  • Biography
    I love remixing as a side hobby for when I have plenty of free time. Otherwise, I do graphics design, video production, web design and stuff.

    Recently I adopted an ambient, glitch, and complex style, but I have materials for multiple styles. If you need effects processing, drum programming, miscellaneous sound design, or mixing help, feel free to come see me! I'd be happy to help refine the mixing on your song. All I'd ask in return is for you to tell others about me if you liked what I did with you, but only if you want to.

  1. I think from what I can tell, the mixing feels cleaner in the reverb, and the treble has a lot less clutter! I believe you also added a bit of an ending too which is nice. For the most part I think the arrangement has stayed pretty similar to what you had before, though I haven't exactly A/Bed it very much. Just looking at the waveform though, I can see the dynamics changing more effectively. Overall, I still think it isn't easy to tell whether this would be a YES or not. The arrangement doesn't seem to have changed much since then (it's still tough to follow the melody and realize what direction it is going, imo), but as far as the mixing goes, it's a huge improvement. Much better on the dynamics and upper treble mixing. I'd say give it a shot and see what the panel thinks!
  2. Would be cool to see this actually played! Seems like a good arrangement, just not actually realistic-sounding (yet?).
  3. NIce, I liked the arpeggiating plucks in the middle. Normally I look for progression in the remix, and it's kind of there, although it does have room for more---maybe add polyrhythmic elements alongside the arpeggios in the middle. When you introduced the castle melody at 2:24, I actually thought it would be a faster (less stretched-out), more spatially-upfront melody. The ending also fades out very quickly. Other than that, nice and chill vibes, good listen.
  4. Ooh this is nice. Heard it on rainwave. 100% would recommend. Actually way beyond its time to be from 2005.
  5. Here's what I could do to this in about an hour. BLORGx_2.flp I just cleaned up the mixing, added some filler fx, and showed a trick with ride cymbals and pitch shifting.
  6. Just released this atmospheric/ambient/electronic music album! Hope you find the time to check it out! ❤️ https://timaeusproductions.bandcamp.com/album/rising-above I started writing the tracks for this album since 2016! With Graduate School studies going on simultaneously, and the recent worldwide fiasco, I feel the world needs motivation. The structure of this album is designed to depict a metaphorical ascension to greatness, to hopefully encourage you all to breathe, get up, and get air into your lungs by being an overall positive and outgoing person!
  7. I love the overtly positive vibe this has. It would cheer anyone up.
  8. It seems I requested this to be remixed (from Ys 1) back in the day, and in a way this got fulfilled! Awesome!
  9. Ooh that bass is tight! I also really like the way the acoustic and electric parts were mixed in the first half!
  10. Can I just say I first read this to say Love instead of Lowe?
  11. Excellent, dramatic orchestral work with a lot of dynamic contrast! You don't hear that a lot on OCR. The 3:30 mark or so was very cool and much like the battle charge you wanted to convey.
  12. Did you check your Sound Settings if you are on Windows, and see if Windows is applying "Enhancements"? Here's an example... I right-clicked my Speaker icon, went to Sounds > Playback tab and chose the appropriate Output Device, then went to Properties > Enhancements. I have turned this off for a long time, because the "Loudness Equalization" option would attempt to change your music volumes depending on its actual loudness. That may be going on.
  13. Ooh, this is sick! I can't believe I missed this one. Probably coulda cut the last 6 seconds which were total silence, but that's okay.
