Holy Moley my song won the contest lmao I didnt expect

Posted by VortexSupernova - June 5th, 2021

Update to: https://vortexsupernova.newgrounds.com/news/post/1155536


Yearly, LMMS community has a tradition to make a yearly contest called "The Best of LMMS" which showcases the songs in the results using "the most ambitious DAW ever coded /s" -Lost Robot, developer

Out of the more than 200 submissions, less than 30 are chosen (25, the few others are honorable mentions)

And I am of them but

bruh, 24th place XD

Thanks to @RealGDJK for the ping, I was drawing and I forgot the results due in 1 day but I didn't care because I didn't expect it'll go through. I was confuzzled when I saw that lmao, the newer submissions are way more impressive than the previous years, and the judging has to go brrrrrrrr.

I forgot to say this: congratulations for the winners but also, congratulations to all who participated and learned from others and their own mistakes

I didn't expect to win or even belong in preliminaries, honestly the mixing is still unfinished because the entirety of the song has to be finished in 1 week and I'm still on school, but I got to make it through the 2 contests this song as been to:

Art Union (which it lost) and Best of LMMS

Last January, I got my song Serenade no.1 to Newgrounds frontpaged audio:

At the Production text channel of LMMS community Discord, I posted a few songs where some people find impressive. Hmm, my mind was set to few years ago and did not notice at all I was at a great growth starting this year. I'm perplexed when people find my stuff good. Well, I think, I need a reality check.

This is the song btw

I'm disappointed this got lesser views AND rating than the pre-master one ex dee



Mission failed, you’ll get’em next time (dead meme I know)

At least you learned a thing or two, it’s better than not participating at all. Don’t let it bring you down.

Aww ye. I'm disappointed I didn't lose as I expected. Indeed I learned from others and myself as well!

Ah you just made the list. XD For a moment I thought you were THE ONE!

But still, that's really cool.

As for the master mix getting less views, I guess maybe it's that people had seen the other one recently too; didn't really differentiate as they should have... at least I know I didn't. Thought it was maybe just a re-upload at first. But maybe it's more so just unlucky timing. A lot of other music. Who knows...

24th place in around 200 btw, that makes you part of the top 12%. The uppermost 1/8. Not bad at all!!!

Hmm yea thats what I was also thinking, that they knew its a reupload xd but I don't mind as much. Not really that bad indeed, even though only until 25th are chosen and I'm 24th haha. I submitted in this contest since 2018 where it was less competitive and I wasn't even in honorable mentions

Hehe yeah but better think about those 200 more than the 25. XD Sounds like either the community event's getting less traction now or you're really getting better and better, probably the latter! ;)

The community is getting better, the submissions in total are 250. Back then, less submissions, having a pretty ok chord progression and sound design can make you to the lists, and the submission from the last place doesnt really feel good mmm. Nowadays, even the last among who went first elimination is not bad, is actually pretty decent, and your song has to be really good to make it to until honorable mentions. Not only the community is getting better, but also the software/DAW I'm using (which held the contest). Back then you can't use any VST's.

Good to hear. Are you joining in next time too? Hopefully steady climbing with each of these if so.

Hopefully... if I'm still alive next year or I'm fine, I'm getting better in mixing and mastering and I would like to test my limits. I just have to choose which song would work and that's the hard part.

Woah now, do hope you're alive at least! And relatively fine. All things relative.

Mmm, if you ever want a second opinion on something like that feel free to reach out, though I'm sure you'd be the better selector anyway.

Heeey random owl video: https://youtu.be/71PD2f1ogyk

Thought you might appreciate.

Woah, you won BoL! I didn't even know it was there until the judges announced that the judgement is taking a really long time.

ah yeah, I did not even expect to get into winning list. Someone in SoundCloud just tole me to put this on BoL, so I did XD
assume this reply is posted 3 days after you commented.

Hey, another random video for ya: https://youtu.be/GKNB7Eid-ek

How is everything lately? Hopefully alright?

Hey thanks! I really enjoyed these vids, and the Yoshi lick being my most favorite ? I just returned yesterday bc I deleted Chrome data in my phone (I usually use NG in my phones browser) and - woh - the emotes have changed! Finally the LMAO react getting its deserved right emote but I would really miss the old ones

I reaaally liked this one too! XD Caught me by surprise.

Welcome back! Just noticed those emotes too, though I used to use the 'laughing' emoji as a more so 'very happy' emoji, before they had a label for it, so suddenly a ton of my older posts and comments are probably even more misleading than they were before this last upgrade. XD Reminds you how easy it is for historical things to change just depending on new norms and context. Nothing's forever. All's relative. But they do look pretty smooth...
