"Let's give these remixers another shot at that 16-bit rock sound. I choose Stage 1-2 from Mega Turrican."

-DusK

Midi

Deadline: Jan 26 @ 10PM Mon

Vote Ends: Jan 29 @ 8PM Thurs

Submit your remix Here when completed.

**If you have technical difficulty with account activation at ThaSauce, please contact Ramaniscence via pm**

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. SOME reinterpretation is recommended, but not required.

MnP Instructions/Guidelines

1. Covers and Sound Upgrades are permitted.

2. Most or all of the source notes must be present (but not necessarily in the exact same order), secondly the mood (energy, pacing, feelings being conveyed etc) should also be retained. For example, a source tune that is fast-paced and energetic that's remixed into a mellow/chill-out theme would be a hard sell.

3. If you decide to do a genre swap (i.e. symphonic to techno), make sure that the conditions of #2 are met.

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

5. Only 1 entry per participant. Previous winner cannot participate but can submit a BONUS entry.

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

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

Gonna sit out. I was intending on contributing more consistently, but life is kicking my butt.

Not a problem, MnP should be around for a while yet.

Well, if this round ends up with only submission, at least it's a pretty damn sweet one.

I'll see if any1 shows any enthusiasm in doing something, if not - 1 sub is better than none, like you said lol.

Idk what it is, something always seems to go wrong for me in one form or in another. So I feel like I get these exceptions/second chances a lil too often, or at least I know someone probably thinks like that by now.

They're always appreciated but if it ever gets too hectic then feel free to deny it. I don't want to to give off impressions that I get benefits or anything, cuz these issues are happening to me a lot more recently at the other competitions also.

Well today I was feeling very charitable, since this week's been annoying for me. I also gave everyone else another chance until 10PM Pacific today, so it's not too big a thing - that and my timing is bad anyhow. But there is definitely a line I have to draw somewhere...I'll play it by ear.

Comments:

Nice seeing some new participants joining the fray! A very good round altogether. Also, the ThaSauce scores aren't correct, since there are no voter bonuses tallied.

Still have not received a submission for next round. If Xayberoptix doesn't get back to me in about 2 days, I'll pm the second place guy for an entry and so forth until someone provides me a source tune for round 30.

Hmmm Xayberoptix has not yet provided a source and I can't seem to find a "GeckoYamori" for a pm as the account doesn't exist. Not sure what to do next. I'm gonna say that whoever from the previous round can provide me a source tune the quickest gets their pick for round 30. Failing that I guess that round 30 can be a 'free round' or something...
