  1. I'm not familiar with the sources but that kicked ***. Great punk/pop song and great vocal performance.
  2. MnP 83: Yoshi's Island - Mini Boss theme

    Quick review. Shido - Starts out silly and fun, although the detuning somewhat overstays its welcome. Then you take it in this awesome new direction. However the detuning reappears along with some dissonant chords, IMO to the track's detriment. Silverpool - Appropriate track title I'm not familiar enough with the source to tell if you added anything bit it sounds alright. Would have liked to hear the lead synths sound a little deeper and more pleasing to the ear though. hoboka - Liked the parts you added. Would have liked a little more of that. The tempo shifts were a good idea too but I think you took them a little too far. Nevertheless this stands out to me as the best of the three tracks.
  3. MnP 83: Yoshi's Island - Mini Boss theme

    That midi file would have been a bear to work with. I took one look at it and said noooope. Gonna listen to the submissions now.
  4. Upcoming Final Fantasy player - what game should I play first?

    4 is my favorite. I played it as a kid and it completely blew me away at the time. It's probably partly my nostalgia talking but I still think it's great.
  5. PRC361 - It's A Me To End This Game (Mario Bros 2)

    Because you won last time!
  6. PRC361 - It's A Me To End This Game (Mario Bros 2)

    Nice amount of participation this time! Looking forward to listening.
  7. MnP 83: Yoshi's Island - Mini Boss theme

    Not me this time. Don't have time.
  8. Cool arrangement. Drums sound too stiff and mechanical. The drum pattern in the first part of the song feels quite unnatural to me. Mix sounds a bit off to me. (I'm not a great mixer but I can tell when something's not right even though I might not be able to fix it or say exactly what it is.) It feels like the guitar parts don't sound crisp enough.
  9. Not cool bro panel.

    Speaking as a complete outsider (I have never submitted anything), that thread is the only window into the judging process and workflow that I'm aware of, and reading in that thread that one piece from 2015 and a number from 2016 haven't been evaluated yet is extremely disheartening when I think about considering a submission. I'm very happy to hear from Gario that that thread is not an accurate representation of the actual situation and that the backlog has and is being dealt with in a timely fashion.
  10. PRC360 - Questioning the Quest Mode

    Did anyone listen to it? Hah. I wouldn't mind some feedback. I know the first 12 seconds or so wasn't mixed too well, but other than that I'm not sure exactly what to focus on to improve.
  11. Not currently. I'm a past sufferer, and hopefully never again. Thanks though
  12. Sorry to hear that, man. Depression suuuuucks
  13. Yeah, I think you're getting caught up too much in the midi that's already there. Next time try writing your remix note-by-note starting with an empty session, using the midi only as a reference in a separate window. That might help open up the possibilities for you.
  14. I'm not going to be able to participate in this one. Spent all my time on PRC this time. Hah.
  15. PRC360 - Questioning the Quest Mode

    Oooh, I've got an idea for this. Gonna try to track it tomorrow to see if it works. Edit: Submitted! I mixed and mastered the thing in one day so maybe it could still use some work. I'll see if I have time to come back to it before the round closes.
