This project was started in February 2013 in FL Studio 10. After a long hiatus from the project, I finally did some basic mixing and mastering in mid-September 2013. It's largely based on an old Garageband song I made when I was 12 or something. Can anyone identify the Garageband loops I recreated in FL? Anyway, it took me about 6 hours total. It's definitely not my best track, and the structure is kind of messed up, but hopefully the crashes at least half-cover that! ;D Thanks for listening, and enjoy! ^^

Here we go, agreed with others, this is a great background track to RPG style games

TaintedLogic responds:

Thanks, KCJSDP! Maybe some day I'll get my music into a game...

I really imagine this playing in the background when playing a game like age of empires, reminds me of the very first aoe..

TaintedLogic responds:

Thanks man! ;D I never would've imagined that my music is suitable for videogames.

Neat beats right in the beginning. Lots of high frequencies, that's fine though. Cool rolls around 1:17 Toms. I really enjoy the baseline. Chords are sounding a little dissonant though and by 1:00 I'm wondering if there's going to be a change in the song, it's starting to feel a little repetitive. By 1:20 I'm hearing some variations on the chords which is cool, but I think what this needs is more changes.

What I want you to work on is having your songs change over time - build up, break down, climax, all that good stuff. The normal way that people give songs 'motion' is by adding or removing instruments. What I really wanted to hear from this song was after, like, the 1 minute mark, a piano in the upper registers could come in and start doing some sweet solo, you know? Or something else to make it feel like the song is progressing. You might find it helpful to listen to some of your favorite songs and see how they move the song along, and then apply the same ideas. There are really just a few tricks that most musicians use.

I gave it kind of a low score but I don't think it's particularly bad, so don't let it get you down. The song definitely shows promise. Try to keep that stuff about moving the song along in mind and I would be interested to hear what you could come up with it.

TaintedLogic responds:

Yay! :D Thank you, Johnfn! I agree with the repetition issues, and I'm glad you noticed the rolls with the conga! ^^ I really appreciate the advice about progression - I need to work on that, I concur. I really don't care at all about the low rating. You've been overwhelmingly kind to take time out of your busy schedule to give me all this feedback, Johnfn. I'm honored that I'm being advised by one of the top 8 musicians on NG. Thank you so much for your continued support! :D

Pretty good, just really soft...like almost too soft.
It's like you lay your head down on a pillow and its just too fluffy.
I did like the idea though!

TaintedLogic responds:

Haha, thanks JQiscool! ;D This is one of the only tracks I've uploaded to NG that I didn't use a limiter on, and that bass got really distorted on full volume, so I turned the master volume way down. I was really going for that ambient feel, but I think I will try to do something more with it. Definitely not my best track, I agree. Thanks again! :)
