The Halloween Hunt The Halloween Hunt

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

nice

I liked the style of the game. The graphics were very well done as well as the great halloween colors. I enjoyed the long, but repetitive gameplay despite a few little problems with the menu, and enemy leveling up as you level up. Great game Ludy! Enjoyed it a lot- Drz

Hey even Maestro's need to go to doctors from time to time! In any case, I'm glad you liked the piece, it's one of my personal favs at the moment :D.

I realize you have a new piece out DrZ, and i've listened to it infact, but i've had no time to leave a review lately, i'll do so very soon I promise.

In any case, thanks for the review, once again i'm glad you liked it!

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

wow

This song is a very well done song and very cool sounding!

Positives-First off, I liked the opening with the strings and the bell, made it sound very serious and "ambitious", no pun intended. I liked the the beat of the song and the timpini, how do you do that, lol? I liked the violins that faded in later in the song. I liked the abrupt end and the bell ( again ). I also liked the usage of the horns, made the song sound epic, which is you style and really well done!

Negatives- Lone string section didn't without any of the background wasn't amazing but still probably your style- made the song sound just as good! If you call that a negative...Hah, lol.

Not to rectify yours but this song deserves a 5/5 and I'm smashin it down...

Also where do you get those samples, and what program(s) do you use to make this great stuff?!

Great Job again!-DrZ


MaestroRage responds:

Ah, that long string section... how I debated if it should be in there, again and again. In truth that segment was the most layered at first! However I decided that there should be a part calm enough to allow contrast between the vocal part near the end. So I actually cut off literally 5 layers from that segment and left it how it was.

As for the samples and programs, I used:

Fruity Studio 6 (Sequencing, mixing, major equalizing)
SoundForge (refining, ie. minor equalizing, effects, volume control)
MSPaint (For when I get bored...)

VST's I used (plugins that Fruity Studio's can use)

Edirol Orchestral
- Blaring horns
- The spiccato strings near the end
- Reverse Cymbol

East West Symphonic Gold Edition
- Cello Quick Stabs
- Violin Quick Stabs
- Double Bow Cello
- Solo Violin
- Timpini
- French Horns
- Cello Section
- Chimes (bells)
- Low Bass Strings

SoundFont Irene (I forget her last name)
- Vocal

I think thats all of it. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask. Thanks for the review DrZ, i'm glad you enjoyed the piece ^^.

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

nice

First off the beginning was pretty cool and the opening of the piano, I liked, however don't know if it was really a happy song or not, lol. There was also another problem where you might have tried to jam too many notes in one section with the piano. I thought it sounded pretty awesome until there was that stutter of notes by the piano. Anyway I liked it, not a bad start towards classical shtuff boomsquad- DrZ


boomsquad responds:

Well, it sounds fairly happy to me, ha ha. Listening back on it now the first piano section and the repeats, I was actually aiming for a bouncy sound and thought the decending flurry of notes sounded right. Though on other parts I guess I tried to make the piano fight too hard for the lime light.

In the future I hope to make a darker sounding song, again with pianos, hopefully work an ambient theme into it.

Later DrZ
