Re: Skjaldmær

Very good! I thought "this is really atmospheric and relaxing". Then it went all manic and then back to relaxing - phew! I think that counts as "epic" :D I also got a "spaghetti western" vibe at one point but that's probably just me :) Thanks! I guess it's where the Jaw harp comes in, at ~2:30? Tha...

Enjoyed this, very atmospheric build up. And that last section with the choir and birds is inspired :D
Thanks! They're supposed to be crows/ravens, and so evoke the image of Odin somehow :mrgreen:

Skjaldmær

Hi all, I just posted another track: https://soundcloud.com/lminiero/skjaldmaer "Skjaldmær" is the Norse name for the so-called "shield-maidens", female warriors from the Viking folklore. I've always been fascinated by Norse mythology and Vikings in general: you can definitely see I've been watching...

Re: Spitfire Audio free sample libraries

I did try installing Airwave some time ago (on my Fedora 31), but IIRC I had many troubles getting the right VST headers (the ones officially available were not the ones the project expected), and I eventually gave up. Now that I got LinVST working for Spitfire, and that festige/dssi-vst work for o...

Re: Spitfire Audio free sample libraries

Hi @Rainmak3r, I would 100% recommend Airwave over those. It's a lot more seamless and is pretty fast as well! If you're on Arch, you can install it with yay -S airwave-git I did try installing Airwave some time ago (on my Fedora 31), but IIRC I had many troubles getting the right VST headers (the ...

Re: I'm Getting Better

What's wrong with the title? Is it a reference to something bad that I am naive about? I'm a bit of a media hermit, so I don't follow movies, TV, or even contemporary music. Should I be worried? :? No no nothing of the sort, I just saw a post titled "I'm getting better" and I was afraid something h...

Re: Rated Blue - "Turnabout" (2020 REMIXES)

Whoops, I must have missed this thread... I only listened to "You", so far, and of course I love it: I'll listen to the others tomorrow! I don't know why I keep on hearing Robby Steinhardt's voice when you sing: I mean, listen to this , I definitely hear the resemblance. Of course it's a huge thing ...

Re: I'm Getting Better

Dude, you have to think about the titles you choose: I saw the post title and you got me worried! :lol: Fun track, I particularly like the funky guitar! I'm glad you started playing with sfizz too: ever since Michael started using it in his VPO template, I've used it pretty much exclusively for all ...

Re: 'blast'

I like it! The beginning in particular reminds me of both The Killing Joke and The Sisters of Mercy, which is nice.

Re: The Weight of Idleness (Metal track)

Nice job! The rhythm guitar sound reminds me a bit of Michael Romeo's first solo work (The Dark Chapter). I particularly like the sound of the clean guitar arpeggios! The bass is nice and fat too. Maybe just the solo is a bit drowned, though? Or at least I would have increased the volume a bit, whic...

Re: Call of the 80s

I'm really liking that synth part about 0:20 in, and your shredding is cool too. Also, I didn't know fender made guitars with Floyd Rose's in them. Good stuff. The synth was rendered using the "Trem Preset" from the "Will Godfrey Collection", and I love it too! The Fender model you see is an HSS, w...

Yep. Works for me :D

Hi! Bruh!! Shred much!!?? Hahaha :lol: I like arranging and orchestrating stuff more, but from time to time, why not? :mrgreen: Great guitar work and arrangement of the whole song!

Re: Call of the 80s

I also enjoyed the video. The 80's graphics are cool. They remind me of my childhood. It's always nice to see the guitarist's fingers in a video. I get frustrated when the cameraman for a music video just wants to show the facial expressions. Let me see the fingers! Thanks for listening, Alan! Yeah...

Very good, love the "cheesy" video - great fun :D Nice soloing!
Thanks for listening! Too bad I didn't have a green screen or the video would have been even better :lol:
