0ZeroDL Thank YOU man!

andersongs87, I completely agree with 0ZeroDL, the using of pan for the rythm guitar is extremely effective. If you don't want to perform again, a simple solution is to duplicate you track, and move the new one from a little time (almost impossible to hear), and put you left pan and right pan on those tracks, it works pretty well and is easy to make it youalrerady have your track!

Thank you for the advices.
Changes :
Clean bass Tone with more medium.
Duplicate guitar rhythm with a little difference and add some reverb in one of the tracks.
Add compressor in another duplicate rhythm guitar.
Add reverb and delay in lead guitar.
And result in this : http://www.mediafire.com/listen/skhyfob4c8zlueu/FF7BattleAndersongs87Tes...

I will try to choose another sound to the album.

Lord_Bif & Itdanslegs - I made some small EQ adjustments, when I'm finished with the list you can let me know if you want to change it back or tweak it a bit more.

Sooo i know the deadline is in more than a month but i'm such an impatient guy...
I'd like to start a debate about the 5th one !

You all know i'm a FF fan boy, so i'd like the 5th one to be a Final Fantasy Tribute.
I would let people vote for the FF they want BUT, we have to think that it needs enough "good" tracks to do a full album! Also it will be a "only one cover by song" album too so i do not want to be in this situation: "Hey that's not fair all the good songs are already picked, i do not want to play something else than Aeris Theme... blablabla"

In MY opinion, the FFs that deserve a full album are: FF4 (and sequels), FF6, FF7 (already done), FF8, FF9, FF10 (and 10-2), and... voila !
but what about all the other FFs ? We can add those themes: FF NES ERA (1, 2 & 3), FF NEW GENERATION: (11 (and add-ons), 12, 13 (ans sequels), 14, 15 (yet to come)) and FF LOST SONGS (FF5, Chrystal Chronicles (and sequels), FF Tactics (and FFTA), Type-0, Dissidia (and sequel), Chocobo games, movies etc...)

FF5 is a bit alone... do you guys think it has enough good songs to make a full album? It was never one of my favorite so i might be wrong to think the OST doesn't deserves a full album.

Also we can do a themed album like: Towns Themes, Characters Themes, Evil (battle, boss and evil characters themes)... Etc.
But i like the idea of making a tribute album to a specific game or era.

What do you guys think? Speak your mind, it's a debate, if you think it's better to let people chose other games than FF for the 5th album just let me know it too !
Ty for reading ^^

For the 5th album, I don't know all the FF games, But I would love to to something with FF8, FF9 or FF6 :) If, for exemple, I already did a ff8 cover and this will be an album on ff8, can I add what I already did (if nobody want to do it of course)?

INTERESTING OPINION FROM

INTERESTING OPINION FROM TIGER_CHILD
We can do a "Final Fantasy Tribute Album". It's an interesting idea and will help to take FF out of the system for a while and make album about other games (chrono cross & trigger, castlevania, mega man...).
We will go back to FF, but not before the 10th album. But we still can use FF songs if we do a themed album like "Good Vs Evil" or "The 4th Elements" or "Characters Themes" etc.
The rules would be to make AT LEAST 1 song by game from FF1 to FF10 (the newest FF songs are more complicated to cover so no obligations).
And we'll have to fix a limit of songs by game. As FF is so popular i think we would have many entries so if i say "maximum 5 songs/game" that might be not enough... But 10 would be too much...
Anyway...
3 "main" choices:
- Do a huge FF Tribute Album and get rid of specifically FF themed album before the 10th one.
- Do a FF Album based on a specific game or era and keep on proposing FF albums in the vote for the next albums.
- Do a Not FF Album because it's too early to go back to FF.

Your mix was solid man, I just boosted a few frequencies so that guitar and drums stood out a touch more and fell more in line with the rest of the submissions.

Should have the rest of the tunes finished off today.

As for next tune contests I want to say it's a tad early for another Final Fantasy, maybe go with something like a Square Enix tribute to give people a bit more selection?

That's fine BigHeadClan, I

That's fine BigHeadClan, I know my rhythm guitars especially were being drowned out by the multiple leads. I just started using Reaper, so I'm not very good with the EQ'ing and mixing yet. Used Cool Edit Pro forever until I finally decided to upgrade so I could use VST instruments and everything.

D'accord, I also think it's too early for another Final Fantasy... Even this one will contain a lot of FF-Tracks, so I think, it's time to let it rest a bit^___^

I love FF (except the story of X, Tidus and the graphics-only-XIII and that MMORPG-*meh*...), but it's very dominant^^

With "final mix" was only meant to match up the loudness of all tracks (maximizer), homogenizing it in the end, not mixing the mixdown again, that's the job of the author^^

-
Adjusting trivial matter is okay, but greater things and errors (freq. causing bleeding ears and stuff^^) can be repaired better within a new redone mix, if really necessary =) If someone isn't able to mix something, maybe others can help :)

There's never a perfect mix, everything is subjective and now let's remind the

D'accord!

I did 2 renders any time I made an EQ adjustment 1 with adjustments & another without. My approach was to make small touches and to try & avoid stepping on peoples toes if possible.

Looks like people have really different opinions about a FF album.
Here what i'm thinking, in the conversations i had many people seems to love FF8 OST and i really want to play some FF8 tunes ^^.
So let's say everyone here on the forum can give 2 games or themes a bit like we did the last time and on the 1st Mai i'll make a survey on the Facebook page to let people vote during a month.
and ONLY ONE FF will be in the list, the number 8, because j'en ai envie :p

Does it sounds good to you guys ?
If yes my 2 themes will be
- Final Fantasy VIII (the will be the only FF in the list)
- Chrono Trigger & Cross

Have all the changes made

BigHeadClan

Joined: Jan 20 2012

Update: Annnnd here it is, let me know what you all think, I kept the EQ changes to a minimum and included a clean version without them let Hashel which you prefer. If you have nothing in brackets by your song it means that it just had a volume adjustment.


My goal with the EQ was to try and remove any harshness that I could hear in the recordings, although every submission we have thus far is pretty awesome so for better or worse I may have gotten carried away. <-- let me know if I did. lol

Alejandro - You have 3 versions of one winged angel due to it's complexity, one with no EQ, one where with EQ and some volume adjustments for the orchestra bits as they were a tad quiet. (P.S one of the best covers of One winged I've heard to date.)


Also I couldn't find who did the work for the Sonic Collaboration, so I've left the name blank for now. XD

1st stage... idk if it's a good idea.
Collab Album would be cool, totally free, any songs from any game but it needs to be a collab.
Console Album is a cool idea too, we already did a NES album, what console do you want? If i had to pick, i'll chose N64.

Console could be a console model, generation or bits. 8 bits only or 16 bits only, or generations, (Sega Genesis, SNES) (N64, PSX) (Dreamcast, Xbox, PS2, Game Cube) ....
I think generation better because not everyone had the opportunity to have all consoles of generation, and so each choose some music video game from your favorite console.
