Greetings from the Music Box!

            Heylas all. I first and foremost want to apologize for the very short update last time. I hope I won't be killed or anything for it. *Chuckle*, moving on... Well I got back from Austin (I was staying with my sister who goes to UT), I had a lot of time to plan things out so expect some site enhancements. Finally getting some real work done around here today!

            Ok, news... I opened up The Music Box's IRC channel for all your sequencing/tracking needs: #RPGmusic on Don't have IRC? Go to to get it. We'll have a full IRC page soon. What else do I have up my sleeve today? The sidebar takes you to about everything music wise on the site. Lyrics, Tabs, the FAQ, Mixes, Compos, Soundtracks, ect... What's coming up you say? Well I want to finish organizing the site and restoring credit to trackers + sequencers. If you have a song on the page you made midi wise, e-mail me and tell me it.

            Last update, I added the Music Box's FAQ. Take a look at it before you ask me any question via e-mail. It may just be up there. Time for the news! I added a Misc. Music section... It has details about what it is in the page. Take a look via the sidebar.

Competitions: Ok ,a lot of info on this one. A lot of you requested that a MIDI compo be made. Well here you have it: X-MIDI-1. The rules are stated as: "Remix a song from a game on the games list here on". is helping The Music Box out with judging and entries. So far we have 10 entries, c'mon people! Only 3 days left. Hand drawn pic by me for a prize. (Pathetic, ne?) Here's what we look for:

    I. Technical (50 points)
  • Appropriateness of Instruments. (25 point max)
  • Controllers (or lack thereof) and how they add to the song. (25 point max)
  • Using multiple midi devices will lose you 30 points.
    II. Musical
  • Is the song in a new style? (That IS what a remix is)(25 point max)
  • Does it sound good, or could someone's kid sister do better? (12 point max)
  • Can you tell what song it is a remix of? (13 point max)
  • 40 points deducted if the entry is from a song other than a game on RPGamer's game list.
-=Entries must be turned in by July 7th!=-

Lyrics: None today.
Misc. Music: *New Section* I'll add all of Project Majestic Mix's info to this new section on the next update. This update will put misc. music that are special music that can't go anywhere else. I added a beautiful, wonderful music disk called "Conception" brought to you by the great trackers on our site.
Music Mixes: Cool prelude mix added today. Take a listen!
Soundtracks: 4 Zelda soundtracks added, 4 Seiken Densetsu soundtracks, and more coming soon!
Tabs: Final Fantasy 7's Oppressed People
Wanted List: New list up. I got some big zips of music the other day to cover all of the previous lists.

            Well at least *this* time I wasn't rushed any. Come visit me and the other staff on #RPGamer and #RPGmusic, Lots of thanks today! Autonomous for the Zelda: The Ocarnia of Time OSV info, Ayanami Rei for the Seiken Densetsu 2 OSV info, Nathan Paul Simons for the Linux trackers info, Michael Ward for the CV:SotN songs, and you the viewer who comes to see my music page every day. Ciao!
