Reviews for "The Conquistadores"

Great one!

Listening this one for the second time, I realize it has quite the memorable melody, powerful sound, feels like a Roman time scene going on in here. :D

samulis responds:

Glad you like it... and the Romans. :)


This is awesome. Sounds like James Horner's Zorro scores. I especially love the castanets!

You should consider adding more to the top Horn line. Maybe some countermelodies with trombones and tuba? Also, some of the faster horn notes sound extremely unrealistic- try changing to a staccato sample for those 2-3 notes?

Also a solo trumpet do your song some justice. Very Spanishy.

Props, dude.

samulis responds:

Thanks for the great feedback,

If I come around to working on this piece again, I will be sure to take your ideas into consideration. It should be fairly doable and will make it much better sounding. :)

Thanks again!

Good song

Nice song that creates some very intense images in my head.
Some "conquistadores" arrive at an yet unknown land, they are high and mighty and they want to conquer the land for their own good, not caring if other people already live there.

However, after a while the song does get a bit repetitive, but I guess that's only because it's so short and I'm listening to it the 4th time in a row now. ^^

Nice imagery. :)

It is a bit repetitive... If I have some extra time I might consider making a new arrangement of this that is a bit more adventurous (no pun intended).

Woah! Very nice!

Very professional sounding, and right from the get go I was very impressed by the instrumentation/ composition. These instruments are very distinct, and absolutely perfect for what I imagine you were going for. The leads, percussion, and other samples were just amazing.

This song has a nice, epic, Spanish feel to it, and I can't think of much that I would change about it.

Overall, this is really great and professional sounding as well!

Hey there,

Thanks for the review. I always try to get the feel I want across as effectively as possible.

As a side note, the instruments are EWQL Symphonic Orchestra Gold.

Coming to save it all!!

Has a very dynamic feel as if watching three best friends ride together to save the day and get ready for a face off with the person causing everyone else problems as well which is pretty cool feeling on this one. The way the beat moves, gives you a feel of watching a close up of them all riding on horses or ponies here.

The drums feel very epic like and quite swell too which is nice. The trumpets play up a good tune and give a happy dynamic feel. The violins are classy and give a feel of this happening in time long ago as well.

Overall, very epic old time song.
