  1. Thank you for your review Rozovian. No need for a full mod review; this track is no longer in production. It ended up being more of a headache than it was worth. I've moved on to other, non video game related projects. You can queue this thread for deletion if you wish. Regards, antiPLUR
  2. Here is the "final" version. I feel its done at this point, and I don't want to make any more structural changes. I ran it by some non musician fans of the original and they seemed to like it. I'm happy with the mixing, so I'm not sure that there is much else to do. Let me know your thoughts. https://soundcloud.com/dichter/mecha-sephiroth-those-chosen
  3. Thanks for the info. I love the original song so I'll probably finish this one regardless, but its good to know ahead of time whether or not it will be disqualified.
  4. I don't think this qualifies for OC but I started it this morning and thought some Borderlands 2 fans might get a kick out of it. I think there is some rule about remixing songs that are featured in a video game but aren't VG music. If anyone is aware of the particulars on this please post here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikCta6AF1Vs
  5. Changed this back to Work-in-progress status. You can hear the latest revision here: https://soundcloud.com/dichter/mecha-sephiroth-those-chosen
  6. There was an unnecessary delay on a return somewhere. I removed it. If you are talking about the "alarm" like sound in the very beginning, it is supposed to be that way. I fixed many of the resonance issues above. As for the "bit crushing" (which actually isn't bit crushing at all or even sample reduction but I'm not going to get into my synthesis techniques) I removed some of the shrillness and made it clearer but I want it to be somewhat jarring. It is about a robot after all The leads have been changed to strings, and some EQing has been done I did make the vocals slightly clearer by adjusting some of the release times, however I don't want it to be too intelligible. Its supposed to have a "cylon-like" aesthetic Timing should be fixed, let me know if you still hear this. The muddiness should be resolved as well Please elaborate, I'm not sure what issue you are talking about. Is it a stereo phase cancellation issue in the lows? It seems rather mono compatable to me although my monitors don't have a sub. I will consider this. ATM I am happy with the arrangement. I'd like to see what some others have to say about it. Leads changed to various string instruments. I'm hoping the original "uncanny valley" issue is resolved; they sound ok to me but I'm not able to work with a real orchestra so there are limits to what I can do. Not sure whether to be offended or not by this statement. It did start as a joke but I've put quite a number of hours into it at this point. Thank you.
  7. Thanks, that's a lot of good advice I'll get to work on it.
  8. When I try to click the "go advanced" section of the first post in my thread (to change the status) it just gives me a message that I need to select a post to quick reply to and doesn't let me change it. (Moderator Flexstyle was kind enough to change it for me but suggested I post here)
  9. Ok, after a lot of hard work, fun, and many more energy drinks than is healthy for human consumption, I finally have a working draft of this remix. https://soundcloud.com/dichter/mecha-sephiroth-those-chosen
  10. Ok revamped everything. Instead of having an excision transformer noise feel it now has a more mechanical Steampunk sort of feel. Changed the strings to beeps, MAJORLY beefed up the bass. Let me know what you guys think about the changes. https://soundcloud.com/dichter/mecha-sephiroth-those-chosen
  11. Oh and yes, the example I took could mislead you!

    I wanted to explain to people that they could arrange a theme from a villain, which is not their battle theme. But don't worry, "One-Winged Angel' will be fine! :)

  12. On the contrary, we encourage people to remix boss themes, no matter which boss it is! :) And yes, I think your remix, with some work, may fit the album! :)

  13. I am aware the the sub bass really needs to be cranked for this to work properly, this is really just a preliminary proof of concept and I mixed it without a sub. I will look into the problem of the melody not being apparent enough and try to find a solution that addresses the "uncanny valley" issue at the same time. Thank you all for the suggestions *edit* wow that link of that other mix sounds really similar, especially the vocals. I wonder if I should change this one up a bit. :/
  14. Hey you posted something about your "badass" compilation in my WIP thread for "Mecha Sephiroth", but I am confused as to why. In your thread it says you can not use a main boss theme, and it actually uses "One Winged Angel" as an example of something you can't use, which is the source for "Mecha Sephiroth". Would you be interested in having this song on the compilation?
