Phew!

Took about two hours to put up, but the job is finally done. a Detailed Results segment has been created, and the second round has been added.

Again, feel free to suggest additional stats to add, as long as it doesn't take too much time or space, I will gladly add it! :)

Hey, this ain't little league boi! I expect my socks knocked off, especially from anyone who uses even a single orchestral patch! Dis is the NGADM!

Lemme hear a hoooo-rah!

HOORAH!

I've put together a post explaining my judging process btw. I'm serious about expecting above and beyond performances every round from every contestant.

This was only the first time actually. Last year I dropped out because of a busy schedule, which I guess is technically a defeat.

Cheers to all the artists going forward in this brutal, no-holds-barred Deathmatch! So many close scores, including the .1 difference between myself and the talented Troisnyx.

Hearty congrats to all who made it in. I just realised I'm the lowest scoring winner, so this Roumd of 16 is going to be yet another round of unlikelihoods for me.

Also.Cheers to you @Jimmypig @ChronoNomad @Guylee. You people did well. Especially you CN. Our margin was so close!

Aw, thanks! Very gracious of you. And enormous congrats to you, @Troisnyx! The end result does not surprise me, and it was a well-earned victory. Bravo!


Bring on Round 2, and let's continue having fun!

Best of luck to you in round 2! You need to keep right on winning so you can avenge us. AVENGE US~!

: or I am, I guess. camo and I have fantastic plans, we'll make up for not having collaborated this round. Also, for anyone who's wondering how this is done so fast, I had a very raw idea sketched out beforehand (and I checked with Step over a week ago about using this) and produced it during the last two weeks where I was basically attached to my computer and DAW because no computer for weeks before that.

Don't you enjoy the adrenaline of submitting in the last minute when your internet connection happens to be unstable?

Looking at our scores it was by the skin of my nose! And now I have to take on etherealwinds who scored over 9! Where's that cliff I don't think I want to be around for the final bloodbath!

Congratulations to all those who went through. Totally gutted at Jacobs out. I loved his last track.

Now for some of us it won't be much different. It's a 2-against-1 round for me.

Cool! Congrats to everyone who made it and also goodluck in round 2. If I have time I will review some other round 1 submissions. I did hear them all and the quality was amazing!

Also, it's going to be fun against you, @johnfn (:
Goodluck to you too.

Hey everyone! Just wanted to pop in to say that I really enjoyed listening to all of the great tracks in round 1; everyone has something to be proud of here, that's for sure. I really admire the dedication and hard work you guys put into your music.

Also, if you are not in my allocated groups (B, D, and F) and would like a review, please send me a PM and I will do my very best to get a review to you as soon as I am able. I hope everyone is having a great day! :)

basically this. if you want a short rationale behind the score i gave you PM me unless you're in groups I, M or P (you guys get a longer review because i'm a PIMP). please only PM me if you're really baffled by the score i gave you.

Same goes for me. I have 14 reviews to do for sure but if you did film score, rock or something then I can give you a review too, if you really want. EDM and jazz not so much, they're not my area of expertise.
As I said, I will definitely review groups E (done), G, L and N, PM for the rest and I'll get to you after going through my allocated ones.

actually here are some general pointers (mainly for electronica guys):

gross beat/dblue/effectrix is cool, i get it. don't use it as a crutch for mediocre synth/drum programming, and just don't overuse it.

a house track has a specific structure. a dubstep track has a specific structure. you don't have strictly adhere to the tropes but these tropes exist for a reason. don't try to reinvent the wheel, and don't submit less than a "radio edit" worth of music.

you can use presets and stock samples, but if we can tell you're using them (unironically) then you're doing something wrong.

don't overcompress your shit unless you know what you're doing. and unless you're this guy, you probably don't.

mixing genres or doing crazy/abrupt transitions between genres is sometimes a good idea. most of the time it's a mess.

if you submit a really shitty trap track i will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it.

Congratulations to everyone who done it and good luck within the next round. Knew I wouldn´t make it, except one of the judges would have had a secret addiction to wacky electric polka ;) Also I definitely have to improve my producing skills if it comes to electric tracks I guess. But it was worth a try and I also heard a lot of awesome music here!
