    Hi everyone...this is Aubrey Hodges and I am the original composer for several Quest for Glory titles as well as many others over the last 3 decades. I have recently released the soundtrack for Quest for Glory: Shadows of Darkness http://aubreyhodges.bandcamp.com/album/quest-for-glory-shadows-of-darkness-official-soundtrack and thought it may be of interest to this site. I would be willing to provide a few of the newly recorded and arranged versions if that is something you would appreciate. I am not really sure if the original composers are supposed to be involved in the site or the remixes as I am new to ocremix. (I found out from a fan who sent me a link to the forum). Almost all of the new versions of the songs included are played with live instruments and are now what I had envisioned when I composed them originally. I do plan to release 3 more of my Sierra titles as well: Freddy Pharkas Frontier Pharmacist, Shadows of Yserbius (working on currently), and Robin Hood: Conquests of the Longbow. I have also release a 20th Anniversary Edition of my Doom Playstation Soundtrack that includes a ton of new material, longer tracks with new arrangements and 8 brand new bonus tracks. http://aubreyhodges.bandcamp.com/album/doom-playstation-official-soundtrack-20th-anniversary-extended-edition I sent a message to one of the staff but have not heard back yet. With the deadline approaching so quickly I thought I should post here to try and get an idea of whether or not I should provide a few tracks for this and if so, how exactly to provide them. Thanks for your help and thanks so much for your appreciate and support of game composers! -Aubrey Hodges aubreyhodges.com (info, blog etc.) http://www.aubreyhodges.bandcamp.com (album streaming, sales)

    @dfcentre Perhaps I can help you: We don't really require passwords - user accounts allow participation on the forums, control of artist profile options, and will eventually be required for submissions, but simply browsing the site and downloading mixes can be done without an account. We DO have an SSL certificate, and we HAVE enabled the option in our forum software so that when you log on, it's via SSL.

    Time for a roundup! We passed our second-to-last deadline with great results, and as you may have seen in the opening post, we've seen a lot of updates, new WIPs and finished tracks! A quick overview: Tabby made great progress with the artwork, with a far advanced version of the front cover artwork that is nearing completion. \o/ New challengers! We've got a claim from Charles Ritz for "Did You See the Ocean" and a (temp) claim from @Rozovian for "In the Dead of Night". Initial WIPs from @Heavy Viper ("Spirit of the Night"), @Blake Inc. ("The Dark Star"), @Kylok ("Fear of the Heavens") and @Rozovian, and even though they are initial WIPs, some of them are actually pretty close to being finished already. Great stuff! Good progress was made by @Sagnewshreds ("Danger"), @Sbeast ("Prophecy"), @JonnyAtma ("Leave Time for Love"), @Jorito ("Fond Memories") and @PabloComa ("Calm Before the Storm"), they just need a bit more work to be finished. The tracks from @DS394 ("Steel and Snare"), @RebeccaETripp ("Still of the Night"), @Hylian Lemon ("A Curious Tale"), @Kylok ("A Wish") are (as good as) finished and they sound amazing. I bet you'll love them So all in all a LOT of great progress! Unfortunately not everybody was able to check in for this deadline, but most people were good in communicating about it, which is much appreciated. There is one more deadline left, and this is the big one, the really really really final deadline, followed by the release of the album. Final deadline is September 3rd, 2017. Even though we only have 1 more deadline left, we'd like to encourage you not to wait until the very last moment. If you have something ready sooner, and/or if you'd like to get some feedback on your work, please don't hesitate to share with us. We're here to help. And don't worry about forgetting the deadline, we will be in touch with you about it Best of luck with this final lap, go kick ass and give Secret of Mana the tribute it deserves!

    So about a month for the final deadline, and we're making good progress so far! The artwork for the front cover is now finished, and if you look at the opening post, you can already see a sneak preview Other than that, @evktalo claimed "Together Always" and I myself claimed "Whisper and Mantra" and "Flight into the Unknown". We also saw some check-ins from people already, with @HeavyViper, @Blake Inc., @Thirdkoopa, @Starphoenix, @Rexy and @djpretzel showing some very promising updates of their tracks. Really looking forward to the final versions; what we've heard so far is great stuff and I can't wait to get the album out Good luck with the last stretch, and keep up the good work guys!

    I was already doing some small things for this album in the background, but I've talked with Nika a bit (disclosure: he's my co-director for the Secret of Mana album that's currently in progress) and I am also on board to help out a bit more pro-actively. My work on the Secret of Mana album goes first, but if anyone needs a hand with their arrangement or production work, let me know. I can help both as advisor/sounding board or actively working out the kinks in your track, if needed. Don't be shy, just reach out.

    If needed I'd like to throw my hat in for helping out on the album in any way, whether that be recording some instruments or taking a track. I understand this album is in a reworking phase currently and I definitely have a love for star fox and would like to see this come to life.

    OK, guys should obviously be aware we had two more albums since my last reply. One of them is on me sorta: while reviewing our trailer for Sonic 25, I realized we were fast approaching the end of the anniversary, so we had to move with haste on that one. The next one came virtually out of nowhere, at least on my end; I was first aware of it maybe 3 weeks ago, and a trailer was essential there as well (sigh, more instant deadline). This weekend, I'm contacting everyone on VROOM for Content Policy and to see about any possible final development. There's another album incoming, but I'm gonna try to sked this one next. We'll see how it goes.

    I would like to contribute as a performer (all brass instruments, non brass instruments depending on the circumstance). And also I heard there were voice acting roles? I most likely won't be able to take a track to arrange this time around, but would love to contribute as much as possible!

    I'd also invite people to take a good look at this page if we want to produce something worth being approved by OCR -- especially the 'Arrangement' and 'Production' parts.

    Hello, everyone! I guess I should get this out of the way first. I received the news this morning - our initial submission for OCR approval has been rejected by the staff. I received a list of all the feedback from the projects team which reviewed the submission, and suffice to say, there are concerns that the overall quality of what we have does not reach the overall quality or potential that OCR is looking for. So ... what does this mean for us? It means that this is not over! A wise salesman once told me that a failing grade is never the end of the world, it only shows you where you need to improve to do better the next time. There ARE tracks on here that caught attention, we DO have some folks on here that are getting noticed, and there IS some excitement that this is happening! I'd like everyone to take a long, hard listen at their work and find everything you love about it and everything you can think of to make it even better. OCR has made it clear to me that they want to hear our absolute best before they give us their nod, so I expect nothing less of everyone here. It was @Thomas Neil's vision to see this as an OCR album, so now that we are more aware of what those requirements are, we need to work even harder at this. Let's kick it up a notch! Moving forward, I'm going to be asking for more help from the Audio Support team for track review and I'll be looking for a well-established remixer or to give me a hand with track QA. I know I've been slow with reviews - sorry about that, I'm getting there - but I'm hoping to have them all done by the end of the month. All this feedback from OCR is good incentive! I'll be going over the panel feedback for your tracks with each of you; a lot of you have submitted updates since the initial submission, but I'll touch base regardless. If anyone has questions about this whole thing, please PM me. ----- Updates: I will be updating the tracklist to reflect the new narrative schedule soon, and posting an article about the narrative component - I'll hopefully do something on this in the next few days. @Katamari sent me an update of his remix for SF SNES's Title Theme! ...and after a long absence, @CrimsonCobalt submitted a new WIP for Can't Let You Do That! which is sounding awesome. Give it a listen - He'll be looking for performers soon! @The Imposter never got back to me, so yes, I have released the claim on The Awesome Black Hole. @CrimsonCobalt has decided to release his claim on Katina, but will be keeping his original arrangement if anyone is interested in taking over from where he started. Please keep the updates coming. Keep up the great work, everyone!

    It really just depends on you as a person, IMO. I don't think I'll ever switch from FL Studio because it just clicks with me, and I find the stock plugins (compression, EQ, etc.) to be fantastic on there own (Though stock plugins on any DAW are going to be good) You're just going to have to do a little searching to find good samples and sounds unless you just want to make electronic music. It's great for that. But this may be different for you, you may prefer Reason, Studio One, or even Pro Tools if you're doing a lot of recording. My suggestion is to pick 3 separate DAW's that interest you, and then download the trial versions of all of them. Find what clicks with you the most (What you enjoy using the most), and then stick with that DAW. Learn the ins-and-outs, the shortcuts, the tricks, etc. and learn a whole lot about the mixing process and what everything is doing to your mix. (especially EQ and Compression). I can guarantee you that if you find a DAW that you really like, you won't ever have to switch around. BAD IDEA, unless you're using something like Garage Band, you'll probably want to upgrade that eventually. You can still get great mixes out of it though

    I've been quiet, I know - more life stuff came up last week, but I'm getting back on track now. I've finally made some changes to the tracklist at the top of the thread and to our lineup. I'm not done yet - there are still some decisions to be made and some conversations to be finished - but the new placement for the audio tracks is now listed. I know I've been slow about sending the feedback out, but I'm catching up. I should have it all out soon. ---- Guys, I am still waiting for updates from many of you who didn't get something in to me for the last deadline. I'm not going to point you out - yet - but you know who you are, and I'm going to come looking for you soon! In the meantime, please note @Jorito's generous offer above - I can totally vouch for his ear, musical ability, and his skill at making folks smile. We also have our Audio Support team, ready to advise with whatever help you might need. Keep at it, everyone. Just because it's quiet here doesn't mean things aren't happening. Looking forward to hearing what everyone is up to!

    Glad you liked it and thanks for supporting the Cinematica albums; in fact I posted this piece on Kickstarter publicly several months ago so it was indeed heard there first, however I gave permission for this track to be used for this album so they could fill in the slot for the main theme since I was just too busy to make something exclusive for it and had already completed this overworld medley piece. So things worked out in the end, and for those who do like the music and aren't familiar with my own Zelda Cinematica album, perhaps they'll be interested in that as well when it is released in the next month or two.

The music of the Legend of Zelda games has always been an integral part of the game experience, even being able to play musical instruments in the games themselves. We felt that A Link to the Past deserved more attention than it already got in the game music community, since many of composer Koji Kondo's greatest and most iconic themes originated from this game. In celebration of the game's 25th anniversary, we set out to honour the legacy of its soundtrack by creating an arrangement album while also staying true to the awesome diversity that defines the remixing community.

    OC ReMix Presents Mirror Image: A Link to the Past ReMixed! August 7, 2017 Contact: press@ocremix.org FAIRFAX, VA... Celebrating the 25th anniversary year of A Link to the Past's release in the U.S., OverClocked ReMix today released its 63rd free community arrangement album, Mirror Image: A Link to the Past ReMixed. Featuring 18 tracks from 18 artists, Mirror Image pays tribute to Nintendo's 16-bit masterpiece The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and is co-directed by OC ReMix veterans William "WillRock" Harby & Emery "DaMonz" Monzerol. The album is available for free download at http://mirrorimage.ocremix.org. Mirror Image pulls together a talented roster of musicians honoring this legendary SNES score in a variety of styles, including EDM, orchestral, jazz, prog rock, and more. Mirror Image was made by fans, for fans, and is not affiliated with or endorsed by Nintendo; all games, characters, images, and original compositions are copyright their respective owners. "The music of the Legend of Zelda games has always been an integral part of the game experience, even being able to play musical instruments in the games themselves." explained directors Harby and Monzerol. Acknowledging both the game and the soundtrack's enduring popularity, the directors felt an extra level of appreciation was warranted. "We felt that A Link to the Past deserved more attention than it already got in the game music community, since many of composer Koji Kondo's greatest and most iconic themes originated from this game," Harby and Monzerol elaborated. The album's contrasting artwork -- illustrating the Light World and Dark World concepts introduced by A Link to the Past -- was designed by Canadian artist Annie Doyon. Mirror Image marks OC ReMix's third Legend of Zelda series album, following 2010's Threshold of a Dream honoring Link's Awakening, and 2011's 25YEARLEGEND commemorating the franchise's 25th anniversary. The album is also Emery Monzerol's second directorial effort, following Super Mario RPG: Window to the Stars earlier this year. "We set out to honour the legacy of the soundtrack while also staying true to the awesome diversity that defines the remixing community," affirmed co-directors Harby and Monzerol.

    I only recently noticed that in the second Sigma stage of Megaman X, each subsequent window shows the sky as a slightly different color, going from really early morning to dawn. Then when you go outside to fight Storm Eagle near the end of the stage, it's daytime. I thought that was really cool. Also the X-ray visor in Metroid Prime showing that Samus switches beams by changing the orientation of her fingers. It's extra cool because it makes those hand shaped symbols that represented them up until that point suddenly make sense.

    Well this is funny, I'm a regular at OCR but I'm only just finding this post... and interestingly enough, I have an obligation to deliver a Quest for Glory remix or two due to the "commission a remix" pledge level I offered during my Kickstarter campaign that also happened around this time last year. I have some choices of tracks to arrange, including: Erana's Peace (QFG1) Erana's Pool (QFG3) Erana's Garden (QFG4) @aubreyhodges, if you're reading this, is there a chance I could get MIDIs for just those tracks? That would save me some time trying to decipher these fairly long originals, heh. Shoot them over to production@mazedude.com if that's a possibility, and before long there will be even more American homages under my belt. (The Kickstarter was for my recent album release "American Pixels" in which American composers were honored by way of remix; more info here: http://www.mazedude.com/projects/american-pixels. In turn, the commission requests were all for tracks also developed by American composers, such as yourself.)

    As of today, I've completed this task. There may be some ReMixes with multiple source tunes or some theme cameos where those tracks haven't been noted in our database yet, so if anyone finds something like that, please let me know!

    So... I guess it's official. Archie Sonic is dead. I read it a lot in primary school, and I loved it. At the time, I was a bit biased towards Sonally... which is unfortunate, as I started reading after the reboot, but looking back, the stories told were great, and always managed to pull off "dark and edgy Sonic" in a way Sega's own writers never could. I hope the new publisher is great, but Archie Sonic will always have a place in my heart. What are your stories?

    That would be too bad, but we actually did what you're talking about. I did the torrent updates in 2012 and 2014, and we upgraded the encodings/bitrates of more than 500 ReMixes. Some of the stuff you linked to were artists creating new or expanded versions of their tracks, which we wouldn't replace the posted ReMixes with, but perhaps djp would be open to hosting alternate versions in a non-featured way. It's never a bad time to reach out to artists again, but I'll clarify that I already did do this work before from 2009-2014, through a mass email to all ReMixers, and a forum thread where some fans also provided better encodings that they'd saved.

    Hey guys, It's been forever since I've made a proper remix. This one is definitely leaning towards more of a remake than a more traditional OCReMix so I don't think this would ever be able to be submitted. As the song progresses there's a bit more variation and deviation from the original tune. Over this was sort of a project to get me back into the swing of things. I think I really do need to submit a proper remix one day though. Either way, I'm looking for criticism on this I guess more on the mixing side of things. But any criticism is welcomed. Thanks for listening! ~Syllix

    First video game adaptation to be "certified fresh". The curse has been lifted, ladies and gents. Adi Shankar came across as a bit of cocky douchebag in the days leading up to its release, but I suppose he's earned the bragging rights.

    and people said I was crazy when I nuked my stuff a week and a half ago. Anyway, Soundcloud started to go downhill when they got rid of groups (because reasons), which were easily the best way to find new music and share your own; you didn't have to ostensibly resort to cold calling people to get a new follower. Especially if you just created an account — it would be like an anechoic chamber. It would also help if I wasn't getting messaged and follows from at least one bot every day telling me about what a bad girl she's been lately.

    Really cool track! There's indeed a lot of mileage wrung out of the sources, and it goes by pretty fast, you just want to listen to it again. I absolutely love the fiddle, but there's cool trading licks between the sax as well, sweet usage of the skids sfx, cool Seeeegaaaa at the start.. what a great way to open up the album, and the track stand on its own as well!

    I'd say IGN, of all places, put it best in saying (paraphrase) "When a show's biggest problem is that it's too short, you know it's doing something right."

    Someone said it well: "It's flawed but entertaining" and despite a few jokes that weren't terrible, I'm happy with it. Looking forward to season 2.

    I'm happy to announce my arrangement was used during EVO 2016 for a Super Smash Bros. Melee hype video! I don't know how big the crowd was, but looks over a thousand. Check it out here:

    My submission is up. Not my best work, but a fun little source nonetheless.

    I submitted something but I did not have awfully long to work on it. Been busy as of late.

    Potential spoilers!! (If you haven't played bravely default.) So I'm still playing through Bravely Default for the first time. I have somewhat spoiled the story for myself as I fell in love with the soundtrack before I played the game, and that lead to research. Anyway, I have just recently reached the point where Ringabel regains his memory and figures out that Airy is not quite what she claims to be. No surprises for me as I knew the general story already. Still a cool plot development. The really cool thing that I want to point out, is that when I went back into my save file after this revelation, the title screen changed!! The subtitle of the game is "Where the Fairy Flies" but when you go into your file it changes it so that "Where the F F " are in red and then fade away, leaving you with "Airy Lies" as the subtitle. It isn't something huge and amazing in terms of design, in fact, some people might never notice if they load their file too quick, but it is a really cool touch that fits in with the plot development. What are some other examples of little touches that game designers have put in that make you appreciate a game even more?

    Compo: MnP (Meat 'n Potatoes) Round 77: Final Fantasy X - Someday The Dream Will End Midi: http://compo.thasauce.net/files/materials/MnP77_findream_V1_2.mid Youtube: "Since Luke7183 didn't submit a source tune on time, I was forced to select one for round 77. Decided upon FFX - Someday Dream Will End. It's a lovely tune and irrc there isn't a remix of it on OCR. Or if there is, then it is a very liberal interpretation =p" -Hoboka Deadline: August 1st Tues @ 1PM Vote Ends: August 3rd Thurs @ 11PM Submit your remix Here when completed. MnP ARCHIVE - made by Trism 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 Covers and Sound Upgrades are permitted. 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. If you decide to do a genre swap (i.e. symphonic to techno), make sure that the conditions of #2 are met. Submissions must be at a maximum of 20mb (keeping in step with ThaSauce's file size max). Only 1 entry per participant. Previous winner cannot participate but can submit a BONUS entry. Please don't make any comments about people's entries - including your own - until the Voting process is concluded. BONUS entries are exempt of this rule. 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)

    Seconded! You got one. Sorry for being slow on this. Please do not post non-LSC related info on this thread. The thread is for project-related discussion only.

    As a further note, I wouldn't actually necessarily stick with the stock plugins the whole time, and I would be open to adding on or replacing some of them with better external plugins that you get elsewhere. For example, I don't actually think Fruity Reeverb or Reeverb 2 is nearly as flexible as ArtsAcoustic Reverb, and so I don't use them as much as I do ArtsAcoustic, but they are all reverb plugins.

    It's actually cheaper than all of the other industry-standard DAWs even if you are releasing commercially. It's 60 USD if you make less than 20,000 a year from it (which most do) and only 200 USD if you make 20k or more. Anyway, I can vouch for Reaper. I switched over to using it exclusively like...3 years ago now? Can't go back to anything else. I do wish it had superior video playback, but nothing is perfect.

    Oooh I like this so chill! Give me a cup on lemonade on a sunny day in Celadon City! I would personally increase the volume of that sax to make it stand out more because thats the driver instrument of this track. Other than that it sounds pretty nice!

    This sounds a lot like something from Phantasy Star Online. Instant awesome (no pun intended, I swear).
