opening the project i get a message: project corrupted. Something about an unsupported Minor version at line 2 column 157

Got it, I need Abelton 11 to open the project.

Hi, are we able to use samples that come with Ableton Live, such as the 909 drum kit or with 3rd party VSTs that use drum samples? This is in reference to the competition rule below. Thanks.

" tracks containing any samples or pre-existing works will not be considered"

Welcome aboard on the forums ! :sunglasses:

Yes, as long as you have clearance for the samples you’re using, you can use them :+1:

So no worries at all with samples from your DAW library or sample packs you’ve got a license for.

HI, are the submissions final? Just curious how we can get feedback on a track if we can only submit once. Thanks.

The track you upload via the “Submit Your Mix” link on the Remix Contest Page is your submission & entry for the Remix Competition. You can upload only 1 track, but you can delete/replace your entry as long as the submission is opened. Once closed, your submission is final.

Tip : Do not wait the last minute to upload your remix ! Uploads can take some time !! :wink:

Feedback on work in progress is something different that will take place during the Live Show, there will be a different link to upload your track for this, stay tuned & check the House Takeover Event Page and the Week 2 updates :sunglasses:

Awesome! I uploaded via the link but didn’t get a confirmation email or anything. Is that expected? Thanks :pray:

Can’t check those uploads at my end but should be all good if the upload completed, don’t think you receive any confirmation :wink:

FYI… So I wasn’t able to upload my remix in firefox. In Edge it worked fine…

Glad to hear that I’m not the only one with this problem ;-). Chrome also worked fine for me.

Thanks for your feedback about this :wink:

  • Have you uploaded a MP3 file or a different audio file format ??

  • I will try to upload a test file using Firefox to see if I can reproduce the issue as well.

It was an mp3, the green bar filled for a bit and then stopped.

Dear Sonic Academy team,

Just a quick one to say a massive thank you for the recognition! It really took me by surprise especially with all the incredible remixes in the competition. Making that track for the Takeover House, I was inspired by the nostalgic vibes of '90s Italo “Dream” House, was a blast. Your positive feedback means a lot to me, so huge thanks again for that!

A big shoutout to FunkyAround for their brilliant remix, and heartfelt thanks to @PLASKmusic for their invaluable guidance.
