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

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

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.

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.

Hi, Mario !


This is fantastic !
As the others have pointed out
this is film music and if it is not
you´ll better have the retreat
well prepared in advance ? Why not come over to
Spain to see me in September ?

Cheers
Dani

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.

I was actually thinking about doing that sometime.

Thanx for commenting.

Ear Training Games in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows

October 1, 2021 is National Kids Music Day!

Head to the Practice Window in Band-in-a-Box® for Windows, and you'll see fun games that are fun ear training options for kids: Music Replay & Pitch Invasion.

Of course, you don't have to be a kid to like these games, I think there a fun way to learn at any age!

Music Replay is just what it sounds like - the program plays a 1-bar melody, and the user plays it back. Get it right, and you'll keep building that melody (and skill) within the game - get it wrong, and you'll be met with a warning tone and have to try again... it's quite addictive, and a lot of fun!

If you like a classic arcade game, then you'll love Pitch Invasion! We've managed to incorporate aliens with pitch-recognition skills in this exciting game, where you'll match the pitch of the alien ship descending towards your planet trying to destroy your collection of instruments - match the pitch and you've saved your instruments, make a mistake and the ship keeps coming... you'll have a few tries to get it right, if you're quick, but if all your instruments are destroyed - it's game over! The game speeds up as your skills improve, and you'll earn points along the way, with bonus points available throughout the game.

Open up your Band-in-a-Box® for Windows today to give it a try!

These ear training games are also included in Musical Arcade for Windows.
