Recommended Posts

I'm still kinda jealous. You managed to complete this remix before I could even come up with a solid idea, man.

But, its all good and this mix is SEXY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yup, sounds like another cool zircon rack, full of stuff but still nice and clearly mixed. 3 hours, you say?

2:37 shows the contrast between the styles used in the track. Not really the smoothest transition, but it provides a good example of different styles in the same track. Good for newbs to hear.

Thread name is "TALES and the music maker"? Someone thinking this is a Tales game? :P The mp3 is tagged right tho, as is the game in the database.

edit: lol at willrock rawr

Great work once more from zircon, and now SEGA can't yell at us anymore.

Are there any other systems that lack remixes on the site? If so, get some as a preventive measure so their manufacturers can't call us out. :P

Andy, your production continues to be among the best of the artists I listen to, including the famous musicians I lecture on in my rock class at UMN. Your placement of different instruments within the soundscape is nearly unmatched, both here and elsewhere. Critiquing or making suggestions to improve your production remains beyond me -- nice work. :P

As for the arrangement itself, slowing down the source tempo was the way to go -- drastic tempo changes of any kind often make the piece your own, and we definitely get that sense here. I'd almost like to see one of the crystal-like synth patches replaced by koto to give us a more authentic Asian sound, but it could just be my general preference for acoustic instruments surfacing. In any case, the idea that this was only half an afternoon for you is crazy. Keep up the good work!

I've listened to more of your mixes in the last month of my life than anyone else ever has in their entire lives. Thanks to this, I shall never back down from my position as your #1 listener.

I have learned three things today:

1. The SEGA Pico was yet another SEGA console I did not know about, and it was the only SEGA console to have a Mario game.

2. That zircon displayed a tremendous feat by making this AWESOME mix incredibly fast.

3. It is possible to have a lunch of Reese's Puffs and American cheese in college without harsh judgment from my peers.

Wow Zircon well done in creating this masterpiece in under 3 hours, I love most of your work, especially remixes with your wife as vocalist.

This remix is really nice and peaceful to listen to.

Thats all i got to say about it really, just keep up the good work

Yow! This is amazing! Absolutely love it.

I'm a huge critic on most things, esp. music. I can find improvements to be made in anything. Or I would have said until I listened to this track. Nothing I hear shows any signs of needing improvement at all. The length is just perfect, each sound in the piece fits perfectly with the rest, even complimenting each other continuously throughout the track. It caught my attention at the very start and ended too, with my attention caught. It had me slowly bobbing my head and tapping my food with a goofy smile on my face.

Excellent work. 5/5. Astounding on its own, a work of miracles being done in three hours.

Not familiar with the source, or the system, but I know that I love this track!

This seriously took you only three hours from start to finish though? Damn, here's hoping I gain talent like that eventually...

Anywho, solid mix Zircon!
