A Zelda 2 Medley

This medley is a joint effort by myself and jharris01 of the QuestStudios.com forums. It covers a few melodies from the game. The song starts with music that plays at the end of the game, transitions to the palace theme and finishes with the overworld theme.

Enjoy!

This song was recorded using a Roland XV-5080.

really well done

Excellent remix

I'm quite impressed by this work! I had to comment on it!

I've commented on your stuff before, but this work definitely shines for several reasons:

- The medley created was of an excellent quality, and isn't your "garden variety" remix of video game music. The blending of the different themes is very close together and tight, that it sounds like its own work. In other words, it's not like some remixes which basically sound like someone pressed play in iTunes and enabled crossfading.

- The synthesizer that you used for this is, in a word, outstanding. The samples used for these songs not only keep true to the original song from the game itself, but they give it a body that give it realism that you normally don't get from a video game remix. In other words, this arrangement could easily be played by an orchestra, and the synthesizer certainly comes damn close to sounding like it was actually played by one

- The joint work you two put into this really makes the work shine. It's obvious the composer is quite skilled at what he does, and the sampler/synthesizer is the same. Specializations coming together always makes a work greater than the sum of its parts.

I'd like to hear more stuff like this in the future! It's obvious that you have not-cheap equipment at your disposal to help you along (not to say that it doesn't require skill and talent to man it...), and I'd like to see more of the potential unraveled over time!

Overall score - 9/10
