Description

The Doctrine HMage 5/19/2012 12:42:04pm No.10 - Score: 5
Imagine being part of a well oiled military machine.

Luna took over -- industry and prosperity and renaissance in technology and medicine for everyone.

Everyone with money — you can get magic by installing manufacured horn, you can fly if you get wings, you can enhance anything, but every time you do that, you feel like you're giving away some part of you forever.

And you're part-machine as well by now to perform better as a soldier.

Hopes and dreams clash with reality, as raw technology and rough lifeless industry crushes them.

But you still cling to those hopes and dreams, because, sometimes, it feels like you don't have anything else left.

Cybermare Uprising (or, the Toastbeard That Wasn't) Cherax Destructor 5/19/2012 2:41:54am No.8 - Score: 4
Mango Smoothie, the collaboration that rocked your mother's socks off with their This Day Aria remix, was supposed to reconvene this week to write a song about an elite military taskforce of robotic ponies. Alas, it was not to be! So instead, here's a taste of what it could have been - an old beat from Cherax's cellar with the cobwebs brushed off. What lies in store for it is to be seen.

(I can't make the sync-listen tomorrow, so y'all have a good time now.)

Ponyville 1984 Seventh Element 5/19/2012 2:28:30am No.7 - Score: 3
Toastbeard entry! Pony Robots...in the 80's! Basically it's kind of like, Terminator + ponies or something. 1984 is kind of a reference to that one apple commercial, it also sounded cool shutup. Drum samples are from an Alesis HR-16. A bunch of samples are from G1 ponies.

Friendship Analyzer Doofcake 5/18/2012 2:45:23pm No.5 - Score: 2
Made this from the little free time I had this week.
Twilight Sparkle is a robot.
Also kick, clap, wubs etc...




Chromeo and Junebug Blind 5/19/2012 3:12:32pm No.13 - Score: 2
What happens when a pony and a robot fall in love? This song is about Junebug's relationship with a robot stallion named Chromeo, and society's best efforts to keep them apart.

Or something. Frankly, I only made this for the pun.




Robot Something (FUKKK ASS ROBOTS NEED SPEED REMIX) DJ FISTBUCK 5/19/2012 8:18:31pm No.23 - Score: 2
Flinckie no offense but your track was way better at 180 bpm.

Also, did I accidentally new genre? Fuck do I know really.




random pony sketch sci 5/19/2012 8:50:45pm No.24 - Score: 2
I spent all my spare time this week working on a different song (which you should check out. click my name above this entry), so my initial idea for this compo didn't happen.

so instead, I'd like to share a cool technique I learned recently: sampling!
it's where you take small bits of other songs or sounds and then use those to build your song.
it's really fun!




The Old Steampony Mech (Teaser) Fimbulin 5/19/2012 11:47:23am No.9 - Score: 1
I had plans for this for a long time, just got around to making it finally. I'm submitting the full version to Balloon Party after I make some art for it.

Idk, my mentality associates chiptunes with robots??!?!?!?!?!?!?!

But like, yeah, just a simple quick 2A03 chip, efficiency practice

I considered using FDS too but I couldn't be bothered... Maybe if I extend it... Maybe.

A collab with Nomobu.




Rainbow Robot Factory ancara22 5/18/2012 8:50:22pm No.6 - Score: 0
I did once wonder: What if the Rainbow Factory was taken over by robots?

I imagine it'd sound kinda like this......ish.
