Hello everyone and Welcome to the People's Remix Competition!

In PRC456 it was TheVideoGamer who got the win. The source has been picked, it was to late for last round but now it's time for this source (the second send source will be used for a later round).

 

Source: Shining Force II (GENESIS) Lively Town

The deadline is Wednesday December 14th 2022 at 10:59 am ThaSauce time (18:00 UTC, 19:00 GMT), check the link https://compo.thasauce.net/rounds/view/PRC458 for the exact time left. Make sure that the song is uploaded to ThaSauce or that there’s a download link posted in this thread.

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.

The winner of this round may select the source for PRC461.

Everyone can enter. TheVideoGamer can enter only with a bonus song and has a double vote.

 

You can find the full rules list at this page as well.

 

GOOD LUCK!

Oh my Water Goddess Mitula!! Shining Force II is soooo good and Motoaki Takenouchi is such a fantastic composer. I also would like some _sleep_ in my life but if I can't find time for this round what is even the point. :grin:

Welcome to the voting stage

The mixing stage is over. This round has 2 songs and 1 bonus by TheVideoGamer. The following people compete against each other:

Souperion

Evktalo

 

To vote, do the following:

Visit https://compo.thasauce.net/rounds/view/PRC458 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 2.

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 should fill in their first place and leave the second and third box empty. It doesn't affect the results.

TheVideoGamer has a double vote.

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.

You have until Friday December 30th 2022 10:59 AM ThaSauce time (11:00 UTC, 12:00 GMT) to vote. There's extra time.
If you vote by PM make sure that your top 2 is clear. I prefer something like this:

(To)

(Subject)

PRC ## Vote

(Message):

1: (remixer A )

2: (remixer B )

(reasoning)

Thank you sggod89 !!

Originally I think the restriction of "no OCR ReMixed tunes in PRC" was to highlight more obscure tunes and perhaps get more variety to OCR eventually due to compo -> submissions. I support this, but I think other things are now more important for PRC... So these days I would allow those more popular sources again, perhaps that would add life and interest to the compo!!

I do think it's a good idea to not have the same source over and over again. The one-year limit sounds all right to me!

The "rematch" idea sounds fun but hard to manage!

If we could get participation and voting up that would be great I think!

PRC was quite popular in the early days, when forum activity was a bigger thing. It made sense to pick sources that were less popular to get more exposure for the sources themselves. But I'm now thinking maybe it would be good for the competition if more well known familiar sources would bring attention to the competition.

It's results time

Souperion ends with 4 points and receives the last place wooden spoon.

And the winner of PRC457 is Evktalo with 6 points.

Evktalo, you are the winner. You may pick a source for PRC461. Send the new 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 before next Wednesday (11 January 2023), 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):

https://compo.thasauce.net/rounds/view/PRC458 for the votes and comments.

 

PRC Round 459 is already happening.

I think it was more to discourage duplicate sources, rather than to encourage originality. I'm also not sure if this is the reason why people are not entering. It could be just because not many people know about it as much. However that being said, this might open the pathway for more freedom in choosing sources, so i'm embracing it. It might work.

Also congrats to Evktalo, i need to catch up on my voting, there's so many rounds i'm missed!

Evktalo - Really nice laid back sound. Great beats and bass. Sounds like it has some cool slides, that belong to a western, even though it's a synth piece. The wonky melody was a lovely addition. There's a lot of the original source that has been taken away in favour of the melody. If you get a chance to expand on this, adding other elements from the piece, would really add a touch of sparkle and atmosphere to the whole thing. But what i heard was lovely, minus the abrupt end. Well done!

Souperion - Really liking the key change and the melody, it's also kind of laid back, maybe a bit more happy. I love the guitar work in this, really gives it a change of pace. Some of the sounds can be a little muffled, but nothing like a touch of mixing could elevate this. You said you scraped this together, so i am aware this was done in short notice. Still though, sounds lovely, really vibrant and you know...lively lol. Well done!
