This is my latest AJ port track, the AA Gumshoe theme! [not perfect, but a start] Soundcloud

A long time ago, I branched out into knowing how to produce music. The pieces I made were pretty short to say the least :P (Just look at the first few tracks I've listed here, and you'll see what I mean).
Now, I *slightly* have a better understanding of music programs and all, and I'm here to share what I've been able to come up with so far.
As someone who's still rather new to the music scene, I really have no sense of composing/arranging.
For this reason, I tend to focus more on experimentation/unique sounds.NOTE: You may NOT use these ANYWHERE! Unless you think some of these are good enough to actually be in something....Then you must ask me for permission!
So I'll try to start from the very first things I remember composing, as always, HEADPHONES recommended:
-Was going for a super basic logic theme.
Dunno why it sounds so quiet though x)
-Another version I did as the first....though something went wrong with actual recording, dunno why.
-I interpreted this as a more serious logic theme akin to something to AJ's logic at first.
But then I didn't realize that it *could* be a CE theme if I were to make a faster, more varied version of it :o. I can agree though it got too repetitive and "noisy" (what? It's unfinished :p)
-This was something I was doing for a chica member named Holhol (she's the author of the case called TCrackdown whose Part 1 got recently released.
Some conflict happened with her recently, so I wanted to compose something small for her to use as a "signature" so people could instantly recognize that she made a trial...But all I could do was come up with this sound, and not actually any REAL composing.
-Another version of the above, cleaner sound and actually flowed very well....Still VERY short though.
-An actual "piece" I did for Holhol, still rather short (but it's only meant to be used as a case intro music anyway).
I was actually displeased about this one mainly because there was this really nice sound I had wanted to use before...But due to recording issues, I had to use a "tinkerbell"-like sound :x
Also, it doesn't exactly flow well...I was forced to only record loops for a certain time, and not do it on one go x(, had to arrange everything on audacity.
-This was done in Fl Studio (I had absolutely no experience, so I was playing around with some of the packs that came with the program).
I actually thought I had something really nice going....A good lounge/club beat...Unfortunately, I lost the project file, so all you're getting is :11 seconds of what could've been a potential club hit xD
-A sound effect that I'm thinking of using for when a certain someone in my fan-game does an "imitation"...
Made it all from scratch....My co-author ED though thinks this sounds like it's for "wonking"[aka damage]...Really not my intention if others think that o.O
-Was going for something Mass Effectey.
The composers of Mass Effect really did nice bringing a Blade-Runner-esque atmosphere to the FIRST game, so I wanted to see if I could at least produce a sound that could *somewhat* fit within that universe....Don't know if I succeeded or not.
It's all pure synth btw, nothing else used. Which is why it's probably going to be really repetitive xP
-AA Justice For All CE ~ Moderato (AJ Remake)
Hey folks, after digging through Youtube and some AA music forums, I really wanted to see what would happen if someone "ported" a theme from one of the old AA games to something like AJ.
This is the result of my efforts. It took me an entire day to try to get the instrumentations right. I used my own custom soundfont to achieve as best of a replication of JFA's sounds as I could muster at the time.
It's far from perfect (I hear some unnecessary reverb which I can't point my finger on where the source is coming from), but instrumentation-wise, it's pretty much as authentic as can be. The instrumentations I used were ones personally ripped straight from the game.NEW!
-AA Justice For All: Cross Examination ~ Allegro (AJ Remake)
I was struggling with this for weeks after the Moderato version, however, I forgot to work on it for months, and just found out sometime in the middle of June that I was pretty much almost done with the porting process. Here's the result of what I could pull off. There's still some unnecessary reverb I keep accidentally putting in (I believe I can safely say it's probably a release knob being too high for one of the channels). Drums could be arranged better, but this is just a port. As usual, AJ instruments were pretty much used.NEW!
-AA Trials and Tribulations: Godot's Theme (AJ Remake)
This didn't take long, however, I couldn't find a saxophone instrument that existed in the AJ sound data files, so I had to make do with something else. Other then that, all AJ instruments were used. Tried to ensure reverb was kept as low as possible.
...I THINK this is all I have for now...Not sure xD
Anyways, since I'm not really good at finishing anything I do, I don't think it would be fair for me to do requests, unless you're looking for a type of unique sound xP
Comments and Criticisms appreciated.
Also Note: My compositions are currently only at CR, Soundcloud, and now the Voice Acting Alliance.
If you see it anywhere else, please hit me up ;)
