Story

C64 was my childhood computer and best friend.

 

I have always been an amateur, an hobbyst if you like, when it comes to producing music.

 

I love creating music just for my own liking and this is the first time I am sharing something that I did, with others.

 

So please be tolerant 😊

 

This remix is my first attempt to use digital synthisizers with Cakewalk DAW, all instruments are designed from scratch using T-Force Alpha Plus VST, the drums are by 99 sounds, which are all free software.

 

Hope you enjoy it.

Welcome to the remix community, Oxx!

I have to admit, I had to do a double-take on your remixer status after I listened to this remix - this is by a newcomer? It's really good! I like the minimalist electro-drums, the vocal style chord hits, all the ornaments of the lead - all sounds great! The arrangement might be on the simple side, but it's done very well. The final mix sounds a bit too dry to my ears, but considering the genre, even that seems appropriate.

I hope to hear more remixes from you in the future, whether in this style or in another!

Welcome to the remix scene, Oxx. You delivered a great start with a classic tune by Rob Hubbard. Your attempt of remixing Ace II really is a good one. I love the choice of sounds - especially that choir sound reminds me of Enjoy the silence by Depeche Mode which is a good thing! 😊 I just stumbled upon the T-Force Alpha VST a few weeks back and wondered what sounds it may be capable of. Now I know! 😊 The track lacks a bit of punchyness for this genre but doesn't sound terrible at all. It's just that little oomph that is missing. Maybe if you tinker around a bit with compression and eq'ing your mix will benefit from that in the future. I encourage you to keep on remixing - I really had fun listening to your first track here on RKO and hope there is lots more to come!
