This update, though late by a week, marks my third year as curator of Sound Test. I honestly didn't think I'd last this long. I would like to thank everyone who has helped me in this endeavor, particularly my fellow staff members and my prolific fellow remixers.
In conjunction with the release of, in Mac's words, "the finally completely complete version of Final Fantasy IV," I have decided to feature another of Daryl Banner's albums, entitled Dark Paladin. Following a suggestion made on the boards, the pieces shall be posted in bigger bulks, perhaps three to five pieces at a time, though still following the "storytelling by audio" format Daryl has utilized in the past. The first four pieces are featured in today's update. They are all phenomenal pieces, so do check them out.
Now, I won't be going into details about the remixes, at least not in today's update, because I shall be discussing something else. Did I not inform everyone last time that today's update shall be special? Look at the top of the page. Notice that little addition that says "Make a Request?" Yup, you read that right. Daryl Banner, Kain Vinosec, Garrett Lindquist and I have formed a small group that shall remix requested tracks for free. You can ask for a mix of your favorite video game music via e-mail, with certain obvious inclusion criteria, of course. As this is an RPG site, only music from RPGs shall be accepted. A certain degree of specificity shall be required. The vaguest request that shall be allowed is for a specific game, e.g. a remix of any track from Demon's Souls. You can request for specific instrumentation, style, or even who you want to make the remix. A confirmation e-mail shall be sent for those whose requests have been picked up by one of us four. Don't feel too bad if your request doesn't get picked up; likewise, please don't be too demanding. After all, these are being done for free and for the love of video game music. Occasionally, requests will interest more than one remixer, in which case, back-to-back features shall be done.
Well, that's it. Happy listening, everyone. If you have any questions about requesting, please ask them on the boards. Have a great weekend!
