The second link is pretty decent, sounds like Nujabes, but it definitely needs some work.

@ samosamo

yea the 2nd one is the newer mix, my favorite thus far. its only going to get better so thank you for the encouragement

@ Mpmaley

i think everyone who knows anything about real music enjoys Nobuo Uematsu. hes too good. probably couldnt compose bad music if you put a gun to his head and asked him to. also its risky to sample an artist so renowned so that's why i give props to anyone for having the balls to not only try it but also to put it out for the world to critique.

EDIT: hopefully a thread, forum or website can get started where people can come together with all their Video game music remixes. be nice to see what other people are doing with video game music.

Yup Yup!! It was simply an experiment. I've always wanted to sample a song from a video game and I love Nobuo Uematsu's creations. Thanks for the all feedback guys!! =)

The first one sounded quite cacophonous. The second was better, but it just repeated over and over w/ no variation. If you make a loop, at least stick some variations in there so it doesn't get boring.

Newgrounds media area is a great place to showcase work. Lots of artists there who are willing to give better critiques.

@ Zemzelette

wow i didnt even know about overclocked website, ty for that.

@ meraris

ty for reply. newgrounds definitely may be something to consider for the better quality of feedback, but some how i think this over clocked website could be even better if it has comment/reply function (havent had time to really visit the site beyond the homepage)

I like the first track better than the second. Although one thing I myself would have done, would be to change up the music once the actions scenes start rolling. Some heavy guitars and some drums. Just so its not repeative throughout the vid. Thats my 2 cents. now I'll just grab my popcorn and eat quietly. thank you

Edit: I Like the SECOND track better.. CK messed with my head and mixed them around on the two forums. But I'm 95% retarded anyways. SO WHO KNOWS

I for one can care less about rapping. I prefer instrumentals.

I think I just puked a little in my mouth a little (Actually I didn't but that's what the kids are saying these days, maybe that makes it right)

Why does everyone think that a remix involves repeating one line of a song over and over again with overlaid beats? Seriously you need to get out and explore some more music.

There is also VGmix http://www.vgmix.com/ Used to be a damned fine place, but crashed and lost everything a few times with the site being re-done each time.

As for OCRmix, You won't be likely to get your music in there, the standards are quite high when it comes to music these days. Basically how it works is, you post your music, then there are elected judges who judge your music, and if you get enough votes it goes on the site. (used to be a semi judge at OCR, would have ben in the voting crew if it werent for my lack of vocabulary when it comes to music, but knows what to listen to for things that are wrong and right in music, just lacks the words to express it.)

As for newgrounds, I have a healthy dose of hate for that site, they vote most things as pure gold that are terrible. The standards aren't very high, too low infact. (Not that I could do better, but still.)

As for your music, I'll have to be a little harsh, the first one is dreadfull, it really hurts the ears, badly infact, it is a bit of a strain to listen to.

The second one is by far the best, but Honestly, All I hear is som low rap beats and everything repeating it's self over and over again, as someone already said, that is a very bad thing since it bores the listener fast. I'm not too impressed by the length ether. But mostly, this is a rather boring mix.

I would sugest in the future to work on learning to use synths (or instruments) properly, possibly writting out the music first if you know how to and playing it. (or even seeking out the music written down on musical notes if you can read music.)Working on good making synths sound good can be hard. A tip can be if you are going to sample music and use it over and over again, put in some more synths, mix up the melody, posibly add in a few more samples that would fit. But what helps the best if you do the music from scratch, no samples. You organize the music in a style of music chosen (bosa nova, rock, metal, techno, whatever.)Then after you chose the style, pick out the proper synths in a music creation program (I might sugest tweaking them or looking for synth plugins on the net for the program.) then listen to hte piece and try to mimmic it in the music in style you have chosen.

Things to avoid are being repetative, and mixing up the mood or the tone of the music a bit. A good reference is if you have played FF13, you will notice almost all musical pieces are sort of remixes of one tune, and how you can convey a lot of moods and tones by using the same theme played in a different way with different instruments.

its hip-hop not rap. there is a difference.

definitely wasnt expecting everyone to like it so thanks for the honesty in replies. if you hate it, feel free to say so.

these were made quickly with tools almost anyone can get for free thru the net, its not suposed to be some professional sounding stuff, just meant to be something pleaseant and simple to listen too while you just relax or do some homework or reasearch and reading.

@ MJV

thank you for the tips. they are things aquari is already aware of its just going to take some time to take it to that level but is definitely a goal to make the music deeper and "less repetitive".

EDIT: if possible please let us know the kinds of music your are into (list a few songs, artist, or genres) when you post a comment on the youtube videos or reply here in the threads. Thankyou^_^

While this might be true, there is one thing that will always remain the same: Neither of them will EVER go with classical-sounding Final Fantasy scores.

As for the music I like, all sorts. Yes, even Rap and Hip-hop ... just not in my FF. Listening to those I almost expected Jay-Z to bust out with "Eorzea state of mind".

@MJV

I thank you for your response. And you weren't being harsh. Just being honest and I need as much critique as I can get. I had a lot of issues with that first song. I pretty much gave up on it plenty of times since I had so much difficulties with it. The sample was a part of the song that I really liked from Nobuo's piece. Ckmasters told me he enjoyed listening to it. And I was actually quite surprised when he told me that, so I just assumed I should share it with others to see how they felt. Obviously it failed but no worries^^; As for the second one, I spent more time with it but not enough to master it at all. Everything was done on my mother's computer during school break so I really didn't have access to any of the tools/hardware I use normally. I only spent about 2 hours total finishing it. It was just something quick to do and I enjoyed working on it.

I would love to incorporate synth sounds into my music someday. But since I've just started this whole music thing in January this year, I'm learning over time. Plus I need better equipment and such. But I really appreciate hearing your feedback.

@Xebius
Obviously a remix is any alteration to a song. Something that sounds different from the original. Exploring more music isn't going to be the only way to help the situation. I've listened to many other genres out there. I just need to keep practicing and receiving feedback from others will also help.
