But my spellcheck said it wasn't. What a liar! :(

After reading the rules about this Ngadm, I changed my mind. I will replace the SFX-heavy Nova with this:

Make a song you hate, then reconstruct it so that you and other people like it.

Am I allowed to re-master or change in any way an audition that I already submitted?

Oh, no remixes or covers, lol. Nah, I didn't read the rules in detail, then.

We'll see if I can get anything in by July, then - y'all can scratch my current entry, for now.

Of course silly! You have until the 28th to submit/change your audition. And so long as you don't post 30 different tracks before the end, you should be fine. Just give us an update on if and when you do. And if you want to change it, please find your original audition post, so that changes can be made in lists that are being compiled

As i said above, just reply to your original audition song so that lists can be updated :3

Also i am not an official member of the panel for this, just here to help when Echo or Step aren't able to

If you use your imagine hard enough, yes.

NOTE: You can still have a remix for your audition. I'm sorry for not specifying this, I forgot to specify it last year too. I'd suggest posting an original work because in the end for the NGADM you'll be making original works, but a remix can still accurately display your musical skills (if it's not a MIDI rip of course!).

So yeah, it's alright! I should probably update the rules about it. Sorry again, guys.

Yep! Change it in any way you want, as long as if you submit new versions of it as separate submissions, then you mention clearly here in the thread and give links.

There is no set theme for this competition. Read the rules and you'll have seen that. Do not tl;dr it, or you will have even less of a chance of getting into the contest. His Audition song was a song he had entered into another contest called the "NAC", if you had actually read the rules, it said you can post nearly anything that you yourself have made, past, present, or a specific piece made for the audition. The audition process is for you to show what you think your best song is, that showcases the best of your abilities.

Someone says he missed something, and you instantly call him out for not reading the rules? How do you know for a fact that he didn't read them? For anyone who's not intimately familiar with all the different contest around here could easily be confused by something like that.

Try not to ride people so hard in the future. Flying off the handle like that makes us all look bad.

He asked for the theme and I explained that the rules didn't state a set theme. The second half was explaining why he might have thought that there was a theme. Since Chronamut has his NAC running at a similar time, and usually there are themes in contests, but normally the rules would say it somewhere.

I actually didn't fly off the handle this time, unlike previous times where i called people rude names. This was more of a read the rules to this contest, since he didn't make it obvious that he had read them and was only going off of the audition of another person.

But sorry if it seemed like i was

Well, with the exception of "all-caps = shouting," it's impossible to really read emotion on the internet. Sorry for coming off as accusatory; but hey, I want to work as an attorney - what do you expect? :P

Thanks Step and Kirbyfemur for helping me out with that.

I'm unsure if this is totally necessary because I updated my current audio with my new track and if it isn't, I'm sorry in advance. But, here is my remastered audition.

To truly confuse you, i'll make sure that all of my compliments are in caps-lock only. ;)

It's easier when certain words are used as well to read someone, but it is unfortunately cumbersome to try to have a thread conversation without context. I guess that's what the smilies are for then eh?

Nearly 100 auditions so far. 111 was the amount of auditions last year and that was after around an audition period of a month and a half. This year we've reached almost 100 auditions in 4 days!

94 to be exact. And with how it's going, we will more than likely see a much higher number than last year
