  1. I've always wanted to mix this tune, but never had the balls. Nicely done, I enjoyed this very much.
  2. After years of never explaining... The fadeout was indeed rushed, but not quite because I didn't know what else to do with it. I was essentially beyond excited to have people hear it; I posted it to VGM within minutes of applying the fadeout. "Listen, listen, listen!!" I'm not a hater of fades.... many of my favorite recording artists and bands have done them for ages, but in this track, I certainly wish I had decided to spend another day or two with it; try to add more of my original nonsesne, etc., and give it proper ending. Still proud of it, though. Thanks to all who have listened an
  3. Yeah, I guess I'll nab 'Opening to Hell.' I've already started a remix of it.... From what I can see, it's not yet taken, so sign me up for that one. For good! ~Quinn P.S. 'Tamer, indeed.... my old moniker was Quinn X5, but there's no way to get that password back. Do what ya can, lemme know.... P.S.S. So strange...... Doom changed the way I played and judged a game, and the creator is a big fan of my music??? I could never have imagined such flattery.... Romero is a great guy, and I'll always envy him. I'll do my best on this project.
  4. Count me in! I'll pick a track in earnest by Sunday, but I've needed something to work on, and this is right up my alley. Cheers!
  5. I've seen Gray go from practially zero to hero in the last 2+ years, and I'd say that this is his best effort so far... The reason being is simple.... excitement, and PERCUSSION. In the past, even though we all knew that Gray's sound quality and mixing skills were tight, I often found the composition (sometimes) to be slightly dull, and more than that, the percussion could KILL a mix for me.... But that's all past. This is the best Gray mix I've yet heard.... perfect percussion, slick surprises, his best use yet of the asian instrumentation he's fond of, and compelling dynamics. The atmos
  6. The Good 1. Excellent sound quality, as usual from Gray... 2. Great instrument selection, especially love the pizzicatos near the end... 3. A ballsy, electronic section in the middle.... 4. Did I mention wonderful samples? The Not BAD, but Okay, Gray..... I'm going to cut to the chase here.... This particular piece strikes me in a very similar way to many of your others, in that while they sound wonderful and show respectful liberation, the actual composition is sometimes rather plodding, and for me, portions that are given a stomping, almost military feel are out of place. Time after
  7. I can't say much of what many others haven't, but I WILL say that this is pretty damned good! I remember the theme very well, it's interpretation is liberal yet respectful, and since I'm also a child of the 80's, hearing any reference to Trio is elation. Heh heh, "Sunday you need love, monday be alone..." Nice work, David, and a wonderful, eloquent write up. Cheers!
  8. Very nice. What makes this the most enjoyable for me is the fact that you can easily picture Ecco exploring some huge, dark, mysterious underwater environment, something I loved about ALL Ecco games. Sound quality, instrument selection and balance.... all grand. The only thing that sort of bothered me was that without the image of Ecco and exploration, the song seemed to drag on a little, losing important energy more than midway through..... I felt there could have been more 'music' if that makes sense... However, this is made up with the final, and BEST, part of the song, the last minut
  9. I really like the way this starts out. Percussion is brutal (in a good way) and the Asian instrument touches are very cool. At around 1:30, it looks like we start to visit more of the original tune itself, and I love the pads that fade in and eventually rise to a deep 'boom' of a transition.... nicely done. The bells sound a little thin, but not that there's anything wrong with the sample. I probably would have just gone with something meatier.... still, all of this is very cinematic and forces imagery... This is my favorite part, coming in at about 3:03.... the first time I heard it, I
  10. Thanks to all who have checked this out.... it's an older tune, but I'm glad to see that it holds up moderately well. This mix was a blast to do about three years ago, and I guess I'm still slightly proud of it... Anyway, thanks again!
  11. Pretty damned impressive, Gray.... I'm not leaping too far, I think, by labeling this as your best remix. Not only does my affection for it include the bias of being a loyal SF veteran, but it reminds me very much of Holst, and his 'Planets' symphony. This, I garuntee you, is high praise. Keep up the great work; moving fast.... how about a Panzer Zwei mix, eh? Love the voices...
  12. Summons some really great memories. I played Xenogears around the time it was released, and it still remains my favorite RPG on the console. I played it during a....hectic time of my life, and for that reason, it's embedded in my memory in a way that many other games aren't....only Lunar : Eternal Blue (SCD) stands higher in that regard.... As such, it's a great RPG for a rainy day, and this music is as well....appropriate since it's been raining like madness here in Indy for the last few weeks. There's an undeniable sad, blue theme to the song which lies under a subtle yet massive 'field'
  13. Thanks again to all who downloaded and listened, and even more thanks to those with extremely kind, encouraging comments. Beyond appreciation. ~Quinn
  14. Well, I'm admittedly an amateur on guitar, and I'm not the greatest recording engineer, so....yes, of course, it was a real guitar! ~Quinn
  15. Thanks for the listen, everyone....and thrice as much for enjoying it Yeah, I'm in agreement that the fret noises are much too loud....but as it was my first stab at a guitar driven mix, I honestly didn't even notice how annoying it was until someone mentioned it.... I won't remaster this one, I don't think, but it'll be a good step in helping my next guitar mix be better. Once again, thanks to all who listened and commented. Makes the world mine for a few minutes.... ~Quinn
