    Compo: MnP (Meat 'n Potatoes)
    Important Notice: I’m vacating for 2 weeks, so I don’t have the option to export MIDI on my IPhone. I have the MIDI for this at home, which I stupidly forgot to bring with me, so I cannot upload a MIDI for this, since I make my own. To compensate for this I’m adding an extra week to the deadline, making this 5 weeks, so what you see in the deadline is correct. When I get home I will add the MIDI for this source, which will be in about 8 days. Sorry for the inconvenience!
    Congratulations to TheVideoGamer (Me) for winning the last round! As a result, I get to choose this month's MnP source! Here's what I have to say about my pick: 
    ""I did promise a whole host of Ape Escape sources on the off chance I would win. I decided to move on to the third game in the series just so it doesn’t get neglected as this too has a incredible score (No hate to the 2nd game, but personally it sounds a little too MIDI ‘sound-fonty’ for my liking) This one also goes by the name of Monkeypiece Theater, Monkey Forest’ However ‘Hide n Seek Forest is more easier to remember. This is the 2nd main stage in the game, ignoring the mini games, and is honestly just a very vibrant piece. I don’t know how to exactly describe it other than, Folky DnB? It’s got a good ol’ Yodel, a harmonica and an accordion, as well as a dynamic French Horn like melody, all seasoned with some extremely thick synth basslines, and a whole host of breakbeats. It’s sounds like a whole host of fun, no different to any of the Sonic Team’s ost (Even though it’s completely different). The first game sounds very much like 90s Jungle, like it screams PS1 jungle. In this case not only does it sound more modern, but the instrumentation is more traditional as well. Like representative of the time period. I’ve talked way too much, hope you do this awesome piece justice!”- Me
    GAME: Ape Escape 3 (PS2)
    SOURCE: Hide n Seek Forest

    MISSION STATEMENT
    The goal of Compo:MnP is to promote that "meat and potatoes" conservative approach to remixing: this includes the mood and composition of source tunes. It is up to the remixer to create their own personalization, or to simply give it a sound upgrade. Moreover, the compo is a great opportunity to hone your remixing skills and give video game music the respect that is due. SOME reinterpretation is recommended, but not required.
    MnP Instructions/Guidelines
    Rules for Picking a Source:
    All video game sources are limited to the 6th generation of video game consoles and earlier. This was due to community consensus, where people preferred to remix more retro games, than newer games. 6th generation includes: GameCube, Xbox, PS2 and Dreamcast.  I'm now restricting big name franchises (Such as Zelda and Mega-Man) to one source per year. This is to encourage more obscure games, that not many people will know about to be picked.  Make sure you provide me both a video and a MIDI of the source in question.  Note: This is subject to change. Also keep an eye out, if any special rounds come into fruition.
    Guidelines:
    Modifying the Source is fine, so long as it doesn't sound completely separate from its original intent.  If you're gonna do a genre change, at least make sure the original aspect of the source is not lost. Tempo changes are fine, as long as it's not a big change. I'm talking like, going from 80bpm to 140bpm.  Submissions must be at a maximum of 20mb (keeping in step with ThaSauce's file size max), and submitted as a MP3 file. Only 1 entry per participant. Previous winner cannot participate but can submit a BONUS entry.  Try to avoid making quality-based comments on submissions until after the Round is concluded.  It is to avoid a Bias in Votes. MISC/TIPS
    - When picking a source tune, make sure it has a MIDI to make people's lives easier.
    - In-game sound FX are permitted, so long as they don't comprise the whole track (i.e. replacing entire MIDI tracks with just sfx)

    Update: Ok so I’m gonna make the round, but it will have no MIDI. When I return from my holiday (Which is about 8 days) I will add the MIDI. To compensate for this, I will give you a 5 week deadline instead of 4. Thanks for your patience!

    In a landslide 1st place with 15 points: TheVideoGamer And the last place hero with 9 points: Hleet The only remaining entry is Souperion’s Bonus, so the remaining positions are inapplicable. I will send a source pick for Round 135 I hopefully for next week (Roughly the 21st of August).
    Congrats to everyone who participated, you peeps did great! 
    Comments:
    Wow looks like I won by a landslide. I’m sorry Hleet. Now this is going to be a challenge, as I’m vacating for 2 weeks, and MIDI rendering is not really possible on IPhone. So the last resort would be to use a ready made MIDI from VGmusic. Oh well, I’ll assess it in the upcoming days. I actually had a MIDI ready, but I forgot to transfer it from computer to mobile lol. So this is going to be quite the challenge. Anyways enough ramble, congrats everyone!

    You know, when this got started I never imagined that this project would continue on for so long. I thought it would go for a year or two and then folks would lose interest. And that would've been okay, because I knew someone else would've picked up the torch and kept it going, or started a different project around the same themes. But sixteen years is a long time. I was 25-years-old when this project started. That it's still going now that I'm 41, and with so many folks still contributing year after year, it's really a special thing here. Even though I only build the page for each new volume, I'm still proud of the work being done by everyone, especially The Coop, who keeps it all going and manages to write his own songs each year.
    So, I want to thank each and every one of you. Seeing this continue, sixteen years and counting, speaks to the power of the music and to the community.
    Thank you for keeping this going, every single one of you.

    @TVG : thanks for your advice concerning the drum part. You are right, I should have used an electro set instead for this genre.
    Okay, let's pick the next (next) source ;D

    Congrats Hleet, looks like i forgot to vote lol. Then again there was only really 2 entries. so....
    Feedback time!
    Hleet - I like the use of the pads here, it still retains that moodiness of the original, even with how bright the sounds are. I'm a big fan of the bassline here, very juicy. The melody is also really great, captures the space-like feel and it's great. Drums however i wasn't a fan. Too acoustic for an electronic genre. They get in the way almost. If you have more of a electro set, then this could improve it immensely. The mix is top notch here, very great quality, and everything is blended nicely. The synth choices were actually great, best part for sure. It's just the drums i'm not feeling. Everything else is lovely though, awesome job on the arrangement! Well done!
    Souperion - Nice job taking it slower. You've almost made it ambient rather than DnB like. Even though it's 2 chords, the original is very dreamy, opting for a lot of spaced out notes, so it really makes you feel like you're in space. In this one you kind of modified the chords in a way, that makes it Star Wars/Space Opera like, and i think that's a lovely idea. You're almost moving it into a different territory in itself. Big fan of the piano embellishments in this one. The mix is also really good, no muddiness here. You say you didn't have time, but it sounds to me like a lot of work was put in this. Now you did take away the drums, which is fine but can leave things a little empty in parts. But that's not the big problem for me. I don't know if i've just been accustomed to it, but the chords in the original were just what made the piece for me. Your remix changes the chords, loosing a bit of the dreaminess. It's not bad, just not my cup of tea. It rubs alongside the source in a odd way. But that still doesn't make the piece bad, as there were a lot of awesome moments in this. You did an awesome job on the arrangement! Well done!

    It's results time
    TheVideoGamer entered a bonus song.
    Souperion got 5 points and gets the last place wooden spoon.
    And the winner of PRC451 is Hleet with 6 points.
    Hleet, you are the winner again. You may pick a source for PRC453. 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 source as fast as you can, but before next Wednesday (10 August 2022), 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):
