection, while taking advantage of the moment to put hands on some additional gear.
The prizes: our friends from Camel Audio will offer to the big winner their most recent release, the mighty Alchemy synth! Then a bundle Camel Phat + Camel Space and a Cameleon 5000 synth to 2nd and 3rd places, respectivelly. It goes on with Dave and Sharooz – the two sound magicians behind Sample Magic – offering their 144-page book “The Secrets Of House Music Production” to each one of the three winners. And this time we’ll go beyond software: thanks to our generous friends from Muse Research and Development, and also from KVR Audio, we’re gonna give a Receptor2 to the big winner! We’re talking about a powerful plug-in host, a U$2000 value piece of stand alone hardware that can be used on the studio or on stage to run your Ohm Force VST plug-ins – or any other VST plug-in you’ll install on it.
The “Public’s Choice” award: in addition of the prizes for the best 3 remixes, there’s a “Public’s Choice” category in which the whole cohmpetition audience will be able to vote. Thanks to Novation and Future Publishing the audience’s favorite will grab nothing less than one of the best midi-controllers in the world – the mighty 25 SL MkII – and a Computer Music magazine’s subscription for a whole year!
The track to be remixed: is “Stride”, the new release from talented american progressive house producer/DJ Derek Howell (also check his discography at Discogs). What you have to do is pretty simple: go now to the Cohmpetition’s page at our blog, listen to the track, download the sample pack, use Ohm Force’s Frohmage filter and/or Symptohm:Melohman Performer Edition synth when producing your remix and… show your talent to the world! Don’t forget to read the rules before starting your remix. The submissions should be sent until February 28th 2010, the 3 winners will be chosen by the Ohm Force and Derek himself and the final result will be announced at the beginning of March. Shall the best win!
