Ableton Beat the Clock remix Competition

Remix and Win a Trip to Berlin With Ableton And Sound Cloud.


For the next two weeks Ableton & Soundcloud are running their “Beat the Clock” remix competition with loads of great prizes including a 4 night stay in Berlin.

About the “Beat The Clock” Competition

Ableton has teamed up with SoundCloud and collaborated with some of our favorite artists for this very special contest. A free Live Pack featuring sounds from atmospheric pop titan M83, indie electronic stars Junior Boys, and LA beatmaker Nosaj Thing is available to all Live users from May 14th through May 28th. Use these loops, stems and presets to create a new, original track.

One catch: you only have 24 hours to create and submit your work.

The countdown starts with your download. Get your creative juices flowing and show us what you can do in just one day.
