Ok this is the best song from you in my opinion, and there all good, but
this one just seems like it would go great with just about anything.
so awesome job!
Ah, ha! Well, thank you very much. :)
Thanks a lot for the review as well!
Casino Nights goes '20s?
Man, if there was some kind of mafia game around the Sonic universe, this would be what the bar pianist would play. And that's exactly why I find it awesome. There's just a little detail, the drumlines are a bit out of place. They don't go very well with the piano, but that's minor.
Ah! I would agree: this song does have a 20s nostalgic feeling to it. You aren't the first to say so and I find that interesting because I just thought this arrangement just sounded pretty cool, myself. This track definitely would fit in such a time period the more I think about it.
As for the drums, I tried using a softer and more mellow-sounding kit that wouldn't overpower the lead and backup instruments (Honky-Tonk Piano, Picked Bass, CP-80/Electric Grand Piano and Bright Piano). In this case, I chose the 808/Analog Drum Kit for the percussion channel for a smoother sound. Nothing else seemed to fit, even the Jazz Drum Kit.
At any rate, glad you enjoyed this song! Thank you very much for an honest review and good critique. I greatly appreciate it. :)
this is an amazing song. what software do you use to make music?
Well, a MIDI composer named John Weeks is my collaborator in all the tracks I have posted so far. Please note that I got his permission to modify and post these piano arrangements of songs from Sonic games.
I don't know what program John Weeks used to build the source MIDIs that I've used for my Sonic piano arrangements, but I used Music Studio Producer, a freeware program, to modify John Week's MIDI files. However, from what I can see and have learned so far, you could use this program to sequence your own songs. Plus, being free, its certainly a good way to go.
For sound output, I used the WinGroove Software Synthesizer, a shareware program. Now, WinGroove is cheap at $20 and has vastly better sound quality than the Microsoft GS Wavetable Synthesizer that comes with most versions of Windows, but since this program was built to run on operating systems between Windows 3.1 and Windows XP, it will not function on Windows Vista and Windows 7.
I'm very happy you enjoyed this little collaboration between me and John Weeks. :) Thanks a lot for the review as well!
Come on sit down and have a drink!
It's like i just stepped into and old timey pub! this is a pretty sweet arrangement! i dig the vibe and feel! You made a good song even better! 5/5 and 10/10 for nostalgia and talent! keep it up!
Glad to hear you really enjoyed this track. :) Granted, I can't take full credit for this song as John Weeks was the one who sequenced the MIDI used to make this song. However, I modified his MIDI file and posted this song here with his permission. I only wish Newgrounds would allow collaborations in the Audio Portal like they are in the Flash Portal so John Weeks's name would be displayed with mine on this and my other piano arrangement tracks.
Nonetheless, thank you very much for the review! Maybe you would enjoy my other Sonic-themed tracks as well. :)
That's probably the only thing I could get out of me. Just great! I really love piano in songs and this made the best out of it
10/10 5/5 and fav
Cool! As you can most likely tell, I really like piano tunes as well. Thank you you very much for the review and I'm glad you enjoyed this song! :)
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
