  1. One of my all time favourite video game ost. Finally had the courage to turn this into a remix. I always loved these metal percussions in Mining Melancholy, so I preserved the original metals loop for this remix (not sure, if it disqualifies me for submission). Best regards
  2. Yeah, by dropping some instruments to the back or moving some to the front, you create the feeling of a room and giving it a lot of depth. Some vst instruments offer you to mix with different microphone positions, but if you don't have that option, there's vsts like Tverb/Berlin Studio/ocean way studios etc., that let you mess with the dry/wet signals. That can sometimes work much better than adding reverb, since it preserves the clarity and if you want, you can still slap the reverb on top in the end. I'm not sure, how it's handled in rock music. What works for me is again placing the instruments in the room in different positions. I use iZotopes Ozone Imager for that, it's free, I use that on almost every instrument to place it in the mix and in the end I fix the frequency issues, for example low-end heavy stuff are centered and instruments with higher frequencies can be stereo. And if it still doesn't work, I try to sidechain the bass or work with layering kickdrums to seperate low and high frequencies. I have that too, at 3 am it's still insane and I wake up at 12 to find out it wasn't insane at all haha
  3. Hey everyone, I did an arrangement of Wintery Imil from Golden Sun, because there's never enough of Golden Sun ? I had to mess around a little bit with the Intro part of the original OST to make it work. Best Regards
  4. Hi everyone, I'm working on an ambient breakbeat remix of the "Aquatic Ambience" theme form DKC1. I have outlined the majority of the percussion and synths so far. This is the current WIP: I need a vocalist (mezzo-soprano), who can cover the range, that piano plays from 1:04 onward til the end and I also need a lyricist, who can write a fitting lyrics. There might be one or two more vocal parts, but I'm still working on it. Vocalist recording should be clean, since the vocals will be in the focus. Also have some pitch correction software ideally. If you guys know someone, who would like to work on this project, you can also help me network and respond below! Best regards!
  5. I really like your arrangement, it has a very happy and positive vibe to it and I think you did a great job! I also dig the transition at 3:06. If you don't mind a little feedback, in my opinion you could give your track more substance by filling in the complete sonic space. At the moment it feels like it's just panning. You could move the brass more to the front and give them a touch more dynamics and transient designing to cut through the mix better (brass tends to sound synthy and flat without dynamics) A bit more low end on the guitar, that plays the bass parts would also add some punch! Best Regards!
  6. I bought a super expensive asian instrument library (JEO) a long time ago, but never used it really, so I decided to finally put it to the test and wrote a short cinematic trailer type track using JEO scattered everywhere. It's finished as it is, but I will extend it in the future. Right now, I just lack the ideas to keep evolving the end. Best Regards!
  7. Hey everyone, after almost a year of being busy, I went back to practice producing and experimenting and it turned out to be Trance this time! I know there's a surplus of Stickerbush Symphony remakes out there, so I hope you can still enjoy this one! Kind regards!
  8. Hello team! I finished studies recently and I now have more time on my hands, so I think about more video game OST to rework. Meanwhile I wanna share some original music here with you! Best regards, Mental
  9. Hi folks, I wanted to share my interpretation on this theme. Golden Sun is one of my most loved games, played it when I was a kid and many of you probably know this theme/game, so I think no introduction is needed Also, I always write original music, so this is my first rework Please be merciful with your judgement!
