OCR02232 - Final Fantasy V 'Sinking Deeper'

Recommended Posts

to give just a little more info on the mix itself, this is the first time I actually utilized sidechaining/'gain pumping', which is what creates the pumping/fading effect on the bass and various other instruments. if I switch it off, the whole mix instantly becomes a nasty brickwalled mess of sounds. fun stuff. ;D

Woah. This is kind of different. The beat kind of throws me off, which keeps stuff interesting. Nice take on the theme too. 5\4 FTW. The only thing I don't like is that SLIGHTLY detuned flute thing. Other than that, ace, dude.

Haha dude halc I totally love your shit man. 3/4? Straight sickness if you ask me. It's got that loveable, playful sound to it, with funk added and signature 8 bit elements to top everything off. Nice pumping effect too, listening on my monitors, can't wait to listen on my earbuds =D. Another great piece sir.

Halc, you've quickly become one of my favorite artists here on OCR. I know you've been arranging for a while, but I only just really started paying attention to artist names, much thanks to you and your distinct style. Just about everything I've heard from your stash is top notch, which makes your prolificacy (pretty sure that's a word) that much more impressive. Keep it going, man.

This song is great. The way the beat seems to have a constant "reverb/pulsing" feel to it makes it seem very aquatic.

I am also surprised I have been downloading songs of yours and brigg's for a while(You know ala-lurker) but I haven't seen either of you do many of the final fantasy songs aside from the FFX remix of yours.

None-the-less much respect for this wonderful piece of work. Perhaps one day I'll see a Final Fantasy Tactics remix from you ^^;

Best bit is the awesome textures you got going on thar - especially the air behind the kick. A brillant track man, your style has never been so distinctive as it is right now.

This this this this.

I wouldn't necessary limit it to 8 bit, actually; a lot of it gives me a 16 bit vibe (considering the source, what I just said is a pretty hurrdurr statement, but you know what I mean).

Again, the FF5 soundtrack needs more love.

And this is a step in the right direction. A wondrous take on the source, and again, some really great chipwork here.

I feel sort of Pokemon at Sea-ish with this ReMix, if that makes any sense. It seems to me that light, watery tunes lend themselves really well to chiptunes, and who better than Halc to bring that out? Speakers don't seem to do this justice without headphones and the pulsing feeling. Cool stuff, man.

Man, this is just excellent for this source. Like there's really not much to say except that this mix completely nails it. The whole outro is perfect. As a FFV fan, it's great to see this underrated source get such a fitting remix.
