In Topic: Portfolio Showcase Feedback

31 January 2015 - 04:49 AM

Good mix of genres and styles, and some really nice tracks. The Japanese style track is really convincing, although I feel the guitar on the fourth track could use some more punch and impact. I think you might be a bit heavy-handed on the reverb as well, particularly in the 2nd last track. Overall though the portfolio is really decent, and you seem like you've got a good grasp on quite a lot of genres.


In terms of pacing, from what I have read around this forum 5 minutes could be a bit too long - you might want to consider shortening the segments to their most compelling moments and shrink the demo down to about 2-3 minutes total.

Currently watching the first episode - really clear advice and very solid music.


Thanks for sharing!

In Topic: Tips for rescoring

07 December 2014 - 10:49 AM

Another option is some games such as Left 4 Dead 2 have all of their sound folders open and can be replaced with any other .wav file (providing it's the same length), theoretically allowing you to rescore the entire game. It's great because you can compose a piece, and then experience it in game as an interactive piece of music.


Following that you can release your score to the Steam Workshop as a mod for people to download. 


If anyone knows any other games with replaceable sound files I'd love to know!

Thanks Ravyne, that's actually a really good point, there's not much use paying out for a PC now if I plan to replace it soon.


I've actually done some looking into Mac Mini's - and by the time I've bought a monitor and expanded the RAM it comes pretty close in price to an iMac, and not as highly specced. I think prices may be steeper here in the UK sad.png


I think I may just hold out and buy an iMac (possibly refurbished)
