I do agree you occasionally seem to miss a note, but I think that's mostly because in the games' version they used more instruments and here you're trying to do everything with a piano which is tough. It's never really a biggie, but at 00:54 it does bother me a little. Those higher notes you hear just before that moment (I think it's Mumbo's xylophone that plays them in the game) are actually played again by a flute, but you only play them once and then you go over to only doing the banjo again. That part just sounded weird to me.

In order to improve it, I think it might be an idea to re-record the song a couple of times and only do one instrument on each. Then in the end put it all together, edit it a little and you might have the full song covered on the piano which might turn out really nice. Otherwise, you could perhaps consider adding an extra instrument.

Overall 3.5 out of 5. You covered this song pretty nicely, but there's still room for some improvement in my opinion.

Strange. I don't really remember this. The first part seemed more like that song they play during mission like events (like saving the garden from the missiles). The latter part actually sounded more like an ending theme. I guess you combined these two themes in one song? I don't know, I can't remember all too well what the ending of FF VIII was like.

In any case, you did another good job remixing Final Fantasy VIII's music in my opinion. While the changes were subtle, I could definitely hear them and altogether it's a nice sounding track.

Overall 4.5 out of 5. Keep up the excellent work. I see you haven't uploaded in almost two years, which is a shame. I really hope you'll be making more remixes again soon.

Pretty interesting

Interesting version of the Deku Palace theme. I didn't even recognize it at first while I've played Majora's Mask many times already. Anyway, this version sounds quite suitable for use in a gameboy version.

I think you did a pretty good job remixing it. You made it a rather short loop though. I can remember some more parts being in the original theme from the game. Would've been nice if you remixed those parts into it too.

Overall 8 out of 10, 4 out of 5. Nice job.

Nice

Again a nice ocarina song from you. This sounds a bit like the tune when you are diving underwater inside Gruntilda's Lair. I remember the theme used to alter to something like what you're playing here. It almost makes me think that they actually used an ocarina in the game for that part, but I doubt it.

Overall 9 out of 10, 5 out of 5. Good work. I like how you're doing some of Banjo-Kazooie's music as well. I think both Ocarina of Time and Banjo-Kazooie have very memorable and recognizable soundtracks and it's nice to hear someone doing their own attempts.

Ocarina-Kid responds:

You're right it's a lot closer to the underwater theme than the original, I never realised that haha. I adore both these soundtracks (never would have guessed hey) and I'm glad you enjoyed my attempt, as simple as it is. Thanks for your indepth reviews Auz, muchly appreciated! You're a good guy :)

Great job

I like it very much. You played it very well in my opinion and the usage of an ocarina kinda suits this song. The original sounded a bit happier if I remember correctly, but I like the sound of this version too. It's a bit more down somehow, which is actually more like the atmosphere of Jinjo Village in the game.

Overall 10 out of 10, 5 out of 5. Probably the best work I've heard from you yet. Keep up the good work.

Ocarina-Kid responds:

Cheers Auz that means a lot coming from you, again I'm glad you enjoyed it (even if just one person enjoys it then my job is done) If there's anything you'd like to hear I'd love to give it a shot. Thanks again dude.

Nice

Very nicely played in my opinion.

I think your ocarina play on the first track (Title Screen) is much better than the other submission you uploaded in which you played the same tune. Maybe you should consider trying again and reuploading it.

For the rest I think you did well on all the other tunes too.

Overall 9 out of 10, 5 out of 5. Good job. Again, keep practicing :)

~Auz

Ocarina-Kid responds:

That's a good idea, thanks for suggesting that. Also thanks again for the review and kindness :)

Good

This is more like it. Seems like in this one you tried to make more of a coherent song rather than just some random playing. I agree that it's nice how diverse your work is so far. Sounds like you guys can do some rock, blues, funk and probably more guitar styles if you want.

The sound quality could be tuned up a little bit, but that's all the criticism I have on this one.

Also, if you can get some more instruments in there, like some drum or base loop, that would definitely be nice. I don't know if you got the equipment for that though...

Overall 9 out of 10, 5 out of 5. Hopefully you got more works like this.

gamejunkie responds:

Thanks Auz, we think we have the sound volume glitches fixed. And a variety of work and styles will be coming soon.

Thanks for the great review.
Cheers gamejunkie.

Hmm

I agree with SCTE3 that the volume seems a bit turned down on this one. Might want to see if you can edit it a bit and turn it up. The guitar effect was quite nice though, but this sounded a bit too much like just playing around with effects and not an actual attempt at anything.

Overall 6 out of 10, 3 out of 5. It's not bad, but I liked your first submission better. Personally I don't think I would've uploaded this if I were you because it's just too short and doesn't really seem to have an idea behind it, nor much effort.

~Auz

gamejunkie responds:

Thanks. Actually the problem with the sound is the recording volume was too high, but now we know that, it wont happen again. And take my word for it, plenty of effort went in here, we are just experimenting with different things. Length of tunes being one of them.

But thanks again for your honest appraisal, much appreciated.
Cheers gamejunkie.

Sounds good to me

It sounds good in my opinion. Some pretty good, relaxed guitar play.

The only point of criticism I can think of is that I think I can hear some noise somewhere halfway at around 0:38 seconds. Guessing it's just the amplifier being turned up. Perhaps you could've cut that out? Well for a test it's no big deal, but in a real attempt at a song it would be better to cut that kind of stuff out of course.

Overall 8 out of 10, 4 out of 5. I do feel like I have to give it a bit lower for it being a jam session and not an actual song. But it's a nice first submission. Sounds promising so far.

~Auz

gamejunkie responds:

Thanks again Auz. The noise you hear, was my damn dog trying to catch a fly and bumping something he should not have. He has been barred from all future sessions.

Appreciate the great review.
Cheers gamejunkie.

Hmmm

The tune is quite catchy, but overall the song is a bit simple and it isn't very dynamic. Also, after a while the tune does start to annoy a little bit. I kinda like how it sounds so silly though.

Overall 6 out of 10, 3 out of 5. Not bad, but nothing great either. I'm guessing not that much effort went into this. Try harder next time I'd say.
