So, this was something I didn't really plan out ahead of time. The entire thing started when I discovered NitroTracker, a little piece of homebrew that runs on the DS. As soon as I found it, I thought "Yes! Music making on the go!" And so I recorded a few samples, threw them on, and, well, this was the result.

It's a song that's in mono far more than it is stereo, and it's a little flat, but that doesn't mean that it isn't well composed, especially for something made on a handheld device. I'm very happy with the result, save for a few odd notes towards the end of the final climax.

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. :)

Note: I apologize for the gap of silence at the end. Wasn't quite sure how to get rid of that.


Its great

Gonna be honest it sounds like a cross between trance and something else... like dub-step or techno or something - can't quite put my finger on it. As I listen to this I get a sense I might here it in a flash portal in the future.
I like it though - it gives a sense of twilight but sustains an epic and gradually growing tension. still... I feel like something's missing...

PS: I hate it when recordings disagree with you too... I sometimes suffer similar problems.

TheClockStruckOne responds:

I know what you mean by the fact that 'something's missing.' It might just be the way it was made. Trackers tend to give a bit of a flatter feel to music, and this is one of those songs that needs a bit of a heavy, yet floaty atmosphere to it. Still, you gotta make due with the medium.

Thanks for the input though. Was my first time really working with trackers, so I'll try and improve with them in the future. :)
