:D Hehe, the new version is even better. And the Heroic song is great too. I think...that if you're any good at it, you should make a game and use these songs. If not, you should find someone who needs a musician, 'cause you're good making MIDI sound good. Usually they sound pretty boring.

Oh, ja minulla on uusi MIDI. :D Nothing fancy though, I'd probably edit it around some. It's supposed to be like, for a forest or any other "mysterious setting".

Hey, thanks. Yours are great too (that Forest theme is very fitting).

I honestly have a lot of trouble thinking up ideas for midis. But once I get started, it only takes a few hours (lol) usually to establish a good formula for that song.

Concerning game-making, I'm mediocre. (I don't have game maker pro so I can't do loops, etc. just basic platforms and enemies.) Maybe I'll find someone who needs music, like you said. You'd be great at that too!

I agree on your abilities at making midi sound good; you have a good grasp on instrumentation to make midi sound more than midi.

I think it would be great to see more complex music from you, though; I like your instrumentation, and I like the chord progressions, but I'm generally looking for a little more out of the song. Do you get what I'm saying? When I make a midi, I tend to make it fairly complex sounding.

I sort of wonder what I could do if I took your midis and wrote my own stuff on top of it... I think I might be able to make something pretty good sounding. You want to see how that turns out?

Like listen to these wips (man, everything I do is a wip lol).

To Azure: Well at least you seem to have a good grasp on notes and rhythm. I have ideas for tunes all the time, but I suck at figuring out how to input the various rhythms and chords. So I usually end up with rather simplistic songs. AND YES, WORK ON HEROIC 'CAUSE IT BE MEGA AWESOME.

To Stefan: Funaltsong is awesome. It sounds delightfully crazy. It could fit for a Special Stage actually...

And I have yet ANOTHER MIDI. *shot* This one...let's see. If I were to make a game, and I had some sort of cemetery level, that's where I'd stick this in. The part after 18 seconds to the end is supposed to loop, so that's why I copied it at the end. :P

It seems we at TSC are quite a musical bunch. Lol, let's form a band and pwn everyone. [kidding kidding]

Cutiefox: That graveyard/cemetary/scary_holy_crap theme is FREAKING AWESOME! So imaginitive, and awesome, and not short at all! If I had a game, I'd definitely use it.

Stefan: You have amazing musical talent. Your songs are so much more lively than mine! I especially love that old "melodowns". It's catchy. funaltsong and cloud are stellar as well.

Let's see, what else?

Oh yeah "Heroic" update. *attach*

WARNING: The new Heroic is experimental. Instead of an instant climactic point after the intro, I've decided to do some pretty melodies and stuff for the first thirty seconds or so, then followed by a fast-paced blast of awesome. I don't know if I'll keep it or change it or what. Feedback?

Yay, thanks! :D That's probably one of the best MIDIs I'll ever make. XD

This new version of Heroic is great, and fitting for...whatever you could use it for! IMO, you could use it on a cutscene or a boss battle, it would sound good for either of those.

It also finishes pretty nicely, and loops without sounding too sudden.

I have a suggestion [which obviously you don't gotta follow if you don't feel like it :P]. This version that you just posted, keep that. THAT sounds pretty finished if you want to use it for cutscenes and other similar somethings. The suggestion, make a copy of it and make it more "full" and upbeat while still keeping the song close to how it already is. From that it should be more suitable for action stages or boss battles.

And yeah, totally optional thing, but maybe you could try it and see what happens!

Edit: By the way, any suggestions on something I should try?

Hey, guys, I just made a new song (or at least the first 48 seconds of one), and I think it's pretty good. It's a bit of a deviation, I think, from my normal style, but the piano dominates once again.

^^ The second version of Second Past is 100 times better than the first one, it sounds more completed. :P

Ooookay, these are all unfinished at the moment, but I guess I'd like some suggestions on how to finish them. They're all supposed to be background music.

Floating Temple is sort of obvious; some of the instrument tracks, are unfinished and I can't figure out if I should put a new section after where it stops or repeat an earlier section. :/
At Sea...I think I know how to finish this, so er... yeah just say if it's good so far. >_>
Mansion is weird, but what I'd like to know is, should it have a lot or just a little percussion? Can't really decide what's more suitable...but then again I'm not too fond of this one anyway.

EDIT: I just found something really weird. O_o I tried converting one of my files to an mp3, and it sounds REALLY weird> http://media-mobi.com/en/?play-q0ckmqfe2g6ius8888012o69w5zkz3u7

Try it out with any of your files and listen to the trippiness...

EDIT: That would be awesome! Go ahead, Stefan.

I really like some of the things happening in mansion.. I think I might take that song and develop it from a couple lines in the song you posted... keep your eyes open for it.

(here it is.. it's really short and doesn't have much substance.. all I did was take the melody that kicks in at 7 seconds in your mansion piece and put a few parts around it to make this... if you like it cool, it was like a half hour investment so no biggie if you don't lol. I particularly like the drums)

Oh, I almost forgot. If you have the time, Stefan, you ABSOLUTELY can modify my midis to your liking and post them here. In fact, I encourage you to do so at your earliest convenience.

(Especially since the program I use CANNOT SYNTHESIZE DRUMS! I have to establish a beat only with that "synth drum" voice, which sounds the same no matter what note you put into it.)

And that celtic castle is AWESOMEEEEE!

Y'know, I thought by whatever age we are, that we'd have a bigger vocabulary...but apparently the only word we keep using is "awesome". :0

Some games with interesting/inspiring BGM: Touhou, Trauma Center, and Yume Nikki.
All of them have great music, and from them I've learned some interesting note patterns and gotten various ideas.

Meh, why not. I got another unfinished song. Can't figure out what this one should be for though, therefore I named it a crazy name. :P

I should really finish these though, that'd be nice. XD

:D I know I should've probably finished one of those other songs, but this new one here is great! IMO...

It's a boss battle theme. I think I got the whole "suspense" factor down pretty well! And I'm particularly fond of the instrumentation I used.

Yeah, you can probably tell that I'm mega proud of this by now. *bricked*

Pretty good I'd say Cutiefox. The boss battle one was pretty honorable, robust, and action-packed.

Hi guys,

I have attached what is more than likely the best music I've written so far, which is still a work in progress. Turns out my program CAN synthesize drums!

After this post, you'll likely never hear from me again. It's not because I'm banned, and I hold no grudges against any of you guys. Simply put, I'm moving on to bigger and better things than competition, so I'd say being banned is no longer of any consequence to me! (However, I wish my stats could've stayed up so people would recognize the overwhelming effort I put in to SA(DX) and other games.)

I am leaving mainly because of the reputation I've established here, which is to most of you a really weird kid who once beat the Sand Hill records, made a bit of music, played SA(DX), and finally got banned because of an account named "Ouchkibibbles". I often acted like a moron here, and some of the consequences of that make me dread this place!

I'm not entirely sure why, but the sarcastic attitudes of many of you TSCers got to me, and it makes this site seem like a separate and more shallow reality! Members seem superficial, and I'm beginning to resent them for that.

So, good bye. I think it's safe to say I'll miss less than half of you.

...and have fun playing Sonic (I don't play anymore, I've simply lost all love for the blue hedgehog).

Hey Azure if you are still floating around here until you really leave and you see this post. If you want to still compete in anything, I suggest you can go to Cyberscore instead. They have a load of charts and not just Sonic games. (BTW, Groudon is a mod there so careful ;)

They do have a chatroom but doesn't get as much traffic as we do here. But they do allow you to get on other channels like here. They do have forums. (I'm usually not in there) I am SuperVegeta5425 if you want to meet me there. So try there, if you don't like it fine, I don't want to push you to do something you don't want.

But try them, and see if you can do better there.

The other day, I was trying to make a song that would hurt you when you listened to it. Attached is the result...which is markedly worse than this.

I'll make up for it by recording a winsome guitar solo sometime later this week.
