Secret Santa - The Echo

Author Comments

I participated in the NG Audio Secret Santa this year, and this is what I made!
I got Echo, and it was a tough one for me.
The song as a whole consists of two different songs since I couldn't decide which one I would submit to the secret santa. Think of it this way: it's a story about the great Echo and his/it's great battles and stuff.
Oh well this is supposed to be cinematic, but original and "blood rushing". I don't know about the blood rushing part, but I tried to go for originality. It's pretty long and will probably feel drawn out, but it has some nice elements in it!
The mixing contains many flaws, I know, but I'm learning :)))

This is made all in Reason 5.

Merry Christmast and a happy new year!

Quite nice. Maybe the production quality could be better - i think you needed better vsts. But overall i think that this is a quite well produced ans structured piece. I liked your pizzicato intro. Also the concept after which you wanted to use the drums and synths was well thought.

I really think you should get a better gear - maybe some collection like komplete or something to get a better quality. That would improve your stuff really a lot. Also i would surrogate the synths with strings. It would have been cool if you could bring in more contrast contrast to the high playing instruments (Maybe a cimbasso or deep synth). Overall some really nice ideas and interesting passages. Keep it up!

Voted 5. Merry Christmas!

Thank you! I am well aware of the quality, and I'm really thinking about trying Ableton Live for real sometime soon. As it is now I'm still stuck with Reason since it's the DAW I know how to use best. So I'll make sure to get some libraries from komplete when I do use AL :)
Still, thank you for your constructive feedback, and listening SC!
Merry Christmas to you too!
