  1. Thanks! Yeah I decided to got for a more dynamic mix, I think I was taking about 3dB off on both the master compression and limiter. I was originally compressing it a fair bit more, both in mix and master, but I felt it was too squashed and pulled it back.
  2. I have been itching to work on another arrangement for what feels like an eternity, thankfully now that I'm finishing up with Uni I've finally had the time! Here's an orchestral arrangement of the opening music to Undertale; Once Upon a Time. The samples used are predominately from Spitfire's BBCSO, as well as Heavyocity's Forzo for brass, VI Labs Ravenscroft 275 Piano, Spitfire LABS music box, and for percussion I used a mix of Albion One and HZ Percussion. I'd love to know what you think and of course any critique is always welcome
  3. Sounds fabulous! A really unique take on probably my favorite Zelda track Are the vocals around the 1:10 mark sampled or recorded?
  4. Hey guys! Here's the most recent orchestration I've just uploaded of the main theme from 'The Legend of Zelda'. I absolutely love this music by Koji Kondo which, in my opinion, is one of the most iconic themes in the history of the gaming industry. Hope you enjoy! ~Jfa
  5. Hey guys, just finished another Pokemon arrangement, this time of the Gym leader/Elite 4 battle music. I hope you enjoy and any critique is always hugely helpful!
  6. That's interesting with regard to the cymbals. It is in fact different samples for each hit but maybe I could have exaggerated it with the velocity control. Lol, I didn't clock the spelling mistake xD
  7. Yeah, listening back I would agree. I'll need to make the melody lines much clearer in my future mixes. Thanks!
  8. Hey everyone! This is my most recent arrangement I have just finished of Pokemon GSC/HGSS's SS Aqua theme. This is one of my favourites from Johto and it was really fun doing this one. I hope you enjoy, and any critique you might have, I'd love to hear it!
  9. Hey guys! Here's my most recent arrangement of the Viridian Forest theme from Pokemon Red and Blue. I took quite a lot of liberties with this track and I'm curious to see what you think. Here's a link to the origional: Remix:
  10. Hey guys, this is my most recent arrangement that I have just uploaded of 'Mall Rat' from the original 'The Sims', released in February 2000. This is my favourite of the tracks from the game and it was a treat to work with. I hope you enjoy and any feedback is greatly appreciated!!!
  11. Thanks for taking the time to write up some feedback for me, really appreciated. This was probably the hardest track I've had to transcribe so far. Being a classical cellist and not a jazz musician, there were a few places where I was so nearly there with rythms but just a wee tad off, especially in some of the piano parts. I've found working on this track incredibly helpful though, my brother studies a lot of jazz and was able to clear up some of the confusion for me too. Also, me personally, I don't mind the word 'critique', but it just depends on the context, like most words I guess
  12. I was meaning to post this here earlier but didn't get round to it. Anyway, here's my arrangement of the snowy Route 216 from Pokemon Diamond and Pearl. I hope you enjoy and any critique is always incredibly helpful
  13. Thank you, that is really helpful feedback! Yeah, it's weird how some of my brass samples sound late, it's not just the muted brass samples, there's a few other ones that are the same. I'll take another look at it and see if there is anything I can do to fix it, I may need to just make the brass a micro second earlier. As for the Flute at 2:05, I'll test out other patches and see if something fits better Yeah, in the middle section the brass completely overpower the woodwind, I'll fix the levels to make them a bit more prominent, or at least so that you can hear them Haha, the piccolo is like marmite, you either love it or hate it... my brother can't stand the instrument And thanks for pointing out the tiny pop at 3:54, that is something that definitely needs fixing
  14. So this is a piece I've written for a game I'm currently scoring for. I decided to title it 'New Horizons' in honour of the recent mission to Pluto, which also ties into one of the game's themes, Space. https://soundcloud.com/john-ferrie-2/new-horizons I hope you enjoy, and any critique is greatly appreciated!
  15. It's a really interesting concept, even if I don't get involved myself I am looking forward to hearing the end results
