Wow, I am just wrapping up a jazz version of Time Corridor and getting the digital licensing ready. A few others I am getting ready from Chrono Cross and Castlevania as well. Great minds, eh?

Are you mixing at home? And at you using automation and compression/eq at all? Noticing the piano melody is a bit pushed back in Time Corridor. But otherwise well done.

Hey Jazz Paladin,

Hard to avoid the same songs when going for epic melodies

Yeah I mix everything myself

I just use automation for track volume changes, like fades

I use compression and EQ to get the sounds I am looking for, and it varies greatly from song to song, from instrument to instrument.

Glad you liked Corridors of Time! Send me the link(s) for yours when they're done and I'll be happy to check them out and leave a nice comment
