This is simple background music for a visual novel I'm making. This isn't anything too grand or epic, so don't start listening to it thinking with that mind set. Also, a critique would be nice.


Impressive!! RPG music baby!

Haha, reminds me of the good old days with Legend of Legaia! I seriously really, really enjoy this song, it may not be epic but makes up for it by being just plain invigorating. This song makes me want to go questing. I don't know if I would move on to anything symphony, it seems you could make a living just off background music like this.

Alright so if I haven't made myself clear, I love it. My problems? Here goes:

I would really like to see it go some place. You seem to be stuck a little man. Love, the theme you have going here, but it gets a bit repetitious and then it just ends! I really want to see this go some place, that would make me very happy. Seriously love the theme you have going though.

My only other thing is you may make use of some woodwinds or brass. Your strings and percussion go awesome together, but even if you do not have good midi instruments, it would be awesome to hear a horn, a flute, or a clarinet in here. But, only after you opened with this theme.

In the end man, I see as what could be an excellent song as opposed to the loop you made. As a loop it's wonderful. As a song, it could be incredible. Maybe not even a song, but if you added on some string variation, you may see a 9 or 10 come your way from me. Really, man I love it, it's only personal preference holding me back.

On count I have listened to about twenty times now. Haha, it makes me want to go an adventure! =)

I'll mess with it some more and maybe put up a version 2 sometime like with another piece of music I made. I don't really plan on making it into a song really (as the intention was some quick BGM I needed for my project), but I could maybe add a different melody, and believe me I did go through woodwinds and brass trying different melodies, each coming up short until I said fuck it and finished the percussion.

Very nice!

Ya, ima have to agree with achilles. Very nice track an layers.

have you tried using MIDI instruments? They are actually very high quality and contain most if not all of the orchestral instruments.


Have you ever considered writing like... symphony works. You've got so many layers to show how much is going on in your head. Go for it man.

Koji98 responds:

Maybe if I get a better VST for FL Studio. The one I have has decent orchestra and percussion stuff, but most of the brass and woodwinds stuff don't sound that hot.
