Pro Member Challenge 1 - Nothing But Kick

Welcome to the Pro Member Weekly Challenge! Each week, a new challenge will be posted aimed at helping you think outside the square, learn new techniques and prevent you from falling into the dreaded creative rut. This weeks challenge is open to the public, and completing it will get you a free pro membership! The challenge is to create an entire tune using nothing but 1 MIDI track with a kick drum. More info here Being involved in the challenges are completely optional, you can miss as many weeks as you like, but I highly encourage you to have a go, even if it's something you feel you would absolutely suck at! There are 4 types of challenges and every 4 weeks we will cycle through them. They are as follows : Bizarre - designed to make you think outside the square and try something you've never done before. The purpose? to get you thinking about your tools in ways you never have, discovering new tricks to add to your usual production toolkit. Practical - designed to both help you build your own archive of original content, and (optionally) add to the Pro Members pool of patches, presets, samples, racks and processes. Shoe Swapping - designed to put you in the mind-set of someone else for a while, problem solving a task that you probably wouldn't be used to. Discovery - designed to increase your knowledge of all areas of audio and music production, from theory to mathematics, history to philosophy - this one lets you take a bit of time off creating to get your learn on. Each challenge you complete will get you a reward (in the form of an 8 bit animal) that will be displayed on your public profile in your achievements area. Over time, these achievements will be used for various perks and give you access to special content. There is also a private forum with a topic for each challenge, for people to swap ideas and discuss what's going on. Each week (if possible) I will launch the challenge along with a video on how I approached it, and any files that go with it. Completed challenges can be emailed to [email protected] before the 12pm GMT each tuesday, any attachments over 20 megs please use a file upload service and send a link I hope you enjoy being involved with this as much as I've enjoyed creating them, I've learnt so much myself by creating these and going through them myself, and I'm sure you will too.
