April Music & Audio Contest - with Loftprod 🎼

We’re back for round 2! I’m excited to kick off our second music & audio contest, this time co-hosted by the amazing Loftprod, winner of last month’s contest! You are all in for a treat.

Once again, the rules are simple. Download this sample, an emotional string and piano piece composed by @loftprod, and make something awesome with it! Winner gets $100 in Fiverr credit, with potential prizes for 2nd and 3rd as well.

Use it as a backing track for an improvised solo on guitar, violin, synthesizer, or whatever you choose, write lyrics over it, remix it into a huge drop…any direction you take it works!

Here’s how it’ll work:

  1. What you make either has to include a part of the sample provided, OR contain some of the same chord progressions/melody of the composition (if you want to cover it). Keep your submission under 2 minutes.

  2. Submit your take in this form by April 27th, and post your submission in this thread. Extra points will be given to musicians that provide a video!

Once you do that, you’re in. Loftprod will help with selecting a creative and talented winner! Can’t wait to see what people put together this time around.

The sample is 110bpm and in the Strings Key is F Minor and Piano Key is C Minor

Ready… set… go!

EDIT: WE’RE EXTENDING THE DEADLINE TO MAY 3RD! Keep these awesome submissions coming!

Terms and conditions can be found here.

Oof. There’s some static in that piano sample I’m gonna have to fix. Maybe I can drop out some highs…

Happy birthday, @the_mad_duck! :cake:

No cheating by wishing for a win after blowing out your birthday candles. :wink:

Good luck, everyone. I’m looking forward to listening to all of the entries.

I have to chuckle at the crescendo of the low E♭ in the piano at 0:32. Fun things can be done with electronic instruments!

(I’m already formulating ideas…)

Hi everybody!!
This is amazing, I can’t imagine all the ideas that may be running through your creative minds right now, I absolutely can’t wait to listening to every single submission!
I wish you best of luck, everyone.
May the creativity be with you my music partners! :musical_keyboard: :musical_note: :musical_score:

@loftprod Great work on this sample (also totally gives me Linkin Park/Fort Minor vibes for some reason).
I already kinda have an idea on how to spin it… :smiling_imp:

Hey! 2 minutes and under

I’m also curious about this. If there’s no time limit I could make the judges suffer through a whole hour!

Welp, I spent a good 2.5 hours, and came up with this thing.

Also, I saw videos get extra credit? Here ya go.

Extra details:
Time Spent: 2 hours and 27 minutes
BPM: 140
Plugins used: All stock FL Studio plugins, nothing special.
Sample Packs: Default FL Studio one shots, as well as some one shots from Cymatics granted for commerical use.
Genre: I’m not sure, kinda a hybrid of EDM, Disco, and perhaps a bit of House?
Time: 2:12, sorry for going over a bit. 2 minutes is quite tight…
Key: F Aeolian is the proper term, but its relative major is C# Major.

Anyways, I’m hoping for the best! I might make another one later.

Nice music to listen at 4am in the morning with my first cofee before my morning meditation!

(We can’t see the video as it is “Private”, you should put “Unlisted”)

:pray: :smile:

I’m not sure how the video quality actually is… I do music not videos, lol. It may or may not be recorded with Xbox gamebar (Press Windows + G).
