By the way, you know I'm judging Skye in the other contest too, not just Troisnyx? I realised yesterday when I was listening to his submission. No worries though, it won't affect anything on my end.

Dammit! >_< Really should've checked that first! DX

@Clerik No, you're perfectly on time! ;)

@TheGoatee I'm sorry to hear that, man. :'( Good luck with your future projects, though.

12 hours left, everyone!

So around what time will we get the results on Monday? I hope I won't have to wait until midnight again, because school's starting on Monday and I have to go to bed earlier.

Don't worry, I apparently shouldn't be judging you in this anymore, and you have no idea what I rated your audition track for this either so IS COOL RITE

also, pattern/block/chunk/loop - it's a repeatable section of midi that you can copy and paste around

You go back to school on Monday? Damn, that's early...but yeah, I'll try to get them in earlier this time. It's just that because I pushed back the deadline to submit tryouts last time the judges were really crunched for time.

Anyway:

The deadline is in 2.5 hours. You're REALLY cutting it close. Best of luck! ^^

@AnalogByNature Yes, you ALMOST did "run outta time." :P

Alright, here we go! The Knock-out Round Submission Phase of the NGAUC 2014 is now officially closed. Any pieces submitted after this point will not be considered part of the competition. Unfortunately, that means that @MoonlitRaven, @Aliaspharow, and @WingoWinston have been disqualified from the competition. :'( Sorry, guys.

Below is a list of the remaining competitors and their groups, with links to their submissions for this round. PLEASE CHECK THIS LIST TO MAKE SURE I DIDN'T SCREW UP THE LINKS! The results will be out on Monday the 25th.

UNDERDOGS GROUP

Adieuwinter
Bardash
Blacklawn
Clerik
Jernemies
Lasse
Possibly
Sovarozum
Stapless
Sundans
Voltus

PROFESSIONAL AMATEURS GROUP

8-bitheroes
Birdinator99
Djabbic
DjSkyFall
JoshuaHughes
LunacyEcho
Mophead367
Rainheart666787
Waidmann

ALL-STARS GROUP

AnalogByNature
Bassfiddlejones
DivoFST
KatMaestro
Larrynachos
Lich
MetalRenard
SilverPoyozo

Interestingly enough, no one was disqualified and/or privately dropped out from the Underdogs Group, whereas slightly more did in the Prof. Amateurs, and the most did in the All-Stars! That means that the Underdogs Group is the most competitive at this point, as 3 participants from each group will still advance to the next round.

Anyway, without further ado, judges may commence judging! >:D

That is interesting - were some people disqualified? How come? Naming no names.

Anyway - however it turns out, thanks to Door6 for organising this - it's a nice idea.

I've also 'fanned' all the people who got through to this submission stage - so you all have one new fan anyway.

Earlier in the thread (or it may have been a diffeent thread actually), someone mentioned about how expensive vst etc can give people an advantage - how about a competition where you can only use free vst? For a level playing field. Not because I rail at the injustice of people using whatever they want, but just for the fun, and you'd end up with lots of chiptunes, which can only be a good thing.

I'm kinda glad that there are less people in the all-stars group. Make's the odds of me getting past this stage a bit better.

Good luck everyone!

The quality of the samples shouldn't be what carries a song. The melodies are what should be judged. It's a cool idea, though.

you can make the shittiest samples sound good. you just need to know in what form they are shitty and compose/mix/whatever around that. It's challanging but it's possible. ^^

I agree. I'm not arguing that people can't or shouldn't use whatever they please generally or that money can buy talent. But, if you place a limitation on what people can use in a one off situation, it could encourages creativity in a new way for that person, the competition has some kind of format, and...FUN!

It's just an idea, but it might be something (like the NGAUC) that would help promote an inclusive and welcoming atmosphere. I see many people's first interaction on the forum being a response to their initial post that basically boils down to 'you're doing it wrong', fair enough if the rules are not to advertise etc, but it must feel a bit of a frosty welcome nonetheless.
