We've just launched our completely revamped midichords website and we're celebrating with a special Midi2MP3 composition competition. Everyone can join! Everyone can win! Simply create a short composition based on this competition's midi, export it to mp3 format and upload the mp3 to midichords. Before you start, read the competition details below. If you have any questions or comments regarding this competition, simply use our regular contact form.
You can win a USD 99,- Image-Line.com gift certificate. The prize is transferrable, but there is no cash alternative. The gift certificate can be used towards the purchase of any of the current Image Line products from the Image Line webshop (ImageLine is the maker of FL Studio).
Import the midi file in your preferred sequencer(s) and compose an arrangement not shorter than 120 seconds (2 minutes) and not longer than 240 seconds (4 minutes).
You may use automation and effects and add groove, chords, melodies and other elements. You may also split the pattern. For example you could split the pattern into two separate patterns with high and low notes.
But it is important that the (melodic) essence of the downloaded midi pattern is recognizable.
If we can not recognize the pattern one way or another, your mp3 will not enter the competition
