Man, that's some tight pumpin' electronica right here! Never played the game or heard the OST, but jeez, your remixes are damn great Quite remeniscent of Jewbei's and bLiNd's works. Very cool album, defenitely goes in my VGM collection. Hope you'll keep making such sweet stuff and maybe even submit something to OCR
I've noticed some Sonic 3 & Knuckles ReMixes that use bits exclusive to their Act 2 variants are only listed under Act 1.
Dub Island (Bashment Riddim Edit) is based on Angel Island Act 2, not Act 1.
Bottled Metro and Aquatic Pressure are based on Hydrocity Act 2 rather than 1.
Walk on Water and Down to the Hydrocity's Nightclub use both Acts of Hydrocity but are only listed as Act 1.
Angel is a mostly a ReMix of Lava Reef Act 2 (AKA Hidden Palace) but the saxophone also quotes Lava Reef Act 1 at 2:28.
And on a non-Sonic related note, Lava Dead Beat has an unlisted reference to "In a Snow-Bound Land (Clapper's Cavern)" at 3:13 - 3:41.
SOMETHINGS TO NOTE
- It cuts off like that for looping purposes.
-All of these instruments are VST's from impactsoundworks.
Things I'm looking for
- Balance of over all instruments
- Does it match its setting (a power plant).
- Can it loop properly and seamlessly.
- Most importantly is it good to listen to over and over again
This is my second favorite track so far I've composed and I think I'm starting to get the hang of balancing. So for the setting or level for this song is a power plant. An area where it has vibrant colors and a mechanical feel to it. So what I've done to mimic this is adding a slight melody under the main using a square wave. I've also gave the lead guitar a more clean sound this time.
Feedback on this is appreciated and I'll reply to any questions.
Late to the party, but I've only really noticed stuttering over Bluetooth with PC speakers if the speakers get too far away from the master device. If said device is your PC under the desk and the speakers are on said desk, then you should be fine as long as your desk isn't made of lead
On a side note, Brad should I worry about power usage if I want to add additional items to my PC (e.g. swap or add GPU, a third storage drive, etc)? The computer you built for me is a MSI Gaming 5 (i7 processor w/Cooler Master hyper 212 EVO), GeForce GT 730, ASUS optical drive, WD 2TB HDD, Samsung EVO 250gb SSD powered by a CX600. I'm woefully unaware of how much energy this setup is using and what the general rule of thumb is for computer power units. :-/
