  1. Mmm, this is a good thread. Needs more recommendations though! Here's one of my favorite obscure groups: http://evokethylords.bandcamp.com/ If you like doom or gothic metal at all they're really worth checking out! Also a lot of their lyrics on "Escape to the Dreamlands" are H.P. Lovecraft inspired, which is pretty cool .
  2. I thought this thing was broken because I had been shoving mixes into it all morning and only got NOs, but I can happily say that I have finally been accepted! Not only that, but it accepted 2 in a row! It also correctly identified the lead instrument as spleen which was a pleasant surprise.
  3. Just wanted to mention that I really love this piece. It's been stuck in my head for the last few days so I've been playing it on repeat!
  4. We haven't decided on deadlines yet, but you should have plenty of time. We will be sure to keep everyone in the loop. Also the first post has been updated!
  5. I honestly didn't realize how much interest there was in this project, and it really makes me want to see it through to the end. Since no one else has spoken up, I would be willing to step back into the picture as director, but I do feel like I need someone to join me as a co-director, to help me make decisions and keep everything on track. Is there anyone (perhaps someone who has experience with these sorts of projects) who would be willing to work with me to get this finished?
  6. Hey everyone, I told myself that I wouldn't do this ever since I started this project, so this is very difficult to do. However, as much as I regret to say it, I'm going to have to step down from directing this project. When I started this thing I knew it wasn't going to be easy, but what I wasn't prepared for was the constant hanging-over-my-head that would go with it; It was always this thing in the back of my mind and it really did stress me out. For the last couple of months I've put the project completely out of my head, telling myself that I would get back to it in a week. Or two. Or thr
  7. Oh man...I'm really sorry for ignoring everyone this past month. I feel really bad, but I just haven't had the energy to deal with project stuff lately. I will be in touch as soon as I feel up to it; hopefully sooner than later. That being said, thanks to everyone who's submitted WIPs or contacted me. It's good to hear from all of you. I guess I should put in the obligatory mention that there are a couple of open tracks. As always, PM me if you're interested in claiming one of them.
  8. http://ocremix.org/forums/showthread.php?t=35647 It's happening!
  9. Oh man, Tuberz absolutely killed it this week with the arrangement. Your butts had better get pumped!
  10. Computer Musics CM plugins: The cost of a magazine for ~30 synths and effects, some of which are very very good. I've never used commercial synths so I don't really know how they compare, but they're much better than almost all of the freeware synths I've used. Would also recommend the Sonigen Modular beta. It's free and AMAZING. It's going to be released as pay ware soon I think. The only warning I should give is that on my machine it tends to crash Reaper a lot without warning, which is a pain in the ass, but not a big enough detergent for me to stop using it (it is still in beta after all).
  11. Another non-violent gamer here (or not, since I don't really play games anymore, but anyways...). I never understood why my friends were all into Halo and Call of Duty a few years back. I would play with them when we were together, but I never found the experience to be enjoyable. I did pick up a few FPSs to try and get into them more, but eventually I realized that I just wasn't okay with pulling a trigger, whether for real or virtually.
  12. Who lives in a weenie hut under the sea? Bran-don-stra-der!
  13. Haha, that was kind of my reaction as well...rules are meant to be broken I guess?
  14. Yeah, the hiss is just a saturation plugin on the mandolin with the noise knob turned up a little bit. The master itself isn't saturated though. It's funny, I thought I was mixing the bass lower than I normally would have, but listening to it again, maybe it is a bit too strong. The bass is actually cut at 800hz but I did use a multiband compressor on the master to compress the bottom 200hz, so maybe that's what you're hearing? I'm not sure what you mean by resonant eq though. I also ran it through an amp sim - I imagine you already amped it, but I thought it sounded nice so I went with it a
  15. Have you thought about using pdfs instead of jpgs or whatever format the pictures are in? I think it would be a lot easier to read through as you could scroll instead of having to click through multiple pictures. It would also make resizing/reading the text a lot easier. Maybe you could keep the pictures so that they show up in the tumblr post, but also link to a pdf? Anyway, love what I've seen so far and I'm looking forward to reading more! I don't know how many requests you get, but I guess mine would be either or from Valkyrie Profile if you ever want to do either of those.
  16. I tend not to like humourous lyrics in general, so I found manly competition, discriminated dreamwalker and oh, my dog in particular kind of strange to listen to. Nothing inherently wrong with them, just not my cup of tea so to speak. As I said though, they're definitely starting to grow on me .
  17. How come there's no youtube link for this week's source? It seems kind of strange that it wouldn't be on there considering every other mega man song seems to be.
