hey all,

"Good god, not another action piece?" ;)

Thought I'd post a link and get some opinions on a short action demo I finished recently. Had a lot of fun creating it, hope you enjoy it.

I used EWQLSO Gold, StormDrum and a wee bit of EWQLSC.

Cheers,
Dave

I really enjoyed this! Question: did you accomplish the rising strings effect with just a simple pitch bend, or was there more to it than that? I've got a piece that needs a similar effect, but pitch bend just sounded too synthetic...

WoW. Great Piece, This is what I was looking for. That is what i want to create with my own music. Really man That is one hell of a good action piece.
Too bad it is so short, looking forward to your next music.

If you wouldnt mind I would be very very glad if you could sent me a midi file for this piece.
It would help me alittle bit with my orchestration.
Thanx in advance

Hi,

Excellent piece, great sound and very realistic. It's interesting to hear the standard Stormdrum loops and all the creative ways people add music to them.

This Rocks! "The Last Stand'' on your site is quite awsome aswell. :) Would it be possible to list all the instruments you used for 'sky fight'? Im just starting out with gold and would like to learn what you used.

Keep on Rockin!

In Gold, that sound and several similar ones are in "F VCS FX" under 10 Cellos.

That's a nice piece, Dave.

Hey jralbert, Courier's got it. Its a Cello FX patch in Gold.

LiquidCrow, Hmm.. Off the top of my head, I used Harp, Vibes, Timpini, 22' Cymbal, Bass Drum, German cymbal, Strings, Brass, Concert Flute, Solo Clarinet, Bassoon, Contra Bassoon, 3 Oboes, Mens Choir, and StormDrum.

Thanks for the positive feedback everyone!

Cheers,
Dave

Curses! Foiled by my stinginess once again! I just couldn't quite bring myself to buy gold, so I bought silver. And now I reap what I have sown. :(

Yup! I love Jeremy's music. I think what he did with Total Annihilation was just amazing. Thats when I first realized all that time ago the music for games is heading in the right direction. In my opinion the Morrowind theme http://www.ubi.com/DE/Downloads/Info.aspx?dlId=308
is a classic. I'm sucker for the fantasy/celtic type stuff.

I did score the new Natural Selection trailer. Glad you liked it.

Cheers,
