Not nearly as "epic" as I wanted it be. It was supposed to be a Royal battle theme, but I kinda dropped the ball on epic somehow. I used some pirate song on the net for inspiration, but still fell short. The composition itself wasn't inspired by anything, just the me wanting it to be epic. Oh well! I'm okay with this. I can only compose like me.

Edit: 4/23/2016 Added the chords to the harpsichords. Well technically, they were "there" but they were silent because I thought they sounded odd at first, so I muted them. Now they are back.

Also added a chord to the saxophone.

Made in FL Studio 12.

I don't really know the genre because of the harpsichord and the saxophone. Otherwise, I'd go with classical.

I didn't know what song to review from you, especially since most of your recent ones are under a minute, so I went with this one!

I really like the medieval feeling in this song. This would be the kind of song that would play in a castle, so I'd say you succeeded on making it sound royal like your title suggests. The harpsichord really adds in a variety that's needed in this song. The saxophone bit (0:55) is really interesting to listen to, with the bells and all in the background that's with it. It might not make it sound "epic", but at least it adds to the castle-y impression and I like it ^^

Alright, now the flaws. I know it's not everyone that can afford or get good samples, but I would really like to hear a version where the brass-like instrument in the beginning and @ 0:37 sounds a bit more clearer and better. The rest of your samples sound good and they're alright, it's just this one that bugs me. The drums, though a bit repetitive, really sound great in this. I really like how you can easily notice the details in them, the smaller sounds don't get drowned out. So that's a plus.

The part @0:50 hurts my ears because of the sounds being too noisy and crushing each-other. This could be caused either by saturation that happens when your song's volume level goes above 0db, or, it could be caused by pushing way too much noises into a limiter. If you use a limiter, friendly tip, don't. Compressors are way better and they don't cut off louder sounds, they simply just gradually lower the louder noises the way you want them. Unless you do side-chaining, try learning and using compressors, they really help. Also, a trick when doing a song, I find it really easy to mix and master my song in the end if I put everything at half the usual volume in the beginning (Nothing goes above -6db). It makes it easy to add effects, EQs and boost frequencies without going over the dreaded 0db. It gives you some leeway.

Oh gosh this review is getting long what. I've listened to your song through this whole review and now it's basically impregnated in my head >.< So yeah, to recap, I really like the castle-medieval theme in this song, the drums are really great and just a bit repetitive, maybe try and get a better sample for the brass instrument? and the part @0:50 needs a fix. I wish we could edit reviews so that I could change this review if you end up fixing it, but oh well. Sadly, only a 3/5, mostly because the saturation/sound crushing part.

So, yeah I hope this review was helpful! This might be the longest review I've written on a one-minute long song to this date x)

(Sigh) I wrote a really detailed response to you for this. It was possibly even longer than the review! I responded to each paragraph.... To everything that was relevant....

but somehow, I didn't post it...and I don't remember I don't want to type all that again Everything happens for a reason, so I guess it was for the best. BUT I will say, All in all, thanks for the review!

I'm feeling like i am in the medieval ages after hearing that song

ClimbLadders responds:


It does. I've never heard it that way until you had mentioned it.
