    @Krichotomy: Thanks! Question: what would be the best thing to do about the overlapping frequencies? I worry about them a bit...

    @johnfn: Nothing to be jealous about. Truth be told, I've had to survive with those — really down on funds + wanting to make good music = this is what happens really.

    @johnfn: I will do. I still haven't touched it since — concentrating on the lyrics for Kingdom Hearts II's 'Sacred Moon'.

    @johnfn: I'll do my best. I haven't touched this since November and I'm not sure how to continue the bridge section -- that's the ONLY part I'm stuck in.

    @Krichotomy: And because of the series it was inspired by (Ar Tonelico) -- I honestly couldn't care about that piece either, myself.

    @Krichotomy: Because AlbertStClare couldn't identify with the lyrics any more, and it wouldn't be fair to credit him as an artist for lyrics he himself rejected.

    @Krichotomy: Admittedly though: when I was mixing this my previous headset was dead on one side, and I had to do everything by guesstimation. As you can tell, not a wise move on my part. There was the MAC Christmas contest, and I wanted to take part in it, but I decided I couldn't.

    @Krichotomy: No, I think you're quite right about the compression. Up till not too long ago, all my pieces had this terrible amount of compression. (I'm not too sure if I ever brought up Fruity Limiter in one of my replies to you, but I wasn't consciously doing anything... and Fruity Limiter was on the Master track and my word, did it ruin everything XD)

    @PeterSatera: Could do. Also, since I started using FL in 2010 and only concentrated on musicality back then, I didn't give two hoots about panning this - so all the instruments here are centre-panned and mushing with each other. This one definitely needs work, if I'm to do it again! XD

    @Dylan V. Harper: I'm not sure whether eighth notes would work given my awful mixing — and also, because the time signature here is ambiguous (is it 3/4? 6/8?). But warmth is definitely something! : ) Also, I found the problem with the ducking in volume, which seems to be a recurring theme in nearly all my pieces to date — I used to have Fruity Limiter on the master track, and that really compressed everything, and so things sounded like they were being ducked. Still, thanks for pointing it out!

    @Dylan V. Harper: That, and the bassoon also sounds thin (at least, when all those other instruments make a heavy backing). Be remedying that when I tend to this piece. : )

    @Dylan V. Harper: Because the original had vocals, but I had not recorded proper vocals for this one yet. This vocal fragment actually comes from Juventud Version 1 (which is on Newgrounds).

    @Krichotomy: @PeterSatera But do you both not think it drowns out the drums? At least when I hear it, the bass frequencies are off the charts >_<

    @Krichotomy: If I can find the lyrics to this, I'll gladly complete it.... :S AlbertStClare (that's his username on NG) wrote the lyrics some time back, but I can't seem to find them anywhere.

    @Krichotomy: That's a shakuhachi -- glad you like it! I probably need to tone it down though, since the bass and drums were being drowned when the shaku came in. What do you think?

    @Krichotomy: It is, isn't it? :D For the calm it gives, and also that sense of hope, Lead, Kindly Light is top on my favourite hymns -- I rendered it into a VGM for a bullet hell shooter I've got in mind, and I wanted to keep that calm throughout. The real kudos goes to the people who wrote that original tune/lyrics. : )

    @Krichotomy: That's because I haven't recorded the vocals yet, sorry..... ^_^' The original had vocals from the intro, and I do intend to record them once I get the mixing for Juventud about right. Also, the song itself is not complete. As for vocals coming out of that 'little box': you're quite right. Integrated mic + poor EQ stressing only the high frequencies = this.

    @PeterSatera: This will have to be redone completely (demo FL9, so I lost the entire music project once I closed it), but will definitely bear this in mind.

    @Trevor Crookston: Admittedly, it does feel awkward. The original song had the same key change too, and admittedly, it could've been transitioned better. I've lost the original file because I did this on FL 9 (demo), but I'll bear this in mind when rehashing this. : )

    You've got something going on. : ) Why not try a koto soundfont or something of the sort? Newgrounds has a forum thread with over 800 soundfonts in it, so I can definitely refer you to their Audio Portal. I'd love to hear this when this is done!
