Well ,
It's been a long time since i haven't done such a thing ,
But i'm on way to create an ''album'' with all Castlevania's Soundtrack from the NDS Games :
- Dawn of Sorrow
- Portrait of Ruins
- Order of Ecclesia

This will certainly take a longgggg time to do , but i'm almost certain i can finish this :p

I will post some ''previews'' in the comments !
Cheers

Looking forward to it.
Are they gonna be arrangements, remixes, retro/downmixes, or just one big OST?

I'm highly interested in this, and here I'm posting something so I am notified every time this page is updated!
Really looking forward to listen to it!  :)
Now I'm tired, eternally walking... forever dying, and never stopping. I feel in sorrow, all I see is white. I’m following a blind way beneath a sad sky.

Invitation of a Crazed Moon is one of my favorites.

I wonder though if this one has too much reverb, or something. In the lead I mean. It sounds like you're using a violin and something else perhaps along with it? It works fine on the flute or whatever comes after that section. But the violin segment I think should sound like it cuts in quicker, without having to softly ease into each note, nor linger too long.

I don't know if any of that made sense. I don't know any musical terms. I hope you can understand what I'm trying to say.

Yep , that is the main problem of my recording method... Many reverb afterward .. :(
Unfortunatly , it is the best quality recording software i can afford for the moment , but i take your remarks seriously , and will try to correct thoses things ASAP.

This rendition of Invitation of a Crazed Moon is superb, this only makes me want to hear the entire album even more. Also this one (http://soundcloud.com/jbetbrice/dragon-quest-iii-overworld) started playing automatically and brought so many memories from Fly/Dragon Quest anime. :)

Great work, and and excellent choice for starting, if you mind.
I'm looking forward to listening to the entire work.
Congratulations!

Heard them and i find your work very nice. I hope to complete your project, since someone else here was going to remake them, but he never made it, he just disappeared.

What software are you using to record?
The reverb is really really strong.  Like, 'giant metal tank' strong.

You generally only want 10-15% reverb.  Once you climb up past 25% it starts getting all mucked up.  Trust me on this, I've learned to ease off on reverb in the last few years (though I keep it on cave themes, orchestral hall arrangements, and EarthBound trippy music).

The composition seems great (is this a rip or did you compose it yourself?), and so is the instrumentation... though you said it would be fully orchestral, and this has some synth in there that's quite modern.  But yeah, the reverb.  It's messing up the pieces....
