You ever hear the tragedy of Darth HoboKa the Unwise?  ...I thought not, it's not a story the Bundeslang would tell you.

·       State a reasoning for it.

·       Do not vote for HoboKa, his song is a bonus.

If you vote by PM make sure that your top 3 is clear. I prefer something like this:

Heh can't win them all. Dex hasn't won in a while, makes sense for him to win. 

Congrats Dex!

Sorry, I haven’t had time to select a source for the next round yet. It’s hard to find a good one to do for this competition. I wanted to select something from Secret of Mana. Could I get an extension on selecting the source, and could anyone help me find one from Secret of Mana that hasn’t been done yet?

No problem. I want it before the next round ends, so you have 10 days.

Wait so a group effort? That would be interesting ;)

I'm thinking of The Oracle. What do you think about that? It's not been remixed so, and you did say you needed help.

Thanks for the suggestion, TVG. I don't think I'll choose that one but at least it got me off my butt. It's actually not too bad to look at a game soundtrack here on OCR and see which tracks already have remixes after all. For reference, the tracks in Secret of Mana that would be eligible for PRC right now are:

a conclusion
calm before the storm
ceremony
file select
did you see the ocean
eternal recurrence
i closed my eyes
in the dead of night
it happened late one evening
meridian dance
monarch on the shore
morning is here
mystic invasion
now flightless wings
prophecy
secret of the arid sands
steel and snare
the curse
the little sprite
the oracle
the wind never ceases

Maybe I'll choose one of them ;)

No worries, I’ve not seen a group source pick before, so it’s interesting. All we need to do, is find the most enjoyable, and most workable to remix. 

At least I can be of help. Maybe i might listen to see which ones I like later, not that it will be the source choice, it’s all up to you.

Thanks anyways.

Ok so here is my take on this. I'm speaking this from my view, yours might be different. I don't want to influence your choice, i just want to help a man, with Source Block (Writer's Block but in the context of PRC. What? It's a thing, i'm trying my best lol). Anyways. 

File Select does not appear on the soundtrack, so that's ruled out.

These are the ones that are too short to be useful:

  1. Mystic Invasion (Still a good tune though)
  2. The Little Sprite (I find this a little silly, not that it's bad)
  3. I Closed my Eyes (It's 30 seconds tops, with only really 10 seconds of material, before it's looped. Same can be said for most of the ones on this category)
  4. It Happened Late One Evening (This reminds me of a child's cartoon. No bass either)

 I Closed My Eyes is only 30 seconds, and this of course, is with looping. Most of what I've heard on the ones I've mentioned so far (The short ones), is a little on the repetitive side, so it's going to be hard to remix. 

My personal favourites on the list, that i like, and probably recommend:

  1. The Oracle (A kickass rave like tune, something for the nightclub) 
  2. Meridian Dance (It has a lot of nicely balanced tonal and rhythmical elements, that sort of suit your style)
  3. Did you See the Ocean (I really love the melody here....like really really)
  4. A Conclusion (Despite it being one sound, the melody and chords are really great)

These aren't too short, and they have a lot of interesting ideas, plus they're easy to remix. A Conclusion is a little on the short side, but i really like this one so...

These ones, are lengthy enough, but have nothing useful to give, musically and sonically (In this case, only serves for atmosphere):

  1. Ceremony (I find this one too silly)
  2. The Curse (I feel it's more Sound Effects, than Music, like a short looped soundscape)

And the ones, that sound good, but might be hard to remix:

  1. Monarch on the Shore (A lot of triplet usage here, not sure about that)
  2. Morning is Here (A bit too repetitive, which might make it a challenge)
  3. Steel and Snare (The kick, sounds crazy here)
  4. In the Dead of the Night (A bit on the short side, and relies on constrained melodic ideas)
  5. Prophecy (This one is wacky with the time signatures)

These ones are also good, but i find them a bit on the boring side:

  1. Secret of the Arid Sands (I find this a bit too...er...minimal. Needs more)
  2. Calm Before the Storm (I find it a little short and repetitive)

These tracks, are really good, but they don't differentiate from each other, in terms of style and genre:

  1. Fear of the Heavens (Strings and Bass. Pretty much. Chords are great though)
  2. Now Flightless Wings (This one is especially good, another favourite, but it's lacking instrumentation in the second half)
  3. The Wind Never Ceases (Again sounds good, but i think it's another short one)
  4. Eternal Recurrence (Very similar to the others, in terms of style and genre, of course different, in melody)

This is what i take on it. You might think differently. Let me know, what your thoughts are, this might be a bit too much for you lol.

Wow. I’ve only managed to listen to half of the tracks so far, but when I listen to the rest I’ll definitely be comparing notes.

No worries, I’m just here to help. Don’t think I’m doing the work for you, just giving a bit of... I guess advice...I’m mainly trying to narrow it down, to a select few, to make it easier in the selection process.
