By ";ram";, would you mean more of an ";ensemble"; feel as opposed to segmented types that you would find in a cadence?  And also possible different time signatures, that groups couldnt march to?  Just trying to get a bead on ";ram";. 

Thanks
Can individuals submit more than one entry?

These decisions will be up to each composer. Multiple time signatures are fine if you decide to use them. We are specifically requesting that this piece be something other than a streetbeat/cadence, but that doesn't necessarily mean it needs to be difficult to march to. You're free to have creative liberty within the confines of the contest criteria.

Yes. Individuals may submit more than one entry if they wish. We will update the contest rules to clarify this.
Strictly hypothetical, but...

Let's say that there's a guy or gal out there with some unique ideas who happens to be broke, stranded on a desert island or living in a monestary. Let's say this guy/gal, due to his/her circumstances, isn't privy to the services of VDL, but thinks it's one darn exceptional little piece of software, and wants to participate. Could the staff at Tapspace be persuaded to enter his/her composition in to VDL if it were given the once-over and raised sufficient interest? Can they interpret smoke signals?

I ask only because I just happen to [b][i]be[/i][/b] stranded on a desert island and sending this mail by way of my interpreter; a one-armed rodeo cowboy from Laos, named Clyde.

This contest is for registered users of Virtual Drumline or Virtual Drumline 2. Rules and eligibility requirements can be found [url=https://www.tapspace.com/vdl2/lotcontest.html]here.[/url]

Jim,

Out of curiosity, how many entries have been submitted (or can you release that info)?
Jim-

How will the results be posted? On the web or through email?

Feberary it is.  Reselts are imminent.
[color=Blue]Its a good thing it wasn't a spelling contest. lol
But as percussionists, we arent required to spell things correctly all the time. Are we?
But, I too am anxiously awaiting the results.
Best of luck to all of the entries.
Can't wait to hear the winning jam.[/color]
Anonymous = weak.
[color=Blue]Drumcat-

Did you enter a jam for the contest?
[/color]

Nope.  I'm sure the anxiety is palpable, but doing an anonymous signup as ";unhappy camper"; was a bit shady.
