IDMf047: Open Genre Compilation [Submissions CLOSED]
NOW ANNOUNCING - IDMf047 OPEN GENRE COMPILATION
Yes friends, your eyes are correct in their gaze. The IDMforums Netlabel is quite pleased to announce our next open genre compilation album!
We've just had an excellent unofficial release at Christmas and the Netlabel minds have agreed that open genre comps tend to bring out the best and most submissions, since people don't feel limited and just cut loose with their finest craft! So we're going to go for a strong year here and try to really give the community a lot of opportunity to participate and contribute to some sick-ass albums.
Any not privately shared or those that have been public before and have a load of plays and/or downloads will automatically disqualify you from the compilation selection process.
If you don't have a soundcloud account, other streaming services are fine as long as they offer equal ease and functionality to soundcloud - namely the ability to preview the track, the ability to share privately, and the ability to download the track in full lossless quality.
- All tracks must be submitted in WAV or AIFF format, with a minimum quality of 44100/24bit sample rate
- Minimum -6db Headroom with NOTHING on the master bus. Nothing. Not one effect. We'll be having the tracks mastered. This is a hard rule with no exceptions.
- Label your tracks filename with your full artist name, track title and forum name too. AGAIN MAKE SURE TO DO THIS OR YOUR SUB MAY WELL GET LOST AND FORGOTTEN. Lord knows I have my share of files called "hrhhrhhrhrhr dicks test render4" but have some professionalism with your final master for submission please. If we can't keep track of who subbed what, good tracks might get left off. SADFACE
- Include a contact email address in the info part of the track along with a clear indication that it is for the compilation.
We receive a lot of submissions for these compilations, so be aware that any not meeting the above basic requirements will not be entered for consideration at all.
It is 100% YOUR responsibility to make sure you do this.
THE DEETS ON THE DATES
Now go forth, yon cretins of cacophonous uproar and sonic upheaval, and send us some bangin choos breh
