  1. Awwww yeah, this is one of my favorite VGM sources ever. The arrangement you've done here is simple, but I think it's probably substantive enough to pass muster. I'm not a fan of the ultra muddy sound, though--it's really honestly kinda hard to hear at a normal volume. This could do with some mastering love for sure, at least, and (possibly) a different piano patch, if this was recorded via MIDI. Thinking about how this would sound next to other piano pieces OCR has published, I suspect the listener would have to drastically adjust their listening setup in order to make it seem as though it fi
  2. Everyone else has already said the good things--this thing got me ready to kick some punk all over the map with my ultra-grind-leveled team, yo. No complaints here--solid orchestral work, and definitely one of my favorites from you, Alexandre! YES
  3. ^ doesn't get the joke. also vocal haters are so 2005, c'mon, get with the program. I enjoyed this, especially with the Zappa-esque stylings. We need more of those around here.
  4. This is still one of my personal favorite OC ReMixes of all time.
  5. Have you pimped this to the CHIPTUNES = WIN crowd yet? I suspect they'd really dig it. Nice work!
  6. Odd time signature stuff? I'm immediately a fan. Love how you handled that part of this mix. Plus one to Larry's crit about the piano sound--would you consider switching over to a Rhodes electric piano patch or something instead? I think it would fit really nicely with the chill DnB textures. It's also much easier to find a usable soundfont or something that won't break the bank. I'm not sure it's too repetitive necessarily, as I think the arrangement brings some new elements on the second time around, but I do agree that it wouldn't hurt to spice it up even more. Also, there's a section
  7. Hey, that was pretty cool and enjoyable. Got kinda repetitive after a while, since you used basically the same drum loop over and over, but for background music it worked nicely. Thanks for sharing!
  8. Hooboy. This could be bad. Dude definitely is in violation of copyright himself, and then that of course screws up the copyright system...yikes. also, sucks that you have to get messed up by this. :/
  9. Oh gosh, just a few seconds in and I'm already grinning, tapping my feet, and bobbing my head. This is a good sign. Let's see--fun brass stabs, DAT SLAP BASS, some organ, energetic groove...and hi yourself, Kirby! Yeah, this arrangement is just too much fun. None of the technical nitpicks mentioned above really stood out to me, so yeah--definitely gotta pass this one! YES
  10. those analog synth sounds, tho. Arrangement is on point. I definitely know the original's there, but it's not a cover. Soundscape is gorgeous, I'm getting a very Vangelis sort of feel from it. Honestly, I'm gonna -NO- this one, based on one single thing--that hard-panned percussive bit acting as the off-hat in my left ear. If it were quieter and maybe if it were to alternate between left and right ears, I'd be fine. However, as-is, it makes the entire song feel off balance, and it goes on throughout most of the track, so I'm feeling off kilter nearly the entire time. Heck, even balance
  11. Eh, I figure it doesn't really matter which theme I choose, to be honest--I'm unfamiliar with all this stuff, so there'll be a learning curve no matter what. I just went with stuff that seemed like it would fit with a variety of chord progressions, since I'll have to meld it with other music every time. Also, I just realized that we have a Core(y) of Michael Jordan. Booyah, prepare to get dunked on, suckas!
  12. I like big sounds and I cannot lie. An EDM track that doesn't have a brickwall on it just doesn't fit into the rest of EDM, and that's not going to change anytime soon. Like Avaris said above, it's subjective and should be handled on a per-case basis. Meanwhile, I'm gonna be over here with my limiters and my compressors making phat and tasty sounds.
  13. I know there hasn't been a lot of activity on this thread lately, but everything's pretty much done--we're just getting the website built and a few things ironed out. Should be seeing a release this summer!
  14. 1. Gravity Antonion (MMX8) 2. Cyber Geometry (MMX7) 3. Blizzard Wolfang (MMX6) 4. Flame Stag (MMX2) 5. Volt Catfish (MMX3) Get ready for the Desert Catz: bLiNd, Flexstyle, and KingTiger.
  15. Anyone want to give me a Wii U? :P

  16. Get a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2. If your laptop isn't a Mac (and even if it is), you'll have a really hard time getting both microphones to record at the same time if you're plugging them in via USB. With a 2i2, you can record two channels at once. I own one, and use it all the time to record vocals--it's clean, drop-dead easy to set up (as audio interfaces go), and rock-solid. Also, for basic podcasting (if you're just doing some sort of voiceover with no extra processing or music, etc.), you don't need anything more than Audacity. Here's a link to that: http://sourceforge.net/projects/audacit
  17. Congratulations to you and your wife (?) for another precious life to take care of--and congratulations especially to her for delivering that colossus of a baby! Also, as someone who lives in the city of Phoenix, I heartily approve of your name choice.
  18. Wish I could be there to spin at the booth again for this one, but I'll have to make the trip in spirit instead of in person.
  19. OCR-level good? Yeah, definitely feeling this one. I'm not sure it's your very best work, Justin, as I think the concerns voiced re: snare, repetition, are valid, but still it's definitely front-page worthy. Is stronk track. Many approve. such YES wow
  20. If I had the money at this moment, I would spend it on this. Unfortunately, I have not got money.
  21. Ooh, that's a good idea. Hoping I actually have time for this when it hits, lol. (I'll be out of the country for a couple weeks in August, with very limited access to music tools.)
  22. I'm not an artist, so I can't give meaningful feedback necessarily, but I dig this stuff!
  23. Oh. Right. I do now see the part where he said he didn't own Kontakt, haha. #derp Investing in Kontakt is one of the best things you can do as a computer musician but that's neither here nor there. The other orchestral percussion in my toolbox right now is from Nine Volt Audio, but I don't know if there's anywhere you can even buy their loops anymore, since they went out of business. The libraries in question were the Action Drums series, if you can find 'em. Good stuff for the most part.
