  1. So we just passed our second-to-last deadline, and I am very happy with the progress that we saw for this deadline. Not only do we have a handful of tracks that are nearly finished, we also saw a good amount of new WIPS and a few folks reaching out to get a bit more time for their updates. So thanks all, let's keep it up! Unfortunately we didn't hear from everyone, and that also means a track that previously was claimed has become available again. Anyone interested, I Closed My Eyes, the dreamy Game Over tune, is now up for grabs again! Next deadline is July 2nd. It'd be a good idea to shoot for a near final version of your track so you don't have to rush it towards the final deadline in September. Stay tuned!
  2. I'm not a real keys player, but I've never really considered an 88 keys keyboard. I've worked with 49 and 61 keys a lot, I found 49 keys perfectly doable and 61 very comfortable. Hardly use the octave +/- buttons on it.
  3. Track submitted! It's a pretty interesting entry I think, curious to hear what you guys think of it
  4. Great Noted, and welcome aboard!
  5. Fear ye not, I'll get you something for sure. I already got a WIP going like 2 months ago However, I will send it to you at the last moment because I want to work on it some more before I drop it, and preferably get the main arrangement done. As for compo incentives, I am not the right person to ask. Creating the music itself is my primary incentive, any other stuff I mostly consider bonus.
  6. I just put it on my desk between the screen and the keyboard. That way I can easily use it while recording some parts and still access the keyboard to put it in record mode or to stop recording. You need a decent amount of space though (depending on your controller).
  7. That's a pretty intriguing concept you have there, I rather like it. My fighting game history is pretty limited, mostly bits of Tekken, and I'm currently pretty much occupied with a lot of other things, but I'm interested to see what others think of the concept and I might even be able to chip in if it kicks off and my schedule has cleared.
  8. So we're in April already, and I'd like to remind y'all that we have a new deadline coming up. The next deadline is April 30! Also a reminder, if you don't check in with an updated WIP or neglect to tell us if you can't make the deadline, we'll unfortunately have to drop your claim. So don't let that happen and check in with us, ya hear? @Blake Inc. and @PabloComa are in the clear for this deadline, they already reached out to us with their status for this check-in. Really looking forward to seeing the first WIPs from @Sagnewshreds, @JonnyAtma, @Fishy, @dannthr, @HankTheSpankTankJankerson, @HeavyViper and @Kylok. Don't let us down and in stead amaze us with the coolness you'll bring! Also looking forward to updated WIPs from @zykO, @Rexy, @audio fidelity, @Harmony, @djpretzel, @Jorito, @Kylok. You're off to a great start, so keep it coming. And of course a shout out to @Hylian Lemon, @Chernabogue, @Sbeast, @Starphoenix, @Thirdkoopa. You guys are nearly there and it'd be awesome to see you bring your track to its completion. Lastly @Yami and @RebeccaETripp expressed interest in claiming a track. If you're still interested, don't forget to stake your claim There's 3 weeks left to that next deadline, so plenty of time to bring the goodness!
  9. Sad to see the project take a break, because some cool stuff was happening there, but I understand. Once my schedule clears up by the end of the year, I might be able to help out with some things, but for now I really need to focus on the other album projects first. Hope things clear up soon for you!
  10. Also happy to see it finally released. It was a lot of fun writing some music for this album, hope y'all appreciate the hard work that went into it
  11. For anyone curious about the lyrics in "Shovel Power" (such as they are), here goes:
  12. Team Knight - Shovel Power (Shovel Knight vs. Tinker Knight) Team Robot - Lonely Cosmic Workshop - (Saturn vs. Tinker Knight) Team Robot - Tinkering on Pluto (Pluto vs. Tinker Knight)
  13. Still of the Night and Arid Sands are still open, so if you wanna grab one of them (or even both), let me know. We'd be happy to have you on the album!
  14. Since we had a deadline earlier this month, it's time for an update We've had some shiny new WIPs from ThirdKoopa, Rexy, Kylok and the Eino Keskitalo/Jorito duo and also a great update (two actually) from Chernabogue. Also, as you probably already saw, we gained some more interest and that resulted in claims from ThirdKoopa, Kylok, HeavyViper and HankTheSpankTankJankerson. If I didn't do so yet: welcome aboard, guys! Good progress overall, but unfortunately we didn't receive updates from all of you. For some of you that's okay, because you told us why you couldn't do an update for the deadline and what it means moving forward. Unfortunately there's also some people from whom we didn't hear anything at all... So, to prevent claims from being stalled with no tracks in sight, we'll do things slightly different moving forward. If you can't meet a deadline, tell us why and how you'll remedy it and we'll work it out. However, if you neglect to at least tell us why you're not going to make the deadline, your claim will be removed. Of course you can get it back if you send us a WIP, but if somebody else snatches the claim, you're out of luck. We're doing this to prevent tracks being stalled with claims but no progress when other people would have loved to remix them. Hope you understand, and let's show those pesky album director people how it's done for the April 30 deadline, hmkay? Peace out.
  15. Just submitted my entry. This one was quite a bit of a struggle to get the arrangement and flow right, and I also tried to learn some new stuff to make things even more challenging for myself. Anyway, hope you enjoy a nice bit of retro 80s synthwave cheese, looking forward to the other entries!
