  1. This sounds great! I'm not familiar with the source, but this definitely sounds like OCR quality. I say submit it and see what happens. Great job!
  2. I got a cheap Composer Cloud subscription during Black Friday and so I've been trying out libraries here and there. The Hollywood libraries are much better than the old Symphonic Orchestra library I have.
  3. Those are definitely good ones! Maybe I should take a crack at Ichor or Sekhmet next. Actually I have a new brass library that would make Sekhmet sound amazing. Edit 11:50 PM: Here's a rough draft of Sekhmet I came up with tonight: https://soundcloud.com/willpisani/sekhmet-jet-force-gemini. The soundscape needs some work and I need to work on 0:45 and onwards, but it's a good start. I don't think they're finished because of a variety of things. Depending on the specific track, the instrumentation may not be fully implemented the way I want. Or the sound levels of each instruments need to be adjusted. Or certain instruments need to be panned left or right. Or the articulations of the instruments need to be improved. Sometimes I add in new parts and adjust the octaves of certain sequences up or down to fit new instruments. Unfortunately, as you can see, there's a lot of different things that might make me say a track is finished or not.
  4. No worries! Thanks! JFG definitely deserves an orchestral makeover, I agree. My plan for 2019 is to release an album of Golden Sun music, but maybe I can fit in some JFG music, too. I do have a few more JFG songs as works-in-progress, but they're nowhere near done. Here they are: Character Select, Floyd Race, and Title Theme.
  5. I don't think I've ever seen my music referenced in threads that I didn't start. It's a pretty cool feeling! Of the two, I agree that the original is a bit better. Mine feels like it's plodding along; it's not crisp like the original. I've thought about doing a whole JFG album using sample libraries, but that's not what you're looking for. What might be more realistic is having a university orchestra or a smaller ensemble record a few pieces. I wouldn't worry about licensing the music. From my understanding, it's not too hard obtaining licenses for most things. If you want to get a team together to take a crack at an orchestral JFG album (using sample libraries or real instruments), I'd be happy to help out.
  6. Sounds great! I love the atmosphere you have made here. The various instruments mesh very well together. My only suggestion is I think the bass is a touch too loud. Other than that, it's great!
  7. This is really cool!!! As far as submission goes, I'm not sure how the judges would feel about this, but I say go for it! I don't think you need to worry about humanization, though. It should sound like a video game (which it does).
  8. It's not traditional to have guitar in an orchestra, but it works. Sometimes you just need that guitar sound, especially with video game music (see Video Games Live with Tommy Tallarico). Your covers are pretty good! My favorite is Dragon Roost Island.
  9. Sounds good! It could use some humanization to make it more realistic.
  10. Sounds good so far! I'm looking forward to when it's completed. I like your idea of combining themes with similar notes and chords. Maybe you could try adding pieces of each theme to the other themes?
  11. This is really good! I like how the soundscape changes; it never gets boring (which can be a concern with a longer track like this). This is definitely an improvement over the source track.
  12. This is great! I got chills while listening/watching. Great work on the video, too. Have you ever thought about putting your music on Spotify?
  13. This is awesome! A live flute would definitely add more life to the remix. You can definitely still hear the source tune so it's not too liberal. I could see this on the front page as well.
