I actually debuted not one, but two sound drivers: the first one is my own KFFSND sound driver, used for Cover 18. The music data is extremely early (and thus is practically hardcoded), but the core components are in pretty good shape. For Cover 20, I created a completely custom sound driver for the purpose of giving myself enough room to fit in all of the samples... and to pull off reversing samples by software through the raw BRR data. Unfortunately, it didn't quite work... but I left it in since I thought it was in character to the original source material.
Welp, I've placed awfully and feel like crap for it. Honestly, September and October this year were awfully hard for me, so it isn't a surprise it impacted my choices in music and instrumentation.
Should have spent more time with my mother instead of doing this stupid entry.
Now to comments,
I'm confused at all the usernames I don't know like Diciono or hana lee, I suppose it's because some of them are not on SMWC?
As I predicted, my author guess all are whack, save for the 1 song I ID'd from Segment (you go my man) and the others from Hooded Edge.
I also want to say that the original songs by hana lee were pleasing to me and they reminded me of Janno27's style. I know Janno27 does not take part in contest so the best second guess I could have was brickblock369 ahah.
Anyway, there were a lot of music I loved in the bunch and I was surprised to see them placed not as high as I placed them myself. But I must admit I am overly generous when I give a note, since most of my votes were between 70-100. Like to get below 70 the song really needs to grind my gears.
KFF, you really did a good job with Jean-Michel Jarre and I'm happy to see this French composer coming up in a contest. Somehow I believed this was exodustx0's work hehe.
Congrats guys and see you next time.
