  1. that's all very correct, thanks rexy! thanks for the kind words alcino! chrono suite also made the cut onto our (materia) debut album, released through overclocked records! you can check it out at www.materiavgm.com!
  2. man, i want to hop in here and say how much i appreciate the kind words coming from everyone in this thread. thanks for giving me your ears, your time, and your thoughts; they're humbling gifts to receive. and thanks to dave and all of the ocr staff for toiling over this site, to give video game music the platform it truly deserves, as well as the constructive criticism and undue praise you all have given to me over the years. much love everyone, and hope you all have a merry Christmas. - peter/melody
  3. haha, i'm glad you asked. i think this guy's a little too enamored with the idea of lowercase letters, but when he's not overreaching he gets the point across well. http://thoughtcatalog.com/ethan-ryan/2012/09/lowercase-is-cool/
  4. haha, it's good to hear from you matt! literally laughed out loud, guilty as charged. belated congrats on temporal duality as well man! i used to sit at my computer replaying the intro video over and over as a kid. very much appreciate the kind words, be well!
  5. digging the feel and vibe man! chunky rhythm guitars and thick palm mutes. definitely transforms my image of crono into a g with an indifferent rockstar attitude. i can see him sporting cliff burton's torn jean jacket as well (rest in peace). your treatment of the b-section at 2:46 is anthemic. would really like to hear this with you taking a few bars to rip a solo.
  6. it certainly is. appreciate the kind words my friend! edit: op updated with a rough master and a few small cleanups.
  7. good look mike! and definitely wouldn't mind turning up the bass at all, let me know timaeus! appreciate all the feedback folks! edit: op updated after eqing/playing with some levels.
  8. very much appreciate the kind words brother. can totally dig making the kick thump harder. does anyone else feel the same regarding the soft kick? i tend to overcompensate these days after getting blasted on many previous occasions for just the opposite, haha. i was confronted with being that guy in the last part of your comment in early 2008 and took my first sabbatical from guitar. i had an average knowledge of the guitar but it was really at the expense of, or continuing at my pace, going to be at the expense of, a more holistic understanding of music (the compositional/production, and
  9. appreciate it dollmaster! and good to hear from you wes, it's been a minute! the pleasure is all mine. the mix does seem to be noticeably lacking in low-mid. spent the past few hours recording the guitar part and i'll probably be spending the next week or so continuing to polish. please keep the feedback coming! op updated!
  10. source (you don't need this): what's up everyone, it's been a minute. wanted to drop in here with a rough wip before heading off to dinner. there's no melody yet.. i need to change these six-month old strings on my strat before recording anything. your honest thoughts are welcomed! - peter/melody edit: link: subbed! thanks to everyone for the feedback!
  11. not a problem at all man! the writing is great, and while i personally think you could take this arrangement to another level by taking another look at the drums, most of the areas that need touching up are, in my humble opinion, production-related. i can personally attest to the soundness of shaggy and rozovian's ears and would take a look at everything they're talking about; i'm certain that their crits would be more accurate and in-depth than mine if they had the time to write paragraph upon paragraph.
  12. first off, this is sick!! i don't know if you'll even read this, and i can't pretend to know your end goal for this (whether you intend to submit it to ocr or not), but i'm going to leave a long non-mod review anyways because of how much i liked your arrangement, haha. the bass/b3 writing during the turnaround at 1:03 is really slick and the whole chord progression sets up the solo section around 1:19 nicely. though the snare sample you're using isn't particularly strong, and is also more exposed since all you have essentially are the b3 comping chords and electric bass locking in w
  13. i am looking to sell: - my 50 watt marshall 1987x plexi mk. ii head, starting at $1450 - my 1960a marshall cab, starting at $350 the plexi is in perfect condition, and since i've only put around 10 hours on it during the four years i've had it, the tubes are in excellent shape. the cab is missing one of its four wheels so it's currently supported by a book from an obscure elective i took at virginia tech that has more value as an improvised wheel than as reading material. replacing the wheel proper with ernie ball casters is a simple, diy-able fix that will run you no more than $30, and the
