This song was inspired by Motoi Sakuraba's music from SNES/PS1. Lots of reverb and a progressive feel without being really long.

I mainly used Ravity S for this song. Strings were from a soundfont.
Harpsichord from Versilian Studios (thanks samulis!)

Alright, well I tried looping this song properly on NG for about 20 minutes and it just wasn't working. I guess it was the preview all along because it seems to be looping perfectly now

thx m8
I don't know what happened but this song has way more plays than my other stuff, so I'll gladly take some more luck

Love it! I even made a playlist with this in only... nothing else!

ILG924 responds:

Thanks, glad you liked it!

Excellent, exciting and it stays interesting. The only thing I'd say is maybe use a different instrument for that lower bassline of yours, something that holds up the rest of the track in a stronger way, but that's personal preference. Good work, keep at it.

ILG924 responds:

I'd have to play around with the bass a little more, that was probably the instrument that I spent the least amount of time on. I think I know what you mean, the lower notes lack a little bit of power. Since this is kind of mimicking an old SNES/PS1 sound, that's to be expected with the VST I was using.
I do agree though, I'll see if I can mix a cooler sounding bass into my next song. I also need to practice writing some more interesting basslines, so a clean sounding bass can only help
Thanks for the review!
