    I've been playing music in some form or another since I was six years old, and have had a diverse background in music, including training on piano, percussion, and in voice. I only recently started writing my own music, and I love it!

  1. Thanks for the comment, man! It is still in the early stages, but I do intend to make the song rather long, so a long intro I think is fitting. And yes, it is a repetitive source tune, but I like how much room it leaves for interpretation. you really think it could have been that much shorter? And the source tune is hinted in the reversed guitar and the piano actually brings it in, so I'm sorry, but I don't understand that criticism. Could you please elaborate? Thanks so much for the feedback!
  2. I thought I'd try my hand at remixing the title theme from Kingdom Hearts, Dearly Beloved. I right now basically have a really long intro, but I like what it sounds like. Here's the link to my song: and here's a link to source tune: I am going to write more very soon, but I want to know what you guys think of the opening, so please comment! Thanks a bunch!
  3. To Chernabogue54, are you the same person who submitted this arrangement to Squaresound? There's a Rowdy Rumble piano arrangement on there which is exactly the same as your piano version, posted by an Adam Mclean. At least, it's the same as your old version. Just wondering.
  4. I really like this so far! It reminds me of a remix that Tepid worked on of Fisherman's Horizon. Keep working on it!
  5. Indeed, I see what you mean. I'll post another WIP when I get more done, but it takes a while, since I have to input all the notes with a mouse. Thanks a bunch for your feedback!
  6. Thanks for the comments! I'll deal with the delays, but I'd like to know, do you think they work in the intro? I like the echoing sound there, but it does make sense to get rid of it otherwise. Thanks again for listening!
  7. My main comment is that the drums don't seem to have much energy. The snare doesn't seem to fit with the theme, if you ask me. Play with velocities and all that. I like the actual song, though. It sounds really nice!
  8. So, I heard Blue Fields from Final Fantasy VIII again recently, and I had an idea for a sort of Jazz combo remix. I swung the rhythms and took some liberties, and the lead is a nice vibraphone sound I have. I've only done about the first 30 seconds so far, but I definitely intend to do more. Tell me what you guys think right now, okay? Enjoy! EDIT: Totally forgot to put a link to the source tune! My bad! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uiMZVXEKwr0 Thanks for listening!
  9. Yeah, I kinda dropped this until I can get a really good sampled guitar, or find someone to play it for me. THanks for the tips, though!
  10. Thanks so much for the feedback! This isn't part of any project, just something I wanted to do on my own. I was planning on maybe dropping this project unless I can better program the guitar parts or get a better synth or something, but I don't intend to stop working on it now. I am going to stick to Red/Blue/Yellow, and I intend to incorporate the evolution theme later in the song. Again, thanks for the feedback, I'm glad you liked it!
  11. Wow, this whole thing is really awesome right now. Just extend the length without making it repetitive and it'll easily be submission-ready in my opinion.
  12. Dude, it needs lots of work. The tempos don't line up, and it all feels very, very WIP right now. There are some interesting musical ideas there, but it is far too busy right now, plus the tempo problems at the beginning. Clean it up, and then repost it, please.
  13. I really like the mix right now, and it's definitely improving. The vocals sound really nice as is, and I think the drums are very nicely done. Maybe it's just be, but I'd still like the flute to some to the front a little more. See what you can do with that. It's almost there, but it still sounds to me like some kind of background instrument. Play with pan and volume or maybe EQ on that one. Just be careful not ot overdo it, because it's close, but just not quite there for me. It seems really very close to submission ready if you ask me, though. I think it's a great mix overall.
  14. Alright, I really like this remix so far. The vocals are really interesting, though they sound a little too airy, like not full enough. It gets better later in the song though, and it sounds good overall. Also, during the flute solo, bring the flute more to the front. It took me a second to realize that the flute was having a solo, and that might just be my headphones, but I still think you should look into it. I might also sugest you make the ending fadeout a little longer. It just feels too sudden to me. Overall, though, I think this is a great mix!
