  1. Hey walrus, thats a sweet sounding version. I'm not too sure about the instrument you're using on the melody though. I'm wondering what panpipes would sound like for the melody?

    There's this dude over at Newgroounds who copied Cinossu's own rendition of EHZ and posted it as his. You can find the file here.

    Not only that, but Mystic Cave Zone is also either Cinossu's or Blaze's—I don't remember whose—and his Death Egg "remix" is just a rendered MIDI.

    It kind of reminds me of this one time some random YouTube kid tried to pass himself off as the creator of Megamix... by selectively approving comments on the video. Good going, champ! :colbert:

    None at the moment I'm afraid.
    That's not very nice. I'd never do something like that. If I caught someone doing that to one of my creations I'd be forced to have to hurt him.

    OK, I didn't recognise them but I had the suspicion they were not his. For the record, the link is invalid now, as Newgrounds has removed the song from their servers.

    Sorry for the slow updates, but I've been having some personal issues take up a good chunk of my time recently.

    I've followed many of your suggestions regarding instruments, and I think it's progressed quite nicely, but I wanted some feedback before I continue.

    I still haven't done anything with the drums=P


    Here's the link: http://www.xmission.com/~jake_reed/files/music/CPZ6.ogg

    Here's my previous render for reference: http://www.xmission.com/~jake_reed/files/m...CPZ4-Synths.ogg


    A few questions that I want answered:

    Likes and dislikes about instrument choices (feel free to make suggestions of alternative instruments).

    Likes and dislikes about the dynamics and overall instrument volume levels in relation to each other.

    Other feedback is welcome as well, of course, but these issues seem to be the critical factors.

    The sucker is whining a lot about it, but I have now checked MCZ2P for myself and have confirmed that it's the same. Not very nice...

    I like most of them, except for that harmonica-like instrument leading the song. It really changes the style of the music.

    First off, which lead are you referring to? The saxophone? Or the the chords that start at the very beginning of the song?

    Could you explain what you think it should sound like? In order to make it better, I first have to know what better is =)



    EDIT: To anyone who has an opinion, please tell, even if it's nasty.

    "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all" does not apply here, I need to know where this stands. Even if you completely hate it and have nothing constructive to say (though, constructive is preferred), please tell me.

    The Lead in that doesn't seem to fit Chemical Plant Zone at all, in my opinion. Everything else sounds great, however.

    I've just always interpreted in as a saxophonish sound. What did you have in mind?

    Also, listen to the lead from my old render (http://www.xmission.com/~jake_reed/files/m...CPZ4-Synths.ogg) and see if that lead fits better.

    After listening to the two, I think I like the old lead sax and bassline better. Give me a minute and I'll post yet another ogg!

    I think you've nailed it with that. :)

    I don't. I feel that both the lead and the saxophone are way too mellow.

    The lead is a saxophone; please clarify what instruments you are referring to.

    Sorry, when I say lead, I mean the instrument that is most prominent in the intro, before the main loop. The instrument that "leads into the main tune" if you will.

    Chemical Plant is much better now. But I have to agree there is something off about one of the instruments used but I can't pick apart which one it is, so sorry if this comment is basically useless.
    I at least enjoy listening to this song repeatedly now... :)

    Is that really supposed to be a saxophone? :)

    Yes, it is. I've played with it a bit though, and the high end is much louder than the low; I was looking to make it sound somewhat artificial and give it some extra punch, mostly because a stock saxophone doesn't really fit in CPZ's environment.

    However, in light of your reply, I've tried the track with the stock sax as well.

    Here's yet another render with the new saxophone (and a bit of tweaks, more reverb, etc)
    http://www.xmission.com/~jake_reed/files/music/CPZ8.ogg

    Is this more what you were looking for, ICEknight? I actually think it sounds better =D

    So, thanks much for the feedback, folks.

    RedStripedShoes, are the intro chords a better now? I've made them a little brighter.

    Actually, I liked the old better.

    ...Better, but it still sounds a bit like a harmonica of sorts to me. o_o

    Unless I'm mistaking instruments, the kind of saxophone I was thinking of was whatever instrument kicks in at 0:42 in the Snatcher intro song. If that happens not to be a saxophone, please pardon my musical ignorance...
