I think I'm going to wait about 6 months or so to let any bugs be ironed out, but if you do get it soon let me know how the transition is.

In Topic: My first soundtrack to a game (Still WIP)

Fun little game, I can see myself returning to this when I need just a little something to take my mind off of things.  Great job with the music.  Can't help you out much with mastering, as that's something I'm in the process of learning more about myself.

In Topic: Learning how to compose (better)

There is one very important part of learning to compose better that hasn't been mentioned here yet - ear training/aural skills. By practicing this skill you will be able to recognize the elements of music much better, whether in a piece of music you're listening to or an original composition in your head. The notes will begin to come easily to you, so when your thinking of a melodic line, harmony, texture, etc., you won't have to spend time figuring exactly what notes are. Instead, you will be able to write them down right away as naturally as you would for writing text. There is software intended to help develop this skill, such as GNU Solfege and the exercises on http://www.teoria.com


That's great advise.  We used a program called MacGamut in my theory class (though we had a different name for it).  But a great free resource out there is musictheory.net.  There's some great exercises in both basic theory and aural skills.
