  1. So, I've submitted this to the judges a couple times and it's been turned down both times, so I decided to just completely rework it from the ground up, keeping only the same arrangement structure. So here's my newest and, hopefully, finished version. I'm posting it here to get ideas on whether there's anything you guys think I can do to push it up to being an OCR-Worthy track, if you don't already think it is...

  2. Thanks for all your feedback! WHen I get some free time this weekend I'll work on fixing the compression and the solo. Updated version should be up by Monday.
  3. Ahh, that's a good point. Here's the original on Youtube, I'll put it in the first post as well. The vocals at the end are from the end of the DK Rap from Donkey Kong 64. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9PHNikoA5M And thanks for your feedback! I'll definitely work on that stuff. That's actually pretty much what I was planning on doing with the solo, just taking it lick by lick and tightening it up.
  4. So, here's my newest project. It's a rock remix of DK Island Swing from Donkey Kong Country. I know the guitar solo is shit right now, I'm going to work more on that later, as well as figure out an actual ending. I'm just wondering what your opinions are on the mixing, arrangement, basically everything else.

  5. So, my computer decided to crash today and I lost everything I had gotten done. So I don't know how long it'll be before I get this rebuilt, if I even do that. I probably will, but it'll take a while. So yeah.
  6. I actually added another melody synth when I was working on it yesterday. XD Yeah, the levels and EQ are kind of a challenge right now, I'm working on getting it right. And I recently added some good compressors to the Kick and and Snare, like, yesterday. So those already sound better. That'll be included in the next draft as well. That's a good idea. I actually just got a MIDI cable, so I'll play around with my keyboard and see what I can come up with. I did notice it was a bit repetitive there.
  7. Thank you guys so much for all your feedback. You've been incredibly helpful. Sorry this has taken me a while to update, but exams are coming up... You know how it is. I actually did this while procrastinating doing a Physics project due today... But anyways, here is my fourth draft! I decided to go in a different direction at the end. I think this sounds better. Let me know your opinions! I'm not really sure where to take it from here, so it may be a while before I update again... http://soundcloud.com/mtm2/the-adventure-of-error-fourth
  8. I might have some (Ok, quite a bit of) interest in Ganon's Castle... I heard some ideas as soon as I listened to the source track. That's promising. I'll get back to you once I have some kind of coherent arrangement, but that may take a little while. Exams coming up and all... I just wanted to throw my voice in. Also, my Tindeck stuff is older, I've gotten better I promise. XD
  9. haha yeah, I noticed the mixing right after I had already uploaded it, so I decided to fix it on the next draft. Which is here! http://soundcloud.com/mtm2/the-adventure-of-error-third I added another section, but I'm not sure how I feel about it. I'll probably end up tweaking it quite a bit more. I also brought back the drop-out with the voice clip and added some little effects to it. Let me know what you think. I tried to punch up the drums a bit, as well, and I cranked the Lead up a bit too. btw, I'm using FL Studio. Because it's what I know. XD I know a lot of professionals don't like it, but it's what I learned on and it's what I'm most comfortable with.
  10. Awesome, thanks so much! I've been working on some of that. Here's my second draft. I still haven't added another section or anything, but I changed around some of the sounds I was working with. http://soundcloud.com/mtm2/the-adventure-of-error-second
  11. Thanks for all of your feedback, guys! I'm planning on changing the pauses, maybe taking them all out. I'm also probably going to rework the beginning, make it a little more interesting. The "I AM ERROR" thing is actually from the game, there's a character whose only dialogue is "I AM ERROR." http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/i-am-error But as for the song itself, I've started not liking the pauses too much either. I may have it pause just once, and I'll put some kind of little effect in to make it more interesting. Not having a fade-in sounds like a good idea, actually, I have heard a bunch of mixes where it just fades in. I may start out with some drums or something, I'll play around with it. And where it cuts off, I'm definitely going to take it down, but not back to near the beginning. I'm going to add a C section (lol) and build it up to a more epic finale. I just haven't had time to play around with it yet. The build-up is starting to feel weird to me too, the more I hear it. I'll tweak it a bit. Expect a version 2 later this week! I'll check out those songs once I've got my good headphones. Thanks! Hahaha I'm glad! I definitely spent most of my time on getting the bass sounding just right. Again, I'm probably gonna take out at least some of the pauses.
  12. So, this is my short little beginning of a remix of Zelda 2's Temple Theme. I was listening to my iPod while walking to class, and LaRux's Temple Trippin' remix came on. I started hearing wubs behind it for whatever reason so I decided to throw my ideas at my computer to see what stuck. This is the result thus far. Any feedback? What can I improve? I do realize there's a really obnoxious click right at the beginning, and I'm sorry. That will be smoothed out in future renderings.

  13. Club mix. Ha. Like a golf club. Lolololololololol But for real though, great mix. Love the bass.
  14. The way I see it, a good remix is a good remix, regardless of how changed it is from the source. Disqualifying this remix solely on the grounds of arrangement just seems idiotic to me, because this is a fantastic remix.
