  1. 1. What do you think of the longer remixing period and PRC?

    • Good.
      7
    • Bad idea, I prefer the two weeks round duration. PRC should stay the same.
      1
    • I want multiple sources or a whole game to select a source from to remix.
      3
    • I want easy sources as well, please scrap the rule that sources with OC Remixes aren't allowed.
      6
    • Bundeslang must enter himself instead of letting HoboKa save the contest each time.
      5
    • Please run multiple rounds in parallel (let PRC379 start in two weeks already).
      2
    • Other ideas (please post in the topic).

The People's Remix Competition 378
PRCv15-14

Hello everyone and Welcome to the People's Remix Competition!

In PRC376 it was again HoboKa who saved the contest by submitting a song. Again he picked a source.

Because of the low participation I'm gonna try out a longer remixing stage. So the deadline is next month, more time to remix!!

The longer duration of the round will not affect the length of a PRC season, it will just take longer to reach round 26 of the season.

Note that also a poll is added. If anyone has ideas, let me know with a reply.

"More than words - title says all.  A surprisingly expressive tune for such limited hardware."

ThaSauce link: Click here to submit


To submit a song at the compo page you can use the ThaSauce page. If you use this, an account is required. If you don't want to use ThaSauce, please upload the song somewhere else and post a download link in this thread. I recommend Soundcloud, don't forget to allow downloads to enable me to upload the song at ThaSauce. I will keep using ThaSauce as the place where all songs are located.

If you want to use ThaSauce, the following steps should be done.

  • Click the ThaSauce Link.
  • Click the 'You are not logged in' button in the upper right.
  • Click on 'register' (at the bottom).
  • Read the terms and click 'I agree to these terms'. If you don't agree with them, upload the song somewhere else and post a download link as mentioned above (by doing that, you allow me to upload the song at ThaSauce.
  • Continue the process by filling in your information.
  • You will get a question to confirm that you're not a robot. Here are some possible answers:
  1. Name a compo: PRC
  2. Who organizes One Hour Compo: Starla
  3. Name a ThaSauce subdomain: compo.thasauce.net
  4. Who created Mega Mans: Capcom

A confirmation mail will be send. There might be some issues with it (meaning that you don't get it), if that is the case, upload the song somewhere else as described above.

Once registered, login with your username and password, go to the mentioned page and submit the song. If you want submit two or more songs you can create multiple ThaSauce accounts or upload the song somewhere else and post the download link.

After uploading your song, please check if your song plays and can be downloaded and played without problems. Only upload MP3 files.

 

PRC instructions

  • The deadline is Wednesday August 15th 2018 at 10:59 am ThaSauce time (18:00 GMT), check the ThaSauce page for the exact time left. Make sure that the song is uploaded to ThaSauce or that there’s a download link posted in this thread.
  • You may enter as many mixes as you like and work with as many people as you like on each mix. You are free to create a second ThaSauce account for that if you use ThaSauce, it's needed to be able to upload a second remix if you use ThaSauce. Of course you can also upload it somewhere else and put a download link in this thread.
  • Do not make qualitative comments on an entry until the results of the vote have been posted in this thread.
  • Mixers cannot vote for themselves but if they vote they receive a free first place vote added onto their score.
  • The winner of this round may select the source for PRC380, the round after next round.
  • The winner of PRC376, HoboKa, who picked this source, can only participate by submitting a Bonus Mix. His vote is doubled in the voting stage.
  • You can find the full rules list at this page as well. Note that the remixing stage is longer, but this won't have affect on the remaining rules.

 

GOOD LUCK!

Holy crap. Absolutely love this track. I’ll definitely try and get something out this round.

Apologies on MIDI...tried to find a better one, but no dice.  I think if you turn down the velocities on it it should sound good, unless you can go by ear then no probs :P

Some of the timing is off on the notes too, but for what I want to do that shouldn't be too big of an issue. Since we have a longer mixing period this time around, should be ample time to get something nice out.

"Bundeslang must enter himself instead of letting HoboKa save the contest each time."

:lol::lol:

By the way my vote included "I want easy sources as well, please scrap the rule that sources with OC Remixes aren't allowed," but it's not about wanting easy sources so much as wanting inspiring sources.

I think its just that theres essentially two copies of the melody.  Theres four channels playing the melody and three playing the harmony. Three of the melody channels play nicely together, but the fourth is just the other three stacked into one channel and played off time so it sounds funny. 

This longer remixing period is definitely nice. I always start a mix and then get distracted and before i know it im two days away from the sub time with no ideas.

Dude, I'm loving this longer period too. Half of my track is already done, and I'm very, very pleased with the end result. I'll definitely have something up by the submission date.

I think the longer deadline works for me too, as long as I don't do the usual and start working right before the deadline regardless of how much time I'd actually have ...

I have! Yesterday I just reached the point where it turned from "trying to figure out the notes" to "this is starting to find some character of its own", which is exciting!

Also finally sent in my source pick for the next round. It's a genuine classic and one of my all time favourite VGM pieces!
