  • Biography I am just an average joe/musician who is trying to make a living in musik and stuff. In my free time (when I have any) I like to play music, listen to music, write music, play my guitar, play my synth, remix various game tunes and essentially anything music related. Lots of music.

    About my remixes, I use reason 4 primarily, but I also use Ableton Live on occasion.

    As for collaboration, I am more than happy to help you out with whatever you might need me for, but I am a busy guy so I might not have the time.

  2. The OCR mashup thread!

    Sorry about the title
  3. So sometimes, I like to do mashups. I knowother people do too, so lets post some mashups! I'll go first: Info: Monstrous Turtles by Zircon -ocremix.org/remix/OCR01558 Acapellas from: Bon Jovi - Its my Life Dream Theater - Pull Me Under Dio - Holy Diver Survivor - Eye of the Tiger Queen - I Want It All

    GUNNA JUMP ON THE BEFORE/AFTER OCR BANDWAGON Before OCR After OCR I'm not gunna lie. OCR made step up my game in a big way
  5. Keith Emerson Dead at 71

    Oh yeah, hewas a massive influence on Nubou. To be fair, VERY influential, Emerson Lake and Palmer are probablyTHE most famous forgotten band ever - according to everyone who remembers them, in their peak, they were the biggest rock band in the world - more popular than Led Zeppelin, Queen, Pink Floyd etc etc. Sadly, time hasn't been kind to the bands popularity, but everyone over a certain age remembers who they are, and most musicians worth some shit who knew about themwere inspired by them, VGM included.
  6. Keith Emerson Dead at 71

    Keith Emerson was, for my money, the best keyboardist ever. His commandof the instrument and harmonic interplay was aheadof its time. Tarkus in particular is something to just be in aweof. Plus, such an influence on so many famous musicians, includingones within the VGM community.A more monumental loss than I think most people will realise.

    I think that for many, variation = lack of repetition. The general public are very used to hearing songs with more repetition than OCR offers overall I've found. Many songs follow a verse/chorus format and often, other than lyrical content in the verses, much of it is cut and paste, with exception of instrumental performances (same parts, just recorded again).Sure there are exceptions but generally, I find OCRs standards require a bit more effort to keep things interesting. Plus, because we're dealing with (mostly) instrumentals, track structures can tend to be a bit more open.Thats just my take on it.

    Just to make my stance clear, I don't hate repetition generally. I hate it in my own music. I'm my own worst critic by a thousand million miles. Probably

    Ok thats a clickbait and totally untrue headline but I am curious. When I joined OCR, I found that they required a specific style of arrangement. And I think that has generally influenced the way I write my music now. I hate repetition. In fact, I often have trouble making something that has the same tempo throughout, I either have to go halftime, or double time, or change the tempo completely, change my style halfway through the track... my music has gone MEGA progressive thanks to OCRs influence. I was talking to Sir_Nuts who claimed he hates repeating himself to the point of reducing his output for the fear of sounding samey.So OC Remixers! How has OCR changed your music?
  10. oh! oops. Sorry OA. Hey I'll hit him up, we could collab maybe? I got a cool plan for it but OA Collab is also kewl maybe if he's game
  11. I'd like to claim Death (Heart Of Fire) Please
  12. Post your SoundCloud

  13. This is still happening? Gunna have to wait a bit more for my track... I've got some rather pressing deadlines right now... how is the deadline looking?
  14. Arrangement is amaaaaaazing. Production is a bit muddy at points but the arrangement just farts all over it. Killer Studio Chops indeed. Moar. Edit: I just realised the guitarist is Bret Garsed. THAT. IS. AWESOME. If people don't know who he is, he's the guitarist in NELSON:
