Just a (really) short loop that I whipped up for fun. Inspired by RPG tracks which have to do with, you guessed it, rivers/water. In particular, those of the Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles soundtrack and works by Motoi Sakuraba.

VSTs/Plugins used:
- Forest Kingdom II
- Hollywood Strings (Gold)
- Symphonic Orchestra (Gold)
- QL Spaces
- FL native plugins

+ Me playing the guitar (or, at least trying to...)
+ Me singing/humming (again, making an attempt)

Please let me know what you think! :)

It's very nice. Short, but a nice ambient loop. I can totally imagine a peaceful riverside when listening to this.

(On p.s. not sure if you know who Waterflame is, but he is following you.)

Im running out of daily Bard dosis, this one helped but I am going to need more x)

Neon-Bard responds:

Haha! Good to hear from you VGM! I've been pretty invisible here on Newgrounds for the past...forever...I have some stuff that I've been working on that will hopefully be up soon. Thanks for listening! :)

Argh! It's so short, but--man! It's just so good. Short or not, it's really great to see you submitting something. I love these nostalgic Crystal Chronicles feels. Well played, Neon-Bard...both metaphorically and literally. I feel a strange urge to pick up a Crystal Chalice and collect shimmering drops of Myrrh. Incidentally, my 2014 NGADM track Tir Na Nog was inspired a bit by FFCC.

I don't know why exactly, but nothing is looping properly for me here on Newgrounds anymore, including my own loops. Hoping that the issue is corrected soon, but until it is I can't really tell if the loop is seamless or not since everything skips at the end. I'm going to assume, for the sake of argument, that it's flawless. :D

Neon-Bard responds:

It is pretty short, huh? I have been so busy with school and contract stuff lately that I haven't really had time to just mess around -- I put aside time aside to have some fun, and this was the result.

Crystal Chronicles is one of my all-time favorites! I imagine that I'll listen to its music for the rest of my life. I remember your 'Tir Na Nog' track well, in fact, I'm surprised that I haven't added it to my favorites (done and done). The looping thing has been bothering me. I've tried just about everything...alas, nothing is working. It loops perfectly everywhere else. Odd!

Many thanks for listening! :)

It's no secret that I love well made short loops. Great job :D

Neon-Bard responds:

Thanks for listening LSD! Glad you like it. :)
