Super Street Fighter II Turbo: Blood on the Asphalt - History

Recommended Posts

Nah, this just isn't going to work! I'm glad other people are working on this theme, cause my efforts so far are just under par. I'll look at the themes that haven't been covered yet, and when I come up with something decent, then I'll post up a WIP of it, instead of wasting everyone's time by doing something like this again.

I got a new WIP from Hella Tite. That boy needs therapy.

Ranagazoo, let's have at you,

And when I count three...

:lol:

I promised my girlfriend I'd...

the violin!

The Avalanches aside, just posting to let anyone who may have been wondering know that the project is still progressing, slowly but surely, the front page is still (largely) accurate, and there's still room for more remixers. Inquire within.

Akuma's theme is a nightmare to get right. I'm not really a musician in the traditional sense. I know very little musical terminology, I can't play a single instrument, I can't read sheet music (very well), I don't use the best software or equipment and I suck at inventing melodies. But I'm reasonably good at at hearing a melody and being able to re-compose it in my sequencer. For weeks I tried to play by ear and pick out the chords and melodies for Akuma's theme. In the end I had to find a midi and take my cues from there. What I found suprised me, but that's music for you.

Shael, I've emailed you my latest effort. I'm sick to death of trying to find a damn host.

I'm still at it, folks.

Much like paying off my credit card balance,

I keep forgetting I should add something here

every once in a while before I get dropped.

At my end, the vocal portions are being delayed

until next month, and I'll have new WIPs

tomorrow for the music (although I really wanted

to update my site before that). I'm also

asking DJSammy to please stand by, because

one tune will almost definitely have an itch.

EDIT:

Decided to turn this post edit into a new post, because I thought the thread needed a bump. Beg pardon.

Here are the new WIPs...

http://bronxrican.com/stuff/misc/jose-oc-deejayreggaeton.mp3

I have arrangement ideas now, and instruments are pretty much set. Vocals will come, hopefully, and I may want a sample scratched ("Thank you, deejay"), if I don't think it'll be a clutter. I was playing around with a synth-stab live; if I work that out, it will be quantized. :)

Arranged; not much else, and I don't think there'll be much else, but I really won't know until the vocals are laid down.

Hey! I appreciate you posting WIPs, Jose. I've been real busy--sorry I haven't gotten to them yet but I'll post feedback soon. Prolly tommorow.

Feedback on Jose's WIPs:

Dee Jay:

Overall a tight beat that will suit some vocals well. The strings, though, are ugly as sin; you might try a new sample and/or some effect processing. The syncopated synths stabs work at times but are distracting at others. The piano could benefit from a more loose, improvisational interpreation of the melody, including more trills and grace notes. I know it sounds like a lot, but if I pointed out all the WIPs strong points, I'd be filling up three times as much space. Looking forward to the finished product, and to seeing you on Friday with the rest of those crazy kids.

Vega's Ending:

Again, I wasn't feeling the dry strings in the intro, but once the beats, bass and tense piano came in, I was bouncing my head like whoa! I'm really feeling this as a rap beat. Shit, it's an exciting prospect; the strings even work once the rest of the instruments come in to compliment them. If matched with powerful vocals and finished with care, this could be one of the best tracks on the album.

Hey, Jose, You want me to do some live scratching work on the tracks? I'd love to, if you think it would add to them. If you're interested, send me the wav file of the song, maybe record like 4 or 5 one to two second sayings or whatever for me to scratch. Then, just tell me where you want the scratching done!

since I'm currently without my standard software/hardware, I'm working on melodic and lyrical ideas right now...Hopefully I'll be able to jump right in to mixing again.

Ok, I've done as much as I can think of with Akuma's theme. I've re-jigged the intro to make it just a wee bit stronger. I've changed a few samples here and there.

As for the production quality side of things, I'm not sure what to do with it. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreiciated.

Nesper's track is sexual.

I'm going to have to overhaul the initial post--rewrite it completely and update the track list, plus keep a list of finished tracks.

Ya'll doing good?

Akuma is damn near finished. I need help cleaning up all the pops, clicks, crackles and farts. There aren't too many but they're noticeable. Not having any knowledge of sound engineering, this task is proving vexing. :( If anyone could point me in the right direction I'd really appreiciate it. Thnx.

Blind and Leifo's Sagat is, indeed, finished, and awesome. One more track down.

How about that update on the first page? :wink:

Theres a diferent collab on Chun-Li. It would be good to have some color labels (like red for free track, green for taken track, blue for finished) or something...

Anyway, after my hard drive crash I am re-doing Chun-Li, and Shael (quite cruelly by the way), said that he was glad I lost the older version, cause this one is better.

So cheers!!! =D

EDIT: Me and Malcos are going to collab in Balrogs End.

Shael linked me a sample of what this album is going to sound like, and I have to say that if the rest of the songs turn out anything like the Ryu track is shaping up to be, then we're all in for a super treat.

Kudos to those of you contributing to this wonderful body of work!
