  1. The mixing is definitely more bold here than usual, which I think is a step in the right direction. The glock is a tad on the loud side. I love the drone. Another very well done piece! YES
  2. I'm not having any issues with the mixing, it sounds great to me. The song does sound a bit repetitive, but it is very well executed and enjoyable to listen to. YES
  3. I wasn't around for the first version either, but I'm loving this version. Great energy, good arrangement, mix is clean. I love the mix of instrumentation. Very enjoyable! YES
  4. What a cool idea to mix this theme in with Mario Kart. I love it! I think the production is in line with what I'd expect from any Kart source, so I have no issues with that. I'm not a fan of fadeouts, but even that fits into context. What a creative approach. YES
  5. What a unique and varied mix! Interesting how the same exact motif can have many different moods within one piece. Production is good. Damn I hate fadeouts! Still, I'm onboard. YES
  6. I agree with Sir_NutS and I will add a couple of things. The kick being used is a tuned kick which isn't really appropriate in this type of song, and it is not in tune with the song anyway. A plain punchy kick with a minimal tail would work better here. During the heavy parts of the song there are too many elements competing for space both in frequency and soundscape placement. The different parts also conflict sometimes in writing, which happens when there are too many complex parts playing at once. Interesting ideas but definitely needs some arrangement and production work. NO
  7. This is lovely, I love the combination of winds, bells and harp, and the bird sounds are a nice touch. I wish the overall master was a touch louder. YES
  8. Hi, i made a music video for the Portal contructing lemons remix, you made over at ocremix a while back, hope you don't mind me using your audio, It's an awesome remix. cheers.

     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
  9. Mixing could certainly be improved, soundscape cleared and everything made more distinct. It sounds unnecessarily flat and mushy in that regard. But the arrangement and instrumentation remind me of an epic storytelling Genesis track from their very early days. Well done. YES
  10. Whoa, cool. Kick could be louder, but hot damn. YES
  11. Oh man, I love this piano playing! It's just a straight playthrough of the source though, which isn't transformative enough for OCR, but I'm loving it. I'm feeling like I'd love to add a drum groove and bassline and synths to this! I'd love to hear this again with something unique added to set it apart from the original. NO (but I'd love it if you resubmit)
  12. Agreed about the bassline being mud, it's very washed out. Also, the bass writing feels too busy, or at least, it tends to clash with the drum/perc writing more than it should, rather than complimenting it. Starting at 0:30, the bass has swing and the drums don't (later on, bass and drums both have swing, which feels better). Other than that, the rest is dreamy and luscious. Rebecca, I still recommend you look into finding ways to make your soundscape more distinct, more 3D. This could be so much more lively than it is. Regardless, it is lovely. YES
  13. I don't feel much connection to this source and it's a source I know well. It's a bold source to choose to remix since the source is somewhat nebulous. The synths are super simple and need some motion/interest/modulation/sidechaining or something. Beats are simple and thin. Good start but this needs some work. I agree with Larry about hitting up our workshop. NO
  14. What an interesting combination of potentially-serious EDM and super silly brass and accordion, all well executed and ultimately giving this a cute comic flare. I like the total change of pace at 1:55 to a somewhat reggae groove. Oh, a trucker's gear shift haha! Nice bitcrushing. Oh wait, a second gear shift! And a third! Ok this is super fun, love it. I feel like shopping for bombs now. YES
  15. I like this track! I find it fun and I'm not bothered by the glitching/pumping. I am not sure if the source material used verbatim is an audio rip, to me it changes in level of reverb from wet to dry, which indicates it has been re-created using the same synth (but I could be wrong). Where I do find an issue though is with the direct copy-paste of that last section. I agree with Larry that just something minor changed, added, etc. in that final passage to differentiate it from the previous identical passage will get the job done. Other than that it gets my vote. NO (borderline, please resubmit)
