  1. 1. work-in-progress Magus Confronted - Stoner/Doom Metal

    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: https://app.box.com/s/qvzh9ji0k7uvyj68qhnjrww9h4dnqhj3
  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: https://app.box.com/s/38r28rpqu91k96117s8d6ztwx829fyci v2: https://app.box.com/s/qvzh9ji0k7uvyj68qhnjrww9h4dnqhj3 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!

    *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. Castlevania: Cacophony of Incarnation 2016

    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. Castlevania: Cacophony of Incarnation 2016

    I sent mine in a few days ago, just want to make sure that's the one you've got?
  6. Castlevania: Cacophony of Incarnation 2016

    I don't know how they could be made any clearer though. The format is literally spelled out in the first post.
  7. Castlevania: Cacophony of Incarnation 2016

    Oh well, mistakes happen. It's unfortunate but nothing to feel bad about!
  8. Castlevania: Cacophony of Incarnation 2016

    Chernabogue, likewise :P. I'm happy with the result though. Looking forward to hearing your mix!
  9. Castlevania: Cacophony of Incarnation 2016

    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. Castlevania: Cacophony of Incarnation 2016

    Hope you can get that fixed. Dead batteries are the worst.
  11. Castlevania: Cacophony of Incarnation 2016

    Ah, that was the problem. Thanks!
  12. Castlevania: Cacophony of Incarnation 2016

    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. Castlevania: Cacophony of Incarnation 2016

    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.

    Requesting a name change from Kuolema to Magnetic Ether. Thanks in advance :).
  15. Welcome to the New Forums!

    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!
