  1. Guess who’s back... Right after the release of Arcadia Legends, I’m at it again. ^_^; Although, this time I get a track all to myself (not that I wasn’t given an opportunity in Arcadia Legends, I just didn’t have the time when it was offered). I’m looking forward to how a psytrance take on Felix’s Battle theme is going to come out. This is going to be fun!

    OCRA-0069 - Arcadia Legends

    I guess it’s my turn hahaha. Well, for those that know me, they know how hard it is to please me musically. It’s not an issue of “my style of music” or anything, but rather how a track resonates with me. That being said, it’s really hard to pick favorites, especially from each disc, as each resonates with me at different aspects and different reasons. It’s like having a favorite child. Disc 1 Naturally one would think I’d pick the track I had a hand in (On Wings of Feathers), but there is one track that stands out stronger. That would have to be @pu_freak‘s track, The Voyage Begins. The composition in this track continues to send chills up my back every time I listen to it. Disc 2 I’m going to go with @Jason Covenant‘s track Coding Angel. The lyrics and the composition here is amazing, and turned a song I didn’t care for much in the original ost into a song I thoroughly enjoy listening to. Disc 3 This might actually shock some of you, but my favorite on this disc is actually @Glejs‘s track Unknown Menace. This style of trance was my whole childhood, and combined with the game that was my whole childhood resulted in contender for one of my most favorite songs, not just with the album, but period. Artist Even though none of his songs ended up on the above list, I felt the need to make a special category for my favorite artist just because pretty much all his tracks on this album are such a joy to listen to. That would be Mr. @Deedubs. Amazing artist, great person to work with, I know some day he’ll make it big. Anyway, as I said before, it wasn’t easy picking favorites, and for everyone else, know that I admire the work you guys put into your tracks. To @Darkflamewolf and @Modus, thank you guys so much for letting me be a part of this!

    I know I joined late to the party (like, really late), but I just wanted to express how amazing everyone has been and amazing the music is. I really hope I’m doing all the talent involved with the project justice with my mastering. I can’t wait for the release of the album, as I believe that not only will this be an amazing gift for Skies of Arcadia fans, but for everyone as a whole! Thanks @Darkflamewolf and @Modus for allowing me to be a part of this!

    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: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1XOs1iFAoqR0DeZNrcUoSSCw034gCFDta 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: https://drive.google.com/file/d/16FKnvtGPzqLdfh2TT6qyUOU8T1c6sMF1/view?usp=drivesdk 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: https://drive.google.com/file/d/180cBVOCLkaOG9KiD7dAyIOWSfxTOjoJ3/view?usp=drivesdk 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: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_lVEEJimImEZieLtW_kv7oKD7rjkpujs/view?usp=sharing (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.

    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!

    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.
