Interesting to read... and a bit confusing to be honest.

Now I'm wondering if all those that submitted tracks through SoundCloud on the SWC actually had a paid account to offer direct downloads. I definitely know that this is also a mandatory rule for other games (again: KVR Audio comes to mind). :hmmm:


Thank you for the information, Henrik. This will make things definitely more simple for the Songwriting Competition. If the participants want to sign up to a SoundCloud account that is. Nothing will change for the Mix Challenge though - also considering that MP3s are not a necessity anymore (as of MC061).

I edited my previous post to include a link for more information from Soundcloud (this link).

I love the Jazz Big Band, let's see what mixes come up.
For some different referencing, I think the following is quite a good recording, as a high school:

There is massive natural reverb, but great dynamics, no compression artifacts, warm sounding bass, good brightness in the chorus parts etc..
(Comment section is another reason to post it. Listeners are happy :) )

The first good mix came in already, but I still hear a compressor. :uhuhuh:
