    ThaSauce went down for quite some time, so my entry that i have ready couldn't be uploaded. Would it be ok if we have like a couples hours extension to account for that so i can get my submission in? @Bundeslang

    That was a fun round, though I confess I'll most likely not continue the Breath of Fire trend XD

    It's results time
    Hleet entered a bonus song.
    HoboKa got 9 points and gets the last place wooden spoon.
    AxLR just avoided it with 10 points and gets the second place.
    And the winner of PRC448 by unanimous decision is Souperion with 15 points.
    Souperion, you are the winner. You may pick a source for PRC450. Send the source to me (with a MID/MP3 file, otherwise send a second source with a MID file) by PM, other options are PM me @ ThaSauce or by e-mailing to bambombim@gmail.com (I prefer a PM @Ocremix). Send your source as fast as you can, but before next Wednesday (29 June 2022), 11:00 AM ThaSauce time (18:00 UTC, 19:00 GMT).
    You may select any source from any game, but not a source with an OverClocked remix or a source which has been used in PRC before. An overview of the past PRC's can be found in the following links (I recently updated this site):

    Sorry i missed this round, i was away for 5 days on vacation, so i ended up getting caught up on a lot of things. Plus as well, i was struggling to come up with something for this, it was actually more difficult than i thought. It's a lovely source, but it's not an easy one to remix. That as well as me being busy. Glad you guys had fun, now that i'm here, i'll try and throw something in for the next round. The voting box seems to be closed, so i'll post a few words here. None of the entries really go over 3 minutes, so this one will be pretty dam short. Oh well.
    Souperion - I'm worried it's gonna be a lot of Breath of Fire lol. We've already had 2, and this might not be the last. Oh well, it's a good game with a good soundtrack, so there's nothing wrong there. This has all the makings of your classic orchestral sound. The intense string and brass work, mixed with the electric guitar sounds. The melody work is strong here, i love how you've added all the instruments into perfect harmony, it sounds like a great HD rendition of the source. There is a lot of intensity in this one, which is good and bad. I don't know about everyone else, but i find it weirdly hollow. Like there seems to be a lot of loud brass notes, and quiet string work. I don't know if this is intentional, but i definately feel the mix could do with a slight bit of polish. Also some of the arpeggios are very unnatural, and mechanical. It sounds like it was meant for a synth, not an acoustic instrument. However though despite that, the idea was pretty awesome, and i can definately understand why you was chosen to be the potential winner (Assuming what's on ThaSauce is correct. I've just gotten here). It's a lovely arrangement, and a ton of fun, well done!
    AxLR - Welcome back dude! Been missing your techno jams. Really loving how you've transcribed the melodies into some tight synths and mallets, really adds that whole tight funkiness to the whole thing. Bassline and drum work is a little overpowering for this, and the melodies are very hidden. I'd add something more louder to amplify the melodies, and make the bassline not so rattling in my ears. The idea is awesome though, and while short, it was super creative, and gave me some inspiration for some ideas. Honestly going techno is not actually a bad idea, i feel with polish this could be amazing. Already sounds lovely, you did a great job on this, well done!
    HoboKa - This one is very short, so i don't know if i'll get some mileage out of it. I mean 1 minute pieces can work amazingly well, but i feel we'd need a little more if i were to get a full listening experience out of it. Also when i listen to short pieces, i have a feeling it becomes more unfinished the shorter we go. The actual arrangement itself is pretty awesome to be honest, it's a very honest and almost accurate orchestration of the piece. Like if there was a remake, this is a great candidate for an official remix, the piano and drum work is really great. There doesn't seem to be much string work in this, or at least the strings are getting pushed down by the drums and piano. If i were to polish it, i'd add some strings and maybe tone down the intensity of the drums. Also i had to replay this like 6 times in order to write down some actual feedback lol. Still though lovely stuff, really did an awesome job on the arrangement, well done!
    Hleet - Great brass and string work, there seems to be a lot of consistent themes in each of the remixes here. This is my favourite in regards to the string work, it's very clear and concise, and really lends itself for some super strong melodic writing. I love the brass work here, it really goes super well with the strings. The timpani hits also really adds some weight to the whole thing, it was great. Now if i were to critique it, there is quite a heavy lack of bass parts in this, making it a little too light an airy for the piece. A double bass or cello could work super well. The ending is very abrupt, and feels like the sound just stops, without any anticipation for the ending. A fade out would be good here, to conclude your remix. I'd also consider some general mixing touches here too, it's a little muddled. It's almost like you have the orchestra playing in a straight line, rather than arranged how it would normally would. So what i mean by that is, traditionally we have the percussion in the back, the strings and woodwinds in the front, and brass somewhere in the middle. In your remix, they seem to be in the same spot throughout, which makes for a more stiffer orchestra. Still though, i love the string work in this one, very clear, and probably the best part about the whole thing. Well done!
    Again, hopefully i can make it to the next round!

    Souperion reacted to DarkeSword in How is Nintendo's recent music action going to affect this site   
    SynaMax's "remixes" were essentially re-creations of music from Metroid Prime, going as far as using the same hardware as Kenji Yamamoto. AFAIK, he wasn't doing the same type of interpretive, from-scratch arrangements that we do here. That may have factored into Nintendo's decision to contact him specifically. I haven't seen any instance of Nintendo contacting any other artist, so it's hard to agree with "Nintendo is going after remixes now."
    There's always the danger of a company like Nintendo coming down hard on fan communities. If Nintendo issues takedowns to us, then we'll have to figure out what to do when that happens. OCR very specifically doesn't allow submissions that sample the original game audio, but that might not mean much to Nintendo's legal team. There's an argument for Fair Use, but that's a legal defense that you present to a judge or jury, not a response you give to a Cease & Desist.
    As far as being concerned about being able to listen: once something is posted to the internet, it never truly leaves the internet. There are remixes that have been removed from this site that you can still download at various places. Nintendo has issued C&Ds against things like AM2R (the incredible Metroid 2 fan-remake) and you can absolutely still find those projects without too much effort. If Nintendo wants to play legal whack-a-mole, that's on them.
    When it comes to the music you'd like to remix and arrange: do what you want. Remix the hell out of Mario and Metroid and Zelda and Kirby if those are the soundtracks that inspire you. Even if the worst happens and we can't feature them on OCR anymore, that shouldn't stop you from making something.
