Awesome!
As someone who has really disliked the use-only-stock-effects rule in some competitions, these rules sound great to me.
I might give it a spin and see what happens. :puf_smile:

No restrictions, so yes, you can use the Rack plugin version in Ableton. However, you must bounce separate tracks so there will be no problems when it comes down to validating the entries, as we can load them in Reason. An Ableton file would give problems. Not all judges own Ableton Live.

Hi That is great thank you. I could bounce individually no problem. :thumbs_up:

That's beautiful, really like the element of suspense throughout.

Here is my entry.

Bass, Arps, chords, drone and virtually all sounds etc from Roads. Samples used for drums and vocals and a couple of little synth noises.

Thanks.
Initially I was going for more of a rhythmic/bluesy/jazzy feel, but once the reverb came on I scrapped my old idea completely and went with this instead.
Probably my least subtle use of reverb ever. :D

Nice. I like that you managed to get a varitey of different tones with this one sound.

Thanks :thumbs_up: . I wanted to use Roads as much as possible so had lots of fun putting it throughdifferent fx (multipass, verbs, delays, synchronous),resampling and eqing the sounds i wanted. Really surprising how versatile it is with just the bass, hammer and warmth controls.

I just wish i could have separated the hammer noise and tried to make percussive sounds from it :-)

Great tracks TritoneAddiction and Popey!

My entry is very jazzy.
I used Roads for the chords and the two lead sounds.

Thanks for the competition!

That's really cool, parts of it reminded me of a late 70's early 80's American tv theme tune but for the life of me cannot remember what it was called.

Here is my entry.

I took up the suggestion to compose a jazzy piece. One in the forum has wished for that. The electric piano plays a classical role, as we know it from jazz/rock music or fusion. There is an intro, a theme and then two short wild electric piano solos that support the jazzy character. The electric piano sound characterizes the whole piece.

Hello there,

Here's my entry for the competiton. I teamed up with my brother this time, just like in the old days, for a swing with a japanese style harmonic progression and soloes which are all provided by Roads Electric Piano. Reason Drum Kits for the drums, Friktion for the upright bass and Orchestral Companion (vst) for the brass section.

Have a nice day!

Actually you can. Here are two combinator patches. One for in Reason 10 and 11. One for in Reason 12.

Reason 10 or 11: Click on the Hammer Only button to hear just the Hammer sound.
Reason 12: Click on the little green button next to Hammer to hear just the Hammer sound.

A very nice danceable piece that comes with a modern freshness. The 4 to the floor beat mixed with the electric piano sound combines well with the samples and encourages you to dance. Very well done!
