Recommended Posts

PsyNES!

Man, I've been waiting for a mixpost from you for ages - love your stuff. Very tight, very well mixed and just full of awesomeness, in general.

When I saw this posted, I thought, "Really? More Flash Man? And with lots of SFX? Ugh. Well, I'll listen anyway." And wow, this kicks ass. Some of it is just a little too liberal for my tastes, but overall this was really amazing. Best use of 8-bit SFX I've ever heard, great arrangement, great instrumentation, great job keeping a short loop fresh each time it comes around.

I've only just started to play with synth effects myself, and now mixes like this one are my goal. Well, maybe without the SFX. I don't think I could ever make myself do that.

I logged for the first time in 7 years just to say how awesome this song is. My neighbours may not be enjoying me at this moment however.

Yeah very nice! You guys managed to take a very overdone theme and make it sound fresh. I really liked the arrangement and use of sfx too. Nice job! :-)

Kudos on the creative sequencing and use of sounds. The soundscape kept evolving but still felt familiar and like the same song. Not an easy task to accomplish.

Humbled to hear a remix of a classic MM track. Plus it feels like a live gameplay segment with all of the sound fx going berserk. Until it all comes together, it is so sweet.

Sound effects and chip tune together in a tasty little mix. Lots of energy going, which makes this a fun track to listen to, and the way the sound effects help the ReMix along is brilliant. Not bad at all.

Amazing track - I listened to it non-stop for about an hour last night.

The only thing I find questionable are a couple sound effects. The "megman jump landing" effect is too clean - needs to be either volumed down or have more reverb to blend it better. The "gate" effect could have been split up to match the beat.

Other than those, I think the mix is perfect.

Master work!

I have to say that this track is - HANDS - DOWN - THE - BEST - Mega Man remix to date.  I will strongly petition for DJ Pretzel to do more Mega Man remixes.  

 

BRAVO!!
