This is a pretty good transcription. It seems to capture the feel of the original quite well for the most part and overall. Instruments 4, 6, 7, and 8 could potentially be changed though. Measures 15 through 21 didn't feel quite as strong as in the original, so that's something I'd consider maybe tweaking if you were thinking about improving this song.

Since I've been listening to this on loop for at least 30 min (probably longer), I feel obligated to make a post:
This is a banger

EDIT: so I made this post and then didn't turn the loop off and now I've been listening for at least an hour :balrog:

Ah, Launch Base Zone! I recognized this song immediately. Launch Base Zone Act 2, PC version. Good song indeed, and also a pretty good transcription with a bit of pizzazz in one of the background tracks.

It's technically based off the leaked prototype version, that's where all the extra parts come from.

Hi all,
I've been using OrgMaker 2.1.0 since around 2018-ish, though I've only shown my music to friends.
My more recent works are based off of an artist by the name of "inabakumori".
I am wondering what opinions the internet people have. I call this song "Devoid of Focus". (I am quite the newbie: I do not know how to embed, sorry.)

Not bad. It has an up-beat, urgent feel to it, and the instrument choice and usage of the drum tacks helps feed into that up-beat sense of urgency. The way the instruments fit together with each other was decent at times, but there were other times where it could have felt a bit more crisp, and the song just felt a bit busy.

The song starts to feel like the same old thing after about the 78th measure or so, and the bridges in between don't do much for me. Sometimes less is more, and at that point I would try to make it seamlessly loop instead of adding more content to it.

I see,
I made the song based off of rock-like instruments that some VOCALOID producers make. Sometimes the song was made busy on purpose to enforce the feeling of being overwhelmed. I do feel the same about the exact repetitiveness throughout the later parts of the song.

Thank you for the criticism.

The notes seem accurate, but the instruments used feel a bit off. For instance, the main melody track sounds a lot more ringy than the original.

Hayden, sometimes I edit my ORGs to sound a bit better instrument-wise.

However, I needed a break from Sonic music and decided to rearrange The main theme of the NAMCO arcade "classic" Metro-Cross. Will go back and fix the SBZ ORG soon. EDIT: Replaced almost every prior Sonic 1 ORG to sound a bit better. Check them a bit after shoving this underrated arcade game's music down your listen-holes.

Sounds not too bad. A bit different from the effect of the original, but this rendition still sounds good.

I listened back again to your new version of Scrap-Brain Zone, and I think it sounds a little bit better than before, but I can't remember vividly enough what all the others sounded like before, so I guess I can't judge if there's been much improvement there.

OK so i went ahead and tried making a completely custom song using orgmaker, and I came up with a song I call "Wham-Bom". It has a sort of jazzy feel, and has that sort of early DG music feel, with an AABB melody in a C Minor Blues scale.

Probably fits with the aesthetics of like a casino or some sort of sleazy bar.

Fell a bit behind on this thread, but here's my input.

@dg125 Not bad for an original composition. I wouldn't say it really fits the aesthetics of a sleazy bar, but presumably a casino. It has a consistent tone, and things blend together okay.

@Raymundo That's a pretty good transcription. While it doesn't sound exactly like the original, it does a really good job of capturing that same spirit, and definitely feels like a an "ORG Rendition" of Upper Brinstar.

Here's another original, more ambient sort of track. I call it Anberon.

Not bad, it has kind of a hallowed, foreshadowing tone to it. The first several seconds remind me of Courtroom Lounge from Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney.
I like what you're trying to do with the "zingyness" that you add in, and it sounds okay, but something about it doesn't quite fit in as seamlessly as it could. But overall, decent composition.

That's a pretty good transcription. The instruments and everything sound solid, and it all blends together pretty well. I feel as if it captures the spirit of the original quite well.
