    voted.  That was one of the tougher votes.  Nevertheless, it's worth the effort when I score a 5 entry round Thanks guys!

    Sorry, I haven't been able to get around to it. I was going to try to do orchestral techno. Good idea? Bad idea? I don't know, but it sounded interesting in my head!

    I want to do something for this but I haven't had time. I might still be able to get it in, but who knows.
    One thing that might be contributing to the slump is how close the mnp and prc deadlines have been lately. Just speaking personally, I often put things off until the last week (or last minute), which leaves me no chance of being able to do both compos.

    Results time
    HoboKa and Trism got 6 points and both end up with the last place wooden spoon
    PlanarianHugger got 7 points and the third place.
    Dex was close to win, but 11 points is only enough to get the second place.
    And the winner of PRC403 is TheVideoGamer with 12 points!!.
    TheVideoGamer, you are the winner and may pick a source for PRC405. Send the source to me (with a MID/MP3 file, otherwise send a second source with a MID file) by PM, other options are PM me @ ThaSauce or by e-mailing to bambombim@gmail.com (I prefer a PM @Ocremix). Send your sources as fast as you can, but before next Wednesday (26 February 2020), 11:00 AM ThaSauce time (18:00 UTC, 19:00 GMT).
    You may select any source from any game, but not a source with an OverClocked remix or a source which has been used in PRC before. An overview of the past PRC's can be found in the following links (I recently updated this site):

    That's why I copy and paste from a text file on my computer! Can't always trust that thasauce won't just eat your submission .
    I bet you remember most of what you said though.

    Depends on the console, and the track itself.
    If it's something like NES or Sega Genesis, i can separate it into different channels, and work one by one.
    If it's a very simple stripped down track, i can pin point things quickly and do it straight away.
    If it's more textually rich, or there is a lot of ambiguities in the pitch and the rhythm, it takes me a lot longer, in some cases like more than a week's work. That is, actually working on it, so not things like real life work, where i don't have time to spend on it. What i mean by that is, out of a week, i might only spend 2 days working on it. That kind of thing.
    The hardest MIDI i had to sequence for PRC was probably the Batman and Robin source for 394. Only because the panning was super difficult to integrate to MIDI. My PRC400 entry was also a pain, because there was a lot of heavy textures, meaning i had to spend a day or 2, just isolating that particular instrument, bearing in mind this is all by ear. I couldn't separate it into channels like the NES or Sega Genesis can. This was mainly down to the sounds themselves, as the pitches weren't very clear. Still had a lot of fun though, i love the Sonic Unleashed OST, one of my all time favourites.
    The hardest for MnP is the Sonic Lost World source for 104, but only because it took the longest, it was still fairly reasonable to work with.
    I've said a lot, but hopefully it answers your question...

    How do you do it? Is it all by ear?

    I mean if it gets enough supports and an album does suffice I’d be happy to MIDIfy the entire OST. Takes me no time at all.

    It's a pretty nice kit with only minor cosmetic damage. I don't have a recording space or any microphones, though, so it's strictly a "live only" kit. Even just buying the microphones necessary to record it would cost more than getting a whole electronic kit, I think.

    Yes, I've thought about getting V-drums or something similar, but I don't have the room or the budget for them right now. I have an acoustic kit that I'm considering selling to replace with electronic drums, but I'm kind of hesitant about it. 
    I've demoed electronic drum kits for years and they've only recently gotten to the point where they can reliably pick up every note I play, from fast loud rolls to the softest of ghost note rolls. The cheapest kit I've found that can register every note is the Alesis Crimsonkit 2 ($1200 retail), but if I really wanted to go electronic I'd probably spring for an upgrade to something higher-tier.

    They *are* velocity sensitive. They just do a poor job. I have to hit them harder than I’d like to trigger them at all, and if I hit them just a bit harder than that I’m maxing them out. Consistent hits seem to register anywhere in the 90-120 range with little rhyme or reason. Again, all of the akai finger pads I’ve tried are like this.
    I’ll tell you what has good pads, at least for my tapping style, and that’s the m-audio code keyboards. I don’t have one (and I’ve read a lot about build quality/longevity issues with them), but I got to demo one once for a couple of hours and it was heavenly.
