    • OCR of the Week #3

      10 years ago

      realdeal_55

      Hey, everybody! I'm doing an OCR feature early this week, because last week's was late. If you haven't checked it out yet, you can check it out in that link I just made, or in any of these ones.

      This week is number three!
      ReMix â€" Blue Skies Over Guardia
      ReMixer - DarkeSword
      Source Game - Chrono Trigger
      Console - SNES
      Genre â€" Folk-ish Orchestral
      This is one of those songs that just makes you feel good inside (especially in the morning). If you know anything about what I'm talking about when I say that, then you'll definitely enjoy this one. It's in an odd meter (7/8, specifically), which is an extra eighth note per measure than the original tune; the meter really complements the feel of the song. A catchy, memorable tune from one of the 90s' most celebrated RPG's. Definitely check it out.

      Watch out next week for some more 7/8 fun times!

      DFTBA!

    • OCR of the Week #2: SuperBuckJazz

      10 years ago

      realdeal_55

      Hey, all!

      Last week, I posted my first OverClocked Remix feature, and I said I’d be back this week with a new one. Well, I’m delivering on that promise (although a day or so late).

      Feature number two!
      ReMix â€" SuperBuckJazz
      ReMixers - Estradasphere
      Source Game - Super Mario Bros. 2
      Console - NES
      Genre â€" Jazz, Big Band
      Alright, everybody: If you’re at all into jazz or big band stuff you are going to looove this mix. High energy from the start, this recording by a live band keeps your toes tapping all the way through. Excellent solo work, a very tight rhythm section, and killer arrangement skills all contribute to the awesomeness of this mix. Highly recommended, and hey: It’s free! Check it out!

      That’s it for this week. See ya, soon!

      (PS: If you want to check out the first OCRemix feature, you can find it here!)

    • OCR of the Week #1

      10 years ago

      Hey, everybody!

      In my conversations with people, I've discovered that not many people have heard of OverClocked ReMix (OCR for short). OCR is an online community dedicated, basically, to the development of video game music as a legitimate musical art form. From their FAQ:

      OverClocked ReMix is a not-for-profit site that accepts high-quality submissions of arranged or "ReMixed" video game music from talented ReMixers the world over. These arrangements are more than just updated versions of the original tracks, but are reinterpretations, often in an entirely different musical genre than the source material. What sets OverClocked ReMix apart from other video game music sites is the breadth of its content. We offer music from almost any style imaginable. Hillbilly, techno, rap, orchestralâ€'you name itâ€'we accept ReMixes from virtually any console or computer game soundtrack.


      Personally, I believe that OCR is both extremely important and awesome. There are mixes from pretty much every game ever made, in pretty much every style and genre. Check them out at www.ocremix.org . You can search for mixes from a specific game in the Quick Search box on the left side of the page, or you can browse games by letter using the alphabet in the top-right corner. You can download an MP3 of any mix you find by clicking "Download MP3" on the right-hand side. Right-click on any of the mirrors shown and click "Save target as..." or similar. If you have any trouble, just let me know, and I'll be glad to help you out.

      Anyway, I'm going to write something here on what is hopefully a regular basis featuring some cool stuff from OCR, so hopefully I can get more people checking out this stuff.

      My first feature for you guys:
      ReMix - Wanderer on the Offensive (Live Edit)
      ReMixers - B33J, Cerrax, Sixto Sounds, yodaisbetter
      Source Game - Shadow of the Colossus
      Console - PS2
      Genre - Instrumental, hard-rock/metal
      This mix has so much energy, so much power, and so much awesome packed into four minutes and eighteen seconds that I couldn't not feature it first. Some wicked instrumental work in this recording, especially when it comes to solos. Ever wanted to hear what hard-rock viola sounds like? Then check out this mix. Heck, check it out anyway. It's definitely worth your time.

      That's it for this week; I'll catch you again with another one very soon!

      Peace out!

      (PS: In case you're wondering: Yes, OCR is perfectly legal. Remixes and derivative works qualify as fair use of copyrighted material, so these people are perfectly within their right to reinterpret video game music and to make the reinterpretations freely available.)

      Hey, everybody,

      If you have Facebook, please go here and vote for KEYANO in the AMP Energy $100,000 Rock Off. You can vote once per day up to (and including) May 3rd.

      We really need some help; they've gone and put Keyano College (small school in small-town Alberta) up against York University (huge freaking school in the largest city in Canada). If you can spare a minute over the next week or so, it'd be highly appreciated!

      Peace out,

    • Random HDPVR Cords

      in Forums > Random HDPVR Cords | Follow this topic

      realdeal_55

      Hey, all. Hopefully this is a quick one for ya...

      So, my Dad just bought this fancy new HDPVR. It's a Pace TDC770 series. He was having trouble setting it up, so he got me to do it. Following the instructions, I got it to work, and we're pretty happy with it. However, when I was done setting it up, there were two random cords left over out of the box that I have no idea what to do with; the manual makes no reference to either of these, and since I'm kinda new with this HD stuff, I figured I'd ask you guys about it.

      The first one has one end that looks like this:
      img0009zcj.jpg
      And another end with these familiar faces:
      img0010r.jpg
      That first end is the one that confuses me. Any insight?

      This one is even more confusing; both ends in this shot:
      img0011wch.jpg
      The one end looks like a standard 3.5mm audio jack, but the other end looks like an IR antenna receiver of some kind. On the back of the big black end, there's a peel-off adhesive.

      Any idea what these do, and how they work with my HDPVR? The box seems to work fine without them, which is why it's fairly disconcerting to have these left over.

    • Playoff Pics 2009 Version 2

      10 years ago

      realdeal_55

      So, I took some of the suggestions I got from friends on Facebook, and along with the new information that I might be in a pool with up to eight other people, I added some more players and did some further organization of my pics:
      playoffpics2009version2.png
      (Click for larger)
      (Edit: Yes, I'm aware that David Krejci was picked twice on Team 4; purely accidental. I've replaced one of them with Marc Recci (Boston, RW).)
      Team 1, obviously, constitutes my main priorities, followed by Team 2, etc.

      I feel like I'm going in more prepared than I was the first time. What do y'all think, now?

    • Hockey Pool Picks - Playoffs 2009

      10 years ago

      realdeal_55

      Hey, all! How you doing?
      Does anybody with more hockey knowledge than me have (doesn't take much) have any insight on my picks for my 5-person playoff pool? I know the teams for the playoffs aren't set in stone yet, but I've gotta start working on my team, now. If I have to, I can edit this list, later.
      playoffpics2009.png
      It's a draft-style selection. 10 skaters and 1 goalie. The top section players are my top choices, obviously, and everybody else goes in order.

      What do y'all think?

      Hmmm, I was in grade 8. I was really, really lame back then.

      And I'm really really lame today, so nothing's really changed.

      Hey, all!

      For those of you who haven't figured it out by my new display pic, I'm running for the presidency of my college's student association next year. I'm running unopposed, so I don't have that heavy a campaign planned, but you should definitely check out my website and give me your feedback on it!

      Also, you should definitely hit the Facebook Group for the campaign and join up! I know none of you are eligible to vote, but it's nice to have the support. smiley0.gif

      Thanks for reading!

Its my only means of internet communication (aside from FFXI forums and FFXI itself) that I use constantly. I mean, I have an e-mail, but I hate e-mails.

      Just PM me for the link or whatever if you don't know or can't find it. I'd love to keep in touch with you.
