MPT Techy Christmas Compo OPEN!
« on: December 05, 2008, 10:31:56 »
Whoo!

Visit the wobsite and enter!

OK, first up, sorry about the delay -- work and life have been a bit crazy recently. :/ You'll notice that because of that, the theme isn't particularly pretty -- I lazily just 'browned' the theme I made for the Barryvan compo. If anyone wants to do a proper theme, please let me know. I'd love to have something nicer.

Anyway, the compo is now open! You can enter your Christmas-themed pieces at the site. Now, the rules for the compo:

- You must use MODPlug! You can use plugins, samples, goats, anything, as long as it's through OpenMPT.
- You may post-process your work -- for example, to normalise the volume, or to run it through a compressor, or to mix a bit.
- Your entry must be in MP3, OGG, MPTM, IT, XM, S3M, or MOD formats. It's recommended that you use MP3 or OGG, though, so that everyone can hear as closely as possible what you intended.
- The size of your entry must be no larger than 15MB; preferably much smaller. (If hosting your entry is a problem, contact Barry (bvanoudtshoorn) through the Modplug forums.)
- If the round specifies it, your entry should somehow refer back to a common theme, like Christmas, the delights of Pepsi, or that time I spent the entire day unaware that my trousers' zip was undone.
- You may only enter once per round.

Fair enough? Awesome. Now get entering! :D



Thanks to LP for hosting the competition and getting most of it all set up.

Um... You'll have to ask LP. :) He's the one who gave it its name. :D

AFAIK, no, it's not just an electronica compo.

Uh, I believe it was Älskling who gave the name, or perhaps even Harbinger. The term techy comes from making it sound advanced. :) Also biological types of sound could be that. :)

Btw Barry,

I dunno if its easy for you to add, but I don't mind if people upload their song on my website for the duration of the compo and a month or so after.

I think there should be a special "best use of goat" award.

OK, if people want to host their music somewhere for the competition, I'm happy to provide (free!) hosting.

Just send me a PM, and I'll hook you up with FTP details for where you can upload. Alternatively, PM me, email me the track, and I'll upload it for you.

Just a note: You may expect a techy christmas entry from me. :)

Started to work on it yesterday and everything went so well, that I also finished it yesterday. I do need to work on it a bit more, like mixing, but it'll be there. :)

I really wish I could enter this one, but I simply don't have the time. In order to contribute though, I would also be glad to help people who need their pieces hosted. Just PM me.

Also if you need a judge, I'd be glad to help  :D .
