Ah you've set this into motion, I'll tell anyone I think would be interested bout it so. Maybe they'd fill the judging spot if they can't put the time in for a level.
Nice one superBlast :)

yes i have. i'm hoping to get more submissions in then last time. though i keep thinking i'm missing something in the first post. it's probably nothing though.

and i'm sorry i interupted your temple project, 49DRA, but i didn't want to wait too long to put up the second one. lol

nice, I hope you get some combatants to join this fight :arg:

I, however, am not going to join this, because i'm kinda not playing LBP lately :p

I might, this time around as well, but i'm not sure as my levels have been getting the "thermo auto-fill" glitch :/
Right now i can't work on anything as the thermo fills up when i work on any level, but if i can i will enter.

it would be great if you could enter. because your last entry was pretty good and it would be nice to hear another good one from you

also, to everyone, i set how the prizes will be given in the first post

Pitcard
04-21-2009, 08:00 PM
Nice! Those are some generous prizes. I hope more than 3 people actually enter tho! :D

superBlast
04-21-2009, 08:05 PM
me too lol. anyways we had 4 entries last time so if we get 4 again (or more i hope) it'll work. if i get less then 4 entries i probably won't make number 3.

04-21-2009, 08:55 PM
This sounds cool. Hopefully I'll get a chance a make a tune this weekend, though I've never tried before. :)

Sounds cool, but I suck at music levels. How will you get 1500xp, when you only have 143 at the moment?!

Pitcard
04-21-2009, 09:09 PM
Umm... good question dawes, can you dish out 3 loads of XP prizes with just one XP Purchase?? I might be able to help out with the prizes although I'm low on xp at the moment, I'll earn it back soon enough :)

Sure its never too late to start! If you need some ideas about how to create music levels, check out the first contest. Each entry is pretty unique so there's tonnes to learn from them.

superBlast
04-21-2009, 09:49 PM
not to worry because only 500xp comes out of my pocket to buy the exp share item. cartman himself gives the the exp. i just pm him the winner's names and he gives you the exp. also as far as i know it's 1 exp share per contest.

RangerZero
04-22-2009, 12:17 PM
I'd participate as a judge. Your contest is interesting but I don't have that much time to actually make a music level.

Sosaku
04-22-2009, 02:05 PM
I might have a go at this. After messing around for a while I think I actually found a really simple and easy may of making a musical stage. The problem is working with the same tune for so many hours will probably drive me crazy.

Pitcard
04-22-2009, 03:27 PM
Hehe that's just why I need a break! Listening to those loops over and over seriously tested my sanity O_o But it was a also a break from making a story heavy platform level.

Astrosimi
04-22-2009, 05:37 PM
Well, superblast, I'd like to judge this one again if you don't mind ;)

Pitcard
04-22-2009, 06:31 PM
Umm.. I'll leave it up to superBlast but Ranger also wants the judge position and posted before you.

superBlast
04-22-2009, 08:20 PM
i'm sorry Astrosimi but Ranger Zero did post first so he's gonna be the judge. but if Zero ends up being like Zommy and not give me any scores you can fill in for him

TheJollyRajah
04-22-2009, 11:34 PM
I don't know if I have time for this, just like I didn't have time for the first contest. I don't know really... I would've volunteered for judge duty, but that seems taken at this point.

Will I make a level? I don't know. MAYBE. Not sure. I have a lot going on right now... you know, work, college, and all the other garbage that occupies my life. I REALLY want to participate though... The prizes look mighty fine.

RangerZero

You seem to have had some bad experience with that guy. lol

Don't worry, i'm reliable most of the time. :p j/k, kidding, i'm reliable.

I suppose we will have all the contender levels lined up and ready before we actually judge them right?

Sosaku
04-23-2009, 08:48 AM
Isn't it possible to have more than one judge?

RangerZero

There's 3 judges already.

Yup once the deadlines up we'll make a list and we can judge them out of ten or whatever. The judging will only be based on the music, so whether the levels flashy or not... doesn't matter :P

Guess what, i am entering after all!
Auto termo fill glitch doesn't seem to affect new lwvels, and i'm almost done with my level :D

Cool! Funnily enough... I've never seen you round here, but you've been a member since september!??

crazymario
04-26-2009, 06:17 PM
I might actually try this. I've never really never made a music level before, so let's see what happens...

hilightnotes
04-26-2009, 06:44 PM
Cool! Funnily enough... I've never seen you round here, but you've been a member since september!??

Yeah.. I signed up, posted a bit, disappeared, and have now returned! :)
It's a great community here. So I'll probably stick around this time. Get used to it! :D

Silverleon
04-26-2009, 07:10 PM
No one has entered anything yet?
And i already finished mine...
Well, guess this time i catually got time to make it a bit more presentable,well at least more than the last one :D
Btw changed the name of the 1st one to "Yamikaze (Dark Wind)"

crazymario
04-26-2009, 07:22 PM

Nice I'm lookin forward to hearing it. You can spend as much time as you want polishing it, we're not gonna judge you on that, but I encourage people to spruce them up a bit just for the sake of making it more enjoyable for the sackpeople playing it!


Well, I guess I better get started...
Since Leon's already done, the deadline will be 3 weeks from the day he submits his. So in a way its up to him :P..

superBlast
04-27-2009, 09:04 PM
leon could you please wait maybe a day or two before you enter your song? i wanna get more people to umm... sign up before a deadline is set.

and thanks Pit for answering the posts. i was gonna answer them until i saw your post so thanks

also, can't wait to hear what you come up with, crazymario and hilightnotes :)

No one has summited anything still?
lol, don't worry, i don't want to be the first to submit an entry, for a certain reason.
So everyone still has plenty of time.
Unless of course that a month later no one submits...
Then i guess i'll have no choice but to publish it huh?

yeah your right. i would probably cancel the contest at that point lol.
then again i think i waited that long last contest

Silverleon
04-28-2009, 11:54 PM
Cancell?!:cry:
I'll just wait a couple of days then, just so people actually start working on whatever they were working, having a deadline will actually give them a reason to work on it >:]

hilightnotes
04-29-2009, 02:05 AM
I've started working on mine :)

I don't have lots of time though, but I think even if you submitted yours now I would have time to finish.

superBlast
04-29-2009, 03:07 AM
i said i might. (meaning i won't no matter how long it takes)

but you can post whenever you want. it's up to you, leon.

hilightnotes
05-01-2009, 12:33 AM
I'm almost finished my song. It will clock in at around 1 minute in length. Does that sound good to you guys?

superBlast
05-01-2009, 02:59 AM
yeah that sounds good. hope it's good

hilightnotes
05-01-2009, 03:10 AM
I hope so too ;)

But really, I think it's good. It's not easy coming up with a decent songs given the available sounds!

I didn't do anything particularly innovative though, but the song itself is good and I figured out a simple way of getting notes to fade out at some points.

Pitcard
05-01-2009, 05:48 PM
Awesome, two people with songs ready to be submitted, I think crazymario might have one up soon. Hopefully killian and some other people will have the time to make one.

If no one else submits, I'll see about finding more people with some musical interest.

hilightnotes
05-01-2009, 08:56 PM
So should I submit mine? I'm all done :)

Silverleon
05-01-2009, 09:19 PM
Hehe, still got 3 more weeks to keep making my level better and better :D

hilightnotes
05-03-2009, 04:14 AM
So judges, you can find my level by searching my psn name (hilightnotes). I think it's called "Original Composition - Flyin Through".

Hope you like it!

deboerdave
05-04-2009, 04:29 AM
hi all

i will be entering too.

i got a level in the works now

pretty much done just need to work out a few things, but will definitely get it done in time.

Silverleon
05-04-2009, 04:34 AM
Well, we got 3, and will probably be 4 or 5 in total.

Pitcard
05-04-2009, 01:41 PM
Welcome aboard dave. Its good that we have 3 for definite. Hopefully more people will join up soon.

Good job getting yours up Hilight, I've already checked it out but we're only gonna start the judging once the deadlines up and all the entries are submitted. It'll be less biased then.

Assuming that HilightNotes submitted his one 3 days ago, the deadline is the 25th of May! (3 weeks after the 1st submitted level)

We may stretch it out if we're waiting on someone who's got a level in its final stages. Its all up to superBlast though, its his contest!

I'll have to check yours out dave, you've always got some interesting musical ideas cookin :)
Johnrulz and crazymario, do your best to get something together, the more submissions the better the chance of a 3rd contest :)

superBlast
05-09-2009, 03:51 AM
ok sorry i haven't been on lately. yes the deadline is the 25th. i'm not gonna check 'em until the 25th because if i check them now i'll have too much of an urge to judge them. =)

anyways i hope everyone that haven't submitted yet makes it in time.

Silverleon
05-09-2009, 04:02 AM
I shall wait a bit longer if that's ok, i'll tell you why afterwards.

05-09-2009, 04:04 AM

I have a music level already published:

Level Name: Stairway To Heaven
PSN: Leather-Monkeys
Description: Re-creating the song "Stairway to Heaven" by Led Zepplin

If it is agaisnt the rules to submit a level already published then I have another music level thats half-done on my moon, i'll carry on and submit that one! Please PM me if this is the case :)

and a POSSIBLE beat,

You mean not using an already existing song right? :)
And yes, this is caled original misic contest after all.
Meaning no remixes or remakes of already existing songs.

Pitcard
05-11-2009, 09:45 PM
Yep, leather-monkies is gonna have to submit an original song of his own :S I've already pm'd him though ^^

Silverleon
05-11-2009, 09:48 PM
Wait, now that i think about it, why are you giving the deadline if you're planning to wait until everyone's done?
If you have a deadline you should stick to it. >_>

Pitcard
05-11-2009, 09:54 PM
Well the deadline IS strict. We're expecting everyone who wants to participate to have their levels in by then!... but say if we only got 2 submissions... we'd probably consider waiting for a few more if they're still working on it. But it seems like we have a lot more people this time :D... so definitely submit yours before the 25th!! :D

johnrulz77
05-11-2009, 09:57 PM

i'm not gonna wait for everyone to get done. if they don't submit before the deadline then they'll have to wait for the 3rd contest. (if there is a 3rd one. probley will though)

I actually got the music finished for my level but I'm still trying to come up with a way of presenting it... Not sure if I want to just have the music play in some sort of layer, create a psuedo-level as a sort of visual backdrop or try and build a proper level for it. hmmm...

Anyone got any suggestions on how to present it?

Well, we won't be judging for presentation at all, the music is what matters. But it is a good idea to make the level user-friendly. And sure, spend as much time with sprucing the level up as you want. I'll PM you a few ideas if I have any ok?

Hey, you should check out the levels from the 1st music competition. Maybe you'll get some ideas on constructing the music etc :) My levels in there aswell if you wanna check it out.

hey zommy your back. i was wondering what happened you. but yeah like pit said ranger zero took the last spot. sorry. still i'm glad your back :)

also to pit, i will probably make #3 after this. i only reason i can think of that would keep me from making #3 is if my lbp disc gets messed up.

and to korndawg, welcome aboard the contest. i like surprise entries. (that would be you since you never said anything about entering.) i'll check your and everyone else's level out as soon as the 26th comes along.

i think i foregot to mention, but you can make a last minute submission on the 25th. but as soon it hits midnight (EST) no one will be able to submit to the contest. (sorry but rules are rules.) i thought i should say that just in case, you know?

Do you have a multi-track recorder? The best I can do with is a four-track analogue recorder, still works.

its ok to change the song name if you want. as long as its the same one.

looks like i'm gonna have to dust off my lbp disc soon so i can judge. also i will make Original Music Contest 3 as soon as i make 500xp to get the exp. share.

good luck everyone and if your planning to enter then your better hurry up before the deadline comes.

its ok to change the song name if you want. as long as its the same one.

looks like i'm gonna have to dust off my lbp disc soon so i can judge. also i will make Original Music Contest 3 as soon as i make 500xp to get the exp. share.

good luck everyone and if your planning to enter then your better hurry up before the deadline comes.

Hang on, so you cannot change the entry?

Um.. I'm gonna say its perfectly fine korndawg. First of all, I don't think anyone has played the first one you entered yet... Maybe you should edit or delete your post with your first level in it, so there's no confusion when we're judging.

I'll probably go through the thread and make a list of the levels to PM to the judges cause it'd be harder for superBlast to do it on his ps3.

One of us should simply list the entries with the level names and PSN ids and send a PM of the list for all the judges. Simplicity! :)

Ok then, being the last day, its published now!

Name: Hyougen (Snow Field)
PSN: Yarudark

At least this one its a bit more presentable, unlike "Yamikase (Dark wind) which is just pure darkness. :p

Well.. Seems like there's only 4 entries after all. But thats still one better than the first contest :)

I think music contest 3 will be well worth it, seems like me, silverleon and deboerdave are regulars, and Korndawwg already has a level made that he can still submit for contest 3. And I'm sure more people will participate once it comes around.

Right judges, I've already made a pm out listing the 4 levels and their creators. So if there's no surprise last minute entries, I'll be sending that out later tonight.

How many days we have for judging?

Its up to superBlast. But I'm gonna have to get all the judging done within the week, exams start next week ¬_¬......

Ooh.. are we just marking each level out of 10? It'd be the easiest way to mark it.. then we just add the 3 sets of marks up to give a total out of 30.

The whole world will be judged that day! :P

Ok I should say this since superBlast's internet is down atm:

The deadline is welllll up, and we've received Four Music Levels from you guys, ready for a' judgin!

Me and Ranger should be done judging by the 1st of June and I'll announce the winner then if we're on schedule.

Hopefully superBlast will have his internet sorted soon enough because I think he's the one who has to give out the prize.

RangerZero

Results are supposed to pop anytime soon. I know Superblast is having connection problems though so I guess it might be delayed?

Anyhow, I sent my scores so my part is done :)

I'll be announcing the winner tomorrow :)
Sorry I would have done it today, only I've got exams on wednesday and had to get a lot of cramming done.

Seems like superBlast hasn't got his internet back online yet, so I'm just gonna go ahead and announce the winner tomorrow. And as I mentioned before, there could be a delay for the 1st prize, as super has to be here to hand that out.

Anyhow, good work all of you! You've all put some thought into this and come up with interesting compositions.

Probably woulda been better if superBlast had given the job to RangerZero, he's a much more reliable guy :P

Anywho, just did English paper 1 today, and I'm pretty happy with how I did ^^
So now to see how well our contestants did!

I'm gonna give a breakdown of what I thought about each level and then announce the winner, because I think its only fair that each of you get a mention because you all composed such different songs with unique ideas :)
(in order of submission)


Flyin Through by Hilightnotes

Although it uses the traditional method of pushing a block along, it works perfectly fine. The timing is kept and the structure of the song itself I found very solid. You've implemented a new method for letting certain parts of the song fade out, which I found very clever and was a nice subtle touch to the piece.
Personally, I really enjoyed the melodies. I'm big into electronic music, and to me your interlaced chirpy upbeat melodies reminded me of 8-bit or chiptune music. Great job Hilight!



Musicman by Deboerdave

Very interesting musical ideas here. I like how you left it to the player to play with the music in a sort of a musical sandbox. I managed to get a glimpse of what was going on in the background and the mechanics involved in generating your loops. Its all very well implemented especially the player following device. It's an ideal invention in this case because it allows the player to go off and explore the different musical devices in the level without losing the main backing. I liked how you used some other sound effects to create some interesting music loops such as the screaming and breaking noises ^^
I found the level slightly cluttered though, but that shouldn't take away from the musical experience too much. Nice ideas Dave!


Ephemeral Dream by KoRnDawwg

A very solid yet innovative composition. I found your timing really well done, generally there are tiny inaccuracies in LBP's engine and I find even if you do everything to grid, it still won't be perfect. But you've done a really great job with the rhythm and timing of this piece. Its in 6/8 time (if I'm not mistaken :S), so great job in achieving that. I liked your use of piano and drums, even if it sounded a bit sparse, it certainly suited the piece. The melodies were well crafted and unusual.
I also noticed you used some lightening sound effects with really helped build the tension in the piece. Nice one Dawwg!


Hyougen (Snow Field) by SilverLeon (Yarudark)

Yet again, it really shows that you play piano! For a piano only composition, its very complex and free flowing. Its got some fast fluttering scales and some bold melodies. But its also got some really delicate harmonies that you might only notice after listening a few times. I thought that the tempo was a little iffy at certain bits, but for such an ambient piano piece I don't think that really pulls the piece down. I really liked the very last bit, but was perhaps cut a bit short. Beautiful stuff none the less Leon!

Sorry if I'm boring you ¬_¬ anywhoooo.....

...................*drum roll*.................

and the winner is............

Err... this is all I have for you right now. SuperBlast is the in charge of handing out the prize :S



And sorry bout the little delay, I hope superBlast is back up here soon to check out your awesome levels.

Silverleon
06-03-2009, 07:43 PM
Psst, Pitcard, you forgot abot 2nd & 3rd place m8.
You only mentioned 1st.

KoRnDawwg
06-03-2009, 08:02 PM
LOL, just about to say that 0_0

Well, um, thank you very much! I loved every entry here (excluding my own), nice work everyone ^^*

Pitcard
06-03-2009, 08:35 PM
I dunno how you all feel bout only announcing first place but I'll just copy and paste what I said to Silverleon :P


Well I was only gonna announce first place, as theres only one prize.

And since theres 4 of you, it'd be kinda crappy to give 2nd and 3rd and then one person is left out
Plus I left a description of how I felt about each piece, I think you are all equally accomplished, just Korndawwg got the most points

Besides, I don't wanna ruin superblasts contest, he just asked if I could take over :P

I'll leave it up to superBlast >__>

If i'm in the mood I might even do a song for the next one.

Erm... Did I not send you a PM announcing the deadline???
Seriously sorry if I didn't.

But theres always Round 3, and if superblast ain't back up here to do round 3. I'll make it myself :D There's no rules against submitting something you already had done before the contest as long as you haven't submitted it before.

Silverleon
06-13-2009, 07:50 PM
