OCR01037 - King of Fighters 2000 "ReBirth"

Recommended Posts

I thought this was really good...I don't know what kind of feel you were going for exactly, Gecko, but what I got from it was a kind of a training song just before the fight kind of thing...Nice work.

All sounds are quite cool, though I'm not sure I'm into that NES-sounding lead synth that comes in sometime. Everything else sounds so pro, that that synth just sounds goofy. Good beats, nice guitar sounds, and other than that one synth, great synth sounds. Good stuff.

Heh, even though there's nothing terribly different about this mix or anything, I still really like it. I can't explain it. Maybe it's the overall polish. Maybe it's the clever synth work. Whatever it is, it makes this mix a part of my playlist.

And for the record, I like the NES-sounding synth. :nicework:

Ah, KOF 2K... the height of stage and character portrait art (and infinite combos :roll: ) of the series. This remix totally rocks. I've always loved the song (and the intro cinema it belongs to... K' is such a sexy man), and it's nice to hear it rendered in greater than MVS/AES quality sound.

Nice synths and phaser abuse.

RU OK? BUSTAH WORLFL!!!

Mr. Yamori is quickly becoming one of my favorite remixers (this started with the magnificant "Saturday Night Speedway") and this track only further improves my admiration for him as a mixer.

nice stuff. Very slick.

everything here sounds so good. all the synths, the effects, everything just sound so good. Im like amazed.

But i do have something itching me with this remix. The root never changes. It would be great if you continued the measures at the end of 3:02 and changed the root. But i need to hear the original first.. dont even know what the original sounds like. this really itches me that its always the same :(.

Good stuff from my boy, Gecko! I hope to hear some more house beats though ;)-

Pretty solid, as usual from Gecko. I have a few quelms, but none of them cripple my enjoyment of this mix. The first is the flanger on the guitar. It's hard to tell what notes it's playing beneath all the shimmer. Another is the TS404 gook synth - man am I tired of this sound. Maybe I've been playing too much F-Zero.

Good, but not what I personally look for in a piece of music, so I'm kinda biased.

I totally, completely love this remix, and it captures spirit and feel of the original dead on. Instrumentation, stereo position, and volume are all perfect as well.

I only have one complaint about it though. Its missing half of the main melody, which would've made it far more interesting. :\

Regardless, I'm highly appreciative of you giving SNK tunes some coverage with quality and style. I really hope to see more remixes from the greats of SNK from you in the future. :)

Simply awesome.. For one, it's rare to even find SNK remixes, so there's a plus. Also, I like the tinny sound samples! It's very reminiscent of SNK music!

Just a very, very listenable SNK remix. Nuff said!

I'm a big KOF fan (specially because it's musics and gameplay) and I must say this remix is as good as the original arranged version.

In fact, I think this music is a remix from the KOF 2K arcade port, so it isn't a complete version. But if you listen to the arrange one, present on the PlayStation 2 version, you'll note a big quality similarity.

You can download the full SNK's arranged version from here:

Congratulations! :wink:

I don't belive it. Why does this crap get universal approval? The flanged synths and the synth chord are OUT OF FREAKING TUNE WITH THE SONG! Out-of-tune-ness grates on people's ears! Plus, the song does not even include all of the original material, much less ADDS ANYTHING NEW TO THE SONG (aside from one synth chord and one choir chord). And one more thing... NES leads are completely unimpressive and stupid. 'Nuff said. Sorry, I just HAD to open a few people's minds and ears. The original arranged version is light years ahead of this, and that link that the last poster put up does not work.

Whose ears does this grate on? Sure not mine, and apparently, not on most other peoples'. I don't know none of yer fancy technical stuff, but I lurve this tune, it really feels like it has a lot of energy. Especially starting at 1:40 and going on to that build-up at about the 2 minute mark, it's just a fantastic "pump-up" song, and it carries through to the end. The ending, too, is great. The chorus is a nice addition where it's used, really brings those parts out.

I wish you'd post moar leik this, Gecko D: Sounds great.

I was totally feeling this until the NES came in. :-(

Great beats, great synthy bits, and a cool atmosphere, but that lead sound doesn't fit the song at all. :-(

Still a killer track, but i'd love to hear a revised version.
