    OT: another new track with Spiritual Winds.

    Hi all,

    I thought I would share this new track with you.

    It has Spritual Winds Dizi and Shakuhachi Spectrasonics Atmosphere (bass pads) and RMX for percussion along with some Apple loops in the middle also for percussion.
    Sectrasonics Atmosphere also for the strings.
    It is called The Emperor's Daughter.

    Please note that I cannot post a direct link as I use the Wimpy player for music on my site. You will need to scroll down to see it.

    Thanks again

    I am amazed that on a pro forum I have to almost draw a map, surely folk can navigate a website by themselves? I never get problems on other forums!

    Hi Argitoth,

    Thank you for listening, and sorry for forgetting to say that I had not put it in New compositions.

    I will tweak the strings as I just played them as chords, maybe they are a bit heavy as chords? All of the percussion is loops. The deeper drums are from Apple World Loop library and the other is different section of loops fron Stylus RMX.

    Maybe the bass pads are interfering with the string frequency?

    Can any confirm that for me. will take a tweak to this a bit later.

    I have made more twekas to the original and now have a shortened version without Percussion.

    Hi Argitoth,

    Interesting comment from someone who needs to hide behind two identities.

    And certainly is not a constructive comment about the track posted, just a vile rant at my kit and composing style.

    Yes I do have loops. I have heard many of them used in TV and film and to be honest I don't care what you think about loops or anything else.

    Well you don't need to be rude about the track or the kit I use.

    For the record the only loops in this track are the percussion. Originally from Apple loops and Stylus RMX and now in the final version just Stylus.

    How can you really create something amazing if you don't know how to create your own sound? How can you develop as a composer and as a sound designer?
    A little harsh there dude

    I agree.

    There are constructive ways to communicate criticism.

    I deal with conversation in this virtual world by trying not to 'say' anything to anyone that I wouldn't actually say in person.

    If I don't like something, I think it's best to either keep quiet or attempt to put a positive slant on it.

    Especially when you read his earlier posts in the thread. Rude people bug me. If the piece is bad then say so. don't bitch about someone else's studio kit.

    Elan's earlier post on the original version:

    Some what a change in attitude.

    -Between 2:16 and 2:19, is that passage midi programmed or is it a pre-recorded passage?
    -It sounds like the strings are hard panned to the left and sound badly equalized, but I do like what the strings are doing.
    -The ending feel kind of cut off, but it loops really well. That's a bonus for game music.

    Overall feeling:
    -I could hear this in an RPG, a movie, or maybe even a strategy game. I'd like to hear what you feel it could be used in. The mix of instruments is great, very ambient, but active at the same time, good background music.
    -I hear lots of originality in this piece such as the electronic percussion and the fact that there's a very limited use of hand percussion.

    Sorry, I didn't say much.
