RELEASED! FOLLOW THE LINK!


2020 is coming. And we figured that with a big milestone year it's best to do the 'new year, new me' stuff early.

Friends and lovers, this is the new project of ZENIUS -I- MANIA with a new, more beardy manager. The plan I've set out is to have an album finished and released in the last day of 2019. The 2020s are upon us, and what better way to write a goodbye letter to the decade we've just left?


GROUND RULES

Submission deadline: I'm going to set this to Friday 20, December. This gives us all over 4 months to complete the project, which should be enough. Be warned, that this date looks ages away now, but it's really not going to be. You've all done projects before. This is a soft deadline, I don't have an exact time that I'll finish the project, because it's the Friday before Christmas, and pubs exist. By the time I wake up from my hangover on Saturday morning, you can say that's the deadline then.

My role as project lead: I don't really have a stake in this above any of you who wish to take part. I am very much the librarian in this project, I'll take the finished songs in when you're done and figure out the best way to arrange them on the final product. I'm not going to be a nagging type; this isn't a paid job, so I'm not going to be an arsehole about it. My idea is that this is an open forum, so I believe everyone should have a stake in how we tackle the project. Anybody interested in taking part already has this thread to pitch ideas and get help from others if they need to, and we can make a seperate channel in the Discord if needs be.

Song Rules:
- Keep your songs between 1'30 - 5'00. I won't be too strict on the upper limit, but if you ARE going over the 5 minute mark, there needs to be a valid musical reason for you to do so. Don't loop a chorus for the sake of looping it, and the like. I'd like the median to be about 2-3 minutes.
- You are allowed to remix BEMANI songs. Whilst I would prefer originals, if you're able to provide a new direction on a track everyone loves, by all means go for it.
- Please enter your files at at least 192kbps. I'm not an audiophile, but we have standards.
- Send me your files through either a Discord link (Oni-91#9956) or through a PM here. Bear in mind that you CAN send direct files through Discord but there is an 8Mb limit.
- There is no limit to the number of songs you can send, but remember: quality is better than quantity. I'd try to limit it to three at most, but ideally just one or two should be fine.
- There are no restrictions on genre, but do be mindful that an album full of songs with STEP or CORE in their genre is gonna get old real fast. We're not 2014-era IIDX.


When you do submit something, enter it through the submission methods in the following format:
SONG NAME:
ARTIST:
GENRE:
BPM:
USERNAME ON ZIv:


Now, good luck, and get out there! I want as many people as we can to take part in this.

Also, if any of you have better ideas for a name, do shout out about it.

Feel like there should only be one X in the title because XX is 20

Well, the decade's about to be the 20's, is what I think he meant.

Also: the Rhythm Maniacs server now has a channel for this special project. If you're not already in it and want to be in a Discord with other people doing stuff for it, here you go.

Approximately nobody asked for this song to be included. Least popular decision by the Japanese since Nintendo released the Wii U.

I've kinda got that side covered myself (it's one of the rare bits of the project I trust myself with!), but I'm open to suggestions ofc

What I'm gonna do is hold the work out until the deadline for music comes, and the remainder of the year is gonna be making the graphics to suit the general feel of the music. Pertinent to wait until you get all the stuff in, in't it?

At least the Zenius part of the logo's gonna have to be in Exo 2 font. That's just the law.

I really participate in this project but I don't meet musics programs. Can anyone suggest some good music programs?
In case that I can't make songs. Can I colaborate with some graphics for the songs or album?

I'm using 7 too. I just think all the newer versions change too much and get wayyyyyy too complex.

I know it's the standard thing for a DAW nowadays, but I really prefer the automation section being the lower half and not the dominant part of the main screen.

Also @SupremeX: there's a bunch of different DAWs online that are available to use easily through your browser. If you just give online DAWs a Google you should be able to find one that should take your fancy. All else fails, if you have a microphone and a tambourine someone's gonna help you get in here.

I plan on submitting at least 4 songs to this thing, including some tunes I planned to have on the album I've been on/off working on these past few years. Hope y'all are ready to rokk.
- Your Call Is Important To Us
- Punk Rock Goddess
- Learning To Jump The Junction With The Best Of 'Em
- The Aftermath Of Sex
Y'all can see these added in that songlist spreadsheet above, but I feel like it was necessary to make these additions its own post (if not to somewhat force me to actually get them recorded).
