  1. 1. work-in-progress

    Thanks Vidilian. I've worked on this some more and am actually pretty happy with how it's coming along. I'm still not 100% on the introduction of the vocals at 2:36 -- after I first recorded them they struck me as sort of jarring and unexpected -- but I've become so accustomed to them that I can't really accurately judge anymore. I'm pretty happy with the rest of it though. I think I'll give it one or two more passes before calling it finished but I'd love to hear some more opinions on what might be improved before I do. The new version can be heard here:
  2. Hey OCR, long time no see. I've been sitting on this track for years because it's given me nothing but trouble. But I came back to it a few weeks ago and I think it's at the point where I need some feedback before I can finish it up. v1: v2: All comments are appreciated but I'd particularly like some feedback on the following: 1. Timing - are there any timing issues you notice? Do they bother you? 2. The beginning section, particularly at 1:03 - Thoughts on the transition? 3. Organ - How does it sit in the mix? 4. Whispered vocals - what do you think of the processing on these? 5. Vocals at 2:36 - do they stick out badly or are they fine? Thanks for listening and for any feedback you can provide! (Source): Edit: Oh yeah, there are a few chords from Lavos' theme in there as well :).
  3. *Waves hand* Sorry I haven't been able to contribute to the Dracula bracket. Honestly it was kind of a relief to get knocked out because I've been struggling with school enough as it is. Too bad everyone else seems to have had similar problems...
  4. I really like your arrangement of the other two sources though. Especially the way you treated the piano part from Inner Quarters -- I have not been able to integrate it that cleanly into my mixes!
  5. I sent mine in a few days ago, just want to make sure that's the one you've got?
  6. I don't know how they could be made any clearer though. The format is literally spelled out in the first post.
  7. Oh well, mistakes happen. It's unfortunate but nothing to feel bad about!
  8. Chernabogue, likewise :P. I'm happy with the result though. Looking forward to hearing your mix!
  9. Yay! Mixing is on hold for me until a new set of guitar strings arrive since I didn't think to check that I had any ahead of time and none of the stores in my area sell ones that are heavy enough XD.
  10. Hope you can get that fixed. Dead batteries are the worst.
  11. Ah, that was the problem. Thanks!
  12. Chernabogue, I keep thinking your source is about to turn into Dr. Wily Stage every time it gets to that fast part :P. This is a going to be a weird mashup XD. Edit: Also those signatures are great, but I can't figure out how to use mine...
  13. Alright I'll throw in a last minute sign-up. My picks: 1. Inner Quarters 2. Jaws of a Scorched Earth 3. Highest Castle Floor Never played a Castlevania game before but I think all of those are eligible.
  14. Requesting a name change from Kuolema to Magnetic Ether. Thanks in advance :).
  15. On the old forums I used the default thread setting of newest post first, but I can't find a way to change back to this. Is it possible to do so? Otherwise this is looking really good!
