Definitely excited by this project as I really enjoyed FF2, both the game and soundtrack.

It would be kind of funny if you named it Final Fantasy 2: Ungaahh! because nothing screams metal than yelling "Ungaahh!" at the top your lungs. (I'm kidding, btw. Rebellion is fine.)

We'll have to make an album dedicated to Typhon/Chupon from FF6 and call it that.

Damn straight it does.

EDIT: I meant to say this but I guess I forgot to or something...Definitely looking forward to this - FF2 was my first FF.

There are a lot of WIPs and a lot of promises, 5 finished songs. A lot more to go, but people in general have assured me they can finish things up by August. I just gotta hope. :-)

I think (but am not sure) that this thread should be in the "Projects" section... I'd appreciate it if someone could make the move, if it's to be done, if not let me know.

Anyway, a quick update!

We got a particularly amazing and beautiful solo piano medley from PacificPoem. This is someone I tracked down on Youtube because I had seen a medley of FF1 through FF3 he recorded for youtube. He recorded an all new version of this medley that is simply stunning and sounds incredible. The performance is very nice with classical nuances and a somber tone that evokes a sense of longing.

And we've got.... Galactus Win from Sir Jordanius, which is like a big expansion on Epic Win from the FF1 album. It's crazier and I love that. It is a fittingly zany sequel that includes a bit of the FF7 victory theme as well. It's 99% done, which is close enough in my book to list it as completed -- no hate. ;-)

People with songs SUPER CLOSE to being completed: IanFitC, KiddCabbage, Archangel, Zyko, BONKERS, PrototypeRaptor

Epic Win was an amazing track. I can't wait for Galactus Win.

I hope that someday I'll be considered for cool projects like this one :pretzel:

Hurray, it's in the Projects section! When do you record our song, Brandon? :)

Is it? Still looks like it's in community to me. ;-)

Don't worry! I'm gonna do that song. I just need to finish a couple other songs with deadlines (like for Vroom album) first. But trust me I ain't gonna sit on it for a year cause it needs to be done now too. :-)

So when's the Final Fantasy 3 project start?

That's a good question. We started production on FF2 basically slightly before FF1 ended, which would dictate that I should start FF3 now. But instead, I'm going to try to get FF2 done production-wise before moving on to FF3. Also I want it to be OCR approved from the start and give pre-existing project members dibs and then open it up for recruitment publicly. I know they're trying to change the standards so that projects need to have a good roster and interest before applying to be official. That doesn't sit good with me this time because I'd like this to really be a solid OC ReMix effort, have it be official and encourage people to participate in it rather than recruit for it manually like I did with the first 2 projects. Does that make sense? :-)

FF3 is, I think, twice as large as the soundtrack for the first 2 games, so it will definitely need more recruitment and less strictness concerning the genre, though I do want to keep pushing for real instrument usage and organic sounding electronica. I know that the push for organic only remixes has undone some projects (like Dragon Warrior!) so I'm definitely open to allowing good, engaging music in multiple genres. FF3 will be a melting pot of friendship. And I might start it next year. It'll give me a chance to hype it up to djp or whoever has an open ear at MAGfest. :-P

Glad to hear that you also think FF3 is bigger than a single genre, as the soundtrack is so large that I think people might get tired of listening. That being said, I'm looking forward to what you end up doing with FF2 -- I really enjoyed the first album, Brandon!

Ah crap, I thought it was. My bad xD

Great to hear, I'm looking forward what you'll do (and I can help too!)

Also, this is the installment that brought the Ultima spell, Orange Bomb, and Malboro to the table!

Besides the 4 battle themes, I'll most anticipate the Cave Dungeon and Magician's Tower mixes.

Castle Pandemonium was my favourite from the soundtrack when I played through the GBA remake. Looking forward to hearing that one. Also I'm happy to see Shnabubula on the track list there!

Hey, this sounds good. I mean, Final Fantasies 4, 7 and 1 are already done, and Fantasies 2, 5, 6 and 9 are being worked on at this very moment. So basically, how I understand it, we're running out of unremixed Fantasies fairly quickly, so it would be a great idea to give as many people as possible a chance to contribute to the upcoming FF projects.
