This is perfect! I love it, can I use this for a short horror film I am creating? I will credit you :)
Go for it! Shoot me a PM when it's up so I can go watch!
This is certainly unlike anything I've heard from you before.
Particularly the xylophone, I'm not sure I've heard you use such an instrument. You certainly did a great job with it though, the melody played on it feels perfect.
I'm happy with nearly all of of the instruments you've used in this track, with the unfortunate exception of the main strings, which come into play at the very beginning and stick around for the whole time. I've never been a fan of that awkward sound of a synth that's trying to be strings, and almost but not quite succeeding.
The other strings in the song sound fine to me though, so maybe it's just their prominence leading me to pick on them. This being said, for a first try with these instruments you've done a great job, and overall I like this track quite a bit.
Great job, I can't wait to hear it in the game!
I love the xylophone -- that little bit of echo on it suits it very well, I feel.
Synthesized strings can be more realistic, for sure. As you know, I don't work with these sort of instruments usually, so I don't quite have the ear for the right velocities yet. I will say though, that earlier in the production of this piece I was using a different string sample that did NOT sound very good, so I'm glad I changed it and got at least this far, hehe.
The violin soundfont I used is great. I'm proud of the melody section it's featured in, looking back.
Nothing like something different to listen to, eh? Thanks for the review!
