Cat invasion after using Symptohm:Melohman!

We we’re watching the new Symptohm:Melohman tutorial made the Réamonn brothers from Switzerland, with it’s theory about cats and its weird zombie fennecs sounds when…. SUDDENLY a white cat enters through the window! It comes, has a walk and looks in an evil way, then goes out, this time using the door.

And a “C’est du n’importe quoi, ça!” special suprise prize will go for:

“The Fennec Affair (Symptohm Tutorial)” video, and we think we even don’t need to explain why we decided to create/give this special surprise prize. Just watch their video and you’ll agree these sick guys also deserve an ALL-ALL Bundle, indeed.

And last, but not least, we’ll give a free Ohm Force plug-in (of choice) for the first ohmfriend that leaves a comment for this post telling what the hell means the name of the special prize! But keep in mind that in order to participate in this flash promo/quiz/idiotgame you MUST live in a country wich doesn’t have frech as the (or one of) official country language(s).

Important: comments at video’s pages were counted at 15h of 08/14/2008, french time (GMT+1), so all posterior comments from now won’t count for Cohmpetition purposes.

Music students of the world: we love you even more!

We agree that being a student could be a tough task. We all here have been students (excepting Mauve Force, who has been lost by his parents in Madagascar jungle in the early 80’s, then adopted by some wolves) and we know that – despite the joys of working hard, going to student parties and diving deep on beer and girls (or boys, if you’re one of the 7 girl ohm users in the world) – the music student life is mostly a period when every coin in the pocket is tenderly saved to guarantee student’s highest priorities: eat for survive and buy music/audio stuff.

That’s why Ohm Force has always been one of the few companies in the world to effectively support students, with a 50% off reduction not only for individual plug-ins but also for all bundles. And we intend to support you even more, making the process even simpler: from now on, you’re just supposed to send us a scanned copy of your student id card and we’ll give you a personalized discount coupon which will work for the whole student year, with 50% of not only for individual plug-ins, but also for any bundle or cohmpletion! It means that you won’t need anymore to contact us for each purchase begging for yet another coupon, and that you’ll be able to keep your coupon alive during your whole student life: just send us a copy of your new card next year. Music teachers don’t need to think we’re unfair: of course this new feature will also work for their 30% discount!

Cohmpetition new dates and deadlines!

We’ve been really surprised with the great overall quality of the video tutorials you made. But it seems the most of you have fast read our blog or our last newsletter and immediately started to write, film and edit (maybe not exactly in that same order), because only a very few have carefully stated in what category the submission was supposed to be. Nevermind, bunch of lazy, we’ve just dictatorially decided in wich category each video would be. So now we have 6 cohmpetitors in the Plug-in Overview category and another six in the “Tricks & Threats” one. No complains or category changes will be accepted! And since two ALL-ALL Bundles will go for the most commented video of each category, and since almost a half of them have been submitted during the last 10 days – postponers of the world, unite! – we decided to postpone the judgment day to August 15th, in order to give the last submitters the time to promote their videos and try to get some comments – and to give the first time entries the time to get even more! So the two videos with the more comments in its YouTube pages at the end of the August 14th journey will get the bundles. And the whole final result will be announced in August 15th…

Cat calamity in Switzerland! (or…”The Fennec Affair”)

“The Fennec Affair (Symptohm Tutorial)”, by Dominic Réamon from somewhere!

There are some people who like to play with danger. Dominic is one of them, since he almost lost the train: his submission has arrived yesterday at 10pm (french time) and of course we’ve just seen his mail today, already in August. But it seems all his postponing will be forgiven, since he delivered one of the most worthwhile, crazy and disgusting “things” of this cohmpetition. Anyone asked to see a hairy naked guy on sleeping shorts? Not us!!! Oh god, we’re still trying to erase these creepy scenes from our brains. (…) Ah, we were almost forgetting to tell: this amazing piece of video also teaches how to make crazy (what else?) sounds with the Symptohm:Melohman!… 🙂 And if you live in Switzerland, you can even hire this crew to spice up your party
