  1. Go for it. I have no clue if the old archive is still up, so it'd be cool to have it available again for at least a little while.

  2. Hey Coop I have the entire Nice Work archive (I think it's the whole thing) if you want me to throw it up online for you guys. <3

  3. HOLY SHIT YOU'RE ALIVE!

    ...

    Er, I mean, hey *ms. Haven't seen you in a very long time, but glad my sig put a smile on your face. How goes things at your end of the world?

  4. I haven't logged in here forever, and seeing your animated signature really made my day. <3

  5. This post isn't about the remix (sorry) but about a huge beef I have with the writeup. This has no place in a remix write up whatsoever. Putting in a personal tidbit, especially something of this nature, is unprofessional and unacceptable. You made a remark about drama - what is this? The vast majority of people downloading this mix would have had no idea about any kind of drama had you not posted a comment like that, and frankly it not only makes you look bad, but having it in a ReMix decscription makes OCR look bad as well. This site is about game music and the community of remixers and fans behind it, not petty squabbling and personal differences behind the scenes. I think it would be in your best interest and in the best interest of the site to remove references to whatever kind of drama fest happened in the making of this album. Please don't tarnish it.
  6. This is the thing that impressed me the most - the original is probably my favorite track from the game and this remix takes everything great about that song and makes it better. This is a really slick song - very, very nice work.
  7. Completely mind blowing you guys. This is from really professional work, but what else to expect? My favorite track so far is Chekan Winter, but something tells me this CD is going into my favorites. The DKC soundtrack was always one of my favorite soundtracks and it's a real treat to hear it presented like this. Thanks, guys. You're awesome.
  8. Ohhhh I think I'm in love! This remix just works. Everything fits together perfectly. This makes me so happy. I mean, wow. I'm inchoerent this is so awesome. Star is easily one of my favorite remixers on this website, and songs like this are fucking why. I loved Tickle My Wily, it had a kind of power behind it, but this takes the fucking cake right here. I really don't have the skill to analyse this on a huge in depth technical level, but from an asthetic point of view, this is easily professional grade. Easily. You can really just feel the song in the section preceeding 3:30 and after it. The synth that was chosen just fits in perfectly, and really helps to carry a lot of the emotion of the song along with the wonderful voice work. The voice and the synth really compliment each other. I don't know about you guys, I get a vision of X and Zero going through it together. It sounds really cheesy, but they are players one and two when you really get down to it. This shit's making me all nostalgic and misty eyed. I bow to you, sir.
  9. Absoluetly incredible. Jeremy Soule is one of my favorite game composers and it blows my mind that he did a remix. Coming from sombody thats sat in an orchesta pit, this sounds real. If you close your eyes you can see it being played in a concert hall, and you can see the Magitek armor marching across the snowfield, a fragile young woman at the reins. I was completely floored with this remix. I feel that it's one of the best ones on the site easily, and it takes a old and overused theme and injects some life and fire back into it. It feels very wintry especially with the piano and harp going on, and these have to be the most convincing brass samples I have ever heard. My favorite part has to be at 1:46 when the almost wailing flute comes in after the heavy brass cuts out. Combined with the piano and choir samples, you can really feel the tension and electricity, almost an understated desperation and sorrow, in the sound. Hats off, Mr. Soule. This is a favorite. Can't wait for some more.
  10. Really great work here, eveything fits and flows together. Actually, it's kinda of ironic, I was listening to La Saia's Resting Placewhen this was posted and I was thinking "Wow, this remix is really good, I wish Dev had more songs posted...." There's something about this song that sounds very human, very natural. It feels lonely and alone. I think it really captures something special, both as a remix and a standalone piece. The samples are very good, I don't have really any nitpicks. But, one thing that would have helped a lot would be having the fret noise on the guitar, I just kept expecting it because it felt so natural. Temporal, thanks for the link. I'll definetly be checking it out, good luck
  11. Actually yeah I've had that problem too, because I downloaded it from WinMX and all the titles are screwed up; The Desert Below was called Aqua Vistas by mistake. But Arkonviox.com used to have a scan of the CD cover and inside and track 8 was listed as Heart of the Giant. But whatever, it's a really good mix and offers a nice spin on the track Maybe you should remix Aqua Vistas too
  12. Beautiful mix from a beautiful game. Everything works and flows together well. I downloaded this from his site about a month ago and was wondering when it was gonna be accepted My only issue with the song is that some of the samples are a bit tinny sounding, but thats just nitpicking. Hope to hear more in the future Lomion, the original song, called "Heart of the Giant", can be downloaded from EccoServ in the mp3 section.
  13. Wow...... Where to start... an incredible song. Even with the light piano and ambience that begins the track you can tell so much work was put into this. Every sample is perfect and the piece just flows beautifully. All the little background things, like the wind esque sound beneath the piano or the light thunder for the transition, really do make this track. The depth of sound just encompasses you but it's never overwhelming. There's a lot going on at once, but it's never distracting at all. Even more impressive is that fact that this is a first time contribution. I was immidiately blown away by this track, and even more so when I remembered that this is a first time ReMix. This song shows a lot of promise, excellent work. I'll be waiting for more.
  14. Very solid song, I like this arrangement a lot. It reminds me of something you'd hear on a radio in the AM band in a light rainstorm or something. Weird images but a very good song. Yes it does need a little work to clear up the cloudyness but other than that I'm very impressed, this is really good for a first submission with freee software. Props to Zewtra, very nice stuff.
  15. Overall good song. The beginning is very good, I like the feeling it envokes. The beautiful guitar was my favorite part of the song. At 1:14 when the flute came in I felt like it was a little too loud after the very trancy mood and low volume of the music before it. The sample for the pan flute that was used is slightly tinny sounding and needed some vibrato on the longer notes. Also some of the percussion samples were very robotic sounding, for lack of a better word. I don't know if this was intentional but it clashed a little with that wonderful guitar. Don't mind my nit picking, it's a good song and if you've played the game you know what a great track the mountain theme is. Good first submission.
