  1. Thanks for taking the time for listening!   At first I was a little surprised with your comment about the pizzicatos in the first part, but after reading your tutorial, I understand what you meant. I recorded nearly everything of the piece using a keyboard so the velocity is unique for every part and note. Maybe when recording I should have done a little bit more emphasis.   About the second point, also surprises me, I thought there were dynamics. I didnt want to put a limiter or compressor to keep the dynamic range as it was. Which parts would you do a little bit quiter or louder?   I agree with you that the production is what could be much better, but unfortunately I still have a lot to learn and somehow I need to develop this instinct for production and mixing and editing much more   I'm happy that you liked it!
  2. Hello!   We have made the OST for a game that is going to be very soon in google play. It's a math game were you have to solve mini puzzles to get to the end of a labyrynth.   I would really like to have your opinion of it and also I hope you enjoy it!   https://soundcloud.com/estudioevergreen/math-maze-ost
  3. Thanks for the comments!   About the zombies, this was the song for the "city" so you are not supposed to be there a lot, lot of time, but anyways I will check it.   About the woodwind, you are totally right. It should sound more natural, I will probably try to resample this in the near future. With more human things. I will post it again when I have it ready ;)
  4. Hello!   I'm doing music for free for other people's game and I'm always looking to improve. I would like to have some feedback in a few themes if possible:   This is a chiptune oriented track for a very simple and funny zombie game. Maybe too simple but it seems it works. What's your opinion?   https://soundcloud.com/estudioevergreen/01-estudio-evergreen-safe-in?in=estudioevergreen/sets/legenda-scintila-ost-2012   And now something more orchestral for a game that was the final thesis of a friend. The requisites was to be something funny and with a battle spirit all together:   https://soundcloud.com/estudioevergreen/03-sion-tower-fase-1?in=estudioevergreen/sets/sion-tower-bso-2011     I'm looking forward to your opinion . Thanks in advance   Best Regards Estudio Evergreen.
