(the following liner notes were written in 2010)

OSC (One Synth Challenge) is an interesting competition held by Fred "Tattiemannie" Wilkinson for the community of a forum - KVR - dedicated to electronic instruments and especially plug-ins, also known as "VST's" or virtual instruments and effects. The " challenge " the name refers to is that of creating a whole track using exclusively a free plug-in instrument for everything, from melody to drums. A handful of plug-in effects is allowed, providing that they are free and currently available. All this may sound easy, but it isn't. Still, the challenge is attracting a growing number of partecipants who are willing to put their programming and musical skills to the test. All members of the forum can vote, and there are prizes for the winners. However, winning is not the main goal, as the challenge is such a learning experience and a great way for any musician to hone his skills that the whole thing is a reward in itself. At the time of writing this, I've taken part in five OSC's, and this album collects the tracks I entered in the competitions. I only won once and yes, winning does feel good, but I had an equal amount of fun on each and every One Synth Challenge. So, a big thank you to Tattiemannie for being such a great host and all the hard work he puts into this, thanks to all the generous people who donate fantastic prizes for the winners (as I said, winning feels good and the prizes make it way better ;-) and, finally, thanks to all the other guys at KVR who make this such a pleasant and fun experience!
