  1. Past hour
  2. One of my favorite tracks from the Xenosaga series: More than a little insane, but I'd like to hear someone remix this. Good luck!
  3. Today
  4. Instantly one of my favorites from the entire site. It just sounds so. fucking. EVIL! I love it
  5. Well, bonus tracks are accepted at the discretion of the director(s) of an album, and even then, only approved for an OCR album by OCR staff. I can't speak to the DKC3 album or the decision made to accept these bonus tracks; only that they must have been approved by the director(s) and OCR to have been featured on the album..
  6. Hello there! First of all I want to say hi to everyone in this community, I'm new here, althought I know OCremix for a long time! This is my first post here, so I hope I'm not doing anything wrong, If I'm please tell me and I'll fix it asap! I want to share with you the soundtrack I made for BOOR, the game by Dazlog, which is on Steam since 14th February: The soundtrack consist of 27 electronic songs with an atmospheric touch. It's one of the largest and more complex works I've ever done, and I'm quite proud with the result! Anyway, I hope you like it, and of course any comments or reviews are welcome! Thanks!
  7. 1. work-in-progress

    Cheers Gario. I automate MIDI expression for the sustain string swells so just need to rethink how I'm doing that. For the other instruments, I can pick articulations with faster attack. The electric piano (that you're mistaking for a guitar) is supposed to be a lead intrument since it's playing the main melodies any time it's around so not sure what makes it seem like a supporting instrument. I'll try and figure out what you mean though.
  8. Definitely one of my personal favorites from the album, so cool. Such posh, much refine. Very awesome. \m/
  9. Gonna keep it short here. Listening to the remix, the foundational elements is based upon direct sampling of the original without (IMO) meaningful enough arrangement variation away from the original usage. Sure, it's sliced up a bit and things are moved/grooved differently, but overall it feels like an evolution/progression from the original, rather than an OC ReMix arrangement. Maybe I'm remembering wrong, but I feel like we used to be more restrictive on direct sampling and this would've been no override. I remember personally having to cut original sampling used in just the intros of one of my tracks years ago to make sure it was super limited. Could be that mine was verbatim (though effected) vs. this, which is a bit more arranged, I don't know. I'll also agree with the repetition comments as well. It's part of the old electro-genre, and I understand that, but I there's still room for additional variation within the track here. As stands, this makes me think of the old late 90's live DJ mixes that were intentionally extended/repeated for a long period of time beyond what the original tracks featured for the live dance audience (and not necessarily for listeners at home). Not necessarily a deal-breaker alone, but a point for improvement. It's a cool track for sure, but to me it's not to the point of fitting OCR's criteria for arrangement. NO
  10. Awwwwww okay... Yeah, I'll work on the Andross thing this week. You go ahead and get the intro up. EDIT: Buuuuuttttttt- different versions of the same tracks were submitted and excepted for the DKC3 album Bonus Disc, so...or were those exceptions?
  11. On this one, I'm gonna have to say no. First of all, because you already have a claim on this track in the regular album and you've already made a bonus track of Corneria; second of all because your sound design here is way too close to the WIP you have sent me for your regular claim. If you are looking to start on something else for the album, there are still 4 unclaimed tracks on the current tracklist (including the Boss Roll ) and boss and character themes are still open. Plus, I'm still hoping to get that Andross collaboration going and I need that intro to start things off, if you're still interested in doing that. All that being said, I liked what I heard - your fill-work is really coming along. I love to hear that creativity!
  12. I am back with another track for review. I know it is unfinished, I just want some feedback as to what I should do next. Thanks in advance.
  13. Hey thanks both of you for the feedback so far! They did perform it live, but I didn't get a good recording of it and there were still more mistakes than I would've been happy with putting as a proper remix. Duly noted. In theory though, some amount of looping more or less has to happen. For example, in my piece the vibraphone plays much of the same thing, with a couple variations, the whole time. If I get your implication right, though, you're referring more to the blatant copy and paste mechanic than looping something while changing something else. Right?
  14. It's okay DarkeSword, I understand what it's like to have issues and emergencies with your family (my family's quite dysfunctional and my Grandma is sick practically every day). Hope things clear up soon. I'll be waiting for Round 3.
  15. I MADE ANOTHER VERSION OF RRRREEEECCCCCOOOOOOORRRDDDDDDDSSSSSSSS!!!! Can this be on the Bonus Disc? I'm gonna need some help with this one! Feel free to help!
  16. 1. work-in-progress

    My input: never, ever loop, copy/paste, repeat something for the sake of making it longer. Always try to come up with something new. Looping just makes things bland.
  17. hope you don't forget me for dragon god cause i'll have a WIP that doesn't sound badly sampled/short sometime this week
  18. Great to hear, I've marked it down for you. Happy remixing!
  19. Wow I epically failed. Both issues fixed. But not the disgustingness, that stays muahaha edit2 - apparently there were 3 issues. The ADD is strong with this one... edit and wow at the FB thing...that is one creepy coincidence.
  20. That was disgusting This is MnP 69. I believe I sent you the link to the week's theme? Apparently in FB's on this day a friend said I had 69 friends 4 years ago...
  21. @Aster You mentioned you're good with guitars? Looks like @TSori might be in need of your assistance with his track! Let me know if you guys can pair up and work it out!
  22. I like the arrangement of the work. The instrumentation sounds good. Is this all recorded live? The recording levels and/or mixing could definitely use some tweaking to make some of the parts sound a bit more clear, but I do like the take on this source. As for length, I wonder if it could be looped/repeated with perhaps a bridge at some point to connect three passages (?). Keep up the good work.
  23. So I think this COULD be rejected on arrangement alone... a little too repetitive, and the beat is relentless in a way that I didn't particularly enjoy. From a production perspective.... well, with pure chiptune, and in mono at that, what we expect is that the arrangement side of things compensates for all the production decisions that are being taken off the table - like panning, or DSP, or instrumentation beyond what the chip offers. We haven't been 100% clear about this in the past, but it's NOT that we have a blanket ban on chiptunes, just that getting one past the panel is harder - same deal with solo piano arrangements - because the set of production decisions has been significantly curtailed. NO
  24. sexy 69 - theme of love, picked by Necrox. It's not kinky per se, but it is romantic. The more deprived of us will just have to think of some shitty fan-fiction sex twixt Rosa and her love...or loves oh maiSIXTY NINE!!! ....sorry about the black background...copied this from the ThaSauce page. Oh wells.
  25. Compo: MnP (Meat 'n Potatoes) Round 69: FF4 - Theme of Love Midi: Youtube: Deadline: March 6th Monday @ 1 PM Vote Ends: March 8th Wed @ 11 PM MnP ARCHIVE - made by Trism Submit your remix Here when completed. **If you have technical difficulty with account activation at ThaSauce, please contact me via PM and I will submit your track and will also tally your vote** MISSION STATEMENT The goal of Compo:MnP is to promote that "meat and potatoes" conservative approach to remixing: this includes the mood and composition of source tunes. It is up to the remixer to create their own personalization, or to simply give it a sound upgrade. Moreover, the compo is a great opportunity to hone your remixing skills and give video game music the respect that is due. SOME reinterpretation is recommended, but not required. MnP Instructions/Guidelines 1. Covers and Sound Upgrades are permitted. 2. Most or all of the source notes must be present (but not necessarily in the exact same order), secondly the mood (energy, pacing, feelings being conveyed etc) should also be retained. For example, a source tune that is fast-paced and energetic that's remixed into a mellow/chill-out theme would be a hard sell. 3. If you decide to do a genre swap (i.e. symphonic to techno), make sure that the conditions of #2 are met. 4. Submissions must be at a maximum of 20mb (keeping in step with ThaSauce's file size max). 5. Only 1 entry per participant. Previous winner cannot participate but can submit a BONUS entry. 6. All competitors and voters must adhere to the rules stated within: Competition Code and Conduct MISC/TIPS - When picking a source tune, make sure it has a MIDI to make ppl's lives easier. - In-game sound FX are permitted, so long as they don't comprise the whole track (i.e. replacing entire MIDI tracks with just sfx)
  26. I've been considering claiming Fear of the Heavens for the last week since it became available... I think I'll take the plunge and officially commit. I'm starting to have ideas about how to approach it, so I'll regret it if I don't!
