OCR02124 - Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 'This Triforce Has Too Many Pieces'

Recommended Posts

Typical Halc mi-

Nah, I love Halc's style, and this mix in particular uses the crunchiness to the extreme (in a good way). I love that he focuses more on the other aspects of the theme as well as the main melody.

GO Halc!

A whole day? Wow halc, you're losing your edge.

(Oh, I'm sorry, LESS than a day. Ok you win)

The triforce chamber theme is amazing, and I love the way you handled that section of it here. But yeah the whole thing is pretty sexy. I need to figure out how to do production like this.

Does this remind anyone else of Kirby: Canvas Curse? Or maybe I'm thinking Kirby's Dreamland 3? I'm definitely getting a hella "Kirby" feeling from this. I mean that as a compliment.

Overall, a pleasant listen, but in the long term it's just not my thing. I get the sense its appeal would decrease rapidly with multiple listens for me.

Hmm, it's definitely good, however it feels like there might even be a tad too MUCH of the snap crackle popness going on here. Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying it for sure, and the arrangement is quite good, but there's a few parts that make me wince a little bit because of the frequencies you're pushing hard on the high end. Besides that, really digging it, especially some of those C64/NES-style arp-chords.

This is pretty nice - of course it's the standard halc chiptuneage, but taking on the iconic Zelda song in a little more of an upbeat fashion that's a tad reminiscent of Kakariko Village.

I don't think I have too much to add here except that it's quaint and relaxing. The chiptunes add a nice atmosphere to the song.

Now this is different, it feels more underwater (16bit style).

Yet more closely to an end credits version (always the best)

Plus I love how the song changes 1:12.. humming along ^_^

Less than a day? Really? Damn, the ReMixers here are beasts to knock out mixes like this in a day. I truly am glad to see the Triforce Chamber get a good ReMix. The "Kirbyness" of this makes me smile, and I actually enjoy the chipy-chirpy sound of this. Impressive and grin worthy.

This is probably halc's most overtly-chippy posted mix, but I love how he mixes it up with some rhodes and atmospheric sounds to give this song more of a defined mood. It's not my favorite of his mixes, but its' a wonderful take on a theme that we all pretty much have come to know and love.

I really like how it manages to stay pretty laid back with so many gritty synths and glitchy melody lines throughout the whole song. It's an interesting result, for sure.

The lead melodies themselves never really stick out to me, it's more about everything else.

I can't really tell what it is, but in my opinion this mix is missing a little kick to it (emphasis on little, though). I noticed this while listening in my car today. A little bit of a stronger bass might have helped it a little. But really not too much, this mix benefits from being really light.

Just my opinion though, and what do I know, really? :P

Love it though. :)
