Deru and NI have teamed up to mark the release of FORM 1.1 with a track challenge. Create an original track using exclusive samples from Deru and FORM (free demo available). Deru and NI will pick the winners – prizes include an S-Series keyboard, KOMPLETE 11 ULTIMATE, and special Deru giveaways.


1. Download Deru’s sample package: DOWNLOAD DERU SAMPLES

2. If you don’t already own FORM, try out the free demo version. Load Deru’s samples and make your own completely new sounds.

3. Create an original track based on the sample material from Deru and, if possible, FORM. Deru provides some input: “We’ll be judging the tracks based on their strong character and unique voices – music that doesn't easily fit into any one genre.”

4. Upload your finished track to Soundcloud and tag with #deruxform

5. Closing date for entries is May 1, 2017.

NI and Deru will pick the winning tracks and notify winners.


1x KOMPLETE KONTROL S49 keyboard, 1x KOMPLETE 11 ULTIMATE + gold Deru package
3x KOMPLETE 11 + silver Deru package
5x FORM (or another software instrument of the same price) + bronze Deru package
