Hi there! Last time I was here, I was looking for ideas for FFIX songs to remaster or remake. Since then I've done a few and I'd like to share. I would greatly appreciate any critique or if you have any requests that would be cool too!

I dunno how you haven't had replies yet, Eternal Harvest sent shivers up my spine.
You can pretty much just choke all your problems.

Haha, it's all good. I just want people to listen and hopefully show them something good. I'm glad you liked the Eternal Harvest one. I had a lot of fun doing that one.

I enjoyed them, particularly Eternal Harvest. I thought Battle 2 was too reverby in places though, and didn't have enough impact. That being said, Battle 2 is a very difficult song to remaster, mainly due to it already being near perfect - the song already hits the notes 'needed'. Fairy Battle was great, loved it's light hearted tone like the original, but with a bit more kick to it.

Dunno how long you've been remastering for, sounds like over 5 years at least, but you've got an ear for the melodramatic songs moreso than battle ones. You like to enhance sadder tones rather than upbeat ones.
Try some of the following:
Garnet Theme
Cleyra Trunk
Iifa Tree
Fossil Roo
Wounded (FF8)
Silence and Motion (FF8) - this one is tough, more of a play around. Very customizable song.

Outside of FF here's one which would be interesting:
American Diplomacy - Killer7
Visualize it. And If you believe it, you can do all sorts - Alex Higgins

Thank you so much for your very thoughtful critique. I have been mastering for a bit over a year now. I think you've hit the nail on the head on many points. I'm really not very great so far at battle songs. I don't really have a handle on instrument balancing and how to make things sound how I want them in my head.

Some of my initial problems were a combination of my uploads to YT getting messed up in the upload process. Now though, it's mostly just an issue of my own lack of skill.

I really enjoy softer songs as you said and I think they tend to resonate more with me. Especially the simpler ones. Though, funny you mention silence and motion. You are the like third person to say I should try it out. I will look into the songs you recommended! Thank you so much.

They are pretty good my dude. You should do some Chrono Cross ones but keep in mind if you mess them up I'm going to stab you.

Pretty awesome like the others you have made, especially love Neclord Battle. Next something from Xenogears maybe?

Ask and you shall receive! This was really fun to work with though YouTube gave me some trouble with the track.
