Greetings, good sir.
This has got to be the most intense moment of 'Thank fuck I didn't leave NG for good' I've experienced. I don't know what has happened to this place, but it seems as if almost everybody has become a highly respectable producer these days..
That said, I really liked your track man. That bass is FUCKING HEAVY. The robot sort of bleeps you throw in are a great addition to keep the momentum flowing and it's just.. rawr. Great effectwork and nice transitional work aswell.
I suppose the only thing I can think of is that maybe it would've done the track more justice to have the bridge around 1:35 have more shit going on, to really give that 'this is dark and you know it' feel, if that makes sense. ;)
Downloading this one. It'd be awesome if you could give me a hint or two on how you made that reese.. ;p Either way, CHUNE.

Thank you, great review!
About the reese, I based it on a pretty basic deep sawy bass preset I made with my Virus C, some filter modulation applied with the Virus's own filters, Virus's own distortion, EQ, etc. The external effects which I added afterwards give it that crunchy warm sound; First I divided it into 2 mixer channels, one for bass <210Hz and the other for the mid's and high's. For the first channel (bass) I just added 1 multiband distortion unit (D16 Devastor) and tweaked it 'till I liked it and after that applied one more EQ to clean it up abit. The second channel is slightly more complex, EQ (Cut <210Hz and Boost mids around 500-1000Hz), Distortion unit (D16 Redoptor), Multiband Distortion unit (D16 Devastor), Distortion/Filter/Whatever unit (Camelaudio Camelphat3) and final EQ to clean it up. The "sweeping" effect in the reese bass comes partly from the Virus's own filters but mostly from Camelphat3's Notch filter with High Q which I then modulated with an automation clip.
That's pretty much it! Thanks again for an awesome review, it's rare @ newgrounds! :)
this is insane. bravo on this dude
