Nubblecakes Posted February 20, 2012 Report Share Posted February 20, 2012 To start, I'd just like to say hello. Just got my account approved and decided I would post my current work-in-progress remix. I decided recently to remix Alien Power from Streets of Rage 2. I used to play this game with my brothers a lot when I was four years old. The stage where you fight vehilits, the floating alien head, always creeped me out. It wasn't the way it looked that got to me, it was the music (and the sounds the boss made). Anyway, so far I have the basic structure of the song done. I still need to do loads of work on the intro, the transitions, and the outro. I'm going for a dark acid/psychedelic trance song. I really want it to flow nice and smooth. The current BPM is 140. I use FL Studio and various VST plugins. I'm pretty inexperienced and I can't play any instruments. Bare with me if you use a musical term whose meaning I don't know. I'm completely open to all criticism so feel free to tear my song apart. Just, you know, keep in mind it's really early in development. Original song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mskaRaVzMaQ Listen to the track here: http://soundcloud.com/nubblecakes/vehilits-the-conqueror-beta (Obsolete) Update 1: http://soundcloud.com/nubblecakes/fear-vehelits-beta-2 Changelog:New percussion for the trance segments (break beat percussion remains the same). Synths that play during the apex of the trance segments have been replaced with new ones. They rely less on gating effects and are a bit more "vanilla" in sound to make the remix sound more like the original. They still have some uniqueness to them, though. Improved areas such as the intro, transitions, and outro to be more smooth; via effects such as sweeps, rises, falls, and classic reverse crashes. The song should flow a lot better. There is still work to be done in this department. Better breakdown at the end of the break beat segment to give it more energy. Added recording of Vehelits boss fight at the end for fun. Not sure if this is frowned upon though. I changed the thread type to Mod Review in hopes that I might get some more feedback. I think it might have a chance of getting accepted as it is, but if not then oh well. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
