My first try

Post by Industriebrot »

Hello guys,

I'd like to support the Wesnoth project with some music.
Here is my first attempt for a music in medieval style.
It is a little bit like Age of Empires 1. Enjoy.
If you like it I'll try to make a wav, ogg or something.

Thanks! Wesnoth music is usually stored in .ogg files.

Sounds kind of nice. It gets quite repetitive, though. I think it would be good to remove about half of the total content, and reduce it to be played at half the speed, leaving the same total length.

P.S.: What program did you use to make it?
It's all fun and games until someone loses a lawsuit. Oh, and by the way, sending me private messages won't work. :/ If you must contact me, there's an e-mail address listed on the website in my profile.

Thanks for the fast reply.
It repeats quite often because I normally make trance, rap and techno (and stuff I cant sort in genres).

I use a nearly 15 year old Windows 3.11 program ( Voyetra MIDI Orchestrator plus). Sure, its a relic, but its simple and easy. (KISS works :D )

For the mp3s (which I can convert in oggs) I use Fruity Loops, but this is a rather unexplored continent. It will take a few month to learn the whole stuff and tools the program comes with.

Awesome! It`s your first try? Hard to believe. But it`s a bit too long, i suggest that you try what EP suggested.

I'm currently lacking of webspace. :roll:
Is there a way to dump my stuff here or mail it to someone?

Converting mp3s to ogg is a really bad idea. Lossy formats should always be final conversions, not intermediate steps.

MP3 is a patented format and they want you to pay to license their encoding technology. I always thought MP3 was free, and on our end it may be. However, for people using MP3 in a product they produce it costs money. OGG is free and better than MIDI I guess. We're all about free around here.
