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!

Oh god! This is just amazing, Step! In before I remix this one to electro house if you still remember, lol. Anyways, I really like the changes I hear and they are wonderful. You probably don't know how much I love this! <3 This is just so good. I like how it starts slow and then slowly goes to an action packed theme.
Also, I found some small clipping around 1:57-2:06. If you listen closely you will hear.

But very good work, Step!! :D

Woo, thanks!

OH, you're RalaiyX3! You changed your name. I WAS WONDERING WHERE YOU WENT.

Yep, one of the main things I wanted to change from the original is the progression. I wanted it to feel like it progresses properly to the climax, rather than coming in out of the blue like it did in the original.

"Also, I found some small clipping around 1:57-2:06. If you listen closely you will hear."

I think that might be because the Flutes VST was in beta so there were a few audio glitches that needed ironing out. I tried to avoid the glitches but I guess I couldn't get all of them. Now that you've mentioned it I hear it too. Ah well, at least it doesn't really detract from the experience much!

Thanks a lot for reviewing.
