Seven souls dared to take on Trent Rentsch’s Orphan Audio contest this year, and once again, the judges will have their work cut out for them. You’ll find the actual audio “orphans” on track one. These are the elements that had to be used to some degree in the spot or promo, and if you chose to produce a spot, it had to be for a florist. If you chose to produce a promo, it had to be for a cash contest. The entries are on tracks 2 – 8. We’ll be sending a ballot to our Gold members later this week to get the votes for the winner who will get Ozone 7 from iZotope, a Gold RAP Membership and more! The winner will be announced shortly after that later this month.

The rest of this month’s Soundstage is on tracks 10-20, starting with a promo from Dave Foxx as mentioned in his column. More promos on tracks 11-13 and commercials are on tracks 14-17. We wrap it up with some sweet beatmix IDs on track 18 from Evan Surminski, a nice station launch piece on 19 from Alex Zaretsky, and Mike Irvin takes a different approach to addressing a community issue on track 20 about the recent Ottawa sinkhole.
