(my 2 cents...) I think the music is fantastic. Too bad that Graham theme isnt being used anymore... but im sure that whatever is replacing it will be awesome. I like Valanice Falls and also A Prophecy of His Own, but some parts im not sure about...
Great job to eveyone. Is that just synthesizers for the most part, or are there players? or a mixture? im curious :)
Im not actually dark or handsome...just tall :)

The whole soundtrack for Shadows is probably going to come close to 3 hours of music. Still in production, and though I already have the full tracklisting, I don't know exactly how long it'll be, or if it's the final tracklisting.

Cesar, you're freaking me out by being all direct and stuff. No malevolent hinting! No suffer! What is the world coming too?!?! :P

Wow! These songs are wonderful! I like Valanice Falls the best, but all the songs are great! Keep up the good work. (I'll never make it 'til December...)
All that is gold does not glitter
Not all who wander are lost
The old that is strong does not wither
Deep roots are not touched by the frost

From the ashes a fire shall be woken
A light from the shadows shall spring
Renewed shall be blade that was broken
The crownless again shall be king

Ok, I'm going to say right now that I HATE instumental music. It just means nothing to me and I don't know how anyone expects it TO mean anything. That said, all of the KQIX music truly speaks to my soul. At times I find myself holding my breath while my heart is beating faster and faster listening to my favorite track, Journey of Eternities. You don't even know how much these tracks freak me out...in a good way.

I know what you mean, Rosella.  Usually instrumental songs make me wanna vomit ;P, but there's something truly magical about Austin's pieces that has me addicted! XD

You're listening to the wrong instrumental music then! Don't you ever get bored of having to listen to yet another person trying to put into lyrics how much they love/hate someone/something? With non-vocal music you have to just let it wash over you and actually "feel" the music.

But on topic, what sampler/synths were used for the tracks? I vaguely remember someone mentioning gigastudio ages ago but i cant seem to find the post now...

Instrumental and Voiced music make me feel different ways. Voiced music force me to take the point of view of the singer and not all the time I can relate.

Instrumental, on the other hand, speaks to my soul, and lets it take whatever shape.

I'm a big fan of scores, mainly because I know how much you can say without actual words. It's like a picture, that can say more than a thousand words. Same is music, intrumental music. I have many many scores from movies and game, and I prefer them to sung pieces, with the exception of a few bands that I listen to, of course.

Anyway, Gigastudio is the right answer for Austin's pieces. Nick uses Garritan pack with something, not too sure.

But they are all being produced by the same person in Greece :D And, by the way, the Love Theme (The one you hear in Lost the Battel/Win the War), just got remade :)

Wow, that's really interesting. Usually I enjoy instrumental music far more than vocal music. If you want some good instrumental music (mixed with choral too but it's in Latin...) check out E.S. Posthumus for a more modern (not weird modern, movie theator modern) sound. EDIT: You can actually (legally!) listen to their whole album for free on their website:
www.esposthumus.com

My favorite classical composer has to be Mozart, but there are tons of other ones I enjoy, like Robert Schuman, Beethoven, Bach etc.

Also many video/computer games have great instrumental music. Off the top of my head I can think of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Grim Fandango. There are plenty others though.

I'm really shocked that people exist who don't like instrumental music! ;D Check out some of that stuff I listed, and if you don't like it, WOW! ;)

also, scores like "Last Samurai", "Legends of the Fall", "The Piano" for movies.

and for games: "Final Fantasy piano versions", "Xenosaga Episodes I and II", are some of the ones that come to my mind :)

Yeah I think it's as Cesar pointed out, different music for different occasions. Can't say im a huge fan of the established classical composers "of old" (apart from Stravinsky) but maybe it'll just take time.

Cool to hear about gigastudio though, I just managed to get the orchestral version so its nice to know what kind of quality I can expect from it.
