March of the Warlock King

Sire, our kingdom is in great danger. The Gweiste kingdom was overthrown by a warlock and now that warlock king along with his wizards, witches that scream in very high pitches, and his army of the dead are marching. We must prepare for war!

Many of my forum friends may not like this one. It is a dark song.

But I think it does show what a little imagination, some decent MIDI sound sources, and BiaB can produce.

BiaB style - Very Slow Trance - Like N
PBM = 65
I deleted the drum track.
Bass - Kontakt - preset - RA Metawave
Piano - Kontakt - preset - Fility - Cruel
Guitar - Kontakt - preset - Analog at Heart
Strings - Kontakt - preset - Aquiver - Digital Winds

I am playing the drums, horns, cymbals,and leads via my keyboard controller.
Drums - Kontakt - Kirt Hunter - Virtuoso - Killer Kettles
French horns, Trombones, Trumpets - Kontakt - Kirt Hunter - Virtuoso
Cymbals - Kontakt - Amadeus
Lead 1 - Synthmaster - preset Vangellis synth horns
Lead 2 - Kontakt - preset Julian Sounds Lost Lore

My goal this weekend is to move just enough each day so that no one pokes me to see if I'm dead or not.

Hi Mario,

This is an inspiring piece of music and perfect for a movie score.
Well done.

The music fits your description very well. C'est tres dramatique! ('scuse my French).


My music may not set the world on fire but if it causes a glow in just one person's heart, it has all been worthwhile smile

I think it does show what a TON of imagination and the right tools can produce, Mario. Dark is good if for no other reason that to help us appreciate the light. Man, I can imagine this army you describe both in words and sound coming over the crest of the hill overlooking the town and all the townsfolk running and screaming in chaos and fear. Their screams are overshadowed by the war drums. At the very end I'm sure I saw the town's war hero calling his stead and waving his magic sword glowing red overhead.


Enjoy whatever happens!

Mario,

Good "cinematic" piece. I like the "dark" of it.

I found the cymbals a bit annoying - jumping out of the mix like they were in a different space. The rest of the mix is nice, cohesive. (The cymbals got to a better place at the end).

Good title! The music "describes" that perfectly! Big, ominous, foreboding...

Cool.

You will have a part 2 released soon where the rightful King along with his righteous army returns and slays this wicked warlock along with his wizards and witches.

"Very Slow Trance" that is how it all started.

Marty, your imagined scenes were exactly what I was thinking and hoping others would feel the same so thank you for that.

I have always had a huge imagination. In fact in high school art class I did a paper mache dragon and wrote sci-fi novelettes.

Thanx for the very kind review.

Thanx Floyd and you are correct. Something happened between the mix down in Studio One Pro 5 and/or SoundCloud's conversion that amplified those cymbals. I should have caught that but didn't.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
