Let's do this! Don't get too excited yet though, I don't plan on starting the contest until December 1st, so that MMC is out of the way.
Never competed in an SPC before? There's a bit of introductory spiel and some downloads here to help you get the jist. I'll explain in more detail when the contest starts, but feel free to ask any questions now if you like. Let's focus on submitting samples for now.
No special stipulations this time. Anything goes.
SAMPLE SUBMISSION RULES:
- Send (up to) 3 WAV files. The sounds can be of anything (doesn't have to be recorded from a mic) ~ the more eclectic weird wonderful and less piano-ey, the better.
- Format should be 44.1KHz 16 bit (if they aren't, they will be converted.) Mono or stereo is permitted.
- Each WAV must be no longer than 4 seconds.
- Keep them anonymous - do not say what you submitted, and do not name them in a way that would reveal you as the author.
- Avoid increasing the pitch of sounds to get them under the length limit. Can't easily enforce this, but there it is anyway.
- No taking a 12 second sample and cutting in 3rds to circumvent the length limit that way either! 3 similarly themed samples is permitted but discouraged (for instance, the two quakeguy samples from SPC4.)
- Samples should be 'one-shot' (ie. no combining a bunch of different sounds into one WAV.) Something like a drumbreak is okay though. Use common sense~
- No "chipped" sounds (very short loops.)
- The assumption is that if you submit samples you'll also be entering a song. Can't enforce this either, but I'm a good nag. ;] Basically, if you don't think you'll enter yourself, don't send in samples.
Samples will be topped+tailed to remove silence.
SAMPLE SUBMISSION HAS NOW CLOSED. The pack will be released December 1st. Prelminary deadline for songs is January 7th (I think MMC could resume January 1st while votes and stuff is going on.)
