I couldn’t find any rules if covers are allowed here, so feel free to remove this if this is not appropriate.
From time to time, some weird inspiration hits and l end up trying to do some cover stuff and I really don’t know if it’s wise to mess up with the classics but this time I just wanted to give a shot.
Original track (composed by Nobuo Uematsu) is from a game Final Fantasy 7 which was released back in 1997 for PS1 and for me it’s still one of the best games ever (and has one of the best soundtracks). Remake of the game (or actually the 1st part) was released this year, but this cover is more about the track from the original game.
The track itself is very simple and can be cut down pretty much into 2 parts. For me it was the haunting feeling that it created back in days. In some way I wanted to cherish the feeling but still go ham with more harder stuff.
I actually constructed the track from end to beginning. The goal was just to get more experience in mixing and learn more about mixing in sort of symphonic metal genre. It seems like really hard style to get even some decent results. So am I happy with result? Partly, lots of things that I couldn’t dial in but again, really good session from learning perspective.
So… let me know how this worked for you, especially for those who are familiar with the track and game? I hope and believe that there should be at least couple
And as always before: any feedback, criticism or even roasting is warmly welcome!
