One year and a few months after joining Newgrounds, I only have this to leave you. This is a remake of my very first track on Newgrounds: Westminster Tune ~ Preuve de foi (simply titled Preuve de foi over on NG).

FL Studio 10 all the way. This mirrors the first file which was on demo FL Studio 9.

Used in this project:
Akai-Steinway III soundfont, by Denis.

Tubular Bells by Sonido media.

I really like it. The backing bells, synths, choir, organs and other things I can't identify are not overused, used only at strategic moments, which I can appreciate. Strikes a good balance between grandiose and quiet, neither overdone nor boring at any moment. The pauses where the strings take over are a nice contrast to the piano.

The ending kind of trailed off, but that's not a big deal for this kind of music.

All I could suggest is slightly less overpowering piano (it sometimes grates at the ears at higher volumes) and a stronger ending. I'm favoriting this.

sounds beautiful. Nice work! You have some excellent sounding instruments. And Woot! I use FL Studios too! =v=

Troisnyx responds:

Eh, thank you. ^_^ I have, among others, the people who posted the 800+ soundfonts on NG to thank. Are you running on FL Studio 10 or 11 out of curiosity? (I'm still running on 10...)

Very nice!

I like how decent you use the string - essemble and also the piano. Great idea to improove the string set by combining it with this synth - arpeggios! The organ-ending does not really satisfies me - more effort would have payed out. Another thing which could be improved in my oppinion is to bring in a strong midpart with an "explodion of volume and accoustic colors" and a virtuous piano-solo and some keychanges, maybe supported by some timpani / percussion. I am sure it would be no problem for you to create something like that. I really appreciate your piece. You put much effort on the details and especially this is quite rare to find. Hope you like constructive criticism as much as i do and that this review was helpful for you.

Keep it on! Voted 5.

All the best!

I feel that I've heard better songs, but this piece is nothing to be ashamed of. It is a very calming piece, and I enjoyed listening to it.

Troisnyx responds:

Please, tell me more.

great piece. but your comments make it sound like you're leaving. it'd be a shame to lose such a great artist.

Troisnyx responds:

I had contemplated leaving, especially with how discouraged I've been made -- not only losing or barely scraping through every competition, but simply being told I just wasn't good enough. But the few who have stood by me all this time have told me, in more ways than one, not to give up. T_T
