Cohmpetition Winners Announcement

Cohmpetition's prizes!

It was REALLY hard to choose. When you have a contest where more than a half of the submissions are fairly well produced and nicely inspired, it becomes about listening to the tracks several and several times, to find the little details that push or pull each one up or down at the ranking. So don’t be depressed if you’re not at the top10, it doesn’t mean at all that your track is bad, but it will show you, instead, that musical production/composition won’t always be  “painting from scratch with total creative freedom during the whole process”. We have given you some guidelines and directions to be followed, and it’s commonly known that very often some ‘limitations’ help us to stimulate/boost creativity. Winners have followed the guidelines, but with inspired and creative solutions to create good music within the boundaries. So we have ranked the submissions based in, in order of importance: “followed the guidelines + fits well in the novel”, “originality + creativity”, “overal production quality” and “how many positive comments in the blog”. Each ohmforcian has his own creepy musical tastes, so the aspect “music style” was completely ignored. We like music, good music.

1- Kylo

2- Stephan Roemer

3- Steve T

4- Veit Winkler

5- Paul Raisbeck

6- Alexandre Borcic

7- Apeskinny

8- Hunger Ghost

9- Stuart Fox

10- Boblefrançaismoyen

It was really great to have 35 (!!!) submissions, and we’d want to celebrate it in a generous way, so we have decided to expand the prizes up to the top5. It means that Veit and Paul will get a free  Minmonsta:Melohman, and since Veit wasn’t able to control his addiction and bought the monsta even before the final result announcement, we’ll offer him an Oddity instead. We couldn’t know if it would please you, but if you guys want us to publish the list up to the top20, just drop a comment and if we see that there’s quorum, we post it. Congratulations to all participants, and thanks for helping save the world! Music could be a powerful weapon, indeed.

    I’m flabberghasted! After hearing the entries I’m both surprised and delighted to be 3rd.

    Wow! And I didn’t even need to post a picture of one of my cats (though I think I will now!)

    Many thx O Ohmnipotents of Audio Manipulation

    OH! MY! GOD! (the phrase not the plugin)

    I totally love you guys:-)

    4th place is just too great and far beyond my expectations. I’m really glad you liked my track and put it to such a nice rating.
    And of course a major thanks for the extended prize scheme and the offer to give me an Oddity.

    That one might be a good substitute when my Minimonsta addiction gets too hard states.
    But if the Oddity is even just a quarter as cool as the Mini, I might become a polysynthicomane…

    Maybe I will even go all the way some day and produce “When the Minimonsta met the Oddity and they smoked my computer together”:-)

    Ah, this Post just made my day and before I will continue work, I will now make my “How the Minimonsta saved the world”-compilation with my favourite tracks from this cOHMpetition:-)

    smiling and cheering:

    AWESOME job everyone – and congrats to the winners!!!!!!!!

    Thanks to the Ohm Guys for a great competition… I’d never really played so extensively with a synth like the monsta so it was a nice change!

    I can’t believe it
    This cohmpetition really brought out some great work and well done to everyone who entered. I would like to thank The guys at Ohm Force and the Guys at G Force for making this all possible, my Family, Friends and all my loyal supporters and those of you who left positive remarks, and last all of I would like to thank all competitors for making this such an invigorating and respectively challenging cohmpotition.
    Best Wishes Kylo 🙂

    I still suggest the following proposition :

    Do you think the overall quality would eventually deserves to be published as a compilation ?

    After I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new feedback are added- checkbox and now every
    time a remark is added I get 4 emails with the identical comment.
    Is there any means you may remove me from that service? Thanks!

    The things i have seen in terms of laptop memory is there are requirements such as SDRAM, DDR etc, that must fit the
    requirements of the motherboard. If the pc’s motherboard is very
    current and there are no os issues, modernizing the memory literally usually takes under sixty
    minutes. It’s one of the easiest laptop or computer upgrade processes one can think about.
    Thanks for spreading your ideas.
