Newbie (1/14)

  1. After a few months of working on and off this track, I am pleased to finally present this piano/electronic remix of the Main Caverns Theme from the Nintendo video game Metroid II: Return of Samus, which was released in 1991 on the Game Boy. This track proved to be especially challenging to create, namely as trying to replicate the original tune first was very difficult. All those fast and short notes playing fairly quietly in the background at various parts. X_X Sheesh, and I thought my Space Harrier and Castlevania 2 remakes were difficult to craft on my own. ; You can check this track on on YouTube: You can also listen to and download this tune for free from the following: Newgrounds: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/582042 SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/drmackfoxx/metroid-ii-main-caverns-piano-redux Hope you enjoy this song!
  2. From Sonic Paradox comes this new album: a complete collection of all the music from the Sega Master System and Game Gear versions of Sonic 2, redone as piano/electronic remixes and covers! This album was put together over the course of a year by Philip “Dr. Mack Foxx” Byard, John “EspioKaos” Weeks and Thomas “Recorderdude” Hart. Album art by SonicRemix. We all hope you enjoy this compilation! You can listen to this album in it's entirety on YouTube: You can also download this album for free from: SoundCloud*: https://soundcloud.com/drmackfoxx/sets/8-bit-sonic-2-piano-redux MediaFire: http://www.mediafire.com/download/1hs801lu9rzu067/3_8-Bit_Sonic_2-_Piano_Redux_MP3.zip -Album Info.- File Size: 62.4 MB Format: Variable Bitrate LAME MP3 V3.96r @ 32-320kbps Album Length: 30 minutes, 27 seconds Tracks: 21 Composed By: EspioKaos & Dr. Mack Foxx Arranged By: Dr. Mack Foxx MIDI Debugging: Recorderdude Album Art By: SonicRemix *In the unlikley case that downloads run out on SoundCloud, sorry. ; My premium account supports 1,000 downloads on each track per month. Please use the MediaFire download if this happens. Note: I had wanted to provide a version of this album in FLAC format for those who might want it, but could not find suitable hosting that I could afford. Don't want to charge people to download this compilation, either.
  3. It's been a year since John "EspioKaos" Weeks and I released our previous album of piano/electronic covers. So, we hereby present our new compilation: a collection of all the songs and jingles from the 1992 Sega Genesis classic game, Sonic 2, redone in our typical sound scheme! We figured now would be a good time to post this album in commemoration of the recent 20th anniversary of the release of Sonic 2 [November 21, 1992] as well as the 20th birthday of Miles "Tails" Prower, who was first seen in the October 16, 1992 release of the 8-bit version of Sonic 2 on the Sega Master System. Well, enough of me rambling on. The album can be listened to and downloaded on SoundCloud using the link below: https://soundcloud.com/drmackfoxx/sets/sonic-2-1992-sega-genesis We hope you all enjoy this album. A special thanks to JesseProper for lending a hand with the final boss theme in this soundtrack. >Album Information< Total Length: 41 Minutes, 42 Seconds Tracks: 31 File Size: 77 Megabytes Audio Codec: LAME MP3 V3.96r Format: 32-320kbps Variable Bit-rate @ 44.1kHz, Stereo Looking for Sonic the Hedgehog [1991 Sega Genesis]- Piano Redux?

  4. With Halloween approaching, I figured I would take a break from my usual collabs on Sonic the Hedgehog game music with John Weeks and try something different, with a bit of help from my younger brother [Alias: Aaraboga Jones]. After 3 days of work, here is the result. Click a website name below to check out this tune: [Newgrounds] [ ] Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest- Bloody Tears Piano RemixNote: While you can listen to this song on YouTube, you can both listen to and download this track from the Newgrounds Audio Portal. Hope you all enjoy this tune!
  5. Well, here is a piano/electronic cover of the main theme from the 1985 Sega arcade game, Space Harrier. About a month ago I was browsing about YouTube and found inspiration in, of all things, the BGM from the BIOS screen of the V2.1 Japanese Sega Master System. A friend then pointed me in the right direction to the original song from the arcade game. After a few days of near-constant work, this was the result. Hope you enjoy this track. Just click a website name below to listen to or even download this tune: Newgrounds "Space Harrier- Main Theme Piano"
  6. I think I have the Soundcloud link repaired. http://soundcloud.com/drmackfoxx/sets/sonic-the-hedgehog-piano-redux/ However, Soundcloud seems to be having problems with their servers today. I had a hard time navigating the site today and got a lot of error messages there. Sorry for the inconvenience. Hope you enjoy the album. Well! Thank you very much for checking out this album and I'm glad you liked it. Now this is a surprise! I had no idea you were on OCRemix as well, Gario! Nice to see ya. I would agree that there is little variation in the instrumentation and that it could be an issue. You also have a good idea for a bonus track. I do also recall your review on Marble Zone Piano back on Newgrounds. Probably not going to do much more with this set as I'm working on a Sonic 2 album right now. At any rate, it's always nice to read your critique. Thank you very much.
  7. Ah! I can understand the surprise. I have been browsing around the forums a lot more these days and it does seem that complete fan-made albums are indeed very uncommon. Easy enough to understand why: making great remixes or covers takes a lot of time and effort, even for a single track if you really want to make it great. This album took over a year to put together. John and I also have a Sonic 2 album in the works. We hope to have it finished within the next few months or so if all goes well. At any rate, thanks for stopping by Watarimono and Zach! I hope you enjoyed or are enjoying these tracks.
  8. Here is a complete album: covers of all the songs and jingles from the first Sonic the Hedgehog game (Released on the Sega Genesis in 1991) redone in a piano/electronic arrangement. Using the link below, you will have the option to download the entire album at once as a .ZIP archive by clicking the image labeled "Dropbox", or you can download one track at a time through Soundcloud. Enjoy! http://birdtownstudios.web.officelive.com/SonictheHedgehogPianoRedux.aspx >Album Information< Title: Sonic the Hedgehog Piano Redux Composer: John "EspioKaos" Weeks Arrangement: Philip "Dr. Mack Foxx" Byard Total Length: 18 minutes, 17 seconds Tracks: 19 File Size: 32.2 Megabytes Audio Codec: LAME MP3 V3.96r Format: 32-320kbps Variable Bit-rate @ 44.1kHz, Stereo Please Note: I do have permission from my collaborator, John Weeks, to post this album.
  9. Ah. I see. :nod: Thank you very much for checking out my song and for the suggestions. I'm learning as I go and I really appreciate the feedback. Thanks!
  10. "Industrial Intrusion" http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/413303 is a more frantic-sounding version of my first original song "Industrial Ruins" http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/378759 "Industrial Intrusion" is only my third original song so far. What do you think of it? If you ask me, this tune would be good for a boss battle, an escape sequence or other such things in a video game. Hope you enjoy this track!
  11. Well, these are my first songs. Gotta start somewhere. ; I don't even know what "Mastering" is, to be honest. Certainly gives you an idea of my level of experience. :laughs: At any rate: thank you very much for taking the time to listen to my tunes and for the critique. I really appreciate it.
  12. Greetings! I'm quite new to OCRemix, so I figured I would start things off with my first two original tracks. All these tracks are hosted at the Newgrounds Audio Portal for now. My sound font of choice is currently WinGroove Software Synthesizer V0.A4 "Industrial Ruins" http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/378759 This is my first original tune and it was composed in a day after figuring out how to operate my MIDI-sequencing program, Music Studio Independence. If you ask me, this song would be fitting as the BGM for the ruins of an alien or advanced civilization. What wonders will you discover? What horrors await you in the dark, metallic depths? "Reploid Deployment" http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/390747 This song is inspired by the SNES Megaman X games. If you ask me, it would be pretty good as the intro stage to one of these games. I've actually had this tune in my head for several years, but I only recently figured out how to sequence my own MIDI files. Constructice criticism is appreciated, especially as I still have a lot to learn when it comes to working with MIDI files. I hope you enjoy my first compositions.
