    • Interesting arrangement, I like it  Not much to criticize, or it would be that I find the snare a bit weak and buried at places (e.g. the middle bit around 1:30 and the part that starts at 2:20). Also the ending could be a bit stronger. I would probably cut it off at 3:01, nice and dramatic. Also, with the vibe you have going on, it might be nice to dirty it up with some bit crushing and glitching; I think it would go well with this style.
    • Today I found an old USB stick filled with OC remixes back from early 2007. Good to see that 10 years later the community is still alive and well. Very random topic but I just wanted to say thank you to all the people who created these fantastic remixes back in the day and are still doing it today! Keep up the good work!
    • Hello fellow remixers,   Here is my take on well-known Kefka's Theme from FF6. At first I thought it would sound a bit spooky for halloween, then I started experimenting and thus went for a more spacey ambient sound. I liked where it went so here I am.   I would love some feedback and reviewing on this track. Hope you guys enjoy it !    
    • @Dextastic I've got nothing against Rock or Metal, heck I love me some Prog or Psychedelic Rock and some Metal stuff. It is just that really most of the time it is the people behind the guitars rather than the guitars themselves that I have an issue with. Not trying to imply anything just a "general observation".  Also, no problem giving some techniques for dealing with things in a mix. I've done a few Hard Rock and a couple of Metal Mixes and there is definitely some different things than you might think. Something else to consider when mixing is that tricks that you may have used in one mix may come in handy for a mix that is completely and utterly unrelated in both genre and style than where you learned it. You'd think that  I'd never turn to distortion in a non-rock/metal mix, but surprisingly it comes in handy in all sorts of places. In particular I like using it on bass too make it easier the ear to find it in the mix if it is quite dull. 
    • Thanks for the reply. I really like the intro cause it feels like i'm playing the game. The game starts with thunder and some dude saying rise from your grave then the music. Maybe I can add some layers to the piano and saturate it a bit. I couldn't find the genesis version voices so I went with the arcade. Thanks for the feedback. I'll post when I made some significant changes.
