  1. I played it, enjoyed it, but also: yeah that at this point, I don't know who the series target audience is. I think it's just people that enjoy the hack and slash gameplay even if it's more mindless (which I can enjoy mindless) but in terms of attracting new people in, I can't tell if they're going to do that with the future of the series or they're going to latch onto the other 10 games, and in terms of old fans, the saga we were interested in seeing concluded is kinda over so we're just sticking around for the ride. Also Disney World's had urgency in KH1... They just lack that in every other game since.
  2. I get that much; I just wanted to weigh in my 2c on it. Honestly, interesting thread. Got me thinking. (also, tbh, I didn't read the whole thread because I do enough reading in graduate school. was going to. whoops.)
  3. Well... I'm actually gonna come in and say my 2c on this in specific: Yes, you don't own it, but you own a lot of the information gained from it. You can put original melodies or sections in a ReMix/Cover/Arrangement/Potato/etc and still use them; I recently did a Barbershop arrangement for Materia (Yet to come out... soon) and while I can't, say, use that, I can still use the knowledge I've learned which would have definitely been more difficult to acquire if I just decided "I'm going to make a barbershop original" I speak from the perspective of "I am going for owning my own indie game company one day"
  4. Bumping again. Going to donate when things wind down from my move.
  5. I like where this idea is going; in particular because I think this would help composers learn how to engrave better for projects, musicians be able to do quick sessions to knock a ton out once they have enough parts in the "Ready" category, and transcription would definitely be good too. Down to help. Forum administrator of 10+ years.
  6. I'm game for helping the organization of this project. Thinking of what song I want to take....
  7. Hey @The Nikanoru I'm working my way through reduxing the arrangement some from ground up; John Stacy is making a lead sheet so I can better jazz it up, and then I think we'll have something good with the best elements taken from the previous WIP's. I'm super pumped.
  8. Sounds good! And man, I can totally understand. PM is no easy task.
  9. I'm just thinking about redoing things from the ground up now that I know how I want to do it. I'll post it once I've got it; once I've got this arrangement solid it'll be great to just pick up performers
  10. 19 (though, I'd say different games personally, 20, 15, 13, 9, and 10. Good stuff. edit: lemme add one. Buying an expensive instrument is more about ease of playing than it is about making something sound better, in most instances I've noticed and dealt with (playing Sax, Vocals, and Guitar). That's okay. Recognize whether, a t first and foremost, it's actually being a pain on you before upgrading your instrument.
  11. I finally got something that I liked; who's ready for Chopin piano meets Anime?
  12. what that was a ride from beginning to end. holy shit.
  13. i have a disappointing confession i can't play acoustic guitar that fast ALSO will be claiming soon. lots of great tracks
  14. Hey; I notice I'm still on here and I want to apologize. Lots of crazy stuff happened within my family (my mom being in the hospital for 2 months) over the past 4 months. I'm apologizing however because I didn't let anything noticed. If I'm still on this, I'll have a WIP asap!
  15. I've decided to throw my name in the hat again, especially now that I have more time/have improved after quitting music school. Hoping you get those people with or without me, Darkflamewolf!
  16. https://vgmdb.net/artist/26855 I think it's a good time to also say Jorito helped me with a good chunk of the production on that song. Granted, I've gotten significantly better at production/VST's since then. I'm on this wild ride to keep improving and making friends. I'll have a WIP soon. March 31st, right? Castlevania Rondo of Blood - Bloodlines (Stage 1). No idea on a wrestler yet.
  17. Listening to your zelda mix right now, and I'd say we should pursue this idea. I'd start by browsing past OCR Album projects - It might be more on the length of an EP side, but I think there's some real potential for some fun here to make some really high quality tracks and up all of our production game.
  18. lowering/cutting is not gonna hurt your track as much as you'd think. I have this piccolo right now that plays some very VERY high notes on one of my tracks - the original bleeds your ear. I EQ'd some of the nastier sounds in there but still made sure it sounded like a piccolo. here's a series about EQ. nobody is telling you to cut something entirely or make an instrument not sound the way it's supposed to; that's for sound design. It's all about making it the best possible for the listener (without completely sacrificing your vision)
  19. If you're going for this being an OCR official album, I think shooting for less than 20 would be a better idea, personally All up to you!
  20. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1SioXDYdtIqMiTe04P1I_ox9i8nMutgf6 lookin' for feedback particularly from jazz heads. Threw the sheet music there since a lot of it is going to be more improvised... This is gonna be interesting because I think I'll have to personally work with each live musician to get it sounding the way I want, but I think I'm getting a hold on this.
  21. Man, tonight was a heavy night working on a WIP. I ended up staying longer than I wish with an arrangement I think longer than my original? I kinda have to hash it out to make more sense and cut the filler. Also accept that this mockup is prolly gonna sound like garbo compared to what live musicians will do.
  22. Just letting everyone know that I'm working on my Area 6 arrangement heavily before giving it off to performers. Contacting a few people to see if they're interested in helping critique; I think it's really going to come to life after all the advice I've got and a ton of listening to a few Jazz albums. Also just so everyone knows, I'm going to be opening... a lot more performer slots. Like, double what I had before.
