This is the discussion thread for the Aura Collab meant for people with Evil Auras. Seriously, Evil people: get to work, the other groups have already started. (Not meaning to pressure you, of course). I'll post you the links to other discussion threads, too, just so you can get some ideas a bit faster. Good luck!

Bump, for the sake of sanity. C'mon, people. I know there's a bunch of you Evil muthas lurking around and hesitating to join in and beat the shit out of Music's name. The Collab can't work without ALL of the Aura groups, and you guys are no exception.

alright guys what are we looking for here? I can do orchestral and amuse myself with trance/techno. What kind of mood? Evil? yes, but how so? Do we go for epic or subtle. Does anyone want to play off of Halloween coming up?

What do we want to do?

i hope we can add some manical screaming into it, like something along the lines of Cradle of Filth mwahaha, or maybe something musically similar to Sigh

That's pretty sweet right there. Do you have any way to "clean" up the distortion or maybe make it a bit tighter at the beginning. Either way it's sick. Guitar playing is outstanding. I think some high register strings would kick ASS.

Would you mind zipping up the separate tracks as .wav files? I would love to mess around with this and add something. I love the feeling you've got going. Where did you want to take this and would you want to mix genres or stay the same for the whole song?

Also, what key is this in and what's the bpm? Do you think a heavy piano could fit in there? Maybe we could make the intro acoustic and then go into the sick riffs.

Just some thoughts. Nice job!

~SinJim

PS - Joel what do you think about it? What would you have in mind to add?

I also started on something last night. I dunno if you guys would wanna go this way, but I think a crazy guitar part in there would do some justice. Also the vocals can be dropped if needed. Meh, let me know what you guys think, it's in Dm, 123 bpm.

You want me to bounce all the tracks to .wav so you can mix them?

Yes, if it wouldn't be too much trouble.

I can add guitar too if that's what ya want. I was thinking something very glitchy/distorted for the breakdown, then back into a darker, harder version of what you already made. It looks like it's just us 3 if anything. No evil Rep to be seen!

Jeebus - 82MB, just to warn you. I think to vocal sample is empty because you have to set it to no output for the vocoder in logic to work. If you get the vocals don't listen to them because it exemplifies just how terrible a singer I am. Hurray for electronics!

Here For Long.zip

Gimme that badass breakdown and slap a sweet guitar on there. These files may be pre-panned but we can always work that out later with whoever wants to mix it. Keep me posted on what you get. I'm excited to see how this turns out. Let me know if you need anything else, sorry it took so long to upload.

I'm assuming you're talking Hardcore techno? If that's so then it could definitely work. I'll say that I'll have a hard time because I generally compose at a slower tempo - be it techno, classical, or trance. But I'm open to anything.

What ideas do you have?

We need to get organized... Otherwise we'll end up making the same stuff, and can't use it all... So who's gonna do what?

That sounds good. Krav, if you wanna add on you check the zip fileI uploaded for Joel to get the feel. If we can meld everything in together it should sound pretty sweet. I can do the outro if needed, we just need to finish most of the song before we can construct a fitting outro.

Hmm, I dunno. I have logic, and I'm okay at mixing, not the best but I could give it a shot. What programs are you guys (or maybe just you since there's a lack of enthusiasm here...) and how comfortable are you with mixing?

I'm very comfortable mixing. For sequencing, I use Reason 4.0, and for mixing and some of the VSTi instruments, I use Cubase 4. I also have a UAD-1 card with some mastering plugs, as well as some other really cool ones. I think I could make it sound good. I think its just you and me buddy... I'm guessing you use FL to sequence... Check your PM, you'll have my s/n so we can communicate better, to catch up to everybody!

Yeah, the mix hit +6dB for me, so I had to turn it down. I think it sounds much clearer, and I'm going to try to use some of your samples to transition into mine... I still need to think about the breakdown, I want it to sound positively evil!

I'd like to get in on this as well, I'm really good with outtros :) and I have a tendency to use heavy ass saws in my music, which blends great with distorted guitars. All I've got is FL Studio with a few VST's though, so you probably dont want me to do any mixing. I do have ProteusX though, some bad ass sounds with that, and I have a few freeware VST's designed to put out sounds like the NES MIDI driver, which have some serious potential when they're wet with effects.

Gotta be evil aura to participate, as per rules of the collab. Here's what me and Joel came up with tonight:

130-150bpm
harmonic minor - room for key changes tho
Strings
Electronic drums
Snare - hypercompressed and remixed in with original sample
4-on-the-floor kick
Stereo panned Hi-hats
Square bass (with minor sine to add some oomph to the song)
Intro at double time (I think that's the right terminology - basically if the tempo is 150 bpm the intro feels like its' 75bpm)

Probably going to throw some trills in there with the strings

Anyways that's what we're going with so far, list some suggestions if you've got them; we need it to sound evil.
