  1. 80 - Daniel Ran

    The link text is right, but the actual link points to the previous episode.
  2. 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.
  3. PRC364 - The 14th Anniversary (Free Round)

    Sadly it turns out I have no time for this this time around..
  4. From the point of view of a patron of this site, I would personally say OCR should definitely be open to posting long-form pieces as long as they fit into submission guidelines. There's a strong recommendation of length between 2-7 minutes, but that's still just a recommendation! Longer stretches of music are more difficult to pull off, but there's a ton of value there if it succeeds.
  5. Love the style. Very effective transformation of the source, the union of the beat, the atmosphere and the synths with the original tune works both ways. I do like the simple source, so I'm quite happy to hear a version that retains some of its feel, is very recognizable and yet covers plenty of new territory. One good example is how the bass moves to introduce harmonic variation that briefly changes the 'emotion' of the tune, and then returns back to the solemn single note bass. I also liked the ending, it feels like a transition out of the tune, which works nicely in album context.
  6. PRC364 - The 14th Anniversary (Free Round)

    Planning to participate. It's been a year ...
  7. Classic Mazedude goodness. Cool interpretation, even literally, it's a good point that this transforms the soundscape to something quite a bit more chilling. I'm playing the game right now, I remembered Mazedude made an arrangement so had to seek it out and give it a fresh listen.
  8. Ads on OC ReMix YouTube Channel

    The transparency is appreciated. I don't really see any potential problem with the non-profit separate entity stuff now in effect (mega-yay for that!).
  9. 74 - Halloween Special 2

    Phan-tom-tastic and funny episode.
  10. Not cool bro panel.

    I've been boring people in creative fields by going on and on about OCR and that's pretty much their comment.
  11. OverClocked PlayList: Obscure Music

    Aww, I'm sad I missed this theme. Nice selection though. Happy to see Michał Wasilewski there (Violett). His soundtrack for Millie is great, haven't actually listened to Violett yet.
  12. Very nice, very pleasant. I see the point about harp and violin competing for the same sonic space, though I kind of perceive them as the same part rather than different parts I was needing to hear separately. Overall the mixing was impeccably balanced, background instruments in the background and leads alternating with clarity and variation. The bass sound is surprisingly treble-y, it kind of calls for attention to itself and made me expect it making some more active movements, like fills and what not here and there. That was a slightly missed opportunity I felt. Can't really think of anything else to criticize here. I like the fake string section taking lead in places, it's a mushy instrument but the rest of the arrangement ducks away to give it the space it needs. Violin sounds lovely, the (subdued) trumpet sounds lovely. Lots of participants in this mix but everyone is following the same shared vision. Nice game/series/platform pick as well for sure.
  13. OverClocked PlayList: Game Boy Music

    Trip World, nice. Here's my pick for the racing playlist: Mmm, the days of having just got the shiny new original DS. This used to catch my ear.
  14. 72 - Emily McMillan and Joe Chen

    Good episode! I get a lot out of Behind the Lines, and Laura is always fun to hear outside of the segment as well. Also apparently Stardew Valley has some good musics.
  15. I like this, super-effective, punchy and funky. I only listened after reading the write-up, but the piano does sound exactly on point with the style. Being less mechanical might even make it less effective. I did play Chip's Challenge back in the day, but didn't actually have a soundcard then, so the music is still unfamiliar to me!
