very good song keep up the great work nice mixture of instruments
I heard this song for the first time some months ago, but decided to review it after countless of reruns on my mp3 player :)! I love the whole 'medieval' feel to this song.
How did you get those strings to be so realistic? Are you using a special vst plugin? And that flute? Also a vst?
What program did you use to create this? Did you use a Groove Agent like program to make the drums?
I'de love to work together on a song sometime in the future :) I'm eager to learn :D
Hey! Thanks for the great review.
The strings were originally a synth melody, but I later converted them to a marcato viola patch using the soundfont Squidfont Orchestral. To get them realistic sounding I spent a lot of time editing each individual note. The piccolo flutes and other orchestrated elements are from the same soundfont, which as far as I know is available online.
The beat is a sliced, rearranged beat using a lot of samples, drumloop's something I got from a guy long ago, it's called "tighten_up" so it could be from Archie Bell & The Drells - Tighten Up... I dunno. I prefer rearranging drum loops to constructing new ones from separate samples because it sounds warmer and less staccato.
Used FL7 for everything. :]
gosh this music rocks! one of the best.
Best song ever
Great melody! It's hard to find a good "dance" type song with a good melody nowadays. I do wish you had thrown in some more syncopation, though. It seems to stay a bit too much on the beat, and when it goes off (quicker notes), it's really nice. But overall, another winner.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
