I have decided on "Magypsy Party" from Mother 3. Fast or slow, we have a saxophone solo, and those characters are probably the biggest reason we don't have Mother 3 outside of JP. Aside from the O2 Tanks. It's a pretty song with a lot of possible variations. 
It works at many tempos with or with out the lead. 
This could be a good base for the dual source challenge. Please use portamento if possible.

Hello again! TheVideoGamer here doing another entry.

For this one, i thought i'd go for something more obscure and a little unique. The game is  Summer Carnival 92 Recca and the track name is Jetter. Also known as the first half of Stage One.

This is a rare NES game, that has only more recently popped up, thanks to it's inclusion in the Virtual Console for download. Back then it was mainly a Japan only title, purposely made for a convention called Summer Carnival. (A competition for Video Game developers). There is also another game, made for the 1993 Summer Carnival released for the PC Engine, under the title of Nexzr. 

The game is a bullet hell shooter, and while not a successful game, it did show a rather amazing amount of speed (And a Sh*t ton of enemies) for system that could barely do 30fps. 

The music itself is also underrated. It followed in the 90's techno sound, so yes it's rather...er..repetitive, but i think it's unique in itself. I'm actually impressed with the sample quality to say this is NES, and even more impressed that there is 2-3 sounds playing simultaneously. I mean the repetition is actually good, because you can be a little creative with your mix. Honestly i think it's a little gem, but i suppose not everyone will probably get a knack out of it. I guess it's weather they can do it or what they make of it. 

As usual i made a MIDI from scratch. This took me no time, especially considering it's a looping based track. You can access it on VGMusic here.

Bonus mix submitted! The other source is great, but i had slight problems integrating both together, so sadly i stuck with my source. Really the main reason i made the bonus, is because i won the last 3 rounds, and i think it's fair, other people have a chance of winning.

I'll meet you next round, remixers, as I have so much things to do right now.

Good luck to everyone and yes, expect me to vote this round too.

No worries. We all have periods where we just have so much to do.

Sometimes work comes before play, you know.

Good luck to you anyways!

I made a thing using both sources that turned out better than expected. The Jetter source was a weird one to combine with Magypsy Party.

That's the thing in dual sources. Each person will probably have something different. I didn't know what Dudley_Ghost was going to pick., so that made the combination random.

You may select any source from any game, but not a source with an OverClocked remix or a source which has been used in PRC before. An overview of the past PRC's can be found in the following links (I recently updated this site):

What are some ways to improve my mixing as its the area I need to work on the most?


Often the most controversial topic, as there are so many ways to approach it. Even i get some things wrong, and end up with a poorly produced mix. If you really want some tips, i'd suggest you try this topic, as many people provide some great ideas. It might not work for you, but give it a shot, it could come in handy. Oh well, good luck. You really do have the potential to make great music. Again i'm no expert, and i get things wrong, but i'd thought i give my two cents.
