  1. You remind me of me. I'll get that WiP as soon as possible. -chth
  2. i hate it when people actually know what they're doing...cause I don't. FUN FACT: That was a bunch of wordy bullshit that basically means "I'm going to try to make it slow". -chth
  3. Hey Starky, can I call you Starky? Anyway Starky, did you enjoy It's My Turn to Dream at all? Just curious. Also, I am looking forward to trying a broad soundscape involving lots of dreamy synths, acoustic drumset, minimal orchestral elements such as strings and solo winds, and live played classical acoustic guitar. You can also count on a lot of tastefully applied reverb, filters, and maybe some subtle distortion. I'll pick a track by tommorrow night, if not by the end of tonight. -chth
  4. Thank you for your clearly unadulterated enthusiasm. I'll look for a track later on today. -chth
  5. OH FUCKING SNAP Why did I not see this sooner? Why am I just now stumbling across this? This was a great idea to begin with, and I'm glad to see it back. This might be a great opportunity for me to try a different style of remixing. Go here or here for my past work. Let me know if you want me on, and I'll look for a track. -chth
  6. Can't remember. I know I did a lot of tweaking with effects and panning, though. -chth
  7. Don't worry, those are my final words. Let the page-whoring of my review thread continue! -chth
  8. Look, I appreciate it guys, but I don't need anyone standing up for me. I'm a big boy, and I can argue for my art. Which I shall do... NOW! Point #1: You are musically ignorant. I UNDERSTAND THAT YOU TWO DISLIKE THE SONG. But the reasons you gave as to WHY you dislike it are pretty much bullshit, and you really need to realize that. This not 'generic trance'. In fact, if it weren't for the goa section with the sitar, one could argue that this isn't even trance at all. You two are not experts on electronica and/or music in general, and you have both proven such. That does not mean that I am cla
  9. 1. You obviously do not know what 'derivative' means. 2. You obviously do not know what 'typical trance' sounds like. 3. You obviously do not know anything about the judges and what they 'eat up'. 4. Given that 1, 2, and 3 are true, I have concluded that I need not waste any more of my valuable time responding to your accusations. lol @ ignorance -chth P.S. Millman, you have no idea how much I appreciate your maturity and general sense of reason. You made it very clear why you don't like this piece, and I am glad you shared your opinion.
  10. This was my personal favorite from RotS, and it still holds true. The drums aren't really an issue for me, because they do exactly what they are meant to do without sounding terrible. The rest of the elements in the mix are so excellent that I don't notice the drums, and that's a good role in this context. -chth
  11. Yes. Your opinion is true. I'm not going to bitch at you, but it tears me apart to see you describe a work of art that I created as shallow. It just feels like you are completely missing everything I put into this piece of music and dismissing it because it is electronica. I could be wrong. Sorry to dissapoint you. I will try harder. -chth P.S. Playful smilies do not make your words nicer. No, i actually got everything you were trying to do in this piece. It's just not very exciting or original to me. But that's just my opinion. I like your older works. So yes, next time try harder just for me

  13. Reminds me of old-school OCR. The good old-school OCR, that is. -chth
  14. Let's get to the point... I need to drop out of this project. Reasons: 1. My song is alright, but I can't fit the melody in at all, let alone make it connect and make sense. 2. I'm burnt out on remixing specific games for specific projects. Getting my S3&K track done was pulling teeth itself, and I just want to just be able to do any song that pops into my head. 3. I don't want to waste time doing a track that I'm not enjoying and give the project a sub-par mix that was only intended for an Easter egg in the first place. 4. Sounds like the animator has a lot on his hands as well, so it mi
  15. That's it; I'm solving the mystery of the Bad Bass once and for all (exclamation points signify "bad" notes): So, to recap: The culprits are 1. an extremely out of tune first note, and 2. a questionable choice on the third note. That is all. -chth
  16. Hah, well, at least you liked some of it, right? Also, the piano is fake, sequenced, not played by human hands, etc. In fact, all the real instruments in this piece are emulated (excluding the guitar). Thanks for your thoughts! -chth
  17. Good to see you again, Assface. Man. MAN. This is so awesome... I wish the backing track would have been better produced. The vocals sound great, but the guitars sound flat and the drums are painfully unrealistic. Still very catchy, though. -chth
  18. *high five* I'll get started on the awesomeness that is DeDeDe electrolatin today, after I get back from lunch with the ladyfriend. And that means in like two hours. I will try very hard to have something uploaded tonight. -chth
  19. Hey all, just letting you know that I finished my track for the Sonic 3 & Knuckles project tonight, and I will be starting on my DeDeDe mix very soon. Also, I have a question. Will it be alright if I upload the WiP of my track on VGMix, or should I find another means of hosting? Thanks in advance, and good luck to everyone! -chth
  20. Let's push for an official renaming of this song. "Triforce VBR" -chth
  21. Hey that's one accurate nick you've got there. The intro strings had me worried, but when the low accompianement came in on the right, I was sold. Excellent work from Danny B, and he has once again avoided my wrathful judgehate. Download this shit live, you mothafuckas. -chth
  22. Yeah, that's a good question. I mean, I can make it as long or short as you need it, dont get me wrong, I'd just like to know if YOU have any preferance, seeing as I'm aiming for about 3:30 ish right now (give or take a few seconds). HAH! I don't have this problem. I get 100% free artistic liscense. -chth
  23. Shit, now I have to like, do a good job. Stupid populace. -chth
