Another HamstaPowah song. ( www.hamstapowah.com ) This one actually made it into the lackluster RPG demo before Game Maker ended up in Yoyo's hands and my years of work got slapped into a whole new set of rules I didn't particularly agree with,s etting a multi-year project back to stage one. Kind of sad really but oh well. Someday~.

This one was used for the demo's main room, a cave with water reflections all over and stuff. As with Triads, I ported this into FL and covered it, hopefully increasing it's quality. Unlike Triads, it wasn't an easy payoff, but maybe it'll pay off that I fiddled with it for two hours on instruments alone, as Triads was fairly quick a port and isn't fairing the best...

Granted I still have much to learn on all fronts. -sighs-

Feedback appreciated. This one was a real pain to settle on something with. D:

Sounds like a legend of zelda song...

can't quite put my finger on which tho.
very good song. =)

great composition =)

the one reason for the - point is the distorting on some parts

It took me a few tries to hear where that was, but now that I've noticed it I can't hear anything else. XD Thanks for pointing that out, as I obviously hadn't noticed.

Fits Purpose.

Wyld states it well. Good reverb, bells pull off a fluid feeling, and with those two I could say it could compliment exactly what it was designed for.

i'd say you did a good job!

it has a really great sound to it. I think that you've achieved a sound that works for what you were working for. The bells give that watery drip drop sound a cave may have. The reverb you put in works wonderfully! over all great work on this!


ZaronX responds:

As usual you always have good feedback. I like that.

Someday I oughta get the original MIDI linked in the comments somewhere or something. The bells were initially a flute and piano, but I just couldn't get anything in that area to sound right, and that's where all the time went. After about two hours with the thing I settled on the bels, and finally realized I could probably go ahead and layer some stuff, and that resulted with this. : D

So far staring at the screen that long while wondering what could save the song seems to be paying off, too. <3 Glad you approve. : )
