  1. Clicking that link (poll) gives me a "site can't be reached". Naturally, really bummed to hear it came to this. Brandon was one of the few people who instantly gave me his approval&trust when I first auditioned to him a long time ago, and he was always proactive, inviting me on projects and trusting me with key songs... Now I can't rely on that anymore, gotta try and get posted at long last lol. What will become of the FF3 project? I've been involved with it quite a lot, with 2 key songs to my name, would be a real shame to see it cancelled.
  2. If it could, should OCR start compensating their staff?

    I believe Neblix's point was to simply assume there was enough income to compensate the staff, and play around with that idea. Personally, I think it'd be a completely justifiable course of action and pave the way for an expanded infrastructure&community. If only it were that simple in practice...
  3. Overwatch

    Get it? Personally, I've not had much problems with enemy torbs, but I sure like to wreck disorganized attack teams with him. But every once in a while the enemy team actually knows how to completely counter the turrets (I don't think it's as hard as some people here feel) and when that happens, good ol' torbs isn't good for shit.
  4. finished Castlevania - Vampire Killer(80s remix)

    Please tell me you kept the new elements from v3 in the submitted version? It kicked some serious ass. I just forgot to comment on it but better late than never.
  5. Thanks for the compliment, it means a lot to me as the only non-posted remixer on the album. I hope the last section was positively interesting! Its inclusion was more of a passion thing for me, an attempt at making the song more memorable&unique... I've found that some of my favorite remixes(jade catacombs, the quick and the blue.. off the top of my head) incorporate totally unexpected&original sections in addition to rearranged source material so my best hope is that at least some people might enjoy my song in a similar vein. Here's hoping that ocr still accepts songs like that, and it isn't keeping my mix from getting posted.
  6. finished Castlevania - Vampire Killer(80s remix)

    Yea I figured right off the bat you weren't trying to make it sound like it was made in the 80's, just imitate the style&analog sound. And it works =) This track is just great fun. I first listened to it with a bad pair of headphones so the song felt a little flat, hence the unnecessary comment about dynamics... The new version sounds really really good, you took it in exactly the right direction with added warmth and the samples sat better in the background. The evil chortle that closes the song out is awesome and embodies the wacky spirit of the song nicely. Take it to mastering and... maybe submit? The production is solid as hell so no problem there but I'm not sure whether the old geezers of the panel have gripes with overt sound effect sampling.
  7. finished Castlevania - Vampire Killer(80s remix)

    You had me with the cowbell lol =D A bit too much sampling going on for my tastes but otherwise I enjoyed the warm electronic soundscape that clearly harks back to 80's analog gear, but still comes across as modern so if you were going for more authenticity, you might need to de-modernize it a bit. Not that it's needed though, the song's pretty charming as is, even if it doesn't have huge amounts of dynamics. ps. are you actually the mastermind behind ayssntittays? that video is a work of genius.
  8. Oh dear. The old, more-WiP-than-finished version of my song is so weak sauce in the trailer =D But what a privilege to have been a part of such an epic lineup of remixers. I'm like, a snot-faced greenhorn compared to these guys whose remixes I've been listening to since like 2007. Gotta do a review of the whole album soon but it'd be kinda weird to be the first one to do so as an artist
  9. Final Fantasy V: The Fabled Warriors

    Appreciate the vote of confidence, Mirbs! If you liked this one, I don't think you'll be disappointed with Bard's theme - I'll make sure to work hard at it.
  10. Argh, ain't no stopping it... One does not simply not take part in an OCR Final Fantasy project. Brandon baby, would you mind letting me jazz with Breezy?
  11. Final Fantasy V: The Fabled Warriors

    WOT!! So is this, like, actually gonna happen now? Pretty sweet timing, I gotta say. I'm right in the middle of my second playthrough of FFV. So what's the game plan for Fire, Darke? Start with a clean slate or will you be getting back to some people who might have had.. something to do with it
  12. A quick look at the headline and here I thought we were about to have one of those pseudointellectual discussions about quantum physics... Oh well. At least you got my attention!
  13. Final Fantasy VII is being remade for PS4

    It's not that the age of putting effort into your game has passed, it's just that the developers realized they can sell each of those discs separately

    Way to make them doing away with tb combat feel even worse than it did Way to make me hate everything
  15. OCR02041 - Mega Man 2 'Coiled Copper Wire'

    This one truly stands out in the vast sea of Metalman remixes, and is one of the songs that got me interested in remixing. Major props to Stevo for making my favorite acoustic guitar only- remix on OCR, which is saying a lot on a site like this. First, I must commend the production side of things - the overall quality is great and the guitars have a lovely mellow&warm sound that make this song truly unique. It works so well. Usually acoustic guitars are made to sound so sleek and bright, but this song is a fine example of giving it all a personal feel with some careful mixing and mastering. And what brings it all together, the superb arrangement, ranging from tender to upbeat and brings out the best of the legendary source melody. The backing guitars are perfectly executed and gel so well together, especially in the ballad-y first half. Such a great remix that continues to inspire me.
