If this were the Main Menu song in a game, I'd never bother even playing the game. :D
Great work as always, ridiculous attention to detail, and it shows!
Dude if this were the main menu theme, I'd totally be rocking the rest of the soundtrack. It might be worth it. <3
Bounce down those tracks and keep going. I believe in you bro.
It's pretty great so far, I just feel like it's a little too sparse in between the bits that have interest (the synth in the first half and the "dubstep" (lol) in the second half) - the ambient sections don't hold my interest as much as everything else does. That would be my biggest complaint. My other problem is that the "dubstep" section seems a little too sparse. It's quite hard to explain why this is, but it feels weirdly empty (even though it's exploding with crazy noise). I think that with more things going on (little melodic flits and pads to fill out space perhaps) it would come together better.
The synth solo in the beginning sounds great to me. If you pressed me I'd say that the melody is a touch more undirected than I would prefer. Like 2:35 really sounds on the verge of something, but is slightly off in terms of rhythm I think. I think if you fiddled with the rhythm it could be better. I like the blues notes.
That synth lead is a little too quiet but other than that the mix is perfect in my eyes. Nice thumpy kicks and heavy base. :)
The sound design (or should I say effect design) is amazing. I don't even know what's going on in the drops but it sounds amazing. The way it takes the same instrument but brings to the front different frequencies of that instrument is great.
On the fence between 8 and 9 but 8 is to low for such sexy sound design so 9 it is!
P.S. Fadeout ending is best ending so no points docked. :3
(Actually that's not true... it does sound pretty incomplete - probably because it is :p I wonder if this is how my songs sound with a fadeout ending. O_O)
Spare is right, I guess. Different things we enjoy though, since I like more ambient bits. :P
The dubsteppy bit is kinda empty, though I'm guessing you mean more after 4:13. If that is where you meant, then I'd entirely agree - that's about where I ran out of ideas. If you want more things going on before that, I'm going to have to get you to try and mix that monster yourself, because it was a nightmare already.
Melodies and stuff weren't really my focus at all, I was almost entirely focused on the sound design and atmosphere.
Sound design stuff you're gonna hate me for, because it's basically 3xosc plus some effects on it like a bitcrusher and waveshaping. :D Oh also some other samples of cardboard I had lying around, I could get those to you - shoot me a message on Skype or something.
>I wonder if this is how my songs sound with a fadeout ending.
Yes. It is if there's no conclusion. It also sounds like that for all those techno songs that just end on a pattern that's meant to loop. Do you see why I dislike fadeout endings now ;_;
Good job and great athmosphere. Dont know if i would put this under experimental. Parts of it seem to sound more videogame-music style. Sometimes i find the bass is a llttle bit repetitive. The sequence beginning at 3:38 is cool!
Hey there. The bass is a bit repetitive, I suppose - particularly toward the beginning. There is a repeated ostinato through that section, so there's that.
Sequence over there was the dubby bit. There's some cool stuff you can do with normal oscillators and waveshaping!
You have such a beautiful way of composing music. Everything is always so spot on. Your attention to detail continuously astounds me! Beautiful.
Thanks, Jordi. ^_^
