Burbank, CA (April 24, 2008)--Spectrasonics has begun a 10-week "Omnisphere Preview Remix Contest," in which registered virtual instrument users can create music using special loops that Spectrasonics has created from the Omnisphere Power Synth. Three winners will be chosen in July to receive a free copy of Omnisphere when it is released on September 15, 2008.
The contest soundset of 45 new loops were created using only Omnisphere and demonstrate a 'taste' of some of the sounds and rhythmic capabilities of the new virtual instrument. The contest soundset is a free download and is available in Stylus RMX, REX2 and WAV file formats. All Spectrasonics registered users can download the soundset, enter the contest and submit their tracks at the contest webpage.
Participants can enter as many tracks as they like, but can only win one prize in one of the three categories: Best Vocal Production, Best Instrumental Production and Most Creative Production. The tracks will be judged by the Spectrasonics Team and the three winners will be announced in July 2008.
"We are really looking forward to hearing what our users will create with the Omnisphere preview loops," says Eric Persing, founder and Creative Director of Spectrasonics. "The contest allows people to try out a little of the Omnisphere sonic experience in their own studio environment. We created an interesting set of loops using only Omnisphere that demonstrate some of the unique rhythmic capabilities that it offers. The loops are a lot of fun to use in Stylus RMX, but they can also be used as REX files or even as standard WAV audio files in a wide variety of music software."
