Magical Starsign - Bena Rikashi (MnP124)


Compo: MnP (Meat 'n Potatoes)

Congratulations to Wassup Thunder for winning the last round! As a result, he get's to choose this month's MnP source! Here's what he had to say about his pick:

"Here's an obscure tune from my youth! Not many have heard of Magical Starsign, an old RPG on the nintendo DS, but you should hear the track Bena Rikashi, the theme of a bustling city on a wind planet! It's short (only 30 seconds of material), simple, sweet, and gots lots of room for interpretation!" - Wassup Thunder

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.

MnP Instructions/Guidelines

  1. Source-Picks are limited to the era of gaming 1984-2006. In other words, Nes/Sega Master to PS2/GC/Xbox 1. Still not sure, about this one yet. Gonna do a poll to see what community census thinks, in the future. 
  2. Modifying the Source is fine, so long as it doesn't sound completely separate from its original intent. 
  3. If you're gonna do a genre change, at least make sure the original aspect of the source is not lost.
  4. Tempo changes are fine, as long as it's not a big change. I'm talking like, going from 80bpm to 140bpm.
  5. Submissions must be at a maximum of 20mb (keeping in step with ThaSauce's file size max), and submitted as a MP3 file.
  6. Only 1 entry per participant. Previous winner cannot participate but can submit a BONUS entry. 
  7. 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)
