EDIT: Awesome, a Top 30 :3. Thanks for voting it up guys, and feel free to check out my other works like Plains Theme or Legend. This one's pretty outdated and old... :P

--

Here's one of my favourite songs from the soundtrack I made for an RPG called Eternal Quest. I tried to go for a town-like theme, although I think it's a bit too busy for a town theme. Still, I think it has that sound which makes you think of life in a small rural town.

This uses Virtual Guitarist 2 for the guitar, East/West Symphonic Orchestra Silver for the strings, piano and the tuba, the Unison soundfont for the flute, and random drum samples for the drums. This is supposed to play well after the game's menu theme (which I'll be submitting later on). I'm quite proud of this song, and it took me quite a while to do. Having said that, this is actually a pretty old song of mine. I think I've improved since then although I've always liked the atmosphere of this song.

Thanks a lot to Gravey, Blackhole12, Echo and Decibel for hearing this and providing some excellent criticism. I wished I could edit it to fix some of the problems they mentioned in the song (such as the cymbals sounding too tinny, the piano being too soft and the flute part being too short), but my FLP got corrupted. At the time when I was making the soundtrack, my old computer was dying. I literally had to write the music and then hope it sounds good with the rest of the song when I export it, because it lagged too much for me to hear it properly in FL Studio. Countless errors and glitches came up too (one of them disallowing me from exporting a song properly, forcing me to export it instrument by instrument), but I managed to finish all of the soundtrack.

Anyhow, enjoy this song. It's one of four songs which I made for the game, which I'll probably be submitting later on. Enjoy!

Very Good, but can be better.

I like your classical style mixed with movie and chinese feel toward the middle. The town (if you have seen this movie) has the same sound in their soundtrack as you do. It sound extremely professional as if in a recording studio and I respect that. I was just wondering what software are you using and is there a mac version. I also make music but I have no idea how to make it sound like a recoding studio. I really love what you do I have many of your songs. I am a cello player so I was thinks of adding either a better background bass and cello part or putting a violin solo. Either or both of those would make the song sound like an actual orchestra and give a more intensifying feel. Out of all of this I hope you take that your song is great but there is always room for improvement. I love your songs and keep going like this. I hope one day you and I can work together on something. Great job.

Also I am only giving this a ten because your original idea was great and was fun to listen to. Keep going.

P.S.: I am not sure whether this could help you because I don;t know what your were trying to go for, but I hope it helps.I know its for a game but I don;t know where in a game. Besides all of the bad comments, you did a great job. Great work you got here.

Hey, thanks for reviewing!

"I like your classical style mixed with movie and chinese feel toward the middle."

Yeah, now that you mentioned it, this does have somewhat of a Chinese sound to it, maybe because of the flute part. That was unintentional xD.

"The town (if you have seen this movie) has the same sound in their soundtrack as you do."

No I haven't seen it. I'm curious to hear the soundtrack now though.

"It sound extremely professional as if in a recording studio and I respect that."

Wow thanks. That's quite a compliment!

"I was just wondering what software are you using and is there a mac version. I also make music but I have no idea how to make it sound like a recoding studio."

I use FL Studio 10. Unfortunately FL Studio isn't available on a Mac, but it's not really a problem, because FL Studio (and any other DAW for that matter) is just a bridge between your mind and your music. There are plenty of other programs out there like Cubase, Reason and Logic which are all available on a Mac.

What makes that 'studio sound' would probably be the VST I used, which is East/West Symphonic Orchestra. It's expensive, but really worth it, because of its really high-quality orchestral instruments.

Hope that helped ^^.

"I really love what you do I have many of your songs."

Awesome, thanks! Really great to know there are people who enjoy my music.

"I am a cello player so I was thinks of adding either a better background bass and cello part or putting a violin solo. Either or both of those would make the song sound like an actual orchestra and give a more intensifying feel."

You know, that's actually a really wonderful idea. Unfortunately I don't have the project file anymore because it got corrupted though...

"Out of all of this I hope you take that your song is great but there is always room for improvement."

Yep, I agree, this has quite a bit of room for improving. It's an old song and looking back I'm spotting loads of things which I could've done better in.

"I love your songs and keep going like this. I hope one day you and I can work together on something. Great job."

Thanks!

"Also I am only giving this a ten because your original idea was great and was fun to listen to. Keep going."

Will do!

Yeah it helped! I appreciate the supportive feedback a lot! Thanks again.

Pretty Awsome.

In my personal opinion I agree with this for beeing in a Town scematic, since this reminds me of the Medieval Era, especially when the flute comes in, it's awsome.

I really hope you make more of this and keep this way.


Step responds:

Finally someone who finds this fitting for a Town theme :P.

Thanks for reviewing! I enjoy writing this style so if you want to see similar songs of mine, check out Legend, Journey to the Afterlife or Land of Kings. They're better than this one anyway because it's really old xP.

Thanks again!

Holy Shit... :)

Its actually prety damn awsome, but the cynic in me really wants some louder drums, their almost drowned out... and probably less reverb on them?
But thats just nitpicking on such a great song :D

Cheers :)


Step responds:

Thanks! This isn't one of my best actually - in fact it's really old. That might explain the little quirks like too much reverb on the drums. I wish I could edit this song but I lost the project file :(.

Glad you enjoyed it, and thanks again!

Nice

I'd almost say its closer to a world theme. Gotta do some exploring to this theme.


Step responds:

Yeah, there are a few different opinions on what the theme of this song is. Still, glad you like it!
