    • It's a bit crazy, isn't it? Last time I met up with a djpretzel we both had that moment of "let's see, we've known each other... how many years now? OVER 15?!" A few of us insane ones from back then are still puttering and releasing new tracks too, and I'm one of 'em, so I guess on behalf of the OCR veterans... you're welcome.

      The really awesome part is how many guys from this community have gone on to become actual game composers and are now making a living doing it. I'm not personally among those ranks - I found I'm a much better remixer than a composer - but just look at Big Giant Circles, Zircon... in fact right now I'm checking out the preview to Wilbert Roget's Call of Duty WW2 soundtrack!  It's a cool feeling, being proud of your friends and their accomplishments. It's certainly an awesome community for that.
    • Thanks for the feedback, dude. ))

      Realy nice to get the opinion of a real drummer in this case.
    • Thanks for the nice hints and informations. ))

      In the end I've chosen the Sony MDR-7506 and I'm really satisfied with those headphones.
      They've got a really natural sound - no overpowered, but really crisp and highly defined basses (probably one of the biggest issue with most studio headphones), pretty decent, clean and neutral mids and really defined high frequencies (although they might be a bit standing out and sharp at "sss" sounds like hi-hats - I tried to change this with an equalizer plugin but no matter where I reduced or raised frequencies I couldn't get significantly better results which might be a sign that these headphones make a really clean, authentic, neutral and natural sound).

      In the beginning it might be a bit unusual to listen to soundtracks with such a reduced, neutral bass - but it's really good for the mixing process (as well as for watching movies etc.).
      Your sense of hearing wil get used to the neutral sound within a few days/weeks.

      The stereophonic/ surround sound is also pretty awesome (and really precise), too.
      Related to this it can really keep up with the big room sound of my new stereo speaker system (Logitech Z533).

      A bit annoying during the first days was the slightly noticeable pressure on the head around the ears (my ears got pretty warm at the first day after wearing the headphones over a longer time).
      But this vanished after a couple of days and they now fit really well without boiling my ears.
      If you have larger ears you should look for another model of headphones maybe (they're really made for smaller and normal ears) - such like Beyerdynamic DT 770/880/990 Pro headphones which are really big compared to my Sony headphones.

      So, altogether you can hardly do anything wrong with buying the Sony MDR-7506 as professional studio headphones.

      PS: Since a friend of mine wants to buy some Beyerdynamic headphones (770 DT Pro or 880 DT Pro) for gaming soon I might have a chance to compare those ones with my Sony MDR-7506.
    • I like it. I can see Kefka dancing to this funky and creative interpretation of his theme. I don't see any problems with it at all. Definitely should submit this when it's done ...
