Welcome to The Music Box!
Heylas fellow musicians. I understand how long it has been since the last music update. I have many songs for you to try to make up for the delay. First off, I would like to thank #sstrax for donating all their NRC-2 entries to RPGamer. NRC-2 was a compo in which the trackers made an NES song sound like a beautiful, instrumental song. Another gem in the midst of this all is one of my personal favorite songs: Necrosaro, Master of Evolution. Hearing Khalal's retrack version made me reminsce of playing Dragon Warrior 4 in between watching Ghostbusters and Ninja Turtles. Rather back in the day, if you ask me. Memories of Necrosaro shooting blinding rays of light that made me laugh because they never affected Ragnar, Alena, Taloon, and Cristo come to mind. Ok, enough of that memory.
The title of today's update has to do with RPGamer's first singing contest. The Operattack-1 is designed for all singers out there who want to be heard(Forgive the pun). For more information on this, check out the daily Music Box news below this paragraph. I'd like to see more of you music lovers on IRC. #RPGmusic is The Music Box's channel for all your tracking, sequencing, singing, and more needs. Don't have IRC? All the info you need is at RPGamer's :
IRC FAQ. Stop by and say 'Hi!'.
Competitions: All the rules, FAQ, and submision info for The Music Box's singing contest, Operattack-1, is at here. Need an example of how it should sound? Check out Ronnie Bell's Boat Song. It should be exactly like this except only a minute long (and with whatever song you like RPGs).
Lyrics: As busy as my life gets, no Lyrics have been added.
Misc. Music: I did add Ronnie Bell's Boat Song rendition, be sure to check it out. Good job Ronnie.
Music Mixes: Two new mixes posted. Cid's Prelude Remix is a pretty well put together mix of Cid's theme and the Prelude. Also, the Final Fantasy Battle Medley should provide musical delight to those battle lovers.
Soundtracks: I really need to ge some of these done. Help, anyone?
Tabs: RPGamer is in need of instrumental sheets. Guitar/Bass Guitar Tabs, Piano Sheets, ect. If your interested in helping make these, contact me.
Wanted List: Same old, same old.
With the exception of one or two songs, I have got all of May, June, and July out of my inbox into this update. Rather large, ne? Good job to everyone who has their music up today. Hopefully, August should be done next update. I hope to see you all again soon with my busy schedule of High School, College, and RPGamer. Shade and sweet water to all.
