Me and a few other Renoisers just had fun taking part in Massive OHC event on IRC. It was a cool compo, but as most OHCs it accepts only oldschool formats like it, xm, s3m, mod etc. We decided that it would be cool to have a similar event, but accepting Renoise rns files.
To those of you, who don’t know of OHCs:
One Hour Competition is a tracking-specific competition, where a group of peopl meets on an IRC channel. They download a samplepack released at a certain hour, and an hour later they upload back their songs. Then a votepack is made with all the song and participants download it. Then they vote for the songs. After that the results are counted and announced and people /leave the channel .
OK, I think I might be able to host a compo like that.
Before I make certain plans however, I want to know:
how many of you would participate?
which day and hour would you like best (there’s a chance for a weekly compo maybe…)
how much time can you spare on such a compo (cause it might not be exactly one hour compo)
i would too!! for sure! i’ve been wanting to be in a compo for a long time… last one i did was around 98 with impulse tracker. weekends would be best for me but for the next 1-2 months any day of the week would be ok probably. except there might be a time zone difference? i wouldn’t be able to do it while i am at work - i work 9am-5:30 pm EST … where are you located and what times would you want to have these things?
It’s an IT clone, has most of the features of the original, same keybindings (which pisses me off, because I’m used to my modified Renoise keybindings), though the interface sometimes does strange things and the vibrato effect works strange. Unfortunately reduz seemes to have dropped the developement of this tracker on version 0.9.9 , when it’s almost finished and works almost perfect. It’s perfectly usable for OHCs though.
