Neither is OCR of late.  Or my browser...or maybe even my Office 365 doing funny stuff with the Windows 7's clipboard...overriding it or somethin'

Or when you copy something in your DAW, but instead you hit delete, which is above paste, effectively making you copy it all over again....

Forgot to include BONUS comments. 

So.  Loving the FX you added in there.  Something I neglected to add.  Brass/Reed samples are a bit stale for TVG's (Wow..your name almost spells AVGN - I see what you did there!...or maybe I'm so sleep deprived that I'm full of poop) usual high-fi sound.  Get Sample Tank 3 or something >: 3  Still, 'Summer Paradise' would apt score highly, if not for the BONUS suffix.  Very faithful adaptation and some nice additional touches.  Percussion & mallet instruments top knotch as always for TheVideoGamerofDoomDingles&Cheese.  Oh wait, that's me.

And...I debated whether or not to recuse myself from the vote.  If I win, I ought to give 2nd place a pick too.  Kinda like Ru Paul throwing his own hat in the ring at Drag Race or something.  Probably not good sport.

Speaking of poor sport, here's my Original Works Portfolio.  It's very rough around the edges atm...looking to commission someone for art/banners/album shit.  Figured this was the most appropriate venue for me to share at OCR, ...since most people in the Community Section give me a pass.

It’s a shame you can’t share it to others, as this sounds like a good start.

Keep at it man. People at OCR just want to turn simple hobbies into professional Grade A quality mixes. So many small details people nitpick about. (Especially if we were discussing this piece of work) At least with the Compo scene, nobody cares about quality as much. That’s why i like MnP and PRC. 

Even regardless of production, the Compo scene is more nicer and friendly. I’m more comfortable and open with talking to you, than what I’ve seen from exploring this website. Wow I sound all soppy lol.

Oh well thanks for running this anyways.

Probably should've made this a PM.  Shouldn't share this kinda shit in public, but thanks for the pep talk dude.  No problem, guess it's therapy for me to run this compo thang. 

(edit)

Nevermind, decided to spam the Original Works sub-forum.  Someone has to liven up the place... Right.

Rejwan, you may want to submit a vote.  There's a 3-point bonus if you do.  You don't want to lose out on that, especially since (I think) everyone else who participated has voted, which gives them a 3 point edge.  If you're having trouble with Compoverse's system, just private-message me your vote.  Thanks.

Oops, I'm wrong: Silverpool64 needs to vote too.

Thanks for the heads up HoboKa! I must have missed that when reading the rules

I'll submit my votes now

Yeah, I kind of ride off of PRC's coattails.  I'll link you the guidebook anyhow.  It's more geared towards the hosts (duh) but it covers all the bases on rules.  Step 5 is what you want primarily.  Pardon all the edits.

edit over 9000

==============================================================================
STEP 5 - The Voting Stage
==============================================================================

So, the mixing stage is over. You've got a nice bunch of entries. And now it's
time to go with the voting stage!

Since this will run pretty much automatically, you will need to make a post in
your OCRemix thread regarding it.  State what the voters should do in whatever
format you want:

- Visit the stated ThaSauce page and listen to all the entries
- Scroll to the form at the bottom of the screen
- Fill it in, filing the entries (or if there's four or more, only three) from
first to third (or in the case of two, leaving the third place tab blank)
- State a reasoning for it.

Remember to state the bonuses as well - the vote for the winner of the
previous round counts twice, as they made an important contribution to
starting up the contest to begin with. (This rule isn't enforced in special
contests.)  And all contestants will get three points (the value for a first
place vote) added to their score if they vote too. Their vote won't work at
all for two-entry PRCs though, as both their first place vote and bonus will
cancel each other out.

And finally, remember to state the final details - the closing date/time for
voting, and what the winner will receive (in the event of a normal MnP it
would be the chance to choose the source tune for the next one after that; if
it's a special one, it would be the prize you stated at the beginning).

Once you've posted the page, it's all a case of putting all this into
practice.

Let's go back to the "Admin" page on the C:TS server, and back onto "MnP".
Click on the round.

You should get two lists underneath the blurb you stated at the beginning -
a list of rounds and a list of votes.  Hopefully you might have already been
here to delete any disqualified entries or bonus-ify some mixes.

When votes come in, they would get tabbed in automatically.  This is where
the bonuses would indeed be added in. But everything becomes different
depending on the amount of entries, so this is how everything would be
tabulated appropriately.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
|ROUND QUANTITY |   NORMAL VOTE   | PREVIOUS WINNER |    CONTESTANT   |
|               | 1ST | 2ND | 3RD | 1ST | 2ND | 3RD | 1ST | 2ND | 3RD |
|---------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|
|2 ENTRIES      |  3     2     -  |  6     4     -  |  -     -     -  |
|3 ENTRIES      |  3     2     1  |  6     4     2  |  3     2     -  |
|4+ ENTRIES     |  3     2     1  |  6     4     2  |  3     2     1  |
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

To apply these alterations and the stated bonuses above, click on the "edit"
button for any of these entries and replace the "Score" value with the new
one.

Once you've got the new scores in, make sure you check that you've done the
right thing. Once you're convinced that you've adjusted the scores to what
they should be like, you should be doing just fine.

One last thing - be sure to check for duplicate IPs! Nineko tried to spoil the
PRC vote with duplicate IPs back in PRC76's Decap Attack contest (and quite a
few others before that, whenever he took part), so you have to be really
careful over who submitted what. Luckily, there's an IP address field in the
list of voters, so if in doubt, cite it. It is also possible to allow multiple
entries.

Results

  • Rejwan got 1st place with 14 points
  • Silverpool64 got 2nd place with 13 points
  • Mr. L. got 3rd with 12 points
  • HoboKa got the Robotnik spoon with 7 points

Comments

Still having format-retention issues when copying/pasting....  I will try Opera when I make round 105 and see if that is a workaround. 

ALSO

Rejwan, you can't vote for yourself.  I'll let you off the hook since this is your first time.  I didn't tally your self-vote though, so there's that.  In spite of that misunderstanding, you still won the round.  So there's a plus side to this.  Congraturations.

Rejwan, Private-Message me your source pick for round 105!!

Well done on your first MnP win Rejwan!

Much appreciated, I really liked your mix too. Loved the fx and drum sounds used. How did you find the fx?

A lot of people are interested in the record scratches lol. It’s just a combination of samples pitched. As for effects in general, only delay and reverb are really used. Rest remains unchanged. I only realised after uploading I might have needed more reverb in some parts. 

Drums are a combination of a DnB break and reggae samples from a pack. 

Oh well thanks anyways!
