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.

Battletoads - Turbo Tunnel 2 (PRC349)  Active

1 week, 6 days ago

Source: Battletoads - Turbo Tunnel Part 2

I got a request to cover a Battletoads song from my brother, so I'm picking the bike section of the Turbo Tunnel for this round! I played the SNES version of this game growing up, and man... This game was unforgiving. The Turbo Tunnel was the furthest any of my brothers, cousins, or I ever got. I used to think after the level was beaten, the rest of the levels would be unfinished and glitchy since nobody was going to get passed that level. We always played 2 player too, which made it much more difficult. My brother and I did beat the game finally, using an emulator and save states. It was hard even using those! Beating it and seeing the rest of the levels was awesome, though.

Mazedude has a medley of Battletoads with this tune in it, but no individual mixes on the site, so a good tune to cover in PRC! The MIDI I got was in pretty bad shape, mixing is not good at all. All of the notes are there, though, and I've tried to correct all the errors I heard. Forgive me if there are some wrong notes here and there!

Check the Ocremix thread for more information (you can post questions there):
http://ocremix.org/community/topic/45778-prc349-time-to-put-the-turbo-on-in-this-tunnel-battletoads/

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 PRC351 which is not the round after this one, but the round after the next round.
