Roads Of Citadel Island... A Special New Piece...

Yea, I know, Atresica asked me to stop making them, but I couldn't resist... I got into such an inspirational frenzy, that I finished this one within 25 hours or so (over 3 days)...
And I relaly love the outcome.

You'll see the special thing about it once u've downloaded it... I'll post the midi, but honestly, this piece ESPECIALLY sux on midi, cause its full of guitars, and guitars on midi are just terrible and unhearable...
So please please download the Mp3 as well, it's so much awesomer, and I really wouldn't want the midi to screw up the song for you.

Here 's the link anyhow, hope u like it.

6 Instruments (By Order Of Appearence) -
Electric Guitar
Acoustic Guitar
Orchestra Strings
Drum Set
Distortion Guitar
Contrabass



And this is the midi file -

Another great piece by ET The electric guitar is playing in a pretty high octave, which fits into the atmosphere of the piece, ever tried switching it with the acoustic, could make an interestinf effect?

The tune's also cheerful (i.e: You'd get the impression that a quest/journey to Citadel Island would take place.) The guitars also make a great change too.

btw, Et, sorry if you've been flooded with this question but, how do you turn the midi piece to .mp3? Place it into a program called reason or something?

Atresica, I fixed the link... Try checking it again, u sure it's not working?... Worst case I'll just send it to ya through ICQ.

Kaderboy - The high octave guitars are a little influence I got from 80's rock (I'm a big 80's rock fan)... 80's Rock, in case you don't know, has a lot in common with LBA music, they're both kinda cheerful, and give u the feeling there's some "quest" going on...

I think changing them to acoustic would lower the "happy" feeling of the song... And there's already an acoustic gutiar doing both the bass parts and some of the theme in some parts...

I could've added some more instruments as usual, like woodwind and brass, but I wanted this one to be different, so instead of dividing all the song's "pressure" to different instruments like I always do, I put it all on those instruments... You'll notice I used half the instruments I do usually, yet the song doens't sound "less powerful" or anything... Plus, the song's bitrate is a bit faster, 120 instead of my usual 116... It's a small difference, but it's really noticable.

Oh, and as you saw, I changed the name to "Roads Of Citadel Island"... I think this one is much better... Cause it fits more to the happy feeling I got while just running around all the streets and roads there... I think we all had that happy feeling... And besides, the small LBA piece I put in there (The leading contrabass in 2:44 to 3:00) is also the one you get while walking in one of the streets, so, u know...

Oh, and no, Atresica, I first make it on midi, only then do I put it on Mp3 with Reason... The drums are still midi though, so it gives me a hell of a hard time to sync the midi playing with the Reason playing at exactly the same time, so the drums sound good.
Though I usually make around 20 seconds of the song in midi, then put it on Reason to get some more inspiration, cause that's how I know how the piece actualyl sounds...
Midi's got a way of distorting the way the music really is supposed to be heard, but I won't get into that...

Very good piece again.
Your two links works Evil ,I find a system to donwload them :

For the one who have or use Windows Media Player,

Open it, choose "fichier"(the first button) and "open an url".
Insert in the hut the link that Evil give us and do "ok".
WMD will read the song, and you can save it after ( "fichier","save as")

Atresica: told ya so

ET: So you compose the music in noteworthy, then import it to reason? How does reason convert it, each instument gets a different sample etc.?

Well not exactly... I import the midi, and then I get each staff seperately, and I just attach an instrument to it... I mean, it doesn't recognize which staff is supposed to be in which instrument, you have to assign it by yourself. Then you can add some reverbing too, which gives a nice "live" effect. For example, the distortion guitar has reverb, so it sounds a lot more "echoed" and real...
