    Viking Saga digression: Ode to Shazbot

    Hi guys

    I was so inspired by Shazbot\'s Viking saga that I had to just RIP HIM OFF! hehe, well, not exactly. But I did like his music enough to create one along similar lines. I\'ll say this here, so people don\'t listen to the demo and freak out. I like to include parts of the melody, maybe instrumentation, a motif, SOMETHING, that will remind me of the piece that inspired it. So if the beginning sounds very similar, GOOD! (It\'s only for a few seconds anyways). That said, here is my totally viking, totally inspired, ode to shazbot and his passion for viking sagas:

    Edit: I should mention that this piece is done MOSTLY with GPO. There are some other non-GPO things in there. Here are the instruments for the curious:

    [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Naw, actually for some odd reason I can\'t set this pc to download and play music without it buffering every 2 seconds. I kind of gave up on it and use my work lap top to listen to new comps. Moday is a Viking holiday! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Hey Junk,

    Nice! What are you using for the voices (chorus)?

    Hi Styxx

    Voices of the Apocalypse. Although, the way I used them in this does a real injustice. It\'s just that, incorporating gigastudio stuff with \"non-gigastudio\" stuff is a real pain in . It\'s like a 10 step process that takes a real long time and frustrates me, so bla. The VotA library is AWESOME!! Much better than the demo might have ya think.

    Should I be gloating about how wonderful VotA is in this forum? hehe
