  2. Oh, sounds very interesting. A great idea!

    Well, I am working on a map and I hope to add custom music, but it is nothing I need fast.

    Basically, it is a decaying and frozen environment, rather undiscovered and mysterious.
    I imagine the music expressing the unknown factor of the map, that the invaders do not know anything about the lands they are moving on, while they see that the land is corrupted and decaying and owned by Undead forces.
    Important is also the temperature, it would be nice to have some sounds that make aware of the snow, the ice and the frozen mountains.

    It would used as a background track playing during gameplay.

    So, if you have too much time, I would be glad if you could create something wonderful :)

    Well, you're my first customer :p I would not want to let you down I will try to do my best how many days can you give to me? and do you want any specific instruments to be played in the song? I will start tonight or tomorrow morning

    Update: Do you have a size threshold like it should be less than 3mb etc..
     
  4. Oh, you can take as much days as you want to.
    If you need a time line to get on track, I would say, around 21 days should be fine :)

    Hm, difficult. Right now I cannot think of any that I would like to have in it.
    Maybe, how are these called, these little bells, that have a high sound, as sometimes heard in Asian themed tracks.
    Basically, it should be a dark atmosphere, but not lacking natural elements.

    Just compose around :) I am sure you will do good!

    Okay I made a litle sample it is 1:22 mins

    I tried to give the feeling like our protoganist is walking in the undead lands hearing weird noises but doesn't know what's producing the noises and the music is flowing smooth and softly behind him.

    Then after the first growl the drums start as to build some little tension while sounding pretty dull and dead-like going all the way repetetively.

    If you like this sample I will continue from here slowly building the tension until at some point we get to a climax and that is where the story (in my mind) meets the human with the undead.

    After that the song will have its speed allright and will never drop the tension down.

    This is just my plan roughly it may change and you may interrupt this too. It will be in your game after all.

    If you didn't like this, like I could add a more darker strings part or to add anything just say it.

    All right enough talking here's the sample :D

    I'm no music pro but what's with the bells? I don't think it fits there and the drums well it kind of ruins the eerie feeling might change the drums but hey I'm not the one who requested this so well let's see his reaction.

    The rings are to add some kind of atmospheric feeling in it think of an undead making noises with something in its hands. The drums; okay didn't work on them :D just put a few strokes the last part will be fixed I don't want to continue right now bcz as you said we got to see his reaction
     
  12. You did a good job, that is not a question :)

    I read apcrabnightlive's comment about the bells and I slightly disagree. In the first moment I didn't even realize that these are the bells/rings, as they fit perfectly into the atmosphere, in my opinion. Nonetheless, maybe reduce them a bit ? I think it would be even better :)

    About the initialization, I think it is totally missing. It starts immediately with the northern sounds and therefore it is really abrupt. I think a little introduction helps a lot, even if it is only the music raising from no volume to default volume :)

    You could add sounds of crushing ice or wind blowing in trees ( they are a few) for later sound clips.

    Additional sound suggestion: Boss Theme suggestion:
    Suggestion mean that these clips / parts contain good samples for what I imagine, you shouldn't adapt them 100% :) just get some inspiration from it.
    Great job! I am excited for the new versions!

    More of like a chime or light ring of the bell.
     
  14. Hm, I'd prefer a deep bell, dark and mysterious .D

    So you want an instrumental intro then enter the fx(wind, ice cracks...)

    I will decrease the hits of the bells and check for a better sound they're a bit overused in this sample.
     
  18. Yes, exactly, make sure the music does not start out of nowhere, but, you could still pay attention to the fact that it will loop, means the end and the beginning shouldn't break the track.

    I hope I am not too demanding :/

    Okay got it, put a choir in the beginning to make the entrance (therefore the end too by connecting for loop) soft and better.

    You should be telling what you want else I will do as I like :D (and no you are not being demanding
     
  20. Hm, maybe a dark choir / single man slightly howling, as being heard in one of the Epic Darkness Remix editions, one of the links should lead to it.

    Else, maybe some footprints on snow, very calm in the background.
    Maybe, a clang as if something metallic drops down.
    Different blowing winds, some scary snaps, clicking ice.

    Just let your creativity some space :)
