Welcome to the Creative Media Showcase, the thread for showing off all your creative talents. Whether you're a budding Bruno Mars, an aspiring Adele or a wannabe Westlife, come here to post your recordings and receive some feedback in the process. Whatever your style, if you love singing or playing an instrument and want some comments on your work then here’s the place for you. Prefer the cinematic side of things? Feel free to post your film and animation work here too.[a id]rules[/a id] The types of post to make here include:

Covers of songs
Songs you've written & recorded
Collaborations (work between one or more PC member - credit all members!)
Riffs/tunes needing critique
Electronic/synythesised compositions
Any home videos/animations
Reviews/comments of other people's work
Requests for collaborations - simply post the style & instruments you require
Tutorial/lesson videos for playing songs/instruments

And always ensure to follow the General Entertainment rules (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=296359).
[a id]review[/a id]Comments & ReviewsPossibly the most important part of this thread is reviewing other people's work and providing comments of what they've done well and of how to improve. When posting your own work, try taking the time to review the person's above you too - whilst this is not mandatory, it is courteous. To give a helpful review, simply include what you liked about the work and what you think could be improved - it doesn't have to be long but every comment is appreciated.

[a id]collab[/a id]CollaborationsThis is a new feature of the Media Showcase. We encourage members to work together on their projects and possibly even start recording some pieces together, so if you're interested in working with other members to make music then this is the place for you. Simply post stating which instrument(s)/position(s) you play, the style of music you wish to produce and what kind of members you are seeking to produce it with and hopefully there'll be someone matching your style to join with. When replying to collaboration requests, reply via VM or PM, not in this thread as to avoid clutter, but be sure to post any work you produce here for everyone to hear!

[a id]featured[/a id]Featured WorkEvery so often when a particularly popular piece of work is submitted, it'll be added to this 'Featured Work' list for everyone to see. If you want to see a piece of work here then make sure to post a comment or two about it and it may well be added.

Great cover, Jake :o It's...extremely difficult to give criticisms, not only because you did a wonderful job, but because I know real life vs. recording- especially when you lack more equipment than your voice and internal mic- are very different. And I don't know a thing about good production materials, so I can't really offer you any advice there. :( I would suggest you open your mouth a little wider when you sing (whoa dejavu just happened for some reason), but how could I when I have the same problem? :p You may just prefer that style of singing anyway, and I wouldn't want to discourage you from being unique. That high note near the end was a little rocky, but you brought it down with a really nice vibrato which evened it out. :D

I would really like to collaborate with somebody- my priority at the moment is finding a producer, though a songwriter or fellow coverer would be cool too. Here's my soundcloud (https://soundcloud.com/moooonpie). I don't have very many recordings up and they're all pretty shoddy, but should give you some idea of my sound and style. Let me know if you're interested or have any advice to give a production nub like myself.

Looking forward to seeing more work here! (Thank you AlexOzzyCake and/or whoever's idea this was to make this thread! I'm really excited! also, let me know if I didn't post properly.)

That's what happens when my webcam sucks, I have no vocal training/technique, and I only do one take and don't care what it sounds like! But thanks for the positive comments and the critique, I appreciate it!

Just to comment on your latest recording, I have to mention that your vibrato is fantastic. Like seriously, I'm loving it. That and the piano playing is great, as is your singing. Honestly I have nothing to really compare it to (because I have no idea what the original is =x), but great job!

I'm doing a little project where I kind of mess with sounds of Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald. Particularly I'm playing around with how certain sounds harmonize together and making creative rhythmic beats. For now, I'm building off of someone else's tabs, but as I get more accustomed to dealing with the music, I plan to build it all from scratch.

Honestly, I'm not sure the music really flows too well... It seems really sporadic and a lot of the notes don't really seem like they fit the music. That's not to say the piece isn't good though, there are some parts that flow really well and sound much better than the original (eg when it first goes into the POKÉMON screen), but some bits aren't so good (eg when May's riding her bike) and they somewhat spoil the music for me :( The idea you're working with is great and I'd love to see more pieces like this, but perhaps making your own original tunes could be worth a try so you're not having to fit in with a pre-determined style? Just an idea :) Although in saying that, I can't wait to see the building it all from scratch version!

Shame this thread isn't more active.

guitargod- I enjoyed the experimental beats. I loved how the movement of the pokemon (especially at 0:24) flowed with the sounds so well. I do think you ought to pay close attention to the drums to help make more smooth transitions. Listen to folks like Madlib and prefuse 73 for some examples on how to sample well.

So I only make recordings when I'm home alone, and jumped at the chance to record a cover of Skinny Love by Bon Iver when the house was clear. A few notes before listening: Listen at a low volume, please, my piano is ungodly loud which frustrates the hell out of me, and my voice gets insanely loud at a couple of points. At about 3:45 things get quieter and it's easier to hear my voice. Of course, that's pretty much the end. Click to Listen (https://soundcloud.com/moooonpie/skinnylove-sorry-it-sounds). Here are the lyrics to help with clarity:



Come on skinny love just last the year
Pour a little salt, we were never here
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

I tell my love to wreck it all
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Right in this moment this order's tall

And I told you to be patient
And I told you to be fine
And I told you to be balanced
And I told you to be kind

In the morning I'll be with you
But it will be a different kind
I'll be holding all the tickets
And you'll be owning all the fines

Come on skinny love what happened here
We suckled on the hope in light brassieres
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Sullen load is full, so slow on the split

And I told you to be patient
And I told you to be fine
And I told you to be balanced
And I told you to be kind

In the morning I'll be with you
But it will be a different kind
I'll be holding all the tickets
And you'll be owning all the fines

Who will love you?
Who will fight?
Who will fall far behind?

And now all your love is wasted
And then who the hell was I?
And I'm breaking at the britches
And at the end of all your lines

Before I show off my stuff...

GuitarGod-Honestly not sure what to say. It's an interesting experiment though with the sound you're making. I'd figure just a bit more practice, smoother transitions, and more experimentation, and you'll get better. It takes time, but keep it going!

Outfox-Definitely first thing I noticed, you have a beautiful voice, definitely a whole lot of potential if you got some formal training! I don't know the song, but I enjoyed it and your piano, even though there was a lot of clipping in the recording. Perhaps put your recordings through an audio editor of some sort and normalize it in some parts.

So on to my stuff. I've basically got a whole youtube channel dedicated to pokemon music, either enhanced mixes, or a remix of some other game theme with a soundfont (MIDI instrument set) I made myself.

You... I can't... Wow. Your voice is honestly beautiful. I won't lie, I loaded the link expecting to hear some average karaoke recording or something, but then... just wow. I was honestly stunned. Your voice is utterly amazing, I want to hear so much more from you. Literally the only criticism I can think of is the recording quality. The song you chose suits your voice perfectly, you sung it incredibly well and your piano skills are nothing to be laughed at either. My only suggestion is please get better recording equipment so we can hear you more clearly! I even had to link this to my friends to show them lmao. I'll be contacting you soon about potential work we could do together if that's okay with you! :D

Honestly I have the same comment for every single one of the videos you posted (other than the Lavender one because I'm too afraid to listen to that :D); they sound soo much better than the originals. You've brought them up to the quality of being individual songs and that's an impressive feat for something like the background music of a route in Pokémon paha. What I would like to see though is something original from you - the way you've created these pieces has made them sound spectacular so I'm really interested to see what you can do when creating an original piece. If that's not your style or doesn't appeal to you then so be it, but I think it'd definitely be worth trying if you haven't already. Also I'm curious, what did you use to make these? I didn't recognise some of the effects :3

Thanks! I'm glad you like them :).

Here's an original song done by me a while ago. I didn't mix it very well since, at the time, I just started messing with more high-end audio editors, and I didn't have any real EQ plugins to help.

FcPk1q6RXds

I haven't got the motivation or inspiration yet to finish any other originals. I would like to, though! I would also like more tools... especially a better guitar plugin lol.

BTW, the program I use for laying out the MIDI tracks is an oldie called Cakewalk Pro 8... then I import the MIDI into Sony Acid Music Studio (for my more realistic sounding songs). I then use a VST program called native instruments komplete 7 and sometimes EWQL (but I lost EWQL recently since my hard drive crash, blahh :( ) for the individual instruments. For the final mixing and mastering, I use Izotope 4. For the route 3/4/22 theme, I used the same instruments you hear in the Pokemon Black and White games, (a MIDI soundfont), which I just edit it through cakewalk while having the soundfont loaded up through a program called BASSMIDI Driver.

That's pretty much my whole set XD.

Seee, this is proof that you should be doing original stuff! I won't lie, it is a little repetitive, but that's honestly the only big criticism I have for the song and that's impressive considering it's your first original piece (?). The 'guitar' you've used is great and the song flows wonderfully, I really enjoyed listening to this! I'd love to hear more - if you ever plan to upload any others let me know :)

Sush you it's wonderful! I'm just wondering if gets painful closing your eyes that tight... ;p Your voice is great (as always) and the bits where you think you've messed up are adorable, and the guitar playing sounds completely accurate! The only tiny bit that you might want to think about is the higher notes like "It's too cold outside", your voice wobbles a bit hehe x] Out of interest, what chords are you playing here? The version I learnt seems completely different but still sounds recognisable so I'd love to know if you have them!

It's the same chords, just a full step down (no capo) because my voice isn't nice when I try to sing it in the right key (I can do it, but it falters after the second chorus). And voice wobblings I attribute to one: falsetto sucks for me and two: so many attempts, my voice can only hold out for so long =P But thanks for the positivity!

I assumed you'd done something like that so tried it myself but couldn't get it to sound like your's haha. Mine still sounds right (I think?) but your's is much nicer. I'll upload a .mp3 of it soon to compare! (No voice though, I suck at that bit x])

Pokemon X and Y Themes [Main Post]



Hello! I've been messing with FL Studio lately, and I created a couple of custom themes upon thinking about Pokemon X and Y. There's about four to share right now, but I'm constantly working on newer ones (the first soundtrack was made only half a month ago). I'd love it if someone can give me comments/concrit (constructive criticism) or even better - work together!

--
1. Pokemon X and Y Collab - Evil Team Leader

GxdCykqabDk

I was so exited to make a collab with the famous composer ElectricMudkip, and here's the outcome! Enjoy the fast-paced battle theme for the Evil team Leader!



2. Pokemon X and Y - Route 1

q0EwIUUQGJQ

Something simple, relaxing, catchy...perfect for Route 1! (that, and I'm just LAZEE).



3. Pokemon Phoenix Rising 'Remaster' - Romanti

T26ddEjH4WI

This wasn't actually composed by me but another guy called EpicRPGRemixes. We've been sharing our stuff and I wanted to give his piece a quality overhaul, so here it is!



4. Pokemon X and Y Fanmade - Lumiose City [Night]

gyZpStbyXwA

Lumiose, the capital of the Kalos Region. I picture Paris, at night, with the full moon dangling under the stars. The Eiffel tower's glimmering gold, and I sit there at a roadside cafe, watching as the wonders unfold before my eyes...

WAIT. DON'T CLOSE THIS TAB YET. 1:40. BRIDGE SECTION. AH.


5. X and Y - Village of Spring/Pokemon Ambient - Tricott Town

25gW3HfZK7w

This theme is my interpretation of a spring city in X and Y, as well as the 'official' theme for a fan-made Pokemon project - Pokemon Ambient (you can find it in the game development forums here). I'm still venturing into unfamiliar territory, so hopefully this one isn't going to be that bad :P Enjoy!



6. X and Y - Wild Pokemon Encounter

eONucJSyZBc

My latest and only battle-styled theme! Learning my stuff from another battle theme, I understood the elements of making a theme like that and completed this in about eight hours. Enjoy! If you have difficulties hearing the middle part of the theme's melody, try using Headphones or Earpods. They somehow work much better and you can hear them easily.



7. X and Y - Route 3

Ua7jcRVNY7U

When I tried coming up with a good style for this specific route, I started off by listening to the themes of BW2 and eventually stopped at a city theme (you probably know what it is). I then decided to mess around with its percussion and piano pattern and, later on, everything else, hence the name 'Theme Revamp' instead of a 'Remix' - Remixes keep the original melody, while 'Revamps' do not (at least, not in my opinion :P) It starts out similar, but starting from the middle section, it's quite different when compared to the original.

Since this is my most complicated piece of work yet, I hope you all would enjoy it!



8. City of Tranquility

XmFIFiXVWFA

Designed to be the counterpart of the theme below, City of Tranquility has a bit of hope and windy feel to it from time to time.



9. City of Souls

1xDv8WGfXMw

Preferably a ghost town theme since it's pretty melancholy if you ask me. This is what my friend pictures when listening - 0:00 - 0:13 | Relatively quick glimpse of the town's overview. There are a lot of gray stones, colored stained glass mosaics, and metal gates with spikes on top of them though not very forboding). Gates and fences are everywhere, protecting the scarce grass growing in people's yards.

0:14 - 0:49 | A singular boy is exploring the town for the first time, noticing that everyone is staring at the ground glumly. He decides to explore more of the allyways (especially at 0:32), where he sees many people quietly playing instruments for some pocket change. Though they don't look impoverished, they are certainly disheartened.

0:50 - 1:16 | He goes down a path that no one seems to be walking down. As he travels down it, he notices it's brighter, and has grass and pink flowers on either side of him. There are only low fences, easily able to be stepped over, shielding the plants, contrasting with the completely protected grass in people's front yards. The place gets brighter and brighter until he looks ahead. There, he finds a singular tombstone, with flowers already there. It's not certain if they're fresh or fake, but they give no smell, only beauty. He can't read the writing on it, but believes that it's not actually a person buried, but an idea.

1:17 Onward | The boy finally figures out what's underneath the tombstone, and it gives him hope. He gets up and walks away, revitalized and encouraged for some reason. No one ever knows what he discovered, and no one ever knew he came there, but it changed his life forever.



10. Seaside Town

0DF5p6ZSquM

The name says it all, really. A joyful one in 3/4 beat (same used in waltz, so it does have that dancey feel to it).



11. Hometown Theme

My first soundtrack, so I wasn't that experienced back then. The volume's soft, so I'm sorry about that ;_; After a short while, I've changed it a little to make it a 'fast' version. Both of them are down there -

Alrighty, Fenne-Kun (Or whatever your real name is >3>;), I've already given you my general feedback on FB, lol, but now I shall say something again! Since now I'm kind of comparing the themes.

Out of them all, I think City of Tranquility is probably my favorite (and you haven't even posted it here yet, lol), followed by City of Souls. I'm not the greatest critic at the moment, so I'll leave it at that, lol. Love them all, of course! xD

@Jake - Pretty good! But I must say, with a few parts of it, your voice sounds a bit . . . nasally. Other than that, it's good. You're certainly a better singer than I, lol. (Plus, I'm a Bass and I . . . can't really sing anything, to put it bluntly, lol. xD)

Hopy you guys enjoy it! Right now, I'm making a new theme called the 'City of Tranquility', a 'counterpart' of the 'Soul' theme. It will have Xerneas as the cover picture instead of Yveltal as well, so stay tuned! Also, sorry that I can't post youtube links here directly - they don't seem to be working :(
These are really good, I'm impressed! I'm assuming you made them all yourself from scratch which is very impressive considering they sound like they could easily be used in-game. The word that came to mind when I listened to them was "professional", I'm not sure there's much better thing to say about someone's work haha. My favourite by far was the City of Souls Track, I absolutely loved the feeling it gave and I'd love to hear it in-game whilst walking around. Only slight criticism I have is that the mostly sound quite... 'expected', if you get what I mean? They're not a huge break from any of the music featured in BW/BW2 and honestly it was quite predictable where the tunes were going to end up whilst listening to them. Although based on the fact that they're supposed to be backing music whilst you're doing 101 other things in-game, I'm not sure that's such a bad thing. I'd love to hear more if you get round to making any!

Also I'll add City of Tranquillity to the featured section based on the amount of positive comments it seems to be receiving!

Thank you so much! :D I DO think that you're right about the 'expected' part - melodies of some soundtracks I know are often similar because it sounds GOOD with that chord progression, and I'm trying to evade that. It's easier if it's a BATTLE theme (which is what I'm going to do now...well maybe), but unfortunately to create something comfortable, it's hard to wriggle away from the 'classic feel', if you know what I mean. It's harder and harder to find 'twists' in music now ;_; Anyway, I'm going keep trying!

If this is the wrong section I apologize, but I figured I'd implore the site.

Are there ANY people on here that produce beats or want to start producing beats or possibly knows someone that would want to do some work? I'm a rapper that was signed to a record label back in November and am looking to put out a series of mixtapes (both for free and for profit which would be split) that I need beats for, but want them to be unique sounding and not just the typical club banger or hard trap beats everyone is doing. I ask here because the mixtapes will be Pokemon themed. I will be doing 6 projects over the course of 2013.

The Blue Version Mixtape
The Gold Version Mixtape
The Emerald Version Mixtape
The Pearl Version Mixtape
The Black Version Mixtape


And I will culminate them all with "The X/Y Tape" which I will try and have released by January 1st, 2014. I will pick two out of the 5 gens up there to sell for a low price (5$ or something since I know I can profit easily from them at that price with the names I'll have for collabs) and then sell the X/Y Tape for 10$ as the big final project.

I'm not at the post count allowed to post links, so if you want to hear my music its at Youtube/sketchypandaent

Would love to have the help of someone who has similar interests on a project like this and help take their music career to the next level with me as I go.

Ozzy! Guys! New theme! x3

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ua7jcRVNY7U

When I tried coming up with a good style for this specific route, I started off by listening to the themes of BW2 and eventually stopped at a city theme (you probably know what it is). I then decided to mess around with its percussion and piano pattern and, later on, everything else, hence the name 'Theme Revamp' instead of a 'Remix' - Remixes keep the original melody, while 'Revamps' do not (at least, not in my opinion :P) It starts out similar, but starting from the middle section, it's quite different when compared to the original.

Since this is my most complicated piece of work yet, I hope you all would enjoy it!

Oh and Ozzy if you want you should feature this and not tranquility theme. I changed channels so it doesn't work anymore :P

I like the theme a lot Fenne-Kun! It's nice, and fun! The only advice I can give you is make the main melodies stand out a bit more, and add a little panning for the tracks to make some stereo effects, and it'd definitely sound cooler! Unless youtube is just being weird to me right now (sometimes it only plays things in mono).

The More You Know | Bandcamp.com (http://cheshireson.bandcamp.com/)


From the months of February through April, I was considerably bored and decided to work on a small musical project in my spare time. As a result, I produced the album The More You Know, a compilation of seventeen "mini-tracks" (as in each track being around 30-50 seconds long). The project was really fun to work with, especially when experimenting with an array of synthesizers and tweaking their sounds. In the end, I have created a nice, colorful palette of catchy electronic/trip-hop oriented tunes which, for the most part, are influenced by video game music of the 1990s.

Enjoy.

Update: I have made some final touches to a few of the tracks in order to give them a more cleaner, high-quality sound. I have also decided to make the album available to download for free if people aren't able to make the original payment of $2 CAD ($1.98 USD).

Controversial?

Ok, I've just started my new project seriously, so I'll be glad, if you could comment on it!
First of all, here's my recently created channel, so you can check on it anytime soon, as I'm still working on some pieces.
http://www.youtube.com/my_videos?o=U

Poke Composer, as I've named my project(yeah, original as hell) is my attempt, to rearrange cool pokemon themes with higher quality or even live instruments. Note, that this is going to be game-based, as I'm not anime fan.

As a young musician and multi-instrumentalist, who is trying to get on jazz university, I've decided to take on total arrangements of some great pokemon game pieces with a bit of jazz. Actually, it's hard to not make it jazzy, as many of those pieces are already in certain jazz-related styles(bossa novas, sambas, jazz waltz even blues and swing, all can be found there).

I also know, that some of my arrangements need a bit of rework, but hey, I'm still really working on it!

When it comes to my work methods, I mostly compose in GarageBand on iPhone 3GS, with connected my midi-capable piano to it. Sometimes you can also listen my live recorded bass guitar, at the moment, I don't have free access to acoustic upright bass :<
Note, that I'm trying to record every part of piece manually, on keyboard or with live instruments, sadly I'm not drums player, so usually I used some sample or write it on PC.

So my dream is to write music for video games. This piece that I started by playing the main lick on the guitar. It reminded me of Pyrite town from pokemon Colosseum and I went on with it.

This is the my first draft, not all parts are done and I just have 1 melody go through. It consists of right now a guitar trio but I want to had maybe a bass and another guitar.

All I really want is to grow from this so I would love some feedback about the song so far. How does it sounds? does it fit the mood of the game (just think of any sketchy town). what can I do to improve. I will continue to post other songs and this song as it grows. Thank you for listening.

So I've been tampering with FL Studio for somewhere
around a year and have worked with different styles and learned
new techniques, but I was never that great with most of them.

I have, however, been making piano remakes of random
favorite Pokemon songs that I wanted to share and get
opinions on. I think they're pretty neat, but I assure you
they're not difficult to make. They're incredibly easy to
make, actually, if you have a sense of pitch and rhythm.
I like making them and they sound cool, but I wanted to
get some outside opinions on them. They're nothing special;
they're exactly how they sound. They're Pokemon songs
done by a piano and sometimes have a beat to it.

Pokemon R/S/E - Littleroot Town

Pokemon R/S/E - Wild Pokemon Battle

https://soundcloud.com/cryptorithm/pokemon-r-s-e-wild-pokemon

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've been wanting to make a few tracks, but they
have a weird meter that I can't match with FL Studio's
standards without going through a tedious, unsure process.

Are they too boring? Do they need other aspects to them? That's what
I'm worried about. I want people to like them, but I feel in the back
of my head that there's nothing unique to them...like they could
use something that I don't get.

Darkroman

Since I posted my newest song already, but didn't comment on the others (damn it was late...), I'm gonna do that in this post!

Fenne-Kun: Your themes always turn out well, but the Evil Team Leader song you did with ElectricMudKip was easily some of your best stuff! I enjoyed it a lot! The Route 1 theme sounded more like a city theme to me in all honesty, but I still really enjoyed listening to it!

Arron13: Your Sketchy Town draft piece so far is good, sounds like you just need to add a good main melody to it. Also just because I feel the need to say this - the heavy reverb guitar reminds me a little of the Tristram theme from Diablo 1/2 http://www.pokecommunity.com/images/templates/smilies/cerulean/1.%20smile.gif.

DJKniteX: I was hesitant to listen to your rap song, since I'm not a huge fan of the genre and I don't think I can give good educated constructive criticism; however, I listened to it and I can say 2 things for certain. Your rap sounds a lot different than what I've heard, and it sounds like you don't mess around. The quality and mixing of the track was great! That's all I can give you lol.

Cryptonix: Nice Piano covers! Did you record these via MIDI keyboard, or did you put in all the notes with a mouse?

Also It'd be cool if someone could comment/criticize on my Goldenrod City theme. Thanks all http://www.pokecommunity.com/images/templates/smilies/cerulean/1.%20smile.gif

I've also got a new enhanced/remaster! I just recently got a world instruments library, and as a test run I decided to remaster the Bell/Tin Tower theme from Heartgold and Soulsilver.

Darkroman, did you try to download some high quality samples, soundfonts? It's generally ok, but those strings in Goldenrod city on 0:27 sound imho too thin. Maybe try to set it octave lower?

Belltower is just in place, I suppose :)

I will appreciate comments on my music on the previous site too :)

Uh... he was just doing his job as a moderator in telling you the correct place to post. I'd say it's pretty clear that posting a remix of a Trading Card game tune is not the sort of thing that fits in a section that's focused on discussing the X&Y games, after all.

Wow... WOW! Bravissimo Controversial!! That composition is... beautiful to say the least! I really like it.. and I'm imagining this song being played with a full symphony, as there's definitely potential for that. It sounds kind of like it could be a character's theme in a video game, too. Someone who's struggled hard to be where they're at but manages to rise to the top by just a hair.

Shay-Shay: I love your remix of such an awesome theme. It sounds really clean! I love it!

Shay-Shay: Your mixes are done well, but as I'm not completely into the music you're making, I don't have anything else to say.

PokemonComposer: It's awesome you're doing mixes with live recorded instruments. If you play them all, you have more talent than me. Also your Wii shop channel reminds me of the music from the original Sims. However, and I don't mean to sound harsh here, but they all sound really off-beat. The rhythm and timing is just not there! Also your Battle Frontier Orchestral remix... well, you can't just take a MIDI file and replace each instrument with strings, brass, woodwinds and orchestra percussion. Add some dynamics there, a creative bassline brass, and that muted trumpet doesn't go well with the song. Also, I'm not sure what's up with that hi-hat metronome. Did you use airfont 380 for your orchestral composition?
To answer your question about my Goldenrod City rearrangement. No I wasn't attempting it with high quality soundfonts. I used the same soundfont that's in the Pokemon DS games. I also tried your idea of adding in some lower octave strings before I put it up on youtube, but it just didn't have the feeling I was going for.

Genevieve: I couldn't load your myspace music since it was a restricted profile. Your movies were cute and cheesy XD. Not sure what to say about your medleys.

As for me.. well, I did a Pokemon DS soundfont rearrangement of the FFX Normal Battle theme. Now I've attempted an FFX remaster (dear god help me) of the Normal Battle theme. It's not perfect, but I tried my best (as I am now) at it. I'm always open to criticism!

Some 8-bit tunes I like, and some techno and trance. Some examples of the type of techno I like are from Armin Van Buuren, (older) Basshunter, and the song "Sea Tides" from Andy Bluesman. I'm not into dubstep at all unfortunately. I'm a bit of a dubstep hater :P ...actually just a strong disliker lol. Anyway, I like metal, some orchestra pieces, classic rock, and some modern rock.

Also your Wii shop channel reminds me of the music from the original Sims. However, and I don't mean to sound harsh here, but they all sound really off-beat. The rhythm and timing is just not there!

I'm absolutely aware of it. It was recorded in a very short time. I think the problem is, I've not learned its harmony and melody, so I wasn't capable of playing it fluently and even with some better moments, it's sounds extremely "heavy" compared to the original version. I fully agree on that point. I'm looking forward to getting some cool Sound Interface. My old 90' creative card just cannot process in real-time when it comes to recording and audio monitoring latency on my headphones is killing me off, so it's not even possible to synchronize each track "just-in-time". Even my iPhone 3GS with iRig midi and garageband is doing much better job. Latency is minimal, but I have to find some way to get transfer drums samples to iPhone, because that's the only flaw in my one-man-band "career".


Also your Battle Frontier Orchestral remix... well, you can't just take a MIDI file and replace each instrument with strings, brass, woodwinds and orchestra percussion. Add some dynamics there, a creative bassline brass, and that muted trumpet doesn't go well with the song. Also, I'm not sure what's up with that hi-hat metronome. Did you use airfont 380 for your orchestral composition?

It's nice you pointed it out. I'm totally fresh, when it comes to Midi editing. I'm not really aware of "airfront" you've mentioned. Can you explain it to me?

Airfont is a soundfont. A soundfont is basically a file (.DLS or .SF2 are the most used) that assigns the different MIDI instrument patches some samples (most of the time they're synthesized samples). What do you use for a MIDI editor and do you use its default sound? And... a creative card from the 90s? Are you currently rocking an Audigy, Live, or.. an AWE based model? Try buying a decent soundcard with good native support for ASIO. I'm currently using an Asus Xonar DX which has native support for ASIO, but I don't really use that feature since all my MIDI notes are hand-clicked in a MIDI editor rather than recorded from an external MIDI device.

I used MusicBox soundfont. I've got Soudblaster Live Card. It's not even official supported in Windows 7. I had to download modified drives and still it's not playing even loud enough to cover my headphones needs(bug in drivers). When it's possible I'm using ASIO4ALL and it's working generally ok, still I have to use low-samples settings when it comes to VST real-time recording.

I'm also using Mixcraft as a Midi Editor and Midi Recorder, because it's software the most similiar to GarageBand, which I'm sometimes using on iOS.

Wow! A live! :) I remember loving its built-in MIDI synth back in the day. Honestly though, get a modern sound card :P. A good compromise between games, sound quality, and price is the ASUS Xonar DX. Seriously, if you can afford $70-$80, then get it. It has native ASIO support, 7.1 channels through 4 analog plugs, or a single optical cable, 116db SNR (signal-to-noise ratio in case you don't know which I'm sure you do lol). It's pretty clean sounding, a hell of a lot more than my audigy 2 that I upgraded from. I'd imagine it'd be a bigger difference from a SB Live.

Now if you're worried about MIDI soundfont configuration, get 'BASSMIDI driver'. It's a MIDI soundfont configuration utility for all versions of windows that overrides the default barf inducing windows soundfont. It's what I use to assign my Pokemon soundfont. And it does support all the MIDI Controller codes. It only loads .SF2 files though.

Yeah, I'm sure that even my built-in motherboard sound interface could cover better my needs(yet it's broken, that's why I had to put SB Live in PCI slot). Well, I have to think it over. I think I can afford it and in my local store I found priced as above($80). I'm really tired of fighting with my card to achieve anything. And yes, I know about SNR of course :P
I'm even going to study Electronics with expertise on Acoustic Engineering, so sound interface's specifications are only tip of the iceberg, compared to what I'm going to learn :D


Edit. I've rented M Audio Delta 1010 from my colleague. That's an upgrade!

I refrained from posting it because I hated this piece at first, but now it's grown on me. Feel free to criticise whatever. :P

Here is a collaboration I did with a rapper named JP a while back. Doesn't fit with any of my projects I'm currently working on, so just decided to put it out there :)

I like all the stuffs that's been posted so far. PokeComposer, that cover was good and it seems like you're getting a handle on timing :)

So I have an oldie but a goodie. I did yet another remaster of the HGSS Champion Battle theme. Since the theme was my first attempt at VST remastering like... 3 years ago or so.. I thought I'd do another one to see how far I've come.

Hi guys I am a rapper from the Bronx, NY. Below is my latest song which is actually a collaboration with another producer. It is a remix of Linkin Park and Steve Aoki's "A Light That Never Comes." It is in a remix contest so if you guys listen and are feeling charitable, don't hesitate to vote =].
