I always debate whether or not to cut off the intro to a song just to make it loop on Newgrounds. Really wish there was a better loop system. :x

Anyways, I created this track out of boredom just for the hell of it, so there wasn't much new here being explored. Also, it's another track in C minor. That seems to be my new go-to key when I'm not actively thinking about it. However, I decided to let this be a learning experience for me and used it to practice some very basic mixing skills. I didn't spend too much time with it since I'm busy with other stuff atm, but it was still a nice change of pace. I don't expect to see any real results with mixing practice for quite some time.

Made mostly with Halion Sonic 2's library, along with Famisynth.

In other news, I'm finally going for a degree in music composition this coming semester, so I'm excited for the new year. :3

I've only heard a few of your pieces before, but as I'm going through your stuff I find more and more reason to check out your even older pieces as well. I hope you find the time to compose and upload something new soon!

That's very gracious of you, thanks a lot! I've honestly been a little disappointed in how little I've produced in the past year, but college is very busy and I take it as seriously as I can. I'm debating tossing up the crude mockups of my unrecorded class projects, and I have a bunch of unfinished tracks that I've thought about finishing when I have the chance. Hopefully that'll fill out this year a bit once I finish the semester! :D

Wonderful! just what I was looking for! Can I use it in a game I will sell on Steam? I would make sure to mention you! Congrats :)

Deemo-R responds:

Sure thing, you can use this if you'd like. Thanks for listening!

I ~adore~ (boss) battle themes.

I'm not sure if this is a remix or if it's an original song, but I enjoy this quite a lot because
1) It's not repetitive (unless you count the loop, aha.)
2) It's not DARK (I love dark battle themes, but I think that there's a distinct lack of themes that have different flavours and personalities! (The main reason why I adore all of the boss themes from Undertale, for instance, is because of their varied and novel sounds and structures and meanings and feelings.))


In other news:

The only reason why I didn't give you five stars is because I felt as though parts of the song were not fully expounded upon; I enjoyed the entire song but felt as though a number of parts could have altered the notes ever-so-slightly in order to create both more range in the local part and to also further the actual emotion of the song.

Deemo-R responds:

Hey, thanks for taking the time to review! This is an original song I did - I've never worked on a remix that I liked enough to share with people. I also enjoy battle themes with character a lot, as those made up a large portion of my entertainment experience growing up.

I've always had a propensity to fall into the "medley effect" whenever I freely write battle music with no muse. As of late I've seen where some of that issue stems from, and I may be tackling more classical forms for a while to help me work on "development" skills. Perhaps it's just a phase, however.

Thanks again for reviewing! :)

Have another 5. I really liked this, the mix sounds great, it's always nice to listen to your compositions. I like the bit from 1:40 to 2:06, the bass reminds me of the SNES Final Fantasy games. The organs in this song sound really nice too

Deemo-R responds:

Thanks ILG, that means a lot! I actually stuck with one organ this time around since I wasn't trying to spend too long fiddling with the track. I was even about to write some small solo sections, but decided to throw those out since I felt they were going to eat up my time and push the song past its welcome. The bass part at 1:40 came from the sketching phase, where I initially wrote this as an entirely 8-bit piece with a very active triangle bassline. Though most of it got thrown out, I wanted to give the bass at least one spot to break out from parroting the guitar xD

I'm glad you enjoy listening, the feeling is mutual! Thanks for reviewing again! :D

I really like this track. Very catchy. Kind of reminds me of some tracks from the Mega Man X series. You have some very good, catchy ideas here. If I had one suggestion, I would say throw a very light compression and a maximizer (set on about 25 or 30 with a -0.2 db output on it) on your stereo output track to bring up the overall level and give it a little more punch. Other than that, your arrangement and mix sounds GREAT! Keep up the good work. I look forward to following your work. 5 Stars!

Deemo-R responds:

Thanks a ton! I'll take your advice for the output track in mind for when I try mixing another piece. I've been historically awful with using compression properly, so I tried to avoid using it where I wasn't absolutely sure this time. I'm trying to move through the steps slowly to get a proper handle on them. :)

Thanks so much for the review and follow!
