A total of 5 people voted. As promised, I didn't vote myself as I know the names, but my top choices would have been P.F.M., Water Beeplets, and Moving Day (seriously guys, this one is awesome, just listen with bass properly turned up).

Well, thanks to everybody who participated. Due to low turnout I'm afraid I won't repeat this experiment any time soon.

Re: 1-Bit Forum Compo: Results

Thanks a lot utz for organising the compo. As you say, it was a bit disappointing that more people didn't participate, but personally I really enjoyed entering.

Now to write something for octode 2k15 or quattropic smile

Re: 1-Bit Forum Compo: Results

yes, it's always a pleasure to feel the urge to finish a new composition in time, it really motivates me to create.
The forum is new, 1-bit music is maybe a niche market (really?? wink ) so we can't expect many more participants. It was a good thing to organise this comp after the forum creation. Maybe a new one next year will be relevant too (but not before, there will be BoTB anyway). Thanks Utz.

Re: 1-Bit Forum Compo: Results

Yes that's true, the time constraint to finish a composition for a compo really does motivate and focus you.
Boiled Down, Water Beeplets and Glitch! were written very quickly on a Friday night after some beers (I think it shows though) smile

Thinking about it, 1-bit is a very niche market, probably even on the fringes on chipmusic fans taste.

But once you're in, you're hooked wink

Re: 1-Bit Forum Compo: Results

The was supposed to be one in november, but I didn't have time to organize it after all. Next good chance would be in early spring, after Winter Chip has finished on Battle of the Bits.
In the meantime, perhaps you would like to participate in the Beeper compo at DiHalt 2017 Lite: http://dihalt.org.ru/rules5_eng.html#zx ?
