"The world's not all bad sometime"

Last updated: 2020-11-21 10:48am
So I SHOULD have started this at the start of the month, however, I had a week off work so decided to get drunk and play Yakuza instead. I think anyone in my position would have done the same. Anyway, this year's been pretty shit, hasn't it? And so, what better way to give 2020 the big middle-finger treatment than this, eh?

My big idea for this one is to have a SPLIT album, here. One side containing covers/remixes of BEMANI tracks and the other side of original content. Will this work? Who knows. It's going to be fun finding out though, isn't it?

GROUND RULES

Submission deadline: I'm going to set this to Monday 21, December. One extra month than last time, natch. Despite it being a lot of time from this side of the calendar, be warned that the time will melt away if you don't have your eye on the ball!

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're going to revive the seperate channel in the RM Discord too.

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.
- For the remixes/covers side, we'd really love you to attempt to do something different from the original. I know that's hypocritical considering what I did last year, but yeah.
- There's not really going to be any sort of quality control (again, just listen to the shit I wrote last year!), if you submit something, it's 99.9% likely to be going in, but...you wanna send your best stuff, right?
- Please enter your files at at least 192kbps. I'm not an audiophile, but we have standards. MP3 and WAV formats would be preferred to OGG.
- 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.


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


Now, good luck, and get out there! I want as many people as we can to take part in this, like last time.
Links for the usual channels will go up when they're ready, and do feel free to spread this about as much as you can. And if anyone thinks of a decent name for this one I'd be very, very welcome.

SONGLIST LINK
As ever, you can put all the ideas you're doing in here. As always it's done on a trust basis, don't fuck about in there if you aren't going to add anything.

You better believe I'm in.

Also, I recommend everyone who submits uses WAV or any lossless format. Preserve quality, present quality.

Interesting stuff. Might participating this since I need something to motivates me finishing my WIPs.

Quick question, though. If it's non-BEMANI remixes would it treated as Original or they'd get lumped together with BEMANI remixes? And do we submit final product (after mixing/mastering process) or do we submit mixed version and someone do the mastering?
Currently rebooting everything. If only I could change my username.

I'd put them in the remix bit, and I'd probably scratch the "BEMANI" bit off the header.

Ooh, good point. I basically did no mastering for the last one, and I think ideally for this one we're going to have to, aren't we? I think we can cross that bridge once we get a bunch of songs in.

I've added the song list link up there in the first post. Feel free to enter your songs in there, at the end I'll be running through the list and collecting them all then.

A chance to plug my own music? I'm in!

I've been out of the loop of this website for like 4 or 5 years, so I might be missing something, but where can I find a link to the Discord you mentioned? This sounds like fun and I want to be part of it.

Does the music need to have never been released to the public? I have a remix of 3y3s (that I’ve stepped for Summer Contest 2020) and a remix of Brain Power (that I’m proud to have included in DDR XX), and I was wondering if they’re eligible even if they’ve been posted to my YouTube and SoundCloud as singles.

I'd LIKE them to be new, but that's not specifically a requirement, so...shoot 'em. I think we had people sending their soundcloud stuff last time, too.

It's not the official ZIv Discord, but it's the one that most people here are on, so. Anyway, here you go.
One month down. How are we all getting on?

I'm not convinced you've taken in anything of what people have been telling you to stop doing lately.

Other people have posted one-word responses in a couple of threads so I thought that as long as it's not random letters it was okay.
