  1. Made changes based on Rozo's feedback. Hosting on LANDR now since they don't compress things the same way Soundcloud does. Let me know if the link doesn't work as expected and I'll re-upload to soundcloud. https://www.landr.com/collaborator/register?code=e8ca761d-eeea-4500-afa8-0f0b73ba53a6 EDIT: just realized landr sharing requires viewers to have an account, so I’ll reupload to soundcloud today EDIT2: Soundcloud:
  2. Version 5! Mostly mixing stuff, went through and leveled everything in mono and it added a ton more balance to it. Also widened some shit, and i think it sounds much richer now.
  3. Assuming I feel confident enough in it, yeah, I plan to! I'm also super inexperienced w/ mixing so compression and whatnot and dealing with stereo spread is gonna be a loooong process for me. I'll get there though!
  4. https://soundcloud.com/neoluxx/sanctuary-fortress-remix-v4/s-rP7GW v4! Transitions are better, synths reworked, fixed the piano (i think??), and rewrote the high pitched thing for the second verse.
  5. Thanks you guys! I've made some changes to the piano samples on my own after listening to it on some different speakers. Otherwise, I agree with all the feedback and will hopefully get around to making changes soon!
  6. thanks! i'm still not happy w/ the composition yet but it's getting there! anyways, new version: v3
  7. I'm super attached to this one and really want it to succeed! I'm determined to get it to OCR's standards eventually. Here's v2! Drop has been changed to feature more of the source melody, added extra chops and sounds, changed the drums a bit. I think that's enough to warrant a new upload lmao Let me know what you think! (note: i gotta sidechain a lot of shit lmao)
  8. First time here in a loooong time! I had this summer free before heading into my last semester of uni, and for some reason really wanted to dive into music stuff in my spare time. Using Logic now instead of FL! SOUNDCLOUD LINK v2 v3 It's totally un-mixed and un-mastered. I guess right now I'm mostly asking for arrangement/compositional things before I head in and mix it. also, if any of the synths could use work, let me know that, too! Thanks!
  9. See, when it comes to writing it all--I can hear it in my head, but I lack the knowledge of how to make it sound how I want. I'll watch some tutorials or something and see if I can't replace the parts where you're like "NOT THIS AGAIN" with something less repetitive. c: Expect an update late today or late tomorrow.
  10. So I'm playing around with the vibrato and can't seem to make it sound natural enough to bother with it? Can someone help me out there? I'm using Sytrus in FL, cause I'm cheap and can only afford the default VST's xD I was just using a tiny lfo on the volume, and then I was like 'oh my god this isn't working' and kinda added that same wave on everything out of rage xD So, tips? So, the volumes of each of the instruments aren't in sync with one another for a good mix--I'll work on that tomorrow. And then I need to work on making each synth more expressive with vibrato, reverb, and delay--got it. Thanks so far, guys!
  11. Rozo, omg I posted a mix. D:

    It's my first in a while and I'd love it if you'd critique me like you did a few years back. :3

    It's the Soil Disposal one in the remixes forum. c:

    Thanks so much :)

  12. K, I'll definitely try to add some of those. Okay, so yeah I'll turn down that synth for sure. Do you think just that would help the contrast between :36 and 1:06? Or should I add/change something else? I'll try playing around with all that, see if I can make it sound any better. I never really thought of adding anything else to that synth, but now that you mention it, vibrato could be a nice touch. I'll definitely tweak that. Can you like name all those sparse parts? Knowing me and my personality I'll probably start seeing the okay parts as being to sparse and I'll end up changing things that are okay Thanks so much! I'll take all your criticisms into consideration when I go back to edit it next.
  13. Oh my gosh, this place hasn't changed one bit I have had the opportunity to work in school on some music, and that just so happened to result in me remixing the Red Brinstar theme from Super Metroid, which has always been one of my favorites. Please critique harshly--although I've been playing with FL for a long time, I'm still a beginner and would love to know what I could fix to make it better. (also Rozovian if you still frequent here I'd love to hear your criticism ) Remix: Silt Disposal Source: Red Soil
  14. Blake...Project File?

  15. Sorry... When FL was trying to export as an mp3, all I got was static noise. Wav worked fine, so...
  16. This is gonna sound noob-like, but arrangement/interpretation is just really hard for me lately. When I first tried my hand at mixing, I didn't have many options for sounds, and I just used what free stuff on the internet that I could actually figure out how to use. That stuff is better than what I do now. Arrangement is hard for me anyway, though. I see a good track and think how good it is. I sometimes feel like I shouldn't screw it up by changing it, even though that's pretty much the goal of remixing (not screwing it up, but arranging and interpreting). I feel like when those first chords come in, the synth there really fits. Like a lot. Other than that, they're really just generic and plain. Barely any effects at all. The drums are just ACID drumloops that came with FL. It's the same sample over and over again, unfortunately. Drums are not my strong point. Anyway, this drumloop seemed to fit the best, and once I heard it I didn't really want to change it. So, tl;dr: I'm not good at arrangement, my drum samples are rudimentary, and my synths are plain.
  17. He summed it up. Mastering is your main problem. Oh, and the first time we hear the melody, it's the Trance preset from Sytrus (Sytrus>Short Synth>Trance). Not a good thing that I can tell where it's from. I like it, but it makes the mix seem more generic.
  18. It's been almost a year since I last posted here, mostly because I felt that everyone else was better than me, and that I could never get a mix to turn out the way I wanted, and I didn't want anyone in a music community to know I couldn't do music. But after a while of deciding on what to do, I shoved my pride down the toilet and made a thread. Yaaaaaaaaay.... So without further ado...here. I hope you guys don't mind it being hosted on MediaFire--my site's server (not really a server, but whatever) ran out of space, and I'm not going to clutter what it still has with WIP's. I'm kinda stuck when it starts looping again--I don't know what else to add there. Also, the synths seem to be too generic, but I synthesized them myself, so I'm proud of that. Constructive crits? Rozo, I'm waiting...
  19. Well yeah, but I was hoping for a soundfont, sample, or VST.
  20. Alrighty, I need LOTS of synths. I just can't seem to synthesize any of them myself, on any synth. So here. I need the ambient one from this, and also the bell-like one (possibly a gamelan?): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxJFXvyCu3M Both the ambient instrument and the bell instrument (the one at the beginning): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJmEvhOZgjE Any and all help would be REALLY appreciated! EDIT: I use FL9, and if you're giving me a preset for a synth, the synth better be free!
  21. That post has inspired me, Neblix. I have it written down in notepad, and will forever have it for reference.
  22. Does anyone know where I can get a soundfont/VST/samples of that?
