  1. Hi! This is my first remix! I picked Volley Fire because I thought no one else would have made one (I was wrong) and I would therefore be free from judgement of my ability (hopefully not wrong) First I have to apologize for a couple things. 1. I'm using Finale, which is for writing music, not producing it. Therefore the instruments sound bad, particularly the guitar. 2. Finale is being a trash fire to me so I can't properly export it so the quality of sound is really bad. 3. It probably could have used a 3rd solo before the big ending, so it might feel like a rushed ending. With all that aside, hope you enjoy this.
  2. Check it out!! I really like how this came out!
  3. Zup humans! Been working on a remix of the underground theme from yoshi's island for the past 5 days. Its a WIP and I feel like my ears have become numb from listening to it for 5 days straight and I really need to hear what other people think about the mix and the arrangement. Original My remix
  4. UPDATE: FL Studio Version Hello, I'm a new user here and I would like to share a remix that I am working on with you guys and ask some basic feedback about the project in its current stage of development. Before jumping in, please consider the follow comments, to get an idea of where I am coming from and what I'm trying to accomplish. I am looking for feedback on some specific points. Tracks Used So I tried to combine a number of BGM's from the classic Gameboy game 'Volley Fire'. During development I noticed some easy to make connections with snippets from Starfox's Corneria theme, so I put those in as well. That gets us the following list: Stage Select (VF) Stage A (VF) Stage B (VF) Corneria (SF) I wanted to at least give the old source tunes a sound update and create a progressively expanding scene, adding more instruments, driven by a nice beat. I initially started playing around on the piano, going on my memory of the original tracks, but soon found out my memory was slightly off. But this created some nice variation that makes it a more true remix. What I'd Like Feedback On You should know that I have only started making music since november 2014. I have made a number of private compositions since, and this would be my second "completed" video game remix. I do not have professional music making software, but rather am using MuseScore2, which is a notation program. For that reason, I am not looking for feedback on the quality of sounds and instrument samples. I know these are lacking. Mastering is not too much of a concern at this point either, because the program isn't made to do that. Until I can invest in something like Fruity Loops, I want to limit the scope to other areas: Does the overall composition work? Do you think the transitions between sections are alright, or are they too sudden or weird? What would be a good way to transition them nicely so that it feels like a whole? Is the total length alright? Does the track have enough variety, keeping it interesting enough to listen to from beginning to end? What do you think of my use of the source material? Is it 'remixy' enough? I realize that sound quality and mastering might effect how you answers some of these questions, but hopefully this will be useful enough anyway. Thanks for taking the time to listen and respond! Looking forward to learning from you guys and becoming a better musician in the process. Remix Link Find the track on SoundCloud here: https://soundcloud.com/user-227517766/folly-fire-volley-fired-feedback-ready I'm naming it either "Folly Fire" or "Volley Fire'd", probably preferring the first.

  5. hello everyone. i just joined but i've been enjoying OCR content since at least 2005-2006. i started making my own music in 2009 and it's been one of my bucket list items to get a remix up on OCR someday. i'm sure megalovania remix submissions are a dime a dozen but here i go anyway. Tindeck link for those who prefer it since I know soundcloud is going to make it sound a little swooshy I finished this about a month ago and i've been toying with the idea of reworking and polishing it for submission to OCR, but ultimately i just don't know if it's good enough. anyone at all who's interested in telling me what i could be doing better is more than welcome to. i don't know for sure if I will end up submitting this song specifically or if i'll do something else entirely, but I really need to know what to work on as an artist. laypeople/non-audio engineer types have told me it sounds good, but i'm anxious that there are problems with dynamics/mixing/etc under the surface that I don't even realize are there. just lay it on me, be honest if there's something i'm blatantly doing wrong. i want to improve. making music is one of the things i'm most passionate about and I want to get better. I made this song entirely in a DAW called Auxy, which is free ipad app, though i used a lot of extra instrument packs bought in-app. im not very rich, so i only have a couple pairs of half-decent headphones to monitor mixing and dynamics in different-sounding headphones, aside from listening off my computer speakers. I'll likely buy a pair of Sennheiser or Bose cans for the purpose of making music specifically down the road, but for now I'm making do with a couple of Sony and RockCandy earbuds that were like 10-20 bucks. Again, any feedback from anyone is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  6. A subdued, sombre take on it. It's not attention grabbing, but it's not meant to be, so hopefully that's not a negative. Feedback appreciated: https://sites.google.com/site/vspaine/wips/Invest M.mp3?attredirects=0&d=1 Original:
  7. What's up guys, I'm working on a VGM Remix album. Released a few teasers at my YouTube page. Teaser 1 - Donkey Kong Country - Aquatic Ambience Teaser 2 - Chrono Trigger - Opening/Title Theme Teaser 3 - Castlevania Bloodlines - Iron-Blue Intention Music styles will be well varied.. Would be cool to hear what people think, and perhaps find some new subscribers. All the best!
  8. Hello everyone! I've been trying to branch our with my remixes lately, so I tried more a dance style for this one I suppose. I'm still pretty new to this style of remix, so there's probably gonna be a lot of issues with mixing, mastering, and, well, probably everything. I tried to listen to see what I could find what was wrong on my own, but I just don't think I'm skilled enough to hear what else is wrong at this point. Newest version link: https://app.box.com/s/bw7lfimge7681g2fu62ofppxvgd4zmg6 and here's a link to the source: again, I already know there's probably a lot of issues, but I really want to improve with this kind of music so hopefully I can get some help! Thanks!
  9. Hi all, I recently had my first submission to OCremix rejected with some very good critical feedback. I will be reworking the track based on the feedback from the judges. The guitar synth sound and the overall mix need some work. I'm still learning production techniques, I had outsourced the mixing and mastering for that track on fiverr. Since submitting the first track, I've been working on a Tyrian Title theme remix. This mix uses the same guitar sound I used in my first submission, so I am aware of it's limitations and will be reworking both this and my first submission using Shreddage as suggested by Liontamer. That said, I've been learning buss mixing and sjidechaining techniques and I mixed this one myself and mastered with Landr. Aside from the guitar sound in general, I'm looking for feedback on the mix quality and what I could do to improve the sound. Happy listening!
  10. Hey guys, I am working on a collection of songs from Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga in celebration of the 3DS HD Remaster, Since Super Star Saga was one of my favorite GBA games back in the day, I hope that you guys can help me recreate some songs from the series, I don't even mind you guys partaking in the collection of songs! Here is my first song in this collection, A rearrangement of the boss theme
  11. Alright, I can't stop with all the ideas, I'll never get anything done at this rate. I'll make this into an arrangement of History Unfolds from Soul Calibur 2, and hopefully I'll find someone to do guitar for this. Remix: Azure Lightning Strikes (History Unfolds ReMix) Source: EDIT: I'm editing the drums now to make it more interesting, I know the arrangement is fairly short, but so is the source, I know the source usage here is sparse even though that part that I wrote uses the main chord progression just very very different rhytmically, I dunno hopefully this'll be good.
  12. Hello everyone! It's been a while, hasn't it? This is sort of a calming/meditation/whatever remix that I am doing of the "Hope, Isolation, Pray" theme from Seiken Densetsu 3. I started this on a really long time ago, and I kinda got to a point where I was stuck and I eventually gave up on it in favor of some other projects. Today, I stumbled across it while looking for some other files, and I decided to give it another try now since I have better sounding samples and whatnot. This mix is meant to feel kinda airy and empty at first, and then build up slowly. I'm trying to decide where I should go with it, so it does cut off abruptly. Anyway, check it out and let me know what you think. Any feedback is helpful. Thanks
  13. Hello there, This is my first arrangament for OCRemix: https://www.dropbox.com/s/x0npzk4bc7443g8/Into The Calm Of It.wav?dl=0 Right now is not finished (it ends abruptly at 1:33). I will add more parts, the mix and mastering still need work, and I will make more minor changes to the the arrangament to make it more interesting I have choosed a song from Secret Of Mana, and my idea was to rearrange the song into something more calmer, more contemplative. Maybe it will differ from the original but my idea wasn't to cover exactly the original song, but making something new from the original ideas of the composer (without adding new melodies or harmony). Here is the original song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFKoFzNfQdA I would like to receive any type of feedback. Arrangament/interpretation, production, performance, strucutre, etc... Note that this is my first arrangament, I've always composed original music, so... any tip is welcome.
  14. As one of my favorite video game composers, I had to remix a Naoki Kodaka ("Blaster Master"/"Batman"/"Raf World") piece at some point. Here's something I'm currently working on, inspired by one of many beautiful tracks taken from Sunsoft's SEGA Saturn RPG -- "Albert Odyssey: Legend of Eldean": It's still drafty, but feel free to share feedback and advice while friends and I work on arrangements and lyrics writing
  15. This was a song I remixed a while ago, but frankly, it wasn't good by any means. So I'm deciding to "use tackle" on this one again with a little more style. ReMix: Bubbles Shining Over the Sea ReMix Source:
  16. Original Song : I know it just kinda ends but for right now I want to get the balance right.
  17. Hey OC Remix community! I am still improving my production and composition skills with the little time that I dedicate to writing and producing. I am hoping that get some input that will help this remix be appropriate for submission! As a caveat, I do plan on recording a few classical instrument performances (I play the clarinet) and I will humanize the piece a lot when I near completion of the piece. I also have not "master mixed" the piece. However, I think that this piece is coming along nicely. I intended for this piece to mix classical with electronic elements (there are two synths). Phantasy Star IV's music does this well so I wanted to also incorporate that into this remix. I also am mashing two pieces of music into one remix because the first song I chose was a bit thin on length (content). The two pieces have a similar vibe and they are Requiem for Lutz and The Age of Fables. I would consider this approximately 55% done but that's a rough estimate. I don't know how much more can be done exactly but there are a number of ideas floating around in my head (got a head ache). Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Download of the remix in progress: http://www.tonalbliss.com/music/displays/truthbetold_4.mp3 The two original tunes I'm basing my mix on on YouTube: https://youtu.be/uH-4DZWv5fI?list=PLirSddeMOYZ5E_9xpoTRYi3ksQmlFPdFL and https://youtu.be/afEQQhQajLE?list=PLirSddeMOYZ5E_9xpoTRYi3ksQmlFPdFL
  18. This is just a rough draft but an idea I had while fiddling around with some hip hop/lo-fi sounding fonts. Feedback, ideas, if anyone wants to rap to this? I'm not done with it yet, but I'll hopefully get the full thing done soon. ReMix: Mario World - Map/Star Power Themes ReMix Source: Map Star Power
  19. Fairly straightforward version of the OMF2097 title theme. The name (wip?) comes from the fact that this uses some C64 samples, though it doesn't sound that Commodore 64 in the end. Made during the free round of People's Remixing Compo in December. https://www.dropbox.com/s/xrv3ledpslcmwi0/eino_keskitalo-OneMustFall2064-20170617-wip.mp3?dl=0 Not intending to do a ton of more work on the track, but probably the bass mixing needs a good pass, and the very quiet pad might have some harmony issues with long release tails. If you have any feedback, please let me know! Intending to submit soon-ish. Source:
  20. Here I am toying again with an old Lemmings song: Remaking it with Fruity Loops. So far drums are looping but the soundscape is taking shape https://app.box.com/s/z5xw1eqhjk7vj85lt463ojhxg8y8c2mr Feedback is always welcome. Hope you enjoy anyway
  21. This mix is very early on at the time of this post and is actually missing some things I wanted to do with it, but I'd also like to know if it's really worth pursuing. This is actually a project that's been sitting on my hard drive in various forms (all of them very unfinished) since around 2009, I think? I feel like it needs some countermelody right now; being locked into the same chord progression the whole track is kind of boring, it's WAY too close to the original piece in a lot of ways, and production hasn't even been addressed yet other than some really basic compression and EQing. After listening through a few times I have also just decided that I don't like the drum samples I'm using all that much. Plus there's a section where I just kind of randomly noodled on a keyboard and it doesn't make a ton of sense. Oh well. Thoughts? Link to WIP Original theme
  22. I've made the track using Default VST's just tweaked enough to sorta emulate the vibe of the original instrumentation. Hopefully you enjoy it. That's what I want to achieve. Last Update: After some revisions and taking feedback into consideration, This track is being labeled W.I.P. until I get a new version done. (it's gonna take a while.) Original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uX0hU7jQ5O4 The NYC Streets Break or Tabla Break has a tempo change and some changes in the strings chords to complement the piece in general and I didn't want it to sound like a medley. https://youtu.be/RgIE6Pb_MFE?t=51s And finally I threw in UNATCO's main melody in the very end. https://youtu.be/nBPK_oXeJgA?t=22s
  23. Submitted this for MnP and I'm wondering if it has some potential. Fire away. Original:
  24. Hey OCR, long time no see. I've been sitting on this track for years because it's given me nothing but trouble. But I came back to it a few weeks ago and I think it's at the point where I need some feedback before I can finish it up. v1: https://app.box.com/s/38r28rpqu91k96117s8d6ztwx829fyci v2: https://app.box.com/s/qvzh9ji0k7uvyj68qhnjrww9h4dnqhj3 All comments are appreciated but I'd particularly like some feedback on the following: 1. Timing - are there any timing issues you notice? Do they bother you? 2. The beginning section, particularly at 1:03 - Thoughts on the transition? 3. Organ - How does it sit in the mix? 4. Whispered vocals - what do you think of the processing on these? 5. Vocals at 2:36 - do they stick out badly or are they fine? Thanks for listening and for any feedback you can provide! (Source): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mNX_m1P3Mc Edit: Oh yeah, there are a few chords from Lavos' theme in there as well :).
