Round 77 Rules (Translations: 日本語)
Welcome to Round 77 of the Soundevotion Competition!
Round 77 intro / parameters
This round does NOT accept vocal samples
This round does NOT accept personally recorded performances
Round 77 is all about internal tracker synthesis. Use the power of your chosen tracker to generate sounds natively. No vsti's allowed!
There is also a samplepack of drums which came from Musicradar (Thanks Airmann for the suggestion!)
(Note: Please go to the samplepack page for the download, as it is only a small portion of the massive pack from the Musicradar site.
To give you some examples for internal synthesis:
Renoise could use any of the following:
Or the Renoise draw tool
Sunvox has its own set of powerful internal synthesis.
Buzz/Psycle have many options
If you think it is unfair/unbalanced that Buzz/Psycle have so many machines, then go use them!
Or alternately, sampling from one tracker's internals and importing into another IS allowed.
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 77:
1. Tracking Format / Maximum compressed file size is 5,000,000 bytes.
Modplug/IT/FT2 (.IT, .XM, .S3M, .MOD)
Buzz (.BMW, .BMX)
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!
Formats besides .XRNS must be compressed using .RAR, .ZIP, .GZ, or .BZ compression.
Maximum compressed filesize for entries is 5,000,000 bytes.
Entries have no song length limit.
2. Include MP3 or OGG rendered link.
All entrants are required to include a link to a rendered MP3 or OGG of your entry when you submit. Please render
and encode your MP3/OGG raw. Any mastering/EQing and or post processing is not allowed with the exception of Maximizing, Limiting, Volume Fade Out (eg: looped track), and Normalization.
3. Limited tracker features only.
Modules are limited to ONLY the built in effects of your chosen tracker.
Buzz/Psycle/Modplug/MadTracker entries must include all plugins required by the track inside the entry archive (zip, rar, etc).
All required files to playback the module must be included in the entry archive.
The filesize limit per entry includes any required files for playback.
4. Entry must be original.
Your entry must be original and not a remix of any previous works.
5. Please use internal synthesis and the samplepack ONLY. No external samples/synths that do not follow these guidelines.
6. Delete all Unused Instruments and patterns before submitting.
This helps reduce your entry's filesize and save bandwidth.
7. Identify yourself inside your submitted module file.
The Author and Song title must be included within the module.
8. Entry limits for individual and coop entries.
Individual entries are limited to 1 per person per round.
Cooperative entries are limited to 1 entry per team.
Cooperative entries are allowed in addition to your individual entry.
Voting for a coop from an individual entry is prohibited if you particpated in the coop.
Voting for an individual entry from a coop is prohibited if the individual participated in the coop.
Multiple individual entries are prohibited and will result in suspension of your entry and possibly account.
9. Voting is required.
You must vote for your top 5 favorite entries to qualify for final placement.
Please do not disregard the rules. We do not want to disqualify any entries.
