Are sound modules still relevant?

06 February 2014 - 12:59 PM

So, I've recently found an interest in a more 'classic' sound to video game music. I was wondering if things like sound modules were still relevant in the industry; I'd like to invest in something like an old Roland SC-88 to achieve a sort of lo-fi, yet modern sound to some of my music, but I don't want to do it if they aren't used much anymore.

 

Does anybody have experience in sound/ MIDI modules, and use thereof in this day and age? Any advice is appreciated:)


Audio reImagined - Don't Starve (Sampler)

21 January 2014 - 01:36 PM

Hello, about a week ago (well, three days) I created my first video to a series I am doing on Youtube and my website called 'Audio reImagined'. What I do is grab footage from various games, cut all of the audio from the playback, and just compose something new for that particular game. My overall goal with this is to learn and experiment with a bunch of new styles, and hopefully gain a few bigger projects under my belt in the process. I'm trying to release something weekly.

 

The first game I've done is Don't Starve. I just created a sampler reel since it is my first video (The rest of my videos will be just a full single, downloadable track for a specific scenario such as a town theme, or dungeon theme, etc.), I wanted to really pack it in with content. The scenes I've chosen from Don't Starve are the title, grasslands, and night themes. I really sort of went along with the quirky, Tim Burton-esque vibe of the game in its entirety. I also wanted to create something a bit less, uhh, static if that makes sense; I used a lot of tempo changes and variation here.

 

Anyways, enough rambling.

The link to the video on youtube is here

or you can use my website: danielfalk.net (Just scroll down on the first page).

 

What I'm looking for is mainly advance on the post production of the project and comments on the overall quality; does all of the music & sounds fit, is it mixed/mastered well, does everything feel alive, etc. Anything is greatly appreciated. I want to grow as much as I can, and I've been working extremely hard to save up & acquire all of the sounds & instruments I used for this composition.

 

 

 


Weary Travellers [New Composition]

27 July 2013 - 12:25 PM

Hello, I've been working on a few different projects and I just finished a new piece that I'm fairly satisfied with, you can find it here. I'd like some feedback on it; comments/criticism, etc. I've named it 'Weary Travellers', as this song has sort of been an outlet for some of the stresses I've been dealing with lately. I still need to master it, however, it doesn't sound too shabby in its current form. I think it'd make a good title theme or something along those lines.

 

I'm new to the forums, so I'd also like to say hello and introduce myself to everybody as well. The reason I'm coming here is because the forums that I used to post all my tracks to for feedback has become over-ridden with self-advertisers and I'm sick of it. I can't get a word of critique out of them anymore, and because I'm self-taught, this is really the only way I can grow as an artist.

 

Regardless, let me know what you guys think. :)
