Soundevotion Competition is celebrating 10 years in existence! As part of the celebration, organic io and A-Lin have taken it upon ourselves to make lossless renders of every single song ever entered into the competition and make them publicly available on the Internet Archive.
Why? – Because currently the old SDCompo site only hosts the source files for the songs. It does support links to rendered songs, but as they get older the links are becoming more and more useless.
Not everyone wants to go download trackers to listen to these songs, and many of the rounds used multiple vst’s that need to be installed. Some rounds have entries from Renoise, Psycle, Buzz, and Modplug all in the same round! In some rare cases, people used commercial vst’s not included in the pack and were either disqualified or went unnoticed. We still want these songs to be heard.
Our goal is to get all the songs in one place where they can be enjoyed in high quality lossless format! This will also serve to archive the SDCompo for many years to come, as long as we can trust the Internet Archive to exist!
The project is now in public beta. We are very near completion of rendering the first 89 rounds (from the old site). Once we finish the first 89 rounds, we’ll catch up to 100 and stay current from there.
During rendering, we strived for accuracy and, as much as possible, used the current version of each tracker that was available upon the song’s release. (Very important for Renoise)
However, the render project still needs your help! With 2 guys rendering 1000+ songs, mistakes are a very real possibility. If you are listening to a song and you notice there is anything wrong with it, please let us know…
Examples: “Doesn’t sound right”, “Ends at the wrong place”, etc…
We will do our best to fix any errors.
Status updates will be posted as we complete rounds.
Completed Rounds – 79/89………(89.89%)
Incomplete Rounds – 10/89……..(10.11%)
