I'll send you my transcribed midi later tonight! It's a pretty simple source for the most part. 

Hehe maybe the competition hosts or OCR itself ought to hire in-house MIDI transcribers =p

Hey @Esperado, this is as close to the source as I'm willing to transcribe: https://www.dropbox.com/s/31dq8pwwm982cm8/Abandoned%20Castle.mid?dl=0

Major thanks! On with the games!

@Esperado I just realized your source is in 12/8 time, which happens to be my all-time favorite time signature to write in! :D 

I didnt know it was 12/8 to be honest. I thought it was 4/4 at first and then my Daw claims its in 6/8. 12/8 sounds much less stressful to mix with 4/4 source material.

6/8 and 12/8 are pretty much the same thing, it's just whether you think of the "bars" as having 2 or 4 beats. It's more natural for me to think in 4 beats.

I've done 2 songs in 12/8 and have one more that's on-hold. Everything in that meter feels super bouncy and fun, even if it's in minor key!

My laptop's battery and adapter are broken, so I don't know if I will be able to make it in time. Thanks Cthulhu for the mobile version of the website though :P

:(

Hope you can get that fixed. Dead batteries are the worst.

Ug. I'll be working tomorrow to try and get mine done. I got things started last week but then a job came in that required my full attention...and then the big snow hit. Keeping up with the clean up efforts has totally wasted me. I'll see what I can do tomorrow but I hope to have something to turn in.

Less than 24 hours left for our first bracket!  I have two entries so far.  I know Yami and theshaggyfreak will have to do some last-minute work, but best of luck to them both, and hopefully we'll get a full set.

Got my AC adapter today! I finally can use my laptop again, yay ^^

Yay!

Mixing is on hold for me until a new set of guitar strings arrive since I didn't think to check that I had any ahead of time and none of the stores in my area sell ones that are heavy enough XD.

Mine will be incoming soon, couldn't (er, more like DIDN'T, lol) work on it on either weekend, spent two solid weeknights on it. Like a Vampire.

It's thematic, goddamnit.

EDIT: Aaaaand, sub'd. SURPRISE!

Well, I got something turned in. It's not my best work and it's on the short side but I wanted to at least have something to submit. I ended up starting over last night because what I originally wanted to do was too complicated to finish in the time I had left.

Here is something I made in conjunction with my song that gives a hint about it.

Super Secret Picture

Now to finish the song. 

I have 5 entries so far, just missing yours.  Deadline is in 50 minutes.

I'll be getting the new pairings up first, then the music as soon as I can.

Simon Bracket

The full schedule and brackets are here.  Looking at it now, turns out it too minimizes the chronological distance between games.  Not that that was improbable in this case.

I'll get the music up ASAP, and the voting thread shortly thereafter.  There will be a slight delay due to the fact that only 3 of the 6 were named correctly.  At least we got all 6, good job everybody!
