NGUAC 2019 Knock-Out Round 2019-07-22 00:07:02
Welcome to the Newgrounds Underdogs’ Audio Contest Knock-out Round 2019! :D If you want some background on why the NGUAC is so awesome, click HERE.
What’s a Knock-out Round?
The next stage of this 3-stage competition! Half of the original competitors from each group were accepted into the Knock-out Round, rounded up according to group membership and then rounded up again if there were ties. The new group membership totals may be unequal as a result of ties, rounding, and disqualifications.
Speaking of disqualifications, we’re officially dismissing @DatRealWrona, who submitted a collaboration as his tryout piece despite entering the competition as a solo artist.
The remaining competitors have until Sunday, August 4th at 11:59 pm EDT to submit a completely original track (i.e., made from scratch for the competition) to this thread. You couldn't have started working on this piece until NOW, as per the rules. If we find evidence of you having done so, you will be automatically disqualified. Please read all of the rules if you haven’t already.
There will be NO remixes, re-makes, mash-ups, covers, arrangements, or anything like that for this round. Your piece really has to be COMPLETELY original. It’s a good idea to clearly state what you used to make your track - which sounds are from VSTs/plugins, which ones you recorded yourself, and which ones are from downloaded sample libraries. NO COPYRIGHTED SAMPLES ARE ALLOWED. If you don’t know where a sample originates from, please don’t use it. This copyright policy is also clarified in the NG Audio Portal guidelines.
The strongest competitors from each group will be announced by Monday, August 1st. Then, those people will face each other in an epic finale!
Hmm...I didn’t get a very good score. I should probably PM Tom Fulp to complain.
NO! The judges (@Bosa, @Cheshyre, @Everratic, @Jacob, @Midimachine, @Samulis, @SplatterDash, and myself) worked really hard to deliver these scores on time, so please be patient and respectful with them. If you didn't make it into this round, there’s no need to throw a fit in the thread. Simply PM your respective judges if you have any questions or concerns, making sure to keep your tone friendly and not accusing. Your judge(s) might even be willing to leave you some reviews with specific feedback if you request it.
SO WHERE ARE THE RESULTS?
The results will be posted in a separate forum post in a couple of minutes. After that, the specific scores given by each judge will also be released publicly in the thread.
Congratulations to all of the competitors for their hard work. I’m always extremely excited by the new talent that I discover just by judging this contest, and my favorites list has exploded over the past couple of weeks. That said, the toughest part of the competition is upon us! You may now begin working on your Knock-out Round tracks, everyone. Good luck!
