  1. So here's something that is a little different than my typical style. I still changed the time signature (as I often do): this time from 4/4 to 7/4 (hence, 74 Hz). However, what makes this different to my normal style is the fact that I went for a little more chill vibe and used different types of instruments. It is not very synth heavy. The primary "rhythm section" consists of a keyboard, set drum, and electric bass. Check it out!
  2. https://www.box.com/s/6vhk9v8q7bhtbr24ry2k Man it's been a while since I've posted here! Anyways, the above link is a "completed" version of the song, as in, all the bits and pieces to make it a cohesive song are there. Take a listen and tell me what you like and don't like! Thanks!
  3. I feel like the introduction does not fit well with the feeling you have going on right after the drop. The drums by themselves have a harsh articulation on their own. The wub that backs the track was very repetitive and ended up getting a bit annoying, as it never changed (no leveling or even effects were changed on the wub) so I would suggest a bit of variety. I feel like you could have added a bit more to the drops, as the others before me have said. It feels like it should go somewhere larger, not just with a tempo change, but the instrumentation should change instead! Also, hello fellow East of Eden fan!
  4. I think the evidence points most to Sylveon being a flying type. What made me think it as a flying type the most was the fact that it looked a TON like Skyla, with a similar color scheme and the ribbons and pink/red hair and such. My theory is that this little guy was supposed to be released 5th generation and be Skyla's featured partner Pokemon, but they decided against it for whatever reason they wanted (probably for the same reason they decided Alomamola wasn't Luvdisk's evolution, just to screw with everyone lolol). On the topic of Pokemon X and Y, I've been making some concept melodies for X/Y out of B2/W2 soundfonts. Take a listen if you'd like! << Route 3 Theme (Concept) << Cave Theme (Concept)
  5. Just registered! My username is AImightyArceus, with an "i" instead of an "l" in "Almighty". EDIT: Just realized that this doesn't work on Macs D: So I guess I can't actually play
  6. That's what I had tried to establish in the beginning with the background synth playing the 5th and sharp 5th in alternation. I have a feeling that when I adjust the volume between the beginning and the chorus to make them more equal, that tension will become a bit more establish. I might add a few more synths in that section to establish it a bit more. Thank you all so much for these fantastic comments! I am working on this mix right now, and I should have a more updated WIP coming soon!
  7. Here's a remix I've been working on for a little while; a remix of the Shoal Cave theme into 5/4 time signature. Tell me how you think it's coming along so far! I think it's one of my best remixes I've made! It's not completed yet, but the parts that are done are sounding good to me! Tell me what you think!

  8. I was gonna make a dixieland song, but then I realized that synthesized drums suuuuck D: But I was also working on "Mystery" from Lego Island.
  9. Sorry guys I've have a mix in the works but it's still in the works. I hadn't an opportunity to start the remix until last Sunday due to my schedule. Sometimes life gets in the way. :/
  10. I'd like to sign up as a novice for this round! As I've listed before, I use Garageband as my mixing software, but also own Pro Tools (but I haven't ever remixed using it)
  11. I think it's iTunes autoleveling it. I'm not sure why it does that when I export from Garageband... And I can add another snare like it; I actually have tons of snares that sound VERY close to it. And I'll get on dat vibrato!
  12. Updated with a new synth in there for some melodic variance. Not really like the moog from Thing of Gold, but I think this new one I added does the trick https://www.box.com/s/v7m5xumws0fujg7l6acq
  13. Oh my god thank you for telling me about that song. Holy crap that was awesome. Definitely becoming one of my favorites I also thank you for the advice on the lead; I'm workin on it right now!
  14. Thanks man! I'm glad you like it! I am really satisfied with the ambience and instrumentation that I set up for this remix, and while it's not an "odd-time" remix as I typically do, I feel like I did a very good job on this one
  15. So here's a remix from a pretty obscure game, thought it's one attached to me personally because as a kid I always used to play it! It had some cool music, and I thought, why not give it a swing for a remix? This is the result! Hope you enjoy! ReMix: https://www.box.com/s/e6dx3kr8plfbzbnwnuiy Source:
  16. Lol, from all the comments I've gotten about that ending, I'm going to expand it. Was planning to anyways; really that ending stems from the rushed time we had at the end to finish for the contest. I felt bad that I couldn't do a real, true, creative ending so I will be focusing on that. I will also consider adding some spice to the mix, because the synths are pretty similar. That's yet another part of the mix that I've disliked, was the repetitiveness of the sounds. I'll get working on this; thank you guys for all your suggestions!
  17. Or 14.5 West Coast Radio (EXPN Card Required) by PROTO DOME. My goodness is that catchy. And it just uses a little segment of the source, over and over with beats and sound effects. And it's awesome
  18. So here is a piece that I worked on for a little contest called ReMixing With the Stars! I had a lot of fun with this one. Rozo helped me finalize the mastering on this track, as he was my partner in the contest. I am satisfied with this mix, in which I convert this originally 4/4 piece into 5/4, and I am planning on sending it in to the OCR judging panel, but I wanted a few more opinions on this track before I send it in. Finishing touches and the like! Tell me what you guys think! ReMix: https://www.box.com/s/d5ec921aaa3f545a538f Source: Rozo and I placed fourth in the contest. It was definitely a close race for the competitors and we had a lot of amazing competition! Please tell me what you think, everyone!
  19. Congrats to everyone! I loved the entries and had lots of fun participating in this contest! Would LOVE to participate again when Season one starts!
  20. As far as I know Garageband doesn't have that built in; could you recommend a (preferrably free) plug in that would help me with those functions?
  21. SUPER old thread here, but I was feeling nostalgic and listening to some Lego Island tracks on YouTube, and thought of this. God anything new on this? Was this ever submitted?
  22. Thank you for letting me know; I will hopefully partake next week/soon since I missed it this week. Should be fun!
