I'll be recording this track with live players next month for my school project! Stick around to hear that!

*I used Logic Pro X, EWQL string/brass, Kontakt 5, and a lot of Tea to make this song!

**I Re-mastered the track and reduced some of the bass frequencies around 100Hz**


Nice I really like the intro, that first trumpet though makes me think its going to do the Snake Eater theme because of the interval, I really like the intro I keep listen to that over ad over, my ear want's some horn stabs in there though. Ooooh on my second listen, over all the t whole thing really makes me think of some of the the best songs from MGS:3. Which is a very good thing, but you turned it metal. It's really cool UGHH AND THAT ENDING YOU DID THAT ON PURPOSE!!!!! lmaoooo I hate when I want a note to play! Great work man. But you got the snake eater theme stuck in my head now.

HI! I saw your request in the forums and thought I'd give reviewing this a shot.

So you wanted feedback on your mix with emphasis on the bass? Personally, I think the mix is pretty good, except that i feel the drums could be brought out a bit. Also, the mix feels a bit cluttered in the low mids region, especially in parts such as 0:40-1:00.

Bass-wise, I feel the bass is a bit louder than normal. Now, I have bass-boosting earphones and enjoy a good amount of bass, but it does feel like it overpowers the low mids a bit here. Still, the mix was great, as I could hear most of your instruments clearly. Your stereo imaging was also done well, although I would have preferred a bit more in the right side in places like 0:17-0:25.

Great work! I enjoyed it quite a lot. Hope you have fun recording it and good luck on your project!
