    Not entirely sure I’m allowed to do this, but I wanted to thank everyone for all your advise and help with the track! It probably wouldn’t have passed the panel without it. I look forward to submitting more in the future!

    @mothershipl I never have a problem with someone posting my music on their Youtube or Soundcloud, as long as proper credit is given, so by all means! @Uffe von Lauterbach Thanks! @Gario I could have sworn Sir_Nutz did a psytrance remix on this site...

    FINAL UPDATE: So, did some more mastering and sent it off to the judges. Hopefully they like it. The above link is the one I sent them, so you can hear the same thing they'll be judging.

    The stuff that comes with FL Studio, like the Fruity EQ, Multiband Compressor, Limiter, etc.

    UPDATE: I think this is it! This sounds ready to me. If no further objections are brought up, I'm going to submit this.

    Good idea. I may have to bring something in, though, when the energy starts coming back. It's like every time I go to mix or master, I end up adding or changing it lol. For example, @TurboChaser and @Gario mentioned there wasn't enough source. Well, I agree, and I'll be fixing that.

    UPDATE: Alright, so I gave it another go with mixing, trying to clean it up as much as possible. I'll master tomorrow after I let my ears rest, but I figured I'll show you what I did so far.

    UPDATE: (Hopefully) The final, fully mastered version. I added a lot of goodies in hope that it fills in the boring parts and make it more "psytrancy". I think it's ready for submission. Let me know. EDIT: So after doing a few "car test" runs on other speakers, I feel this could use a smidge more mastering. I'll update this post after I work on it some more.

    Skies of Arcadia OC ReMix Project Album - "Arcadia Legends"

    Alright. Some of you guys have already been contacted by me already, and I plan on hitting the rest of you up in due time. I think it's time to post on the thread itself. (Well, again, at any rate) Right now I'm in the process of mastering the final tracks. There are a few that may need remixing (heh) at the instrument level, but for the most part, a normal song mastering will be fine. So, please contact me if you have any concerns about your track for the mastering process. Also, for those in need of other sound engineering services, I'll be happy to help.

    I'm not saying you're wrong or even that you don't make a good point. The disappointment is more like a "yeah, he's probably right. Darn..." kind of thing.

    Wow, thanks for the amazing eval! I've been throwing around the idea of changing the ending. I initially wanted to end it with somewhat of a climax followed by a rather abrupt outro, but it makes the ending seem TOO adrupt. I'm kind of disappointed that you didn't like the breakdown (well, the length if it, anyway)... I'll see if I can trim it or something without detracting from what I was trying to do with it. Something like adding arps. I plan on doing a final master before I submit this. I'll add the timestamp source thing you mentioned. I'll probably post one more update before I send it off. Thanks again for the eval!

    Skies of Arcadia OC ReMix Project Album - "Arcadia Legends"

    I've sent @Darkflamewolf a PM already, but I figure I'll post here too. My childhood! I wish I discovered OCRemix much sooner, and joined this project near the beginning... So, I like to think myself somewhat knowledgable in the art of mastering and audio production. Went to school and everything. So, I'd be interested in joining as a sound director, masterer, etc. Also, I know a little about sound engineering, so I may be able to help those who find their sample quality a little lacking. Well, that's my pitch. If I'm something you guys might be looking for, I'd love the opportunity to join. I wouldn't mind claiming something too, if you guys wouldn't mind a very late entry.
  13. Alright, my turn. Not a bad start, but man, some of those chords in the intro very nearly turned me off. See if you can get closer to the original chords if you need to. Now, for the things you asked The Damned that I may be able to help you with. The drums: You can make real sounding drums using white noise. It's all about how you EQ and mix it. This site has been my holy grail for EQing, and there are many others like it out there. If a particular drum isn't quite working for you, add another on top of it to achieve the sound you're looking for. May I also add that drums are nice, but are only half the equation. You need bass, drums or not. There's something of a tenor in your song in the form of a cello, but you need bass. Every ensemble and genre of musical instrument has a bass instrument (tuba, contrabass, bass flute, etc.) for a reason: it acts like a foundation for your music to sit on. I've heard songs without bass, and I got to tell you, they may work, but they're empty. To the other thing you asked The Damned: No to the increasing flute volume. Fade out the other instruments just enough to make the flute stand out, but not overpowering. If given a choice, decrease, not increase. Well, I mean if you start off soft, yeah, but if you're going from forte to piano, ensemble to solo, don't increase.
  14. Despite the fact that I absolutely loathe sidechained pads in EDM, you've actually made me put that bias on hold for your mix. I'll definitely add this to my vg remix playlist. God, I hate sidechained pads...

    Large Jazz ensemble video game composition

    Very relaxing. So, what exactly is the scenario for this piece? I ask because you labeled it a "video game" composition, and usually a VG song is written to create a specific mood and atmosphere for a scenario in a game. The only thing I can think of is a cutscene where an old school detective goes to the casino.
