  1. Man, orchestral composition is killing me. It's definitely something I'm going to have to get the hang of. After like 12 hours of work, this little 45 second bit is all I got (or all I'm letting anyone hear for now, the rest sucked too bad ^^ ). http://www.finalfantasy7.info/inciting_incident.mp3 Not sure exactly why I'm posting it now, this isn't a WIP forum .... I guess call it a preview or something? Speaking of, Claado do we send the final audition pieces to you in PM or post them here?
  2. I'm sorry, I'm SURE you explained this somewhere and I just missed it, but could you explain what you mean by supplying a "visual" along with our work?
  3. First off, sweet project concept Claado has come up with here. I'm really looking forward to hearing the final result. I'll get to work on my audition piece, though synth-free orchestration is a bit new to me. I would argue that certain limited synth work be allowed as (from what I understand) some of our greatest modern film composers use them to reinforce the orchestra, such as Hans Zimmer ("The Last Samurai," "The Lion King," etc.): my film composing god. However, he uses it VERY subtely and I can easily see synth work getting out of hand here so I'll respect your call on this. As for drum kits, I believe you can get fantastic battle music without utilizing any type of rock or electronic-style percussion. Take the "Pirates of the Caribbean" OST (my all-time favorite film OST). All traditional bass drum, timpani, etc. but it still packs a great punch. Of course, if that's what you meant by drum sets, than disregard this whole paragraph. ^^ I'd love to take/collaborate on a battle theme if possible. ^^ ....aw, we lost zircon? boooooo....
  4. This is the remix that turned me into an OCR addict. I've listened to it way too much and I still love it. I wish Ceracryst would show himself around here again ... I'm dying for more of this goodness.
  5. Fantastic. Been waiting to see this pop up on the OCR home page. I remember thinking that it was impossible to remix OWA and really do the song justice. ... so much for that theory. Congrats for proving me wrong. Still loving this remix, even after months of listening in the WIP forum.
  6. Spectacular. A wonderful way to introduce Windwaker to OCR. Great blend of classic Zelda melody and new material. Great strings. A well-executed, emotionally stirring work. Great job.
  7. Hey, I know this an extremely basic question and I'm sorry, but I don't have access to my operations manual at the moment. Can Reason open other types of song file formats (ie: FruityLoops, Cubase, etc.)? Is there a way to translate them into .rns format? If this just isn't possible, what's the best way to go about collaborations?
  8. Any suggestions of where to search for church or handbells?
  9. Just can't find that dream sound? This is the place to ask.
