Modplug and audacity:P, all freeware.

I am getting reason though, thanks to VOiD, again.

I love audacity! Its hard to understand why people blow cash on professional audio editing software when they can easily download a GNU equivalent from sourceforge.
I'll be sure to check out Modplug as well, right now my only software synth app is SawCutter 1.0 (also freeware).

Never liked Audacity. It does it's job somehow, but lacks a lot in usability. For occasional use it's probably good as any.. but for serious work I rather use professional audio editor such as WaveLab.

Try EnergyXT .. it's not really free, but very good for it's price of you want Buzz alike modular sequencer http://www.xt-hq.com/  .. personally I find such modulary nice, but too cumbersome to use. Too much this and that before you actually can do anything..

I didn't like SoundForge when I tried last time (long time ago).. I don't know if it's any better nowdays. Back then it didn't have VST effect support, nor real-time monitoring of effects, which are vital for me.

Ok, two new tracks, done with reason, are up on my site www.html.explevi.com... I think the links might work this time, but the site isn't always up.

What do you think?

the first one "why wont you die", its very aggressive. maybe if you slowed the tempo down some. i like the bass, but the snare is way over the top. its too aggressive too. maybe back those two things down some. otherwise, very good job.

the next track, "sparkle". i like this track alot and i see nothing that needs to be addressed. its got a very jungleish (coin my own phrases =p) sound. makes me feel like im on a jungle trek. again, very good job.

looking forward to the "dogar and kazon track".

not bad, not bad at all. i like this tune, also. it remeinds me alot of the old castvania series on the nes. your right, midi sucks Wink cant wait for the mp3 version. again nothing wrong with this aside from the midi quality. great work Chrispy.

There wont be an mp3 version, its a bassoon duet. Thats why its under the classical music section of my site.

I play the bassoon you see. If I ever record it, I'll put it on my site just for you Tongue.

By the way... thank you Roll Eyes

Is it me, or do Dreaming, Welcome to the Stars, and Sparkle all use the same motives, especially the rhythmic ones?

If we consider them all as different versions off the same song, each certainly has its merits and touches. They would work well as different levels in the same game, due to their strong thematic relationship (like in Final Fantasy Tactics, where you keep getting the same themes, but modified dramatically to suit the situation).

The drums at 1:15 in Sparkle seem a little too heavy for sparkling, and it obscures some of what goes under it.

0:09 - 0:59 remind me of Super Metroid's Brinstar music.

No real metroid influences here..

Ya, my songs are very similar and its due to the basslines. They are very appegio based. Both sparkle and welcome to the stars have the same harmonic pattern too so they are especially similar.
Dreaming and Divine Origin (don't know if any of you remember that... or if I even posted it) have slightly different basslines. But they all sound the same. I guess its a style I'm developing.

Ya, I drifted from the name sparkle... now its sparkle+gavorkna..

I like the music...I don't suppose you could tone down the maracca(sp?) on sparkle a bit, could you? It starts to get obnoxious after a while.

Digging up this old thread to announce that I've just uploaded one additional song from his Chrispyness:

http://www.medievalfuture.com/void/Chrispy/Welcome%20to%20the%20Stars.mp3

My .02$ after a quick listen: I definitely think this is an improvement over his previous efforts, available in the same folder. If there's one thing lacking, it's a clear bass line to fill out the lower frequencies more.

I don't think so, therefore I'm probably not.

Chrispy has also made some amazing tracks for a game called Project Aqua. I have them on my server for your listening pleasure.

Shrine, the theme for the main temple:

"Party", which we decided would work as upbeat battle music.
