  1. Hey everyone, I recently decided to try to mash two Final Fantasy songs into one, cause I just thought it might end up cool. I'd be happy to hear any thoughts or feedback on it.
  2. Hey guys, I recently finished up this new little tune in the style of a retro video game. I'd love to hear any thoughts on it.
  3. Hey everyone, here is a cover of the main theme from Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. Hope you enjoy, I'd like to hear any thoughts on the arrangement and mix.
  4. Here is a new track I just put up, I'm open to any feedback on the composition and mix and such.
  5. Awesome, congrats! That will be a good fit I think
  6. This is cool, I absolutely love your synth lead, and the way it slides around while soloing is something else. The multiple sections of the song you have going on is pretty cool too. Not sure I would have picked up on any of the story behind it from just listening, but I always like a concept behind some music. Something I'd suggest is fixing up some of the MIDI for your drums, the parts sound good but very robotic at times. 5:36 is the one fill that really stood out for that, I think if you change up some velocities and timing it would help. But still, it's a pretty well put together project, lots of cool prog metal influences going on.
  7. I like this! I love the way you add new moments and elements to keep things interesting. That's what I always strive to do, and it seems like you've got a decent idea. The song has a pretty cool vibe, I could see this in some sort of fast paced boss fight or something.
  8. This is cool! I wasn't feeling it right away, but as it starts evolving I got into it. This really would sound interesting with traditional instruments I think. Definitely sounds like something that could be in an adventure RPG or something.
  9. Hey everyone, here is the newest track I've finished up. It's definitely out there, and I didn't hold back on the groove factor. I'd love to hear any thoughts at all, mix, composition, or overall impressions.
  10. I really like the composition here. The pirate one really sounds the part, with all the right intrumentation to my ears. One thing I'd suggest is try to loosen up some of the parts. For example the strings providing a staccato rhythm sound a bit rigid and robotic, a little bit of changing up velocity and timing on your Midi can go a long way. The space one is cool, the transition into the more driving part was nice. Somewhat unrelated but I thought it was a funny coincidence that I was literally about to make a thread about my new track "Journey to the Groovy Depths of Space" before I read this. The third one was cool, I really liked once the strings come in. Fills the space well
  11. Around 2:34 is one of the spots I noticed. Maybe even bringing the lead down just a touch would help. Just sounds a bit seperate from the rest.
  12. I like this, it really captures the feeling you expect for a strategy/battle kind of game. Not to mention some of it reminds me of the "Mars Attacks" theme by Danny Elfman, which is pretty awesome
  13. Didn't know what to expect when I opened this up, but I really dig it. Then again I am a weirdo fan of heavy music. Right off the bat I thought of some Strapping Young Lad/Devin Townsend influence, which is always a good thing for me. But aside from that the track sounds good! A few of the lead guitars kind of stuck out to me as being too loud or seperated from the rest EQ wise. Overall though a pretty solid mix, maybe some mids could be carved out for a cleaner sound. I'll have to check out some more of your stuff.
  14. Really nice! And great mix, the atmosphere of this track is really awesome. Draws you right in
  15. Here is the newest track I've put out, I'd love to hear some thoughts on it, composition, mix, or anything else.
