[April fools!] OverClocked ReMixanator Release!

Recommended Posts

Finally, no more bugging egotistical human remixers to do a song I want to hear remixed, ReMixanator does it all plus more! Honestly, Ice Cap solo piano with female vocals is the greatest thing mankind will ever hear anyway.

ReMixanator has actually saved my life. I was feeling a little bleak earlier today, having slogged away for hours and hours working on a remix for Michael Owen's World League Soccer and just not getting anywhere. ReMixanator came along and said 'hey, what the hell are you doing? I've got everything you need right here in a few easy steps' and now I no longer want to end what seemed like a bleak existence. Thanks ReMixanator!

I can't believe how naïve you guys all are. I mean, come on.

Now we can start submitting algorithms instead of remixes. And then djp will eventually not be able to keep up with submissions, and there'll be a judges panel... and the standards will rise.... and then... profit?

I'm glad you guys are digging the female vocals! I got so many collab requests that I simply couldn't handle them all, so this saves me the pain of having to turn people away. No more hurt feelings, no more stalkers, and no more threatening emails... I can't tell you how lucky I am to have the ASS now.

Damn. I'll go back to stalking Ricki Lake and begging for collabs again.

Wait, is she still alive?

At first I thought ReMixinator was a good thing that would make things easier and better for everyone. Then I realized that I now have no purpose.

I'm quitting life. Where can I buy a gun?

I'd like to express an error I found with the ASS. I wanted to listen to some Metal Terra totally maxed out, but when I got the remix, the pure vocal talent of Larry Oji was missing. I truly hope that the ASS will rectify this situation soon.

EDIT: And the base track for Schala Metal has the guitar riff from Terra Metal in it! How much did you say you paid for this ASS, djp? I think you took it up the ASS with this endeavor.

Wrong forum, try Help & Newbies.

I don't understand why so many people are against this. The Remixanator is probably the best thing that has ever come to OC Remix. I've already listened to all the songs generated from it and I just can't get enough of it. Everything is so incredible, especially those female vocals. It's some of the best singing I've ever heard. Certainly as good as the best of the site.

The only drawback I see is that we'll have to wait until next fall to get another source tune added. I can't wait that long!

Maybe we should put together a petition to get DJ Pretzel to add a new tune faster than that. Maybe, I don't know, in a couple of months?

Favorite song right now: Smooth IceCap with Female Vocals. That track is just gold!

Why not you should work for me, boyschek?

I mean, it's roughly the same thing, but that way you'll be in America, where everyone has guns. :)

This pisses me off.

I spent all those years lurking around the internet looking for all the right torrents to get Reason, Sibelius, Reaper and FL for free, to get myself in the door here; man, I wanted to BE somebody, like DarkeSword

But no, my dreams are over, OCR sold out, and djpretzel is probably going down on McVaffe whilst the latter is fellating Darkesword as of this typing.

Because that's the ONLY way I saw this getting through.

Jesus, this is like when my parents broke up.

Is this how it truly feels to be a remixer? :shock:

It feels so..

so...

...amazing.

It's like I'm walking on air.

I finally feel truly loved. I never want it to stop.

I'm quitting life. Where can I buy a gun?

Oh shush and get back to work making better guitar samples for the Remixanator.

Hi, I've been a lurker for awhile and I was thinking of trying to be a remixer. This just made that problem a lot easer. I'd like to thank you all for the hard work put in to this so that people like me (total nobodies) can be remixers.

THANKS!

:nicework:

Gay. Gay. Gay. What happened to the diverse game choice. Now were all being forced to listen to like three songs? Sure they will release another in a month or two but what when u get tired of the THREE that are there? This is a let down. They sugar coat it to seem nice but underneath its all blan. No personalization from the artist. No one to give credit to for a good RM. I mean at least let people still upload individual songs sheesh. They work hard on them and i would listen to them all...of games i like. U took a turn for the worst OC. Maybe enough to make me leave.

The part of the vocals on the female vocal solo-piano Schala remix are the same as .hack//ROOTS "God Diva".

NOT ONLY DOES THIS THING MAKE REMIXERS OBSOLETE, IT ALSO ENGAGES IN MUSIC PIRACY THIS IS AN OUTRAGE WHAT DOES OCR HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THIS IMA GET THE RIAA ON YER ASSES

I don't get it. Why are people still upset?

Don't people like it when their food is pre-chewed for them, or like how many modern videogames hold their hands instead of challenging them?

This it just like that, except 10 times better, because now, there's no challenge or danger at all. Everyone can create the music they've always wanted and we won't need to suffer arrogant musicians anymore to compose and enjoy new music.

Now we're all potentially the greatest musicians in the universe, with just a few mouse clicks. This is truly a liberating day.

The future has finally arrived! Get excited people!

I'm not feelin' it here... sure, it's kinda neat, but it feels like sort of cool little time waster that should just be on the side. I mean, how're we gonna get things like blending several songs together, epic guitar solos, original and humorous lyrics, personalized reinterpretations, 7-minute piano improvisations, and all the other stuff that makes each ReMixer and their creations unique? What about ReMixing music from obscure games that no one's ever heard of until someone makes an awesome ReMix out of it?

Anyways, I tried out the Remixanator.... and it spat out an incomprehesible cacophony of noise. It was an Abomination. With a capital A.

Who the hell wants there hand held????! Its what its all about. Danger and challenge! This thing is stupid and im tired of people bragging about what good remixers they are already when they ARE PUSHING THREE BUTTONS!!!!!!!! Now even normal members are becoming arrogant dicks. That was the jobs for the real artists who do real things!! They deserved to be that way.

Wow, this thing is amazing. You've really outdone yourself this time, djp+India. I mean, not only does it allow endless customization of the industry's most notable tracks, but it opens music creation up to the masses. No longer do you have to be a rich guy with a bunch of production equipment and careful study if you want to create music. Hell, you don't even need to be a rich guy with an instrument and lessons (cya Beethoven). You just need to be a rich guy with a browser and some speakers. This is one of the greatest humanitarian efforts in history.

Now for some ideas on ways to improve. It's very good already, maybe the best thing ever, but there are always things to do:

1) The selection is a little paltry. Now, I know DS and others have said that more tracks are forthcoming. I'm not angry, and I'm not going to hit you, I promise, but this is our biggest concern right now. There's only one Chrono Trigger track. Now once again, you've done a man's work -- all of you. I know this must be a difficult and time consuming process, but we really need the rest of the Chrono Trigger soundtrack to be included. This isn't for my personal tastes, or even for the children. It's simply the most popular one, and I'm watching out for OCR's market penetration. And believe me, coming from someone who has taken nearly 5 economics classes, if you want your ASS to get the most penetration, you need more Chrono Trigger, first and foremost. In fact, if my math is right, you don't need anything else.

2) Now, the genre and effects settings have some minor problems too. I'm worried that all these extra bells and whistles are just going to confuse the regular jackoffs (or even the seasoned ReMixing experts; adjusting to technological advancements isn't easy) who want to use the Remixanator. For example, there are all these effects and instrumentation options, and that's cool. But the only logical choice is to MAX IT OUT with all of them. More is better, we all know that. No one likes minimalism.

And speaking of genres that no one likes, I think there are too many genres in the ReMixanator. You've got electronica, duh. Obviously, right? But what's this other stuff and who would ever use all that? I guess a few people here and there might, and it's good to include these superfluous genres as a sort of intellectual exercise, but they have little practical value for music creation. imo

3) ReMixanator can only be accessed from the main page. I don't know if this is something anyone has ever considered because (and I'll be the first to admit it) it's a pretty "out there" idea :wink::wink::wink: , but I'm browsing the forums, which I try to spend at least 4 hours a day reading, in crisp 1080p. I've got all this real estate to the left and right of what I'm reading and it's just going to waste.

This is a confusing, string theory level topic, but I know some of the OCR community use computers and can catch what I'm spitting. Some of you have probably already figured out where I'm going with this, but what if we were to implement some sort of forum sidebar? That way, we could have the forums AND ReMixanator in the same Internet Explorer viewing window. Obviously, this'll take some doing, but here's what I envision:

You've got your forum posts, your signatures, avatars, user titles, first and last names, thread titles, etc etc. Everything you see in the forums right now. Now, cram all that into a column on the side of the screen. That would be the sidebar. Of course, the remaining space would be used for the ReMixanator. That way, you can use the ReMixanator while viewing any thread.

Pretty good, huh?

Anyway, :nicework: and I'm very grateful to all concerned. And thanks for reading!

EDIT: And if I have seen far, it is only by standing on the shoulders of giants!

Danger and challenge!

Danger and challenge? The Remixanator is the future and that means that it's easy and convenient. No more waiting around for months or even years for that one IceCap theme that I really really wanted. Now, with just a few clicks of my mouse, voila! Instant remix! I don't know how anyone could think that this was anything but a revolutionary idea.

Little known fact: The ReMixinator runs off of the brains of recently deceased ReMixers, now that they are obselete.

At first I thought ReMixinator was a good thing that would make things easier and better for everyone. Then I realized that I now have no purpose.

Your purpose is to be recycled for the sake of the site. Make yourself useful to society, become one with the ReMixinator.

Guys, some of the negative feedback is really discouraging. You may not like SOME of the auto-generated mixes ReMixanator produces, but there should really be enough variety & customization that you can make SOMETHING you enjoy.

If you're not digging the beats you're generating, maybe it's time to look inward...

Also, it's worth noting that today marks the start of "April is Support OCR Month". We used 90% of our funds, donations included, in coding ReMixanator, so we really need your assistance to get back on track. Yes, I coded the C++ core of the application myself, but some of the advanced DSP and ethnic instrumentation implementations were outsourced to India, where they utilized a lot of JavaScript and COBOL, and it chewed up a lot of resources.

This is not DJP speaking. This is the ReMixanator. You can tell by the pixels. DJP is probably inside asking the ReMixanator to open the pod bay doors.
