MnP 54: Xenoblade Chronicles X - The Way

Recommended Posts

Compo: MnP (Meat 'n Potatoes)

Round 54: Xenoblade Chronicles X - The Way



Alright, got a good one for this. Been on a Xenoblade Chronicles X kick, so my pick is one of my favorite tunes from the game: "The Way"


Deadline: May 24th Thurs 1 PM

Vote Ends: May 26th Sun 11 PM

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)

When I asked for a melodic one with vocals I should have clarified an easy one, not one that is crazy harder than even the last round would have been :cry:  Gosh darn you Kat / Mouse!

Naaaaah, easy would've been too easy.

I might do something with the source, but my usual field(orchestral) has already been destroyed by an in-game arrangement of it, so I'll have to try something different.

Just so I know I've seen people say not to arrange the mixes too much for MnP, but what if I wanted to make a proper remix? For example I would kind of want to make an electronic thing with auto tune vocals, kind of one of those hip people songs.. so it'd be different from the original, that is if I even enter :x 2 weeks is NOT a lot of wiggle room..I could easily see not being able to hit the deadline

Changing genres is fine.  It's the (majority thereof) notation, mood, energy and pacing being retained that I'm mainly concerned about.  Besides, I'm only one vote.  Everyone else seems to have a different perspective of what it is to be MnP.  So, go crazy :D

Haha, you and me both. I'll definitely have a bonus mix ready in time, but it may be a bit rushed. I'm not particularly experienced with mixing/mastering, much less with vocals for a change. Good a time to learn as any though.

Dat butt clench.  Digging the track.  I'm gonna start up the voting phase naow.  Thanks for participating DusK and chalis - and thanks for your BONUS Kat.

Man I'm sorry. What day is it??? Uncharted 4 came out and I already finished it and. Got good at the multiplayer. And I beat some punk who was trash talking in a 1v1 and didn't even gloat that much. Sorry for not remixing X.x

This came 1 week too late, but that's alright Brandon.  We look forward to seeing you participate in the near, or late future ;)

BTW...someone just banned that account for that "The Way" YT video..."copywrite infringement take-down notice" shit.  I hate you YT.

Well I'm stupid.  Just realized that participant votes are considered null in a 2-participant round, as stated in the PRC guidelines (Sorry guys!!).  So, I'll add a +1 to the scores as compensation for not properly addressing the issue.
