Was there a chat log for this month? I'm curious what people were talking about during the 20 minute length of our song.

So the results turned out very close to my expectations. I knew me and tibone wouldn't get a high spot on the list with an arrangement that unique. But now that it's all revealed, I should say: I tried to bullshit you a bit in the reviews. Frankly, I'm really happy on how our track turned out. The stems I received were kinda difficult to work with and mix in right. Also, considering how experimental the stylistic quality of the song was, I think we did a decent job after all.

 

Here's another thing I'd like to share. After writing the reviews, I listened to the Diablo track again and I thought... "Hey! This sounds sooo much like a Brandon Strader/Careless Juja song." And I was right! I think the drum sound and live accordion gave it all away. ;p

 

Anyway, HUGE CONGRATS to Shipluss on that piano piece! Hope to hear you in Russian Attack someday again.

 

And almost forgot, I'd like to give a special shoutout to Nicolas Daoust for adding his sweet vocals to my Drifting Away arrangement. I really really appreciate it. I think we kicked ass!

Haha, yeah my orchestra sounds are dated af. I didn't even expect to do as well as #5. Congrats to the winners!

Question about intro month: a lot of intros are shorter than two minutes. How will this affect--if at all--DOD's classic rule set?

Just solo for the rest of the time you need.

 

Note: not speaking in an official capacity.

 

I miss 'intros' being a thing.

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

my entry is just going to be 2 minutes of me screaming "SEEEEEEEGGGGAAAAAA" as loud as humanly possible into my phone.

Sanic deserves only the best intro.

Yooooooooooo!!!

 

Sorry I meant to get on here sooner but have been busy with crap... Anyway! It's great to be back on DoD and The Shizz and I'm glad I finally got a chance to submit something under the new name. Its great to see that people liked what I did since I'm planning to start a solo channel on Youtube called Steven Strums and this will be one of the first tracks I upload on there so I've been having small cases of self-doubt about how it would be received. So thanks for the kind comments and the voting and all that.

 

 I think it was Czyszy in the other thread who commented on the "shaker" and asked if the other drums were recorded from the guitar... Yessir! All the drums/percussion you hear were samples I recorded from my guitar.

 

I think the inspiration came from the Super Guitar Bros medley of Castlevania 3 where people commented on how much they liked the scratching sounds that I was doing. It got me thinking how it would be cool to make a drum kit entirely of samples that I recorded myself. Here's an example of what they sound like in their dry state:

https://www.instagra.../p/BiUxPD2HTDv/

 

So yeah, that "shaker" sound is actually supposed to be like a "hi-hat" but either way, it's just a bunch of samples of me scratching the side of the guitar. 

 

Anyway, thanks again, guys. It's good to be back. Maybe I'll submit again sometime in the near future.

If it's allowed I have suggestion:  Kirby Super Star's Revenge of Metaknight story (or go crazy and do all of them)(or go REALLY crazy and do all of them all layered on top of each other/all at once)

...And early submit'd, cause I'm gonna be relatively busy the next few days and my memory sucks and I'm horribly disorganized and I don't trust myself to remember I even did this come deadline.
