I like this, what software did you use? I'm using limited tools right now, so finding a better music engine is always great.

Thank you Kevin! Was by accident I guess... but I think I had the Christmas spirit on me when I started composing it :)

Thank you StarCrunch! I'm using Cubase 12 as DAW, but honestly you can use almost anyone that can work with VSTs. One important thing without doubt is the quality of sound of the VST, which in my case most of them, with the exception of the harp and piano, was from Spitfire Professional. Although I think what matters more is how you work the MIDI, I mean, the CC of expression and vibrato mostly. Following that, in the Mix, what I do is removing frequencies to avoid frequency stacking (mostly on the sub-bass area), add some analogic saturation and perhaps an EQ to make more present (or less) some instruments. About FX I remove the microphones of the VST and better use Reverb to emulate the planes or positions of the orchestra. If you understand how to work that, you might be able to do the same process in any DAW. I wrote a tutorial about how to do that, is free to download, but is not finished and is in Spanish. The chapters I wrote are about using Kontakt with Cubase, how to open outputs, import MIDI to DAW, colorize channels and organization stuff, balancing audio before the mix, group and FX channel routing and the use of CCs like expression and vibrato. If you are interested I could share you the link.

You give me impatience to play that game with that music! I like it, it is almost cinematic.

I love this! It has a fun whimsical feel to it--I imagine a little kid walking around a big town looking at all the sights, towards the end needing to stop to catch their breath and take it all in.

Weekend Sale Announcement:
Our Roguelike game, Zodiac Hunters (for PC), is now on sale!

When I first gave my gf The Mask Behind the Dream as a present little did I know how much she would fall in love with @averys gnomes. They all now play a major role in our game and I get constantly spammed with fanarts from my girlfriend :D And like the true gothic girl she is, she had to alter the designs a bit, to make them more creepy and dark haha230776-df5feb263d7a7ff294cfb260ee16432c.jpg
Hi sweethearts! :kaoluv: Check out my review of @EntangledPear's totally oldskool The Stuff Fairy Tales Are Made Of!
When you spend all day at work distracted by things you want to work on or try in your project and then by the time you get home, you are too mentally tired to concentrate so you just browse the forum instead and think of more things you won’t get to work on for a while.
Time to write some enemy behaviors, here's the stream link for those interested.
