  1. Don' mind me. I'll just sneak in at the last minute.
  2. Serious response: Like this MNP round
  3. Yep, that's Launch Octopus. Hoping more people submit, though.
  4. Some key things that need attention: 0:00 - 2:00; The piano is very dry and lacking humanization here, particularly when the staccato starts around 0:23. I can sort of get what sound you were going for here, but when a pianist plays the keys in such a heavy handed way there are still some notable differences between each note. I'd suggest making use of the pedal here(and in slower sections in general) along with a softer velocity to help with the transition into the staccato portion of this section. 2:00 - 4:00; There's a notable shift in the tone of the piano starting here, which m
  5. Thanks! I put a lot of work into this track, and I'm glad it paid off. I was trying to maintain a similar mood to the original while still being different, so that's good to hear.
  6. Biggest issue with the Godzilla MIDI is was that it's at an astounding 12 BPM. Since it was written at 12 BPM to sound like 160ish BPM it's understandable hard to work with and must have been painful to sequence. Anyways, I might do something for this round, considering how long it lasts,
  7. This arrangement was originally made a couple years ago for an album, but due to life I was unable to work finish it(or do much related to music for a while). I've finally found the time to get back into music, and I'd almost forgotten about this. I've polished it up a bit, but for the most part I consider it finished. Original:
  8. I feel like it could work if you either added some high hat open/close fills. Alternatively, you could bring in some marching-styled percussion towards the end as you build up towards another heavy section.
  9. Just a simple piano arrangement of Dart's Theme. The title is clearly a bad pun based on the name of one of his Additions(Madness Hero). Yes, I feel bad. No, I don't regret it. Enjoy. Feedback is appreciated, as I think I may submit this at some point. Original:
  10. @Flurry of Flames Indeed, I didn't have enough time to really work on it and get all my ideas into place. As for the plugins, it's quite a list. The strings and woodwinds are Rhapsody Orchestral Colors, while the percussion(including the glockenspiel and xylophone) is Rhapsody Orchestral Percussion. The horns are all from Bravura Scoring brass, and the piano is Pearl Grand Piano. All of those are from Impact Soundworks. The solo trumpet is Chapman Trumpet by Embertone, and the flute is Passion Flute by Orange Tree Samples.
  11. I originally did this for a PRC compo and I've been touching it up a bit since then. It's still somewhat short and a bit on the conservative side, but I figured I'd drop it here. Comments and critique are welcome and appreciated.
  12. Having not heard the original version since you originally posted it it's hard to draw direct comparisons, but many of the prior issues still remain. I still believe it's far too long. Right now you're still recycling the same segments over and over with very little variation, outside of instrument swaps. The brief flute solo at 4:42 was a nice change, and following it up with those piano variations was great, but you quickly went back into the same cut-and-paste segments, just with different instruments. I don't have a ton of time to go over everything, but I'll outline a few specific points:
  13. No problem. I, too, have seen some "different" variations. Things like "Stay in that fire, lady, get your back torn"(Instead of "So dare violate and get your back torn", which is what it does say) or "So violate an express-mic wave" which doesn't even make any sense. The official lyrics - particularly the rap portions - are pretty hard to track down, but I got them as close as I could get.
  14. Just a little something I'd originally put together for MNP79 and have been working on lately, though I'm unsure where I'll go with it from here. I intended for it to be a somewhat conservative reimagining of the theme - perhaps something closer to a movie trailer - rather than a full-fledged remix Enjoy!
  15. I'm known to post here on occasion. The guitar was nothing special, it's just Shreddage 1 with a couple tweaked ReValver 4 amp modules and some EQing
  16. Just another cover of that song from Season 2, Episode 2. This started as sort of a joke for a Rick and Morty-loving roomie and only covered the first half(what was originally in the episode), but I ended up doing the whole thing for both fun and a bit of practice. It's a (mostly) instrumental cover, but I may get an actual vocalist to sing at some point. Feedback/Comments/Critique/Etc appreciated.
  17. @Chris ~ Amaterasu Yep, as prophetik mentioned I am, in fact, looking for a violinist to record a solo segment. If you're interested, drop me a PM.
  18. Still working on mine! I got a bit delayed by a sudden snowstorm(because Oregon never gets those) but I'm back home and back at work now.
  19. Yes. You have to have all of the parts present when you extract the rar.part1 file. Extracting rar.part1 will also extract rar.part2 and so forth along with it, so if you don't have all the parts you'll have incomplete files and such and it probably won't load properly.
  20. I was trying out a few different chord progressions. I ended up with a Bm, DM, Em9, F#m progression(throwing in some 7ths and 11ths later on for good measure) that I really liked, and this is what happened. It's a pretty simple song. Two different rhythm guitar parts with a lead, and sequenced bass guitar and drums. Feedback is welcome and appreciated!
  21. Kontakt 5 is $199.50 right now. 50% off and a pretty damn good deal if you don't have it yet. Ends in 8 days, so get it while you can.
