Midi

Deadline: Feb 23 @ 2PM Mon

Vote Ends: Feb 26 @ noon Thursday

Submit your remix Here when completed.

**If you have technical difficulty with account activation at ThaSauce, please contact me via PM and I will submit your track and will also tally your vote**

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

Oooo, bawwww... now this is a tempting source. It's my introduction to JCRPGs and this is one of the many memorable tunes. Hmh. Maybe I'll try to learn how to midirip. Maybe this time it won't end in tears.

Oh god this source.
damn that's tempting.

^ This.

Got a bias for the Boss Battle, but the whole soundtrack is sweet.

Hoping to free up some time in the coming weeks for this. ;)

if I may ask a question. y are the deadlines so long? at this rate, this will turn into a monthly compo. if ppl procrastinate until the last second (like me, lol), then wouldn't the deadline being shorter better? to me when the deadlines are increased, it feels less important to become a priority. Especially if other compo's are being participated.

I'm of course assuming everyone's life is going swimmingly to make such accusations. i'm just being concerned about the compo. ;-)

I probably added another week by accident when I made it. I'll keep that in mind for the next round.

God damn that's tempting. Might be able to squeeze in a bit of time for this--it's an MnP and I've remixed this source before.

Well luckily as supercoolmike pointed out, I made this round longer than normal, kinda like a "monthly" round, so should be a bigger window lol.

Midi ripping is fun >: 3 and plus I'm lazy so it's how I roll.

I've got a 13 seconds WIP done! :D I notice the thread topic says voting stage, but the deadline on thasauce is still 14 hours away? I'm cool either way, I'm happy to have started something out of a nostalgic source tune, and even if I managed to continue this one, I think it's probably pretty non-MnP so I'd only submit is as a bonus, most likely.

That was my bad, it is indeed still not due yet. Man this round has been probably the worst in terms of management - getting all the dates mixed up and done incorrectly. Next round should go smoother.

Didn't manage to transcribe much more than the bassline, apart from the intro and the eight bars in the middle of the source that served as the starting point for the adaptation to this sound. So it's a skeleton, but maybe it'll be an interesting skeleton to listen to nonetheless.. I'm happy to have started this tune, as FFMQ was one of the first soundtracks to make me really notice VGM, and it's still a really good soundtrack. Transcribing the piece is making me appreciate it even more.

You proly already know the answer: bonus mix. ;)

Actually, I'll let it pass since I screwed up the process last round, I should've picked my own source and let the previous winner or 2nd runner up choose another source alongside my own pick, if they so choose. Since the winner last round never responded to my pm. So I'll let Gercr participate. There will be no 2x voter bonus though :P - this round only, I promise!

...isn't working too well. Tried it for the last PRC but ended up having to ask Bundeslang for assistance uploading my track over there.

Still can't access my account or vote. Hoping this can get resolved somehow, cause I don't wanna be anymore of a burden for you guys.

Got it done, thanks for participating Mokram :D
Much appreciated, sir. Thanks for being understanding and for letting me join the fun. :smile:

Hmm...well, I finally know how to properly sub in people's tracks now AND how to properly credit their name at ThaSauce, so just pm me whenever you wanna submit something for MnP - just try to give 24 hours notice or something.

I'm willing to bet that Bundeslang has a better idea than me as to why Rama is so reclusive/hard to reach these days =p - (or maybe Starla knows more). But yeah, for now, anyone who can't set up or access an account at ThaSauce can just contact me via PM and I will do my best to submit your track in asap.

Oh and submit your votes via PM and I will just post your vote within the compo thread and credit your 1st-place vote bonus if it applies (for this round it does :D)
