One Hour Compo - Round 642 (OHC642)
Jan 28, 2021 Arcana
Under the Pale Lord
Three Wolves Howling At The Moon
JH Sounds for the really really catchy melody and the really satisfying chorus. Great tonal resolution and harmonizing with the voice there.
IO because the beat here was just so cool, so much positional crunch going on. I thought it was great.
Lots of other great songs this week that I liked. In no particular order:
Dex, Atmospherium, MisaelK, nukage, ashka, DDRKirbyISQ, Raffazam, Elias
Feb 02, 2021 Raffazam
DDRKirby(ISQ) - I'm impressed by the depth and "complexity" you can make in only one hour!
ashka - some really nice textures and a cool progression trough the track

@Starla - Sweet, i don't think i saw, from where i was from, but nonetheless awesome.
@Souperion - Mario music, really lol....
@Ethansight - New synth to try out, that's been sitting on my DAW for a while now lol. Super wobble indeed!
@Arcana - The synth does not want to sit still haha...
@Atmospherium - Bit untz....
@Suzums - Hey you got the reference!
@Misael.K - No worries, it wasn't a long one this time haha...
@CotMM - Haha, clever....
@Arcana - You could say the same with wolfs....
@Starla - 3:31 is long to you?
@Everyone - Thanks for the kind words!
TheVideoGamer - I didn't explicitly use any wolf sounds, largely because this one is old. I had an idea for something pretty, based on the sparkle in the images, however the idea of Wolf's seemed to really go against that. I never think of wolf's as cute and cuddly, but not harmful either. I don't know, i had found a unused project, that i thought sounded really cool to beef up and work into a track. Honestly the end result seems to the fit the idea really well. It's a balance between techno and ambient, with a lot of psychedelic acid sections. I like it a lot, it's good.
cotmm68030 - That waveform scares me lol. Nonetheless i love the idea here, i think it sounds great. Bassline was way too much for me, and i could do with louder beats, but still i think it sounds great. Good job!
DrumJ8 - Wow this is not the DrumJ8 i know. I really dig the creepy cinematic elements of this. It's very fitting, and works super well for a horror movie. Also love the change of pace, when you add the chiptune elements and the 707 beat. I think this is my favourite of yours pretty much in a long time. Well done!
DarkShadow - Always pushing the speed and sound barrier, as you do lol....
Raffazam - Welcome new guy! For your first submission i love this. Beautiful soft guitars ontop of lush pads. It's very spacious and atmospheric, i think it's just lovely. I do like the wolf sounds in the background as well. If i have to be honest, it's only 2 chords, playing the same thing over and over, but the sounds were lovely. Well done anyways!
Mushrooman - Another newbie! Oh boy this was GROOOVY. I've not seen chiptune make me dance in such a way before. Chiptune techno, is a thing, and man, as much as it's simple (And the wolf howls were loud at parts), i couldn't stop vibing. Well done!
Souperion - The orchestra sound pallet is nice as always from you. Such a beautiful range of string sounds. This was just perfect. Well done!
Elias561 - Another nicely done chiptune track. It's a bit uneven, and the melody doesn't seem grounded, but the rest was done very nicely. Good job!
Suzumebachi - I thought you were gonna full Nukage on me then. I am in love with them chords. In fact, beyond in love. This is exceptionally well produced. Awesome work!
Nukage - Another fine Dubs and Wubs Nukage production. Awesome as always!
Wassup Thunder - Interesting direction for you. Definitely liked the melodic ideas here. Not sure if it sounds like Eurobeat, but it could just be me. Melodies were awesome though. Well done!
Ashka - I think your far too talented to compo. Like.....just...how. Why are you soo good, every track is always just incredible. I was having to agonise between you and DDR, however you won me over, with the rich harmony oof....
GLL - Nice ravey vibes. This reminds me of that Candyfloss dance hit that was around in the mid 2000's back in the day. I do think your voice could blend better here, it seems to be masked. However though, your piano playing is...just...incredible. Well done!
NickC - NickC is the master of distortion lol. Very heavy, and very nicely done. That drum groove, is soo good. Love this a lot, well done!
ethansight - Gorgeous reverb. Whatever reverb that is....i want it, it's amazing. The whole thing is just pretty. It's very lacking though, i could have done with more, like a beat or something. However i was distracted the by the amazing reverb. Well done!
DDRKirby(ISQ) - Another prime example of someone being far too talented for compo. Now i really don't know if i prefer you or Ashka, because both tracks are....i wanna say the best i've heard all week, they're just incredible (I literally had a hard time deciding). Like SERIOUSLY, HOW DID YOU DO THIS IN 1 HOUR.....
Atmospherium - Very heavy and industrial like, i dig the vocal work here. I do like the pauses as well, for vocal breaks, that's a neat idea. Long story short, this is nicely done. Well done!
Arcana - Nice melodies here, very simple and effective. The ending gets a little off key, and a little of sync, but the intro works super well. Good job!
InvisibleObserver - Another wolf howl used, i think i've heard it before, in a previous OHC submission from this round. Sound design was super eerie and creepy. Not sure about the beat though, i thought manipulating the wolf noises was enough for me. If anything i think the beat is a bit much. Still like the idea lot though. Good job!
Misael.K - I think your one of the only tracks to go into a happy key. I love the drums and the melody here. That melody is just...sooo cute and amazing. Well done!
JH Sounds - Really like the vocals here and the backing track. Nicely done!
LunacyEcho - I find this rather humorous. I don't want to label it as "Kids Youtube Music" because i find that a bit insulting, but it does remind me a bit. I do think though, this is amazingly well done. The melody is fitting, and the instruments are realistic and cute. Long story short, well done!
Dex - Awesome rocking vibes as usual. I do like the strings in this one, makes it almost "patriotic" and adventurous. I enjoyed this a lot, well done!
