Elektronauts Tribute Album: Silver Souls
“The original Machinedrum was introduced in 2001.
The Monomachine in 2003…. Crispy, weird and gritty – Machinedrum beats and Monomachine soundscapes are instantly recognizable.
They have soul…. But all good things must come to an end.”
To celebrate that these silver boxes live on within our veins and they are legendary classics, we, Elektronauts, decided to put a tribute album together.
Who can contribute?
Anyone who has an Elektron Monomachine and/or Machinedrum (UW) and is registered to this Elektronauts community. Age, experience, music taste, doesn’t matter.
If you want to contribute the criteria of submission are simple:
Use only one or a combination of the silver Elektron boxes, so ONLY Monomachine and/or Machinedrum (UW). Feel free to sample the Monomachine in your Machinedrum UW. No other sound source!
Use only the on board effects of the MnM and MD. No external effects are allowed.
You can mix or multitrack your song in any DAW. You are allowed to use little EQ and some compressing (outboard or ITB), DON’T OVERDUE! I think it will be nice to hear what the silver boxes are capable off and how different they sound within different hands and imagination. You make this happen, so think about that.
The track can not be longer then 6 minutes…
The file must be in .wav or .aiff format no more then 100mb
You send two (2) files to this dropboxfolder:
1: The track with your artist name and track title.
2: A text document with additional information. Artist name, track title, your forumname and your real name. If you want to share additional information like “I only used monomachine or this track is dedicated to…” etc. put it in this tekstdocument.
Submitting not later than 1 december 2016. No extensions on this date. All tracks will be mastered after that.
Collaboration is allowed and might be fun (if you have a MD non UW its recommended)
Submit just one song. If you do a collab, you can’t enter a solo song anymore (sorry, there are many of you who wants to contribute)
The release of the compilation will be shortly after 1 december 2016 on Bandcamp and will be free for everyone. All donations will go to charity.
Its you and your silver box that make it happen, think about that when you start composing!
I want to thank Elektron for these great already legendary classics, marcelvidela for this great idea, knobgoblin and Huno for helping me with mastering and artwork and to all Elektronauts for this awesome community and source of information.
If you have any questions. Feel free to shoot them in this new thread. Or send me a massage…
My aim is to put every entry on the compilation album, so please stay within these criteria. Other than that, I’m excited, hope you are to!
