Yeah, this week I found that both my World of Warcraft warlock and my inbox weere swimming in epic loots. For my warlock, it was epic armor that makes me look "Pimptastic." For my inbox, it was a bounty of submissions. In fact, I stopped downloading them after I hit four on sunday night. So, for the first time in a long time I have a legitimate...backlog. Of course, with next week bringing the deadline for Round three of Splendid Performance, I am hoping for even more submissions. My goal is that I provide at least 4 submissions each week. Right now, things are looking up for that. Lets continue this trend.
This week, our submitters have brought their best, with three contest entries and one midi. Leading off we have Nerv, who brings us a very relaxing mix from poorly underrepresented Dark Cloud 2. Following that, k-wix steps up with a kickin' techno/electronica Zelda remix of the famous gerudo theme from Ocarina of Time. The third contest entry is from the ever present Rexy, who takes her 3rd stab at the contest. Representing for the Game Boy Advance, Rexy remixes a tune from Castlevania: Circle of the Moon. All these entries are solid and I look forward to seeing what all the judges come up with.
The last entry this week is from Kevin Kelly, who submits a MIDI mix from Quest for Glory 2. This mix was a real blast from the past, seeing as this game was released in 1991. While Kevin intended his mix to be a contest entry, he ran into a problem when it came to getting out a mp3. While I am not sure what the problem was exactly, I recommend that Kevin looks to the community for help with a mp3 render. I know Rexy has been getting assistance with renders while she is away from school (as noted in her comments). So what I would like is for anyone who has some good software to maybe lend Kevin a hand. Post in on the forums here and maybe we can help make his MIDI into a contest entry.
With all that, I bet you're tired. This was definitely an action-packed week for sound test, one of many to come, I hope. Remember, midnight monday is the deadline for round three submissions, so get to work on finishing a piece if you are in the works (or haven't even started yet).
