Breath of Fire - Sad Melody (Hap Mix)

Aah, oldies, made 3 years back at least; this was a very old song I made using all reason. The concepts were simple, and yet strong, make a trance song using nothing but the main melody.

I started with the piano melody in the beginning, and started a real nice and cool hard drum base. After a while, I thought the main melody was weak, so I decided to change the piano into synth. But then they sounds horrible with the piano melody, so I got lazy and made a pattern on the matrix as a controller to control the volume of the synth and that�s what gave the feel of the synth in patterns being playing on a keyboard but really it's the original piano melody that I recorded playing all along. You�ll get a little shot of the synth playing without the controller in the end of the song.

After I was finished with the song, I decided that enough was enough, and I was finished with the song, but that I still need something keep this song in tact with a classic origin. This is where I decided to bring back the piano and play the melody I played before. So now you have the main melody on the piano, and a synth, and it sounded really good.

I remember when someone used this in a video for Final Fantasy XI coming up on 4 years ago. That was pretty much how I first heard your remixes. And you've had a lot since then, I think this one will always be my favorite. Nice work!

I just wanted to let you know that you are actually my favorite musical artist. And Sad Melody has been my favorite song for the last 3+ years(string machine being a close second). Your music gets me out of those ruts and inspire me in my writings and programming, as well as life in general.

Thank You
