  1. Past hour
  2. I'm afraid I agree with the above 100%. The sax parts are really good, but everything else, including the backing during the sax parts, is way too conservative, too repetitive, and too static. NO
  3. Today
  4. Aside from changing the rhythms a bit, Kyle, this was extremely straightforward and ultimately repetitive; once you hear the rhythmic changes to the melody, that's the only interpretation you hear without any further variations. Very anti-climactic addition of that countermelodic line at :59; if you're looking for a super-close cover, that's all good, but since we're looking for more interpretation, that was a pretty bland approach. Then repeating it at 1:29 was another drag; the track's relatively slowly paced, so when you wholesale repeat bars at this tempo and with textures this thin, it's pretty boring. Dropoff at 2:00 led to SA's smoove sax work, but the beats behind that were just thin and plodding; the texture gradually thicken up at 2:15 and emerging more at 2:26, but the overall pattern is still so straightforward and plain. The beats here didn't add any movement, and as soon as I was thinking that, something more substantive came in at 2:46, which was a good, albeit late, addition. The finish was just more of the same stuff from the opening. Sorry that I can't be more positive on this, because it's a classic theme and a great choice, plus Andrew's sax contribution was strong. But right now there's really bland beats, barebones textures, and a plodding arrangement; there's some development, but not enough. You don't have to get crazy and wild with the level of interpretation, but there's not ENOUGH variation/personalization of the theme, and dynamically this is too flat. You can keep SA's sax performance intact but figure out other ways to further develop this concept. NO
  5. I am inexperienced with this sort of thing, but with the cymbals, would it be possible to eq out some of the low end (Ha, low end of cymbals), so you have more of a "shimmer" type of sound, instead of an aggressive percussive sound on them? Sounds nice overall:) As for the ending you possibly could "calm into" a lightly arranged major chord pattern/arpeggio/pad, with F in the bass, and an F major chord in the treble as the base of your arranged pattern, perhaps with a 6th or 7th added in for flavor, giving a picardy third kind of vibe?:) Oh, one more thing I just thought of...on the snare, perhaps you might like the sound of a brush snare (the kind you hear in soft jazz) instead of a standard snare?
  6. I like the textures and layering here. The main saw synth is not that great alone but when layered with the lower bass notes it sounds pretty fat. None of the sounds used are out of place to me and complement each other pretty well. The arrangement is sadly not up to the task though. It's super repetitive and barebones, and follows the original pretty closely. The structure lacks dynamism as well, the initial two minutes are pretty basic and static and only a while later we do get to hear the original melody. It just feels like this could've been shortened without losing much and also the arrangement could've been expanded way more than what we got here. NO
  7. ok. i had a gameboy when i was 5 or 6, with just 2 games, tmnt 2 and dr. mario. i played and won the hardest level in dr. mario really early. i never beat the final boss in turtles. a friend of mine had megaman, which struck me as a particularily hard core game. don't think i finished a single stage, but then again i never had it for myself. i remember liking the music. when i was 11, i got a pocket game boy i pretty much exclusively played link's awakening on, often in school during breaks. thinking about it, i always got every console and very little games. my dad always liked gadgets, so he ended up buying them with me in mind, but he wasn't interested in getting me a lot of games. i had enough to play so i didn't complain. 2 game boys, 1 game gear, a mega drive, an old 386 with commander keen 1-6 among others, and finally my cherished snes.
  8. Yesterday
  9. Not expecting it to blow me away at all, but when that Squirtle came out of the water I squealed internally like I haven't since maybe the first Hobbit trailer like, 7 years ago.
  10. Can you allow downloads? Then I can try to get it on ThaSauce.
  11. Results time YorkshireLakeside gathered 9 points, but ends with the last place wooden spoon. TheVideoGamer collected 10 points and ends with second place. PlanarianHugger is the winner with 14 points!!. PlanarianHugger, you are the winner and may pick a source for PRC392. Send the source to me (with a MID/MP3 file, otherwise send a second source with a MID file) by PM, other options are PM me @ ThaSauce or by e-mailing to bambombim@gmail.com (I prefer a PM @Ocremix). Send your sources as fast as you can, but before next Monday (6 May 2019), 11:00 AM ThaSauce time (18:00 UTC, 19:00 GMT). You may select any source from any game, but not a source with an OverClocked remix or a source which has been used in PRC before. An overview of the past PRC's can be found in the following links (I recently updated this site): http://sites.google.com/site/bambombim/prc http://bambombim.googlepages.com/PRCRemixList.doc (also downloadable via the link above).
  12. yes imagine an album all work in the games of the series, not even to imagine the perfection of it, "use your head" tommy talarico would say kk. seriously as a fan would very much like someone to be willing to take such a project. would be very accomplished
  13. Lots of good music for it. Just keep in mind that a few of the EWJ tracks are Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata (multiple movements), so one wouldn't be able to submit those specific tracks to OCR specifically, but considering they're well inside public domain it'd be hilarious to hear remixes of those tracks on an album regardless, lol. Such strange games, such good OSTs, I definitely approve. If anyone gets those rolling, they should get in touch with Tommy Tallarico; he's namedropped OCR in VG concerts he's held in the past, he would probably super appreciate such a project.
  14. I could see this working. It needs an epic boss remix for ... Bob the Killer Goldfish, lol.
  15. Maaaaaaaybe slightly cautiously hopeful that it won't be as bad as I originally thought it might be. Maybe.
  16. $130 US is like, $170 CAN these days. That's a bit above my budget for games. But any way. GameBoy. 30 years.
  17. i paid around the same for a device to write on and load from cartridge 10 years ago, just to have backups in case my little sound dj cart failed...it connected via this huge pin connector the old printers used. and it was sloooow. $130 is not thaat much for such a niche product.
  18. https://krikzz.com/store/home/46-everdrive-gb.html https://stoneagegamer.com/everdrive-gb-x7-base.html https://www.amazon.com/EverDrive-GB-Ultimate-version-Nintendo-Game-Color/dp/B074YJ7VSN Goes from $130 to $190, so... not quite multiple hundreds, but pretty damn close.
  19. I'm thinking, Earthworm Jim is a classical, eternal soundtracks for the great Tommy T. And why that great game, dosen't have a project album? Just like a fan, i here to suggest the ideia, we not have any album, little bit remixes, let me see how many fans we have for this ideia. Thanks

    Just a question

    maybe it's the chrome browser, I'll try to download another one to test, I've never had this problem with the downloads

    Just a question

    @Rozovian I tried with several remixes, from the most recent to the oldest, and the three mirrors are not downloading, I navigate through the chrome on my cell phone, I can not do it at all.
  22. I’ve done another slightly different mix if you want to add it as a bonus track... unless it allows me to do it. Just not sure because what I like might not be what other people like. Would be interested in feedback.
  23. I tested a little bit: https://ocremix.org/remix/OCR03894 I noticed the blueblue.fr link having some issue for this track. I didn't get "waiting for network" but the track never loaded. I tried an older mix, and no problem there for that mirror: https://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01219 So it might be something with recent uploads on blueblue.fr. But you say all three links have this problem for you? Which remixes did you try this with? Do you have the same problem with old remixes and new ones? What phone OS, what browser? iOS, android? Safari, Firefox, Chrome, something else?
  24. Last week
  25. Don't bang me - I promise I'm up to date!
  26. I'll see if we can get one of those to the office..
  27. ??? They aren't that expensive. Not chump change, but not like hundreds of dollars either.
