Yeah sure, do that, but not in this competition where the idea is to include everyone. That's my point, not that I hate the idea in of itself, just don't try it out now. Wrong place and time.

Oh yeah - sorry, I was talking about it as a potential thing to be done in the future, not as part of the current competition.

Well, we have a drought in competitions here in the audio forum so I'd be all up for it! ^^

@Possibly

I can see the cloud of confusion in here. To be honest, everybody has good points and I think everyone is right.

My opinion is, sample quality doesn't matter, it's matter on how you use it. @Troisnyx, won NGADM with free Soundfonts and her vocal. If you do not have the skills then even with the world's best VSTi, you still cannot harness the power.

And to be honest, even as a judge for the NGADM I can say I don't knock off points if someone has a cheap soundfont sound so long as they make an effort to mix it well. We credit skill, not tools.

Hey, uh...

If you want a contest which is limited in terms of instruments or something, there's a contest I'm doing in winter which might fit that. Three rounds, one challenge and one theme per round, composing to the theme within the challenge.

Oh, and the judges are all the people who submit.

The Underdogs should have all received my judging lasers by now. I did me best.

Apparently my own judging laser is one that would deplete my HP with every single use.

One of the rounds is definitely going to be the soundfont only challenge. Another will be only allowing percussive instruments. For synths, that means a quick decay and no sustain. For acoustic instruments, that means no strings, horns, woodwinds, etc. And no heavy reverb, stretching, retriggering, etc, in order to significantly lengthen decay time. It's a requirement slightly difficult to double-check, like the "only 4 instruments" one, but also like that one, it shouldn't be difficult to keep to if you have common sense.

You started the drum roll WAY too early, my friends. ;P Right now, it's looking like the results will be out no earlier than 8:00 p.m. EST.

IMPORTANT NGAUC ANNOUNCEMENT

We have a situation with the results! You see, in response to the whole having-to-rescue-Johnfn-from-an-angry-Russian-cult-with-an-almost-believable-journey-back-in-time thing, the judges and I made some decisions attempting to lower the risk of security flaws in the transfer of the results over the internet. We have taken to using state-of-the-art flying drones to transfer results and make sure that they reach me safely and securely. This would be all fine and dandy, but against all odds, after some minor fog, our flying drone containing the last of the results was destroyed during transit! We suspect that the drone destroyers were behind this sabotage, and wherever they are, we're looking for them. But what will happen to the results now?!

Haha, thanks! Doing the crossover in the first place was my idea, but @Step came up with the "drone situation." ;) I hoped someone would notice...

I MEAN...hehehe....*cough, sputter, gurgle...*

The drones were sent again, and we intercepted them near Papa New Guinea, before they reached the site of their apparent disappearance earlier. Our experts are currently trying to decode them, but it's proven difficult...
