  1. Seiken Densetsu 3 - 2020 here we come!

    I wish I could say we're releasing tomorrow. Nope, not quite there yet. We're working closely with ocr staff to finally get this thing finished. Trailer's been shown at a panel. Audio is just some track length/silence edits and tagging from being done. It's close, but not quite tomorow.
  2. Where to post?

    Welcome! Nah, the forum's open to all kinds of things. If it's arrangements of other people's video game music, it goes into the remixes board. If it's your original works, or anything that isn't video game music remixes, it goes into originals. You can post about your own album involvement in community only if you're "posted" (official ocremixer, with an official mixpost). But the Post Your Own X subforums are open to everyone. And don't worry about posting in the wrong place. The worst that can happen is that a forum admin moves your thread. When you post your music here, I suggest you also state what you're looking for in terms of feedback (including none at all), you're more likely to get what you want than if you just post a link and expect people to understand what you want from it. Eg if you're mostly looking for technical feedback, mention that in the post and you're more likely to get it. If you're writing remixes for your own album rather than for official ocr mixposts, mention that to avoid getting ocr-style arrangement -specific critiques.

    Answered. Protip for other projects: decide where to manage the project. We're spread across too many platforms, including but not limited to AIM, Facebook, ocr PMs, this thread, email, and Discord. Despite my attempts to consolidate communication, that is. I'm currently picking tracks for the release flood. I have about 30 flood track candidates. It's a few too many. This is a problem I never foresaw.
  4. Mwahahah, I picked the right time to take a vacation from evals. Man, I thought I made long tracks. That's probably why you haven't been getting much feedback. People are scared of it. I've yet to listen to it myself, I'm just dropping by to laugh at Gario. Looking forward to listening, though, when I think I have the time. Also, I suggest you sub the full-length thing to ocr. Maybe a regular remix release isn't the best way to release it, but I want to see what the judges have to say about it.

    He's making a list. He's checking it twice. He can't rhyme. He speaks in third person. He wants track notes and bios, because he's misplaced a lot of them, and others he never got. That's what's on the list.
  6. My stupid synth is making stupid noises at stupid times. Modal bank madness. I'm not using that one again before I've messed around with it and understand it better, and can solve problems like this. I've been bouncing release candidates for most of the day already, and listening for glitches. The danger with that is that as soon as I find a version without glitches, I find something I want to edit in the mix. That's happened a few times already.

    @Wiesty, I still have your old wips. Would have been cool to see what you would have made of those. Granted, they're old old, but still. Everyone else, I have a shortage of track notes and bios. I've yet to look through ocr PMs, so I'm hoping the majority of them are there. But if you haven't sent me anything, or want to update what you sent, please do. I mean, we can release without your bios and track notes (and we want to release it, honest), and as demonstrated, I can make stuff up for you, too.
  8. I've yet to give the album a proper listen, but I had a quick skip around and grabbed a few tracks for my chill playlist. From that impression, it seems a lot of the tracks have nice percussion stuff. Cool, and it adds some cohesion to the album.

    Yes, a florist.

    Good advice for project directors: consolidate your data early and often. I've been trying to find all the bios and track notes our remixers have sent us. I've got a good bunch of them, and I've yet to dig through ocr PMs and facebook messages. But if you're an artist on the project and you know you haven't sent us a bio and some thoughts on your track, please do so. Otherwise I have to make stuff up. For example: HoboKa: "Malevolent Intent was written as a symphonic poem for three kazoos and a florist, with a solo originally intended for an actual elephant. It contrasts and compares Finnish grammar with the gradual day-night cycle implementation in the game. The remix has a very personal meaning for me, as it reflects my feelings about the number of syllables in my name. I think it's my best work from back then, that particular week when I finished it. I hope you enjoy it." I hope no track notes or bios are in my aim convo history. I'd hate to have to go through all that as well. Also: the Secret of Mana album is out! Go grab it now!

    Good. I've seen some criticism and such over ocr vs. money, and have been wondering if I should agree with it. This should clear that up.
  12. I need to know if this is normal...

    I feel you, man. My stuff is meandering, lazily thrown together ideas that are barely competently mixed. Every so often I make something amazing. And I'm surprised by it. Then I listen to my other stuff and feel I'll already peaked. But I'm biased. It's the output that matters, not how confident I feel about my skills or how much time I spent on a track or what amazing techniques I used. Maybe all my good works are happy accidents. But that's okay too. With every track, the frequency (and happiness) of my accidents increases.That's what skill means. It doesn't mean you necessarily feel you know what you're doing. It means the output is good. Practice makes pancakes. The more, the better. The better you get. And the more pancakes we get. And if you want to grow, challenge yourself. Start making tracks that copy the structure of successful compositions. Make tracks following some specific logic, some specific structure or direction. And make more pancakes.

    So long as there's transparency, I'm cool with it. Can we see some more specific numbers, like an end-of-the-year report on costs and revenue? How much is being paid out of pocket, how much does patreon cover, ads, other donations, other costs...
  14. Ah, of course. Didn't think to check the date posted. But it takes several months to get through the judging and posting process, so if you're aiming for a specific date it's probably best to give ocr 6 months to work. My xmas album remixes, usually submitted in December, tend to get posted during summer. If you really want your mix posed around halloween, you can request that in the submission email. Provided it fits the standards.
  15. Cool source and style. The synth bass is pretty loud/bright. It almost behaves like a lead. Be careful with how loud you get frequencies of different instruments get. Mix with levels but also EQ. The beat is muffled and soft. I don't know what you're talking about when it comes to getting this through the submission queue in time. In time for what? The queue isn't purged at the end of the year or something. I have a feeling this is too conservative for ocr, but I'd have to go over the source and your remix a few times to be sure. Don't let that stop you from subbing, if that's what you're aiming for. Sub it when you think it's ready.
