Make a Beat with Splice's Jay Dee Sample Pack and You Could Win an MPC

Last month, Reverb partnered with Splice to run four weekly contests through the online production community's Firestarter series. Users could download sample packs curated by Reverb, make their own songs with the sounds, and enter to win a synthesizer.

Today, we're happy to announce that Reverb is again partnering with Splice by sponsoring their Firestarters: The Fantastic Sounds of Jay Dee aka J Dilla sample pack—and giving away an Akai MPC2000XL workstation to the producer that makes the best beat.

From now until November 25, you can join Splice, download the Jay Dee sample pack, and submit your beat to the contest. The winner will be announced December 6.

"Deeply embedded in the roots of jazz, soul, R&B, Jay Dee looked to the past for inspiration and thus created a path for the future," Splice writes. "Pay homage to his years of crate digging and dig through this collection of his original sounds."

More than 100 one-shots and loops are available. Head over to Splice to learn more about the contest and start crafting your submission today.
