ParagonX9 - Chaoz Fantasy ParagonX9 - Chaoz Fantasy

Rated 5 / 5 stars

I <3 this song

I think this song is just simply amazing, it varies from part to part but it still has the same theme which I think is great. It's just so addictive

The ONLY problem I see in this song is also the problem you have with a lot of your songs. The track is very solid from right to the beginning up until about 5 seconds before the end. The ending to a lot of your songs are so sudden and it feels a little rushed out. You can't just build your song like a set of stairs and the last step come crashing down to the bottom, I think it should go higher and higher. But that's just my opinion.

Hello Sun-and-Moon =)

Yeah I totally agree with you that I don't really use build-ups.
Some of my songs have a build up, but I think it's usually better for flashmovies/games
if the action starts rite away. I think that my previous song (No. 5) has a very good example
of a build up which starts out with the action right away but still gives you a climax feel
that it's building up to something more. or something, lol.. i dunnow how to say it >_< XD

But i'm really thankful for the review and I'll try to make a song
with a slow buildup in one of my upcoming songs =]

Thanks again! (And also thanks to all the others who reviewed/voted etc.. =)

Assault On All Territories Assault On All Territories

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Hmm....mixed feelings

Lol, okay well I think this is a very fun song and it sounds pretty. but it could use some variety throughout. I noticed you added some stuff but essentially it was the same beat throughtout. I liked how it went back and forth (Tremolo I think it is?) and that sounded really cool. However the main melody got too repetitive and it bordered on annoying, but I guess it would be good for like a game with battle sequences, you know?

Your creativity is what's key in these songs...now just apply it with technique and practice! :)


Mataro responds:

I think you hit it on the nail lol. Yes the melody does get a little tedious, but when it builds up and switchs to the strings, I think it just adds that much extra punch, this isn't the kind of song you listen to intently, this is the kind of song you listen to while your doing something lol. My first try with FL, I think it turned out decent lol =p.


Mysteries Under The Clouds Mysteries Under The Clouds

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Well...hm

There were some parts I really liked and some parts I didn't care for.

I think you should have used the other Jegon melody as more people would understand where it came from (FF:CC). This melody sounds really off, not to mention the awkward gaps in between them when it plays over again. You should have filled that gap with maybe a bubble or a different sound effect. And as for that bubble, I felt it was really loud and violating. It could have started loud, but then maybe fade away into the melody again. That would give it an extra interesting bit, no? Near the ending were these weird bells. The bells themselves sounded really nice but the notes they were playing sounded all over the place and didn't fit in at all. It almost sounded out of key. And then you added more and more until the melody was almost drowned out.

As for the stuff I liked, I feel this is an extremely creative song. I really like the whines in the beginning going into the rain. Speaking of the rain, I feel that added a lot to this piece. If you were to take it out it would almost seem empty. I think it also added an eery almost sad mood. Which I liked. However, to continue with that sad mood you should, as I previously stated, you should have used the other melody. This one sounded too uplifiting. Maybe that's what you wanted? I'm not sure. It would have just added to the overall experience.

Some flaws, but the creativity really makes up for it
3/5


Mataro responds:

Yeah, I'm still getting used to FL so I'm a little fuzzy on how to effectively use the mixer lol. Thanks, I was trying to be creative, and yes, this song is supposed to start out ominous, and sort of find its way to being uplifting. I totally agree with the rain, it took me hours to find the perfect rain sound lol xD. As for the ending, I really actually enjoyed the counter melodies lol. Oh well =p. The one thing I had my worries about was the bubbly sounds, I knew the were intrusive, but oddly, they just seemed to fit. Thanks alot! ^^

this song rocks!

Best line - "Geometro? Are you sure we can all climb inside it?" "Probably, just open wide and maybe we can all fit"

Hilarious.



Zelda NES Title Theme Zelda NES Title Theme

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Hmm...

You came out really strong in the beginning but by the end it came up sounding flat and almost tiring. But I did like the occasional unique sounds and variations that you came up with. Also, it kept chugging along and I think the tempo was a little slow. Keep at it though



LOD-Battle Redux LOD-Battle Redux

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Great!

This is very nicely done and it brings a very unique mix of rock and synth. I especially like the piano bits and I'm impressed on how well you could musically type that >_> Unless you hooked up a keyboard to your computer...

Anywho, there is one flaw in this song. The bit RIGHT before the rock guitar comes in, there's a melody thats playing along with the drum beat, and then a ripping synth plays aswell. If that melody was a bit louder it would be as the synth quickly drowns it out. Keep it up!


Mataro responds:

I'm not terribly sure what your talking about, if your talking about the little piano roll, that continues on with the guitar, and the bass is still there, doing what bass does best, sitting back and adding punch lol. I'll take a closer look, thanks alot ^^.


Tides of the Desert Tides of the Desert

I LOVE this type of music. Deserty egyptian-ish sounding stuff is totally awsome. And this song captures a lot of that in the main melody. The ending is very VERY good and it makes for a good loop. If I were to ever create an RPG game or any game for that matter, and it had a desert, I would now know where to turn!


Mataro responds:

I'll admit as well, I do love a good arrid beat lol ^^. Although they always sound great with some water samples, but I could find any -.-. Thank you very much for the kind words ^^.


Zelda NES Depths Zelda NES Depths

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Omfg...WOW

That was awsome...I was listening to it and at first I was like "wait a second....not a lot of it's really in sync..." then BOOM total change in song. Very nice. It sounds really great but the bass kind of overpowers it a little.

By the way how exactly did I inspire you to make this? xD I don't think I did much of anything :P


Mataro responds:

Well, I stopped by your stuff, and took note that you were a fellow GB newbie =p. So I sat around thinking of a new song, then I remembered you saying that you were working on an 8-Bit themed song, that it should be interesting, and I realised that I had not done a remix before, so naturally, the first thing that came to mind was Zelda, seeing as how thats what your name is from =p. This is what I came up with, it took a very long time for notation >.<. Well, I'm glad you enjoyed it, I hope to see this new song of yours soon ^^.

P.S. Also, this particular song from the Zelda games proved to be rather annoying during actual game play lol. I wanted to see if I could make it interesting =p.


Hyrulian Funeral Hyrulian Funeral

Rated 5 / 5 stars

omfg...WOW

Okay, this is absolutely brilliant. It was extremely creative and very complicated. The only thing I would suggest is to bring in the snare drum in a little bit earlier, or if that wouldn't work, have some sort of drum. I love this song though. 5/5!!!


MooMan911 responds:

Lol! I Might have been able to do that but I just wasn't thinking about that at the time. But good idea though. Thanks for reviewing! :D


Stone Tower-MM Stone Tower-MM

Rated 5 / 5 stars

This is SO good

Very VERY well done. You managed to make it electronic without ruining the atmosphere of the creepy yet awsome Stone tower music. This makes me want to play MM again...Everything fits so perfectly in this song and you didn't diverse TOO much (much like in your Magmoor Caverns song)


MooMan911 responds:

Thanks for tghe compliment! lol, the electronic thing is somthing I like to do with video game music. Thank you for reviewing and im glad you really like it. :)
