I was inspired by many RPG soundtracks to come up with this music. I wanted to make a pretty simple track where you could just sit back and relax to the sound of this music track!

Great string work in the beginning, the staccato and legato stuff really worked well together. I'm struggling to figure out what kind of scene in an rpg I'd put this in. Some things are sorta world mappy, others are more town based. Maybe you were going for the main theme music that encompassed everything. You certainly mixed this one up a ton (almost too much, really). I enjoyed the piano parts going solo for the first couple of times, but once the song picked up it ruined the mood a bit.

The ending (4:00 +) got really epic, but then you calmed it down again. I sorta wanted this to end more triumphantly. I would consider tossing some timpani and crash symbols in this.

If your goal was to get me relaxed, you succeeded :)

Wow, the inclusion of the vocal at 1:40 was really surprising, and really brings the piece together in a satisfying way.

That piano at 2:00 though sounds very lame. (Don't mind me... I play a lot of piano. :X)

Your melodic ideas are actually pretty solid, but without any sort of transitional structure to let me know that you're starting a new one, I almost always end up missing them unless I really pay attention. Try putting a cymbal crash right as you start your next melodic idea and I think it'll help things come together more.

Overall I enjoyed it. The main thing that I didn't like are the somewhat random string hits. Even when you don't have random string hits, you have random piano hits. It makes listening to the song a very jarring experience.

The non vocal stuff is, to be blunt, not as interesting. But the vocal parts, man. They show promise! I think you should take that vocal idea and build on it, extend it out. That's the core of the song.

Good stuff, keep it up.

This is a really good track! I think that the voice seems a little bit out of place just because it sounds a little less smooth compared to the rest of the track. I could totally see this song in an RPG though. What did you make this in?

Thanks for the great feedback.

I used different kinds plugins, but I it's been a while since I made this music track so I forgot some of the names.

The strings are from East West Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra ^^

This is grrrreat stuff! So moving and awesome :D
I love how you slowly build it up, this uplifting passage around 1:40 is crazily good!
I could totally imagine this flowing in the background while watching a movie.

I hope you keep it up,

greets, Fabyy
