BadAss: Boss Themes: Volume I - History


Recommended Posts

ed;256117']MaliceX:

Lenght? Uhh... 3-8 minutes sounds good. But if you're making it that long' date=' 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...[/quote']

Yeah. I did... :\ I was doing the Golden Siver remix track... 8O:cry::?:nicework:

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 think I can do that. I just need to get my recital over with. Orchestral is my forte. Rock, not so much.

James George - No prob, school's everyone's problem. Thats why no big cuts or changes will probably follow until some time like June, most likely.

ShinnyMetal - See above, for the most part.

MaliceX - I realised that shortly after I posted that... That's what I get for not bothering to read one page back, and instead jump to the first post to see where you were...

Alright, I really want to get back in on this. I'm fully operational and ready to let loose.

So...what tracks are left for remixing? I don't know if the list on the first post was updated or not.

Pretty much, it's trustable. I have to update it by putting on MaliceX, updating the genres, but thats it, I think.

Alright, then in that case, I'll take Dr. Roboto. *Does the robot.*

One question, though. Is that his boss theme from the first Sonic?

Doesn't matter. YOu can pick the theme from whatever Sonic you want or you could add several Robotnik themes in one mix. Just make sure it's still a good boss theme

For sure.

- I just spoke to a freind of mine who plays guitar. He's psyched about it, so we might see something from him.

lol @ Pi.

Alright...well, I think I'll choose the Final Boss Theme from Sonic 3. A suitable theme for Dr. Robotnik, I'd say. Plus, it's my favorite out of any theme he has had.

*Gets to work on it.*

I'll definately be sending you a WIP sometime soon, Pi. Also, can we mix Genre's? I've no problem with writing Rock stuff, but I like to add influences of Techno as well.

I wouldnt want to exclude artists, so yes, you can mix genres. Just don't stray too far. If he doesn't mind, I'd like to quote something anorak told me in a PM exchange we had while discussing off-site artists...

I don't mind the switch to rock. Getting the album to play as, well, an actual album is something that a lot of the projects here miss out on. They feel more like...playlists, you know? On the other hand, my thoughts on the negative side have basically already come up: we could alienate some of the valuable mixers we are hanging on to, and some of our source tunes could be very difficult to remix as rock songs. I'm not sure what to do with Metroid, for instance. I'll have to listen to it again. And TAT (the-almighty-tallest) said andross would be hard, and I don't blame him. We might need to rearrange the list a bit, just for the sake of the music.

Covers it, basicly. I've mentioned in older posts that it's a good goal to work for, that is "radio quality". Some mixes have the feel to being actually music, and some you know are remixes (not saying that's a bad thing). A good track is one that everyone can listen to, without having to know the source music to really appreciate it. And for this project, it's one you can listen to on the radio.

...Perhaps thats a bit strong. Most rock stations aren't really covering where most of this will go, but it's a good comparison. I have a feeling I'll regret saying that later, but yeah, it's a good way to say "do good work".

Yeah, I suppose thats better. Anorak said it, I'll restate it. Avoid a "playlist" feeling. Most albums here have it. RotS doesn't in my opinion. RotC doesn't either. But RotC is one flowing track broken up, it's supposed to have that fell. And it was pulled off very well. That's more what I want. Avoid a playlist feel, and execute that very nicely to make a good album.

Alright, Pi. I can do that. I've just the guy to record for me, as well. (www.myspace.com/anchoredcross)

Hell, maybe I'll even work with him on this mix. I like his style and I think it'd be interesting to hear it in play along with mine.

As for "Radio" quality, you might have to hook me up with some soundfonts, since the ones I have aren't all too great (you can check out my newest WIP thread for a taste of what I have). But other than that, I think I can deliver what you want for this thing. It's just too bad I don't have any of my Guitar gear up here. I'd live record my stuff in a heart-beat (not that I'm all that great anyways xD).

The Joker:

Well...now you're giving me ideas. Rock, with Techno influences and an Orchestra. Complete with, uh...more Techno? xD

I don't know if it's too late, but can I...

1.) Recommend a boss: Dark Samus. She's bad, she's black and glowy, and she has a pretty cool song when you first fight her in MP2. Kraid or (more likely) Ridley could also substitute here.

2.) Unofficially contribute to that remix/do it- If you would like a remix of that tune I mentioned above for Dark Samus to add to the project, I'll get working on it ASAP. I missed registration (curse homework for all eternity!), but would love to help out if I could. If not, that's alright. I'm looking forward to this and literally buzzing with anticipation for when it's released.

I'd love to remix one of the EX boss themes off of a Touhou game, preferably Fujiwara no Mokou from Imperishable night. But I don't know if I can keep the commitment if I say I can... No free time with my homework and stuff getting in the way. Add to the fact that I'm lazy AND slow and... well...

I'd like to. If I'm 100% sure I can I'd do it.

ed;261139']...Registrations?

If you're allowing them, sign me up. I'll just start working on it this weekend anyway, for the heck of it if you will. I'm starting to think that the Final Battle 2 (where Samus fights the Emperor Ing for the second time) would be much more re-mix friendly. Who knows, I'll just start on it.
