  1. Cheers! Glad you enjoyed. I'm still working on getting used to how to record certain things with my mic, so I'll definitely work on that in future. I was considering on making it longer but I was pushed for recording time, hence the semi-abrupt ending. Provided I can think of more additions I may well expand on it!
  2. Thanks for the feedback! The quality of my production is something I've been trying to work on for a while, but I'm not quite sure how to go about it or where to start. Any advice would be appreciated. I'm not sure if it's the way I record things or if it's in the mixing process. Yeah, it is haha. It didn't come out as clear (or as bassy) on the recording as I'd have liked unfortunately – I did actually double track that, although it's kinda hard to tell. Since it's the first time I've had a proper mic to work with I'm still getting the hang on what way to angle/point it when I do things.
  3. Wanted to test out my new NT2-A for music, so I settled on one of the neatest and ostensibly most remixed source tune in game history. Shades of bossanova. Enjoy! https://soundcloud.com/fish-and-swallow/corridor-of-time
  4. so this one's actually been finished for a while but I figured I'd like to get some feedback on it. this is an arrangement of about six different Ace Attorney tracks from the first Phoenix Wright game to Apollo Justice (eight tracks if you count redone old themes for Dual Destinies). arrangement is piano, acapella/vocalising, guitar, light percussion Turnabout 'Til We Meet Again I'm looking for feedback re arrangement mostly, I know the quality leaves a bit to be desired (hahaha…) and I'm planning to rerecord the whole thing later on with a decent microphone. influence behind style is "I want to record Beirut covers but I don't have brass instruments so I'm just gonna use my voice for almost everything for the next three years". tracks are Cross Examination ~ Moderate 2001 (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney) Phoenix Wright ~ Objection! 2001 (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney) Phoenix Wright ~ Objection! 2002 (Justice For All) Phoenix Wright ~ Objection! 2004 (Trials and Tribulations) Courtroom Lobby ~ New Prelude (Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney) Apollo Justice ~ A New Trial Is In Session! (Apollo Justice: Ace Attorney) Phoenix Wright ~ Objection! 2013 (Dual Destinies) Apollo Justice ~ I'm Fine! (Dual Destinies) I did a full acapella arrangement of the Ace Attorney End theme a while back as well.
  5. Really love this. It's been a while since I listened to any purely orchestral remixes and this one was spec-ta-cu-lar C: It had a really soaring, dynamic, adventurous feel to it and I enjoyed it immensely. Great stuff!
  6. Genius stuff here, I love it. Brilliant to hear some ilp0 again It's simple and uncluttered but still manages to be quite bold and powerful and leaves quite an impression, at least on me. Forever enjoying the Western/Spaghetti elements. I'm sticking this one on my iPod rn ;]
  7. :D Thank you very much! C:

    Ohh awesomesauce. I'm lookin' forward to it!! :)

  8. I really enjoyed listening to this, it was super-cool I'm not very good at critique much when it comes to rock, so I can't really say anything useful on the whole >____> But I will say I flipped out a little bit when the Aerith quote came in at... 3:20-ish? Mostly because kind of sudden and 'harsh'. You could probably make it sound a bit softer though, volume wise and such. Maybe a bit more echo and some sort of filter on it (bass reduction?)? A very nice touch though! (I can critique more on a tiny little bit of voice acting than on the actual music. Something is wrong here. ...Sorry >___>)
  9. Ahaha xD I can 'lend' them to you anytime you want ;)

  10. Oh man oh man. I love your stuff. This is so awesome Great job!
  11. THIS IS SO RAD. I love it! 8D ^ This comment is brilliant and I agree with it 100%. In a good way of course.
  12. I return with another acappella/acoustic guitar arrangement... again just for fun >w> Term three just ended (last holiday before NCEA3 final exams... gah) so I decided it'd be fun to do one of these again. Recently I've developed a fondness for Auron's theme so I decided to cover it similar-ish to my Costa de Sol cover, although I didn't do the second half of the piece. I'm quite proud of how this turned out actually, despite the slighty 'messiness' to the second half. I don't like looping a track when I'm playing live so I ended up playing the same notes over and over again, but that's okay. I think it sounds more natural that way (because... it is natural). I accidentally overplayed two bars at the end - when I realised this I was in the middle of recording so I had to improv. it, haha. That became the ending. Original source: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4iwYgd9N3Y And here's my arrangement -> http://www.box.net/shared/m2alr82mau Hope you enjoy - and again, critique or comments are appreciated
  13. Ahaha, I realised later on that the snapping and tapping were going on at the same time in the latter half of the piece to my dismay... The tapping was actually recorded separately to the guitar playing (because I'm a bit unco when it comes to tapping+guitar playing sometimes, heh). The BPM was slowed down to accommodate my awkward slow chord changing times but since I've had some practice I could probably play it a bit faster now Thanks for the comment!
  14. Ahahah I guess it was kind of a dumb question xD; Thanks!
  15. Hahah >w< Nah, that's me doing the vocals I don't have the coolness that is Vocaloid~ Out of curiosity, why do you ask?
  16. Daaamn this was epic awesome I agree with the SSBB comment, heh. I thought I didn't know the tune until I found myself singing along in my head the Kumikyoku Nico Nico Douga lyrics. "Misugoshite takeshiki wa okkusen man! Okkusen man!" Great work!
  17. Woah, thanks for all your feedback, guys I'm thinking I may come back to this soon with some more material - I enjoy improvising while I sing (adding grace notes, throwing in some scales etc.) and while I didn't for this (I held back on it just so I could get a feel for the original) I might do it in the next revision. I will be sure to take some of your advice into account for the next revision There was originally some piano in this as well but I felt it detracted too much from the rest of it - the 'ban-ban ban-ban-ban' you hear in the first half and the 'bam ba-de-dam ba dam-dam-dam dam' you hear in the second half (in the left and right ears) are what became of it. I turned them into vocal parts instead and it seemed to have worked well... I think. Well, the arrangement seems too sparse without them but if I added any more on top of that, depending on what I do it could end up being too much. >w>
  18. Yosh, everybody. I bring you today one of the most on-the-spot impulse remixes I've ever done. Well, not quite on-the-spot - I thought of it night before the day before yesterday but didn't start arranging until yesterday. Just finished about half an hour ago >.> It's all live (gasp!) and I spent quite a while fretting over some of the chord changes since my hands are kind of small (too big for a 3/4 guitar, a weedle bit too small for a full one. Gah.) :/ It's no 'Suco de Melancia' but here we go -> http://www.box.net/shared/5s6yinsbe1 Original source: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyPH6Qlp-u0 This is just a play-around, 'cause I don't think too much can be expanded on this, but please leave some feedback or comments. It might be helpful towards... something in the future, I dunno. ...Oh god. Please excuse the horrid screeching noises on my bass line. D:
  19. This is really really good so far I'm really enjoying it. It's not just smooth jazz, it's really smooth - the timbre is really nice. What are the lyrics by the way? I'm definitely keeping a tab on this
  20. See what great things you can accomplish even when you think it's over, Kate? Great to finally see this up on OCR! ~Li-Bai
  21. I suggest Square Enix Music and/or Square Sound. I get a vast majority of my sheet music there, original book and arrangements. It's got buttloads of stuff <3
  22. Hey, you posted this on the VAA! I already posted my comments on that there but I'll say it again - your singing was really nice and it's lovely to hear a male cover of this piece
  23. "Who's the super-effective prosecutor that's a litigation machine to all the chicks?" (But Phoenix is a Defense Attorney... XD;) Anyway, this is a kickass remix. It's going on my iPod fo' sho' 8D
  24. -nodnod- Mmhmm, thanks very much for your feedback! Alright, next chance I get I'll do some more expanding and arranging.
  25. This is one of my favourite tracks in all the Gyakuten Saiban games. I dunno why, maybe it just reminds me of the ad with the guy and the Wheel of (mis)Fortune at the intersections >w> Or vice versa. I picked it out by ear and threw something together on GarageBand... I left it but now I've listened to it again myself today and thought 'huh, maybe there's some potential?' Here's the [link!] Have a listen and tell me what you think? Here's the source:
