This competition is about having fun and pushing audiotool to see what it is capable of. Do not shy away from this competition if you are new to audiotool because setting yourself challenges is a sure way to improve. I encourage everyone to be active in the comments and to offer words of advice to one another so that we can all learn something from this.
1. For a track to place in the "top 3" it must be made entirely with audiotool's synths, tools, samples and effects.
2. If another DAW is used partially or completely then the track may still make it into the "honourable mentions" catogory.
3. Last year there were cases of rudeness in the comments between entries - any arguments in the comments or unpleasant behaviour will result in a disqualification.
4. The deadline is 01 . 01 . 17 00:00 GMT. If a track is submitted at any point after the deadline then it cannot be guaranteed to receive a fair judgement.
There are a team of 5 independent judges this year. Apart from myself, none of these judges are active in the audiotool community and will therefore not be biased.
All the judges are on music production, audio engineering and acoustics degrees at university and will be putting their knowledge into the judgements.
As with last year, there will be a prize (however, I will need to sort this out).
There were a few problems with handing out the prizes last year, if you are still awaiting your prize please accept my apology and contact me through my soundcloud at (link is only visible to registered users) .
Let's make this another great competition.
