@  Fire Blazer : (18 March 2020 - 03:18 AM) hope everyone is managing ok...
@  kirant : (03 March 2020 - 05:41 AM) New challenger approaching!
@  xcrash1998 : (26 February 2020 - 09:55 AM) Not anymore
@  Mage Girl : (17 February 2020 - 02:33 AM) I can safely say I'm so far the only person to post to this shoutbox in 2020...
@  Fire Blazer : (24 December 2019 - 03:17 AM) naw, it's when the bots make collaborated efforts to crawl places, lol
@  kirant : (23 December 2019 - 05:20 AM) What do we do on Index Day? Give each other bots?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 December 2019 - 01:39 AM) LOL
@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)

Heh, well, first, just congratulations on this talent of yours. Believe me, I know just how hard it is to compose something of your own. (I wasn't made for it, unfortunately... >.<)


Well, if you allow my non-technical point-of-view on your songs...here I go! Feedback time! biggrin.gif


Hmm, first thing I noticed, you use Midi samples, don't you? Nothing wrong with them if you ask me, but they just sound...fake, maybe? I don't know, there are moments even I can hear trough them. <.<' Don't see this as an insult though, if you keep on training and improving, I could try helping you find and get some more professional sample packages. If you improve, with that style of yours, I would love hearing your songs orchestred-style. biggrin.gif Well, let me go for a small(?) review of each one of them.


Strings 1 - Sounds good. Simple song, it evolves pretty well, and stays low all the time. I can see the string effect you aimed for from 1:00 on, and yeah, it sounds messy with midi samples. (Even considering your PC's midi samples are better than my own's. XD) Well, it is classy, something I would see playing in a ball of sorts. smile.gif ...did I feel a slight stronger, and maybe influenced by asian music, style growing in the last 30 seconds? 'Cause I think I did. biggrin.gif


Strings 2 - Sounds quite like something out of a game's OST! Something like a merchant town! It has a little touch of arabia in it, I really enjoy it! In this one I barely had any problems at all with the midi samples. And honestly, that is the kind of song I would love to use in a hack, personally. XD It is good and charismatic, that is why. smile.gif


Oh! ...and after 1:42, it starts to grow into something closer to rock for about 20 secs, isn't it? The whole thing would sound good in guitars too if you ask me. wink.gif


....also, ever played "Azure Dreams" for the PS1? It did have quite a close style to the game's main theme. ...which is good, since I love that theme. XD


Strings 3 - Crescendo? Wasn't that how they call that kind of begging where things are slowly mounted over eachother and assembled togheter? ...oh god, I love those. >.> The beat keeping track of the rhythm does the right thing to pass a good mood for this song. It is simple, but structurally speaking, I *think* it is an advance if compared to the first one. Seems like a good music for a game like FE4, with huge maps and a lot of time to think in them. It is a good thinking song. With a tid of mystery. smile.gif


Synth 1 - Battle time! I could see that song for a battle theme, like those in old FFs. smile.gif With right to 99 of each item and all that. XD If it kept the beat for the whole time, the beat which came before the intro, it would be an amazing battle song. For now, it seems like a dungeon song for a game like Zelda. One of the darkest dungeons of course. smile.gif It has an interesting fake loop point, and the whole thing seems different at every second. My complaint on this one is that in some parts it feels too simple(I know that might be the effect you aimed for), and also that it ends somewhat abruptly. Like, out of nowhere it ju--



Anonymous - Short and sweet! Obvious evil theme appeal, I could hear that playing during a speech. A theme for a villain's villanic...words! Wow, and it is even shorter than my winamp said it was. smile.gif I don't know, I like where this one was going, but maybe it doesn't feel like a finished package. Not as accomplished as a song as the strings one, ya know?



Well, I think that is all I can say with my amateur ears. XP If you ask me, I fell in love with the complexity of Strings 2(Interesting song names. XD), and perhaps I would hold as my second favorite Strings 1, with Strings 3 right behind it. ...of course, I am biased for strings, so just ignore me if you may. XD



And if you allow me to check your influences... Gamming music, a lot of it... A more asian pace... Obvious touch from western classic too, something german in your first song... ...and for the second one, Tethys theme for the FE8! XD

I know the instruments aren't great. I use Finale PrintMusic, and as much as I'd love to upgrade to the full (which has AMAZING instruments), it's 300$.
Strings 1: I actually wrote the main part when I was about 7. 6 years later, it's this.
Strings 2: Glad you like it. I quite like how it came out. Also, the "rock" part is possibly my favorite part. I haven't, actually.
Strings 3: Sounds good, but any orchestra would stab me for writing it. Literally, each instrument spends at least half the song doing the exact same thing over and over again. But whatever, it sounds good, right?
Synth 1: I kind of meant for it to end abruptly. I really like the simplicity in some parts. The song keeps changing, but it's still the same piece, not a medley. I think this one is probably my best so far, although that may have to do with the uniqueness of the instruments.
Anonymous: It's actually the same thing in two variations. The faster one is the good side, or whatever, the slower is evil. Also, I left out the most evil part. It's from two pieces, which are both WIPs, but I can post what they have so far.

And yes, I know, I'm just AMAZING with naming my pieces XD. If you have any suggestions for any, I'm open. I'll try to get more up soon. I'm also trying to work the harp and woodwinds into it. I've actually found the harpxclarinet is very nice sounding and I'm working on that. Once I get on my compy with Finale, I'll try to get a few WIPs up.

I just discovered a WIP I'd forgotten about ohmy.gif It's only about halfway done, but whatever. I quite like this one. Harp, Piano, Violin, Cello, and Flute.

Just found this in a roundabout way; I was searching for downloads of String 7/8 (accidentally deleted them, happens I guess but shitsux) and here I now am. Honestly, I love your music- the complexity and layered parts of each song combined with the sheer sounds of strings and epic, nigh legendary overall sound mood/themes put me in mind of beautiful fantasy-esque songs, perhaps played for royal courts or such appreciators of fine music. They put me in mind of trains of such mythical thought I've had more than half my life now, and I love the songs the more for it. However, the first download link ( a zip) has apparently been removed from the host. Frankly, the thought that you've made songs and I haven't heard all of them is hugely disappointing. Would you mind rehosting that somewhere, along with any others you haven't shown yet but feel like showing?

Here's a sort of hodge-podge mixture of stuff: http://soundcloud.com/rewjeo
Not everything is in there (and much of what is is outdated), and there's some stuff in there which maybe you shouldn't necessarily be seeing yet, but, y'know, whatever. I'm too busy to deal with that and to really reply to that comment right now. Gogogo 16 hour schooldays.
