Synchro Spectre - A Midnight Dream (Sky Spirit)

Yay! I figured out how to do these drums. This song wasn't mastered that well (I'm kinda new to this genre), so get your headphones or speakers, bump up the volume and lower the bass, if you want to, for the full enjoyment ;)

The first Synchro Spectre release. This is a remake of my old Drum and Bass song: A Mid-Night Dream. I took the beep noise and added it into a Sci-Fi, Dream, New Age environment. The real name of the Genre would be Instrumental or New Age but Newgrounds doesn't have it so oh well.

This was the song I always played in my head since I was 13. I've always wanted to do drums like these but I never knew how. I don't even know what it was called. I couldn't simply "Google" how to do a certain drum pattern. But I managed, so here it is. Turns out it was just a freaking hip-hop beat with some phaser snares and a wicked crazy flanged, phased...something hats. And yes all the string parts are different for each part. If you listen closely, the melodies in the orchestral section are different in various parts of the song. I accidentally came up with that badass piano part (3:30) when I accidentally pasted the electronic bass an octave too low but it created a nice clearance for any mid-ranged sound to play in. So I added in a Piano part to play along with it and it went nicely. The inspiration for that alien noise that plays during the last half of the main part of the song came from a song called Track 02 (beautiful name) of Star Defender 3, except I had the melody go my way.

This is amazing. I need to replace most of the game music tracks in a certain MMO I play with this. I can't properly convey how good I think this song is.

Thanks man, It does sound like it would be in a video game soundtrack cx

I always have songs in my head. I've only managed to get 10% of them out, and I'm always constructing new ones in my head. I'm a music factory. Most of the tunes in my head are way better sounding than when I play them, does this happen to you?

OH GOSH. As I was typing this, I decided I love this song. WOW. Very melodic. WOW. Every time I type a sentence, I get hit by another wave of pure vibrant bliss! You are so talented. I'm following you based on this song ALONE. Beautiful. One of the best songs I've ever listened to. By far.

HAHA, yea, I do have those moments I have songs in my head but I could never get it right. But this is THE song that I've had stuck, since childhood, but it was the drums I could never get past.

And thank you so much, I'm glad that just this song was good. I love these kind of songs cx, thanks for the review man c;
