  1. might as well update this. i build computers for pretty cheap. i've sold systems to a lot of OCR folks (like, 40+ at this point). i do a lot with specialized hardware. i also charge next to nothing for my services - just 10% of the cost of the parts, plus 50$. this means that for a monster system with 1500$ of hardware under the hood - which might cost $3k or more at a boutique builder - only costs about 1700$ for me to select parts, build it, and test it. that's a killer deal. if you've got questions or just want a quote, please let me know. i have no problem just talking hardware with you if that's all you've got the time for. i don't charge for advice =) pretty much i just like playing with new hardware, and this gives me an opportunity to do that. i also usually have used parts for sale if you want to lower your price further. feel free to drop me a line to get some info about what i'm selling at any given time.
  2. Chrono Cross Remix Project - cover art in first post!

    proving that there's always room for good music, @Jorito has come through with a wip of a fun pop ballad of "Reminiscing ~ Uneraseable Memory"!
  3. edit: i've starting a chrono cross remix project. we still have room, but it's limited based on what track you're doing, how fast of a worker you are, and what style! please PM me for details. PROGRESS: 18/23 tracks finished! i've always wanted to get back to the game that got me into remixing, and for the past six months or so, i've found myself listening to this soundtrack again more heavily as i have gotten back into writing music again. mitsuda's work on this album is timeless - the unique sound he created for CC is so consistently represented in these tracks that it's always apparent when you hear a song from the soundtracks. notably, his use of the arpeggiated minor 9th chord comes back again and again and never fails to inspire and move me. similar to the Link's Awakening project i directed, i'm interested in using a defined genre element for this project. ideally i'm thinking 20-25 tracks on a total of two discs - half fast/intense and half slow/languid. genre ideas for the first one would be faster rock, edm, or even intense film-style classical. genre ideas for the second would be chillstep, solo piano, groove, etc. the CC soundtrack combines some really fun and funky upbeat tracks with elements of mixed meter and ethnic instrumentation with some incredibly beautiful, more relaxed tunes that thrive on realistic articulation and great performances of solo instrumentation. i want to reflect both aspects of the game as clearly as possible. note that i have no problem with the same tune being on both discs - i would love two versions of the same tune as long as they're heavily different and unique takes on the theme, one faster and one slower. also please note that i'm interested in sticking with an even number of tracks per disc - i'd like to not have 15 fast and 5 slow, for example, so when you note that you're interested in a track, please say which disc it might be on. since there's enough interest, i'll expand past 10 tracks/disc, but i still want to keep them roughly even. here's a tracklist. note that i've marked some songs as being repeats, arranged versions of the original, or just noise tracks - i've taken them out. 67 original tracks minus 12 repeats/arranges leaves us with 55 possible tracks. i'm leaving weirder or non-melodic ones like Grief and Fortress of Ancient Dragons on here because, honestly, i'd love to hear a remix of grief done well =) and now that Ophanin took it, you will! i'd encourage you to pick tracks that aren't super popular like Scars of Time and Frozen Flame, but of course would accept WiPs for those too. there's a lot of gems on this soundtrack that have never been remixed and i'd prefer to focus on them if possible. UPDATED: to reserve a track, contact me first! let me know what style you want to do and what track, and i'll let you know if it's something that should fit within my vision for the project. if i give you the go-ahead, a WiP or demo of what you want to do reserves it. all tracks are fair game until i've heard your vision realized. if i get a few of the same one, i'll determine which one we'll stick with. black is available, red is taken, green is done, gray is cut due to similarities with other tracks.

CC has some incredible visuals that would be great to capture. alternatively, some screenshots from the game would be cool too. i will look into a forum area we can work out of in order to be more organized, but ideally we'll use a private ocr forum section in terms of expectations, please note that while i don't expect you to burn out a track in two weeks, i will not accept extended absences without you at least telling me what's going on. my goal for every project i work on is to discharge my obligations as quickly as possible, and i will expect that you're actively working on your track to get it completed within a reasonable amount of time. i personally have no issue filling in gaps where they appear so i can always pick up the slack where it appears. i've got two small children and limited time to work on music, but i'll make sure to do my best to be just as prompt and active in managing this as i am expecting you as a remixer to be in your writing. let's work together and create something really special. remix list (subject to change): disc 1: FROZEN (slow) 1.

  4. Chrono Cross Remix Project - cover art in first post!

    quick update - our cover art is done! and in the first post to get you excited =) shaun's track is nearing completion. heard another wip last night and it's a great chilled-out track with fun vocals layered in. i talked to blind a few weeks ago and he's chugging along. the collab on Distant Promise is almost there - just waiting for the singer's audio guy to send me a better render of the vocals, and we'll be off to the races there. lastly, wiesty and company are almost done with their jazzy mega-collab as well. we're so close! just gotta finish off a few more tracks =)
  5. Focusrite/Audacity/3rd Mic

    are you sure you've set audacity to have the right number of channels? i'm assuming you'd have either 3 in mono or 6 in stereo. it's in the first or second settings tab, i forget which.
  6. Sale/Want 3.0

    3DS sold, so next is my mandolin and some gaming stuff. you pay shipping. my mandolin is a vintage a-type Kay mandolin, manufactured in the 70s (probably?). it comes with a pick holder, a simple case, and some picks and strings. my daughter is big enough to reach it on the wall now so i need to move it (don't have space for storage). also, i suck at fingers are too big =) additionally, i'm selling both my thrustmaster t-flight hotas x joystick and my elite: dangerous horizons account. i got both to play elite but it never clicked with me, so i'm interested in moving both. the joystick sells for 55$ or more on amazon, and the game is usually on sale for about 40$ with the season pass (which is included in the account). i'll take 40$ and 35$ respectively, or 60$ for both. the joystick has maybe 10 hours of use on it, if that.
  7. Sale/Want 3.0

    and...thank you, bahamut! if you want to buy something, pm the seller. if you want something or are selling something, post in this thread.
  8. Sale/Want 3.0

    reducing it to 105$, and including the charger and 128gb SD at this point. just want it gone. edit - sold.
  9. title says it all. where do you get your used music software from? alternatively, where does everyone go for deals on music software? i use amazon for the big stuff but there's gotta be more sales out there that i'm missing, and smaller distributors don't really update their prices there often.
  10. Chrono Cross Remix Project - cover art in first post!

    @Steven Melin comes through with an incredibly beautiful arrangement of one of my favorite OST tracks of all time, Dimensional Breach! it's done so i'm marking it as such. edit: that puts us at 18/23 tracks! we're doing well. waiting on avaris, blind, wiesty and company, chris (for the instrumental version of Radical Dreamers), and the singer for my distant promise collab =)
  11. i owned alessandro labs/grado's music series two for several years and found them to be great, personally. they're not the most comfortable though.
  12. A thank you to the community

    sure, we don't have unmod's gleeful mix of smut, abuse, and humor anymore, but the site's community is still active. just more on Discord is all.
  13. bumping this up. still providing this service, and i'll overclock your system for free if you get a build from me before thanksgiving =D
  14. was this not a good answer? if so, have you tried resetting to factory?
  15. Sale/Want 3.0

    i have a New Nintendo 3DS XL running the homebrew version of the 11.6 firmware for sale if anyone wants it. it has a 128gb SD card that i can include if you want it, else i'll just swap in the 4gb that it came with. i'll include the charger i bought (separately, they don't come with one) as well. 125$ plus shipping gets it.
  16. Upcoming Final Fantasy player - what game should I play first?

    tactics is probably my favorite, personally, especially the war of the lions remake. it's arguably one of the best mobile tactics games you can play.
  17. Chrono Cross Remix Project - cover art in first post!

    i've continued to get great updates to artwork from the folks handling the art for the project. both the primary and secondary album art is progressing nicely, and the back cover art and some great site art is done. we're getting there!
  18. Upcoming Final Fantasy player - what game should I play first?

    CT is a top 3 game on most lists all time. if you've not played it, definitely give it a shot.
  19. Upcoming Final Fantasy player - what game should I play first?

    chrono cross is great! =) i hear the music is pretty good. each FF game has positives and negatives, in my mind. it's worth noting that FF4 - especially the updated versions available on modern handhelds - is an excellent game as well, and shouldn't be overlooked. but this is about the 3d games. 7's graphics are pretty poor nowadays compared to any of the other games, but the story is still solid enough and the gameplay isn't as dated as you'd think. the places in the world are well realized as well which is fun, and the music is iconic. i haven't played 8 since high school, but i remember the story being more disjointed. the gameplay was interesting enough and it was fun exploring for magic to draw, and there are some really timeless themes in that game as well. i also haven't played 9 in 10+ years but i remember the characters being fun and the art style being fairly unique among the more modern FF games. i didn't enjoy it as much because i preferred the more serious settings of 7 and 8 over the more extreme fantasy bent of 9. among the PS2 games, X is one of my favorites, and if you can play the PS3 or PS4 remakes it's worth it. the story's pretty solid (only a few leaps of faith needed) and i liked the characters. the addition of voice acting is nice too although it's pretty stilted...if you don't mind listening in japanese and reading subtitles it's better. i really enjoy the battle system and progression system in X as well, and the crossover island/steampunk setting is pretty well done. i enjoyed X-2 more than most - it's definitely more cutesy/fanservice than it is a 'real' FF game, but the dresssphere/battle system is pretty decent (13-2 lite, kinda) and there's some replayability if you like it. XII is a great break from tradition in that the art and style of the game is similar to the older games, but it feels like an MMO in how you roam the world. it's too short, vaan clearly wasn't supposed to be the main character, and the story kinda goes to pieces in the second half, but i enjoyed the gambit system and the characters that aren't 12 years old. if you get a chance to play the newer games, XIII and 13-2 are definitely not as bad as reviews say. XIII holds your hand for way too long (they don't really take the shackles off the battle system until almost 25hrs into the game), but 13-2's battle system, monster catching, and progression are all fun, and seeing the world in different forms depending on timelines is fun as well. i really enjoyed 13-2's battle system, enough that i would consider it to be one of my favorites in the series. if i had to rank 7 through XII, i'd say that i found 7 and X to be in the top tier, 8 and XII in the upper middle tier, and 9 and X-2 in the lower middle tier. i definitely don't think any of them are bad, they all have very specific things that are really awesome about them. i just preferred the gameplay and characters of 7 and X the most. edit: derp, you wanted to know where to start. if you've already seen 7 and 9, IMO X was my next favorite game, so i'd start there, or else maybe go for 8 and complete the PS1 trifecta before moving onto PS2. don't start on X-2 as there's a lot of assumed knowledge of X in the game and some spoilers.
  20. How to set up video chats?

    for future reference.
  21. Chrono Cross Remix Project - cover art in first post!

    thanks to a chippy wav from hylian lemon and a slick arrangement of home guldove from OCU, we're down to four tracks left! progressing nicely =)
  22. Chrono Cross Remix Project - cover art in first post!

    i've gotten eino's excellently updated wav and also added two of my own, bringing our total finished tracklisting to 15 of 21! we are doing great =D
  23. Chrono Cross Remix Project - cover art in first post!

    some updates: artwork is coming along well. i have four artists that i recruited from DeviantArt working on cover art, inside label art, some art for the website, and the two back labels (one for each disc). i still need someone to do the disc art, but the idea i have is fairly simple and i'll likely ask whomever finishes first if they're interested in realizing it. i have demos for three of these and finished for two more, and everyone's been in contact with me with updated WiPs in the last month or so. i have parts out to @Cyril the Wolf for distant promise/garden of gods. once i get his recorded parts, i'll have our singer record, and then we'll be onto final arrangement tweaks and mastering. we've spent some serious time getting the lyrics just right for this one, so i'm excited about how it will turn out. i have vocal parts for radical dreamers from @DragonAvenger and i'm just doing the final tweaks there. i think this one will be buttoned up within the week. the death volcano track is almost there - one more slight adjustment to balances and i think it's done. i've had recent updates on the remaining four of five tracks that are active right now, so we're still on track for having most of the audio done by the end of october. thanks to everyone's hard work! we're on the home stretch right now so i'm excited to power through and finish up the project in under a year since this was started.
  24. Chrono Cross Remix Project - cover art in first post!

    artwork is coming along. i have also been progressing on my garden of gods/distant promise collab with @Cyril the Wolf and another, and we've got the structure down to the point where the basic background is with cyril to get some guitars recorded. we still have some great tracks! i'd love to see Dimensional Breach covered before we release =)
  25. using tags to look for remixes

    i might be ignorant, but - is it possible to use the tags under remix details to look for remixes in specific styles or with specific tags? i don't see any use of those right now. for example, the first remix in the list has this for tags: Genre: Cinematic Mood: Dark, Quirky Instrumentation: Bells, Brass, Choir, Orchestral, Organ Additional: Usage > Halloween how can i search for quirky, or halloween, or cinematic?
