[COLLAB] The Sonic Stadium Music Album 2013 & Knuckles

Recommended Posts

More or less; That's basically all that's final in that thing! I really should have called it a proof-of-concept/demo or something instead - There's gonna be a lot that's smoothened out and improved soon, such as a real guitarist *coughJoshuaTaipalecough*.

 

...Now, if I could only grab a vocalist for the darn thing...

 

If you need a male vocalist, I can give it a try.

 

EDIT: CoN and I discussed this over chat and we both agreed that I didn't really have the kind of voice that could be used in the track. Best of luck with the rest of your work!

Damn, Meremist, you beat me to it! There's mixed opinions of whether I can sing or not anyway. A guy who can sing but doesn't as a hobby tells me I can't. 2 girls who are hobbyist singers tell me I can. So, yeah, I'm not too sure...

Oh, might as well plan something like that up!

 

In terms of priority:

1) This original song thing I've been working on (currently involving: Joshua Taipale and Speedway)

 

2) No Way? No Way!

 

3) Green Hill (collaboration with Joshua Taipale)

 

4) Possibly a medley of Chemical Plant, Metal Sonic and a Rayman Origins track, among others

 

5) Possibly a remix of Oil Desert... Assuming I manage to finish it.

 

I really, really doubt I could finish even 3 for this, though.. Let's see how it goes.

Here's a really loose visual representation of what you're trying to go for. Coupling this EQ change with a change in the actual levels of the individual instruments should provide the improvements you're looking for.

OOOOH Okay, I'll give it a go! I still have a lot to learn >w<;

First of all, I'm very sorry that I'm not too active in the forums. I just kinda don't like talk in forums much, so that's why my post is kinda long.

 

Anyway I'm too lazy to continue my medley. I will STILL continue it, though. But it will be finished later.

 

Maybe a reminder? So far my tracks for TSSMA13 are:

 

=============

 

Windy Valley (mykono5 Remix)

https://soundcloud.com/mykono5/windy-valley-mykono5-remix

 

Terminal Velocity (mykono5 Remix)

https://soundcloud.com/mykono5/sonic-colors-terminal-velocity

 

Sonic The Hedgehog Rock Medley (Work In Progress)

https://app.box.com/s/9k925wvh80opplnjdgxa

 

=============

 

The medley has only reached Spring Yard zone theme. Still fixing things out. Personally, I think the lamest part is the Marble zone. Also, because the limit is below 10 minutes, some tracks will not be looped.

 

Well... someone said five tracks are the limit for each artist, right? I've started to remix Rooftop Run Daytime from Sonic Unleashed right after I've done the Windy Valley remix. Unless someone already took it, I'll either find another track to be remixed or continue my Mega Man remix album. I actually wanted to do original, but Faseeh said it has to be "Sonic-y" and the only song I really really like from Sonic series is the Sonic Heroes' theme sung by Crush 40 (Or whatever the name, sorry I forgot about it.)

 

Thank you and have a nice day! (Or night)

 

---

p.s. Also just for your information, I actually in need of a vocalist for that Mega Man remix album I'm working on. But it's not really important. I just want someone who doesn't have the same voice as me (my voice is like a dying bird) singing for my "Snake Eyes" remix from Mega Man ZX. I've sung it myself and made the lyrics. The lyrics might be kinda cheesy XD

Here's the song I meant, in case if you'd like to listen to it: https://app.box.com/s/uy1elhpok7q887soi9s7

Also for anyone needing it, I can provide drum/guitar/bass/keyboard/some vocal tracks if needed for your mix. :) Just thought I might throw that out there. hehe

 

I could type up a long message on EQ'ing tracks but I'll try to keep it short since some of y'all have already gave advise. Pretty much how I eq my tracks to keep bass frequencies from running crazy is to try give each instrument its own frequency range, or to keep it simple, limit/High pass the instruments in question. Like for say My guitar tracks I High pass "cut off" bass frequencies below 180hz. My acoustic I usually cut below 160hz but it depends on the song. Any synths that have low end I like to usually cut at 200hz but usually use automation to vary that at some points during songs. The point is to not have a lot of instruments using the same frequency range, especially the lower frequencies cause it adds a lot of boomyness/mud real quick. High-pass filters should be used/adjusted on almost everything except-"most of the time" kick drum, bass guitars, and piano.<-depends on the song and what your going for, and what else is going on in the song as i've used a High pass on the latter before.

Oo and I just realized, that what headphones/monitors your mixing with have a big effect too. Flat response is what you want. If you don't have any good monitors/headphones, listen to your song on every source you can find,* car, home stereo, cheap boombox, surround sound, etc*   I'm used to having good monitors/headphones to mix on so I don't think about it too much anymore. :P I'll stop now.

Alright, so since everyone seems to be doing this now, I'm going to update my list of tracks submitted and called so far for the collab.

 

1. No Copyright Law in the Universe... for Planet Wisp, which is already submitted and on Soundcloud

 

2. Metalknux... for Reactive Factory (feat. HarmoniusG) [i swear this is almost done]

 

3. Possible Remix of "Can You Feel the Sunshine" with Discrybe... for Resort Island.

 

I will be dropping all of my other claims for now, but I have a fairly large selection of tracks to choose from for the last two slots, so I might just put the selection of the last two to a fan vote! Should I include my His World Electro Dubstep Remix? my Ungravitify Your Heart Dual Remix? One of my Sonic 3 Remixes? An original track? I'll put it to a vote later.

I'm looking to start a new feature on the SEGASonic:Radio (SS:R) Facebook Page by the start of September where I can showcase about 30-45 seconds of someones either completed or Work-In-Progress submission for the TSSMA13 & Knuckles Album.

 

I'd like to call it the "TSSMA BACKSTAGE" - where I can feature a clip of the song as mentioned, a bit about the artist - and use this as a once-a-week (or so) way to build anticipation and excitement for the release of this album.

 

Thoughts?

As for me, all I'd like to confirm is that the songs I've claimed and all are:

 

Angel Island (3&K)

Egg Golem (Might get a real guitarist)

Aquarium Park

Aqua Lake (Collab with Dizcrybe)

 

For my last track, I'm still thinking. I might end up contributing an original, but prolly not. I don't want to multi-task my remixes from mods or anything, so these are the stuff that I've been doing that are meant for SSMA from the start.

 

Since this is like August, I've quite some time.

 

Anyways, EAR. Any publicity this album can get is good!

No Copyright Law in the Universe - Stop SOPA 2013 VIP Mix... for Planet Wisp

Just a fun little VIP mix of a song I already submitted to the album. I was inspired to do this in protest of SOPA 2013 (like using Sonic's quip speaking against copyright laws as a war cry for striking down SOPA. Cheezy, yes, but that's why I did it! ^^)

 

Sign the petition to stop SOPA 2013 while you're at it here: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/stop-sopa-2013/LMzMVrQF

 

By the way, since this was just a fun little thing I did last minute, the track will only be up for a limited time on Soundcloud.

Has anyone claimed His World by Zebrahead yet? If not, I'm going to.

 

I'm also going to claim I Am.. the Story is Over from Shadow the Hedgehog (AKA the piano intro to Never Turn Back by Crush 40) since I'm going to assume that no one else has.

 

Also, did I just put down 3 posts in a row? I'm really sorry...

So, a lot has developed since I last checked here, and I've given more thought to my setlist, and decided to give it a complete overhaul. So, here it is:

 

  1. Live & Learn (w/ Joshua Taipale and hopefully Marvin Valentin) - I will be providing the vocals for this one. Should be fun.
  2. Pirate Storm - This one is not only gonna be transposed, but will include a reference to a non-SEGA franchise that recently became relevant to another Sonic canon.
  3. Radical Highway - I'd like to give this more of a D&B feel to this one, and I'm curious to see what would come out of that.
  4. Hydro City - And yes, I want it separated like that on the album. IT'S HYDRO CITY, GODDAMNIT! This one will be taking a jazzy approach, with sax, and clarinet, and PERHAPS brush drums.

 

I am also willing to collab with anyone who needs a vocalist, so if I'm needed, just hit me up on here, or on Skype as megamaster7941, and I'll see what we can do.

 

I probably won't finish all of these songs, but anything that is not finished in time, will be put on the 2014 album, if there is one to begin with. I may also try to do an original, because why not?

I have been really busy and haven't really worked on any remix stuff.  I'm un-calling Arid Sands Day, if anyone wants to do that.

 

I'm gonna wait until I finish some of my personal projects before I put dibs on another song.

YES. OH GOD YES! I'm totally down for doing Arid Sands, as long as no one else needs a vocalist.

If Ungravitify from Sonic Riders Zero Gravity is available I'd like to snatch the spot.

I have dropped my claim to all forms of Un-gravitify, so go ahead and make a remix of that one! I will be looking forward to it!

 

In addition, I have submitted my His World remix and I Am/The Story is Over (Intro to Never Turn Back) remix to Vizard.

I hope nobody has taken this one yet...

 

Jazz Night at the Labyrinth...for Labyrinth Zone (Master System)

https://app.box.com/s/jgang05kshxxtu4w6t3c

 

This one has been sitting in my WIP folder for far too long, so I decided to finish it and submit it for the album.

 

Not taken yet, and I am simply LOVING the sound of this! I especially enjoy the part at 0:50 when it breaks into a different beat pattern, and I love jazz as a whole, and the general instrumentation and feel of this definitely doesn't disappoint. This is gonna be stuck in my head all day... Great job, wOrm!

 

Also, are you gonna submit your Blue Spheres remix to this thing too?
