  1. Thanks! ...but almost everything in this track is live. The only software tracks are the sawtooth lead, choir pad and strings
  2. Here's the final product by the way, in case anyone is interested: Just let me know when we need to send the .wav over
  3. Good to hear from you, dude. Our track is ready to go as soon as you're ready to take it.
  4. Dude you basically just summed up my mantra for the band. I've written some derivative charts for us before (and will continue to occasionally), but my main goal has always been to focus on a fun and unique sound while also digging deeper into the material. It always feels good when someone acknowledges that, so thanks.
  5. I believe Señor Jankerson was referring to us specifically. Tracks meaning instrument tracks, not songs.
  6. @Gario Perhaps we hear any given arrangement so many times in writing, learning and playing that things like that become skewed haha. Something to work on then. edit: both this account and Mannywing are me btw. I just popped in with that one since Hank flagged it down
  7. Wow, thanks for the in-depth response. Gonna mull this over with @HankTheSpankTankJankerson - get back to you later this week?
  8. Hey everyone! Just kinda looking for some general feedback on this one, as it won't be getting any more edits. Thanks! (also BIG shoutout to Marc P. for comin through with the Horn section) Sources: Bonetrousle Dating Start! Dating Tense! Dating Fight!
  9. We're still in for Buoy Base Galaxy. Currently disabled though, as we are in the process of relocating the studio and replacing certain gear. I will touch base when we are up and running again.
  10. Hey. LBC here with some more Undermemes, hot off the press. I think this was some of the most fun we've had recording! This arrangement is particularly wild and definitely ran the risk of getting way out of control, but I think we managed to hold it together. Any feedback is appreciated. Stay saxy my friends! Source
  11. FARMER DAN EMERGES Gonna have to go with Daniel on this one. Can you elaborate on what you mean by this, or pick out a specific spot for me?
  12. Hey everyone! This is a brooding and ominous arrangement of Undertale's Waterfall. We've never written or played anything this heavy before, so any constructive feedback is appreciated! YOUTUBE VERSION WITH FANCY ORIGINAL ART AND VISUALIZER Source Cheers!
  13. Probably doesn't help that the guitar and rock organ are mixed equally low towards the end haha. What I was hoping for (and what I think we achieved) was a cathartic wash of colors brought in by the key change. Either way I'm glad you liked it! We're pushing really hard to get more Undertale material out the door.
  14. Hey everyone. Here's an upbeat alt-rock cover of Undertale's Stronger Monsters. Music video! We won't be making any edits at this point, but criticism is still appreciated Source
  16. Hey everyone. This is a latin/jazz arrangement of a Castlevania tune that probably goes under the radar most of the time (I hadn't even heard of Rondo of Blood before this). We finished it several months ago, and probably won't be submitting it, but we wanted to post it here for general feedback anyways. Cheers! Youtube version with fancy visualizer and pixel art Source
  17. I see it more as cautionary advice. In my experience, people want direction, and sometimes gauging interest alone isn't enough to get something started. Learning how to further express and articulate your ideas will go a long way! I know you have good intentions. So don't give up*, and best of luck with Earthbound! *is this where I make a Determination pun?
  18. Ok, let me back the truck up. To clarify: LongBoxofChocolate is a band led by myself and @HankTheSpankTankJankerson...I may start using a personal account to avoid future confusion. No, we are directing our own album project - independent of whatever is or isn't happening here. We created and submitted our plan/concept in the first half of December. I did not want to make a thread because most of our writing is done in-house, and recruiting is something we'd like to handle on a per-song basis, as the need arises. That being said, I commented here thinking that people might like to know that something was being worked on since OP's idea did not seem to be getting off the ground. I may have made the message too cryptic in my own excitement, but I don't feel that it was inappropriate to post here. Hopefully this clears things up.
  19. What's the problem? The LBC Undertale album is happening regardless of what goes on in this thread. My co-writers and I have already completed 6 arrangements and will be closing in on 10 very soon, with more to come. I've enjoyed your Undertale work, but I don't think its existence disqualifies anyone from making anything else \_(ツ)_/ ...unless you were commenting on the state of this thread specifically haha. Good use of the word flounder.
  20. I'm really digging this. My only "complaint" is the key change at 2:15. It works really nicely, but...I feel like there's room for more exploration before simply going up a half step. I realize Hopes & Dreams does it the same way but it still left me wanting a little more. That being said, this is still very enjoyable.
