How about a regular BBCSO Discover / LABS challenge?
When I came here, I was looking for people, who would do tracks done only with LABS just for the fun of it. Then I discovered Discover and that made me wonder even more, why there wasn't a nice, dedicated thread for those here.
I soon started thinking about KVR's monthly "One Synth Challenge", where participants are asked to create a whole piece of music, using only one given (mostly free) VST synth. It carries itself to some degree by forcing all participants to rank all entries at the end via a dedicated voting website, if they wished to get qualified for the final charts then. The top 5 of each month then can choose some price, if they wanted to.
A version of that here could be similar, but possibly only bi-monthly and instead of a free vst as limitation, a theme of sorts might be given, which could be anything from movie styles such as action, romance, mystery, horror, etc... to more abstract themes like a season, rage, love, friendship, the ocean, space, sewer blues, whatever and maybe even every now and then a little clip to score. Maybe the winner of the last round can set a theme for the round after the next?
Anyway, I think, this could be a marvelous exercise for everyone, fantastic teaching/learning environment and most amazing advertising for Spitfire Audio, especially if they were putting up a little price like any $29 "Original" or the like?! I imagine, this could draw quite a crowd, whilst being of manageable effort, since it would need just some moderation, announcements, the voting/ranking website. Half a month to evaluate the voting results and preparing the final presentation should allow for it to be rather a relaxed task.
So, yes, there is the question: How about a regular (monthly or bi-monthly) little challenge around SA's freebies? 🤓
