  1. Sounds overly EQed to me, the low-mids are lacking and it sounds like you're not using the samples in their most appropriate ranges. In this scenario I'd remove all the EQs and start getting the sequencing itself to a place where it sounds correct. Proper orchestral mixing is impossible when you instrumentation needs so much improvement. The original had a rock beat and bass guitar, you can't just remove those elements and expect the track to work without a lot of arrangement for an orchestra. - Sounds like you're using violins/violas/celli to play lead parts, those samples aren't not rea
  2. Yeah the only ways I know of to "eliminate" room reflections are to either absorb or diffuse them, but I am relatively inexperienced. I never heard of doing something like phase cancelling reflections, not sure how that would physically be viable but I assume that's what "... filter to invert the problems in your room" means. @Mister Mi There aren't any monitors I'm wanting to get, I've gone through so many different ones in my studio at many price ranges, right now the main ones I'm using are just a simple pair of HS7s, I have a set of A7X's waiting in storage to be installed on my 2nd
  3. Yeah, an untreated room will be off, but there are basic "treatments" you can do via geometry and speaker placement that can make a dramatic difference. You don't have to cover your walls with insulation panels and have bass traps in your corners, as long as you place your speakers in a symmetrical position (avoid corners if you can) and have some sort of diffusion around+behind you (bookshelves or any other furniture that breaks up incoming sound waves into a relatively random/uneven dispersion pattern so you don't have too much flutter and reflections). Having accurate bass representati
  4. With multimedia speakers like those you should be careful of resonant peaks at the lower end of the frequency rages, having a peak at 80-120hz is a typical problem with speakers like that and after a while can drive you insane, so test for that. Also run some tests to determine the mid-high response at the crossover points so you can compensate in your mixes. I think room treatment as a whole is a bit overrated (even though it's necessary to some degree), what's most important is speaker placement in your immediate listening environment, so as long as you have the equilateral triangle you
  5. zyko knows what's up tho, I never have, nor will I ever question his dedication, I'm still on the fence about him deciding to start tuning his instruments, tho
  6. If only you guys put this much effort, emotion and dedication into practicing music...
  7. I like doing all three, and understanding that all three are derivative. The only "originality" we can achieve these days is in interpretation, and even then we're just combining influences.
  8. yeah it can all boil down to the impostor syndrome we all have, it's ok to express yourself openly to someone else's music cuz it means something to you, but when making your own music your expression has to be limited to something that's impossibly not derivative or biased? makes no sense to me
  9. I love coming back to check the OCR forums once every 6 years and still the same debates are going on. Just enjoy making music, no point in trying to justify it, or find some kind of deeper meaning or value in it, just have fun.
  10. Hell yeah I still remix B) B) B) B) B) B) B) B) B) B) )B )B )B )B )B )B)B)BB
  11. There's nothing wrong with hentai games. There is something wrong with a game that sexualizes explicit and very violent rape. A person who gets sexual gratification from watching soldiers beat a woman and have sex with her at gunpoint is not someone I want to associate with, and I assume that goes for most of the users on OCR. It doesn't matter that you're depicting it via silly looking sprites, it's still a very grotesque thing for you to consider pornographic. I'm sure there's a place for that kind of material somewhere on the internet, but I don't think that fits in here.
  12. So you want someone to write music for this game with is basically girls being raped at gunpoint? What's wrong with you?
  13. The thing is that you have to make sure your system is running smoothly as a whole so you don't get offline bouncing issues. Cubase is very good about it and there are very few issues with Kontakt if you are not maxing out your CPU meter. It comes down to how the DAW utilizes the CPU during the export process, Cubase usually takes a minute longer than Reaper does, but I get way more issues with Reaper so I have to re-render often. If you hit F12 in Cubase you will get the VST Real Time Performance and CPU meter, there are two bars here, the top bar is the CPU meter that shows you h
  14. In terms of the guitar analogy think of your guitar as the DAW. You get a guitar that you like to hold and play, it feels comfortable and looks the way you want. The amps and pedals you use are the plugins that you use with your DAW, they give character, depth, sound, quality, timbre and life to the notes you extract from your guitar. The playing techniques you use are all dependent on your experience and skill, so just as any advanced guitarist can do great things with a novice guitarists gear, so can an experienced composer/arranger/engineer do with a novice's DAW/plugins. So try a few DAWs
