  1. Hey guys! I recently finished this cover of 'Magicant', and I'd love to hear what you think of it!
  2. Hey guys, I recently finished putting together this collaboration with the accordion player Jackson Parodi, and I'd love to hear what you think of it! Cheers!
  3. Hey guys, I recently finished putting this small arrangement together and I'd love to hear what you think of it! While this isn't a proper remix, it was fun to write a few extra harmony parts to complement the simple original!
  4. It really is, one of my favourite VGM tracks of all time. Thanks for listening!
  5. Hey guys, I just finished putting this track together and I'd love to hear what you think of it! I usually do very straight transcriptions, so it was fun approaching this as a bit more of an arrangement!
  6. Cheers mate! And I think you're right, especially within these forums. I'm not claiming to be making attempts for submission here - that's just a bit of a world away from what I'm trying to do with these covers, as much as I appreciate the tremendous artistry that OCR is home to! However, from some of the other artists I know doing similar work to myself, I've heard a range of criticisms about Smooth's work outside his arrangements. A frequent one that comes up is that he sounds 'over-processed', which doesn't really seem like a valid complaint to me. Another is that he's got a very limited tonal palette, which I can kind of understand - many articulated parts tend to use the syllable 'buh' - but looking across all his covers, it straight up isn't true. And it kind of seems like criticising a pianist for only making piano covers... But anyway, thanks for the elaboration and encouragement!
  7. Full disclosure, I was tired, thought I was looking at one of your posts and instinctively hit 'add friend' thinking it was 'like page' - but I'm sure our circles would have crossed there sooner or later! I've had that Another Medium cover sitting in my Watch Later list, so I'm sorry it's taken me a little time to get around to listening to it - absolutely sensational. I've been subbed to you for some time and the quality of your playing has always blown me away. I would be thrilled (and a little starstruck) to collab with you some time - please don't hesitate to ask if you ever need an EWI player or clarinettist. I'm always on the lookout for people who can deliver percussion parts for future tracks, so I'll definitely keep you in the loop for that sort of thing if you're keen! Thanks again for the kind words, they mean a lot coming from a player of your stature!
  8. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yH7q5-80C7w Hey guys, I recently finished a cover of 'Snowy' from Undertale using multitracked Electric Wind Instruments, and I'd love to hear what you think of it!
  9. Thanks heaps! I really love just treating it like any other instrument for arrangements Thanks so much! Mine too! Keeping those triplets clean was tricky! Cheers mate! I'm sorry I'm only reading this now, I responded on the other thread you commented on! EWI 4000s by Akai Apologies to everyone for not responding punctually, I wasn't notified of replies to this thread!
  10. Thanks man, I always get worried when I read Smooth comparisons because people seem really down on tracks that are faithful reproductions of the original. I like to approach these things like a classical musician - I'm not touching the arrangement, I'm just here to put my own personal spin on it It's an EWI 4000s by Akai. If you're in the market for one, the 5000 has probably superseded it, but it depends what you're after. They're nearly exactly the same in functionality, the 5000 just has some added convenience (battery pack, wireless). Sounds depend on what you want to load on to it, but the default packs are pretty different: I'm using all 4000 default patches in my videos, which are all pretty synthy and 80s-ish, while the 5000 has attempted to include closer analogues of real instruments. Keep me in the loop if you get one and lay down some tracks!
  11. You bet! I know he's divisive in the community, but I'd be lying if I said he wasn't a massive influence on me making these sorts of tracks.
  12. Hey guys, I recently finished putting together this Super Mario 64 cover, and I'd love to hear what you think of it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_IOs74GP5s
  13. Thanks so much for all your kind praise! It's something I wouldn't mind doing, for sure, but I'm usually happier handling arrangement duties off to someone more in the know than myself - I've loved the work I've done in other people's mixes! That being said, there's some subtle stuff I've added here too - when Julia enters there's an additional pedal bass part that isn't in the original. Baby steps? Thanks so much mate! I think a lot of that is Julia's mixing prowess, she automated reverb in a way that I think fits perfectly. If I was submitting to OCRemix I think it would definitely be something like this where I can play with making the effect of a choir of EWIs!
