I like the concept, not to mention that I'm like.... who are you and what did you do with Lich!
The current mastering is quite annoying to be honest. Everything sounds like as if it was stuffed in the middle. No Right & Left speaker, just the middle and thats just weird :(
That's very strange, it sounded fine on the 3 different pairs of speakers I tested this track on and everything has been individually widened accordingly in the sequencer. I'm grabbing some sleep in a minute but I will double check tomorrow to see if It's the track.
The only downside to this is the bass drum of some sort (a taiko perhaps) that's being repeatedly played in the background and it's massively overpowering everything else in the setup.
I must say, however, that this is an excellent first attempt at cinematic greatness. Don't let any wannabe musical punks tell you otherwise. I'm not a master of cinematic music by any means, but I can at least give you my honest perspective: you're doing an excellent job.
Thank you for responding :)
I'll remember to tone-it-down on the Bass Drums in the future. I kind of went overboard on it just because I love the sound of it but playing around in the sequencer with it at the moment, it does sound better when I make it sound slightly softer and take out some of the quieter hits.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
