its been awhile since i joined an orc, so i MIGHT have to give this one a go...and i have a feeling that quite a few others will as well.
07-01-2008, 05:49 PM
Possibly I throw something in as well. Hopefully Sadorf will do as well, so he can win this so I don't have to make a MIDI, I have never done that (like Zephyr Thread).

Possibly I throw something in as well. Hopefully Sadorf will do as well, so he can win this so I don't have to make a MIDI, I have never done that (like Zephyr Thread). It wasn't so bad, FL studio is good for that because you can just make the song using normal workflow and convert it all to midi afterwards (except automation).
In short, ENTER! (You too Sadorf, and anyone else reading this) We need some more love for this compo.
Not quite sure what you mean by that, if you mean that you can't hear anything, I'm not sure how come it exported like that, if you turn the volume up to full you might be able to hear it, otherwise just import it into some host to use it. If anyone can tell me why it's like that let me know.

**downloading the MIDI**
I know from previous Contests that each time I downloaded the MID file from the compo page, I entered that Contest.
..Jesus, if everything continues this way, I even have to look out for the 8MB size limit...
07-12-2008, 01:53 AM
Ah, it looks as though someone likes my side-sig... :wink:
07-12-2008, 03:53 AM

Alright, I'm working on something!
Hopefully I'll get it finished by the deadline.
07-20-2008, 03:32 PM
If you're gonna be a few hours late or something, ask Doulifee for an extension, with so few entries so far I'm sure he'd allow it.
07-20-2008, 04:28 PM
I should be good. This has been the only day I've had some free time, so I'm gonna use it dammit! haha
Plus I've still got several hours.

2. Each remixer own a page dedicated to himself (http://remixcompetition.doulifee.com/mixerid.php?mixerid=n0mad) in the orc/prc database. Feel free to fill it (send me a bio via pm).

My full song name is 'Driven on the Other Dimension', I guess googlepages missed the last characters.
I will send my bio before friday when I go on holiday for a week (be back at friday 1 august). So if I win this, I will have to do a quick original and send it in that friday.
What are the rules for voting for participants, can I vote for myself, or do we get a bonus when we vote (or do we just have to vote and not for myself).
Anyway, nice turnout and good luck all.
07-21-2008, 10:42 PM
yup, you can't vote for yourself, but bonus point (a 1rst place) will be added.
07-21-2008, 11:49 PM
Also, my remix title is actually Driven Insane, but no worries there! :D
Glad to see a bunch of entries for this contest! This was a good original source tune.
07-22-2008, 11:09 AM
I've send 2 PM's.
One with my vote.
One with a small bio for the ORC/PRC database.

[1st]Hard Drive By just64helpin 20
[2nd]Overdrive by seitokaibarocket 13
[3rd]Driven on the Other Dimension By Bundeslang. 12
[4th]Overdriven On by Chavous 9
[5th]Driven Insane by ProjectSpam 7
Bundeslang got 3 votes with only 1rst place..but that wasn't enough.
Chavous got 3 votes too.... only for second place.
Project spam was granted with a majority of 3rd place.
Just64helpin - I like the lead. The part around 1:30 is a bit boring, nothing happends for a while, but I like it.
Chavous - The introduction is great, the part after it is long and not variating at all. The part after 1:14 is good, but it's too long. I don't like the end
ProjectSpam - Nice intro. I like the incoming drums. The main lead isn't variating during the whole song. I like the part around 1:11. The end is like 9 seconds nothing.
Setokaibarocket - I like the first part, the trancey sounds and the voice are a good combination. Some sections, around 1:15 and especially 2:30, are too long, but I like the way you're variating it after 1:38. The end is good.
Hard Drive - just64helpin;
Really like the originality in the sounds you used, they're very creative and mix together well. I'm
not a huge fan of the way that some of your melodies go sometimes, but that's okay. Not too much else
to say other than that the mixing was done well and that the sounds where well placed. Good job.
Driven Insane - ProjectSpam;
Overall a fairly odd mix overall, the sounds are all muffled and mixed together in interesting ways. It
has a few sketchy transition and fairly random parts, keep working on it, but good try! Very nice
melody in a lot of the parts, you're good at writing complimenting melodies, but they could be arranged
a little more organized.
Overdrive - Setokaibarocket;
Nice subtle beginning, nice percussion setting the mood, the it breaks into the main beat with lots of
flair and the main melody pounding. Very well done beat and melody adaptations, I love the subtle
slides in the synth. It all breaks down then restarts, I love that small line with the simple synth on
the restart. Once again a good beat when it kicks in (I need to learn to write those yet) a tad bit
repetetive around here, could use either more variations or more movement. Ending is alright, but I
feel there could have been something that would have fit better. Great Job, hopefully you'll get to do
the next original, I'm looking forward to it.
Overdriven On - JayLuv
Slightly busy intro, not my favourite part. Once it settles down the bass sets the mood really nicely
with some very nice mellow guitar parts complimenting the main wah-wah melody. I'm very impressed that
you recorded this all yourself, congrats on that feat. Very well arranged and played, mastering could
use a little bit more work (there is a little clipping in some parts). I enjoy the solo guitar lines
you threw in. Guitar gets a little odd and crazy near the end, but the song ends nicely. Great job,
especially with doing these parts live. This song reminds me VERY MUCH of Metroid Metal.
The Other Dimension - Bundeslang
Fairly basic, but solid beginning, starts a little slow, but that's alright. I think the song is a
little long (7:17) but a lot of parts could be slightly shaved off to lower that time a little, I'd have
preferred a quicker moving shorter song. Some of the bass notes and melody are questionable around
2:00. I like it when it drops into the main melody around 2:30 once again some questionable melodies
after that. Somewhat odd transition around 3:00. You really built on that chording section and came up
with a few new ways to do it, that was good. Transition a little patchy at 5:00. Beat is slowly
starting to bother me at this point (it's been the same main beat the whole song, try to change it up
every once in a while). Questionable melody again around 6:30. It gets real nice at 7:00 until the bass
finishes the song with an unmatching melody. Good effort, It takes a lot of work to get something this
long. Try to focus your efforts on a shorter piece next time.
Great Job everyone, whoever won should get their polished up and sent in. I'll see you all next month!
Congrat for our winner. And don't forget to send me your song for the next orc before the beginning of August. :nicework:
07-28-2008, 10:51 AM
Gah! :wink: Now I gotta prepare another MIDI...
