  1. I've been making music for 20+ years. The main problem for beginners is that the ambition is more than the ability. Even the ears aren't as developed as someone who has been involved with music for a long time. As long as you have fun doing it and keep doing it, eventually you'll be able to make the music you want to. I wouldn't be too discouraged by the voting either... I'm not.

    I completely understand what you mean by that.. I do want to make amazing music, but yes, I'm still not all that well versed musically. I just recently taught myself how to read music, but I can't instantly recognize a c from a d and so on. I can recognize the tone, but not the note. If that makes sense.


  2. It was just my first thought, but I could never do that. I've only been making music for five years, but it's what I love. I already knew that I wasn't decent at remixing when I signed up for it.

    And Rexy, it's not that she's not supportive, but she's the one who encouraged me to submit my Remix, even though I knew it wasn't anything special. It was my rough draft, but as I explained about my computer earlier, all I really got was that. :/ But, I will try harder next time. Maybe it was the wrong style, :???: or song. Either way, I'm kind of proud of myself for even submitting. I'm normally not very 'out there' with my music, even though I have like..80 songs of my own.. :-?

  3. Thanks, everyone. And hey, I mean..someone had to come in last place. 8) But, honestly, it does mean a lot to me that you all gave me such inspiring words. At six a.m. this morning, I was ready to quit music in general. Which, I don't think I could anyways.. I just get rather impatient and over worked about it, and my computer is fried, so when I'm mixing, at any moment my computer can crash. I get rushed, and impatient.. I can say, however, all of the sounds in my song was original production :mrgreen:, excluding percusion.

  4. I unfortunately have had no net access, whatsoever. I suppose I missed finding out where I ranked, although I wasn't expecting it to be highly ranked anyways. It was my first Remix, so just trying to do this made me happy. Congratulations, everyone.

    Edit: Well, I saw my rank.. :/ But, I actually had guessed that would happen. I shouldn't have listened to my fiancé on this one. xD I apologize to everyone for mucking up this competition, as well as for possibly damaging anyones hearing. :/ lol

  5. Btw, Zircon, if I haven't already said so - thank you for doing this. It was fun participating. Even if I don't rank, I still had fun.

    I would also like to thank zircon for this opportunity.

    And as I have said before, this was my first time remixing, and I know mine wasn't the best.

    Thanks to all who actually voted fairly, and gave everyone a chance. I will [hopefully] be voting this weekend.

  6. Alright, first, nevermind the bland (and overused) title. This song actually came to me while I was trying to remix a song for the upcoming Final Fanatsy VI Remix competition. It has nothing, nothing at all, to do with that remix, but I did want to get some feedback, from anyone, negative or positive, if that's alright.

    I know it's a rather repetitive song, but I didn't want to do too much, or too little. All sounds (except percusion) produced by myself. The synth and bass I created (only using 3xOsc) and the sound effects are various other synthesizers. All on Fl Studio (sorry, no FLP either).

  7. Not sure how much this helps, but the song is created around the Octatonic scale. If you use that source, it might help to keep that in mind.

    I thought it was created around the Lydian scale? At least that's what my friend thought. Thanks though, I'll keep that in mind.

    I'm still not entirely sure on which direction I may take it, yet. I put 'I' because my friend has college to attend, and, rather disappointingly, has abandoned me on the project. I have confidence that I can get it finished on time, however. 8)

    I may just end up submitting another one instead, or maybe even 'New Continent' and another one. We'll just have to see what happens between now, and next weekend.

  8. So, a friend of mine, and myself are definitely going to be a part of this competition, however, we have never remixed a video game song before. Is there any advice anyone can give us? We've decided on 'New Continent' as our remix. At the moment, we're dissecting it, and remaking it to get a feel for it, before we begin remixing. We're not using any sheet music, or any other references, all by ear, but what I'm having trouble with (I edit/arrange and he composes), is the remixing part. I don't want to stray away from the original sound to much, and obviously the main part of the song needs to be the main part of the remix. I guess my problem is trying to find the right sounds and such. Any help?
