  1. I'm going to get involved with this. You Became The Bad Guy! is the track I'm going to work on ASAP. I'll keep everyone posted.
  2. I didn't even realize this was here. Belated thank you. I feel like a real idiot now for my recent actions on Twitter.
  3. I just thought I'd say I apologize for overreacting the way I did. It was very immmature and childish, and I was just upset over the fact that my mix didn't make the cut. I should have took into consideration that most works that are submitted to the panel get rejected. It was foolish behavior on my part and unacceptable. Maybe I should look at this as a learning experience, in multiple ways. Not just for music, but my reactions. I've been at VGM for a very long time. I started back in 2001 on VGMix. As a mere rookie, I was always hoping that one day, that I could have one of my works make it
  4. I took everything that you said Rozovian, and I worked on it a lot more afterwards. I also took the criticism of other posts on this thread. Let's see what people think about it now. https://soundcloud.com/red_rum/souled-out-finished
  5. https://soundcloud.com/red_rum/souled-out-extended I extended this remix and added quite a bit to it. I might change the link before OCReMix gets a hold of it for the panel review. Enjoy, and feedback would be nice.
  6. Thanks. In fact, I'm posting an update on this track soon.
  7. I just tried that. I see no prefix dropdown to change the option when I go to edit the main thread post. Meh. Oh well. Thanks for trying to help out though. EDIT : Nevermind, I figured it out. Thanks once more. ---------- More reviews and listens would be nice. BUMP
  8. Streets of Rage pride, man! You aren't the first to complain about the ending of this track. Again though, it is a finished product. I wanted to be a bit different and make Last Soul more of a full track instead of a loop as well. The conga roll at 1:55 was the hardest part to mimic. Honestly, it took me a few days just to get it right. It has a bit of a weird... swing, I should say? Plus, the samples I used to create that section were hard to equalize correctly with the bass I synthesized. So, this comment, I'm definitely not taking to the heart. I did the best I could with it. Thank you
  9. :: BUMP :: I want more people to listen to this and comment on it.
  10. ambient! I remember you. I remember many years ago, I was working on a cross-game remix between Shenmue and Streets of Rage and you somewhat walked me through on it. You broke down the track, guided me on what to improve on, etc. etc. How's it hanging? Tell me about it. I've been trying for years to get just one song on here, my dude. Haha. This isn't get accepted? Say what? I actually had to go back and listen to this twice. Very good arrangement, very good beat. With HQ speakers, you can hear how booming those bass drums/kicks are. I actually thought about extending the remix and going b
  11. I'm always open for criticism, my dude. That's the best way to actually go back and look on improving on things you can do better. And you aren't being a jerk. All input is relevant and everyone's opinion is different. Yes, I know the judges can be picky, but I suppose that is a good thing. That's why they judge works, right? They have to have the ear to breakdown a track from top to bottom. Well, I wouldn't say OCR is my only driving factor. However, it is a main priority. I have been working with VGM since 2000. I was even there when the old VGMix used to be up and running. OCR is, has, and
  12. Thank you. I know I'm good at what I do, but I feel like I need a driving movitation factor to continue on. Making the cut I feel would do that for me. Again, I'm glad you enjoyed the mix. Thanks for listening.
  13. If it makes the cut, I actually might be driven to create more mixes for OCReMix. Who knows though? OCR is the one thing that I've always wanted in all of my years working with VGM. Only time will tell. Also, I'm glad you enjoyed this. I did work very hard on this and with no internet, I had the time to take my time to work on it.

If this arrangement does not make it, I honestly don't know what will. It doesn't matter anyways, this is my one last final attempt. Even if it gets a *RESUB*, I won't be trying anymore. I will move on completely from all
