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
