The trick to finishing something is to finish it even if you don't like the way it sounds.
From there, keep tweaking and adjusting things to make it sound better. The song is 'finished' but can still be improved upon.
Doing it this way helps prevent the 'it's not finished' mindset and helps to alleviate a bit of stress.
Give it a shot, you got nothing to lose by trying! :P
Thanks for the feedback, but as my master said, "Nothing sounds good until it does" - Seamlessr
I typically try to refine everything before I move on to the next "Part" of the song, and I sorta know what I want something to sound like, but I can't. Either because I don't have the knowledge, or I don't have the equipment (VST's, Plugins)
I guess I should stop trying so hard and not focus on one specific thing. And if I try so hard to make it perfect, I will never make any progress. So I need to force myself to get my ideas down and fix it later. "If you keep your pen in the same spot for too long, you'll just get a big dark puddle of ink" - Just Monika
Anyway idk why I spent so long writing about this, I don't really know what got to me but yea, thanks.
Dang man, that's some solid sound design you got going on here, all you're missing is the visuals and you got yourself a cartoon. :P
You also did a good job sifting through my million+ plus takes for Warton, made it sound like I knew what I was doing from the get go. haha
Keep it up!
Thanks! You did a good job. Well if you look at the video version it has visuals somewhat, but yes someday i hope it gets to be animated somehow. I would love it if people made small fan animated clips of scenes in the show. Would be cool. The "stupid tree" part has me laughing every time, it just tickles me. I wrote the character around you so you gave me some inspiration.
Well you certainly did try to compose a boss battle song...AND YOU SUCCEEDED! :D
I don't know why, but the dodoodododly doo-s and the other synth kinda give it an Egyptian feel, it's pretty cool!
If I ever end up needing a song for a movie/game where characters fight someTrash, I'll happily use this. Keep it up!
If you wanted to throw people off, I would've added a random metal solo at the very end. haha
In all seriousness, this is a more triumphant sounding remix while the original is more somber; not that there is anything wrong with that mind you.
Both versions have good pacing and distinct feels combined with enough variation to avoid repetition, as well they invoke invocations of invokedness. :P
Bang up job you two, keep it up! :D
Nah that wouldn't be very fitting or respectful to the original. I was trying to enhance it not murder it lol as much as I love metal, I know what works and what doesn't. Thanks!
You did a bang up job with this song man, can't tell you what I'm going to use it for 'cuz spoilers, but it'll make the scene a whole lot better. :P
After talking back and forth a few times this turned into a wonderfully diverse track with some cool instruments I can bob my head to.
Lookin' forward to working with you again someday.
Keep it up buddy!
Thanks! :) Looking forward to it.
Haha, it reminds me of some songs from the Ape Escape games.
This would fit perfectly as the soundtrack for a Boss Battle in a haunted house! Something about those long held piano notes that just sound...evil. :P
All of the separate parts are tied together with some nice progression and keep the song from getting stale. From what I can tell is that the song loops about twice, what you could do if you were feeling ambitious is to try adding an extra instrument, make a change to the percussion or add a new part to play on the second play to add even more variety to the song. It could make the song more enjoyable if you were to loop the whole sound if you were to use it in a game or something. Just a suggestion though. :)
Spooky stuff indeed, keep it up man!
This song sure seems to have...SHATTERED expectations! :D
(Thrown out the window)
In all seriousness though, great work finding a balance between a peaceful synth melody and satisfying beats/stronger synths.
As well on a side note, this song makes me think of an Angel soaring casually though the sky, only to start aggressively start head banging when the song comes on. :P
Your work seems to always emulate the era of awesome PS1 - PS2 style techno soundtracks, much to my delight. :P
My terminology for musical compositions is still a bit limited but I'll do my best to describe the best part for me. The large amount of variety you must work very hard to achieve in your songs is still greatly appreciated, and is backed with a familiar synth that is present throughout the entire song. This same synth becomes bolder and more powerful towards the end to help paint the story the title of the song creates in ones head.
(wooooooooo WOOOOH WAAAHHHHHHHH WHAAAAAH Wooooooooooooo)
Heh, but any who...this certainly is a cool song to listen to.
Looking forward to the next sundae. :D
As always, thanks for the review!
Actually, I'm still not that satisfied with the result since I had very limited time for the contest. Worked hard, yes, but only on the last day before the deadline. XD
Nice work with finding a good balance with such a variety of synths and instruments, it sounds distinct without sounding too cluttered. I especially like the part that starts around the 2:00 mark. :)
Check out the new Canon in D remix I just made. I made all of it. I also included Xtrullors drums he gave me and the rest was my synths and everything. The WA Experiments are mostly just from I'm the DJ app and aren't fully mine. They are 100% Royalty free but that won't help me get better in my music. I uploaded them for Geometry Dash knowing that it's ok to use.
