Can I get a mirror of Tweaker's EHZ?
I'm uploading all my songs pertaining to this project to the Retro server as we speak. I'll edit this post with links when it's done.
Here they are:
Just to clarify, I am not completely dismissing your rendition Tweaker, although in my opinion there are some improvements that ought to be made for it to be truly 10 out of 10. The most important thing I think would be trumpets perhaps as the foremost sound, or something more lively and uplifting.
:U I love critisism on my stuff. In all serious though, I agree with it 100%, I thought it was relatively good at the time, but listening to it again after Blaze posted it, it's a load of bollocks. Don't use it.
Do stop with the orchestral masterpieces. It's getting very annoying reading it again and again and again and again and again.. and "capture the soul of a song"? Christ man, you need to stop watching anime. *runs*
Very well, I shall remove your rendition Cinossu from the chosen list of music since you yourself are dismissing it.
Hi everyone. Tweaker asked me to contribute to this project. Seems pretty cool, so I figured I'd toss my hat into the ring (haha get it...ring? eh heh...heh... ).
Those of you that know my music know that I tend to arrange a lot more, but I'm pretty sure I can swing some more conservative arrangements.
In any case, I was wondering what the consensus was on using a modified version of my Sonic 2 special stage remix. I can add a fanfare, pull out the 2P Results theme, and generally tweak it so that it's more or less just "special stage" music.
Tweaker's rendition is quite good. But I don't know... The music people are producing for this project straddle the line between remix and remastering; at the same time it sounds too new and too old. This goes for a lot of music people have produced for this project; finding the perfect balance is difficult to the point of nearly being impossible.
What you've done is good. Obviously, you are going to be more biased towards your own music, but I wonder if it can't be a little bit better - the tough part is, I don't actually know how to make it better; if anything, all I know is how to make it different.
What matters is that we do the best of our own abilities. Arguing musical preference is most likely a battle that cannot be won. What would probably be best for this project regarding music is everybody pool together their own mixes of each song in the game and then a vote taken for the cream of the crop.
Think of it like the Music Battle topic in the Fanart subforum, but we do the entire Sonic 2 OST.
NO, NO OVERR----Err, I mean, sounds great. Just don't arrange it too much.
I think that sounds awesome, particularly the strings in the background and the arpeggios. You really make the interplay between the D Major and C Major chords seem magical to me. However, I think it's arranged too much for what we want here. :P
I'm working on a version of the EHZ 2P music now. I like that song a lot.
Well, he did say he was going to rearrange it back to more closely match the original song. I don't think it should be chnaged much beyond that.
Throwing a chip in for my Metropolis Zone for the hell of it. Don't expect anyone to like it as for some reason FL buggered up the intro and I have no idea why. But still, it's here, whatever that means.
I'll also repost my Hilltop Zone, because I still dig the saxamaphone in it.
Aww damn, much better than mine: http://theantibib.sitesled.com/EmeraldHill.mp3
Also, for shits and giggles, some NES-styled Boss Music: http://theantibib.sitesled.com/BozzMuzak.mp3
For what it's worth, I love that NES one. XD
I have our Wing Fortress music right here http://rubbish.hapisan.com/wfz.mp3
Ooh, I like the Metropolis (especially the growling low synths -- make louder?), but could you go with something a bit more saw/charang styled than sine/square for the chords in the verse? Since the original used a synth-brass type of sound, I feel that would be more appropriate.
I dunno, square waves get old for me fairly fast.
.. and Casino Night is done. http://rubbish.hapisan.com/cnz.mp3
You know what would be really cool? To keep the FM style tunes, but with like 6 operator intruments, like a full DX7, rather than say, the FB-01 (which is very similar to what the Genesis has). I realize that's a tall order though, and FM synthesis isn't for the faint of heart.
One thing I'd like to know is are you guys using GYM/VGM rips (and just redoing the drums) to remaster these tunes with, or are you actualy rewriting the songs from scratch? Either is fine, in this situation at least. I'm just curious.
eek, title music.
I'm not too satisfied with it.
