  1. First time attending & first time volunteering. I'll be helping out with MIVS, Chipspace, & the arcade. Just figured out a room! Hoping to smash some arrows if anyone brings a Dance Dance Revolution / In The Groove cab! ^____________^
  2. I think I might be out of this round. I just remembered this like yesterday and I'm going to be out of town this weekend (which is when my procrastinating motivation to finish stuff super fast usually kicks in).
  3. Subbed! FYI, I managed to find a MIDI for the Breath of Fire track on VGMusic. It's listed as Drogan. There's no way I would have had anything close to what I submitted without it!
  4. I keep forgetting about this competition. I'm sitting down to start my entry right now. We'll see how far I get but I will definitely have something submitted. Probably gonna be super abstract.
  5. Thanks for the extension! Some pretty big life stuff took me by surprise last week but I'm in a good spot now. Same as before, I'll notate what I can and see what I can get in.
  6. Is there an alternate title for Dying Village? I'm not finding that particular track listed under Breath of Fire. I can notate just the lead again if need be.
  7. I am so overdue for ear training. I did manage to use the parametric EQ in FL as a crutch to partially notate Wings of Hope but I don't think I have time to finish this notation job with my current skill set and time constraints. That being said, I'll do the best I can on my entry with what I've got.
  8. You were perfectly clear enough. In my case, I had an overly-broad definition of RPG. Just because something has a few RPG elements doesn't mean it is an RPG and I did not really realize that before. Thanks for your patience. Here's my new list. I'm going Hero now. [“Chrono Trigger” - “Ayla” and “Ayla's Theme” - “Hero”] [“Chrono Trigger” - “Robo” and “Robo's Theme” - “Hero”] [“Chrono Trigger” - “Lucca” and “Lucca's Theme” - “Hero”]
  9. *throws hat into the ring / arena / whatever the hell you want to call it* It's been a while since my last competition. I still feel like I have a long way to go with my music skills and I honestly won't be surprised if I get eliminated in the first round BUT I still want to give it a shot. EDIT : Apparently I have a tendency to lump any game with even a few RPG elements into the RPG genre. I appreciate FenixDown's patience. My current first choice is Ayla's theme but I'm planning on making a new list of just hero characters. [“Chrono Trigger” - “Ayla” and “Ayla's Theme” - “Hero”] -
  10. My username used to be chroxic. I changed it sometime after my last PRC entry clear back in 2012 (222). This week is the first time I've been on OCR in a while.
  11. As promised, my remix is up. Super rough with only four hours of work, but it's something.
  12. The last PRC I participated in was back in 2012. It may be a freakishly rough remix, but I'll get something in!
  13. Slowly working on a Twitch streaming schedule. Hoping to have something stable going sometime in May!

  14. I took a website design class in high school. We were required to make an email for the class. In my inifinite 16 year old wisdom, my thought process went something like this: "Hmm...I like pasta...I really like alfredo...hmm...alfredofreak!". Probably spent about five minutes total on the name, but I lucked out with how unique it is. That being said, I certainly wish my real name (NIcholas Day) was unique enough that I could just use it.
  15. Thank you Nutritious! I've been wondering how to stream with ASIO. I've recently started streaming as well: twitch.tv/alfredofreak/ Only a little bit of gaming so far, but I'm also planning on streaming remix production (particularly for OCR remix comps), sound design, original music, and maybe mashups (although they tend to get muted). I'm planning on coming up with a semi-regular streaming schedule sometime in the next few weeks. (Semester is wrapping up) My connection is horrendous for now (about 850 kbps up), but my streams are fairly stable. I do plan on upgrading to a sane connection capable of handling HD sometime in the next few months.
  16. Sorry about the delay! I The end of spring semester was NUTS.

    I am not related to them as far as I know.

    What's the best way to contact you? I'd like to to chat with you more about audio stuff, preferably on Facebook. If you search for alfredofreak on Facebook or Twitter, you'll find me pretty easily!

  17. Hi! Nice to see someone else on OCR living in Utah :]

  18. Both FMOD and Wwise have versions available to download for free if you want to start heading down that route. The School of Video Game Audio (run by Leonard J. Paul, aka FreakyDNA on the Retro City Rampage soundtrack) has two-month classes running year-round that consist almost entirely of you making a demo reel using one of those programs. You basically get instant sound design portfolio material.
  19. Interesting article from Curbed LA: http://la.curbed.com/archives/2014/03/inside_the_underground_world_of_las_home_recording_studios.php Is zoning is only an issue if you have a commercial studio then? What exactly constitutes a commercial studio? Are you in the clear if you just have a one-man production based out of your house? Are there issues if you have a buddy come over and collaborate on an album you're both going to make money from? This is something my inexperienced self has honestly never heard about before.
  20. It's all good. I moved here from Oregon in 7th grade and I'll probably be moving for a job when I graduate anyway. What style / genres do you like to make?

  21. Hey, nice to see a fellow Utahn on the OCR map! Have you started work on any remixes or participated in any compos?
