Again, more right than wrong.
You did a wonderful job with the song, but there in still lies defining the beats a bit more crisply, which would grant you a much better score, IMO. This is your better version of the two, hands down. Remember, the sounds have to blend together to work together. As for what I would like to see... Perhaps a bit more imagination near the ending of the main loop. Otherwise, great work.
Possibly better than the actual game music?
I agree with the guy below, that this is a perfect rendition of the same music used in the game. I listened to your second version of the same, and this one appeals to me more.
You know what they say; if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Or at least, in your case, leave both up since tastes vary.
A perfect rendition...
...of a classic song. Certainly, I don't think you should tweak it at all. I don't believe it's too loud. I think this song was designed to be a loud song. I always find myself turning the sound up when I get into a boss battle. This track makes the battles seem more heated as it has quite an aggressive feel to it, and I love how you used the trumpets. :D Great job!!
Ya, I fiddled with the trumpets for a while to make 'em sound just right.
Lol, I didn't know other people turned up the volume on boss fights, I always do. More epic that way. : )
This arrangment perfectly captures the action and intenseness of the origial. In my opinion, this is just as good as the song in the game.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
