BISON BACK FROM THE DEAD! FFVI Devil's Lab (FINISHED)

Been gone for a long time. 3 years now. Happy to see my CT remix is still being played.


I came on here to show off my new videogame themed ska album. After reading comments about my old tracks I decided to post a WIP track for old times sake:

It's a glitch remix of Devil's lab. As usual, don't be haitin' because I change the melodic material and form around... It's supposed to be a remix right?

Let me know what you think. I'll submit it if you guys think I'll make it through the gauntlet.

Here is the Link: http://asmoday.googlepages.com/final...oryocremix.mp3

Check out "Princess Mario" at www.myspace.com/tentoomany
for some crazy ska/punk videogame stuff from my band.

Awesome.

This is some of the best industrial electronica I have ever heard in an extremely long time, if ever. Of course, these genres fit perfectly for the Devil's Lab.

I don't have much to say (the sound designs are very good), but composition wise, it is a bit lacking. There is a repeat of the theme which could be done perhaps...at least in a different fashion, I feel. Unleash the electronica beast!

That high pitched whistle thing is a bit annoying at times.

Kick ass. I can't wait to see this on OCR.

I'll make the arrangement a bit more fun... Perhaps a standard version of the theme would be a surprise after all that variation.

Annoying whistle thing. Got it.

Thanks for the comments.

The percussion is great, but would be much better yet if a more solid beat came on top at some point, now it kinda feels like it's just one extended build up to the real song. Also, the synths are kind of bland, again, something a bit more on top would make it feel less like background music. Also, consider adding in some sort of harmony or counterpoint.

Great potential, but as it is, I don't feel it's up to OCR standards.

More harmony eh?

I'll stick a double fugue in the middle, the counter subject will enter on the dominant followed by a sweet ass stretto passage into a rippen'- II6 German aug6 C64 V V7 I - cadencial pattern.

More harmony = more human.

I also don't feel like it's up to OCR standards.

I would agree with you on the back beat thing. I'm sure people want more Devil's lab melody instead of crazy break patterns made of radio static.

This time...

I did another pass of the track keeping all of your advice in mind. The following elements have been added.

- 2 new harmony elements from the source track
- More Devil's lab Back Beat less break core insanity
- More Structure
- A fun musical quote from FFVI
- Made some of the synths a bit more epic with Reaktor V and Max/Msp

Here is the Link: http://www.myspace.com/118311029

Let me know what you think!

Very tasty indeed. I like. Awesome industrial interpretation of a track that begs to be industrialized. Devil's Lab is more machine than man now....

I updated the track yet again.

-More Factory Sounds
-The Bridge section from Devil's Lab
-Removed a little more fancy break beat.

At this point I am willing to say I think it may be ready for submission. Consider that only 2 of the last 50 submissions have met the OCR standard I'd like to iron out as many kinks as possible. Please, more constructive feedback!
