  1. Yeah, I would classify it as an ensemble, or instrumentation. It's similiar to a big band in jazz: you've got your set instruments, and the specific genre (swing, funk, latin, etc.) is left blank for the artist to fill in. What they choose to do with the set of sounds is their choice. Rather than saying 'big band' is a genre, because you've got everything from Count Basie to Maria Schneider, and the difference between them is the difference between Koji Kondo and Sam when it comes to chiptunes.
  2. This is why my remix that won zircon's contest a couple of years ago didn't get posted; it wasn't true chiptune, but it adhered to the '3 channels + drums' format, thus making it not suitable for the site. Of course, it wasn't like I was expecting to win but I still feel bad all the same. Obviously, the solution to all of this is to create that 'OverTracked Chiptunes' site! Or I suppose VGMix would qualify too...
  3. It makes me sad that this website is set up like all of these different basketball program sites that my little brother is swindled into thinking will really help him 'enhance his jumps' and 'dunk like the pros,' and then beg my parents to purchase for him since he's far too lazy to, you know, actually practice like he needs to. But then again, if the demographic they are advertising to includes people who don't need to 'learn boring music theory' and care about become the next 'top-billin' Grammy winner, bangin' out fresh beats,' maybe this is the new job market: capitalizing on stupid peopl
  4. Well you are in luck! Because Tarrasque has added a bonus: if the two sources you pick are from two different generations, bonus points for you! By two different generations, we're talking an NES + Xbox, Genesis + PS2, etc. Also, if you travel to PC land, then you categorize by decade of release (which isn't that great but what else ya gonna do). SO GET MIXIN'!!
  5. So Brunzo was our (l)on(e)ly entry last month, but he allowed Tarrasque to write the theme this month, and this time it's Mash-Ups! Any two sources, and create either the most awesome thing since awesome, or the demon spawn of a musician's nightmare! THE CHOICE IS YOURS! And Tarrasque didn't give a bonus, so unless he does, there isn't one! No extra points this time!
  6. HertzDevil Interrobang Pie I'll be fresh...someday...
  7. So, did Urban Flow get permission from Ztrop to use his arrangement? Cuz that's pretty uncool to just take that midi, upgrade the sounds, and re-call it your own without any recognition if he didn't. You have to refresh the page after you click on the midi link to get it to play.

  9. http://ocremix.org/forums/showthread.php?t=31675 If you do managed to get a group together, I'd love to get my chart re-recorded, and I've had a couple of ideas in the past that I could probably come to fruition with for charts.I will say this: in the OverClocked Plaid Muffins, we have difficulties sometimes getting four horn parts recorded and in the right hands for mixing. I couldn't even imagine attempting to do that with 17 people. Plus, you'd have to make sure everyone's recording gear is up to snuff enough so it all sounds good when put together, which I imagine might be a mixing
  10. Enjoy the longest year of your life. just kidding i'm sure you'll be drunk soon enough
  11. Chaos Emerald bracket could involve the special stage musics somehow? or something; I dunno I want more mixes of S3&K special stage :I
  12. Multi-tier competitions are the new album/project. Twice the mixes in half the turn-around time! And sure, I'm interested. Why not.
  13. Doggtales is my new theme song.
  14. ProjectSpam was our winner last month, and he gives us the theme of over 18! Basically, any game that is over 18 years old is fair for remixing. For reference (and perspective for some), Super Metroid came out in March 1994, so that's not eligible to remix. However, Sonic the Hedgehog 3 came out in February 1994, so that is eligible! So rule of thumb, if it came out before Sonic 3, it's game. The bonus this time is POWAH BALLADS. Are you a bad enough dude to make a remix like Vigilante? Now would be the month to prove it!
  15. I believe because of the whole 'we lost the originals source code' excuse that the physics were modeled after Sonic Rush, which of course was nothing like the Genesis games. Of course the real question is, will it have lock-on technology with the first episode? Are they going to overhaul the first one to better fit the second one's engine? Are they going to bother releasing all of the episodes down the line to create the *actual* Sonic the Hedgehog 4? And of course, are they going to hire gecko as a composer since this cookie-cutter attempt at 'retro' is laughable at best. I mean, I woul
  16. WE GOT MIXES HOOOOOOOOO: http://sites.google.com/site/xenonodyssey/olrmageddon
  17. Wait, wouldn't have SOPA stopped sites like this? guys what have we done
  18. They've also got ProtoDome's stuff: http://www.legalsounds.com/search?pattern=protodome&WOSubmitAction=search
  19. Very nice orchestration; this theme is a little weird with not being really archored in a solid key, and your harmonizations throughout are interesting yet fit very well. Nice work!
  20. Since we don't have a feature on these forums, I like/endorse this post. Really the only thing radio and mainstream music has going for it these days are the massive budgets and social trends that they either cater or inflict upon the masses. That shit cray.
  21. This + horrible sax playing = all of my OLR mixes
