  1. Hello OCR Forum goers! A bit of an update, recording is done, artwork is done, we are currently mixing/mastering. Expect a launch by late summer/early fall!
  2. Thanks Clem! Definitely seems to be a coloration, I agree! Chrono Trigger no doubt pushed me towards improvised/jazz music, and to eventually directing this album! Keep an eye out for our next album!
  3. Hey Everyone! So life gets in the way of big plans more often then not, but some exciting news for the community! The OC Jazz Collective is WELL into production of this album. We've got your favourite artists and arrangers such as.... @XPRTNovice @DrumUltimA @Bowlerhat @Fratto @JohnStacy @Nostalvania @audio fidelity @Damashii!! @Wiesty Anthony Lofton And more guest arrangers and artists!!! We've currently got 9/10 tracks written and being recorded, from your favorite SNES era video games. Our goal is to have the album out for you by November, 2020!!! Need something to wet your whistle in the meanwhile?

  5. I've been on the Yamaha MSP7s for a few years now. Very nice and transparent monitors to mix on.
  6. [This is an automatically generated message] I've reviewed your remix and have set it to Completed status, indicating that I think your remix is ready to be submitted to the Judges Panel. Congratulations! If you feel like you still need to work on your track and want more feedback, you can change the prefix back to Work-in-Progress and we'll go through the review process again. If you decide to submit your track, please change the prefix to Submitted after sending your email. Thank you!
  7. Hey Chernabogue! Mix seems much more solid! I will say that the lead guitar at 2:24 and 3:25 seem a bit buried now, so those can come up maybe a tad! But now I'm being picky. Rhythm guitar parts seem much more blended. Go ahead and submit!
  8. [This is an automatically generated message] I've reviewed your remix and have returned it to Work-in-Progress status, indicating that I think there are some things you still need to work on. After you work on your track and feel that you'd like some more feedback, please change the prefix back to Ready for Review and I'll review it again! Good luck!
  9. Definitely giving me some Marilyn Manson vibes with the vocals here! Interesting take on already dark sounding source! Eval: Nice work exploring the material and keeping the original mood! I like the guitar loop. It gives everything a heavy feel, and is an interesting take on the original bass line. The breakdown sections are nice and provide a bit of a relief from the onslaught of heavy distortion and drums, A few sections feel a little long to me. For example at 3:47-4:28 we get that one phrase repeated many, many times without much variation. This can really start to cause listener fatigue. I would recommend shortening sections like these, or adding in new colours or variations sooner to keep momentum moving forward. After a few listens I still couldn't hear variations on the final section of the source (the part that goes into the weird time signature, 7/8 maybe?). You don't have to include ALL of the source material, but it would definitely help from keeping things from going stale. Production wise it mostly sits well with me. I think the stereo spread could use some work. It sounded like there was a huge build up of instruments in the center with the sides being mostly drums. This can make for a weird mix. I noticed it less as I listened, so either my ears are getting fatigued or its not a big deal. I'd take a look at it for sure though. This is damn close and I think it would stand a pretty good chance on the panel, but those are some things I think they might take issue with so I'd have a look at them before you submit!
  10. Just putting the word out that this is NOT DEAD.....Wheels are turning.
  11. Haha Mag and texas are both so far for us Canadians
  12. No way! Totally missed this! Kris Maddigan is a fantastic drummer from my hometown whom I've had the pleasure of sharing a stage with before! Awesome that we got an interview with him! This game has a huge connection to my hometown as well with musicians such as Jeff Mcleod, Ben Hognestad and Jon Dyck (all hometown friends and amazing pianists) contributing their talents!
  13. I enjoy popping in on this thread from time to time to see how it's progressing. I was a young lad....probably about 15 when I asked Usa to do a track on this album. Knew nothing about remixing at the time. I'm 26 now and this project is the last stronghold of my childhood on OcRemix
  14. Thanks for the kind words Wolflord! We hope to provide some more music in the not to distant future! Glad to see this album still getting some love!
