  1. Minor update: still working on your suggestions! percussion hasn't really been my strong point but I will do my best to implement them well here's also an update to one of the parts of the song. its short, but gives u an idea where im heading
  2. Hey guys, I haven't been on OCR in forever. The last project I worked on (and lost from an HDD failure) was my Dire Dire Docks remix back in 2011. Ive still been poking around here and enjoying the new WIPs. Anyway intros aside, im tackling the Dialga/Palkia battle theem from Pokémon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum. I haven't gotten very far and only put about 6 hours into the project, but I wanted to know from you guys how it works out so far in terms of production and arrangement. since the stories the same ill just quote what I put on youtube: THE WIP *NEWEST*: OLD WIPs: THE SOURCE: the intro of my song is @ 1:57 in the source 0:40 of my remixing is at @ 1:40 in the source its a little backwards in my remix but it sounded good at the time
  3. Still onboard for Ice Water? https://docs.google.com/document/d/1bCLR3NYOQMvNJjJZq7nZwC5s2M3Cz_EKCWzNv8eu6WM/edit?authkey=CKOhkIML

    Tryin' to get it an official project forum by the end of the month so we can get rollin', if you're still interested.

    Sincerely with Thanks,

  4. Sounds good so far. What I think you really need to do is split up your sounds. They sound like they are all coming from the center, which is fine and all, but I feel like you're not using enough of the available sound space and automation. Here's my quick rendition of your intro: http://tindeck.com/listen/msqg It's basically a 3x oscillator w/ a synth bass that fades in. I automated the modx on the synth bass and osc#1 and osc#2 get a volume change as the intro progresses. The sound is split left and right channels. There's also a slide note on the 3rd bar that adds a little variation. I think this would make a big difference in your music, if you choose to use it. Otherwise, good work! I look forward to seeing more updates! . . . . . . .
  5. OK I wanted to thank you guys for your continued support throughout this remix and I'm back with a partial update. This update is an overhaul of the second half of the song, and should address percussion issues (balance and arrangement -- I'm also working on adding some toms in there for variation) Also I have listed to my old versions and admit that those transitions are just way too hard and really take away from the song. This remix is becoming more of a hybrid-orchstra/synth and I think it works pretty well! SO here's that partial update and PLEASE comment! This one's important. If you like this, I'll go back and continue updating the rest of the song like this! Oh, and this sounds extra sweet if you have a good pair of headphones (you know, the ones that filter out those extra high-frequency noises and give you a little more bass) UPDATE: http://tindeck.com/listen/pzgv SOURCE:
  6. This sounds great! A couple things that bother me are the frequencies in that sweeping atmospheric pad synth thing that opens the intro. That "woo" "woo" at some points seem too loud and carry this unnecessary frequency that hurts my ears. Should be toned down or cut a little bit. You have a pretty good arrangement so far and definitely look forward to seeing more updates!
  7. I'm really hoping that you're still working on this song! I can't wait to hear the update(s)
  8. Damn I wonder how many of us actually bothered to add each others friend codes. I added 2 when this thread first came out. Now theres just so many!
  9. You definitely have the right idea, but it needs a lot of work before it becomes something that sounds better to someone other than yourself. Firstly, I wouldn't rely on using the Sytrus Distorto Guitar that much, the reverb and effects on that is nice when played by itself, but once you have it playing with other instruments, things get really muddy really fast. In fact, I wouldn't use any of those preset generators because they just don't work well unless you know how to modify the FX outputs, which I assume you wouldn't right now. I'd suggest you watch some FL Studio tutorials on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/ste1438 This guy does a really good job explaining how you can improve your song, and even goes through the trouble of doing the good vs bad so you can hear the difference for yourself!
  10. I'm back again! I want to thank everyone who's commented so far and I owe it to all of you for keeping up with the updates and giving me great feedback! Thank you mods for your time and speedy review! As of right now, this thread is now back into WIP status. For this update, I went back and found that so many notes are playing just way too loud and exceeding 0 dB. I finally got around to each track and fixing that. Additionally, I've also added a cleaner, higher quality orchestra kit into the mix (I'm keeping some of the old crashes because they are thick sounding). I also dropped the mid frequencies some more as they really seemed to bother me on these speakers (they still sound good on headphones) A few parts of the song are still unfinished, but you should get the basic idea of what I will accomplish. So I hope you guys enjoy this re-re-mastered version and I could use some more tips or critique on polishing this up! UPDATE: http://tindeck.com/listen/hfdk <--- OLD SOURCE:
  11. oh man my dire dire docks remix is NOTHING compared to this masterpiece NICE!

  14. Ahh thanks for the awesome mod review guys! I'm working on this problems now. What I think was happening with the distortion was that I had 2 instances of soft clipping that seemed to be messing with the peaks! The snare will need some volume adjustment and I agree the kick is a bit too loud and kinda sticks out like a sore thumb. The drum track on the first half of the song will need re-do as well (it's kinda hard to keep it at a medium tempo without going crazy) The mastering actually didn't come out as well as I wanted because I ended up splitting the sounds up by group, making volume adjustments, and gluing it back together. It sounded good at the time, but it kind of threw the song off a bit. So I'm scrapping it and going back to the original rendering in FL studio. As for the the mid range frequencies I will have to do something about that. That might be another reason why some of the sounds come out a bit muddy
  15. Sounds more like a reinstrumentation than an arrangement
