Pirate Introduction

Here's a short song I made with pirates in mind. My computer cannot handle making or exporting long songs, so I apologize for the length. Anyone know where I can find a good dulcimer, harpsichord, and other old instruments, preferably for Kontakt? I cannot tell you how happy I'd be if I could find some.

Not a loop, but put on loop so it'll play automatically.

You've improved a lot from your earlier songs. It's short but very nice production wise. I can see this going with a pirate scene of sorts for sure.

EWQL has the instruments you're asking about, as someone mentioned before. If you want to go up a level afterwards, then it'd be Vienna (but really pricey).

haha! this is brilliant. Really captures that pirate feel!

Hehe, thanks! I'm glad! :3

Still works really nicely as a loop though...
Love the cellos!

AshleyAlyse responds:

Thank you, Grimagin! :D

I love it at :26 when it builds up a bit. Definitely captures a pirate feel! Super cool piece :)

AshleyAlyse responds:

Wahoo! Glad you like it! :D Thank you.... :3

Maarrrvellous! I haven't heard your music in a while, and when I logged in today, this was at the top of my "Latest From Your Favorites" section. I think it's my favorite song of yours. It really starts getting depth by the end.

As for the dulcimer, EWQL Goliath has one. It's and old piece of software, but it gets the job done. Something that might help you with long songs is recording each instrument, one at a time as a .wav, then combining the files and mastering the combined file. It's a pain, but that's how I had to do all my songs.

AshleyAlyse responds:

Oh, wow! Thanks for the info! I'll look into that! Thank you for zee review! :) I already do that with most of my songs, then combine them together in Audacity. Such a pain. :/

P.S. Please don't quit composing, you're awesome, dude! Even if it turns into a side hobby, please don't quitttt. I'll be sad. :C
