Made with Reason 6. Just something I made to pass the time, while I'm in some kind of "writer's block". Only used the ID8 and some EQing. Scream6 as well as a "mid pass filter" helped achieve the retro feel. Was thinking of sticking this in the jazz section, but then saw a misc. section. Still got the unfiltered, clean version if anyone's interested in better quality.

Hope You Enjoy

shieldurhope responds:

Thanks, really appreciate it.

Simply put, this is amazing.

shieldurhope responds:

Thanks! and thanks for the reveiw!

I've got to agree with TheoryGuy on this one, the effects pretty much make the piece! I'm guessing both 'jazz' as well as 'miscellaneous' would be fine to describe the genre.

What struck me most about this particular piece, is that underneath its 'basic' appearance there's quite a bit of complexity in terms of melodic and harmonic progression. All in all I really like the piece, although the ending was a bit abrupt. It's fast, it's catchy, and I think it would work really well for short movies.

There's not much I can say about the mastering / mixing, other than that it sounds fine the way it does now. That said, I don't think one can do much harm in these areas when only one instrument is being used.

All in all, a job wel done. Keep up the good work!

shieldurhope responds:

I agree with you.
I did think about a short movie when making this. Something like a villain with long, pointed eyebrows and nose tying a damsel in distress to a railway. That idea I originally used to make another song: "The Train Tracks", but here I thought I should stick to the original flavour.
Thanks for the review, hoping to do more stuff like this.

The retro filter really "makes" this piece, in my opinion. There's something very old-school silent-film about it and I dig that a lot. Great work!

shieldurhope responds:

Thanks. Mastering tracks usually takes me a lot of time only to get poor results. Who knew just lobbing-off the top and bottom makes such a positive difference. Thanks for the review.


shieldurhope responds:

dig-ital audio workstation?

Lol. thanks man
