The $35 2009 SoOn Compo
« on: September 25, 2009, 05:55:05 »
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.


OR

here is the sample pack plus instructions

What about the samples that are less than 10s long? :)


Sounds interesting! I might start on it a go when I get back from my holiday.

you got me on that one - I guess you have to use more than one - or... repeat it!

and... I had a typo - just need to ID the sample by text - I used... A or B or whatever.

It would be interesting, clones, but here in this stupid country we can create PayPal accounts just to make payments, not to receive. Still I may enter just for lulz, for I have something in my sleeve :D

Nahkranoth,

Yes I knew some people would be unable to receive the prize. At one point LV said he had the same problem.

I truly apologize for that. The only other solution would be for me to snail mail something and I didn't want to promise exposing my real street address to strangers. For an acquaintance I might work out something but I can't promise that.

It would be great if you would still participate!

I'd recommend to stay away from snail mail. I guess people enter such contests just for fun, not for the money (at least if considerable amount is not involved). Oh man! I just made a big mistake promising to participate, it should end with an epic fail for me now LOL

Thank you, clones, but remembering my previous promises to enter the compo I've got a little scared :D I hope this time my mouse and motherboard will behave themselves :lol: In this case it will surely be ready for October!

Since this has been asked a couple times at other forums:


you can use anything else with the sample(s) in any style you'd like using any combination of addition 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

Announced the compo at louigiverona.ru

It would be good if the rules of the compo were written somewhere on the page of SoOn, so that it would be more clear to people. When they see rules on a forum post, they are less likely to get interested. At the moment the organization in my opinion is a bit vague - go here, write to this email, go to this site to submit... too many resources for one compo if you know what I mean and many people from outside might not want to register at modplug, then TiS to just take part in a compo.

Yeah, I have to change the link from pointing to this forum to the SoOn page - otherwise even if someone from my site does come it won't register.
