UPDATE 12-28-09: I've uploaded an updated version that has been remastered. Thanks for the suggestions guys!

This is an extended version of the music for Krin's futuristic RTS Colony, with new material added throughout. This develops the Capitalist theme. It was hard picking a category to put it up on Newgrounds, since it's a hybrid of orchestral and rock. Hopefully I found the right place!

As always I greatly appreciate comments. I will make sure to read each and every comment posted, and I'll do my best to respond to reviews when I can! Visit my userpage and website for more music and news!

One of the best and most epic songs i've heard on NG.
I really like how this switches between different atmospheres.

I would animate something just to use this song...if i could...

Keep your great work up!

dramatic.

This is really great. Excellent tonal variety throughout the track give it a very lively and broad feel. The strings sound powerful and emotional without being exaggerated. Percussions are also on point. Additionally, the whole thing just feels like it's been mastered pretty well, you did a great job there.

The greatest thing about this track is that it maintains a great orchestral sound but also interestingly combines elements of rock and electronica. The synth and guitar sounds are beautifully integrated. However, I do have say that I feel that the guitar sounds a little muddy and distant at times. I wish it had more presence in the mix. While the tone of the guitar is fine, I wish it was maybe equalized a little differently to make it stand out a bit more.

This is are really great track. You have a great sound going, lots of interesting ideas, and it comes off as very professional. 5/5

I'm still fine tweaking some levels, and as I said in a previous reply I'm not quite happy with the guitar yet. Your ideas have been noted!

Thanks for your support!

has some pretty good stuff going on

Nice work here, I really like orchestral rock. I'm not sure whether you used samples or a real guitar, but the solo guitar sounds realistic. Props for that. I would have liked to hear a lot more lower, dirty and distorted guitar in the bass line. Also, I don't like the orchestral sample. I know it is really hard to find an orchestral synth that sounds realistic, but I think that if you did, it would just add that much more to the song. Finally, I would really have liked heavier or louder drums. But I really enjoy what you have going on. I liked the flow of the song; the transitions were seamless, and once again, I loved the solo guitar. You did a good job mixing the rock feel and the ethereal atmosphere.

Kudos on a job well done.

DavidOrr responds:

Thanks for the review NightHawk. You know, I like the orchestral sounds. I think synthetic part is with the reverb, which I am DESPERATELY in need of an upgrade (I'll probably spring on a nice-quality reverb soon). I'm actually much less happy with the solo guitar (which is sampled, not real). I've spent a lot of time trying to make it sound as realistic as possible, so perhaps my ears are hyper-sensitive to it!

Great ideas about a thicker distorted guitar and bigger drums. I'll be making a few more revisions to this since I'm not quite happy with it yet, so those will be add to my to-do list.

Thanks again!
