  1. https://soundcloud.com/kai-tunes/sonic-knuckles-flying-battery Hey all! Just a neurofunk/mecha inspired remix of the flying battery zone tune. If you're into maniac bass sounds you might like this one. Enjoy
  2. Thought some of you may enjoy my latest works. http://soundcloud.com/ironblue/steel http://soundcloud.com/ironblue/stormbreaker Enjoy
  3. Happy Holidays Folks! Feel free to take a peek and download some stuff I made for friends for christmas!! 1. http://soundcloud.com/ironblue/sonic-the-hedgehog-3-endless 2. http://soundcloud.com/ironblue/cyber-troopers-virtual-on-in 3. http://soundcloud.com/ironblue/xenogears-emotions-ironblues Download it all here: http://www.sendspace.com/file/m06zl3 Let me know what you think!!! edit: Ooooops I posted this in the wrong forum, did not even realize i was in Originals Any chance i could have this moved to the remix section kind moderators? )
  4. i made this a year or so ago for a school project, under my old moniker bumblebeets. for some reason i never allowed it to be downloaded but it also has the highest plays of anything on my cloud haha. so i enabled downloads and figured yall kind folks here would appreciate it, so here ya go http://soundcloud.com/ironblue/bumblebeets-the-legend-of-zelda
  5. hello everyone! http://soundcloud.com/ironblue/titan just posted another track to my beefcloud, and as always i appreciate your opinions and feedback! just a bit of electro inspired by the likes of reading marvel's infinity gauntlet. Hope yall like it
  6. thanks again for the critiques fellas yall are right in that its a bad habit to not correct mistakes like having the low end of the piano be in the same frequency range as the mid range basslines, or making the basslines too busy in areas where they shouldnt be, not panning out percussion enough etc. i just wanted to get this one out of the way so i could start something new (and original) that didnt have those mistakes but for some strange reason more people have downloaded this song off the soundcloud page in the first week more than any one of my tracks. and i almost didnt post it! your suggestions are duly noted and ill take heed as i compose newer music!!
  7. yeah i made little effort to make the piano sound organic, i didnt take the track seriously enough to really put that much effort into it. as for the track choosing i had been wanting to mess around with that song for awhile so i forced it to the 172 tempo. this was mostly just a quick warm up for writing originals, but thank you for the critiques
  8. http://soundcloud.com/ironblue/martin-odonnell-never-forget-ironblue-remix in celebration of my storm eagle track getting rejected, here is another track that would get rejected from ocr! there are a lot of issues with the mastering and what not but that deals with the foundation of the arrangement that i ruined ;3 so maybe at least 1 person will enjoy!! source is way better!!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyDZscyf8lU
  9. CC is right for sure, controlling the velocity as much as possible is so so so so important for making a beat sound natural! Also the ghost notes (tiny, weak hits on a snare or hi hat) CC mentioned are invaluable to make drums sound good as well, especially in faster paced music. if im playing a fast beat on my kit (that isnt just metal double bass pedal runs) i am -always- filling up spaces with ghost notes Listen to songs that you think have a really good sense of rhythm and percussion and try to place where everything is in time. Where the snare is (for example, in a measure of 4 beats, having the snare on the 3 is a very different sound from having the snare on the 2 and 4; such is dnb) Look up some drum tutorials on youtube for different kinds of rhythms (jungle/dnb, latin, samba, metal, etc). trying to "sing" (beatbox) the rhythms in music will give you a better idea of what each line of percussion/drums are doing. i highly recommend looking up videos by jojo maier or bernard purdie, they know how to make a beat sound nice n fat!!
  10. yeah i think the rhythms could be upped a smidge but i did try to maintain as much balance and have everything rest on the same plane so to enforce the atmospheric focus. the subs are fine, if anything they need to be turned down imo! thanks much for the feedback! <3
  11. which bass lines, the subs or the rhythms?
  12. Track i made with a bit of help from some psychic blue aliens i know! http://soundcloud.com/ironblue/stargate
  13. yeah hahah to be honest i dont really care for the approval of OC, at least not with this track, im just glad theres a place to share video game related music! i like to keep my "remixes" close to the original arrangement because the arrangement is what i like to hear, i just like to add different grooves or feels to the song with rhythm (im a nerdy drummer). im really glad you guys appreciate it though thanks for the awesome feedback, youll be hearing more from me !!!
  14. sounds good man, if theres any way i can clear that up for ya let me know how
