"I was going to pick a brighter source theme like lonely rolling star or rainbow road as a nice change of pace from a depressing theme like radical dreamers, but hey, you can never go wrong with Super freaking Metroid"

Starts: 09/03/2014

Ends: Friday 21/03/2014 @ 2PM

Vote Ends: Sunday 23/03/2014 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

This should yield some creative mixes. I can't imagine people having much fun just changing the sounds. Infinite ways to personalise this tune.

I got a pretty good idea on what i might be doing with it.

Considering the deadline in the post, it seems like your siggy is ending early. I may be interested in this one.

Fixed. Thanks for pointing that Kenta.

EDIT

Nvm I need to totally revise the due date. It still ends too early.

EDIT 2

K now it's fixed.

Thinking the same thing.

This is quite the haunting tune, and seems like it'd be quite a fun challenge for me personally.

If I didn't have two separate deadlines this week alone at school I'd definitely jump all over this.

Finally started something! Though it'll be a relatively lazy one.

Loops are fun.

edit: ok, less lazy than originally intended.

Deadline in 16 hours...my sig still seems to be defunct :puppyeyes:

So yeah, any remixers who want to hit the deadline gotta get it in there at 2PM (Pacific time) tomorrow. At least, I think it's Pacific, not totally sure with ThaSauce's TZ =/

Got 2 really awesome submissions insofar...it'd be cool to see more!

I don't know if you notified, but ThaSauce has used Daylight savings in the past weeks.

Anyway, there is not 10 hours and 56 minutes left (at the moment of posting this reply).

Welcome to the Voting Stage!

  • liquidwind has a vote that's worth 2x since he was last round's winner.
  • There are 2 contestants this round.
  • Participants who vote must keep the last 2 spots empty and non-participants the 3rd spot empty.
  • First place voting bonus still applies - so get voting darn-it!!
  • Do not vote for the bonus tracks.

**Remember: participants may not vote for themselves**

The * in red is a false statement. I misread the rules...with only 2 participants their votes and bonuses are actually void. But still, it's nice to see their comments :P

well, it doesn't help that ThaSauce sigs appear to be inoperable...

that, and I can't listen from my phone (which is when I last was in this thread). Give me a few minutes to vote.

EDIT: Voted. HoboKa, your bonus mix is terrifying.

Results

  • Nase got 1st place with 6 points
  • GrapplingHook got 2nd with 4 points

Nase, please pick the source tune for round 12

Sorry, I misread an important part of the PRC handbook. With only 2 contestants the voting bonuses are void for participants, as the round is awash. In this event, I would still encourage you to vote anyway, so that you can give feedback to your fellow participant. Again, I apologize for this little mishap and vow to set things straight from here on.
