Day 322: Want to make pro samples and get them released?

Whilst sat meddling with Ableton and my favorite3 VSTs, sometimes I come up with some awesome 1 hit sounds, and I think about how cool it would be to get them on some sample packs, but that's impossible right? Wrong.

Zenhiser are holding a competition that will enable you to do just that. If you weren't sure how cool this definitely is, then remember that Zenhiser released the sample CDs that pretty much contained every important rave sample ever. No mean feat, and endlessly awesome.

Here is the spiel from Zenhiser themselves:

Create your own samples, add them to an audio track in wav format and submit the
track to this Soundcloud group Want To Be A Professional Sample Producer
it’s that simple.

Even if you don’t enter the competition we welcome
your comments on whose samples you think are great and thanks to
Soundcloud’s amazing interface, commenting couldn’t be any easier. For new
Soundcloud users you will need an account to both submit your samples and
comment on the entries. Registration and a personal account are 100% free.

And here are the boring rules:

Producers must submit a minimum of 10 samples contained within one audio track and submit their entry to this sample competition group.
Audio tracks must be in wav format.
Samples can be in any style you wish, one shots, music loops, drum beats or even sound fx .
Samples can be added to the audio track either in isolation, looped or as a
musical track showcasing the samples.
All genres are welcome from Tech House & Minimal through
Drum & Bass and Breaks. If you can produce it we want to hear it!
Producers may submit as many audio tracks as they wish.
All samples submitted must be the producers original work and must not violate any
common law or statutory right of any third party including, without limitation, contractual rights, copyrights and rights of privacy or publicity.
