Ascend To Immortality was the song that I first used phasing with among other sound effects.
One of my friends told me the beginning reminded him a bit of the Terminator theme. o.O Can anyone relate to that as well?
Software used to compose the song:
1) FruityLoops Studio - the entire song was composed using this.
2) Sony Vegas Pro 9 - at a certain point in the song there's a slight decrease in volume intended for a bit of suspense, I didn't know how to do that with FL Studio so I just used Sony Vegas to make the effect and transport the few seconds of that clip into FL Studio.
In total Ascend To Immortality took around 7 or 8 hours to fully compose (without breaks, I'll add).
