Challenge over! Gibbonacci become the winner! Congratulations for the effort! I'd also learn that it the numbers was the best part of the challenge for reference to a follow up soon. I also apologize for the mistake with the fourth letter that didn't exist, very sad about that mistake.
Update:
The intended pronounciation if that applies in the questions is intended to be in Swedish. Feel free to drop any uncertain things here.
Happy friday!!!
If you didn't got enough challenge at your work this week and want three months of Spotify Premium, please read on below:
I would like to give you a little challenge where you could get three months of free spotify premium!
The premium code below has lost some of it's characters which can be found by the hints described followed. The first one who solve this puzzle should ASAP redeem it code (before someone else do it) and will three months of premium listening paid. The code is
*R*EyYp*pP
where the * is the lost characters.
To solve the puzzle, you need to listen to this record carefully and answer the questions below:
Listen carefully in the song below:

Hints
The first letter
The first letter is a number ( 0 < x < 9 ) that is resembling the amount of total piano keys in each sequence that are equal to themselves with a factor of total strokes per chord (think the nice beat). 
The second letter
The second letter is a letter which usual pronounciation is accomplishing a sound somehere in the track. It starts to sound in the middle of the song, in the calm down after the first piano hook has ended (the middle of the song). It goes up and down continously...
The third letter
Listen carefully to the trance riff. How many levels does it goes per beat plus 1?
The fourth letter
In addition to the piano melody, there is a stroke of beep melody preceding the piano chords. If you listen carefully, the sound is not unlike a common soft wovel. The letter is the letter after the soft wovel alphabetically.

Whilst being very hard, It's a cool way to do a competition and you should do more like this. 

 

Again, thanks a lot!

Is this going by Swedish pronunciations?

rodix

Upper case or lower case?

Gibbonacci

I was so up for this! But for the first one I got 11...and then for the second one I don't even know where it means!

krikelin

1st: Number

2st: Uppercase

3st: Number

4st: Uppercase

krikelin

Yes it was swedish pronounciation.

2RuEyYp6PPe hmmm doesn't work xD

Gibbonacci

Ah...I don't know what the swedish pronounciation would be....

 

Good luck all!

 

This is what I got: 9REEyYp9U

 

Cool idea for a competition though - you should do this kind of thing more.

 

Also - am I close? Is there a 1 month runner up prize? 😉

So hard Smiley Sad

mchal

It will be easier to brute force it than guess it!

 

EDIT: 60840 posibilities... And even if it's easy to create and run a script to "redeem" every single code... I'll pass it.. even if 3 months premium is tempted 😉

 

BTW, Code is definitely here: http://wth.me/spotify.php 😉  with 60839 other possibilites 

annbelizabeth

this is what i got

where do i input the answer?

3RByyp2ppY is what i got

RobHannay

mchal, how did you get that? You probably understand it better than I do, but from what I can tell,

 

Assuming the possiblites of:

 

a. 10 edit: Also, I believe that by ( 0 < x < 9 ), he actually means inclusive???

b. 26 (the 'extra' Swedish letters aren't used for Premium codes, are they?)

c. 9 As it's +1, 0 isn't possible (although I doubt it's 1 either) and it can't be 9 because that would make 10 which is two digits, if that makes sense?

d. 9 (according to Wikipedia, there are nine vowels in Swedish? And assuming that 'vowels' is meant by 'wovels' in the OP)

 

that gives a possibility of... 21 060 different permutations

 

Where have I gone wrong? 😛

mchal

I guess you are right 🙂

I did:

1st wildcard: 1-9

2nd: A-Z

3rd: 1-9

4th: A-Z

 

Excluding swedish letters... and with 4th wildcard with vowels only you may have only 6 possibilites: A, E, I, O, U, Y (I guess), which ends with 14040 possibilities 🙂

Can't you give a hint???

 

Would really want to win, but this is way too difficult!!!
