  1. Skies of Arcadia - A Sailor's Serenade Recruiting has begun... again. Please read guidelines for auditioning before PMing me please. Welcome to the thread for the OC Remix collaborative site album Skies of Arcadia - A Sailor's Serenade. The video game Skies of Arcadia has an excellent soundtrack, and I believe it's time to help it shine! Project Details ______________________________ Project Coordinator: Electric Concerto Remixers: Electric Concerto SkyRiderX FinaleCadence Sbeast Instruments: MangaMan - Vocals Orangedragon - Vocals Electric Concerto - Electric Guitar Gregory Nazarian - Electric Guitar Electric Concerto - Acoustic Guitar Electric Concerto - Piano Electric Concerto - Violin Electric Concerto - Trumpet Electric Concerto - Banjo Artwork: RurouniZel Project Theme A Sailor's Serenade is an approach at appreciation with live instruments. So the project theme involves the use of at least one (1) acoustic or electronic live instrument in each remix. - Electric guitars, basses, drums, keyboards, and electric strings like electric violins are acceptable. - Sequenced virtual violins or other instruments that sound real are not. - If you are a sequencer and/or can't/don't know how to play a live instrument, collaborating with an artist who can is acceptable. - Vocals are also an acceptable live instrument. Audition Guidelines Please e-mail auditions to djeconcerto at gmail dot com (fixed e-mail for spam prevention) or PM me through these forum's PM system. Auditions are the best way for the project coordinators to get an idea of quality. - Auditioning materials need to be relevant to the part of the project you want to be part of. I.E. Remixers need to send music, instrument players need to send samples of their instrument playing, artist need to send artwork, etc. - Please send at least two samples as your auditioning material. - Artists who are invited to the project by the project coordinators are exempt from auditions. (We obviously know about their artist quality in that we felt compelled to invite them.) - Auditions are preferred to be e-mailed as opposed to PMed because the e-mail is checked several times a day. - Auditions DO NOT require a live instrument, however, if you are a musician that uses one, please audition with its involvement. - If you e-mail your audition, you can send the auditioning material as an attachment. Project Goals I would like to see a remix album of at least 14 tracks, but more would be better. If remixers would like to partake in more than one track, their second selection must wait for first selections to be complete. (Wait for everyone to have firsts before getting seconds.) New remixers can grow, as this project could help them learn many audio production techniques. New remixers should not be afraid to ask for help, and knowledgeable remixers should be able to help them. Many of you might be concerned about the previous attempt of this project, where I failed to communicate and the project ended up collecting dust. School and work have a way of doing that. But I am determined to see this to the end, and as I do not see the last attempt as a failure, but rather as an eye opener of what I was doing wrong. Timeline I'd be lying if I said the album could get done in a year. But that is the current goal. So let me propose the timeline: 7/1/14 - Recruitment begins. Recruitment will end when the goal of 10 - 14 remixers is reached. 9/1/12 - First Works in Progress (WIP) is due. WIPs include any remix and artwork. Nothing special is expected, but something should be submitted. Submission is e-mailing the WIP to a project coordinator. 11/1/12 - Second WIP is due. This is a more important update. Remixes should have the bones of the song complete. Artwork decisions should be complete and first drafts submitted. 2/1/12 - Third WIP is due. Remixes should be in the final stages of design, as well as the artwork. That way, mastering/digitizing of the project can begin. 6/1/12 - Final remixes and artwork due. That way we can begin judging and final touches before publishing. 7/1/13 - Project release. As I've said, this is a goal for the project, but deadlines get pushed back due to personal life and/or involvement with other projects. These are to be expected. All I ask is that you communicate your needs to the project coordinators so that they can work with you. Dropping off the face of the planet will only get you tossed from the project. Track Listing Skies of Arcadia has a pretty extensive track list, and in no way am I expecting every song to be covered. But the entirety of the track list is available for remixing for the project.

Recruiting process will begin next month, but you can show interest. If you were previously on the remixer and/or instrument list, let me know if you're still interested and I'll put you back on. Sorry about this dropping off like it did. I was finishing school and ended up moving (twice) and spaced the whole thing. So lets give this another shot, shall we?
  2. 'Mystical Ninja 64 Remix Album' on hiatus

    I think I can do something with "I am Impact". Sweet song to test the unknown Japanese Pop genre with.
  3. I love these types of covers. I must warn you, though, that this isn't OCR material. They no like covers so much...
  4. I just crapped myself. Amazing work! Nothing to critique here.
  5. wip Adventures of Link - Palace Theme Remix

    This is very close. Only things I can suggest is changing the instruments up for change, and ditch the fade out. Other than that, damn good music!
  6. finished Sonic 1 - Marble Zone Remix

    Second verse should be a somewhat original take on the song. Third verse should include some originality too. Try to create a better ending than fade out. Production-wise, my only complaint is it's too compressed/limited. I want to hear the flow of the song without the pulsing the drums are doing to everything else. Just my opinion on it. So awesome otherwise.
  7. [RECRUITING] Skies of Arcadia Project

    Urg... Not exactly how I was planning to run this lol. Lots of PMs sent with no bites... I got a couple, but unless we find a way to gain more interest, we're at a stalemate here... Just hang with me, we'll get this bird off the ground.
  8. Super monkey ball 2 bubbly washing machine

    I've got a WIP for you so that you can hear the progress. http://alonetone.com/djeconcerto/tracks I'm calling it Laundry Day Workout.
  9. Super monkey ball 2 bubbly washing machine

    Let me see what I can do for you. I love the SMB sound track, although I was planning something from Banana Blitz. Let me knock something out for you.
  10. [RECRUITING] Skies of Arcadia Project

    Welcome to the project, Sbeast!
  11. [RECRUITING] Skies of Arcadia Project

    I do, but I'll keep you in mind as backup. Do you have any examples of your work?
  12. [RECRUITING] Skies of Arcadia Project

    I'd like to welcome SkyRiderX back to the project! Also, we have FinaleCadence after I saw a very incredible example of his work. We have Gregory Nazarian joining us as an electric guitarist after a very cool audition, and with his help, we should have some profession sounding work for the album. Welcome aboard guys!
  13. Here is an (attempted) dubstep remix of Lyll's Dungeon from the game Legacy of the Wizard. Source: Remix: http://electricconcerto.com/music/legacydubstep2.mp3 (Update 3) This is my first attempt at creating dubstep, so any help from those experienced dubstep ReMixers would be so awesome. Any feedback, in fact, would be awesome. Thanks!
  14. [RECRUITING] Skies of Arcadia Project

    Recruiting has been restarted! Send your auditions my way and lets get this show on the road!
  15. [RECRUITING] Skies of Arcadia Project

    Hi everyone! Sorry this project ended up collecting dust (dang it all) but I'm ready to tackle (heh) this again. Let me know if you're interested!
  16. wip Lavender town remix (crunk)

    Hmmm. I like what you're going after, but this song has some issues I hope you can iron out. The beginning hurts my ears: the organ synth just clashes too much. Try less delay or reverb and maybe some EQing. The clap is WAY too loud. I suggest maybe a lower frequency and slightly less volume to make it less distracting. You can still have a punchy clap without it being too much. Overall, the mix is good, but a bit boring the first half. I like how you started mixing it up after that, but I was ready to switch songs halfway through. There are some other issues, but I think this might be a good place to start. Baby steps.
  17. wip Legacy of the Wizard - Meyna's Level Theme

    I want to hear this, but I'm not opening any webpage that Google says contains malware.
  18. finished Legacy of the Wizard - Lyll's Soundroom

    I'm putting this up for Mod Review. Hopefully I can get some more feedback to help me finish this up. Feeling pumped after the Super Mario 64 album release!
  19. OCRA-0048 - Super Mario 64: Portrait of a Plumber

    Yay! I finished a project! Haha.
  20. finished Sonic 2 - Casino Night Zone (Jazzy Arranged Version)

    I don't know. It seemed like there was a bunch of background noise, probably coming from the hi-hat. Something was off, and I think it could have been a tad cleaner. Other than that, sounds good!
  21. wip Banjo and Kazooie's Symphony of Adventure!

    Source is simply the original song. And just copy the address bar of soundcloud instead of using their share option. Try this soundfont: http://www.gamefront.com/files/21458874/SGM-V2.01.sf2 It has some really good sound quality instruments, hence, its monstrous size. There are some really good free VSTs out there, if you're willing to search a bit for them. Play with the EQ. Play with the stereo. Listen to other songs and analyze their sounds. For now, though, focus on the arrangement. The mastering will come over time as you relink your remix.
  22. wip Dark Cloud 2 - Veniccio piano bar

    Piano sounds kind of thin. I like pianos to be full and warm, especially in this style of music. I hear a couple sour notes in there. Nothing too drastic, but if you were trying to go for majestic, these notes are not it. Try to stick to your key when you get to the ambitious parts and you got something going. You need some sort of change up in there. The song begins to get a little stale, and it's a shame. Put in some kind of change in song flow to keep it interesting, because right now it's something I want to fall asleep to, but not enjoy.
  23. wip Banjo and Kazooie's Symphony of Adventure!

    Two things right off the bat: Please include a link to the source and please do not use tiny urls. It makes people reluctant to click on it (Tiny urls are notorious for viruses). Alright, so some cleaning up of the instruments is in order. They also sound too fake. Maybe some EQing and effects could fix those up. I recommend some banjo in there somewhere. Just my personal opinion. Other than that, add some more originality and you're good to go!
  24. finished Metroid - Brinstar Depths (Metal Arranged Version)

    Nothing to complain about here, which is a first for me. Awesome performance, awesome arrangement, tight production. Sounds ready for submission to me.
  25. wip NiGHTS Into Dreams - The Amazing Water

    I think you may have misunderstood what I meant by "excitement". I'm talking about elements in the song that interrupt the flow in a way to keep it interesting. It can be ambient smooth pads meant to relax you, but without some sort of shift in flow, the song becomes boring and unexciting. I'm looking for that next stop in the proverbial bus route that wakes me up from the stupor of the train ride. Know what I mean?
