Megaman II Intro and theme

Recommended Posts

I was practicing/tweaking my orchestra template/workflow tonight and so did an orchestra cover of Megaman II's intro and theme.

I actually have quite a ton of orchestra version remixes on my YouTube channel. I would post them here but they're a bit short (most are under 2-3 minutes) and some are quite faithful to the originals.

Any feedback (particularly on realism) would be appreciated muchly!

I really enjoyed this orchestration/remix, great work =) You seem really talented with samples/humanisation, they all sound superb.

I can only comment on the string section since that is the bits I have the most experience with. The bit from 1:19-1:25, is what stuck out to me as being less than real.

String crossings with those notes sound a bit different live as you probably know, as each string sounds different and resonates a bit differently, but is something that never seems to translate well in sample libraries.

Also because that ascending passage at 1:19 is too fast for spiccato I think and the violins would have to use sautille as the technique there if you wanted it off the string, and it would sound different.But then again I don't think there are many sample libraries that have that technique. If you wanted the same technique spiccato, you could have 2 of the sections doing divis. But then again, maybe I've just been in noob orchestras and we can do it =D

But yeah, if you don't pay attention to how 'real' it sounds, it sound epic and awesome regardless, I subscribed <3

I love the first 50 seconds of this so much =w=

I'm don't know much about making orchestral sounds real so the only advice I have for you here on OCremix is expand on the themes. Orchestral music is great for exploring the various modes and melodies contained in classic tunes like this. I believe what you have right now would serve as a great beginning, followed by a few more minutes of diversion, expansion and awesomeness. :D Hope to hear more from you.

This is an awesome orchestral cover, good samples and humanization :nicework:

2nd listen through...some of it does feel fake, but there's only so much you can do with sample libraries and not real stuff. Hopefully if you do intend to submit this piece, the J's won't find that to be an issue.
