I'm fairly sure I've mentioned this already, but with less than two weeks to go now I thought I should give you another shout that it's on and worth taking a look at especially if you're a LaunchPad user.
Here's what Novation have to say about their competition:
We’re excited to announce our very own remix competition using a brand new pack that we've had created especially.
We want you to put your own spin on it, upload and submit for a chance to win some amazing AIAIAI headphones, Novation Bass Station II, as well as promotion of your remix across our channels.
The remix pack is free to download - bursting with authentic drums, astral synth patterns and plenty of bass. There are no rules on genre - flip it however you like. We’ll be judging on performance, originality and style. If you have Launchpad for iPad, you can bring in your own sounds and loops using the Audio Import feature too.
Watch the trailer below where we hear from Kit Records (NTS Radio), Sam Bristow (VideoGameMusic) and heavyweight deep house producer Chris Simmonds about the art of building a remix.
The competition is now open, and will be running until 30th November.

- About Launchpad for iOS

Launchpad lets you easily make and remix electronic music on your iPad or iPhone, then record and share your performances online.
Launch up to eight loops at a time using a special 8x6 version of the famous Launchpad grid. Experiment with ready-to-perform sessions from a variety of genres, download the hottest new Soundpacks to expand your collection, or make custom sessions with your own sounds on iPad.
Built-in time stretching and synchronisation keep your loops locked in time, whilst you use volume sliders and filters to control your mix on iPad, and dynamic filter, gater, stutter and delay FX on iPhone. Making and remixing music has never been so much fun.
