Maaaan, you´re killing it as always! Never failing to amaze since "What I See"!
Ok, so right off the bat, I´m a huge sucker for big airy pads and atmospheres, so you grabbed my attention in the first few seconds. Throughout the song you have a huge variation of sounds, all of them nice, but it does get a little confusing at moments. Such as 3:08 - a lovely example of a varied sound I don´t hear often in the Audio Portal, but one that managed to entertain and perplex. While the overall happy vibe sits nicely with the title, I couldn´t help feel that the song was a little harsh or gritty at times during the drops. It was hard to pick a favorite part of the song that I could look forward to in multiple playthroughs, except maybe from 2:00 to the end, but there are so many switch ups (for my personal taste) , that I would have trouble keeping up with it. But who am I to talk, my tracks are all monotonous loops.
In finale, I enjoyed the track, I will listen to it again, but not on a daily basis, you did a good job!
Holy fucking shit... this is beyond amazing, man!
Very deep the whole way, even though the synths initially sound as if they were coming from a far away place... the drums are perfect, especially the layer that starts after 0:11, though for a second or two around 0:40-0:42 it seems a little clashy with the rising synth (lead, i guess?) God, I missed your music. Please give me more...
Beautiful song! Very deep vibe...
I´ve only ever played an hour or so of Elder Scrolls on my friends computer, but the music here sounds better that I remember the original score sounding. I´m pretty interested in what instruments you used for this, because they all sound good (around 2:00 it gets a little too much for me, but otherwise they all fit in very nicely). Similarly, the trailer music fits the Elder Scrolls score I remember, but sounds more epic than this. Though I´m not too much into cinematic/classic sounds (i´m a b*@ch for synths), this sounded really cool and is something I would like to listen to in a game. Very nice!
Sorry for the misunderstanding in the R4R forum. I didn´t mean any harm by it.
Hey there SierraRising,
thanks a lot for your kind review. No reason to apologize for the misunderstanding in the R4R forum - these things can happen :)
Well the instruments that i have used here are Eduardo Tarilonte´s ERA II (medieval Instruments), ERA II - Vocal Codex (One of the many voices), Shevannai - Voices of the Elves (also one of the solo voices in here), Forest Kingdom II (the ethereal voice with the large amount of vibrato), Mystica Female Chamber Choir for the choir accompanyment at the beginning, Spitfire Audio - Albion One (doublebass - violoncello low strings ensemble patch for the very low string base at the beginning), Embertone´s Jubal Flute (The solo flute at the beginning) and Embertone´s Arcane (The lowest of the solo voices in here). Glad you have enjoyed my track. I am a huge fan of epic orchestral soundtracks, and the skyrim ones by jeremy soule are really so enjoyable to listen to IMO.
Thanks for leaving your thoughts here and all the best. Have a great start in a happy and creative new year!
Some variation or movement in the bass synth, or turning it down a little bit would have probably added to the song somewhat, but overall I liked it. keep it up!
It does vary a little bit, but too much movement would draw away from/muddy the melody. I agree that I need to push it back listening to it now.I may lower or change the bass synth. I see how it stands out a bit too much. One of those things where you need to give yourself a couple days after mixing something to actually hear it again.
5/5, the drop did not disappoint... wait...
Very nice track! The the piano and bell carried the melody very nicely and the bass synth carried the track the rest of the way. The drums felt a little dull at times, but nothing serious. Good work!
Thank you so much! It means a lot :)
Truly a beautiful track! I only wish it could have been a little longer. The piano seemed to stand out a little bit, but I liked that mostly. I can´t think of anything constructive to say, honestly. I love it.
I was kinda out of ideas and I didn't want to repeat stuff too much so it's quite short piece, yeah
anyway I'm glad you like it :)
