    Actually it's 4/4, just with a swing feel, so everything follows a triplet 8th note pattern. You could also notate it as 12/8.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I present you the very first Super Black Bass 3 remix! Jk, but this seems to be an obscure SNES title. I couldn't even find the individual track on youtube, let alone other remixes of it. Didn't see anything on this site either, but I could've missed something. I've never played this game, but I stumbled upon the track while listening through a relaxing SNES music compilation by SNES Drunk (highly recommended), and I thought I could do something with it. Classic remake with a few of my own touches and some ambiance. I really enjoyed this track, and gave the OST a listen and found a few gems. If you like SNES music, it's definitely worth a try: If anyone out there wants to build/collab on this, let me know and I can provide my stems. Seems like there's a lot of solo/freestyle potential in this track! I'm also trash with drums (just used basic FL Studio loops), so I'm sure anyone could improve. Hope someone enjoys my rendition or at least finds a cool new (old) OST! -Juke

    ALBUM PROJECT: Paths Less Travelled: Secret of Evermore Project Director: Trism Assistant-Director & Visual Artist: Drawn by Dai FINAL COMPLETED SUBMISSION DEADLINE: TBC PROPOSED ALBUM RELEASE: TBC Current Remixers: NyxTheShield, Jean Of mArc, Clement Panchout, HoboKa, rebrained, Manji, djpretzel, LongBoxofChocolate, brink-of-time, AstralTales, about:blank Current Performers: Sound Designers/Audio Support: Chimpazilla - PROJECT CONCEPT - Howdy folks, we’re back! Hot on the heels of the previous album, we’re raring to go at another. We’re doing Paths Less Travelled Volume 2! For those who missed the first instalment, PLT is a series of albums paying homage to overlooked and underrated games from yesteryear. Whether it be from poor marketing, limited localisation or plain bad timing, we celebrate the gems that undeservedly missed the limelight. Volume 1 covered a little-known game, released only in Asia & Europe, named Terranigma and was RELEASED in December 2019. The game we’ll be bringing to the forefront this time is: Secret of Evermore is an RPG released on the SNES by Squaresoft on October 1, 1995. With gameplay and a menu system reminiscent to the hugely successful Secret of Mana, it featured real-time battles, ring-shaped displays, and the ability to switch control between characters. This is where similarities ended. Unlike its similarly-named cousin, Secret of Evermore is unique in that it is the only game developed by Squaresoft of America, a small studio beholden to the Japanese parent company. Secret of Evermore was their first and only title. It did not receive a release in Japan. While the game was generally very well received by reviewers upon its release, it was criticised for not being even similar to Secret of Mana in story or art direction, an expectation likely exacerbated by their similar game titles. Secret of Evermore is a curiously dark tale following a cinema-obsessed boy and his dog as they fight their way through a virtual world gone awry, filled with characters and locations from the neolithic era to the far future. Think The Goonies x Last Action Hero x Bill and Ted in 90’s RPG form. And the dog can shapeshift. You should play it. This game also marks the debut of Jeremy Soule, who got the job straight out from composition studies on the back of a demo cassette. Jeremy has gone on to score and compose music for modern classics Neverwinter Nights, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (amongst many, many others). His debut directly utilises environmental and ambient soundscapes to emphasise the feelings of loneliness and exploration. This technique was hardly ever implemented in gaming at the time; and was used to great effect alongside the more traditional music to be expected in an RPG; using the sound of nature to actively enhance an already atmospheric score. Here is a link to the selected soundtrack. The track order has been randomised: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLKu09f66XIaTvXnXFQUPFQvY0NoxjlcpL And here’s a link to the midi files. Unfortunately they have slightly different titles: https://www.khinsider.com/midi/snes/secret-of-evermore - WHAT WE NEED - GENERAL ROLES ▪Arrangers/Remixers: This is where the bulk of the recognisable work will be. We need folks to claim tracks and conjure them into beautiful remixes. ▪Live Musicians: Performers who are experienced with any type of instrument and have a high-quality recording setup. We would like to get quality live performers on remixes in every instance where remixer's sample quality “isn’t quite there”. Put simply, there are Quality Control standard requirements for the official OCR stamp ▪Audio Support: We may also require people to provide part input or collaborate with remixers who are struggling for any reason BOARD ROLES •Environmental FX Person: Secret of Evermore was notable for its atmospherics and natural sound. We need ONE person to create approximately 6 audio tracks that are based entirely around environmental and ambient sound. These tracks will be fed and woven throughout the album. This is NOT a first-come-first-served position. Experienced applicants only please. Please don’t be shy, but at the same time this is an imperative role. •Sound Engineers/Audio Support: We need folks skilled in balancing, mixing and mastering for the project. We found with the previous instalment that having one person oversee the final phase of all the tracks produced a very sympathetically tuned album where every track had an even field to perform on. We’d like it to be the same again. Can you do this? If you're interested in contributing to one or more of the above areas, please get in touch with us. - THE SPECIFICS - Claiming & Auditioning: All remixers wishing to claim a track should PM me or Drawn by Dai, or comment on the thread about any they are interested in and we'll go from there. If you are not a posted remixer, please PM some of your completed work. It needn't be a remix, but something that demonstrates the quality of your skills. Once a track is claimed, a first deadline will be set that is reasonable. We're keeping it casual at the moment, stricter requirements will be implemented as the project progresses. While we want to do this right, there’s no pressure early on. However. If nothing is heard from you in a reasonable time after contact is attempted, you will be dropped from the project and your track will revert to ‘unclaimed’. Genre Guidelines: There is no genre one should adhere to when remixing tracks for the album, A central theme in the album, as with the game, will be the use of environmental effects. You are NOT required to use any of that stuff in any way, but we WOULD like your blessing to allow us to implement some at the mixing stage. Now hold on! We very well may not, but if we do, it will be with soundscapes created specifically for the album; and used both sympathetically and subtly, to convey a greater sense of atmosphere to the album overall. If you’ve got a specific idea for a track, by all means run it by us, We’re open to ideas. Flexible Deadlines: Deadlines will be handled on a case-by-case basis at first, and based on the preference of the remixer, we're not trying to rush things here. Try to maintain contact with us, We know things are scary in the world at the moment. We’re really easy. - CORE TRACK LIST - Black - Unclaimed Track Red - Track Claimed, no submission Orange - Concept Submitted Yellow - WIP submitted Green- Significant WIP submitted Blue - Finished Track submitted Purple - Finished and Mastered Track Main Title Storekeepers Boss Theme 2 Pirates of Crustacia - djpretzel Elephant Graveyard - Manji Boss Theme 1 - HoboKa Fire Eyes - about:blank Intro Credits - Jean Of mArc Freak Show!

    Yoooo, welcome back! I absolutely loved this remix when it was posted (I still throw it on from time to time) and I'm excited to hear what you can do with 10 more years of experience under your belt. I'll be keeping an eye on this!

    Super Black Bass 3 - Intro Theme [Remix]

    OK so I was trying to do this track justice with some drums, but it's so beautiful and natural sounding that I wasn't getting too far. Instead I came up with this... I just love your piece Juke, this is just a bit of fun Those flute samples sound incredible btw. Pretty much indistinguishable from a live performance.

    It allows 14. I handed the different parts, minus the bass, around the different "machines" placed in the app. I wanted to get a little bit of a feel for each one...and each of them are stripped down versions of full synths, such as a saw, FM, subtractive, etc. It's called Caustic, and it is free to try, minus export and saving on Android. There is also a version you can download for windows which is completely functional. It's a fun thing to doodle with, and I think it will help me learn on a full DAW as well:)

    If nobody else enters, when the deadline is over, i will give the choice to HoboKa, depending if he's doing his entry as a bonus or a real submission.

    It's what's call a shuffle groove. You essentially putting in 4 quarter notes within a 3/4 time signature. Different from a poly-rhythm where it's 4 beats against 3 beats, since this is all quarter notes. I think Dex did a better job explaining than me lol.

    It's the drum pattern. It's tough to work with. It isn't 4/4 so that rules out n00bs like me who want to actually remix it rofl. At least I got it sounding OK. It sounds 3/4. Is that right? Or am I trippin'?

    A bit of an odd one. This source should be popular enough to garner some interest.... But i guess not.

    I agree with Souperion here - there's a lot going on and it all sounds very crowded. You can see the waveform of the audio in the bottom left - it's very similar the whole way through, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but listening all the way through is quite tiring on the ears because there are no break sections. The frequency spectrum in the top right is virtually maxed out on all frequencies the whole time too. It feels like one 3+ minute long section, so you should maybe try and break it up a little so that the listener doesn't fatigue before the end.

    Storm Eagle! Huzzah. Really like your variations on this classic gem. The piano and synth bells are a nice choice of instrumentation, a pleasing contrast to the guitar elements. I'd experiment with the EQ and/or compression of this, the sound of the synths do sound a little crowded, if that makes any sense. Still, I like what you've done here, nice work!

    Super Black Bass 3 - Intro Theme [Remix]

    Excellent as always. I do love how easily you can work that Zelda's Lullaby into... just about everything I've heard you share on this forum. Your stylistic approach to remixing is elegant and enriching, do keep it up!

    Super Black Bass 3 - Intro Theme [Remix]

    Wow, this is beautiful! I absolutely love remixing tracks from obscure/under-represented games (check my remix history), so this got my attention immediately. Beautiful instrumentation, and the riverside ambience definitely evokes a chilled out afternoon fishing for some delicious bass. The drums aren't as clean as the rest of it, but if you wanted to go down the lofi route then they're not bad at all. Love the smattering of Zelda's Lullaby in there too, it fits perfectly. Awesome stuff! Hope you get it to a place where you can submit it. If you want some better drum samples, maybe I can record something for you. Would be fun to see a Super Black Bass 3 remix on OCR

    Yo! It has been a long time since I made an arrangement for Street Fighter music. This is Juri's Theme. There is quite intense parts in the middle...had fun recording guitars :). This is the original soundtrack: How do you feel about it overall? Mixing balance and other stuff that comes to mind.

    The first 30 seconds hooked me. Aspects of wonder, mystique, and a bit of intrigue nicely woven together with an enthralling and restrained energy. Yup, I can see the beginning credits right now.... ah, that's lovely. Good work!

    What are you up to these days?

    Best wishes for our suffering musicians out there. And maybe the rest of the world while things sort out. Regardless of whether or not things are being done right about this pandemic, I hurt for those really struggling from this abnormal situation. A full transition to online college classes was not in my spring plans, but it's a negligible complaint. At least studies keep one busy. When neglecting that, it's back to FL Studio, Starcraft 2, or other computed time vacuums. I find it somewhat amusing to be part of this fascinating demographic that can, in response to "what have you been up to during quarantine," say "oh, produced about X novice remixes." And hey, for what it's worth, if any of you are struggling with musical motivation, drop a piece by at the workshop forum. I'll be lurking around there to try and put in a few good words.

    just gonna chime in here and list what I use: MAIN RIG: Neumann KH120 + KRK Rokit 10s sub (medium sized room with a bit of treatment and a lot of odd angles) SECONDARY RIG: Kali Audio LP-6 (small, boxy bedroom, but lots of furniture so is reasonably dead) The Kali Audio LP-6 set is some of the VERY BEST bang-for-buck I've heard, at least from my initial listens. Super clean for the price. I love my Neumanns, and I plan on never getting rid of them. I've been able to mix some great stuff on em. My Kali set is brand-new and I'm still evaluating them, but the sales rep who steered me away from Genelec and into the Neumann set -- who has turned out to be completely correct -- was singing the praises of these Kalis quite effusively, and thus far I'm finding that they sound great. Have yet to do a proper mix, so I'll report back on that whenever that happens. Here's some example tracks from my Neumann+KRK setup:

    OCR04075 - *YES* Faxanadu "Faxanadoom"

    Honestly, I see this as a neat genre adaptation. The performances are tight, the guitar tones both electric and unplugged are expressive, the drum writing never sticks around in one place, and the palette as a whole has this raw garage sound to it. Yes, this track does have more of a bass presence and not so much on the highs, but I didn't sense any glaring frequency overlaps either and can consider this an intentional alt-rock sound that fits its intended purpose. And yes, the arrangement is minimal, but it's just the melody maintained as it is while the bass does its own thing, and the added rhythm guitars/synth work contributes some fun textures that also shake up through the track's duration. The sustained aesthetic in the second variation felt ominous, the bit-crushed breakdown at 1:23 was out of leftfield, and the half-time drums at 2:17 shaped up an impressive audible climax. I think it set out to tread the fine line between conservative arranging and thoughtful interpretation, and that's impressive on its own. So yes, it's a gritty sound and minimal arrangement that may not fly with everyone, but I didn't sense anything glaring, so both sides squeaked over the bar for me. But I do hope you take what you've learned from this experience and see where you can push yourself for future submissions. Please stick around! YES (borderline)
