Sounds very Nobuo Uematsu-ish to me, a la Final Fantasy IX. Nice job :)!
Thank you. Does it? To be honest, I don't know Uematsu's music.
Check it out at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Za3r0FEVtJY ! :)
Really cool! I could imagine this being in a game. What's the name of the scale that you used here with the quarter-sharp F and quarter-flat B?
Thank you very much. This very scale just came out of my imagination. As far as I know there is no correspondent scale in classical Persian music, which of course is full of microtones. But I wanted no copy, but something in that spirit.
you've encapsulated the feel perfectly here, and that is a brilliant use of quarter tones. I've always been too afraid to use them because that's so much more complicated but this is perfect!
Thank you very much! Don't be afraid. Be adventurous in composing and do what you want or have to do!
Really cool.
I did not even know MS could play half sharps and half flats.
I think few MS users know. Either you use the quarter tone plugin https://musescore.org/en/project/quarter-tone-playback or press F8 to open the inspector (or what the english name is) where you can change the pitch to any range you want.
Thank you. I had not idea abut the plug in. I knew one could change the pitch through the Inspector but that would be a tedious job, especially if I just wanted to experiment with microtonal music and do not know any Oriental scales.
