We Ride At Dawn


Author Comments

It has been many years since I have posted on Newgrounds, but after seeing a friend of mine on twitter use it regularly for their music, I decided to give it another go for my music content.

Since my earlier creations many years ago, I have expanded my music composition abilities from being a generic EDM producer, to producing in as many genres as I can, including composing music for games and video.

Since those earlier years I have gotten faster at the hobby, and this particular piece I composed and created the first mix between 9.45PM and 10.35PM last night, before I went to bed, so I spent less than 1 hour on the version you are hearing now.

For this piece I used Spitfire Labs and Originals for the Orchestra, Reason Rack’s Humana Choir, and the piece was composed in FL Studio.

Here is an image of the project file:

The progression in here, especially when the choirs kick in in full force, is sublime.
It also does sound a tiny little bit like A Fleeting Dream (from Final Fantasy X), albeit if you did a much more sombre iteration using a leitmotif from there.

Work on giving your track more air in general and increase that reverb tail in the end; it does feel a little bit stifled. Otherwise, your instrumentation is solid, your vocal harmonies are on point.

Fatal-Exit responds:

Thank you for your thoughts Troisnyx, means a lot, I'm gonna work on the mix a little more before I make the itch.io download available.

I always feel a bit conflicted about the ends of tracks. Either I feel they end way too abruptly: that might be the case with this, or else they have huge tails that result in 10s of seconds of almost silence, it's hard to balance it sometimes.
