Yep. I write enough music for those, it's nice to write a duty-free one for a change. :reivsmile:

Oh, Reives . . . you've outdone yourself with this one. If I weren't a moral person who believed in goodness and love and the power of justice, I would steal it.

I'm going to have another listen! :reivsmile:

That was beautiful! Even if you didn't write it for the game, you could still definitely use it.

(oh, and were all of those instruments on notepad09 when you got it?/can you download new instruments for notepad?)

Thanks everyone! c: Glad ya guys enjoyed it! And naw, it's not going to be used in a project - that defeats the purpose of writing something that's not for a project. :P I learned things from writing it that can be applied to future pieces though, of course!

The instrument sounds aren't from finale (although it may have some of those instruments as well, or at least similar-sounding ones). They're from EWQL's sound libraries.

I love the first few chords of the progression, it's so relaxing. And EWQL has a rainmaker? That's awesome, they have such a great effect. What's K.S. stand for?

Hmmm... that might be a good guess. I was thinking more like Kansas Schnitzel or something like that.
