Ahh, it's semi-good to be back. I would have been happier with more than one submission this time, but beggars can't be choosers. We can darn well complain about it, but otherwise, we have to suck it up and take it like the men and women we beggars are.
I've decided to give mini-reviews of the music that gets sent to me, as was once the tradition here at Sound Test. I don't really get much, and since I'm the only one who writes anything über-huge, it's not too hard for me to take the time to listen and write up something on the music you could potentially be downloading.
Anyway, Tom's piece is real nifty. I like it, but I wish it was longer. I can understand why it's so short, though; Tom is suffering from the same Final Fantasy XI addiction as I am. (Confidential to Tom: Crafting is too inconsistent and expensive for me to handle right now. Blech.)
It's a little uncool for me to review my own music, so I'm just going to leave my comments below and hope you all consider spending (wasting) your time downloading it.
Other than that, I have nothing else to report. I'm getting increasingly busy now that I've been slacking off on school work for the past month or so, and I likely won't be getting around to tackling the painfully arduous beast of the archives. I know it's not fair, but don't blame me! Blame...uh...the other guys...
Its basically a reorchestration of the original but with a longer intro and edited flute section. I made use of synth brass with filters for the most part, and kept the original timpani with some added drums.
It's finally done! *cheers a lot* It's a lengthy download, but considering the amount of time spent working on it, the time downloading should be well worth it. I have written a meticulously detailed article on the progress I made with Memories, and also note that this is a lengthy read as well.
All previous editions of Memories hosted by RPGamer have been updated, so the versions previously downloaded have been changed to correct balance, sound quality, and orchestration issues.
