yeah, I can agree with that - I use it to count notes so i don't have to guess the arpeggios… but's it's already done in my head, so it's just a time saver… had to get a new one, since i was dumb enough to give away my casio VL tone, with a calculator…

… might as well use a guitar though. and scream the lead while shredding the chords. :)

This is funny, I bought a keyboard a few months ago and really agree with the sentiment that it's easier to get harmonies right when playing the piano. Even though I can't play it well at all.

@Ole: That's because you're the Mozart of SID. It's all in your head.

I agree with Stein. I can't play either, but it is good for chord changes etc. :)

I can't play the piano to save my life either, but strangely enough, I don't feel like it's easier to experiment with chord-changes and melodies on it.

Thanks guys :D This inspires me to work with the piano more. Even though I can't play to save my life, it's a lot easier to experiment with chord changes AND melody simultaneously on the piano than on the guitar.

R. Kelly or not, the first part of the tune is amazing, probably the best that has come out of this compo. The second part not so much (the lead is still great in this part but I think the backing becomes too dominant). In total I think this is my favourite tune.

Næ! That does sound like R Kelly.

But I think that Mr Kelly (or perhaps his producers…) might have ripped that off too. I think it's a movie theme from somewhere - an old one - and it's also very disney-like.

I like this tune a lot!

I don't like R kelly though, or his music. Or the horse he rode in on.

The galway esque arpeggio stabs and the filtered playful lead are part of the prosonix style for me.

Oh, man. Bjørn told me the tune sounded like "I believe I can fly", but I just ignored him. I'm glad I did, because now I had to listen to it and the intro melody is so similar it's spooky... I probably wouldn't have finished it. Actually I had to restrain myself from drifting too much into Alan Menken territory (I was inadvertently moving into the chorus of "Colors of the Wind") and I think the R. Kelly song also has some very 'Disneyesque' qualities. It's the first tune I've composed entirely on the piano and I think it affects what kind of chords I use. It was a very cool experience. Finally, it's interesting that people say there's a "Prosonix style". :) How would you define that? I couldn't myself. Thanks for all your comments, btw! :)

The mood in the very beginning truly fits for the moment when hi-score list appears

Indeed, kind of R.Kelly at the beginning, but later on it's becoming very interesting. I like it, even thought it is very short.

Sounds a bit like R. Kelly - I believe I can fly. Anyway sounds good!

Yeah, I ran out of time, sorry about that. If I find the motivation I'll make a longer version.

1st part is nice, 2nd part ends too soon, just when it was becoming interesting.
