Here's the original posted on the GDrive link in the OP: https://picosong.com/wQXsr
This one has an alternative flute that's more realistic but with relatively worse timbre: https://picosong.com/wQVpn
This one has a Shakuhachi, which I find is thematically appropiate but might be too different from the original: https://picosong.com/wQjrZ

You can discard 12.3 entirely, the shakuhachi ends up taking a complete background the the rest of the track, easily overshadowed by the drums and it lacks the oomph I think you found in the other 2 flutes.
While the first instrument (8.3) has a bit of a rustic feel to it, it doesn't have the inherent breathiness of actual flute playing present in 10.3. I think you'd find more success in the instrument you used for 8.3 in either "The Great Warrior" or in Red's theme itself. If you can find a way to get a bit more "punch" (there's a musical term for this, I think its attack?) from the 10.3 flute, I think that's the way to go. Alternately, you could try layering the shakuhachi in tandem with the 10.3 flute, as a compromise, see what that sounds like and if you like it. As of now, my vote goes to 10.3, but maybe turn the background guitar down just a bit.
Cheers, loving it so far and anxiously awaiting more! Completely chucked out all the other music revamps in favor of yours  :-D

The last one is my favourite. For the sound replacement we can edit the sound with Cosmo or Ultrasound, but DLPB has made a full audio replacer which will replace any current attempts.

The last one was a bit of a surprise initially, but is the one I like the most.

Update!

Updated:
Barrett's Theme
Anxious Heart (apologies for the horrible sounding harp before)
Hurry!
Mako Reactor
Those Who Keep Fighting (added some power chords 8))
Canyon of the Falling Stars

New:
Shin-Ra's Full Scale Offensive
Main Theme of Final Fantasy VII (my favourite one so far)
Main Theme's shorter version: Synced to The Reunion R05C's version of the scene since the original cuts off the song at the end and plays Mako Reactor instead.
While Travelling
Farm Boy
Electric de Chocobo
Cinco de Chocobo
Pursue the Man in a Black Cloak!

Also, thanks for the feedback on Cosmo Canyon. I decided to use the Shakuhachi one but I tweaked it a little so that it sounds a little stronger on the mix.

The last one is my favourite. For the sound replacement we can edit the sound with Cosmo or Ultrasound, but DLPB has made a full audio replacer which will replace any current attempts.
Looking forward to R06!

The syncing issue has already been fixed for R06 as well as the bug that leads to Mako being played.  You should make your "shorter" version longer again for R06. Part of the main theme is repeated a few times if you compare to the PSX game itself - so it's not good enough to simply shorten.

I will update R06's version so you can see for yourself.

As long as it's still a separate track then there's no problem from my end (cuz not only does it loop in the middle, the composition actually changes); I'll resync tb.ogg to R06 as soon as it's available.

Since the opening song is within the FMV and not played from an OGG file, I had to remake the audio with sound effects and then remux the avi file (I used the Steam FMV, the video is not reencoded). I think it turned out pretty good. However, if someone managed to get the opening and ending2 FMVs without the music and with the sfx, please let me know, that would really help me out.
Turns out I only had to rip the FMVs from the PSX version to get the audio without music encoded in it... wow I feel dumb, I spent a while redoing the sound effects... Well the OP's link to the opening.avi is updated with better quality audio!

... Also I added Aerith's Theme and Hear the Voice of the Planet which sound really cool, check them out!

It is a separate track - Here's how it should sound:

I checked PSX version out in game and created this one from it.

Yeah, mine sounds just like that one only mine is 6 seconds shorter (because the scene in R05C's version is very slightly faster than the PSX one). Again, if the speed of the scene changes in R06 I'll resync my track so that it's exactly the same length as the one you just posted.

Gold Saucer

You beautiful bastard

Edit: Came back to say what a terrific job you did with Aerith's theme. I'm not even that big of a fan of it but WOW.

Thank you! Aerith's Theme is one of my favourites so far.


...also I have GOLD SAUCER stuck in my head now... I had to listen to it like 100 times while mixing it...

Update!... a smaller update than usual though, these ones took me a while.

Updated:
Those Who Fight Further/Fight On/Still More Fighting has been completely remixed; it sounds way better now.

New:
The Planet's Chosen One - all three versions (cintro, cephiros and nointro)

For the planets chosen one I would prefer a more natural chorus like in that version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVRALMFk-Ko&list=RD4F5gZqiPIso&index=24
Though, it sounds already pretty good. I can hear that your skills develops with every new track.

Thank you!

You mean like this?
I chose not to do it like that because I felt it didn't really fit; it's a weird track, the original doesn't even use orchestral strings, it uses electric guitars. However the only difference between the two is that the chorus (which is not made of samples btw, it's 15 layers of my own voice 8-)) is turned down, but it's still there.

I'm gonna leave this alternative version here in case anyone wants it, it's looped and everything.

I decided to try something out with The Planet's Chosen One. I'm really happy with the results (my throat hurts though, haha).
cephiros: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1bQij4oZMIbDk6vP4-wXFnxlwt2bKKiuw
nointro: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Pc_vri2ukrMmDcg7HtoN4yN8HRPA4VeM

Again these are looped OGG files ready to be used in-game if anyone wants them.

Edit
: Added the "nointro" version of the track

Sexy! Now FFVII meets FFVIII!

Edit:
I'll make an iro mod of it for 7H. I'll upload it with my iro packer so you can easily add new files or make options for alternated versions.

@Bynyl
I made the nointro versions of the two alternate versions of cephiros.

@everyone
This comes with the iro packer bat, so you need to run it and built the iro if you want to use it for 7H (well actually you could grab the folder in unpacked and copy it in your 7H mod folder). The mod has a config if you want to choose different versions of a song.

That's awesome! Thanks!

I added the packed IRO file with some corrections (sped up versions of nointro and the opening FMV with my music) to the OP. I'll be updating it along with the GDrive folder.

These sound awesome! Very close to the original, but with much better quality and instruments. I'm about to start my FIRST playthrough of FF VII in anticipation for the remake and it'll be with your music. Thanks for that!

Greatly appreciated! Hopefully the switch to the original OST for the songs I haven't finished is not too jarring :P .

I just realized I forgot to upload the "nointro" version of that. You can download it HERE. I also put the link in the post you quoted; i'll add these to the OP later.

Again, thanks! And yeah, it was worth it.  ;D

Another beautiful track!

May I suggest a variety of it. I replaced this song a while back with this one https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uj_KUKzGY08. My suggestion is to give the original track also an intro maybe mixture of Sephiroth's theme and Janova's theme. I really like the heavy bells at the beginning of the song from within temptation.

Again, great work and I hope to hear more songs from you.
