  1. Awesome contest!! I’m definitely going to put my years of audio profession into this one video!

    When is the deadline??

    • Hey Will, thanks for that question! I completely forgot to add it to the post – it’s one entry per person, so give it your best shot :)

  2. I was going to try this, but Ableton says the video it is corrupt or unlicensed. I even tried rebouncing it with Media Encoder and no luck.

    • Hi Ben, thanks for the heads up. And very strange, I’ve been able to download and open it without any problems. Have you tried re-downloading it from that link above, to see if that fixes it?

    • Yeah, no go unfortunately. I even updated quicktime player. I’m running Ableton Suite 9.6.1 on a very capeable Windows 7 system

  3. Just to be clear, the deadline Friday 10th means we can submit on the evening of Friday 10th?
    I’ve only just found out about this and would like to know how much time I have :)

  4. Hi there! Do you need another video showcasing the voices before they were processed? I’ve tried my hand on this, and the SFX came out sounding a little too appropriate for their uses, that some of them no longer sound human.

    • Hi William, thanks for writing. It’s not a requirement, but you’re welcome to share it, if you have it.

  5. Entry done… Good luck to everyone!! This is a killer idea for a contest by the way ! hehehe

    A big hug !!

  6. I was happy to submit my entry the other day— the quality of the animation made it very easy to be inspired and come up with something (albeit goofy in my case)! Much luck everyone!
