    [​IMG] TheDarkGiganotosaur's Music [​IMG]

    I don't know if I've mentioned this before, but I'm also a musician, and I've been composing music for my amusement. But I don't know how good or bad they sound like, so I came here for opinions.

    The MP3(s) (Non-looped music.) and the OGG(s) (Looped music.) are stored in this ZIP file (Sorry about the file size but I couldn't compress it more than this.). These music were made for a certain purpose, if you'd like to know what purpose or program that I've used, then please, ask.

    I still got more music, but they're still "under construction", and these should be enough music for your souls. Hope you enjoy as I did by making them.

    <NOTE>
    I make music just for fun. If you wish to use them, don't forget to give me credit.

    <MUSIC PACKS>
    There are in total 15 Packs (Including this one here.) for you to download. Here's the links for the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, and 15th Packs.

    I liked your musics. I might use them for my mods for other games. Especially Ready for action and morbid.

    Thanks for replying, I feared this thread would go abandoned forever...

    I'm glad to know that you liked them. And yes, I've made them precisely for the use of games or mods, or just for listening.

    As for myself, I've made these musics for my own use to be added in certain games that I'm planning to create.

    Hmm, perhaps you or someone should ask these following questions:

    - What's the purpose of these musics?
    - Which program do you use to create these musics?

    Ask one of these questions and I'll answer, although I prefer the first one, since I have an important message to post here...

    Right, but before I tell you, I have a great, great bad news.

    Remember my WC3 Campaign project that I was creating? The Ring of Chaotix (You probably have already noticed that in my signature few months ago.)? Well... I am... *sigh* I am resigning. Quiting, that is. *sigh* I can't believe that I've let everyone down... I'm a complete loser...

    But seriously, the reason that I've quited the project was because of several problems that could cause any further problems to others in the future, so I've decided to cancel my project. But don't worry, I'll still be in touch with this site since I love being here, I feel like I'm in a big family. And I like all of the Hive's users, Moderators, Site Admins, and the Web Master. And hope to God this site stays alive forever.

    Now, back on topic, I'm using these musics for the future games that I'm thinking to create with the Multimedia Fusion 2 program. That's right, from the Clickteam, the creators of the old The Games Factory and Klik and Play.

    Oh yes, one of the best music making program in the world (Maybe not true at all.). The one and only, the FL STUDIO!

    Sweet. Well, keep it up with the music, man. It's quite suitable for games and stuff.

    And don't sweat it about the project. After all, 99% of wc3's projects are doomed to fail from the very beginning.

    Thanks, Frostwhisper, but have you listened to them all or just some? Yes, that includes the beginning, the half, and the end of the music.

    But the real point of this thread was to know if these musics were looking good or not.

    Well, now I'll be waiting for Elenai, Pyritie, TheDivineBoss and others to hear my musics, and their opinions. Since I'm not familiar with the PM stuff (I prefer discussing things in public.).

    Well, like I say sometimes, it was great while it lasted. Let it rest in peace.

    Well, I'd say don't give up but since you already did... I finished listening all the musics and the ones I liked are actually, most of them but the menu_like isn't my type. I'm thinking on using them for some Eduke mods or Gdoom.

    I know I shouldn't have given up. And believe me, I NEVER wanted, but I did because of this:

    If I had released my project here, it wouldn't be long until someone or more people would be VERY angry at me. Because first, it had some WoW models, and of course I know that's forbidden, even if I modify the WoW models a lot. And second, modifying people's own models and textures is extremely bad, but I would've asked for their permission and credited to their creators, but I've noticed that some people are quite vain about their creations (No offense.), and they don't take too kindly about their modified stuff.

    So you see, I don't want to cause any trouble. I had a long talk with Wolverabid about my behaviors in the Admin Contact Section, and I thanked him for understanding me. I'm a nice person and I always show respect to everyone here, and I would NEVER break any rule.

    But let's just leave it to that, I'm not sad or depressed at all, now I'm with Multimedia Fusion 2, and I'm hoping to create platform games, or some other sort. But I don't know if I'm allowed to upload my creations here...

    Now, back on topic. Menu_A_Like music was only a simple creation, nothing professional but plain simple, so I'm not surprised it isn't your type. But creating the rest of the musics took months, like 8 breakfasts, 16 lunches, 8 snacks and 16 dinners (Not exactly! But still...). You wouldn't believe how many times I had to fix them due to some volume problems, and some instrument types.

    If you're using my musics, then it's okay by me, but don't forget to credit me for them, okay?

    Of course! But first, you may have to wait for Eduke32 to support mp3 or ogg then I can release a beta of my mod.

    Ah, good ol' Elenai! I see you've already listened to my musics! I just wanted to prove myself at the community that I'm not just a worthless bag of dung. And sounding +repless too :sad:, since these musics cost me a lot of work...

    Yes, they sound incredible, don't they? But they also sound impressive and inspiring. The "Freedom" song, included in this ZIP file, has inspired me with tears.

    What did I use? Well, have you met FL STUDIO? Quite expensive along with its plugins, but purchasing them all was worth it. The 8th version, that I've recently upgraded, contains a dancing Anime character called FL Chan, and I'm in love with that scrumptious human girl...

    Well, I've opened the FL STUDIO 8 XXL Edition and did the following:

    1st - I choose any compatible FLi, VSTi or DXi instrument or drum plugins, and add each of them as channels. Wave files or the instruments from the old trackers (MOD, S3M, XM and IT.) are also supported.

    2nd - Then I start composing whatever melodies I can imagine. Not easy though, as I don't want to create already imagined musics.

    3rd - Then I add several effect plugins such as Chorus, Reverbs, Delays, Flangers, etc.. You know, giving it some vibes or explosive sounding qualities.

    4th - Then I test the music, there's always some flaws and issues when I play them for the first time, but I keep correcting them from time to time.

    5th - And presto! New music created! Now I can export it as WAV file, and then convert it into either MP3 or OGG.

    Er... I can try, but I cannot guarantee if it'll sound elven or not. But I'll try...

    Ah, no problem. There's no need to be in a hurry. I've got a whole lifetime to wait. I'm 24 years old, so I can wait, let's say... 76 years?

    <ANNOUNCEMENT>
    Stay tuned, because sooner or later I'll add more musics. The special ones that I'm about to add will be called:

    Fear_Of_Seduction - "When girls seduce boys, they'll tremble in love and FEAR!"
    Canine_Desperation - "A silly song, dedicated to my irritating dog that never shuts up!"
    WC2_Intro_Music_REMIX - "You may have heard the medieval one, but what about a modern techno one?"

    Good ol' TDG, you are by far not a useless dung bag, infact you remind me in many ways of Wolverabid, (a high honor coming from the Noldorin)

    Your music was indeed inspiring and freedom was by far my favourite.

    As for High Elf music it follows a simple pattern of of style.

    Echo/Ethereal style.

    soft clear strings, (with some echo)
    minor drum beats (tropical style)

    These make up the ambience.

    For the main flesh of the song, there are two parts.

    Choir, (clear and yet, haunting and sad, or powerful and magestic with the same ethereal feel)

    Wind instruments,

    The flutes vary, but come usually in two kinds.

    (The first should sound similar to this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yOaoUx0Mc0Q)

    (The second is clearer, and sounds similar to an ocarina)

    As for other bits of effects, bells are beloved by elf kind, even the large boom of a cathedral bell speaks to our souls, and elves also dearly love the harpsicord.

    you might also look to this for inspiration, these are quite elven in nature, even if they do not have all the High Elven characteristics.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IKa6JgI10EQ&feature=related

    And some inspiration with art or music ^^

    More to come if I find them.

    Really? I would've never thought of that! Thanks for your kind words, Elenai. Because that was EPIC! And Wolverabid, he's a great Legend among us!

    As for me, being a "nobody" (Short rep.) is not good enough for me. Oh, please keep in mind that I'm NOT eager to get a lot of rep or something (That would be dishonorable or cheating.), but all I like is respect, honor and friendship. A respected user would be appropriate. But nevermind, I don't want to trouble you...

    Indeed. And there's more where that came from...

    And you should've seen FL Chan dancing...

    Okay, I've got most of those instruments, a couple of choirs, and some special female voices too. Any type of Jeenglee-Jeenglee Bells too. Classic-type drums too. They should be good enough to give me a couple of ideas. After all, FL STUDIO is capable of creating ANY genre of musics.

    Do you like Impact Drums too? Now those are some great drums.

    Well, creating a classical medieval music would be my very first time. I need to practice a little...

    But like I've said, I'll try :wink:...

    Excellent news Gigantosaur, and I would rep you, but I must spread rep around first ^^

    As for the plugins...would they work with a tracker program called Psycle? I have been in desperate need for good choir plugins.

    As for impact drums, make it however you wish ^^ I am quite curious to see how drums can be melded into Elven music.

    And with your music creation talent, you might just single handedly give life to the sound forum, as well as provide an excellent service to the modding community.

    Please, just willing, not by force.

    "Respected User" Rank, it's tempting me, how can one achieve that?

    Um... I don't mean to correct, but Gigantosaur is a huge herbivore dinosaur, Giganotosaur is a huge carnivore dinosaur. So, I eat meat, not vegetables because I regurgitate them. But I'm no cannibal, so I'll spare your life, although you still look delicious to me...

    Psycle? Never heard of it. But I once had ModPlug Tracker. It allowed me to create MOD, S3M, XM and IT module musics. Until I met FL STUDIO...

    All I know is that FL STUDIO plugins are built-in plugins, so I don't think Psycle supports them. But does it support VSTi and/or DXi plugins? There are countless 3rd Party VSTi and/or DXi plugins around the world, and only few of them are free of charge. The plugins are DLL files, or others...

    FL STUDIO, in fact, supports most 3rd Party plugins, be they Instruments or Effects.

    If you're interested in FL STUDIO, you can visit their official site and learn more about it.

    But be warned, if you plan to download it, it'll come as a demo version, and most of its important plugins will also come as demo.

    Ahem... BOOM BADABOOM BOOM BOOM BOOM!

    Just kidding...

    You mean here? Well thanks, but no thanks. Brad.dude03 rules the music moderating here, not me.

    But even so, there are some tiny problems. First I create musics for free, no cash needed. Second, the musics I create, are only useful for games. Me, I use them for my future games created with Multimedia Fusion 2. And third, my imaginations to create musics are very limited, because I fear that I might create a music that almost sounds the same, the real music creator would say: "Hey, that guy stole my song!" or other people would say: "Hmm, didn't I heard this music from somewhere?".

    And I don't wish to trouble Brad.dude03. Like I've said, he understands musics more than I do.

    No, but they can be converted into MP3s, but that'll screw up the looping points. And WAV files would only make them too large.

    <ANNOUNCEMENT>
    Here's more five musics.

    And Elenai, I'm not finished with the high elven music yet. Give me a couple of weeks. And FL STUDIO looks like this.

    Yes, I did once, but not WC3. And I used Modplug Tracker, not FL STUDIO. It sounded a bit terrible. Too loud!

    But the sounds may no longer sound terrible when I finish creating one with FL STUDIO. I just need some time to imagine new battle musics.
