  1. Oh that is really disappointing :(

    I'm still working on my track! I took a break after I hit a wall with the arrangement, but I've been slowly making progress. I think the majority of the arrangement is finished, just trying to smooth some transitions and figure how I'm ending it. This is always the longest part in my process, once the arrangement is final, everything else comes together pretty quickly!

  2. I am so in! Golden Sun is one of my favourite soundtracks. My issue is trying to decide which track to choose from because they are all so good! Saturos and Menardi, Magma Rock, and Kolima Forest are probably ones I am most interested in.

    I play electric guitar(pretty much just rhythm stuff) and would be willing to record some stuff for others too if need be(if they can't find someone better)

    Hello, all! Me here. Again.

    I have been out of commission since August due to a personal loss of someone very close to me. I've been anti-social, shutting out the people closest to me, and throwing myself in full 'get through the day' mode for three months - with a little self-pity for maximum impact. There is nothing like doing everything the grief counsellors tell you not to do - the platitudes lose their effect after a while, and it's amazing how far down you go before you realize where you are and how long you've been there.

    So, I have let this get off the rails again, and this time, I let it run over our final deadline. I can say with certainty that this project is not yet to the point where it can be submitted, and due to the utter lack of updates in my absence - except @Slimy (final tracks submitted! YAY), @JulienMulard, and @TheChargingRhino, I've received no updates from anyone. That being said, I really wasn't here at all this time and judging from some of the feed I was reading on Discord, some folks are losing faith - so here I am, once again checking in with the project and letting everyone know I'm not dead and neither is this project.

    Now, we are past the final deadline I set for September 30th. I have to reframe this project to get it back on track and this may mean renaming the project itself. If you still want your submitted track to be included in the album, have faith and I will be reaching out soon! If you are out of patience with me and want to take the music elsewhere (or submit independently), please let me know or I will assume you are still on board.


    For anyone questioning whether I will see this through, you would be right to ask - but please understand that this project gives me a joy I don't have in other parts of my life right now. I will see this through one way or the other - after all, I always come back, don't I? :)

    I'm sorry again for being away. Please have patience with me through this - we're still going to get this done!

    So sorry to hear about your loss, Nika. I completely understand as I've lost someone recently too...

    I hope things get better for you, and I hope you have a reliable network of close friends and family to help you through.

    I'm also sorry that I haven't had any updates for a while, I'm still trying to get myself back on track. Pun intended.

  4. You know, there has been a couple of times where I've been thinking about this song and suddenly find myself thinking about the SMB Castle theme, but I thought I was just weird. Maybe there is something there after all...

    I do like the idea of using the jingle as a transition to Wart's if I go that route, and yeah I don't think I'd do it if it doesn't sound natural. Seems lazy to just paste it on the end.

    Thanks, dude ^_^

  5. Yeah, that's pretty fair. I kind of leant right into the repetitiveness of the original but I thought maybe the rhythm variations might make up for that. That said, the drums are still very copy/paste so there's probably a tonne I can do there as well.

    I think your suggestions are great and I'll definitely try and work on that, cheers.

  6. I'm pretty close to finalising my arrangement, and hopefully I'll have something not completely horrible to show very soon. I don't anticipate any problems meeting the next check-in since after tomorrow I'll finally have a large chunk of free time for the first time this year!

    It sucks about the Andross thing, I was interested in the idea of a big collab but didn't want to commit until I had something more substantial with Sector Z.

    I was listening to the WIPs last night and I'm still really impressed, inspires me to pick up my game a bit more, great work so far, guys.
