Awesome Music Needed

#1 Post by PyTom » Fri Nov 13, 2009 3:58 am

Is a picture I asked Mugenjohncel to make for me, for the demo. The idea is that we'll show off some of what ATL can do by panning over a gratuitous rock concert, as made famous in dozens of anime OPs.

A problem I'm having is that I can't find music that is both free to distribute with the Ren'Py demo, awesome enough to go with the pic, and features the 3 instruments depicted (at different times, so I can ATL in on the three girls separately).

The fact that I suck at music, and can't really tell a Bass from a Guitar, really is hurting me here. Maybe someone from the community can ride to the rescue, giving me a track I can use? It wouldn't have to be long: 30 seconds is more than enough, as this is only featured at one point in the demo, and this way I can synchronize whatever I want to it.

I'd need it ASAP: This is pretty much the last thing holding up 6.10. (I'll be cutting a 6.10b soon that has everything but this.)

I found this track on Incompetech... It's not that super sounding, but it's available with a CC attribution license and roughly fits the description of what you need.

It would be better if someone were to provide a better one though...

Wow, the lighting really gives a sense of depth.

Maybe I should take a page from this and Folio Verso's main menu for a few important scenes.

PyTom, have you tried freesound.org and FlashKit's loops already?

Wow, great picture! Well, this piece of mine is freshly made, free to distribute with the Ren'Py demo, features the 3 instruments at different times, and is ~35 seconds long. What I'm not so sure about is whether it is a real song, and if it is "awesome enough to go with the pic". :)

Sweet, Alessio. Switching back to this page and watching the gif creates a neat strobing effect where the lights appear to match the rhythm.

Alessio: Any chance we can get a few more seconds of intro on that? It's pretty much what I want, but it just starts off rather abruptly. I'd like it to be kinda like when a band starts on stage... where they kinda start playing one or two at a time.

I always find music the hardest part of making Ren'Py demos... because I have vague ideas of what I want, but no idea how to convey it to a musician.

The new version is up (same link), now it's starting with drums, then bass, then guitar. Rest as before.
