  1. I listened to your remix and most of it is great. The sound design is quite impressive (definitely captures that mixture of Industrial EBM and Hardbass). The overall arrangement is solid and fits the piece to this style well. I also think "Birth of a God" is slightly underrated due to being followed up by one of the most iconic boss themes in gaming history, "One Winged Angel", and overshadowed by the latter. I can tell you put a lot of work into this remix. However there is one major flaw I noticed, the intro is too long and monotonous (even for me). It sounds like a 5 second loop expanded to a minute and a half with minimal variation. The original's intro has some repetition but is much shorter and more varied. I feel the remix would benefit from making said intro about 20 seconds long. Sorry if I sound harsh, the rest of the remix is awesome. Also I haven't gotten a remix on the site before so I'm probably not the best person to critique a track. Still I feel this remix has a lot of potential and might actually pass with some slight adjustments.
  2. Hi, I decided to follow this thread for a couple personal reasons. I think OCRemix needs more Touhou remixes on the site (given there's a large fandom just for the games' music and remixing it, there's a shocking lack of them here). I also feel this arrangement is flawed with bad samples and many of the points made by Hemophiliac are pretty valid. I was right about the source choices being questionable (not much connecting them) but the arrangement just needs more focus. However I wouldn't give up on this piece yet because I feel it has a lot of potential and could potentially be great if refined. Don't give up, man.
  3. Hi, I've been meaning to respond for a few days but haven't gotten around to it yet. I'm a big Touhou fan and love Zun's music. I find the arrangement to be rather ambitious and pretty solid in my opinion. I feel the many themes are glued together well enough that it almost sounds like one individual piece. Do you mind telling us some of the reasons behind the theme choices because the only common theme is Touhou 6-9. However there seems to be a big issue with the remix that would get it rejected, the samples are rather poor and a bit grating (sounding like a mediocre midi font). With better samples or at least mixing, I could see this passing. Then again, I've never gotten a remix on the site and am not a judge (my ears aren't even that good) ...
  4. I love Kingdom Hearts and have been a fan since I discovered the game in 2003. I feel like "Traverse Town" is very recognizable but slightly overlooked. This minor key arrangement sounds gorgeous and gives a bittersweet perspective to the town. The story behind this remix is interesting and the result was worth the wait.
  5. Hi, hope everyone's doing well. I've always admired how some people mix multiple sources together in a way that's seamless and coherent. I've always wanted to do that but I've got no idea how to start. I like writing original pieces but want to do something more OCRemix appropriate. I'd like some tips on doing this. I know to transpose the pieces but what next? Please give me a little advice. Here's some examples. Yes I'm a huge KH fan ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8HoMQVVn5c&t= https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zS0RIfG91EQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0ZXLGct88g&list
  6. I've been told quite a few times that my music is a little repetitive in the leads. I'd kinda like to fix that some time. Thanks for the feedback and sorry for the late reply. Also the second one is the remix and the first is original.
  7. Hello, I'm Ronald Poe. I'm an eccentric electronic musician (I specialize in Dark Ambient and my own unique style). I've wanted to get a game remix/arrangement on OCRemix for many years but am not sure if I can reach the standards (I have bad anxiety). Could someone please give me tips and/or advice to succeed. Sorry if this is the wrong section. I made these in FL Studio and think they sound decent. I'm curious if there's other pieces of video game music you think I should try. I'm also a massive fan of Kingdom Hearts. Here's a couple pieces of mine (one original and one a remix). These are just demo on my youtube account. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2vfkuqr3QtQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUO1rwqwfh8 "Emperor's Theme" (House of the Dead 2). This is the original version of the second piece for reference. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iB40NccvzDw
  8. I feel this track is well done. The Madonna-style dance elements fit the melody nicely. I believe the LGBT community is full of nice people who deserve respect.
  9. Hi, I'm electronic musician and am experimenting with DnB. Which tracks from Sonic A2 can be used for this album? I might join it if you'd let me (I've been kicked off multiple remix albums though but am improving).
  10. Because I like Darkpsy as a style, I decided to listen to your remix. I've never played Prince of Persia so I'm not familiar at all with the sources. The sound design is really cool and the atmosphere is sweet in a trippy way. It was a little long but ultimately stayed interesting. The kick was less present than usual but I found that a nice touch. You may need a second opinion but overall, good job.
  11. I've been a Pokemon fan since Gen 1. It's crazy how joyful he makes the electric guitar and Pokemon Black sound. Good job.
  12. I admit I'm still trying to decide the tracks to remix. I'm probably doing the Clever but might do the Conqueror as well. I can't think of track that fit the Clever (except the Episode Ignis Theme) or the Conqueror though. Got any suggestions? Once the tracks have been decided, I can start a track.
  13. I'm an Electronic musician and I'm at least decent at ambient music. How would one go about taking an ambient theme (stage or character theme presumably) and remixing it into a boss theme? You know like Donkey Kong 64 did for its soundtrack. I've already searched the internet for tips but didn't find much at all. Here's where I got the idea from. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BossRemix Someone else's example.
  14. I love Kingdom Hearts as a series (it's been one of my favorites since 2004) and am happy to see more mixes from the series here (aside from KH1, it's shockingly under-represented). The original theme is one of the best melancholy battle themes out there and this remix certainly does it justice. It almost feels like a Limit Cut fight with Roxas could fit to this. The source is mostly easy to identify and the original material is great and blended masterfully. This is probably one of the better KH remixes on the site too, good job.
  15. I agree that the Episode Ignis theme should be incorporated into my theme for The Clever. I can't decide on another piece to incorporate or be a base for it. I also love the idea of a classical sounding melody for the remix. Also that transcription of "Cosmogony" is pretty good.
