Hi, to whom ever is reading this (djpretzel, or another staff member?)

I was recently introduced to this site, remix.overclocked.org, and have
become interested in adding one of my remixs to your archives! As this is my
first time, I'm kind of vague as to what to say, so I'll just get straight
to the info about my song.

Title: Chrono Trigger - Lavos Battle (dnBoss remix)
Artist: ABG
Year: 2002

My website is www.mp3.com/djabg
My email is aredguitar@hotmail.com
My real name (if you need it) is Shawn Overn

I think thats all the info the Submission Guidlines say you need, so... ^_^
You can download the mp3 from my mp3.com site (http://www.mp3.com/djabg) I posted the track in your WIP forums for comments and I've gotten nothing
but positive feedback, so I hope there won't be any problems adding it to
your archives!

Thank you!

Interesting intereperetation of the original. The execution isn't half bad, either! I only have two complaints: the part that sounded like the Chrono Trigger theme could have been expanded on a lot - as it is, it seems like it was thrown in just because you wanted to reference the original. While not a bad thing, it's better if you can make it make sense within the context of the song as well, and expanding on it could do a lot here. My second gripe is the fade-out ending - I think this is begging for something a little stronger!

Regardless of those gripes, though, I think this is a YES
Yeah? Well, you're stupid times infinity!

This mix could definitely use some panning, but that's all I can really complain about. It's not really a bad thing ^_^ Other than that, it's a pretty damn nice interpretation of the originals. Enjoyed listening to it - Though, the ending DOES fade out (not cool)

Oh well.

Yes

Well this is certainly a style for a Lavos mix that I didn't expect. Unfortunately I'm none too keen on the mix, some parts kind of sound empty, maybe that was the intention? Maybe I'm just used to mixes with lots of reverb. I'm not too sure on this one, but I'm gonna have to go with my gut.

My gut says, Maybe

Only kidding. I like it, just not too sure on the emptyness I'm hearing.

Vote: Yes

This has 4 yesses... Why is this still up here? ARE YOU JUST WAITING FOR ME TO SAY NO TO IT?!?!? IS THAT WHAT YOU WANT?!?

Fine

Let me download this and figure out why, in some objective sense, this sucks.

Nice handle on the beats. Whoever this mysterious musician is, he certainly knows how to bust a groove quite well in the dnb category. But this mono thing really bugs me. Here's why:

If you're using software for your instruments, then I can't understand why it'd be in mono, unless all of your samples are in mono, but even if that's the case, you can always stereo detune the samples so they at least FAKE stereo. I mean, if you listen to the original, it's all OVER the place in the stereo field, panning from left to right and back again, over and over again. Maybe that annoyed you and so you overcorrected or something, but mono, these days, is just dull. Now if you were using hardware for sounds, I can almost understand. if you don't ahve the right connection to go from your board to the computer, I could see why it'd come in as mono, but there's a really easy way around this: Get the right cables. Most boards have a 1/4" out for each channel, one for left, one for right, sometimes more. But usually, they have a right and left line out quarter-inch jack. Your computer most likely has one 1/8" input jack and so you need some cable setup that goes from a male 1/8" to two male 1/4" connectors.

Get two of these:

Phono Plug Adapter

and one of these:

6-Ft Specialty Y-Adapter


Put 'em together, run 'em from your computer to your board, and then record.

And yes, I know that with four yesses there's no real difference if I vote NO right now, but that mono thing is really annoying.

Nice remix, but the actual mp3 is terrible. being in mono seriously
kills it. it sounds like it was recorded from speakers with a microphone.

I dont think this should be posted in it's current state. Also, the
fade out ending is pretty weak.


so let me say this is a VERY STRONG NO.

If were were just talking about the arrangement, sure, but not like this.
