OCR00710 - Kabuki: Quantum Fighter 'USB MindLink'

Kabuki Quantum Fighter 'USB MindLink'

Abjurator, now if thats not a new name then I must have missed something. This isn't just a new name, but this is a new mix with an almost experimental ambient sound, that is, when the when the hard hitting techno beat isn't seething from your speakers. I love the ambient loop at the beginning and the end of this piece, and I really have to say, the part with the hammering beat a is no sluff either. This here is definatly one of the better techno pieces I've heard on this site, and very easy to dance to (believe me, I even tried.) Excellent work Abjurator, and yes, I want to hear more.

Nice job DJA. This game did deserve a remix. And a good remix it is. My favorite part is at about 1:30. I can almost see the guy whipping his hair. Man, I gotta go play that game.

I know there was a request for it in the forums a while back, were you answering to that?

Thanks Ryan8bit. I was not aware that anyone requested that a remix be done for this game, nor was I aware that this many people knew about the game. I have had long hair almost all my life, so when I first played the game, I can remember trying to whip things with my hair like the kabuki guy did in the game.... :P

I've never even heard of the game this game from, but ya know, I rather like this. In fact, I like it alot. I don't know if it's the melody or the variety or the samples or what, but it just hits me the right way, especially as the track proceeds. There's something very cool about it, but I don't know how to describe it. It's like one of those tracks that should be merely good, but is somehow great. Congrats on this flawless piece of art.

Bringing back memories

When I first heard this this song in it's original nes form I didn't really think of it much. I have to say this was an awesome remix of the song. It made me unbox my nes and pop in that good ol' Kabuki Quantum Fighters pak in. After fighting with the nes to get the game work (DAMN CARTRIDGES ) I cranked up this remix and actually played through the whole game. I hope to hear more remixes of this calibur from DJ Abjurator. Awesome work!

Excellent

Just played KQF earlier today and it rocks! But this remix rocks more! The original song , though its excellent, lacks content, but you have really packed some action in this version. Where is that string sounds from? Its almost identical to the one used by The Prodigy (Liam Howlett) in "Music for the jilted generation" album. Its a fantastic string sound. But it sure isn┤t the only fantastic thing in this song. Its excellent throughout. You managed to maintain the basic feeling of the game. A very good remix indeed.

Thanks for the kind review.

I used a simple GM-bank string sound and manipulated it with a sampler until it sounded right. Basically, I adjusted the attack and release rate, tweaked the cut-off and ressonance, then ran it through some reverb. Yummy.

*reviewing while listening*

nice introduction: starting creepy, growing happy
then at 0:52 here we go
oooh, at 1:04 is even better

nice change at 1:17 (it was better before, though)
at 1:30 is sad again
cool, 1:42 (and 1:56) for the win again
OMG drums at 2:08, and continue!!! a long cool section
at 2:30 the song is changing and the panning surround is awesome. good that I'm sitting otherwise I would fall down. oh, and at 3:00 some more drums.

let's go for the finale. 3:25 is a nice milestone

not so grand finale, imo.
maybe this song is too repetitive, 4:26 is a lot to fill with this simple melody

*closing review mode*

k, this is my first and last try at realtiming-review

It starts out somewhat repetative, but once the main melody comes in, it's a lot more interesting. There are enough mnor breakdowns and buildups to keep things from getting out of hand, but overall it seems to run a little on the long side.

THe synth used for the melody is very nice and slidey.
