<TeK> 10 Mins to Midnight Demo

Download this loop!

Author Comments

I was bored, so I spent 20 minutes making this remix demo of Ten Minutes to Midnight by Jer Martin. The only thing in this is the one major buildup, which isn't even quite done. No samples from the original were used. Basically I did this to test out a new kick drum I made.

I'll probably make a full remix later, but for now enjoy this uplifting trance tune.

Edit: changed a bunch of stuff; I'm not sure if it sounds better or not...




awsome loop im a big fan of your works when you make the full version pm me the link

0:00-Love the depth of the synth here, very atmospheric, and you can sense it's building into something due to the subtle increase in volume, allowing you to stretch this introduction for the length of time you do without it getting boring.
0:30-Cool piano melody, though it was perhaps a little louder than it needed to be.
0:55-Really nice bassy boom on the kick there; the other drums also sound cool, but I think
I definitely wouldn't have minded hearing the bass drum more than once, because it added a lot of atmosphere for the lower frequencies which aren't really catered for by most of the synths
1:22-Nice transition into the lead synth; the synth itself could have been picked out a little more, but it works as it is, especially with the piano entry at 1:51, but it works well as an effective support of the pad synths that have been going through the whole thing; if one thing's definitely important with a fixed chord progression, it's keeping up variety, which you do well.

Would definitely be interested to hear what a full remix would sound like, especially if this was just 20 minutes of work.

Review in progress

-After reading the author comments I thought this would be a nasty piece of junk. It's not often that something that is put together in under an hour isn't something that makes you want to leave the page and say what were they thinking. But to my suprise it's pretty good for just a sample. Tons of buildup which makes the slow intro a really good thing. I liked how it's structured in the buildup though. It had a nice little plateau in the middle for instrumental work. It allowed me to relax and just listen to the nice beats for a while without it changing so often. I'd like to hear the finished version of this whenever you get around to it though.

Thanks for the review! I'm glad you liked how I structured the buildup, I wasn't sure if it was the right way to go.

Very Nice .

It's bliss. You make the midnight hours surreal with this composition. It's brilliant. I can already imagine the twilight's horizon beckoning me to become one with it's eternal whispers. A great song to ride on the night roads thinking of your reflections ; past ; all the people you met ; the paths of your life, while staring out watching the street lights flicker by like fireflies. I don't know whats more blinding, this song, or the white stripes in the middle of the road. You decide. I choose the song. I am also downloading this amazing song. It's not perfect, but at the same time it's perfect .

everything is great! the build was excellent.... loved the panning.... the drums are nice.... blah blah... u already know you're great!
one thing i would i recommend was is adding another kick around 0:54... that little... idk what you would call it... in a nutshell it was just a little weird rhythmically... but thats a minor complaint! keep up the great stuff and keep in touch!
