Solid State Logic announces a partnership with TuneCore.com (a delivery and distribution service and portfolio company of Guitar Center) and online events site Eventful to send up to five bandmembers on a one-week, all-expense-paid trip to England to record at Peter Gabriel’s Real World Studios. Real World has hosted sessions for artists such as The Cure, Bonnie Raitt, Super Furry Animals, Beth Orton, Goldfrapp, Deep Purple, Robbie Williams, Paul Oakenfold and Sigur Ros.
The number of individual “Demands” received at Eventful.com will determine the winner. This grand prize includes studio time, airfare, ground transportation, food, lodging, an engineer and assistant, and unlimited access and complete lockout of Real World’s “Big Room” for five days. (Approximate value: $25,000.)
“The Big Room” is renowned for its 72-channel SSL XL9000 K Series analog console, its large selection of vintage gear, and its varied array of outboard equipment in a room that is famous for its view of the flowing mill pond. Real World’s team brings a wealth of experience, passion and commitment to help musicians realize the full potential of the studio.
To enter, bands will register as a Performer on Eventful (www.eventful.com/tunecore) and opt-in to participate in the competition. Then they need only encourage their fans to “Demand” at Eventful that they win. The unsigned band with the most Eventful “Demands” at the end of the day, October 31, 2007 (Eastern Standard Time) wins the grand prize.
Bands with the second and third highest Eventful “Demands” each win a Solid State Logic Duende DSP processing engine. The Top 10 bands with the highest “Demands” each receive one album, with an unlimited number of songs (not to exceed 74 minutes), placed for free into all digital stores they choose to which TuneCore delivers, including the first year’s maintenance and storage.
