  1. Well, I listened to the current and previous renditions, the slight changes and such sound good to me. I don't know if it is original enough to pass the judges, though. Have you tried submitting it already? If so and it didn't pass, my condolences. Try to think about what you are trying to say with this mix and what you can do with it (besides make a sweet cover.) What kind of flairs stand out to you in dance music? Is it trilling melodies, catchy counter melodies, making two notes into six, epic builds ups, etc, etc, etc? Play around with the melody or rhythm, be bold and break from the slick mold you've made. YOU CAN DO IT!
  2. Well, I think you've got something neat going on here. The tones are really warm, almost dream or trance-like (not to be mistaken with the trance genre), it's pretty somnolent at the beginning and ending. I'm not quite sure what I think of the static effect, but the general direction and atmosphere is very consistent and pleasant. A little general tuning (check for places where some instruments get overpowered/sounds get muddled together and the like) and you'll have something splendid.
  3. My first impression: hot DANG, this is well done! You pull off the olde timey piano sound nicely, the arrangements hit me with nostalgia, and the narrative approach would work even without the movie. Excellent work, I would love to see this as part of the OCR repertoire!
  4. It starts with soothing strings along with a chiptune-ish lead, then morphs into something that makes me think of a concerto between the great fairy's theme and the violin (or at least it sounds like one) dancing around while throwing in parts of Zelda's lullaby. And it sounds great! Simple it may be, but I think it is a triumph. I'd add this to my OCR playlist without hesitation.
  5. This is a collaboration between myself and Wassup Thunder, which started as playing around with some midis. I can't really claim that we're breaking new ground here, but it was fun to put together a mix of my personal favorite track from Megaman Zero. Made with Soundtrap (free website :S), but we do entertain the idea of making this good enough to submit. Wassup Thunder says: "Just hope to contribute to the underappreciated ost of Megaman Zero. Above all else, it was a crash course XD." Uh, an analysis? Got Crash, Zero's theme, and a little Neo Arcadia thrown in there. And an explody crash noise. Enjoy if you can, gimme feedback if you want! Mayhap some part is good?
  6. Ditto to what has already been said. Your arrangement captures a warm, smooth atmosphere, bringing to mind imagery of slowly shed tears, either of joy or sorrow. You simultaneously achieved a conservative yet interpretive approach, and I applaud it wholeheartedly.
  7. If this is your first time, I am really looking forward to any future submissions! You've created a lovely cover of a well loved song that well captures the atmosphere and mood of the original. It's sweet, it's faithful, and is either trying to send me asleep or into a trance. Either way, I'll take it!

    3. completed DKC2 Lost World Anthem Remix

    I looked up the source, and I can see why you love it. As for your mix here, I think you pulled off the transition into the genre you had in mind pretty well. A solid ground work of beats and synthy goodness. I will admit, the repeatedly increasing pitch for the kremlin-getting-hit effect kinda made me cringe, but I enjoyed the rest of the sfx thrown in there. I think the next step may be to get a little more interpretive with the source: I was starting to get bored about three minutes in. Something to break up/ add to the groove you got will keep the listener engaged: make different beat or rhythm, ornament the melody some, change an instrument sound or two. A little of that action will help this really shine!
  9. Improv based on a 5 second tune? Love it! Catchy, smooth, and easy to hear the source all the way through, even with some really fun interpretations! I was ready for the intro to set the tone for the whole piece, but I was pleasantly surprised by the more upbeat sections. I could handle listening to this while I punch in a password. Heck, probably would sit there for a while to hear it all the way through before I hit start. Nice woik!
  10. I remember using this song to settle down before bed years ago, playing it on an old CD an older sibling made for me. It still gives me goosebumps and tugs at my heart, every time I listen, without fail. I want to cry when it ends. One Girl in All the Word is one of the most emotional video game mixes I've ever heard.

    2. ready for review FFVI - Terra's theme

    Ah, this was lovely. A decidedly delicate feeling with tuned percussion, some acoustics, and female vocals (for which I is a sucker.) If I may wax poetic for a moment, your approach captures the more magical side of Terra, along with all the wonder, mystique, and awe. The vocals give me serious Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess vibes, and the acoustic guitar and percussion remind me a bit of timaeus222's Progressive Memory (which is a great song on the sight, I highly recommend it.) Frankly, I think my only complaint is that isn't longer. At the same time, that short sweetness... Nice work, nice work.
  12. Very smooth and relaxing, though it almost sounds a little muted. Then again, that may just be lending to the atmosphere intended. An easy listening mix, that's for sure: after you get used to the feel, it just floats there, doing its thing all the way through with some gentle variation and ornamentation. Sometimes its nice to not be blown away by a piece, but calmly impressed.
  13. When Resonance of the Pure Land came out, the track I was most hopeful for was Flight Into the Unknown. And I, and likely everyone else, was not disappointed. It's peppy, it's beautiful, it's faithful, it's innovative... more than I could have expected in a single track. Thank you for bringing back to life the exhilaration of soaring on white dragon's(?) wings.
  14. Wow, you've been at this one for a while! I tried both version 6 and 8 alongside each other, and I must say that there is obvious improvement in the sound quality in your latest version. I doubt I could offer anything that previous listeners have already said, but I personally enjoy the song as a pretty dang good cover. If it's deviation from the original that the judges want, I suggest that some playing around with the melody as the song goes on would be an easy way to keep the listener engaged. You know, first run through is faithful, second is more ornamental and interpretive. Would love to see this make it past the judges panel and into my OC library!
  15. *Clicks on post link* Ooh, I like Sonic music! *Clicks the vid* Oh. My. Goodness. How'd I miss this one? Very well done, especially when tackling such an oft mixed tune! The variety of vibes you deliver through this short cinematic wonder is impressive, and the emotional investment is obvious. A triumph! Furthermore, what did you use to make this mix? I'm looking for user friendly programs, and the stuff you're using looks pretty neat.
