I'm finally entering one of these NACs, and my track has turned into a summer memories/nostalgia/gentler type of track. Is this close enough to the guidelines to be considered?

Just put the link of your song without linking it, just copy and paste it, then paste it. And you will get something like this:

Lol, becuase when you write in the top you choose the option *Link*, dont choose it, just copy and paste the link in the thread, dont link it. For example: Cake (i just put it) cake (i linked it) See the difference? With your technique it will be this way:
http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/490819

But what i did here, i only copied the link paste it, i didnt do anything else:

ok all the results are in.. just have to make the winning sigs.. I will do that tonight when I get home.

also since I'm at work this months nac will be made at some point today and will be an industrial infused dnb/dubstep theme, with the goal being that the song has to at least have a bass that is some industrial sound.. car engine.. heavy machinery, etc. And you can reesify and wub wub it from there, but at the beginning of the song it has to be present in its raw form and slowly distorted so people can see it is indeed an industrial sound being used. :P

the sound has to be an industrial sound - how you alter it after that is up to you - so yes you can use a dnb/dubstep basline

so like dubstep would be like VROOM VR-VROOM VR-VR-VR-VR-V-V-V-R-R-R-V-V-V-VR-VR-VR..

Ok im still really unsure. So im just going to ask first if you think this song is qualified to be submitted in this NAC.
The intro is a traditional dubstep song then machine sounds come into play. So is this ok?

this is a competition thread.. a new competition is help every month based on the input of the users from newgrounds.

It generally starts within the first.. say.. 3 days of the month and runs until the 3rd week of the month, with the last week being used to pick a top 8 and to judge.. or in theory anways (most judges are lazy and just judge at the last minute haha..)

as for if remixes are allowed.. usually no.. as we wish to see what you are capable of yourselves.

I have the results.. I don't have the sigs ready as I got the results at like 2 am last night and I am busy tonight so I may just post the results and post the sigs after.

also the MAC did a metal one.. I like to think that between the MAC and NAC that we can pretty much cover all the genre bases..

I dunno.. I feel the "rave" part of newgrounds is being neglected.. I think that could be a cool contest.. but what would be the twist..

Seriously, that's awesome. Since rave music goes hand in hand with voice acting nearly all of the time!
