    I know this is on hiatus, but it's also almost been a year since the last post. has there been any news that spurred up for this by any chance?

    all right, I submitted my wip since you guys still wanted it. It's not much but it was the only idea that went as far as it did. sorry for the letdown.

    Mega Man: The Grand Robot Master Remix Battle 2018

    sorry for the disappointment, but I think i gotta forfeit on this one. Came into this hoping I would get out of my funk and I just never did, I restarted so many times and I just didn't like any of my attempts... I have just been creatively shocked for this year so far, even just attempting to make some original tracks never goes longer than a minute. Think I just lost all my motivation or something, honestly don't know what to do anymore to get fully back on the creative saddle..

    Mega Man: The Grand Robot Master Remix Battle 2018

    came up with some decent ideas but they're for there individual tracks, trying to combine them and not sound forced. I'm pretty sure this is common for everyone tho, the grind continues.

    Too many projects in general

    After reading it I came into a couple of realizations when I was reflecting on myself. I don't think It wast a "high" thing whenever I would go get a fix of doing a project, for me It was more about just being a part of something. I'm just so used to doing shit solo that I jump the gun whenever the opportunity rises to meet new people. Hell that would explain my sudden urge to join 6 different community albums here in one day when I first came across this site even before I gained way more confidence in making music. on the other points you made. I have noticed that working on a track in those batch bursts does make you realize what's missing or what's wrong with the track, so this definitely solidifies that I should be doing that more often. Also as far as feeling what that satisfaction of having something completed is, for me that would have to be Remixer of the year for PRC a few years back that bundeslang hosts. I don't have a remix posted yet but that's always the next goal, but I know it's definitely achievable because of how much I have grown in just the 2-3 years I have came across this site. Just got to keep up the grind and push myself. Thx for the advice. It will probably still be a cool minute for me to get out of this rust but at least I know more about it that I can start trying to fix certain things/situations one problem at a time, instead of the tradition of just relying on luck to get past or to get something done.

    Too many projects in general

    I probably have a dumb question, but How do you guys stay in track in a project regardless if it has deadlines or whether if you're even getting paid for it? I seem to always find myself totally motivated to always start a new project (especially if other people are involved) but than just start struggling to just get somewhere competently, let alone actually finishing it. Where do you guys find the motivation to keep the project going, to keep days,weeks,months, and possibly years of work from going under. Or having to come to the ultimate decision of just dropping the project all together due to very little progress or little to no more motivation to keep it alive. I ask all of this because I feel like this is just all I do now. No matter how motivated I am at the beginning, all I seem to do is just repeat this never ending cycle of just never completing a project. So now this has been happening for almost a decade for me and now I can't shake off this feeling if whether or not I'm even competent or capable enough to take on (or to be apart of) a real project where the responsibilities were to be pointing in my directions. I guess an easy example from me currently is that I always wanted to work on my own Solo song album but treat it like it's going to be made for an old school JRPG, So of course I was excited to jump on it. fast forward a year or 2 later and I have 23 tracks so far, but only 5-6 of them even come close to a substantial wip AND are longer than a minute... Along with starting another 2-3 separate projects... and this is just recent shit, and just audio projects.

    Steam Sale - What's Your Damage?

    Some of the reviews on the steam page are pretty spot on. It's just shy of how a megaman game truly feels and would often remind you of how an old flash game from newgrounds would feel, but it still totally works out fine. making a megaman style game and mixing it with "rouge-like" gameplay is actually pretty amazing idea. Imagine the multiple sets of different armors from mmx5 that you can choose, but instead having the power to be able to mix and match between those sets. Boots from "this armor", hands from "that armor", etc... It encourages exploration to be able to find and combine certain abilities, making you practically an unkillable machine once you start to get things going. It's clear that the story was like the third or fourth priority in this game since there really isn't any, as most of the development was put into the gameplay. The music is pretty catchy on there own but I feel it doesn't separate itself too far from each other or to match the theme of the stage; like a typical fire stage would be fast and chaotic while a water/ice stage would be slow and calm, small stuff like that. I would go on, but I don't know if continuing would spoil anything for you so I'll stop here. if you want me to continue, then just say so.

    just grabbed 20XX surpisingly. I need my megaman fix dam it. lol
  13. pfft I wish my band director was strict. My band class was pretty terrible in high school. Bunch of students that just took the class and saw it as free time; totally distracting and disrupting band practices with constant immaturity and negligence for simple instrunctions. we would hardly practice anything cuz of the same few people that went out of there way to do the exact opposite of what our instructor said. There was plenty of times that I confronted them but that was all I could've done since the school was strict towards inter-district students, and me going "out of Line" would essentially result in expulsion. Only good days were whenever those students skipped class and we would actually be able to practice properly or learn other composers and there styles, definitely wish there were plenty more of those days.
  14. Pretty much as the Title states. I got into Spotify like a few months ago and I noticed that there aren't that many soundtracks from video games on there list, OST's and remixes alike are pretty barren there. I know that there's a created playlist made by Tagifras in there but that's mostly because he's paying the subscription to upload his own tracks to make it available for everyone else to enjoy. So what I guess I'm trying to say is, will there be Official album releases for Spotify soon? The closest thing for multiple releases of remixed albums are from GameChops, but even then it doesn't feel like it's there entire library. A good example is going to the artists Page and finding out there page hasn't really been up to date or doesn't have there other albums they were apart of missing from there own page. is it a spotify problem? or do the artist's not have full control of what is available since these albums are a collaborative effort with multiple people?

    MnP sexy 69: FF4 - Theme of Love

    it is true that it's entirely based on opinion on what is considered to be the victor, but that's what I like about MnP honestly. You're not supposed to worry about changing things up (that's what PRC is for), it's about who can portray the same emotion better whether it's within there own style or not. I can understand if people think its bland to just follow the original track and midi but that's what this compo is. Personally, I use MnP as the testing grounds to either create original sounds or combine multiple layers of sounds ( that I don't normally use) to form them as one. For example in the first 30 seconds of my piece, Only 2 instruments are playing in the midi but I'm actually using 4 instruments (not including effects). If I'm not doing this method mentioned earlier than I'm practicing to play this live on my midi piano or by simply training my ear to remake the song and try to only use the midi file as a fail safe. if I'm just getting a lot of notes wrong ( which is more often than not) then I'll just bite the bullet and use the midi. I feel like the whole point of this compo is to find better ways to improve yourself without the need of sweating things out or the need to be a try hard, At least that's how I see it. Like its not that big of a deal if you win or lose or even if you felt like you got robbed, I don't see things that way. I only see what needs or should've been improved on if such situations were to occur.
