To submit or not to submit

Recommended Posts

Hello, OCR community.  I have been a big. big fan of OCR for years, I have been religiously listening to the remixed content here, my kids go to sleep with OCR soft melodies, my tabletop games are played to the sound of energetic OCR remixes: I'm a lover of video game music and this place is a temple to me.

For years, I have worked hard to try and create remixes as good as my favourite remixers here, people like Argle, zircon and bLiNd, only to name a few. I specialise in Phantasy Star. (Specialise is an understatement, I worship the series) I have quite a few remixes published on my blog, Youtube and Soundcloud and gathered quite the happy following since my first remix in... 2006 if memory serves right. I submitted my very first remix here back then but it was refused, deemed "too close to the original", which is really accurate, it was more or less an orchestral cover more than a remix. I was also 13 years younger and had an ego that was somewhat very easy to bruise.  I had two kids since then, I matured.  A little ;-)

Since then, my remixing skills have improved a lot and I have learned to add my own personality to my work. I'm not a musician, I write everything by ear, have been writing originals since around 1998.

So, my question, is there a way to quickly evaluate the OCR potential of my work without having to submit one by one?  It's all here, if you want a looksee.

 

Looking forward to contributing to a community that has given much, much to me in the last two decades.

There is a forum for this actually!

https://ocremix.org/community/forum/12-post-your-game-remixes/

You can post what you want to have evaluated in this forum and tag it "ready for review." There is a staff of people who can give a basic idea of readiness and also valuable feedback on their track. It can be somewhat slow (a week or two sometimes) but it works. Also, people not on the staff can chime in. I sometimes do that for orchestral/jazz which are the two things I am most proficient in.

Ahh thank you, I should have spotted that earlier.

Keep in mind that except for my latest, which is still being worked on, none of my Remixes are opened to modification, most of them have already been published for years and for all the obvious reasons, I don't want to edit them. That's why I wanted to know if they were proper OCR material in their current state.

That's fine. If somebody gives you feedback, it's up to you whether to apply it or not. If you post it and just ask "is this ready, curious, not willing to revise because reasons." people should honor that. Go ahead and post some things!
