ORC 107 - Monthly version [August]


Recommended Posts

- The Original Remixing Competition -


Welcome to ORC107.

Source Material

Last ORC's winner was Nutritious.

"Well, this is an oldie for me. This song is based off of something I came up with years ago when I got my first synthesizer keyboard. You could record up to 2, 6-track songs with it, so this one sat on the keyboard's memory until a friend unplugged it and erased all my data. This version of the song has been fleshed out a lot more than the original, which was my attempt at a Middle Eastern-type sound. Hope you guys enjoy."

Nutritious - Last Oasis: - MIDI


31th August Midnight US East Coast

I made a mix. Too little, too late?

First time in months I've touched Fruity Loops or my samples. Very rushed...it's 2:00 a.m. PST and I have to get up at 5:45 tomorrow (today) for school. Made the process hellishly frustrating, turned out a not-so-polished finished product. Repetitive. It's not so bad, though the guitar playing is (while I'm better than this, I'm not that good).

Characteristic excuses aside, I'm sad to see ORC die like this. But I've been gone for a while, so I guess I can't really talk.

Here's the mix, kind of downbeat, just a little bit jazzy.

The Swan Palm

I would be thrilled for any competition. Want to finish your mix, Nuts? For old time's sake? (not actually that long ago, haha)

Or anyone?

Or are we done here...

p.s. If ORC was revived, I would totally mix for it all the time! I'm getting back into computer music! Though I don't think I'll be remixing much video game music anymore.

p.p.s. sorry to Nutritious, the source tune is kind of buried in there. But, er, you can make a game of finding it! Fun!
