    "Bundeslang must enter himself instead of letting HoboKa save the contest each time." By the way my vote included "I want easy sources as well, please scrap the rule that sources with OC Remixes aren't allowed," but it's not about wanting easy sources so much as wanting inspiring sources.

    The People's Remix Competition 378 PRCv15-14 Hello everyone and Welcome to the People's Remix Competition! In PRC376 it was again HoboKa who saved the contest by submitting a song. Again he picked a source. Because of the low participation I'm gonna try out a longer remixing stage. So the deadline is next month, more time to remix!! The longer duration of the round will not affect the length of a PRC season, it will just take longer to reach round 26 of the season. Note that also a poll is added. If anyone has ideas, let me know with a reply.

    Thanks for that and thanks Hoboka for submitting again a bonus. For the current round I'll try a monthly remix period instead of two weeks. I may consider to start PRC379 before PRC378 ends, but I'm not sure about that yet. PRC378 will start today. Evktalo, please send the source for PRC379 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 Wednesday (1 August), 10:59 AM ThaSauce time (18:00 UTC, 19:00 GMT).

    I always imagined the dynamics would be "nuclear bomb" not "FFF"

    The reverb your using makes everything sound like they're a bit too much in the distance. Increasing the pre-delay on it should bring things more to the front while still keeping the sense of space. You may need tone down the reverb a little as well. Also, try and double track the rhythm guitar to see that helps them sound more substantial. Also, arrangement-wise, I'm struggling to pick out elements from the original, like the melody, in your remix for some reason. That may be because your changing things up so much or because I'm being dumb.

    Some of the timing is off on the notes too, but for what I want to do that shouldn't be too big of an issue. Since we have a longer mixing period this time around, should be ample time to get something nice out.

    I liked em both. Hoboka did a nice job with the 8 bit piano part and the additions, while evktalo changed the beat and the vibe nicely. Also it's nice to see another Renoise user around. Is that the space piano instrument I hear?

    Any feedback for my BONUS? evktalo: This feels like a credits theme styled after the source tune, with a semi upbeat feel to it. Love the whistle-synth at the second half too!

    Compo: MnP (Meat 'n Potatoes) MIDI: http://compo.thasauce.net/files/materials/MnP96_Cv4-st2.mid Youtube: Deadline: July 23rd Mon @ 1PM Vote Ends: July 25th Wed @ 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)

    Ooh ooh ooh.. I've had this idea I've wanted to do for a while.

    My participation is often guided by whether my available time and interest in the source intersect. Lately that hasn’t happened. I’ll jump into the next round if the source is something I can work with (I need more arrangement practice).

    Hey everyone! I just completed this arrangement of 7PM from Animal Crossing: New Leaf. I feel like it's a pretty faithful arrangement overall. The main difference is that most parts were recorded with real instruments or better samples and I added a piano coda to give the piece a solid ending. Hope you guys enjoy it.

    Zelda (NES) - Dungeon

    EVAL Hey, I remember this one from the Meat & Potatos compo - I even gave it some praise, though I didn't believe it followed the spirit of the compo due to how liberal it was. For an OCR submission, though... Let's go through the good, first: the production is quite good on this! The crunchy percussion, the gating, the well mixed synths, etc., it all blends well, it's all easy to hear and distinguish, and overall it's quite pleasant to the ear. I mentioned before and I'll say it again, the variations on the theme are quite cool, too - lots of chord changes to keep things recognizable and yet familiar... periodically. While the composition has a lot of cool ideas, there are two things that do hold this back, as far as chances on the panel are concerned. Firstly, while for some portions the source is easy enough to hear, a lot of this (likely over 50% of the track) really deviates to the point where the source is impossible to hear, outside of the shape of the texture in the background. A rule of thumb that's often followed is if the source is clearly present for at least 50% of the track, and from a glance I'd suspect that this arrangement doesn't pass on that front. You MIGHT be able to make a case here, if you give some timestamps where the source is used, so if you feel I'm missing something then put out a timestamp and I can evaluate what you're talking about - I've seem minds change as far as source usage is concerned, but without a timestamp and an argument this'll probably be turned down on those grounds. The second issue that hold this back is the flow of the arrangement. As far as form goes, the track doesn't seem to have much direction or sense of beginning or end. The chords used, while great in isolation, don't make too much sense in sequence. This is a hard thing to "fix", though - considering it's so integral to an arrangement I can't give any suggestion that doesn't really come to "rewrite the piece". I'd say this'll probably get to the panel (well, it WILL get to the panel, I do the inboxing, lol) and get rejected, but I suggest making a timestamp to justify source usage and sending it off, anyway. While I have some issue with the flow of the arrangement, others might not, and if you can convince the panel that the track indeed uses enough source with a time stamp then you might have a shot on the panel. A long shot, sure, but a shot nonetheless. Best of luck!

    Ah, thanks for the critique. I'll definitely add some more reverb and panning. As for 1:50-3:18, it's for a contest where we have to mash genres so I might just end up making two versions. One for the contest and one just being a straight synthwave cover. Also, I follow Jorito, he makes some really good stuff. Thanks again for taking time out of your day to give some feedback!

    Anytime I see Secret of Evermore, you have my attention. Great source selection! On the production side of things, there isn't a lot of mud, which is really nice. Utilizing some more reverb and panning will help this mix tremendously. The synth arp that comes in at 1:03, in particular, would be nice if you either panned some of the notes or added slight delay effect with a pan. Arrangement wise... You have interesting ideas, but everything plods along too much and suffers from a lack of dynamic range. 1:50-3:18 doesn't fit with the rest of the arrangement for a track being billed as synthwave. Try introducing different synth instrumentation into that section, or consider scrapping everything altogether and reworking it into something new. That's your creative call. Check out Jorito's recently posted track or sift through some of Sir_NutS' catalog for good synthwave inspiration from within this community. You have a decent base thus far. Look forward to your future update!

    I find that thinking about my creative endeavours often fills me with anxiety, to the point where I'm compelled to avoid them at all costs. Things like knowing I have no ideas, or being afraid to return to a half finished piece of music because I don't know how to improve it further. I often read when looking for anxiety management tips that channeling your anxious thoughts into something creative can be a great outlet, but when it's your creative outlet that is causing the problem how do you learn to reprogram your mindset? Any help is much appreciated.

    Im just terrible at remixing now. I often miss my early days on ocr when i tried to do almost every one of these.

    Just a quick word: if I cannot produce a decent WIP for the Boss B track here in the next couple of weeks, I'm letting go of the claim in case anyone else wants to give it a go.
