July 1st deadline is coming up for a few of you. @shredd, @Brandon Strader, and @Mak Eightman, looking forward to your first WIP at that time! :D

@wildfire, @RiverSound, @ZackParrish, still waiting on anything from you since June 1st and earlier. Please get back to me on the status of your involvement.

I won't have any time for a while, not sure if I will stay on the project or not.

Life happens sometimes.

Just got back from a week long Disneyworld trip with family. It was crazy but now I'm back and ready to dive right into this again. Please, if there are any remixers awaiting my feedback on their WIPs that got lost in the cracks in the last few weeks due to vacation, please let me know and I'll give them a listen and get back to you ASAP!

Also, @zykO, any luck on recovering your HD so you can send that WIP in? Looking forward to this one. :)

Having some life.. Too much life! Actually, now I have a son. I'm afraid you have to kick me out. Sorry.

Good luck with this project! 

Good bye OC ReMix, thank you. That was fun!

Hey, I'm in the same boat. Life has been crazy. My WIP isn't very good, and I have a lot less time on my hands then when I started on this. I'm at a point where I think I would need to start over entirely from scratch and I just don't have the time!

I think I'm going to need to drop out. Best of luck with the rest of the project!

Ouch, double punch right there and @nOkbient I felt was on a role with everything on his track. This is going to hurt the project greatly in terms of forward momentum. I understand real life happens but wow, I find out that my deployment was cancelled at last minute, I finally get back to the thread to find people dropping like flies. Lots of bad news all around it seems. Congrats on the son @Mak Eightman, it definitely won't be easy to manage or budget time for OCRemix work and parenthood but it is possible as you get into the groove of things, so best of luck to you there. @Brandon Strader, looks like that mix Mak Eightman was occupying that you were originally eyeing has now opened up if you'd like to switch and hop on over. Whew, now that that's out of the way, let's go down the list and see where we are at:

@pu_freak - looking forward to a more robust WIP or near finished product Aug 15th-Sept 1st!

@Silent Ice - You're so close to the end, get 'er done by Aug 15th-Sept 1st and let's get this track sent to the judges for some in depth feedback!

@Sbeast - looking forward to a more robust WIP or near finished product Aug 15th-Sept 1st!

@fxsnowy - You're so close to the end, get 'er done by Aug 15th-Sept 1st and let's get this track sent to the judges for some in depth feedback!

@wildfire - Please let me know if real life is going to be a problem or if you can pull it through but need more time by Aug 15th-Sept 1st!

@Moseph - You're so close to the end, get 'er done by Aug 15th-Sept 1st and let's get this track sent to the judges for some in depth feedback!

@~Faseeh~ - looking forward to a more robust WIP or near finished product Aug 15th-Sept 1st!

@shredd - Still waiting for any WIP at all from you. Please try to send one in by Aug 15th-Sept 1st!

@ZackParrish - I haven't heard from you since you signed on basically. It is past Aug 1st so unless you'd like to hop back on and reclaim the track, I've released it. However, this time, I'd like to see some WIP first before reclaiming the track now. Sorry, but got to keep the project moving forward. :(

@Supercoolmike - looking forward to a more robust WIP or near finished product Aug 15th-Sept 1st!

@lacifer - I haven't heard from you since you signed on basically. I need SOMETHING from you by Sept 1st or I'm unfortunately going to have to drop your track claim!

I'll probably need that September 1st deadline because I need to practice the guitar part and my skills are still a bit n00b. I expect it'll be fine tho.

So uhmm... I'm finishing up my track and was wondering... do you want us to submit a mastered track or a premaster? Couldn't find it in the topic even though I think it was mentioned (might be confused with one of the other albums...)

Premaster, however, I'd like to run your track one more time by the judges and then after that and whatever fixes they suggest, you send me a finished WAV and FLAC file and we'll get a single professional master-er to do all the tracks together. Thanks for the question and looking forward to your finalized track! :D

Typically for the albums I worked on before I only send a wav, not a Flac (or an mp3 for that matter). I'd suggest that's something either the mastering engineer or the album director can do better to make sure it happens consistently wrt. settings and tagging :)

Okay, we had a bunch of folks drop out leaving quite a few unclaimed tracks BUT, we got a few more turned in and finalized! So we're up to...*counts* 10 finished tracks?! Amazing! And looks like 2-3 in the making of being polished and finalized as we speak which will push us to 12-13 when they get sent in! However we need additional talent to cover the remaining tracks.

Thanks for those who got back to me, even if did not make the Sept 1 Deadline, THANKS for getting back with me. Communication is key and I still like to hear SOMETHING even if its 'life is busy but I haven't given up!' Just keep me informed of your interest and I'll keep you on the project.

Quick word to all those still awaiting on faux judges feedbacks, they're kinda swamped with real life atm but they'll get to them eventually and I'll pass on all critiques to you ASAP. Thanks for the patience! :)

Late to the party, but I'd like to offer my performance services on trumpet.   I can do tin whistle too as long as the key is in C, D, F, or G (silly diatonic instruments).

Also just FYI, despite the low post count I've been hanging around OCR since 2002 under a couple different user names.  Never had a good setup for recording until a couple months ago. 

Anywho good luck to all, let me know if I can help!

Darkflamewolf, 

I want to tentatively claim Theme of Loneliness.   I have and idea for it that I think I can execute very nicely, but I'd like to spend some time hashing it out before I 100% commit to it,  Give me a few days to see what I can come up with in terms of arrangement, and I'll give you a definite answer.  (i'm thinking a minimalist very mournful duet of trumpet and double bass recorded live)

Starting tomorrow, I'll be gone most of October and will be back in the last half. Until such time I make it back and post here that I am, please refer all questions, samples, WIPs to @Modus for the time being, he's stand-in director for now. Thank you.

 

Also, @wildfire and @Brandon Strader, you still in this or has real life snatched you away from us forever? :(

In case you didn't know, Brandon Strader has been banned from the forums permanently and won't be able to get notifications of your mentions or respond. See link below for more info. Whether or not that means he can/will still contribute, I don't know.

Wow, that is a shock @Jorito, well for now he's been removed since I don't have any personal way of contacting him and he's been rather unresolved with his involvement in the project. So I'm not sure his level of commitment to it. Either way, thanks for the headsup. BTW, I'm back everyone. Over the course of the week, I'm going to go through the track list and catch up with folks I've yet to hear from in a while.

I'm currently in transit and taking my studio over 2000 miles to my new life in Texas.  I can have the rest of the track in to you once I get settled and all of my gear set up but it's probably going to be a little while longer.

Cool @Garpocalypse, all I needed was some communication. I'm okay with the delay! Thanks for letting me know and congrats and good luck on your new life in Texas! May it treat you well! Looking forward to your final WIP that we'll send to judges for critique polishing.

To all remixers out there, currently on the project, those who have finished and those who have yet to sign on. @Supercoolmike is struggling with 'Last Dungeon', Track 07 on Disc 3. We've discussed this and he's looking for a second remixer to help collab with him in bringing his vision to light. I want to see him succeed and would appreciate someone stepping up to help him achieve this goal. I am pinging @Deedubs here only because he's done three tracks for us already and expressed interest in a fourth down the line depending on current projects and real life circumstances. Maybe this could be your fourth but in collaboration with Supercoolmike's vision for the piece? Either way, I'd really appreciate someone helping out. So if you can give a shout-out here if you are interested and we can get you two hooked up in pushing the track forward. Thank you.

 

EDIT: Also for those who I said I'd be removing your claim after the 15th, more tracks have now been opened up to claim as of today.
