This thing's been hanging around on my hard drive for a few months now, but I only just got round to finishing it and mixing it all down. I was trying to make something that sounded like it could be used in an RPG, for when the heroes are fighting something big and nasty - initially, I wanted to get a sort of Motoi Sakuraba-like sound, since I really like his work on the Tales and Golden Sun series. It didn't quite go the way I'd planned (it sounds nothing like him) and I'm still not 100% sure about the key change toward the end, but overall I think it turned out okay, especially since this is the first time I've ever tried something like this. Anyways, I hope you guys like it...
Sequencer: Cubase Essential 5 (kind of a stripped-down version of Cubase 5- but the stuff it's missing, I haven't needed, and it costs five times less than normal Cubase)
Synth: HALionOne (A simple little sample player that comes with Cubase - I used it for all the instrument sounds in the piece)
