Roland JD-990/JD-800 competition

Recommended Posts

Create an original track utilizing only your JD synth!!!

 

(see thread http://acapella.harmony-central.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=1415270)

 

Rules:

 

1. Any music style is accepted

 

2. No expansion cards/boards allowed - internal ROM only

 

3. The prize is a virtual case of beer and a truck of burritos with HOT salsa (Don's idea :D)

 

Have fun!

Ill volunteer to host all the Mp3's if need be, Ive got plenty of space/bandwidth on my webserver.

 

Also - if we're going to use percussion in our track can we design the sound on the JD, then sample it and load it into a drum sampler like Battery? As long as no external effects/filtering is used?

Sure you can! Because technically, we do the same thing with overdub. We "sample it" and then "play it". But you will loose that charming oscilation that is present due to low DSP power. For example: JD will not kick same drum sound exactly the same way - specially if you applied envelopes to it.

 

 

Ok I will list names of people i know here that have a JD:

 

Sealed

Dxdreamer

Clusterchord

Mook

G-bus

Flat Earth

Paolo Di Nicolantonio

idiotboy

Don Solaris

gilbertopb

Awake77

aeon

EJ2

burster1

Karma1

 

i expect them to submit. ;)

Anyone else?

I'm pretty sure that they wouldn't let you do it even if you put tape over the logo and the letters :(.

 

Just start a Triton (Le) competition, see how many bite :).

Awake says he has a webserver, don't know if we can FTP to it though.

 

Otherwise, can we piggy onto whatever server the "monthly mission" folks use?

Indeed I do, Ill be happy to donate ~100Mb for the contest! I dont have anonymous FTP setup, but I can provide a FTP account just for the contest. Everyone just uses their FTP client of choice and the same username/password.

 

Let me know if you guys need it, and Ill set it up.

I will try to see if I can get the time to dedicate to my JD-990. So count me in on this one.

 

It will be a good reason to test out PTLE on my Intelmac and mbox till I decide what I want to do for a good solid new daw system (that I can afford).

You should have ask me and i would give you full resolution version. ;) Anyway, back to topic. Ok i made a directory (as did Gilberto, and he placed a nice image inside), however, i can't access it via http (ie to place a link to mp3). I tried http://jdcontest.awakeaudio.com/DonSolaris/ but it wont work. Where's the catch?

If you like, we can set up a nifty frontpage with bios and stuff for the entrants.

About the frontpage, is a good idea.
