Ends: Thursday 06/03/2014 @ 2PM

Vote Ends: Thursday 08/03/2014 8PM

Submit your remix Here when completed.

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. A modicum of originality is recommended, but not required.

All competitors and voters must adhere to the rules stated within: Competition Code and Conduct *

MnP Instructions

1. Slight alterations of the source are encouraged, but not required.

2. Covers and Sound Upgrades are permitted.

3. Stay relatively close to the source's mood and notation. Refer to the example tracks for reference.

4. Any genre is acceptable, so long as you can still capture the source tune's mood and a good chunk of the notation.

5. Submissions must be at a maximum of 20mb (keeping in step with ThaSauce's file size max).

6. Only 1 entry per participant.

**I will state the voting rules at the voting stage, so as to keep the rule list here as small as possible. I'll also relax the rules on qualative statements about your own works, because frankly, it seems impossible to prevent it from happening anyways, but I would humbly suggest that you try to exercize some discretion about said comments on yours or other people's tracks.**

Example Tracks:

FF7_SonOfChaos,

SMW_Monstrous_Turtles,

Hitman_Contract_Cleaner,

MISC/TIPS

- When picking a source tune, make sure it has a MIDI to make ppl'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)

- Certain sad or moody source tunes don't have drums or percussion for a reason. So keeping it that way may be the easiest way to retain much of the original feel, such as

Yay the next round's here!

Edit: I don't know Japanese, so don't expect a vocal cover :-P

Beautiful source though, this may be quite the challenge.

I think I already have a bonus entry for this lying around somewhere :) great theme choice, definitely a song that invites something closer to a cover more than going nuts arranging it, it's already so perfect the way it is

Well since I failed to get a bonus mix for the last compo, I'm gonna get it done for this round. It probably helps that I'm more familiar with the game and source.

EDIT

Just posted my bonus mix. I forgot to mention in the description that 1:58 isn't an ending, but a 'transition' for a bigger segment, so yeah the rest isn't empty space lol.

How the hell are you supposed to do a conservative remix of a vocal song without using vox?? :lol:

Just make a very expressive instrumental version. So basically everything else is relatively the same but with a flute lead or something!

Eh, I'm burnt out from it already lol. I may return to it when I get some more shiny vst/sample libraries. But I'd be interested to see your mix lol. Maybe we'll have an unofficial vote after the main vote on who's track is better - 'course you already know what mine sounds like so it'd be easier to countermeasure it - no pun intended.

I did say that any genre is acceptable in the instructions list - it's moreso the notation and feel, not so much the actual instruments used. I sure as heck didn't use vocals for my bonus mix >:3

well, if Shadow Cyclone is Esperado's side account, then I'd say he's already posted his too. If not, then we're going to have three bonus mixes this round.

o.O 3 bonus entries?? (**if Esperado submits his**)

Hopefully we'll have enough votable tracks - then again it doesn't really matter as long as we get 1 non bonus track in there =D

EDIT

Also, I guess I was wrong about not wanting to do any more work on this bonus mix. I think I have an idea to improve upon it a bit...so I'll prob have an update coming in soon.

EDIT 2

NVM, my mix has that If it aint' broke, don't fix it feel to it. Any change I make just seems to ruin it 4 me, sooo I'm not gonna alter it for this compo, maybe someday down the road ><

Well, I had intended to submit something for this time around, and actually uploaded it yesterday, but I discovered today that somehow the subtle pitch correction I had set up became not-so-subtle because the plugin was receiving the wrong MIDI data. weirdly enough, it works just fine in my DAW, bu it just screws up on mixdown. I don't think I'll be able to get it figured out in time.

EDIT: Nope, it totally screwed up. DAW crash and everything, every time. Took me four hours of straight recording last night too, and now? Useless.

Good luck to those who actually could get a finished product out!

Ouch that's harsh. I've had my project files bung up on me like that too. So now I keep back-ups ;) - it's a good thing to practise. Well, hopefully we'll see you next round.

can you submit a bonus mix with the same account if you already got a regular one? or does "new entry" delete the previous one?

I think it is not possible to upload two tracks, you can put it somewhere else and post the download link here.
