Okey dokey. This is the full length version of Climb - there's a few more layers against the looping version, as well as some instrument changes.

I'm a little concerned that I may have overdone it with this one.

As always, this is a direct render of the midi - the only post processing here was a 6db amplification and the reversal for the intro.

The midi itself is available on request - although you should be aware it uses the SC-88 soundbanks so will sound like crap on most drivers. With all of the controllers for that bass line, it also weighs in at a o_O'ing 245kb. For a 5 minute midi, that's huge.

The bass line is 3x Mad Lead (GS Prog 84, Bank 8) using resonance and cutoff controllers to do the fading and phasing in the midi itself. The defects you hear are there in the midi as well.

The lead is a tinkle bell - (GM prog 113, bank 0).

Drums are a mix of Techno (GS prog 12), Dance (GS prog 27), A Concert BD (GS 117, 08) and a good ol' Timpani (GM 48).

So there you go, I finally did a Midi that doesn't sound much like one <_<;


Edit : Updated 14th September 2008. Ok, this really will be the last update before judging. Basically, just used the compression tool before amplifying to reduce the number of clips, and squeeze a little (~.5dB?) extra volume. If it's detectable anywhere, it'll be on the drums and booms, as they were pretty much the peaks.

Doesn't seem to be much clipping

but then again it's very quiet. Some of the perc seems to take over at this volume, because it's at a higher frequency. As far as over-doing it it seems good and varied.

I gotta say though, working with just MIDI seems kind of limiting to me. I've not done much with it myself, but I'm fairly certain programs like Fruity Loops, Acid, Reason, and so on give you more options, if not just in the effects department.

the writing of it looks fine, but it doesn't really 'sound' good. I guess.

Thanks for commenting. :)

I had a look into FL following someone elses suggestion not too long ago - it turns out that my machines too old to get fruity up and running. Just hangs as its trying to set itself up. :(

I'll look into the other two. :)

The comment on the drums is interesting though - I actually turned them up as someone else said they were too weak - and the only way I could do that without clipping was to make everything else a little quieter. :/

I'll turn them back down and wait till I get some more feedback on this I think. :)

Edit : Re-render complete and uploaded. Thanks~!
