    We scoured the land for the most evil people we could find to join us, and we're proud to add @prophetik music and @Rexy to the judges panel. I'm personally aiming to finally have that submissions queue go to 0 by the end of this year, and we're excited to have their help. Revel in their fresh perspectives and presence now before they become entrenched in the system and simply become part of the evil mass of musical oppression that the rest of us have morphed into. (a.k.a. WELCOME!)

    Compo: MnP (Meat 'n Potatoes) MIDI: http://compo.thasauce.net/files/materials/MnP104_Sonic_Lost_World_-_Tropical_Coast_Act_1.mid Youtube: Yoooo....(You can tell how stoked i am in winning my first real MnP...) Since the last MnP, i got major summer vibes. So let's continue the summery tradition with some seriously underrated Sonic music. (Sonic seems to be getting some love lately lol). The game is Sonic Lost World, and the track name is Tropical Coast Act 1. Self Explanatory, plays in the stage (Other stages however, have real composition names. This one oddly doesn't. Oh well) Think of Bob Marley Meets Goldie. (Look both of them up) Let's hope ya gimme de Jamaican vibes mon. (Yeah i might have ruined that joke...) Ehem...Good luck to you all!  -TheVideoGamer Deadline: August 8th Thur @ 1PM Vote Ends: August 12 Mon @ 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)

    An Apology

    Ten years ago, we were mostly teenagers and college kids who thought the internet was serious business. Then we (most of us, anyway) grew up, got jobs, got laid, had a few drinks and smokes, and learned to chill the fuck out. Don't worry, we were all shitty back then, and we mostly don't remember anybody's shittiness from ten years ago except our own.

    WANTED: killer EDM producer

    Howdy, OCR forums. I'm directing a project for OverClocked Records that is similar to OCR's Super Cartography Bros album, in that it's working with short, recognizable themes and turning them into EDM tracks. I need someone who thinks they have the killer studio chops to take a short theme and turn it into an EDM (house, dubstep, future bass, riddim, etc.) banger. What's more, you need to be able to pull this off in the span of a few weeks. If you think you're up to it, send me a sample of your work, and let's talk! There is no payment up front, but this will be a commercially-released album with royalty payments.

    What happening ?

    Don't you worry - we're still alive and kickin'. Lots of work on the back end of the site going on at the moment in order to make sure that things keep moving on the site, which while less noticeable is important in keeping the site moving along with little problem. Generally, it's easy to think that OCR isn't what it used to be, and in some ways you're correct - what OCR used to be was a monolith of a site where most VG arrangements were vetted and distributed. Today, though, we have sites like Youtube, the Materia collective, Pixel Mixers, etc., that all distribute VG arrangements elsewhere, which is only a good thing for the community at large. It does look like it shrinks OCR's contribution to the community by comparison, but it's really an illusion: take a look at OCR in 2009 and compare it to today, and you'll find that we've grown considerably in that time. Forum activity has waned, but that's true across the spectrum; a lot of communities have moved onto things like Discord (of which OCR still has an active and thriving community - check it out), so that's less telling of OCR's condition and more the state of the internet in general. Concerning albums, we generally don't officially direct any albums - that's entirely community based. If you want more albums to be made, then by all means help out with those that are already in the works (you can check em' out in the Projects forum), or you can get to recruitin' for one. Had a wonderful album come out recently from a relative newer member (who isn't a remixer herself), so it's not unheard of. Really, though, it's not a bad thing to hear fans "lament" OCR's glory days - it means we still have something to live up to, which is encouraging. That being said, don't despair, OCR is still quite an active force on the internet; we're not going anywhere.

    1) I concur with your assumption that the judges would likely reject your submission, as it does not have any variance in structure from the source material. Having said that... 2) Your take is still quite enjoyable. Incorporating guitar in place of the original synth pieces gives your arrangement a more aggressive feel that reminds me of the score to Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. While this community favors adding new measures to remixes, I share your belief that there are times when it is nice to listen to a cover rather than a remix. Sometimes, new instrumentation is sufficient, and other times, reinterpretation of the musical motifs is beneficial. I see no reason why both approaches to remixing cannot co-exist with equal esteem given to each. 3) At the end of the day, my philosophy when it comes to any creative endeavor is to first and foremost create something that I enjoy. I realize how selfish that sounds, but such is my outlook. If others enjoy what you are creating, then that is of course welcome, but never is it the end goal. It is not so much that we ought not seek to share creative works that can be enjoyed by others, but if we make ourselves beholden to what others expect, then what we are creating is not truly ours. Ultimately, I choose to submit works to OC Remix only when I feel the project just so happens to overlap with the submission criteria, but never do I change something I've made to fit said criteria unless there is something fundamentally wrong with the composition. As such, there are remixes on my YouTube channel that I'll never submit, and there are others that I am patiently waiting to submit (I already have one arrangement being reviewed by the panel). But to each his own. My friend, I wish you well on your creative journey.

    Some have even expressed disapproval with certain soundtracks going the Hollywood route... That what it is nowadays..... Stuff like Batman and Robin is why I like VGM. It’s catchy but so unique to itself, nor is it imitating Hans Zimmer, which is getting old at this point.... Thanks for the entry anyways

    (edit)Rock and Metal are my fav's of "mainstream", and I like me some DJ Shadow. Not as familiar with mainstream shit honestly. At least to me, VGM is truly what keeps musac alive. The most creative aspects of it anyhow. BTW, I submitted an entry. Hope you like. (edit2) As a caveat I'm well aware that VGM draws from more conventional (and otherwise) sources, but I mean, I may as well be saying the grass is green and the sky is made of Mountain Dew. Mmmm Diabeetus.

    I appreciate good music in general - even country if it isn't the mainstream LOST MUH TRUCK and I MARRIED MUH SCEPTIC TANK (dunno where I'm going with that). The genre is moot so long as there is room for evolution. But it's always nice when there is a very "loose" mold (or mould?) to work with; gives me more room to add new textures and rhythmic varieties.

    Streets of Rage? lol I guess you forgot PRC 384 (Bulldozer). Oh and Phantasy Star 4's ost is dope, but it feels more in line with Contra, in stylistic appearances (More of a rock/metal approach with occasional folk pieces. I dunno it's just how i interpret it...) To be honest, i like all Video Game music, especially those that branch out into something unexpected. You might think, from my source picks, that i just find a fast-paced techno track, but i actually like slower tunes, and for your MnP i picked an ambient/string based track (MnP 101). Still though, this type of music does rock!

    Advice for new ReMixers

    If you have good piano skills, why not try your hand at some piano only arrangements first? Or maybe a sonata? That way, it’s easier to focus on the essentials of arrangement and composition without getting all distracted by technical stuff such as plugins, MIDI, controller data, etc. If you can make something sound good and complete on piano, it should be easier to translate it into something different and more fully fleshed out than doing it the other way around. After all, being limited to 10 notes max does kinda force you to get the essentials of the piece down.

    Advice for new ReMixers

    SO For the most part, find out what you like. Go on a soul searching adventure to find out what you like, and why. A friend of mine was active at OCR, and several other communities as a metal guitarist. More recently, he learned that while he was okay with metal, he really loved and wanted to do other things - jazz, gospel, blues, classical, etc, but felt before this point that he had to play FOR other people. Find out what kind of music you like and why you like it so you can put yourself into what you produce. If you are making something because you think other people will like it, it will be hard to put yourself into it and the result may not be something you're proud of. Once you have an idea what you want to do, really dig into what makes that thing sound the way it does. If it's rock, is it a certain guitar tone? Is it a type of drum groove? If it's classical, is it a type of orchestration, is it a type of chord voicing? Etc. Once you find out what you like, really dig into it and find out what makes it tick so you can create things in that style authentically and effectively. Create, A LOT. Start a remix, and challenge yourself to finish it regardless of whether it's good or not. If you produce a finished thing, and it's bad, you can quickly find out what is good or bad about it, then start a new one. Use what you learned, avoid some mistakes, etc. Create as much as you can. You really won't make the same mistakes over and over again, right? Experiment with new things, find out if they speak to you. An important thing to note about that last point, it's easy to get caught in this insecurity of thinking that what you produce isn't good or people won't like it, then hide it, or not finish anything. Nothing will ever get better that way. Join the community. The forums are nice, but a lot of conversation and activity happens on the discord server, link at the top of the page. This is what I have off the top of my head.

    I recently covered "Dance Through the Danger" from Shantae: Half-Genie Hero! I went for a mellow, acoustic treatment of the source. I sang, played the harp, hammered dulcimer, Irish bouzouki, percussion, and enlisted my husband for djembe and video editing. Hope you enjoy it!
