Something possibly presentable
« on: June 12, 2016, 17:13:33 »

Looks like I accidentally made something that sounds reasonable, so, might as well share it in a music-related location for once.

The composition made with a somewhat odd combination of "90-s game soundtrack" restrictions, that is, it doesn't use instrument envelopes and in this case is limited to 8 channels (mostly for the sake of expediency and, to a point, forcing a certain style).

Most samples are from kiarchive, one is borrowed from beyond_music.mod while space voice is actually from gm.dls.

Hare's the youtube version, but, as stated in the video description, there is a small bug at the end of patterns 1 and A that is only present when it's played in Fasttracker (via dosbox, sounds fine in MPT and Milky) that I was too lazy to try and fix before uploading the video:

It's not bad, but not great either. It sounds rather dull. Try varying the chord progression to not be the same in every single pattern - it sounds rather repetitive to me and for its length of three minutes there is simply not enough happening. The instrumentation is pretty nice, though.

An interesting response for it's actually the song's relative stability that was one of the reasons I was satisfied with the results. It sounded more logical and organized to my game-soundtrack-accustomed ears and this was envisioned as a looping background melody for something (although there is nothing specific - it was a rather quick, unplanned spur of the moment composition).

I have made more varied songs in the past but I guess I am not really good at transitioning and the sense of how long each part should be. Those either had some awkward transitions, sounded a bit like multiple clips stitched together or actually had things changing a bit too quickly for my ears, not in the sense of speed but in the sense of having a bit of time to appreciate a particular part.

Here's another similar track. Subjective quality evaluation is a bit lower but it's a bit less traditional.

As usual, the youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05j0tB8C-SI
