My game would need about 10 songs to have an all original sound track.
07. secret level
09. achievement screen
10. last master
How much would something like this cost?
Generally speaking, for those wondering about custom audio costs, the rates vary depending on song length and the license type you require (exclusive vs. non-exclusive). Exclusive songs are more expensive (though still reasonable), since the ability to resell music is what helps me to keep the prices so low in my library. It's also good to let me know if you have a specific budget you need to work within so I can try my best to accommodate you.
The game I'm working on currently is pretty short and not as polished as I'd like. Right now I'm hoping with practice and Photoshop I can develope games worthy of purchase. When that time comes I'll definitely keep LuckyLionStudios in mind.
For the songs that require MIDI, I use Sibelius, Finale or another sheet music notation program.
For digital instruments, I use a variety of VSTi's such as EastWest Quantum Leap Colossus, LA Scoring Strings and many others.
I then use ProTools to record, mix and master each song. It's a fairly long process, and most of the software/hardware is expensive, but there are always much cheaper alternatives that can still produce good results.
To be honest, I'd be searching for something exactly like this in maybe 6 months to a year. I'm working on a fairly large scope indie project, and I've taken to doing virtually everything myself, and I was afraid I'd have to look into learning better music writing skills once it gets to that point. But I'll keep an eye on this
