- You should include at least one sample, voice, or musical instrument.
- You should include at least one instance of voice or real instrument.
- At least 2 of the tracks must change volume multiple times throughout the song – click on the downward pointing arrow at the end of the track icons to make a track’s volumne fade in or out
- At least one track must include a segment that loops – usually created by clicking in the upper left corner of a region and dragging to the right.
