The Homebrew channel seems to be missing something in the audio department. Shall we have a contest for background music and sfx such as for clicking on buttons or scrolling thru menu items?
I have to say, I really really like the look of both Raziels and Disenyos contributions... The stirring animation for the menu really encapsulates the kind of brewing that I failed to include in mine! [[User:Trayne|Trayne]] 11:44, 18 March 2008 (PDT)

: I like them all, but RazielDSM's animation is less distracting.  More subtle and in keeping with other Wii Channels. [[User:Rokujou|Rokujou]] 11:56, 18 March 2008 (PDT)

:No. The HBC is silent not because we don't have music to put there, but because we haven't had the opportunity to write the code to play it. [[User:Bushing|Bushing]] 08:14, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
:: I think that they all look great. My favorite(s) would have to be RazielDSM's or souLLy's. I would try to make one, but I can't quite figure out how to make one right now. If the contest runs till after Tuesday of next week, I'd try to make one, but right now I'm caught up in working on programming a compiler for a contest. Anyway, nice work, everybody!

==  Contest: Homebrew channel banners ==
 
Some quotes of marcan from IRC:<br />
 
<marcan> anyway, I'm perfectly fine with the contest (we're going to need artwork after all), but remember this is an animated thing and we're still figuring out the format<br />
 
<marcan> so make sure you keep the .psd files or whatever in separate layers, since the banners are composed of multiple objects.<br />
 
<marcan> but remember, I want animation, and I don't know how it's going to be yet<br />
 
<marcan> just keep in mind two things<br />
 
<marcan> 1) whoever wins will have to work with me on the final version<br />
 
<marcan> 2) we'll also need a savegame banner, tp hack style, from the winner<br />
 
<marcan> oh<br />
 
<marcan> and sound<br />
 
<marcan> but we can make that a separate contest<br />

Dear god.  I've listened to [http://downloads.aussiechris.com/ACWiibrewmusic1.mp3 AussieChris' entry] a few times over now.  I think its' extremely catchy.  [[User:68.61.212.124|68.61.212.124]] 22:41, 31 March 2008 (PDT)

I just want to suggest the first 6 seconds of Forever by Savage Genius be the music, played once. I know it's copyrighted, but I think a 6-second clip falls under fair use. [[User:66.222.160.231|66.222.160.231]] 23:58, 18 March 2008 (PDT)

I just listened to it on youtube, I'm not really seeing the appeal at all. We don't need to use commercial stuff, there's plenty of talented musicians around I'm sure

I think there's too much action in your songs O.o I think a channel should have something inconspicuously! Your sounds are - i think - too hard, it's just stressing, the only one i do like is MazeMaster's! But still, it's not perfect, i'd do it myself but i don't know how to make beats, i'll give garageband a try ;)

Right now the channel is still possible --> IOS37 isn't used yet. For now just as for trucha signed discs there is no problem.

Homebrew Channel Background Music Contest?

The Homebrew channel seems to be missing something in the audio department. Shall we have a contest for background music and sfx such as for clicking on buttons or scrolling thru menu items? --GodCube teh Philosopher, Jack of all Trades 02:06, 12 June 2008 (CEST)

No. The HBC is silent not because we don't have music to put there, but because we haven't had the opportunity to write the code to play it. Bushing 08:14, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Homebrew Channel Music

Dear god. I've listened to AussieChris' entry a few times over now. I think its' extremely catchy. 68.61.212.124 22:41, 31 March 2008 (PDT)

Thanks :D -AussieChris

I just want to suggest the first 6 seconds of Forever by Savage Genius be the music, played once. I know it's copyrighted, but I think a 6-second clip falls under fair use. 66.222.160.231 23:58, 18 March 2008 (PDT)

I haven't heard the song, but I think commercial music would be a bad idea, even if it is 6 seconds. In my opinion it should be something that fits in with the other Wii channels.
