  1. what a surprising take on this song, very interesting. It really works as a prog-metal song. It's odd that there aren't more prog rock fans in OCR considering how much influence prog has on video game music.
  2. Flawless playing & mixing, and an arrangement that makes me like one of the few FF6 songs I never liked. I salute you, who keep the OC Metal alive! The drums sound amazing in particular, if I'm reading the post right it's a real drummer on a real drumset, and you can tell. You don't get that "fake" drum sound you hear on so many bedroom producers' output.
  3. If you want to hear more of this type of stuff (I do a lot of piano and rock/metal stuff) feel free to subscribe to my youtue channel by clicking this link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCE0swoFG1-iBP7QRGbeHsgg?sub_confirmation=1 i already subbed to yours. thanks for the feedback! it's funny, most people just say "I like it." You have to talk to someone who makes music seriously to get real feedback. haha. yeah my best instrument is piano. it's a great instrument to learn composition and theory on because you can very easily change chords and see how the chords interplay with the m
  4. nice. i saw them live here and one of the best shows i've ever seen. it's stupid that their music is so hard yet they can play it perfectly live. especially the drums. jesus.
  5. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nuItul-D0PA used this as a pro melodic metal reference track to compare. you can hear how "uncompressed" or "free" the drums sound and how they are as loud as the guitars in the mix, the guitars "fit in" with the drums volume wise. compare that to yours and let me know what you think in reply to your previous post, i think you are doing alright. just be careful to be able to hear every instrument equally (or equal to its importance) in the mix. as guitarist we always want our guitar sound to be loud and ballsy but at the same time a track with w
  6. the guitar playing is pretty solid, way better than mine lol. i would say going forward in your practice focus on the phrasing & getting emotion out of the parts and sounding as clean as possible, you are at the level where what you have left are tweaks. i'm on laptop speakers right now so... keep that in mind: the guitar tone is pretty good. i wonder if you would benefit from a bit of room reverb on the rhythm guitars. they sound a bit dry. obviously you have to be careful with that since it's metal riffing but a little might not hurt. it sounds like the guitars are on top
  7. i keep fighting on the veldt but i can never seem to get your Piano ability. dammit!!! screw the playing, just listen to how on time all 4 parts are. that is MUCH HARDER than it seems and you are playing crazy technical stuff. this is tight. forget that, this is amazing. i aspire to be amazing, but you actually are. thanks for sharing and inspiring! you got a hard sub on this one buddy uematsu would be proud ps put out an album of this and it'd sell. Kiara Comparetto is doing one and it's not even her own arrangements. Love her to death don't get me wrong, just s
  8. as someone who repeatedly tries to get into EDM but can only stand Boards of Canada, I like this. I think the drum timbre is fine but the drums need to be louder so you really feel them. Maybe 1-2 db louder. either that or some eq. i want to feel the bass of the kick. i want the snare to punch me more and i want those hi hats to be brighter or more audible. i'm pretty sure it's just an overall volume issue but if that doesn't work or feels too "Loud" mix wise then try eq'ing some 50 into the kick, 200 into the snare and 10hz shelf into the hi hats. i'm sure if you listen to 808 state o
  9. Did you buy this thing or get it from somewhere? Looks like it. If you made the music box or mp3 yourself, then you are a boss. But cool sharing...I would kill to have one of these. It sounds amazing in real life. I would absolutely not add another instrument, that's not how music box songs work lol
  10. I saw mass effect then i saw post rock. Shepard sez "I'M GOING IN!!!" this is cool, the guitar timbre reminds me of Tears Run Rings guitar playing is very nice, which i was that good nice heavy part, wasn't expecting metal in my shoegaze drums sound nice, maybe a bit too simple, but this is post rock...some of the fills sound a bit weak velocity wise, like a real drummer would normally play louder on fills but your programming seems to have the fills be quieter in a lot of places. i think the fact that it's obviously programmed takes a bit out, in terms of velocity, when i
  11. Hi peeps This is a completed arrangement of 3 songs from Lufia and the Fortress of Doom, completely reharmonized and partwritten by hand over 6-7 months, to fit the theme of "Deliverance" from pain. Also a nod to the fact that these are "Door of Journey", "Departures" and,"To A New World". It is a sad but also hopeful tune. Yes, life is tough, but it can get better, and we can find small victories in the immense shadows. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGUb_K-Uac4&feature=youtu.be If you like please subscribe to my youtube channel as I'll be posting more remixes, m
  12. This here's an arrangement of, I think, "Four Mad Gods" from Lufia. Did it a couple years ago and remixed it this week.
  13. thanks for sharing. the parts need more velocity variation, especially the guitar part that sticks out at the beginning. it doesn't sound real without that. the cymbals i feel are a little too loud. i like the flute part/sample.
