Definitely agree. If too many rules are implemented, it'll just scare people away from the competitions as entering might seem such a hassle. I think that stating the recognisable samples used in a track is a very important demand in some cases, however I don't know if it can be as easy for us to control as is preferable.

Yeah that's for sure.
It's not easy to control the more/less sampled song and It's impossible to recognize all the samples but in the end who does?
Even the big sample companies can't do that...the only thing they do is to develop the watermark technology just to bring pressure to the "naughty" ones.

It's a thing based on personal taste and a judgement call for each of us.
If we start putting rules like this one then we should put other rules too in order to be fair like limiting the use of standard presets ect..caz practically it's the same thing.

Yeah, confused by the sample rule. Coulda swore I read no samples were allowed in this recent comp. Might have confused it with the last comps rules and ended up not entering a track in this one because I used some sample vox stuff. I'm a silly goose. I will upload my "entry."
