  1. Hey all, Just an update with some more links, in case anyone is interested. Amazon MP3: http://www.amazon.com/s/qid=1287460964/ref=sr_shvl_1-all?ie=UTF8&keywords=tuned%20logic&rh=k%3Atuned%20logic%2Ci%3Adigital-music%2Cn%3A163856011%2Cn%3A%21624868011%2Cp_n_feature_browse-bin%3A625150011 Last.fm http://www.last.fm/music/Tuned+Logic/24+Shades eMusic: http://www.emusic.com/album/Tuned-Logic-24-Shades-MP3-Download/12151612.html GreatIndieMusic: http://www.greatindie.com/ipnmusic/store/list.php?item_number=884502786071 Bandcamp will hopefully be up in the near future; I have no time! Haha. Anyway, even if you don't buy it, please have a listen on YouTube! I always appreciate comments/criticisms from fellow forum members so I can keep making better music (including better ReMixes ). Thanks again!
  2. So you're saying an initial tagging would be restricted to staff only, but then forum members would have to option to add tags? I think some sort of tagging system would be hugely beneficial. It would be neat to replicate the music genome project (aka Pandora Radio) in terms of the tag attributes, such as the type of beat, mood, etc... rather than simply genre. Typical genres aren't really helpful these days, IMO, since there's so much variety.
  3. Showin' some love to disco! I love this; it sounds fantastic. And yeah, a real sax would be awesome, but the current sample certainly doesn't break anything. Nice work!
  4. I came across a few articles you might find interesting. I would like to read your paper when you're finished. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?device=iphone&storyId=89565567 PC World's response to the above: http://blogs.pcworld.com/gameon/archives/006804.html http://www.openlettersmonthly.com/evolution-video-game-music/ http://moonandbackmusic.com/archives/2673 Cool timeline: http://www.dipity.com/cbc_adrian/personal
  5. Thanks for the kind words, Mustin! I just checked out Bandcamp, and it looks pretty awesome. I'll add my stuff there when I get a chance.
  6. UPDATE: Thanks for all of the comments, and I hope you enjoy the music! See http://tunedlogic.com if you haven't grabbed the album yet! Hey all, I just released my first album, and I think many of you would appreciate it; my style is heavily influenced by game music. These are all original pieces (with the exception of my cover song single), and they are all pretty different from each other. I had trouble classifying a genre for this album; it really has a bunch of different stuff; think of it like an OCR front page of originals Anywho, the iTunes link for both the album and the single is below. Many of you will probably recognize the song I covered in the single (it's not game music, and I apologize ahead of time, but the cover song is only available in the US; album is international). I hope you all enjoy it; this place has been great to me. The album will be available on Amazon, eMusic, CDBaby, and others in due time. http://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/tuned-logic/id393980110 Update: CD Baby Link: http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/TunedLogic Update 2 : You can listen to the tracks here: http://www.youtube.com/user/TLogicM Update 3, by popular demand:
  7. Ah, one of my favorite tunes! You did a great job here; the mood is a bit different from the original, though, which is neither good nor bad. The original was much more spacey and haunting; this mix is definitely more on the cheery side, but I really enjoyed it. I might do a MMX4/MMX5 remix soon. You've sparked my creativity
  8. Thank you all for the compliments and criticisms. I'm glad most of you enjoyed it, and to those who didn't due to lead choices, I'm sorry, and I understand exactly where you're coming from. Looking back, I would have changed the second lead (guitar) to something else, but I feel the main lead held the song together; without a powerful sound like that, this would have been a pure ambient piece with little energy; that just wasn't what I made this mix to be :/ Once again, thank you all for your comments.
  9. This is way too close to the original; in fact, it sounds a bit like a MIDI rip. Try learning the music and start from scratch. Besides the extra few clicks and beeps, I really don't notice too much that's different. Try adding your own parts and play with notes a little more.
  10. Hey everyone, this is essentially finished, but I thought I'd share with anyone who'd be interested before I sub it (which I will probably do). I'm really happy with how this turned out, so please enjoy! As always, comments are much appreciated.
  11. This is very well done for a first-timer; I really like your arrangement of this. If you want to add something non-invasive, I would suggest a very soft synth pad, which would add atmosphere to the music without detracting from the strings. Also, some very light percussion might sound good Oh, and maybe lower the strings' volume a tiny, tiny bit in comparison to the beginning of the song; they kind of startled me. Keep up the good work.
  12. I really like this; take out those few foul notes, though. In Garageband, you can add the Compressor plugin to each track. When you do, however, that alone will not make the red lights go away (which mean that the track is above 0dB). Decibel (dB) ratings don't ALWAYS correspond to volume. For example, something could sound not so loud, but it can still peak (get the red lights b/c it's over 0dB). You have to watch the meters with your eyes. Anyway, when you add the compressor, most likely the volume of the track will increase, but so will the dB level. To counter this, you can also add a limiter. I know Logic's compressor has a built-in limiter, and I think there's an option for this in Garageband as well. It takes a lot of practice to the get the volume levels where you want them while also not peaking. If you can't get a sound loud enough, just lower the volume of everything else enough that everything balances out. Also, as long as the entire output is not peaking versus the individual tracks, it isn't as big of a deal regarding harming speakers, but your song can still clip, which means you'll get undesirable noises in your finished product. The best advice I can give you is to practice, practice, practice. Experience is the greatest asset you can have as an arranger/composer/whatever. Best of luck to you!
  13. This is SERIOUSLY LEGIT! One thing though; the soundscapes are a bit dry. Try adding a pad or something in the background to fill the emptiness. That lead synth is KILLER, and I really love the mood you set with this; put the CT melody in there, too! Hehe. Please finish!
  14. This is strictly a WIP; it's nowhere near finished, but I want to gauge interest and see if I should finish this. I was working on it a while ago and recently added a bit to it. It's a remix of Chronopolis (an interesting take on an old Chrono Trigger fave) that currently has no remixes on this site, so I thought some might be interested. My mix is called Eternal Flux. Enjoy, and comments appreciated.
  15. Wow, great intro, and this is a great song by itself, but man, FINISH THIS!!! It has so much potential to be the most kickass Metroid mix ever.
  16. I started off with FL Studio 7 and a Yamaha also! This is much better than my first mix was though, kudos! Maybe add a rythmic/arpeggiated pad in the background to round out the rhythm, but this is a great start.
  17. I really like this; add a few more variations, and this could be awesome. Of course I am partial to this style of music, but I love it!
  18. Hmm I see. I didn't think there should be much bass in this either. I see it more as a world percussion type of song, and I didn't want to pronounce the bass, but then a couple of people on the WIP IRC said the drums weren't "there" enough. Any other opinions?
  19. I'm seriously on the brink of submission here, but can somebody please tell me if this is adequately mastered? I just plain stink at mastering, and I don't know if this is too tiring, too sharp, not bassy enough... I've listened to it so much that I no longer know what to think about it. I doubt I'll be going back to it again, so as long as it's adequately listenable, I'll sub it. Yes, I know it's too big; I'll trim down the bit rate. Thanks in advance. EDIT: Linkage: http://tindeck.com/listen/brhr By the way, if you think the previous version sounded better production-wise, let me know. Thanks!
  20. I take it you probably don't have a Mac because you tried Fruity Loops, but Garageband, to me, is by far the simplest DAW interface. It's limited on features, but just for recording, it gets the job done easily and quickly.
  21. Play Fire Red/Leaf Green first, and then play Gold/Silver.
  22. Thanks. Yeah, I thought the beginning could use a little more action, and I just wasn't feeling the lead. I just got Omnisphere, so I had to use something from that.
  23. Just want to say this is hot; it's much better than earlier versions I have. Please finish, Robotaki!
