    PRC378 - Music Is More Than Words (Breath of Fire II)

    "Bundeslang must enter himself instead of letting HoboKa save the contest each time." By the way my vote included "I want easy sources as well, please scrap the rule that sources with OC Remixes aren't allowed," but it's not about wanting easy sources so much as wanting inspiring sources.

    PRC377- The Silent of No Songs (Silent Hill 2)

    I liked em both. Hoboka did a nice job with the 8 bit piano part and the additions, while evktalo changed the beat and the vibe nicely. Also it's nice to see another Renoise user around. Is that the space piano instrument I hear?

    MnP 95: Circle of the Moon - Clockwork Tower

    Surprising, I figured there would be more takers on this one.

    PRC377- The Silent of No Songs (Silent Hill 2)

    Yeah it's nice...and has good remix potential!

    PRC376 - Fantasy of Feeling (Final Fantasy V)

    I can't speak for others, but for me having the longer remixing period would be very helpful. It's always been odd to me that PRC, which I find more demanding than MNP, also has a shorter deadline. Also, with PRC being as old as it is, its restriction on song choice (no songs done before on PRC, and no songs that have a remix at OCR) might be causing song selections that aren't so inspiring. I know I've had trouble finding songs meeting this rule. Maybe amending the rule by adding something like "no songs used for PRC or having a single-source OCR remix posted within the last 4 years" would help. It depends how badly you desire more variety.

    MnP 93: Zelda (Nes) - Labyrinth/Dungeon

    Yeah Zorrakh's mix was very good but was also very close to the BOTW version of the tune. In my mind it would be mnp if that were the source, but not for this. A couple of people commented on the production on my piece, which was actually very simple. It was just Superior Drummer (with very static midi values to make it sound more electronic) and then a bunch of Hybrid 3 presets that blended decently to my ear. Very little EQ or saturation otherwise. Oh, and a little bit of chipsounds and electric guitar. Production-wise it was probably the easiest mix I've ever done.

  10. By the way, no set of monitors is going to sound crystal clear unless you treat your room. sonarworks might help in an untreated room but it will add some coloration (as all eq's do-either transient smearing or pre-ringing) and it can't do anything about standing waves.
  11. For #1, lower your volume fader so that you don't get clipping, then automate the volume to be louder during the quiet parts. It's amazing how much a little automation can fix things that would otherwise be impossible or take hours of tweaking plugin parameters.
  12. The jbl 305 and 308 also sound like toys next to the a7x, based on a different listening experience of mine. I have not had the chance to demo the jbl's against the t5v's.

  14. I had a chance to demo the Adam A7x's next to the new T7V's about a week ago. The T7V's sounded like toys by comparison. Even more to their detriment, the T7V's are rear-ported as compared to the front-ported A7x's.

    That was actually my inspiration for this pick
