  1. Pretty good. I like the little sound effects in the background. Sounds like some water in a creek or river, maybe some birds chirping (?), and that distinctive "heh!" from OoT. This stuff, even faintly in the background, really adds to the environment of a remix. And while you're right that the original source doesn't have that much to it, it's still a really good theme, so you can be forgiven for using it that many times. The variation in the middle works great. Also, "A Forgotten Lullaby" and "Take Flight" kick ass.
  2. 0:20 to 0:49 is light and bouncy and makes me want to watch a movie where everyone in Pallet Town is dancing to it, ala a big musical production. But at 0:50, it turns moody and gets kind of creepy. This tonal shift is really weird to me, as it's such a huge change from the first part. I think that from 1:08 and on, you're going for a more traditional orchestral feeling, with a big, sweeping buildup... and then it doesn't happen. by 2:07, it's back to being light and bouncy again. The big swell at 2:31 feels kind of weak. Those kettle drums could be a bit stronger. Make them heavier, like you're really building into it. I don't hate it, I think you got some good stuff here. And I do like the fact that someone is actually using this source (hardly anyone ever does the Oak theme... in fact, this might be the first one I have come across in years), so you got that going for you. It's just a couple of minor tonal issues that don't seem to connect with each other quiet right. Version 3 soon?
  3. https://labo.nintendo.com/ It's kind of like how, when I was a little kid, my mom taught me how to use a hot glue gun. I used old show boxes and popsicle sticks to make forts and shit for my toys. but, you know, without a Switch and for about $US 70 more than I ever did. Though, that robot suit one is pretty cool. It's a super cheap VR solution for wanting to punch things with a giant robot. EDIT: It seems to be pronounced Lab-oh. Labo.
  4. The violins at the start are a bit sharp and harsh. maybe tone those a bit. The style of flaminco/tango is really good. It just works. Looking forward to a more polished and refined version later!
  5. It's pretty ruff (ohnohedidn'tyeshedid) but it's an interesting combo of sources. Version 2 any time soon?
  6. I'm a massive Link's Awakening fan. Have been since I got the original back in 1993 for christmas. I love this remix. The in-game sound effects are a good inclusion, to really cement the original 8-bit sound. That works. I hear cuucos, the seagulls, picking up hearts, falling down a hole, even the dash sound from using the Pegesus Boots. Lots of detail to the game sounds in there.This really works great. There is a minor issue with the name, though. You see, you have the Ghost House theme as the source. But it's really just the Mabe Village theme, slowed down and sadder. This remix is upbeat, bouncy and happy, like the Mabe theme. I like the surf sound effect you used to tie it to the beach that the Ghost House sits upon, but again, this is too upbeat and happy to be the place where you take a wandering spirit for one last look at it's old home. From 0:00 to 0:30, it's a perfect start that long-time players can identify as the Ghost House. But from 0:31 to 1:02, it starts to sound more like the everyday life stuff you can connect with Mabe Village more than the Ghost House. After 1:32 is so much more fitting with Mabe, that it stops being even remotely connected to the shore. But then it softens and slows down at 2:03 to 2:28, it's back up to being closer to the Ghost House again. 2:43 to 3:53, it full-on small-town life again. 3:54 to the end, it's sadder, slower, more peaceful, reflecting the Ghost House theme again. I suggest putting both sources in for the title. I know it's entirely a pedantic thing, and it has nothing to do with the actual quality o the remix (which is pretty damn good), but it makes a bit more sense. You get two really good sources for one, it connects better, etc. Again, awesome remix. Love it.
  7. I vaguely recall a super-early version of this from the old project forums. God, was it that long ago? It's been a long time time since the album came out, and I always wished we could have had even more music on it. But it's nice to have a really good pokémon remix every so often. And this one will do nicely.
  8. Disney In Talks To Buy Most of Fox

    I'd rather see Disney make a good Fantastic Four movie. I mean, there are four of them, and not a single one is any good.
  9. Yet another headphone suggestion request

    I have a 20ish year old pair of Sennheiser headphones. They still work perfectly fine and have some of the best sound quality I've ever experienced. Sennheiser is definitely recommended.
  10. Part of me is flattered. Another part of me is worried that you guys know something I don't. I don't usually go for the big metal-style stuff, but this was pretty cool.
  11. Nintendo Switch

    Anyone else hoping Nintendo starts selling the Switch without the dock? The price of the dock itself is about $90 US (kind of expensive, when you see what's inside and how much empty space there is https://youtu.be/LxUuDh5dOus?t=1m5s ). It would be cheaper, and considering that here in Canada, a Switch retails for $400, that would help a lot. Now, if they could just make the games cheaper here...
  12. Winamp

    Awesome jokes, they're just so awesome that no one gets them.
  13. Ninendo is launching an mini-SNES

    Kind of hoping they might make a GameBoy one now. I'd take something with the old colors, but thinner and lighter. Color screen, of course, so you can have both GB and GBC games on it. Put about 30 games, with local wireless, and slap a $70 price tag on it. Sold.
  14. Winamp

    I will have to put it somewhere for you to get. Unless we're allowed to post it on here? I don't think there's any legal reason I couldn't, as it was freely distributed software before it was shut down. If a mod is willing to chime in on that for clarification, that would be handy. EDIT: or just use this link, it's the same as I have. Other than that, did you want a save0001.sav file for something I don't know what it is? Or a si_hw_cataclysm_update_en_101.exe? Perhaps I can interest you in a 99205825234n.pdf?
  15. Winamp

    I got a install for version 5.581, if you want. I think that was the last version before it was shelved.
