Dear all,

It's competition time! Yesterday, Skrock Music released a new Rack Extension: Pulse PWM Synth - Starting today, they offer you the chance to grab this synth for free! The time frame is fairly short so that you still have the chance to take advantage of the intro price of €19 in case you don't end up in the top 3! :)

Would VST FX be allowed, or is that barred?
How was I supposed to know "don't touch" meant to not push the big...red...button?

VST FX is also allowed, since Reason supports that platform I see no reason to leave those out.

Noplan, this is really great. Did you build your patches from scratch or use some of the existing patches that come with the synth?

Man, this is awesome! It just BLEEDS 80s! I was basically channeling Kung Fury for my entire thing. No more time to mess with it though :( so here's my submission!

Nope, it's a combo of the VHS Audio Degredation Suite in Reaktor, and XLN's Retro-Color. And didn't use them subtly intentionally.

Amazing. Sounds like a legit track from that time, on an OLD tape mix that's been played to death because of how great the music is/was!

Are live instruments allowed? Like guitar? Or is that considered a non drum “sample”.
