  1. MnP 88: Maniac Mansion - Dave's Theme

    3 days to go, 0 entries. Umm...I tried my hand at this one but it kicked my ass. I'll try again in a bit, but uh...idk if it's gonna be good =/
  2. Fundraiser for bLiNd - lost all...

    Ignore previous preamble. Donated $15. Hope that gets you a meal or two bLiNd. All the best mate.
  3. MnP 88: Maniac Mansion - Dave's Theme

    EDIT Sorry - I'm laying on things wayyy too thick, my bad! Its hard to filter my thoughts when I get this excited. TWO awesome OCR vets coming down to pay homage to a classic game at the MnP venue, got me a bit excited overmuch. Curse you ADHD and possible autism!!! Right...to make things less awkward, I vow to do up my own entry. Better put on your best game, folks >: 3
  4. MnP 88: Maniac Mansion - Dave's Theme

    Shameless self promotion time ftw. You sly, sly devil you, Christopher. I couldn't help but purchase the album Since we're on the topic of self promo-stuff, I've kinda kept it on the down-low, but I've got 2 albums in the works, for some time (maybe too long). One is kind of a weird general-interests Electronic-Hybrid, and the other will be more focused on thematic VGM for game, visual novel and video stuff, so I'm hoping to make 'a limited creative commons license' and all that jazz. Also, thanks for coming down to MnP to put in the good word and stuff Mazedude - it really helps reinforce my resolve to press on with the competition (same with the rest of you guys :D)
  5. MnP 88: Maniac Mansion - Dave's Theme

    Hey, that's cool you dropped down to say hi and for feedback Master Yi!!. Are you interested in joining in this round? Need an account activation at ThaSauce? Also, nice remix - definitely retains the awesome groove and evolves a lot as it goes. 2:20 surprised me - wasn't expecting an epic metal segue hahaha. Sexy. EDIT Oops getting ahead of myself. If you do intend to submit this entry, you'd need to either do a different take or develop this one further - going by PRC rules here, since we're trying to make an even playing ground for the other entrants who have to start at square one (that being the MIDI in most cases lol)
  6. Too many projects in general

    Biggest problem I face is if I listen to the original or remix too much during its infancy, rather than after I've completely produced it. Apparently it's a very common trap that a lot of creatives face. I bet it was already mentioned here, but DL ; DR
  7. MnP 88: Maniac Mansion - Dave's Theme

    Might be a good idea. Can't hurt to try.
  8. MnP 88: Maniac Mansion - Dave's Theme

    Indeed. The midi lacks something, can't put my finger on it. Oh and, I checked it out for about 5 minutes and couldn't find any pitch bends that the source tune thrived on. x_X
  9. MnP 88: Maniac Mansion - Dave's Theme

    Might be a good opportunity to practice pitch-bending too. Sounds like there is a lot of that going on here - cool tune btw!
  10. For some reason images imbedded in hyperlinks are not showing. At least on this page. Is it because Firefox is borked on the html interface here? Sorry I don't know my web terminology lol. EDIT) I tried it on Opera, same issue is present. EDIT2) Okay, I copy/pasted ONLY in Opera browser and it works now. Firefox seems pretty gimped with some things. But I really dislike using Chrome, so I guess stick with Opera?? T_T
  11. MnP 88: Maniac Mansion - Dave's Theme

    Weird. My hyperlinks aren't showing the image anymore. Same when I copy the image from wikipedia or what have you. I should probably bring that up to OCR staff. EDIT) And big thanks for setting me right there. Been an awful start to my day... EDIT) Firefox isn't working with hyperlinks or reactions at OCR. It also doesn't open up ANY hyperlink within Outlook.live.com. Firefox why you betray me?

    Next round is up! https://ocremix.org/community/topic/46926-mnp-88-maniac-mansion-daves-theme/
  13. MnP 88: Maniac Mansion - Dave's Theme

    Weird...hyperlink images aren't showing.
  14. Compo: MnP (Meat 'n Potatoes) Midi: http://compo.thasauce.net/files/materials/MnP88_Ngmmdave.mid Youtube: Deadline: Feb Fri 26 @ 1PM Vote Ends: Jan Feb 28 @ 11PM Submit your remix Here when completed. MnP ARCHIVE - made by Trism MISSION STATEMENT The goal of Compo:MnP is to promote that "meat and potatoes" conservative approach to remixing: this includes the mood and composition of source tunes. It is up to the remixer to create their own personalization, or to simply give it a sound upgrade. Moreover, the compo is a great opportunity to hone your remixing skills and give video game music the respect that is due. SOME reinterpretation is recommended, but not required. MnP Instructions/Guidelines Covers and Sound Upgrades are permitted. Most or all of the source notes must be present (but not necessarily in the exact same order), secondly the mood (energy, pacing, feelings being conveyed etc) should also be retained. For example, a source tune that is fast-paced and energetic that's remixed into a mellow/chill-out theme would be a hard sell. If you decide to do a genre swap (i.e. symphonic to techno), make sure that the conditions of #2 are met. Submissions must be at a maximum of 20mb (keeping in step with ThaSauce's file size max). Only 1 entry per participant. Previous winner cannot participate but can submit a BONUS entry. Please don't make any comments about people's entries - including your own - until the Voting process is concluded. BONUS entries are exempt of this rule. All competitors and voters must adhere to the rules stated within: Competition Code and Conduct MISC/TIPS - When picking a source tune, make sure it has a MIDI to make ppl's lives easier. - In-game sound FX are permitted, so long as they don't comprise the whole track (i.e. replacing entire MIDI tracks with just sfx)
  15. MnP 87: Metroid Prime - Overworld 2

    Zorrakh! I forgot to comment you - gonna re-listen to your BONUS. Will edit this post in 3 mins. Oooo, nice rain-water and atmospheric start-up. Great sort of cut-off fade in and Torvus Bog kinda feel to it. Feels very Metroid Prime-y. Nice rock-vibe to it. Wow...SOMEONE in the Voting Process (you-know-who ) thought the guitar-work sounded fake and MIDI-ish, well, this still beats PS1 era sound and doesn't sound stiff like my samples lmao. Man you guys are so picky (J/K don't hit me All in good Fun T_T). Nice atmospheric break down with breathing. Honestly, if this were an actual *entry* I might've very well slapped this in 1st slot. 3:10 return to the main meat. MEATY. Oh yeah! Nerdgasm. Nice BONUS mix dude. What E-guitar sample is that btw?
