from https://fmchallenge.osamc.de/rules/
9. You MAY NOT use any samples or recordings (not even for e.g. drums or vocals), but you MAY freeze or bounce tracks to an audio file to save CPU processing power.

Yeah, no vocals allowed (unless you synthesize them with FM).

The reason is that this competition is about showing your skills with synth sound programming and production. Usually a vocal track has a big impact on the listening experience and not everybody has the voice/talent to lay down a good vocal performance (or access to someone possessing it).

Thanks for clarification, especially #10.
I sometimes use closed source plugins.

So... with the update to rule 10, we won't be able to use multiband compressors? What about Exciters, multiband distortion...

:cry:

Where did you see that. I can't find that on the site? ;)

Joking aside, this is fixed now. Thanks for reporting!

I thought about making a track, tried DEXED, but the presets are not saved. After restarting the DAW it sounds different. Hmmm...

Works for me in Carla. Did you use the LV2 or VST version?

I think it was the VST in Ardour. I didn't try with Carla.
