BadAss: Boss Themes: Volume I - History


Recommended Posts

I like days like this. Zone out for the weekend, come back, see a whole mess of posts hit me in the face. Before I get yelled at for zoning out for a whole weekend, let me move on.

So, Vagrance can't keep up? No problem. You gave it your best shot, and at least you're going gracefully instead of just not showing up for months, then letting me prune you off the project. Let's just hope someone picks it up.

The renewed interest in Sephiroth is nice to see. Just remember to try not to focus on 1WA, as we've all gone over before.

Everybody: This will be easier if everyone does it, so a big thing doesnt need to rest on only a few people. SCOUT! Now, I for example, brought ourselves attention to Stemage, from MM, for example. Now, we've all been looking. I don't see why we can't have everyone else help.

I'll try to get more posting done on the private forums. I haven't been doing much there, have I? Hmm...

Has anyone considdered a sonic and knuckles rock style remix of the act1 boss theme for the Dr. Robotnick remix,or a rock style remix of the sonic 1 final zone/boss remix.Is that possible for this project?

Also,I think it's a good idea to have a genre for all remixers to adhere to,because when you have multiple genres of music on one album,it makes the album sound like a mixed bag of musi imo.Rock seems to be wrather popular around ocr these days so why not have a primarolly rock album on ocr for once.

Aaaaaaaaaand..... No one cares anymore?

Ah, jeez. It never gets easier, not even a little bit.

In an effort to spark up some renewed interest, anyone interested in doing a bit of art can PM me. If gts is doing the album art + w/e, maybe we could get others, and if I remember, there were a few instances of people saying they could help. By "help", I don't mean give a stab at it. I mean, if you have some art skill, no shots in the dark. Send me a PM with a request, first-come first serve. I'll dish out projects based on what I think you'll be good at. That means sending prior work for me to take a look at, too. I want to see the end results of experience here, not some n00b attempt at learning how to draw a straight line. There are only a few things I can give out, so hurry it up if you want a spot.

Ppppbbbthhhh....

Yeah. Don't think we're not looking for other artists. And take my word for it, I'm (We're, I assume) not/aren't afraid to dump this whole team in favor of reliable, better artists. Especially considering how slow things have been going lately.

- Second note: If you know of any "Rock" artists, be they actual guitarists, or just someone good with a program, send them our way. Or rather, a much better idea, PM me. Either/Or, really. That goes for mixers and just regular forum-goers. If you know someone, hook us up, don't leave us hanging here, man...

For everyone - Hey, rock isn't a bad shift, right? It tightens focus, and giving the album one unified sound's better then a mish-mosh of different styles. I mean, I was originally worried that it might alienate artists already on the project who don't "do" rock, but it looks like most, if not nearly all of the artists are going to be replaced, well, it doesn't really look like that's a big worry, does it...

*Sigh*... Seriously. If I have to, every current artist can be dropped. I don't hope for it. I really don't. But what needs to be done will be. Take my word for it.

Whoa dude, that threat is totally not warranted. I know I for one have made every due date. Just, you know real life issues on both mine, as well as my collab partners lives have arisen.

I'll be completely honest, even if you did get a whole new team, you'd run into a lull again & again. That's the nature of projects, at least every single one I've been in. Tis the nature of the beast. Just have some faith.

Perhaps that was worded a bit too strongly. Let me put it this way: I don't want to replace the whole team. That's the last thing I want. But participants who say they have time to donate to the project and then ignore it can't really be trusted to put all they can into it inthe future. Easpeccialy if they don't even show to point out they're still around. You've made every due date. That's good. I understand not everone can do what is asked of them, and accomadations will (and have) been made. I'm sorry for any miscommunication on my part. If anyone has any issues with a due date, or making schedule, or showing for a few weeks, just tell me. I'll do what I can do. Being the coordinator of this project, there's a lot I can do.

I know every project hits it's slow points. This one has had a few. But when some artists are making the date, and others are a total no-show, and don't respond to contact, they're off. Let me put it this way: Odds are, if you're reading this, you're safe. At least it means you're around.

I suggest you hold on for a little longer. Summer vacation's just around the corner and this is the time where school can be very time consuming. I have exams coming up, so don't expect too much from me this month(s).

People that do not show when they have time are slackers... but that's not your entire team.

Oh yeah, I know... but it doesn't mean hanging on to those people who haven't said a word since the start of the project. The project won't fail becuase of the artists, no it won't. There are people like you, The Joker, rpggamer180, who even can just pop in every once in a while to let me know "Even if I'm not working now, I'll be soon." I won't drop you. I'll save that spot on the front page 'till you can get around to working.

In ~3 months, this project will be a year old. I'm astounded. I have no problem waiting longer to find the team that will finsih with me. Some of them are here. Some people who are here won't be when that time comes. I appreciate the support they gave when they first gave things a try, but if they can't do it, it's not the end of the world. It's up to them, not me.

I gotta about half of my update finished. It's mostly just the rythms being completely redone. I am filling out the rest of the song how my current version sounds that's in the private wips forum.

Oh yeah Wynd_Balduram can do some nasty rock music. He submitted a really good FFMQ mix a little while back. If we're goin for a mainly rock based album that severly narrows the available artist list IMO.

Like Pu I'm gonna be hella busy the next month with school wrapping up and also there are some big events coming in for my work. Hopefully I'll get the update out soon.

I've been crazy busy with school, and that's not going to stop until the semester's out May 16 or so.

As for the genre change, if an electro/orchestral/bit of rock blend (like my old WIP now) isn't going to cut it, I'm afraid I'll be dropping out.

I like the word 'if'. World of possibility. Word of possibilities. Hehehe..

it wouldn't take much for your current WIP to meet what I have in mind. Just "Throwing in a Guitar" wouldn't exactly count as a suggestion, but I can see one fitting in nicely, and still keeping close to what you already have. If no one's asked for Stemage's (Metroid Metal guy, again. OCR name is GrantHenry) help, give that a shot. We have a few Guitarists on the front page, as well. I hope you don't drop, what you have so far has some great potential. But there's a while I can wait to see things develop.

On both subjects:

- I'll hold off on a new deadline for now. I've been nuts with school like everyone else. Search for good artists till Mid-May, then we can progress.

- I've asked GrantHenry if he had anyone contact him yet, no response yet. Either he's busy, or forgot he has an ocr account. He seemed to be way more into polishing everything the closer we get to finishing, so I'll just ask when the time comes. Otherwise, try to use the other guitarists on the list, yeah?

Avaris, I'll go check out that Wynd guy right now.

While you're on the subject, Abe, whats the deal with Sloprano? Are you doing the voice and music, or just the voice, or what? Up to you if you want to do it at all, but it would be so sick...

Thinking about the rock-change, maybe we could do something with that. I mean, it already has lyrics. And the idea of death-metal teris or something along those lines is getting me excited. What about the Sim City guy, too?

Man, that was so funny!

You know when Rock n Roll band members get old, and look like just regular people? Heehee... We can't give up on this. I love spambots. "Advisor Gets The Funding"? Remember all that? Anyone?

MaliceX:

Lenght? Uhh... 3-8 minutes sounds good. But if you're making it that long, it'd better kick ass.

Submission? Hop on the forums (second link on the first post) and post your WIP in the right section. If you don't have an account yet (as far as I can tell, you dont), just let me know, cause otherwise you wont see anything. If you already have one, just post it.

Or you can send me a copy by PM...

EDIT: Hey, waittaminute... Did you ever have a track? I have the old list from the front page, before the pseudo-cuts, and you're not on it? Why'd your name sound so familiar then? Crazy...

There is no way I'm gonna be able to do Andross in a rock style, I'm afraid (I'll be suprised if anyone can do it). Could you please drop me for that one? I'm still working on the Garry Oak mix, but taking on Andross's theme in any genre is hard enough, Rock is just impossible for me.

Did EMP drop out? I had done the vocals for it, but EMP said he'd do the music. If he dropped out, I might possibly be able to pick it up.

Almighty Tallest - At least we didnt lose you. You were commenting on that track's difficulty anyway, so no harm done. If no one picks it up, we can just drop it. Still looking forward to hearing Gary. YOu still going for something like Joe Satriani (Did I spell that right? Some of his stuff is real good...)

Abadoss - Yeah, we haven't heard from Sleepy Emp in months. Looks like it's up to you what to do with that track.

MaliceX - Thats what I get for not reading back one page... Sorry about the confusion.

Yeah we haven't heard from him in months. Abadoss do you think you can do sloprano in that orchestral/epic style as Sleepy emp did? because I really liked how it sounded. I know Pi already said that we moved over to a rock genre,but I don't think it would sound good in rock.But it's up do you.

Yeah, I'm still going for something Satriani-inspired. The only problems I have really are bass-related, I'm hoping LuIzA can help me out with that. I'll pick up another track if I can finish this one soon, there isn't very much for me left to do.

Pu Freak - Sorry, I feel pretty bad about leaving it this late. I'll get it done eventually.

I'm in the same boat, school vamping up a 'lil. I'm trying to add in ProTools as my DAW because it works so seamlessly with Reason, but I'm having some technical difficulties with Giga and Rewire and ironing it out is slowing me down.

Many apologies, but do remember that unless I truly am dead I do answer email and AIM. A little two way conversation is always nice, instead of just being talked down to on forums I can't track 100% and/or ignored when I do. Try to assume that producing free music amongst a life that demands money and schooling and attention to private matters is the typical "excuse" of us remixers, and not just lazy good-for-nothings realizing their do-nothing existence. Believe it or not, I'm doing YOU the favor, not the other way around.

I'll will for sure finish Dark Gaia before this project is completed by everyone else (I am paying attention believe it or not), if u want me to, and in return I'll appreciate your patience, understanding, and communication. However, if that's too much to ask, just drop me from the project. I do realize I've missed several deadlines as it is, and won't take it personally - no harm done. Thank you. - James
