Re: Looking for feedback! :)

The tracks are quite nice, I'll focus on what I feel could be improved. Pulsate : I understand what you want to bring with the reptitive hi-hat but its sound is too harsh to be that loud & that often at the same time. Either soften it or make it a bit more discret. I'd also say to reduce the reverb ...

Re: Umbra [Psychological Horror/Drama/Survival][Phase 1]

I finally made some time to read the finished thing like any other reader.
While the story takes some time to let you in (or maybe I'm just an impatient guy), once things begin it becomes really... captivating, it's the word. Everything builds toward that kind of ambiance.

Re: Composing For Visual Novels as Opposed To...Everything E

Valid question ! I've been in VN music composition since more than 5 years and at first I really got stuck on this. You have to know that people actually don't care that much about the background music. And I'm not saying the music is not important (I mean, I'm composing music) but most people hear ...

I was implying it was probably more work doing it in FL when looking for a neat mastering, not that it was impossible, but maybe I don't use it enough who know.

Re: Is background music with vocals too distracting for read

I guess it's too late since it was asked for NanoReno, but for futur read, vocals songs are indeed hard to match with games and especially Visual Novel. Hard doesn't mean impossible, but it can be distracting and it's a lot more work for the composer (writing, recording and such), so rarely somethin...

Re: is FL Studio really all that bad? Other programs to use?

FL Studio is a really good DAW. It drags a "bad reputation" from his debuts when it was really different and used for cheap things, but it's just a thing from the past. Fruity Loop is maybe less "professional looking" (if that means anything) but what matters is the song you make, it will not scream...

Re: Umineko - A Fan Game (Recruiting for Composer and Assist

Just curious about why you want new soundtrack while using the art assets from the game, since music & art are on the same "asset level" after all. Only an honnest question, really.
edit : thanks, didn't look in depth into the 07th assets legal thingy.

Re: [Z♪assan Workshop] Composing music for your stories

Hey~

After nearly 3 years out there, I'm back in the community ! And I'm glad to see it's still very active.
It's partly thanks to Maelstrom-Fenrir who asked me to work with him for his VN "Umbra", I remembered how good was this place.

I edited & updated the main post with all the infos.

Re: Which file format to use for sound/music/voice?

Yeah of course, though nobody said it was an audio codec, and WAV is most of the time referring to PCM . I didn't go deeper to make it simpler. The subject being quite large, if we begin to speak about codecs, container and such it'll never end ahah. Also, really looking forward to The reason for th...

Re: Which file format to use for sound/music/voice?

There are many audio formats, but I'll comment about 5 of them here. For your question : Music->Ogg, Voices->Ogg, Sounds->Flac. Replace Ogg by Opus when it'll be supported. Lossy formats * MP3 : Most popular, but far from the best nowadays. It is still used in audio distribution because most of mobi...
