On vacation this week, so I had to get a bonus mix done early. Looking forward to what everyone else comes up with! https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8-q7hg2GtQPZzRReUxFYmktcUU/view?usp=drivesdk

I Can't Xeen Very Well in This Cave

posted in PRC347 on Apr 30, 2017
When I was listening to this track for the contest, I immediately thought a reggae beat would fit perfect. Originally went with a swing feel, but it started sounding too much like another contest entry I've done in the past, so I switched over to straight beats. I feel good seeing as how I essentially tripled the original's loop time, but I didn't even hit 2 minutes with this one lol.
I've never done a DnB-style mix before, so I figured let's do it. I definitely had some beginner woes trying to pick out synths, but I'm glad I went through the experience. Now I at least have a smidgen of experience to build on the next time I try something like this! Entry: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8-q7hg2GtQPN0dNNUhRamQ0WWc

Beware of the Voodoo

My entry! https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8-q7hg2GtQPQnRMalJvSWhldFE

I was originally going to go with a Middle Eastern/Indian style with sitar and the like, but the longer I listened, the more it started to sound like reggae. So, I went ahead and threw the bass line down in a swing pattern, and everything else sort of fell into place. I feel like there's something that needs to be added to the mix, I just can't put my finger on that particular something... Anywho, I had a good experience experimenting with a new style, barring the artist's block I got in the middle.

On My Own

Ah, Legend of Dragoon! Good game, good game. This was one of those games my oldest brother had and I played, but didn't have the chance to beat because he moved out and took it with him. I did get to beat this game finally within the past year or so, and enjoyed it very much. Having the chance to listen to this song outside of the game showed me just how fitting this theme was for Rose. Anywho, I had to get my entry done quick, as I won't be able to work on music for the next week starting tomorrow. I went for a slower, hip-hop/R&B type feel, with some synths thrown in the mix later on.

Spark Mandrill SNES TMNT

Free round, with no extra accounts needed. Guess it's time for me to stop lurking the forums and throw an entry in. I was working on a SNES TMNT IV style cover of Spark Mandrill when the contest started, so that will be my entry: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8-q7hg2GtQPcnFDRFlTMTlvakU

Interesting side note: TMNT IV only used 6 of the 8 SNES channels for music. I stuck to that rule, which was a little difficult to implement on this song since MMX used all 8. Maybe this type of cover is not the best to enter contests with, but eh, I'm entering anyways!
