Cohmpetition 2010

Let’s start 2010 by having some fun with our favorite sport ever: music production? We’ll all have some fun indeed, but you can get even more: in addition of our own Ohm Force bundles, thanks to our generous friends from Muse Research & DevelopmentCamel Audio, Novation, Future PublishingSample Magic and KVR Audio – the world’s biggest audio plug-in news resource and forum – this remix cohmpetition will maybe be the one with the coolest prize set you’ve  seen out there. The track to be remixed is Stride, the new release from talented american progressive house producer/DJ Derek Howell (check out his MySpace profile or take a look at his discography at Discogs).

What you have to do is pretty simple: listen to the track (below), download the sample pack, use Ohm Force’s Frohmage filter and/or Symptohm:Melohman Performer Edition synth (both are free!) when producing your remix and… show your talent to the world! (please read the additional rules before starting your remix).  The submissions should be sent until February 28th 2010, the 3 winners will be chosen by the Ohm Force and Derek himself and the final result will be announced at the beginning of March. These are the  tasty goods you’ll be competing for:

    Great prizes, great track and free remix stems, well done Ohm Force and other sponsors.

      [QUOTE]Self-promotion is allowed: you can contact your family, your

      neighbors, your co-workers and so on, to come take a listen to your

      track and then vote to you.[/QUOTE]

      If this is basically a popularity contest, then why are we being asked

      to make any music at all? It seems a bit unfair to leave the judging in

      the hands of anyone but the original author of the track and the

      sponsors. Perhaps I missed something in the translation! I hope I did. Otherwise, this co’h’mpetition’ is the child of that fiasco known to beast and man alike as the Eurovision ‘Song’ contest! Tell me it ain’t so!!!!! 🙂

        The award is called “Public’s Choice”, and that’s exactly what it is, the choice of the public. Keep in mind that it was meant as an additional award, an upgrade to original cohmpetition’s terms: prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd places, winners chosen by Derek Howell & Ohm Force. It’s not that complicated 😉

    2 questions,

    What are the conditions around ownership of the submissions?
    Are uncleared samples permitted?

    Looks like a great comp though, should be a fun track to remix.

    • 7 Green Force
      January 22, 2010 at 09:20

      Hi CBall, you can actually use/do whatever you want when making your remix, as we’ll just embed a SoundCloud player here: you’ll be always the full owner and responsible for what you’ve uploaded. If you use a 30 seconds Beatles sample, that’s on your door that Robocop will knock. (does Robocop actually *knock* a door?) Anyway, you better respect Soundcloud’s terms of use and I could also tell you that you’ll have more chances to win if – in addition of being inspired by the sample pack and the original track itself – you open up the piano roll and do your own tricks.

      • 8 CBall
        January 22, 2010 at 11:47

        Thanks, just checking.

        Own tricks of course! Sometimes creative sampling can be fun however…

    Friendly greetings! Frohmage AU (Mac OS X) crashes my Ableton Live 8.1.1 instantly. Let me know if you need more data.

    hello mr. greenforce!

    le plugin soundcloud (pour écouter la piste originale) ne marche pas chez moi (mac os x 10.6.2 ac safari, firefox, etc.). peut on l’écouter ailleurs?


    • 15 Green Force
      January 25, 2010 at 09:40

      Même sachant votre configuration ce n’est pas possible pour nous de savoir pourquoi le player Soundcloud ne marche pas sur votre ordi, vous devriez contacter le support technique de Soundcloud. / Even knowing your specs it’s hard for us to know why Soundcloud’s embedded player doesn’t work for you. You should contact their technical support.

    Just wondering, can i use the DAW’s FX’s? (Such as EQ, Compressor, Reverb etc)

  12. January 26, 2010 at 01:10

    i am very interested in this compo because 1) i love compos but usually dont officially enter my track or am way past the cutoff date. but with a prize of all plugins from one of my fave vst companies (been using ohmboyz and others for >10 yrs) as well as other awesome prizes (<3 camel audio as well) i am motivated to actually enter a track into this one =] does it have to be house? i have been on a dubstep trip for the last year or two and it would at least fit the bpm =] does there have to be anything recognizable from the track or can i mangle the hell out of the samples? i would like to put at least 1-2 recognizable samples in it just to be tasteful =] thanks for putting this compo on!!

      Hi Amplex and all you guys, thank you for the kind words about the cohmp! But be sure to click on the rules link and read them, all you need to know is already there…

  13. 29 hp
    January 26, 2010 at 15:12

    the rules sound awful lot like my mother…
    So technically i am allowed to do 128.125 BPM in 7/9 and jump back to 130 BPM 4/4 automated by multiplications of pi stuff?
    DJ´s will love this!

    no serious!
    This is a very nice competition with top and highly useable prizes!
    Will try to do my best and stop questioning the rules for once 😉

    January 26, 2010 at 23:04

    Weird. I can play all the submissions but not the original piece. What gives?

  15. January 27, 2010 at 10:09

    The installers of the two free VST mentioned crash before installing anything on my Windows Seven 32bit 😦

    I’ll try w/ Win XP or Vista compatibility mode…

    Hello Shunio and Rez, we don’t have conditions to provide technical support on the blog, please contact us on contact at describing your problem and what is your setup and we’ll find together a solution.

  17. January 27, 2010 at 15:41

    Some of the tracks are downloadable and some aren’t. Didn’t found any statement for download restriction in the rules. Basically, this means we can share our track elsewhere …(without dancing naked on youtube :))) So, what does Mr.Green Force got to say ’bout that?

    P.S. Good luck to all entering this lovely cohmpetition! 🙂

      The audio track of your remix is yours and you can do whatever you want with it. Within the boundaries of the law, of course (ie. don’t use it to kill).

      As stated in the “Rules” “…When the track is done, create a free account at Soundcloud, upload it there and send us the link for it. You should send the link to ………”

  26. January 29, 2010 at 15:36

    Yayzerama, your watermelon representative is here on hand to answer questions about rabbit sexual harassment. Barring that, an uplifting DnB remux — the “Torley BFF” edition because we all know those bunnies love to “Stride”! Glad to see y’all excited.

  27. January 30, 2010 at 10:19

    greetzs out there!
    Frohmage (win xp, sp2, vst) crashes my nuendo as soon as i change the presets. since i installed it i experiencend several blue screens. graphics go crazy- i never saw my nuendo without colours before…
    i like ohmforce but that sucks…
    and as i remember i was experiencing probs with fromage before( years ago). i always tried but i always gave up because it was causing probs- not only on one specific comp.

    for my remix i have to pretend to use fromage…?!

      Self-promotion is allowed: you can contact your family, your neighbors, your co-workers and so on, to come take a listen to your track and then vote to you. If it happens that some (or a lot) of these people just go to the vote page without even listening – they’re lazy but they love you – a difference between votes and plays will be noticeable. Anyway, just in case, we’re using the maximum protection level of the WordPress/Polldaddy poll widget we’re using: it’s blocking repeated votes by cookie and by IP at the same time.

    • February 4, 2010 at 16:01

      Maybe because he advertised himself through IM-ing status linking to his track… (i.e. Vote for “my track”…
      … I’m assuming that he did that but don’t really know. I think the idea of advertising yourself is fair… anyway your IM buddies might vote for another, track … :))

  36. February 4, 2010 at 17:39

    Thanks for the cohmfirmation! 🙂 I feel much better now! Please ‘tidy up’ my last post. Looks like all of the edits to my one post arrived at the same time! Internet connection in this Library is not so good!

    I have a question. Forgive me if I missed the details somewhere. A friend of mine has made a small banner for me. It is in PNG format. When I finish my Remix, should I send this, along with the link to my Soundcloud page to you? Or, should I upload the image to Soundcloud? Is PNG Format OK for you?

    Thanks for your help (and understanding – if it was/is needed)! 🙂

      Hi Dan

      Upload your remix to your SoundCloud profile, and remember to (at the “Privacy Settings”) put it on “public” mode.

      Then send us an e-mail with the URL for the track, and you can also attach (in this e-mail) the image you’re talking about.
