Wow, this is just magical from start to finish, it really revitalises my memories of playing Yoshi's Island. It's made me want to go play it again now, good job!
Thanks :) Glad you enjoyed it!
at the start its peaceful then it gets awsomer good job auther
Beautiful work Ryan! The introduction is just magical - it really brings me back to my childhood. Speaking of which, the entire track has that feeling of childhood innocence and rambunctiousness. This is really indicative of all of those great Yoshi's Island tracks that are captured in this piece. Your transitions are quite seamless! They flow with a great pace that keeps things interesting. The percussion is exciting, the strings and brass are heartwarming, and the piano really does the job.
The drums are a tad dry starting at 1:09, but in some ways that's very fitting and it's hardly noticeable because of the tight mixing job. The strings, as a whole, are quite digital sounding (mostly the solo violin)...but that's on Symphonic Orchestra; the execution is wonderful. Other than those small nitpicks, this is great.
Really, really, really good job man! :)
Thanks man! I never really thought about how the entire track is child-like innocence, rowdyness... I'll have to keep that in mind because it definitely fits! And the drums being too dry I realized that only recently... The drums were actually too wet before... and to the point where so I took off a bunch of the reverb from it, I guess I did a little too much! I think where you mentioned it starts it shows the most, it started to sound really muddy in the entire mix so I took it off of everything. And yeah the solo violin can sound a bit digital at times... There are certain aspects where I think I made it sound like it was bowing which i was quite happy with, but other times I definitely agree with you.
Thanks for the review man :D
Ahaha, love it! :D
