  1. Hello. It is said the Pokémon composer, Junichi Masuda, was inspired by Koji Kondo's music. So, I had this idea of using the Zelda OoT Shop samples to rearrange the Pokémon Center theme in the same Cha-cha-chá style.
  2. Howdy. Could any of you change my name to Tex? Thanks.

    Post your Discord

    Oh, hey! To this day, I'm not sure if your username used to be "Meteor Xavier" or if I was just reading it wrong for a while back then. And yeah, that synth brass patch is so good. Love it. Aw, bummer. Hopefully you've been enjoying your stay in the forums, though 🙏 Hmm, personally, I prefer smaller servers so the chat won't get too busy for me. But that's just a personal preference.
  4. Post your Discord in this thread or add me (texturology#8079)! I love talking to new/old friends in a chatroom environment and have a good time \o/ I'm texturology, previously known as "Txai" if you're familiar.
  5. Hey, this has a "wandering in green pastures during sunrise" type of feel. Sounds beautiful! Dig the idea of each lead instrument representing one character, too.
  6. Howdy! I wonder if you can help me with a few name changes, if possible: my forum name to texturology (done! thanks, DS!) my OCReMixer handle on the site to texturology my SoundCloud URL in my OCR artist page to https://soundcloud.com/texturology my real name in my OCR artist page to Anderson Viegas Thank you for your time
  7. Congrats to Hunter Van Brocklin for winning with his entry "California Rose Gold Rush"! Check the first post for results.
  8. Ohh, I gotta say that this trailer's music is right up my alley. Those brass riffs, screaming guitar lead... omg, I love everything on this! Here's the full version
  9. Seth Skoda! Now that's a familiar name. I like your two tracks in An OverClocked Christmas XIII from last year 16-bit/44.1kHz sample rate is perfect, yeah. It's the standard for CD-quality audio.
  10. I am glad Sadorf has another finished remix with Sir_NutS, as I'm a big fan of A New Ray of Light from 2004. And this one takes me back to those times.
  11. http://zenkaudio.com/spc/ Sample Pack Contest is a series of original music-writing contests hosted via VGMusic.com that began in 2005, originally on VGMusic's forums and now on its Discord server. What is a Sample Pack Contest? Typically, the community is first asked to submit sound samples (in WAV format) which are collected and re-released in a ZIP archive of all the sounds: the "sample pack". Participants then use the sounds in creating and entering original songs, followed by a voting/commenting phase by the community to determine placing and the eventual winner. In this 11th edition of the series, All-Star Mashup, the current sample pack is made up entirely of sounds from the previous Sample Pack Contests. Sample Pack Contest XI has concluded! Thank you all for participating! Congratulations to Hunter Van Brocklin for winning with his entry "California Rose Gold Rush"! Full Contest Results + Votes & Commentary Here ( spreadsheet version ) The entire album is available on Bandcamp: https://samplepackcontest.bandcamp.com/album/sample-pack-contest-xi
  12. Bear in mind I have no saying in this decision. However, I'd like to drop a few thoughts. First because it's an interesting subject. And second, but most importantly, The Coop has always been friendly and approachable. And I wish him the best! As someone like you who is known for using sigs as means of showcasing visual prowess, this change feels like cutting down a long time beloved tree, doesn't it? Still, you're very talented. And I do hope your involvement with DeviantArt and alikes has been filling the void OCR couldn't fill for you anymore. Unfortunately, it's been years since there was a present and consistent sig making community on these boards. All you could witness recently were a bunch of untouched "June is Boss Month" sigs and such, which honestly gives the forums a sense of lack of updates and abandonment. Sure, sigs used to be a huge thing in the past. But you can't say they've even been a thing in the past 6 years or so. You're aware that in the past, there was no such thing as custom avatars. Everyone had to choose one from a curated gaming/anime/TV-film collection. But now not only you can have your own custom avatar (which can be a closer artistic expression of yourself more than ever), but it can even be animated if you wish. By this perspective, don't you feel this is a fair trade-off? But you do post in another forum where its community, which fostered sig culture like no other, grew older and don't use sigs anymore either. And that didn't stop you from being a part of it. In the end, our primary way of strengthening relationships and camaraderie is the exchange of thoughts. Although I admit making new friends here throught my own sig skills, this alone could not provide such strengthening. You're right. This is a music site. And that's how you've been labelling it all the way. Which means it's not a sig site, nor a visual arts site. Sigs do, however, bring memories associated with its posters and to a certain period in time you've been here. With that in mind, newer posters won't be able to have the experience of shaping said memory like you or I. Yet, this is a completely new community now with these social media platforms (come join us in the OCR Discord server, Coop!) on the side. So OCR members might be shaping other kind of experiences lately and sigs haven't been a part of it. I'm as nostalgic as you, though. And I'd love to witness a new bunch of artists making neat looking sigs to new other regulars. It would give me warm goosebumps!
  13. Congrats to both of you! Nice to see familiar faces recently getting devoted to one of the core tasks of this community. Now, I know this forum became as active as a ghost town in the past 5 years. But I thought there would be a warmer reception for such an important announcement. Come on, guys!
  14. Welcome to the forums, @Vlok ! @Gario is right And there are other names I can add to the list. BrainCells Dr. Manhattan Hetcenus (got 3 remixes in Project Chaos) Leandro Abreu and friends Red Tailed Fox
  15. It's with profound sadness that I announce the passing of DJ Redlight (Ashley Carr) on October 26th of 2016. He was from Australia and only 30 at the time. I was recently informed of this news after stumbling across his Facebook Artist Page. Here's an excerpt written by a personal friend: Although I never spoke to him, I do have warm memories of burning CDs with a couple of his remixes in. . Both were also used in Extra Credits episodes here and there. His existing work is already formidable enough to make him a relevant name in the world of fan game music communities. Thank you for being a part of my early years at OCR, Ash.
  16. Zircon recommended this book a while back. It's a little dated by now in a technological sense, But I hope it helps you develop the business mindset you need.
  17. Props to DarkeSword for bringing GRMRB back. Looking forward to what everyone comes up with!
  18. Made a couple more since then, so might as well share them here.
  19. I'm pleasantly surprised that djpretzel and the judges decided to post this, given their high standards. And it's neat that José has taken over as director, given how much of a Sega fan he is. One of my initial influences was Afro's, Arps and Minimoogs by Galaxy 2 Galaxy. Then, I thought of new ideas to keep the song cohesive as it progressed. There are a few things I would do differently. But in the end, I think it still pays proper tribute to the original and I'm glad people feel the same! Be sure to check out the other artist's tracks in the album once it releases.
  20. Did you used to have a Ninja Gaiden sig/avatar?
  21. The discussion panel in http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR03664 leads to an unrelated thread.
