OCR01978 - Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures "The Electric Flute"

Recommended Posts

halc does it again! For whatever reason, these tunes really get me - and this is no exception. I love the synth work - top-notch stuff. Mark another one on the halc downloads from OCR count!

I can always find something to bounce to in any halc mix.

Perhaps it's the 3:14 AM coma that's hampering my hearing, but the zappy kick from 0:14 to 0:35 is about the only thing that felt off, or sounded rather.

The reincorporation at 2:06 is either a different kick altogether, or just doesn't bother me with all the other layers of ear candy on top of it.

Me like. Clicky that download button.

What an awesome remix!

It kinda makes me think of Kirby when I listen to it. That's not a bad thing at all, just imagine playing some classic Kirby to this song, it fits!

Anyway, freakin' sweet, well done!

This sucks. Chiptune blows. HAL is the worst mixer here.

I kid, I kid. Put it this way, I knew I was gunna like it so much that I just downloaded it before previewing it. Love the Zelda 3 strings- retro awesome. Production is fantastic as always. Mix = win.

Wow. This reminds me a lot of Sonic Advance (1), it kind of has that feel to it, lots of liberal use of the plain 'ole Square wave that gives retro games so much of their feel.

Fun piece, I really enjoyed it. I need to go hear it with Bass now, these speakers kind of suck. ^_^ It's shorter than a lot of my collection, but that's a good thing-- it doesn't have enough time to get old or boring.

This is a pretty straightforward take on the ALttP songs (I take it that a variation on them is found on the Gamecube title) in some ways. The melody is pretty much left untouched, and the instrumentation is where the creativity is found.

Nice nifty song!

lol.

Anyway... mix.

I love the touch of the lttp string sample in the intro.

So... this is basically dark world.

I don't think this sounds as clear as some of your other mixes in terms of mixing this time - its a little murky, but so slightly, I think some of the backing strings might be a little loud at times, sometimes I feel the leads get slightly lost.

That said, arrangement is tight, and it does sound great despite what I said above.

Willrock likey ^-^

I know what you mean! Something about the background arpeggios screams Kirby.

Great mix!

I totally imagine myself trimming the grass, looking for coins with this song. :-)

I started playing the track, opened the review thread, and happened to read this comment right around 0:15, when a chippy percussive swipe sound comes in. Now I'm picturing Links slicing up tufts of grass to the beat.

Nice use of LttP strings. And you called this a Four Swords Adventures remix. :whatevaa:

The FSA-based flourishes are cool, though, and the remix does have a decidedly frosty feel. Looks like I forgot to download this when it came out, but that will be remedied.

that's because it IS a Four Swords Adventures mix :roll:

okay halc

The intro reminds me of something out of Sonic GBA or Kirby, but that's par for the course with chip-tunes. I loved hearing the Dark World get a little shine time with this ReMix. Very fun to listen to.
