Neo (latin for new)
+
OST (latin for original soundtrack)



Pure Moods is on hiatus. In its place, I'm curating a similar project.

NeOST is a weekly song prompt that challenges you to make soundtracks for media that doesn't exist. Each prompt of NeOST will present a familiar scenario or design problem from famous media. Participants will create soundtracks for these scenarios using samples that I have provided.


NeOST_1: "World Select"


With the samples provided, write music for a "World Select" menu screen in a fictional video game. "World Select" is an ambiguous term. The specifics of this menu, and the fake video game it belongs to, are for you to explore.

The deadline for NeOST_1 is end-of-day Monday, January 18. All submissions made on time will be grouped into a soundcloud playlist. The link below has a .zip containing the samples, along with an Ableton 10 file.

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
― Cloud Strife


samples in a .zip: https://we.tl/t-h8RZD9Fha3
samples in an Ableton 10 file: https://we.tl/t-1vDd1cKoA9

edit: I updated the uploads because the original Ableton file I uploaded was exported wrong. The samples are the same, I just fixed the Ableton file.

you have some options!

Pro Tools has a free version, and also a free trial of their full version:
https://www.avid.com/pro-tools

Reaper is totally free (I think), and its interface might be more confusing at first, but it's a fantastic program:
https://www.reaper.fm/

Waveform also has a free version. I don't know much about this program but I've heard it's good, and it looks easier to use than reaper:
https://www.tracktion.com/products/waveform-pro

Any of those would do nicely. For some reason I want to recommend Waveform first even though I haven't used it at all. I think it's because it reminds me of Ableton the most out of the three, haha

having spent several days already making something for this, i choose now to clarify - for this series, do you want the song composed entirely of the samples or compositions that use these samples as well as whatever else?

EDIT: after careful consideration i have decided that whichever the answer "i've done what i've done"

it is a literal walking simulator and i wish it existed

1. this is fantastic work, you crushed the prompt lmao
2. I thought I had written a blurb about using outside sounds, but I can't find it in the original post. But yes you did great, I want people to use outside sounds, "as long as some amount of the original samples can be recognized" or something.
