Seems like this has been going on for a while. I only just joined the fun last month.
From what I gather, it moves as quick as each comp does. When one finishes, the next one begins.

Great news, well I'll definitely be sticking around and getting involved.  I've been making music for ages now but have lacked a proper focus.  Getting involved in game music seems like great fun =)

And @8thMode, where are your string sounds from? they are amazing.
They're from Spitfire's Loegria http://www.spitfireaudio.com/albion-ii-loegria.html

I love your entry btw, high energy awesomeness! And I love the choice of dorian in the alert phase, makes it so unique!

Ooooh I'm gonna have to get hold of that at some point, does seem very pricey but you're definitely getting what you pay for there! Is there a lot of flexibility in the velocity settings on it? I've only recently got into using Kontakt instruments and Im finding a lot of disparity between different instruments in terms of how the samples trigger.

And thank you for the feedback =) It goes without saying that I really love your entry as well, there are so many subtle elements like those little plucked flourishes (dulcimer or harpsichord?) along with the swelling strings really made for a rich sound.  I got a distinctly middle-eastern vibe from it if that was intentional?

There's a lot of flexibility with the modwheel, which allows you do swell and fade, and made it sound less static. And there's different mic positions/Instruments/articulations etc...
But that's just the one I chose. There's a ton of string libraries (If you think this one's expensive give LASS or Symphobia a google. Wink Hand Money Right )
And yeah it's a dulcimer, from the same company actually. (Except it's only $2...)
And I'd been playing some Uncharted 3, so I guess the middle eastern flavor crept in!

Why hello there!

I'll admit, I can't say I've approached this challenge totally seriously. Why? I was reminded of.. A certain moment, from my youth. It may be the most terrifying shock I'll ever experience.

This is more of a "tribute", to a certain Piano, in Super Mario 64.

I've had a thing for swing and fadeouts recently

SPACE PIRATE
https://soundcloud.com/bleakprospects/space-pirate

Just started with a vamp and added weird stuff. Have fun.

EDIT: Forgot the bullshit. Um, you're like, a pirate. But in space. And you're collecting your loot when you get chased by the space police. Yeah something like that.


I also made this (unfinished) entry a couple of night ago, but I kind of ran away with it and lost focus:

Warning: This song uses the sound of phone interference and a phone ringing.  It's only a part of the song Smiley

I just listened to this. I think it's really really awesome except for the synth at the beginning (and it comes in later as well) just replace that with something more like the main lead and you're golden!

Thanks a lot!  Regarding the intro section, I actually played around with different sounds and wasn't totally satisfied with it myself.  Now that I have a second opinion, I'll see if I can't play around with it some more before the deadline.  Maybe some live electric guitar would work well with that melody.  Stay tuned...

Imagine getting a phone call from the future. It could be a mission. It could be a warning. One thing's for sure: what follows is a frantic shift.

Relinked my original post to a new version of the song that uses a relaxed piano melody in the verse.  Works a bit better to emphasize the shift to frantic.

A last-minute-entry! It didn't end up to be very good as I started it today from literally nothing.

http://soundcloud.com/redapricorn/a-not-so-frantic-shift/s-f30Is

Sooo.... the track features 'Normal Section' (00:01 - 00:20), 'Transition' (00:20 - 00:30), and two different 'difficulty levels' (00:32 - 01:14 and 1:36 - 2:18).

Just to clarify things Tongue

I've got something in the works right now, but I'm not sure that I'll finish it in time.  I'm not asking for an extension, I'll try to get it in before you call it, but if I don't get it in time, I'll still post it up here. 

Either way, great entries so far.  I look forward to seeing all the feedback and doing the voting.

Mine & Zack Parrish's collab entry:

I think the title says it all. Our collab was split between at the point of the frantic shift! ENJOY!

Just in time..., no... I don't mean Justin Bieber Time.... *gag*

Justin Bieber has been famous for, almost 3 years? The jokes weren't funny to begin with, they're certainly not funny now. Discrimination against Bieber, 3 years on, is as pointless as cussing at a rock. He's one of many teen-boy-idols that come and go, it's been going on for decades.. Get over it.

*can't stand Bieber jokes anymore*
