    Oh cool, something in my field of expertise! Some quick tips: -pitch up a bit the closed hats so that the drum groove is tighter -raise the volume of the open hat -change the snare sound, the current one sounds too "boxy" like some general MIDI drum, try something more snappy -tone down the resonance on the bassline filter and open the filter a little bit, shorten a little bit the notes so you have a tighter 16th sequence and less mud -you can sidechain the low freq (250hz and down) of your main leads to get a clearer sounding mix, same for the snare -work on the dynamics of the tracks, so far it sounds like you've laid down one idea after another to check if they go well with the kick/bass combo, add at least one breakdown in the track to control the overall energy

    Royd Rage

    So last year I submitted this track to the tender mercies of The Judges and it was summarily rejected (sob, wail etc). I've finally decided to revisit the track and would appreciate any help and suggestions on how to improve it. Source:

    MnP 86: Super Paper Mario - Woah Zone

    Explain your usual workflow and describe what aspects of it you think need to be improved. Or maybe pick a part of someone else's remix that you enjoyed and try to recreate it.

    I realize that I posted a different track earlier, but I just finished this one today and I feel that it's probably a better suit for Overclocked Remix. I used themes from Lon Lon Ranch and Kakariko Village; this was partly inspired by the tavern in Link Between Worlds, where the musicians there would play themes from different area's/games. This idea for this piece is that you walk into a tavern playing the Lumpy Pumpkin Theme, but the players also mix in elements from other games as well. If this site has a rule against Soundscape elements (ie, tavern background, beginning and end), please let me know; it's too easy to remove it. Enjoy, and let me know if it has potential to be submitted here! Original: -Juke

    Thanks for the extension! I was hoping to finish up my entry yesterday, but Life happens. Mine will be a bit more on the... darker side... and might stray a bit from the original feel, but I bet you'll enjoy it.

    Starter Headphones...

    Having said that, I also have a pair of Sony MDR 7506. They are very different from the DT880s: The Sony is closed backed, whereas the DT880 is semi open. This makes the Sony great for recording (because no sound leaks out), but when mixing the DT880 gives a much better representation of the stereo field and it makes appropriate panning and how it translates to speakers a lot easier. Both have a more pronounced top end, but the DT880 is better at the low end. That makes mixing your bass easier on the DT880 and it also makes the Sony sound more toppy. There is still bass enough to work with, but you have to work harder at it. In all fairness you could probably mix on both of them, once you've spent enough time with them and know their characteristics. But the DT880 make it a lot easier and are -to my ears- overall more pleasant to listen to. For any headphones, pick something that you like the sound of, that fits your budget and spend the time to get very familiar with how they sound, I'd say.

    MnP 86: Super Paper Mario - Woah Zone

    Submitted my bonus entry! I've noticed everyone comments that I need to go deeper with my ReMixes. I think I failed to create something unique this submission. Again. I really don't know how to make a good ReMix and I want to learn.

    @TurboChaser Wow, it's very flattering that you made an account just for this song! Thank you for your praise! @mothershipl Awesome! This is a feedback gold mine! Alright, I will try everything you suggested, although I can't make any promises that all of it will be fixed exactly like you suggest, only that I'll try everything and see what fits. You guessed somewhat right about the progression of the song. Everything up to the 2:59 mark was planned. Everything after was pretty much spaghetti thrown against the wall...

    I made this account just to comment as Heavyarms here sent me the link and I have to say it's shaping up really well! I've asked one of my friends who makes Psytrance (Known as 'Mothership Loudspeakerz') to maybe post a comment here or tell me what to relay to you. But I can tell you it sounds good! Don't worry about it being too repetitive. For a Psytrance song this is pretty variant imo. Keep it up! P.S I love Ducktales
  18. 1 point
    Thanks, and I'm still figuring out how to fix the repetition. Psytrance is almost literally trance on drugs. Psytrance is short for psychedelic trance. A couple of key things are the kick and drum, the synth special effects (like the "squelch"), and the emotional journey it takes you. I know thats like trying to explain "love" as "chemicals in the brain", but I'm new the the genre and there may be people who can explain it better than I. Another key thing to mention is that psytrance got it's roots in Goa, India. That's how the very similar Goa Trance genre got it's name. Goa Trance is a more mellow form of psychedelic trance with more of a traditional Indian sound, whereas psytrance is more about experimenting with synths and is generally an insane form of a sound. I must also say that psytrance is a bit of an aquired taste. Like I said, I'm not explaining it well, but that's the gist of it.

    Nothing to add, you did a pretty good job again!

    The idea to mix both songs is nice and works pretty well. I think the arrangement could need a bit more variation, after 2 minutes it becomes a bit a bit too repetitive (which I wouldn't mind as background music in a game though). Otherwise I like the sounds you used in this.

    Another great track from the SoM album (which I'd rate as like the 2nd best remix album on OCR). I don't recognize the source tune at all but this is still great and the hip hop lyrics are a real highlight for me.

    79 - MAGFest 2018

    Oh! I forgot Specter of Torment was 2017, it's probably the other game of last year I played (and finished too). Clever pick from @Jorito and also it's no surprise you're leading with Sonic Mania.

    Good dynamics, good EQ, excellent arrangement. Only complaint I have is that some of the instruments sound too mechanical. Not your fault per say, just the nature of the samples used. Good luck with your eval!
  25. 1 point
    They may be hard, but that's what practice is for. Arrangement wise, I don't know the original, so I'll comment based on your arrangement alone. I know there are times when freestyle playing creates better emotional music, but pianists can spare a foot to keep tempo. Organists, not so much. My advise would be to get a silent metronome app or something to help you keep tempo. I also suggest either get a stereo mic or mix your mono so that it comes through both speakers. Audacity might be for you. Other than that, I love the arrangement. Very soothing.

    You know, I always dreamed of doing a cinematic remix of this theme, but never got around to it. Unfortunately, I have extremely high standards when it comes to orchestrated music, so this remix bothers me a little. I'm not leaving at that, though, as this is a forum heavily reliant on constructive criticism. It does have somewhat of a Zimmer sound to it, albeit not completely, and that's alright. May need more strings, brass, and woodwinds to really bring out the potential, but that is a matter of my own opinion. Even though this is focused on a bassy theme, the EQing makes it sound muddy and distant. You can still keep the bassy premise while still giving it sparkle and breath. I hope you consider some of this before you truely consider this complete. I really want this remix!

    OverClocked ReTreat

    I can probably help with the organizing thing. Deposit would be out of reach for me right now, but as far as handling organizing how this thing will go, I can at least contribute. (Plus I'll see if I can get some good BBQ catered for a meal while we're there if I do contribute)

    UPDATE: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1m3YYVVnYbIgs8ESnUkODWkpYyO4MiEEn/view?usp=drivesdk Finished the skeleton of the song and did some EQing. Overall I like how this is sounding, but there are some nitpicky things with the sound that i want to fix, as well as some repetitious parts. I'm also experimenting with different sounds and effects, so I may add more later.

    Link's Awakening - Ghost House

    Hey guys, how's it going? My first post here. I have a remix from one of my favorite games, Link's Awakening. This one was a lot of fun to remix. Once it took off, it pretty much made itself, like I was both the driver and the passenger. I’m looking to see if I can get a second opinion on where I can improve. Particularly, if there's anything in the mix that stands out, or perhaps in the arrangement. Thanks a lot. I wasn’t planning on submitting this officially, but I changed my mind and decided to give it a shot.

    With the go ahead from @djpretzel, I waited until their OCRemix Panel was complete this past Saturday at MAGFest where they would premiere this exclusive preview of this album: Arcadia Legends! Now that the MAGFest panel is over, it is time to unveil the trailer to the rest of you who didn't make it to MAGFest this year! Hopefully you all enjoy the sneak peek soundbytes in this trailer and get hyped. For those who were on the fence of contributing to it, guess what? We still got a few more tracks left to claim! By all means, shoot us a note and we can get things started! We're almost to the end! Kudos to my co-director Modus for building off the base trailer I had created and making a fantastic version of it!

    Hey all! I wanted to share my latest project with you. I've been working on re-imagining the soundtrack to Chrono Cross as if it were a film score - classic symphony orchestra and all. What I'm sharing is the 2nd track on the album (I'm currently writing the 4th) of around 12 or so. I don't mind feedback, but mostly I wanted to share this with other fans of the series and get the album a little exposure before I try to kickstart a release later this year. I hope you enjoy it! I also can post the 1st track and parts of 3 and 4 if anyone is interested! 02 Far From Home - Cross Symphonic P.S. sorry if I posted this in the wrong section...

    Preview Secret of Mana: Resonance of the Pure Land: http://youtu.be/DYlf2HK-Vt4 Download Secret of Mana: Resonance of the Pure Land: http://mana.ocremix.org Torrent: http://bt.ocremix.org/torrents/Secret_of_Mana_-_Resonance_of_the_Pure_Land.torrent Welcome to the Secret of Mana album, a project that was started way back in 2011. Kicking life back into a project that has lain dormant for so long normally isn't easy, but when you're talking about a game that is as beloved as Secret of Mana, magic definitely can happen! Growing up, I never owned a Super Nintendo, but that didn't stop me from playing and enjoying a lot of SNES RPGs. Of course, I did play and beat Secret of Mana, and I still have "Fond Memories" of the game and its music. Especially the calm, sad songs and the whale sounds are still imprinted in my mind, and instantly bring back memories of good times and bouts of nostalgia. Even though the album restart had its fair share of hiccups/problems, I can't help but be incredibly proud of how it all turned out. Big kudos to the artists who really stepped up their game and created these very diverse and creative but still very recognizable interpretations of the world and sounds of the Secret of Mana, and also to Tabby, who really caught the essence of Mana in her beautiful artwork. I'm sure you'll enjoy listening to it just as much as we enjoyed creating it! - Jorrith Schaap (Jorito) The Secret of Mana has always had a special place in my heart -- one of my favorite games of all time. This was one of the first RPGs I ever completed and I've played through this game many, many times since then. The soundtrack for this game has always made me think of the beauty and diversity of nature and the careful balance that maintains them. To me, each track conveys an aspect of this world of Mana and since the center of nature in this world is the Mana Tree, it only made sense that the theme of our album would revolve around the sounds you might hear in the forest surrounding this world-supporting tree -- the Resonance of the Pure Land. All the remixers have brought their own resonance to this project, often taking their remixes in completely different directions than I expected -- I think this gives the album a distinctly unique flavor that still reflects the themes and values in the game itself. It has been an amazing experience to have worked with such talented and diverse musicians and with Jorrith on directing. I learned a heck of a lot from everyone, enjoyed watching this project grow, and I'm happy I was able to be part of it. I hope you will enjoy this album and hope it becomes as much as classic for you, the listener, as the Secret of Mana itself. - Mike Postans (The Nikanoru)

    In the past 2 weeks, we've been wrapping up work on the album, received some track updates, finished the artwork and other bits and bobs. In short: we just sent over the final package to OCR staff so they can do their thing and bring it to y'all. To celebrate, I updated the first post of this thread with the album art as a teaser for the good things to come. Only a bit more time before we can finally share the good stuff with you all

    Disney In Talks To Buy Most of Fox

    It's a fun idea to have the Marvel universe all come together and all, but I'm thinking more in terms of Disney's monopolistic tendancies when I say I don't think this is a good thing for the rest of us. They have the tendancy to dig their copyright-law claws hard into IPs and franchises that make them lots of money. I'm still rather pissed at em' for changing copyright law to extend their Mickey Mouse rights constantly, which is preposterous. If the merger happens I think there'll be some cool short-term gains, but I don't think it's healthy in the long term to have one company in control of so much IP, especially when they've got a record of not letting things go once they've got hold of it.
