  1. This is a really fascinating idea that could potentially be a blessing or a curse, depending on implementation. Mind elaborating on your vision and/or requirements for those tracks?
  2. Great to see some Ridge Racer in there. Props to whoever comes through this round, cause hardcore is not an easy genre to arrange.
  3. The plan was to motivate others to enter the round during the extension. That plan has backfired. :D @HoboKa @Dextastic Thanks for the feedback guys, it's appreciated more than you know. :) @Bundeslang First place wooden spoon eh? I'll hit you up with a source asap.
  4. @DarkSim Guess I need to stop boosting frequencies that are out of my hearing range, especially the low-end. Thanks you so much for the listen and critique.
  5. Yeah, SoR2 pipe hit is one of the most cathartic sfx in all of retro gaming. Sadly Lizardcube didn't get the memo.
  6. Glad to see the compo is still going. Might try to get a mix in before the extended deadline. Are the old TS credentials still valid for compoverse? Worse case I'll send you a link.
  7. This massive undertaking is made all the more impressive considering what you had to go through to lay the groundwork for this project. More Phantasy Star coverage is always a good thing and I wish you mad luck in completing this daunting beast of a tribute. Cheers!
  8. Just committed the cardinal sin of remixing popular VGM by making this hybrid HipHop/EDM remix of Go Straight from Streets of Rage 2, to celebrate the release of SoR4. https://soundcloud.com/djmokram/knuckleduster Though I know this isn't admissible on OCR due to liberal use of in-game sfx, I'd still love to get some feedback for the arrangement, cause one ear can only take me so far.
  9. Been trying to get back into remixing for the past 5 years, while dodging massive curveballs and being forced into several hard-resets. But I'm not giving up, and carry on my mission to humbly celebrate under-appreciated VGM in whatever capacity life allows. Cheers. :)
  10. Ditto. Thanks to BOTH of you for taking the time to arrange the song. Your mixes made my day.
  11. Poll is a bit random. My suggestion was simply to look at what worked in the case of OCR compos when it comes to drawing contestants/voters, and apply some of that magic to your compo. Again, the formula of the PRC is fine and doesn't need to go through an existential crisis. Remixing a game instead of one specific source would make voting unmanageable imo. The source-selection skip/switch system suggested by Overkillius sounds pretty good to me. Having more than one option to submit a song is great, but allowing folks to vote here might do some good too. Most importantly, if you want more people entering the compo don't forget to talk about PRC outside of this thread. Ultimately, the goal is to find ways to up participation and minimize "XX days extension" and "winner by default" scenarios as much as possible. The Metal Gear, Front Mission and Ace Combat series feature some of my fav VGM out there. Excellent, yet criminally under-remixed soundtracks really. Were you by chance talking about the One Hour Compo? Got started with this in 09 and indeed it was great to meet for this weekly, fun little exercise, talking music with people in irc, the sense of urgency to complete a song in time and then listening to everyone's entries live at the end. Not sure the logistics of it would translate well to PRC though, with the time zone differences and small number of contestants/entries. Could be worth looking into... That's what the MIDI file is here for. Unless of course you prefer to translate the source by ear. Sadly I won't have time to submit a bonus entry this round, but I'll be sure to vote.
  12. Woah, wasn't expecting to win this. Great turnout this round y'all. Thanks for the feedback too. Sorry for the late reply @Bundeslang. Gimme a minute to find a source and send you a PM.
  13. Oh, snap! Didn't notice the extension. Been wanting to remix Easton Kingdom for aeons. Lemme see if I can cook up something awful in 3 hours. To clarify, I never meant to imply changing the compo to arrange super popular and overmixed songs. I was just using OCR as an example of success within the compo context. PRC must remain true to its goals and if you know me at all, then you know that arranging music from lesser-known games is my raison d'être as well. Amen to that, brother. PRC and OHC have done so much for me back when I joined the community. It's one of the best way for newcomers to get their feet wet with remixing or for old timers to jump right back in after a long break. Compos are always a fun challenge and a great place to share, learn and grow as an artist whilst having a good time.
