I just posted a couple of tracks that I'm planning to use in Telepath RPG: Servants of God. Both of them are character themes:

http://www.sinisterdesign.net/TSoGMusicPlayer.html

Some background: Baz Al'Jaj is an overweight, filthy rich, slightly ridiculous character. His theme uses an Oud, a Ney, an Oboe, and a Cello ensemble. Luca is a ghost with very little recollection of her life before she died. Her theme uses a Celesta, Bass Clarinets, and a Violin Ensemble.

Newly added: a battle theme that I happen to think is pretty bad-assed.

This is some cool stuff. I think Baz Al'Jaj is my favorite. It has kind of a lo-fi/folkish quality. One thing, though: Your highest flute sample sounds a little out of tune. That may not be a bad thing, actually, if it fits the character.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. I'm glad you like it! I added a little loading animation to the player so people won't think it's not working.

Wow, those are all really well done and professional. My only gripe is that Against the Cult is a bit too generic sounding when compared to the other three, which are all so deliciously exotic and unique. It's probably personal taste, though, and it's clearly very competently written regardless.

New track added: The Academy. This will serve as the theme music for the Psy Academy, a military academy for telepaths. Instruments used: nylon guitar, xylophone, flute, clarinet, tuba, french horn, cello ensemble, orchestral drum kit.

(Note: this music was in previous Telepath RPG chapters, but the instrumentation has been updated. I happen to think it's a huge improvement.)

hey I just checked this out for the first time. Ravinale is ridiculous!  Shocked Do you use a keyboard for any of this or is it all in a tracker?

I use Cakewalk Sonar for sequencing, if that's what you mean. My old keyboard actually died a few months ago, so everything is programmed in note by note at the moment.

New track added: Telepath RPG Title Theme. This is a reimagining of the theme music used in Telepath RPG Chapter 2. It uses Bass Ensemble, Viola Ensemble, Violin Ensemble, Trumpet, Trombone Ensemble, Celesta, Tubular Bell, Timpani, Cymbals, and Snare.

EDIT: I just re-coded the player so it streams the music off my server rather than coming pre-loaded with everything. It just went down from 6.5 MB to 8 KB in size, so it loads pretty much instantaneously now. Giggle

The beginning of your title theme strongly reminds me of this:



(skip to 0:18)

Your music is nicely varied and sets the mood very well. I'm always really impressed by the talent of people on these boards.

What synths do you use?

Thanks a bunch, man. These tracks all use Kontakt 3 instruments.

Interesting--I hadn't noticed that!

Newly added: boss music! "Fight For Your Life" uses a concert grand piano, violin ensemble, french horns, trumpets, timpani, cymbals, gongs, and a regular drum kit. (It's especially heavy on the french horn, with the bass line being played by the piano.)

I want to say something constructive but creating music is not my forte. I will say this though: Awesome! I really like Baz Al'Jaj. There is something about that flute that sounds so wrong that it becomes right... I don't know what I'm talking about anymore.

Thanks! Smiley

New track: Hidden Hurt, the game's "sad theme." You might notice that it builds on two of the motifs used in "Fight For Your Life." Hidden Hurt uses violin ensemble, double bass ensemble, flutes, bass clarinet, and celesta.

New track: Ghost Waltz. This is the macabre track that will play in areas inhabited by spirits. Concert piano, with a little bit of celesta, timpani, bassoon, and violin ensemble thrown in to spice things up.
