https://www.kvraudio.com/news/mercuriall-audio-and-paul-santo-announce-a-music-contest-47411 Der Contest hat bereits am 11.01. begonnen, die Deadline ist sportlich: am 26.01.2020, 11:59 PDT (Pacific Daytime). Wie damals beim Adam Contest geht es darum, zu einem Foto (in diesem Falle eine imposante Wolke, lmao) ein maximal 40 sekündiges Stück Musik zu schreiben, Stil egal, solange aber eine Gitarre dabei ist. Näheres s.o. bzw. weitere Verlinkungen. 1. Preis: 1 Stunde mit Paul Santo und alle Mercuriall Produkte für umme (die, die nicht bereits für umme sind) plus das neue, upcoming Plugin von Mercuriall. Viel Spass. @pitto ? @mazze ? Interesse? I am pleased to help Mercuriall Audio Software announce an innovative new contest that rewards winners with not only their AMAZING amplifier plug-ins but an hour of time with me. I was one of the first Mercuriall artists, with Steve Stevens (Billy Idol). They have a varied selection of emulators, which I use regularly (the Steven Tyler documentary, Nilsson record etc) and a Marshall plug-in, Spark, that rivals my vintage Marshalls.
