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.

Souperion can enter with a bonus song and has a double vote.

Welcome to the voting stage

The mixing stage is over. This round has 3 songs and 1 bonus mix by Souperion. The following people compete against each other:

Hleet

TheVideoGamer

WassupThunder

 

To vote, do the following:

Visit https://compo.thasauce.net/rounds/view/PRC446 and listen to all the entries

Scroll to the form at the bottom of the screen or click PM.

Fill in the entries from first to third in the ThaSauce form or fill in your top 3.

State a reasoning for it.

Participants are encouraged to vote and leave feedback. They get a 3 point bonus, but they are not allowed to vote for their own track. They only need to fill in their top two (and can use the third spot to select the bonus mix they liked the most). 

Always look in this thread to find out who's the winner of the round after the voting stage instead of only looking at ThaSauce for the results.

Souperionhas a vote that counts twice.

 

You have until Monday May 23rd 2022 10:59 AM ThaSauce time (11:00 UTC, 12:00 GMT) to vote.

 

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

2: (remixer B )

3: (remixer C )

It's results time

Souperion posted a bonus mix.

 

TheVideoGamer got 6 points and gets the last place wooden spoon.

WassupThunder gathered 10 points and second place.

And the winner of PRC444 is Hleet with 11 points.

Hleet, you are the winner. It was almost a perfect win. You may pick a source for PRC448. Send the source to me (with a MID/MP3 file, otherwise send a second source with a MID file) by PM, other options are PM me @ ThaSauce or by e-mailing to bambombim@gmail.com (I prefer a PM @Ocremix). Send your source as fast as you can, but before next Wednesday (1 June 2022), 11:00 AM ThaSauce time (18:00 UTC, 19:00 GMT).

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):

And i forgot to vote, how wonderful lol.

Oh well congratulations Hleet, well earned win!

I'll post some feedback below:

Hleet - Some sick metal vibes here, that is some powerful beats, and some seriously good guitar work. It sounds quite convincing to say it's done on software. If it's real, then that's even more impressive. The guitars are great in this, totally seems like a plausible band cover. The drums are a little, different, is probably the word. I like the sound of the drums, they don't seem to have much velocity changes, it's very much a mechanical sounding kit, especially for rock music. I could maybe see more of a case for metal, but this is more or less hard rock, so the difference is noticeable. Big fan of the trumpet lines though, great way to add depth to a simple piece, it really works well. Ending was a little abrupt in my opinion, i would have expected more of an ending, however i did love what i hear, and the whole metal approach was lovely. I can see why people voted for you, this was great. Well done!

Wassup Thunder - Longest one of the bunch. I notice with short sources, it does become a bit harder to remix, because you essentially have to expand upon something already short. I do dig the rock and orchestral arrangements in this, really adds a cinematic depth to the piece. Interesting way of transcribing the melody, it works super well in this context, the whole thing is very action adventure like, it's great. The synths bring it into eurobeat territories, that was really cool. Mixing is a little stagnant, it could do with some polish, specifically in the orchestration. It's almost like the orchestra is fighting for the front, causing the drums and guitars to get pushed back. When the orchestra takes a backseat it works wonders, but that only comes at certain points. Still though, even with it's polishing and clean-up, it was still an amazing remix. I really dig that guitar solo in the middle, not present in the original, but man it's soo fitting to the piece. Love all your original titbits too, this was just a lovely remix. Well done!

Souperion - Really cool computer noises in the beginning, this is not what i was expecting for a remix of Mega Man, but man i like it when people go in unique directions. Really digging the strings and piano, really captures the emotion of the source, in comparison to the energy. The sound effects are a lovely touch, i love the attention to detail like that. I also love how you've built the dynamic from something small into something huge. The ending was a great climax to finish the whole thing off. Shame it only lasts for like 30 seconds, i feel that could have been utilized more. I know it's only 3 minutes, but that idea could work for like a 5 minute piece. I was struggling to find anything really to critique, besides maybe the occasional polish here and there, because the mix was great, and the idea was just lovely. Well done!

Sorry that i didn't vote, i'll try and be more focused next round! Glad you guys had fun!
