  1. YES SIR *salutes* Finals are this week so... I'll see if I can end up squeezing in a remix, because this source is bonkers cool
  2. This source is a real booger to analyze in any meaningful way! Cool beans!
  3. More like Bread 'n Butter compo amirite? I might actually try to make a submission this time. Usually I don't feel like the meat 'n potatoes style is my thing, but I have a different feeling about this source.
  4. Oh. I think I didn't communicate very well when I was talking about the clean guitar part. I think it is awesome and works well as a brief moment of peace, I don't think you should extend the clean guitar part. I was suggesting that the form of the song allow that brief moment of peace to happen a second time at some completely different time in the song, because I thought that the section worked really well and it could be effective in other parts of the song too. That's just me tho. Most importantly A better version of this might be "2:51 is so sick that I
  5. @Furorezu I hear you! I have the same issue constantly. It only barely makes any sense to me. The best thing you can do to mix is to use references. Pick a kinda similar song, even if it is a different genre. The subtleties will stand out more and you can use your knowledge on how compression and EQ works and even just moving your faders to make the mix sound similar. If it were me I'd look at this song as a reference (don't be afraid to use more. Three songs similar to yours but different from eachother that you like the sound of is a pretty thorough way to do it)
  6. I don't feel right for voting for some of these options in the poll but still like them, so I'll just add my two cents. I like the current state of choosing a single source and having it remixed, but I also like the ideas of choosing a game to remix and choosing songs from the request forum. Maybe rounds should alternate between those source selection methods somehow; maybe for round 338 bundeslang chooses a game to remix, the single source for 339 is decided by the winner of 337, the game source for 400 is decided by the winner of 338 etc.. Maybe work the request forum into that formula,
  7. Sorry it's taken a while I think the composition is pretty great, though it took a while for me to discern how all of it was related to the source; some of it just sounded like geetar wanking, like the section at 0:33, but now I definitely see how it is related to the source; you accent the notes from the source, and I think it's pretty clever to embellish it like that, though you might also want to find a way to make it more immediately obvious. One thing that bugs me about the arrangement is the "riff" (the one that is first introduced in 0:23). There is nothing wrong with the riff inhere
  8. I want to comment on this but I'm not too familiar with the source. Is this it?
  9. I like the arrangement! The choice of chords is pretty cool, and I like the variations on the melody at :40; this "B" second section at :40 is a pretty good example of how you can make something different from the original while still keeping the resemblance, love it. Even though I like the chords, I feel like they may be clashing with the melody and bass. Do you have a list of the harmonies (or the notes in each chord) you are using? I might be able to better explain what I mean when presented with that. While the structure of the remix Intro, A, B is good, it is a little lacking in
  10. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/34087043/Dance of Decision.mp3 This is an NES (2A03 no DPCM) arrangement of "Corpse Voyage ~ Be of good cheer!" from Touhou 11 - Subterranean Animism. Original: (This video loops the track twice + a fadeout. 1:40 is where the track loops, so you don't have to listen to the whole thing to hear the source fully) I already submitted this to the judges, but in the future I'll probably post tracks here first since this seems like a cool place. While I am looking for general feedback on this track, I'm particularly interested in how much of
  11. I am so sorry. I stayed up all night writing the thing and recording and thought it sounded a little cringy but decent But wow I listened to it again and just... I'm sorry.
  12. https://www.dropbox.com/s/9gi6nspoi30420m/storageemulated0utw.android.midsequerexportsCinderella Cage.mid?dl=0 ok I made a basic transcription with my phone. It's just melody and bass with none of the texture or harmony filled in, but hopefully that helps! What DAW are you using? Is there other software where those midis work for you like Windows Media Player?
  13. Sorry, Trism https://www.dropbox.com/s/xh93qdym5zdtx34/th08_11.mid?dl=0 Or go to http://touhoumidi.altervista.org/imperishable-night.html and download the 11th track, Cinderella Cage ~ Kagome-Kagome. That should work; I tested it with my computer before I put it into storage.
  14. Haha I wish I had seen this thread a few days ago before I submitted my chiptune to the site. Still I really like pure chiptune, but I guess if my chiptune gets rejected two years from now I'll load it up again and give it some panning and maybe even some subtle eq and compression if appropriate. This was a good read. If you say so. Now I'm determined to make a single channel Beepola arrangement get through
  15. This is exciting! Use this picture please. (Or just use my OCR profile pic.) https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/34087043/Lorelei 360x360.jpg The color is fine.
