Parker - Why Do I Need MP To Stomp This Goomba?

Hello, all. I have been enjoying this site for years, and been enthusiastic about remixing VG music for just as long.

As many of my "remixes" were just "cut and paste" jobs, I have graduated to using DAWS. Here is something I started some months ago on Cakewalk Music Creator 4.

I realized listening to the mixdown that I used instruments that sound alot like the original song. Rather than starting from scratch, I went back and focused more on stuff like volume tweaking, phasing and such. I plan on varying the kick, percussion, and melody some more, as well as adding some hi hats, once I get more free time (and after I get my hands on Adobe Audition).

Any feedback is welcome. Listening to the mixdown over and over again on my own headphones, I get the feeling that I'm missing any flubs that might show up if someone plays this in another medium (such as a car or stereo system).

it's off key, and quite dissonant. Use a scale reference for your different channels dude. Like each channel on it's own would probably be fine, but the bass thingy and the lead completely clash to make a dissonant sound. Make sure that each new transition part stays on the same key too. Moreover, this piece is pretty much a cover, not so much a remix. Sorry, but this needs a lot of work :S

I don't completely agree with HoBoKa.

I like it being dissonant. That's just a matter of taste and not a rule. Then again, there's a reason I studied contemporary classical music for a year.

The main I problems I see is it being way too repetitive. Even sticking so close to the source shouldn't be a problem with a mix like this. But like I say, it's just way too much of the same. Adding a break here and there doesn't change that.

Thank you for the feedback, I'll start from square one, and strive to make sure that all the tracks are in tune with each other.

I also have a idea on some new melodies/rhythms that are derived from the original song instead of just the exact sequence with different instruments.

I'm not sure if the end result will still be a "dance-y" song when I'm through.
