NeOST is a weekly song prompt that challenges you to make soundtracks for media that doesn't exist. Each prompt will present a familiar scenario or design problem from famous media. Participants will create soundtracks for these scenarios using samples that I have provided.

NeOST_4 - "Nightfall"


With the samples provided, write music for a setting where night is falling. The specifics of the setting and its source media are for you to explore.

The deadline for NeOST_4 is end-of-day Monday, February 15. All submissions made on time will be grouped into a Soundcloud playlist. The samples, as well as an Ableton file, can be downloaded here: https://we.tl/t-wFAA3pB4WH

you have some options!

Pro Tools has a free version, and also a free trial of their full version:
https://www.avid.com/pro-tools

Reaper is totally free (I think), and its interface might be more confusing at first, but it's a fantastic program:
https://www.reaper.fm/

Waveform also has a free version. I don't know much about this program but I've heard it's good, and it looks easier to use than reaper:
https://www.tracktion.com/products/waveform-pro

Any of those would do nicely. For some reason I want to recommend Waveform first even though I haven't used it at all. I think it's because it reminds me of Ableton the most out of the three, haha
