Is it just me or are there some Files Missing when Downloading the Remix Packs? I was just looking through the James Dymond Project Files Download and there seems to be only 1 Project File “12. Structure part 2” is this correct ?

SA team will confirm but it seems to me that’s the Final Project. The name is a bit confusing tho :wink:

Okay yeah thanks for clearing it up for me , the name got me really confused there :smiley:

Hey, I would like to know if I am allowed to use royalty-free samples or presets from sample packs etc. in my remix, because the following rule does not make it clear to me : “Cannot sample any other artist or any pre-existing works; tracks containing any samples or pre-existing works will not be considered.”

Question: For our remix to be accepted, must we use the vocals in it’s entire (all the lyrics) or can we leave some words out?

Hey all,

So are we supposed to remix James Dymond’s Song or anything we like including others? As we are allowed to download all of them.

Just curious

You can use samples from packs but not anything from already ready released music. However we want we to be creative !

You can download all three and use anything from each

Use as much or as little as you like :+1:

Thanks Chris!

Thank you Chris! :slight_smile:

Remix Competitions are exclusive to subscribers yes.

Sorry for the inconvenience. Your email address is confirmed and your account seems to be correctly setup here, so not sure why you’re receiving this error. I’ve seen your support ticket and we’ll get back to you via support :wink:

I’m a subscriber and the Select File to Upload button does not work.

@sample82 You mean to upload your Remix ?

The Select File is not a button, you should see a Choose File or Browse… button above this.

Working without issue using Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox here :wink:

@Stef Sonic, so how can I submit?
After I have uploaded my mp3 file and typed a title, what should I do?
I don’t have a way to send the file.

@sample82 Sorry for delayed reply over the weekend :confused:

1 - Click on the “Choose File” / “Browse” button and a Finder/Explorer window will open.

2 - Select the audio file you’d like to upload ( it can be MP3 or WAV file format ) and click Open.

3 - Name your file : e.g → My Trance Takeoever Remix

4 - Once you’ve completed those steps, the upload button should activate.

Confirm and wait for the upload :wink:

Hope this helps !
