Zyroplex: Volume 1 (Version 1.0)
22 pad songs / 57 charts; 6 keyboard songs / 8 charts

Links a la mediafire:
--> Pad charts (videos not included) 83.17 MB
--> Videos for pad charts that have videos 85.37 MB

--> Keyboard charts (including one video) 39.49 MB

-----
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:
Lots of fun songs. I said so myself, and I know this pack best. Afterall, I wrote it.
Good song choices, good difficulty range, good technique, good use of hands (lol)

Pad charts are quality-tested and approved for maximum enjoyment! Keyboard charts are not. I dunno, I like 'em, and maybe you will, too. They were each written for a particular gimmick based on the song, so if you like that sort of thing, give 'em a try. (All KB charts are spread-based)


Underlined songs have a video! Download the videos for pad charts above for enhanced pleasure.
Bold songs are recommendations! I really, really, really like these songs (or someone I know has told me so). YourMileageMayVary, duh.

Only thing I'd like to mention is that you are correct that the pattern in the middle of Firecloud is based around 16ths... the accents DO actually go Quarter Note, 16th Note, 16th Note (e.g., starting on the quarter note, the 2nd note is 3/16ths afterwards, and the 3rd note is 2/16ths after that one)... ... it is very, very close to 12ths, I'll give you that. In terms of PA, it doesnt make a difference, but in terms of MA, I find myself getting more Perfects when they're 12ths instead of 16ths. As for the sync on the file, I think it got a little off w/ the stops... I changed the 1st stop to 1.18, 2nd one to 1.79, 3rd one to 1.48... these seemed to work really well.

Other than that, files look good, no awkward patterns/severe sync issues that I saw on any of the Challenge charts at least

In Firecloud, you're probably right about the stops. I cut and cropped the music, so it might be off by a little bit. Still, it sounds fine to me, so I'm going to wait for a second opinion.
I kept the 12ths because they're easier for me to hit. (Fortunately, "Quantize 16ths" will fix the rhythm.) I'll fix the rhythm when I get around to updating the middle stream--only changing the rhythm doesn't seem like enough "new material" in a chart.

Can you check Caramelldansen for me? It was a pain to sync, and the slow part a little less than 50% bpm. (I'm surprised it isn't the precisely the same tempo.) It sounds good to me, but I'd like another ear on it.

How do you like the artwork? I threw it together a la Google, because some image is better than no image. Right? Right.

A question on preference: Should I put all my songs into the same .zip, or leave them separate?

1) That's fine.

2) Usually when syncing becomes an issue and weird stuff happens like your slowdown example, it means the original BPM probably wasnt correct... in this case, it was still a little too fast. Original BPM should be 164.20, and the slowdown can then be 82.10. Some helpful advice: watch/play your steps on .5x rate every now and then when stepping to see if your patterns are drifting. You won't necessarily be hitting everything Fantastic because its slower, but you should be able to see noticable differences you wouldn't see well when its at normal speed. When I played your file on .5x you can actually see that, a few measures before the slowdown, your notes are definitely passing the sensors too soon, and so to get it back on track your slowdown BPM was less than 50% of your old original.

3) Artwork is fine.

4) Same .zip, but that's just me

Updated the old songs.
Also, added a new one. You're gonna LOVE it. It's gonna blow your speakers up.
I really, really hate that song, and the grandest insult I can give is to make a joke chart. Cheers!

Happy new year!
I've been busy over winter break polishing my newest charts to publishable quality. OP has been updated.

What's new?
* 12 new songs (minus 1 old one) for a total of 22 songs, and nearly all of them have several difficulties.
* 6 keyboard charts (mostly "FFR difficulty 7"s)
* Songnotes/information moved into a Readme file.
* Backgrounds and banner art for every song
* Most old charts have been tweaked and/or re-synched. It's best to replace your old Zyro folder with the new one.
* Separate link for videos 'cause I know you all play with the background turned off anyway.

I'm intending this to be the final version (new songs will be a separate "pack" for sake of organization, if I ever have that many again). If I feel the need to write more charts, change artwork, or tweak anything regarding "Volume 1" songs, I'll update it and call it version 1.1

This is an excellent pack. You should totally play these songs. 4srs
