Announcing Top 10 winners of KORG Gadget Remix Contest #1!(April 15, 2014 Update)

Thank you for your participation in "KORG Gadget Remix Contest # 1". The contest, which ran from February 28th to March 31st, had 284 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 - 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.
