  1. You sure you didn't hit the pitch slider by mistake? I've done that before, and thought nearly the same thing. It's to the right of the menu bar.
  2. I think I'm done my half of the bargain, I have everything in there now that I want. Flexstyle, check your PM please.
  3. Here's an updated version of my Mario Kart 64 WIP mix of Rainbow Road. I should just focus on this instead of like two projects at once, so I think I'll just work on this for a while. http://www.tindeck.com/listen/jdmo
  4. What's your stance on people using samples from someplace like say...freesounds.org? Or to put it another way....do you allow people to use Creative Commons samples in their Remixes?
  5. http://ocremix.org/info/Content_Policy Unless I'm missing something obvious, it looks to me that #7 directly conflicts with "B" under "Terms of Use". If not, maybe it needs a rewrite? I know I was confused as all hell when I read it...
  6. Actually, I'm doing Frosty Frolics...and I'm betting if it gets on, you people are gonna like it.
  7. Does anyone have any "monkey screaming" WAV files? I need some. Edit: Nevermind, I ended up sampling the monkey sounds from the ROM, which gave the same effect I was going for.
  8. I just wanted to say.....THANKS FOR CAUSING INSOMNIA EMUNATOR!!! I want to finish this (working on a new mix I hope gets on the CD)
  9. Oh believe me, I did NOT want to lose this song. To lose something over something so trivial...I nearly pulled my hair out lol
  10. I ran into a MAJOR problem. I wanted to work on my track this morning, which is SUPPOSED to sound like this: http://www.tindeck.com/listen/zebt ...but FL wigged out on me, and ruined everything: http://www.tindeck.com/listen/mfbp ...do you think I'll be able to save it? Edit: NEVERMIND, I somehow hit the pitch slider. I didn't know I did though, so....THAT'S a relief...
  11. Link Updated 10-28-2010 I think I was born to do this stuff, heh There's mostly original sounds in here. The arp bass, original. The arp that comes in, original, the strings are my favorite Sytrus preset "Platinum Saw". Sweepers, original...sound at the beginning, original. I'm going to make other sounds as I need 'em. http://www.tindeck.com/listen/vuoz
  12. I was trying to find that Sound Stretch thread, and I had downloaded the program earlier, so I figured I'd try and experiment with it a bit. First thing I did was make a crappy little 18-second jingle-thing: http://www.tindeck.com/listen/rwtc Then I loaded it into the Sound Stretch and stretched that out to 8:04, and...wow. I did a little post processing in FL though. Take a listen: http://www.tindeck.com/listen/tzdh I love this program now, heh
  13. Just a heads up, I might do either the FFIX boss theme: or "Never Return Alive" from Streets of Rage 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iX480gE3yls if I don't make Volume One, I'll go for Vol. 2. Here's a remix sample: http://ocremix.org/forums/showthread.php?t=31666
  14. http://www.tindeck.com/listen/wywp Whew. Finally finished! Special thanks to Zircon for making an absolutely gorgeous song in the first place, and all those remixers on YouTube for inspiring me to make one of my own. Also learned a lot of stuff while making it. Obtuse and Usa offered up a lot of help as well, so I thank them deeply too. Er, should I call the original "mainstream"? Because if I can, this'll be my first mainstream remix.
  15. I've listened to a bunch of other remixes so get a good idea of what I wanted to do, and I ended up going a mellow route. I love the original so much... Here ya go: http://www.tindeck.com/listen/sjxw (Link is not stable since I am constantly updating it; if link is not here check back in a few minutes) ---- Still trying to figure out what to do, but I think I know where to take it now. You can hear the start of that. Bass is WAAAY over there --> at the end because when I'm working on a segment, if something conflicts with what I'm doing, I just push it off to the side until I'm finished with it. In this case, I'm working on the arp. Made some artwork, which reveals the official name of the mix:
  16. OOPS! I'm sorry you guys, I totally forgot about this post! Anyway...woah.... Yeah, so I since have finished this, and Emunator thought it good enough to be on the bonus disc of the DKC3 album he's doing. So here's the finished version: Again, I'm sorry about this, I get so scatterbrained sometimes...I swear I'd lose my head if it wasn't on my body...
  17. I've got a compliment and a question. First off, even though mixes aren't posted on the judges forum, I have to give props to the judges. The verdicts I've read in there seem to be completely fair, and even though some judges may like the submissions and keep them to listen to, if they don't reach the benchmark set by the site, they don't get on. This tells me that as far as I can see, the judges are not biased at all, so great job you guys! Now my question. There's like a bazillion genres out there, but is the bar a tiny bit higher or lower depending on which genre is being judged, or is the bar equal across all genres? I kinda made a John Cage inspired joke mix and submitted a few years ago...
  18. I was reading the write-up (BIG props to DJP on not having any massive sugar intake before writing ), and I found a dead link in the sentence "I've been waiting to post this for a whole week now, as we really wanted visitors to check out the corresponding *album release* as well and maximize its visiblity, but I've had the first verse of the lyrics stuck in my head the whole time." The *'s denote the link in question. It's dead because the link looks like this: http://http//zyko.bandcamp.com/album/a-mild-suggestive-moment
  19. I'm (for now) making music as a hobby as well, but I'm aiming for a career in music. Lofty goal I know, but I'm making it a point to learn all I can about all kinds of techniques, and about FL as well. It's what I use, and I need to learn all I can about it. I'll get there eventually if I keep at it. Had a headstart too - I have been dabbling around with MIDI files since 1998, and since then to mid 2004, I've done over 110 compositions in MIDI format. Started using FL last year after I got pissed off at my software I was using (Don't ask, it's embarassing lol), so I know what I'm doing musically, heh
  20. http://www.tindeck.com/listen/bplk - Got a LOT of work yet to do. I'm pretty happy with the build-up, so unless I get some more ideas for it it's finished. However, I have JUST started the melody after that, and will get working on it again tomorrow. Learning lots of techniques from listening to other trance tunes on YT, such as what I call a "tone sweeper" which you hear in the buildup. Enjoy, so far, heh
  21. ALWAYS FLY ON BIG JETS. That is all. Small regional carriers use small planes (some of you might get a small plane for a short hop if you're changing planes less than 500 miles or so from your destination) which are sometimes cramped. One small plane we flew on (SAAB 340; not this one): was alright, except it had a godawful small lavatory that you will have problems in if you need to use the facilities on the flight. As I understand it, some 340s don't have one and use the space as extra luggage storage, though. Another nightmare was the godawful 1900s: It's a very good thing we only used this thing for a short hop, otherwise I might have gone insane. I was small when we flew on one, but you will have to crawl into it. BE SURE you get the 1900D, as it has a higher cabin. I haven't flown in a while, but I've been on these two and remember the drawbacks of both.
  22. My debut on ANY big CD, as a bonus track. This is the full completed version that will be on the CD...but as not to reveal TOO much... ...I intentionally made this preview file to make it sound extremely low quality. Not to worry I still have the high-quality, 160kbs song, but Emunator will have a WAV soon from me. So if you like this lo-fi version, the Hi-Fi version that will be a bonus track will be a whole lot better, I guarantee it. So without further blabbing, I present "Rocket Rave", a Rocket Run remix: http://www.box.net/shared/2x93f04vqn Like what you heard? Get the CD!
  23. I have a Mini DVD ready to go to Wes, and I will have it mailed by Monday.
