Troppe Houseland - Mario Kart 64


Recommended Posts


I do like this arrangement even if it is more conservative.  I feel like there's enough going on with the arrangement to put this over the OCR bar. 1:29-1:33 is a very nice change-up and transition to the next section.

Where you might run into trouble is the production side of things.  The percussion is very dry with little to no reverb. 1:34-1:48 the string lead is very blurry and hard to make out the attacks of the notes because they run into each other and have slower attacks.  Consider changing that to another instrument or using a different string sample (one that has more accent or articulation on the attacks).

0:18, 0:22, 0:26, 0:30 have a high pitched instrument at the top of the chord that stands out a lot.  It's the flute-like sound on top of the chord.  It's standing out more than I think you want it to.  I'd recommend to reduce it's velocities in this opening section or consider using a little EQ to attenuate the top end of it so it's less harsh.

I'd also like to recommend more variation in the drum patterns, it's mostly the same without any drum fills after 0:32.  You do drop elements out here and there and reintroduce them, but that's minor variation.  Give us a change!  It would really help take the track to the next level.

Give some thought to my suggestions, I'd like to see where this can go.  Great start, very fun track!

I've reviewed your remix and have returned it to Work-in-Progress status, indicating that I think there are some things you still need to work on. After you work on your track and feel that it's ready for submission to OCR, please change the prefix back to Ready for Review and someone will review it again. Good luck!
