  1. Lufia: Of Gods and Men

    You know I wrote and finished my remix for this album? Cause I don't see my name and the track is up for grabs.
  2. @djpretzel @zircon @JJT Well shit. Thats sucks. I don't know what happened or what was said but for someone who has given a lot of time to this community and then be cutoff is rough. Hopefully bridges can mend in the future, but its nice that you guys want to keep this going. I also do hope that @OA @Sam Ascher-Weiss can get back on the project cause I was rather looking forward to their tracks. I appreciate Brandon and his hard work but lets move forward and see this through for the community. We're all welcome to release our music elsewhere but contributing together is what makes it special here.
  3. Seiken Densetsu 3 - 2020 here we come!

    Think of it as some tough love cause I do appreciate people like yourselves taking your personal time to make a project happen. It's just gotten to the point of being comical and I think anyone who has a mix on this can relate. Let's see this through guys.
  4. Seiken Densetsu 3 - 2020 here we come!

    This project has been finished for over 2 years. And we've just gotten to mastering? Is this going to come out this year or are we hoping for 2017 now? Def not going to hold a track for an album again.
  5. Paths Less Travelled: Terranigma **ON HIATUS**

    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 album but I may opt to have it released separately before as well. Let me know if you're interested.
  6. 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 strung together 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.
  7. Secret of Mana

    Wes, I have a confirmed collab with Jeff Ball (violin), Abi Coffer (flute/piccolo), Doug Perry (marimba) and Wilbert Roget (recorder) for "Little Sprite".
  8. 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.
  9. Current OCR Projects Situation: Analysis and Solutions

    SD3 is way older than 2008 just to chime in here.
  10. Secret of Mana

    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.
  11. 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 and claim it. Could also opt for @DrumUltimA to do some mallet/percussion and maybe @bustatunez for 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.
  12. Seiken Densetsu 3 - 2020 here we come!

    omg, is this actually coming out? i've been lurking for like 2 years since they said the music was finished.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. A Realm Reborn: Final Fantasy XIV Online

    there should be some kind of list of anyone from OCR thats playing the game. I'm on Ultros. Fei Figaro
  16. FFIV - Genesis of Destruction

    I remixed (in audio terms, not musical terms) this Final Fantasy IV project track. You can download here my updated version: http://www.mediafire.com/folder/ov0wbey0079rq/FFIV_-_Genesis_of_Destruction I would like Zircon's mix, that was released, taken down (torrent, html links, youtube). I always felt I did everyone that spent time on it a disservice for releasing it as it came out. It was just too much of a monster to tackle back then. Thank you Andrew, Justin, Connor, Lisa, Marcin, and everyone on the FFIV project.
  17. FFIV - Genesis of Destruction

    A fair and cool-headed response but those tomatoes were for me.
  18. FFIV - Genesis of Destruction

    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 .
  19. FFIV - Genesis of Destruction

    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.
  20. FFIV - Genesis of Destruction

    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
  21. FFIV - Genesis of Destruction

    I'm just asking for a favor and did so here because upon my requests I wasn't responded to before. I didn't realize I agreed for perpetual use. I believe I, as an artist, can ask for that, and I might even explore my rights to assert it. I allowed for a version of a song I worked on for many months to get released in a condition that I was coerced into. Even after all these years, listening back it's painful. The whole song leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth from the experience of how it was accepted despite my entire intention to have it be something so special and unique for the site. Sadly no one in the leadership really acknowledge the hard work and care that went into it. That's why I want it down. Because it reminds me of all that.
  22. FFIV - Genesis of Destruction

    I cringe when I hear the version that was released, Stevo. They've taken down other tracks in the past. Torrenting doesn't make sense these days with how fast Internett connections are. Just use a zip file. Which blows my mind that with all the work we did that we never took the extra step to do that. I'd like it taken down.. I don't want anyone listening to the old version. Please do this for me. I don't believe the agreement is perpetual and even if it is, can't OCR do me the courtesy for contributions over the years to respect my wishes? It's just a few links and a YouTube video. It takes little time and no one really cares.

  24. Breath of Fire 6 Announced

    Are those real translations?!?! Besides the name I see no hint of it looking like a Breath of Fire title. The forest graphic feels right but the characters look so generic. The detail is nice while generic looking but I would never think BoF without the title.
  25. So i got a ps3...what do i do with it?

    Brad, stick with Valkryia Chronicles. I felt similar in that I picked it up every so often for a long while in the beginning. But it does take off a little less than half way into it. Once it did for me, I couldn't put it down and the ending was superb.
