Well I entered the comp.All algoritm and stock reason devices. Drums and vocals are samples but everything else is Algoritm and stock reason devices.

I did not see anywhere to add my ableton live project though. Perhaps they just ask for this if you are a winner so they probably don't need this from me :)
I would assume that the project files needed to be viewed before the decision or else how would they determine whether you were in accordance with the rules.

Not saying you've cheated, but without the file who would know ;)

Either way good luck
It's how it's typically done. Have you ever entered a competition here? Most of them in the past are conducted by just posting a streamable link into a forum thread and no project files submitted at the time of entry. The dev or us will verify finalists/winners :)

Hi this is my first ever competition so sorry didnt have any prior knowledge and mentioned it in case I missed a part of the application where I should have added the file. 👍

Hi there,

here's my entry for the Algoritm Song Competition.

What I used:

8 instances of Algoritm (mostly patches I made plus some presets i tweaked a bit)
1 Kong
1 BV512 Vocoder (modulating a Algoritm carrier)
Various players (Dual Arpeggio, Quad Note Generator, Drum Sequencer, PolyStep Sequencer)
1 RPG-8 Arpeggiator
1 Synchronous (for stutter effect)
M Class compressors, limiter and EQ on voice track/vocoder
SSL EQ and sidechain compression
M Class 4 band compression on Master Bus

Thank you for hosting the competition!

Good luck everyone, can't wait to hear your tracks :)

I decided to throw my hat into the ring, with this sort of vaporwave-ish, lofi hiphop-ish amalgamation.



14 instances of Algoritm, and three instances of Umpf Retro Beats for the drums. The riser is also Algoritm, as is that downlifter thing. Minimal effects, mostly Polar, the Master Bus Compressor, and Quartet, along with the stock reverbs and delays.

Looking forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with!

Unless you're paid for being a judge, I don't see any rule that expressly prohibits you from participating. After playing with some of your absolutely insane patches, I would be both humbled and curious to participate against you. Since Reason Studios will also be the judges there are no issues with decision integrity. Please take it up with the other mods. Please, please.
Reason 12 - last chance.

Its ok. Its the same for all mods. I agree with it and accapt it. But thanks for the kind words.

And no, i don't get paid for moderating or listening and judging the 1000 songs you guys will send in for this competition.

I wish you and all other lots of fun and good luck!

This is a track created for the Reasontalk contest.

I have only used Reason 11 Standalone, no external DAW.

All sound design is mine created from “Algoritm” device for Reason:
Kick, Clap, Snare, Hat, Pluck, Pad, Lead, Noise & Reese Bass. I have not used Samples, VST or external effects only MClass Compressor for sidechain, RV700 MkII convolution reverb & Synchronous Effect.



I hope you like it...

Here is my noodeling around with Algoritm in my short time. All sounds come from Algoritm, mainly factory patches which i just tweaked to my taste. Some rare additional stock effects were used.

Have fun and be inspired!

Really cool track it felt like Zombie Nation at the start, I'd like to see you guys in the comp too if you aren't judging.

Since Loque took the liberty of posting an Algoritm track even though he's not able to enter the Competition, I'll copy him and do the same.
This track is NOT an entry. I have used some effects not allowed in this Challenge. This is the track I talked about earlier in the thread that I was working on. All synth sounds come from Algoritm. And the "rhythmical sticks/percussion" sound also comes from Algoritm.

I still have a few hours weekend and can do a "Reason only" remix for you :lol:

But then you'd be forced to work with Reasons Maximizer for your limiter needs. And no one deserves to go through that kind of suffering. I would never do that to you. :lol:

The Maximzer from Reason isnt that bad. Just use it with care and maybe use 2 or 3 instances with different settings. Sure it hasnt much intelligent handling of bad low end and all that stuff, buts its ok for a build-in.
