I'm surprised that overclocked doesn't already have

this song in one form or another. This is a remix of

the classic bomberman battle music theme that we all

know and love. This is my first submission and music

creation isn't exactly my thing so please take it easy

on me =(

Okay, right off the bat I can tell it's FruityLoops, the drum samples are default. But as soon as the melody comes in, it lessens the obviousness of that.

It's a fun little tune, and it smells of default FruityLoop samples, but it's not a bad mix overall.

I give it a Yes.

Not too bad, but I don't like the sound of the "bass". It sounds like crap. It's a yes, but barely.

Gah... I don't know about this one. Something about it just really grates on my nerves. Plus, it doesn't sound like too far a leap from original game audio.

I'm gonna have to vote no here.

It DOES sort of sound a bit too much like the original. Though there is something aurally pleasing about the bit at :47 but it lasts only 10 seconds. From what I've noticed in NSF files basslines are very complex and don't always work as well when put in terms of newer instruments. The thing to remember when remixing 8-bit tunes is that when the original composer chose the notes he did, it was most likely because he was constrained to 3 melodic tracks and a noise track, not because he would have chosen the same notes if he had been writing for an entire orchestra. That's why as a remixer you have to take some liberties with interpretation of the 8-bit tunes, you can't just take all the parts verbatim and add a drum track and call it improvement. In fact, sometimes people will end up preferring the original, because it's got the same stuff, but is more pure. Anyway, I'm off of my soapbox for now and this remix gets a no from me.

:? Well...nah. Gonna have to say no. It's a cute mix, but even though I've never played Bomberman it sounds like is doesn't stray far enough from the original. I think this is a good practice song as far as getting to know the software of his choice (FruityLoops). As Rob mentioned, the majority of the settings are set to default. I might keep it on the HD as one of those rainy day mixes to listen to, but as for posting I'm gonna say no.

No.

I can hear the fruityloops default sounds, and those hats are quite irritating. For a first song, it's quite good, there is a nice touch of reverb on the melodic synth.

Bit more practice needed, I can feel some potential here.
