    A couple years ago, I released Zest Quest, an original album about fruit planets. Since then, I’ve decided to make more music set in the same universe, and I just released number 2! Expedition to PL21-13 It contains a mishmash of retro sounds with an emphasis on things that sounded purple to me, paired with a story about unpaid interns searching a swampy alien planet for a robot sent by their ancestors hundreds of years ago. If you’re into flavor text, there's a full description on Bandcamp, and the album download comes with a 5-page PDF of log entries. The original concept for the album had no narrative context...but it turned out that giving it a story and connecting it to Zest Quest unleashed a rush of motivation. Now I’m looking forward to all the possibilities for fleshing out this universe. Hope you enjoy!

    Hey I opened Ableton and... thought about the arrangement, for at least ten minutes It's something! The easiest, fastest, and most fun approach is to turn my relatively sad/somber source into, well.... something funky, and even a little disco.

    Do you have specific things in mind regarding coordination? As far as mix progress goes, The Earth is basically done and I'm finishing up on Last Decisive Battle, which will hopefully be done within a week or so. I can send you current WIPS for both if you want.

    Alright, I admit I've been distracted for the past few weeks working on other OCR staff projects behind the scenes, so I've neglected to properly follow up on the last WIP update. I see the next one has passed, so because this was on the head of the directors I'm pushing the last two dates back by three weeks. It won't happen again, folks, so be thankful for the breathing room. I am literally not allowed to delay this project again (it will likely simply be cancelled if it's on delay again), so please take these dates seriously even if I'm slow on updating the thread. @Moseph and @Ivan Hakštok need to get in touch with me - I would like to coordinate with you two about your tracks, since they're quite important. I also gotta bug DjP 'bout his track in a bit, but that's just project tradition. I also have to get my tracks finished, because... well, yeah.

    Where to edit forum sig?

    Hmm, I'm kinda surprised no one responded to this. It actually is a fair question as I've been here for 15 years and I still have to go looking for how to change my signature stuff every time I want to change it, and that process can change as well. 1. Top right of the webpage where you see your chicken picture and "thebitterroost". 2. Click it and go to "account settings" under "settings". 3. Left side of the page in the gray border. "Signature". There you go. Didn't used to be that easy, so I totally respect that you had trouble finding it.

    As a bass player, I super super dig the electric bass on this. I can just see some full-suited, sweating Italian session player with a 60's Fender jazz bass, squished inside the pit alongside all the other musicians, trying his absolute best to stick to the notation while everyone else gets cooler parts than him. A consummate pro. This remix is awesome.

    I don't think I even want to say a lot here. "Epic" is just a huge understatement when it comes to describing this remix. Simply one of those tracks that make the chills run down my spine. Incredible job, everyone!

    omg we actually nearly did what this post suggested - release the SD3 album for OCR's anniversary - but we missed it by a decade, lol. Can't wait for the actual 20th anniversary - glad I've been along for the ride for about 11+ years, myself.

    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?

    This is quite a toe-tapper. Absolutely get a "Graceland" vibe. This kind of mixing of multiple hi-mid instruments is something I struggle with, so I'm impressed by that as well.

    I enjoyed your arrangement. I can hear that you largely remained faithful to the original song structure rather than add a bevy of new measures, and extensive solos, and I appreciate that choice. The fiddle is a nice touch, as is the flute. Overall, a well composed arrangement. Good job!

    Detective Pikachu: The Movie

    Not quite sure what I was expecting from the Sonic trailer given people's highly exaggerated negative reaction to it (we have wars going on with child soldiers that aren't getting this kind of reaction) but that wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. And I can't hate any video game adaptation that managed to get Jim Carrey as the villain.

    Beginning of the year? Man, I'm almost there in the inbox! In all seriousness I apologize that we're that behind, on that front. I'm definitely missing out, though, since this is a pretty... Cool? Chill? Whatever pun we want to use, it's pretty neat. I think it'll have a fair shake on the panel when it gets there (which will be soon, I've been working my buns off cleaning up that inbox). Looking forward to getting to this one, I've gotta say.

    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

    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.

    Ads on OC ReMix YouTube Channel

    We're proceeding with this action for all videos and will see how it goes; we are equally concerned about diversifying support for the site AND also the promotion/marketing angle, since we believe YouTube highlights monetized content more aggressively (or, if you prefer, tends to de-emphasize non-monetized content)

    OCRA-0069 - Arcadia Legends

    THAT is so awesome. Wow. Warms my heart, haha. One of my all time favorite games, and really probably my favorite game ever that never got a sequel (okay, it got a remake, but still!). Hopefully the composers of the game will get their hands on a copy somehow.

    The Legend of Zelda: Melting Pot

    Hey there! I have been listening to ReMixes for quite long, but I’m writing here for the first time to talk about an album concept I thought of (maybe it isn't the right place to do it, don't hesitate to tell me if so). Nothing really weird, and probably not so original an idea, but still. TLoZ has beloved themes and the series is probably already quite favored by ReMixers. BotW came and almost went, giving on the way more depth and some new characters to the lore of various already well-established hyrulean races (even seemingly incompatible ones). This made me wish to be able to listen some specific Zelda mashups/medleys. Hence this album concept (even if Zelda games are actually prone to feature quite the opposite to melting pots): I would love to hear a set of mashups/medleys of songs respectively related to the different hyrulean tribes from various games of the series. For instance: Zoras: Zora’s domains, Sidon’s theme, Mipha’s theme, Great Bay Coast, Ballad of the Wind Fish (MM), New Wave Bossa Nova, Rutela’s wish etc. Gorons: Daruk’s theme, Yunobo’s theme, Goron Cities, Goron Mines, Goron’s Lullaby, etc. Hylians: Zelda’s Lullaby, Ballad of the Goddess, Hyrule Castle, etc. Gerudo: Riju’s theme, Urbosa’s theme, Gerudo Town, Gerudo Valley, Gerudo Desert, etc. Rito: Revali’s theme, Teba’s theme, Dragon Roost Island, Medli’s prayer, etc. Sheikah: Sheik’s theme, Kakariko (at least the one from BotW), Impa’s farewell, Hidden Village, etc. Koroks/Kokiri: Encounters with the Deku Tree, Kokiri Forest, Lost Woods/Saria’s song, Forest Haven, Korok Forest, Hestu’s Dance, etc. I think you see what I mean… Obviously, this list is not exhaustive and could include other candidates even if they are quite specific to one game (Twili, Loruleans, Minish, and I'm not even talking about Skyward Sword ancient species) or even weirder stuff (Dragons, mixing songs related to the ancient dragons from SS, the dragon theme from BotW and Dragon Roost Island…). Would anyone be interested in this idea?

    Yeh, cuz I get to try new stuff without thinking to hard. and it keeps me sharp. When you remix, you tap into two different target audience (or one audience that gets split into two)... one for the original songs audience, and one for your remix(es). Not that it is not the case that neither audience cant be fans of your original music, its just that they came primarily for a remix. Remixes can build an audience for your original music if your sound resonates to something good through all your works, but you gotta build an audience for your original music separately as well (in my (flexible) opinion). I noticed that if you have a good original base, they will appreciate any remix you have, as long as the sound you have resonates to the sound they became of fan of (if you understand what I mean).

    Maybe this is the wrong reason but my primary reason for remixing was always to get an audience for my music. I succeeded, got a small following on Youtube, came to OCR and used it to improve my craft. I've been doing this for 10 years, I've got about... 80 Remixes under my belt? Probably more. It could be approaching the 3 digit mark. I've got 50 remixes on OCR, thats a nice round number imo. I don't have any incentive to remix anything atm. I'm doing my original work, I wanna become more known for that in the long term and my remixes still eclipse what I do musically. Never say never but remixing is certainly not something on my to do list and probably won't ever be again. I mean... I say that now and one day i'll probably throw an album together of links awakening remixes you know? That said, right now,I have no interest. Give me a few years, maybe i'll get back into it

    The Great Video Game Orchestra

    It's not traditional to have guitar in an orchestra, but it works. Sometimes you just need that guitar sound, especially with video game music (see Video Games Live with Tommy Tallarico). Your covers are pretty good! My favorite is Dragon Roost Island.

    I don't know these sources and I see that my fellow judges have gone over them in great detail, and I thought it would be fun to listen to the track in isolation before listening to the sources at all. What a cool track this is! Totally immersive. The mixing is just right for what it is trying to achieve, every element has it's place and nothing overstates itself. The arrangement is dynamite. Completely enjoyable track, great work! YES
