  1. Current tentative title "Courage in Life, Honor in Death". Source: Remix v1: http://tindeck.com/listen/whdc This is my first draft, and the writing is far from finished. It's the first time I make a track with this kind of sound, so I'd appreciate a little bit of starting feedback, just in case. P.S. : That last part with the harp and piano is still unfinished. LATEST VERSION: http://tindeck.com/listen/wwwi
  2. This is great! The ideas are very interesting! I especially like what you do with the percussion. It's got a great realistic feel to it, and I love that! It might be just me, but I feel like something's missing in the first 19 seconds. I can't say what it is exactly, but anyway. Maybe it's just my personal tastes messing around. Oh and I'd love to hear those pads a little bit louder! I think they deserve more respect in the mix, but again, that's just me. That's a great start! I can't wait to hear what's coming!
  3. Thanks a lot for the feedback Rozovian All right, I did the best I could to make this sound as clear as possible without compromising the atmosphere I'm willing to build with this track. As for the simple synths, it's my basic idea for this remix: almost exclusively chiptune-inspired synths (which is partially why I chose this title for the remix). As this is my first serious work, I thought it might have been a good idea to get as much technical advice as possible. I may be wrong though! but I'm very satisfied. So here's the track (for Mod Review): Nostalgic Waters And here's the source again: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2IXKsYHGJ0 Thanks a lot, once more!
  4. I'm back! Thanks a lot once more for the awesome feedback! It helped a lot, as usual! Lots of changes in this almost-final version, and I'm finally done with the writing. So here it is: Nostalgic Waters Any feedback is still appreciated. I hope you like it!
  5. Slight update from last version : http://tindeck.com/listen/gvui Please leave feedback!
  6. Here's the update I promised: http://tindeck.com/listen/gvsj This isn't taking the direction I intended from the beginning, but I think it's even turning out better than what I was expecting. Please give any feedback that comes to mind! Thanks a lot, once more! P.S. : I'm still not done writing!
  7. Thanks again for the wonderful feedback! I've been extremely busy during the last weeks, so I had to put this aside for a little while. I should be able to come up with an update somewhere next week. Sorry for the slow response, and thanks for the support!
  8. I'm no expert, but I feel like what's missing here is some kind of driving melody. Because the main theme of the original is very repetitive, it doesn't stand out much, so I think adding some kind of synth solo would make a big difference. Just my opinion. I really like what you did, though!
  9. Thanks again for the awesome feedback! Pretty major update here. I fixed a big part of the mixing issues I had in the previous version, and I give a lot of credit to your advice, TheReverend. I also added lots of content details throughout the song (mostly piano). As for the main theme, I couldn't decide which I liked the most between piano or synth, so I used a bit of both Next step is to finish the composition. I'll be back with another update soon I hope you enjoy it! I'm loving your feedback very much! Here's the update : http://www.tindeck.com/listen/odne
  10. Thanks again for all the great feedback! I'm pleased to know that you like this! I tweaked a bit that piano sample of mine, as you suggested. I think it's already much better. I also added more reverb to the shakers and hi-hats, and it's much better. Thanks a lot! As for the rest of your suggestions, I am not disregarding them at all.. but I still can't decide what I like more. I'll keep thinking about it. Here's the update : http://www.tindeck.com/listen/rrjm I think this is getting somewhere! Thanks a lot, again!
  11. Thanks a lot for all the feedback and ideas! I thought about your idea of replacing the synthesized sounds with piano, or more organic stuff. I had the idea of adding those sounds later in the remix, instead of replacing my old sounds, just to make some kind of progression from a "16-bit like" kind of feel towards a more instrumental feel. I plan on adding strings, horns, and other orchestral instruments. What do you guys think? Here's an update : http://www.tindeck.com/listen/bicj
  12. Thanks a lot for the feedback! I'll keep it all in mind!
  13. Hey! I've been experimenting with remixing stuff for quite a while, but I'd never get anything quite satisfying to me. I think I might finally be coming up with something good. I'd like to know what you guys think about it. It's still far from finished, though. Source: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2IXKsYHGJ0 Remix: http://www.tindeck.com/listen/hvmd Thanks! EDIT : FINAL VERSION : Nostalgic Waters v3
  14. Thank you very much for all your advice! I'll keep everything you told me in mind when I start over the making of my remix. This time, I'll try again differently. I'll try being more original, because with your feedback, it is now evident to me that I have simply copied the song's melody and bass. Thank you very much! I'll eventually post an update of my work. See you then!
  15. Hey there! I've been hanging around this site for a long time (not long after the site's foundation), and I decided to try making my own stuff too. I'm not too confident though, as I'm heading a bit blindly into the world of remixing... So this is the beginning of my first attempt. This is extremely raw material (no effects yet, no reverb, song note done... you know, RAW material) and I'd like to have some feedback to redirect me if what I'm doing is totally wrong. I thank you all in advance Here's the original song composed by Hiroyuki Iwatsuki: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9G1m8RCsg4&feature=PlayList&p=0D9F9C8FCD663B98&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=3 Here's my little starting stuff: http://www.tindeck.com/listen/mlyx Thanks again!
