  1. Sad news everyone, it seems like Zyko's claim is a little bit more unstable than I thought, not sure if we'll ever see a finished song from him that is good I still have pretty high hopes for it though. On the good news side, a new WAV from Jorito for the airship theme. Really creative and interesting arrangement.
  2. You should apply for a job at the FBI
  3. Haha, those are nice similarities. I actually asked Jeremy Soule about if he was involved in that FFXV thing. He said he wasn't involved but that "it could be a case of subconscious parallelism " More like subconscious PARA-THIEVERY!
  4. Thanks Jorito. I think I need to check my subscription settings cause I missed your note. I'll check it fairly soonish when I don't feel sick and it's bed time. But I just wanted to stop in to say, something really special happened. A brand new friend on Facebook just happened to post a link to her arrangement of Elia's Theme... It wasn't a claim, and she didn't know about the project at all, but now I have a brand new WAV in my hands of this really key track... very, very special sequence of events. Of course RiverSound's version -- if it ever exists -- is also going to be really really good. His other mix just blows my mind. But I am a lot less stressed right now knowing that we finally have coverage for this song, and a beautiful orchestral version at that. It even ends with a quick flourish of Lute of Noah which we also didn't have covered yet, but @zykO might be thinking of tackling it sometime. OA's song got NO'd but he sent me a new version. It doesn't address all their crits, but it drastically changes the vibe of the song in a good way. Apart from that stuff... I'm passing out, and the thought of all the updates I need to give or check up on is making me feel sicker than I already do. So for now.. huge thanks to everyone working so hard on their songs... we're almost there
  5. I actually would like to know what Soule thinks of this, and whether he had any involvement in creating this theme. It hasn't been public yet, none of the OST details are, so while it's really unlikely I guess it'd be possible that he's involved.
  6. I'm reviving this thread rather than making a new thread. Listen to this... something sound familiar? (0;27) It's been weird that I've known about this theme for a long time, and I've never seen anyone talk about this. (hint: it's fucking elder scrolls haha) Of course this isn't the most iconic theme from FFXV, Somnus probably is, or "Gratia Mundi" (probably not real title) from the Episode Duscae / various, multiple several trailers. But I'd easily put this theme in the top 3 of recognizable themes from FFXV despite it being from... an existing series, but with a few notes changed. Thoughts? For anyone confused about what an "Elder Scroll" is, here's the song I'm talking about:
  7. Everything we are, all we can become (the potential of our race) Everything we are, all that we were (just a disgrace) Gone There's no way out You can't abandon the crowd (All that we know, all that we are) Everything's changing now (All that we know, all that we are) Everything's changing now, everything's changing now (All that we know, all that we are) It's not worth anything (All that we know, all that we are) It's not worth anything (Nothing) I set my sail (Nothing) Fly the wind it will take me (Nothing) Back to my home (Nothing) Sweet home (Nothing) Lie on my back (Nothing) Clouds are making way for me (Nothing) I'm coming home (Nothing) Sweet home I blame you (All that we know) I blame you (All that we are) There's nothing left for us, we better just go away I blame you (All that we know) I blame you (All that we are) There's nothing left for us, we better just go away I blame you now I blame you, I blame you, I blame you Gone
  8. I don't remember doing it or them asking, but it's been so long, and I tend to forget a lot of stuff. So it was totally surprising to see them on there. I was a really good looking baby. Even when I was crying my head off, which is 1 of the pictures.
  9. Wow, my baby pictures are all over that artwork too And it's cool because those 3 pictures were some of the only pictures I have of me as a baby, unfortunately. I think there's 1 other in a frame at my parents' house. I guess my folks weren't too big on saving baby pics. The song I actually made for this album got cut for being too dark around 2014, and I got too bummed to ever finish it, but maybe someday. Glad to have donated Rabbit to the album though and it fit.
  10. Pretty excited for this As an aside Mr. Dude, I sent your BioShock Cohen chiptune to a friend (from your 3 week old youtube upload) because we were talking about the upcoming remaster. He said it was brilliant and outstandingly good, but you probably knew that already.
  11. Oh cool, you guys are doing this again? I may have to turn in a traditional Christmas song at some point.
  12. I wouldn't just trust Valve like that. Gabe is a petulant dude with a short temper, and Valve has some of the worst customer support of any gaming company. So if you do get screwed by them, you're going to get screwed hard. I wouldn't worry about putting mixes on youtube though. Everybody does it. Just don't be trying to sell your remix as a product unless you get it licensed.
  13. Any way you want it, that's the way I need it! Any way you want it. I can mix/master your song, or you could send it mixed/mastered. You've passed that there panel before so you probably have a handle on it.
  14. Edited the thread to reflect current info. Very excited for this game - coming Early 2017!

    This is my favorite anti-OCR fan arrangement! I always come back to it and it was the first thing I thought of.
