First of all, I want to thank all of you that have participated in this contest. It was the very first contest that we've conducted here and it was a success and gave some ideas of how we can do future contests.
Thank you to those that took the time to mix the song and enter your mix. Many of you did a fantastic job, which made judging rather challenging and fun. Great work by all!
It is my hope that you all learned from the process and learned from each other in this contest. It is a big reason why we want to host these contests. If you learned anything that you plan to use as you work on future mixes, then we consider it a huge success and we'd love to hear about it!
Also, thank you to everyone for your patience as we've worked through the judging process. Since it was the very first contest on new software, we took the opportunity to work through the best process and also worked with everyone's schedule etc. We've come up with some ways that should make future contests much smoother. I'm thankful to everyone that helped with judging and also to the entire community for participating in the "bashing" and advice that was offered. You all rock!
Finally, thank you to @ColdRoomStudio and Why Wait (the band) for providing a great song for us to use. And thank you to @bozmillar for the great plugins that we could award to the winners. You both made this contest possible!
I expect to see some reviews on here from the winners!!!
