If you remember this song, Its because you've heard the older version. I took it down because I felt that I could make a one that was more superior. This version is a bit clearier and sound a more climatic with more changes in it, specifically the drums.

That's me howling. nothing is behind you.

Lots of chracter

* Needs better production on the strings (bowing, crescendos, phrasings)
* Howling is cool
* You keep changing modes; sounding chinese at times and japanese at other times. Pick one and then trick it out;
* Use the pitch bender to bring some life into your zither part (hit note, do a super fast pitch wheel bend and release it so it snaps back for example)
* Shaker sounds like a drum machine, some way to spice it up?

Thanks for the tips. I'm gonna keep them in mind for the next song that I do. I'm proud to tell you though that I've been using dynamics recently =).

I can't tell the difference between Japanese rhythms and Chinese. But I'm gonna look into that.

Thanks for the review.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

been a while

since i last reviewed one of your songs

i dont think you set the mood quite well enough

also those strings you got there i think need to be messed with or you need to add a lower compliment to it so its not to over powering

personally though i would replace the strings with an ehru

it would match the rest of the song better in my opinion

ClimbLadders responds:

I've tried the string thing with lowering it an octive, but it messes up the pizz. strings and the harp, and the koto combos..

I've never heard of a ehru. I'm gonna go see what it is when I get the chance.

Thanks for the review.

Pretty Nice

I really like the drum samples you used.. What are those? I like the trombone(?) line that pops in occasionally.. It feels like it could use a bit more driving bass line though, or maybe a pad with a trance gate.. Its as if the melody has no rythym at times, and that would fix that

A useful synth for orchestral sounds is Miroslav Philharmonic, it's kind of hard to come by, but its all sampled off of actual string and brass instruments, its worth checking out
Sounds awesome though

ClimbLadders responds:

I've never used a least not yet. Everything you hear besides my voice are different soundfonts. The drums are SGM-v2.01. You can get this for free =)

Yes, it is the combination of a trumpet and trombone. The trumpet was needed because without it, the trombone would have been too smooth. I needed a rough flare to it.

Thanks for that suggestion. I'm gonna look into it. More sounds wouldn't hurt at all.

Thanks for the review!

Gettin' better & better Eric!!

You seriously need to get in contact with some video game composers or companies.

ClimbLadders responds:

Thanks. If only I knew some that would even consider me... But I like the compliment!

Thanks for the review!

Pretty Good song!

It has good drums and instruments and everything. Very mysterious sounding. Although, I don't really think of wolves when I hear it even though there are howls. I'm saying if there weren't any howling it would make me think more of just a mysterious forest.....well maybe it's ok to have howling....hehe... Ok well that's all just my opinion anyways so who cares LOL. It's a great track either way. Awesome job!

ClimbLadders responds:

I think the same thing as you, except there are wolves in that forest. But the beauty of music is that it can be interpreted in lots of ways.

I actually was going to make this without howling when I first made it. I wanted it to be a bamboo forest at first...then a tiger forest. I couldn't sound like one then, so I moved on to wolves lol. If that didn't work, I was gonna go monkey. If that didn't work, I was gonna leave it plain.

thanks for the review!
