Gonna give it to you straight guys. Aside from the 4 5s and the 6 4s, seemed like most people just phoned this one in. Two tracks were simply titled Synth1 and Synth1 Sketch or something like that (one being like 30 seconds long) Seriously? That's all you can put into this?
Way to come pissing on a light-hearted competition :D I’m fairly sure most people (including me) are doing this in addition to their day job and other projects and participating specifically because it’s so light-hearted and you get constructive feedback. This is all the feedback you can put into this?

It is up tu you how you call and name your track. Nothing wrong with that. As I mention before take it as opinion and other person view.

Yea I understand this but I still feel bad becuase there is no bad track here. I have oposite thought compared to Wagtunes. I think every one here deserve to be winner for trying hard. There is truth in Ilmai words "I’m fairly sure most people (including me) are doing this in addition to their day job and other projects".

Voted.
Thanks to everyone who put time and effort into their tracks -- it's always fun to listen and comment. OSC is an interesting beast that seems to evolve (and sometimes devolve) over the years. It's nice to have Wags back to comment, and he's as upfront as ever (for those who are new, he was a long time participant).

Good luck to all!

Damn when did I get this busy that I have hard time listening to songs and voting them. My votes are 100% subjective and I think different criteria was used for every song.

+1. I vote for creativity and effort regardless of how they manifest. Be it in the sound design itself or in the production or songwriting.

"There is always some subjective level of voting...".
The whole evaluation is, of course, based on the "subjective levels". Its called taste.

Yes, there is no accounting for taste, one persons Casu marzu or surströmming or Stinky Tofu is another persons :D

Oh yeah, voted :)

Whether you leave it up to taste is entirely up to the voter. I've 5-starred some super camp muzak songs for creatively showing true comprehension of the synth.

Yes, one manifestation of the taste, too.

Or you can morf Casu marzu, surströmming and Stinky Tofu, and get something really fantastic out of it...
