Mmm, I get what you mean. I'm keen to have the vocals there but for them not to be distracting (and I also don't want them to be frustratingly distant :~D) - but it's difficult to judge being so aware of them.

 

I'm gonna play around with taking them out or bringing them up front in the next build. Thanks for the feedback!

Amazing stuff.

I can't really critique anything, well done!

 

You did the children's voices yourself? Are you some kind of kid prodigy? tongue.png

 

I must say your compositions remind me very much of the more upbeat tracks from Ragnarok Online, which is a good thing.

Haha yes i did the children's voices myself! :~D It was kind of an experiment which surprisingly turned out alright! I was spurred on by this song and, in hindsight, Yoshi's Story!

I've never played or heard stuff from Ragnarok Online but listening now - oh my god! Yeah, this is definitely the kind of music I love to write. I think I've found a new soundtrack to fall in love with!

Thanks Madhed!

You're welcome. :D

 

After listening to the RO soundtrack again I must say the similarities are not really that much, must have rather been the immediate feeling I got when listening to your stuff.

I think the soundtrack was what used to always bring me back to this game from time to time...

Mmm. I think it's mostly that they're using the kinda chords & progressions that I'm super fond of. Listening to Theme of Prontera! Purity of Your Smile as well! These are some slow jams. Hahaha, this is amazing. I love that this isn't too far off from an R. Kelly instrumental, and, in the context of an MMORPG... jammin' & grindin'! Listening to a few more tracks, it sounds like there was more than one composer on the team. I'm pretty into these tracks, gonna see which composer this was. Mmm... this white christmas track is sweet too.

Back on topic, I received a lovely performance of the main theme piano arrangement I wrote:

 

 

Working on more piano sheets. Any suggestions for which pieces to do arrangements of? I'm thinking March of the Green Lands, Frost Fandango and maybe Bonus Boogie.
