This sample pack is officially a record breaker: a whopping 45 samples! And there could be even more samples coming!
indeed there is. 48 now, since i just submitted my three.
it isn't a simple case of "the more samples, the better" unfortunately. in the previous SPC and maybe others before it as well, there was a similar surge of interest in participation, and as a result some people submitted 2 or less samples after realising that there would be a big pile of 'em. it isn't necessarily good to have a lot of samples for two reasons. a)
because if there's too many it removes some of the challenge of "making do", b)
it can discourage people away from making their own new sounds, which is a big part of the appeal.
i notice you have a thing about records. you should understand that the idea here isn't to get as many samples as possible, neither is it worthy of merit to submit the most songs into SPC for the sake holding a faux record. it isn't like a fundraiser or poll where more=better, or an olympic record where one must put in long hard hours of work, determination and skill to see off fierce competition to earn it.
