Novation announces M4SONIC video interview, free M4SONIC soundpack, and competition to win Launchpad S, Launch Control, and M4SONIC masterclass
Today Novation has announced another trio of treats – (what shall we call it? a threebie? maybe not?) – 1) an interview with Australian producer M4SONIC, 2) a free M4SONIC soundpack for Launchpad App users, and 3) a remix competition with prizes of a Novation Launchpad S, Launch Control, and M4SONIC master class.
Details after the break–
Interview: Controllerist M4SONIC talks with Novation (above) about his inspiration to “[use] technology incorrectly,” the creation of his 4x Launchpad rig (essentially, a 256-button monster controller), and the goal of piloting the entire concert performance — from the loops and audio to the lights, pyrotechnics, and confetti cannons — from the controller.
Free soundpack: Novation has also released an exclusive remix package of M4SONIC’s track Virus as a free download for Launchpad App users. It ties into a competition (but we’ll get to that in a moment). The pack includes the track’s entire drum kit, stabs and synth chords, progressions and loops and more.
Remix contest: In conjunction with the M4SONIC Virus soundpack giveaway, Novation has also launched a remix competition. Entrants are invited to create their own remix, using the free soundpack. Contestants’ personal remix performances will be judged by M4SONIC. Prizes include Novation’s Launchpad S, Launch Control, and the grand prize winner receiving a masterclass from M4SONIC himself. The video at the bottom of this post explains it all.
The remix competition runs for the next month: from today to March 14 2014. All the details you need to know, the full M4SONIC interview, and free soundpack download information are available at the Novation website.
