  1. So I have a project I've been working on recently that I'm not sure how to tag. It's essentially a remix of someone else's remix (a doujin artist specifically). I want my tagging to reflect that I borrowed heavily from the doujin artist's arrangement without implying collaboration. I considered doing "Me vs. %Artist% - %Title% (%Version%)", but to me the "vs." implies the collaboration of the other party. If anyone has suggestions they would be appreciated!
  2. riiiiise fwom your gwave Any chance of seeing more of this material sometime soon? :0 I thought the preview was rad as all hell and I click back on your Soundcloud every once in a while hoping for more.
  3. https://soundcloud.com/dew-2/golden-sun-felixs-battle-theme/s-2UMz1 Continuing on mixing feedback I received on this song in this thread, I've been working on another track. This uses the same mixer inserts from my last song, and I've spent a bit of time trying to improve some of my issues that were touched upon by other posters. In particular, I've made some reductions around 6kHz-7kHz (not sure if this is the right area, but it's what sounded best after experimentation), turned off some mics on my kick VST that I decided were probably unneeded, and fiddled with the EQ on the kick and bass to try and eliminate some overlap. I believe the kick is a bit more distinct now, possibly less muddy? Would greatly appreciate any additional mixing feedback.
  4. Thanks for the feedback, my mixing is always something I'm looking to improve. I'm self-taught, so pardon me if some of my questions seem a little silly: Regarding the feedback you and others have posted on the upper mids being too earsplitting, what frequency range should I be looking at? I'm not hearing anything extraordinary, but I'm not anywhere near a point where I trust my own ears, so I'm glad to have this stuff pointed out to me. Also, on my faster songs I tend to get similar feedback about the kick being muddy, but I really don't know where to start with this. Would you say it's kind of just slurring together with the bass? Or is it not pronounced enough in general?
  5. Toned down the upper mids slightly overall and reworked the ending. The MP3 has been updated.
  6. Original: Remix: http://dew-owns-it.com/oops/Dew%20-%20Infidel.mp3 Pretty much complete but tagged as WIP since I'm looking for feedback before I call it finished. Heavily inspired by Saitama Saishuu Heiki. In particular, I'm told the ending doesn't work. I was kind of trying to it ease it out but maybe it just ended up being weak for no reason... I welcome anyone's opinion on whether it works or doesn't, in addition to any other gripes, no matter how minor.
  7. http://dew-owns-it.com/oops/Dew%20-%20Neon%20Gearbox.mp3 This one started out as a stage theme and ended up being a full song. I actually worked my ass off on this one, on things like making it seem more coherent instead of just slapping down whatever came to mind and sounded right. Also I worked pretty damn hard on the mixing. Not that I usually don't, but I wanted this one to be my best so far. I'm told that it's close to being over-compressed, but not too bad. I'm also told that the transition after the end of the solo (around 3:12) is kinda jarring, and that the ending is too sudden/isn't dynamic enough or something. I'm looking for ways to make it better so any and all opinions/suggestions are welcome.
  8. I love how you worked in Awakening. It's one of my favorite boss themes, for sure. Whatever you're using for a rhythm guitar leaves quite a bit to be desired, unfortunately, and I think you could probably tone down on the reverb all around.

    Awesome, thanks.

    Hey, just wondering if I could possibly get my nick changed back to "Dew" instead of "Dew.". http://ocremix.org/forums/member.php?u=12085 This account was an alt account of somebody's used for UnMod shenanigans back in the day. I'd changed my name for some reason, and came into possession of the alt account's password, so I decided to change the password and later on ended up using it as a placeholder for my own account name. Farther down the road, the original user of the alt account got banned, and the alt account was banned as well, therefore I wasn't able to log back into it and get my name back. At least I think something like that happened, it's been six years since then. In any case, that other account is me, I somehow glazed over this thread for the longest time, and it'd rule to have my name back to normal after all these years.
  11. I'm trying to get a track off of an .iso for Dungeon Master II: Skullkeep on the Sega CD. Namely the theme for the last boss, which I remember hearing as a kid when I loaded the actual physical CD in player mode on the system. That CD and the system, however, are both in a box somewhere in my parents' basement two states away. I figured I could just take this .iso and play it the same way I would an audio CD, but none of my media players recognize it, and the audio isn't visible when exploring the disc. I've read that a mac recognizes it as two discs, one audio and one data, but I can't confirm this. Also, I tried running both GENS and Fusion in CD player mode, but for some reason that doesn't produce any sound. I see the dB meters moving for the left and right channels, but I don't hear anything. The game itself plays fine and has music. Is there anyone here with better knowledge of how this works? Sorry for asking about ROMs and whatnot, but I own the game in question, I simply don't have access to it at the moment.
  12. Why not pirate?

    You're blowing things way out of proportion. I'd be willing to bet that some (not all) of the people in this thread railing on software piracy have retail music on their hard drives that they didn't think twice about downloading without paying for.
  13. Why not pirate?

    This is precisely what I was thinking. Thank you for articulating this.
  14. Why not pirate?

    Your skilled vs. unskilled argument is really tiring. I'll accept your stance on the moral implications of piracy, but whether someone has the skills to properly use a program is completely irrelevant and just a tool you're using to place yourself on a pedestal above others with differing values.
  15. Why not pirate?

    I'm aware of the iLok system. One's currently plugged into the back of my desktop, since back in 2009 I bought Ministry of Rock and used it extensively before I discovered Shreddage. My income was a bit more expendable at the time. I still use it for my bass and lead guitar.
