what The Eluryahn said
...and, ironically, something just came up for me. The mixes will be up a little late.
Alright, mine is in. Looking forward to hearing what people came up with!
As am I my friend.
If it plays out the way it always does... I'll take a second listen to my track and go
'oh wait this isn't as good as i remember'
If I had a penny...
Please check your PMs.
And I kindly reciprocate this by asking you to check yours in return.
That being said, I have a feeling that I'm going to get a case of the coulda-woulda-shoulda's in a little bit...

This. Always this.
That, and sometimes I do that halfway through a work-in-progress. Stupid perfectionism...
like two minutes after I subbed, I had two spots that I noticed could've used fixes. they weren't song ruiners, but still frustrating
Oh, quick question, there aren't any rules against uploading [my/our] submission to Soundcloud, is there?
Mixes are up. Anorax and Tuberz, I don't have time today to hunt down Youtube clips of your sources, so it would be helpful if you could provide them.
It's your art, you have ownership of it.Mixes are up. Anorax and Tuberz, I don't have time today to hunt down Youtube clips of your sources, so it would be helpful if you could provide them.
EDIT: In hindsight, I think my mix is way too conservative of the source... drat

Forgot to post my sources. Here ya'll go.
Yo. This be my source dudes.
Chun-Nan Dragon Road Day
Plus I had a few cameos from a certain source tune that I'll give props to whoever notices it.
Yep, after listening to my track again... I feel somewhat subpar.
Might have been the exceptional quality of mixes. <3 Nice job guys!

i hath voted. just in case my vote pm never showed up or something
Listening back through for judging, and
holy crap, was my EQing really that bad?
Ok, so here goes, in alphabetical order by song title
Calm of Sweden - It's not easy to judge your own track for quality, because it's your own track.
However, I'll try anyway.
- - - - -
The high reverberation in the beginning is a bit much, but not really overkill. From a listener's standpoint, I like how the piano and the pizzicato strings have the reverb applied.
The Rhodes piano could probably use more work on the bass end, and the the cello in the background adds a solid sound to the intro.
1:21 - The bass needs more sound to it, unfortunately. Probably should have applied a sine an octave below the bassline here to round it out.
Kick could use some mixing magic to bring it out more.
2:30 - the strings are relatively well mixed, IMO. The reverb is back, and this time it may be a bit much - it sounds too open and the reverb tail is too long. The drums sound a bit awkward at the beginning, but then it blends in nicely when the strings all come in.
Overall, the use of source is rather uh, generous. However, it holds itself together well.
...jeez it's so WEIRD to critique your own work like that!
Freedom Of Youth
Opening pads are nice, although the kick seems shallow, like it's missing some highs or something. I don't know.
I like the progressive feel of the track through and through.
So far, there aren't any real glaring obvious mixing mistakes or anything like that. The mix as a whole is pleasant to listen to, even if you're unfamiliar with the source. (me!)
I like what Esperado did with this song. After going back and listening to the source, I can DEFINITELY hear in the track. Well done.
Godda Go Faste
Guessing by the title, I'm assuming it's a Sonic source
The oriental instrumentation at the beginning really adds character to the song, and when the guitars come in it's amazing. Just goes to show that Tuberz really knows his way around a guitar.
Of course, I don't know what hakstock did to help him out, so I'm just running on assumptions here.
Around 1:40, there are parts where it sounds like the bass is playing non-chord tones. That really stood out to me, almost like a sore thumb. To me, it kind of pulled the mix apart for a bit. However, it didn't last long, and the song came back together well.
The ending was kind of cool, gotta admit.
Again, unfamiliar with the source, but hot damn this is a cool arrangement! Especially when you go back and listen to the source.
Mario! The Galaxy Awaits
Clicked play and immediately spaced out. *shot for bad pun*
very nice, spacey arrangement. To me, it sounds a bit negative, considering the source. Sounds more like a boss theme than a file select theme.
1:40 - 2:20, the mix relaxes again, back to a more spacey soundscape.
Then at 2:20 - 2:38, you have bass-heavy, boss theme feel again, which isn't bad, but doesn't match the source in my opinion. THen the song relaxes back into the calm space atmosphere until the end.
A very interesting take on the source. Overall, I like it, but there are times when I kept the source in mind as I listened, and it sounded off to me.
One Final Prophecy
Don't know the source, but I like this mix. Really cool.
Not much to say about this. Really nice and enjoyable altogether, although there are some spots where the transitions seem off, like around 1:42. Other than that, really cool mix, and I can't find much to say about mixing issues or anything. You guys did a great job with this mix!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
I think I was more harsh on my own mix, but I kind of figured I'd do that anyways.
You guys all did great.
Now, to go vote!
Results are in! Low voter turnout this week--not sure if it's because the theme was uninspiring or because it was really hard to choose. It felt like a really close contest to me.
I'm not really surprised at being in last, I was also working on a remix for the FL Studio Remix Gauntlet. Even so, all I really care about is the experience. Anyway, I definitely enjoyed everyone's work!

Results are in!
I'm still not sure how I won lol, I certainly felt as if there were more original/creative arrangements than mine.
Then again, I was style-copying again, so shame on me (emulating Zedd)
Wow, second, thanks guys! it was definitely a tough vote!
syllix is a great star as well! alot of really good advice
Shit, I forgot to vote this round. Sorry guys!
