  1. Hey guys! It's been ages since I've posted here, mainly because I haven't worked on a remix in quite a while. I'm happy to say that's changed today! I just finished a remix of Aquatic Ruin Zone from Sonic 2! Now, keep in mind this is a very conservative remix with some parts that are identical to the original, but I extended certain bars and added a little bit of a twist as the song progresses (and then repeats a couple of times). The reason is because this at first was just going to be a complete remake. And it was originally created entirely by ear, every drum hit and every note. T
  2. Hey guys, New tutorial for y'all! This time I explain how to use gated reverb to get that classic big 80s snare or tom sound. This technique isn't too difficult at all and although I'm using Logic Pro, the process should be exactly the same in any DAW where you have reverb and a noise gate. Hope you find this one useful! Cheers, Syllix
  3. The album is now available!!! Check it out! Everyone really nailed it. Some really great tracks here! Enjoy! https://radiosega.bandcamp.com/album/radiosega-presents-collision-theory-charity-album
  4. Hey everyone! Our friends over at RadioSEGA are releasing a new collaborative arrangement album! This album is really special for a number of reasons: -It features 12 musicians (including myself!) and some familiar faces from around the community -I believe it's RadioSEGA's 2nd arrangement album after their 10th anniversary album last year -and most importantly, this album will help support Special Effect which is a charity that helps people with disabilities play video games! The album, titled Collision Theory, was directed by the venerable Opus Science Collective. It will be ou
  5. Hey guys, I decided to make an in-depth tutorial explaining the basics of EQ in Logic Pro X. Although I'm using Logic, the basics of EQ will apply to any DAW you use since all basic parametric EQs function basically the exact same. This tutorial is suited towards beginners who are new to mixing and should help users become more confident when it comes to using EQ. I hope you enjoy it! Cheers, Syllix
  6. Thanks. Bass I believe is a bass patch from Alchemy in Logic Pro which was modified slightly.
  7. Hey guys, It's been forever since I've made a proper remix. This one is definitely leaning towards more of a remake than a more traditional OCReMix so I don't think this would ever be able to be submitted. As the song progresses there's a bit more variation and deviation from the original tune. Over this was sort of a project to get me back into the swing of things. I think I really do need to submit a proper remix one day though. Either way, I'm looking for criticism on this I guess more on the mixing side of things. But any criticism is welcomed. Thanks for listening! ~Sy
  8. Hey guys, I made a new tutorial aimed towards newer Logic Pro users where I explain how to use the various edit tools. I hope some of you find this helpful! Cheers, Ryan
  9. Ok, that sounds reasonable considering how much work goes into making remixes. Any idea on the percentage or how much you're "sharing" with the copyright owner? I wonder if it's a fixed amount or if it depends on certain factors. Either way I feel more confident now. Thanks guys
  10. Hey guys, I'm just curious if it's ok to monetize remixes of video game music on YouTube. I've done some research and even youtube / google's own policy pretty much says if the original work was made or composed by someone else, then no, you can't. It seems to be a bit of a grey area though. Take smooth mcgroove for example. He puts out great sounding material and they're definitely quality videos, but it's not even a remix. It's a straight cover / remake only he's just using his voice as the main instrument. On all of his videos there are ads. I'm asking because I've only just monetized
  11. Hey guys, It's been forever since I made a Logic Tutorial so I thought I'd share it here to help any new Logic Pro users. The tutorial is on reversing audio, and it's very simple and practical although I do go on in more detail to explain some "fine print" when it comes to source files, converting to new audio files, etc. I'm planning on making this one a 2 part video where the next one I will come up with some creative and musical uses for using reversed sound effects. Off topic, I'm also hoping to be working on some new remixes this year and finally submit one to the judges after all t
  12. Hello OCR! Gosh, it's been a stone's age since I've last been here. That's bad And it's what happens when you don't make music for a long time! Anyway, I'm changing that, and I'm back with a new remix to share! This time I decided to go with Phantasy Star Online - Chaotic Bar! aka, the item shop. Because it's been a while since my last remix, I decided I would do more of a remake / remastered version rather than a traditional OCR style remix, but I guess it still counts as a remix as I've built the entire song from the ground up, listening to the original track and picked out the pa
  13. Hey guys, This is my most recent original composition that also appeared on my latest album "Existence." I'm posting this mainly for enjoyment purposes, but I will always accept constructive criticism. Enjoy Genre: Chillout / Ambient Syllix - Departure
  14. Hey guys, It's been a while since I've posted here. I took a break from writing music for a couple of years, with the exception of some Sonic remixes... but I'm happy to finally share some new original music! My new album "Existence" is now available on Bandcamp for FREE! Please check it out and I hope you enjoy what you hear! https://syllix.bandcamp.com/album/existence
  15. Hey guys, I just finished a remix of Sonic the Hedgehog - Marble Zone, and would like to hear your thoughts on it. Not sure if this has any chance of making it past the judges since it's a pretty conservative remix since it started out as a simple remaster of the song. I'm pretty happy with the mixing and production, but if there's anything you think could be improved I'd love to hear it. Thanks for your time guys.
