Soundcloud does some sort of weird compression when it processes your uploads. Not sure why it would wind up quieter necessarily, but there you go. I would be interested to hear this how you intended it to sound!
Hey, thanks for the feedback! Sorry for the super-late response; I honestly didn't think anyone would say anything. >_>

I'm glad you liked it, though! You were right about the percussion, I was definitely going for crashing waves and I'm glad I got that across. And the FF6 comparison is super flattering.


Anyway, recently I acquired (a gimped version of) Ableton Live and a MIDI controller to go along with it. Here is a song I made to teach myself how to use these things:

My original idea was to do more of a house-style song, but it wasn't going anywhere so I made this instead. It's pretty cheesy/bombastic.

Also I'm not sure what's triggered it - although I think it's being around music every day in college - but I'm writing much more than when I last posted in this thread. I'm working on several songs/pieces at the moment and hopefully I'll post in here more often in the future. Maybe some of these things will even be good! =V

I'm gonna make another post in this thread and you can't stop me

https://soundcloud.com/albatoss/the-silver-citadel

I tried to finish this yesterday (my birthday), but alas it was not to be. I actually started writing it a couple months ago, but I got stuck and put it down for a while; I only picked it back up last week. It's a slow piano piece in 11/8 (because weird time signatures are awesome); I'm not really a pianist at all so I'm not sure how playable this would be by an actual performer (and it would probably take me weeks of practice to be able to play it myself), but I tried to keep it reasonable.

11/8 is cool. It sounds reasonably playable as of halfway through but it's hard to be sure without seeing it written down.
