I got some inspiration from a battle theme of Final Fantasy (I can't say which one exactly). Made with LMMS using ZynAddSubFX and the Chorium Rev. A Soundfont.

This is AWESUUUUUUUUM , with that crappy thing gone. Let us get with the small review. No doubt this is Final Fantasy-ish in every way but with your retouch of it to make it original makes it seemingly as if I have been absorbed into a newer FF universe , hoping to assists the protagonists to save their world ! Also a half extra star for you since this is awesome . :3

First things first is that snare is amazing. It's the first thing that caught my attention when I listened to the track and it really gives the track a LOT of energy. In fact I liked it so much that I wrote down in my list of musical ideas "write a song with a huge snare." :)

I also really like the use of the electric guitar as texture to bring more energy to the track. I felt like maybe the percussion could have been a bit more varied. You know what would be really awesome? What if in that final coda section starting at 2:00 with the double snare hit you used a similar but more driving snare to really indicate an "end of the world" sort of idea.

The mixing of the percussion is overall really well done.

The melodies are generally really good in dat RPG epic battle sense. I really really love that section that kicks off at :25 that makes use of that RPG III chord idea in such a fun way. However there's a mixing problem here, where the chords and the melody are the same loudness. I think that the instrument carrying the melody should really be front and center, with only the beats louder than it. As is, it sits kind of quietly in the mix and I think that a lot of people could miss it. This problem carries throughout almost the entire track, and it's actually probably my biggest critique.

My other suggestion is that there is no bassline to speak of. I hear almost nothing in the low end of this song at all (alright, it sounds like there's something soft down there, but it's not really filling out the bass as well as it could). In the Chrono Trigger battle music, there's this really sweet bassline that goes through the whole track and really makes the whole thing awesome. Check it out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeNkqEOQ15I&noredirect=1

I'm not saying that you *have* to do something like that, but it would make the track pretty neat :)

Final suggestion is about the melodies (again). While they are good, they aren't really driving the song forward, you know? Some melodies really drive the song forward, but the melodies in this track feel a little "slow" (except at :25). (This is a really hard thing to describe.) I think if you were to bump around the rhythms so that the notes don't always start on beat, you could get some more driving melodies.

I really like the chords at 1:25 that move quickly from one to the other. That's something I don't hear too often, and it works well.

Overall, this track is really good. Totally sounds straight out of some RPG soundtrack, and it uses a lot of the RPG musical idioms really nicely. I think you did a great job here and hopefully my tips can help you make it even better :D

Wow, that's quite a lot. Don't know where to start. But I also don't want to reply just with a little 'thanks'. Indeed I now recognize things you mentioned that I didn't notice before. The mastering can be a problem in LMMS since you also don't have much analyzing stuff available there if you don't add some VSTs. But to be honest, I didn't do much mastering here, just adjusting the volume levels to avoid nasty clipping noises. I don't make use of things like EQs, Limiters, Compressors and such very often, only if it's really needed. Of course lots of people recommend to do it, but in my opinion, it should sound as it would 'normally' do. But that doesn't mean I would never ever do that some day. I'll think about your tips when making a new song next time. They seem to be kinda helpful.

Amazing piece of music! It reminds me a bit of corneria from star fox, alone with an rpg battle theme, however it's a little bit soft compared to the final fantasy themes. I think this is more of your own awesome creation than some FF tribute. The song was really damn catchy, start to finish.

To be honest it's really completely more of my own work than a tribute to FF. Since I've never played any FF game yet and also didn't listen to much music from the FF series the only part I actually used from a FF battle theme is the muted distortion guitar in the beginning. The rest of it is what i thought what could actually fit into an rpg-battle theme.
