"Man, I never thought I'd actually get around to sending a remix in...been a member for 2 years. Mega Man was definitely a series that I'd play over and over again, always loved the music...I always thought it could be more than beeps and bloops. Countless times, just sitting at the TV, popping in a controller and amusing one's self. I always thought about Mega Man II + III mainly...they just stick out as having some of the best music on the NES. About the remix, lots of stuff went into it, various VSTs, a ton of effects, crash cymbals, lots of drums....and it was all produced on FL Studio 10."
First off, congrats on submitting & getting posted; hopefully this can serve as another example to any lurkers, forumgoers, etc. that it's never too late to roll the dice & submit a mix! Personally, I was pretty happy listening to those original "beeps & bloops" - and still am - but Jacob's put together a sweet rock/chip 'Snake Man' groove that, as it happens, pays homage to & incorporates a lot of chiptune textures. There's also rock drums w/ shuffling hats, some cleaner, modern synth textures, and a bassline that - interestingly - only really actively contributes for the first half of the mix; the second half is more about dropouts & fluttering chip textures.

"This kind of has a halc meets WillRock feel to it, with some lofi stuff, some hifi, and some pretty cool and interesting drum patterns. Melodically it starts out pretty similar to the source, but it branches out in a unique direction and features a semi-solo, a breakdown, and a few bridge sections. The lead sounds I would have preferred to be slightly higher-grade sounding, but the track feels pretty charming, and i love the multiple layers of percussion, even if at times it feels a little looped. Transitions are solid, the arrangement was fun, and though there could stand to be a touch more polish, and a better ending, I think this brought it pretty well."
Well said; this isn't a wunderkind, omg-i-just-wet-my-pants debut mix, but it's solid, varied, expressive, and does the source justice with a good combination of textures & and an arrangement that doesn't sit on an autopilot beat but is instead brave enough to go more ambient in the second half. Good start from Jakesnke17 that establishes a foundation; here's hoping he builds on it in 2012!
