Toontrack Want to Give You $10,000… Assuming You Can Write A Song that Moves Them

You know how in Bill and Ted they wrote a song good enough to bring the planets into perfect alignment, allowing communication with lifeforms across the galaxy? I bet you could do that. And if you can, then you’re a shoe-in to win $10,000 from Toontrack.


The company is running a contest to praise the greatest songwriter in the world, or at least the best one to enter the contest. The grand prize winner gets $10,000 and a copy of EZ Drummer 2, including all the expansion packs, that way you can give all of your winnings to charity and still have sweet drum programming software. The runner up gets $2,000 and the software, and the third-place contestant just gets the software.

If you think you have the chops to win you can enter here.
