Nope. But I'll be damned, I didn't know you could 4:20 A.M.
But can you DJP?

It's not exactly -the- mix of the Veldt I've been hoping for.. But it's more than enough to tide me over until someone does it.
On a little side note-thingy here.. The name "Sveldt", makes me think of Group-X.

I'm loving it. This is truly what djping is all about.
I can just see a room full of people head bobbing together in tune with the music.

That said, thank you, DJP, for finally giving us a remix of this theme. The veldt was indeed a catchy tune, which is good based on the number of times you have to go there. Do I catch pieces of Strago's tune in here as well?
I would say that the begining was a bit abrupt and the feel threw me off at first. I was kinda hoping for the awesome drum score that went with the original. However, the piano and sax solidifies things into a very enjoyable whole and, while the piano and sax are somber, and the drum track isn't present, the piece retains its upbeat and mysterious quality. I especially congratulate you on your switch to what I believe is Strago's theme near the end. This was so brilliantly done that I didn't even catch it at first. All in all, the essence of the piece ends up being transformed into a sound more reminiscent of Chrono Trigger than FF. Which works amazingly well.

I haven't always agreed with the way you run things, David, but it doesn't change the fact that you know what you're doing.
So, Pretz, here's to another 5 years of excellent music, noob-bashing, judge-bashing, thread-breaking, bagel-wanging, Vortex-pic-whoring, catgirls, sporks and "favorites" thread-making. Cheers!
Excellent remix, by the way.

Go figure that this would turn into a thank you thread. Appropriate, definitely. Well, I'll say my thanks as well because it's well earned. Thanks DJP for giving us remixers the opportunity to get together and form what I have come to consider my music haven on the net. I've been with you for three years now, downloading, listening, dropping my jaw time after time and again, and coming back. Why? Because simply: You're remixes and the remixes of everyone who's ever posted at OCR are the best things to happen to the gaming music world. Again, here is my personal thanks to you, DJ Pretzel, for OverClocked.
All that jibberish aside though (=P), this remix is awesome. Definitely a different take on an already-catchy-but-often-overlooked song from FFVI. I really like the beat in the beginning that you have there. It's funky, but it's the good kind of funk. The kind that just makes you tap your feet and bob your head whether you want to or not. The flute/recorder thingy for the melody is reminiscient to your Sonic remix which is really, really interesting. And the piano gives it a nice, gentler kind of kick. When you come in with the guitar, it's just icing on the cake.
In my overall opinion, not your best mix, but definitely one of the top mixes. If we're not comparing to your history at all, and looking strictly at this piece, then only good things can be said. Great job DJP. Here's to another five years, and then some, of OCR.

As for the mix, I absolutly LOVE the overall groove, and the sax/gutiar gave me chills -- litterally. I found the piano section at 1'38 interesting...perhaps somewhat out-of-place given the overall feel of this remix. However, at 2'45 the piano comes back and flows perfectly. The smooth sax ending is the perfect ending to a near-perfect piece...one of your best.
Here's to five more -- and then some.
Props to IronKnuckle for the sig!
