  1. Horizon: Forbidden West Zero Dawn is easily in my top 3 games ever
  2. So it loos like 15 years after graduating high school I'm finally about to go to college. *shrug* we'll see how it goes
  3. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Gy3KyM3Xc-jKWz09hDBcmqMxdopYRH_q/view?usp=sharing Still missing leads in a few spots, but the general idea is there.
  4. HAHAHAHA Wow I never would have thought of taking this track in a direction like this! Super creative, and well-executed. I especially love the big beefy rythm guitars
  5. I love Mischief Makers, and I hate Synthwave, so let's see how this goes.... First thing I notice is that it's really quiet. Some mastering/multiband compression/maximization/whatever would help this a lot. Low end feels really empty. The only thing that sort of occupies the low end is the kick, and even that feels a bit thin. I hear a bass synth that feels like it should be filling out the low-end.... might just be my headphones, but it doesn't seem to really do it. Arrangement is repetitive and straightforward. Gonna be honest: this seems like a respectable early foray into music production, but doesn't seem like something that's destined to be posted. It's too conservative in the arrangement and too quiet in the production. Don't be discouraged though! First thing I'd focus on is making the bass more interesting. I can totally imagine this track forming the foundation under which a rippin' bass solo would run. Second thing I'd focus on is making the percussion more varied and more interesting. Right now, it's just a thin repetitive loop, but some slicing and dicing (and punchier samples) could really liven this up! Kudos for mixing this criminally-underappreciated game DISCLAIMER: I have literally never heard a synthwave track that I liked, so take what I say here with a grain of salt
  6. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-oNix9r7icrR4UB15Pfcbm13SbUoyQVz/view?usp=sharing Goron City from Zelda OoT/TP. Collaborating with @ffmusic dj on production. In a sense, this is a tribute to the historical contributions of black musicians, and an exploration of the history of the banjo. It uses a fretless gourd banjo, a standard fretted banjo, and a bluesy acoustic guitar with a bronze slide. Still super-rough as far as production. Levels, EQ, FX, etc have not been addressed at all yet
  7. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1KDBJMCXIEATSqdswefry6fCHrzA0TOQZ/view?usp=sharing Spekkio's Theme, done as an old time back porch fiddle/banjo tune. Heavily inspired by "Soldier's Joy," another classic fiddle tune (in fact I even snuck in the Soldier's Joy melody in a few parts). @XPRTNovice on acoustic guitar, @MagiNinjA on fiddle, and me on clawhammer banjo!

  8. I'm so sure I've heard this, but I can't identify it.....
  9. I just obtained a fretless gourd banjo. Holy shit. Music just pours out of this thing. There is now a remix of Goron City in progress, which I will ostensibly claim credit for, but make no mistake: I did not write this arrangement, the banjo wrote it for me.
  10. So I did my first attempt at a speedrun the other day -- behold the 20th fastest Tetris Attack Stage Clear run: (pretty sure I can get top 15 if I keep working at it)
  11. I have nothing of substance to offer, but hope to be building a house sometime in the next year or two which will include a studio (was hoping to be building it now, but..... yeah), so I'll be following this thread.
  12. Staying inside, looking for a remote job, trying to get various side-hustles going. My entire industry is completely shut down (though I was planning on attempting a career change this summer anyway). And my wife is immune-compromised, so we really can't take any chances. Otherwise, lots of Starcraft 2 and Melee. A bit of banjo practice. And that's about it.
  13. Update: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1iQ1XNlhkzlZ3q0_0VKRuOd7BRpqqdwmC
  14. So I thought I'd take a break from arranging game tunes for banjo, and try it the other way round: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1nBOSBtMC38ljqacKUntw_lEZBGFBOzRn
  15. Another quick clawhammer banjo sketch: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1LZKSx9An0-oQHJPzXTDiJTGAOGg8bbGm
  16. Updated, much higher-quality (stereo) recording: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1qJrci747-KNq6ZZEX7NmBzr8KqszVA8G
  17. Current link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1qJrci747-KNq6ZZEX7NmBzr8KqszVA8G Just kind of a doodle for now, but I might develop this into a more complete mix further down the road. What think y'all?
  18. ..... ...... ......... ...... holy shit Yeah, this might be the best mix on the site right now
  19. Ooooooooooh! You know, I don't normally like classical/orchestral-type arrangements, but I really love this! I love how it feels small and intimate, like a small group of musicians sitting in the same room, pouring out their feelings through the music. Superb work
  20. @IForgotMyPassword might wanna tag @prophetik music to make sure he sees this. Also @Global-Trance
