OK, so I basically just don't have the time to fix whatever it is that's causing the bug in the compo system, so you can just vote here. :) Soon after the 26th, I'll get LP to close the thread and we'll know who the winner is. :)

Here are the entries:


Silent Night -- Jojo
ULTRA-BAD 15 MIN PRODUCTION! HARD-LIMITED TO 0dB FOR YOUR LOUDNESS WAR PLEASURE. CHEESY TRACNE. LOOPED. FADE-OUT. SILENT NIGHT. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

O come, O come, Emmanuel -- barryvan
This is one of my favourite carols. (And yes, I know it's not 'techy', but I did use an extremely sophisticated VSTi for it. :D)

Dark December Day -- LPChip
I wanted to do something new for this competition, so I ended up making a drum 'n base/industrial track. This track gave me alot of problems due to so called insufficient CPU. that does affect the track a little bit, but I've given up on fixing that in time. :P
The techy part comes from the sounds used. They are pretty advanced sounding. The christmas part comes form the fact that I remixed both silent night and jingle bells. :)
I hope you enjoy it as much as I have making it. (the tweaking part was where I got it wrong :P)

Sweet Christmas Dreams -- Timinge
I made this just for fun last Saturday (12/13/08) and then saw this compo. I was going to smooth out the rough edges and try to make it sound all "good," but I didn't have time, and since it's not meant to be taken too seriously anyway, I figure that's okay. Enjoy.


Now go forth and cast your votes! You can also comment on the tracks in this thread, if you like. :) Make sure in your comments to indicate which track deserves the 'Best use of goat' award.

This is also how I'd vote.

Do we only vote on one entry using the poll, or put 3 in order?

I'm finding it tough to choose... I just want to get the general voting criteria. As far as I understand the it should be based on a xmas spirit in a techy way, ( as well as the usual creativity, musicality etc.. stuff)..

Or is it happy go lucky voting :P ?

Well, I tried to use the 'Poll expires in x days' feature... So theoretically, when the poll is closed, the voting is closed. :) I think it may be closed now, in fact. So, who's gonna announce the winner. :p
