Quote from: Bloop on August 20, 2017, 10:51:23 AMDoesn't that kinda take out the fun of the arranging contest? I think it could lead to situations where the arranging-deprived person is unsatisfied with the end result.
I think the best solution for that version of Olimar12345's idea is for both members of each pair to send ideas to their partner and their partner to make the arrangement.

For example, this would be valid:
Wah and Levi are paired.
Wah assigns the idea "Waltz version of at least two Mega Man themes" to Levi.
Levi assigns the idea "Fugue on the Heavy Lobster theme" to Wah.
Wah has to make a remix that fits Levi's idea.
Levi has to make a remix that fits Wah's idea.

This wouldn't:
Dekka and Latios212 are paired.
Dekka assigns the idea "Credits version of 'To Zanarkand'" to Latios212.
Latios212 doesn't assign an idea to anyone but has to make a remix that fits Dekka's idea.

How would we score that, then? Would we allow the partner to score the other's work in addition to the judges & each person has their own separate score? Or...?

Honestly, it doesn't sound very doable.
When given the choice between adulting and music, choose music every time.

I'll start a poll tommorrow or so, just to get things rolling a bit

Throwing another idea out there: rewriting in weird time sigs
Quote from: NocturneOfShadow on February 11, 2016, 03:00:36 PMthere's also a huge difference in quality between 2000 songs and 2010 songs
Quote from: Latios212 on February 11, 2016, 03:29:24 PMThe difference between 2000 songs and 2010 songs is 10 songs.

Ooh, like taking 4/4 songs and making a jazz version in 5/4! I just learned what it's called, but I forget.

Yeah, let's put that into the contest poll!

(Lord knows how many versions of King Dedede's theme I've improvised at some point, though. There are boring 4/4 and 3/4 versions, there's the swing version that sounds like it's in 6/8 time, there's the 5/4 one in the style of Meta Knight's theme, there's the 7/8 one in a 2+2+3 Santorini-like grouping, there's the 7/8 one in a 3+2+2 Marching Season-like grouping...(yeah, I like Yanni music and just referred to two of them...))

I'd be down for changing 4/4 songs into weird time signatures.
My Arrangements (All Outdated)
My Compositions (All Outdated)
Quote from: WaluigiTime64I strive for second place and I will fight for the position.

Yeah, I like this idea the best and to be honest, it's probably the only one I could even semisuccessfully pull off.

Also adding a poll right now. Should help us and more members decide if they want to enter, judge, or ignore it completely!

Edit: you can chose up to two themes

I honestly think Weird Time sig & Jazzify it could be combined if it came down to it, seeing as they're the only 2 with any votes & they both have 3

EDIT: Well, they're no longer tied.
