Music and suggestions page update

Some of you might have noticed it already, but I haven’t found the time/motivation to write a post about it yet. The Music page and the Suggestions page got a huge update last weekend. So let’s dive right into it:

Music page

This is something I wanted to do for a while now. Previously, it was quite a mess. A main page with links to sub-pages related to franchises. A pain to maintain. So I used up last weekend (the WHOLE WEEKEND) to make a legit Music page with ALL (!) songs made so far sorted by release year (excluding OST, which still have their own page, but including album projects). There you can listen to and download the tracks directly. Icons and short descriptions show you what franchises and themes you can expect in the song. I hope you give the page a visit and find some cool songs you didn’t know about yet.

Let me give you a little warning though: Since there is so much stuff on that page, it might take a while to load. I tried to make navigating easier by adding a table of contents at the top of the page, I hope this will help a bit. (I actually added that to other big pages like the OST page and the Album Projects page as well).

Happy browsing!

Suggestions page

Some of you posted comments on that page before, but that didn’t really help me very much, as I didn’t even get notified if someone comments. Also, I primarily wanted to see what most of you would be interested in. So now we try a different approach. By now you should already know how polls work, so the new Suggestions page basically features a never-ending poll where you can vote for other people’s suggestions or throw your own idea into the ring, which other people can then vote for.

You can suggest a single theme or a combination, but you can only vote once, so think carefully. After a suggestions reaches a significantly high amount of votes, there’s a high chance it will be turned into a song. After that happened, the suggestion will be removed from the list and all who voted for it regain their right to vote…granted I will be able to do that of course without resetting the whole thing.

Happy voting!

Video

As usual we have a video to go along with this post, because I noticed that without a video, all my efforts will remain unnoticed. Since you already know more than the video says, I suggest heading to those pages and find out for yourself now.

I started working on Ultimate Elemental Being, the final Elemental Disciple mix including all 8 elements. This will likely be the next upload, although I might throw one or two OST Focus videos in-between. I’ll try to finish the song until next Sunday, but since this is such a big mix, I’m not sure if I can make it. I’ll try my best though.

Deku Rave

DekuPalaceCommentThis wasn’t exactly planned, but…it had to be done.

A Deku Palace (The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask [3D]) remix. Nothing more, nothing less.

Of course this delays the Waluigi Pinball remix a bit…but I need some more time for that anyway. I’ve been in such a Majora’s Mask mood since the release of the Hyrule Warriors DLC and Majora’s Mask 3D of course, so I really couldn’t help it.

As usual you’ll find the video and download below. Want to show your appreciation? Donate!

Deku Rave (488 downloads)

And here’s the video:

So, next is definitely Waluigi Pinball, no excuses. As for the song after that, it looks like Hyper Zone is winning! Don’t forget to vote, the voting ends on March, 5th:

Voting winner and next song voting

Waluigi Pinball won the last voting and will be done next!

Second and third place were pretty close, so the next voting is only about which of these songs will be the next one, the loser comes after the winner basically. Not very important you might say, but it’s also a test since I upgraded the voting plug-in. It should now finally allow Google+ (and with that YouTube) users to vote! I hope it works as expected, let’s try it out!

[yop_poll id=”7″]

Mask of Madness

To celebrate the release of the Majora’s Mask DLC for Hyrule Warriors as well as the release of Majora’s Mask 3D next week, have a Majora’s Mask remix!

The mix features quite a few references, most significantly Song of Healing and Deku Palace, but I’m sure fans know the other themes as well! I was tempted to use some sounds from the game and include them in the song as well, do you remember all those sounds? One of the parts is like a boss rush…now I’m really hyped to see what the 3D version will have to offer!

As usual you’ll find the video and download below. Want to show your appreciation? Donate!

Mask of Madness (1740 downloads)

And here’s the video:

I wanted to include more visuals in the video (like actual gameplay references) but it was such a hassle, quality-wise and such…luckily I found that awesome GIF of dancing Deku Scrubs, lots of credit to its creator!

Next up we have…

[yop_poll id=”6″]

Waluigi Pinball! I’ll prepare the next voting until next week, which will only focus on the Kirby and the Castlevania song, since they seemed to be anticipated as well. I’ll update you on that matter next week, might even upgrade my plug-in for y’all.

I hope you enjoyed the song, I’ll see ya again next week!

Artificial Magic

And here’s the winner of the last voting, a remix of Strawberry Crisis!! from Touhou 03 – Phantasmagoria of Dim. Dream (also featuring Dullahan Under the Willows from Touhou 14)!

I thought the two red heads would work quite well together and it’s not surprising that they actually do.

As usual you’ll find the video and download below. Want to show your appreciation? Donate!

Artificial Magic (735 downloads)

And here’s the video:

The mix is more on the slow side and feels a bit…unlike my style. I did expect to be a bit more inspired by that theme honestly, but the result is interesting nonetheless. I hope you agree XO

Next up we have a Majora’s Mask remix (likely Deku Palace +) right in time for the release of the Majora’s Mask DLC for Hyrule Warriors and the release of Majora’s Mask 3D. You can still vote for the remix after that, at the time I write this it looks like Waluigi Pinball is going to make it:

Next week we’ll have another OST Focus if all goes well. That’s all, folks!

Voting winner and future votings

You voted for:

[yop_poll id=”5″]

Strawberry Crisis!! Yumemi’s theme, the final boss of Touhou 3. I was quite surprised that the Pokémon song didn’t get a lot of votes…

I’ll try to finish the song until next Sunday. After that, we’ll have a Majora’s Mask special with a remix of Deku Palace and maybe some additional references!

After that we’ll start a voting marathon. There’ll be a voting every 2 weeks, so you can vote on the next song while I’m working on the previous winner. And we start today with the voting for the song after the Majora’s Mask 3D special, here you go:

Another year of possibilities

It’s time for a new year!

And as every year, I’ll give you a small preview what will await you. I think…this year’s preview might be the most accurate so far!

But before we get to the preview I have a little voting for you: You can choose the theme for the first remix of this year! Here it is:

[yop_poll id=”5″]

So what are the candidates and what are we dealing with?

1.) Kanto Trainer Battle

The first trainer battle theme in Pokémon history and probably the most popular.

2.) Strawberry Crisis!!

The underrated, catchy theme of Yumemi in Touhou 03: Phantasmagoria of Dim. Dream.

3.) Bad Apple!!

The infamous stage theme from Touhou 04: Lotus Land Story.

4.) Hyper Zone

The theme of the fake final boss of Kirby’s Dreamland 3, Dark Matter. It’s a crazy tune that I’d likely mix with Koishi’s theme, Hartmann’s Youkai Girl.

5.) Heart of Fire

The theme of Belmont badass Julius. It’s definitely one of the most catchy post-NES era Castlevania themes and has been requested a lot as well.

The voting ends on January, 15th!

Now the preview includes two special months I have prepared for you, VG Arch Rivals Vol. 2 and another Disciple Month! This time it goes a different direction, as we have run out of elements! Finally, the mix that includes all the elemental disciple songs, Ultimate Elemental Being!

Here’s the related video:

With that said, I’ll take a short break for 1-2 weeks. I’ll await the results of the voting then. See ya!
