  1. Just saw this. I have actually been working on a remix for the port theme. I have live violin recorded and the track arranged but I still have a bit of editing and work to do. I am hoping to finish it in the next couple weeks. Its not even in the original OST, so I never thought it would get any love anywhere else. I would be open to releasing it with the albumbut I may opt to have it released separately before as well. Let me know if you're interested.
  2. This is what happens when worlds collide

    I agree that the verse is striking in similarity but thats about it from the track and besides the soundscape there is nothing really identifiably unique to what Powerman 5000 is doing in their track that correlates. The two chords that are strungtogether in the same key, with the generic boom-tis beat, and ASMR vocals are what makes it striking but none of those are enough to relay infringement. You can hear it as an homage which Yoshida says was the idea but they don't rip off the original besides mimicking the genre. The song's chorus goes in a different direction and they don't mimic any other parts of the song except the verse. The hooks of both tracks are very different from each other and merit separate creativity as far the songwriting is. Soken is an amazing talent and while he brings influences from other places he has his own stamp and personality. Kanno is also someone with immense talent that does questionable things like this all the time, but she too is a talent that transcends her work with what she is influenced by.

    Wes, I have a confirmed collab with Jeff Ball (violin), Abi Coffer (flute/piccolo), Doug Perry (marimba) andWilbert Roget (recorder) for "Little Sprite".
  4. Current OCR Projects Situation: Analysis and Solutions

    The only reason i bring it up is because I believe SD3 was around the same when FF7 was in development. It's been around a LONG time.

    SD3 is way older than 2008 just to chime in here.

    Let's see if Jeff responds. He's what came to mind for the part but I do feel like I need another lead for color. Not certain what and the obvious for a flute is not something I'm sure of but I would have someone in mind for that. If someone out there had a desire and wanted to riff on the melody with some variations that could serve as a spring board. A live upbeat realistic performance riffing on the sections with variations is my general idea. Fleshing out the instrumentation and giving it new life.
  7. Secret of Mana

    I could still be up for doing Little Sprite but I'd need some talent to pull it off. Want a live violinist who can shred.If @some1namedjeff is interested to play and riff off an arrangement, I'll put it together andclaim it. Could also opt for @DrumUltimAto do some mallet/percussionand maybe@bustatunezfor some basic flute/etc but need some fleshing to do around the violin first. Gotta keep that fast spirit alive so it'll need some real talent like those guys.

    omg, is this actually coming out? i've been lurking for like 2 years since they said the music was finished.
  9. Final Fantasy VIII: Collision Course - ReMixing Phase

    Also need to say how I love how OA took "Ride On" its under the radar from the rest of the track but always stood out to me. Fun track.

    I haven't heard your work till now. I gotta say I really enjoy the progressive nature of it. Very cool ideas. I will be up for helping you with mixing, drum programming, and bass. I'll let you take lead and just give you feedback. But I'll be picky to get this right and we'll take this track to the next level. Liberi Fatali is such a critical track for the soundtrack, so its gotta be good. I can reamp your tracks so if you'll keep the dry recordings as well and that can give us options. I could do the same with orchestra, but you should just blend it how you like it. EWQLS should be fine enough but don't commit the ambiance. I'm not sure if they give multi mic placements only with the more expensive libraries. I can give you a lot of criticism on orchestration. In a rock format hinged on sounding contemporary though you really don't need the theory as much as much as an ear for what sounds right because so much gets lost in the mix.Feel free to message me with your thoughts and we can connect.

    A fair and cool-headed response but those tomatoes were for me.

    Dave, if you really liked and respected my work you wouldn't ask me to change a synth lead sound that you didn't preferentially like just to get dp'd. This site isn't about you making just what you want of it. There's a community much larger with lots of passion involved. And when you lose respect and trample on that then people get frustrated and hurt. I didn't make this post with the intention to make enemies out of anyone but when pressed I wrote my mind. Make me the enemy of myself to make yourself look better if you will . I appreciate the experiences and how I have grown to better understand what I do and don't want to do; and with the process I have no regrets. I am moving forward. I don't consider you or anyone here my enemy but I don't imagine I will contribute or work toward a common goal here again. This is old news in that, after FF4, I distanced myself from the process and community to entertain contributing meagerly on a case by case basis for others' projects here. But now, post college, with how my requests are handled and how I am left, I will be contributing elsewhere. And I know it doesn't mean much to anyone here .

    Frankly, I don't know what this site is really about. Its so convoluted. Trying to get anything beyond the leadership is like pulling teeth. It's extremely clickish and anyone trying to do more quickly finds out. I'm done with games and been so for awhile. I was trying to fix a blemish but seems no one really cares. You think ill sub a mix I spent 9 months on with all the resources, time, and money spent to have it just get lost in the que like I have been treated before. No thank you. I have better things to do with my time. I'm done. And this is just my reaction expressed so I can get it off my chest cause I really did try for a moment. I've moved past this years ago as anyone that knows me will understand. So I leave this as a memory of the past because I don't care to give any more. I won't sub for just the merit of not caring anymore and meeting others for how much they care for those that do go beyond in contributing. Peace.

    Thanks for the comments. #1 I am not asking for it to get replaced. Since I'm not in power to do that, I won't ask for it. #2 I'm not stupid and I know I can't erase the old version for existence but I would like to not support the version that is still available. #3 My feelings represent my sentiment as a whole for the amount of time I contributed to the project for the community with the treatment given back to me. I need not say more or ask for charity. #4 I will never sub a mix again. #5 This post will be the extent of how this mix is available. peace
