  1. Original song: I've worked on this on and off for way longer than I'd like to admit, but it's finally in a stage I'm comfortable taking comments. V1.0: http://www.kozanryusui.net/sakkyoku_nikki/20191101.ogg 5.0 surround version (untested): http://www.kozanryusui.net/sakkyoku_nikki/20191101_surround.ogg V1.1: http://www.kozanryusui.net/sakkyoku_nikki/20191109.ogg 5.0 surround version (untested): http://www.kozanryusui.net/sakkyoku_nikki/20191109_surround.ogg V1.2: http://www.kozanryusui.net/sakkyoku_nikki/20191121.ogg 5.0 surround version (untested): http://www.kozanryusui.net/sakkyoku_nikki/20191121_surround.ogg V1.3: http://www.kozanryusui.net/sakkyoku_nikki/20191212.ogg 5.0 surround version (untested): http://www.kozanryusui.net/sakkyoku_nikki/20191212_surround.ogg The titular castle is the 5th stage of Touhou Double Dealing Character (or Touhou Kishinjou), an inverted castle floating in the sky. The original title 空中に沈む輝針城 ("Kuuchuu ni shizumu kishinjou") translates to "Castle of the shining needles, sinking into the sky". I've tried to emulate a journey through the castle: 0:00 - 0:40: Enclosing onto the castle through the cloudy sky, eventually reaching the front gates (which you can hear open if you listen closely) 0:41 - 2:26: Journying through the increasingly grand corridors and halls of the castle 2:27 - 3:08: Slowly tracking back while basking in the afterglow 3:09 - 3:23: Falling out the main gate into the evening sky (the gate closes behind you) I've loved this theme ever since I first played the game. It was the first 5th stage theme for me to finally knock the one from Touhou Mountain of Faith off its first place pedestral, and it has become one of my favorites in the entire Touhou music corpus. Initially my main motivation for creating the arrangement was to mark the climax off with the bells at 2:12 and the rest of the arrangement was just fluff to get there. Later on the actual climax shifted two more measures to the part at 2:17 because I just love deceptive cadences. The rest of the arrangement should be a very straightfoward orchestration. I've taken some liberties with the instrumentation, chord progression and custom counter points, but it's essentially a single run-through of the original song. The seating of the orchestra is German instead of American (second violins opposite first violins, basses to the left etc.) which is mostly noticable during the beginning. Considering how much I fought with almost every aspect of the song I'd be grateful for any comments on pretty much anything. The 5.0 version is a byproduct of my workflow which I cannot test due to a lack of a surround setup, so please don't expect it to be well-engineered. I'm not sure if this arrangement would cut it for submission-level quality. Judging from the other orchestral arrangements on the site so far I'm tending towards no, but I could only find either Hollywood-style arrangements (i.e. with lots of supporting percussion and/or non-orchestral instruments) or rather mellow arrangements which tend to be not as thickly layered, so I'm not really sure if these comparisons are any good indicator.
  2. A rockish arrangement of Flare's level from Panel de Pon (or the Gargantuan Blargg from Tetris Attack) with some synth and orchestral elements. As the title suggests, I was going for something to tribute the burning spirit of the fire fairy, with the rock aspects suggesting the aggressive behavior of dancing flames while the synth and piano hints at a more whimsical fae nature. This piece was an attempt on my part to experiment with the Ministry of Rock 2 plugin from Eastwest. Clearly, I have only a trace of clue what I'm doing, and the performance isn't that convincing (particularly the guitars, bass, drums.) The guitars still sound a bit hollow, and I'm hoping to learn how to make them blend with the other instruments without becoming muddy. Critiques, advice, tips, warnings, etc, appreciated. Thanks for listening, and happy new year! The original source. Inferno Fairy Meltdown.mp3
  3. I've made many changes since my first posting:) Version submitted first https://drive.google.com/open?id=1nHURd09pcMxso4k32o9CuwqUvuTeNww- Latest version 11-7-2019, second submission https://drive.google.com/file/d/18Bv8PRVMqUlDu1CxRpIjNQtLMXxhfbq5/view?usp=sharing Latest Latest version 12-24-2019 This is pretty much completely different, it's something I have been working on under a different name for a short while. The original idea of this tune has gone through the grinder a couple of times, and it was gently suggested that perhaps a different tack might help. My VERY first attempt at Epic FootSteps actually incorporated both walkabout themes from Dragon Warrior 2, and this new version is the second walkabout theme, as opposed to the first. I also add that this is obviously not close to completion, I'm looking for some feedback;) I haven't fiddled with EQ/Mastering yet. I also ask that it be listened to with something that uses ASIO for playback. On my pc, for reasons I have not been able to fathom, playback done with any normal media player sounds MARKEDLY different, in EQ and stereo image/spectrum...and I have tried all solutions googled and asked about here on these forums:) This version is not done with LMMS, as the previous version, and I have installed a few different VST's Original Second Walkabout theme Latest version 12-24-2019 https://drive.google.com/file/d/1TMV-pYLpCklO0ZdRx99wiVb8HdT5tAvS/view?usp=sharing
  4. So this is my latest WIP. This one is the first attempt without soundfonts, and done with VST's and Cakewalk. It's rough, not close to being done, just looking for feedback for work done so far. Thanks:) https://drive.google.com/open?id=1K6bENeWlr67w2fE0-eJ0O80hcuhUuz7d
  5. Chemical Zone Remix WIP! I hope you guys enjoy head bobbing like a maniac!
  6. This is something I put together really quickly, and I want to know if the instrument quality is up to par. Thanks!:) https://drive.google.com/open?id=1g7mbZMuCMpxs8gcqaDvR0DDfURMvPTOE I fiddled with the lead guitar a bit, toggled off something called "doubling", and dialed down the reverb.
  7. The mixing is a bit off, I'll admit. I also want to throw in a solo or something to add more original content and make it more of a "ReMix" know what I mean? https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/891396
  8. https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/893733 My main concern here is the solo. It's not quite where I want it to be, but I can fix it. Eventually. Critiques welcome.
  9. This is a piece I composed with Wassup Thunder. And yes, it is another Song of Storms. The intent was to explore the source material liberally and make a somewhat memorable arrangement. Still working on better production with synthesizers, so any tips are appreciated. Thanks for listening! The original, just in case.
  10. I'm not sure where to go with this one. I'm thinking full reggae would be a good idea. The mixing is a mess due to the fact that I have no idea what I'm doing mixing live instruments. https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/892621
  11. I wanted to go a slightly different route with this rearrangement. More atmosphere, a dark, ambient piece that still has the trap feel. A few mixing/volume level issues here, but I consider it almost complete. Honestly, my biggest concern is that it doesn't resemble the source material enough to be accepted. Anyway, it's part of a planned album for S3&K. https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/890207 Feel free to suggest an alternate title.
  12. Hello everyone! It's me, and I am once again up to no good. Here is my latest work in progress. My goal is to recreate the original track closely and then add new elements on top!
  13. This is a mix I've been trying to solidify for a few months now. Imil has a captivating, homey feeling that welcomes you in and seats you next to a warm fire. I wanted to take it out into the frozen woods under an aurora lit sky. Poetics aside, this is the product of an amateur playing with equipment that's probably out of his league (EW Symphonic Orchestra and Sytrus), so I welcome any tips/hints/critiques that could help me make this a more complete song. Thank you, and enjoy! Original
  14. Hi! It's been a while since I've asked for feedback. I made an orchestral cover of the Mass Effect main theme. What do you think? Arrangement improvements? Mixing improvements? Instrument swaps? By the way, this song will not be submitted to OCReMix for consideration. Thanks! I appreciate the feedback. Update: My cover: https://soundcloud.com/willpisani/main-theme-mass-effectv10 Original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVm_ljDSdwA
  15. Hi! This is a pseudo-cover of the theme for Act 3 in Sonic Advance 3, Ocean Base. I already know what I can "improve" to make the track more musical but I'd like to hear your thoughts as well. Cheers! (Note: I posted this first in the wrong category of forums, but since my piece is a really loose remix and also has a lot of original material, I'm not sure whether I should delete my original post yet. Mods can delete the first one if they want.)
  16. Hello everyone! I've been trying to branch our with my remixes lately, so I tried more a dance style for this one I suppose. I'm still pretty new to this style of remix, so there's probably gonna be a lot of issues with mixing, mastering, and, well, probably everything. I tried to listen to see what I could find what was wrong on my own, but I just don't think I'm skilled enough to hear what else is wrong at this point. Newest version link: https://app.box.com/s/lvpvf96fu27nt0j7omtvlw400opx7iqi and here's a link to the source: again, I already know there's probably a lot of issues, but I really want to improve with this kind of music so hopefully I can get some help! Thanks!
  17. Due to the fact that this piece has two different sections that crash together, I'm strongly considering a gapless mix of all the main level themes and the boss themes as an album. I'm not going to make any other commentary, I'll just post the link now. https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/885604?updated=1570105545
  18. Right now, it's just a concept track made with SEGA Genesis sounds. Obviously, the finished product will not be like that. I've been thinking about this for years, and whether it would really work or not. So far, I haven't found any remixes like this. What is it like? An Insane Clown Posse inspired remix of Sonic 3's Carnival Night Zone music. I always thought that the song Hokus Pokus would blend well with Sonic 3's Carnival Night Zone music, so I finally started this project. I'd like to know if I should go forward with this, knowing full well that I could emulate the style of ICP to the T. Here's the audio link: https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/883481 It's supposed to loop, but in the preview, it's not doing so properly. It should be fixed when the audio is published to the site.
  19. Here is my concept of Norfair so far if Kenji Yamamoto had recreated it for use in Metroid Prime!

  21. This is a source I've been working on for probably the longest out of any of them. It's gone through hip hop, orchestral jazz, and now Gypsy jazz iterations. I'm gonna stick with the Gypsy jazz arrangement and take it to the end. Source: ReMix: Super Django Brothers
  22. Zelda OOT - Lost Woods (Dreamland Remix).mp3 I'm getting serious about polishing this piece of music and wondering what is it missing, if anything. Do I still need to fill it in more? I want to add acoustic percussion to do some of the drum n bass bits. I still need to do more mixing and make better use of reverb and improve the percussion a ltitle bit. Not sure what other polish I could add. My goal is to keep the minimalistic vibe and chiptune vibe, make it overall easy on the ears. ...not sure about the title.
  23. Lots of issues with this one right now, but I'll hammer them out eventually. Nonetheless, feedback is welcome. Here it is https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/878175
