You know, that animation is responsible for me giving my first 5. Animation and style were just fantastic and flowed really well to the audio, and the story progression of the whole thing also completely threw me off-guard. I can somehow even find a morale from this in regards to being careful with what we pursue, and it's a great way to portray that in a visual form. Nice work :D
Personally I don't get the appeal behind this - a weird photo taken to huge flashing lights. Seemed more like a tech demo if anything. But I do definitely appreciate the time taken to the audio synchronisation and the detail taken to the effect work, so it's still alright.
Oh btw... are you the same Gerkinman that used to post at OverLooked ReMiX? Your name sounds familiar... :P
ha ha, yeah, I am MC Gerkin. I miss making music... :(
I'm gonna have to be blunt with this one. I gave this a '0' due to terrible animation (looked more like it was done frame-for-frame in MSPaint), no audio and no interesting plot whatsoever. Credit for calling it one of your more "interesting animations", but you really need to refine your skills considerably if you want to make sure your flashes are saved on Newgrounds. Sorry :(
dude it is ms paint and WMM
Do the memory of REUBEN KEE a favor and take this song down. This is on OC Remix as one of the greatest FF7 arrangements of ALL TIME, and you decide to hinder his memory by plagiarising his work. I hope you pull this down, sit in the dark and think about what you've just done.
Not so much raw DnB but more like hints of DnB fused with Ska... which isn't a bad thing at all x)
For a first attempt at this sort of thing, it actually isn't bad - appropriate instrumentation, great flow, and managed to show its greatest energy when the melody ends up as the primary focus. Those are pretty good arrangement ideas for sure.
Can't say I was particularly keen about some of your low-key transitions here, or rather that outside of the progression it felt more like a 2-loop variation of the theme given the DnB treatment. You do however tend to acknowledge your mastering weakness a bit here - for the most part it actually sounds fine, though one tip for the future is that your individual parts need to be a lot less muddy. In fact, everything except the kick would benefit with high-passes around their general frequency (e.g. snare's case, around 200-300hz, hihats around 5k depending on pitch); not only would they have more of a punch, but it also gives the other instruments around that range some time to come out themselves.
Hopefully this comes out okay - nice work either way :)
Thanks for the indepth review
Ive always loved dnb and wanted to make something like it. If i do make more ill definitly take the advice you have given.
Thanks again :)
Gotta have to say, really love the arrangement and ideas here - didn't think I'd hear Green Hill interpreted like this. The piano writing and saxophone solo work is very good, and left a lot of room for being wowed here - very solid stuff.
However, the GM soundbank / muddy mixing really hurts the production a lot, especially considering what's available to write with today. It's generally more exposed on the drums more than the other instruments, and so would benefit from looking around for any free VSTs that may give this a lift. It's a shame, because otherwise the composition is just really, really nice.
