I'm feeling so PUMPED and psyched that I want to write an update on here! I should catch up with favorite music artists around NG soon, as well as on Sound Cloud. I'm so overdue for just setting time aside to listen to some tunes... I've been sucked into writing my fan fiction and reading other people's fan fiction, along with some role-play writing with friends (at Dreamwidth) on the side! ^^;;
I'm not quite there to finishing this remix, but so far it's been amazing progress!! I really like the beats and synths I've been coming up with so far. I've recorded some speaking parts too, some of them by yours truly. LexaHergon, one of my buddies on here and Skype, inspired me a little for an extra speaker part I hadn't thought of. Hey, it turns out it works. Thanks!
For the intro... In the Darius Twin game I remember playing so much on the Super Nintendo, there's this alarm sound that goes off, followed by a message on the screen just before the boss ship arrives. I'm inserting something like that. :D
Darius Twin does have some good music tracks to go with the challenging side-scrolling in the spaceship battle game. (Search for "Darius Twin OST" on YouTube! It's all there!)
I know there's one other Darius Twin remix idea I'll want to do, something that came to me out of nowhere. As I first heard this play in my head, I thought, "Oh my God... YES!" This other idea I really love and will try my hardest to accomplish will blow us all away, I know it.
It's a blast when it comes to experimenting. Putting in my own spin when it comes to remixes. I'm on a roll, and looking forward to figuring out what original melodies and basslines (and more beats) of awesomeness I can come up with.
It'll be at least a month until this Boss Theme remix is all done. This week, I've been in the process of getting all I want in variations of the main melodies. I know I want 2 to 3 variations of that. Piece by piece, I managed to get one of them done today! After I get all that done--or at least half done--I'll come up with more original material to mix in.
Sometime last year, I was messing around while jamming on the Waspy LE VST I've got. I played the Darius Twin Boss melody half a step down-pitched from the original notes. In tweaking the options and stuff I created a really nice synth in doing so. That really fun and most excellent jam session first gave me inspiration to want to do this remix project. (YEP, the synth I've played with is going in there! *beaming with excitement*)
