Here i am, excercising my right to throw a competition.
I know this may clash with the Mutant Breaks Compo, sorry about that…but pull yourself together an get involved.
The idea is to write an 8 Bit Version of anything you want…be it I Will Always Love You by Crack Head Whitney, or Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2 (please someone try that) to People=Shit by slipknot… Points go out for complexity in structure and harmony well covered…You may also add little licks, your own rhythms and even arrange it slightly different…(although holding the essence)
XRNS files (so only native effects and samples) and MP3s must be posted up once finished…
And you can only post ONE…so choose wisely.
Winners get a copy of STARCRAFT original game sent to their home.
(If you already have it, sell it on ebay or something/give it as a birthday present…)
Runners up get nothing. GET ON IT
does the chiptune/8-bit aspect of this mean that you’re limited to hand drawn, 8-bit samples? are you limited in any other ways? help a total n00b out … don’t want to get eaten by a grue for my first renoise compo
Your only limited to the overall sound…imagine you only have an 8bit sound card. Would the sounds your using sound like that coming out of it?
Use a square, saw or sine wave, and edit them how you like. REVERB ISNT ALLOWED…Although delay is.
Run drum samples through the lofi mat…
