I have to be honest with you -- a couple of the sounds you used were definitely not 8-bit. For the most part, though, it's an excellent retro cover.
I know - because to use 8-bit sounds for them woulda cheapened it :P
thanks for the review!
When I heard the intro, my first thought was, "Bleh. Probably put a ripped MIDI through cheap synths..."
Then the guitars kicked. Consider my mind BLOWN.
My one complaints are there should have been some rhythm guitar during the guitar vs. synth solo, and the solos were just a tad sloppy. Otherwise -- FLAWLESS.
As much as I like electronic music (I make it myself) I hate how repetitive and boring most techno gets --- not the case here. :D It's good to hear some fresh life breathed into overused synths. It's really no wonder you're at the top of the food chain right now. ;)
It's good to see someone doing good Pokémon remixes, given OCR has a whopping FOUR of them (picky motherlovers...)
I notice you didn't upload Time of Parting here, so I'll just go ahead and review both at once.
You do an excellent job of capturing the emotion of the original music, as well as overlaying new harmonies. Your compositional skills are apparent in your work. My one complaint is that a few of the instruments sound obviously fake. The pianos and harps sound wonderful, but the guitars and wind instruments -- to name just a couple -- sound kind of cheesy. I think your remixes would sound ten times better -- in other words, absolutely FLAWLESS -- if they were created with either 1) better synths or 2) live instruments (not that I expect you to have a bunch of those handy :P)
Keep up the good work!
Trust me, if I had better software, namely anything other than garageband, I would definitely be using better soundfronts. I am not exactly perfectly happy with them either. Considering I am using garageband for these, this is really the best I can do. I agree completely though. I really need better equipment, or a live orchestra haha. Time of Parting is uploaded on here btw
I used to think the Tetris theme took the cake as the one song in the whoe world that gets on your nerves the fastest. This remix just redeemed it. \\m//
I agree with kliker...
This is terrible. I'm sorry, but I can't offer anything constructive...
It was obviously done in a sequencer, and it doesn't sound good. Rock doesn't work in sequencers, so don't try to make it happen.
This track is AWESOME. Even Chuck Norris would be proud...had he created Mario. xD
I don't have that problem. It plays just fine on mine, even in NG.
Your 8-bit remixes are both really good. Makes me wonder how FF7 would have LOOKED on the NES, now that I how how it would have SOUNDED. High FIVE!
