  1. Today
  2. Around a year ago i created a remix of a Turrican 1 track (which i posted here) which was followed by 2 other remixes from Turrican 2 (which I didn't posted here). Almost exactly 12 months later I started working on another Turrican Remix and today I present you the remix of one of my all time favourite game music tracks: Turrican's 2 Title Theme "The final Fight". (Original Track: Like in my former Turrican Remixes, I wanted to capture the exact same mood and "style" of the original track. I made no changes to the composition, everything is basically just like the original except for the instruments and the sound quality. I wanted a remix that sounds like the original but just with modern "capabilities". Although I highly enjoyed Hülsbecks remixes featured in his Turrican Soundtrack Anthology, i didn't felt like it came from the Amiga for me and thats what i tried to archieve with my remix. I actually wanted to create a proper remix of this track for a long time and finally decided to do one. Although the track was quite exhausting to remix, i had a lot of fun with it and i'm quite happy how it turned out, it's definitively one of my favourite creations and is my personal tribute to one of the greatest composers of all time: Chris Hülsbeck. In case you're interested in my other Turrican Remixes, here's a link to my soundcloud Turrican Remix Album:
  3. Listening again 13 years later. This song is still awesome.
  4. Oh my god the site is going to be 20 this year.
  5. I logged in just to say Man, this is definitely what I needed to relax after getting home from work on a Thursday night. Haven't heard a jazzy hit of this track since The One-Ups. Love it.
  7. Ok, so this preliminary section/rendition that I have posted at the bottom, I am mainly wondering about the "lead guitar". I don't know if it's up to par. I am going to have/already have more than this: I am concerned about elec guitar lead...Thanks!:) I already have/am going to have more than this snippet...and I know the balance is off. Curious about lead guitar:)
  8. Yesterday
  9. Phantasy Star IV needs moar representation. Nice ambient/electro remix there. Nice work m8, this is gr8 would rate 8/8. Loving the flutes and brilliant use of Sytrus Pads too!! Great percussion/drums. Man this is awesome. "Sakura Storm" kinda reminds me of Symphony of the Night in terms of aesthetic. Nice work! PS, I'm thinking of subb'ing my DIo Remix, I'll need to get it evaluated in the WIP forum first... But you can hear it on my Soundcloud!!
  10. My main influences while working on this arrangement were John Digweed and Crystal Waters, as this is a House music mix. In particular, the texture and rhythm of the bass line is inspired by Digweed's instrumental, "Heaven Scent," while the organ segment is inspired by Waters' signature song, "Gypsy Woman." Song Title: "The Red Cyclone" (Zangief Theme Remix) Originally Composed By: Yoko Shimomura BPM: 131 Style: House Hardware: iMac Software: GarageBand, Audacity The Red Cyclone Source Material: Zangief Theme (CPS1)
  11. Oh boy, yes! This is a true masterpiece. I've been listening to this track a lot since the album came out This is certainly one of my personal highlights of RotPL and just one of the best jams of Mr. Pretzel! I love playing this track when I'm in a good mood, and vice versa - pretty much every time I'm frown I put this track on repeat until I feel better, because this track is just... Pure happiness in musical form, I guess. I also love how this track is structured - you've got a nice tropical sonic journey sandwiched between mellower piano-led intro and outro, and that journey itself is quite an experience on it own - there're some straight-up joyful bouncy bits mixed with somewhat calmer parts, which are no less fantastic! The divesre instrumentation is also what makes me appreciate this piece so much - especially dig that sunny flute and groovy bass, haha. Huge kudos for this work, David <3
  12. I picked up Shreddage 3 Stratus so if anyone needs guitar stuff, lemme know. This is not dead yet, I WILL IT NOT TO BE DEEAADDDD!!!!
  13. Last week
  14. Wow that is actually pretty awesome. Doesn’t happen often. As for PAL I guess it might be around 100-115 or something. I don’t know. I’m pretty stocked the composer loves your work. Maybe Risto Vuoi might get a knack out of my stardust remix XD Still though I’m impressed. Congrats!
  15. There's also @Guifrog and @8 Bit Instrumental.
  16. Incredibly lucky indeed, when I’ve been through low times DDRKirby(ISQ) has been the only entity in this universe who’s music could lift me up again. Yes that may sound incredibly strange, but it’s the truth. So glad y’all enjoyed his latest hit!
  17. Alas, I do not speak Portuguese (google translate for the win), but I do know at least one Brazillian who remixes - Lulza. I think Txai is from there, as well, but I'm not 100% certain. Good luck, wish I could help more. Glad you found the site against all odds, lol.
  18. Olá, só criei esse tópico pra interagir um pouco com vocês, não sei dizer se muitos vão conseguir entender minha língua, afinal nao sei dizer mas temos fãs brasileiros aqui ? Remixers Brs ? Frequento o site desde 2011 e curto muito as competições e todos os projetos, infelizmente por aqui no brasil não sao muitas pessoas que conhecem o site. Mas temos alguns remixers brs, pelo menos, uhul. Enfim agradeço a atenção e é isso ai.
  19. Got a nice tweet from the original composer today - doesn’t happen very often but it’s definitely a nice feeling. I did my track at 128bpm and he said it was like NTSC speed... What bpm would PAL speed be?
  20. The world can only take so many Chrono Trigger arrange albums so this is a welcome relief. I dig it!
  21. I often close songs in the middle of super note-y solos, but every the "wankery" here was so stylish and well-placed. Fantastic job. Even better are the last 90 seconds. Absolutely sublime work.
  22. Eh, fuck it. I'll probably do a MIDI rip of the Roller Coaster Tycoon. That way everyone gets representationeruuuuuuuu dikfuk
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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?
