  1. Hello all! Working on a doom/death metal remix of Golbez's theme and Cry In Sorrow from Final Fantasy IV. Remix: Deepest Night: Golbez: Cry In Sorrow:
  2. Hello everyone! I'm trying to do a remix of some of Bach's music with Gerudo Valley in an interesting way. There are at least three different Bach works referenced here. I feel I need to rework the drums and rhythms at some places. Also, I'm still working out the ending, but I wanted to share it here. Let me know what you think! Thanks, Rodok ARRANGEMENT / INTERPRETATION [ ] Too conservative - sticks too close to the source [ ] Too liberal - not enough connections to the source (too much original writing) [ ] Too much direct sampling from original game audio [ ] Borrows heavily from non-source material (eg. a theme from a movie) PRODUCTION [ ] Too loud [ ] Too quiet [ ] Low-quality samples [ ] Unrealistic sequencing [ ] Generic/cliche sound choices [ ] Drums have no energy [ ] Overcompressed (pumping/no dynamics) [ ] Mixing is muddy (eg. too many sounds in the same range) STRUCTURE [ ] Lacks coherence overall (no "flow") [ ] Not enough changes in sounds (eg. static texture, not dynamic enough) [ ] Pace too plodding [ ] Too repetitive [ ] Too short [ ] Abrupt ending PERSONAL COMMENTS (positive feedback, specifics on checklist criticisms, any other thoughts)
  3. I'm trying to work on a Trance remix of Metalman's theme from Megaman 2, but this is all I have so far. I'm hoping for some insight on what could possibly be done next or even some critique.
  4. Hi, OC ReMix! This year, Lara Croft celebrates her 20th Birthday and, since the franchise only has one remix on OCR (the great 'Adventure Is in the Air' by EmptyMy), I thought it could be nice to offer the lady a second one just for the occasion. I actually started a piano arrangement of Peter Connelly's 'Theme' (from 'Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation') and was wondering if you guys could give me feedbacks so I can try to make it OCR worthy (if it is possible to ^^'). Bare in mind that the song was not humanized yet -- I'd like to have the whole composition right before I eventually start recording a real-life piano play. Original Version: Remix: I wouldn't mind collaborate with any of you if you think this WIP could actually fit another genre better -- like a rock ballad or somehting -- and would like to help with the transposition Thanks in advance and Happy New Year to you all!
  5. Hey everyone. I'm back with one of my newer mixes. This one is from Hotline Miami (a game I've never played). I heard the soundtrack before I even knew it was a game. I love Electric Dreams, so I figured I'd try to remix it. I've only been working on it for a few hours, so it's still rough, but I'm interested in hearing your thoughts about it. Original song: Thanks!!!!!
  6. Hey everyone, I'm wanting to work a little to make my two songs for the Sonic remix album really good. This WIP is what I have so far, I feel the mixing is very sloppy at the moment with the bass being too close, piano being a bit plastic and dry sounding, and synth not having the most character. Please let me know anything you think could make it a bit cleaner sounding that I haven't found already! Really appreciate it! Remix so far:
  7. Hello OCRemix world. It's been quite some time since my last mix. I found this half-finished Storm Owl remix buried among my other files, so I cleaned it up and figured I'd get some feedback. Really appreciate any thoughts you have!
  8. Hello folks! Been stalking OCR for years now, listening to the glorious tracks that people have made in this community, and it inspired me to get into music years ago. Figured I'd give a remix of something a shot. Granted there's been a million and one remixes of the Corneria theme, but it was one of the few songs I could play well on a piano so I figured I'd give it a shot. Bit of a newbie with FL12, so I know the mixing is godawful as it stands, par for the course with anybody new, but I'm trying my best to learn. Big thing I was going for with the mix was the sense of adrenaline you'd get when playing any high-speed/intensity games and get that perfect streak. Going for a heavy-hitting, glitchy drum mix with strong basslines and orchestral elements. I know the piano could use some work but I'm not sure how to best go about this. Big questions I'm asking are the best things to do to balance out the mix, as well as bring out the original themes elements more strongly without taking away from the aggressive nature of the mix. Have been trying to record guitar Sixto style for the track, but haven't been able to get it to sound right in the mix. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Download link on soundcloud is lossless .wav. 60 megs. Many thanks in advance!
  9. Been working on this for quite some time now. Using all stock effects and a saturation unit that I purchased. Any feedback on sound quality or production/mixing/mastering would be appreciated. I'll make sure I check out everyone else's music, too. Thanks in advance!
  10. This started as a MNP entry, but changed the mood quite a bit more than I'd originally intended. I'm throwing it here in hopes of getting some feedback on what could be improved and where I could take the track from here.
  11. Amateur hour. I'm really not sure how to approach the mixing of this track. It's an attempt at performing Another Termina as a sort of acoustic ensemble, mainly using guitar, melodica, and penny whistle. There are most certainly more problems than the mixing, but right now that feels like the most frustrating part. To my ear, the melody doesn't seem to fit into the mix and feels "subdued". I've also listened to this too much, so I may just be crazy. In any case, I'm not sure how to handle that; I've tried carving some more space using EQ, but my initial attempts have gotten messy pretty quickly. Does anyone have any guidance on that? I think this track is comprised of the most recorded instruments I've ever tried to work with, and I think that's making it a bit tougher for me since the mix is "crowded". Anyway, any other thoughts, advice, or help is appreciated. I apologize in advance for trying to play the penny whistle! Thanks!
  12. Hi OCR ppl! I'd like some pointers on my newest WIP and, I give you a choice in which way to go on this. I'm in the process of remixing FF7's Anxious Hearts, but I can't really make a choice between two versions, so I thought I'd let you guys decide! Please let me know which version has the best approach. or It's still in it's early stages, so I can change mostly everything. Thanks in advance. NeoS
  13. Hi all, My first remix has recently been rejected by the judges panel, but luckily it maybe has a chance of passing if I resubmit after making changes. So, the tips they gave were mostly on MIDI-massaging and using different samples. In the time between submitting the original and receiving the feedback (a year) I have learned some new tricks and have bought a few new samples so I spent a few hours replacing instruments and also re-arranging stuff. I'd like to know how many fake-ness is still distracting in this updated version, and of course other tips are welcome as well =) . Cheers! Edit: working link =P :
  14. Hey guys, here is a remix that I arranged for the SFRG Competition. It is pretty much finished, just want to get some feedback before I submit to ocremix. ReMix - Sources are Cyber Maze Core and Dark Necrobat
  15. A chiptune interpretation of a great song by K.K. - source - remix (draft 1) -
  16. I was browsing in some of my old project folders and i found this Zelda piano remix attempt of Sheik's and Zelda's theme (and also Item catch, Lost woods at the end) i made about 3 years ago. I think i was experimenting with different harmonies and stuff. I don't know if i'll ever continue with this (probably not), but i thought i'd share it here, maybe someone likes it -Markus
  17. I'm having trouble with the background pad. I want it to have a nice midrange lull, but however I sculpt the sound or EQ, it ends up too quiet or clipping (and that's with the limiter on).
  18. I'm working on a remix of Undertale. WIP 2: WIP 1: I'm using "Your Best Friend" as the main source this time. Since this melody also appears in various other tracks in the OST, I'll try to incorporate elements from those tracks as well. Any feedback or criticism are greatly appreciated Source:
  19. 120 BPM - 128 BPM - Hello friends! This is actually the first of my creations that I feel like is realistically close to the standard of submissions to OCRemix, so I really want to make sure it delivers. This track has been one of my favorites for as long as I can remember. The original is great, the Black Mages remix is mind-blowing and the Distant Worlds orchestral rendition is superb. I wanted to take this track to another genre while simultaneously getting out of my comfort zone of "giving the original track some newer sounding samples," so here's the end result. It's my first EDM-influenced track and I had so much fun putting it together! It's gone through a few peer reviews to get to this point, but I am still very open to any sort of criticism to make it better. The name "Esthar Hills Cop" came when a friend pointed out that it sounds like something Harold Faltermeyer (writer of Axel F AKA the Beverly Hills Cop theme) would have written. I took the opening synth that usually cuts out after a few loops and made that my bass line throughout the majority of the track as opposed to the thumping quarter notes in the original. I spent hours running the bass through various effects until I finally said "screw it, let's try a vocoder" and strangely enough, it gave me exactly what I was looking for. Lesson learned - don't be afraid to try something unorthodox because you can always Ctrl-Z back to what you had, and you might stumble upon something awesome in the process. EDIT: 128 BPM version posted per recommendation of APZX. Original:
  20. Hi, everyone! It's kinda intimidating for me to post a topic here. Especially since a lot of my favorite ReMixers already precede me by sharing their own WIPs with you all before they quickly became really outstanding pieces of music. I recently worked on a remix of 'Ada's Theme' from 'Resident Evil 2' and, as I know it's far from being perfect, I was wondering if I could get some very helpful advices from you guys. Maybe it'll help me make the track … listenable. Original Source: Remix (ver. 2.0):'s+Theme+%28ver.+2.0%29.mp3 I do not expect it to be good enough to be submitted to OCR, I am way too bad at mixing and mastering to make it sound THAT great. I just wish I could end up with the best arrangements I possibly can for it. Thanks in advance.
  21. So, in Undertale, there's a character by the name of W.D. Gaster. Long story short, he's a character whose existence is only mentioned via manipulation of the game's code, and among these manipulations is actually for the guy, which I decided to try and remix into a full-fledged battle theme. Of course, the theme isn't exactly a sprawling and elaborate piece of music, so I have a lot of room to work with.Here's a link to the remix! This is most definitely not finished; there's still a bit of composition work I want to do, and I haven't so much as touched anything as far as mixing goes, so it might sound a bit muddled or clippy or other such odd bits and bobs. It's more of a proof of concept I wanted to share so I can get some feedback on what I'm doing right and where to go from here!
  22. Hi, everyone! I have been trying to do a few video game covers/remixes, but I have to say that I have been going through things mostly blind (or maybe deaf is the term?) Anyway, I am aware that this community has a reputation for offering great constructive criticism, so I wanted to submit something I did relatively recently. In terms of arranging, I usually err on the side of going too conservative with the original piece. For this one, I did a couple of things...I tried to swing the piece (whereas in the original, the notes are straight). Additionally, since in the game, there is another song that plays in close proximity to this one, I tried to integrate motifs from that song (the second youtube link below) in the latter half of the piece. I'm wondering if you would judge that it came out well? My cover: Original (main song): Original (spliced in song during the latter half of the cover/remix):
  23. Started to work on this today. This song is not fully done yet, only the main parts are done so far. I would like to know if there is any improvements to do for the mix. Remix: 10 October Version 12 October Version +added songs, Peace Returns (Minish Cap) and Zelda's lullaby (Ocarina of Time) 16 October Version +Intro changed, made it sound slightly different than the main theme +Changed charge/rise up part -Zelda's lullaby/Peace returns part is not done yet +New theme based on the Vaati Transfigured, after lullaby +Same theme plays on second rise up +Ending is almost same as Intro, except played +1 octave higher Original:
  24. Yep, been having a go at the compos and not much time for smaller projects, but I've been sitting on this one for a bit and I would love....1) to see it finished 2) to hear some lyrics over it...both lofty goals, but for now I'll just see what you think of it As always Thank You for listening!
