  1. The pressure of working on a track from your favorite composer ever ! Couldn't figure out a good way to harmonize the vocals and my lack of knowledge regarding how to write for an orchestra make the string and choir parts perfectible. This, plus other stuff here and there, will hopefully be fixed when I'll start recording everything with more talented and knowledgeable comrades. All of which makes your feedback and advice more than is welcome to produce a cover worthy of this fantastic and obscure song. Original: Remix:
  2. I might already have some interesting stuff cooking right now which could definitely fit for this project...
  3. A virtual instrument included in MixCraft -- it gets the job done until I record a real one I used a VST called Alter/Ego by Plogue -- it's pretty easy to use and, once again, gets the job done You just type your lyrics and select a voice bank -- I usually go with Bones Basic -- and there you go ! Thanks ! I'll do my best to produce the best piece I possibly can !
  4. This remix came to me out of nowhere ! I kinda like it, but I don't know if I shouldn't try to transpose the piece in another style... Original: Remix: What do you guys think ?
  5. I'm so bad at creating a topic and putting it in the right topic -- sorry if I messed up one more time :3 For all of you, Tomb Raider enthusiasts, Peter Connelly is starting a Kickstarter ! The goal ? Remaster, re-orchestrate and re-release the soundtracks of the games he worked on for all the fans of Lara Croft who are willing to give him a little help with his campaign ! Let's make this happen !
  6. Someone already told me about that problem -- I will fix this as I'm recording the instruments This "instrumental version" is pretty much 100% original -- only when I'll add in the vocals will we be able to notice it's a remix of the source ^.^ Thanks for the advice !
  7. Though it was meant to be sung by the fairy in the Playstation game, I always picture Sonia singing this lullaby to young Trevor at the end of" Legends" ! I also thought arranging the piece in the same style as A2's "Chosen One" might be a good idea -- tell me if it is Original: Remix (Instrumental): Feedback is welcome !
  8. I desperately need more "Resident Evil" remixes... or an official OCR Album -- a man can only dream But for now, I want to see how far I can go with this piece of my own. Inspired by Tony MacAlpine's "Tears of Sahara", I'd like to see if I can come up with a sweet rock ballad version of "Sleeping Beauty", which I fell in love with. Original: Remix: I need to reach some friends of mine in order to help me record the final version. In the meantime, feedback is very welcome
  9. The structure is definitely here as well as 90% of the arrangement. Problem is it's a Synth Wave track -- which usually gets boring very fast. Change the Drum Kit for a punchier one and add fills at the end of each section to built interesting transition -- perhaps changing the beat for some sections would be nice instead of constantly playing the same or simply having none at all. A cheap but effective way to make the piece more interesting would be to use various FXs and samples -- Sweep for transitions, Lo-Fi/Hi-Fi (Funk Fiction Style) -- or more voice clip -- Hideki Naganuma Style. Check FL's sample library -- you'll find more stuff that you actually need there -- and fill you soundbank with Star Fox voice clips and have fun. Don't forget such classics as Side-chain, Delay and Reverb and don't fear exploring different ways to make good use of Pans. You might tell me you already did some of this but I think it's till too shy. Then again, I'm not an expert of Synth Wave -- though I like listening to some of it. I'd recommend you take a listen to Meteor's Parallel Lives album where you'll surely more accurate stuff to learn from that what I wrote here. As I previously wrote somewhere -- it has the potential to be a very good mix (I personally think this new ending with the Saw Synth is golden). Keep it up and make it happen !
  10. Is it this one ? Want me to give you a quick review while waiting for the boss to return ?
  11. "It's quiet... too quiet!" Seriously, how's the project going ? Any new WIPs ? And what about that DRAMA thing ?
  12. Bein' listening to a couple of your "Sonic Mania" stuff recently and I really like the work on these. Your "Hard-Boiled Heavies" one especially caught my attention -- great lyrics and voice production there. Any plans of doing the "Press Garden Zone: Act 2 - 'Blossom Haze'" ?
  13. Well, that's what I call an original take on the source -- it definitely stands out among all the other remixes I heard of this track. Take in consideration what my comrades previously mentioned and you'll have a killer piece of music !
  14. Another day, another WIP, another song (to become) ^^ This is a heavily arranged version of the Staff Roll BGM from "Wild Guns". I'm not gonna lie -- this is clearly inspired by W.A.S.P. and their original masterpiece "Wild Child" as well as its Battle Beast version. There's also a bit of Toshiharu Yamanishi and Hyakutarou Tsukumo influence in there too for all you "Thunder Force" fans Currently in the recording/polishing state but I guess I might also take in consideration some feedback already before it's too late to change anything. Original: Remix: Enjoy and comment
  15. Another great podcast and interesting interview of a legendary composer ! Just keep those coming, they're awesome !
