Cool game. I wish it was longer.
Hell yeah! This is the best track I've heard on newgrounds in a while. You really capture some emotion here, something I'm struggling to do. Did you play it yourself or program the MIDI? I see what you mean with the mix, but I wouldn't worry too much about it. Only thing you might want to look at is a tone or dissonance that resonates really loud around 2:02. Can't quite put my finger on what it is though. Anyway, you did a fine job with the composition however in the chord changes after 3:00 it's not as solid as the rest of the song. It seems like you somehow put a little less effort in there. Good job over all! I've gotta check out those samples.
Thanks! The piano was played into MIDI and then pretty much untouched. The violin/cello were played in as well and then fine tuned (dynamics/vibrato)in MIDI to make them more expressive and realistic.
I agree about the part after 3:00. I wrote the entire piano part first and then put strings over it. I honestly was never entirely confident about what to do with the strings at that point.
Thanks for the review!
Awesome track mate. What did you use to make the metal-y sounds?
I use some free soundfonts and a few libraries from Eastwest/Quantum Leap.
I randomly narrated everything I was doing and thinking when I listened to this track. Everything I said sounded like an epic dialog from some movie! Outstanding work!
really? Haha that's so cool xD
