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.

People's ReMixing Competition

Zelda - Zora's Domain (PRC345)  Active

5 days, 1 hour ago

Source: Zelda Twilight Princess - Zora's Domain (WII)
Note: it is allowed to use the Zora Domain source from a different Zelda game (Breath of the Wild, Ocarina of Time)

"So, I've been playing a lot of Breath of the Wild. And by a lot, I mean about 4 to 6 hours a day. So, in an effort to push me back into mixing again, my source pick is Zora's Domain! The BotW version is pretty similar to Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess' version, but with some extras in the background and a chord change in the second half. I chose the Twilight Princess version because the MIDI was more accurate than the OoT and a BotW version doesn't exist yet (otherwise, I would have picked it, lol).

I do have a question for you, Bundeslang. My plan is to use the BotW version for my bonus mix. Seeing how similar all 3 versions of the song are, I don't see a problem extending the source to all 3 versions. What do you think about letting everyone else pick the version they want to cover?"
(Dewey Newt)

All three versions of the source are allowed. So feel free to use the Zora you want. One remix of Zora's Domain already exist at Ocremix, agains it's a multiple source mix. Check it out: http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR03463

Deadline is Wednesday April 5th 2017, 10:59 AM ThaSauce Time (16:00 UTC, 18:00 GMT).

Check the following site for the rules:

Check the Ocremix thread for more information (you can post questions there):
** follows later when the round starts.

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.

The winner of this round may select the source for PRC347 which is not the round after this one, but the round after the next round.
