Terranigma - Sadness (PRC233)
Dec 10, 2012 bundeslang
Hoboka - Good introduction. Very relaxing, very catchy. I like the part around 2:10 a lot. The end is a little abrupt.
Trism - Again, keeping the slowness worked out. There's not much sampling in the song, but that's in line with the source. A little more variation could have make it even better.
OneUp - You kept the slowness of the source as well, but speeding it up might have worked for this genre. I like the idea you have.
Majorjazzman - I didn't expect this, very creative idea. The last part is a little boring.
Evktalo - The vocals in the first part are a good addition to the song, I like the way you mixed it together with the second part.
This was one of the most difficult votes to decide for me in a while.

OneUp had the production there, for sure, but I could really tell that he didn't feel inspired for this one - either that, or the music just reminds me SO much of those mall musicians...sorry brah =p
Trism - man you had a LOT of potential to get up to the top as I loved the textures and compositional nuances, but it felt very rushed and there was a lot of unpleasant dissonance. Also, that violin sample has to go, it's wayy too fakey and ugly sounding. There's lots of good free stuff out there for you if you're interested in making the effort to go looking (like Sonatina Symphony and even some better soundfonts). I was in your shoes for the longest time, and trust me, if a Hobo can improve, so can you :3

OneUp = Very original idea with the Reggae. I would've never thought of going that direction so much respect!
Trism = Nice orchestration with your lines and good samples, but I thought it could do with a bit more variation throughout.
evktalo = Kudos for being the only vocal entry! I thought it was a good start but just found the overall arrangement lacking.
Overall I feel that everybody did a great job and would love to hear everybody's versions more fully-fleshed and finished.
