In Topic: Canthan arrangement(s)/composition(s) suite

I enjoyed this composition but it sounds a little plain. It's hard to describe, because the music style you use is familiar to me.

You're familiar with the original Canthan theme right? I love how the music "sweeps", echos. Its energy rises and falls in a way that makes me think of ocean waves. I want to be swept away.

Still, not bad. I wouldn't mind hearing the HQ audio if you get the chance. ^_^

Hey, thanks for the feedback! I know what you mean regarding Factions' theme sweeping, I think, and part of the problem is that I haven't really figured out how to crescendo on this keyboard without modifying the attack rate of the notes. I.e., by increasing the attack duration, when I press a note on the keyboard, the note builds up until it reaches its peak. So when I assign an instrument to a channel, I can change that instrument's attack rate (this will affect all notes on that channel), but I'm not yet sure how to just assign a crescendo to a section of the piece, in fact I don't think my keyboard has that capability. Heck, this is why I didn't include cymbal swells, which were in the original Factions theme and would have helped make the piece "sweep".

I do think that since recording this with my phone resulted in a mono track and loss of quality/attention to dynamics, that's, well, a bummer, but hey, I can't just blame the technology, and I appreciate the feedback. I will work on this for the future, and I'm not one to go back and edit a piece once I've actually released it (I like to take advice and use it towards future work), but since I haven't officially uploaded an HQ version, maybe I'll have improved that by the time I get a new cable. Thanks. :)

Unfortunately your picture link is broken :(

Hmmm...maybe it works now? It wasn't showing up on my phone before, but it showed up on my laptop. Switched to trusty imgur.

So I think I'm pretty satisfied with my guardian's armor-set atm. Dyes are bound to change weekly, but whatever. I was going for a lawless, feathery, light/med-armored look:

So... Crystal Desert access is blocked thanks to Queen Jennah, and the next living storing, which seems to regard that construction going on at the Great Collapse, may have something to do with Queen Jennah. Maybe we're getting even closer, folks.

By default the staff #1 skill has a rainbow effect. Just clarifying.
