finished Gray Planet (remix) - A Remix...Of Original VGM

8 posts in this topic

Apparently there is someone on soundcloud with the username Farcaster. I will use the name Cinctulus for my uploads, since that's my most common username for other things.

Although this is a remix, I'm pretty sure it belongs here. This is a remix I recently did of a song I wrote for a class project. I figured sharing this would be a good way to introduce myself as an artist here. The project was a very basic flash platformer which was written for a (again, very basic) game programming class. I'm not terribly proud of the source, but I feel obligated to post it because this is, in all respects, a remix.

FL Studio is my DAW of choice. I've been actively working with FL studio for a couple months now, but I've had it for years. I messed around with it a lot when I was 16 or so, but not enough to learn anything usable. I decided to install it again recently to write something for my game. Afterward, I picked up a few VSTs and that was that.

I look forward any and all feedback, good or bad :-D

The remix link is broken, but the source is actually entertaining to listen to.

Can I get permission to remix the source too, for one of my upcoming music albums? This would be an example of what I occasionally do:

I do all sorts of music though. Heavy Metal, Electronica, Ambient, Retro, Jazz, and others.

Fixed the link, sorry about that! Thanks, and yes, of course you have permission to remix the source. I really look forward to hearing what you come up with if you decide to go through with it. I enjoyed the song you linked me to a lot.

That's not a bad remix at all! There's some really creative glitch effects and high pass effects in there. :D

Not a bad remix of that original tune you made there. I think you definitely have some masking of lower frequencies going on, and you could bring out them hi hats a bit more - overall I think just doing some EQ work and spacing out your instruments would greatly help the overall mix of the tune.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. Syllix, mixing tips are what I need more than anything. Your suggestions are greatly appreciated :-D

I'll dig back into it and try to clean things up as soon as I get the chance.

And thanks for the kind words, timaeus!

No problem! And if you ever want to do any collaborations, if I have time I can do that too! :)
