Salutations!
 
I am a humble composer looking to gain more practice while also giving out music for people to use!
 
Here are some examples:
Orchestral

Electronic/Rock-ish
https://soundcloud.com/seventh-beast/gilgerdesher
Chip Orchestral

You can check out other examples of things I have done here.
 
I can provide music in .wav, .ogg and .mp3 formats!
 
Rules
- Each song will be a maximum of 1 minute long
- Everything I make will be available for use for everyone
- Patience is key! Don't fret if it's not done yet!
- Music can be used for commercial or non-commercial projects
- If slots are full and you make a request, it will be ignored!
- Post your request in this topic. Do not message me (unless absolutely necessary).
- Don't post asking if I'm still doing requests! The shop would be closed if I wasn't!
- Credit me as either "Seventh Beast" or "Ashedragon". You can also link to my Soundcloud if you wish!
- You're allowed to have a maximum of five instruments
- Do not add your own fields to my template (e.g. "name of song" etc)


- One request at a time!


- If you are requesting a battle theme, you are mandated to include either a video (preferred) or screenshot of your battle system for context.

Song Template

Code:
[b]Musical Type[/b]:
[b]Description/Scene[/b]:
[b]Instruments (Optional)[/b]:
[b]Unwanted Instruments (Optional)[/b]:
[b]Max Length (Optional; 1 min or less)[/b]:
[b]Loop? (Yes/No):File Format (wav, ogg, mp3)[/b]:
[b]Referrer (Optional)[/b]:
NOTICE: Be as detailed as you possibly can for the description/scene! If you don't try, neither will I! You can also add images of your game/etc to the description if you aren't super at describing what it is you want.


SFX Template


Musical Type:
Theme:
Description:
Feel:
Length:
Unwanted Sounds(Optional):
File Format (wav, ogg, mp3):
Referrer (Optional):


 Explanations: (Musical Type) would be Orchestral or Electronic or Chiptune, etc. (Theme) would be Heartbreak, Sadness, Victory, Intense Battle, etc. (Feel [for sound fx]) would be "light", "airy", "heavy", "metallic", etc.
 
Shining Example(s)


Musical Type: Orchestral


Theme: Creepy, intense


 


Description: Slightly swampy forest, only a little light filtering down through the heavy canopy of trees. Ground squelchy underfoot. Sometimes your footstep releases small pockets of noxious smelling gas. Vines trail down and brush your head - at least, you hope they are only vines. It's warm and humid, but you get cold shivers as shifting lights seem to change shadows into something more solid, and then back again. When you pause you can feel the forest waiting - but for what? Or for whom? It's holding its breath - why? Sad little rivulets break through the ground, only to seep back in again within a few feet. Moss envelopes tree stumps. No birds, no insects, no animals, just the trees waiting for you to enter their embrace.


Max length: 1:00, or thereabouts.


Loop? (Yes/No): Yes


Unwanted Sounds: n/a


File Format: Ogg


Referrer (Optional):




Musical Type: Main Theme, Sad, emotional, depressing, orchestral


Description/Scene: Appearance scrolls through different playable characters and locations with rain in the background.The theme should reflect the game, which deals heavily with loss. The land is in the worst condition it's been in centuries and all the heroes have failed.


I want the song to feel powerful and hit the player right in the feels so that every time they come back to the game it gets them.


I can't really describe how I want it to sound so I'm going to list emotions should be mixed in. Hopeless as if there's nothing you can do as if there is a constant pressure in your chest. Grief, loss everywhere and nothing you can do about it. (I'm sorry if this description sucks I'm not the best at describing things)


Instruments: Acoustic Guitar


Unwanted Instrument: Anything sci-fi


Max Length: 2:30-3 min (Note: This was during a promotional event, you can still only get 1-minute songs.)


File Format: mp3


Loop?: Yes

Slots
Slot 1: (none)
Slot 2: (none)
Slot 3: (none)
Slot 4: (none)
Slot 5: (none)

Referral Points
For every person you refer to my shop, you get a referral point. 4 Points lets you get a 2-minute track, 12 Points lets you get a 3-minute track, and 24 points lets you get a 5-minute track (all free for commercial and non-commercial use.) For 5 extra points, your track will be just for you (no one else can use it)

Crikey, for my first request I wasn't expecting something so hard. Do you have any reference music I could use? I'm having a hard time finding something for it.

The first request was awesome! Thanks again so much!!! :D

Here's a new request:

Name of Song: ~A Vengeful Spirit~
Musical Type: Orchestral
Theme: Fear, Terror, Run Away, Escape, Nowhere to Run, Dark, Japanese Horror,
Description: Japanese, Terrifying, Horrifying, Fear, Escape, (A wonderful example would be this song:



[Fatal Frame IV OST Battle E])
Instruments (Optional): Piano (There are other instruments used in the example song, but I don't think I would be able to recognize them. Piano doesn't have to be the only one. If you can mimic the sounds in the example song with different/similar/correct instruments, that would be wonderful. :D )
Unwanted Instruments (Optional): Drums, Snare, Bass.
Max Length (Optional): 1 minute.
Loop?: Yes.Extra notes: The theme of this song is that in the game, the main character is being chased by a vengeful spirit and the theme of the song is as if there is no escape and fear begins to overcome the character.

Apologies for the wait, guys. Life's been getting in the way, but I just wanted to assure you that I am working on your requests.

Cheers,

WOW! Amazing! Another epic job, Archduke! Thanks so much for this! I really enjoy how this track is composed in the sense of being chased in a place of terror with no escape! You've done a wonderful job once more! I can really see this track in my game! I really love this track! :D Thanks so much, Archduke! :D

Well hey, it's as cheery as I expected. I like it.
Sorry if it's not as amazing as the example you gave me, cheerful tracks are surprisingly hard, haha. I'm glad you like it anyways, though!

You have a tag for SFX, so I would like to request a sound effect.  Your template doesn't really cater for that, so I've had to be a bit 'creative' with it.  The information doesn't quite fit into the format, so I've done my best.

Music Type : Sound Effect for a skill animation

Theme : Revive/Resurrection 

Description : Rising tone, not the harsh/sharp-edged tone of the default SE used (Saint7).  I would like it fading out at the end
Instruments : Your choice.  
Unwanted Instruments : Anything that sounds whoop/whoosh
Max Length  : About 2 seconds, maybe a little less.  You could take as a guide the length of the default SE for Revive, it's animation #42

Limited to wanted instruments?  Not applicable

Loop?  No

Thank you

I prefer you limit it to one request at a time, but since the list is fairly empty I'll let it go, haha.

It just gets better! :D Thanks again for the well-crafted and well-orchestrated track, Archduke! I really appreciate this! Once more you have captured the entire scope of what I asked for! Over these past few weeks, I have very much enjoyed requesting from your workshop as it is very much worth the wait for hearing the creative works of art you orchestrate! Thanks so much for this new song as I can definitely see it in my game and I absolutely cannot wait to hear what the next song will be like!

Thanks so much for taking my requests,

- Tornado Samurai.

convention concluded, i'm glad the books well received and sold out
not every content is decent, but i'll be better for the next work.

now back to game developing
I hope to be able to post my vxace resource edits this Wednesday.
Not sure if I'll get to the library though.
Me: Man, I'm definitely burned out this time. Time for a break. Me three hours later: I'm ready to work again, let's go! Me another hour later: Okay, I can't do this anymore. Repeat for infinity.
Just got MV and am working on porting over my new game from VX Ace to it! I haven't done much with my new game so it should be pretty quick.
I was doing forge runs on D2 with my wife last night, and singing like a leprechaun to annoy her XD. I was calling it 'The Farge'
