Finally submitted! \o/

As of now, there are 2 votes. And judging from the very first review of this song, I'm pretty sure someone zero bombed this. -_- I know, it happens to anyone, even to a newcomer. SO...

READ: If you're gonna rate this and any future songs a score of 0, please have the decency to at least write a review and give a good reason for doing so. Constructive criticism is most welcome of course. That's all. XD


Hello to the NG community!

Cave Story... one of the few games that I enjoyed during my summer vacation last year. The game had such awesome music that I decided to remix one of the songs in it.

This is actually just a simple MIDI remix of Mimiga Town. I made this remix last year and made my friend (Who is btw somewhere here in NG and has submitted a good number of metal tracks, which he refers to as "his style." I wonder who that is. -rtnarioehemehem- XD) listen to it. He spotted a number of mistakes in my remix and so I fixed those mistakes.

After that, I converted this MIDI to WAV... and then to MP3. The conversion I did wasn't exactly your standard way of converting MIDI with soundfont or by recording. It's actually- Oh wait, it's a secret. XD

Enjoy my first release here in NG! =)


Somehow uplifting and trembling my heart.

The melody and chord follow just in the right order that it tells the story very clearly about a departure to greater adventure and reflect back about where you come from. The instruments are not that great but the melody is excellent.

As I've always said, I've always liked this song and it's one of my favorites in the game. XD I understand what you mean by the instruments not being great. It's MIDI after all. Don't get me wrong, I do love MIDI, but with so much new technology available for making music, MIDI sequences seem to be a little out of date.

I'm currently using FL Studio 9 which was just released a few days ago. XD

Thanks for the review!

really great!

well, i dont know, but for any reason i really like this song you made here.
maybe it because you have chosen one of my farorite songs in the whole game.
I like the sounds which ae playing in the background, and the main song plays in the foreground.

I know that its the same as in many other songs, but your choice of the sounds and strings is that what i rly like here, because of any reason, i like them a lot!


carlohmf responds:

Thanks, the song is one my favorites in the game too. =D

Again with this "rtnario rtnario" thing!?


*ahem* xD

Seriously speaking, there are still a number of errors in melody when it comes to accuracy in the remix. Bass from 00:40 - 00:41. Lead, 00:45 - 00:46. 2nd Voice, 00:48 - 00:49, 00:52 - 00:53, 00:59 - 1:00, 1:01 - 1:02 & 1:04 - 1:05. You can ask me here (or via other ways) about the mistakes, since I also remixed the same track and made a MIDI file of all base melodies, which is what I used to compare to this one. Of course, there's also what a remix means, which is your take and/or twist on the original piece, so what I pointed out can either be right or wrong. But you already know it's for the better. xD

The track itself is exactly how you said it: it's a simple remix of Mimiga Town. Faithful to the original with some instrument changes here and there to make it sound even better. It's great as a cover, but not really as a remix since it could've used some variation IMO =)

Awesome first submission. Keep it up, (and I'll be listening to "THANK YOU.mid" until then xD)

5/5, 9/10.


carlohmf responds:

Ah, you didn't need to be that specific about the errors, but it's for the better, yes. Tack. XD

And you're right about the "remix" part. It's more of a MIDI version than a remix actually, but I still like it anyway. Like you said, it can use some of my own variations. =)

Hehehe, listen to "THANK YOU.mid" while you still can. Because the final version is gonna be totally different... -Elite Pose- \m/ ...kidding, the final version is pretty much the same as THANK YOU, except- *beep sound* ...tuuuuuuuuut. XD
