Hello newgrounds, what's up. :D

This is my newest classical song, hot off of FL Studio. The writing for it took a few days, as I did it all with just simple midi instruments. However, after being transposed over to Edirol orchestra within FL Studio, this came out. The tempo was actually a lot slower to start (it was at 160 BPM) and is now at 200 BPM.

The pitch has also been raised a little from the original song, it was supposed to be in the key of A Minor but is now at (i believe) B Flat minor.

A big thanks to the user Gravey here on newgrounds (www.gravey.newgrounds.co m) (remove space) for writing the piano solo you hear towards the end. I asked him to write a solo for me a long time ago, and the song it was originally intended for became a dead loop. I made a few modifications to it to fit this song, but it works very well, and props to him!

Enjoy, and rate fairly! Leave a comment too!

Ha!

This is great man, albeit the piano is way to fast to be realistic, its still really cool.

The orchestral stuff sounds wonderful to be completely honest. You created a really good mix that has a rich full sound, and that is important. Everything really blends well and adds to the ensemble, so well done with the overall mix.

The piano itself is frantic, almost too fast to be quite honest. If you were going with realistic you totally missed that, but if you are going for jaw dropping you probably hit it because it sounds great. It's just way to fast to be realistic, mainly where you are hitting the same note in succession. There just is no piano in the world that has that fast of action in order to allow you to hit the same note over and over that quickly. But that being said, I really like it anyways. ;-)

My one issue is the compression/limiter put on the overall mix. It creates a funky mixing issue with the reverse cymbal. If you listen closely it throws off the mix slightly, basically you slightly overcompressed it and when the reverse cymbal rises it cause the rest of the ensemble to sort of recede in the mix. I would raise the ceiling on your limiter/compressor a little bit to help with that.

All in all though I really like this. Could be expanded easily if you ask me into a full length song. It definitely has a professional quality to it and I would like to hear more of this from you for sure.

5/5 and 10/10 overall. Really good work here my friend.

Smooth.

First off may i say, amazing orchestrals! I approve!

Very nice percussion.
And that solo, that solo was just moving.

Although, i think you should have left it at a lower pitch, im not one to completely judge creativity.

And its doesn't quite loop well, so im suggestion you make this into a song.
Nice call on the tempo. any slower, and i don't think it would have its movement with itself.

over all a very nice track.

5/5 and 9/10

Yeah, I just noticed now that Newgrounds sorta cuts out the end, and it loops pretty terribly. I'll fix that somtime. Thanks for the review, it is much appreciated! :D
