ASK A JUDGE: While we're busy NOT voting - your questions, we want 'em

Recommended Posts

In regards to project mixes that are subbed to the panel... I subbed my mix from Temporal Duality, but right before the album release, Matt asked me to revise the mixing/mastering on it a tad (which I did), so now the album version of the track actually sounds a wee bit better than the version I submitted to the judges panel... any chance I can slip you the newer version? (or you guys can just listen to the one from the album)

^This, sorta.

Subbed mine probably about 2 to 3 weeks ago ("Timekeeper"), and I'm not expecting it to show up for a while but thought I'd bump it.

We'll be using the album versions for those, no worries.

Put your gun back in the holster, judgen00b. :tomatoface:

They're saying "I subbed a mix that was on a project, but the album version was improved after I submitted. Can you make sure not to use the old version?"

Yes, we can do that. Second tomato. :tomatoface:

It's awesome that you're up to May.

Man, I don't even have another song in there until late June. Had a bit of a slump. So good luck catching up, at least until late June it should be smooth sailing. :-P

Hoping to finish FF2 and send that to you the week after MAGFest ends. It's been done for a while........ just need to do final perfectionist things.

:/ Nobody else is posting. I got a question though. You can delete the last couple posts.

Are the sea shanties /

from Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag remixable for OCR? I can't find info on who wrote them.

If they were written for the game first, then they're eligible, same as anything else. According to the Wiki page, the shanties were composed by "various artists"...

http://www.amazon.com/Assassins-Creed-Edition-Original-Soundtrack/dp/B00GATDL7O/

... but it appears as though a lot of these are arrangements. I would Google search the themes you're interested in and see if other artists/groups have covered those same themes prior to AC4's release. If so, then you know they are just public domain pieces, not unique to AC4 (and thus not eligible.)

How about a "Direct Post" thread, so people can see if their mixes were directly accepted?

We send emails directly to the remixers when we mark something as DP, so they are aware. We prefer to keep DPs more of a surprise.

I thought so, as I got such a mail, and surprises are fun. :) Thanks for the answer.

I live to give.

Your givings are well received, good sir :-)

Was totally hoping it wouldn't hit 1 month, especially after getting 2 new joojes. Totes makes you guys look bad. I mean even if it's just superficial updating, best to make it not look like it sits untouched for an entire month. :-D

Thank you!

It looks like it went forward a month too, unless I'm mistaken (June 1st to July 1st) Very good work :nicework:

I naturally assumed the newbie judges became lazy like the old ones. :-P You have to bring in more new judges than old timers, otherwise it just spreads to the newbies. That's just science.

I dunno, introducing a small amount of something to battle a large virus (like say taking cold medicine or something) totally works -- the newbie judges, as you put it, could totally rejuvenate the others rather than becoming old and tired themselves, but it would be a hard fight. It's definitely possible though.

*ahem*

The newbie judges became judges on Dec 13th and judged like crazy fools right up through Christmas and to New Years, at which time we both (in fact, MOST of the judges) went to MAGFest. After that, many of the judges including myself became amazingly SICK and have been doing their best to recover and get back to the voting bizzz. I did seven tracks yesterday.

[/defensive rant] :-P
