The song provider is only bound to give feedback to the top 10 entries. This has always been the case, but has been slightly adjusted in the rule set for MC064 and forward.bluesation wrote: ↑Mon Mar 30, 2020 12:34 CESTYes, this we expect from a song provider, feedback. We spent several hours with your song, helping you to get a better sound it has. Former song providers had no problem with that.
That you can get feedback here on the Mix Challenge has always been a special case compared to other communities. That there was feedback for all entries previously was solely due to how the song provider worked and handled a specific situation. And while I do encourage the conversation, "clients" are not obligated to give feedback other than Mix Round 2.
Not wrong, but also not that simple either. Even before the update of the Rules and Guidelines, it was made clear that you have to go by your gut-instinct, and that you have to weight in if a "timing edit" and "drastic pitch correction" is really necessary. You should always keep the artistic vision in mind.
Check in again with the rules for the participants and the FAQ. For the latter, most notably FAQ Q/A #10 and #11.
Rules for participants wrote: ↑Fri Mar 31, 2017 20:41 CESTRule set for mix participants
- it is allowed to edit and to a certain extend even mangle the source material to improve the production (e.g. pitch correction within given boundaries, timing/phase correction within given boundaries, re-amping of bass/guitars if DI track were present, vocal comping, noise gating/strip silence, etc), as long as this does not result in drastic sound design and a complete new sound (e.g. morphing one sound into another one - example: flute into trumpet) - unless otherwise stated
