"Hi HoboKa!  I think it's time to take a nostalgia trip back to 1990 to remix an arcade classic! It would be great to hear some remixes of the main theme of one of my favorite games from my childhood, "Escape From The Planet Of The Robot Monsters". Sorry for the long title though!"

- Xenonetix

Deadline: Sept 18th Sun 1 PM

Vote Ends: Sept 20th Tues 11 PM

MnP ARCHIVE  - made by Trism ;) 

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)

I'll have something good, and it'll be something.  I didn't get a chance to do an over-the-top bonus track last round, so I'm probably doing an over-the-top track this round instead. Just gotta get some recording in.

Nice source, though. Really easy to work with.

Oh man. I remember seeing this arcade game in the wild back in the day. I don't think I played it, but it's very memorable. Some Matt Furniss goodness here! (If you like his stuff you should check out this Pixelated Audio episode!) Sounds like this tune is exclusive to the Atari ST version ... he seems to have written a different intro tune for Atari ST, Amiga, DOS (groovy monophonic bass riff there!), Commodore 64, plus one that's shared between ZX Spectrum and Amstrad CPC. That's crazy! Crazy awesome, I mean.

damn, i thought this was done on monday. oh well.  Just gonna post my mix on soundcloud and link it here, that way it wasnt entirely a waste. Im mostly just proud of the clever title. 

 

Wow - this is some glitchy fun.  Great pads and cut-off effects.  Dat bass and beat too.  Like the ass and tits of a Kardashian, only real.  I'd have a HARD time placing you as there were several other entries who also deserve 1st place hahaha.  This round has been real dope.  Wish I participated as well.  But #reasons...

Hopefully my vote went through, but I voted before Trism's bonus was submitted. Not sure how I managed that, but get back to me if I need to submit it again!

I love what both Trism and Esperado have done with the piece! Glad to see this piece getting such love and a variety of cool remixes through!

You didn't vote for Trism so there's no problem.

Just posted my vote as well.

EDIT: I just listened to your MnP59 song and I must say that I really liked how you changed the instruments. If only I didn't miss so many rounds I would have voted in that round as well.
