  1. I love pretty much every video game composer, and Sir Nobuo is one of the top.
  2. Well, since we're on the topic... I've been at "this level" of musical composition/talent for a couple years now, and haven't been improving. Almost all of my projects end up like this one - I get a good idea, write something, and it ends up being about 30 seconds of actual "material". And then I get stuck. Usually it goes in the "work" folder and never gets touched again, but sometimes I decide to repeat things and change things to try and get length and variety out of it. Sorry to just gush out like this, but this isn't, well, the first time I've gotten discouraged with music. I think part of the problem is that I happen to really like very deep, thick chords and part layering, with subtle changes, but I think I'm the only one. But thanks for the encouragement, guys. You probably still won't ever see WIP #2 of this, but I still appreciate the listens.
  3. Thanks for the listens, guys. Yeah, it is really repetitive. I just didn't really know where else to go or what to do with the song. The rest of the original piece doesn't really... fit, to me. Ah well. You probably won't hear a WIP #2 of this piece... I just don't think I have the skills to do decent remixes. I guess I can go back to listening to Fire Field from the Brawl soundtrack on repeat and wishing I was that good... P.S. I just realized I typed Touhou 5 in the title, not 6. Do'h!
  4. Hello all, I'm a big fan of the Touhou series of games - the music in particular. One of my favourite themes has been the theme of Flandre Scarlet from Embodiment of Scarlet Devil. (If you don't know it, you've probably heard a, uh, "remix" in the youtube video that's been floating around by the name of "Ronald McDonald insanity" or "Mc Roll'd".) So, I whipped up a progressive electronic...ish piece based on that song. You can find the actual original song here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYQHMSN13j4 Note that this is WIP #1, so it is very rough. And I know the "solo" sounds, uh, not so good. Also, this is only the "main" section of the song; there's approximately two others that I could include (if need be), but I don't really think they could work well. Please, listen and comment! http://koiulpoi.googlepages.com/U.N.OwenWasHer.mp3
  5. Wow, just found this mix. Incredible job. I found myself just putting 1:09 - 1:40 on repeat. Can't wait to hear the rest!
  6. Downloaded fine for me. I think your main problem, as far as sounds go, is that your notes are too chaotic. There's no real cohesiveness between one measure to the next. However, within the measures themselves, everything's a little too perfectly on beat. A real orchestra wouldn't sound like this - at the very least things would be ever so slightly out of tune and off beat. All I can really say is that you need to capture more of the "spirit" of the song. It sounds like you're trying to transcribe it a bit too literally. Good luck, and keep going!
  7. I totally agree with Rozovian. If you are able to transition this into some more hi-fi stuff, it'd set up some great sounds and end up working really well. In fact, it sounds to me like you could do it at the end of what you have right here. Either that, or do it when you hit that key change at 1:45 or so. Keep up the good work!
  8. Yup, that's it. I know, it's rather far from the original. I'm not really sure at this point if I can bring it back to where OCR would want it. I kinda just posted it here to get feedback on the mix. I think you're right. Thanks. I haven't written the ending yet, so yeah, it definitely needs to change in that respect. Well, the problem is that it doesn't really feel like it is going anywhere to me. It almost feels like I've just made a new loop to play in the background of some game. But I'll certainly try. Thanks for listening!
  9. I've been working on this electronic/minimalist (not really)/I don't know what remix of the Phantasy Star 1 Dungeon Theme. In Phantasy Star 4, the track is titled "PS1 Dungeon Arrange 2". However, this song has digressed so far from the original, I can hardly call it a remix anymore - it's more of a completely new song! I'm using a lot of e-piano sounds, changed the key to sound much more major, and chopped up a lot of parts to make new ones. It's a little repetitive, and the drums need work, but that's why I'm posting it here in the WIP boards. http://koiulpoi.googlepages.com/PS43.mp3 Enjoy, and let me know how I'm doing!
  10. Check your internet and download again. The file at http://koiulpoi.googlepages.com/camanis.mp3 is remarkably different from the other one. Perhaps since they're both called "Camanis.mp3" your browser is duplicating one from the cache? There's no way they're the same file at all - I've never been to "x-treme games music".
  11. Hi all, relatively new remixer here, I've been working on a progressive electronic remix of Camanis from the game Tyrian, and I wanted to know what you guys think: http://koiulpoi.googlepages.com/camanis.mp3 The original can be heard at http://tyrian2000.cjb.net/ in the music section, but you'll have to search a bit. Thanks in advance!
  12. I am really liking that funky style you've got for this! My only complaint, really, is that the main bass is too "sub"-ish, and can't be heard as well. Other than that it's sounding great.
