UPDATE 12-28-09: I've uploaded an updated version that has been remastered. Thanks for the suggestions guys!

This is an extended version of the music for Krin's futuristic RTS Colony, with new material added throughout. This develops the Capitalist theme. It was hard picking a category to put it up on Newgrounds, since it's a hybrid of orchestral and rock. Hopefully I found the right place!

As always I greatly appreciate comments. I will make sure to read each and every comment posted, and I'll do my best to respond to reviews when I can! Visit my userpage and website for more music and news!

Great tune

Something in this song makes me cry idk y...
Love the tune u got. U gotta put this in the game man


DavidOrr responds:

Thanks, glad you enjoyed it! A lot of this music is actually in the game- but it's sliced up so it can be played in any order. The theme is the theme for the Capitalists, so if you play as them you'll hear it!

Classic!

At my end All is perfectly fine. I listened to it while my eyes are closed; Very good transitions in all parts. No dull moments. It never fails to keep my head moving. I must say, you know your stuff very well!

There is only one thing that caught my attention. I can hear the combinations of an Orchestral and Classic rock. However, I can't find where the electronica is. Well I know it is there, but it doesn't surfaced enough for me to find it in one hearing. Try to make the electronica more obvious so one doesn't have hard time to find it or else it will just be a combination of Orchestral and Rock. That will be against your intention of making it a hybrid of orchestral, rock, and electronica.

Very good track Over all! I am giving it a perfect score! 10/10 5/5
Keep up the good work!

Perhaps electronica isn't the best description, as what I was referencing was mainly the use of synths. I'll go and edit the description to avoid confusion, Thanks for the review!

Great!

Veery good composition, really proffesionally sounding! I would change some things, though, not int the music, but rather in mixing. Guitar solo starting 1:30 is a little too quiet for me and it sounds a bit flat, but that can be because of MP3 compression, as well as because of VST. What I particularly like is killswitch-style guitar, and string ensamble, they make this tune EPIC. Keep up the good work!

The Mp3 does lower the sound quality (particularly the highs), but that's no excuse for a flat mix. Changes are in the works, thanks for the review!

Superb

The piano notes seem to go a bit too high - pianos almost never sound good played that high. Maybe bring it down an octave? The piano sample in general doesn't sound particularly impressive, actually.

Of course, that's nothing compared to the awesomeness of the rest of the track. I can't even keep track of the plethora of chords you throw the melody around in. The song is extremely varied and yet is able to sustain a theme throughout the entire piece, and does a superb job blending rock and orchestral genres, although I didn't hear much electronica in there (but then almost everything these days has elements of that).

The piece seems a bit quiet, but the volume is good considering its background music for a game. I still think some of the instruments could use a bit better EQ work for that professional feel. The instruments just don't sound crisp enough, and some more powerful higher frequencies would help out there a lot. I keep thinking the guitar should be a little stronger too, but I'm not sure about that.

The guitar solo near the beginning bothers me because its very empty sounding. There's just the guitar and some drums and a few quiet strings. The soundscape is really lost there and it feels unfinished.

Everything else, of course, is crazy good.

8/10
5/5


DavidOrr responds:

Awesome review! Lots of great ideas in there, I'm going to go work on some of those things and probably re-upload. Unfortunately the piano sounds I have aren't great, but I have some awesome ones in the mail as I type this, so I'll redo that once those get here, which should make a big difference. EQing has always been something I'm trying to improve, since that can really make or break a piece.

Thanks for the review, I'll be returning the favor soon!

very nice!

3:15 is my favorite part by far. I love the strings + modulation! Definitely a climactic part and I can see how it could fit in real well in Colony. Love the ending, too...was not expecting it to end that way. Always good to have a surprise. The dark electronic sounds fit in nicely, too. Which guitar sounds do you use again?


DavidOrr responds:

Hey Jeff! I used the East West Quantum Leap Ministry of Rock sounds for this. The bass, rhythm guitar, lead guitar, and drum fills are all from that. Thanks for stopping by!
