One Hour Compo celebrates it's 400th round on Thursday June 9th at 9:00PM EST! Don't miss it!

Compo is a slang word for "composition competition" commonly used by the arrangement community. It is derrived from the demoscene competitions by the same name. Contrary to this, compos are less of a competition and more of an excerise in composition abilites. Each compo has it's own unique format and guidelines and while some are as short as 1 hour, others can last anywhere from a month, to a few months. It's important to remember that the primary purpose of compos are to hone your skills and abilites by working within, sometimes very constricting, guidelines. These techiniques have proven essential to the growth of countless musicians.

Remember: the only way to lose a compo, is to not participate.

Might and Magic - Cave 2 Theme (PRC347)  Active

2 days, 23 hours ago

Source: Might and Magic: Darkside of Xeen - Cave 2 Theme (WIN)

"I decided to go with an oldie for me, which is the cave 2 theme from Might and Magic: Darkside of Xeen. It was a humorous rpg that didnt take itself very seriously. Lots of truly goofy voice acting and some pretty memorable(if a bit short) tracks. This one is a loop so you'll have to get creative with it ;)

After uploading, please check if your song plays and can be downloaded and played without problems.
Only upload MP3 Files.

It is not necessary to use ThaSauce. You can upload the song anywhere you want, but I must have a download link. So if you use SoundCloud, don't forget to allow downloads, otherwise your song does not count as an entry or bonus mix. I will still use ThaSauce as a possible place to submit songs and upload all the songs to the ThaSauce page to have the songs at one central place.

If ThaSauce is down, please also submit the song somewhere else with a download link and post the link in the Ocremix Thread.

The winner of this round may select the source for PRC349 which is not the round after this one, but the round after the next round.

Star Ocean meets F-Zero??? (MnP72)  Active

1 week, 4 days ago

Star Ocean "Cutting Edge of Notion" & F-Zero "Mute City"

"Cutting Edge of Notion from Star Ocean 3. This is the main battle theme from the game, so it's pretty upbeat and purposeful. It's got several different parts to it so hopefully it will be fun to cut it up to be pieces of the mashup for this round."
-Dextatic


"F-Zero MUTE MOTHERF*#(ING MUTE CITY) dunno why but the last one kind of got me on this, and plus I've been wanting a reason to play with the track for a long time now.
Sorry, couldn't help myself but this song just gets me pumped. Plus, it isn't nearly as cliche as Big Blue ;)"
