  1. 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.
  2. 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!
  3. You guys rock! This track makes me feel like a badass listening to it. Well done, gentlemen.
  4. I'll reiterate - it's lovely. Well done, both of you. I'm especially digging the percussion today.
  5. Each time I've listened to this, I've had goosebumps and/or tears. Today is no exception. Gentlemen, well done.
  6. What. I thought this was the longest running April Fools. Guys. Gals. We did it! :D
  7. 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?
  8. 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.

    Skies of Arcadia OC ReMix Project Album - "Arcadia Legends"

    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.
  10. 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.

    How Significant Is Forum Feedback In Improvement?

    Goals are important. Whether these goals are in pleasing some random peson that gave you feedback, regulars on the feedback board, the judges, your peers, project directors, or yourself doesn't really matter so long as you're challenged to develop as you try to meet them. (Tangential, mostly for staff: we could have a chat about the prefixes, if finished vs. wip sufficiently communicates the type of feedback people want, or if there should be a "destroy me with thorough critique so I'm forced to learn and apply new things and improve".)
  12. Screw it. Screw everything. This is never getting finished. We might as well call it quits and just drop the files somewhere. Don't think I haven't thought that way. But now...

    Advice on Channeling Creativity from Anxiety

    I cycle between creative phases. Sometimes I can write with ease. Sometimes I can't. So then I do something else. It might not be music, I have other interests as well. Music-related things I do when I can't write new stuff: Mix old stuff (something will eventually be finished, for sure) Create cool new sounds Making old cool sounds into presets and sorting those Find new cool sounds in synth preset patches and such Study, eg on youtube, new techniques and concepts Experiment with new techniques and concepts Discover new music to listen to and get inspired Play along (poorly) with the music, be it my own or someone else's It can last quite a while, that non-writing phase, but it'll come back. It always has. It always does. Your shortage of ideas is similar. Do something else. Prepare for when you have ideas again. Develop your skillset and your tools while you wait.
  14. While we're all busy behind the scenes and none of the rest of you know anything about that... ...does anyone know anything useful about putting a listening party together? We had one for AOCC which was a lot of fun, and while a behemoth like this is quite the endeavor to do a live show-type listening party, something where we listen together would be fun. Anyone interested? Anyone know anything useful. And feel free to interpret the question as a hint that the release is near.
