  1. What genre are you looking for? You state that you don't want what is already there, but it would help to find out what you are looking for. Do you have any particular instrumentation in mind?
  2. I'd love to come to something like this and y'know, put a face to some of these names. And hopefully do the same for people who might see my name pop up in the future (or who already have). And although I lived near Baltimore for most of my life (down in Odenton), since joining the military I am now halfway across the country. Sucks. Really does. I knew I shoulda changed plans and tried out again for Peabody, lol.
  3. Well, for a first timer, I don't think I did half bad. This is all about refining our talents, and we all figure we have talent, which we all do. Thanks for all the great reviews, it's going to help me work on refining the piece itself. I personally didn't try this to aim for first, I was aiming for the reviews. That's what it's all for, really.
  4. Ouberion's Judgment 1. Initial Thoughts The main reason I started arranging and orchestrating music, not to mention composing my own, was to follow exactly the same thought process that OverClocked follows: That of ensuring Video Game music is seen as something more than just another paycheck for someone. I remember having to do everything by piano, sitting back and playing Wave or MP3 files of music off the internet repeatedly to get all the notes I needed. Now, with the advent of places like the vgmusic.com archives, people in our position have a much wider array of resources. But beyond
  5. I'm sorry to hear that you don't like your remix. The one thing I was going to be insistent on is that I would prefer not to mess with the orchestration / arrangement of the piece. Arrangement is the thing I was trying to lock in, but the instrumentation may end up varying. But anyways... My original plan was to take all the files I can get a hold of and the current version of the script and tie the two together. For now, I may end up creating a piano reduction of all the files and then reorchestrating it against the script. That, of course, means that I'll be doing a "rough" script recordin
  6. Ouberion's Judgment 1. Initial Thoughts There's something to say for those who try the challenge of combining elements of different songs. Chrono Trigger has always been a personal favorite for me, and the sheer difficulty of intertwining these four songs should be enough to squash any "really muddy" or "too involved" thoughts. Some things just have to be worked on, and much can be done in the week before a deadline. As of right now, it looks like this is just a footnote on the Special Edition that will one day be. What a great footnote, though! The trouble with arranging and remixing is th
  7. Perfect...ask my wife...it either is perfect or not at all. At least when it comes to music. How perfect do things have to be? The first thing to do is keep interest going, right? I'll put together the final track listed, and post a link here for everyone who wants to listen. Sort of a teaser for what may hopefully come to pass. I'm much better at Orchestra than the other genres listed, but thankfully it is one of them. Who knows, maybe the "teaser" will generate some new interest?
  8. How much actually goes into running a project like this? I'm interested in seeing as many of these projects come to fruition as possible. I just got here a little late, as many of us did. Always great to see "I'd like to do this" followed by "This Thread is Dead.", but some things can't be helped. I know I'm a bit new to the forums, and the OCRemix community in general, but I've got a few thoughts I'll compile and either edit this post to add them, or make a new post (if someone posts before I get to again later today).
  9. The only problem I would have with transcribing it by ear is that I might end up standardizing the instrumentation across the board prior to transcribing. Transcribing would probably be an undertaking as well, but I'm up for the challenge. I just don't want to end up with an instrumentation that requires changes to the score. I'd like to poll to see what files are still available, and then work from there. Piano roll isn't that hard to read, but then again I started with that, so I know a few tricks I can use. Wouldn't it be great if everything was in MIDI format...just to make it a generic
  10. This may seem weird for this project, but what is the possibility of music scores for this? Something along the lines of piecing together a full score for the entire "movie". I'd love to see something like that, and I'd be willing to piece all the, well, pieces/tracks together into a score. Perhaps that would help later on down the line. But then you have to ask yourselves, do you leave the instrumentation for each track as is or expand to a full film orchestra setting? Hmm. Still, I would love to be able to review the scores for each track. I'm just weird like that.
  11. Only a few days left, then it's voting time. By Abadoss' statement of how many entries there were, hopefully there will be more entries and hopefully lots more in the way of voting. The more people vote, the more I hear what I need to work on and what people thought.
  12. Yay, I've officially entered. Now to see what happens. Few questions about the process, though: Are there many entries so far? Does anybody hear them before hand, or does every entry automatically get put in for the vote? And finally, do we get all the feedback? Or is it just posted in the forum for all to see?
  13. Just want to put a quick few notes in here: 1.) If you find someone posting a Finale (.mus) file you can't seem to open, you can just go to their website and download Notepad. Notepad is a free program no matter what, and it'll open any files from that version backwards. Notepad 2008 can open Finale 2008 and back. Makes it simple. If I remember correctly, that was the intent so you can view everybody's music (to entice you into buying the other programs) no matter what. 2.) If you have a file that's not manually sequenced, it's really hard to do, but you can get it about 85% of the way to a
  14. THE BIG NOTE: I had problems trying to format this...it looked good in Notepad, but everytime I copied it over, it crunched everything together, even if I typed multiple spaces. So, in order to keep the spacing right, I put the underscores (__) in to help. I'm working on the remainder of the piece, let me know what you guys think. I'm working on making a score of the whole thing (or at least a piano reduction). Perhaps, some TAB? Song: Thieves of Fate Note 1: This chording starts from when it picks up tempo, not at the beginning. But you knew that, already, didn't you? Note 2: I'm not used
