The People's Remix Competition 89

PRCv4-11

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

Heathens! PRC starts early! Actually, I'm going to be hanging around Manchester for this afternoon, and odds are I might not return until the early hours of the morning. Either way, let's get to business.

PRC88 had a very quantitive turnout thanks to the use of some Lunar coverage. And in spite of the tight vote, you guys wanted me to pick another source tune. I've had so many thoughts in mind, yet in the end, it all came down to this. We need more kemonobitos flying spaceships, right?

I didn't actually start actively playing Nintendo 64 videogames until last summer, when I went through a fair selection of titles and came to see how they shaped up. Yet it's this title that stuck out to me like a sore thumb - it may be simple to the point that much of the game is flying from point A to point B but the diversity in the way you get there thanks to the branching paths made it all worthwhile.

I also really like the music score in spite of djpretzel openly criticising the sound chip (see his description for V to the X Power) - technology aside, I thoguht much of it was well written and emphasised well enough for the respective areas that we're in. It may have been a radical departure from the original title's rock/orchestra blends but I still thought it worked.

I chose this song because it was shown to be one of the more easily identifiable tracks in the score as well as what can be seen to be a more frequent reoccurance than most themes emphasized in the series to date. It also has that kind of Spanish combat feel to it, which seems good enough for me. I'm sure there's plenty of room for interpretation, so I hope to see some good stuff come out of this ;)

I hope this goes down well, and I hope I come out of Manchester alive and well. But enough thoughts about the day ahead...

GOOD LUCK!

Yes, yes and yes.

and then yes.

SF64 is one of those games I can positively affirm that they have been completely obliterated by me. I hope I can find some time to give this source a try.

Ugh... Not liking this. It certainly is okay music, but I'm not feeling anything that could be rearranged or a creative spark. I'm probably a no show for this one.

hmmmmm.... i'll probably do another orchestral mix.

Yikes... I haven't being able to mix anything at all this week, and I dunno if I'll be able to come up with something today either, been too busy. SHAME ON ME!

BUT... Last week I got my new string samples and I decided to try them on this song. It's more or less a midi rip, so you might add it as a bonus, or not.

I love my new samples though ^_^

Unfortunately, it is a MIDI rip so we can't allow it access into the competition. I do praise your string samples though.

The mixing stage is over. The voting stage is here! To vote, you send me a PM and in that PM you place the three mixes from first to third. Contestants don't need to place their own songs as they will automatically get a first place vote. The vote of the winner of PRC88 (me) counts twice. Your deadline is Tuesday, March 13th at 4:59AM EST. The winner gets to choose the source material for PRC90!

Okay, since submissions are over...what was with the modulation in this source tune? I'm pretty sure most of it was in F minor except that middle verse, so that's what I went with and just threw out the rest...actually didn't even look at the MIDI beyond that part and just winged it. Is that what you did too Xela?

Also, this song basically having no bass aside from the timpani was...interesting. >.>

Nice job, Leah! You've made some good leaps and bounds across the community in the past two months, and I hope to see it continue as your portfolio continues to expand. Anyway, PRC90 has you picking the source tune, so when you've made your choice, please send it over to me via PM.

Thank you all very much, and I should see you all again this Friday.
