    PRC378 - Music Is More Than Words (Breath of Fire II)

    Some of the timing is off on the notes too, but for what I want to do that shouldn't be too big of an issue. Since we have a longer mixing period this time around, should be ample time to get something nice out.

    Holy crap. Absolutely love this track. I’ll definitely try and get something out this round.

    PRC377- The Silent of No Songs (Silent Hill 2)

    My participation is often guided by whether my available time and interest in the source intersect. Lately that hasn’t happened. I’ll jump into the next round if the source is something I can work with (I need more arrangement practice).
  4. Anytime I see Secret of Evermore, you have my attention. Great source selection! On the production side of things, there isn't a lot of mud, which is really nice. Utilizing some more reverb and panning will help this mix tremendously. The synth arp that comes in at 1:03, in particular, would be nice if you either panned some of the notes or added slight delay effect with a pan. Arrangement wise... You have interesting ideas, but everything plods along too much and suffers from a lack of dynamic range. 1:50-3:18 doesn't fit with the rest of the arrangement for a track being billed as synthwave. Try introducing different synth instrumentation into that section, or consider scrapping everything altogether and reworking it into something new. That's your creative call. Check out Jorito's recently posted track or sift through some of Sir_NutS' catalog for good synthwave inspiration from within this community. You have a decent base thus far. Look forward to your future update!

    2. ready for review Zelda (NES) - Dungeon

    Made some minor updates to the track. Brought out a couple of parts that I wanted emphasized at certain points in the arrangement. Further feedback always welcomed.
  6. Just a quick word: if I cannot produce a decent WIP for the Boss B track here in the next couple of weeks, I'm letting go of the claim in case anyone else wants to give it a go.

    2. ready for review BOY (EDM Remix) (God of War)

    I'm not familiar with the meme, but that doesn't stop me from appreciating this mix. This is a nice deviation from your usual style! For a style like this, personally, for an EDM track, your drum kick should be stronger. Sounds like some of the low end is being rolled off, or it's not being sidechained enough. Similarly, the drops around 0:43-0:46 & 2:27-2:30 are kind of weak, but this issue is probably tied with the kick not having enough oomph. Still, love the creativity you've shown with this mix. Good job.

    Appreciate it man! Going ahead and bumping this up for review. No better way to receive feedback then by actually asking.
  9. Source: Worked on a remix of the dungeon theme for a competition. Happy with how it came out, but I'm a little worried I may be stretching the melody of the original bassline a little too liberally. If it's not too far off the mark, I'll try and see if I can clean this up into something submittable for the panel.

    MnP 93: Zelda (Nes) - Labyrinth/Dungeon

    Congrats everyone on some good mixes, and especially Chalis for winning this round! My apologies for not getting in my vote/feedback within the time period. I’ve been away on vacation since Thursday with a group of friends. Thanks to everyone who voted for my track, despite it being the least conservative of the group. Lol Had a lot of fun arranging the track, so I’ll probably kick it over to the WIP boards.

    Entry has been uploaded. Not very MnP-ey, but I had a lot of fun with it and couldn’t resist where it was going.

    FL Studio 20 now released

    I'd go ahead and take the plunge. My experience with 20 has been mostly bug-free, and I feel the workflow enhancements are worth the upgrade.

    MnP 93: Zelda (Nes) - Labyrinth/Dungeon

    Arrangement is pretty much done. Not as MnP-ey as it should be, but I'm still pleased with what has resulted. Working on the mixing right now, so I'll have my entry up by Tuesday.

    FL Studio 20 now released

    This Is the 20th anniversary of FL Studio. The number skip was intentional (albeit jarring).

    FL Studio 20 now released

    Image Line finally released FL Studio 20 today after a couple of weeks of kicking around release candidates. As an FL Studio and Mac user, I cannot begin to describe how happy I am for native Mac support!
