  1. @Flurry of Flames Indeed, I didn't have enough time to really work on it and get all my ideas into place. As for the plugins, it's quite a list. The strings and woodwinds are Rhapsody Orchestral Colors, while the percussion(including the glockenspiel and xylophone) is Rhapsody Orchestral Percussion. The horns are all from Bravura Scoring brass, and the piano is Pearl Grand Piano. All of those are from Impact Soundworks. The solo trumpet is Chapman Trumpet by Embertone, and the flute is Passion Flute by Orange Tree Samples.
  2. I originally did this for a PRC compo and I've been touching it up a bit since then. It's still somewhat short and a bit on the conservative side, but I figured I'd drop it here. Comments and critique are welcome and appreciated.
  3. Having not heard the original version since you originally posted it it's hard to draw direct comparisons, but many of the prior issues still remain. I still believe it's far too long. Right now you're still recycling the same segments over and over with very little variation, outside of instrument swaps. The brief flute solo at 4:42 was a nice change, and following it up with those piano variations was great, but you quickly went back into the same cut-and-paste segments, just with different instruments. I don't have a ton of time to go over everything, but I'll outline a few specific points: The good: - A lot of the solo/variation/etc writing is pretty solid, even if it's not particularly complex. -While there aren't a lot of dynamic variances, the mixing itself isn't bad. -The intro is still really nice. It had a fair amount of build-up and left me wondering where you would go. The bad: -The length of the song does not match the amount of content. I'd again suggest severely cutting the length of the song and focusing on the arrangement. -A lot of the instrumentation is still very robotic. Some of it could be attributed to lower quality samples, or perhaps not using the samples correctly. For example, staccatos at 3:28. As they're taking over the lead, it feels kind of odd writing it like that. A more flowing sustained section might work better, especially if you happened to have a well-timed brass section swell up alongside it rather than simply chugging along with the backbeat. -The song still ends abruptly. Even a fade out would be preferable to that.
  4. PRC357 - The Remix Rangers (Power Rangers)

    No problem. I, too, have seen some "different" variations. Things like "Stay in that fire, lady, get your back torn"(Instead of "So dare violate and get your back torn", which is what it does say) or "So violate an express-mic wave" which doesn't even make any sense. The official lyrics - particularly the rap portions - are pretty hard to track down, but I got them as close as I could get.
  5. MnP 79: Megaman X5 - Zero Virus Stage

    Basically just this:
  6. Just a little something I'd originally put together for MNP79 and have been working on lately, though I'm unsure where I'll go with it from here. I intended for it to be a somewhat conservative reimagining of the theme - perhaps something closer to a movie trailer - rather than a full-fledged remix Enjoy!
  7. MnP 79: Megaman X5 - Zero Virus Stage

    I'm known to post here on occasion. The guitar was nothing special, it's just Shreddage 1 with a couple tweaked ReValver 4 amp modules and some EQing
  8. Just another cover of that song from Season 2, Episode 2. This started as sort of a joke for a Rick and Morty-loving roomie and only covered the first half(what was originally in the episode), but I ended up doing the whole thing for both fun and a bit of practice. It's a (mostly) instrumental cover, but I may get an actual vocalist to sing at some point. Feedback/Comments/Critique/Etc appreciated.
  9. Chrono Cross Remix Project - cover art in first post!

    @Chris ~ Amaterasu Yep, as prophetik mentioned I am, in fact, looking for a violinist to record a solo segment. If you're interested, drop me a PM.
  10. Chrono Cross Remix Project - cover art in first post!

    Still working on mine! I got a bit delayed by a sudden snowstorm(because Oregon never gets those) but I'm back home and back at work now.
  11. Yes. You have to have all of the parts present when you extract the rar.part1 file. Extracting rar.part1 will also extract rar.part2 and so forth along with it, so if you don't have all the parts you'll have incomplete files and such and it probably won't load properly.
  12. I was trying out a few different chord progressions. I ended up with a Bm, DM, Em9, F#m progression(throwing in some 7ths and 11ths later on for good measure) that I really liked, and this is what happened. It's a pretty simple song. Two different rhythm guitar parts with a lead, and sequenced bass guitar and drums. Feedback is welcome and appreciated!
