This here is a custom-made demo for the Dan Tranh VST released by Versillian Studios. Check it out here:
For a very reasonable price tag, you get a sampled Dan Tranh, the Vietnamese plucked instrument you're hearing in this track. I personally loved working with it, especially since not only does it have round robin and velocity layers and all that jazz, but tonnes of keyswitch perks like glissandi, effects, real vibrato, muted notes and tremolo! Plus it's sounds amazing, there's that too...
Its creators, samulis and camoshark, asked if I could get a demo done for it. I had to get it done in two days due to the release being today, so after around 15 hours done in two sessions (first being around 3 hours long, and then a full 12-hour music-making marathon to get this done because I'm a maniac) I managed to whip this up.
I'm really sorry if you think it sounds rushed, uninspired, generic or whatever. If it does, I totally understand and agree with you about it - I wanted to spend more time on this, maybe think of some better melodies, and make this a bit more authentic, but alas, the deadline was strict. For something like the 20th time in my lifetime I wished I had the power to pause time. That would be SWEET.
Anyway, this uses the Dan Tranh VST as I mentioned above, along with a free VST called Mini Dizi for that eastern high-pitched flute you're hearing. Everything else is East/west Stormdrum 2, Symphonic Orchestra Silver and Ra, except the choir which is Omnisphere. This was inspired by bassfiddlejones' song "Labbaik", and by the Misty Peaks battle theme in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate - two very good tracks I urge you to check out!
Thanks goes to stunkel, samulis and camoshark for giving me feedback! I'd love some other feedback though, so please leave a review if you're got the time. Thanks for listening, hope you enjoy it!
