That was pretty great. The only bad parts I found was when the voice would get really high and the sound quality of the music.

Otherwise it's really good.

Hi! What exactly did you feel was wrong with the quality? I'd love to improve on it!

Edit: make sure you're watching the video in high quality, the low quality version of the vid is awful looking.

I did watch it on high quality, and the video was much better.

It's just the sound I found was a little, strained I guess the word would be. It could be just the way you wanted it to be, or it could just be these old speakers of mine.

It's just I find the sound quality in the first 30 seconds doesn't quite match up with the rest of the video.

I didn't listen to it, but I know the quality on YouTube is atrocious.

Untrue as of a year or two ago... You must be thinking of the original format for low bandwidth users... &fmt=1
These days there's something like &fmt=34, &fmt=17, &fmt=18, &fmt=22 .. [all stereo, with progressively better quality, 22 being best.]

I'm also thinking more of the video than the audio, I think.

This got mentioned on Nicalis' blog too, So even HE thinks it's good.

Oh, and for those wondering who/what is singing, It's a vocaloid.

Hey Annie, I'm currently arranging a two piano medley of Cave Story songs, and would it be all right if I used your song in the medley?

EDIT: this thread belongs in the music subforum??

Audio: Epic to a new level. As such, I have crafted a new seal of approval in honor of the epic achievment in Cave Story-related epicness. The song itself reminds me, near the beginning, of Styx - Come Sail Away and Daft Punk - Harder, Faster, Better, Stronger. The voice in the beginning as well reminds me of early NES attempts at voice-acting, though I'm not sure if that was the intent, I do like it. As for the rest of the song, I find it haunting, but sweet.

Video: Cave Story. Need more be said?
