Yes, the accapella contest will be great for testing my new mic.. Except I don't have an xlr cable and the preamp hasn't arrived yet.

there are tons of talented musicians on newgrounds.. and some not-s--talented ones - if you can't coast on talent then try coasting on funny.

Unfortunately my pre-amp arrived and its the wrong one (I bought it off ebay and assumed it would have usb since the website of a model with the exact same name did), so I probably cant coast on talent or funny.

How about ;;

An 'I wanna be Skrillex competition'.
A competition which focuses solely on guitar, i.e. it has to be the main instrument.
A glitch/IDM competition.
An Ibiza Theme.
A retro 90's theme.
A 'closed in a glass box' theme, where users would interpret it as they wish.
A duck competition.
Alternative Music/Synth Punk a la Prodigy.
Indie Dance/ French Electro a la Justice theme.
'Olskool Rock, kinda like Linkin Park.

One, just one, I want you to like at least one.

ehh too obscure

possibly but severely limits who can submit

A glitch/IDM competition.

maybe.

An Ibiza Theme.

ehhh

A retro 90's theme.

a strong possiblity- and now sad that 90s is considered retro now..

A 'closed in a glass box' theme, where users would interpret it as they wish.

interesting..

A duck competition.

rofl - you can only use quacks - thatd be hilarious.

Alternative Music/Synth Punk a la Prodigy.

i don't think the market is big enough on this site for something like that.

Indie Dance/ French Electro a la Justice theme.

too obscure.

'Olskool Rock, kinda like Linkin Park.

once again I fear the amt of people who would be eligible for this..


One, just one, I want you to like at least one.

there you go.

Depressing or Dark themed song (since there was already a uplifting one)
8-bit song contest
a calm DnB song contest (since most DnB have loud synths and overwhelming basses we could try do it the opposite way)
Jazz Song Contest (oh yeah)
80`s Porn music song contest (IM SERIOUS)
Electro house??

I forgot to add one and i don't know if this is possible:

a tag team contest , like 2 audiogrounders working together to promote the true value of teamwork in today's society which could lead to a better responsibility regarding human morals and could help to decrease global warming and it will help 10,000 of children to get a free PS3 with battlefield 3.

Think about the teamwork

THINK ABOUT BATTLEFIELD 3

BATTEFIELD!!!

THREE!!!!!

How about a two-instrument comp? You're limited to two instruments, samples, etc. and must work with what you got.

Or a 'Found Sound' comp? The idea is to make a song a la Stomp with just everyday household sounds.

Perhaps a SFX song? Similar to the Found Sound idea, but with video game SFX. It'd be exclusive to one game's FX as to make it more challenging for the participants. They'd be able to use one of, say, 6 packs of samples for it

Maybe a ringtone competition? Self explanatory.

verrry interesting..

this would possibly only work if we also let people use royalty-free sounds as the acapella contest had shown to be hindered mainly due to people's lack of access to a mic.

lol housemastas "dirty" video game remixes is all that comes to mind when I hear that.. it's an interesting idea though.. I shall mull over it.

Maybe a ringtone competition? Self explanatory.

meh. I think it may be too close to the 8-bit contest we already had - I'll file that away for maybe the same month next year.

Depressing or Dark themed song (since there was already a uplifting one)

I don't feel doing a depressing songi n a summer month is really a good idea - not the right mindset for it- winter or halloween is more an appropriate month for thai.

8-bit song contest

already had one - I would hate to make people think I favour certain genres.

a calm DnB song contest (since most DnB have loud synths and overwhelming basses we could try do it the opposite way)

like liquid dnb? That could be interesting.. I do like liquid dnb.. synteza and dreamscaper come to mind on this site..

Jazz Song Contest (oh yeah)

eyyyyyyhhhhhhhhrrrghhhghghgh i dunno.

80`s Porn music song contest (IM SERIOUS)

I've actually wanted to do a contest liek this for a long time. A good contender - I shall think about it.

Electro house??

and what exactly would that entail - deadmau5??

a tag team contest , like 2 audiogrounders working together to promote the true value of teamwork in today's society which could lead to a better responsibility regarding human morals and could help to decrease global warming and it will help 10,000 of children to get a free PS3 with battlefield 3.

personally I would liek to wait until after the redesign when the "collaboration" function is added to the audio portal where 2 artists can share credit for a song before I do this. Atm it's just too awkward to run something like this.

Think about the teamwork

THINK ABOUT BATTLEFIELD 3

BATTEFIELD!!!

yeah yeah yeah.

I say liquid dnb. It's not a very restricting genre, so a lot of people can get involved.

so in light of it being finals month for a mot of people we have decided to not do a secondary contest this month.. that and due to the fact that kirbyfemur still hasnt posted the results holding up a well oiled machine that has consistantly delivered up until now.. we may rein the secondary contests back to NAC judges to run simply from a reliability standpoint in future..
