Yes, I know it's a little long to be a loop.

So, as some of you know; the musical part of music is not my strong suit... I normally rely on my sound design and technical knowledge to ensure my tracks are of good quality (by my standards). But, I decided to try and make something more organic to test my mettle, if you will. This was a personal challenge for me and I thought I'd share it with you guys c:
(To Miyolophone: Yep, there's a key change :O )

So, let me know how I did. I can take the criticism... *sniff* I can take it... ;-;

EDIT: Toned down the violins to make it a little less blaring.

Jokes aside, lemme know what you think. Cheers c:

Ah, good old FL Keys. It always has a certain sound now matter how you much you edit it. It's frustrating, really. But yeh, as for the piano ...erm... arrangement itself, its pretty good; I just reckon it would sound better with a better plugin. I used the 40-day trial of TruePianos and that was great! Im currently broke at the moment though so I'll probably have to save up a little, or get of my lazy ass and get a job. Seriously though, you should take a look. Cheers c:

I was planning on putting some money in for Kontakt5 since I tend to use acoustic instruments of several sorts in a lot of projects. Usually never finished, but oh well. Not to mention, however, Kontakt has a really nice piano suite as well as the ability to make/buy ambient pads and stuff for it.

Either way, I completely agree about FL keys kinda sounding like shit. Normally I'd use Nexus2 (Pianos are the only useful thing about it imo) but it's broke as fuck atm. So is Massive, but I'll fix it eventually.

So you decided to join me on a trip out of our comfort zones, huh? ;D
This is good! The chord progression was interesting-- not the generic dance progression that I see a lot nowadays-- and the rhythm was well-syncopated and fun. (Though the rhythm you used-- dotted quarter, dotted quarter, quarter-- is a common dance rhythm, so I think you could make this into a really interesting dance song if you felt like it.)
If you want to go even farther out if your comfort zone, try using another theme as well! It can even be the same chord progression, but then you have more material to cycle through and change.
I still wouldn't exactly call this a background loop, because it was so rhythmic and had clear energy, but this is still a really nice piece you have here... keep up the musical musicness, I like where this is going.
Oh, and the chord change was fabulous. Respect.

Thanks! I really appreciate the critique. I'm glad you liked it, and I completely agree it's not a great BG song, I really just had no other way to label it. Though, it being up-beat and all, might actually make a reasonable boss tune, idk.

Anyway, I'm really interested in improving my musical musicness. So if there was anything you wanted to share about any sort of musical techniques, I would greatly appreciate it as always.

As you said, and as far as this goes, I may make something of it. Or send it to mah boi, Karaplex/Windlux, since I kind of owe him something of the sort to collaborate on.

Anyway, thanks again. Cheers c:

I actually like this as a BG loop, it's very calming, it builds up a bit time to time while keeping a nice calm tone... Very well done, the piano helps it stay even, very nice loop!

Thanks, I appreciate that!
