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.

This is simply awesome. The groove is irresistible. The only flaw is that is too short! I want more! This track could perfectly fill into my fusion playlist, thank you for writing this little gem!

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!

Yeah i can hear the T.Square and Cassiopeia vibes in this! Nice stuff!

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!

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 Bossa 👍

The competition is closed!

Great work has been submitted. Impressive. Very high quality. And also diverse: from House to Jazz and Fusion.

Listening to the entries makes me emotional. All that hard work and then I hear this. Wow.

Anyway, a jury of eight members is now being formed to judge the seven entries.
Five members have been closely involved in the development of the Roads Electric Piano and there are three moderators who strengthen the jury team. It's very busy, but the plan is to come up with the final rating in a week.

Many thanks to the creators for the submissions. You enrich the world with beautiful music.

The list of entries orde by date:
TritoneAddictio - Purity:
Popey - Unkown Roads:
Rare Shadow - I Got Your Roads:
Bossa - Onko Mark:
Quarmat - It's the Beginning:
Wowhow - Roads reasontalk:
JensHaglof - Traveller:

I agree. It is better not to mention a deadline for judging. Please take the time it takes to come to a good judgment.

The patches are awesone. Thank you for sharing. This is so generous.

FYI, 'ARP - Heavenly' is compatible with Reason 10.2 or higher. The other patches will work in Reason 11 and 12, but they need Rotor Rotary Speaker 1.0.

The Roads Electric Piano competition is over, the judges have listened and awarded the entries points.

The winners and prizes won:
• 1st place: >>bossa<<. Wins free license for 5 Rack Extensions made by Oenkenstein Audio (Rumble K1 Granular Synthesizer, Rumble K2 Player Digital Wavetable Synthesizer, Rumble K2 Builder Digital Synthesizer, Rumble Klank Singing Bowls Generator and Roads MK1 Electric Piano).
• 2nd place: Quarmat wins a free license for the Roads Electric Piano Rack Extension and three other Oenkenstein Audio Rack Extensions of your choice.
• 3rd place: TritoneAddiction. Free license for the Roads Electric Piano Rack Extension.

Dear winners, congratulations.

For the other entries that did not win the prizes, I can perhaps offer some comfort by informing you that more Oenkenstein Audio competitions will be held soon.

I would like to thank all the contestants for their wonderful work and also the members of the moderators team at Reasontalk, who were part of the jury.

I will PM the winners to ask for their Reasonstudios username and distribute the free licenses according to the prizes they have won.
To Quarmat the question whether a Private Message can be sent to me, stating the preference for which three Rack Extensions can be given a free license.

Thumbs up and keep up the good work and make fine music!

A hearty congratulatory thank you is in order for all the contestants. That was a very difficult contest to judge, and it was VERY close. Those were some beautiful submission. I know Ed is pleased.

Thank you all for participating!

Congratulation Bossa, Quarmat and Tritone Addiction. Gotta say the entries were all quality and credit to the judges as I could not make my mind up on what I liked best or would even rank in which order.

Thank you for the competition. My brother and I are honoured to have met the favours of the jury. All of the entries were awesome, but bossa's is really special. Well deserved first place, imho.
I encourage him to extend the song because it is a shame it's so short!

Thank to Oenkenstein audio for hosting the competition, to the jury and to Challism for their work and to all the participants for their awesome tunes.

Have a nice day!

Your piece was too creamy and moody!
The Piano stands out great and it has some nice distortion/saturation effects going all is perfect.
Really top song. Congrats. :clap:
