  1. Thanks for the advice. I don't expect to finish my mix anytime soon, and even when it is done, I doubt I can make it acceptable, but I'll try.
  2. Well, I'm definitely not new to OCR. I've been around since 2005. However, I just recently decided I'd try my skills at remixing. However, I have extremely, I mean EXTREMELY limited equipment. I am limited to a Yamaha DGX-500 and a voice recorder. Unfortunately, I know this won't get me anywhere. I have the program Sonar, but I have yet to learn how to use it as well as hook up my DGX-500 to my computer. I'm a complete newbie to remixing and this site's forums and how the things flow around here, etc. So please be gentle. Anyway here's what I'd like advice on. 1. My equipment. With a DGX-500, voice recorder, and Sonar, is it possible for me to send a worthy remix? For those curious, this model of the Yamaha Keyboards I own has 5 mini-slots that I can record different instruments in to. However, I have to play each instrument in real time so it is a huge challenge to stay on tempo, etc. 2. My first remix. I am planning on remixing Jinjo Village from the awesome N64 game, Banjo-Tooie. Is there a way I can upload what I have so far, regardless of how bad it is, and is that permitted here? Also, my remix does NOT have any variation at all from the original song. When it is done I will add original quirks in there, but I just want some input on how I'm doing the instruments and stuff in general. 3. How are things judged here? Are they judged according to the remixer's talent and equipment and sound quality and the like? Anyway thanks for the tips. I hope I can find a way to upload what I have so far of my Jinjo Village mix... even if it's nowhere near good enough for a remix's standards.
  3. For its genere, very well done. A little repetitive, but it has some nice quality to it and has a nice beat that makes you want to dance. The applause was a nice effect. I'm a little brain-dead right now. So, I can't quite think of much else to say, other then my overall impression of this peice was positive.
  4. Well, I'm a long time listener, first time reviewer, and I think I'll start reviewing now. I've had this account for a while but never really got around to posting anything. Overall, very talented piano playing here. The beginning was an attention hook, very nice way to start out with a solo peice. The song held my attention despite the repetidive melody and it was ful of emotion and style. With piano music I usually don't like it in a steady beat- this one didn't stick to any specific beat yet it still kept flowing at an artistic level. There isn't anything that I think I can critique on this one, I think its just about as good as it can get. So, nice work! I'm not sure if I'm making much sense, I guess I'm just typing out my disembodied thoughts and overall impression. So, I hope you can make sense out of that.
