Welcome back, everyone! The new year's had a few months to settle in, so it's time for another UG Acoustic Originals Album!

If you've submitted a track before, you know the drill. If you're new, check below for details.The general idea is that you guys write an original song with the only restriction being it must be acoustically arranged. We're pretty lenient on what is considered acoustic, as described below. Then you submit them here and we throw them together onto an album made by the UG community

Feel free to contact me with any questions. Also, please sticky this thread so you can get updates on how things are going.


The Details
- Submissions can't be covers. Original songs only. Instrumentals are ok.
- Feel free to submit old songs. You don't have to write something new for this.
- One submission per person. This rule is subject to change depending on how many people participate.
- Collabs are cool! If you want to collaborate on a submission with other UGers that's totally fine.
- IMPORTANT: To submit your song, post a link to download your track. Keep in mind that your songs should be in in one of the following file formats: .wav, .aif or .flac. This is so that once the album is finished we can release it on bandcamp. Also, when you post a link to your song, please include your artist name (this will be either your username, your real name, or some sort of other artist name that you want to be credited under) and the name of your song.

What counts as "acoustic"?
- The focus of the song needs to be on an acoustic instrument.
- Electric and acoustic basses are both acceptable.
- VST samples are allowed. Drum samples must be of acoustic drums/percussion.
- Orchestral/bowed instrument samples are allowed but cannot be used as the driving force on the track.
- Keyboards are also allowed to be used to emulate strings/piano.
- Keep to more natural-sounding effects when tracking or mixing (echo, reverb, compression, light chorus or phase, etc).

Deadline
June 3. I will annoy everyone with reminder messages so we don't have stragglers turning songs in on Thanksgiving

count me in. i've been doing so much electronic stuff lately with my band that it'd be a nice change of pace to work on an acoustic song

I may be in.
Depends if I get round to recording.
And then it depends on what kind of drums end up in the song...

What does everyone feel is a reasonable deadline for submissions? I was think the first or second week of May, as that's right around 2 months. We could consider say, June 2, if we wanted to give 3 months though

Two months left to get submissions in! Is this a way early reminder? Yup, but it's probably necessary, right?
