  1. Also, I again forgot another hallmark of my favorite music, Rusty Ruin Zone Acts 1 and 2 from the Sega Saturn port of Sonic 3D Blast. while the rest of the soundtrack is kind of hit or miss in some cases, Rusty Ruin and the Volcano Acts are beautiful.
  2. ...wow. This is so much to look into. I get off work, and all these options! I'm gonna research a few of these tonight and definitely tomorrow while I'm writing a philosophy paper (hah, of all things). Thanks! Also! Dunno how I forgot, but... Sonic CD's soundtrack, the NA version. I love the whole album, I know its a little cheesy today, but I really do love the sound of the music, especially the guitar work.
  3. So, I've been really trying to expand the music that I listen to lately, but I've hit a brick wall in terms of exploring. I've tried using pandora and ambient.us and I end up in one of two problems. I'd really like to dig into ambient, atmospheric celtic and/or new age music, and it's hard to find anything, really. Pandora thinks that ambient is supposed to be really-slow-trance, or it's new age selection is far too unfocused. Being a musical community, I'd hope OCRemix could help me out in this matter. Here's a list of soundtracks that really hit home in the styles of music I'm looking into getting into and exploring. Chrono Cross -Scars of Time -Another World -Arnie Village -Radical Dreamers I enjoy these as they're emotional and relaxing at the same time, I can feel the movements through the song and I just find it a pleasure to listen to the melodies. Sonic 3D Blast (Sega Saturn) -Rusty Ruin Zone (Act 1 & 2) Beautiful, haunting, immersive, deep, surrounding, emotional... So many words to describe it, and yet I can find nothing remotely similar =/ Riven -Catherine's Theme -Whark Room -Moiety Theme The hardest to find anything remotely similar, the whole soundtrack has such an "deep" and "surrounding" feel to it. A few songs by Tangerine Dreams sound somewhat similar, but there's not much other than that. ECCO The Dolphin -any songs really -SEGA CD versions -Defender of the Future A few random songs -Prelude (Final Fantasy X) -Mystic Ruin Theme (Sonic Adventure) -EgM's Sol Sanctum Guitar Any of Sonic CD's NA OST. The guitar work is a big part of it, but the entire work's sound is very entrancing. I know some of these aren't really in the same style, but I'd really like to get into something similar. If anyone can help me find similar music to these, I'd greatly appreciate it!
  4. I honestly have no idea what system it is all I know is it was about 60 bucks for a 5.1 system, it did pretty well for the price for 4 years till i started appreciating the quality of music and sound.
  5. So, my current logitech surround sound system is starting to reach it's limit after about 4 years of everyday use. So... I'm looking to get a new set of surround sound speakers for my current college dorm room. I'm going to be moving into an apartment next year, so I'll really be hoping to have a nice set-up at that time. I'm not really a bass person, but to be able to hear the deep, lower noises without the subwoofer rattling would be nice, and I seem to love higher notes and frequencies in my music. I tend to listen to music in .mp3s at 328kbps and FLAC, so quality is rather important to me and I despise hearing my speakers rattle and crack, killing the mood of my music. So, OCRemixers, I ask you, what would you get? My high limit for finances is about 200 but I'm willing to go a bit above that for something spectacular sounding. Any opinions on a good set up would be great. If it means anything, I use my laptop as my primary music playing device, and I have all three current consoles, so a hub for the system with multiple connections would be nice. I've looked around myself, and I really don't have a clue where to start. And I'd love for this to sound rich and full, to fill my room with great sound. Thanks for any help!
  6. I honestly have no idea how to convey the feelings and the way the music of RIVEN sounds, but it's probably my favorite collection of music on the planet. I'm not looking for music that sounds like the MYST franchise, as that's very different from the RIVEN OST. If anyone can help me out at all here, I would greatly appreciate it.
  7. Just trying to make a playlist with some songs that are... hell, I don't even know, to be honest. Some hope of invoking passionate feelings is the main goal here. Let me just list what I've got going on so far here. Maybe someone with more musical knowledge will be able to describe what I'm trying to arrange here. Current Playlist: "Mainstream" Songs: Truly Madly Deeply - Savage Garden All Hail The Heartbreaker - The Spill Canvas All Over You - The Spill Canvas Don't Say You Love Me - M2M It Was You - Ashley Ballard & So-Plush Makin' My Way - Billie Dreams - Alysha The Power of One - Donna Summer The Extra Mile - Laura Pausini One - Denisse Lara To Know the Unkown - Innosense Biggest Part of My Life - PJ Lequerica Over My Head (Cable Car) - The Fray How To Save a Life - The Fray Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol Broken - Seether & Amy Lee Boys of Summer - The Ataris Every Breath You Take - The Police I Don't Want To Miss a Thing - Aerosmith Stop & Stare - One Republic Wonderwall - Oasis With Arms Wide Open - Creed Where'd You Go - Fort Minor Right Here - Staind I'm Still Here - John Rzeznik Time After Time - Quietdrive I'll Be Missing You - Puff Daddy & Faith Evans With Me - Sum 41 Best of Me - Sum 41 Your Man - Smash Mouth In The Air Tonight - Phil Collins Kremlin Dusk - Utada Hikaru Crush - Mandy Moore Believe Me Natalie - The Killers Jenny Was a Friend of Mine - The Killers Mr Brightside - The Killers Smile Like You Mean It - The Killers Ask The Lonely - Journey Don't Stop Believin' - Journey (This is a necessity, just because it's amazing) Faithfully - Journey Lights - Journey Send Her My Love - Journey Seperate Ways - Journey Wheel In The Sky - Journey Won't Go Home Without You - Maroon 5 Goodnight Goodnight - Maroon 5 Must Get Out - Maroon 5 She Will Be Loved - Maroon 5 This Love - Maroon 5 Go Your Own Way - Fleetwood Mac Dreams - Fleetwood Mac Little Lies - Fleetwood Mac Everywhere - Fleetwood Mac Rhiannon (Single Version) - Fleetwood Mac Sara - Fleetwood Mac Gypsy - Fleetwood Mac Landslide - Fleetwood Mac Hanging By A Moment - Lifehouse Take Me Away - Lifehouse You And Me - Lifehouse Blind - Lifehouse First Time - Lifehouse Whatever It Takes - Lifehouse Broken - Lifehouse OCRemixes: Lover's Reef - Geoffrey Taucer, Pixietricks, Shonensamurai & Zircon Time's Scar - FFmusic Dj OCRemix Project Songs: Requeim for Another World - Thieves of Fate - Avaris & Dragoon Avenger Le Tresor Interdit - Thieves of Fate - OA, The Prophet of Mephisto, Geogffrey Taucer & Dragoon Avenger Loneliness - Thieves of Fate - OA Scar Sealing Girl - Thieves of Fate - Geoffrey Taucer & Ross Kmet Game Songs: Ronfaure - Final Fantasy XI - Nobuo Uematsu Heaven's Tower - Final Fantasy XI - Naoshi Mizuta 1000 Words (Final Fantasy X-2 Mix) - Final Fantasy X-2 - Kumi Koda Eyes On Me - Final Fantasy VIII - Faye Wong This is all extremely subjective to change, and I'm looking for some input as to what should be added or removed to this. I garuntee I'll be changing a lot of this very soon. The main goal for the night was to get all the "mainstream" recognizable songs out of the way and thrown on the list, I'm going to listen to the entire thing soon and see what works and what doesn't.
