Hi,

Wait, Who said 2014????

Well, it's 2015 and we have ONE winner!!!!!!

Actually, in this case the wait is totally worth it as what he has done is pretty awesome.
(mp3 demos coming soon...)

The winner is the great Malc from the Czech Republic. In his own words:

I've been synthesising for many years, starting back in the 80s on Jupiter 6's (yes I had two - stereo!), then stopping to have a life, and then happily stopping that life to get back to making sounds again a few years ago. Ok not stopping, but trying to fit it in. I came across a way to make the Fairlight Sara voice, without resorting to an external sample, but using additive synthesis in the PC3 and now 4 years later I have a website where each sound was a lot of blood sweat and tears. The site and sounds are still under construction.

The Radio Ga Ga sounds were also a lot of work and are actually the hardest thing I've done. Its one thing getting a good sounding generic bass and strings, but quite another to match the bass, voices and other sounds on that record. I tried hard to match the record without using external effects, and my effort is still not quite there. I will still be tweaking it and will no doubt upload another version in a years time!


Check his awesome sounds at http://enjoythesirens.com

Please congratulate Malc by having a visit at his website. Thanks!


And we have an honorific second place as well! igloo1976 or mr. Martyn Galea from New Zealand. He did also a great job. I'll add his file in a second post. But big thanks Martyn for your work as well.


Both of them will receive a unique ksetlist thumb drive, that, even a year later, it's still not totally outdated :D


Thanks to both. People like them is what makes this totally worth it.

Holey Moley - I've not visited Malc's site before either but that's impressive!

Would love to be able to download/dissect some of the other programs on there (Fade to Gray particularly!)

Cheers,
Steve
