  1. This IS ambitious and wow it starts off no bars held. And WOW the YT algorithm has utterly failed you mate. You'd think that a tag like Chrono Trigger would garner at least 10,000 views off the bat. Google sure is a shitty Big-Media pandering, Disney-cock sucking garbage pit... Do you have Soundcloud and Bandcamp?? Might get more views there. Right. Loving the production and the breakdown at 4:00 is great. Is this E/W symphonic library samples??
  2. Any luck with Spin the Wheel? I've been out of the loop for some time. Working on project stuff and general health stuff I already ranted about lmao.
  3. 5 day extenion April 20th 1PM Voting ends April 23rd 11PM
  4. OK, so that's 2 votes for an extension there. Extension inbound. We're coming in hot - brace for no-submissions impact!! Speaking OF votes, luckily no one submitted any yet, so we're good there.
  5. Hey Kat, thanks for subb'ing. What source tune did you remix? I'm thinking it's Launch Octupus. Was a bit hard to tell at first. Haha. 4 hours to go. I'm fine with sitting this one out. You can take next round pick if no one else who isn't a BONUS sub's
  6. I tried and failed to do recovery shtuff. It's really Starla's domain at this point. I think it's her rodio, so to speak.
  7. Nice. I see E/W is offering a monthly subscription for their stuff. I am mighty tempted. Sample library sounds solid actually. I'd still probably use a different crash sample. But if it's over-compressed, that's an issue. Whenever I deal with over-compression or loudness, I take ALL of my tracks and reduce them by 1/2 or 3/4 (Volume wise) depending on how badly I cocked up the mix first time through then I sorta work my way back up to a reasonable level. Depending on how much I give a crap about it all. A friend of mine pointed out that MOST new sample libraries already mix their samples quite nicely. Seriously, try doing NOTHING about the mix and return everything to a normal EQ values. Re-post this and see if there are complaints forthcoming. Hopefully someone else will come in to help you there, b/c I'm not a mix-guru just average level. Top link from CompoThasauce was the one I used Paremtric EQ 2 and it is the LAST time I'll ever use that shitty half-assed mixer synth. http://compo.thasauce.net/rounds/view/MnP87 Now this is without. I'm sure there are still some nitpicks to be had, but my god is it cleaner and not "roofed" off.
  8. Hmmm. Maybe the space between the bass and the mid range (I dunno the exact hz) is a bit crowded - *tip* if you're using FL Studio...do NOT use Fruity EQ 2 - it completely distorts the lower ends and has frustrated me for years on end - ditch that shit and either use the Mixer itself or grab Voxenglove or something decent. Maybe a different crash sample, something "lighter" can't really describe it. It seems to be clipping a lot, probably due to shitty recording quality on the creator's end, not your fault there. I LOVE good breakdowns, like at 1:20~ area that is solid shit. Love the basswork. The strings are OK. Dunno if that's OCR bar passing or not. What sample libraries are you using?
  9. Well, I'm sure some people will cast aspersions, but I like this tune a lot. It has that awesome 90's electro-house vibe we all secretly crave. It's a guilty pleasure. Faptastic.
  10. Used my keyboard to figure out the notes then I fixed them b/c my god, the left hand stretches 2 octaves frequently on the arp. I'm guessing Akira did this all one handed ...That sounded wrong (or maybe that sounded right). (Probably used a mouse). Anyways...how's it sound? O right. Source:
  11. Uh. Gotta level with you, I've never played that one, and I have a vast backlog of games T_T. On a more relevant note, I'd also have to commission X vocalist, as it takes a lot of time and effort - unless said vocalist is pointed my way and knocks on my door and is very enthusiastic to collaborate, then I might do this pro-bono. Failing that, $$$ has a way of moving things along. *wink wink, nudge nudge* I'm a hobo so....gotta feed my pet rats and shit. Thanks for the praise kyle.
  12. So this drunk-ass hobo managed to pull himself out of the gutter and got the ball rollin'... 3 entries!!
  13. Compo: MnP (Meat 'n Potatoes) MIDI: Godzilla - (NES) Pluto Stage Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 - "The Last Sleigh Ride" MMX - Octopus Tentacle Rape - I mean... LAUNCH OCTOPUS Youtube: Deadline: April 20th at 1PM....Uh ignore that link @11001001 Vote Ends: April 23rd at 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)
