OCR00532 - Valis III "Sword Evolution (Starlight)"

Recommended Posts

Valis III 'Sword Evolution (Starlight)'

What's here sounds great, although the lead is maybe overpowered a little by the synth thingys. The problem with this mix is that it feels incomplete, like a demo for some larger mix that only has the intro, then is over before you know it. While some mixes can get away with being only about a minute, this one can't, making it, sorry to say, entirely forgettable.

Nice work. My main problem with this is that it's too short. It is hard to beat the original, but that is not the fault of the mixer. Seriously, make more from this series. If you've never heard music from this series, then you have no alternative but to get this. Overall, cool. Looking forward to hearing more from VotF.

I actually think the length is appropriate since you don't here this tune for very long in the game. Some other Valis remixes would be nice, especially from Valis I. Frash of Sword begs to be remixed.

Beautiful...but a cocktease! I wanted so much more. I loved this game, and it has a fantastic soundtrack. I wish other remixers would take notice of this game. Great job though dude. Made my heart melt, and thats not easy to do anymore. Recommended.

This mix stopped before it even got off the ground; it was way too short.

A shame too, since it was sounding really good. Though I'm not sure about the lofi synth arpeggios, the rest of the track is great, with a calm melody and subtle percussion touches.

It really reminds me of lunar or a similar RPG soundtrack, and it makes me kindof sad something like this that could be so good got cut so short.

Wow, this is really pretty! I'm definately keeping this.

Everyone's said it, waaaayyy too short! There could be so much more expansion on the theme, rather than a one time run-through. I don't know the original, so I don't know what's been done, but a second and third run through would have been appreciated by me.

I definitely love those synth arpeggios.. the way the reverb disappears in the intro and then the main tune kicks in.. a really nice touch. The flute is rather stiff though, no volume variation.

And yeah, it's really short. Just begging for another part. But it's really sweet too.

i would have preferred to not lose that delay in the beginning around 0:08.

otherwise, this sounds great! why so short?? once i started nodding my head to the music the song was over.

great job!

I agree with that it is too short, for one.

For me, the driving synths in the background seem really out of place here.

It seems like it is trying to be techno and easy listening at the same time, which is is a little strange.

But it is an interesting track nonetheless.

It keeps reminding me of Final Fantasy for some reason.

wow, this is too short (and that's a good thing, since I liked it). I really liked the use of the synths, it gave the track a distinct flavor . would like to have seen this developed a little into something even better!

The samples stick out as quite bleh, and when you think the mix is about to step it up, it ends.

So disappointing that this mix is only 1:08, as it starts off promisingly.

Ooooooo, me rikey. Some niggles with the mixing (flute could have some more verb and the production is a bit too much IN YOUR FACE for the chill arrangement) but...yeah, this song is nice and WAY TOO SHORT...oh, Val already said that...and so did other people.

Carry on. Do it again. Longer. And with feeling.
