        What doe's, do not use hosting with countdown, CAPTCHA and other obstacles mean?

        Also I don't understand this >

        except instruments which will use only given contest sample loaded.
        Any other processing of contest sample is permitted.


        Or this >
        Winner SHOULD disclose the formula for winning track for the benefit of community?
        ....doe's that mean, to explain how they mixed their track?

        Could you please explain alittle more in lamens terms
        ....what all the above mean?

        I just don't understand what the rules mean.
        and what it is exactly that you want an AO member to do?
        As you know I am new, so learning the ropes in here is alittle scatty for me
        .

        Thanks

          Hi,
          I'll try to answer to the best of my knowledge - if you have more questions, Metadronos is in charge of supervising this part of the forum, he'll be able to clarify, too.

          So, the overall goal of this "game" is, you only get one sample ...in this case the one I uploaded, and you can only use this as a basis: no synths, no other sounds allowed - however, you can process, mangle, sample, etc. the sample in anyway you like - all the tracks you find in the other threads have been created using this method. That's the fun part - it's a challenge & it forces you to be creative with little.

          As for your particular questions: 1) hosting without CAPTCHA and so on simply means, if you are providingthe sample (as I did this time round) make sure there's no hassle and everybody can quickly & easily download the file.
          2) As mentioned above, no other samples, synths, etc. allowed - however, you can process the one sample any way you want.
          3)Exactly as you understood it. If you submit, or later when you win, tell the others how you made the track - we all might learn something this way.

          ok - hope this answers some questions!
          cheers, phoenstorm

              cool! looking forward to that! in your earlier post you mentioned daw tools - yes but also all kinds of other plugins...a lot of people here like to stretch audio; samplers, and even some synths can process samples - just make sure no other soundsources are added - apart from that, go wild !

                Yeh I deleted that post regarding my mentioning of the daw application, as I felt it may have been a silly thing to ask, of course a daw/vstfx's can be used lol.

                But yeh nice 1 for the heads up, I will deffo give it a whirl, and thanks again for your patience n time with my questions about the rules.

                I just felt alittle in the dark about them, but am learning :thumbsup:

                    my apologies for an apparently uninspiring sample - well...that's the wrong way of putting it because Metadronos' aturtuduci absolutely rocks! Come on, you simply forgot to upload here, let us hear what you came up with :biggrin:

                      Redacted


                      Not really happy with this one, a lot of the complexity I was hoping for got lost in the 'mastering' (ha! just compression to even it out a little...)

                      But if you're into clangy, droney murk then it may be for you.

                      Not much to this one, chopped up samples with some delay, dusting of reverb and a couple of tracks processed with the Stellar reaktor ensemble (different settings fading in and out).

                              Ok, seeing as we have more time I had another go at 'mastering' my entry...

                              Managed to lose a lot of the murk so hopefully some of my intentions come through a bit better now.
