      Hey Jeff I've got a request.
      As we are all aware Sir Monty Oum is AMAZING at DDR, and any good game of DDR needs a good soundtrack so if you may pass along the idea to have possibly in an extra or even post season to have Monty's character in RWBY do something crazy while playing DDR and I bet you could compose something beautiful for it. A simple dream from a fan of the show, I know this will probably go unrecognized but a simple dream none the less thx for reading Jeff and thank you for all the endless hours of music you've given to us.

      Hello Mr. Williams!

      My name is Tobias Grabher and I'm a electronic music producer from Austria. My artist name is "Statice".
      I've seen the trailers for "RWBY" and the episodes until now, and it's an incredible series.
      Especially the songs "Red Like Roses" and "Mirror,Mirror" stuck in my head. Wonderful masterpieces of music, thanks a lot for them.

      I have to admit that I'm not the best producer since I'm a bit new in music production (bit more than half a year).
      But it's hard to get songs for remixing since the studios won't give allowances.

      In this case I want to ask you, if you would give me the allowance to remix "Red Like Roses" and/or "Mirror,Mirror".
      I don't need anything, just your allowance to do this, which would be SO awesome.

      I would be so thankful, if you could give me the allowance to gather some more experience in music production and to create a contribution to such an incredible series.

      If you want to check out one of my productions first to get an example of my work, here's a Youtube Link to my latest production:

      Best regards,
      Tobias Grabher (Statice)

        Well, it looks like you're not interested in a remix of one of those songs. That's too bad. Thanks anyway for at least reading this message, if you did so.
        Best wishes,
        Statice

      Hey there Jeff, hope all is still going well for you out there. Just felt like saying hello and say keep up the amazing work. Your music still resonates in my mind day in and day out :) Really having a hard time deciding my favorite RWBY music between From Shadows, Mirror Mirror, and This Will Be the Day.

        Awesome. I think I should be getting to use that program in my audio production class this semester, so hopefully that all goes well. Perhaps I'll get to do some audio mixing and work with you at Roosterteeth one day. (Life goal alert).

        Sometimes I use PT, but often I dont have the time to export everything out of Logic...so I just mix in Logic where I make it in the first place. PT is a much better sounding program for mixing though.

      • Alex_K Alex

        I'm always digging the music. And I am doing well, thank you for asking :) I hadn't written in a while and wanted to check in. Also, I know you've probably said this somewhere, but do you use Pro Tools for sound mixing and editing? I'm looking to expand my repertoire to include production and post production sound work.

      Hey Jeff if you were to receive one of the weapons from RWBY which one would you prefer, and please don't say Crescent Rose that's would be impossible to explain to the TSA, or would you prefer one of your own design?

      Hey, just stopping by to say great job. You're work is fantastic and inspiring, in the sense that I play your music whenever I feel like writing something. Love your work on Red vs Blue and with RWBY it has been fantastic so far. I also love how they set the tone for each series. Really hope to see much more of you in the future.

      • BitOfABadass

        Mostly Science-Fiction and Fantasy with a lot of action and some humor. It's not really professional, but I do hope to get better, and having good inspiration helps a lot. Specially when the characters are so different from one another. Thank you for replying. That was very cool of you.

      Thanks for the add I've been watching Roosterteeth for 7 years and I would like to think I know a little something about music. I believe you are one of the greatest composers/writers of music of our generation. It is amazing how you can write and compose so many different types of music. You should win a Grammy for the RWBY soundtrack, never have I heard such amazing music and the vocals are just jaw droppingly good. Casey makes Lady Gaga, Rhianna, ect look like pure garbage. So after writing a paragraph, Thank You.

        Hahaha your so right about Lady Gaga and no problem hopefully I'll see you at RTX 2014, right now I got enough money for plane tickets but I'll only be 17 so I might not be able to live anywhere but I'll make it happen even if I sleep on a bench its worth it :)

        Hey! Thanks man, that's ridiculously kind and misguided of you. smiley0.gif

        I'm pretty sure it's Lady Gaga that makes Lady Gaga look like garbage, but she's probably a cool chick and wears some badass clothes. But I will tell Casey you sent those kind words too. You can say hi tho her at roosterteeth.com/xxcaseyleexx

        Thanks again for the paragraph and the kindness!

        I'm flat out busy now, and can't get to the requests for sheet music, as much as I do want to provide them. I can only tell you that, when I have time, I will put out as much as I can, and I've been asked for that one a bunch!

      Jeff my man you've done it again! RWBY soundtrack is flippin epic so far. Been meaning to ask ya something for ages but never got around to. How closely do you work with the guys when it comes to the soundtrack? Would they tell you "do this, this and this" or do you interpret it in your own way? Either way the result is epic music! :D

        oh, well you know, there's a mixture. Sometimes they have an idea, sometimes I agree, sometimes I disagree haha. Sometimes i just nail it the first time around, sometimes they ask for a little change. Sometimes I get my way, sometimes I dont. What matters is that we are flexible and just try to see our way to what is best for the given scene, you know?

        Thanks so much for the good word--I'm really glad you are enjoying RWBY and the music!!!!

      Hey Jeff,

      I was wondering if I could get in touch with you again. You may not remember me, since I fell off the face of the Earth for about two years, but I used to go by "TeddyJ" on this site. School has been keeping me busy all this time, but now that I have graduated, I have more time to dedicate to music.

      I'm working on new music that will blow all of my old stuff out of the water and I can't wait to share it with you and the community. One of my projects is to remake the RvB S8 remix I made three years ago (the vocals sound horrible in my opinion). I recently bought Ableton Live, and it is way superior to Garageband.

      I've been catching up to all the RT stuff I missed out on, and I must say that you and Nico keep getting better and better. I'm really digging the RWBY soundtrack right now.

      -TJ

      p.s. Sorry in advance, because I am going to sample you and Trocadero heavily :P

      Heya, Mr. Williams! Sorry to bother you, but I wanted to ask you something.

      You see, I'm working on a webcomic that I'll be releasing soon (called "The Hexagon," you can see my art and read a bit about it at my DeviantArt harry-monster.deviantart.com/, if you're interested.)

      And basically, I wanted to make a sort of musical trailer comic for The Hexagon, and I wanted to use your song "This Will Be the Day." I was just wondering if I could have your permission to use it. This will be completely not for profit and I will give you full credit and proper links and such and plenty of gratitude.

      So, if you're okay with it, I would really appreciate your approval! Thanks so much for your time! :)

      • HarryMonster

        5 years ago

        Yeah, you're definitely right, I won't use it. I wouldn't want to look like I was ripping off RWBY or riding on its coattails either. Thanks so much anyways! And keep up the amazing work with your music! :)

        usually i can say to these types of things, but I'm worried that it might seem a bit like it's a "theme" to your show/comic. I think you should contact RT and see what they say about it. If it were another song, would be easier to say yes. The theme of the show is sort of a 'big deal', if you know what I mean.

    • Flood654

      Sorry if this question has been answered already, I read through comments for about 10 minutes, but when will the full RWBY season 1 soundtrack be released one itunes, how much will it cost, and how many songs will it have? Love your music by the way, keep up the amazing work.

      • williams FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

        5 years ago

        Hi! Probably October. Probably 9.99 unless its so huge that it ends up being 2cds, which isn't impossible. It wouldn't cost 20 though...maybe 15 if there really is THAT much on it. Most likely, 9.99. I have no idea yet how much material there will be.

      I saw on Youtube the Blackbirds cover with your daughter and she was great! I noticed she sang in a lower pitch, unlike the way she sang in Forever and Mirror Mirror and was wondering if we would see any of that in the new RWBY music?

      Hey, Jeff.

      Love your music. For some reason, I feel like every single song by you that I listen to has a unique sound to it that says, "Yeah, that's Jeff Williams."

      I had a question. I've got an event coming up next week, and I wanted to know if our Public Affairs Department could use "This Will Be The Day" in a slideshow for the end of the week.

      Thanks a lot,

      Jeff you make me wish that there was a longer version of I burn, I know that it is a mash of all the other songs together, but I would really like to hear a stand alone version, that start just sounded so awesome and I was kinda sad that it ended so quickly.

        Curse their sudden but inevitable betrayal! It would be awesome to have that as an entire song :) So if that ever happens, then so much the better, but even as a brief outro, it still sounds awesome.

      I've had "This will be the day" on loop every day trying to learn to play it. Any chance you'll release a tab or sheet music of it? The solo is stumping me a little. =P

        Actually one of my students at Berklee told me today he is transcribing it--hopefully he will finish soon! My time is booked solid making new music right now, as much as I would love to sit down and put together something.

      Out of curiosity, will you be doing tracks like Episode 1 for each episode? It's a nice fit, I think it offers a more complete and orchestral(?) sound to the series, giving it a bit more atmosphere as a whole.

      • williams FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

        6 years ago

        Yeah, there was a lot of music in Ep 1....there might be less music during dialogue in future episodes. But overall, yes, planning to keep it orchestraal and cinematic.

      Just heard Red Like Roses from the trailer and it's one of the best pieces I've heard in a while. What genre or stylization is the section from 1:14 to about 1:41 called. That sticks out as the most profound part of the song in my mind.

      Jeff, I'm so sorry that your NH house got broken into! Those people are terrible and they're going to get what's coming to them! BY the way, I was a little confused when you said they took your tools. By that do you mean the tools you use to record or like hand labor tools?

      I don't know how you feel about your own music; but "This will be the day" is my new favorite song! I appreciate what you do for Rooster Teeth but if you and Casey did an album that sounded like "This will be the day" and "Red like roses" I would wait in line to buy it! But for now I will settle for just buying it on amazon. A big thank you to you and Casey!

      In your opinion which of the RWBY songs composed by you so far have been your favorite to compose, and would you say that the songs are going to get even better or stay aproximatly as awesome as they currently are which is stiff pretty fucking awesome.

        1 more question. Do you have plans for any more RT parties in Boston in the future and when cuz I will hop on the next plane out to party with The Great Jeff Williams

      • williams FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

        favorite to compose.....hmmm. well, I rather fancy the chord changes in From Shadows, and I geek out to interesting chord changes. I suppose that song is also fun because it bounces around a lot from genre to genre.

        I Burn was written in extremely short time, so that pleases the lazy ass part of me, which is a big big part of me.

        Red like Roses was fun because I was trying something very different for me, so it's always fun to experiment like that.

        Mirror Mirror was fun mostly because, after trying a lot of things and failing, once I stumbled onto the right "answer", I knew it was good.

        The newest song is more of an actual SONG, where the others are funny 'things'. So, it's fun because it feels more complete, and I was amazed to see Casey handle it, it's a challenging song.

      Can't say how happy I am that not only is there more brilliantly wonderful music right away with RWBY, but also that both songs/soundtracks were immediately available to buy! You'd win Academy Awards if you composed for movies Jeff. I haven't been able to stop listening to both songs since yesterday evening. You and Casey have once again knocked it out of the park. I don't know how you do what you do, but I'll continue to be a happy guy as long as you keep doing it! RWBY was beautiful and once again, you enhance these projects so much that I can't imagine what they'd be like without you.

        Ive worked on a couple projects as a student where ive been given freedom that most dont enjoy, so i know how liberating it can be to have the freedom to put your own vision into a piece of work. I dont think im being nice enough quite honestly, I just dont know how to perfectly phrase everything i always want to say. I personally think they have all come out wonderfully, but as the creator, i wont argue with you if you say they can come out a lot better (even though they're beautiful as is. I may have a lot to learn and dont know much about music, but i can always tell that you put in great effort evrerytime and you are hands down my favorite musician. So much of your work is new and unique to me because the sounds and themes you create are so much more intricate and special than anything i usually hear. I must say that the sections of strings brought into your work are some of the most beautiful things I have ever heard. Every piece of music you make is a gift to me as it makes me feel happy everytime I get to hear your work. Dont ever doubt the quality of your work because you are not only talented, but unique in what you do. Still hope that i get to meet you one day as well as work with you. Im more on the video production side of the spectrum, but it would be nothing short of an honor.

        You're being way way WAY too kind!! I do work pretty hard trying to find the right ideas for the scenes and doing my best to see them through. They could always turn out a LOT better, BELIEVE ME, I know this as a plain fact.

        I do believe that people can sense when you are putting your best effort in, and when you are putting your heart into it. And I do try very hard to at least do THAT.

        RT is giving me a very very cool thing to work on, and giving me a lot of freedom that a lot of composers are not given.

        Casey's sound is extremely unique, and she rises up to some serious challenges every single time we work on these songs.

        I think you sincerely for your very kind words, good sir.
