  1. Sorry it took so long to give this a listen. Bad year. Listened to the most recent version in the thread, 9a. I'm not familiar with the sources so I'll focus on the sound. Let's talk about the first 5 seconds. The sounds used are all good enough, you shouldn't need to replace any of them. But pick a lead and make that the most prominent instrument. The pad swells into being rather loud. The piano plays the most identifiable melody, but it's rather muffled. The thing in the high range is bright and loud. Which is the lead? From how it's mixed, I'd say it's the high-pitch thing. From
  2. https://ocremix.org/album/96/golden-sun-a-world-reignited I should be in there, among arrangers I guess. Just noticed I'm not. Same on vgmdb.
  3. Yeah, it inadvertently turned into a bit of a time capsule. Clem, dude, mad props for your series of album reviews. :D
  4. I wrote a bit on feedback in my remixing guide, back when. It's less about giving good feedback and more about identifying it among the feedback you get, but it might still be useful to you. The checklist mentioned above. I think good feedback comes from good listening. This means understanding what you're listening to, understanding the artist's intention but also a typical listener's reaction and negotiating some kind of useful response out of that. Knowledge, whether music theory, audio engineering, performance, sound design, mixing, music history or anything else is also usefu
  5. Dude, you have every reason to be proud of this one. It's great. It always puts a smile on my face when I hear it.
  6. Sounds like a blast. One of the ways to tell that you've improved is being able to tell that your old work was worse. There's always more to learn. But it's easy to forget how far you've come already. Enjoy your music making, dude.
  7. Long-time necro post! I have no memory of this thread, but now I want to hear your old song. Do you still have it saved somewhere? It'd be fun to compare.
  8. Same as Jorito on point 1, although I won't just take the lead melody, but other elements in isolation. A cool bassline can be a lead melody. Or vice versa. I'll then iterate on whatever elements I want to use, over original backing, or in isolation. It helps to be able to play an instrument here, even if you're not very good at it, as it's much faster to iterate on the parts you're using that way. Just improvise, jam, mess around, and you'll come up with a lot of cool ideas that you'll want to incorporate into an arrangement. This is why my arrangements end up a bit loooong. Then it
  9. Frederic's delay trick works great if what you want is a pan effect (the Haas effect), since that's what it'll do in stereo. If summed into mono after that, it might have phase issues, something of a robotic sound. Not always a bad thing, but not how to get a good guitar sound. Playing and recording twice would make sure the waveforms don't line up, and means chorus and delay effects aren't necessary for separation.
  10. This new plugin might have broken the tags on the wip board. At least on firefox, mac. They're gone, save for work-in-progress, which is now only "work-". Tag numbers and colors still show.
  11. I'm noticing a great variety of games being remixed and posted here. This is great. But there aren't that many replies to them. Quick reminder, things you can do to get replies on your mix: Comment on other people's mixes. They might return the favor. Do unto others, lead by example, that stuff. Ask a forum regular or staff member to have a listen. So long as we're not swamped, we can often make the time for a quick listen and catch something you've missed. Title your thread informatively. I like Seth Skoda's inclusion of "SEGA Genesis" in his threads. It immediately tells me so
  12. Oh look, the forum notifies you when someone replies to the thread you're replying to. Neat. From what I can tell, everything Julien just said is true. The good and the bad. My quick listen suggests you could work on the mix and its sound a bit. Frequency balance. Levels. Find a good reference track, same style, same sound as what you're going for, and mix accordingly. The crashes sound especially dull, and things are panned so much that there's little energy in the center. I'm not an evaluator anymore, and I'm not sure what's public information and what isn't, but I think I can shar
