In Topic: Feedback required

28 December 2012 - 10:48 AM

It sounds really Final Fantasy-esque to me, which is cool. I think you could bring out the drums more, as they are the most likely aspect of the piece to give it an excited battle feel, and at the moment the snare and toms are pretty hidden away - perhaps again because they clash (frequency wise) with the other instruments. In addition to the brands stated earlier, Spectrasonics do some damn good soundsets, but as with any VST you should do a lot of research before you part with any money in case it's not exactly what you want or expect <img data-cke-saved-src="http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" src="http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" class="bbc_emoticon" title=":)" />

Thanks guys, I'll have another look at some of the tom bits for the final cut <img data-cke-saved-src="http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" src="http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png" class="bbc_emoticon" title=":)" />

In Topic: Sonata In Seven

Thanks for the feedback all! Dakota, those runs sound abysmal I'm aware but I'm hoping it's the fault of Sibelius! I'll have to wait until I can find a pianist good enough to play it to find out. I do play piano myself but I can only do Mvt 2 and the easier bits of the other ones, although I'll do some proper practice on it at some point.
As for the transitions, thanks for the feedback! The sudden changes was what I was going for but perhaps looking at your feedback I went a bit over the top. The third movement particularly is meant to be pretty abrupt, but the first movement could do with some looking at too. Thanks very much for your comments Posted Image It was the first solo piano work I've ever written so I'll be sure to keep this in mind next time. Thanks again for taking the time to listen to it all

edit: forgot to say, there are lots and lots of dynamic contrasts but again the MIDI has wrecked it :(

In Topic: Sonata In Seven

That's probably because it's in classical Sonata form which deals with subject groups instead of "motifs" :) There are 2 main subject groups, in F sharp minor and E major respectively and an introduction in F#, Thanks though that's interesting and not something I'd considered

In Topic: Help with Recording Instruments

A good tip I also find for recording acoustically is to cut off everything below about 60hZ (give or take, depending on the instrument) this gets rid of a lot of horrid background rumble and makes the mic recording sound clearer
