well this is yet another example why you're a maestro and I'm a dr. lol, great music as always, nice beat, nice pace, great instruments, good choice of words in your song description, lol. Overall great job as always! [)rZ

MaestroRage responds:

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!

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 ^^.

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.

I liked this, I don't know if it could be more clarified as a song than a very cool background ambience. I think personally if you were going for a more musical feel you would need a few chords and a standard tune. If you were going for a background or ambient type feel for a person who's lost in a desert or space (probably the best fit) then you nailed it. Nicely done, I like it and keep makin da tunes. Also, thanks for the tips, I will take advantage of them- DrZ

boomsquad responds:

I did infact start off wanting to make a more focused song, but then after messing around for an hour it started to turn into what you hear now.I liked it so I kept it. Dont have a clue why I listed it under classical either.

You can consider Fluid my second attempt at making something with a classical kinda feel.

Thanks for the listen and the rating dude. Hope to hear more stuff from you too.

you know dan, I've probably listened to most of your songs and I've never reviewed one of them because I found nothing wrong with any of them and all of them were very, very good. So you by reviewing this one song, do I find something wrong with it? Ha! no not at all! This review is written in appreciation for the time you take to make pretty damn good music and I enjoy listening to every song...every time. btw, really liked the milkman dan finale song and I liked this one equally! Nice job, great job, whatever lol, please keep it goin-DrZ

I'm not going to lie maestrorage, this in and of itself was awesome to listen to. Loved the horns, strings and especially the choir after that first major transfer. If I could only pick one problem that's that the song wasn't long enough, lol. I enjoyed it and sorry if this review is not as long as yours but what can I say...brilliant job here maestro! I'll keep listenin'-DrZ

MaestroRage responds:

Thats alright DrZonka, i'm glad that you enjoyed the song, i'd have made it longer, but then I couldn't make it as long as I wanted in the end :D!

Thanks for the review DrZonka, I appreciate it.

Cool but...

I enjoyed this piece, very cool and I liked the sounds however it sounded like it went from perilous to mourning to hopeful. Didn't really get the destruction part unless it this piece was after the real battle, anyway nice job, I like it- DrZ

Really Cool

This song style reminded me a lot of edgen, bill brown and some zimmer. I liked it overall a lot and, personally, the only flaw with it would have been to make it a little longer. Other than that, I enjoyed the song and hopefully you keep putting them out, great job-DrZ

MaestroRage responds:

A little longer you say eh!? I would have, but the contest said a short song, and this was already bordering on too long (1:40), it was supposed to be around 1 minute, so yes, I tried to make it as small as possible, this was the best I could do.

I'm glad you enjoyed the song, thank you for the review ^^.

Good Loop

I liked the fact that this could make an awesome loop, but if its purpose were to be a song, it was repetitive. Good job though- DrZ
