This tells me things...
This song definately tells a story and just by listening to it I can understand somethings a little better. It also set some of my stories in motion. This song is a great inspiration...good job.
thx for teh positive review. s for the story, i believe i mentioned pico and piconjo in the ame sentence. theres a story for ye.
I just noticed that I've never been able....
to give you a really thorough review like I've done for others. So here it goes:
A really high-energy song, I love that! This song kept me on my toes!
The DBass Staccatos in the beginning kinda blend together, the release envelope should be tweaked just a bit to bring out the attack on those Stacs. The violin stac sounds a little synthy, may I recommend papelmedia strings? They've always served me well when it comes to staccatos, plus they serve as a viable alternative when my own string staccato just doesn't cut it, you know?
The brass also sounds a little weird, really synthy but not really fitting for an epic classical song like this.
I have to say though, this song is fucking sickening!
at 1:05, that was a really good idea, but you may have stayed in that section a little too long without sufficient change.
2:04 the brass solo was a little too sudden. In addition, you don't have the right brass to be able to pull off a solo like that. Also, the section after that may have been slightly too long for a bass drum hitting each beat. But that's just me, I like my songs full of energy.
I'll refrain from discussing arrangement and note choice because frankly, that was perfect. Those are the main reasons you're gettting this ten. This song is probably one of the most well-put together pieces I've heard. 5/5 10/10 downloaded and faved. I have the urge to build on this song, but I have to refrain from that because I have my own epic song I'm working on.
It just hit me why the violin stac sounds so synthy initially. It's because the staccato attack is so high, it sounds more percussive than string. Which leads me to another recommendation: lower the attack on the stac when there's a lot of space between notes, raise the attack when it's playing rapidly.
Finally, last thing: Could you do me a favor and check out my song Ready for War? That's the song I'm working on right now, but the WIP is uploaded onto my profile already. It's my own attempt at epic.
longer comment, longer reply. theres some karma for ya.
yeeah, the straight-up brass in GarageBand leaves much to be desired.
now that i hear it online, i agree with your violin assessment, and defend it by saying that the EQ changes slightly from GarageBand to iTunes and then to online here on NG. on GBand, it had no attack whatsoever, so i cranked up the high end a wee bit. point taken.
unfortunately, GBand is rather picky on what instruments it will take, so i doubt papelmedia will work.
eh. @ 1:05 i thought (for some odd reason) that having a mildly calmer section was a good thing. i was writing this with a slight direction towards my high school wind ensemble and mayhap combined orchestra, and i know for a fact that they and many other high school bands would not be able to keep up that kind of energy for the entire song, so... there you go.
and yes i will.
woah. this is possibly the longest review i have ever written. it took me 10 freaking minutes... i type slow. crud.
nice and classical very medevil
my thoughtrs exactly, besides the fact that you somehow managed to misspell a three-letter abbreviation
I hope it dosent end here
BECAUSE I WANT MORE :D MAKE A PART II :D
hmmmm dont usually do a sequel-esque thing. maybe in movements? ill think about it.
very classical yet sounds recent
yes. a lot of my stuff does, listen to moar and you will find that out.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
