Yehat finally remixed
« on: April 14, 2007, 10:59:04 pm »

FYI; Yehat is finally remixed. Check out Riku's and Harri's (he composed "Credits" with Riku) weird new "TÄDÄÄ" project at www.mikseri.net/tadaa

Strange remix, I was expecting it to be more orchestral, although the synth work makes them feel more alien. I have to say though, I don't like the tempo of it, If they would slow it down, then I think it'd sound closer to the original feel...

8/10...
Okay, tweaking the Mp3 on Audicity. By slowing it's speed down my 15% (Change Speed, -15% on the bar) the whole feel of the song changes. It changes from being up-beat and dancish to ambient and rather striving. Like they're actually Galactic Warriors, with their precious goal lost. I'd say it improves it a heck of a lot.

It's not bad, but I think it lacks the same feel as the original, which I consider to be perhaps the finest game song ever composed. It just feels kind of upbeat and party-ish, an atmosphere nothing like the first one and not really fitting for the Yehat. It also seems too "busy" with all the beats and techno sounds.

I'm not always down on remixes different markedly from the original, but I'm a little disappointed with this one.

I like it!
It also fits perfectly their Scottish accent. Not that the original has something wrong, but I like changes.

Like many others here, I was expecting a symphonic remix, so this one came as a bit of a surprise. However, it's still a remix (as opposed to an original replacement track like some of the Precursors' stuff), even though the remix leaves the original melody behind quite a lot.

It took me quite a few listens to really form an opinion on this one precisely because it's different to what I expected. I feel it captures the spirit of the original quite well while bringing it into a more ambient style that works better with speech and is also very listenable. Implementation of the chosen style is, as always, top-notch (although this tune in particular exposes limitations of cheap headphones very well!).

I'm curious as to why this has not been released by the Precursors but as a side project; is this one of the mixes the Precursors team wasn't happy with as a whole or are you testing the waters, so to speak?

Yeah, it is quite different to what we were expecting, although I have to say it is one top notch remix.

Although, this makes me think if you guys would be able to "remaster" it with the requests of the community, like for instance, mine would be to slow down the mix by 15% (Making the theme more recognizable and making the mix in itself much more ambient). I can guess other people's requests would be to use the choir pads further Smiley.

Please don't say so! Remember the Orz! *frumple*

I've also uploaded a more remastered version here: http://www.savefile.com/files/641491 (a bit more Scottish feel)

I see you sloowed it down, but I DO NOT like the warble effect going on as it's deducting from the melody...

I can't hear much difference, although the lead with the Yehat Melody has a higher volume, which is good. Maybe if you could add the Sharp "epic" strings each time it finishes a segment (like in the begining, hard to explain :/).

I can't really hear anything scottish in this currently. (03:36)

All I'd say is get rid of the Warble, and maybe add some more stuff to it (like having a trance piano instrument echoing with the main melody, that'd be cool Cheesy ).

Well, that was just a quick mock-up. I don't want to do more work right now, but I'd estimate there are about 0.5% chances that I'll do this in the appropriate (sic) future. Yeah, not near, only appropriate.  Wink

The samples sound good, even though I hate the synth. The tempo is good.

In my opinion the first 1:40 minutes sound empty, like a song without a lead instrument. After 1:40 it gets good.
I would either cut the first 1:40, shorten it (say the first 30-40 seconds are fine) or at least start the melody going with some other instrument (second run: I can hear the faint ambient playing the theme, but it's too low).

As for an official remix candidate..  I just can't get over that synth.. It's so not-Yehat IMHO.  But -->

(third run)
All in all I like the tune Smiley

(fourth run)
I won't be upset if this is the final mix, but I still believe that you should experiment with other (lead) instruments.
Good work Smiley


..
(tenth run at least)
ooh! is this still on? Tongue

For the record, releasing this remix was Riku's decision alone and came as a total surprise to the rest of the Precursors. VOiD and I have been working on our own remix for a while without really getting anywhere, so I guess it's a relief to see something getting made at all. We're still discussing how to handle this, but I have so far suggested that I can make it more orchestral if Riku wants me to. Whether or not this will be our official Precursors remix remains to be seen.

Personally I think it's a great remix, but I also agree that it's a bit slow in the buildup.

I don't mind the slow buildup, but the song seems to lose its direction for the last minute.

I like how it sounds when you slow it down by 15% and then play it backwards. Tongue
