Hello !

Here is a new music : Medieval Game !

Let's start with the Intro : the Title Screen :)



Next time, we will follow the four guitarists which fight against monsters with... their guitars 8)
Always climbing, forever :)

Nice!

Creative, gentle and subtle. Interesting lines in the parts.

Each guitarist has a beautiful tone.

What guitars are you playing? It looks like they're from the same maker.

I'm also curious about how the audio recording was done... microphones used, mic distance from the guitars.

Thank you for your comment Lawler !

The guitar I have is a Jean-Marie Fouilleul model. Indeed, it is the same maker for the 4 guitarists... and it is the same person :wink:

So now I say that, I have to answer your second question : the audio recording !
So there it is : I cannot record myself exactly the same time. So the video is not a direct record audio. The microphone I used was a DPA 4099G : the distance between the guitar and the micro is none because it has to be cliped to the guitar (I put it not far from the bridge). It is a useful microphone when you are in an environment with some noise around you. However there are some frequencies which cannot be heard.

You may understand now why the music is a little rigid. I do not have so much possibilities with the tempo. I try to be synchronized with myself as much as I can :)
Always climbing, forever :)

Thanks, Aitua. So if I'm understanding you correctly, the vid is a play-through and the audio was done before hand via multitracking. The guitarists did a great job of staying in sync with the audio during the filming. Nice job.

Thank you Lawler !
The next part of the music is now available, with the same technique.
However it is not as subtle as the intro : it is more like a blockbuster 2D RPG. :mrgreen:
