Taking our courses to the next level, here on Sonic you can now watch the track being made, download both the project and stems and then submit your own remix with the chance to win some great and exclusive prizes.
The How To Make Synthwave Remix Contest is exclusive, here on Sonic Academy and you could be in with a chance of winning some cool prizes and ultimately getting the first release on the brand new Sonic Academy Record Label!
We know we have one of the best music-making communities anywhere, and the level of production skillz coming through the forums is truly amazing.
So, ourselves and Bluffmunkey are super excited to see what you guys can come up with - we know you can smash it. You can now download the stems from this awesome tune and start working your magic!
We have shown you how to make the tune, now it’s over to you to get creative, make an awesome remix of this track and show the world your production talent.
Go get started! We can’t wait to hear your submissions.
So what’s a contest without a prize eh? Well if your remix of his track is chosen by us, you can win a release on Sonic Academy Records!*
But that’s not all, you will also win a massive £500 + ANA 2 + KICK 2 + Synthwave Sample Pack!
We will also have two amazing runner up prizes.
If you’ve created the second-best remix, you’ll win a £100 Sonic Sounds Store Voucher + ANA 2 + KICK 2 + Synthwave Sample Pack
The third-place wins a £50 Sonic Sounds Store Voucher + Synthwave Sample Pack
The course uses ANA 2 but does not include any plug-in. If you already own ANA 2, then please make sure to use the latest ANA 2 version on MacOS. If you have a license with us for ANA 2, it’s available in your My Account / MY Downloads / Plugins area.
If you have access to ANA 2 via Slate Digital, then you can download their own installer from their website.
All of that said, you do not need to use Ableton Live and ANA 2 to make your Remix and submit your audio track for the competition : the project audio stems are available for download, watch the course and use your own DAW and plug-ins to create your very own Remix of this track.
Should you really want to be able to use the project file, Ableton offers a 90 days free trial for Live I believe, but once again, the important bit here, is to watch and learn how the track was made, not trying to replicate, and then come up with your very own take
Does point 5 of the rules mean we cannot use other samples from our sample library? “Cannot sample any other artist or any pre-existing works; tracks containing any samples or pre-existing works will not be considered.”
As the contest title says, it’s a Remix Competition, so Sonic Academy and Bluffmunkey are expecting entries matching this requirement and not original tracks : Bluffmunkey Synthwave track Remixes Only please !
