Great from start to finish. Excellent composition and production, provides enough variation to keep it interesting, and it expresses the feeling you wanted to express perfectly.
As a longtime Harvest Moon, my first impression was that this would be a great match for the game, but it really works for just about any game featuring peaceful towns.
Bethesda called, they want their composer back.
Then what are you waiting for? You'd better be on your way there before you're late :3.
Thanks for reviewing!
I was going to rant about how the song has a motif, not an alliteration, but then I realized what the guy below me meant. Dammit, I should read summaries more often.
Anyway, lovely tune. Great representation of asian music and excellent use of instruments.
Although I don't blame you. My summaries aren't exactly... summaries >.>.
Thanks again for the review!
No crit for you. Gratz on the weekly top 5.
Keep up, S.
Sure thing, G!
Thanks for reviewing, man :3.
Very good ambient.
My only suggestion would be lowering the volume of the rain just a little bit and adding a little bit more reverb to it.
Other than that, it's very good. Great atmosphere all-around.
Keep it up.
Yeah maybe i'll tweak it later
Your stuff continues to impress me, sir.
This version sounds better and it's not even close. You seem very comfortable making VG music.
I love the scales you used. Keep it up.
Invest in a good drums software and learn a little about mixing and mastering tracks, you need it. It'd be a terrible to waste your guitar skills and creativity because of subpar sound quality.
I really like this. Good luck in the NGADM.
thanks man, yeah i know dood...if i had some real equipment, i could seriously fuck shit up. but fuck it man
Sounds like FL studio but I could be wrong.
The feeling is definitely there, I can tell what you were trying to do. I like the chords you used.
Your samples could be better, specially your piano samples. Lower the volume of your clap, it's overpowering. Boost your mid-to-higher ranges a little bit so it doesn't feel like they're drown out by the pads, unless you were going for that.
Your transitions are fine, but try making a couple more drum beats. The piano feels a little bit mechanical. Play with the velocities to make them flow more naturally.
Just some C+C. Take my advice anyway you like. Keep it up :)
Piano volume too low at the beginning, hi hats a bit too loud, and crash samples are just...hideous. Guitar is effective and a real one would have been bitching.
All those issues aside, I love this song. Doesn't sound your a typical war theme, but it works as an action theme. The string staccatos (detaches?) are rather subtle but they work. I absolutely love the strings break at around 0:55. The piano lead is wonderful.
I'm curious. What headphones are you using? You seem to have a problem with mixing in your songs which could be because of your equipment.
And as usual, I can't write a super long review, but this'll do :3
Yay I can break up your review.
"Piano volume too low at the beginning"
"hi hats a bit too loud"
"and crash samples are just...hideous."
Noted :D. Yeah my volume levels need work and the crash samples will be changed.
"Guitar is effective and a real one would have been bitching."
Yep, I've just asked Pure-Metal-UTA, but I don't know if it's OK with him.
"All those issues aside, I love this song. Doesn't sound your a typical war theme, but it works as an action theme."
Glad you like it. Maybe when I make it longer I can give it a more 'war'-ish feel.
"The string staccatos (detaches?) are rather subtle but they work."
I might give them a bit more importance in the song, not too sure, but I want to keep them purely in the background nonetheless so I won't go crazy with the volume. At least I hope I won't.
And the strings are staccatos, free samples too :D.
"I absolutely love the strings break at around 0:55."
Yay, glad you like it :3.
"The piano lead is wonderful."
You gotta love Steinway B.
"I'm curious. What headphones are you using? You seem to have a problem with mixing in your songs which could be because of your equipment."
Nah, I'm just using speakers. My subwoofer isn't that good though but I'm pretty sure that the bad mixing in my songs is usually me being lazy.
"And as usual, I can't write a super long review, but this'll do :3"
Yep. Thanks for the great review!
