Announcing the Palm Sounds Birthday Song Competition

Everything starts with a song, or a track anyway. To celebrate Palm Sounds turning eight years old we’re having a special contest to run for the whole of May. The idea is that you create a track which will be the soundtrack or special sound for Palm Sounds, but there are some rules as you’d expect.

  1. Every entry to the contest must be made using mobile hardware and apps. No finishing off on a desktop or laptop!
  2. The more apps or mobile devices you use the better.

So, how do you enter the contest? Here’s what to do:

  1. Create your track or song, that’s easy right?
  2. Publish it to SoundCloud. If you don’t have a SoundCloud account, you can get a free one very easily.
  3. Make sure that you put all the apps / hardware you used in the description on SoundCloud, and add the tag “psat8” to your track. This way I can see all the entries and make sure I listen to them.
  4. Add your track to the Palm Sounds group on SoundCloud
  5. Let me know about your track via twitter, email, carrier pigeon, whatever.

So, what can you win? Good question. Here’s what’s up for grabs …

  1. The first prize is a Brand New GuitarJack 2 USB from Sonoma Wireworks. This is an awesome piece of hardware that I’ve been using since its first version and it is truly an awesome product from a great company.
  2. One of 8 Promo Codes for Propellerhead’s Excellent Thor for iPad

And there are more to be announced soon too …

The winner(s) will be announced on the 25th of May (as this is the date Palm Sounds will be 8). So get your tracks in as soon as you can.

I’m looking forward to hearing them.

A huge thank you to Reactable for providing the codes for today’s give away

A huge thank you to Reactable for providing the codes for today’s give away

Reactable are one of the most interesting companies in the mobile space at the moment. Starting originally with their Reactable hardware and then creating their mobile app as a software representation of this allowed them to bring it to a much wider audience. Then porting it from iOS to Android increased their audience even further.

Last week they expanded their iOS and Android apps even further with their object store within the app allowing users to do more with this interesting take on a modular music creation system.

So a huge thank you to Reactable for providing the codes today and I hope that everyone who received one really enjoys the app.

I’m looking forward to the new directions that Reactable are exploring and seeing where that goes next.

Don’t forget the latest update of the mobile app has some great new stuff in their object store.
