  1. Hey everyone, I'm currently going through the tracks I want to submit and giving them another pass. This is the first one I would like some feedback on: https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fi/yh8fr78j7oc3dwekmv374/Day-Market.mp3?rlkey=okfbgxwvlfvdnetgnbaauiob5&dl=0 Original: Some notes: This track takes the original song and turns it into a much more upbeat version of it (hence the title). I changed the time signature for the A section to 4/4 but kept the B section in 6/8 and use metric modulation between the two sections. To keep things fresh I wrote an alternative A section for the repeat that features the two saxes playing different lines instead of playing unison.
  2. Hey all, Got some awesome feedback from the judges and was asked to resub, but as usually I might have overdone it Original track: The rejected mix: The latest version: https://files.jneen.net/ocremix/bwt2.flac wav version in case your browser can't open flac... -----> https://files.jneen.net/ocremix/bwt2.wav <---- EDIT: just to summarize what i did and the feedback i'm looking for: * i did change up the drums at 1:12, but i'm afraid they distract from the fun sfx layers now. it's still probably better than just continuing the break as-is, though, i'm not sure. * i added a whole new section at 2:22-ish where i resampled the previous sliced break and did more old-school chopping to create a half-tempo beat, and then added a brass section with other mario theme callbacks. (the non-8-bit version of the original in the game also does this with the smb1 ground theme, i just also added a bit of smb3 and smb1 underground). this section kind of ramps up the tension a lot for a track i'd originally envisioned to just kind of be * i got a good deal of feedback on the mix, which i did address some of - but i do kind of like the melody floating in over the hills with the bass and drums close by. maybe i'm just used to sitting in rhythm sections EDIT (19 Mar): updated the mix, fixed a few techincal problems (renoise tracker effects get hecked when combined with phrases sometimes...)
  3. This is a mashup between Lifestream and the themes for Cloud (i.e. the FF7 main theme), Tifa and Aerith. The original plan was to include all character themes, but squeezing them into the 6/8 meter and completely changing the harmonies around to fit the Lifestream backing proved to be a bit too challenging. Every character has their dedicated woodwind instrument: Cloud is the clarinet, Tifa is the oboe and Aerith is the flute. When a character's theme becomes the main focus they are also doubled by a solo string instrument in the same register order: Cello for Cloud, viola for Tifa and violin for Aerith. Every focused theme is also accompanied by fragments of the other character themes using their respective instruments. The fragments are sometimes stretched or squished, and sometimes only the melodic idea remains. Mostly for Cloud this can render the original song somewhat unrecognizable, for example at 2:18. And again for Cloud, because the main theme is so long and they had to be changed to fit, the two fragments at 2:46 and 2:54 may not immediately ring a bell because they are from completely different parts of the original and preserve only certain musical aspects. This is my first try at really integrating multiple songs into one arrangement, but I'm highly satisfied with the result. I think the piece in its entirety is cohesive enough to be perceived as one and not just multiple arrangements tacked together, so it should still qualify for OCR submission.

  4. Here’s a piece I’ve been working on. It proved a little tricky with the number of different instruments so I’d be curious to hear any opinions on how it turned out. Thanks for listening!
  5. https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/972058 Source The muted brass part at 1:20 is possibly too Low-Fi for the OCR Bar. Can someone confirm this? Any other production issues too?
  6. Glaringly obvious changes I could do. Vary up the second half. Make an actual ending or just fade out. Any other feedbacks?? I'm wondering if Guile's Theme would make a good mash-up...
  7. Hi! I've been a fan of OCRemix for a huge amount of years and I finally decided to start trying to make some music of my own. I made some music in my early teens but life shoved me in other directions and I've just recently found the joy of it again. I've always loved the title music for Grand Prix Circut from 1988 and I remember struggling with making a remix of it when I were younger. I found myself struggling with it again for the exact same reason: It's just a short loop with four variations that gets helluva boring really fast. I wanted to do a chiptune/metal hybrid and this is what I've come up with so far. Would love some feedback on all aspects of it really, I'm really new to this and have a lot to learn about everything. My goal is to submit this to OC-Remix Edit: Latest Version Cheers! /Gabriel
  8. Made a Hard Man cover earlier and thought I'd see if there was ways to improve it before submitting it. Also, I'm self taught on pretty much everything so it's always good to get some feedback from more experienced people. Here's the Youtube link. Thanks in advance!
