Mark Sparling - I liked the way you used the source. The 'chippy' style works good with this source.
Supercoolmike - Cool story, funny to read and the song fits perfectly with this. Great work.

Mark Sparling - Got a strange juxtaposition with the "serious" industrial-esque drums and the lighter, more cheerful leads. The end product is interesting but sounds a little like 2 separate tracks that have been mashed together.
gercr - Sounded a bit like a MIDI rip with a bitcrushed drum beat added. Not much more I can say other than that.

Mark : Simple and a bit plodding, but everything fits together soundwise, feels atmospheric and a bit moody. It picks up a bit in the second just like the midi. I honestly would have liked a little more exploration of the first part.
Gercr: Everything is fighting for space in the mix. Sounds are fighting each other for the same sonic register a bit too much.

Gercr - I would say that the plugin u used is leaning more towards the 16-bit side ( cuz u can hear a lil more details then the traditional primitive square,sine,Triangle from the 8-bit) The song sounds like its suppose to be tragic, but when I hear the background guitars it also sounds like this could've turned into a battle remix. very interesting piece here.

gerc - I really like that you have two instruments playing the melody panned left and right. Maybe you should start with the melody in the middle and then have the two later on, for some contrast and to build interest? I really like the percussion/congas in the background. My only problem with this is that, on the second time through the melody, very little has changed and so I started to lose interest. You could maybe start with less instruments playing at first and then bring more in for the second time or maybe change the lead instrument. I really like the arrangement, but I think that there could be more variety.
