hey this is really awsome, and so sad at the same time, i wish i could write something this original, i like the strings, what instruments are you using? i like the fact that they are so strong in this song, and...do you think i could write the lyrics and make a cover version, if you would let me, please ^^
The strings, as well as the piano and some other instruments I sometimes use, I found in the free soundfonts portion of Audix's music site. Just google "Audix Music Soundfonts" and the strings are there. It's all done in Fruity Loops btw.
As for lyrics, I've already written some, though I'd love to see your take on the song. That goes for lyrics and cover. It'll be interesting to see how you interpret the music and compare it to my interpretation.
As for writing something this original.. I listened to your preview track, and I liked what I heard. It needed some work, but it's definately heading somewhere!
nice job, its really good.
i just have one quarrel with the strings, they seem a bit overpowering to me, as in a bit louder than everything else.
a slight fix but you have to be careful because the strings are the main body so turning it too low will damage the song.
overall really nice
I agree with you on the strings, listening to this on my shitty computer speakers instead of HQ headphones showed me how much better it could sound, so I went back and remastered it.
Took some of the power out of the strings in order to let the main melody enjoy it self more, while still keeping the main body of the song strong. Also lowered the drums because they were way too loud, gave the bass a bit more presence and took some of the edge off the Piano.
Just about to upload the remastered version as I'm typing in this response. Next on my to do list is to attempt vocals.
Oh, and sorry for taking so long to reply, I kinda forgot about Newgrounds.
Amazing! just love it! it's so relaxing! if you ever get round to doing lyrics (which i suggest) this song would be unbeliveable! Keep up the amazing work!
This is going directly onto my ipod! :D
Whoa, sorry for taking this long to respond!
I have written lyrics and might record vocals in the coming days. Not sure if my singing voice is quite up to the task though..
Thanks for a great review and let this song be played many a times on your ipod!
I'm working on a full album which will probably be released this summer (when the cover is ready and I stop fiddling with all the tracks.)
Oh, and I'm just about to upload a remastered version of this song, you should check it out.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
