Starting on October 5th, Omni Sound Project will partner with Focusrite Pro to present the popular Four Track Challenge. Focusrite Audio Engineering has pioneered professional audio recording technology spanning almost three decades. Focusrite Pro, the company's professional and commercial division, meets the demands of recording, post-production, live sound and broadcast professionals. It consists of RedNet, a fully modular audio-over-IP solution, and the Red range, Focusrite's flagship multi-format interfaces, along with the heritage ISA range of microphone preamplifiers and analogue signal processors. Its solutions are consistently chosen to meet the needs of high-pressure audio environments, having recently been utilized for the US Presidential Inauguration and the Super Bowl.
Participants in the challenge will receive prompts to help mix a song using the Brainworx Focusrite SC plugin. Challengers will add their own touches to a song we send along with the prompts, then share their creations at Hear and Tell.
We'll send the prompts on Tuesday, October 5th and Hear and Tell will be held online on Tuesday, October 12th at noon CST. All participants will receive a free trial of the Brainworx Focusrite SC to use in the challenge.
Plus, we will be giving away 15 copies of the Brainworx Focusrite SC plugin (valued at $349) and an ISA One preamp (valued at $599). To be entered to win, participants must attend Hear and Tell and post their mixes on Instagram.
