    • i am sure that frank zappa on his synclavier in the late 80s could have done a cool OST for pretty much any game. it would've been interesting, at any rate. he did the bedroom producer thing atleast 10 years before any of us. only that it cost  $100.000++++ back then. the synclavier had its own qualities and intricacies that are incomparable with later tech, i guess (i heard it`s more like resynthesis), but basically, it`s soundfont v0.1.   we have way too many options. we really only need time and experimentation. i mean, if you wanna do it with heart. if you wanna do it with speed, you need the libraries. easy, right?  
    • I really like the metal feel of this.  I hope to find more like this!
    • https://youtu.be/7D_VAET_Hnc During the making of any remix/cover I do, I mainly want the listeners to recognize the song and hopefully start to get some memories from the past. The same goes with this one.  Hydrocity Zone is such a cool song (both act 1 and 2), I really love the funky grooves, which I also tried to keep through about a minute of my remix. So you will most likely recognize it a bit before I go loose on creativity and extension of the original melodies. There will be some solos and then some ambient part resulting in a half tempo ending. I just write the music as I hear it in my head and keep going with the flow. This is what came to mind this last week. The intro SFX is intended to sound like Sonic starting to roll to gain that ridiculous speed. I searched through the SFX list from Sonic 3 and believed this is the correct sound of that. Until today I was thinking a lot of putting some harmonizing melodies to the original ones, but I went for "less is more" this time and just kept one at a time lead synth to play all melodies.
    • [This is an automatically generated message] I've reviewed your remix and have returned it to Work-in-Progress status, indicating that I think there are some things you still need to work on. After you work on your track and feel that it's ready for submission to OCR, please change the prefix back to Ready for Review and someone will review it again. Good luck!
    • Evaluation:  For starters, let me just start out by saying welcome to the community. You have very solid production values here, samples executed cleanly and mixed down well. 0:12 was that Megaman X buster charging sound effect??  I like how your beat and the bassline work together to be a cohesive unit. 1:15 is exactly where you should be going with this, excellent mini-solo and interpretation on the theme. So what's the problem?  The length of the track.  There's a lot to work with in the original that can be developed or expanded upon.  While we do get some cool solo at 1:11-1:33, I don't feel that it's enough for a piece that's only 1:56 and is very stylistically similar to the original.  You even use the orchestral hits just like in the original.  In the submission standards it says section 1. Format: What could work is if you really expand out some more interpretation on the themes and ideas from the original to help extend the length more and show even more of your own take on it.  It's a solid start thus far, and I look forward to seeing what you can do with it.  Work on those things and check back in.
