  1. The cake is a lie. http://blue-bomber.jvmwriter.org/community/index.php?showtopic=94&st=175&gopid=22448entry22448 Saw you registered on the new forum, wanted to spread there as well. Happy birthday!
  2. I'm feeling it, man. Only thing I would really say is to add some more into, it sounds bare as is. And the snare sounds really weak/not fitting for the song, IMO. Yeah, other than that it just sounds bare. Add some atmosphere and/or synth strings maybe? Maybe let the kicks last longer, they seemed to fill in some gaps. Keep working on it, I'd like to hear some more, homes.
  3. I don't know what to say, because everything you really should have read has been posted already. All I can say is don't give up. There are times where we all doubt ourselves, but you can do so much if you just keep at what you're doing. Don't believe in yourself. Believe in us who believe in you.
  4. Done. That was interesting. You don't usually think of things like that when you're playing.
  5. Shoot, I never got an invite to OiNK. Oh well, my main man Fuzzy Slippers will get me my obscure and hard to find stuffs.
  6. Hmm... Me likey. I was wondering... The little pattern you start at 1:19 or so. Do you think that to 1:29 would be a good intro for the song? Maybe that's just me, it just seems like it takes too long to get into some original stuff. Yeah, probably just me. Keep on with it, dude. I'd lend vocals, but I don't think I could fit this.
  7. I believe this is like an info exchange point, like those tack boards with lists of various jobs and such on them: you leave your info and then people can have easier ways to search out talent for their musical happenings. I think this is an awesome idea, I'm already registered as Syl. This'll really get people connected if we take advantage of it. Sorta like Collab... though I never used that. >_> Great idea, guys.
  8. Yeah, not bad for your first song, dude. Simple instruments, but I like direction you're taking with this. - Parts like 2:53 sound really epic, make the synth strings swell up to that point, like everything is going to build up. - The intro percussion is weird... Dunno, doesn't really fit. This isn't bad at all, it's just really simple, IMO. But I likes it. I say keep working with it, possibly play with some other sounds.
  9. Hey, all. Here is a remix of the Mega Man Legends 2 Mother Zone, which I dubbed "Sera's Emotions". For those not familiar with the source... http://www.legends-station.com/mml2/mp3/MML2-ElysiumMother.mp3 I started out with just wanting the original to repeat, then to hop right into a techno remix of this. What entailed is not what I expected, and I basically changed my whole look on the song by the time I got to the recording. With this, first you'll hear the original play once, and then again, but this time with my (shitful) electric guitar playing. I'm pretty horrid on the guitar, I know. Next, the song comes into the techno transition I mentioned before... but only for a while. Then it starts to get fresh, going into a 16 bar keyboard solo. After that is a alto sax solo, which finishes the "song" off. Lastly is a clip from the game's final boss (this song is the zone that comes before her). Nothing special, really. This was a request for a used to be friend, so I tried to give some fan-service for him. I hope you enjoy. I started this as a project to pass the time, turned out to be something kinda decent, IMHO. C+C is always welcome. Note that I don't plan on trying to make this an OCReMix, production on this is particular piece is finished. I still would love to hear what others think of it in an unbiased light. Thanks for your time, the song is below. Sera's Emotions /GX
  10. Manually work with FPCs, is my suggestion for percussion. It may sound a bit mechainic at first, but you'll be able to get it to swing. /GX
  11. Believe me, I'm a big Mega Man fan, especially of the X series. I wasn't able to pick out anything at all. Maybe Blizzard Buffalo's theme.... But barely. I'm sure YOU can pick them out, no problem. I'm not hearing Gravity Beetle's theme at all. I caught Zero's this listen though. To tell the truth, it doesn't sound too much different from last time. Maybe that's just me. /GX
  12. Very unoriginal is right. And this is short as hell. 1:20 isn't cool, homes. The kicks sound flat, IMO. This is just really repetitive and uninspiring. And just when you think it's gonna turn into something decent, it hits the 1:20 mark. Nothing too original about this. I don't mean to tear you down. With some more work, and some more original content in it, it can be more enjoyable. Don't give up on it. /GX
  13. Don't blame the time you've had with a program on any shortcomings. Everything sounds like it's at the same volume, and barely panned. The drums sound generic and not really that varied, and the lead feels too loud sometimes. This gave me a headache... The solo is nice, I'll give you that. Volume is the main issue. Fix that, and some better sounding drums would be nice. And then I think this would have a chance up against the Judges. Good luck. /GX
  14. The intro is pretty bad. Well, actually, like the first 4 seconds. It just feels like you're playing a wrong note, or the notes aren't syncing up right, or something... Maybe that's just me. I'm actually feeling this (I'm listening to lo-fi so I can't really say if something something low quality. I can't remember my login info. >.>), especially when the toms come in. It actually all starts to come together near the 2:30 mark, give or take. The synth that takes the lead at 2:52 or so sounds good, and the violin was unexpected. It sounds good, but maybe a bit too repetitive. I was gonna say they'd shoot this down real quick, but this turned out to be pretty good. Keep tweaking some stuff, maybe throw some more percussion changes in it. With some fixes, I can see this passing. /GX
  15. The percussion instuments used are rather... bland. Especially the kicks and high hats. I'm not sure about trying to throw in so many "cameos" of other themes, I can't really pick them out. The saxes don't sound to bad, at some parts it even sounds as if someone's playing (the soprano). I'm actually having a hard time picking out the source for this. It sounds cool and all, but I don't recognize anything. Your own playing is awesome, you deserve that, at least. I'd say improve the quality of the percussion. Besides that, it's not bad, considering what's you're using. Oh, that brass sounds kinda... out of place. Maybe a better sounding brass sample/soundfont. /GX
  16. Point blank, this cut is fresh to death. No questions asked. It may take nay sayers some time to get into it, but they'll see how awesome this is. /GX
  17. Welcome back, man. It's good to here life is getting better for you, it goes to shit for all of us at one time or another. /GX
  18. Hell yeah, man. This is what I'm talking about. I'm feeling this groove... I'd jam to this. Basically anything I found awkawrd within this song you mentioned already. Like the bass. It feels a bit too loud. Just a bit. And the brass sounds bit out of place. And what kind of sax is that? Sounds like a soprano playing lower notes. I feel that, but the echo effect on it seems to go on for too long. The snare I also don't like as much (it being there is fine, I just don't like the sound). Uh, besides that.... awesome job, man. You bro lending some sax to this gave it a unique touch, and this is a fresh cut. /GX
  19. Lawl, compressed drums, lawl. Not bad, but it's in dire need of volume control. The lead I kind of don't like... but that's about all I have to say. Anything else has been said, and you should take heed to it. Right now, it's sitting at "an alright arrangement". Good luck with finishing this piece. /GX
  20. I don't know what to say besides.... awesome. o: |GX
  21. This won't fly when it comes to the judges... well, the solo will. Seriously, the drum (especially the snare) are very ... lame. As mentioned, the lead isn't as crunchy as the rhythm.... Most importantly! Your sound clips.... Being the big Mega Man fan I am, I was pretty upset you used a Protoman clip in the intro. Especially since Storm Eagle was voiced in a OVA that was in the PSP remake "Mega Man: Maverick Hunter X". Try searching for it and see if you can actually use some of his voice clips. And the "Let's Get Ready 2 Rumble" bit felt REALLY out of place. |GX
  22. I personally enjoyed it, though it seemed rather flat throught the whole listening. That COULD be just me. I think you pointed out everything I would have said is wrong. Good luck with writing an ending and with fixing those touches in the song. |GX
  23. Download WinRar. It's like WinZip, only it unzips a lot more file types (7z, zip, rar, etc.) Use WinRar to unzip the file and extract the contents of the rar file into a folder. |GX
  24. Kind of meh-ish, to me (could be that I'm just not fond of trance music ). The instruments sound kind of bland IMO. The whole thing as a whole is excellent, I must say, though. Yeah, why not? Try your luck with the judges. I mean, if nothing, you'll get tips to improve your song. Good luck if you do submit. |GX
