Fantastic! I changed my sig immediately after I posted, I made sure i saved the other one though! Love em! :D
Reviews posted. I really enjoyed listening to and reviewing all of these entries. This was my fav contest thus far, as far as the contest pulling hidden talent out of individuals. I was very surprised at what I was hearing. Congrats to all of you! I understand the level of commitment and time it takes to participate in these, I really appreciate your efforts to enrich both your own performance level, and the quality of our Audio Portal community.
and as usual I can't do it with my kickass judge roster- the 2 of which I've known for almost my entire stay here at newgrounds - thus we are all very close and I believe that helps in making all this run smoothly - I know I can rely on them all to come through for me on time :)
so thanks realmguys <3
also glad you like your sig PeterSatEra hehehe :P
Congrats to Satera, too bad you didn't make first MrMusicalLion. All these songs are pretty much amazing, IMO.
I'm back, I guess.

^_^ Thanks Soapbubble :D Mr.Satera's entry was extremely well made indeed :)
Thanks guys, your comments are really appreciated! It was an amazing challenge and pushed me to aim to get a more industrial sound.
I really didnt expect to win to be honest, I thought the raw talent of other musicians, really were going to top it. MrMusicalLion, freaked me out and InYourDreams' blew me with his guitar skills. A lot of amazing entries, it was a pleasure to take part.
Kahnor111, just keep going, remember its not a vicious competition, it's to encourage us to improve and get us interacting with each other. You should chat in the audio forums more often, you have a lot of audio tracks, ive learned so much from these guys by simply reading and discussing, software, hardware and techniques - it's really worth it!

How long did you spend on your piece, roughly? Also what sound banks [refills/samples] did you use etc and what program did you make the music in?
MrMusicalLion freaked me out
This pleases me. Greatly >:)

no comment lol.
I can't log into windows right now as it recently fried the graphics. (Too much 3D strain and rendering over the years no doubt). So i cant give a instrument per instrument output, as there were roughly 80 of them. However, I can try and sum up if you're happy with that.
The process took about 20 hours I'd say. I say the process, because countless versions were made, as well as individual experimentation to get things sounding how I wanted. All in all, 2 intro's we made and 3 action parts were created. The project is made into 2 flstudio file, so I could load in samples that were going to be used in only action, and only in intro. I made the end specifically to merge with the second half, as I knew this would happen.
Stuff that I used:
Consisted of (lots of altered Nexus, 90% of synths - but really really altered with effects, and individually adjusted), Eastwest Orchestra and symphobia, Blutonium Boy for kicks, snares and some soundFX, Wavfiles of metal sounds like clangs and elecric noises, cinematic guitars for guitars and some ambience, EWchoirs for the Oooos. Alot of Reverse noises, like glass clangs etc
Effects were FLFlanger, FLPhaser, FLLoveFilter, modeleramppro, hardcore, camelphat, FLDelay, Eq'ed of course not including compressed/limiting etc. It may not sound like a lot, but there's not one thing that plays by itself at any point. I use alot of layering, like the thing you hear that is like a starlite Piano theme, (1:15) well, that uses 3 Nexus all have been altered and then effects added to them. At times I exported things by themselves, added effects on them, and reimported it with the effect. I also use kicks and effects on octaves higher and lower on the scale.
I could go into more detail if you really need me to when I get my machine up and running. But it's mostly experimentation and trial and error, if you have a particular sound or part you're thinking of then just hit me up.
Oh i forgot to add the Sytrus Inferno, right at the end you hear a guitar play, that's what that is.
