No rules!

A bunch of rules.

One entry per contestant.

Participants must post their track in this thread. No private emails. Use Soundcloud, Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, or whatever works for you. Important! Track must be downloadable!

After December 10th, participants reply in this thread with votes for their favourite 3 tracks. No private votes. No voting for yourself. Participants have 5 days to vote for their top 3. Participants who don’t vote in this thread before December 16th are disqualified.

Bonus votes:

  • If a participant shares an XRNS, then the votes they received from other participants are multiplied x3.
  • If a participant writes a mini-review for their top 3, then they get 1 bonus vote.
  • If a participant writes a mini-review for every track in the compo, then they get 3 bonus votes.

The top ~8 tracks (give or take) will be subject to some elaborate voting ceremony posted on YouTube as a video a few days later. Winners chosen at random from the top ~8.

This round i will definately lose big time, my goal this year is to get one of the prestigious bottom placements.

I am a bit confused. Is there a sample pack provided somewhere?

As I read it, you’re free to use your own samples, no restriction to a specific pack.

Anything goes, as long as it’s somehow shit? OK, I’m in :slight_smile:

Same as last year, if entrants can upload the songs to their Soundcloud and then post them in this thread, I’ll create an official playlist on the deadline. The song order will be picked randomly.
