  1. I second what Black_Doom said, great melodic, slightly melancholic dubstep mix. Excellent reintepretation.
  2. Pretty. Freaking. Awesome. Non stop frisson from start to finish. Had to check out the Mega Man remix, awesome job on that one as well. More, please!
  3. Ecco the Dolphin, I remember playing this game, and I remember that I was frustrated at the time that the dolphin had very limited and nonviolent attack options. Had I been a bit more mature at the time, I would have probably enjoyed the game more. As far as this mix goes - I do not think that it goes enough in the direction of being a ReMix/rearrangement. It is more of a cover. It preserves the same mood and much of the same notations for most of the instruments from the source throughout the mix. The only truly new thing that I notice is the change in the bass notation at around 1:40. So, th
  4. Man, that track by The Others, pretty f-ing awesome. It's rough, nice beats, plus it has that unpolished rough-around-the-edges underground sound to it, which I love. Awesome track, really. If the Prodigy were making dubstep back in their Music for the Jilted Generation days, that's what it would sound like. Undersea Palace does have some similarities to the Terminator theme, which I have exploited to some degree in my Chronodyne remix. I would say that you have done a good take on the arp - it reminds me of Marylin Manson's Resident Evil theme. My main issue with your remix is that aside fro
  5. Hmmm, Mass Effect - I actually just started to play the first game in the series and I don't think there was a single memorable theme just yet. Having listened to the source links, my fears remain - it is always hard to remix and reinterpret a track that is more of a background score rather than a theme with a pronounced melody. But let's put these caveats aside for a minute and check out the remix. I really like the intro, slightly distorted piano, airy pads/strings. You can make the bass section stabs a little quieter with less verb. You could also increase the attack on them, and overlay a
  6. Man, SuperiorX mentioned playing Red Alert over LAN, I remember playing it over dial-up... Really takes me back. Excellent remix, good to see beatdrop back! Hopefully more remixes are on the way!
  7. Silky smooth and super chill. I am in general a fan of Ruku's work, and he stays true to form with this one.
  8. Schala? Trance? Sounds interesting, let's check it out. Ok, the intro is pretty typical for a Schala remix, we have the typical Schala arp with other elements slowly coming in. No particularly new or interesting ideas, but everything is more or less well-executed. The string swells sound a little artificial, so you they would benefit from some additional processing/layering, maybe reverb to make them sound natural. Before I was able to put down my comments on the intro I finished listening to the remix. Then I listened to it a few more times, and really there are a few big picture issues with
  9. Alright, finally getting back to the community after a bit of a hiatus.

About me: Far from a professional musician (though I have a bit of a background in classical piano and upright bass), my involvement in any kind of creative process associated with music is limited to what I do on OCR. I mainly foc
  10. Very enjoyable movie. I was surprised how much screen time was dedicated to Krypton and Jor-El, but it ended up working really well. The story was strong enough to carry the action for the most part and there were no usual Nolan-style plot holes. Amy Adams was great as Lois, even though she doesn't really look the part. Action sequences with Faora were especially good. The action and effects with all the collapsing skyscrapers and DBZ aerial hand to hand combat could have been cut down, there was just too much of it, it was hard to absorb everything that was going on and I quickly lost intere
  11. Was I wrong to assume that this deserves a topic of its own?
  12. How come there is not a topic about this yet? http://uk.gamespot.com/news/kiefer-sutherland-confirmed-as-snake-in-metal-gear-solid-v-6409372?tag=Topslot;Slot2
  13. Some really cool ideas here. However, this needs a lot of polish in the production department, and that could potentially be that as I think the rearrangement factor is strong enough for the portion of the source material used. But then again, it may work against it that only the first half of the theme was used.
