  1. I think the final drum beat needs to be a SLAM, quite loud, and it will be perfect. Next we'll just need to see how it meshes with the Zone music.

    Due to being insanely busy the last few days, I haven't been able to comment on your progress Compsense. The versions are showing improvement, and definitely have a better sense of urgency now. I'd like to see more emphasis on the first and slightly less on the second. Not so much adjusting the attack on the first as a small increase in volume, and a slight decrease in the attack on the second note.

    That sounds better, but I'd drop the violins at the very end, completely.

    They sound cool, yes... in a terror movie. =|

    I thought it sounded great with the violins at the end. Shouldn't it sound like it comes from a terror movie? After all, it's literally the last seconds of your life, before you drown...

    Totally agreed. I think it sounds awesome and is completely fitting.

    I'm gonna have to side with ICEknight here... A stab at the end is fine, but to me the specific style you're using sounds distinctly out of place for a Sonic game.
    Also, to give it some more intensity, I would try placing the percussion (timpani, sounds like) much closer - that is, tone down the reverb levels and brighten them up a little. Possibly widen their stereo image somehow, too.
    I'd like to hear this fixed as well - the higher octave notes are a bit too prominent.

    I agree with this. I like the timpanis, I like the strings sliding upward. I don't like the lack of bass, the weak ending, and how blurry the strings get in the faster section. I also don't think something purely orchestral would fit a largely synth driven soundtrack.


    Unrelated, new Oil Ocean WIP: http://www.furaffinity.net/view/3062838/

    Intro instruments and snares are still going to be improved (less weak and whiny sounding in particular). Percussion in the third verse is just a rough sketch. Other than that this should give a reasonable example of the final product.

    Agree/disagree? Other thoughts?

    LOL, it's pretty cool but it reminds me more of Quake 3 or something than it does Sonic :v:

    If you're looking for a good way to contribute SFtheWolf, I'd not recommend trying to tackle OOZ or Metropolis. We've already got phenomenal pieces for those that are all but set in stone for inclusion in the final release. That said, if you're just looking for practice then by all means continue to refine your current version.
     
  12. And which would those be? (by who, where?)

    Come on now, they're linked in the OP. Yes, I actually went through and updated that. And not just recently either.

    Nobody told me this when I first started posted about working on it ages ago.

    Should I still finish the Death Egg you liked or not bother?

    I find that interesting. I wasn't interpreting Oil Ocean as being anything other than an imposing, industrial sprawl out in the middle of nowhere, but perhaps that has led me astray stylistically. I'm going to try to get it a little less "in your face" for the next version while hopefully retaining all or most of the grit.

    UPDATE

    New music goals -- Sweet Dreams/Ending Theme, Staff Credits, Hill Top Zone


    We've already had a few submissions for HTZ, but none so far have been mind-blowing. Steveswede, I put yours up in my list when it was asked for, so I'd encourage you to continue work on your piece. You've all heard my spiel on the staff credits enough by now, but not so much on the ending theme. There's only been one decent submission for it on the database (courtesy link), but I know there's enough talent to far surpass it.

    And a Happy Thanksgiving to all our American contributors! :)
     
  19. I'll admit, I'm only watching this topic (I have no technical knowledge whatsoever) but it would be nice if someone made a .zip file that contained all the remixed/remastered music -- most of the links are broken or useless for me. Please and thank you, and I'll probably write reviews on the tunes.
    That's all I wanted to ask. :)
