BadAss: Boss Themes: Volume I - History

Recommended Posts

ed]Fine, you think maybe I should update the WIP thing by a week? I gave plenty of time, I think...

YOu shouldn't. Stay with the deadline. Just exclude some people that have good reasons (no pun intended) not to be able to make it from it. Extend it for them only. Like the-almighty-tallest said, it won't be the only time that someone can't make the dealine because of various reasons. I suggest keeping the dealine as it was, but give the remixers with problems (like tallest) some more time.

ed]And don't think that me saying I don't like the ending to that one doesn't mean it's not good. Just, it's a little out of place, you know?

I have a feeling that your disliking of the ending has more to do with your taste in musical genre than my undoing :wink:. But this isn't the end yet. There's still a part coming.

Hello all, just wanted to "check in" since I've been gone for a while. After finishing a ton of stuff for schoo this week, I have room to breathe again :)

So, heading home for break now, and will record things with the guitarist. Expect major revisions from me by the end of next weekend. 8)

Well I think I've got some new ideas for my sephiroth arrangement by taking a few days off, so I'll get to work as soon as possible.

Anyway, about the King Dedede mix, I'd love to do it. I finally got my hands on the Garritan Jazz & Big Band sample library, and I think King Dedede's theme would be perfect for a fast, hectic jazz piece (nothing mellow, mind you), even though I understand that would be bending the rule restrictions a bit :)

ed]Dark Force-

Hey, whats the deal? You removed it from the WIPs thing, said you were done, and then pulled or something? I never got a response for that...

Yeah, I should probably explain.

Yes it is 99% done, and andy is just tweaking it for completion atm. We haven't replied yet because we're still not sure what we want to do with it yet. We're much further along than most people, and we have no idea how long the entire project is gonna take, it just seems a shame that its gonna sit there finished for what could be a very very long time without being heard.

The best idea we've come up with so far is this: We wanted to take this track off the project and then instead, make a new track for the project later on. This way, me and andy can finally get something on OCR, and the project would still get a track from us also, although we havent thought about what track we would do instead. This is of course assuming that our track got accepted, we can't be sure but we're fairly confident its a solid arrangement with good production.

Oh and Pi_R_[]ed, i heard you thought this was a bad idea, but i'm not sure what the problem is, as i said, we're more then willing to do another track for the project at some time. Perhaps you would like to hear the track first? It might not even fit in with what you want. Sorry about the fuss.

Sigma-

Sounding very good so far. Like the feel, nothing about this one so far.

Hell yes I'm safe.

You lucky #^@$&

Dr. Robotnik-

Last you said, you were going to make it darker, but also more "dance-y". Be very careful with that.

I understand what you are looking for; I think I may have mentioned before, but the kind of thing I'm gonna go for is like Insomnia by Faithless which is a very dark tune yet a dance masterpiece with euphoric overtones.

Did that description make me sound like a wine critic?

One thing that is holding me back a little is my inability to sing correctly (voice is okay, just need to learn how to use it.) I aim to be having singing lessons once the Christmas season has been and gone and the lyrics I have planned with the style I have in mind should rectify the O LOLZ - ITZ HAPPEHY vibe which sometimes emanates.

Did that description make me sound like a wine critic?

The lyrics mangle the original and paint a picture of an insane persona, but insanity which justifies and glorifies itself.

Now, I understand you have only one WIP from me, but the schedule of my job and my degree course intercepts my ReMixing and OCR-ing. But rest assured I am not going away - I should be providing something in time for the 12 days of Christmas.

Alright, my 5th and second last version of my mix is up. It's completely finished now, except for the snare that will eb replaced by the-almighty-tallest's drumming. So I guess that's it for me, gotta start thinking about another track perhaps...

ed]Saturos and Menardi-

This doesn't even feel like a track. It feels like a build-up, like an intro. Am I the only one that thinks that?

That's because that's all it is right now - believe me, it will be a heck of a lot better, I just got a couple of ideas a few minutes ago from "Darkness Duelling" and "Confronting the Mystic" from Chrono Symphonic.

Wats up guys, I have a pretty big update for my song over at the private forums.

I said this over there, but I'll say it again so everyone will know.

I'd like to get real guitar for this if anyone can actually play it. Both lead and rythm. Writing guitar tab for it would take ages, I can give u guys an mp3 and midi for each part.

The hardest part would prob be the rythm guitar in the 2nd to last section. Tensei-San was the first to offer, so you got first dibs dude. The guitar sound cannot be overly distorted, but it has to have some distortion I tried to create the sound I would like to hear best in the song. I think the lead is good, but the rythm guitars in the first section could sound better. I used guitar rig 2 to create the guitar sounds in the demo.

I am hoping to get the guitar work done soon, bc I wanna submit this asap so I can feedback on it if it doesn't pass before we release the project.

Oh yeah, I though about naming the song 'My Obligation to Oblivion' wat do guys think?

I see that Doomsday is doing a Sigma remix, and at the start it's got both Dr. Wily from the original Mega Man series, and Sigma from the Mega Man X/Maverick Hunter X series.

...it'd be so totally kick-ass if you did themes for both, since each one had about nine games they were the major villians of.

Just a thought. I'm really looking forward to seeing this project finished.

Hold on, let me just say that Twilight Princess is the best video game in the history of all time. Don't think I'm dead, I've just been preoccupied with that, and I've been sick and tired from waiting on line for 30 hours for the damn thing...

OK, let me get as much done as I can.

No prob, as long as it's good.

Gotcha. I think. Your choice, I guess.

Better than nothing, I suppose...

Plaigarism is illegal. But whatever makes a good track, go ahead...

Nice. LATIN! anyone? anyone? That would sound cools...

Having listened to Project Chaos... Oh god yes

Sure hope so.

...it'd be so totally kick-ass if you did themes for both, since each one had about nine games they were the major villians of.

Only one track, per series, per album. But not a bad idea.

Just a thought. I'm really looking forward to seeing this project finished.

You're not the only one.

Sounds dark and evil enough. I like the sound of it. At least it's not Latin :wink:

Pi, you should really contact DarkeSword again. We've been in GenDisc for ages now. Don't you think we truly deserve the title "OCR Site Project" by now?

I'll consider it, but I'm already up to about 4 minutes and I've barely even touched on the Sigma boss battle (although truth be told my ideas of it are slim to none, its a pretty crappy boss battle theme).

Oh, I screwed up. I didn't mean to combine them, I meant seperate themes. S'why Pi-r-squared said no.

But honestly, you've got better source material if you chose Dr. Wily instead of Sigma. The Mega Man 3, Mega Man 4, Mega Man 6, and Mega Man 7 Wily Battle themes are much better pieces that most all of Sigma's battle themes.

Mega Man 3: http://music.atomic-fire.com/mp3/src_org_rm3/21%20-%20Final%20Battle.mp3

Mega Man 4: http://music.atomic-fire.com/mp3/src_org_rm4/27%20-%20Final%20Battle.mp3

Mega Man 6: http://music.atomic-fire.com/mp3/src_org_rm6/24%20-%20Final%20Battle.mp3

But with you up to four minutes? That seems like a -lot- of work to abandon, so.

Thing is, though, his Sigma WIP is pretty badass. Have you not heard it? Very cool Trance mix. And remeber, theres loads of Dr. Willy remixes on the site (although they are mostly from Megaman 2). And his themes getting mixed again for the Megaman IV Remix Project. Sigma deserves to get a remix. Plus, it was up to Doomsdasy to decide whether to do a Sigma remix or a Dr. Willy remix in the first place (on the fron't page, It originally said ''Dr Willy/Sigma'').

I looked for the WIP, but couldn't find it. Anyway, I was pretty much agreeing with him about the source material thing. Sigma's music is probably tough to do something with, but after hearing the two of you, I'm convinced Doomsday will make it work.

...and to be honest, I prefer the X series.

As far as the Mega Man 2 Dr. Wily themes? No more, no more. :roll: That's right up there with Far Promise and Schala's theme.

I was actually thinking about doing a nice jazz mix of the Dr. Willy Megaman 2 theme myself, done with saxaphone as a main instrument....

....But Ive decided instead to do a jazz mix of all the Dr.Willy themes (well, a lot of them, anyway), with different main instruments for different themes (saxaphone for Dr Willy Megaman 2, though).

Same here. Plus, the WIP sounds great so far. You could use Sigma's theme from Megaman X3, it's a pretty good song and not too hard to ReMix.
