Gladiator3 is in beta and we still need great sounding demosongs for it! That's why we started a demotrack competition.

The prices are:

- 1st prize is a Tone2 complete bundle for $999
- 2nd prize is a Tone2 synthesizer of your choice of up to $189
- 3rd prize is a Tone2 effect of up to $79

---------------------------

Requirements

You need a valid Gladiator2 license. Gladiator3 works with the Gladiator2 keyfile (Gladiator2.t2k)

Please read the guidelines carefully:

1 ) Install Gladiator3 (download link below)
2 ) Create very short songs with your favourite sounds and lots of movement
3 ) External drums, effects or EQs are allowed. Do not use a compressor, limiter or clipping.
4 ) Each 'microsong' or 'jingle' should not be longer than 40 seconds and be submitted as a separate file. A jingle can use several instances of Gladiator3 at once.
5 ) We need the best possible quality, not quantity
6 ) Submit your tracks in wav format to markus[a t ]tone2[dot]net
7 ) Deadline for your submission is August the 30th!

Download link:

Further terms:
By submitting a demotrack to us you give us the permission to use it for advertizing. The licenses of the prices are NFR (not for resale).

We are looking forward to your submissions!
Markus & Troels

Can we use our own Gladiator sounds? Or do they have to be preexisting presets? Are there any genres you want showcased in particular?

@Bodiah22:
-You can of course also use your own sounds or modify the factory patches for your needs. The only rule is that you must use Gladiator3.

@stoltingmediagroup
Thanks a lot for the nice words! Sadly we're able too travel through time. But the idea sounds very exciting :D

@avemcree
You're doing fantastic videos and soundsets!
Gladiator was a very successful plugin. It's getting 10 years old. We're doing a big free update to say THANK YOU to our customers who have supported our work by purchasing our software

Any particular reason you don't allow compressor/limiter/clipping? Currently I have a limiter and subtle harmonic distortion on my master channel to make the song sound fuller. Should I disable them?

We've received tracks in the past which were nice, but we were not able to use them. The artists did use too much compression and the audio material was destroyed. It is impossible to remove the (dis)harmonic distortion which is added by the dynamic processors.
Furtermore we master the tracks after we mixed them.

What about sidechain compression to produce the iconic ducking required in a lot of modern genres? Can we use some of that?

If not I imagine I can automate the master gain knob on Gladiator for similar effect...

@Bodiah22:
Sidechaining is fine

@stoltingmediagroup :D
You can use a cat for scratching. But do not compress the cat
