Written for a game I'm making. I like to use a lot of shifting meter and unusual time signatures (11/8 and 13/8, for instance) and modal mixture.

Going for an energetic rock feel.

Sounds pretty awesome. Great rhytm, melody and mixture of instruments.

I might mp3'erize this, sounds even better through the soundfont I use.

I can't remember the last time I was impressed by a MIDI song. Nice work

Thanks!

DaVince, what SoundFont do you use? I tried MP3-izing it, and it worked somewhat, but wasn't great.

Sounds very good! It reminds me of RPG battle music.

Not far from what it's intended for. A tactical, turn-based RPG.

Musica Theoria v2. It's a bit difficult to find on the internet, but it's out there. If you can't find it, I can upload it for you if you like.

Heck, I'll just tell you.

The tempo is steady, even across the various time signatures. The value of the eighth note is constant, which means it SOUNDS like the song's tempo is changing when it's actually just the meter.

The first measure (which is mostly there to facilitate looping, but I liked it when I added it) is in 12/8. The next time change is 4/4, which causes the tempo to sound like it's going faster.

Then, we go into 11/8. In terms of eighth notes, the beats are like this (X = downbeats, x = upbeats):

Xxx Xxx Xxx Xx

Every four measures, we change into 13/8 for a measure, which goes like this:

Xxx Xxx Xxx Xx Xx

We move back into 12/8 for the chordal/guitar solo sections.

Xxx Xxx Xxx Xxx
