    My apologies for being rude and all of that. I've been going through some heavy stuff lately, and I overreacted. I hope that you will forgive me.

    Oh, I don't know music theory? Okay, so that's why I use functional harmony, contrapuntal movement, and various other techniques because I don't know what they are. Mhm. No percussion in most of them, true, I didn't feel that some of them needed percussion at this stage. You're welcome to the opinion that the melodies aren't interesting, I can see how you might think that. I didn't use many leaps or such. No harmonies? Really? No counter melodies, this is true. No layer of melodies? So, I have one melody at all times and nothing else is going on ever, correct? You really like that word, don't you? "No". To quote Inigo Montoya, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means". Again, no basslines? Did you even listen? Points 2 and 3 I will concede, I have a terribly weak library at the moment. See, your "criticism" is basically just saying you hate it. Which is fine, but I would appreciate some reasons as to why you dislike it. Instead of offering advice, you just say a bunch of things that you think I did wrong. I did appreciate the one bit of advice you gave, even though you did it in a condescending way. Perhaps if you could offer more of such advice, I'd be more likely to value your input.

    No need to be sorry. It's not like I made this thread to be praised. Criticism is what makes people better. Yeah, I've been working with adding variety in chords and modulations and the like lately. And Emblem, when you say "vanilla", what exactly do you mean?
  4. Out of curiousity, what was this made for? A specific game, or just something you came up with?
  5. Hey Azul, good stuff! I'm in the same boat as you with the whole rock backgroung thing. I feel like there is a bit of a lack of a main melody, but that might just be personal tastes. I like the choice of instruments. I'm sort of getting a melancholic feel, with a bit of hope. As if something bad has just happened, but there's a ray of hope shining through. Not sure if that's what you were going for, but that's what I envisioned. As for mixing, I think you did a pretty good job. All in all, it's a good starting place, and I look forward to seeing what you do with it and future pieces. Keep it up!

    Thanks for the reply, Julz! Yeah, I tend to always forget about EQ-ing when working with VSTs, not really sure why. Do you have any suggestions for better plug-ins? Also, glad you like my stuff.

    Hey guys, I just recently started making music outside of the rock realm, and was wondering what you thought of it. Some of these are WIP, but I think the main idea gets across well enough. http://soundcloud.com/shea-boman As for the specifics, I didn't really write these for any specific game. I was hoping I could get some constructive criticism for improving it. I realize that this seems extremely vague, and I apologize for that. But any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
