Deadline: March 14 Wed @ 1PM

Submit your remix Here when completed.

MnP ARCHIVE  made by Trism ;)

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. Please don't make any comments about people's entries - including your own - until the Voting process is concluded.  BONUS entries are exempt of this rule.
  7. 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)

Somehow mixed Dio with Zio.  Wondered why it was hard to find reliable YT videos for the source tune.  :P

edit Ah, that's why...the MIDI called it Dio.

You WIN Dextastic!! - FINISH HIM!!!  Oh wait...wrong game.  Right, carry on then!

Dex, please pick the entry for MNP round 90!!

comments:

Dex's entry: Epic metal cover-mix.  This is mixed and produced better than most of my works, so I'm unsure of how to improve it, maybe someone else can help you, if you share this in the WIPs thread.  Also, was the tempo slowed down?  If not, then it is a really awesome trick.  Excellent work.

Ahhh, I don't think you should have conceded based on the merits of your work alone because I thought your track was quite excellent, although I can understand not wanting to pick the next source. I like the beginning of your remix better than mine. I'm not sure how I feel about the part where you slowed it down, but that makes it all the more epic when you sped it back up. You also used the whole of the source unlike me. Dat ending though...I'm a stickler on endings and I would have liked to hear one here. Anything! Maybe I was supposed to imagine it looped instead. Hmmmmmm.

Anyway, lemme check...yes, I slowed my remix down to 145 BPM throughout. I actually forgot to check the BPM in the original midi before I got to work, which I see now was 151 BPM.

Yeah, 151 is kinda weird.  It is probably 150 for the actual source tune.  I think I did some slight alterations too, minus the part at 0:57 which was a major one lol.  Sorry bout ending, I get pretty un-creative for vg-remix endings...sometimes I try though lol.
