I have started creating my own music not to long ago. What inspired me to make the kind of music I do was might and magic 6 and heroes of might and magic 2. I am looking for some reviews and some advice. In addition, some ratings. I have a couple songs posted on my site.

A scale from 1 to 10, and i'll not take the sudden ends into consideration since I guess they aren't final from the demo name http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Overall it would sound better if the singers didn't sound so much as some PC program singers, guess that is what they are.

Save Tara Demo
5, I personally think you are having a great beginning, but after some time it gets boring and to the brinch of annoying that the notes all the time go >. >. >. I've forgotten the names of the signs, but I guess you know that I mean hard and fade away with a sudden end... To much of that and to repetitiv in the end.

Forever Lost
9, the only thing that makes it go down to a nine is that it needs that last magical touch... the one that it's impossible to catch by meaning to catch it and impossible to define http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif so mostly as good as it can be.

Tara's Theme

Doesn't work http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

The Ruins of Felicia
(beginning 8) overall 8/9. It must be noted that I'm a base player, so I would like it if there was a bit deeper and more room in the base voices... else 50 sec is a bit to little to really get an opinion of the music...
I'll check out the first ones now.

The Dramatic War:

Beginning 6. It's a bit to week. After the beginning it gets on to 8, but again it's to short to really get a hang of the music, but it could sound like you later should watch out for reepetitivness.

A Hope to Survive
This is so short that it mostly just is a beginning... but it sounds like it could get close to a 10 but with a 9 beginning http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

The Stronghold Battle
Again I find the base voices to week at the beginning, but just a touch, and I must again remind you that i'm a tuba player, so it is very possible that it's only me... else the short piece I heard is about 8, and to short to really get an opinion of...

Keep up the good work http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Really great music!

For just normal music it scores a big 9, but if you had put it into a PC game whit the right atmosphere it would score a big 10!

Stronghold:

You use too much reverb, allso the drums can be higher in volume.... Else a nice song...

Justice

don't know what Reverb means... I'm only accustomed to the horn terms and they are mostly in Itlian http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

But I agree whit the drums...

To be honest, although I have been making music for quite some time, I am stil la rookie at this. I cannot read music, not do I have any music background. Basically when I create a song, it comes straight from emotion. As for reverb, I agree, I do use a lot of reverb, and it seems to cancel out a lot of instruments. In addition, it also limits the max loudness to lower rates. However, still learning as I go... I appreciate the feedback.

In addition, this is the new song I am currently working on for my new soundtrack. It is a demo right now because I haven't completed it.

Why do they all stop http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

Tara's theme, finally listened to it, is great, but the passing from each voice, tona, to the next should be a bit less sudden and more floating.

Bailor's theme, the only thing that I can think of is that the waves should sound a bit less mechanical and in real life there is a bit more time passing from each wave to the next, but I don't know if that will make the melody better.

Both great melodies http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I don't want to give more grades since you won't believe me if I contiune staying up in the 8 -10 s http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Unfortuneatly, all of these songs, despite Forever Lost are all demos. The reason why I am only placing the demos is due to bandwith and space limitations on my website. I am planning on geting a new host, and then I will post the full versions to most of my songs. In all I have about 2 and a half hours worth of music. Once I get my new site, I will also place a couple dvd quality versons to my songs. As in comparisson. Cd quality is 44000 hz 16 bit. DVD quality is 96000 hz 24 bit. MP3 is a far degrade from even cd quality.

I still haven't shifted my website to a new host. However, here is the extended demo to my second soundtrack's main song, "The Lost Fable." It is currently 4 minutes long, but there is still much work to do. In all, the song will be around 10-15 minutes long.

I have remade Tara's theme. It sounds more like a theme rather than a battle. The song consits of a piano, cello, contrabass, and various percusion aswell as a choir.

One more time, I finally remade Save Tara. The new version has a little bit of rock and roll in it. Most of you should enjoy listening to it over the old version.
