Initial note: sorry for the half-arsed title, I couldn't fit in the whole word 'remastered' so I had to improvise. =P

This is the first song I've composed that have lyrics in, and as always this was a spare-of-the-moment piece. =)
The initial version of Until The Day We Die had a tonne of clipping and distortion issues and at the time I didn't know how to properly fix it. A massive thanks goes to a guy called "Copy-23" over on Newgrounds for giving excellent feedback which enabled me to remaster this song! Much appreciated mate.

Just as before, I don't know what genre this song falls under so I'm listing it in the closest category that I think it fits into, even if it doesn't fit very well.

Thanks for listening. And thanks for downloading if you have. =)

Software used to make the song:
1) FruityLoops Studio 10 - the entire song was made using it.
2) Audacity - all voice audio was recorded using this.
3) MorphVOX Pro - the 'phone conversation' aspect was actually my own voice but morphed twice; once into a female voice and then again for the 'phone line' sound.
4) Sony Vegas Platinum 10 - A few parts of a the lyrics required major sound balancing, this was used to ensure that quality.

'Until The Day We Die' took 8 hours 55 minutes to compose from beginning to end. Remastering it took 47 minutes to complete.

Hey!! I found your song on youtube! Thanks for the mention btw!
Man ... WOW such an improvement. I can hear the clarity of the notes and timbres. It's also all leveled right. Mastering compressors pretty quickly. If you want some more tips;
The bass I can hear was the fruity loops bass. Its very vanilla as it stands. Look at getting a few effects VST plugins. (All the effects and plugins etc are usually 'VST').
So search some good free 'VST' websites and download what you can. There is two types, VSTi is the instruments, (bass, Guitars, Pianos etc) and the 'VST' is usually effects (put them into the mixer tracks).
So for a string instrument like the Bass, get a 'Cabinet, Heads, EQ, Distortions etc.' That will give you a lot more play room with the final sound making it sound richer and realistic.
Also try experimenting with compression. Use a light compression on the master but on the tracks use different types of compressors.
Keep me posted on your updates!!

Thanks for the advice mate, I'll definitely have a look into VST/VSTi plugins since I'd love to try my hand at a synth rock track some time.
As for my songs going up on YouTube I have a habit of being a bit lazy when it comes to actually putting them on there lol. It's so much easier and quicker to upload a new song to SoundCloud and Newgrounds than it is to render a whole new video to go on YouTube, so if you or anyone else would like to keep up to date with my music it'd be a better bet to follow my SounCloud and/or Newgrounds profiles.
Again, thanks for all your excellent feedback and advice Copy-23, it's all very much appreciated. =D


Loved it! Gave it four stars because I would liked to have seen it longer, but other than that absolutely loved it, and I don't usually like songs with lyrics!


Syrez responds:

Thanks! This was my first attempt at putting lyrics into a song and it took almost 9 hours to compose so I didn't want to go overkill lol. I have quite a few ideas for songs, both lyrical and instrumental so within the next couple months I hope to make some of those ideas turn into reality. I'm on holiday at the moment so naturally I'm going crazy without my PC lol.
