HA! Well, at least he died happy....
That's how I like to think of it :)
No audio credit = badness
I want to know who did the opening music "Where There's a Whip, There's a Way". There aren't any audio credits. That sucks ass, especially since I'm a musician myself. Free, good music is a good thing, but free, good, uncredited music is just shit.
The animation was alright, except one point where the music is in the low register and the player's right hand is at the top of the keyboard. I'm sure even 'normies' would notice that.
I put what movie I got it from in the credits but was to lazy to actually dig up the dudes name.
I don't know if the song actually ever received a name but it was made by Maury Laws and Bernard Hoffer.
Hey, thanks for using Choral Cue. It's a good piece. It's gratifying to know people like my stuff. If you need anything medievalish for the second part, just send me a note at a_sly_shrew@hotmail . Cool Flash, by the way. Grins for Queen and Psycho. Also, I thought you used my piece pretty well, especially when Orion is being all "Remember me". Peace.
Thanks a lot for using my music. I was hoping for somebody to use Pizzicato Boredom eventually. It has never failed to make me happy and excited to see a my stuff implemented in any kind of flash work. The flash itself is pretty good. It's hard to go wrong with madlibs. Unless you momentarily forget what an adverb is and think your form is going to be erased if you go to check. That's poo. Good work, anyway. Keep it up.
When I first heard the music, I thoought "I have to use it." Thank you for posting it.
Thanks a lot for using my music. It makes my day to hear 'Sad Circus' in a flash, knowing it will be heard by lots of people. I wasn't very good at the game, but I'm generally not good at mouse-type-games. Maybe it's just because I was excited. Anyway, thanks again.
yeh no worries. makes my day to have such good music easily available!
Thank you one million times for using my Reggae No. 1. It made my day when I looked through and saw "Used in 1 Submission". I actually did a double-take and then threw my head back and laughed at the ceiling. Oh, good flash, too. I was glad I got the weird guy. Music wise, that is.
Glad to make your day!
Kind of cool
Kind of captured a feeling, though I was waiting for something more, or perhaps just a change in any aspect of the piece. Perhaps just changing the register, and playing the same notes an octave lower or higher would do the trick. Or even a whole other layer to the piece, like a woodwind melody. There are infinite possibilities in music, and I think you'd find greater enjoyment in writing your music if you tried more stuff. Perhaps something you'd never think of doing, just to see what happens. Also, the repetitive bass octaves could be mixed down a bit. They rather muddy the track.
Very good material, though. Keep writing. :-)
Thanks for the descriptive review! I could probably have made it a bit longer with new melodies and such, but i think it's still good as it is.
Nice blues, with good solo....last thing one expects to find on Newgrounds. Funny, too. Kudos to you......a nice Hammond organ would add another level of awesome, but I'm rather biased, being a keyboard player myself. Anyway, great stuff.
If I had known you when I made the song you could have played it. That surely would have lifted the song. I was thinking horns myself actually.
That 10 looks good to me!
I like this better than the Lost Church piece, honestly. Reminds me of the music from the first Age of Empires game. Though the vocal-sounding instrument would be out of place there. Anyway, well done.
A few things about both composition and the NG audio portal. If ACID is the only composition program you have, you will inevitably find it constricting soon. You can get a free sequencer from noteworthy. Google them if you don't already have a sequencer. It sounds like you are knowledgable about music in general, so there are very few obstacles left to conquer. Also, it looks like you are taking some time between submissions. I never got a lot of buzz back when I was actively contributing here, but I do know that traffic is what gets you noticed and what gets you reviews. Submitting a new 'piece' every day or two, then tossing in the big pieces you really want recognition for is a good system. The oodles of people coming to check out the many pieces you've contributed are bound to stumble across the things you really put your all into, even if they have to wade through a few extras first. If you look through my oldest things, you'll see there's a lot of useless crap. But every now and then, there's something worth noticing.
That said, good luck. And get to work......:-P
Thanks again for the review. Obviously I've been working with FL more, as I found ACID didn't really seem to be working for what I wanted it to. What I've made so far has been some work getting used to the programs, so I've been trying to get better that way. I don't know if I can churn our a song every day or two, but I'll definitely try to create things a littel faster. I need to work a lot on my arranging of sounds. When there's so much to do, it's hard to decide what to spend a lot of time on. Hopefully I can start making some things worth listening to!
