Comment: This is the first part of The Final Fantasy IV Tribute EP that I made last year. Each track uses the same live instrument composition: two rhythm guitars, a lead guitar, a lead organ, and a bass guitar. I used a couple of different midi programs to do the drums; Anvil Studio and SynthFont. Then I mixed the drums, recorded the rest of the instruments, and did minor editing in Audacity. After which I mastered it with Leon's Simple Audio Mastering Program (LSAMP). All of these programs are freeware. For this mix I wanted to really amp up the drums, but keep the main feel of the song the same. Length and order are virtually identical to the version found on the OSV which definitely gives it the same nostalgic feeling, but in a much more hardcore manner. The rhythm guitars do a little bit of harmony but not overly so. The lead guitar and organ play simultaneously which gives a great color to the tone that I use continuously throughout the rest of the EP. When all is said and done it's just a hardcore version of Red Wings.

Comment: This is the second part of The Final Fantasy IV Tribute EP that I made last year. The organ part was a pain to do because I had to find a way to play it this fast and accurately. I'm not a pianist so playing keys like this is not really my usual thing. Still I managed to pull it off and the sound is exactly what I wanted. The drums really shine in this. I was nervous about incorporating the double bass drumming into this track (especially in the intro) but in the end I think it worked out really well for the most part. The intro section which is supposed to sound like bends, couldn't be done the way I wanted to play the track, so I substitute sliding up/down the strings with a hit-pause-slide kind of method to give a variation on the original track's feeling. This one (much like the other two tracks left on this EP) is very short, but powerful. This song hits hard.

Comment: This is the third part of The Final Fantasy IV Tribute EP that I made last year. Kind of an odd song to choose but I love the bass in the original version and I really wanted to make it stand out here. The chords that are normally played over this are split in half in the beginning with each rhythm guitar playing half of the chord. The same happens when the lead guitar and organ start playing. The rhythm guitars then switch to backup the bass and make it sound a bit more powerful, but clearly the bass guitar shines through and can be felt as well as heard. Not really a lot to say about the drums here. They're pretty standard. The latter half of this song is a bit different from the OSV. There is a bit more going on, but not enough to detract from the original distress and emotion behind this piece. In fact it might even amp it up a bit. Definitely my favorite track on the EP. Should've made it longer though...

Comment: This is the fourth and final part of The Final Fantasy IV Tribute EP that I made last year. By far the most grand and epic track choice I could've made. The first thing noticeable is the snare. Resembling a machine gun more than an instrument - it very, very prominently leads this piece. The lead guitar and organ are almost overshadowed by the smooth harmonies of the rhythm guitars in the second half of the track, but every aspect of this song comes together to make it shine in the same way the original did. I dare you to listen only once.
That brings the FFIV Tribute EP to a close. Stay tuned for the FFV Tribute EP coming sometime in the very distant future. I hope.
