Re: WIP Ocean Loader 3

Buzzard, Admittedly, I am no sound engineer, either, so all I can give you is an enthusiast fan's personal opinion, but before I get into that, let me tell you what I think of your arrangement, because that may fix some of your mixing issues, too. I think the original's bass line in your remix is pl...

Re: New Release - Firelord Symphonic - (a nod to Glyn)

It is actually astonishing to me that you managed to "re-enact" Glyn's original arrangement just by ear. :shock: I would've thought you contacted Glyn for his original project file and maybe got some MIDI sequences off of him... I guess not!

And I really like your book analogy, too. :thumbsup:

Re: New Release - Firelord Symphonic - (a nod to Glyn)

Whoo, boy, this is a tough one, Peter! On one hand, the technical achievements of this remix (...of a remix :-) ) are undeniable. The instrumentation is as good as one can get without hiring a real orchestra in Prague (right, Chris? ;-) ). To me the absolute highlight of this arrangement are the new...

Re: New Release - The Great Bath

Very nicely done! Your orchestration is dynamic and emotional - I really enjoy it!

This is also one of my favorite Turrican II tracks...

PS: Have you heard the "official" orchestrated version, yet? It's just absolutely superb: https://chrishuelsbeck.bandcamp.com/tra ... eat-bath-5

Re: New Release - Tai-Pan...

You just ruined whatever plans I had for this evening, because instead I just keep listening to this remix over and over again. :D :worship: I'm especially fond of the second part of it that focuses on subtune #2. I'll be honest, on first listen the arrangement sounded a bit strange to me, but I qui...

Shadowfire: very cool prog-rock remix! I really enjoy it!

Multiple Myeloma: well, that really sucks, but I'm glad to hear you have become cancer-free! And thanks for letting us know, I really appreciate you being open about it.

Re: New Release... Nemesis/Gradius (The Arrival - 1st Wave)

First off, may I say what a privilege it is to listen to your remixes on RKO! It's always great to see that an original SID composer is still active on the scene. (And just between us, to this day I still prefer your Ocean Loader SID over Mr. Galway's. My friend and I used to spend countless hours p...

Re: Bombo (Vocal mix)

A couple of people have commented on the vocoder bits Ahem, like... me. :) I agree with this absolutley but wanted to clarify that its not actually a vocoder at all but rather a free virtual voice VST called AlterEgo by Plogue Ah, a light-bulb just went up in my head! Of course, now it makes sense!...

Re: Arpeggios in Sids

You have a few tools at your disposal: SID2MIDI - I've had pretty good luck with this over the years. Not as precise in some cases, but most of the time it nudges me in the right direction. SIDDump - Honestly, I haven't had the need to use this one, yet, but if I were at a total loss, I'd seriously ...

Thank you!

As you may or may not have heard, today I was honored at the ROTY 2018 award show. I did not come here to boast about this - on the contrary, I am very humbled by it. In fact, I'm still very much shell-shocked about it. :shock: But it also made me think a lot all day, so bear with me as I get a litt...

Re: daXX no longer featured on AmigaRemix?

I like the new "copyright notice" on RKO (even if it's not called that and it's probably not even a legally binding one), but if you want to take it a step further, you could implement something similar to what Soundcloud is doing: https://help.soundcloud.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003566748-Creative-...

Bandersnatch (Netflix)

Just "played it through", or "interactive watched it", or whatever you want to call it. There's a nice nod to the sound of the Commodore in it (since the story takes place in the mid-80s), and as I was watching it I couldn't help but think that one of the characters really reminded me of somebody......
