Well this is my first composition using Stormdrum 2 and Symphonic Orchestra Gold and boy do I love this software. I like how the song ended up and I'm really please with the results. The only thing I really regret is not buying more ram before buying the software. Compose a couple measures, then freeze each track. Compose some more, then freeze. Ah well. I guess that's what I get for being on a budget.

I didn't do much in the sense of mixing. Most of the instruments they have are already pre-panned so I just tried to level out all the instruments to sit well in the mix. I haven't figured out the multi-output instruments so I wasn't able to apply compression to the drumkits as I'd like, but I still like where it ended up.

As the title states, it's supposed to be a dungeon that provides one with unforeseen challenges. Let me know what you think.

Please vote fairly, thanks in advance for any comments.

Beauty in itself...

I wish i could rate higher than 10.
Very good piece,now i expect more like this to come.

SinJim responds:

Thanks for the review! If you like this one, you'll probably like my other song, "The Raid." I'll PM in a bit with a link. Hopefully I can come up with some more stuff along these lines.



The music itself isn't good, but not great, but the beat is really great, which is kinda rare in classical songs...So I gives it a 10.

SinJim responds:

Haha, glad to see you stopped by to listen to this one. Thanks for the review!



Hey, sorry I didn't get to this till now. I read your PM and then forgot about it... :P.

but anyhow, I think this is a great song! Very atmospheric and often subtle with the instrumental layering. I personally would've like to see a more intense climax, but that's just a matter of a composer's preference.

I agree that the software sounds great! It's very realistic, I may need to upgrade my own software some time...

The only complaint I have about the song is that in the beginning that high percussion note doesn't really fit in too well. Although it's percussion, it has a tonal quality, and keeping the note its playing constant wasn't really fitting with the chord progression, and it was kind of diverting the mood that you were trying to create.

Other than that, great work! I don't mind the PM at all, in fact, I appreciate artists letting me know when they release new works!


SinJim responds:

Thanks for the review, Sycross. I assume that, with the percussion, you're talking about the anvils. I can see how that might conflict with the tonal aspects of the rest of the piece; but I'll have to listen closely to see if I can detect it. I thought I paid close enough attention to that, but I'll go back and have a few more listens.

In retrospect, I think that I could have done better with the climax. Then again, me adjusting that depends if I can make time to put that on my list of things to do haha.

The new software is incredible and I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone. Well worth the money (yes a lot of money) spent on that. I would also recommend you have around 4 GB to run it because I run out of ram ALL the time with 2 GB. Ah well.

I'm glad that you liked this one, I'll let you know when I post up some other pieces. Thanks again for the review!



this is a fantastic piece, starts out on a mono of metal working and despair, turns into a orchestral dream with and industrial and serious sound, i like it alot, good work, you get a 5/5 and 10/10

SinJim responds:

Thanks for the comments, I'm glad that you enjoyed this piece.



Ear orgasm ! LoL

I love this, it's beautiful...

SinJim responds:

Haha, thanks. I'm glad you liked this.
