Album N3 : Light & Darkness

Hi ! Since really few people entered for the Light & Darkness Album i gave it up.
But i'd like to try an other one like a ZELDA ALBUM !?

So i put a survey on the gametabs FB page to know if you wanna do a zelda album, keep on with this one, or just, stop with albums.
You can find the survey here : http://www.pixule.com/250736162298_do-you-want-3rd-gametabs-album.html

So what would be the rules :

- Whatever your level (beginner, average, pro...), the instrument you play (guitar; bass, piano, violin) YOU CAN ENTER !
- The song can can be a live recording, studio recording, remix made with a software...
- It can be a old song you did years ago
- 3 song MAXIMUM per person
- Can be from ANY Zelda game
- Send me songs before the deadline (haven't set it for now)











NES Album
Thanks to all of you guys for your songs ! =) The album will be shorter but it will be great :D
As soon as i have the final "Cover Art" and the lasts songs i'll make the album and put it online =)

Light & Darkness : The Theme
So here is the new theme for the 3rd album : Light & Darkness

- Why ? Because it's really free, you can pick songs from almost any games in the world !

- What kind of songs can i pick ? Any good guy theme is "light" as some relaxing places or ANY songs with a good or positive feeling in the game ! For "darkness" use bad guys themes, battles songs, evil places etc... Try to make them sound even more relaxing/happy/holy or unholy/evil/badass as the originals ^^

Light & Darkness : The Rules
NO DEADLINE !
It will be a double CD and it will be finished as soon as we will have any songs to have AT LEAST 45 minutes on each CD (1 light and 1 darkness). Of course if you got some work in progress we wil let you finish them.

You can enter whatever your level, whatever your music style, whatever you play (bass, guitar, piano, ocarina...) ! It's just for fun and sharing our common passion =)

It MUST be from a video game !!! (no anime, no TV shows...)

You can enter "old recordings" too, if you got a badass arrangement of "Dancing Mad" well just tell me :D

What if you don't like the theme ?
If some of you don't like the theme, well i still can change it, the purpose was the let you some choice of game and have a concept, the last albums was a ame and then a platform, now it's a concept (and yhe ai like concept albums).

Exemples !
Here are some songs you can use !
- Light :
Sonf of Storm
Dire Dire Docks
Stickerbrush Symphony
Terra's Theme
Dream of the Shore Near Another World

- Darkness :
Knight of Fire
Dark Messenger
Ganondorf Battle
Dark World
Otherworld

Any questions ?

Go take your guitars guys :D

Since two month, I planned to make Dark World theme from A Link To The Past. Very classic theme but i think it's gonna be okay for the "Darkness" style ^^. Otherwise, for the "light" style, i've make a cover of Breezy few weeks ago : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qozjyCJo1II or my "old" cover of Dire Dire Docks : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSuG2Ov9InE&list=PLm2ECdmyAhpFLoeRah3JIV...

Deiselc Wow a cover with a singer would be really cool ! Eyes on me is such a smooth song, it will fit the Light theme pretty well :)
Link Really happy to see you back here :) If you're in, it's gonna be great ! The FF7 album was a succes with more than 1000 downloads ! If you wish i can send you the trailer and the album's link to let you put ito n your channel (as you were a part of it).

Guys, how do you make your videos ? ~__~
I used to make my old videos (recorded with bad webcam) with the old windows movie maker, which was easy to use.
Now i have a HD camera but looks like the windows movie maker 2.6 is less complete and you can't anymore make the video start at, for exmeple, 32,08 seconds to synchronize the video with the audio file...

So, help please? ^^

I use Vegas Pro 12 suite but you could easily do it on the cheaper version Movie Studio hd. Or Adobe premier elements, pinnacle studio, camtasia studio. If you have a serious budget then Avid studio. But I cant think of any decent free movie editors. If you had a mac I would say use imovie

We make everything good and then 're going to be lazy? ;P Even if we don't hear them, those cut-off frequencies are still used for the calculation.

When I decided to finally start making videos, I remembered the note in the description of Link's covers
and started with the [FREE] program she mentioned there: Videopad from NCH

It's quite easy to use and fast to learn, supports many file-formats and is also able to use Chroma-Key (but that will be a slow loading pain^^).
To Cut a simple video out of multiple clips together and combine + synchronize it with your audio file, it's suitable :)

[Since Kokuten I'm Using Adobe Premiere, but that is not free... x.x But it's better to use with many clips...it's a matter of comfort^^]

Still want to have a REAL collab (at least 3 people) on this one, so let make it happens, ok? =)

Damn yeah! ...we still didn't make any, so it's really time!

Ok i'll try this program tomorrow, thanks :)

I think we will find more "light" songs than darkness, so, let's make a DARKNESS COLLAB !

Any ideas ?

- Dancing Mad
- Dark Messenger
- Maybe I'm a Lion
Any other ideas? ^^

Hmm will try and make some submissions for this, haven't started anything yet but some ones I want to attempt so just calling dibs for now. If anyone has one they really wanted to do let me know t, I'm not likely going to do all of these. lol

@Hashel Dark Messenger sounds like a sweet one to try for.

Good:
Dragon Ball Z - Budokai 3 Opening
Final Fantasy 7 Crisis Core - Why
Metal Gear Solid - Medley
Monster Hunter - Pokke Village
Zone Of Enders - Jehuty will self-destruct (maybe)

Evil:
Final Fantasy X - Other World
Warcraft III - Power of the Horde (Not 100% if good or evil)
Star Ocean 3 - The Divine Spirit of Language
Star Craft 2 - Terran Theme (evil in my book, every other race is true to it's nature!)
Final Fantasy IV or V - Golbez, Clad in Darkness/Evil Lord Ex. Death

Can anybody post a song for the dark AND the light side or have to choose one? I've got so many ideas these days :)

Having CD 1 (Light) & CD 2 (Dark) sounds cool, espeically if we can come up with some cool graphic for the album.
Have one blacked out the other white washed sorta thing.

Well when i say "no limits" i mean, someone can enter 1, 2, 3... songs.
But it will be a double CD, so MAXIMUM 2x 80 minutes.
So maximum 160minutes in total, which is already a lot ^^

Even if i think the NES album is really good, it's not a kind of "fail".

I think the 3rd one is no longer a good idea so i let this unfinished.
