You can vote for Dubstep/Drumstep and DnB, but not for the other 2 yet cause there's a link missing for each one.

Correct Song Title

@Pyzarix. Hi Pyz,
My .caustic file is titled "The Bishops Battle", because it's from a music score of mine. The track title is" Digital Sunset " as shown in the link. Would you rename the song to its correct title, "Digital Sunset", please? Thank you in advance. --JE

I may not be joining the faster BPM competition next time. No ones there.

No, but I think it'll be a good idea to do it tho, idk. Like, to send votes through messages and let it be a secret until the due date. Thanks for the idea @Subkonchess, I'll see if we do it for next time and see how well does it go, to know if we should continue voting like that or sometimes, or a one time only.

Subkonchess said "Well ---- we need peeps to vote period 11000 members or something like that and 5 votes?"

There may be 11k members, but I would safely say that 90% of them sign up just to grab the freebies and move on, missing out on the variety of goldmine of projects and collabs and discussions that go on here....  There are realistically more like 200-300 members that actually hang out here regularily and <100 that actively participate and contribute something of substance on this forum....

At this moment there are about 15 people active here right now, so of that, the interest of those people checking in on these competition threads are going to give you the number that you see..... things like this may take a bit of time to manifest themselves and eventually gain interest, if that is the appeal, of which time will tell.

Just a thought to chew on....

@pyzarix for the next

@pyzarix for the next competition there are a few of trying to get a head start and had a couple questions. If you can't or don't want to answer that fine. First question. Are the rules the same? Because I think the loop rule should be tossed or maybe a loop minimum. And the whole genre thing. What will be the participating genres. And how about adding a best overall track with all genres participating

The loop rule is going to

The loop rule is going to stay since this is a competition to show your creativity, originality, etc.. But since there are times when you don't know what to do with a project, people tend to download loops. It's ok to do it as long as you tell or mention that you used a downloaded loop and from where you got it, but, as I mentioned earlier, this is to show your creativity. So, no, the loop rule will stay. It could be moderated but only time will tell. The only loop permitted on the CC are voice samples/loops.

And for the genres, for the next competition (CC 7), the genres available to participate in will change as mentioned in a separate post. By that I mean that there will no longer be an Ambient/Trance genre as both will be separated. Some genres will be taken off the competition (unless some would like to have it back) and there will be new genres added too. I'll reply with a link to the post in a bit where you can mention what other genres you would like to have on the competition.

*And yes, I meant CC7. CC6 it's almost here.*

I'm the host of the Caustic

I'm the host of the Caustic Competition but that doesn't mean that I can't vote. I've participated before if you haven't noticed and also have been voting since I posted the first ever Caustic Competition. I have enough time to listen to the participating tracks and pick my favorites and vote. Also, if you didn't know, the guy you're voting for the election this year, if you're old enough, vote for themselves too. But if you have a problem with that I can just erase my votes from the notebook I use to count them.

I have to agree with Pyzarix

I have to agree with Pyzarix about the loop rule. Being as I are one of the file checkers. I choose not to judge. But, I do listen to all of the final versions submitted and will notify Pyzarix of any discrepancies. Everyone, so far, has been adherent to the rule! It really seems to make each entrant try harder at making original songs. I understand that using loops is a quintessential part of electronic music the world over and that this is a global community. That rule, however, is making better musicians of us all. This month's competition is unequivocal proof!

@subkonchess "And how about adding a best overall track with all genres participating." Do you mean an overall track between every genre or one per genre? Cause if it's between every genre then we can't have it since every genre are either similar or completely different. We can't compare a Dubstep track with Progressive House. But if it's one per genre then that's the top position.
