So, I never really intended for Only The Beginning to end the way it did... I wanted to do more with it, but I just couldn't figure out what at the time.
And over the past few days, I've figured out what I wanna do with it... so here it is...
On top of extending the song, I also redid the first "big section"... because I didn't like how I did it the first time. And to be honest, I'm still not 100% satisfied with it, but it's a hell of a lot better now than it was before at least.
Also... this is officially the most CPU intensive project I have ever done, I have so much automation and so many VSTs running that it lags my computer like hell every time the autosave kicks into gear.
Lastly... I've used a new synth (NI Razor) I bought not that long ago for the first time in the extended section. It's just a lame little lead to compliment the bass and plucks... but gotta start using it somehow.
