  1. I would hope so, Matt is better than me at everything. Thanks for giving it a chance, at least.
  2. Hello everyone, plato here. I just bought a new computer and can now record video again (the CPU was completely wrecked on my last one and I haven't had an income until recently), so I've rebooted my behind the scenes series on youtube. There was only one OC ReMix related entry on there (my super metroid remix) when my CPU went to sh-- a few years back, but I uploaded the next one in line yesterday after installing OBS. I have more stuff planned now that I can actually DO interesting stuff again, but one should never announce something unless it's done. I am using the "single to promote upcoming finished album" clause of the rules here, because the remixes I will be posting in the near future are all done and already posted on OC ReMix. DERP. The Guardian Legend - Miria's Ascent Schism Tracker video: https://youtu.be/WkRsfEl1vqg My life came to a halt when this happened, taking on more jobs as a producer was impossible and I was pretty bored with having to pre-render tracks when mixing with VST. Anyhoo, here's for the future.
  3. Thanks for the kind words. This is not "normal" trance, no. It's a combination of deep trance and dream trance. Two sub-genres no-one ever cares about.
  4. As I submitted my first remix in late 2007, which was posted in 2008 I was not on your CD, but it made me realize that it's been 10 years, holy hell. And yes, indeed; A big thank you to all the veterans who inspired me to submit in the first place. pre-2008 ocr shaped me and my later contributions. I still remember the first time I found an OC ReMix on ... hrm *cough* dc++.
  5. This reminds me of another user on SoundCloud. They haven't contacted me, but they have liked my Solar Jetman remixes with at least 5 different accounts. They're obviously the same person, but with a new account every time, and it creeps me out even though my case is rather tame compared to yours. Hope you get them to stop.
  6. Thanks! Glad you liked it. About the bass synth, haha. Yes Indeed, it's a weird sample to use in that section, but it was part of the original loop (that i mentioned) so I guess I'm just used to it after a decade (LOL). Glad it didn't ruin the experience for you Cheers
  7. Hello again, OCR! Here's a new* remix from Legend of Mana that I just finished. * It started out as a loop back in 2008, made it a full length thing in 2015, and finished working on it now after putting it aside for... a year or so. What do you think? Cheers, Jonas
  8. Hello! I forgot to post here, so here i go. Made a short chiptune / drum & bass track called Stop. my first original dnb track in years, don't know what else to say. What do you think? cheers
  9. Sure! It's the main battle music (not castle) that plays in woods, fields & caves. It hasn't been remixed a lot (despite being quite catchy imo). And the zelda 1 reference is on purpose, I've included it in all my zelda remixes so far (in one way or another) The arp isn't included in the source, so it's my take on the chord progression. And yes, I understood what you meant with the abrupt cut at the end, I consciously set the master volume to 00 for that effect. that's an interesting point, I didn't think of it like that. I have a thing for music that's a bit mechanical and "naked", though, as you said.
  10. Hello! First off, thanks for the feedback! 0:31 was not a mistake, it's all as it should be. It's a halftime, single iteration of the main beat, maybe just to troll the listener a little and keep it interesting I don't know what you mean by naked, could you elaborate? Like, lack of reverb or modulation? The fading was also on purpose, I wanted it to cut off abruptly, since the entire track is so short I felt like a long outro would feel out of place.
  11. Hello again! I was cleaning out some of my files and I found this almost finished Zelda II remix that I had forgotten about (from late 2016). So I added an intro and uploaded it! Can't submit it yet, since I just submitted my Final Fantasy remix, but I will as soon as the sub cool down is over. Comments & Feedback appreciated Cheers!
  12. Hello! This is a remix that I just posted on SoundCloud and submitted to OCR. It started out as a plain Jenova remix, but after messing around with it and adding some harmonic layering from Find Your Way (FF8) onto the chords and started messing with the chord coloring, it sounded cool enough to me so I added a section that is more centered around that source in the middle of the track. What do you think? Do the sources work well together? Cheers, Plato
  13. Hey guys n gals! This tune started out as a test, after I had played a riff on my guitar, i wanted to hear what it would sound like with a beat underneath it. Later turned it into a full tune. Cheers!
  14. Hello again, OCR. Finished off 2016 with a new progressivesque chiptune yesterday called Influx. It revolves around a single chord line, which forced me to be creative with progression and arrangement variations. I enjoy doing that kind of stuff, which you might already know, just to see how far you can push something simple and repetitive. Happy New Year! Here's to a 2017 full of music. - Jonas
  15. Well, it's neither meant to be dreadful, soothing or being jammed to at a club, so you got those down. Fair points, if experiment just for experiment's sake isn't your thing, then so be it; none of my mixes will probably be interesting to you, because that's what I usually enjoy doing.
  16. Heyo! Just posted another Chiptune-esque IDM track on my soundcloud. PS: No, zircon, it's not about you :'D I have no idea, tbh it's just a title. Hope you guys like it. Criticism and hate mail always welcome! - Jonas
  17. Hello again! This time I'm posting a track that I've worked on for a few years on and off, but was never really happy with the mix until very recently (thanks new monitors and headphones!). It's a chiptunesque idm/edm dance track (as per my usual style) made entirely in Schism Tracker. The title is a bit lengthy, I know XD Probably my longest title to date. Anyhoo, here it is! Enjoy!
  18. Thanks Glad you liked it, man. Thanks! Yeah, as stated, it was written on piano. I'm not sure if chiptune was a perfect fit, but hey - at least I tried.
  19. Hey Guys/Gals! Posted a weird chiptune yesterday on my soundcloud. Since it's not part of a bigger release or album I'm posting about it here. It's just a short thing i put together in schism tracker. I wrote the piece on piano originally but I wanted to know if it could be "chipified". I might record the original and post it as well at some point? No idea. Anyway, hope you like it. Cheers, Jonas
  20. So even as you admit that you went overboard, you're still trying to shame djp for pointing it out? You're contradicting yourself in a single post here. Careless is clearly an understatement. I can't even...
  21. Haha. Brandon called me close-minded. The irony! On Topic: While I don't think that OCR's money should go to anything besides the site itself, even in surplus, if Staff would be payed, it should be for the things I mentioned above.
  22. Last time I checked OCR Staff is made up of OC ReMixers, but I also want to point out that the Staff obviously do more than "us". Submissions, website work, organization, etc. I don't remember ever doing anything staff-like on here. If you think you are more useful than the ones operating the site, just because you're an active submitter, then you need to get your head out of your ass, sir.
  23. On Topic: If I have to pick a side, I agree with Chimpazilla, but generally I am in the same camp as DusK. I really don't care; Even if you were profitting from the ads I wouldn't mind, considering how much I have gained thanks to OCR.
  24. He's always been like this, don't worry about it. It's not a recent development. The first step to having a productive conversation on OCR is to ignore Brandon.
  25. Hey guys! As some of you might know already, I play the bass guitar in a local band, where I've also functioned as the mixing engineer/producer of our debut album. It's done, and the first single just went live on youtube. It's nothing like platonist, don't worry. The halfnaked guy in the video is my close friend Dante, he's the songwriter/bandleader. I'm just a filthy minion. Hope you guys like it, we've been working for 3 years to make this happen. Cheers, Jonas
