I'm in! Would prefer XM to IT, but will enter anyway just as long as we're free to choose genres..


Then change the song to XM :P

As for the genres, I'm not so sure it will be possibe to choose any... There will be a limitation in the samples, but if you're able to break them (which is part of the objective in this compo) then by all means, do so :)

When I finished the samplepack. I have about 4 samples ready now, but I want to add about 4 to 8 to get more variety and give more possibilities.

Don't worry though, I plan to give a long deadline, with option to stop earlier if everyone finished their track earlier.

Okay, sounds fine. I assume it's not too long before it starts then.

I have a samplepack now. The samplepack currently is in HQ, and goes into a 7.80 mb big .IT file, which is rarred to 3.69 MB.

Is this acceptable for everyone? Or shall I reduce the quality and bring it down to somewhere around 1 MB?

if you do make it smaller, could you supply both the full quality and the low quality version?

Well, its not impossible to do, but I want it to sound equally to everyone, so I'm not sure if I'll do it.

Don't count on it. Not because I'm too lazy (which I actually am :P ) but because I don't find it fair to those that can't download/upload the big file.

I'm merelly finding out if there is someone that will have problems downloading the song, or thereafter upload it.

Note, that if required, I can make something to allow uploading.

First, is anyone on dialup? I certaintly am not (anymore). I personally think that if you can Rar it down 3.7, even Dialuppers can download it (I always did.) Plus intentional downsampling is unforgiveable. In my opinion.

indeed, i downoladed quite a lot when i was on dialup, and 3.7mb isnt any bigger than an mp3, plus if everyone does a sample cleanup, the pack wont be as big.
but if there is a lq pack, would just want the hq pack  so i could replace the instruments for my own listening (or for a later release), even if i submitted it using the lq samples.

So it may seem like I'm joining this one. Spent about an hour last night and created - for the first time in quite a while - a piece longer than 10 seconds.

Also, I'm getting a certain flow of ideas which I want to try out again. Suitable mood for a compo period.

When on dialup, if I really wanted some file of 4 Mb, it was no problem. I went for coffee or something.
Although I agree on trying to have the same circumstances for every contestor, very noble, in practice however many equality stays an illusion, because of everybody's different hard- and software. The tools to handle the material.
So if LPChip decides to offer both a lq and a hq version, I suggest, that the ones that can afford to load the hq version, feel obliged to heighten up their threshold for quality, so before they feel, it's a succeeded piece.
