Re: SOUNDSCAPE CHALLENGE 001

Question # 1 Does the sample need to run the entire track?
Question # 2 It is allowed to shorten the sample. Can I use multiple shortened parts as different tracks as long as I do not do add anything but add effects?

1) No..the sample doesn't have to run for the entire length of the track.

2) Yes..you can shorten the sample..and to answer the second part of your question, I just changed my mind..do whatever you like with the sample..but the end result MUST BE a QUALITY soundscape.

The over-all goal is to focus on getting as high a quality sounding track as you can..think movie score..epic..big..pro-sounding..polished.

Just updated the rules to show you can now do whatever you like with the supplied sample..as long as your goal is a high-quality soundscape.

Re: SOUNDSCAPE CHALLENGE 001

Thanks, guys..great to see you getting in on this, the first of..hopefully..many.

To everyone: I just edited everything, due to the two Soundscape Challenge threads being merged. Nothing has changed, but it's now better this way, as everything is now in the one thread..and all future challenges will be found here, too..with a link to the current one always found in the first post of this thread. Clicking that link will open an individual post about the current post..but remember to post all questions, comment and submissions to this main thread and not the individual post that opens when you click the link above..hope that all makes sense.

If anyone doesn't follow all of that, then just post here and I'll try to explain it more clearly.

Yep..this is the ONLY thread..I'll edit each new challenge post, so the link in the first post will always take you to the current challenge in this thread. So, basically, when one ends, the next will be tagged on the end in this thread and we just keep posting under it..like we're doing with this one. Make sense?

Got it. I just didn't know there was another thread originally devoted to the same cause, but this format makes it much less confusing / perfect for bookmarking.

Yeah..I originally had this dumb idea of putting all the challenge in one thread and the details and rules in a "main" thread, but somebody up on high had more sense and merged the two threads..much better with everything contained in the one place. :victory:
