Round 89 Rules (Translations: 日本語)
Welcome to SDCompo Round 88!!
Internal Tracker synthesis is NOT ALLOWED this round
This round does NOT accept drawn samples.
This round DOES accept vocal samples!
This round DOES accept personally recorded performances, as long as they meet the guidelines below.*
PlugIns (VSTi, VST, DSSI, AU, LADSPA) are NOT allowed this round except for the VSTi and VST effects mentioned below.
This round uses "Reaktor Factory Selection", which is a free sound library with 3 instruments to be used with the free Reaktor Player.
Reaktor 5 player and Factory Selection must be downloaded separately from this link:
Reaktor 5 player and Factory Selection
(Just enter your email address, and native instruments will email the download links to you)
Factory Selection includes the following instruments:
carbon2 - a full-blown subtractive synthesizer offering a unique and distinctive sound.
Newscool - a REAKTOR classic. The sound engine consists of a tone generator and a multi-effects unit.
Space Drone - generates atmospheric pads which range from light rain or howling wind noises to deep and uncanny space sounds.
vst effects allowed are:
tal reverb III - A stereo plate reverb, since most trackers don't have one and it's great for electronic music
TDR Feedback Compressor II - A nice and transparent real feedback compressor
(Downloads for the vst effects are provided at their sites, since there are separate versions for Win32/Win64/Mac)
You can of course still use your tracker's native effects as well as the above vst-effects. We are still coming to a consensus about a standard set of 3rd party effects plugins which would be allowed every round.
Rules for Round 89:
1. Tracking Format / Maximum compressed file size is 10,000,000 bytes.
Modplug/IT/FT2 (.IT, .XM, .S3M, .MOD)

Others (.???) If you are not sure if your tracker is supported, just drop us a line on the forums or one liners. It never hurts to ask!

Maximum compressed filesize for entries is 10,000,000 bytes.
2. MP3 or OGG rendered link required.
