A shorter song that didn't have much time spent on it. Just made for fun. Enjoy!



Rated 2.5 / 5 stars


Hmmm, not very original sorry. And I think you have even worse sound fonts than! That's not good. It's not your fault, ya need a better program.

Ok, I use finalenotepad or Allegro, that might help. There is also Synth Font, which is better at applying sound fonts than notepad, but not quite as easy to use (for me anyways). Fruity loops, ya gotta pay for that...and also Sebilius. Anvil studios...though I think that might not help you at all because it doesn't even use sound fonts, it's just MIDI.

I like the effort, but I think it could have been used more patiently. I know u didn't spend -that- much time on this one. Besides, it sounds like I've heard it all before. Unless it's a which case sorry for not saying it's original. You got a messenger or somethin'. I want to work with you.

BTW, I scratched your back, you scracth mine (unless you don't want to that's fine :P). Please review Kirby's Metaknight.

Wow. All these people are expecting it to have been scary. lol. Although I had the title, Nightmare, I didn't actually want it to be scary, per say. lol. Thanks for the review.

Those lousy snares.

I liked this one, it has a neat dark quality to it.

You weren't joking when you said your snare sounds were bad, they could REALLY use an uplift. I would suggest finding samples on the internet, and just plopping them into whatever program you use.

I have begun using Fruity Studio's, it is a fairly easy program to learn, my strongest advice, learn that, because it will open up a world of possibilities to you.

I liked it, keep it up Harddrive100.

Harddrive100 responds:

I will look up fruity studios. Thank you.

I'm glad someone else is reviewing me. I love getting new opinions.

ah snares!

This song reminds me of the War piece, especially when you have that sole timpini and the snares start going... but then that violin you add to the mix, and then the trumpets.

I think it may actually be better to start off the song like that, first snares, then the timpini as a form of tempo beat, then the strings, and so on from there!

I can definatly hear some melody work, for something you did just quickly, I am quite impressed.

Those snares could use a bit of work Harddrive.

In this link is a collection of a lot of good composers, and in this profile, is my newest piece, the rise of Dark Lords, now I want you to listen to the first 20 seconds of that song, becase it starts off with a snare and percussoinal start, and I feel it may help you expand on your snare skills.

The song as a whole felt very intact.

Now some suggestions outside the norm.

I see you've dived a bit into horror music, excellent, I too am currently trying to create some dark stuff, not succeeding too well, but with practice right ^^.

Organ, organ, organ, every dark piece, feels just at home with a nice classical church organ! If you have one, try it out, replace the horns with it, and temporarily make the strings mute, so you can just listen to the organ and the flute, I think it may sound rather neat ^^.

Piano/Organ, Flute, High Strings, Choir

These four instruments, I find are the very backbone for some amazing horror music, as well as soundeffects, many many soundeffects, but forget the soundeffects, lets just focus on the piece as a whole ^^.

I will give you 5/5 because you are taking the right steps, and cannot wait to hear what you might bring later ^^. Keep them coming Harddrive.

Harddrive100 responds:

Wow. Dark Lords is intense.

I will probably not improve this song, though. At least not for a while. I'm gonna write some new things.
