Novation have released a very nice little video celebrating their heritage and have launched a brand new competition to win a hardware synth by using a massive free sample pack that demonstrates their synth legacy. All you have to do is create your own track using it. Read on for for info and check out the vid below
Has your inspiration been stirred by our heritage celebration short film? The combination of the Novation sound and innovative design style makes our family of synths invaluable for your productions, and has done for acclaimed electronic and dance musicians including Orbital, M4SONIC, Rudimental, T.E.E.D, Lunice, Teddy Riley, Jimmy Mac (keyboardist for international sensation Lorde), and many more for over 20 years. We’re proud to present a massive free sample pack that shows off our legendary synth heritage, and all you have to do is create your own track using it for the chance to win one of our latest award winning hardware synthesisers.
Containing loops, one shots, and multi-sampled patches from SuperNova II, K-Station, Drum Station, Bass Station, UltraNova, and Bass Station II, the heritage sample pack contains everything you’ll need to make a track (if not a whole album..!).
Three lucky winners will be able to choose either a Bass Station II, UltraNova, or Mininova to add to their studio and experience the power of the real thing!
Entries will be judged by Novation and a panel of very special independent judges including Paul Hartnoll (Orbital), Liam Howe (Sneaker Pimps), Eats Everything, and Timo Maas. The three best tracks, making the best use of the available sounds, will win! Use of effects and sounds that aren’t included is allowed, but you must ensure none of your sounds violate copyright – and remember, your track will be judged on its use of our heritage synth soundpack!
Simply enter here by submitting your details and a YouTube or SoundCloud link to your track for your chance to win.
The closing date for the competition is Tuesday the 4th of March 2014 at 4PM GMT.
