  1. It's a minimalistic soundscape, but I think that ends up lending itself to the style. I found it seemed to fill out in parts. Also, this is particularly interesting to me because of the call and response between all the synths around 1:56, good use of finding interesting ways to play with melody while sticking with the same instrumentation - it keeps from getting boring that way. I like it personally, I find myself bobbing my head to it.
  2. Updated: Added drums and new bass now that I have better samples. Its sounding fuller. I still need to fix that bassline, and make the rhythm guitar track a little more interesting, and overall make the track less quantized.
  3. Here's the Great Fairy Fountain as a jazz waltz. Just got a new bass VST so finally I have all 3 (piano, bass, and drums - the triforce of jazz). This style is really fun, and I like to think I've gotten a little intimate with this sound lately. I'm trying to take a pretty traditional trio approach here, mostly influenced by the trio album Red Garland's Piano. A somewhat obvious influence for the waltz is Bill Evans. Taking some notes from past submissions about structure problems. I think this one has that all fixed up and has a pretty clear structure. I modified the original changes just a hair as well which you can see in this lead sheet: Great Fairy Fountain.pdf Remix: Miss Fairy, You Sure Are Great
  4. Thank you, glad you enjoy! Update: Added a little more content to it, will fix the solo section and make the lines fit better together. I'm not use to playing at 195 bpm that often Listening to it with fresh ears, it sounds like the tempo could be bumped up a tad too.
  5. I would love for you to do live trumpet, but I asked the one guy that I know and he agreed to do it. I will take your feedback into consideration for further arrangement, and maybe we could do trumpet in the future for something else.
  6. Since I have no moneys, Shreddage 3 Free just released, so here's what I've been doing with my life all day. It's out of time because I haven't gotten to that part yet, mainly just been playing around with different tones and stuff. ReMix: Crash Man's Bitchin' Ride
  7. Could you give me a timestamp for where you think it sounds jarring? I just don't understand exactly what you mean. I would love to include saxophone or harmon trumpet, but, right now I only know how to play trumpet slightly, and currently, I don't have anyone at school who could, but... I do know ONE person who could be able to do it... maybe I'll write a part out and send it over. Saxophone is out of the question, nobody I know plays saxophone well enough for what I need. Thanks for the feedback!
  8. This is a source I've been working on for probably the longest out of any of them. It's gone through hip hop, orchestral jazz, and now Gypsy jazz iterations. I'm gonna stick with the Gypsy jazz arrangement and take it to the end. Source: ReMix: Super Django Brothers
  9. This has gotta be one of the best source arrangements in the whole Zelda series. If my mix sounds good right now - don't fool yourself! You don't like my arrangement, you like the composition. So I'm giving this source some sweet lovin'. Source: ReMix: Zora Band v. 2: And One More For the Road v.3: Song for Brother Mikau v.4: Version 3 felt too muddy. Opted for a brighter sound, and less reverb. Added some limiting and very very tiny amounts of compression. Who Mixed This Chateau Romani?
  10. I got around to working on some older stuff since I recently acquired the full version of Kontakt, which means I finally get to use Django. I added guitar to this track and updated it a bunch. It's a completely different mix now.
  11. Chibi Robo? That's a pretty kid friendly game I feel like. EDIT: Kirby Air Ride is quite a simple game.
