Um... where's the mix? Ah, there it is.

Ok, This seems pretty cool. I like the phasing. It's very laid back, good use of sound effects. Ah, here comes the guitar, it sounds perfect. I love it!

Not the best homage to the original, but still, HOT. I am flamingly gay for those electric guitar textures.

Just so you all know, the "guitar" is a subtractor patch with a Scream 4 distortion unit.

Check it out.


I love Reason 2.5.

This remix is the first FF6 remix I've heard in a long time that I've really enjoyed. The repetition got me curious, and the different instruments (and implementation of said instruments) compliment each other nicely. Very cool.

I can remember hearing this on the WIPs, seems most of the popular WIPs usually make it all the way to submissions. Glad this one made it. This is some great electronica composition; given that OCR doesn't get them very often anymore. I can't remember what comments I made on this the first time, but I do give it my seal of approval for what its worth. :D

i'm sorry, i totally love the song, but i honestly can't hear what song was remixed here. i've heard it on repeat for at least 5 times, and i still can't figure out the original. can someone point it out to me? thanks ;D

I believe there is Cyan's theme there. I think it's about time somebody did a remix on Cyan's theme. Thanks D!

Not bad! While not as subdued as the original, this mix still sticks to its source and is easier to make out than K. Praslowicz's other Shadow's Theme remix (recommended for any electric guitar fans). Makes me think of a modern-day ninja infiltrating a corporate headquarters in downtown Tokyo. I'll recommend it, so anybody out there who doesn't listen to anything unless Tacitus says its good can go ahead now...you poor, poor souls.

Sorry Ricecell, this isn't Cyan's Theme. That piece of music has woodwind and strong strings in the background. Just FYI.

I liked it. Drums could have been a bit louder, though.

The production here is tite (as that punk Larry Oji would say): there are a lot of very cool, subtle effects like the feedback noises that pop up with the chime synth, as well as some cool background ambiance. The drums are nice as well, and do a good job of backing everything up without really getting in the way. The guitar effects are great - and though I figured out right away that it wasn't a real guitar, it's still sonically cool and really adds to the atmosphere of the mix.

There are really minor complaints I have: I didn't really dig the bass, and I think the low synth at 2:29 might've sounded a little better shorter. Mainly, my complaint is that the piece is more focused on achieving a certain sound than really expanding upon the original. There's no problem with that at all, but because there's not as much depth to the arrangement, it leaves me with more indifference than usual - more like "hey that's pretty cool" instead of "OMG AWESOME!11". But I don't think it was Mr. Baranowksy's intention, either.

I wasn't fooled by the guitar, but I love the texture just the same. This song's texture is definitely its strong point, and I like the variation in the different sections of the song. The EQ and levels are well done, except the chime synth with the delay/feedback on top of the guitar synth sounds a little cluttered to my ears. I'm not sure if I like or dislike that.

The arrangement isn't phenomenal, but this is one of the most listenable and interesting OC Remixes of FF6.

Excellent work, Mr. Baranowsky. Very mellow, though there's just enough edge there to remind you what you're listening to. It's still a theme that'd slit its momma's throat for a nickel. :) Love that whistling synth in the background. Gets me all nostalgic over here.

very hip-hoppish, and somehow fitting. i love what you did with the main melody.

I believe there is Cyan's theme there. I think it's about time somebody did a remix on Cyan's theme. Thanks D!

did you register just to make one post?

and even what you said was incorrect.

oh well. it's shadow's theme, and while cyan's theme r0x0rbates my b0x0rz until they tangle with my s0x0rz, shadow's theme reigns supreme.
in death metal and black metal, unicorns and butterflies just don't fit. unless the unicorns are undead monsters and the butterflies are on fire.

Inspiring. There is little more than can be said about it. The feel and intensity changes with this piece, yet flows together nicely from section to section. Very well done.
