Compo: MnP (Meat 'n Potatoes)
Congratulations to Souperion for winning the last round. As a result, he get's to pick the source for round 122. Here's what he had to say:
"Feel a bit odd having won a round that featured a spirited, upbeat song by making a slower remix, so let's do some Kirby music! Kirby and the Amazing Mirror: Candy Constellation, specifically. It's a real fun piece, one of my favorites from that little gem." - Souperion
GAME: Kirby and the Amazing Mirror (GBA)
SOURCE: Candy Constellation
Deadline: 3rd March @ 1PM
Vote Ends: 12th March @ 1 PM

The goal of Compo:MnP is to promote that "meat and potatoes" conservative approach to remixing: this includes the mood and composition of source tunes. It is up to the remixer to create their own personalization, or to simply give it a sound upgrade. Moreover, the compo is a great opportunity to hone your remixing skills and give video game music the respect that is due. SOME reinterpretation is recommended, but not required.
- Source-Picks are limited to the era of gaming 1984-2006. In other words, Nes/Sega Master to PS2/GC/Xbox 1. I might starting looking at relaxing this rule, to give more leeway in freedom of choice. We'll see how it goes in the upcoming rounds.
- Modifying the Source is fine, so long as it doesn't sound completely separate from its original intent.
- If you're gonna do a genre change, at least make sure the original aspect of the source is not lost.
- Tempo changes are fine, as long as it's not a big change. I'm talking like, going from 80bpm to 140bpm.
- Submissions must be at a maximum of 20mb (keeping in step with ThaSauce's file size max), and submitted as a MP3 file.
- Only 1 entry per participant. Previous winner cannot participate but can submit a BONUS entry.
- Try to avoid making quality-based comments on submissions until after the Round is concluded. It is to avoid a Bias in Votes.
- When picking a source tune, make sure it has a MIDI to make people's lives easier.
- In-game sound FX are permitted, so long as they don't comprise the whole track (i.e. replacing entire MIDI tracks with just sfx)
