What happened to the soundclick players on the posts?

Seems Soundclick has finally disabled the embedded player.

I notice overnight all the music links on this blog are gone. Here is a blog post on how much that affected my hits: https://anttismusic...

Unknown Soldier




I began the day watching these two YouTube videos: 


Alex Moukala comparing different Orchestral instruments. He thought the Nucleus was 
the best. It is a little expensive. Searching more information about it I found out that there 
is a cheaper LE version: 



It does not include everything of course. But.. I splurged the dough for it. 

So here is the first piece I made using it. (And the free Sonatina for piano)

Oh and "Nucleus epic trailer sounds". Which is also from nucleus but FREE! 

I know the bass sound in the beginning clashes with the song a little.. 

How did I make the song? Basically i am tired today. I just played couple 
notes endlessly to make almost a minute long progression with just the 
base note at places and simple "melody" at most places. I chopped that. Wrote some beats
on the top. Added woodwinds, then the piano. The name? It made me think 
of Sibelius. Sibelius made me think of a famous Finnish movie called "The 
Unknown Soldier". 

What do I think of Nucleus? It makes me realize. . I could have taken a 
lot of shortcuts if I had more money. Software like this is the missing piece 
we poor artists can not afford. 

If you are super skilled you can make poop strings should better with 
audio engineering but it is a added step that can kill your inspiration before 
you even write the song. Good sounds inspire. Tedious work not so much. 

At the same time, yes, some people can write great sounding stuff on 
free instruments. It is about the user in the end. 


The project is made with FLstudio v 20.6 (new version is more stable)


 The FLP file is at: (59 Unknown Soldier.zip)


It uses:
