  1. I think the huge list of sources (along with your not posting links to them) turns people off from posting feedback...I'm not familiar with the sources at all, so as long as you're confident as far as source usage goes, this sounds great. I absolutely despise atmospheric piano (maybe that's not the technical term, I'm really not theory knowledgeable) but I will say I like this better than most I've heard. The trill and then descending notes around 2:40 caught my attention as sounding rather mechanical. Then again at 2:51, the trill...not sure why, but those two things definitely stood out t
  2. Okay, it's taken me quite a while to find the time to work on this. I think I've finished it up arrangement-wise, but some second opinions would be nice. I apologize for the sloppy performance--I'm not a great piano player to start out with and I hate practicing.
  3. I heard a little Song of Healing here and there in the background piano. I couldn't tell where the main melodies came from. I'm also very familiar with both of these songs (I've played the game a few times and remixed the Song of Healing) so I think Evahn is right. I'd say this sounds completely original except for about 5 seconds when I can hear the Song of Healing in the piano. I'm thinking maybe you use too small of a portion of one source and then immediately jump to a different one? If the listener can't pick up more than a few notes of a melody, he won't recognize the song. Sound-w
  4. A lot of the transitions sound like two different songs put on top of each other, and there's a lot of that. I'm not sure what I should be listening to, and sometimes so much is going on that it's hard to pick up a melody. Some of the notes clash here and there. I don't like that impossibly fast repeated note about two-thirds through--until then I suppose I could imagine two people sitting at different pianos and playing this. I hope you keep working on this.
  5. I also wish this was longer and reached a bit higher of a climax. That's because it sounds so good as it is already, though.
  6. It would be nice to have a quick link to the original, yes. This sounds amazing, to me, but I should include the disclaimer that I'm also a newbie to remixing and I haven't heard the original.
  7. I'll talk to him this weekend. I remember it had something to do with where things installed and where cakewalk looked for synths. By default a bunch of files didn't go where they needed to.
  8. Song of Storms, yes...it's hard to keep it out when I like it so much. I've found it much easier to put different themes together than to develop one theme...to get 'deeper' in a sense, I guess, instead of skipping from song to song. It's the people who are able to use one theme that I admire. Hehe, you probably shouldn't expect midi until thanksgiving, because then I'll come home and use my dad's keyboard. As always, thanks for the kind feedback, all.
  9. Just an idea for now. Still experimenting. EDIT: New one:
  10. Hahahaha! ...Where does the mountain come from?
  11. Argh, I think I checked everything but that. Bitrate, file name, spent forever listing all the songs I included and linking to them (that oughta give the judges a headache...sorry guys...), listened to it a few more times to make sure there was nothing I wanted to fix... Okay, they sound about the same (at least on this computer), so I THINK it's okay. Once again thanks to everyone for all the kind feedback! Very encouraging. I was thinking I'd just submit this one thing, but I guess I'll look into getting my other stuff polished up as well.
  12. Look up when entering a large, empty room, and never walk straight into the center of it. Eat your greens, but be careful. They contain things like crystals, arrows, potions... All women look pretty much the same, except for their hair and outfits, until around age 40. I can move extremely fast.
  13. Very relaxing. This sounds beautiful as is, but I suppose I can see your concern with the bass. I don't think it needs a more intriguing bass until around 1:45. Before that the simplicity works well with the song, IMO. And then again at 3:00 after you finish returning to the simple tune. Yeah, definitely at that point, upon a second listen. I think it just put me to sleep. *yawn* ...
  14. ^What SZ said. However, my bigger concern is composition. The melody sounds exactly like the original, note-for-note except for a few connecting notes added in here and there (which don't usually sound like they belong anyway).
  15. Alright, thanks to Rozovian, I think this is finished.
