Hey! This here is an arrangement of a couple of Guild Wars 2 themes composed by Lena Chappelle. These are the tracks in question:


There are also some nods to music in the soundtrack composed by Jeremy Soule, so credit goes to him too!

I'm a huuuuge fan of Guild Wars 2 and its soundtrack, and I thought it was about time I made a tribute to it. This uses FL Studio 11, East/West libraries, and Omnisphere. 35 hours of work went into it.

I hope you enjoy it! Credit goes to these two wonderfully talented people for their live recordings in this track!

It's amazing! Oh.. (Interestingly, Step responds me or not?)

I'm just wondering why this song is so epic?

Step responds:

I dunno! You tell me!

Haha, thanks for reviewing.

Ahh, Guild Wars 2 music, still as nice as ever. By chance, could you do remixes of the Super Adventure Box songs, if you could find them? Or the old Lion's Arch song, that still plays in some personal story instances?

Step responds:

Hey! Thanks for reviewing and sorry for the late reply.

I actually went ahead with your suggestion and made an arrangement of a SAB song (the Shortcut Wurm theme in W1Z2). I'll be releasing it very soon!

Thanks again.

My favorite theme from my favorite online game has been remixed by my favorite Step. FML.

My heart beat brightly and softly at the long intro. The first crash startled me tho. The second half was fantastic.

5/5 lumps of aurillium.

Step responds:

Ah geez, sorry for taking FOREVER to reply to this.

Sorry about that sudden transition hahaha. I spent a while trying to get it to sound smooth but at one point I was just like "you know what? Screw it, let's make it all sudden and scary".

Thanks for dropping by. I give this review 10/10 auric dust.

This is a really nice song that flows well from one part to another. The only thing I noticed was the infamous part at 2:14 which changed the mood completely. It feels like the parts before and after that point could be 2 separate songs. But that's just a nitpick.

Great job!

Step responds:

Sorry for the super late reply!

Thank you very much for this review. Yeah, those two parts do sound quite disconnected, but I did have a reason for putting that there, which is based on what actually happens in the game whose soundtrack this arranges.

Thanks again!
