We are very happy with the development of V5 and would like to celebrate with the community the upcoming release of our new flagship device.
After some thinking, we found the perfect way: to invite you, brave @zynthianers, to generate a collection of curated snapshots tthat serve for demo purposes and hopefully the soundtrack for a new intro video.
Of course, such an effort must have a reward to match, so why not offering one of our V5 prototypes?
So here we go!!
1.) You can send your snapshots to this thread until 2023-06-01. You must include:
- the snapshot
- demo audio track
- mid file, if it’s been sequenced externally
- optional screen captures (mixer, zynpad, etc.)
- If the snapshot uses specific user presets or soundfonts, they must be included too.
Snapshots must be original and unpublished.
Not more than 3 snapshots from the same author.
2.) A troika of recognized @zynthianers will make a pre-selection of 10. The list with the 10 preselected snapshots will be published before 2023-06-04. Although musical quality is first , other aspects are important too, like complexity level and usability (i.e. using good names for the pads, etc.).
3.) The winner will be chosen by the community among the ten finalist using the discourse’s voting system. Each member can vote once. Voting time will end on 2023-06-21 23:59:59 (UTC). The author of the snapshot having more votes will win a V5 prototype fully finished & functional. In case of tie, i have the golden vote. The second and third positions will have a 50% off for buying a V5 kit.
4.) All the collected snapshots could be included as demo snapshots in next zynthianOS releases. Also, we could use them for generating soundtracks for zynthian-related video contents. Apart from these right concessions, the author is the owner of their work.
The contest conditions have changed and the date has been extended. Please read the addendum here:
And that’s all!
Enjoy … and shall the muses inspire your chains!
