Acuity: Catchy, lots of trills and automation and details. Great work

sci: Love the cinematic and organic feel that you've developed here. It's a change. I liked it.

johnfn: cinematic? Yes yes yes!

CJthemusicdude - Great harmony, great tones, brilliant melody. Everything pulls together perfectly when the beat comes in.

Forty-Two - Some production glitches, but the best written track in the compo. It nailed the spacious feeling of the images.

Arcana - This just sounds like a space battle and was a lot of fun to listen to.

well, i missed the chat, so you know what that means.............


dusthillguy: dat first half is just awesome, second half shows serious guitar skills! what kind of guitar is it?
ducks: This... is amazing. It is so tasty. Thanks.
betaknight94: very nice with the bass and sound effects! welcome to OHC :D
A-zu-ra: very nice and relaxing. Good stuff.
CJthemusicdude: I don't remember the exact day when CJ became awesome, but i think there was a moment something like 20 OHCs ago he just started dumping these really pristine epic songs on us. keep it up.
Somasis: very nice, and quite reminiscent of Ducks' entry actually! Ducks x Somasis collab next time plz.
Acuity: There's the acuity style I've come to know :D quite groovy, nice pitchbends.
Tomapella: Really gets moving around 1:24, although I'm not going to lie, it doesn't sound spacey at all. It sounds like some epic adventure through the grasslands or something (all dem orchestral elements, I suspect). Sounds great though, love the piano solo.
sci: whoahgh, awesome soundscape, love it. crazy formant thing. fantastic. violin is a great touch but the formant is just yes.
atmospherium: dude, heavy metal in the OHC. it's been a while. suggestion to crank up the levels on those drums a bit. otherwise good stuff.
obScene: dude, I love chrono cross, so you're automatically going to win points for that. I like it a lot, please do more.
Forty-Two: you know, this reminds me a little of dire dire docks! something about the somewhat forlorn mood. I like the repeated notes though I think they're a little loud in comparison with the other stuff. clipping though D:
Zedd: yes... yes... good snare... piano is really muddled... dat drop is as unexpected as it is interesting, so nice job there. pretty cool! nice convincing sounding dubstep growls.
easynam: quite neat but also short :X. liked where it was going though.
DDRKirby(ISQ): that was cool! would love to hear more stuff in this style. (i really like BT!)
blastron: very cool! nice job even getting the harmonies in there. though if i were to complain, the whole arrangement - verse -> climax - kinda sounds like some other songs that i've heard you do. i understand that the ohc time constraints dont give you a lot of leeway though. it's good stuff.
Arcana: that was pretty nice and groovy.

I think I was in chat for the rest.

Acuity - very detailed with the multiple automations and tracks. the slides are a great touch. like the chord progression and melodies. nice harmonization also. great work.
DDRKirby(ISQ) - using beepmap is a unique idea given that the theme was images. beepmap already gives a space-like sound, so given that the images for this theme represent space, it adds even more in using beepmap audio. also amazing work overall.
MandraSigma - amazing mix. the poly/porta arp fits well in the background. like the melodies and chord progression also.
Misael.K - the synthesized vocals add a great sound, the consonants have a great rhythm. the ending sounds similar to a delay lama maybe.
johnfn - sounds very complete, great effects. great work.
