Fire up your DAW and let the riffs fly!
We're always delighted to come across your musical creations on the web, particularly the ones that have been cropping up on YouTube. So, we thought we might make it a little interesting for everyone with this promotional contest!
The Contest? Create a YouTube video that uses our loops and explains how you use our grooves to help you do what you love: create music. You can record yourself recording the song, playing your best solo over our drum tracks, or even create a more ambitious MTV-Style video of your song. For those of you that teach, you could present a video lesson explaining some aspect of your instrument or songwriting. Or, if your music has been used in a commercial, then that could work as well! It's truly wide open and only limited by your imagination and creativity.
Here are a number of great examples of what can be done:

Music is part of us all, so we want to see and hear anything that speaks to what you are about, whether you're a death metal guy, a bluesman, or a pop specialist. All styles welcome - the only requirement is that you use our drum loops in your video and make note of Beta Monkey and our website (www.betamonkeymusic.com) in the video summary.
Entries will be judged on originality and quality and everyone has a chance to win. We're looking for anything and everything - the winners will just have that certain "something" that stands above all other entries.
1 Grand Prize: Ten (10) Beta Monkey discs of your choice.
3 Runner-Up Prizes: Three (3) Beta Monkey discs of your choice.
