Announcing Top 10 winners of
KORG Gadget Remix Contest #2!

(October 2, 2015 Update)

Thank you for your participation in "KORG Gadget Remix Contest # 2”. The contest, which ran from August 7th to August 31st, had over 200 entrants, all of which displayed extreme skill and talent.

Our KORG contest committee, composed of the KORG Gadget development team, carefully reviewed each of the entries and now has the distinct honor to announce following award-winning works:

No.1 Gold - Tomonao Niiya / Shape Down (Niiyan Remix)


 

Prizes:
KORG TRITON taktile-49 / KORG electribe / 1 years SoundCloud Pro Unlimited Membership

Comments from Korg Gadget Development team
This mix preserves the simple atmosphere of the original track while cleverly incorporating electro sounds and piano. It is loaded with clever intonation throughout, developing to let you listen to not only the piano, but each gadget as well. It is a well thought out track, and the judges all take their hats off. They agree that even if you have it on repeat play, you would still want to keep listening to it because it is so nice. Congratulations!

No.2 Silver - Diabeats / Gadget World Tour (Diabeats Remix)


 

Prizes:
KORG microKEY-61 / KORG volca sample / 1 years SoundCloud Pro Unlimited Membership

Comments from Korg Gadget Development team
Keeping only the important phrases from the original, the remix has a more fast paced, almost sprinting feeling. A nice synth lead is featured throughout, and each gadget is used to the best of its ability leaving no part of the track with wasted potential. The judges were blown away. Congratulations!

No.3 Bronze - SeYSMIC / « Gadget World Tour » by SeYSMIC [KORG Remix Contest]


 

Prizes:
KORG KAOSS DJ / 1 years SoundCloud Pro Unlimited Membership

Comments from Korg Gadget Development team
It starts with a synth lead, playing Kingston's 8 bit arpeggios alongside the original track's phrases for a cool electro sound. The automations are used effectively, and starting in the middle of the track a powerful drum kick comes in, which got everyone excited in the judging process. Congratulations!

Our KORG contest committee, composed of the KORG Gadget development team, carefully reviewed each of the entries and now has the distinct honor to announce following award-winning works:

No.1 Gold - Moor hertz / The Body & Soul - Moor Hertz

 

Prizes:
KORG taktile-25 / KORG volca keys / KORG volca bass / KORG volca beats / 2 years SoundCloud Unlimited Membership

 

Comments from Korg Gadget Development team
At first, the remix is nothing like original song, but then as we listen, there are many points where we can hear phrases or sounds of original song without breaking the flow of the remix.
What a great electro sound! We really liked how pad and bass sounds were used, as well as the use of effects and filter.
Congratulations!

No.2 Silver - RonoTron / Our Cities (RonoTron Uplifting Remix)

 

Prizes:
KORG microKEY-25 / KORG MS-20 mini / 1 year SoundCloud Unlimited Membership

 

Comments from Korg Gadget Development team
This remix starts with a choir pad sound, evoking a sense of nostalgia.
The arrangement as presented in the remix makes the song a bit simpler than the original.
We enjoyed listening to it very much, because in the first half, the remix starts very smoothly and as it gets to the last half, the tone changes abit and gets to the hook point.

No.3 Bronze - soltec / Shape Down - Celebrate your shape Remix by SOLTEC - {FINAL VERSION}

 

Prizes:
KORG nanoKEY2-WH / KORG volca keys / 1 year SoundCloud Unlimited Membership

 

Comments from Korg Development Membership
This remix is big beat style, which is powerful and cool. It is totally different from the original song. From the beginning, the remix shows just how well the remixer used the effects, really showing off their impressive depth of knowledge about Gadget.
The remix has a certain atmosphere, flow and great sense of arrangement.
