BadAss: Boss Themes: Volume I - History

Recommended Posts

Original, or chunky? Err... I mean Melee?

And, yeah, the real thing would definately be better, I was just waiting for someone to say it before me...

Or, rather, getting those guys to speak, what would we have them say? "Hi, this is Sephiroth. Welcome, to the official 'Crescendo to Chaos' site. Have a good lunch!"? The prospect scares the crap outta me.

I endorse this idea fully. Also, I put forward the title "Crescendo to Cooking."

By the way, did you get a chance to listen to my new WIP yet?

Yeah, it was great, but I guess the original post I had didnt go through, for some reason. It went along these lines:

"Ooh! mlo, I have chills. Its coming along great. The only problems I have to point out right now is the transition at 0:28. That, and something about 2:00 makes me want to play Sonic, but I guess that isn't a real problem."

I dont know why it didnt go through... but it would have gone with my post several up, that mentioned someone mastering the tracks.

Speaking of which...

Hey, don't look at me. I'm mixing on a zero dollar budget. :lol: I know the Chrono Symphonic project was mastered though, by Compyfox, I think...? You could contact him.

And I'm just wondering when you're planning on moving to Gen. Discussion. We've met the requirements to do so, unless I've misunderstood something. (which is entirely possible)

Crescendo to Cooking.....I LOVE IT! ha ha

Sorry mlo, I keep intending to post regarding your mix. I'll try to today.

I could try and master some tracks, I've got the computer and software for it, but I'm still a bit of a neophyte compared to those in the "biz". If you can get someone that really has proven themselves that would be better though. If you can't get anyone, I can give it a shot.

Well, Rexy said wait until 20, and I don't want to argue about it with someone who has had MUCH more experience than myself, unless she wants to step forward and green light the get-go herself. Other wise, yeah, I completely agree. The fact that we are moving along much faster than the other projects stuck here in requests can only mean that we will have a very positive reaction with anyone that doesn't normally check this section of the forums.

So, what does everyone else think?

And, one more thing. Like I said before, +10,000 page views doesn't happen on it's own. Do we have fans out there, or what? Please, step forward. Knowing that there are people looking forward to this is exciting!

Sorry to get off topic, but the Sloprano link is busted.Could somebody re-upload the WIP,or could sombody contact Sleepy Emp,and see how far he has gotten with it? Just because, we haven't heard from him in a while...

I have access to Cubase and its "mastering" (compression and EQ) plug-ins. If someone has more proper experience and the pro plug-ins specifically designed for mastering it would be better, but I am certainly no stranger to trying to master songs (e.g. for my band). I will warn though: as a bassist myself, I am accused of making songs a little bass heavy ;)

Like James George said, someone "in the biz" would be better for the voodoo-arcane art of mastering, but otherwise I can help.

Sorry, I must have missed that post. And I, too, am relatively new at this, but here's my two cents:

One of the reasons for having a General Discussion thread is to attract remixers who don't browse the Request forum. My only concern would be how many people don't know about this, and would be interested. There are, if I remember correctly, twenty-six tracks on the project, and starting a new thread inviting mixers with only six positions open seems like a strange idea to me. Of course, if there is a history of projects not getting many mixers in G. D., then Rexy's point is more than valid. Like I said, I don't claim to be an expert in these matters. I just write the music :)

On a completely unrelated sidenote: thank you for your feedback James (and Pi)! Mucho appreciated. I'm gonna try some filter tricks on the samples to warm them up.

Well, I see your point contradicting itself. If General Discussion could only drag in 6 people, why would we even want to bother, besides spreading the news.

And personally, I think WIPs would be more likely to attract more eopple. Thats where all the artists are.

Hmm. That's a good point.

After a week, doesn't the thread just get moved from Gen. to the WIPs forum? So we'd just end up there anyway.

Eh, so much for guesswork. It's your call in the end.

Well, thats what I mean. Not counting attention, it so far doesn't sound like general wont do much for us besides advance us to WIPs. That is, unless there is proof that it does anything to besides hype the project.

Correct me if I'm way out in left field here, but are you implying you want to skip General altogether and go straight to WIPs? There's a large chance I'm misinterpreting here...

Maybe you should just PM Darkesword. He is site projects coordinator, and probably has the best advice out of anyone on what to do in this situation. He can probably answer your questions a lot better than me, anyway. :?

It can't hurt being in general for a week. There is a lot more activity in general than in the WIP forums, so I think it'd be best to to at least spend some time in both so we can reach a wider audience.

No, absolutely not. General is completely necessary to the process. I almost never check WIPs myself, simply because I'd rather listen to the finished thing (Of course, thats all going to change soon enough anyway...). I said I was going to wait for 20, but going now cant hurt, I suppose. I will go contact DarkeSword for approval right now.

But I have to say, back when I was uber-n00bness, maybe two ro three days after I first got an account, and new NOTHING about the inner workings of OCR, I did attempt to contact DS about a Majora's Mask project in response to the fact that there was none on the site. I did get a response, but very short and to the point, and not rude, exactly, but made me feel rather uncomfortable about ever contacting him again. I have to say, I feel very nervous. Odds are, he's completely forgotten about it, and bringing it up at all is just screwing myself over. I feel embarrassed about the whole thing, and I really hope this goes well.

Not saying there shouldn't be a Zelda project, but with the albums they have for those games, for the most part, it isn't necessary. (At any rate, the happy mask man reserves some respect...)

So, here I go, to contact DarkeSword...

Just one more question regarding the Sloprano WIP.

How long is it? just wondering since the first one was unbelivebly awesome,yet only two minutes...

The final version will be up to 4 minutes long, I presume. I'm still working on it, so this is not for certain. As for the WIP, it might be very close to the final version.

Well, just judging from the quality of the WIP you posted before, I'm actually not surprised. Of course, never say it couldnt get better. EVER. It can always be made better. You just aren't looking (and listening) hard enough.

Still waiting on DarkeSword. What time zone is he in? Graaagh... I can't wait!

I think he's on the East Coast.

But the reason why I said wait until 20 tracks are taken is because of the project rule of having 75% of your remixes allocated to musicians before you consider making the move to GD. I know that it sounds problematic to get through, but this is what promotion is for; go on and bug people around the forums about it ;)

Actually, he's only one state away from me...

But, the requirements for hitting general discussion is 2/3, and we have 2.07/3, or whatever my math was. Why would we want to wait any longer?

...actually you're right 8O When waiting to appeal for Children of Erdrick to reach General Discussion, the initial decision was 75% of tracks to be filled in, not 66% as was revised soon after. I'm sorry if I was a little slow.

Anyway, I'm not sure if it is 2.07; 17 spots taken divided by 26 available places = 0.65 to two decimal places; multiplied by 3, you would get 1.96/3, so we're not quite 2/3s of the way yet, but I'm sure that Darkesword won't mind as long as you know where to look to get that last push if he thinks it's still not quite ready.
