  1. Hmm, I think y'all are being a tad harsh on this one. The track is certainly on the quiet side, but the balance of tracks isn't off, save for the lead guitar from time to time,and outside of a little ducking with the kick the production is quite good. The mix isn't perfect, but I don't think the bar is THAT high, here; the theme is easy to hear (which corrects the issue that this had last time), and nothing gets completely lost in the mix. The arrangement does leave roughly -4dBs of headroom, but that's a really easy fix - put the WAV through Audacity and amplify it, not something to reje
  2. Well to get started, you may look into the US legal system's definitions of "Fair Use", which allows for the use of material if it's used for educational purposes, parody, or sufficiently transformative, AND if there is no profit involved in redistributing the material. It's not a bulletproof, anything-goes silver bullet for all things remixing, but it is often the justification used for the distribution of rearranged music on OCR. If you have questions about the whole process, the basic wiki for fair use (and it's links) are a fair place to start, as well as looking at OCR's FAQ section
  3. Overall, the arrangement itself is competent, if too short (1:30 is a really short arrangement). The instrument quality and mixing does take this below our bar, though - the "big band" aspect has instruments that sound hollow and mechanical, with the reverb levels not really helping it sound more "real". The fact that the arrangement sans the piano portion sounds like an upgrade of the source also leave it sounding a bit on the conservative side, to boot. That piano solo, though... man, it's actually quite the diamond in the rough, there. It's got some real spice, it's well sequenced (if

  11. I really love the chords, I love the overall handling, the soundscape - I'll start by saying that I love this arrangement. I think some might find the static background a bit much, but I actually feel it's unchanging nature enhances the overall atmosphere, especially with the subtle changes that occur throughout. The only this I've got against this is... er, why is this so quiet? I checked; you can easily push ~10.5dB using an amplifier alone, and with minimal limiting you could easily get another 5 dBs without noticeable loss. This is just too quiet for OCR, and there's no reason for it.

  14. Oh hell yeah, this is a kickass arrangement of a really short source. I'll be the first to admit that the arrangement meanders, but the quality of the chips and blending of nice meaty drums with other modern synths more than make up for it. The source is in this in spades, but it avoids playing the same thing twice. Fill in another gap to my favorite Megaman game soundtrack with this excellent little tune? Yes, please! YES

ReMixer name: bsolmaz13 Name of game: Mega Man 3 Name of arrangement: Rock The Masters Name of song arranged: Stage Select Comments: I've always loved this short classic tune and wished many times it was longer and had more variety to it. So I set out to create just that myself. The track starts out in an 8-bit style -even gets to a recreation of the original at one point- and suddenly evolves into something modern. Essential to me was to add and alternate between enough newer elements so the track and it's samey (although awesome) melody doesn't get too repetitive. Also

  17. Not my style of music, so I'mma differ to others saying this is typical to the style so I can accept that a lot of the pumping in this is stylish. I've heard things in this genre before that sounds like this so... yeah, I'm going to place that in the "Not my taste, but not necessarily bad" category. I can't give the copy/pasta a pass on this, though; the song is quite short, and a good portion of the song is simply a repeat of the body. More could (and should) have been done to distinguish it from the first half of the song, because with something that has as little change to the soundsca

  19. Oh, neat - the game isn't released yet, but this sounds pretty slick. Quick question: you used the "Submitted" tag, but I don't see it in our inbox (actively mulling through it, have been for a spell). Were you planning on submitting this to OCR? It would be a shame to miss it because of a misunderstanding. If you'd like to submit, you can find instructions for it here. If not, sounds pretty neat regardless so thanks for sharing it!

  23. Well, honestly I think this sounds great - the production values on this are pretty high, and there are some neat textures in the background that add some flavor to an otherwise already exciting battle track. There are two issues that make this problematic for OCR, though. first, despite the change from orchestral to chiptronic, it does still sound identical to the source. I acknowledge the small arpeggios in the textures that try to help this stand out, but the tempo, the structure, the... well, everything else is note-for-note the same as the source. I'm going to call this one too cons
