  1. To add to aj_hix36's collection, here are the additional files from the 2005 'Plutonium Edition': http://themacattack.net/ROLF-Plutonium-Edition.zip I'll only host these for a few days though, so get in quick.
  2. I'm in a similar situation upgrading my PC and thought I could just use my old PCI m-audio sound card to get me by for the time being. It wasn't quite so simple, because if you're getting a new motherboard you'll need check what kind of PCI slots it has. From what I can tell, the newer PCIe slots won't take a legacy PCI card. You're probably just better off going external.
  3. It would probably be this one: http://themacattack.net/music/Window.mp3 I've got plenty of other bits and pieces that I wrote before this, but this is probably the one an average listener could think 'this sounds complete and intentionally written that way'. It was written in 2002 or maybe early 2003, when I was studying baroque music in high school. Writing this was mostly an exercise in one of my text books, following their guide to form. I modified it further, joining two separate ideas together into the one. Following their guide, I feel like I cheated a little bit, like I was 'composing by numbers', but I did like how the result sounded. A few years late I threw a couple of Soundfonts and reverb onto it, which you can hear here.
  4. I've been holding onto a couple of the old WIPs for this, and I'm glad it's finally made it onto the site. A neat take on one of my favourite themes from the game. Nice one, Guifrog.
  5. Look into de Blob. Whilst I haven't played it, I recall reading interesting things about it's use of music with the gameplay.
  6. http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR00313/ This ReMix is probably more the sort of thing you're after though: http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01181/
  7. Silver is packaged along with Gold, so you still get access to these.
  8. Yeah, I just wrote it and didn't even think to check. And I don't think Running Man has any kind of credits in it, so there wouldn't really be any opportunity to acknowledge it. Some fansubbing groups do note what the music is with some variety shows (assuming they know what it is). The ReMix was also used briefly in episode 5 (edit: and ep. 6 & 7) , which makes me wonder if it's part of a larger collection, meaning it potentially could appear on other variety shows. I've heard pieces from Evangelion and Cowboy Bebop on some of these shows before.
  9. I've recently gotten into the popular Korean variety show Running Man. I started watching episode 4 today when I heard something very familiar: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hthvTAXEA9U#t=02m55s (music plays again at 3:57) It took me a little while to realise, but that's actually Dr. Fruitcake's Mario'sTropicalParadise. A few of the Korean variety shows I've seen have had a great selection of obscure music, but I certainly was not expecting something from OC ReMix to make an appearance. Edit: v Can't change topics.
  10. In Windows 7 (possibly earlier), you can edit simple details through a standard explorer window. Right click on the MP3, click Properties, go to the 'Details' tab, and change what you need.
  11. Chernabogue, you're awesome not only for getting your entry in first, but for your interesting take on the theme. I gave out a laugh when I read 'Welcome to Hell', with the title foreshadowing what I was going to hear. You did well to create the dark soundscape you were aiming for. It's little difficult to pick out the original melody, but because I know it well I was able to identify the different fragments in there, and how you altered the timing/flow to get your result. Thanks for tackling this. I hope you had fun with it! Eilios: How did you go with Gumshoe's Theme?
  12. I think you can just upload them here: http://compo.thasauce.net/rounds/view/FBRC2011
  13. I didn't think of checking previous years. I probably would've picked something else. Oh well, good luck to Eilios with that one. I look forward to hearing what you come up with too, Chernabogue!
  14. I've zipped up all of the VOCR1 entries, including the original instrumental and alternate entry. You can download it here: http://themacattack.net/music/VOCR1.zip Smooth Steel was my pick out of the competition. It's a good mix, however I think that Malcos and zircon could've worked together to flesh it out a little more from a structural perspective.
  15. http://www.pdsounds.org/ is a site worth checking out. I've had it bookmarked for stock sounds for a little while now, but haven't looked it in great detail yet.
