    Heya, this is Master Mi. ))

    I'm an ongoing video game remixer who totally likes soundtracks and remixes which have been created with passion, spirit and some nice tunes.
    No matter if these are rad rocking beats or rather calm, emotional tracks - I like various genres, depending on my mood and temper.

    Of course I'm a big fan of video games 'cause they remind me a lot of my awesome and really unforgotten childhood time.
    Just this feeling - to see the world with the eyes of your inner child, with this great intensity, excitement, life force and especially to really feel this way - is a special gift that inspires me within my whole life.
    It's also a good basis for creating a soundtrack or remix.

    My DAW: Samplitude Pro X3 Suite

    If ya wanna listen to some tracks and remixes I'm currently working on check out this:

    Beside composition, music production and video games I'm also interested in many other things, such as:

    - martial arts

    - philosophy

    - nature

    - healthy lifestyles, natural diets and longevity
    (I'm eating raw since 2008 and a raw pescetarian diet is my health care - no doctors, no medication, no processed food, no sickness. Just raw, natural and species-appropriate food. This lifestyle totally rocks!)

    - literature and movies/animes

    - planting trees (such as free fruit trees for everybody), permaculture, freestyle urban gardening & landscaping and bringing back some life to my hometown
    I also try to take part in ecological, self-sufficient, sustainable and political actions together with some nice girls 'n' dudes from this town to make some changes.


    Just keep in mind...

    Even in a tough world like this, always be yourself, choose and explore the path of your soul and your true self.
    Follow your inner light and the higher aspirations that come from deep inside you.

  1. Thanks. )) I've already thought about some calm reverberating cymbal sounds at this point or some slow orchestral/industrial bass drum or snare percussion - but I'm not quite sure about this. Maybe a drum-free, mystically melodic part isn't that bad at all - but I'll try some percussion stuff before. One more question - what do you think about the rock/metal part from the beginning of this video until 0:30? Is there a bit too much hall or interference in the lower section and should it be a more dry, thick 'n tight or is it okay according to your ears and studio technology?
  2. Insane - found a nice combo of a smaller 3-way-speaker system with subwoofer for my sharp-eared flat that might be good for mixing and music production purposes - though its smaller size. 1) Presonus Eris 3.5 Speakers >>> https://www.amazon.com/PreSonus-Eris-E3-5-Professional-Multimedia/dp/B075QVMBT9/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?s=musical-instruments&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1526725108&amp;sr=1-1-spons&amp;keywords=presonus+eris+3.5&amp;psc=1 >>> and 2) Fostex PM-SUBmini 2 >>> https://www.thomann.de/gb/fostex_pm_submini_2.htm?ref=intl&amp;shp=eyJjb3VudHJ5IjoiZ2IiLCJjdXJyZW5jeSI6IjIiLCJsYW5ndWFnZSI6ImVuIn0%3D I guess this could work even for ordinary flats with noise-sensitive people around - within a smaller studio environment where you still can hear a good amount of details with an hopefully flat frequency response at the right hardware settings. I ordered the stuff after checking lots of alternatives in the smaller studio size sections and will be able to test the new stuff in about two weeks - will leave ya a feedback if somebody is interested. What's your opinion about (or maybe your experience with) those two components for smaller studio environments? And what do you think sounds better and more natural with a good flat frequency response - Presonus Eris 3.5 or 4.5? I tend to go for Presonus Eris 3.5 because there the mids don't seem to mix up with the bass in the speakers so much - so it could be working excellently with the subwoofer as a separate bass unit. ))
  3. Dudes - I've checked out the Adam T5V. They were awesome in the store to listen to (even in comparison with the A7X, T5V seem to make a deeper bass and a cleaner sound somehow) - and now at least I know that I've mixed my coming Lufia remix already very well with my headphones and my Logitech Z533 speaker system. I bought the Adam T5V studio monitors - but in my room I recognized that they are roaring so much that this would probably mean war with my neighborhood. The sound is really too heavy for my flat. So, I guess I'll bring them back and stick with my Logitech Z533 speaker system which has obviously the perfect size and sound for my production room in my flat. It's really annoying because I was really on fire to go for some high quality studio monitors. But maybe somebody has another tip for me what could be a good quality 3-way speaker system (high & mid speakers + subwoofer bass) that could be useful for production purposes in a medium-sized flat as well (primarily an energy-saving speaker system with good sound quality, flat frequency response, black/dark colour and a cool design) instead - at least something which has a bit smaller size than studio monitors and which doesn't roar that heavy... What do you guys think about a combination of: 1) Presonus Eris 3.5 Monitor Speakers >>> https://www.amazon.com/PreSonus-Eris-E3-5-Professional-Multimedia/dp/B075QVMBT9 >>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2o9GCtaimjU and 2) Yamaha NS SW 50 Subwoofer >>> https://www.amazon.com/YAMAHA-subwoofer-NS-SW050-B-Black/dp/B01LZRLF6E/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1526718076&amp;sr=8-7&amp;keywords=Yamaha+NS+50 Subwoofer could be a bit smaller - but wouldn't this be a great 3-way studio speaker as well (compared to my Logitech Z533) to hear most of the details in a mix within a small room and without my professional headphones?
  4. Thanks for the many different points of view. Is somebody able to make a comparison (based on own listening experiences) between JBL LSR 305 and the Adam T5V or Adam A5X series?
  5. So, you don't think that the Yamaha studio monitors (MSP series are the more professional versions - compared with the HS (Home Studio) versions)) are a bit too bright and high-pitched compared to the natural sound signals?
  6. Thanks for the quick response. )) I edited the topic with some good studio monitor speakers in my momentarily closest range according to my current knowledge if you want to have a look at, too.
  7. Yo, dudes. I already have some good professional producer headphones (Sony MDR 7506 - I'll definitely keep up with those!) and at least a nearly decent, fairly faithful multimedia speaker system (Logitech Z533). But now I'm lookin' for some nice for a better studio monitor speaker system because it can be still a big difference concerning to the right mixing. I've tested some studio monitors in a store (Fluid C5 & Alesis M1 Active 520 USB) these days but I wasn't really that satisfied with those because the bass was way to heavy or not defined enough. And in in generell it wasn 't the crystal clear sound quality I've expected - except at some really big and expensive concert speakers I can't afford and for which I don't have enough place (not to mention the possible electricity bill by using those things :D). I was probably looking for some Yamaha-NS-10-like studio monitors 'cause some top producers would probably say that if a mix sounds great on these speakers the mix would sound good on any other speaker systems. So, I'm looking for a speaker system with following features: -------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1) neutrally EQ-ed crystal clear sound 2) wanna hear details you don't hear on every speaker system or headphones exactly (like if there's too much or too less hall, if the bass is tight enough or if similar frequencies or their halls bleed into each other) 3) should play a decently deep bass level where you don't miss relevant low frequencies 4) not too big in size - should fit on my desk, so a fitting size would be >>> 18 cm * 25 cm * 18 cm (width/height/depth) at the maximum size 5) should be energy-saving speakers (so... about 100 to 150 W at the maximum level) 6) should have something like front bass ('cause the rear of the speakers will be directly at the wall or maybe a few centimeters away from the wall) 7) colour should be a mostly dark/black design -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Maybe you have some extensive experiences with this topic and a good advice for me and all the others who are concerned with the studio monitor or speaker system stuff. PS: I'm currently choosing between following Studio Monitors: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1) Adam A5X >>> https://www.thomann.de/gb/adam_a5x.htm (pretty expensive, but nearly high-end German quality with a really accurate flat frequency response, highest frequency range from 50 to 50000 Hz, front bass, not oversized and pretty cool design) 2) Adam T5V or T7V >>> https://www.thomann.de/gb/adam_t5v.htm >>> https://www.thomann.de/gb/adam_t7v.htm (were actually my favorite ones 'cause of the top German quality, the good range into the lower bass sections until 45/39 Hz up to the higher frequencies until 25000 Hz, the nice price, the really really really awesome design, the low wattage - but the size (depth about 30 cm!!!) and the rear bass could be a problem) 3) Yamaha MSP 5 Studio >>> https://www.thomann.de/de/yamaha_msp_5_studio.htm (pretty nice stuff as well and top Japanese quality, but seem to have not that accurate flat frequency response I was expecting from those - seem to be a bit higher pitched and lacking in bass than all the others, but really low wattage, front bass and compact size for the great frequency range from 50 to 40000 Hz, design could be a bit cooler) 4) JBL LSR 305 >>> https://www.thomann.de/de/jbl_lsr_305.htm?ref=search_prv_6 (pretty solid, decent stuff, nice frequency range from 43 to 24000 Hz, cool design, acceptable size and really nice price (there 's an offer of a 2-speakers bundle and 2 stands for only 249 Euros), unfortunately with rear bass unit and some users complain about minimal hissing noises and that you have to turn up the volume a bit more to hear everything you need) 5) Mackie MR524 or MR624 >>> https://www.thomann.de/de/mackie_mr524.htm?ref=prod_rel_415975_4 >>> https://www.thomann.de/de/mackie_mr624.htm (decent quality, acceptable frequency range from 45/38 Hz to 20000 Hz, quite acceptable size, speakers with the lowest wattage at this size, but just again rear with bass unit and I can 't really stand the design with the 2 green leds which are on the same side of both speakers) I guess I'll go for the Adam T5V or the Adam T7V studio monitors if the big size/depth and the rear bass against the wall won't make too big problems in my production and living room - will check these out in a music store in a few days.
  8. Thanks for the feedback. )) And yeah, the guitar articulations of the clean electric guitar I still have to program for each note (they 're only step-sequenced for this review, so some notes might sound a bit off - but I'm glad I removed the slides before :DD). The length of this part could be fitting - 'cause the whole track might go about 7 minutes and the rest of the track will contain some heavy rock/metal stuff. So this calm, mystical part could be an adequate break before the heavy musical final with the battle against Daos kicks in. I'm still unsure if I add some drums in this melodic section of the preview - but I feel that this part without drums and with lots of melodic synths and VSTIs instead has its own charme somehow.
  9. As far as I'm not ready with the track yet I still wanted to show ya a small preview of the coming version. The track is already completely overworked compared to the last version (1.5) and this preview contains a little deep melodious break apart from the heavy rock/metal tunes within the rest of the track that will go something over 7 minutes. I'm still working on this part as well - but tell me how you like the rough conception of the calm break (before it will go in the heavy final part with the battle against Daos afterwards).

    SoundCloud or YouTube?

    I prefer Youtube because of the better audio streaming quality (audio streaming bitrate of 128 kbit/s at Soundcloud vs 192 kbit/s at Youtube can make a noticeable difference in sound quality) and the possibility of underlining the audio material with some fitting video material (own gameplay scenes of video games for video game remixes, for example).

    April Fool's Gold

    Haha, Americans can't get surprised that easily. They're already used to false flag attacks. ;D
  12. C 'mon, guys - really nobody any kind of an idea? Maybe some further informations about my loudness metering unit and why I guess that method 2) is the right one. If I would start to messure the loudness right within a track for example it would show me a pretty higher max. loudness than if I messure the loudness of a track or another audio program right from the beginning to the end. And that's why I guess that I have to messure the loudness of a whole CD right from the beginning to the end, too. But I'm not quite sure if there might be another measuring technique for CD loudness mastering as well.
  13. I've got a question concerning the right use of the loudness metering unit in my DAW (Samplitude Pro X3 Suite) for CD mastering. All soundtracks for my CD are already loaded into the music project file on track 1 one after another. The loudness ratio between all tracks is already set via object volume editing (couldn't build just on loudness metering there - had to do this by ear because of different music genres and different dynamic ranges of the soundtracks). And now I want to bring the loudest part of this CD mix at around - 23 dB. For this purpose do I have to: 1) ...check the loudness metering for each track anew from each track start to rise or lower the volume of all tracks together until the loudest part of the loudest track reaches -23 dB? or 2) ... let the loudness metering do its job by playing the whole CD (all soundtracks in a row) without pausing while checking the loudest part, memorize the highest loudness and rise or lower the volume of all tracks together until the loudest point of the whole CD loudness metering is set at -23 dB? It's really strange that it can make differences up to 2 dB of loudness in LUFS between these 2 methods. At method 2) the loudness differences according to the loudness metering unit seem to get smaller and nearly stable/unchanged after the first few tracks. If you meter each soundtrack track just from the beginning (method 1)) the loudness differences according to the loudness metering unit are much bigger and the loudness metering seems to react much more sensitive. Although I'm pretty sure method 2) is the right one for mastering the loudness of a CD I want to ask the OCRemix community about this phenomenon and the correct use of the loudness metering for this purpose.
  14. Hm, thx for the hint. They must have changed it recently - some time before it was 320kbit/s and some time before this you could upload and stream wave data content... with a free account. But seems to be a general problem in the last years of western capitalism. Lots of those halfhearted businessmen and private investors obviously try to buy up good content platforms (like formerly free music platforms, mail providers etc.) and want to drag max. profits outta this and every poop that accidentally sniffs its first fresh air... from the "Fresh Air Company". So, I guess one of the best free audiovisual content platforms that doesn't change its essential rules for a very long time is still Youtube. There seems to be still a good audio bitrate of about 192 kbit/s, you can implement (for example) gameplay videos into your musical videogame remix content and its always nice to get some feedback there (compared to simpler, more unknown and now pretty expensive platforms like Clyp).
