OLRmageddon

'SUP, BITCHES? We took a six month hiatus to learn that sometimes, change isn't for the better! And thus, OLRmageddon has returned from the grave to give you that delicious remix-y goodness you've missed in the past!

However, some notable adjustments:
  • only the winner will be posted to the archive. And hopefully it will be done on the 1st of the month so there won't be a stupid backlog.
  • Voting has returned to normal - no weird categories or confusing instructions. Whatever mix you think is best, vote for it!
  • Also, to any new guys, we've reduced the 25 required posts to only 10! The 'submit a mix' rule still applies too, so either enter the contest or get to know OLR to be able to vote!
  • XO'S CHALLENGE: during certain months, I'll issue a challenge usually along with the theme that you can do for additional points (think of it as another bonus you can do). If you do a good enough job, more points for you! And some challenges may even bring greater rewards, but you'll have to wait and see what those end up being!


So with that all said, the theme is...


Bonus round: find your favorite Rule 34 Sonic fanart!

That's right; Sonikku za Hejjihoggu! Any song from the Sonic series is fair game! From the original to the spin-offs to the trainwrecks they release nowadays!

YOUR BONUS is...Rings, Springs, and Emeralds, oh my!

And what does that exactly entail? Well, if you include at least three (3) sound effects from the Sonic series in your mix, you'll get the bonus! Simple enough, righ?

Exclamation XO'S CHALLENGE Exclamation

Oh, but what's this? Our first challenge! If your mix is nothing BUT samples from Sonic, you'll win the challenge for this month! The prize this time is double the bonus points! That means right from the start you could have 4 whole points on your mix! Sounds like a pretty good deal to me! Just make sure you properly articulate where and what the sounds are in your mix. I don't want to miss giving you your well-deserved points!

EDIT: vindkast brought up a good question! You may sample the original music from any Sonic game, and splice and dice it to fit whatever your means are. Just make sure to point out what you did in case you mangle it into something unrecognizable! Obviously preference is for early Sonic, but anything goes!

...are you still with me? GOOD.

Arrow Mixing begins when you read this.
Exclamation Mixing ends on June 26th at 11:59 PM EST (8:59 PM for the PST-ers).
Arrow Voting begins as soon as the songs are uploaded to the site.
Exclamation Voting ends on June 30th at 11:59 PM EST.
dump truck Rinse & repeat.

Let's Get Retarded, HA!

Is the bonus still required, or can you submit a Sonic song without the bonus too? Not that it would be too much of a hassle to add some Sonic sounds, I just want to know.

Bonus is NOT required.

Your 'choices' for this month are:

  • Remix a Sonic song
  • Remix a Sonic song with sound effects (bonus points = +2)
  • Remix a Sonic song using nothing but sound effects (bonus points = +4)


Basically we're back to old times with the addition of my challenge when I feel as if I have a good one. Since it was kind of unanimous in the overhaul thread that nothing was wrong with what we were doing; we just got burned out and some months we just won't have a lot of mixes. Also, hopefully the simplicity will attract more people. (I made a thread on OCR for OLRmageddon so hopefully we'll get some fresh blood. If not, oh well!)

naw we just don't have enough people to have so many voting categories. plus, I do agree with dasaten that some people get scared off from a contest when the first thing they see is a wall of text.

in the future! i never said QEAR was over with...

WHAT

Does this include splicing/reusing the original music sampled from the ROM, or does it have to be exclusively non-music SFX?

Hmm, good question! While I intended it to be non-music SFX, as long as you can outline what sources you use, you may certainly splice and dice the original music from the ROM.

Just remember it's still gotta be a remix of a Sonic song!

Results!

1st Place - ShinnyMetal - Shitty the Suckhog - 10+2=12 points
2nd Place - cotti - Mobius Bogus Boogie - 7+4=11 points
3rd Place - Brunzolaitis - criminal insanity zone - 5 points
4th - Brunzolaitis - Metronomes are overrated - 2 points


The "+2" and "+4" are the bonus points rewarded for the song meeting the bonus points and challenge guidelines for this month.

Well, I think we all know what the unanimous opinion on Sonic is...lol
