    Bit Wig Studio?

    Seems compelling enough to do some serious experimentation and tinkering. Might help me understand my keyboard better too. Thanks!!

    Bit Wig Studio?

    Nice, I noticed how fast that Bitwig loaded and I didn't need to "refresh plugins" manually. And, boy, does FL love to crash!! Premier Sandboxing sounds intriguing. May as well give Cakewalk a shot (but they say nothing is for free...maybe it data-mines your PC!!??) **the NSA approves of this message** ...I love how my mind takes me on useless tangents. Anyhoo, thanks for input guys! Hmm...now that I have Omnisphere...I'll need to grab something that is decent for orchestral stuff. Being an aspiring composer is not a cheap hobby x_X

    Bit Wig Studio?

    FL Studio doesn't play nice with 3rd party VST's when it comes to the Pitch Modwheel on my MIDI keyboard and that makes it a deal breaker for me, cuz I got my MIDI Controller so I could do that, as I always found doing it manually with a mouse to be a pain in the ass lol. Also, Bitwig demo came with my Nektar L88, so I wonder if it is better optimized for said MIDI keyboard *shrug*. Sounds like you have a pretty good setup yourself. BTW, your recent releases are sizzling, especially the collabs. I'm too derp to recall names, but that is some good shtuff. (edit) Yeah, having 2 DAW's on the go is probably wise for the creative flow. So much work to do. So little time.

    Bit Wig Studio?

    Anybody know if Bitwig Studio holds any water? Or would Reaper be a better alternative?? Looking to branch out with DAW's...but am stuck with PC for now. On a slightly different tangent, I now have an 88 key Nektar keyboard and I also got Omnisphere 2. ^.^ If I said something wrong, it's b/c I'm running on minimal sleep...

    O.o really? Lemme double check. Well, no wonder. Carry on then. Fixed the description and title.

    Spin the Wheel - Number 2

    Umm...correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that Driver 2 (PS2) lacks MIDIs to work with. N00Bs like me may struggle with that. Might wanna re-roll the round after you do your own investigation. But I'm pretty sure I'm right. Anyways, the round is tentatively up. I will alter it as needed. http://compo.thasauce.net/rounds/view/StW2

    Spin the Wheel - Number 1

    I clicked the LIKE and forgot to listen. BAD HoboKa bad!! 'Queen of Electro' has such a kinky Axiom Verge meets Mortal Kombat vibe to it. This would work in a real game too, imo. Very loopable and high-NRG. Can I bet any feedbackz on my entry? Oh, also, I PM'd Rama's team to fix your first round's date-glitch. Cya next round mate.

    PRC385 - End Of Year Free Round

    The UN seems to lean more and more to the Popular Republic of China, as the US continues to go full derp. So, maybe!! Better start leaning Chinese... (edit) and no worries, real-life sometimes sux. Often for me! Happy New Year dood.

    PRC385 - End Of Year Free Round

    Voted. Intermollesting round with lots of garden variety. And PINGAS. Oh wait...no there isn't, b/c I forgot to sub T_T
  10. Mr. L, nice X-Mas-y interpretation of the theme. The Low-Fi vibe makes it feel gives it a GBA vibe, so great nostalgia to be gleamed there. Trism made a great come-back! Love those chime bells (edit) and the percussion is, as usual, well produced. It's very MnP, in all the good ways lol. And nice play on words with the title "Advancing into the Holidays."
  11. Compo: MnP (Meat 'n Potatoes) MIDI: http://compo.thasauce.net/files/materials/MnP99_Elemental_Master-End_Credits_Ver3.mid Youtube: Deadline: Jan 28th Mon @ 1PM Vote Ends: Jan 31st Thur @ 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)
