    1. Not Interested or Available
  1. Sorry for messaging you my picks rather than posting them here. I still want to join the competition when you have enough competitors. For my pieces/characters, I choose the following. 1. The Creature - "Den of Worship" 2. Nathan Graves - "Awake" 3. Carmilla - "Repose of Souls" Please check for midi's of those pieces and sign me up. Have a nice day.
  2. I decided to sign up for this competition (I sent MindWanderer the message). I did well in that RPG Heroes vs. Villains competition last year (I was runner up). Anyway sorry recruiting isn't going well.
  3. Nice find, man. I really enjoyed it but had trouble making out "Birth of a God" (maybe it was a little subtle compared to "One Winged Angel" and especially "Let the Battle Begin"). I was hoping someone would primarily remix and harmonize "Birth of a God" and "One Winged Angel" (Why hasn't anyone here done that). This should suffice for now and was definitely cool.
  4. I re-listened to the piece after the eval and have a few criticisms I didn't notice at first. First that shrill cat-like string (I think) synth that appears often after the first minute has got to go (it clashes with the melody and has no place in a Pluto theme). I can't see any problems with 0:50 but 1:02 definitely has some harmonic clashing going on. I still like this mix but sampling Square isn't allowed sadly. Sorry if I sound harsh but it's still pretty good.
  5. I think this remix fits Albert Wesker very well and was done well too. I really enjoyed the games and especially the movies. You did the character a great service.
  6. A little loud in ways but definitely tasty. This is a great remix of a good Pokemon tune and has plenty of grit and DnB flavor. I can just picture Yveltal attacking to this. Good job.
  7. As many know, I love Kingdom Hearts and it's one of my biggest influences. I'm always all for KH remixes (there's surprisingly few of them on this site but the series has mostly great music) and am working on one myself (a Christmas remix of "Riku" theme). That being said, I thought this was pretty good and fits Pluto very well. It's mellow (the same could be said of the original theme though) and a little playful in tone. I like it and think it's interpretive enough but you may want a third non-biased (because Kingdom Hearts and its music are my favorite) opinion.
  8. Rozo's pretty much right here. It's a great electronic adaptation of the Zelda track. I can hear the original enough to call it a remix but it's different enough to stand on its own. Good job.
  9. I decided to put a remix for this album like last year. I chose "Riku" theme (Kingdom Hearts 2) to remix into a Christmas style (unusual choice but may make sense to KH fans). Here's my basic demo for the track. Originally track is darker and can be found here
  10. First of all I love Kingdom Hearts as a whole (in fact it's one of my main inspirations) and KH2 is one of my favorite games. Naturally I came to this thread and decided to listen to your remix. The positives include; high quality samples, a good melody (it's KH/Yoko Shimomura, of course it's good), minimal (if any) mixing problems, an interesting concept, and using an underrated track. Sadly the main problem with this remix is that it's far too repetitive, even for me (that's one of my main problems musically), and doesn't progress much at all. As far as I can tell, the piece does the same thing over and over for 3 minutes with barely any variation. Maybe you could mix second piece in there or write some original material for variety. I'm sorry if I sound mean but I'm just being honest and the judges probably would say the same thing (if not more criticisms). I wish there were more people on here who remix Kingdom Hearts music ...
  11. I think I'm going to make a remix for this one too. I've already got a piece picked out and can probably add some Christmas spirit to it.
  12. I'm an anime fan and I agree that this remix is very chill and relaxing. Considering the battle it played in was epic and intense, this is a very big contrast and succeeds in its goal. I love the part of that fight where LordGenome pulls a Senator Armstrong (Metal Gear Rising) and proves to be stronger than his mech.
  13. I'd say being fast paced is a definitive trait of Sonic music regardless of era (it fits because Sonic himself is super-fast). The different eras each have different styles and most the soundtracks are great (to say the least). My personal favorite Sonic song is "With Me" but that's another can of worms (best Sonic song is a long and heated debate that I don't want to start).
  14. I've been thinking about Bizarro Sephiroth being a bonus boss in Kingdom Hearts 3. I think the best theme for that fight would be "Birth of a God" (Final Fantasy VII) and "One Winged Angel" combined in harmony. Is anyone up to the task (I don't care what style it's in as long as the two are mixed in harmony)? If nobody wants to do it, I'll try doing it myself. Original version of "Birth of a God". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJXlOVw-TAs Kingdom Hearts version of "One Winged Angel". I love the shortened arrangement of this version. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hjS689rvbOw
  15. I don't expect to win (I always get last place in these type of contests) but that doesn't mean I didn't work hard on this. I wrote original parts to go with the original theme. There's plenty of interesting drums and an original bassline (though you might have trouble noticing it). I also went for a passive aggressive feel due to the difficulty/infamy of the Turbo Tunnel. Hope someone enjoys it and that everyone has a nice day. If I win I want a hybrid of "One Winged Angel" (Final Fantasy 7) and primarily "Birth of a God" (Final Fantasy 7). I like to think of what a theme for Bizarro Sephiroth and/or Safer Sephiroth in Kingdom Hearts 3 (I imagine it to be a mix between the two pieces). Nobody's mixed these two sources in counterpoint yet. If I don't win, I'm probably going to try that remix anyway ...
