  1. I'm still around... as a matter of fact, I discovered the ending to Mega Man's Soccer!

  2. Yeah, it does have quite a bit to do with the limited space the Korg DS-10 has. You can save many songs on it (up to about 18 ) But each song is only 16 patterns with 16 steps per pattern. That goes by pretty quick at faster tempos especially. Sorry that blip shards hurt your ears. I used a metalic hi-hat sound which also doubles as some extra blips when pitched at different octaves. I thought the concept was cool, but then I may have over did it a bit. In any case it's nice to know some 8 bit collective members are hear as well . I'll look you up on 8bc and comment on some tracks. Also Meteo
  3. I'm sorry that you feel that way about the mixing, but there was barely anything done to the original tracks. Maybe some compression or a bit of extra delay here and there, but these tracks were made to be enjoyed on a pair of headphones as you would hear them on your DS more or less. Mixing has never been a big deal to me, which is why I got into chiptunes and working within limitations. OCremix was fun to try to make things for a time. Still, honestly I got tierd of trying to push myself to be a perfectionist in mixing/EQ only to arrange music by someone else. Besides, with my current comput
  4. Jredd!!! You should come back and check this more often. Hope all is well, bro.

  5. I have recently gotten a Korg Nintendo DS-10 Mini-album on line for a free download with a new net label called "Obscura Records." All the songs are done on one Nintendo DS and beefed up with minimal production/EQ. I hope you will enjoy this small album. http://www.obscura-records.com/releases/jredd_superbit.html It's the first album I have ever released with a net label and if you like it please spread the word and leave some feedback on it. I did the album art myself as well . I also encourage you to check out the other artists on the site. You can check out the other releases here. http://
  6. Personally, for a decent guitar sound I find that I like to take a basic synth sound like a saw wave layered with a square wave and put some heavy amp distortion on it. Then, I add a phaze shifter effect or a light chorus effect on there and save this as an audio file wav/mp3. Then I put it back into the song and add another layer of distortion plus some light reverb and/or delay (echo). But that's just the sound design itself. More than half of it is how you play/sequence the sound. I'd make it a mono one note synth with a quick portamento glide. Then I'd add some vibrato to the tail end of l
  7. Hey man, I knew it was only a matter of time before I'd see you up here. One of your lead synths sounds pretty close to the distorted leads I like to use. I've always loved sounds like that and it works beautifully here. This mix takes a bit to get started, but that's how trance music seems to be. With it's builds and breakdowns, this song does a lot to keep the listeners attention. The mixing is also well balanced. I've also seen you come a long way from VG mix 2. Now we both have posted mixes on OCR. I'd say you are about at the point where production wise you have things down quite well, y
  8. I am not always a huge fan of excessive swearing but at the same time it's not about the words themselves but how they are used. However, in this instance it works because it seems more like you're using them to help the flow of well thought out lyrics and that you mean business rather than just spitting them out every other word to take up space if that makes any since . On the arrangement side I would say things are slightly minimal but in a good way . The light sine flute section and guitar improvisation really add a lot to this piece and I think the beat is cool and doesn't need much varia
  9. OVGMcon5 has begun! If you don't know what it is, basically the winner of the previous month creates a story/setting that specifically relates to common video game settings in some way. The contestants are given the challenge to compose original music based on how they interpret the story. Contestants are also encouraged to explain why they envisioned the music the way they did if they feel the need to do so. For information on this month's theme and signing up to participate go to the following page: http://versuscompo.com/forums/index.php?topic=171.0 For a summary the contest guidelines go
  10. I more or less echo what everyone else has said about this song. Fadeout ending or not, this is bad ass plain and simple. I was glad that you decided to toss a wip of this to me on OCR chat, I wish I could've said more constructive things but you pretty much blew me away even with the unfinished piece you had at the time . I think that it's great that you were able to win a contest, and I certainly look forward to more from you .
  11. Well, it certainly is interesting that this ReMix made it up here . Had it not been for a guy named Kung Fu Furby and his hilarious challenge, I doubt I would've thought to tackle Revolution X. This Remix was almost more like a joke at first, but somehow I actually really got into it and ended up spending way more time on it than I thought I would. I can't help but feel a little silly about this being here, but at the same time I think it is pretty awesome. Considering the cheesiness of the game, and the lackluster soundtrack I think I am pretty happy with how this turned out over all. The voc
  12. I've seen a lot of your mixes over at VG mix X and I generally enjoyed them. I wondered if I'd ever see one here . Sure it's a bit rough and the transitions aren't the most seamless in the world. But that's not what sells this one for me. The arrangement of the individual themes are all very different and very good. The thing I like about this track is it feels spontaneous like a good jam session. It's the kind of improvisation that's just plain fun . Personally, I'd probably enjoy breaking out my keyboard and jamming with a band like this because it sounds like you guys had a blast making an
  13. Well, I enjoyed it over all. Any nitpicks that I could point out have already been addressed. It was a strange mix for sure, but I enjoy strange things. Hell, if you got it on here you must be doing something right eh? Seriously though, keep em' commin' man! Nice work.
  14. I love how absurdly synthy these guitars are. It's like 16-bit amped. I seriously wonder if someone submitted something arranged this well but with samples like this for today's OCRemix standards if it would actually pass. I would go out on a limb and say probably not. But hey, now we've got remix tha sauce as well as this site so it's all good. This song totally makes me want to tackle some mega man music but with the sounds that I have ! I have a strange love for synthesized metal stuff when it's done well.
  15. Yep. I've reached a new low! I jumped on this silly bandwagon because it streams music. If any of you crazy OCR folks want me as a friend for some odd reason go for it. I probably won't check it often, nor do I plan on starting some kind of blog. However, if you want to comment on the songs there or say hello I'll catch it eventually. http://www.myspace.com/jreddssyntheticedge Purely originals will go here. I might make another account for remixes and such. Hope you like my original work as well. Have a moderately acceptable Merry-o-birth-years giving-ster day!
