  1. Thanks for the kind words! I see what you mean about the sync in some instruments. I try to keep editing to the minimum when making this covers, as I play all instruments live and I want to preserve that semblance of "live" performance, but that one moment you mentioned is perfectly understandable, it does stick out! Thank you for the critique and the good faith, will try to be more careful with my timing next time! I'd like to submit something for revision to OC remixes sometime soon, thanks!
  2. Hey guys! I tried to make something different this time, a bit more oriented towards the content of the game, trying to emphasize the cultural origins of each faction in Fire Emblems Fate
  3. Thanks dude! Will take note of the drum mixing suggestion. Glad you liked it!
  4. Another week, another cover! I'd like to hear about Mario songs in this community, Tell me your favorite Mario related songs =)
  5. Hi guys! Here's another cover of a Street Fighter song near and dear to my heart. Please do leave comments and suggestions regarding the arrangement and mixing, i really appreciate those!
  6. Hey again guys! To celebrate that Urien is almost in Street Fighter V, i made a remix using his SFIII stage themes. I hope you enjoy! If you want, like the video and suscribe, that would really mean a lot to me and would enable me to continue this journey =)
  7. I really like the original song, and this version is pretty hype! My only criticism would fall upon the quieter parts of the remix, I think your transitions tune down the vibe you were carrying before a bit too much, since your dance-ish parts are really nice and energetic, the change is a bit drastic - personally, i would've gone crazy with automations and a bit more bass in those parts. The previous comment carries on to the introductory part of the song - i think that sinewave/ lead synth and plucked synths choice might come across as a bit harsh since it has a lot of hardcore harmonics in it. In my speakers and headphones, it was just a bit strident. I could've donde with your piano choice, it was really tasteful and a lead melody on that sound would've been nice (In 2:30 or so, you do the piano lead and it's pretty nice!) Overall it's pretty nice! Keep up the good work
  8. Hey dude! I think this sounds banging for the most! I like your instrumentation and your automation ideas. Personally, i could use a bit less vocals in the beginning, and i think a different chord progression somewhere would make this track a bit more fun! another harmony to distract them ears a bit =) On the mixing side, i have a sub and the bass felt pretty clean, but a bit lacking. Might want to try getting just a little more agressive on the bass/kick side. Listen to the original, it has beast bass freqs that make that breakbeat really pop. Again, this is nice! Keep it up.
  9. Hey man! I think the arrangement is pretty solid, but as said before, i think this mix lacks a bit of presence. I've read a bit of the other comments in this thread, and i think your problem might have been while recording. If you don't have enough headroom to add gain without clipping, you need to look back at your recording levels - i try to aim for -12-15 dB recording levels on most DAWs, giving you plenty of room for gain staging, compression and EQ. If you feel your guitars are too sharp and might cut off your head, i'd normally make cuts around 4Khz and manage that box-like sound with cuts on 300 and 200 hz You could also benefit from focusing on mastering, too. Leave your master levels on your mix around -3 and -6 dB, and then export a WAV and compare it on a new project against mixes from the same genre you like. Then, you can adjust your general gain levels and EQ using these as direct reference! Keep up the good work. StudioOne is a solid tool, and you can only get better if you work hard :)!
  10. Sounds pretty good to me, man! I love the original piece and this one fits the bill pretty well! Pretty Future-Funkish, as you said. Also, i think your mix is pretty clean and your rhythmic choices are adequate for the genre. Keep it up
  11. Hi guys! Still learning how to tackle the VGM remix world. Here's my third consecutive remix for this month! Hope you like it
  12. Thanks for the kind words and constructive criticism, guys! I've rechecked my mix a couple of times and it's true, it could use a bit tuning down regarding levels here and there, so instruments are more defined. Probably solved with automation, i think. About slapping technique, and thank you for the compliment, I've found a couple of things! - 1) For me, playing Slap bass starts with a wholesome motion using the foream and the wrist, you should be bouncing, try and think about a kick drum pedal ; 2) I'd recommend for you not to limit your slaps to the thicker strings, practice single thumb slapping on each string, focus on the percussive nature of the technique - again, bounce! Think of slap as a whole different way of using your right hand, just when you were learning how to pluck/pick ; 3) When it comes to tone, try and be careful with mids, they could make your slap sound to harsh, but specially when it comes to popping, a mid to high action has worked the best for me ; 4) Listen to great slapping and notice the use of ghost notes and open string passing notes - Larry Graham, Marcus Miller, Stanley Clarke and Victor Wooten emphasize the attack of their progressions with interesting choices of licks that will mingle 7ths, Octaves and chromatic passages. Also, when mixing slap bass, fast compressors are your friends. Transient designers are great to bring out the pop out of slap too. Hope this helped a bit!
  13. Thanks, Rozovian Point taken with the tone, it might come across as thin. Might benefit from doing layering and tinkering with the EQ. Still trying to learn the best way to deal with guitars in a remix too!
  14. Hello guys! This is my second attempt at making a game remix. I love this game. I hope you enjoy this remix! - There are details on how it was made in the Youtube description, i know i didn't change the song a whole lot, but i really enjoy its original form and wanted to thrown in some different instruments.
  15. Hi guys! This is my first attempt at remixing/arranging a VGM song - I did this for InsaneInTheRainMusic's challenge, and i just wanted to share this with this wonderful community that has provided me with insight and inspiration (as a lurker) for a long time now. Below, you can find the YouTube Video of the performance. Tutankoopa!
