I've been looking for a good virtual instrument with a dulcimer or yangqin for a while, would you mind sharing which one you use?

Wonderful song btw :) (too bad it's taking away a bit of exposure from your other recent song which I enjoy even more)

It's always the songs I put the least time & effort into that are the most popular, lol.

The dulcimer plugin I use is this little beauty:

I also used it in Half Man's song. It has a beautiful tone

Awesome! Thanks a lot I'll definitely check this out :)

i'm sorry but in my opinion this is not a good song, very repetitive and your rapping is rather monotone and artificial. there's just no rhythm or flow between the verses, making it all come off rather boring and uninspired. the music also seems very shallow, like you just put a bass underneath some voice clips from GTA IV, put some funny sound effects behind it, and called it a day. especially compared to some of the amazing earlier songs, this one is a dissapointment

Well, Niko isn't a rapper... and his voice is also rather monotone. It would sound totally weird doing a Blood Of The Creed style fast-rap verse in a song that is essentially an impersonation of a very slow, downbeat character.

The music was modeled on the GTAIV soundtrack, which is also equally 'shallow'. If you want to get technical, this song actually has far more layers of sound and instrumentation than the OST. Also, the song contains no voice clips from the game.

Still, you are perfectly entitled to not like the song and that's fine by me :)
