The competition begins! (Or… has already… but still!)

Hello everyone!

Well, yesterday, the ‘Mega Man & Sonic the Hedgehog – Blue Bomber, Blue Blur Collision Competition‘ began on the OverClocked ReMix forums!

As I mentioned in a previous post, entrants were split up into teams of 6 – one team representing the Blue Bomber (Mega Man), and one team representing the Blue Blur (Sonic the Hedgehog). Entrants then, basically, have one week to combine their source and their opponent’s source into one, cohesive remix.

I’m on Team Blue Blur. 🙂

My source tune for this competition is from Sonic the Hedgehog 3 – it’s the Chrome Gadget Zone.

Matchups were posted the other day, and my first matchup is between me and jefepatronjoshi, who picked Burst Man!

Mixes for this first round are due Sunday, at 4 P.M. (Eastern Daylight Time). A little while afterward, all of the mixes will be archived and available for download in the first post of the competition’s main thread!

Once the mixes are officially posted, I’ll probably upload my entry to my SoundCloud page and my Last.fm artist page. I’d also be happy to post a link to a download of the .WAV file for my entry, if you want that.

Either way, I’m really looking forward to everyone’s entries for this round! 🙂

Thanks for reading!

Practicing EQ

Hi there!

Well, in my last post, I mentioned a music remix competition.

So, I thought it’d be a good idea to practice – especially in my weakest area: production.

So, I downloaded a MIDI to practice on from VGMusic and reinstrumentated it and then tried to balance out all of the sounds of the new instruments – EQ’ing everything so that it could be heard clearly and so nothing wouldn sound ‘boxy’.

Here’s the result.

I was trying to go for an ’80’s sound’.

But that snare is so hard to get right. 😦

Full credit goes to King Meteor for sequencing the MIDI!

And thanks for reading / listening!

What’s up?

Hey everyone!

*checks date

Only 3 years since I’ve posted anything here… not too long…

So, what’s up?

Well… one thing I’ve been up to recently is entering a video game music remix competition on the OverClocked ReMix forums, titled ‘Mega Man & Sonic the Hedgehog – Blue Bomber Blue Blur Collision Competition‘!

For this remix competition, once it begins, 12 participants will be divided into teams of 6 – one team representing the Blue Bomber (Mega Man), and one team representing the Blue Blur (Sonic the Hedgehog). Initially, each remixer picked 3 sources from each series (since they’ll be divided into teams later, as mentioned above). If you’re interested in who picked what, here’s a list of songs each remixer picked! Once teams have been formed, each remixer will be pitted against a remixer on the other team, each week for six weeks.

I initially entered on the Blue Bomber’s team, but it turned out several others wanted to be on the Blue Bomber’s team as well!

So, in order to balance the teams, and in deference to my friends who love to mix Mega Man, I, and therex, gladly agreed to switch to the Blue Blur’s side.

I’m not entirely sure how DarkeSword will determine teams in the end… but…

Either way, regardless of team, I’m just excited to remix!

I’ve entered under my forum name, Mr. L, but I’m hoping I can tag my entries with my Last.fm artist name, which is Warp Star Knight; I plan to upload my entries there for anyone and everyone to listen to / download them if they wish (same with my SoundCloud page)!

Thanks for reading!

I do hope to have something for you to listen to soon! 😀
