ReMixing With the Stars (RWS)
ReMixing With the Stars is intended to give beginning remixers some support, encouragement, and mentoring in their quest to become great, and as a sidenote, to become posted remixers. Beginners are mentored by experienced remixers to push their abilities to new heights and submit collaborative works according to the theme of the round.

This round's secret ingredient is Togu Audio Line's TAL-NoiseMaker! Get it at http://kunz.corrupt.ch/products/tal-noisemaker (32 and 64-bit, Windows or Mac).
TAL-Noisemaker is a subtractive synth with several customizable oscillators, filters, and LFO's. It has a distinctive sound that can easily be used in almost any type of electronic music, and has a lot of room for creativity in sound synthesis.
For this round, each participant should either:
A) Remix one or more sources from game(s) based on TV show(s), OR
B) Remix any source as if it were to be the theme song for a new cartoon based on that game. (Lyrics optional but recommended.)
If taking option A, please follow the usual OCR rule that you can't remix a source that was itself originally from a TV show or other medium. Also, it must be based on a TV show directly; for instance, Disney's Aladdin is out even though there was also a TV show based on the movie, because the games are also based on the movie and not the show.
Slightly different signup rules this time: The signup period has a hard deadline. No further signups will be accepted after that time (unless you want to do a bonus mix).
Stars, when you sign up, choose any one source from any Sonic the Hedgehog game. Spinoffs are fine, but no "SEGA All-Stars" or Mario & Sonic games.
Novices, when you sign up, choose any one source from any Mario game. Again, any game with Mario in the title is fine other than Mario & Sonic.
If you want to be flexible about being a Star or a Novice, choose one source of each type.
When the round begins, I will randomly pair Stars and Novices. Your job will be to create one remix using both sources. You can include other sources in brief roles if you choose.
So while I'm off watching sparks, flames, and chunks of metal flying off titanium killing machines, you get to make music about it. Choose from one of the following:
A) Use one or more sources from games about robots, OR
B) Use any source and make something industrial or mechanical sounding, assuming you've even read this far and haven't already decided on Mega Man.
This round's secret ingredient is ToneBytes Bleep'!
Bleep' is a VSTi synthesizer that simulates the sound of the Commodore SID chip. It has an interface that's simple to understand while retaining many powerful options.
Please check the ocremix.org thread for rules and other details.
