Yo, I'm back with a new thing. This is also my entry for this year's NGUAC auditions.

Made in about a week and with lots of love as always, this thing is exactly what my profile description says about my stuff. Weird amalgamas of orchestral, chiptune, synths and that kinda schet. Chord progression is not the best, but it's enjoyable nonetheless. Not sure if I handled the "climax" part very well, but it sounds pretty cool and epic for me, and I'm happy with it. I hope you're happy with it too :^)

Anyways I really hope you liked this piece and had fun listening to it, and see you next song ^-^

It gives off such happy vibes! I love it.

Está hermoso
Esta divino
Esta re bello
Los synths son en verdad únicos
Los 8-bit sounds se acoplan bastante bien
Los pads, y deep souds le dan un toque bastante hermoso.
Esto no es chipstep, es un cinematic épico
Para ser usado en una película o un juego :)

China meets Owlboy. I like it!

Nice track!
You mentioned not being sure if you handled the 'climax' part well and I have a few tips for you. I think part of the issue is due to over using reverb and reusing the same melody a little too often before the climax without variation.

For the reverb, often, less is more. Learn to mix clearly and precisely (try mixing in mono, it really helps) and you'll need less reverb. This means that when you DO use reverb (like the vocal synth in the end) it will really wash over the track and create depth and drama.

For the melody, since there are no modulations or changes, it doesn't stand out. What you could have done is had a few notes change in there somewhere and maybe changed the rhythm up. The 2nd note is always the longest. What if you made the 1st super long, so long as to add a beat before the 2nd note but cut out the last beat from each bar, even from time to time or in the first one?

Hope this was helpful. I really like the chiptune sounds in this, they blend well with the rest.

AlbeGian responds:

These tips sound pretty interesting and viable, I'll certainly have them in mind. Thank you a million MR!

Lovely stuff as always Albe. I loved how much you branched out with the 'instruments' on this one.
