  1. This month is Snow & Ice! Any music that is unique to a snow or ice level/stage is fair for the mixin'. Unique being that if it plays elsewhere (like the New Super Mario Bros. Wii stage music), it doesn't count. Gotta be exclusive yo! The bonus is a live instrument! Making this one really easy this month, especially because the definition is ANYTHING THAT ISN'T SEQUENCED. Therefore, beatbox, banging on a table; as long as the sound is recorded and not sequenced, it'll count! As always, just make sure you point it out so I don't overlook it by mistake... And we have an XO's Challeng
  2. Cheers to accomplishing this! Hopefully this will make it not too much of a risk for C418 and Danny B also notice how I don't have an account and only click on picture links...
  3. I made it RAAAIIIIIINNNNNNNNN on you bitches. Time to pimp this!
  5. Ugh, how am I supposed to get anything passed now? Congrats dude
  6. This month, our theme is non-motorized sports! So put away your ExciteBikes and Wave Racers and grab a pigskin or golf club, and get ready to remix! The bonus this month is Jokes! If you include the telling of a joke in your mix, you'll get the bonus points. Obviously, it's preferable if you were the one doing the telling, but if you're microphone shy, a sample will do.
  7. This is more about how he opened up gaming to a large mass of people, more than the DS did, and how 'his' platform made it possible for business men and middle-aged women to fling colored birds on their phone while they wait on the bus, rather than him actually having any part in creating a game. Unless you wanna talk about Breakout, and his lack of involvement there as well!
  8. yesssssssssssssssss; vent my frustrations on my opponent with my club when I miss a birdie! Also, according to this: http://ir.take2games.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=86428&p=irol-newsArticle&ID=1625672&highlight= It appears the game may not be all of San Andreas, but just Los Santos and surrounding country-side. As I stated before, I haven't played San Andreas, so what's everyone else's opinion on this news?
  9. So Emu did the artwork, huh? Very nice! oh yeah and the album was okay. i guess
  10. When it comes to the loveliness of the sandbox, I enjoy GTA for its narrative and settings, although I do agree that GTAIV was a departure from the colorful wacky fun that was the III era. I enjoy Saints Row for its more accurate representation of what most people enjoy about sandbox games, which is to dick around like nobody's business, except now they'd actually made that your business so everybody wins! That said, I'm eager to see how dogs, added car functions like convertibles, the foreclosure of homes (return of property purchasing?), and the sheer size of that goddamn mountain will ble
  11. The mixes for this month have been posted! Check 'em here: http://sites.google.com/site/xenonodyssey/olrmageddon
  12. This is fantastic; the arrangement definitely 'screams' Debussy and Ravel but has enough charater to hold its own. My only criticism is that it's a little on the short side, but considering the level of skill it takes to play something of this calibur, I have no right to complain, let alone bring it up. I sincerely hope we get to hear more from you, Mr. Nano!
  13. Absolutely awesome! Now if you can work your way up the ranks, we can get some wintery VGM from this Sans-Triberian Dorkestra...
  14. Well since you asked... All that crackling you have throughout the track? That's called clipping, and to quote Sonic, that's NO GOOD. If you're using FL Studio, open up Fruity Limiter and lower the ceiling to 0dB so you don't go over (going over makes the clipping happen). The intro sounds weird because you have just your mallet/keyboard instrument playing and nothing else, so the half step notes you have sound clashing, not to mention the reverb exaggerates the effect. Your choice of instruments is decent, but the parts for them are do not compliment them at all. You have the slow-attac
  15. This month brings us the theme of Castlevania! Basically, any game in the beloved series is eligible for remixing, from the heralded original to the puzzle game on the iPhone. Our bonus this month is Oktoberfest! If your mix is in the style of a polka, and/or features sounds of drunk people, mug clanking, or general festivity, you'll receive the extra two points on your mix.
  16. part at :38 didn't seem too loud to me (I've got monitoring headphones but bad ears ) but otherwise sweeeeeeeeeetttttttttttt. I look forward to seeing what the rest will be/what other things you have in store for this 'forbidden remix'
  17. The songs have been posted for this month! They can be found here: http://sites.google.com/site/xenonodyssey/olrmageddon Vote or die!
  18. sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet I used Reason to make Oily Robot Lovin' for zircon's contest last year, and since I've gotten my new rig I've mostly used FL Studio, but knowing that Reason is now 64-bit I'll definitely be grabbing it when I have the cash. I can't do much rewiring now anyhow since I have Reason 4 on my Mac
  19. As far as I know, Reason can't record (Propellerhead has the whole Record thing for that), so if that's something that has importance to you, then FL Studio might be the better pick. That said, I've used both Reason and FL Studio, and like C7 said, Reason got the synths but the 'workflow' can be a bit bothersome if your screen isn't big enough, whereas FL works better with having multiple ways to getting everything accomplished but some if not most of the presents can't really be developed past their defaults. Rewiring the two (or using Reason through FL Studio) would be the ultimate fix to
  20. Yeah; pros of the Classical era? Like ambinate said, exposition, development, recapitulation. Pros of the pop music genre? Intro, verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, chorus x2. That's my advice was more geared towards the compositional approach, since that's broad enough to cover all genres since you didn't really specify if you were talking about orchestral or phat beatz.
