Secret of Mana - Not The End

Author Comments

This is a remix of the opening title to Secret of Mana based on work originally done by Destiny; it was also used in Seiken Densetsu 3. Known respectively as Angels Fear and Where Angels Fear to Tread. This is actually a re-release for the website since I wanted to have the original from 2007 deleted to upload this new one alone. Additions include a filter section during the intro drum, a few new drums hats, and a choir at the ending to give it a more epic feel. This song can also be found on VGMix where it is known as "It's Not The End" as opposed to "Not The End." This is due to Newgrounds 30 character limit for songs.



I don't have much time so I just make it quick xD
I just wanted to say that this song sounds so beautiful!
Great use of different sounds =]
I think only the volume of the piano could've been lowered a littlebit.
But overall this song is just beautiful!
Hay, have you tried to submit it to OC remix yet?

Keep up the good work!

Much Thanks. I agree I could tell there were a few spots where the piano could have been lowered a bit. The guitar also was slightly too loud on a note as the choir came in. She Was Dreaming in the Rain is my favorite song I've done (strong sentimental value), however this would be #2 even though it wasn't a full effort by me.

As for this going on OCRemix, I've thought about it; however, I don't know if I'll ever submit it to them. I feel it has a shot of getting in or at least getting a (resubmit) from the judges. It just depends on other stuff... like me contacting Destiny after 4-5 or so years. I originally did this version of the song in 03 or 04 with FL4 built in synths and some soundfonts so it sounded like... crap. (I still do use a few soundfonts in the song though). It also was missing other nice things I've added over the years to give the song more life/going on in it.

I've also thought about adding an original fully orchestrated minute or so leading up to the song. If I ever do submit this song to OCR it will probably have more added to it in the beginning or end... or both? It will also be a collab assuming Destiny gives an OK. We'll see what happens... I also want to save up and get Symphonic Orchestra Gold and maybe revamp the song one more time... it just owns Edirol overall + I want the best possible sound I can afford if I go with the original intro/ending added on.

Anyhow, thanks for the review. I liked your original 8-bit song btw. Would fit perfect in a side-scrolling shooter.
