Event Horizon: Gotta Go Fast Edition

Original version: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/696406

This one was interesting to make.
First, I wanted to do a straight up remix (with the stems) and just flip it into a more chaotic DnB style with crazy rhythms, but the stems were down. Instead of just asking Xtrullor for them, I turned it into a remake with new sounds.
Second, people were talking about mixing on Lockyn's Discord, and whether EQing was really that important to the mix. Other than sound design (and beating the guitars into shape), I made this without any mixing EQs, just being careful with the volume levels.

Hope you like it!

this is awesome, i cant find any noticeable mistakes, though i have some things

the sidechain compression isn't very effective throughout the song.

the growls may seem random

and you need to add more voicing to make the synths sound more fat and detuned

now the pros:

the growls may seem random are quite sharp and used in the song in a good way

the style of the song varies during sequences

there is also variation of sequences of the song

hope this was helpful

The rolls that come after the drop appear off the beat to me. Kind of annoying in that sense. Otherwise, awesome.

I think this is very good, but I think you are somewhat wrong about this being more in the same vein as Xilent and Au5.

Sure, the sound design is similar-- lots of combs and phasers, with a bit of drive on them, but the arrangement is totally different. Hard to pick out a lot of transitions in a clean in concise way, and the rhythm just seems... messy, but it has its perks, like distinguishing your sense and style in music from others. Plus, Au5 is not much into DnB songs as he is into breakbeat/glitch and dubstep, save for a few songs like Blue (with Fractal, though).

And really, no, Stardust is not wrong about it seeming gritty and unclean-- better EQing and appropriate ducking is required to get a cleaner mix, which is hard when the rhythm is indescribably unique like you've done. Plus, there's some definite crowding in frequencies where the basses and snares collide.

Overall, I give it a 4.5/5, because it surely has its merit, and no doubt you've earned the recognition you've been given. It's just a bit unpolished in some aspects. Great melodies though, albeit mostly are those of Xtrullor.

It's a great remix,though I think that needs a little more chorus IMO :D


iamwontolla responds:

There's no such thing as too much chorus :D

(except when you're using it to hide auto-tuned vocals but that's another story)
