  1. Thanks to the talent of @TeraCMusic, @VelkkuEvilBastard, @pixelchips and @Dextastic, here is a remix from "Castlevania: Symphony of the Night" to celebrate the holiday season ! A huge thank you to everyone involved in this project -- you guys are the best ! HAPPY HALLOWEEN !!
  2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcKELb0KsMc Before I started producing this I read about Dracula and wanted to base the atmosphere and content of this song on that. I know Bloody Tears often is referred to totally different scenarios in the games but... Well, this is my way right now. I pictured his castle (the one in the background art), intimidating and terrifying (represented by the fearsome laugh at 0:29), I can't imagine the feeling if I should stand outside its gates and hear that laugh. I also pictured how lonely Dracula must be, and that he for almost an eternity has been a resident of that vast castle. Dracula himself says a lot about love and life of men in books and movies, how he envy the simple life of mankind and the short lifespan (Dracula has kind of eternal life) while he struggles against time and, most of all, against his own sanity. I sampled a sound (at 2:01) of night crickets, humming monks and finally a church bell sequently to create a feeling of nightly calm, spiritualty and Dracula's nocturnal life which I think plays a part in Dracula's nature connected to his sanity. The arrangement of this song has ups and downs, just like the sanity I picture within Dracula. It has hope and despair - what if Dracula just try to live among us, with us and create a "normal" life, seek love and dedicates himself to whomever he loves. Oh, but he can't, the eternal life that he has been given just don't fit among us. And his knowledge of the past comes with deep prejudices and certain ways of how one should treat and behave. Can he adapt to the present? It has anxiety and harmony - who can he love? Will he be forced to curse his loved ones with eternal life to commit to love and dedication? What if his life is a gift just as it is? The extraordinary abilities, eternal life and knowledge absorbed from ages ago until today. They are with no doubt useful. Can he make himself available to mankind without consequences or misuse? It has denial and acceptance - Dracula always had two choices, he could shield himself off from the rest of the world, or he could accept who he is, and fight for himself to be a part of the world of mankind. But will mankind ever accept such a terrifying creature, so dangerous, but yet so polite and mature. His purpose and actions must be very clarified and transparent, but can he be trusted despite that? To get more serious: On top of that, Dracula wants a Halloween party - every year, which my straight 4/4 beats in this song represents. The end of the song which is in half tempo represents how Dracula, despite all invitations sent, ends up dancing by himself in laserbeams, smoke and lit up candlelabras, high on drugs and wine, just floating through time within the walls of his castle in large halls.

  4. A remix I made for the Pixel Mixers CV Tribute Album. Used the melody from CV2 Dracula's Castle theme and made a song. Complete with original lyrics!
  5. Hi! This is probably my best cover out of eight that I have put up on Youtube and Spotify. Having hard time finding any kind of audience/community to share these so I figured this is the place where I can find some video game music fans that give opinions and hints! I try to be pretty faithful to the original arrangements and bulid my own stuff on top of that cos' it brings my piss to a boil when you have a metal remix of some tune and it's just filled with double kick and djent without anything to do with the original arrangment. So there's my modus operandi, enjoy! Original:
  6. I heard this while listening through Castlevania Soundtracks. I like the tune, but I would like an updated version of this the Game Boy track. Not so much as a remix as a remaster, to something one would create in a studio today. To make a comparison, to make Battle of the Holy from Castlevania Adventure on Game Boy (original Game Boy track) into this (modern remake to eShop) or even into this (full orchestral remake). If you are asking for a direction, I think the tune would work best as a "ominous situation character theme"; something that would play during a dialogue sequence (just like the original).
  7. I finished another one of my emulation style remixes. All sounds extracted from the original games as separate channels using sound emulation, then mixed together/distorted/stretched/manipulated. Sounds are from NES Castlevania 2, Super Castlevania 4, SNES Dracula X, Castlevania Bloodlines, and Super Metroid. Source:
  8. Hello OcR's, I've made a weird combination of Vampire Killer from Castlevania I with a touch of Beginning (Stage 1) from Castlevania III and synthwave.
  9. Link to The Track: https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/818804 Source: Bloody Tears [Castlevania I], Monster Dance [Castlevania II], Bloody Tears / Monster Dance [Smash Bros. Ultimate] Description: Managed to make this before the Smash Bros. direct, I hope I don't end looking like a fool hahahaha Anyways, I liked how this arrangement ended, so I figured out it would be a good thing to get a review and try to get it into OCRemix, I hope you like it!
  10. Though it was meant to be sung by the fairy in the Playstation game, I always picture Sonia singing this lullaby to young Trevor at the end of" Legends" ! I also thought arranging the piece in the same style as A2's "Chosen One" might be a good idea -- tell me if it is Original: Remix (Instrumental): Feedback is welcome !
  11. YES ITS BEEN DONE A MILLION TIMES BUT... I wanted to have a go. Also Kenichi Matsubara is a beast.
  12. Hello again! Checked out this game and thought it is awesome! The stage 4 music really hit me 'cos I think it's a kind of departure from the typical Castlevania music style and generally it has some catchy melodies and a strong beat. Tuned down to B with the guitars to get that low end booming! And also this is the first song I learned by ear, in everything else I've done I have used midis to help with the composting/arrangements. The original track:
  13. Hi, So I think the arrangement is close to done, but I need some advice on mixing. https://t.co/nbwZ1I6gc7 I'm kind of new to audio production, so I'm really open to any advice at all. I know there are places where I need to do something, but I'm not sure what. Thanks, I hope I'm doing this right. I'm kind of shy.
  14. Castlevania: Cacophony of Incarnation (CCoI) A Remix Competition Presented by the OverClocked ReMix Forums Introduction After being defeated by Simon Belmont, the spirit of Dracula floated in the void beyond time. After an unmeasurable age, he found himself returned to his body, but in a strange place. Reaching out, he found himself cut off from his seat of power, the eternal Castlevania! He soon discovered that, once again, fragments of the castle and the surrounding Wallachian countryside had been thrown together, along with some of his old minions--but only a handful of the monsters that once served him remained loyal, while the rest stood between him and his new enemy, the usurper of his domain. But he also found new allies! The heroes who had proved his bane time and time again have also been sucked through time and, sensing a greater foe than any they had ever faced before, now stand beside the former Prince of Chaos to defeat this mysterious enemy and restore Castlevania to its normal order! Current News Signups are now taking place. Anyone who wants to participate should post the names of their two teammates and their top 5 character selections, in order. Some characters have more than one source associated with them. If you choose one of those characters, also specify which of their sources you would like to use. You may choose only one source per character, and each character will be represented by only one remixer. Signups are still open, but the competition won't start until late January. More details forthcoming. Format This competition uses Darkesword's "gauntlet" format. Teams of 3 remixers will take turns remixing their character's theme with the shared theme of the week. The competition will be 12 weeks long. The main event will consist of 3 blocks of 3 rounds each, one announced per week but with a two-week remixing period, so that they overlap. This will be followed by a 1-week break and a 3-week final boss round. In each block, each remixer on a team will be that team's remixer for one week. The teams do not need to select a remixer ahead of time, as long as each member submits only one remix per 3-week block (which means that the third remixer of each block will be determined by default). The other remixers on a team are allowed to help with production and ideas, but the chosen remixer for a round must be the primary artist/arranger. Remixers can make use of other performers to play instruments, sing, etc., even those not involved with the competition, but these may not help in any other way. Submissions and File Names Entries must be sent to me by PM on the forums. Please include your team name and the round number in the subject line of the message. Please do not use a file-sharing service that includes ads or that changes the filename. Dropbox, Google Drive, and Soundcloud work well. If you use Soundcloud, please double-check to make sure you have set your remix to be downloadable. I will specify the filename for each round depending on the theme. Please read and follow the directions carefully when they are announced. Voting Rules and Guidelines After each week, I will create a voting thread in the public voting forum. Voters will rank their top three choices. A #1 vote is worth 3 point, a #2 vote is worth 2 points, and a #3 vote is worth 1 point. Competition members who vote will also earn their team 1 point just for voting. Team members may not vote for their own teams. This is primarily an arrangement competition. A creative arrangement that blends the two sources seamlessly, but with mediocre instrumentation and production, should be ranked more highly than an uninspired medley with flawless sound quality. Everyone must adhere to the Competitions Code of Conduct. Sources Participants can choose from the following characters and associated themes when signing up. They should choose their top 5 choices. If there are multiple picks for the same character, I will randomly determine who gets which pick. To prevent attempts to game the system, I will be be breaking 5th-place ties first and going backwards up the list. Dracula: Dance of Illusions Death: Evil's Symphonic Poem or Heart of Fire The Creature: Den of Worship or Walking on the Edge Golem: The Tower of Dolls or Stone King Golem Doppelganger: Riddle or Resonance of Malevolent Souls Isaac: Young Nobleman of Madness Joachim Armster: Melancholy Joachim Walter Bernhard: Dark Night Toccata Brauner: Esquisse of Violence Albus: Sorrow's Distortion Medusa: Cross Your Heart a.k.a. Crucifix Held Close or Stalker Akmodan II: Wicked Child or In Search of the Secret Spell Carmilla: Repose of Souls or Carmilla Elizabeth Bartley: Calling from Heaven Celia Fortner: Evil Invitation Stella and Loretta Lecarde: Dance of Sadness Simon Belmont: Theme of Simon Belmont Alucard: Dracula's Castle or The Tragic Prince Trevor Belmont: Beginning Grant Danasty: Clockwork Christopher Belmont: Battle of the Holy Richter Belmont: Divine Bloodlines Eric Lecarde: Iron-Blue Intention Nathan Graves: Awake Leon Belmont: Lament of Innocence Hector: The Curse of Darkness Soma Cruz: Castle Corridor Julius Belmont: Don't Wait Until Night a.k.a. Can't Wait Until the Night Sypha Belnades: Mad Forest Maria Renard: Slash Charlotte Aulin: The Hidden Curse Jonathan Morris: Invitation of a Crazed Moon John Morris: Reincarnated Soul Shanoa: An Empty Tome Teams Participants pick their own teams when signing up. They must also choose a Castlevania-themed team name, but they can wait until after their characters have been determined to do so. Please do not pick excessively long team names. Helping Out I'll also need artwork (album art and signatures). If that's up your alley, please let me know. I can cobble something together myself, but it won't be the prettiest, so if you can help out before the first round, that would be great!
  15. Hey all, This is a straight remake of one of my favorite vgm's. I'd be interested to hear any comments or criticisms! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRNimgWswAU
  16. What's up guys, I'm working on a VGM Remix album. Released a few teasers at my YouTube page. Teaser 1 - Donkey Kong Country - Aquatic Ambience Teaser 2 - Chrono Trigger - Opening/Title Theme Teaser 3 - Castlevania Bloodlines - Iron-Blue Intention Music styles will be well varied.. Would be cool to hear what people think, and perhaps find some new subscribers. All the best!
  17. I made this mashup using emulated sounds from Contra Hard Corps, Castlevania III, Castlevania, Super Castlevania IV, Castlevania Bloodlines, The Adventures of Bayou Billy, and The Goonies II.
  18. Hey all. I recently finished my metal arrangement of Vampire Killer from the original Castlevania game. Featuring live bats...(maybe fake ones). Enjoy!
  19. Hello! This is my first post here, I've just recently registered. I'm here to get some general feedback on my remix, I'll not submit it to OC ReMix. I'm an amateur musician (basically a hobbyist), but I really enjoy making these remixes, it's tons of fun! My remix (compressed YouTube video): Original produced audio file of my remix: https://www.dropbox.com/s/bsq5tydm4ssc75o/Ruthless Child - Wicked Child [NES Castlevania] Remix by Rodrigo M. Cucick.wav?dl=0 Original song: I hope you like it! Rodrigo M. Cucick.
  20. I wanted to produce a synthwave arrangement of the source but couldn't help using "organic" instruments for the leads and drums. I thought it could be interesting to try and find a right balance between synth and organic sounds -- keep those guitars, piano and drums and use only synths for the arrangements (which I'll start exploring way deeper when I find someone with a decent knowledge of synthwave music willing to help me ^^'). Original Source: Remix: I visualized Sonia telling her newborn son the tale of her adventures -- like it's a bedtime story -- when remixing this. Feel free to share feedbacks and whatnot :3
  21. Hello all, I first visited this site a couple of years ago and have loved it ever since. I have recently gotten into mixing myself thanks to this site, and I wanted to share what I made, so here it is. This is my first ever remix, I hope you all like it.
  22. Someone left a comment on one of my videos encouraging me to share my work with this community. A little bit of research has led me here, and I'm a bit confused about whether my stuff is fit for this community or not. Most of my work was done before I ever heard of this site. Anyway, here is a link to some stuff: Castlevania "Wicked Child": I could really do with some feedback as to whether the community is interested in this or if I am barking up the wrong tree. Thanks
