  • Short melancholic theme

    Hey guys,

    First of all, I must express how pleased I am with VSL Special Edition so far, it's more than I had hoped for. Truly amazing!

    I composed this short theme yesterday, and I wanted a few opinions from people, I wanted to see if they thought that I was doing anything wrong:

    Well, I guess I should introduce myself, as not many people know me here. My name is Cody Darr, and I am 17 years old. Music has always been the one and only key to my heart, music is why I live my life. I've been playing the piano for almost 13 years now, and have been into digital audio workstations for nearly 5 years. Most of my DAW experience has been with electronic music, but my facination with the orchestra made me stray from my typical electronic works.

    Anyway, long story short, I went through a few libraries and found VSL SE. I've had it for about 3 months, and it's been really amazing.

    I will take any criticism with the best possible attitude. I thank you for your time and consideration.

  • Perhaps a different host for your mp3 file?

  • Thanks, hehe...

    I cannot afford webspace, you know you still could have downloaded it? Just because it's got a "download" button and a few google ads doesn't mean it'll give you a virus... [;)]

  • I just mean your link initially produced a page full of links to porn videos ... for a moment I thought the spam bots had started writing and composing music! (give it another 5 years and they probably will!).................................... As for your music ... I could definitely have listened to more..... :)

  • I wish I had the VSL at the age of 17!
    Nice orchestration and ambience,  but not really a 'theme' in my opinion, but I like the chord development.

    This could be a good intro to  a melancholic tune.

    Keep on trying!

    Very nice, sonicether. It does sound like an introduction to something else coming. Would you expand it? Nice movement in the dynamics tone.

  • Thanks for your feedback, very kind indeed.

    Wow, porn site? Sorry about that, I have never had problems like that with speedyshare.

    I did intend on this being a theme, as you can hear, the IV to V chord progression at the end was meant to lead into a main theme. It's really not a theme yet, but it's going there...

    Yeah, hehe, I'm actually pretty poor, but I scraped up all of my money to get this. My computer is about 6 years old, with only 512 MB ram, so you can imagine how hard it is to get a decent ammount of instruments playing without dropouts or overloads. I am forced to use the 'sustain' patches instead of the legato ones. Then in the final mixdown I convert every sustain to legato and render everything seperately (that's the only way possible for a smooth render).

    I will expand on this, thanks for the feedback!

  • hey, you might want to check this out:

    they offer 250 mb comletely free web space with  a domainname, with 5gb monthly bandwith.

    You can use the protocol to set up your site just like any other pro site, but it takes some work to get it good offcourse.

    Dont ask me how it all hangs togehter, i did get some help with the setup etc, but it is absolutely free, and it works very well.!!!
