  1. Don't bang me - I promise I'm up to date!
  2. @OceansAndrew, - helped me out a lot during the initial project I was a part of for Final Fantasy 4 @audio fidelity - Same as above - also a fellow bass player. Gave me a venue to screm on which drove me down a path to adding vocals to everything I do PuD is tagged below cuz this posting thing messed up on me- fellow bass player - inflamed me with passion to try to improve my craft Shnabubula taught me a lot of things about music and tbh a few things about the industry in a way. Protricity - for giving me my current handle indirectly. @DrumUltimAcuz he's a chill dude. @prophetik music cuz he taught me a thing or two about not being too full of myself. BustaTunez cuz he's pretty legit tbh.This tagging system has screwed me up Probably others too but I'm bad with names. Thanks for being cool. @bustatunez @Prince uf Darkness
  3. Last year and half I've been "ReMixing" again to try new things with my style and explore different types of melodies. I'll probably always do that a little bit. Going back to originals for a little bit though (even though they *are* inspired by other works of fiction oftentimes)
  4. All I'd want to do is re-re-re-mix what I've got for a final. I'm happy with the recording in general but made some questionable mixing choices since I was experimenting with new guitar gear and such
  5. for the majority of the listening party (the chat is saved as well) had to restart the stream so here's the last couple tunes.
  6. For those interested - there will be a listening party tonight
  7. Source: I'll admit (despite my normal inclination toward humility) I'm damn proud of this. I don't know what I would change from a mix perspective or anything but the real question is... Too conservative for OCR? XD That's the thing I have trouble gauging. Lyrics are attached. FallingDownLryics.txt
  8. I give consent - monetize my remixes. Do it. I'm with you with regards to YT's sudden monetization of everything all at once... seems sketch. Either way - I feel like a ReMix is a donation and you can do as you like with it. So engage the muns.
  9. I for one have one arrangement fully done aside from some mixing One just needs to have me record more guitars to and then sing over.
  10. I put this album on my chicken saute. It didn't affect the flavor but it sure sounded good.
  11. In a world where Mega Man 7's intro theme and Big Blue are combined - Mega Man kicks Captain Falcon's ass and joins the F-Zero Grand Prix... Lyrical idea given by @OceansAndrew over on Twitter when I was agonizing over it. I've been screwing with this for awhile, any comments on the mix before I submit it to the hallowed halls of OverClocked ReMix I'm always down for FEEDBACK! Source1 source2 Download for those who want it vs YT video: Lyrics: High speed racing Burned in his blood But now It's in my circuits I feel the need for speed I push on the throttle Rock it like a shuttle Roll into first place I will never lose a race Pun ch through the sky, like a falcon above It mirrors the endless sea below me Kick through the pack Come up from the back I don't think I'll be the same Adrenaline flowing' Or at least I assume so Show me your moves So I can show you mine And Keep you in second place I'll take the first with grace You might get small taste In this battle and chase! I received this power by winning a fight So I may as well put it to good use! Punch through the sky, like a falcon above It mirrors the endless sea below me Kick through the pack Come up from the back I don't think I'll be the same I received this power by winning a fight So I may as well put it to good use!
  12. I'm trying to figure out the guitar solo that's basically it. And I keep improving at vocals so I may or may not be putting off that recording. I have some ideas kicking around for other tracks but ehhhhhhhh... I didn't claim anything else did I?
  13. The subbass was so good that my 5-inch studio monitors were enough to make it feel great. once I flipped on my subwoofer (per commendation) that's when I was really able to just sit back and enjoy the beat. The lyrical flow was a little static/robotic for me but I mean w/e the experience was good enough
  14. Hey all - I've got a bad habit of sitting on things but quite frankly I'm glad I did considering I leveled up in terms of my rhythm guitar tone and my bass management. Mixing feedback appreciated
  15. Been 4 years since I got my rejection letter. After all that time I think I can finally call this song done to the best of my abilities as both a performer and a vocalist... but also as an engineer. I'm resubmitting this for sure... not sure if that'll be tonight or tomorrow. I'm fading faster after spending a little too long on the video editing. First is remix followed by source:
  16. So I noticed is not on the list? I have a WIP for it, I was thinking of a calming folksy acoustic arrangement.
  17. I mean - since I'm assuming you were going for something that could potentially be heard in either game I'd say you did bang-up job. The melodies work so well together it's scary and it stylistically it sounds like a cross between FF7 and FF13 arranging as well. Nice work.
  18. Thanks for all the feedback - finally submitted it. See you all in a year?
  19. Gonna retool some things for Azure Skies of course. Maybe jump on a couple that I definitely have wanted to do for ages, but we'll see how the next few weeks go.
  20. YOO. First thing I will say - your vocals aren't tooo bad. I can hear where you're sorta only half hitting notes on occasion. You also have a tenancy to scoop into notes but it doesn't sound like you're doing it entirely on purpose. The biggest tip I always got was "come at notes from above" so you're more likely to pronounce the note right on pitch. You should sing more of this song like you did that last verse, it was more convicted and even. Also, careful of the fluttery vibrato, it can work sometimes but I'm not particularly a fan of it in most contexts and if it wasn't present it would give your approach a bit more honesty I feel. You pronounce words very deliberately which I think works for this style. The instrumental is cool, the vocals sort of take over the cool backing stuff you have going on that would help break it up a bit. The bass could also be playing lower notes imo at certain parts so that it has some punch in the low end. That may be me talking as someone who loves a good low end hanging around though. Hope that helps!
  21. Thanks for submitting your remix to this board to be listened to by the people here! I love the overall feeling of this piece. I know this is marked "completed", but going forward I think I have some tips for future mixes! You have a really cool bell lead, and this bell-like arpeggio going on. They sound great but they are competing for the same frequency space, and then when you add the flute lead it sort of gets a little difficult to tell what's going on. (particularly with all the reverb on the lead instruments) My first idea would be to simply turn the backing arpeggios down a little to give room for the leads. Alternatively you could get rid of some of their upper mid range (probably around 2khz in this case) to make some room for your lead instruments so the melody you wrote (and the saria's song counter melody) can stick out to the listeners ear. I think you could get away with turning the reverb effect down a little bit too, but that may be just my personal preference talking. I echo what Uffe von Lauterbach mentioned about the bassline, it seems empty down in the low end for the style. First mix? Not bad! Hope to hear more from you
  22. Welcome to OCR. My only comment really is that the lead guitar is a LITTLE biting imo. You can probably round it out by cutting around 8k just a touch. That's probably more of my personal preference for warmer sounds than anything else, but since the lead guitar is so present and loud in general I don't think it would affect the overall mix other than making the lead a little less abrasive. I know you were going for that Ska-ish lead tone but I guess I'm used to those being recorded on tape so are naturally a little warmer haha. God if for some reason you could get some live horns on this that would probably make my life, otherwise... yea great arrangment, great mix overall. Working with what you have, and you madei t sound great.
