Hey, first off let me clarify that this is a COVER of the track from the Journey soundtrack; "I Was Born for This". Check it out here! http://goo.gl/e2wHd
It's honestly a beautiful track, as are most of the other tracks in the soundtrack.
I remixed this for a very good friend of mine, snuitergup here on Newgrounds. He's a big fan of Journey and it's his birthday today so I thought it'd be a great idea to remix this for his birthday and surprise him. I named it this because he's a CHAMP. Nah not really, I just wanted to make a reference to the original track's title... BUT HE'S STILL A CHAMP.
This uses East/West Ra quite a lot... I mostly used it for the woodwinds since Ra's woodwinds are beautiful (duduk in particular; for the record it's my favourite eastern instrument), but I also used it for an erhu. All of the drums are from Stormdrum 2, the brass and most of the strings are from Symphonic Orchestra Silver. Everything else (minus the strummed guitar which is from Virtual Guitarist 2) is from Omnisphere, including the choirs and the plucked guitar and anything else I might be forgetting.
I had to rush this submission since I am PACKED with work as always, but I think that for something like a 9-hour job this came out quite well! Doesn't compare to the submissions I spend like 30+ hours on, of course, but hopefully my friend likes it. Thanks goes to camoshark, Darrenkerwin and another friend of mine for giving me feedback along the way, especially camoshark for pointing out that the djembe in this track are impossibly hard to play since I'm using the bass hit too much. Had no time to fix it, so thankfully Stormdrum 2 was able to play it no problem :3. And thanks to you for checking the song out, please do not hesitate to leave a review :3.
