All tracks start at the same spot; you can place them at the start of the project in your DAW.
The tracks are on hand as 24 bit wav files in 44.1 kHz, the zipped folder has a size of 675 MB.
The song has a tempo of 140 bpm.

The MIDI file is only a chord track, which is not intended to be audible in the mix!

You will also find the HOFA Mix by Jochen Sachse in that folder. This mix shows how they envision the song but is not intended as a reference.


You are allowed to master, copy & paste and pitch or even remove individual elements. For the sake of fairness it’s not allowed to add new tracks or to change tempo, pitch or structure of the song.

The jury is looking for harmonious sound characteristics with balanced levels that fits in the genre, a well-defined spatial depth and a natural overall sound.


Your options for the remix are endless: use those tracks of the download you want and add whatever you like. Nothing’s forbidden – but of course the song should still be recognisable and “radio-compatible”. Let your creativity run wild!

When rating the remix, the jury pays attention to sound quality, sound design, arrangement and balanced proportions.

Closing date for entries is January 31st, 2023

You can submit your finished mix/remix to us via the upload portal hofa-contest.com
There you can also listen to the submissions of the other participants.

For organisational reasons we can accept only one (the last) sent mix for the contest. Please check your mix in detail before you send it.

Enjoy the mix and good luck!
