This is my first submission ever to Newgrounds. I have played around a bit in the past with music editting software, and most recently came up with this. It is a simple Drum beat featuring Organs, Acoustic Guitars, and a Concert Piano.

The fade in and fade out might be a bit of an inconvenience, but as I said this is merely a project, and I was not planning on ending it abruptly.

Let me know what you all think!
I appreciate your time and thanks for listening!



Well done piece, I like it. :)

It reminds me of Davy's on the road again by Manfred Mann's Earth Band, especially the intro part.

Well Done.

Very nicely done. I actually know the preset that you used here... this is Acoustica Mixcraft you're using, isn't it? I've used the same preset in a song myself, though it's not on Newgrounds so I'm not just here to hype my own work XD.

This is a very nice work, and I love the reverb on the drums. I hope to hear more of your works in the future. The only reason I gave you an 8 is because I know that these are all preset loops, and I can't hear anything aside from them in the song. And while the loops are very well put together, there's no true originality. I know Mixcraft is Midi capable and can add some realistic sounding effects to them so you should take full advantage of that. It sounds good though. Best of luck with future submissions.

Very true, I didn't mean to make it seem like it was anything else. Sorry if I misled. I appreciate your words none-the-less and I am currently in the process of trying a few more "original" stabs at it. I am not knowledgeable with the program though, so its been slow progress. Thanks again!

makes me think of minds eye

I instantly loved this.


This is a brilliant little piece of music. Great for setting a scene and mood. Not bad for 'playing around' with editing software. I really want to hear more from you!

Thank you very much.

And that is mostly why I deemed it worthy to post and share on NG, because I was rather proud of myself (and my 'playing around' abilities).

Very Nice :)

I enjoyed that. The acoustic guitar and piano/organ gave me a real flashback to 'Yes'.

Sounds like something from Fragile. ;)
