  1. Ello all! I thought I'd give you all a heads up on my first ever commercial release. I posted a track up last year, called Survival Instinct. Well, it's just come out on vinyl, backed with two top dollar remixes. For details on how to buy the single, click here. I'd like to thank everyone who's helped me with my WIPs over the years, with special mention to EazyP, Ellywu2, Gamebox, GrayLightning, Liontamer, SGX and lots more that I'm sure I've forgotten. The OCR community is such a great creative field, and I intend to keep my finger in the remix pie Cheers all! Binster (AKA Dr.Awkward)
  2. Evening all! Here's a new track for you. Features a sample from the movie "Shaun of the Dead". Enjoy Binster
  3. Gamebox just doesn't quit, does he? This is as always amazing funk. It's all there - the solo, the changes, the refined mastery. When you think you've got a handle on it, it applies some lotion and slips from your grasp in the most delightful way. Top drawer stuff. Which is all the man seems able to do. Two enthusiastic thumbs up. Binster

    Free Music

    Dirty Mix fans, head over to http://www.stratfordisland.com/asap for six albums of free tunes. Two Christmas albums, an Uplifting album, a Learning album, an album composed in MIDI and an entirely new genre of music called Skew await you.
  5. Cheers Elly, Avaris and of course Mr EazyP Don't worry, there's plenty more rubbish films for me to sample yet...
  6. Season's Greetings! Here's a vaguely Christmassy track I've had sitting on my hard drive in an unfinished state since about April. It features, as do practically all my tracks, a sample from a rubbish dvd I found in poundland. This time it was a Disney knock off version of Aladdin. Enjoy!
  7. I'll mention it to my mate (nervous_testpilot, for it is he) to see if there's scope for some kind of article about OCR - I'll keep you posted
  8. Cheers for the kind words fellers! As for CM - it's not as glamourous as it seems; one of my mates works as a writer for the mag, and he innocuously sent me a list of questions... I was surprised when my answers featured in such a prominent article! Binster

  11. That's brought me back down to earth - cheers meccaneer
  12. This track's getting so well received, I'm worried I won't be able to top it... Creative downward-spiral, here I come! Cheers Master And Penwald - glad it's doing it for you.
  13. That's absolutely fine Klondike - I crave fame, so the more posts the merrier Helmholz, you're far too kind. Keep it up
  14. Dunno how that happened. I'm sure normal service will be resumed shortly...
  15. Muchas gracias to everyone who's commented in this thread. I'm really blown away by the reception this mix is getting. I'm very proud to have produced such a fitting tribute to the main man himself, Mr Follin. Binster
  16. Got to pick you up on that one at least. Did you notice the way Cybil was smiling when she pulled the trigger? My reading of it was that she knew the gun was empty, but equally she knew Rose had to get in that lift. When Rose was safely on the descent, she had won. They could beat her all they wanted, she'd done what she had to. Hence, the smile and the click. I thought it was beautifully done. I doubt that'll make a difference to what you think of the film, but I thought it needed pointing out.
  17. Just wanted to chime in with my thoughts. The film's ace! It has bad bits, but as a complete thing it's wonderfully horrid. SPOILERS : (How do I do white text?) I wasn't keen on the nurses role in this film. I think these nurses were modelled on the nurses from SH2 - all sexy and busty. That worked in that game due to the overall themes of lust and that, but here they seemed out of place. SPOILERS END Does Christopher Gans have an email address? I want to write to him and thank him for this film. </FANBOY MODE>
  18. Bad ass. Being game music fans, I'd think that everyone was born with an inate love of old-skool beeps. I certainly am. This is great. It's complex at the core, with simplistic tones at the fore. It takes you by surprise. Binster
  19. Good news, everyone! I've uploaded the long version of Icon to my myspace page. It's also less harsh on the ears, which is a good thing. Go to http://www.myspace.com/thabisnit to have a listen, plus I've got some other tracks up there too. Binster
  20. Is there some way of routing an audio signal through a DrRex that I'm not aware of? Lots of instruments have nice filters (the subtractor, for example) but that's moot. I want to be able to high pass my entire mix. And I'm not keen on using the reverse-sweep vocoder-whitenoise technique from Peff's book, either. Far too fiddly...
  21. Cheers for the kind words, all. EazyP, you make me blush Less Ashamed, you got any particular source piece in mind? No promises, of course irriadin, I'm going to have to look at Home sweet home again, I think. I overworked it, and it turned out a bit poo, so I'll give it a refit to bring it up to the standard befitting a track with a GaMeBoX guest appearance... Binster
  22. They can add a decent filter. The current one is bobbins - just LP and BP. We need more power! HP at least...
