Re: Auld Lang Syne for Kite Guitar

While I was listening I thought "it's beautiful, but it sounds a bit out of tune", and then I got my answer reading the thread: microtonality! I applaud the effort, and you played it really well, but it's really and definitely not my cup of tea... The only microtonality I can tolerate is usually the...

Re: Mellow Life (my first track)

Welcome, and thanks for sharing this! Not my genre, but it's written and recorded nicely, looking forward to more tracks from you :)

Re: Robin Reddocke

Really beautiful arrangement, and you did a great work with all instruments! I wish I could play more than just the guitar... I was given a Chinese Dizi as a gift for Christmas, though, so if I force myself to learn to play that too I could get to two :)

Not that I know of, no. That said, the windows versions do work out of the box for me with LinVST, so in Ardour too for instance.

Re: The Fight Within

I had indeed been wondering where you were, as I hadn't seen any new post or comment from you for a while... it sucks to hear you were ill, but I'm happy to know you're fine now, and back with a cool song too! Very much a 70s track, which is always great :mrgreen:

I know you said you never played videogames, and yet this might be a good soundtrack for one :mrgreen:

Re: OnTIs-59 Title Screen Theme (Video Game Soundtrack)

Quite good! Reminded me of those mod-based themes of old Amiga games. This one in particular brought Flashback to mind for some reason.

Re: Hydrogen and Ardour going out on sync

I have never experienced this issue myself either prior to this project. I suspect because I tapped out the tempo and left it at 77.507 bpm. I've opened older Ardour projects that I have a Hydrogen file for and I haven't been able to reproduce that issue. Yes, it does seem to suggest a precision/ro...

Breaking changes in Hydrogen 1.x?

Hi all, I've been using Hydrogen + Ardour + DrumGizmo for a while, and I like how easy the workflow is. I use the Muldjord Kit in DrumGizmo, and found a Hydrogen drumkit plus an Ardour template for it: this means I can easily write patterns in Hydrogen, connect the MIDI outout of Hydrogen to the Dru...

Re: Hydrogen and Ardour going out on sync

I personally never experienced this out of sync issue, and I use Hydrogen and Ardour together quite often, as my drums are usually Hydrogen to write the patterns, and Ardour to record/play the MIDI output by Hydrogen via DrumGizmo. I have Ardour as the Jack master and Hydrogen as the controlled part...

Re: Naked God featuring Spamatica - Dystopian Dreams (melodeathindustrial)

Nice song, and cool solo! I personally don't think vocals are too effected or filtered, they sound like I often heard them in the genre. What sounds a bit lackluster are drums, probably, which might benefit from more presence. I'm definitely not the best to give suggestions (my drums never sound gre...

Re: Lost Horizon (classical / symphonic poem)

Wonderful work! Definitely shades of Holst in there. I agree with you about James Hilton's book too, one of my favourites. 8) Thanks, and glad to find another lover of the book! I love Holst so if something is here that reminds of his work, it's definitely a good thing :D Relistening to it myself I...

Excellent work here. Very convincing orchestration.
Oh, and yes - seems like soundtrack to me as well :lol:
Thanks! I'll have to watch the 1937 movie to see if it might sound good as a soundtrack there :mrgreen:

Re: Lost Horizon (classical / symphonic poem)

Wow, I liked this. I feel I don't have the vocabulary or Know How to really comment on the composition or production but it was very nice. One can hear artifacts of the sample library at some points but that has already been discussed. Since it was quite long I put it on as background music to my n...

Re: Distrohopper

The first part reminded me of a mix between Die Krupps and an Amiga game soundtrack: cool nostalgia at the very least :mrgreen:
