1. Opaqity:

Amazing tranquil swells are seasoned with jazzy overtones, being driven along by crystal clear drums and percussion.

This track is a perfect representation of the importance of dynamics throughout a track.

2. Kepz:

The use of syncopation makes this track to stand out, throwing away normal techno conventions. This tracks off-beat sub swells and tranquil pads steadily move the track onwards.

3. Dub Lion:

Lush harmonies and crispy clean percussion, this track is full of life and energy. Vocal cuts and rich halftime sections maintain interest while a lush piano fills the mid range.

4. Inavon:

This trance track has clever use of filtering to change the track and keep interest throughout. Occasional, subtle nods to acid house and beautifully instrumented breaks carry us on a journey.

5. Amoeba:

Beautifully produced, with a progressive urban style. Plenty of interesting variation throughout, so definitely worth listening from start to finish.

Thankyou to everyone that entered the competition. It has been really fun to listen to and judge this years entries as it shows how far the software has come, as well as how far you have all come.

Thanks,

Jacob

    no disrespect to dublion but the rules state no samples and you have obvious use of piano samples within that track. again no disrespect of course, just think that if you're really sticking with a certain system you should stay true to it.

      Jake kinda clarified that oneshots are allowed. He just created that rule to prevent entire synth lines from other DAWS from being used.

      i think of piano samples in audiotool sorta the same way as drums, they definetly werent made in adudiotool but that's because you can't. While the wirding of the rules didnt allow for it, I just think that piano samples were a small oversight, as it still fits in with the meaning of the rule, not to use someone else's work in your own song

    You guys are acting like this was a televised, $100,000 prize, huge competition. ATD, I believe, should resemble a chance to look back over the past year and really show yourself how far you've come in a single year as a producer. To get upset or bothered by the results is normal, but scrutinizing the judges for "bias" opinions is uncalled for.

    honestly i don't really agree with these results, you can tell there's a bias towards certain genres and while all of these are great songs, i wouldn't consider all of these to be the top 5
