SUBMIT A TRACK
Submitted tracks will be posted to this page as they come in. Format your track title like this: "NGHH'11 - Comp - Username" Make sure your track description contains what is required from the comp you are entering.
NG Sample Battle
No submissions yet.
Every element in this submission needs to be sampled from the NG audio portal, even the drums and bass. In your submission note which tracks you sampled and what you sampled, then link to it. If you can't explain where a sound came from you will be disqualified. Also, don't just copy and paste tracks together, really try to cut them up and turn your samples into something new.
No submissions yet.
For this comp an MC needs to partner up with a producer to double team a track. The MC's need to use as many of the words as they can and will be judged on correct usage, pronunciation, and the quality of your rhymes among other things. The producer has to build their track with the Sounds to Include. You can have more stuff in your track, as long as you hit upon each sound. These don't need to be samples, you can try and just mimic something. In the track description MC's need to post their lyrics and producers need to explain what they did for each sound.
MC Topic: Hip Hop is not Dead
MC Words to use: megalomania, vicissitude, WikiLeaks, Ithyphallophobia, Dr. Strangelove, floccinaucinihilipilification, Occam's Razor, serotonin, Charlie Sheen, syncopation
Producers sounds to include: Film Noir, Miles Davis, and a Cartoon theme song.
Download the sample pack here: http://www.mediafire.com/?sjq6t585ksiw dfi
You can ONLY use audio from this pack. You must use the drums and bass in the kit, you may NOT use anything of your own. In the track description describe what samples you used and what you did with them. Diversity is key, try to really chop these things up and mash them all together. Transitions and a beat that varies is nice too. Download and get choppin!
The Shoulders of Giants
No submissions yet.
This is a comp for producers and the end result should be an instrumental track dedicated to a famous hip hop producer. There are no rules regarding what audio you use in these submissions. VSTs, your own recording, samples, whatever. You have to mimic the style of the hip hop producer you chose. In your track description you need to link to a few examples from this producer and then explain what you did that was based on their work

My friend just linked me to this, and I thought it would be a good idea to share it with the rest of you guys.
(just make sure to read the fine print as Im sure they rape you of all your rights to whatever you are submitting)
Anyways, I was getting Some voting fatigue with all the front page posting turning into
"Hey guys, sign up to a site you'll never visit again, and vote on my submission to a contest I didn't tell anyone else about to better my chances! lol"
I thought I'd mix it up and post the actual contest first.
I think I might be submitting to this as well, but vote for me ONLY if you like what I've submitted.

Been quietly chipping away at Madness Divinity. Unfortunately I got caught up in other projects and missed the deadline. The good news is I ended up adding an extra 30-40 seconds of story. It really gives it more of a short movie vibe than say With my Minds madness. Its the least I can do after Bjra kicked so much ass with the song he created for this short. Also, I plan to have Hank talk in this one, which is a nono I know, but it really adds some much needed gravitas to the action.Tomamoto is taking a shot at Hank and I cant wait to see what he comes up with. I still need one more voice though. The voice of God. Or Goddess, since its a female . If anyone out there can do a nice earthy Female voice. Something Similar to the Voice of the Locust queen in Gears or War or, the Borg Queen from Star Trek First Contact. i would love to hear from ya.
Originally MD was suppose to be released on Madness Day, but alot of my free time was being used to edit a short movie for a local contest in Philly. That contest has long come and gone, but I was never happy with the submission as some of the scenes were incomplete. I had forgotten to buy this for doing my composition shots, so now I have to manually mask each frame. It did get get props for best music and animation. So let me take a minute to thank xKore for letting me use his music on that short. I should have that short up on youtube in a few weeks. Also a big thanks to the voice actors, Sapphire did an excellent job
Artist/ programmer Bromance
After my next project I'm looking for a programmer to go steady with :3 Something hot and Steamy like the TommyUtah or the BomLuis love. Someone whos good at making all sorts of games, but is partial to Brawlers, fighters, and beat'emUps. I have a platformer/brawler puzzle game Idea that Id like to share with someone's who has the time and is also committed.
Ohh yeah GasMasQ's albums out!

I plan to make another madness flash, it will be probably be my last madness tribute so I really would like to go all out and start working on it asap. Heres the thing. The idea i have for this flash requires a specific sound. Something thats Holy, yet technical, and glitchy. Something powerful, yet fast paced enough to animate some action too.
This one SONG in particular would've been perfect if not for the fact that it uses FinalFantasty music, and its short,.. and a bit shallow, but as an example of what Im looking for its perfect. In fact this song was the inspiration for the story in my head as well as the title "Madness Divinity."
So If Someone could come up with a similar sound, I would send them the outline of the flash and they could add the highs and lows needed to accompany the action.
Im looking for something with a lot of choirs and hymns mixed with a fast paced vibe, layered with alot of dubstep, and glitching.
other samples that have I have liked:
the other dimension
call them rogues
*EDIT* Bjra just sent me an edit that just knocked me on my ass.
there were some really close ones, and you know who you are, but it looks like Im rolling with Bjra on this one, thanks to all that submitted so fast.
PS: a big LOL, to the douché who locked himself out trying to get into my account. IPs dumbass, we can see em.

The first Robot Day went on without a hitch, for the most part, so let me take a moment to congratulate all the winners, and let you guys know that once Tom gets back from Comic-con he'll be writing out them checks asap!
Now for any of the winners that would rather have store credit instead, just reply to this post and I'll hook you up!.
So far Store Credit given to:
I'm already hearing ideas on how we plan to make the next Robot Day even more exciting!!
Also I had a minigame for robotday that kinda fell through the cracks, but it should be up on the site hopefully be the end of next week. So keep a look out for that.
Posted by MindChamber - June 10th, 2010
Just a friendly Reminder, Our first ever Robot Day Kicks off July 10th. That's exacly one month away!
Lets make it the most kickass NG holiday ever!
This time the Prizes have been broken up evenly into five categories
Movie, Game, Music, Art, and Writing
Its 250.00 for first place
40.00 for second
30.00 for third redeemable in cash or store credit.
Then theres the 500.00 bonus prize for the movie (or game), that does the best job of collaborating with users from other categories , kinda like Power of 3, but for movies as well.
Deadline is July 10th 11:59PM eastern Standard time
really try and make it.
All Movie submissions must have the Robot Day 2010 preloader splash which will be released the week before.
All Music submissions must have "robotday2010" in the description, or "rd2010" in the title.
you should also link to it here in the Robot Day Audio thread
All Writing submissions are being posted in the Robot Day writing thread.
All Art submissions must have "robotday2010" in their tags when submitting to the art portal, as well as be submitted to the Robot Day Art Thread
all these threads link to discussions threads where you can get advice or get suggestions on your work before officially submitting .
at this time, I haven't made a discussion thread for the animation forum, as animators tend keep their ideas close to the chest until the final reveal, but if you guys want one, and think it would help, let me know.
Also please try and make something original for RobotDay. Granted Robots are a very popular subject, and I'm sure theres already work you have that pertains to them, but we want something fresh.
In the meantime Im working on the sidebanner art for robotday, its going to be a collage of all the Robots that run newgrounds, heres a WIP of PBOT almost finished, the rest are outlined and have flat colors but I liked how this looked with the ruffs in the background . you'll see the finished piece on robot day, JEAH!
