My apologies, I didn't know that you were keeping it a secret. Sorry.

I don't think an EP is totally doable in 35 days for most, but what if we were to do a minimum song length of like, 6 minutes or so?


I agree with you, it may not be very doable, especially when there has only been a few finished tracks submitted anyway. We'll see what people want to do at the end of this challenge.

I hope to finish lyrics today and record vocals tomorrow and send it in 25th!
it's not the best song ever, but since I never wrote a song before, I'm pleased with it... tho I would call it crap if someone with more experience wrote it :)

hmm, about EP challenge, maybe a bit hard to do imo, but I like the idea...
maybe something similar, like everyone needs to make a 15 mins of music, which can be distributed in any way... let's say, you could do either 1 song 15 mins long, or 5 songs 3 mins each, or any other way...
that way people who are better at writing can show all they can do, and those of us less fortunate can just do some repeating to bring it up to agreed amount of time!

I also agree on a new tread for resaults, but it might work well if you put the link in the first post, together with the directions on what page reviews begin!

Why not just have a monthly challenge? they could be themed for every month, and like every other month we have a no theme like this one? if not one person would run it, everone could just throw out ideas and we all yay or nay them.

well the first two that we did everyone was saying that the following challenge was too 'hot on the heels' of the previous challenge. so maybe not every month maybe every month and a half I think would be more able for more people to participate. hell I even though the 2nd one that i horribly hosted was too soon and wasn't enough... I was excited about it at first and nailed out two song pretty quickly but i had so much other shit going on i didn't devote any real time to them and half assed them and really should've have presented them in their shitty ass form they were.

Man, I have a shit setup for vocals. Just saying now the vocals are gonna sound like ass. Does anyone have any good tips for making good growls? People say my highs sound like BDM don't know if that's good or bad, but i really want to get my lows tightened up. my problem is it hurts the shit out of my throat, but no one can seem to give me a straight answer on how to avoid this.

Well, that's what writing is, my first songs sucked (some of them still do). But be proud of w/e you make! This contest is a perfect opportunity to get some criticism with people who are experienced!

You really have to use your diaphragm/chest for lows.

The first song you submitted will be the song that is uploaded.

The 28th is all of the time that you'll get now. After the 28th, submissions are closed and a new thread will be made to post results / reviews of tracks.

All users who submitted a track, must provide solid and insightful criticism for all other tracks submitted. It would be preferred, that all users that have submitted a track, keep all of their reviews in one single post.

A list of people that completed the challenge will be posted in the new thread.

Why couldn't he change his submission? That seems rather arbitrary.

I think that he should be able to submit multiple songs if he wants, does anyone agree?

Once a song is submitted, it is final and that will be uploaded.

EDIT: It not an arbitrary decision. The rule is that one song per user will be accepted, and all submissions are final. Why should the rules be changed, because one user changed their mind? an exception has already been made for the finishing date of the challenge.

Agreed. That would be unfair with the other competitors who spent so much time and work in only one song.

I didn't mean that I want to submit two songs I just wanted the first one to be removed and to consider the 2nd one as my song . Not a big deal and this 2nd song I submited was to be my song but the guitarist took so much time recording his shit so I felt hopless and submited another one but then the guitarist surprised me and sent me the guitar tracks and I guess it's all about our musical skills so there's no results or Kitkat bars as trophies so what in fucks name would happen if I just wanted to change my submission ?

Not trying to sound harsh, but you should have thought about that before submitting your first midi. You could have waited until a day or two before the finish to see if your friend would sort his stuff out.

The 28th of this month on US time will be the cut off point for any remaining participants, meaning that the 28th is the last day that you can submit a track.

Once the 29th comes, I'll open a new thread for the tracks for people to hear, and the reviewing / criticism can begin.

I kinda don't see why DemonofDarkness can't just exchange songs either, I'd much rather hear the song he actually wrote for the competition, instead of something he sent in out of panic because someone else took a while. I just don't see what the big deal is. In either case, I want to hear his actual song, so if it isn't "allowed" in this competition (really, it's not even competitive) then I'd like to hear it regardless.

Anyways, iamntbatman and I still have vocals to do. We've been putting it off just because we didn't want to bug the neighbors, but considering it's Friday night, we'll get them done ASAP.

Yeah, considering this isn’t a competition but rather something to bring MA musicians together and share some work I don’t see any reasonable argument for not letting him change his submission. This is just for fun, what possible difference could it make?

That had slipped my mind. The 1st of March will be the cut off date.

You already submitted one song, that is the one that stays. No one else is granted the luxury of changing their choice, so why should you be?

If your not happy with the choice you have made, why don't you post a link to your second song in the results thread? I'm sure people would be happy to provide criticism for your new song, regardless of whether it is uploaded with the rest or not.

Because he worked hard on the song he wants to submit JUST FOR THIS COMPETITION. From what I've heard, the other one was submitted out of panic that the intended song would not be finished in time. all you gotta do is delete, then download. just make life easier and take the intended song bro. fuck

Judging by this and your last post, you seem to not take this very seriously at all, so why should I?

You should have read the rules, and left your submission to the last second if you were not sure if another song would be available to submit. You rushed ahead and now you're stuck with this, deal with it.

I, also like you, don't have much time to waste on this either, so let this be the end of this discussion. If you want the second song to be judged, just post and link and let those interested criticize it.

You're missing the point. Keep this to PM's if it bothers you that much, if not, let's stay OT and keep the discussion to people's progress.

You have no problem with ShaolinLambKiller doing a whole EP, but you won't let a dude upload the song he originally wrote for the competition? I thought this was supposed to just be casual and friendly? C'mon dude, a ton of people have already said they'd like you to let him switch his song out. Is it really that big of a deal?

it don't matter to me if the whole ep is posted or not. I did it as to make it more challenging for me. I wrote and recorded everything in the alloted time. but if people rather it just be one song from it I'm fine with that. I already have a tape release in the works for it.

you know what? you wanna pm me, then pm me. your choice... but this whole thing is just stupid. i'm starting to come to the conclusion that this challenge would have been better off in the hands of someone else enitirely. if your this much of a hardass, you should not have hosted this challenge.

if you wanna keep the discussion pertained to progress, then let the poor guy progress.

That's laughable, considering you edited the original post the same day this came up to include a pointless, arbitrary rule. This is supposed to be fun and casual, why do you insist on making it strict and divisive?

Nah, I wanna hear the whole EP!
