Very good remix
The first Rayman game really was the only good one. Loved the music and backgrounds, and this is one of my favorite songs. Excellent re-imagined remix of the original. The new instruments really surprised me and flowed perfectly with each mood the melody takes you through.
Jeez man, after learning a lead like this there's so much you could do with it. You should've evaluated the song carefully and seen what kind of awesome remix-type stuff could go with the melody. All in all the song is terribly boring and the piano has a detuned effect which is driving me crazy. Good job though, I know how hard it is to try remixing songs on your own (I assume you didn't use a midi...?). And try adding some drums, that would seriously spruce this up.
Good luck for the future. Diamond Dust Zone was one of my all time favorite Sonic songs too.
Sorry you didn't enjoy the piano, it was hard work. Drums are a bitch to use, espicially with the FPC, which is all I have to work with. I make some covers with drums, but I mostly keep them out because of the overall difficulty of them.
Midis are evil. I don't use them.
Thanks for your review.
I compose music like this all the time, but keep them to myself. Wonder how far they'd go if I submitted them... Oh right, your song. Well, I do a lot of crazy classical/techno mash ups, so I know where I'm coming from when I say this song rules. I honestly think you could fix some of your levels (the leads are a bit too loud compared to the rest of the awesomeness). On the whole this is more unique than your old fashioned techno-classical. Definitely has a style I look for in songs. Good job, keep up this kinda thing.
You know, it reminds me of a song in "Outrun 2019" for the sega genesis. I don't know if you've ever played that game. I don't remember what stage it is, but you'll probably hear it if you play through the game.
