  1. That article should say Final Fantasy XI and not XIV. Anyway, this guy deeply inspired other MMOs and his influence on my life is truly massive. I have nothing but gratitude and respect for his work. Thank you, Brad.
  2. I love this one. I feel if there were an official remake of Skies, we would be hearing stuff just like this. Cinematic as all get out and retains the electronic elements.
  3. So this is a mobile game, and I think.. it's in my top 3 RPG OSTs. The game itself is my second favorite mobile game. It really shows what mobile can be when console-style effort is behind it. Unfortunately, it fell to some repetitive gameplay choices, but I still have very fond memories of the cooperative battles. And man, the music is so beautiful. Enjoying anything from this OST in a different way would bring joy to my heart.
  4. Hey Utopia, they are totally the focus as well and I urge you to spread the word about accessing the bonus tracks You can thank DarkFlameWolf, the Director, for getting those included because I was pushing to have them out. The story behind Joe Jonker's Ramirez track is that the OCR Judges were pre-judging all of our tracks and had indicated some minor issues, but Joe insisted his version was exactly as he intended. At an impasse, we had to find another artist. I had been following Joe for years, and I highly encourage you to check out his 'Known to be Lethal' work.
  5. Well, I gave Guifrog "Biolizard" from Sonic Adventure 2 as a reference because, as he hinted, I felt it had that 'psychological confusion' aspect. That ended up combining with his penchant for upbeat vibes. Being a massive fan of Guifrog's work and who he is as a person, just someone who has been through struggles and finds joy and reprieve in his creative work.. I was uplifted and amazed with what he came up with. Gui is one of those artists I hope to meet some day. There's just something really kind-hearted and honest about him. Thanks so much Gui for being a part of this.
  6. Truly, a dark haze has descended upon our hearts, minds, and spirits. Let's rejoice!

    An Apology

    First he insults us, then he refuses to take our wives. I really can't believe this. (Welcome back man. It' ok, just do better, feel good about yourself and where you're headed. You're destined for great things.)
  8. All credit goes to Kylok for really nailing his concept and execution. The remix is greatly enhanced by playing Skies, walking through Valua, experiencing the heavy poverty, and the NPCs telling stories of loss. It's such an iconic segment of the game.
  9. Thanks for having me on this journey. It's literally a dream realized. It was every bit as hard as I thought it would be, plus a little extra (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻ @Levi04 I will seed when I get back home.
  10. I actually like this better than the source. Military Facility Dungeon is one of those universally-popular tracks from the original OST, along with Ixa'Taka, but it's also one of the more quagmire-ish dungeons, so you hear this on loop for.. um, a while. This digests so smoothly, and it's really emotive and.. well, beautiful. The viola front and center is courageous and pays off. It owns the stage and dances with the lead synth. I just love the expressiveness, and its tinge of melancholy. And that's why I recommend The Milk-Fudge Donut.
  11. @Deedubs All your contributions are personal favorites of mine. Furthermore, for some reason.. Silver Crystal resonates with me in a special way. The chill Ice Dungeon-esque vibes evoke images of Fina. You basically brought an excluded OST track back into the mix through a different source. I love that.
  12. @RebeccaETripp delicately expresses the latent, untapped hope of Esperanza, before Vyse and crew arrived. As an expression of 'hope,' Rebecca conveys the spirit of the downtrodden drunkard in Esperanza's bar: down, out, but holding out to feel the vigor of life once again. We intentionally kept this one on the quieter side during mastering, Rebecca. It's such a nice little reprieve in the middle of the album
  13. @Mr. Hu Thank you, that was a such a treat for the staff to read I feel encouraged to come out of my shell and share my personal favorites by disc. Disc 1 Blue Skies, Pirate Surprise by OceansAndrew This was the track that @Rotten Eggplant auditioned with, by mastering OA's track, and he killed it. The positive vibes of SoA are all captured here. Fun-loving rogues just, you know, risking their lives robbing empire ships, possibly causing harm to innocents See, but that's the cynic in me that took hold over the years, as mentioned by @Darkflamewolf in his introduction to
  14. I love this track because the source shines through so vividly. The burst of energy at the beginning, then a 'settling in' as it gradually builds to a nostalgia-shattering finale. On the subject of Deedubs, the question on all our minds was something to the effect of "who is this guy?" I was seriously wondering if he's some well-known producer under an alias because of his quality of work, collaborative spirit, and diverse approach, resulting in success after success.
  15. Prototype took one of the most difficult sources in the OST and gave it the essence of the Gigas: pure power and fear. The civilizations created six monstrosities as weapons of mass destruction, and you really feel it. At one point, I commented that I was addicted to the first section of the song, restarting it over and over. PR added a dope reprise at the end, to my surprise. Love the whole song but felt addicted to that first part. Now I can just play it on loop.
  16. It's in the judging process. So it has to pass evaluation in several key areas. We are not sure how long it will take, but they know our release goal is this year. Any tracks you're particularly looking forward to?
  17. That's a tough one to improve on. Actually.. we felt that way about Last Battle.. some tracks are just perfect. We attempted Last Battle anyway
  18. DFW our project director is in the direct path of Hurricane Florence, although thankfully he does not live on the coast. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.. Rot and I are very worried for his safety and the preservation of his property. DFW has put a gargantuan amount of hours into this along with the rest of us, and I've seen his incredible family on Skype during our chats and joking around. They are in dire need of protection at this time. Please be safe DFW, and return with everything intact.. we're all thinking of you.
  19. Well I keep trying to bribe you with free posters but unfortunately, that doesn't create more time. It's up to you! My recommendation is to focus on your track since it is insanely ambitious, and well.. let me PM you. Still need help with this, folks! Thanks.
  20. I think it needs to be a pretty robust translation, with all the parts. If you're able to do that, it would help us immensely. If not, no worries, we'll keep looking.
  21. We have an urgent request for a track to be converted to MIDI format for an artist. The track is Gilder's Theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i38c83_TDZo Arcadia Legends is the project, an official OCRemix album. We are in fact almost done and aiming for a 2018 submission to OCR! You will be credited in some form on the album website, thank you!
  22. I only read the title but I already know that yes, you should dump her.
  23. It seems today that FFXII on Steam was released as a re-master. There's a very interesting feature where you can choose between the original BGM or the re-orchestrated BGM. Before I begin my first playthrough ever, which should I choose for the best experience? I've never played FFXII before and music is the main reason I love FF. (I still play Theatrhythm to this day.) Edit: I've found a comparison on YouTube: https://youtu.be/QZHQRe2vFJY
  24. Maybe you could take some inspiration from Dark Souls with this one? This request is for an OCRemix album, "Arcadia Legends" which you can find in the Projects forum. There's a panel of two Judges that are screening tracks for final submission. Just be wary of that before taking up the request :]
