Festival Day

Hey everyone, this here is an entire remake of an old track of mine entitled The Festival. It was the most well-received track from the trio of songs I made as a soundtrack for the game "Lost Ball", and I always thought it had a lot of room for a remake, so here it is! I entirely scrapped the minute-long intro of the original since I had feedback that it didn't quite fit with the rest of the track, and added in a whole bunch of new stuff, basically making it again from scratch.

More importantly, this is a demo for the upcoming flutes VST by Versillian Studios, the same people who worked on the Dan Tranh VST I also made a demo for. It's not out yet but this track should give you an idea of what the VST is capable of. Every flute sound in this demo track, including even a piccolo, blown bottle and whistle, whether staccato, legato or sustain, came from the plugin. It's a really fantastic plugin!

Everything else - brass, strings and drums - comes from East/West, except the guitar which is Omnisphere, AND major props goes to samulis for recording the clarinet (that can be heard mostly at the beginning), trombone (1:13) AND voice (1:13) in this track, plus giving me valuable feedback along the way (along with being the person who actually developed the VST...).

Feels nice to be uploading music again after such a long break! Hope you enjoy this, and comments are muuuuch appreciated!

This song gives me an isekai-celtic vibes. Also, can i use this song for my geometry dash level?

I came here from Orcs X and I have to say, it really fits there and it's a really great song. It would be really cool you could post it on Spotify (don't know if it's complicated or something, I would just really like it). Also, for some reason it reminds me of Glorious Morning from Waterflame.

this is probably the best song i ever heard, but you should have found a more original name for it i am trying to play the song in discord using rythm bot but so many things are called festival day that it cant regognize it! its really sad but the song is great, i just dont want to open orcs x go to credits click the link in my phone copy it to my computer in order to hear the song i like anyways great work but maybe a more original name will be nice

I love this song.

I can't help but be swept away to a mountain town, Tibetan-style, with the long colored streamers waving in the breeze. High above the plains, near the roof of the world we will have out festival.

*This monastery here probably has killer-sweet festivals that need a jam like yours.

Woah! Iove the Japanese style of the song! Well to me it sounds kind of Japanese.

Step responds:

Japanese... that's interesting. I was aiming for a Celtic kind of vibe but Japanese is cool too.

Thanks for reviewing!
