We’re pleased to announce that Figure from Propellerhead now includes built-in sharing to SoundCloud. Figure is a fun music-making app with drums, bass and lead synth in an easy to use touch interface for iOS devices.
Since being released earlier this year, mobile musicians have been using the Figure app to create little masterpieces while on the go. Now it’s time to show the world what you can do with Figure.
To celebrate, Propellerhead is inviting you to create your own beats using the Figure app. Share them to SoundCloud to have a chance to win prizes.
How does it work?
It’s easy. Use the Figure app to create and share your creation with the world by using built-in SoundCloud sharing (available in Figure version 1.4).
Each play your song gets equals one lottery ticket in the prize draw. The more plays you get, the bigger your chance to win.
Prizes up for grabs for the two winners include:
- Beats Pro headphones and Beatbox Portable speaker by Beats by Dr.Dre
- Propellerhead Software music production suite: Reason, ReCycle and Balance audio interface
- A one year SoundCloud Pro account
The winners will be drawn on March 15th, 2013. Find out the full details on how to take part on the Propellerhead website.
We’re challenging you to bust out your thinking caps and get experimental with…sound! So how would you capture the birth of an idea in the form of sound? Or the sound of falling in love? Or even better, the sound of a post-apocalyptic landscape?
We’ve teamed up with Vancouver Film School (VFS) to get the gears in your brain turning, your record buttons ready, and encourage all of you SoundClouders to capture a sound that’s never been heard before. We’re excited and so is VFS, check out a special recording from Shane Rees, VFS’s Head of Sound Design for Visual Media here:
The SoundClouders who are successful in capturing a sound that’s never been heard before will have a chance to win a full tuition scholarship to VFS’s Sound Design for Visual Media program. Cool deal, huh? Now, down to business:
Capture at least one of the below topics in the form of sound, in whichever way you like – and with as much creativity as you can:
• The colour red
• The birth of an idea
• An imaginary animal being born
• Falling in love
• A post-apocalyptic landscape
Enter on the contest page here for a chance to win a scholarship. When entering make sure to write (in the sound’s description) who you are, why sound is a passion for you, what equipment/software/techniques you used to create your submission and what makes you so sure this program is what you want to do. More details on the contest here.
Alright, sound good? Ready, set, go be the first to record a sound that’s never been heard!
