  1. I'd be very happy to see somebody pick up the admin reins on this - spent a bunch of time on my track, and getting something onto a Final Fantasy OCR album has very much been a bucket list goal for a while! I've got no issues with you taking charge, @Meteo Xavier
  2. Hey, everyone! My band Child of Ash just released our first demo today, featuring drum programming by OCR's own @Katamari - super heavy, atmospheric, crushing black metal with some bleak and meaningful subject matter to boot. Check it out if any of that floats your boat! The demo is a free download on Bandcamp (or you can pay what you think it's worth):
  3. Oooh, yes please! I absolutely adore this game and soundtrack - could I claim A New Hope/Sultana Dreaming? Aside, I cannot wait to see what Oa does with Nobility Sleeps because that is basically a perfect piece of music, don't @ me
  4. Just going to chime in as well to say good to see some life! I've been wondering how things were going with this - fingers crossed you get things sorted with the family, @Odai, and we can press on with unleashing this goodness on the world Cheers!
  5. Bumpy bump - I've done a version 2 of this (with added bass, ambience, extra bits) which I'd consider ready for review! Feedback greatly appreciated
  6. Hey up everybody - so I've been fiddling around with this for the last few weeks and figured I'd throw it up for any feedback/thoughts that people might have. It's a 7-string guitar, heavy, atmospheric, RIFFZ version of the absolutely excellent Mt Gagazet theme from Final Fantasy X which I have affectionately titled 'Riff Mountain' just because. There are a few fudged notes so I'll be re-recording chunks of it, I've not done a great deal of mixing on this and it has no mastering whatsoever because that's an arcane and unknowable art to me, but nevertheless- feedback would be appreciated! I think it's decent, I'm just not sure whether the arrangement is where it needs to be. Cheeeers!
  7. Just to echo Chris above - has there been any update on the status of this album? Just want to make sure I've not missed anything - I've got a WIP that I'm happy with and I think just needs mastering, so would be good to know what's happening with the project. Thanks!

    LoZ: Twilight Princess - Hidden Village

    That is a crime! I would be more than up for trying to do a proper, Ennio Morricone-style version of this... *adds it to the backlog*
  9. It's a shame to see that things got so bad that Brandon had to be banned, but I trust in the decision you guys have made and I'm totally still down for doing the album - being on an OCR album release has been a bucket list item for me for a long time, and especially a Final Fantasy one given how important those soundtracks have been to me! Let's get it done
  10. I would quite like to take a stab at European Town, since I reckon I can pull something together for that- if you have no objections, boss man?
  11. This looks awesome and much more cost-effective than assembling all the various equipment necessary to capture those sounds from the actual hardware! Plus I've spent ages pounding my head against LSDj and just can't get the hang of anything more than simple melodies, so being able to just throw midi files into Kontakt is literally a dream come true Watch out judge's panel, you're going to get a whole bunch of brutal chiptune death metal songs from me once this is out in the wild
  12. First WIP is in the project subforum! Turns out that happening to wake up an hour and a half before I normally do for work is good for my productivity...

    The Next Final Fantasy OC ReMix Album is...

    XII all the way - I absolutely adore that soundtrack, Sakaguchi knocked it out of the park. His stuff on Vagrant Story was good, but XII was another level- just perfect for the world and the setting. It'd be good to focus in on a smaller section of tracks IMO, rather than trying to remix the whole soundtrack- maybe just a selection of tracks from the various different regions of Ivalice, like a XII travel guide?
  14. Gah, I didn't realise I'd missed a deadline for WIPs- massive apologies! I've just finished off another track for the Terranigma project, so I'll go full steam on SeeD this weekend and get at least a rough WIP posted in the private forum. It's all arranged and I've got the drums together, just need to lay down some riffs!

    Final Fantasy XIV - Anything

    I just got to Ishgard in the game and had a moment of pure "Holy crap, this is beautiful" when the night-time theme ("Nobility Sleeps") came on in the Pillars: Just... UNF. As soon as I'm done with the things I'm currently working on, I'm going to start on an epic rock/metal remix with soaring lead guitar lines- mostly because there's no way I can match the beauty and tranquility of the original song so I might as well dirty it up a little!
