Bad Snake Hair Day and Medusa VSTi appeared

Bad Snake Hair Dayy.jpgµB created a fancy square wave VSTi called Medusa. BotB then hosted a competition where BotBrs were only allowed to use that as a sound source in their favorite software. The use of effects were encouraged but sampling was discouraged.

There are 10 entries.
Check them out and vote to help decide the winner.

BotB and it’s resident BotBrs invites any and all to participate, listen and/or vote in BotB’s fourth annual Winter Chip competition.  As always, this year’s compo has added even more chiptune formats totalling at a balmy sixteen.  That’s right!!  16 different ways to share yer skillz in chip.  Each participant can submit an entry to each category if their heart so desires.
Submission Deadline :: March 9th
Voting will follow for ten days.
Categories this year are :: heart-magic, brain-tech, bleep-squeeze, deep-tweak & oh-noes-my-pants!
Results will be posted March 20.
This is the first competition to be hosted by BotB’s new engine.  Over six months ago a great effort was initiated by lead developer puke7 to give BotB an actual framework to stand on.  This has successfully brought about reducing database call redundancies, decreasing load times, and making BotB not a complete pain in the ass to update.  All code was started from scratch again.  Old site features are still springing up.
All n00bz!! =D/
