Neuro drink song competition entry.

Stumbled upon this Neuro drink song competition the other day. They need an original song for their :60 second spot “Candy Shop”. Well, it’s been a while since I have been thinking of scoring a video. The timing couldn’t be better. To be very honest, the video is not that great. After 15 second it looks like they’ve stitched some random clips together. It doesn’t represent the product well. Initially I had a hard time to come up with something cause the first 15 seconds are poles apart from the rest. After so many different tunes, I finally ended up with a Drum & Bass track for the spot. To me it fits nicely to the later part of the spot and in the beginning I used some pads, etc to build up the theme. Here is the final video:

Competition is gonna run till September 1st, the video with the most views on youtube will take $5K. Runner up will be selected by the judges.

Tools used: Sonar X1


KVR OSC-25 contest entry, February 2011.

OSC stands for One Synth Challenge. It’s a contest that’s held on KVR Audio forum each month. Basically, a free synth is selected by voting and all the participants create and submit their tracks using the synth. All the sounds must be created using the synth even the percussion sounds. Voting goes on for two weeks in the following month. Whosoever gets more votes gets the prize. It’s a very nice concept and an excellent motivation factor. It gives me an opportunity to learn synth programming and creating sounds from scratch.
Anyway, Superwave P8 was chosen for February 2011. It’s a very good synth capable of creating a wide variety of sounds. I submitted the following track for this contest. It’s a trance tune called “Sunshine”. Used around 12 instances of P8 and free effects like AriesVerb, EpicVerb, IQ4, Easy-Q, Son-EQ, Modern Spacer.

Please feel free to comment on the track.
