Hey You All!

The original had horrible mastering so I decided to redo it. I low-passed and hi-passed the HECK out of the track - http://acid-paradox.newgrounds.com/news/post/890169

I also made the chimes louder, deleted that really screechy synth, and the bass got a redux.

The whole 'remastered' part didn't actually take too long (like only a couple hours) but it was the perfect amount to give the song really what it needed.

As for the original composition goes, that would be the following.

[As seen in destiny]

—————————————————————————————
Originally it was one song, then got completely different then different again, and then... what you are now listening to. The original songs that evolved in to this are gone, but this song sounds really nice! The name 'Destiny' fits the majestic aura of the piece, and which was in fact the main reason in which I chose to name the track 'destiny'.

I always imagined making a song that was majestic, and was going to call it destiny. I always imagined the chimes, the choir, and the majestic aura. That song, I thought, wasn't in the near future. But, as it turns out, I was able to make it. The making of this song, since I said it was different songs before, was just about listening and adding what I though would fit. I actually had all the sounds play together (almost all) and made sure they fit, then sequenced. I don't know if I meant to make the song I had imagined, but it just turned out that way. I didn't think, "oh hey I'll make the one I've been thinking about for the last couple of months" but I just worked on a song and it turned out to be that one I had in my head as an idea.

Stuff on the components of the song :P
The bass-pad-wobble was the first instrument. I was experimenting with it, and finally came up with a baseline. Then I actually had a different melody on a different lead instrument, but quickly deleted that.
The trombone sounds really cool, and it is playing one note in the background, and also notes that go with the bass-wobble-pad-thing. The trombone's cutoff is a little bad though... I agree w/ Zelegon. The trombone, choir, and bells are what really make the song sound 'majestic'.
I actually originally had a harmony-melody, but even though i thought it worked, it was because it was drowned out by all the other items in the song. When I adjusted that, it turned out that it did not go with the song at all.

I like the atmosphere at the beginning. The instruments are a bit cliche, especially the “wau” bass at the beginning and the phasing synth that fades in at around :17. I think you needed a stronger transition into :32 as well. The piano at :48 gets a little buried in the mix. The brass eighth notes that fade in at around 1:20 are panned a little too far to the left IMO. The piece is very repetitive, and much of it lacks a strong sense of direction. I think you badly need some stronger melodies in this piece. I also found the way you balanced the volume levels a little wonky. At times, certain instruments are very quiet, like the brass hits at about the 4-minute mark, and the piano arpeggios at 4:48. The piece really didn’t need to be 6 minutes long, either. At the same time, the piece has a sense of continuity without much structural relief. I guess my main concern above all else is that it needs more variety. If you make a melody to guide the way, structuring your song might be easier. When you feel like you’ve made a melody-driven piece with more variety, PM me and I’ll leave a review. Until then, keep at it, man!

4/10

Thanks for the constructive criticism! I might add a melody in the future. Maybe in a bit...

Such really nice track, it gives me a "suspense" and "mistery" sensation, loved it!
In my opinion, the decay of the chimes should not cut suddenly, because that sounds bad and not realistic. You should fade out the sample in the sampler using the OUT knob or using an envelope,
and if you want a longer decay just add some reverb :P
Great job remastering tho ;)

Thanks a bunch! Glad the mastering was better, and I agree w/ the chimes, might try that.
