OCR01914 - Deus Ex 'Siren Synapse'

Recommended Posts

Awesome feat!

I guess sometimes you just need some balls to approach icons like normal if talented people (that they often enough turn out to be), and wonderful things can happen.

Enjoyed the track, quite faithful to the game's feel.

Beautiful work guys! It flows so cleanly from start to finish and it's one of those pieces that make me want to drop what I'm doing, open up SONAR, load up my favorite synth and just jam.

Great composition and rearrangement value, but I'm most impressed with the mixing a mastering. The highs are silky smooth without sounding dull, and the lows--even with that active bass line and full kick--are well defined and easy on the ears. Bottom line: you can crank the volume on this baby and it only gets better!

Congrats on a first for OCR and another great mix added to the pile :)

Awesome ReMix, guys. Glad to have you onboard Alex (and I must say BGC I am quite jealous!).

Maybe this will inspire me to start making music again... it's been a while.

I'm glad I actually read the email about this, Deus Ex has brilliant music and this collaboration is just as good. Loved it.

Yeah its polished, equalization wise, and it has has a couple cool parts. Gets a little too full nearing the center of the track, being overwhelmed by electronic drum or instrument sounds. The biggest problems, for me, were the bass drum and synthesized soloing. I like electronic, but these features came off a little to rave-like for me. (That's if you don't argue the difference between electronic and rave music.) Seems to me like the sheet music was negotiated over the internet. The end is bad ass though. I wish you would make a theme based off the sound of the last core part of the song. The last change that is purely the main title theme. Sorry if I am a bit critical, the game it is from is probably my all time favorite game, even with all the latest advances in gaming. Also, this was probably my least favorite theme within the whole game. I prefer the Paris Cathedral theme. If someone gets me the sheet music to that or the title theme, I'll remix it up.

Oh god, this track is my favorite one from the Deus Ex Soundtrack and I was listening to it just the other day. I'm the happiest man in the world with this ReMix. Thank you =)

I can't believe it - Dues Ex is getting some hardcore love on this site, and it's none other than BGC that's doing it (oh, and that other guy... Alex or something :tomatoface:). I am not kidding - ever since my CD was lost I've been heartbroken, so two weeks ago I downloaded it off of a torrent site (I owned the game - it's cool), and have been playing it ever since (last night, even - was up until 2:00am playing the damn thing).

I've been wondering why the hell no one remixed any of the tunage on this site yet and was going to take a stab or two at it myself. Maybe I still will (just not the Hong Kong tune, now that this is up :-P).

Oh, the mix was great, by the way - excellent collab, you two. Gotta love those voice clips in the beginning and the electronica love throughout :-P.

Hmm... a Remix of my favorite track in one of my sall-time favorite game, by one my favorite remixers and one of my favorite game composers... it doesn't get much better than that. Nothing really technical to say, I really do like this a lot... though I think I still prefer the smooth, minimalistic style of the original enhanced "OSPF" version.

Amazing

Also, clever name, too. Siren is what Brandon went by back in his tracking days :3 [or is he still tracking? I should read the interview!]

I wanted to point out that, in addition to The Synapse, this mix has some prevalent use of the Hong Kong dialogue music (which is not on the GotY soundtrack). Of course, the main Deus Ex theme is present as well.

Anyway, nice work, you two. =}

P.S. Alex is da bomb!
