Here's my entry "Christmas Canon(Medley)" .... I used the melody from the classical masterpiece Pachelbel's Canon. Added my own twist with sleigh bells and what not. I tried to incorporate many different styles too.

This is the place to submit your tracks for the TIMGUL Holiday competition hosted by our guru, Cold Storage.

Quote
PRIZES
The music 3000 sampler prize was the first thing I thought of, as I know they are tough to find
and I just happened to have a spare one here. Don't worry, I will also be digging out some other
prizes too, just to make the whole thing worthwhile for people who aren't using or don't own
MUSIC 3000. I'll post again soon to let you know what the full prize list is! Smiley

CLOSING DATE
Closing date at this point is flexible(ish)... on the one hand I want to make sure people have enough
time, but I also want to get the prizes to people before the end of the year. So I guess around 16/17th
December is cutting it fine enough maybe?

ELIGIBILTY
If you've not got access to (any) MUSIC products to create a track then in fairness we'll have to
say sorry to you for this compeititon at least. In the spirit of the comp. we should stick to music
created using the products. That means MUSIC, MUSIC 2000, MTV MUSIC GENERATOR, MTVMG2,
MUSIC 3000, Pocket MUSIC GBC/GBA and MUSIC 2002 Club Edition.

POSTING ENTIRES
Where are we going to post the entries? Possibly a good idea to start a new topic for entries?
I'll leave that up to the admins. I'm busy working on the Competition Anthem just now... as soon
as it's finished I'll post it to the forum. Wink

BTW, just to be a bit more all encompassing and P.C. we should really call this the Holiday Season
music compeition... don't wanna exclude anyone who doesn't do Christmas per se. Wink

Good luck!

So, place your submissions here...

My submission... "Slay Ride". Was once posted here, but this is a slight remix (and has cleaner sound!)

I *almost* submitted "God Rest ye Merry Psychopaths", but this is a much more fully realized production. It helps if you visualize Santa trippin' balls and picking off feral cats from his sleigh (hence, the title).

DJ Droppin...Very, very good. Yeah, great use of the pad sounds..I personally struggle with them myself, so I gotta give you props!

I think I may have mucked up the merging of the topics lol

Hello again!  ;D

To give members and the public easy access to competition entries I've created a BandCamp page;

http://timgulxmas2009.bandcamp.com

If ANYONE who enters objects to their entry being posted there, let me know ASAP and I will remove it.
This BandCamp page links to the TIMGUL site, so hopefully it will drive traffic here too... :)

I've set this BandCamp page up just for the competition... as people submit their tracks, I will upload them
to the page - unless you don't want me to (please state when you post your entry to this thread).

If you want me to post any extra info. or art in your track details, post it with your submission in this topic.

Hope this helps?

ATB,
Tim.

Ah nice. I checked out the page and it looks fantastic, Tim. I am honored to have my song on this.

I appreciate those who've already listened and commented on my track. I'm glad you liked it.

Just so everyone's happy with the terms of the competition, best to get rid of any problems at the start!  ;)

Here's a PDF of some (legal sounding) T's & C's that should ensure everyone knows what's going on and no-one
gets upset/offended/cheesed off. I know it seems a bit overkill to do this kind of thing, but I've seen less formal
things go pear shaped because the rules were all a bit "wishy washy".

http://www.coldstorage.org.uk/TIMGUL-COMP-XMAS-2009.pdf

If any of the admins need changes to the rules I can update and re-post.

Looking forward to hearing more!!!  :D

Listening....
Nice synth intro..... Plays along perfect with Jingle Bells.
Then it gets dark.... One of your trademarks.

Liking the reverb snare.
Trippy.
Has a nice beat and sound to it.... This (to me anyhow) is a bit untypical of a production for you, but meaning this in a good way.
2:15 liking that percussion and bell chorus. Nice touch!
3:30 I like the sliding bells sound changing in pitch.
Really like the overall panning bass kind of has a reverb/distorted sound.

Excellent song. Great entry indeed.

Edit: We submit our songs here. Is it okay we comment on the songs in here? or...

Yeah, I was thinking that when the first batch of comments came in, I thought
"Oh no, how will we know where all the songs are?"

But, now I've set up the BandCamp page I'll be trawling this thread every now and
again and copying songs to http://timgulxmas2009.bandcamp.com for completeness.

So, from my perspective I don't mind... keeps it fun & fresh.

'course, I'm a bit of an interloper here, so it's not up to me, LOL! ;)

You're not really an interloper...you're the reason all of this is possible! Man, let me just say I *greatly* appreciate all that you've done.

Droppin...glad you liked the track! Yeah, we kinda went for a more commercial sound for that one... may make a video for this...probably would be keen to use clips from Silent Night Deadly Night lol.

Sort of an update on the track I've got prepped:
It is a cover/remix of a metal song and it doesn't really sound Christmassy. :-/
I've just got the vocals to record (and fix the sound levels on some of the riffs since they'd be too loud) - though I'm experimenting with the two microphones I've got and I'm going to try and record through my camera and my headset mic simultaneously; once I've got those recorded, I can go about editting the files together. It's just finding the time (since I don't like to record vocals when other people are in the house)

Also, whilst the song had to be split into two seperate files on the emulator's Memory Card (like the original), the first half takes up 1 block of Memory Card. The other? Four :D. (which is actually a record for me - mine are usually 1-2 blocks in size.. three if I'm lucky)

Got a tune I'm working on, it's not a really long song, and I didn't want to make too much of a cheesy Christmas kind of rip off with slay bells and all that but hopefully it's the kind of thing you're looking for. What worries me is that maybe some forum members (not any in particular I'm just generalising here) may think that if someone beats say an experienced TIMGUL member to the prize that maybe they are more talented or that somehow there is a certain level of talent needed to win this. Being a kind of newbie to the series myself (if I am even that anymore), this kind of thing does worry me slightly that we would be overlooked in said contest. Not stirring or whining or starting shit or anything, just trying to make what is hopefully a valid point.

good point lyricist     however i think that since the contest is being judged by cold storage anyone who enters will be judged without favoritism because cold storage is not really aware of who's a vet and who isn't-he designed the software and isn't a timgul regular per se altho he has been a member awhile he just reappeared so i'm certain his judgement will be independent of that sort of vet  vs newbie thinking                                     casper
ps-i was going to try to wrote an entry since i moved my pc to a spare deroom of my girlfriend's house on friday but somehow i lost the adapter to connect my playstation to my pc in the move :( i don't have money or transportation to buy one as i used my money to pay someone to move me however i do have a spare ps cord i could rig with a headphone cord manually if i really wanted to but at the moment i'm busy building my net label and perfecting my techniques on jeskola buzz tracker/vsti host

Okay this is my entry it's a remix of a previous tune I've done, sounds not at all Xmassy but with the added bonus of it being produced by DARKBLISS! It's called Replace The Seal, enjoy

The tracks need to be composed using; MUSIC, MUSIC 2000, MTV Music Generator, MTV Music Generator 2, MUSIC 3000, Pocket Music (GBC/GBA) or MUSIC 2002 Club Edition. MUSIC 2000 was released on PC, and MUSIC 2002 Club Edition is only on PC.

Hope that clears it up?

AFAIK, Caspers tune was "...made in one hour on mtv music generator(north america)".

"MTV Music Generator (North America)" is basically "MUSIC 2000 (UK)" so it's done on a PS1 (edit: could of course be a PS2 running a PS1 game, or if you have the right PS3... well you get the gist!) whereas MTVMG2 is of course PS2.

I had a listen, and it sounds pretty authentic to me, but I've not used the products in a little while(!)  ;D

There's def. some TV out noise at the start of the file, and I don't think there are any external sounds used?

I'm sure Casper can clear it up for us, but I think it's a kosher entry.  :D
