How to enter
- Use any of the four loop packs produced by Si Gordon in the gallery below.
2. Get creative! Write some music. Any style, any length. You can use your own sounds too, as long as content from Si’s loop packs are at the heart of your track.
3. Record your music. You can use any DAW you want – it doesn’t have to be BandLab. If you’re using another DAW you can access the loops using the BandLab Assistant (which lets you import BandLab loops into any DAW).
4. Once you have done the hard part and created your piece, you just need to email it to [email protected], along with the consent form below (to download the form, click the “File” menu, then “Download”).
