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!

Damn, only one major climax in the song, now I have to listen to it twice as many times as before! DAMN YOU, STEP! *raises fist to the sky*


Step responds:

Oh come on, even the older version had only one major climax!

Thanks for the review ^_^.


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.

Step responds:

Haha thanks! Glad you like it.


I've heard the 2 versions, and I can't really tell which one I prefer. I love them both! I found celtic music is missing in this portal, and your contribution is AWESOME <3
Thank you :D


Step responds:

I agree, I love Celtic music and I think there needs to be more of it in the Audio Portal. Glad you liked this, and thanks for dropping by again and reviewing one of my tracks!


sounds like a festival, in a magical world. filled with music , magic, and wonder.


Step responds:

That's the idea! Thanks for the review :).
