  1. **NOTE: Most of the discussion is taking place on a Discord Server, but regular project updates and claim/track status will continue to be posted here** Well, it’s been suggested a few times before, but this time it’s for real! Let's make it happen! Project Concept Golden Sun and Golden Sun: Lost Age, two games each representing half of a larger story, took gamers on an incredible journey through the rich and varied world of Weyard. Golden Sun saw you charged with the noble quest of preventing the destructive powers of Alchemy from being unleashed upon the world. Lost Age turned the tables as players found themselves in control of the first story’s antagonists, desperate to restore this ancient power. This story of discovery, exotic locales, forgotten histories, hidden motivations, heroism and desperation, was beautifully embodied in Motoi Sakuraba’s incredible soundtrack. Though it was well received by critics, Golden Sun never enjoyed the popularity of some of its other jrpg bretheren. Nevertheless, it continues to have a dedicated, and well-deserved fan-base. With the 20th anniversary of Golden Sun’s release coming up in in 2021, there could be no better time to bring this series and its music back into the light! Project Director: TSori Art Director: Orioto Sound Designer/Masterer: Rotten Eggplant Web Designer: djpretzel Remixers: Bluelighter Chernabogue Deedubs djpretzel fxsnowy Ganaé Glejs GuitarSVD Juke Ophanin pu_freak RebeccaETripp Reuben Spiers Rotten Eggplant Sam Dillard Sbeast Vylent Siolfor the Jackal Starphoenix StormSkuggan thevorace ThirdKoopa TSori 744 Performers (Primary instrument underlined): Deedubs - Piccolo trumpet, Trumpet Earth Kid - Harp, Piano, Vocals (female), Hammered dulcimer, Recorder, Ethnic percussion GuitarSVD - Ehru, Classical Guitar John Stacy - French horn, Alto, Tenor, & Bass Trombones.

This is where the bulk of the work will be! · Performers who are experienced with any type of instrument and have a high-quality recording setup. · If you're interested in contributing to one or more of the above areas, please get in touch with me. Claiming All remixers wishing to claim a track should PM me and/or post in the thread. We'll go from there. Once a track is claimed, an initial WIP deadline will be set. Deadlines are explained in more detail below. Be sure to check in at least once a month so we know you haven’t fallen off the edge of the map (see what I did there?). Genre Guidelines There is no basic genre one should adhere to when remixing tracks for the album but rather focus on a genre that would bring out the best in the track chosen. That gives remixers a lot of leeway in remixing a song the way they want with final product approved by Album leadership. Vocals in songs are also okay if implemented well. Using multiple source tunes from the soundtrack as fine, as long as the primary focus of the remix is on the core track list. The ultimate organization of the album will be done in such a way that "tells a story". Its my hope that a wide variety of remix styles will reflect a "journey" through a varied world. Collaborations are highly encouraged! Also, the intent is for this to be an official OCR album, so remixes must meet the appropriate standards. We have 3 OCR judges who have volunteered to be evaluators for completed remixes in order to ensure those standards are met. Deadlines *UPDATED 4/29/19* Given the quick pace with which everyone has been doing their remixes, the following NEW deadline structure is being instituted We are shooting for a release at the end of 2019. That said, ALL finished WAVS will be due no later that October 1, 2019, whether they have already been claimed or claimed later. That should give us enough time to master and go through the release process with OCR. AN initial WIP will still be due one month after your claim date (unless it runs past the final deadline). It just needs to show that you have started working so we can be confident that you intend to finish! Missing a deadline without communicating with the project director (for a month or more) could result in your claim being dropped! That said, life happens and we want this project to be the best that it can be! Stay in touch, and we will make it work! I'll be reaching out to everyone every 2 or 3 weeks to just check in too. Lets see if we can get this album out to the public in less than year! The Track List/Claims *UPDATED 4/29/19* Golden Sun/ Lost Age has an ENORMOUS soundtrack. For that reason, we’re focusing on just the first two entries of the series and excluding Golden Sun: Dark Dawn. If you’ve got an overpowering need to get something from Dark Dawn in here, PM me, we can talk bonus tracks, but let’s keep the focus on GS and GS:TLA Even with Dark Dawn excluded there are nearly 100 tracks in the soundtrack. I’ve tried to reduce it down to something more manageable, and now that we have a respectable number claimed, with WIPS, I am openign up claims on all remainign tracks. We will get as many as we can before the final deadline.

[Fusion Dragon] ***Project Update - January 27, 2019*** I will be posting project updates like this on the 27th of every month (and likely more often). I decided I would do the first one as soon as we had a track claimed by someone other me. Thanks to Ganaé, now we do! Darkesword has also graciously offered his services as an evaluator once the WIPs start coming in. I've lengthened the WIP deadlines a bit. Also, in regards to track claims i plan to cut any unclaimed tracks 5 months after the original post was made. That's June 15th of 2019. Hopefully they will all be claimed well before then, but if not, I just don't want the project to end up dragging on and on because a couple tracks are still open. ***Project Update - February 2, 2019*** We are picking up some momentum now! It's my pleasure to welcome GuitarSVD, Ophanin, ThirdKoopa, Sam Dillard, and Glejs as remixers, as well as EarthKid, Sixto, and Guitar SVD as performers, and also Orioto as our art director! I have been talking with several other ReMixers who are making their track selections now. I expect we've got quite a few more claims right around the corner! (not bad for two weeks in!) *** Project Update - February 6, 2019 *** Well it's only been 4 days since the last update, but there has been so much happening in that 4 days its warranted. We now have an album title! Golden Sun: A World Reignited will breathe new life into the Golden sun franchise just as the elemental lighthouses did into Weyard. We also welcome remixers: Bluelighter, Deedubs, pu_freak, RebeccaETripp, Rotten Eggplant, and Silent Ice. Rotten Eggplant will be taking on the mastering role for the album Deedubs and Joseph Jung have also joined the album as performers We have had 16 of 36 tracks claimed and 6 WIPS submitted.We are building some incredible momentum and the first few WIPS are nothing short of fantastic. Look out OCR, Golden Sun: A World Reignited is headed your way! *** Project Update - February 17, 2019 *** This week saw a bit quieter progress as everyone has settled into working on their tracks.Even still, we have new WIPs from Bluelighter as well as my collab track with guitarSVD. We also welcome thevorace to the project with his claim of the Doom Dragon theme. That's 17/36 tracks claimed with more on the way! ***Project Update - February 27, 2019*** We welcome 3 more remixers to the project: djpretzel, Chernabogue, and StormSkuggan! djpretzel has also taken on the role of web designer for the project! That is all staff positions filled as well as 20/36 tracks claimed. Both boss battle grab bag slots have now been filled, so the boss battle claims are now closed until further notice. They will be re-opened after the remaining 16 tracks have been claimed. More claims to come! ***Project Update - March 11, 2019*** Two months into the project, and the WIPs are steadily rolling in. Reuben Spiers has joined the project, bumping up the list of claimed tracks to 22/36. Ophanin has also submitted our first completed remix, which is awaiting final evaluator approval. We're moving steadily forward! ***Project Update - March 19, 2019*** WIPs continue to trickle in steadily and we have two new claims! RebeccaETripp has claimed a second track after finishing her first arrangement, and we welcome Sbeast to the project with a claim of Mars Lighthouse! I've also renumbered the tracks to account for a combo remix of two of the core tracks and changed a couple of the names to match those currently listed on OCR. Only 12 tracks left on the core list. If you're reading this and thinking about claiming a track, there's no time like the present!! ***Project Update - March 27, 2019*** Another big week as several more fantastic WIPS have been submitted! The first large collab is coming together behind the scenes. Stay tuned! We also welcome 3 new remixers to the project, fxsnowy, Juke, and Starphoenix. That brings us to 26 claimed tracks, 18 of which have already had WIPs submitted! Only 9 unclaimed tracks left. Get 'em while they're hot! ***Project Update - April 6, 2019*** Alright, folks, we are now up to four finished tracks submitted!! FOUR!!! Not even 3 months into the album. Huge salute to Ophanin, Sam DIllard, and Deedubs for putting together some fantastic remixes, and really starting to give some shape to this album. We've got several other tracks close to completion and many more not far behind them. Keep up the good work everyone! ***Project Update - April 18, 2019*** It's been a little while since the last update. There's not a whole lot new to report at the moment, mainly everyone is still churning away at their remixes. We got Initial WIPs from both Chernabogue and Rebecca E Tripp (on her second remix for the album no less!). It also sounds like we have at least two more finished remixes in bound in the next couple of weeks. Keep an eye out for a deadlines/ claims restructuring (as well as a couple more source tunes) in another week! More updates to come soon! ***Project Update - April 29, 2019*** It'Apologies all, I was traveling for work and missed my usual 27th of the month update. This one is BIG though! First of all, things are progressing very well. we have 27 claimed tracks, and 25 with WIPs of some kind submitted. Wow. There are 5 complete, evaluated, and approved tracks , with a few others not far off at all. In fact things have been moving so smoothly and quickly that I've done a bit of a revamped to our claims process. ALL remixes now have a final deadline of October 1, 2019. I think it's very doable and it will allow us to get this album out THIS YEAR. I will still hold the current tracks to any checkpoints they have before then. Future claims will have a 1 month initial WIP deadline, but other than that, just the final deadline. Tracks will be added to the core list as they are claimed. Lets see how many we can get finished by October 1st (I'm hoping for 40). Additionally ALL grab bag tracks are open for claim again. I have also add a few NEW ones. ***Project Update - May 27th, 2019*** It's been a while since my last update. Life is busy these days but the project is continuing to charge forward! 744 has joined the project with a complete remix. That plus the remix guitarSVD and I have just completed bumps us up to 7 finished tracks. Orioto has also provided our first complete piece of art work as well as a concept drawing for the album cover and ideas for a third piece of artwork. Several remixers have submitted further developed WIPs and we continue to be on pace for an October final deadline. There are a lot of tracks still claimable above. Join the party! ***Project Update - June 17th, 2019*** It's time for another update, folks! Chernabogue has sent us complete track #8 and there are more coming! Deedubs, Ophanin, and Vylent have all jumped back in with another claim, brinigng the grand total up to 30! Can we make it to 40???? There are plenty of great tracks left! Also, I am pleased to announce that "Golden Sun: A World Reignited" is now an OFFICIAL OCR ALBUM PROJECT. Look out! The Golden Sun is rising!
  2. Hello guys! I'm Hashel the founder and album organizer for the Pixel Mixers community! We are now working on what should be our 23rd or 24th album (depending on how fast we work on stuff), a tribute to Final Fantasy IX. (Current list of our albums so far => https://pixel-mixers.com/2018/04/08/pixel-mixers-albums-list/) We do free stuff (so not licensed) and we already have someone for the art (Leo Mind Waker) and mastering (Ro Panuganti). The goal would be to have at least one cover/remix by song from the original OST (songs from the OST+ are allowed but would end on a "bonus disc") but for that we'd need a bit of help Here is the sheet, with tracklist on page 1 and rules on page 2, as you can see we got most of the songs claimed already (you may recognize some names from OCR and other communities) => https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/13K3di3vP2FRzDdi68NoE7J6YwPEzKNJIeAlMZeOYNPM/edit?usp=sharing The general rules are: - Deadline: 31st of March (few more days will be allowed to let ppl polish their mix if needed, but we MUST release it in end of April / start of May) - Songs must be 2 minutes long minimum (exception for the very short songs, like the sleeping jingle) - Any music style is welcome, live recording or programmed VSTs. Just do not use anything from the game itself please - You can go crazy creative with the arrangements as long as the original is still "easily" recognizable. - Songs must be sent unmastered and with the speak set around -6db Once all the songs from the main OST (you still can claim songs from the OST+ if the remaining songs from main OST do not inspire you and that duplicates are not allowed yet) is the will be claimed, we'll allow duplicates for ppl who are not already on the album and ppl who finished their 1st track (3 track maximum as main arranger but you an be a guest on as many tracks you want) If you want to have an idea of what we do, here is the trailer of the FFVI album we did last year: Okay so i hope i haven't forgot too many things, if you have any kind of questions, feel free to ask me, if you want to claim a song just tell me in here or private =) Hope to see some of you making cool tracks Thanks!
  3. Hi! I had been working on a remix of this song from Robocop Here's an example of an SS13 version and here's one of the original renditions. It's a fairly simple mix, I've basically played harmonica for fifteen years and I know a little bit of harmonica. I've taught myself some keyboard, and that's what I use to make backing tracks- kind of an older, cheaper Yamaha however, and I have to record the keyboard via a mic, it doesn't transfer directly out onto my PC, and it's MIDI samples I'm pretty sure, so between my lack of experience there and the unnecessary middleman of a mic I don't produce the best backing tracks. I asked for feedback here, and was recommended to seek out a collab so someone could make a backing track for it, since as I'm playing the harmonica live, a live recording of the banjo and guitar tracks would improve the production value quite a bit. The song as I've made it so far is here I'm self taught in music so I don't have the best grasp of music theory or anything, however these are the tracks for the banjo and guitar isolated, and these are the notes I played in making them(no clue about sheet music really, sorry). The key of the song is A. The chord progression is A-C#-E, F#-A-C, D-F#-A, and E-G#-B repeating The guitar isolated sounds like so- it's played like: A C#-E A C#-E, A C#-E(sustained), F# A-C F# A-C, F# A-C(sustained), D F#-A D F#-A, D F#-A(sustained), E - G# - B(picked) The banjo isolated sounds like so- it's played like picking the individual notes: A - C# - E - C#, A - C# - E - C#, F# - A - C# - A, F# - A - C# - A, D - F# - A - F#, D - F# - A - F#, F - G# - B - G#, repeating. --- I apologize again for the amateur way I wrote out the music, I know it's something very basic but it's really the extent to which I can play keyboard. Thank you ahead of time for any and all interest! I'm not exactly looking to pay for anything, but I'd be glad to offer playing harmonica for a track of yours if you'd like. At the moment I have three decent diatonic harmonicas in the keys of A, G, and C. G is the lowest, A is a little higher, and C is the highest. Basically, you can buy specialty harmonicas that are lower or higher if you so choose- say that the C diatonic is in the middle of a piano, you could buy a C diatonic that's tuned an octave down or an octave up. As an example though, if you wanted a lower pitch thing in the key of C, I could for the most part play that using my G harmonica.
  4. Ok so I'm pretty good at making music. But my computer isn't that strong so if I use high quality VST's it lags. So I'm looking for a partner. Basically, someone who can turn my MIDIs into high quality pieces. The other thing is, when I am composing, the song starts off very good but then I don't know where to go with the song. So the cool thing is, you are welcome to extend or modify my music in any manner. So, how do this work? Basically, you do whatever you want to my music, then submit it here. If I approve your modification of my piece, both you and me get unlimited rights to the music. If I don't approve, then you do not get the rights to my song, and I will not use your modified version of my song for any purpose, unless you give me permission to do so. So basically, you get free rights to my music as long as you do good with the song. It's kind of like a win win and you get a composer working for you for free. If there are multiple submissions which are good, we both share the rights (between us, but the other 5 users don't share between them. So for example, if John and Mary gave me their submission, and I thought both were good, then John and me would share the rights, and Mary and me would share the rights, but John would not have the rights to Mary's submission.) If you are interested and want to begin, either post a description of your talents underneath, or send me a PM.
  5. Hi, I'm working on a project that my co-creator and I have named Devil Hunter: MIyumi. This is a video game in the vein of the old side-scrolling action games from the 80s and 90s, which is a genre we feel that has kind of fallen by the wayside in recent years. The game is going to be very similar to the Ninja Gaiden series on the NES with elements of horror akin to the Castlevania series and the action platforming of Strider 2. The game will be set in the late 1800s in Japan and will involve a young Devil Hunter named Miyumi and her mentor Shin. The Devil Hunter tribe basically protect Japan from the Yokai (japanese demons). Our main villain, a japanese succubus, attacks the Devil Hunter village while our 2 protagonists are away training, setting up a quest for Miyumi and Shin to track down the Yokai and save her family/clan. We've already fleshed out a lot of the story and I have bios written for the different characters and placeholder images. Right now I'm coding the game myself using the Unity Engine and the game is actually playable at the moment, though I'm still programming specifics for the characters, special attacks, enemy AI etc. I'm shooting for the end of March or April to be completely finished with the engine. We have already contacted many graphic artists and designers, and have assembled a great team, but I'm ultimately trying to turn this project into the establishment of a legitimate indie game studio, so I want to assemble the most talented people that I can. While I have a lot of the graphical aspects covered, I have no experience composing music. Right now I have a few pieces of placeholder music for use while I'm programming just so I can get an idea of how it will look and sound when its finished, and all of the tracks I've used came from OCRemix. I figured if I was so taken and inspired by remixes from members of this site, then this would be the place to try and recruit some talented people who obviously love creating music. I have a very broad taste in music and I would like to incorporate some actual instruments for some parts and "kick ass" tunes for others. The game will also have cinema scenes like the original Ninja Gaiden Trilogy on the NES, so I'm approaching this more akin to a film than I am to a video game. I want the visuals and the music to sync up to create a complete experience and I can provide examples of music that has inspired me. We are rapidly approaching the point where I will start crowd funding the game and it is my intention to have a completed opening cinema, first stage with functional boss character, and closing cinema that will eventually be the transition from stages 1 to 2. As project manager, head writer, and lead programmer, I made a decision that we could not attempt to crowd fund off of the work of others, so I need to find people who want to create original music that we can use for the proof of concept, which will be fully playable. So right now I need 3 to 4 tracks total, but eventually it will be closer to 20 to 25 depending on how many stages we use and if there is any DLC provided. I'm a particular fan of the original Ninja Gaiden soundtracks from the NES, the Megaman X series (particularly 2 and 6), Castlevania series (like SotN and Rondo of Blood), and other games in different genres including RPGs like Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, etc. But I'm not locked into a specific genre of music, so I'd like to discuss the project and see what types of original compositions we can come up with. Like I said previously, I'm trying to build a fantastic team that can do everything in-house. I want to have composers and musicians on staff who share my love of gaming and visual media who can then grow their own talents any way they see fit. I've also created a closed group on Facebook for my development team so that we can bounce ideas off of each other without worrying about external input unless we ask for it. I'm going to close with a message I posted to that page that hopefully conveys the seriousness of my intentions. "I know this project is going to be a lot of work, and I have no issue compensating anyone for your time and effort. I really want to take care of everyone as best I can once the game is completed. Which is why I'd like to work it out so that everyone involved gets a percentage of all future sales and re releases of the game. And I want to build the studio so we can all work together to make awesome games and even branch off to comic books or other forms of media and make a decent living doing it. I will make you this promise, if you will help me and make a little now, I will do everything in my power to push you as high as I can off of this stepping stone that we're building. Most game developers start off with funding before they start programming. I just started programming because I need something of meaning in my life and I was going to do whatever I could do to get there. I'm tired of working for other people and I'm ready to "kick down the doors" of the video game industry. So I'm going to make this happen and nothing is going to stop me. And anyone who comes on the journey with me is going to be as successful as I can possibly make them. So I'm glad you're along for this trip. And again, I promise you I will make it worth the journey, especially once we can start crowd funding and I have money to spend. Your art/talent is worth it, because if I didn't feel it was, I wouldn't have reached out to you in the first place. Every one of the people I've gathered around me have skills and talents that better this team. You all bring something special and unique to the table and I can't do this without you. This is not going to be an easy undertaking. If anybody wants to get off the roller coaster, feel free with no hard feelings from me. But I hope you see value in my vision and that you will continue to walk with me. I hope you all have a great rest of your week my friends. And thank you for helping my dream become a reality." If you're interested in what you've read, please feel free to message me here or at duke2go@gmail.com. Eventually I'll establish an official website for the project and finished game, as well as a specific email address, but right now I'm a freelance writer and it is easier for me to check my emails all at once rather than trying to keep up with 2 or 3 different addresses simultaneously. I apologize for no images in the thread, but if you're interested please message me and I can send you preview videos of where the game is currently and other concept art we've come up with so far. Thanks for taking the time to read all of this and I hope that we can work together to build something special. Mike
  6. Hello all, TheChargingRhino, here. I am in need of several people to help me create my newest idea for my bonus track in the Star Fox album, Clipped Wings. Who I need: Guitar, bass, synths, drums, possibly a piano, singers. I shall come up with the lyrics and do a practice test, so those that are singing know what I want the overall lyrics to sound like. The song is now called "(We Got) Clipped Wings" and is going to a mostly first person account of the Battle of Corneria. Track source is Corneria from Star Fox. Verse # 1 (for those of you interested.) "We've been fighting a war, a war that has no end. We've tried every-thing, we might be on the mend. When the fighting stalls, I look over the land. See nothing but destruction, isn't war so grand? The General's called me in, said that there's one last thing, to call in the team, the five of us, to bring down the king. I looked at him, he looked at me, and here's what I said- 'Sir, with all due repsect, why us?' And he replied, 'Because you're the best pliots, my dear. Star Fox can't be beat, and I want you to fight Andross' forces.' So the old hound took me to the hangar bay, where the ships were in a line, and he said, "We've been working hard, Krystal - listen to them whine!" And as I watched the ships wheel out, one of them caught my eye - A sleek black fighter, that one was mine. Then the call was made, for us to take to the skies. As I left Pepper's side, I saw tears in his eyes. And as the Arwings went up blazing, I thought, 'Lets give em a hell-raising.'" I have plans for this to be a rock ballad before the actual rock portion starts. If you are interested, please PM me!!!

  10. This is for the nearly completed Valkyrie Profile Death Metal album. It's a section of less than a minute. It requires an arpeggiated chord and a solo on top of it. Neither part is difficult. A high beginner or a low intermediate player could play it. You get your name on my sweet-ass Valkyrie Profile Death Metal album if you help out. I'll provide tabs and an audio sample. Send a private message or reply here if you want to join the album. Thank you very much for your time and consideration. Sincerely, The Legendary Zoltan
  11. Last summer I had much more free time than I had ever had before. As a result I decided I would begin work on a youtube channel producing arrangements and remixes of video game music for (french) horn ensemble. I would write the arrangements, then record both video and audio, do editing, and have a video ready to be released on a regular schedule. Not long after starting, I decided that keeping a regular schedule would be more work than I could do as my free time would quickly run out. Quality was selected over quantity, and I would save these arrangements for future use, possibly on OCR. I wouldn't get involved with the OCR community until December of 2016. My first submitted remix to the site was a success, so I figured out I had found a home here. As a horn player, I've been told by so many people that the horn is a classical instrument, and it is not possible to play in other genres. I then proceeded to play professionally in a jazz ensemble, rock band, funk group, and other non professional ventures in other genres such as a gospel choir and mariachi band. I am not the only horn player who has done this. However, the view that the horn is a strictly classical instrument is still very common, and I believe that it is a very limiting viewpoint. There are many horn players who do not feel they are capable of venturing into new areas because they do not think it is possible, and there are many more who want to venture but are held back by teachers, peers, etc. I was told that I couldn't play jazz, a genre I was raised on, and the horn was literally taken away from me when I tried to play. They told me I ABSOLUTELY HAD TO play on trumpet or trombone, then when my skill level was so much lower than it was on my primary instrument, basically told me that I was no good at jazz. I want to contribute to the solution of this problem. My contribution will be a series of arrangements for horn in many genres. This is where the community comes in. As it stands now, I have 4 arrangements that are complete and awaiting recording, and others that are in various stages of completion. I would like to make a whole disc's worth of music, however I would definitely not object to having two or more. I am looking for collaborators on this project. What is the purpose of this project? The purpose of this project is to produce music with the horn as a central feature. One of the arrangements being recorded is a rock track. There are 8 horn parts, and a collaborator is recording guitar, bass, and drums. I recorded all the horns and programmed piano. The horns do most of the heavy lifting when it comes to presenting themes. The other instruments are primarily support, however they are invaluable for the end product. For a different track, it would be different, such as working with a vocalist. If that were the collaboration, they would be the primary feature, with the horns supporting. I am a little split at the idea of having a solo wind instrument other than horn as a feature, however I am open to suggestion. After producing this, there will be a body of work that can be referenced to say "Yes, the horn can do that, and yes you can do that too!" Or for arrangers, composers, or remixers to see what is possible and create new works inspired by this. What would be needed from a collaborator? There are two ways to contribute; as an arranger or a performer. Arrangement contributors would write the arrangements to be performed. Most of the work would be left to the collaborator, and I would edit minor details as needed for playability or effectiveness. Contributing as a performer could involve arranging as described above and also performance with the voice or another instrument. Performers would be highly encouraged to participate in the arrangement process to highlight their strengths. Non musically, an artist to design artwork for the album would be needed. What genres are possible? Many genres are possible. Due to the nature of the project, some genres are more difficult than others. For example, predominately electronic genres such as EDM or dubstep that are driven by synths would be much more difficult to keep the acoustic horn as a central feature. However, if those genres could be made to feature the acoustic horn I would be more than happy to oblige. I have performance experience in jazz, rock, funk, gospel, mariachi, country, and others, and have worked in even more genres not as a horn player, so gaining familiarity would not be much of a problem. I am looking at the London Horn Sound albums for reference. I am excited to work with people on this project, and am even more excited to see what can be produced!
  12. Hello, all! I am currently working on an original song that might turn into an EP and I am in need of a tenor and/or alto saxophonist and a violinist who are willing to collaborate! I can't really afford to pay as I am a poor bastard, however, you will definitely be credited for your work. I will also be forever in your debt and be willing to give you a hand on your projects as well (my specialty being electric guitars and composition). The parts for the saxophone and violin have already been written and produced with midi instruments. I now need them to be recorded with the real deal; however, if you feel like a section can be improved upon then feel free to give me your input! The genre is instrumental rock with string, synth and jazzy elements. If you like what your hear and want to participate feel free to reply to this post or PM me. I will then give you a version where your instrument is brought up in the mix to help the accelerate the process. Here is the draft of the current song I'm working on. Thanks and Enjoy! http://www.mediafire.com/file/g63akvicszv62l9/JRock+Song+v1.7.mp3 - Matt

  16. EDIT: The position has been filled, thanks to all that inquired! Hi OCRemixers! I am this guy and I'm looking for a really good keyboardist to be featured in an upcoming song of mine: Big Bad Baby Bowser from Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island (the final boss theme). I have a version of this I recorded back in 2011, but the sound quality and playing are pretty meh and I feel like I could do a much better job at it now, so I want to give it the remake it deserves. You can check out that version to get an idea of the skill level I'm looking for (basically, able to play the organ line from the Final Boss theme, and also the organ line from the Big Boss theme which I used in the middle of that remix, doesn't have to be note for note of course but relatively close!). I really don't practice the keys very hard these days (the past few years actually, haha), so it's become a bit beyond my keyboard skill levels at this point. I figured this could be a great opportunity for someone else to collaborate with me and also get some exposure. Also must be video-friendly! All of my songs go on Youtube with videos so it's a must. Also should have a good quality camera, doesn't have to be top-of-the-line or anything.. just not potato tier. xD If you think you have what it takes and would like collaborate and be featured on my channel, please send me a PM along with some of your stuff that I can check out. Hope to hear from you soon!
  17. Considering how great the series' soundtracks are and we didn't get a new remix since 2009, I think it could be nice to produce another (set of) mix(es) for this awesome franchise. I know I'd like to do an arrangement of "Destiny Begins [Episode 1]" from Panzer Dragoon Zwei myself. Unfortunately, I have lots of trouble writing a MIDI to prepare the ground, so I'd like to know if anyone out there would be interested in helping me sequencing one -- and perhaps collab on the mix eventually, if you want to :3 Thanks in advance!
