  1. A piece I threw together and recorded at my house, I'm just looking for feedback on the composition more than the recording standards itself, But pointers on how to record are well taken as I don't really do Mixes. It was recorded in audacity too make it that much more disgusting. But thank you to everyone who listens too this, it's probably the first video game thing I have recorded properly in a while, and yes All parts bar the drums are real instruments, recorded one over the other.



  2. At 0:03, for example, the bass climbs with the melody, where in the source the bass actually drops in half-step against the melody. It's your track, and it's always up to you what to keep and what to change, but in this case the change makes the track sound boring in comparison to the original, which because of that small detail sounded very interesting. There's a lot of detail like this that's simply missing in this that made the original so damn interesting - take a look at that source again and really take an analytic ear to it and listen to it critically - you might find a whole lot that you want to incorporate

    Thank you so much for pointing this out, Gave it a relisten and am currently editing the bass track, And realized the bass did sound silly on my part.

  3. Thank you to everyone for the advice, I am currently working on making this alot better.

    And as a reply to the constructive Criticism:

    The Reason I posted this was not to show people a song, it was to let other (More Experienced) People take a look and to tell me what they all think.(So In Actuality, Cast all your ultima's Guys, It will only tell me what I need to improve!)

    And thanks to you guys who have already pointed me into the right directions, as I said, I'm still working on this and I have almost no experience in making things of a good quality on a computer, So looking up alot of the things you guys have pointed me to has really helped.


  4. Yeah I plan on recording a real guitar track (Lead and rhythm) and maybe bass track for the finished version, this is just a "This is what it will be like" Work in progress.

    The drums on the other hand, I don't own a set, so I'm looking through all the links Hakstock Sent me, Hoping that the end product will sound as close to perfect as I can make it.

    as for the Bell Synth sound which is just default HX-7 EP FG on Harmless, I hope to make a better sounding synth based off the sound itself.

  5. I think it's around 5 minutes in, But it sounds like every instrument is trying to Solo, Took a few for my head to be able to listen to it all (Sounds good), and I think it could do with a different last note from the bass, But that's personal opinion. :P

    But I think theres totally a good amount of sax in this, The Instruments complement each other quite well, it's got a nice catchy beat to it and I think It's a Very Nice, Chilled and confusing to read the title of, Not my particular cup of tea but Nice work. :)

  6. Hey Everybody!

    I am Steve, I've had Controllers and Gameboys in my hands pretty much since I was able to pick things up. I've been playing Guitar from about the age of 13, And It's Been Six years since I first picked up a Guitar.

    Anyway, My love for Video game soundtracks Originally stemmed from Junichi Masuda And Nobou Uematsu, From There I started Listening very closely to every game I played.

    But now I've Moved onto covering (In mostly Rock or Power Metal) Video Game songs. I only really have access to fruityloops, Live recordings are troublesome due to lack of equipment, But I look forward to Being Part of the OCR community!
