    Friends,

    Wow, it's too many to hear one by one.

    I just played Pre-Boss battle.

    In my opinion, it can also use in shooting game in a stage before boss.

    Nice Atmospheric background music.

    Btw, I'll listen them all later :D

    I've listened to quite a few of these and I must say you make great music. I don't know how many of these I will use, but I can guarantee I will be using some. Thank you.

    I had a request for a water-themed battle loop, so I mashed up a few of my old songs and added some nice icy synth sounds.

    294 - Leviathan (Battle Loop, OGG)

    Preview & Download

    A mash-up of two battle themes and the coastal town theme.

    Here's another battle loop. This track was a pain to write... setbacks galore. I built this one from the ground up:

    295 - Insidia (Battle, Loop, OGG)

    Preview & Download

    Insidia - Greek Goddess of Treachery. A battle loop that was written with a thief character in mind. I can't seem to picture monsters when I listen to it.

    Wow...such a great tool. The default songs on Ace aren't bad, but they are very limited. Yours will help a lot!
