Remastering!

Things keep moving along very well these days!  Coming up on the deadline for Maverick Rising, Bad Ass, Seiken Densetsu 3, and a whole bunch others.  NiGHTS final deadline December 1st, so I’m going to be keeping very close tabs on the musicians involved.

However, this post has some more awesomeness.  I recently started a heavy-duty pursuit to improve my mastering.  As a result, I have gone back and remastered quite a few tracks (both released and unreleased).  I will post links to the ones that have been released, so feel free to download these versions.  I feel that, while the versions of these songs originally released on other sites such as OCR and thasauce are still good and indicative of where I was musically at the time, these are considerable improvements.  Enjoy!

 
 
 
 
 

I will probably post more as applicable.  I have yet to make enough improvement on the acoustic remixes to warrant any kind of remastered uploading.

Track on newly-released OCR project, OHC win, life in general

Time always seems to slip away whenever I actually feel the urge to post.  I’m working a lot these days, both work-work and other-work.  It’s just hard to keep all my places up-to-date.  Taking care of OverClocked After Dark alone could be a full-time job!  Still, wouldn’t trade it for anything.

OCR recently released the first album, in a set of five, for Final Fantasy V.  The project is called The Fabled Warriors, and while the first album only has nine songs, they’re all from heavy hitters in the OCR world.  There’s a collab on the project from Avaris and myself.  Avaris helped fine-tune the production and did some tweaking on the backing instruments, while I did the majority of arrangement and performance.  It’s a very warm, acoustic song with orchestral backing.  Check out the track, called “A Healer’s Touch”, as well as the rest of the project here:

Also, for OHC099, i couldn’t help myself but to enter.  I mean, Level 99 has to participate in Compo 99, otherwise the balance of life as we know it is in jeopardy!  So I entered and, much to my surprise, I won! I never think my OHC entries are good enough, mostly because there’s never enough time for all the ideas I have to do, and I always get caught up in finding just the right synth/guitar sound/drum set.  Anyways, here’s the compo, and at the top of the list is my winning entry called “Nothing is out of reach”

NiGHT project is coming along well, as of this afternoon. Things were shaky the last few weeks, but now at least things seem to be stabilizing and we’re full speed ahead towards the final deadline! There’s so much art that we may need to figure out a different way to pack it in the physical distros besides an insert…

I recently finished my tracks for the Zelda: Links Awakening and Unsung Heroes projects.  I’ve really gotta focus on finishing my Mega Man X, Seiken Densetsu 3, and Bad Ass Boss Themes projects.  Finding time to do all that, and do work-work, AND sleep is a tough situation, but it’s something that I find myself thriving off of.

I should keep this short before the GF yells at me to go to bed again :P

My Lady: She keeps me in line. <3
