Plains Theme

I made this song with Echo, ages ago (http://echo.newgrounds.c om). It all started when someone asked me to make soundtrack for a game. I invited Echo to help me out and we started by making a game-over theme for the game. Then we moved on to this, which is supposed to play in a Plains-themed level. He came over to my house, and we built the foundations of the track, i.e. the instrumentation, main melody, intro and general atmosphere. Then, he went back and we left it as it was for a while. After some time, I went on a music-making marathon and finished it in a day.

So, then eventually we lost contact with the person asking us to make the soundtrack, and now, months and months after, I decided to submit this rather than leave it occupying space on my hard disk. Echo and I are really proud of this song, and we hope you like it too!

This uses a pan flute, a steel guitar (which is actually a layer of two separate rhythms - an arpeggio rhythm and the main rhythm), cello, a violin a drum kit, ambient effects/drums, congas (more specifically African Djembes or something), a piano and a nylon guitar, which is the weirdest but surprisingly fitting combination ever :P. We used Hypersonic 2 for the nylon guitar, ambient effects/drums and pan flute, Cinematic Strings for the violin, Stormdrum for the djembe things, the reverse cymbal and the drum kit, Virtual Guitarist 2 for the steel (rhythm) guitar and East/West Symphonic Orchestra for the piano and cello. Yeah, we gave this song all we got :P.

Sorry about the genre, by the way. I really have no clue what genre this is so I just put it under New Wave. It's probably the wrong genre, but hey, a genre doesn't make a song right?

I really hope you enjoy this song. We worked hard on it and I personally view it as my best or one of my best songs.

Thanks for listening!

Great stuff

I like it for some reason.
Maybe because I like Ambient music which is similar to this genre :P

Heh thanks!

Movie OST?

This is really amazing.

It sounds like something out of a Movie or a MMOs BGM...

This does not even need a Review, this simply needs one word.

Amazing~

Step responds:

Haha thanks. Long time no see :D.

Glad you liked the track!

Calming

I can listen to this while I sleep! I wonder where my dreams will lead me when exposed to this atmosphere (does music even have an effect on dreams?). Hmm, for some reason reminds me of the times when I was younger and my sis and I used to play with this Yamaha Keyboard our dad got us, thanks for this man. :3

Step responds:

Thanks for the review! Personally I can't seem to fall asleep easily with any type of music in the background, but everyone's different I guess. I'm sure music affects your dreams though - everything does so I don't think music is an exception.

Glad you liked the song!

The effort shows

Seems like the guy who made the request missed out on a lot, because this song is great.

The combination of instruments works really well, the mixing is great. The rhythm is energetic, but the melodies are calm. A nice contrast that gives it a very adventurous feel.

There are many details in this song and I'm going to study them. One day I want to make a song like this =D

Step responds:

Wow, thanks!

I'm pleased that you like the track. Pretty surprised you think the mixing is great though because when we made it we didn't know how to mix if our lives depended on it :P.

But anyhow thanks again for the supportive feedback!

nice

cool you were rigt. i doo like it. :]

Step responds:

Thanks :3.
