My time just isn't what it used to be, unlike the first (and only, since I abandoned ship later on) Detroit I participated in. I do in theory have a 48 hour window that is not immediately after the bit pack ends, but I'm probably not going to cash in on the theoretical window I am thinking of.

Making matters worse, I find myself not interested in the samples due to the amount of memory that I find myself wasting just to make one song these days (on the order of hundreds of megabytes... I might add that my first Detroit entry was a very large .it file! I don't want to do that again just for these kind of samples... five years has changed my mindset quite a bit.).

PSA: please use the "submit bit" button on the sidebar, not the one on the bit list page.

the one on the bit list page is bugged and submits a remix entry instead of a sample. see bug report.

My life has taken a drastic change. I live with Bed Bugs now. I spend all of my time thinking about and combating bugs.

My laptops are in my room where the infestation is the worst. I sleep in my living room on a foam mattress, encased in a Bed Bug bed cover, covered in thick plastic, and surrounded by fly tape.

I'm also moving in three weeks so music equipment and laptops will be encased in Bed Bug bed covers and sealed inside large coolers. The coolers will be placed inside a shed at the back of my parent's yard for two years.

I'm posting this from my roomate's laptop. I'll get a new laptop sometime after I move. Enjoy Detroit XI I'll be watching when I can. <3

This compo makes me happy! I have been really jonesing for another Detroit! I think these are my fav majors. The community provides the raw materials, then they get hammered into synergistic masterpieces :)
Or they just get hammered, one or the other. Or both.

This is going to be fun! The Yamaha RY30 sample has a cowbell in it, so we will be able to make some good music. There are no excuses now.

m9m, you can manipulate the 25 samples anyway you choose, no matter what! The only rule of this type of compo is that you source material has to have originated from those 25 samples in some form. What you do with that source material is your business! For the good of the community, it's encouraged that you explain your process if you mangle them beyond recognition, though!

we had to private because we're basically the entertainment for a marching band convention or something

For me, I kinda don't wanna picture something that's as emotionally loaded as my entry playing alongside...marching band stuff

But who knows, maybe it'll make for some extreme dissonance between band music, the funky stuff that everyone else made, and...Hey ( ゚Д゚)

you can estimate how highly people vote your track (between 1 and 7) based on how many boons you get after the person has voted.
