  1. Pretty nice, it's a change of pace from Alex's normal style. Orchestral sequencing is more exposed but sounds good on first listen - drums get somewhat plodding by the end. Also needs an arrangement check ~ Emu ReMixer - RoeTaKa Name - Alex Roe Email - UserID - 9374 Games Arranged - Dark Souls Arrangement Name - Kindle the Soul Songs Arranged - Firelink Shrine (and Maiden in Black from Demon's Souls at 4:35 onwards) Comments: The Souls games have become a pivotal series in my life, it's a strange feeling to know you owe a lot to a video game franchise. Demon's Souls will always be what made me feel accepted into the Souls community and have an insanely supportive fanbase on my YouTube channel. But Dark Souls helped me through tougher times, it's a game that set me straight when I needed it. It makes me really happy to know that my Souls remixes mean something to the people that play these games. This time I have remixed Firelink Shrine. It's the last safe hub area of the Souls games that I haven't touched, mostly because I wasn't sure I could do anything with it that was worth doing. I've had some hard times with music lately and here I felt like I was returning to a younger Alex whose style I have neglected for a long time. I really enjoy chilled out music that has some emotion to it and I feel like it's a really natural thing for me to come back to. I did a lot of original material over the source but I tried to keep the original in tact with the strings and other elements. The drums might be a bit repetitive for OCRemix but I think they work. At the end of the song I used the hub theme from Demon's Souls when the drums drop out, it's mostly just to say that I like that song more haha but I think it made an enjoyable ending. I really enjoyed making this and I hope you enjoy it too! Source:
  2. LOL never mind I guess. Those got snatched up quick
  3. I want in on this. Not sure which track, but I've got my eyes on Spirit of the Night or I Closed My Eyes. I've got a few free days to throw something together, so I'll see what comes to me for either of those tracks over the weekend.
  4. Hooo boy. This might be the most downright-fun track I've heard from Ben to date. I'm very glad this didn't just gather dust on a hard drive. The fusion of acoustic instruments with his standard 8-bit pallet heavily evokes memories of halc's formative years, but the arrangement and wild melodies is 100% Lemon. I know Chimpazilla is going to love the use of sound effects here, very cleverly integrated in a way that actually contributes to the song's momentum. The only flaw I can really pick out here is that the marimba sample sticks out as dry and sits sort of strangely in the mix, especially on the lower notes. The arrangement here is very clearly above the bar but seeing as how this is a couple years old, the production isn't necessarily Lemon's best work. No biggie, I really enjoyed this one. YES
  5. Let's do something silly from Twilight Princess.ReMixer name: Hylian LemonGame arranged: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight PrincessName of arrangement: Life of a Bowling PinSongs arranged: Death Mountain (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3-ZmW9JSqQ)This was a track that sat in revision limbo for several years after originally being intended for a friend's birthday. If I don't get rid of it now, it'll gather dust on my computer forever.Ultimately, this is the story of a bowling pin's triumph. All he needed were some iron boots and really strong legs.

I have long desired to submit a remix but I never had the means to make something of any real production value. Near the beginning of this year, I bought a Yamaha MM8 synth, FL Studio 11, USB2 audio interface, and microphone. I don't often have much time to write music and I am still learning a lot. I am still quite the beginner even though I have long been a clarinetist and lover of music.This song is an ode to my childhood. I played the Sega Master System to death. It was the music from these games that got me addicted to music and, more specifically, video game music. There are no recorded music, but there are Kontakt 5 instruments, MM8 instruments, a few added sound effects, and did what I could to mix it properly. The intro, first part, and last parts are all melodically based from the music of the game. There is a small middle section that is influenced from the game but is a little bit more free form. I had trouble matching the overall sound level of the music to other songs on OCRemix, but I did a lot of experimenting with the individual tracks and added a compressor to the main track which did help the overall mix.In future work I am planning on utilizing my clarinet. Even if this song does not get accepted, I am really looking forward to the advice that the judges can give me; after all, they have much more experience than I do. I have and will continue to enjoy the great remixes featured on OCRemix.org. Thank you so very much.
  7. Didn't do an in-depth source check, but it seems like a solid expansion on the sound design front. Bass is pumping pretty loudly and the whole track feels a touch overcompressed. Kind of repetitive as well. Could benefit from some feedback, it has potential ~Emu Hi. This is my first submission to ocremix.

  8. I'm contacting you to submit a new Legend of Zelda' "Song of Storms" metal cover. Hope you all like and enjoy it. It's done with all my heart, as a long time fan of the Zelda saga (and of course, of metal music!). Thank you for your time and attention! P.S: I've also changed the song title to Soulstorm.

After some tinkering here and there, the track revamp is complete, although I lost some of the original feeling of the piece, but what can one do... The overall sound seems to be better anyway.

  11. The artist provided 2 alternate mixdowns based on Larry's feedback - I have linked them both above. For my money, the 2nd "alt" mix sounds more full, but either one is a pass. I would personally leave it to the artist's discretion which mixdown they would like to use. I can't get enough DS Castlevania action. Love these games so much. This mix is very solidly conceived, I'm digging the juxtaposition between the gothic-style bells and strings that have become a trademark of Castlevania soundtracks, and the grungy, distorted garage rock instrumentation. It's an unconventional blend on paper, but actually feels quite natural the way you executed it. The string sequencing was a highlight, it's actually pretty tricky to sequence orchestral lead instruments in with live instrumentation and still maintain the illusion of realism, but I think you struck a nice balance here. Nice work. (I liked this before and I like it still. Just going to copy/paste my vote from last time because it all still applies.) YES
  12. Link (version 1) - not panned as widely, attempting to address Larry's concerns Link (version 2) - tweaked version with wide panning initially meant as the RESUB; this is actually Tim's preferred version for resubmission Previous Decision Here's a mixdown which should address your panning concerns. It's far too dense for my taste, but perhaps it'll suit your needs.
  13. Gorgeous textures and some really smooth performances - you don't get too terribly fancy with any of the changes to the original source, but your arrangement handles Rainbow Road's melodies very tactfully with a lot of enhancements on the chord progression and harmonies. I love this approach and the sound quality is great. With the exception of :59-1:05, where things get inexplicably cluttered and busy, the sound quality is hitting all the major points for me. However, the arrangement here is so short - we almost never post tracks that are under 2 minutes long and this, unfortunately, feels too short for us. Give us even another 30-60 seconds of arrangement and fix up the aforementioned clutter at :59, and this would be an easy pass in my book. The fadeout at the end feels lazy too, I'd love to hear a more definitive ending. Hope to hear this one again, what you have is quite lovely and I'd love to hear it expanded just a bit further to push it over our bar. NO (resubmit!)
  14. Greetings! I hope all is well for you. Attached you will find my arrangements of MK64's Rainbow Road, compressed with winLAME on the Variable Bitrate setting with a Quality level of 1. Here is all the requested information: **Contact Information** ReMixer name: Strettostein Real Name: Eric Benaim E-Mail Address: Website: https://www.youtube.com/c/strettostein User-ID: 32685 **Submission Information** Name of the game(s) arranged: Mario Kart 64 Name of the arrangement: "Between Lights" Name of the individual song(s) arranged: Rainbow Road **Comments about the arrangement** I decided to arrange the music from one of my favorite childhood games, Mario Kart 64's Rainbow Road track. The piece remains in a Jazz/Fusion style with some rock influences, keeping the melodies very loyal to the original while re-harmonizing its support! I also added some of the rhythmic textures found in the original Rainbow Road track from SNES's Mario Kart, mainly located near the beginning of the piece. Overall a very fun and accessible arrangement that is meant to showcase the well-known melodies under a different light! ** In case the YouTube channel is not allowed as a valid website, my other choice would have to be my personal website: http://www.benaimcomposer.com (just in case!) On a side note, the YouTube channel contains the video performance of the arrangement. Thank you again for your time and help.

  15. Cool ideas, some neat stuff on the sound design front but there's a few mixing issues that stand out. That 808 is out of control! After the 2 minute mark things start to get pretty repetitive. Definitely worthy of some feedback ~ Emu Contact Information ReMixer name: StateOfCreationreal name: David Barnattemail address: website: http://davidbarnatt.com/userid: I can't find this anywhere within my profile or anyone elses, sorry! Submission Information Name of game(s) arranged: Rez Name of arrangement: Sidestepping Creation Name of individual song(s) arranged: Creation the State of ArtAdditional information about game including composer, system, etc. (if it has not yet been added to the site): It is in the database for the dreamcast, but it was also on PS2. This track is by Ken Ishii originally. Multiple composers did the music for the game but only 2 are listed so far.Link to the original soundtrack (if it is not one of the sound archives already available on the site): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PaoTmhU4J8UYour own comments about the mix, for example the inspiration behind it, how it was made, etc: I love the game Rez, it is actually what got me into electronic music believe it or not, it is a very personal game to me. I also remixed another track from the game at the same time as this; originally called Rock is Sponge by Joujouka (which I'm not sure if you'd allow me to submit sooner than the 3 weeks? Since it is a companion piece of sorts). I wanted to keep them as dance tracks in a similar style but just add my own touch to them as a tribute. There is a mix of samples and unique sounds mostly made on synths.
  16. There's definitely a lot of merit here to the sound design and slow, deliberate progression, but I think Larry hit the nail on the head. By our site standards today, this doesn't really feel like a fully-realized concept. I need to hear something more in order to meet our bar for interpretation and development of the source tune. NO
  17. To whomever it may concern, I have covered the track "Unavoidable Battle" from the video game Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3. Here is the file. Here is some information about the song itself: - Game - Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 - Submission Title - Shadow Swarm - Original Song Title (from the game) - Unavoidable Battle - Original Composer - Shoji Meguro - Other comments: I've always wanted to combine the two things I love most: Hard Rock/Heavy Metal and Persona. I have an entire YouTube channel dedicated to "turning up" the original arrangements. This cover was completely rebuilt and recorded from the ground up, using the original melody as a basis, as well as adding very low-tuned guitars and bass as well as thrash-metal style drumming. Also, while creating this cover, I wanted to be different from the original, so I came up with a very polyrhythmic breakdown and a half-timed breakdown outro, inspired by the Djent movement of Progressive Metal. This makes the arrangement more frantic and chaotic than the original, befitting as this song plays when the party cannot escape a battle. While making this cover, I have also assembled a "Persona 3 Band" and gave them individual parts: - Band Name: The Execution Squad - Rhythm Guitars = Yukari Takeba - Lead Guitars = P3 Protag (I will call him Makoto in this case) - Rhythm + Lead Guitars = Mitsuru Kirijo - Bass = Junpei Iori - Drums = Akihiko Sanada - Keyboards/Synthesizers = Fuuka Yamagishi - Sampler/Synthesizers = Aigis - Manager/Tech = Ken (sorry... I can't think of anywhere to place you) - Posthumous Member of Honor = Shinjiro Aragaki Contact information: - Remixer Name: damus1cmahn - Real Name: Michael Pham - Email address: - Website: damus1cmahn.wordpress.com - Forum ID: 32598 Thank you for your consideration and I will be looking forward to hearing back from you.

Names of songs arranged: Reminiscence (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7CKWhNB4Es) Link to the remix: Comments about the mix: I was waiting for the vocal recordings for another track for the PS1 20th anniversary album and basically just had some free time on my hands. Since I felt like making another track for the album I did some random browsing of PS1 RPG tunes when I stumbled upon this beautiful piece by Miki Higashino. It instantly inspired me and just begged to be remixed. So I just started working on something, replacing the piano from the original with a guitar arpeggio and playing the leads on a flute VST doubled by a whistle. Next was the violin part which I added as a counter melody and a few hours after finding the song I had a decent WIP going. I passed the preview to Ivan, who said “hey, it’d be cool if you could get a flautist, I think I saw somebody on Youtube who could do it”. So I did some searching and found Lauren, who incidentally created her own take on “Reminiscence” not too long ago. She was happy to work together with me on this track for some great flute and whistle parts. Or as Lauren notes: "This is my first time participating on an OCRemix track and it's been a great experience. I really appreciated working with Jorrith, even when we kept running into the technical limitations of my instruments. I think it was a learning experience and a discovery process for both of us in the best possible way, and I'm really thrilled with how it turned out!" As fate would have it, in the related videos I found Joy’s vocal cover of “Reminiscence” and it was so good and moving that I immediately approached her if she would be so kind to re-record for me. Again, a very enthusiastic reply and another great performance. Or as Joy sums it up: "I was really thrilled when Jorrith reached out to me about this collaboration and I was honored to work with these amazingly talented musicians. It was a lot of fun to record and I'd love to be part of something like this sometime again.” At that point I basically felt that my remaining MIDI parts weren’t good enough anymore and that I needed more real instruments. I approached Trev, who also claimed a track for the album, for the violin and string parts, and XPRTNovice, who I worked with before, and again happy faces and very skilled and inspiring performances. Trev agrees: "I recorded my parts with an SM57 in my violin studio in Chapel Hill NC, where I teach and practice. The violin is of the 19th century and crafted in Mittenwald, Germany. I really love this track selection for its orchestration and beautiful harmony, and there one section where I overdubbed myself 16 times to emulate a string section. I'm happy I could contribute!" I really feel all these performances did the track a lot of good and you hardly notice the MIDI in the background anymore So in hindsight this track came together as a set of stumblings, happy accidents and collaborations with great artists that are very cool people to work with. And I think it shows in the end result. I really dig it and it wouldn’t have been nowhere as good with these talented performers. Was it worth all the hard work of coordinating, synchronising and playing producer? You bet! Full cast: Flute and penny whistle: Lauren the Flute Vocals & lyrics: JoyDreamer Violin(s): Trev Acoustic guitar: XPRTNovice All the other stuff: Jorito Lyrics: Do you remember? Do you remember? Do you remember that time? Fate suddenly brought us closer than we ever really could see. Fate suddenly turned you to wander, wander together with me. Fate taught us to share our secrets, to always keep fighting as one. Fate taught us that though you are grieving always believe that we'll move on. Face our fears together and cry our tears together Through all these years together, you see. Laughing out together and being proud together Without a doubt together we'll be, you and me... Bye, Jorrith
  19. Woah. Lots of cool ideas here and pretty nice sounding original vocals. Don't think the synth work is really jiving with the rest of the soundscape, and some of the vocals are chopped weirdly, but this has tons of promise - Emunator Remixer Name: Order of Týr Real Names: Jordan B.

Adding original vocals was natural not only because that's our normal MO but also because the original track is perfectly divided for easy transitions and clear, distinct sections. The breakdown was added as a way to bridge the two halves of the song and to break it up from feeling too repetitious. The three of us are located far apart from each other (Chicago, IL, Memphis, TN, and Chattanooga, TN), so the arrangement, recording, and mixing processes took place collaboratively over the Internet. --- Jordan B.

After rewatching some of the stages, I found where I did Polar Kamrous's stage, and I really liked the BGM in that stage. I didn't really 'get' how good it was back then, because at that point, well... I didn't even write music yet! I decided to look through the Mega Man Zero 2 soundtrack, and I figured out that that track was called 'Ice Brain'. It's such a catchy track, now that I hear it in 2015. Shariq finds this to be the best track in the game, IIRC! After 3 years of writing music with Zebra2, I finally bought a new synth called 'Serum' by Xfer Records (wait, it's not Zebra2?), so I really wanted to make a complex glitch hop-ish atmospheric ReMix using Serum (and Zebra2) to make plenty of new bass sounds (I was making this track at the same time as my Vampire Variations III track, so that's why I used Serum in both). I took the parts of the melody that I thought were the most catchy, expanded on their contour, and switched up the rhythm to take the track in multiple new directions, with ambience that hits you where it counts, big pads, ... big everything, really. It's dubstep like you've never heard it before!"

  22. The live band elements are super tight, as expected! Like the Golden Axe cover, this doesn't exactly reinvent the wheel when it comes to Ice Cap Zone mixes, but you've brought a lot of fresh ideas to the table. The lead and rhythm guitars were certainly a highlight but nobody in the band was slacking on this track. My only two nitpicks on this - the lead synth is somewhat quiet in the mix, and I wasn't a fan of that trance rhythm fill that repeated itself a few times throughout the mix. To be honest, I thought it cheapened an otherwise-awesome cover because of how generic it sounded. No biggie, others may enjoy it but that was a weak link here. Pretty easy YES for me. Love the video, definitely excited to see what you come up with next! YES

  24. Contact Information Your ReMixer name: HeavyViper Your real name: Hal Binderman Your website: http://www.soundcloud.com/heavyviper Your userid: 32639 Submission Information Name of game(s) arranged: Snatcher Name of arrangement: Acoustic Jam at the Lucifer Alpha Name of individual song(s) arranged: BIO HAZARD Additional information about game: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snatcher Link to the original soundtrack: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bhg404vGork (MSX2 ver.) Comments: I often find myself figuring out melody lines from games during my guitar practice, and recently I managed to figure out this chilling little number. BIO HAZARD is a perfect mood-setter for Snatcher's introduction, in my opinion - ominous and mechanical. After recording a few test racks, I decided to go for an "acoustic jam in a hazy, quiet bar" kind of feel. It only really started coming together when I was about halfway through recording the guitar tracks, with the bass synths and drums laid down as finishing touches. It came off feeling a lot looser and warmer than the original, but I think it retains the characteristic eeriness. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bhg404vGork
  25. Very airy textures and atmosphere, this has a lot of promise on the soundscape side of things. Some very cool original accents, backing arpeggios, and harmonies are really interesting expansions on the original source to give it a more ambient tone. In that regard, I think this is a very enjoyable attempt. There are a couple of issues I'm picking up on this track that hinder it overall. 1:03 brings in some very unrealistically sequenced choir patches that do not fit naturally with the rest of the mix. Take a look at the decay/release on those samples and see what you can do to smooth them out and make them play more naturally. 1:06 also contains some very awkward sine pluck melodies that don't melodically fit with the rhythm of the track. The strings fit a lot better, even though the sample isn't realistic at all, the lo-fi string patch you're using has a very natural, brass-like attack/decay that works great. The rest of the patches sound great to me! On the arrangement side, there's something ultimately un-fulfilling about the dynamic curve here. I'm not implying that you NEED to bring in a beat to this song, but the transition at 2:01 really begs for some kind of increase in energy around that point, and you definitely hint at it with the transitions and minor auxiliary percussion. From that moment up until 2:58, even though you add on plenty of unique flourishes and ideas, the track feels like it stagnates because the dynamic curve stays relatively flat. Something to amp up the energy level (without compromising the chillout mood of the track) during that last section would really drive the track home IMO. Also, on repeat listens, I'm finding that the sine lead, although it sounds excellent, is leaned on too heavily with this arrangement. I'm not going to call this a case of copypasta, where you use the same sections without any variation, but the same melodies are repeated wholesale many times, so even though the track is evolving around it, the leads need some more substantial change-ups to keep from becoming stale. Very cool track with a couple of flaws that keep it from reaching its full potential, IMO. I'd love to see this again with a bit more freshness to the leadwork and overall dynamic curve, and some polishing on the choir and that awkward melody at 1:06 if you can. Good luck! NO (resubmit!)
