  1. 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
  2. Hey there, i've made a remix of the song "Reconstructing more Science" from the Portal 2 game and require some feedback. I've submitted the first version of the song but it did not make it to the judges panel. This actually is not a bad thing because i've got some very good feedback and worked a few days on the song to improve it. Here are some problems listed in the feedback email i worked on after getting feedback: Now i need to know if any of those problems still are present in the current version of the song or if anything else might be a problem. I thank everybody who is giving constructive feedback <3 _Edit: So i got a very good evaluation after i marked the post as "ready for review" and continued working on the song after i got the feedback. After almost two weeks i've finished working on version 7 and are ready for more feedback. New problems mentioned by Rozovian i am/was working on: -daWaschbaer First version of the song: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4qhWIS85-GwdkFkYm9jVGkxMHM Second version of the song: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4qhWIS85-GwMV9kT1F5QmxMc0k Third version of the song: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4qhWIS85-GwVGNSWk1wcTNKNlk Fourth version of the song: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4qhWIS85-GwZmJJZjhfMjJnZWc With version 4 i've tried to solve the overcompression problem. Fifth version of the song: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4qhWIS85-GwY1loeFhTbTNYc1U I've increased the volume by 3 dB. Fifth version of the song [short]: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4qhWIS85-GwSFFmdEV3VWNheDA I've shortened the song so the length fits the content. Sixth version of the song: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4qhWIS85-GwZWs1WUFwNXZjVFE (Made the reverb less intensive from 2:00 to 2:15 and lowered the volume of the piano from 2:56 to 3:28 (because i wanted the piano to be in the background in this part). Current version of the song that requires feedback (v7): https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4qhWIS85-GwNDV5UmJSOW1zOUk (Tried to fix the problems Rozovian mentioned like the mixing problem,the transitions and the drums. I've changed the piano and need feedback which piano is better. And yes, i was ending on the wrong note and i did not realise it until mentioned. I hope that there is not any overcompression anymore.) (When listening to the song keep in mind that it is meant to become more chaotic the longer you listen to it (especially at the end) Title of original song: Reconstructing More Science Link to original soundtrack: http://www.thinkwithportals.com/music.php (Reconstructing More Science found in Volume 2)
  3. I wanted to produce a synthwave arrangement of the source but couldn't help using "organic" instruments for the leads and drums. I thought it could be interesting to try and find a right balance between synth and organic sounds -- keep those guitars, piano and drums and use only synths for the arrangements (which I'll start exploring way deeper when I find someone with a decent knowledge of synthwave music willing to help me ^^'). Original Source: Remix: I visualized Sonia telling her newborn son the tale of her adventures -- like it's a bedtime story -- when remixing this. Feel free to share feedbacks and whatnot :3
  4. I have the basics of a novel titled Remorse: Nothing More that I would love to publish one day alongside an album with each song corresponding to a chapter of the book. The album would all be orchestral (at least mostly) and each chapter's song would correspond with specific events in each chapter in mood and style. In this chapter, chapter five titled "Sustenance," the main character and the supporting character are resting after spending an entire day burying the martyred townsfolk. This rest after the weary and sad work is what the beginning is based upon. The supporting character then reveals that he grew up and lived some of his adult life as a soldier of the dictatorship ruling over their country. This dramatic revelation occurs with a flashback to his military days and is what the second part is based on. The final part (which hasn't been started--it is only a piano cord at the end) will be the main character staring at the partially burned church as a he falls asleep in prayer. Even if you don't understand what I'm trying to convey with the story please have a listen to my work in progress. I recently purchased new instruments so I am not that proficient with them yet. I use the DAW FL Studio 12. The following is the link for your listening pleasure. Please, I ask for feedback so that I can finish this piece! I also have a sound cloud account under the name of Tonal Bliss so please check me out. Thank you! http://www.tonalbliss.com/other/ChV-Sustenance6.mp3
  5. Hello everyone! I'm currently working on a Secret of Mana medley, with heavy riffs and cool orchestration. It is far from finished, but I thought I could do with some fresh and critical opinions to keep me on track, as I tend to over-listen my tracks when I'm working. Regarding the song, there is four different parts, and more to come: The intro, based on "Fear of the Heavens", but with a complete opposite feeling (hence the title). I wanted to turn the earie/mystery inducing feel of the original into something more like a fierce-warrior-marching-against-the-gods kind of epic stuff. I may have managed it (you tell me), but I feel the part still lack something, in the build-up maybe. The second part is made of really cool boncy riffs, based on "Dancing Animals", but I may have been a little to much side-tracked in the end. No orchestration here. As in the source name, I want this part to sound like a giant bear headbanging. The third part is the exact same thing as the first part FOR NOW, but I'm planning to give it more personnality in the future. I'm keeping the same kind of mood (and the same source, of course) The fourth part is a really lazy draft concerning "Spirit of The Night". I wasn't sure if I would put it here now or not, but then, it happened... ^^ Here, I want to have really emotionnal solos and this source is rather perfect for it (I personnaly call this part "Spirit of Metaaaaal"). The transitions are a bit off (mainly between 2-3 and obviously 3-4). I'm open to ideas! I'm rather confident regarding composition, I'm far less concerning mixing/mastering, so I am reaally open on this subject. Thank you for your feedbacks (and sorry for the poor english, it is not my mother tongue) The sources: The ReMix in progress: The old versions:
  6. Going back to my original roots and trying my hand at house music again. This time i thought should give some love to one of the must overlooked Sonic games of all time, Sonic CD! So who is the real hedgehog here?
  7. Practically done, just need to re-track some vocals and add some instruments towards the end since it kind of gets boring. I probably won't release the final version (like Facades) until the EP is out.. https://app.box.com/s/u1orz0yyukg3qqes6ekxzvcab4iyexs9 Lyrics: I've set aside myself for you I'm not too sure you understand I was sitting here Thinking over what we could (Live my life for you) Take this pain with us or Separate ourselves from these mistakes Don't talk about it. I've got a score to set with you I'm not too sure you wanna stay I was watching as my Lies were being put into place Chaos raining down We tried too hard to run away from this Don't talk about it I was sitting here Thinking over what we could do Maybe hoping there could be Something between me and you I was watching as my Lies were being put into place Chaos raining down We tried too hard to run away from this I'm not too sure you understand Just how fucked up I really am I was watching as my Lies were being put into place Chaos raining down We tried too hard to run away from this
  8. About to send my first submission :oops:

      Hey there!

      If you want, you could post your first submission on the WIP boards on here - that way you'll have some idea of how it'll fare on the panel without waiting the rather lengthy period of time it takes for us to respond.

      Just throwing that out there as a suggestion. Also, a hearty welcome to OCR to you! ;)

      Hey I wouldn't mind trying that :) I already submitted it, should I still post on the WIP boards? 

       

      Thanks for the welcome :D I have been following OCR for a few years now.. just had to finally join

      Sure - post it on the WIP boards and you'll have some idea as to how the panel will receive it. It's hard to tell how long it'll take to get from the submission inbox to the panel (according to the 'Currently in the Judging Process' thread, it looks like it's about in the 'August' area, so it's  a few months behind!), so it's better for you to get some idea prior to that. It's no fun to wait 6 months, then receive a letter with information... that would've been helpful for you 6 months ago.

      I mean, we're working on catching the panel up to the inbox, but it's all volunteer work, and it's done by hand. You could understand why there's often some backlogging in the process.

  9. Link:https://app.box.com/s/qy2ypsucjoiw3fwbm3xlbmzy2loi8pm0 Hey guys, I'm working on an EP to be released by May 5 this year. I posted on the facebook group for some online vocal lessons, but I'm probably gonna have to get my hands dirty and just go do some more at a nearby school (expensive! lol). But I figured while I wait for that, maybe people here wouldn't mind giving a review in the meantime. Tell me things you like, hate, etc. I realize the last line I sing is a little off, it was kind of rushed, sorry about that! If you are a seasoned singer I'd love to hear some comments thank you.

  10. Hey guys, I'm fairly new here and am just getting started on making original compositions for video games! I made a couple of tracks so far but may need an extra ear to see whether I'm heading in the right direction. Castor's theme attempts to exemplify the logical demeanor of "a man of few words", cold and calculating. Miranda, on the other hand, is a serene yet unyielding spirit. She represents a peaceful return from calamity, a gentle affirmation of small victories. In other words, the Kairi to your Sora for KH fans! Lastly, last chance plays when circumstances have turned for the worst and the protagonists must overcome their plight in absolute desperation I would love to hear what you all think! In the meantime, I'll continue making music as always. Thanks! Jescmo
  11. Hi, finally decided to make an account here and share stuff that I've made. This is Jake's theme from Advance Wars DS, hope some of you enjoy it.
  12. So here's a thing brostep-y I started workin' on one day when I just had a lot of free time: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1RmRwKRXmElWHhyM0NKVjBqYnc/view?usp=sharing This is currently the running rough draft, but there's gonna be a bit more added to it soon, along with some mixing fixes (as far as I can tell, there seems to be a bit too of the highs like hi-hat and saw chords while the subbass is not loud enough under some synths). Also, I might add an atmospheric sort of orchestral part between the drops with violins and horns. Any other advice?
  13. Samus Aran: the prolific bad-ass from the Metroid series and my personal favorite Nintendo character. I recently started replaying the older Metriod games and forgot how awesome this theme and level was. Watch out Ridley and Kraid there is a new bad-ass on this planet now. This very much a work in progress!! I am still not happy with the transition from Brinstar Depths back in to the regular Brinstar theme I am also still looking for a better space lead for the main theme and a way to work in the main theme during the dubstep parts. I am also considering adding the Super Metriod prologue intro to the beginning and possibly the during the transition from Brinstar Depths into the regular Brinstar theme. Anyway, I appropriate any feedback.
  14. Hello. I have uploaded a short excerpt from an original song which I am attempting to mix... Link: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/ftbejny6abxvvfh/S02T05 test.mp3 Here's a slightly different version: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/v96hp02tq9zaip0/S02T05 test - ver 2.mp3 I plan on eventually having the full song done by a professional, but currently I would like to know if my mix is of an acceptable quality for demonstration/preview purposes. Is there anything in particular that should be changed in terms of EQ or volume levels? Does it sound noticeably amateurish? All the instruments are programmed (including the guitars), since I'm a keyboard player and not a guitarist. I used Toontrack's Meshuggah EZdrummer demos as reference mixes. Edit: I compared it to some more tracks. I'm not really satisfied with the sound. I think the tone of the guitar and drums could still be improved a lot. Currently I am busy with another music-related project (not metal), but I may return to this later.
  15. adding some finishing touches on the invisible concrete mix to submit, so i figured i'd go ahead and post this one here. if anyone wants to collaborate, or has any ideas, let me know, 'cause I really don't know where to take this one. it's been in my folder for about 4 months untouched. Source: remix: https://app.box.com/s/lct029wckujmpmngodsbq57gka7aen02
  16. Hello again everyone! So I finally worked up the nerve to post here again with a new remix I've been working on. I've been working on this one for a while, and it was pretty fun to do. I kinda tried some things with different sounding basslines than I normally use and also I experimented with major key switches. As usual though, I still don't know much about production since I'm way too busy with school and work to look into learning more about it. So I just kinda do what I think sounds right, even though it is probably all wrong haha. Anyway, here's a link to the newest version so far if you'd like to listen: https://app.box.com/s/1houusvbvjb41nf0pkrqwo8q78llclu0 Edit: Forgot to put the source, whoops!
  17. Hey all, I'm excited to be here; I'm really hoping to get some of my mixes officialized by OC Remix so let's start here. I'm looking for whatever critique's you have. I like to use one defense first to preface it so I'll preface it here by saying: I didn't really do much mixing and my speakers are currently in a bad position. I went for a newer more synth version of jazz... so lots of synths and chiptune stuff here. Please enjoy. (or enjoy ripping it to pieces)
  18. source: I have my remix built, and not very well mixed yet. However, I'm trying to grab a little feedback: if you know the source - does it grab the nostalgia well enough? if you don't - would you say the arrangement is interesting+coherent enough? Was originally going for straight dance/trance and it turned into a sort of garage-y progressive vibe. wip wip wip wip wip
  19. Hello again, everyone! I'm currently arranging and fixing a couple of things on my old Vectorman mix before recording instruments and stuff and was wondering if anyone was interested in providing vocals (male or female) for it? The lyrics are available on SoundCloud and Youtube, so feel free to check them out. They were written by my good friend SuperSonication. Feedback is also very welcome and anyone else who wants to collaborate and re-work this piece with me is more than welcome -- for providing real instruments or arrangements purposes. Thanks in advance
  20. I hope this is the right place to post this. I know that the songs are not remixes, but i think the remastering made some songs sound a bit different and in my opinion, better (i also made some songs to end in a nice way). That is, if you have a 5.1 setup of course (use VLC and set the audio device in 5.1 if it doesn't change automatically. KMP mixes the channels wrong on my setup). Don't try these on a 2 channel setup. More info and links here: The video is just a stereo LQ preview. Read the description for the proper, remastered files.

  22. This was my entry for PRC259. I've mixed it a bit better thanks to feedback from that round (thanks especially Esperado and MindWanderer). I'm marking this as finished, as I'd like it to be.. but I need help determining if it's (a) actually serviceable/interesting as a piece of music (worth listening to) and ( good enough for OCR - especially the guitars. I'll be happy to work on this if it still needs work, but even happier to just submit it if it's ok! https://www.dropbox.com/s/otamh46v6s8dzf9/eino_keskitalo_-_Kaikuluotain_wip_20131217.mp3 --Eino
  23. Remix Original This is my first remix I have ever wanted to push. I eventually want to submit it to OC but, I believe there is more to be added. Any advice is appreciated!
  24. Here's a mix of the Route 113 theme I did a while ago. I juxtaposed some very nice, airy, ambient sounds with some thumping, swung and unswung drums in 6/8 time. Route 113 is one of my favorite themes from R/S/E, so I've wanted to remix this one for a while. Let me know what you think!
