    I know of know programs that allow for actual words to be pronounced, but choir ahhs are a thing (at least in musescoreland).

    Also, I am revamping Miko's theme to a symphonic orchestra.

    Uhh...does anyone know how to make the musescore bass drums, violins, and to an extent, snare drums sound better?

    Also, what is Fluidsynth? Or Sound Blaster?

    Basically, what I do is play with the reverb, and failing that go find a new soundfont.

    Huh. Is there a soundfront that can make an echo-ey bass drum as an endinng for a piece, for example? Let it echo for a bar at least....

    I will re-direct here for soundfonts.

    I find the strings are improved with General User (the one I used for the re-master), but I have't tried it for the drums.

    No, musescore.com uses the default soundfont. Also, in 1.2 (but not 1.1, the soundfont re-sets itself after you exit (or maybe just when you crash*).

    Also, protip: I find many people don't know that you can use create->instruments to change the instruments of a score after creating it

    (Also, my account on musescore.com is Phantasy_snot)

    *I usually make it stop responding so untitled works I haven't save will re-open when I re-load it. I cause this by opening a very strange midi file of Viva La Vida.

    Well, I have *a* Redcloak theme now, but I'm not sure it's quite what I was looking for (owing to intentionally using a weird time signature for reasons including "goblins are a fantasy culture" and "I wanted to try it"). Don't know if I want to post it or try for something more normal.

    Dude, my first song here had some measures of 13/4. Post it.

    It's not the time signature part, it's the "not sure if it's what I was looking for" part.

    This is really, really good! I love it!

    Congratulations on your first OotS song, and I hope you compose many more

    It just occurred to me that I never actually did any of the things I considered in the post where I claimed Redcloak's theme LOL. It's 7/16 and Xykon's theme as written by Curtis is seven notes. I could have easily used it for that crazy piccolo thing...

    Meh, no reason to go changing things now.

    Have an idea for Malack but it looks like Othesemo already called that. Got nothing for LG. So maybe Roy's next?

    Do we have anything IFCC-related, besides the Darth V theme?

    I like what you did with the time signature, I think it fitted the song quite well.
    In all honesty though, It doesn't feel like Redcloak to me, but that doesn't mean it can't.
    If you get the time, try learning how to make a videoscore to have the song in fluidr3

    To be totally honest, there isn't (or shouldn't) be any stigma to composing themes to characters other people have "claimed". We all have different composing styles and views of the characters, and more music is never bad. Go for whatever you want.

    Oh, and Othesmo, is it okay if I rehost your songs on Mediafire? 4shared is a little annoying, requiring accounts for download and a 20 second waiting time.

    Like I said, wasn't sure if it was really what I was looking for either.

    I'll look into videoscoring. Thanks.

    Agreed in principle, but I think we should have one of everything before we go and repeat ourselves, yeah?

    The waiting period is over- after exactly five months, I've finally gotten around to finishing Vengeace (Malack's Theme), hosted on mediafire for your convenience.

    I just thought of another possible subject.

    What is it, you ask? It's a surprise. Sorry

    Oh, and I'll be working on a "Roy in the afterlife" song.

    Vengeance sounds very RPG-esque, very nice.

    EDIT:

    "Roy Greenhilt: Swordsman On the Mount" complete. (Man, that's a terrible pun.)

    Well, complete-ish, I guess. I was originally going to make it the second of a three-movement Greenhilt piece, but I figured might as well put up what I have so far for critique. My only complaint is that it's too short, which is understandable as I made it rather quickly, but I'm not sure where to expand.

    As for getting the correct soundfont, I think what I want to do about that is turn those into videos for Youtube, but my google-fu is not bringing anything useful to me. Tips appreciated. I've got a Mac.

    I've put it in the OP.

    As far as critique goes, I think that while it is a really good opening for a theme for Roy, it really doesn't lead anywhere (yet). It'd be good as the first part of a suite, but I think it needs some more action. Getting a few more instruments (besides the choir and percussion, you only have a trumpet) might help. In sum, I think it will sound much better when the rest of the piece is finished. It's a little unstable as a standalone piece.

    Thanks, I think you're right.

    Although it was meant to be the middle of a piece, not the beginning of one.

    A "WIP" tag in the OP might be appropriate. It's your OP though--I'll leave that call to you.

    I think...I guess I think that it just needs to to have a little more action. Roy's a fighter, and a slow, meaningful theme is great for conveying his backstory, his seriousness, and his character in general, but he's also a guy with a big honking sword filled with kickass to the brim. I think it needs to have a slightly more fast-paced section at some point.

    Also, the transition between the two pieces is a little abrupt because of the sudden change in timpani rhythm, but that's just a small thing.
