Very well done. The best part of the song by far is 2:10. I don't want to sound picky here, but I feel like it is missing some kick. There isn't much excitement in this track, however it still sounds great regardless. :)

Excellent! The original tune is still audible and the extra sounds only add to the impressiveness that you performed on this remix!

Only problem? Just.... slightly off. Not too bad, but it's hard to point out.

Above that, I'm amazed at this work of art. All of your songs are amazing, seriously.

Thanks alot! This means alot to me. :D

thumbs up

good job, I can tell you put time and effort in this song. overall it came out good. lol it reminds me of super street fighter 2, the ryu fighting stage. sorry I would add more to that but I suck at constructive criticism.

MegaMettaurX responds:

I'm curious why you think this sounds like "Go Flying Through the Air" or Ryu's theme. They don't sound the same, at all. Lol. Look up "United Forces, Mega Man ZXA" and hear the original version of this song.

Sounds ok to me.

For the bassline, try using a sequence of the tones of the major scale:
1st, 1st (down octave), 2nd, 3rd
in no particular order, of course.

I think that would suit this piece well.

Endings are always tough. Remember, any hard hit produces ripples. I don't like the snare roll at the end, and the snare in general sounds a bit mismatched to this piece. Hit the crash cymbal on the final beat. Leave a shimmer of some sort, like high pitched synth, or chimes, or noise.

In general, it just feels a bit empty. You need to fill out the midtones with an additional instrument and juice up the drumline a bit. Compressors are your best friend. Use them liberally to increase to forwardness of the sound.

MegaMettaurX responds:

Thanks for the insight. So, for the compressor, I'm only using them on percussion, I haven't tried using anything on instruments, but so far the instruments all have some kind of filter on them. I may try something with the compression.
