Compo: MnP (Meat 'n Potatoes) Feels kinda funny to be doing this again. My choice for the next source is Secret of Mana's track "A Wish" (also known as the frosty forest or ice-crystal

Hmm, never played Secret of Mana too much but I wanna get my fox in the fray for the first time! Maybe I'll see what I can do >_<

Meanwhile I'm still trying to figure out what to do for 2 different songs due basically back to back, this and one for a songwriter contest. Feels so intimidating, again, lol. (In a good way--got

Good round, folks. I THINK I got my vote in. It gave me a weird screen when I submitted it, said something about having already voted or something. Dunno if there's a way to check if it went through. Either way, good sounds, good sounds.

I checked it, Wassup Thunder and AZPX voted so far, so your vote isn't submitted.

Oof, no it did not save the vote.  Sorry for posting the voting round late...gave it an extension.  Make sure to copy paste your vote before submitting again, if it gives you another weird screen, PM it to me.  Same with anyone else who submitted a vote, but didn't register.

So far, we got Wassup Thunder, APZX and a Bundeslang vote.  I'm going to submit mine right now.

ARRGG...I forgot to mention the BONUS entry in my vote.

Souperion: good thing you weren't competing otherwise it'd probably be another win by you lol.  Loved that you captured the weird Whale-Wind sound from SoM' intro.  Nice MMM choirs.  What do you call that Egyptian Wind thing at 0:55 and 1:29...it's so discreetly hidden you can barely tell it's its own thing.  But I love it all the same.  Lots of hidden nuances here and layers.  Like an onion.  A very sexy onion.

Aw, thanks. I'd say the same for yours! I layered a duduk and oboe for the woodwinds in mine, and used a Secret of Mana soundfont I got a while ago for those familiar 16 bit elements.

Aha, the Daduk.  I got one of those, time for me to try it out.  I got a SoM soundfont pack too,...some great sounds for sure!  Good stuff.  :P

Comments

Great round folks!!  But...looking back, I gotta say that my feedback on Wassup Thunder's entry was pretty bad.  I still stand by the scoring, but the feedback I gave was just...terrible.  Production niggles aside, the Composition, it is VERY good and it is still within MnP's scope.  So I failed there.  Apologies man.  X_X

Souperion's Vote

1st: Kat's Winter's End.

2nd: Wassup Thunder's

3rd: APZX's.

Thanks, sorry for the mishmash.

Good round all! And no sweat, Hoboka, I get ya. I agree with a lot of feedback that I veered from the MnP style a bit much, so I'll focus in on that next round! I appreciate the feedback in this contest. I'm always trying to get my orchestral elements to sound more organic and full, along with improving my arrangements in general. Can't wait to see the next round!

EDIT 2 million

OK.  The real feedback that I want to convey was in the Results/Comments.  All other attempts...just...didn't match up to what I really think.  The problem is...I'm no good at this.  It's getting hard to give quality feedback cuz things have picked up again and we're getting a lot of quality entries.  So...it falls down to minor gripes and that's when the questionable feedback arises.....I'm sorry for all the updates/edits.  I'm so derp X_X

Haha, thanks for giving the feedback though. Even "questionable" feedback can help an artist get introspective to improve. I think it's great that there's so many entries.
