Damn, this thing is HUGE!!! 64 patterns, 12 instruments, 9 automation clips, and, no shit, 5 minutes 6 seconds of what I consider to be one of my best pieces in my amateur career! It was so big, I had to drop the bitrate down just so that the mp3 would be uploadable when FL Studio finished rendering!

I hope you guys like this as much as I did. I particularly liked the speedy guitar, what about you guys? Leave your thoughts in a review, and even vote while you're at it! You are what will help me improve what needs improving!

EDIT: I added a couple of things in the middle and end of the song, giving an extra two seconds to the total song length. I'm not sure how well you guys will like the middle addition, but I think you'll like the end. I also lowered the master volume, since the sound level was starting to max out at some of the louder parts of the song.

EDIT #2: A few more additions, mostly at the end portion. Uses the speedy guitar.

Why hasn't this gotten any reviews ? :P
I think you've used some nice sounds for this remade version of it. I like the addition of the fast guitar, however it gets a bit too much being on for the most part of the song! It has enough melody in it self that it kind of looses itself in the original main melody - I hope you know what I mean.
The sound is also a bit too muffled for my taste - but so is the original version! Still epic melodies.

Fav'd and sub'd!

Sorry for the late response here and on your other review (which I will write momentarily), classes started just last week and I haven't been on near as much as I used to.

Obviously, I am still working on my ability as a musician, to the point that I'm taking college courses just so I can be a better composer. Even for stuff as old as this cover, it's encouraging to see reviews like this, especially now that I'm older and have a better idea of how to properly respond to a critique.

I agree, the fast guitar being on the entire song was indeed a bit much, but, you know, hindsight is 20/20. At the time I did this cover, I had listened to rtnario's XCEED version, which sounds much better than the original or, hell, this cover, and that gave me the idea to add a bass line in my project file. But when that was done, I still wasn't satisfied with the cover. It was at that point that I thought of the fast guitar, and once that was done, it really seemed to bring it all together.

I might redo this cover at some point, once I have a better idea of how to achieve what I had originally set out to do. Even today, I'm still learning how to use FL Studio, and my method of learning is more or less to just brute force my way through a song until I like how it sounds, then if the thought strikes me, to repeat the process until I find out how to do it better. Admittedly, there are probably much better ways to learn than how I'm doing it, but this is what I know and, thus far, what I know works.

Anyways, I'm glad that you like this. Like I said before, it's always encouraging to get a review that, while praising something, also offers critiques in an attempt to help make it better. There ain't near enough Newgrounders who would offer a review like this, especially now.

Thanks for the review! Hope you enjoy what I submit in the future!
