Style/Titles/OC ReMix series
Style for OC ReMix tracks
This page describes the style to be used for OverClocked ReMix (OC Re
Mix) tracks. Enter these tracks as follows:
Name 'Title' OC Re
This includes the two single quotes.
All OC Re
Mix tracks should be listed as NonAlbumTrack
- Status: This is an OfficialStyleGuideline.
Since OC Re
Mixes are not remixes but new compositions, RemixStyle does not apply and hence this style is used.
- Final Fantasy 6 'Little Painter Girl' OC Re
Mix Chrono Trigger 'Revival Day Impoetus' OC Re
This contents of this page is derived from discussions on the mailing lists: http://lists.musicbrainz.org/pipermail/musicbrainz-style/2005-September/000405.html, http://lists.musicbrainz.org/pipermail/musicbrainz-style/2005-October/000502.html
This style guideline doesn't reflect the official specification at OC Re
Mix. I asked about this discrepency in the #ocremix channel, and all I got was hostility:
- <cparker> Hi, I noticed something about the ID3 info in the mp3's downloaded from OCRe
Mix... The formats of the titles there don't match the format agreed upon at MusicBrainz: http://wiki.musicbrainz.org/OCReMixStyle <cparker> Which title format should be used??? <Ferret> cparker: you're overanalyzing it. all of the remixes contain tagging which was done to site standards, not musicbrainz. <[Smoke]> And just for reference <[Smoke]> http://www.ocremix.org/info/Detailed_ID3v2_Tag_Specification <[Smoke]> This is the official standard tagging specification <cparker> Hmmm... Perhaps the MusicBrainz OCReMixStyle should be changed, then... <[Smoke]> Yes, it's inaccurate as fuck <Ferret> And pretentiously so. <cparker> So then djpretzel's own opinion doesn't matter? http://lists.musicbrainz.org/pipermail/musicbrainz-style/2005-September/000405.html <cparker> ...just making sure before I go and propose an update to the MB Style Council.
I didn't get any sort of an answer after that. This style guideline should probably be fixed to match this line in the official standard tagging specification (the lines that pertain to OCRe
Mix are highlighted in red on that page):
4.2.1 TT2 Title/Songname/Content description ALWAYS = Exact name of Game [space] Exact name of Re
Mix [space] OC Re
Mix E.G. Actraiser Fillmore Funk OC Re
Either that, or djpretzel should update his specification to match the style guideline described on this very page, based on the mailing list discussions, which stem directly from his input on the matter.
Also, is it possible to have a thousand-track album? If so, then all OC Re
Mix tracks should be moved over to one album, which is how djpretzel said he wanted it to be presented.
