This is a remix of one of Rucklos songs: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/229474

There's a lot of sub bass in this mix so if your speakers/ headphones suck, go upgrade them right now. I didn't spend a lot of time on this one, but that's primarily because I can't use this track outside of newgrounds (as in I can't use this to make monez.) I had a lot of fun working on this though so who really cares if I can't use it to make myself rich. The pleasure I gained from this was worth the time spent. I hope you enjoy it too. Don't forget to vote 0 and check out the original while your at it.

OK lets go

So man, long time no see uh? Old song this is but I like it so lets do deh reviews... I like the Piano SO much in the beginning its very atmospheric and creepy (playing L4D2 now) and also the odd melody comes in place once the drums kick in, cool effect on that. The Bass sounds aight but could use some more low end and modulation besides a bandpass going up and down and this glitch effect you put on it. BUT the choirs are epic as the last ones I heard from you, mucht better than the stuff I got here. (lol the "UH" vox just came in)

The way the bass blends with the piano at 2:56 is nicley done and also the short cutoff is a great variation, didnt expect that, Again epic choir sounding, we should do something together dude, I like them so much :3

The only flaws I could find here are the weak snare, its too tinny and distorted for my taste. The kick is finally here after one billion tracks where I could hardly hear your kicks. The mastering sounds and looks alright so far but the whole track could use some more sub I think and the bass again also would sound alot better with more variation and constant melodies besides the filters you used.

8/10

oh...

...i never go around to review this it seem!

overall i like what you did with the tune, the panned reece sounds gritty and sweet. it has a good beat going on, though there's a SERIOUS lack of sub. another con would be the intro, it's really drowning with reverb.
productionvice it's ok though, this is exactly how remixes should be - save some of the original elements, and bring alot of new ones innit. i just don't feel the red thread somehow, there are things going on to give anticipation of what's to come throughout the song, i just don't buy them. perhaps the beat needs more versatility. all the way through the tune.
after the breakdown there's a sine-like synth that may have been meant to be a sub? it's at least one octave too high for that, if that's the intention.

the breakdown was really cool, btw.

so overall, a cool remix right here!

Are you sure you can't hear that sub I put through out most of the track? More presence maybe?

Man

When ever i hear your work im always shocked. Your know how is incredible, in fact i think (and i could be completely wrong) out of attempt to meet equal stature to some other names on new grounds you completely excelled and passed them up. When i hear your work it seems like no other music on this site compares. Someday you will be making money doing this but don't lose sight of why you started.


Quarl responds:

haha. You kidding? All I think about is the money. That's the only reason why I started. In fact, as soon as I get rich, the first thing I'm buying is your house so I can turn it into a heli-pad.

All joking aside thanks. I still have quite a bit to go before I'd be considered pro by most, but as far as I'm concerned professionalism isn't real. Perfection is subjective and the only reason why anything has any meaning at all is because the society we live in dictates it. Thanks for the kind words ^_^

Better than the original

The main beat can use a little more aggression and more speed however.


Quarl responds:

There's no such thing as a remix that's better than the original. Remixes/covers are reinterpretations of someone else's work and can't exist with out the prior. Regardless of how good a remix/cover is, the original is always responsible for creating the response and there for is always more important. I understand where your coming from though and thanks for the kind words/ critique :)
