    Was told the audio section of the modding community was small, but damn, didn't expect this little people to participate. It's a bit odd @GhostOfPast , @Brambleclaw , @RiotZ hope you guys upload your projects soon. Would like to see more of what other people have made.

    Brambleclaw leaves the entry like that, so his second file that he posted is his final entry.
    I thought Music Contest #8 was only 5 participants.

    Anyway, there were a lot of music producers in the old days of HIVE, right?

    Oh well there some other talented users like @obie and @Donut78 who can produce good music here. If any of you guys give a shout I can hold the deadline for more one week or something.

    Yeah, we there aren't many music creators around but there are more people, it's just that they're not participating. I guess this contest has a theme that didn't get much people into it. Anyway for the next contest perhaps people can roll a theme that gets people more engaged.

    Well... We've never been a lot of people as these words may sound =P Because the users weren't active at the same point in time throughout Hive's history.

    I appreciate the mention and I wish I could join but work got in the way this time. :sad: I was toying with an idea at some point but it is far from being a finished product. Here it is, for the sake of it I guess.

    I look forward to joining the next contest though, good luck to you all! :grin:

    If the other dudes think they can do something in that time, otherwise we'll have to either use a minimum of 4 entries or postponed until there are at least 5.

    The longer i work on it, the lesser i'm motivated. The results is far from i expect. It don't have the vibe of Eurobeat. It looks like more like a 2000s-2010s electro. Where are the 90s synths ? Where are the powerfull rock guitar samples ?

    I started like a week late on my entry and I finished it in a day. Try to utilize other synths and edit them to match the synth that you want. I'm also like you, having trouble which synth to pick, but by trying others, you'll be happy with the new idea.

    By the way, you don't need retro synths. Just retro composition mostly.

    I'm building them from scratch to get the exact parametter, i agree it can be messy after yeah.

    I never thought this way. I was convinced that the whole thing must be retro. Sadly i would like to go full into it, else it would be too easy ehehehehe. I'm not the kind of guy that makes things half (either full or empty)

    Completely late to the party, but i think i'll give it a go. (may i?)

    I tried to create a mix between a Topgear like song using lot's of analog synths and 90s drums. It still lacking a solo in the middle section, that i should try to send tomorrow.

    Following an idea similar to the GhostOfPast, sounding like what could be an eurobeat song.

    Posting my first WIP here, although i've been working on this over the last week.

    Contest extended by more 7 days. It now ends on 19th July.



    Alright peeps, last chance to retouch your entries and perhaps even upload a final version of them! I'm looking forward to hear more from what you've got.

    Nice. This is a great entry, I like this vibe you're going for. Just be sure to post us a screenshot and a work-in-progress (as stated in the rules at the first post) and you'll be counted in.

    I used mostly VSTs from vst4free:

    -DSK Drumz - Drum Machinez
    -FabBass
    -Korg Delta Strig (nabla)
    -a-PAD V4.5
    -HERCs Abakos
    -Analog Mini (Minimal System)
    -Traditional Midi samples. (to give that nintendo vibe)

    So, posting the WIP 1.

    First, i tried to organizate the worksheet by puting names and adjusting the orders:

    [​IMG]

    Edit on the song itself in WIP 1:

    Lot's of volume adjustments, more elaborate drums and some synths on the main melody. All of theese changes got me the feeling that the melody had some emphasis. I'm still thinking of something for the intro.

    Also, the solo.

    Edit on the Final Entry:

    Some sequencing added on the intro and the solo in the middle section (it's not really a "solo", but it works).

    Thanks for the opportunity, hope you all had fun as did i.

    Sorry guys, got caught up in a few 60 hour work-weeks and completely forgot about my project. Curious to see the results.

    Welp. It's my loss. I was too demanding about myself. I withdraw my entry (do you want a simple Electro loop ? <: that's not very retro ehehe). Haven't advanced much these day.
