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)

Sadly I did not find the time.

I put up a BONUS at least, so we're good there.  nvm.

BTW...umm...I'm thinking that MnP is gonna take a brief hiatus for a month or two...or more lol.  I'm gonna focus on helping keep PRC alive for now.

Hey Compo doods - do you think I should add 1 more CV4 remix to make the round seem a bit fresher?  Or is Forest of Monsters good enough?

I have a project that requires all of my time until the 31st. If you extend the round to November 4th, I might be able to come up with something. :) I understand that's a tall order, but at least you'd get an entry!

Could play it by ear.  We'll see.  edit) Depends on participation.  At the VERY least, I can submit you in as a BONUS and if no other entries, I will make you defacto winner lol.

Maybe if only 1 entry, I will extend since you seem very interested Silverpool :) :)

(EDIT)

*cracks knuckles* ...okay, let's see what horror I can create...think I got the energy and ears aren't so congested for now lol.

(edit2)

Probably be as a BONUS.  Don't want to steal anyone's mojo.

Sorry that I haven't entered for a while, but I'm going to try to get something submitted this time!

The past few times, I haven't been able to think of anything, but I have a couple of ideas I'd like to try this time.

Edit #1: Okay, so far, so good-ish! I think I can finish this today. I think I'm really bending one of the rules for this entry, but, hopefully, it still is "close enough". :)

Edit #2: Submitted! I'm looking forward to listening to the other entries tomorrow.

You sir are a gentleman and a scholar.  Thanks for participating, it means a lot!

(edit) Are you Klevarkoopa on CompoThaSauce?

Also, we have 3 viable entries thus far.  1 more day to go!  It's nice to know we can now hit the due date I was aiming for, so we can get the results on Howlowe'en day :3

Thank you sir! I've been wanting to participate for a while now, but I haven't had any ideas (aside from sound sidegrades).

And, to answer your question, I'm indeed KlevarKoopa on ThaSauce (also my YouTube username). I'm mostly keeping this name on here for nostalgia's sake (and it also aligns with my SoundCloud username). :)

Once again, I'm looking forward to hearing everyone's mixes! :D

Edit #1: I updated my entry - I edited the drums. After listening, they felt "off". I hope that I got it a bit better this time!

I forgot to submit my comment on the bonus entry when I voted so I'll just post it here now.

hoboka - Damn, those are some epic drums and I thought you did a really good job with the drum part and the leads. I liked the rising part on the synth strings (?) you added about 2/3 of the way through.
