  • Biography
    I'm a full-time teacher as well as a part-time bladesmith. I've been welding since 2008 and forging since 2010. Currently, I'm focused on blades and other edged tools but I've recently started forging some ornamental ironwork as well. In particular, I'm branching off into functional video-game replicas and the like and fulfilling my childhood dreams of smashing shit with big fucking swords.

  1. Good stuff. I enjoyed the track and the energy. Each transition was really smooth and enjoyable. Nice work
  2. Thank you! There are a couple of older attempts. The first is also rhodes piano, the other is an 8-bit SNES synth called famisynth. Only problem with famisynth is that I can't slide notes using it like I can on a rhodes synth.
  3. Thanks! I just recently started getting into remixing. I remember the leads of the original song being way more metal than what I have, if I revisit the track I'll need to do something about that. I've been practicing my workflow in FL studio so recently stuff has been more quantity over quality. Thanks again for the input, greatly appreciated.
  4. 0:21 - 0:50 feels a little empty, the lead synth used seems lacking in something. After 0:50 it gets lit though, really fantastic. I would personally add delay or some heavy reverb to the synth used from 0:21 - 0:50 for added depth. Really dig the remix and synthwave vibes. Good stuff!
  5. Soundcloud is being weird again, but here it is https://soundcloud.com/100_percent_roemer/gravbea
  6. Thanks for the feedback! I made the track in about three hours and then took a couple more off and on to do a little mixing. It's a rushed project so I relied a lot on maximus and compression to make up for my sloppiness along with excessive reverb and delay. Basically, instead of taking the extra time to ensure that the track was clean I just dumped a bunch of reverb on it and then relied on compression to bring it all out. Results in a muddy sounding mix in the end I think. If I get some more time to clean up the track I'll keep your points in mind. Thanks for taking the time to gi
  7. https://soundcloud.com/100_percent_roemer/redbrin If speedrunning super metroid as a game is fun, speedrunning a remix is even more fun.
  8. From a composition standpoint, you use a violin and a piano at the beginning but use the piano for sustain and the violin for the faster notes. Perhaps it might sound better if you flipped the two instruments for the first 20 seconds or so. The piano is a little off beat throughout the song. If you recorded live that's understandable, you can fix that in post pretty easily. A lot of the song sounds like you're pecking at notes, I would mix various chords into the end of each phrase to complete your musical thoughts at the ends of the measures. Don't forget that the piano has 88 notes

  10. I have the first generation M-audio BX-8 monitors and they were very nice when I used them in the past. Currently I do all of my music work at night and I can't be pumping them then, hah.
  11. Fun and quirky, takes my back to the days when gameboy was the hottest shit in town. The first three tracks seem a bit scattered, don't seem to have a solid theme behind them to hold attention. The last track is nice though!
  12. Wow, these are great! Love the atmosphere and the feel of these tracks.
  13. Right now I'm rocking a super budget pair of Samson SR850s, although lots of people swear that they are the best bang for the buck for mixing on a budget. I have a great set of M-audio studio monitors but I can't use them currently... Oh well. Anyway, here's a playlist of all of the tracks I've finished up for the game - they don't have to be great, they just have to be good enough to get the point across... At least that's what I keep telling myself
