Has anyone else received the Reason Studios email regarding the LoopCloud Global Producer Challenge? If so, what are your thoughts?

The email indicated to "Download your free participants [sic] pack" and when I went to find this "pack" all I seem to see is a bunch of links to loop subscription services I don't particularly want to sign up with.

There were 2 plugins (Puncher2 and Ravage Lite) that I was able to download after having to go through a few minutes of the rigamarole of navigating PluginBoutique. Plugins seem to be okay.

As for everything else... is anyone interested in participating in this challenge?

Here's the link if you haven't already seen it.

I got several messages about this. Sounds like a cool way for producers to get a lot of prizes. I'm not going to join it though. Only people making commercial music stand a chance, plus they probably need lots of votes and likes and all that kind of bullshit, and that's not how I roll.

I received emails, too. Initially was going to give it a go for fun because why not? Quickly lost interest once I hit the same point you outlined. Why is it such a process just to get the sample packs? I thought I maybe clicked a wrong link and tried again later on but the same nonsense of having to sign up for subscription services or download random plugins I'll never use.

is this the one where they limit entrants to a handful of electronic genres? otherwise it seemed interesting, but I do a wide mix of stuff, so electronic heavy/only doesn’t work for me.

and yeah, if they’re relying on vote harvesting, I may as well not bother. that ain’t for me. 😅

I can't even download the pack at all. I already have a loopcloud subscription so it won't let me take that route. I tried downloading that free plugin from Plugin Boutique, didn't help, i don't see how it could either. Doesn't matter what i do, i'm just sent around in a loop with no download in sight.

Took me a while to get a handle on it, but these days it's pretty effortless, and very useful to me.

The loopcloud services costs money, or at least it asks for your card and tries to charge you. At that point I chose to abort :D

Unfortunately it looks like it's nothing more than a scam to collect email addresses.

If you have accounts or have trialled the services in the past you are denied any access :thumbs_down:

Complete waste of time why would they email the current users then deny access to us?
VST 2.4 MIDI It's definitely on the list of todos
What MIDI tools are you itching to use

To be fair, when I looked it over I didn't see anything that said you must use any of the sample packs or plugins. So you could simply make a track from whatever you already have, and all these things they offer are optional bonus content.

That said, I'm in the position where even the more accessible stuff I do doesn't slot neatly into any of their categories, so I'd be swimming uphill from there...

It's entirely plausible that you can enter the competition without using any of the promotional content by simply adding the required tag, but that's really not my point.

Assuming you follow the click bait then provide your email to gain access to content which isn't listed until you provide your email and give consent to be added to more marketing before being rejected as you've previously used the services is pretty pi** poor especially as your still going to receive the marketing emails.

If you're looking to sell me something with a trial or free download then reset your trial system and then everyone's a winner or should we all rush out grab a free email address and use that instead to return the dishonest approach to the marketing campaigns.

The competition is open to all so make sure the offers are too or don't email existing users ;)
