It’s the norm for competitions to pop up where the payoff isn’t worth the effort. But this one from M-Audio most definitely is. Listen up Trigger Finger Pro owners — if you make and perform music with yours, M-Audio and Toolroom Music are offering the chance to release your track and then fly you to the summery disco island of Ibiza to perform it.
SO really, this isn’t a stretch. You’ve probably got tracks ready to go anyway, and now you’re being presented with an opportunity to get some reward for your labours. And it goes a little something like this:
M-AUDIO AND TOOLROOM RECORDS TAKE YOUR MUSIC TO THE GLOBAL STAGE Leading music production equipment manufacturer and dance music label announce an international competition for Trigger Finger Pro users.
Cumberland, RI, USA—June 12, 2014. M-Audio (m-audio.com), a leading manufacturer of solutions for performing musicians, producers, and recording studios, announces a competition to win an artist contract with Toolroom Records—the world’s premiere dance music label.
The competition provides owners of M-Audio’s all-new Trigger Finger Pro with the opportunity to experience the lifestyle of a rising music superstar. To enter, Trigger Finger Pro users must create a track using the instrument and upload it to Toolroom Records’ demo submission app on Facebook. Toolroom Records will judge the entrants and select a winner on September 1st, 2014. The winner will be flown to Ibiza to perform their Trigger Finger Pro track at an industry party, with subsequent release through Toolroom Records’ distribution network.
Trigger Finger Pro, an intelligent music production and performance instrument, empowers musicians to create modern tracks at a blistering pace using its intuitive combination of percussion pads, faders, knobs and step-sequencer buttons. This combination of controls will command virtually any available music production software and ships with 8GB of premium virtual instruments, synths, and sample content—including remix-ready samples from five artists on the Toolroom Records roster.
“This competition is about giving new artists the opportunity to take their talents to the biggest stage in our industry,” said Mark Knight, Director of Toolroom Records. “Having seen the Trigger Finger Pro in action, I’m confident it will be a game-changing piece of technology for budding producers.”
