Compo: MnP (Meat 'n Potatoes)

Round 47: FF9 - Zhorn & Thorn




Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Y75EjVX8yo

Deadline: Jan 5th Tuesday 1PM
Vote Ends: Jan 8th Friday midnight

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**

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

- 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)

It no longer had 2015 for the compo start line...guess when the new year rolled in 2015 ceased to exist.  Anyhow I've made the startline Jan 1 2016...due date's in 3 days and 0 entries >.<

I'll def. extend the round if we don't have 2 entries by then.

Side note, you might want to look at the voting deadline as well. It's an awesome mix, but I don't think we need a whole year to vote!

Woah missed that one.  Thanks for the heads up.  Thanks Kat.

Okay so we've got 3 entries, got roughly 1 more day for other people to submit something :D

Trism, pm me for round 48 (so close to round 50!!  Wherein we're gonna do something SPECIAL =p)


Good submission and voter turn up.  

Supercoolmike!!! I thought that Devious Twins was actually quite good!  Because the soundscape, pacing and mood were retained. Notation re-working is pretty decent - adds to the original feel nicely.  1:25 break down was real sexy.   Devious Twins does meander a tad, but I LOVE to meander myself, so it's all good in the hood bro.   4.9/5 easy.  Sorry for not adding in a comment on ThaSauce for your bonus track, but better to be late than never, right?
