  1. This mix is wonderful, as is the rest of the album. Should definitely be checked out!
  2. We're finally full! I'll be setting up a WIP date soon (February?) and after that I hope to put together a bit of a preview. What I've got so far sounds fantastic! I'm looking forward to wrapping this up . -Kuolema
  3. Alright, one track left. ...Anyone want it? PM me please!
  4. He'll just use whatever he has, judges quotes or his own comments or whatever. There's always something to write about. There have been several mixes posted where the only comments from the mixer were basically "hope you like it" .
  5. Very excited! The artwork on the website is beautiful, who did it?
  6. Just got back from the Toronto show. It was awesome. That is all.
  7. If I have the SFZ version of the original I'm still eligible for the discount price right?
  8. Definitely getting this...eventually. Great video introduction by the way. Looks awesome!
  9. Can only think of Epica. Also, is it just me or are those graphics pretty shitty compared to most new releases? I don't own any modern consoles so I'm probably not the best person to judge, but compared to what I've seen...
  10. I've been thinking for a while about a compo based on Super Smash Bros. except not limited to Nintendo characters. Each week a stage theme would be chosen and everyone would be given an opponent to try to deal damage to. They would have to mix their song, their opponents song and that week's stage theme together into one mix. Voting would determine how much damage each character is awarded and those with the highest cumulative damage would eventually get kicked out. Could also potentially add items and powerups to add even more chaos . I've been hesitant to start this because of the large number of competitions already in place though.
  11. So good! I'm no judge, but I see no reason why this update shouldn't pass if the only complaints were about production.
  12. This thread had a lot of suggestions:
  13. Wow. Hard to believe how well this was pulled off! 11 artists!! What!?
  14. First place? Wasn't expecting that! Thanks so much guys . And of course thanks to wildfire for all the support/advice!
  15. Mmm...pull them out of a hat or something? I know what you mean though...I'm having a really tough time deciding. If you aren't going to vote, maybe you can write some reviews instead? Since Rex asked... Cool Side of the Mountain: This is a pretty 'chill' mix . Love the drum beat/bass you've got at the beginning. I'm also not a huge fan of the lead synth, but the arranging is pretty cool. I like the original sections a lot. I definitely agree with Rex about the organ. I actually would have liked for it to have a bit more of a presence in the mix. I think this is the one that's grown on me the most. I've been liking it more and more each time I listen to it. A Passing Dream 2: Great stuff here, plus props for working on a shorter schedule than the rest of us! There's a lot of source to work with so it's cool that you were able to use so much of it. The chiptune/rock combination works really well in my opinion. I especially love how you did the intro; Those arpeggios really make me visualize a waterfall. At first I wasn't sure about the disharmonious guitars at 2:15, but I kind of started to like them on subsequent listens. I would have loved for the synths to start to detune at that part too to make it sound really cacophonous. After 2:54 I find the background stuff to become a bit grating, but I love all the soloing and stuff you've got overtop. Overall this is a rockin' piece with lots of energy. Remembering the Storm: The original riff at 0:12 is great. I've heard quite a few covers of this song, but none quite like this! I also like the changes you made to the melody at 1:10, though I would have liked to have heard a bit more of that. Love the bass at 1:37 and the melody changeup. Also love the secret and overworld references at the end. The...chiptune parts that keep fading in left and right at the beginning (I have no idea what you would call them) sound really cool, but I think they can be a bit loud and distracting. In general, the energy in this is really uplifting and fun. It totally sounds like it goes with the cute graphics that Wind Waker uses. Mostly I just wish it was longer! 2 Sizes, 4 Swords, 8 Bits: Ehh, it's okay I guess. I don't really like the beginning anymore...
  16. I doubt it. I imagine a lot of people (myself included) just like to wait until closer to the deadline to make a final decision. I'll definitely get my votes in before the deadline though .
  17. Nah, I totally get what you're saying, it sounds good to me too, I'm just not sure why that destroys your credibility. It's not like you were making a professional statement or anything...
  18. There are alternatives of course Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving, even if ours was last month...Why is that?
  19. Ah, no actually I'm not, I just chose my name back when I was really into Nightwish. It's a very pretty word :).
