  1. I'm SO happy I stumbled upon this stuff. This is the kind of stuff I've always wished I could create. The sound is so perfect, real, eerie, fits the game amazingly. I can't wait to hear more!
  2. I really like the arrangement, a lot. I don't like the beginning strings though, I think they sound too... I guess "synthy" and washed out or something. I'd also like to hear some more changes in dynamics
  3. It sounds like some horrible event took place in a town, all the pokemon gone or dead. and a trainer is walking round the ruins of a gym, maybe where he won his first badge, maybe his last, maybe the one he was heading to before whatever the tragic event took place. I can see him walking up to different places, like a shattered boulder where maybe his raichu got thrown against with such a force it broke, or a crater where his sandslash dug under his enemy and got a 1 hit KO, bringing the match back to a tie. Then when the kalimba comes in, I can see the trainer coming across one of his own pok
  4. Ah, I really like the Asian sound. I have to agree though, there needs to be some reverb in there. Also, you might try changing that one flute sound to a dizi or something. There are some pretty good samples online that sound pretty realistic. When the one you used gets exposed, such as in the middle section, it just sounds kind of boring I guess... Also, it would be cool to add some Chinese opera gong hits in there somewhere! lol I LOVE those little gongs! Well I enjoyed listening!
  5. I hope I'm putting this in the right place... Im not really familiar with these forums If anyone is interested in mixing some kind of drumline piece, which would be AWESOME for almost any video game song, I'd have to suggest VDL (Virtual Drumline) for the highest quality sounds. I bought it for nearly $200 dollars so that I could write my own drumline shows, and make audio samples of my real life show music so I could hear it and play along, and I always meant to write out a complete piece for a typical indoor drumline setup (marching drums, marimbas, vibes, xylo, auxillery percussion, etc) us
  6. nah, more like this, but with Pokemon music this video focuses more on battery stuff, but I'm sure a lot of the pokemon music could be made into some really cool pit arrangements
  7. I'm surprised I haven't seen it yet, but I think there should be a remix of some of the pokemon battle and main themes as if being played by an indoor drumline, with marimbas vibes xylo xynth and snares tenors and bases.... If I had a computer capable of supporting good programs, I'd attempt it myself- unfortunately that isn't the case... Pokemon music is so similar to something that would be played in drumline, or by a marching band. There's room for some FUN marimba solos
  8. This is nice! I'm not even worried about it not turning out amazing. As for the "Mario theme" part, I like it, but I don't really like the part right at 1:16. Maybe take out the (1) te te 3, and put some little run or something instead... And I just have to say that I swore I heard "Kakariko Village" in there, lol
  9. Hmmmm, I found one more thing that I think could use a little attention. In the beginning, at around :11, some of notes sound a little too harsh. Maybe you could change up the dynamics there, (1 la li 2 -- li 3) instead of (1 la li 2 -- li 3) The crescendo doesn't have to be much. And actually, you could do the first two measures of that similar pattern the first way I mentioned, then do the 3rd one the 2nd way (the way it already is), then do the last one (1 la li 2 -- li 3). It doesn't have to be that exaggerated of course, it just needs to feel a little more natural in my opinion, and h
  10. The percussion sounds MUCH better, lol. And I like the new part at 1:27, but the rhythm at 1:37 is a little confusing to me. I had to replay the section a few times before I understood what happened, lol, but maybe thats just me. In case it isn't just me though, maybe you could add a few accents or something to make the rhythm sound more solid. I like the background piano towards the end of that phrase too, it sounds like a vibraphone part I played in a drumline show a few years ago, haha. I wonder though if you could add some dynamics to it around the note changes to make it even more intere
  11. I agree that the percussion seems to have too much reverb. But the biggest problem I have is that in the guitar solo section starting around 1:05, some of the notes are just too soft that I feel should be brought out a little more. I also don't really like how that section repeats. It doesn't feel to me like adding the percussion to the phrase made it different enough for a section that sounds so much like improv. Maybe you could add another instrument in there to carry it along and give the sense that it is building. It may make the crescendo at the end of the phrase feel more...fitting. Als
  12. I really like this! I never really liked the source theme honestly, but this is nice, especially when it gets jazzy in the middle. Its awesome that you are able to make the repetitive original theme last so long without it wearing down. I can't wait to hear the final thing!
