    Album Requests?

    I see you, ACO. I see you. Album projects have gotten stupidly ambitious. It'd be nice to see more shorter albums. One disc, some central tracks, unremixed pieces, remixers' favorites, themed around the bad guys or locations or something, done within a year or so by a handful of remixers who each do multiple tracks for a more cohesive sound. If I ever do another album, that's my approach. Narrow focus, small scope. Much easier. And maybe a stickied album requests thread in the remix requests, or a resurfacing album requests thread here in community could inspire people to make more shorter album projects. Nothing says they have to be ocr-style, either. Posted remixers can pimp them here anyway, and there are other outlets for this stuff too, eg reddit. Mods, thoughts? If you're particularly interested in the Rocket Knight Adventures album, necroing the album thread is showing interest. I liked how the sd3 project thread saw activity from people hoping and waiting for it. I'm sure others working on album project feel the same way about theirs. Even if the project is dead, thread activity can inspire remixers to have a look at the tracklist and maybe do a remix from the game independent of the album. So it's a remix from the game, even if it's not a whole album.

    Video Game Inspired EP

    Hi, I gave the tracks a quick listen. The heavier parts could use improved production. The choice of drum sounds don't quite have the aggression of the guitar, and the guitar could have more bite to it. The performance sounds fine to me; it's a mixing and sound design issue I'm hearing. Four Months sounds really down to earth and nice. There's a background noise in the drums, but for a track like that I don't mind it. It just sounds more organic, more alive that way. Might be annoying on headphones though. The melodies do indeed seem inspired by the snes era. I like that.

    **RESURRECTED** Paths Less Travelled: Terranigma

    Maybe I'll have a look at those available tracks.

    An OverClocked Christmas Vol. XII...

    Here's my source.
  5. This is superb. I probably said it better in the track comments in the album download, but I want to reiterate how cool this track is. It's a great source, and you've done it justice. Well done, guys.
  6. Are you talking about the staccatos or the electric bass? My writing all of it, except for the last minute or so, which is Moz'. Unless he changed something in my writing. It was a long time ago, I don't remember. I don't think he did. And it wouldn't have been as great without your instrumentation. Well done!
  7. You guys rock! This track makes me feel like a badass listening to it. Well done, gentlemen.
  8. I'll reiterate - it's lovely. Well done, both of you. I'm especially digging the percussion today.
  9. Each time I've listened to this, I've had goosebumps and/or tears. Today is no exception. Gentlemen, well done.
  10. What. I thought this was the longest running April Fools. Guys. Gals. We did it! :D
  11. Or we've spent the last 10 years trolling y'all. Seriously, this is getting exciting. But I have no idea how I'll feel when it's finally out. Relieved. Saddened. Ecstatic. Hungry. Proud. Embarrassed. Nostalgic. Any suggestions?
  12. Uh, I took a vacation from this subforum to finish the sd3 project, with other staff taking over covering this place. Evaluations have become somewhat less frequent since. But we didn't always have evaluators/mod reviewers/workshop mods/whatever, yet there used to be a lot more activity here. A bigger reason for the shift since ten years ago is that the community is spread out over multiple platforms. There's the forum, obviously. Then there's different social media, though these aren't that useful for crits. There's Discord, which has taken the role of the irc channels. There's the ocr YouTube, which is convenient but commnts are a far cry from the stuff in the reviews subforum here. Then there's also a shift in how people use the internet. Ten years ago, forums were a big deal. Nowadays, people interact via any of many social media platfoms instead, which is more geared towards person to person conversations, or broadcasting your status updates to everyone you know. That's not conducive to the kind of community ocr used to be. Left unaddressed so far is reddit, but it's largely anonymous which doesn't foster the kind of community ocr does, and ocr doesn't have a wip forum there anyway. And why bother with the latter? There are already music feedback subreddits, but these tend to either focus on the craft more generally, or get overrun with self-promotion posts. Basically, the internet has shifted away from forum communities. If you want to change that, start commenting on people's wips yourself. You're part of this community too. It's a good conversation to have, mods/admins can splice this off into a new thread somewhere, or move it into the workshop discussion thread I made, if you'd prefer this thread be only about your wip. Just PM and ask them. I figured I'd post here rather than keep the conversation private.

    Arcadia Legends - History

    Maybe my phrasing was overly dramatic in the sd3 thread. But people I haven't hard from in years are back in touch, so I'm not complaining. And things are going well, pre-release issues sorted out. But let me help this project out a tad and reiterate what Darkflamewolf said: provide some sort of contact info for the album website and project Trust me, it matters.
  14. Contributing remixers, check your emails and pms. I've tried to contact everyone. There's a few of you that Meteo has contact information for that I don't. If you're on the project, you should have been contacted by one of us by now. Please respond asap. If we've failed to reach you, it's even more important that you contact me ASAP.
