Hi, everybody! DHO back in the house and just in time for another Auxy Tournament! This time, I’ll be running things with co-hosts, @stereofield and @BobTheGUYYYYY, as well as a different mystery guest judge every round.
How it Works
So, as stated in the previous tournament: Players 1-4 are in the tournament. Player 1 ends up against Player 2, and 3 against 4. If Player 1 beats 2, and Player 4 beats 3, then the two winners (1 and 4) will compete.
In this instance, however, there are 32 players.
You will be judged out of ten points in the following categories:
Creativity - How unique is the song compared to other Auxy tracks? It’s good to have a balance. Sure you can randomly place notes and make automation, and, although it may be different, it’s not necessarily pleasing to listen to.
Composition - How good is the actual composition, when you take out all the automation etc.?
Accuracy: How much you stuck to the challenge’s rules.
Execution: How well did you execute all the ideas you tried to pull off? How is the instrument choice? Mixing?
This time around, we will be testing your skills in certain areas of producing, bringing on a guest judge who we believe to have a good amount of knowledge in that area. They will not only test your production skills, but also allow you to reflect on the season in music as we move along.
A few rules: If you wish to use any samples, please check with judges first. Individual hits are generally okay but please no sampled phrases. Work should be predominately completed in Auxy. Additionally, this time around there will be no extensions for late entries. The deadlines will not be extended and you will be disqualified if you do not meet the deadline.
The two finalists will get a to display next to your username. The other semi finalists will also get unicorns. There will also be a repost for the winning track given by the Auxy Collective.
Always next time
Running tournaments is sort of a hobby of mine, so if you can’t enter this time around, it’s not too late. There will be a seventh Auxy Tournament.
Sign ups are now closed.
Good luck all! We will post the first challenge as soon as soon as we can after the tournament fills up.
