Final Fantasy XIV - Anything

9 posts in this topic

Let's take a seat, children, and discuss the severe lack of FFXIV music on OCRemix.org

Now, some will argue "90% of the music from this game is just remixed versions of previous games", to which I would say "Well what about the 10% that isn't?"

Personally, I'd like to see some alternate takes on the different Primal Battles. Shiva with pixietricks? Yes please. Titan ala NekoFrog? Take my money!

Any of the specific dungeon themes, as there's generally FOUR songs per dungeon (Background music, Background music during a fight, first and second Bosses, and the final boss), are also perfect for arrangements. Playing around with different dungeon's music and arranging them would be really neat to hear.)

There's plenty of opportunities for really interesting and great arrangements in this game, and it makes me kinda sad that no one has jumped on it in the years the game has been out. And new music is added every three months! It's ever expanding!

+1 for this game having an incredible soundtrack. I have started on a remix of the game but it's currently in hiatus as i've been busy with other songs for various things. I'll probably return to my mix sometime this year, but others should hit this soundtrack up too.

Holy crap, thank you for alerting me to this.

I just got to Ishgard in the game and had a moment of pure "Holy crap, this is beautiful" when the night-time theme ("Nobility Sleeps") came on in the Pillars:

 

Just... UNF. As soon as I'm done with the things I'm currently working on, I'm going to start on an epic rock/metal remix with soaring lead guitar lines- mostly because there's no way I can match the beauty and tranquility of the original song so I might as well dirty it up a little! :P
