The People's Remix Competition 347
PRCv14-09

Hello everyone and Welcome to the People's Remix Competition!

Welcome to round 347 of PRC. Two rounds ago, PRC was Zora's Domain. it was Esperado who claimed the win. 4 Mixers entered the round.

I decided to go with an oldie for me, which is the cave 2 theme from Might and Magic: Darkside of Xeen. It was a humorous rpg that didnt take itself very seriously. Lots of truly goofy voice acting and some pretty memorable(if a bit short) tracks. This one is  a loop so you'll have to get creative with it ;)

To submit a song at the compo page you can use the ThaSauce page. If you use this, an account is required. If you don't want to use ThaSauce, please upload the song somewhere else and post a download link in this thread. I recommend Soundcloud, don't forget to allow downloads to enable me to upload the song at ThaSauce. I will keep using ThaSauce as the place where all songs are located.

If you want to use ThaSauce, the following steps should be done.

  • Click the ThaSauce Link.
  • Click the 'You are not logged in' button in the upper right.
  • Click on 'register' (at the bottom).
  • Read the terms and click 'I agree to these terms'. If you don't agree with them, upload the song somewhere else and post a download link as mentioned above (by doing that, you allow me to upload the song at ThaSauce.
  • Continue the process by filling in your information.
  • You will get a question to confirm that you're not a robot. Here are some possible answers:
  1. Name a compo: PRC
  2. Who organizes One Hour Compo: Starla
  3. Name a ThaSauce subdomain: compo.thasauce.net
  4. Who created Mega Mans: Capcom

A confirmation mail will be send. There might be some issues with it (meaning that you don't get it), if that is the case, upload the song somewhere else as described above.

Once registered, login with your username and password, go to the mentioned page and submit the song. If you want submit two or more songs you can create multiple ThaSauce accounts or upload the song somewhere else and post the download link.

After uploading your song, please check if your song plays and can be downloaded and played without problems. Only upload MP3 files.

  • You may enter as many mixes as you like and work with as many people as you like on each mix. You are free to create a second ThaSauce account for that if you use ThaSauce, it's needed to be able to upload a second remix if you use ThaSauce. Of course you can also upload it somewhere else and put a download link in this thread.

I should finally have some time to throw an entry together! Think I have a pretty solid idea as well. :-D

Just a heads up for people who listen to the youtube video, theres a little melody in the midi that you cant really hear in the youtube render. This is due to the way game music worked on dos computers, with the game  running midi through whatever soundcard you had. I guess the emulation in the video doesnt render very well. Alas it was the only video of the theme on youtube. 

 

P.s. Definitely plugging out a bonus remix of this one

PRC was Zora's Domain. it was Mega Man and it was Esperado 

Just a heads up, might want to change that line. Anyway, the song seems interesting. I'll see if I can pull a nice atmospheric piece together.

Have you thought about advertising PRC on the OC Remix Discord group. It could be a good way to get more participation and advertising for the competition.

(this quote was from PRC345)

I've signed up for the Discord group today, didn't get around to it earlier. I'm going to post small announcement over there in the #comps page, linking to this thread and/or ThaSauce.

Got an entry in! I'm glad I was able to triple the loop time. Still didn't make it over 2 minutes lol.

Don't know if I will be able to make the voting announcement on time, but voting will start when the deadline is over. There won't be an extension.

I decided to return to this contest and make a remix for this entry. The theme and its accompanying video remind me of an ancient tomb so I took that direction (to an extent). Good luck everyone.

Welcome to the voting stage 

The mixing stage is over. This round has 3 songs. The following people compete against each other    

Dewey Newt

PlanarianHugger

RonaldPoe

(if you want a different color, let me know by replying or sending me a PM). I won’t use the pictures anymore since I have issues by getting them at this page).

 

To vote, do the following:

·       Visit the stated ThaSauce Page and listen to all the entries.

·       Scroll to the form at the bottom of the screen or click PM.

·       Fill in the entries from first to third in the ThaSauce form or fill in your top 3. Participants only need to fill in the first and second box.

·       State a reasoning for it.

·       Participants are encouraged to vote and leave feedback. However, they may not vote for themselve, they get a free first place if they vote, so it's attractive for the results. Non participants are encouraged to vote to decide the winner and leave comments.

·       Esperado has a vote that counts twice.

·       Always look in this thread to find out who's the winner of the round after the voting stage instead of only looking at ThaSauce for the results. Especially since some people might vote by sending me a PM.

You have until THIS Monday, May 8th 10:59 AM ThaSauce time (18:00 UTC, 19:00 GMT) to vote.

If you vote by PM make sure that your top 3 (or top 2 for participants) is clear. I prefer something like this:

(To)

Bundeslang (if you follow the link you won’t have to add my name).

 

(Subject)

PRC ### Vote

 

(Message):

1: (remixer A )

2: (remixer B )

3: (remixer C )

 

(reasoning)

 

I will post the feedback given in the PM’s and the votes in this thread. The winner may choose the source tune for PRC349.

 


Check the ThaSauce Page to vote or click here to send a PM.

Results time.

 

RonaldPoe returns with 13 points, not avoiding the last place wooden spoon.

PlanarianHugger got 14 points, and gets second place

And the winner of PRC347 is Dewey Newt with 21 points.

Dewey Newt congratulations. You may select the source for PRC349. Send the source to me (with a MID/MP3 file, otherwise send a second source with a MID file) by PM, other options are PM me @ ThaSauce or by e-mailing to bambombim@gmail.com (I prefer a PM @Ocremix). Send your source as fast as you can, but before next Monday (15 May), 10:59 AM ThaSauce time (18:00 UTC, 19:00 GMT).

You may select any source for any game, but not a source with an OverClocked remix or a source which has been used in PRC before. An overview of the past PRC's can be found in the following links:

I'm fine with getting last place again (I almost expect it these days). I noticed people didn't catch on to some of the subtleties though. For example, the bass part is actually an original tune I harmonized (to an extent) with the original melody and the Hi-hats and cowbell parts (while not that obvious) are actually very wild. I'm probably going to work on this tune and refine it. Thanks for the criticisms though.

I also meant to say Futaba's Tomb from Persona 5 but mispronounced her name. That game is awesome and I've been playing it a lot lately.

I admit that I missed that the bass part was original. Sorry!

As a drummer I would say your track was definitely the most interesting percussion-wise. However, the cowbell you're using doesn't sound very good (maybe try replacing it with some deep bongos or toms if other cowbell samples don't fit the cave mood) and is a little too low in the mix. The hi hats are WAY too low in the mix. I had to listen again with headphones and turn it way up to even realize they were there.

Well done to everybody! Good number of votes this time. :) I've already got a source picked out for this one, should be fun!

The ThaSauce thread is already up. So if something bad happens to me or my internet connection, the round can still start. Only admin's can see the thread and source yet. Hopefully HoboKa doesn't abuse this advantage to create an OC-worthy song. For me, even if I would use this advantage I would still end up with the wooden spoon.
