Attack on Titan [2014 Remake]

I released this remake last year in 2014 on my Soundcloud, but I'm uploading it here now as I discovered Newsgrounds only recently lol.

This is a remake of the Attack on Titan anime song "Counter Attack on Mankind", originally composed by Hiroyuki Sawano (澤野 弘之). I did not compose it note to note, but it has pretty much the same essence captured (I hope). Also I admit, it is a bit more "MIDI-ized" than the realistic orchestra Mr Sawano used.. lol.

Even though I'm inspired by many composers and artists, it was somehow this guy (Hiroyuki Sawano) who was THE guy who ultimately moved my lazy ass to start composing seriously after years of fooling around.

Anyway, I remember this project took me absolutely AGES to remake mainly because of serious RAM and CPU issues. I eventually had to render the final song in frickin' safe mode just to prevent my computer from crashing. Oh yeah, that distorted guitar you're hearing? Thats a MIDI guitar hooked up with some free amps mainly FA3 and TSE 808. Hence please kindly forgive me for the rather unrealistic playing of the muted guitar parts. lol

Also, I only just used the Kontakt 4 factory sample library to compose this song. As you can probably hear, some of the legato and staccato notes have hopelessly slow attack times..

But ALAS...the project file for this doesn't exist anymore because my computer decided to take a dump shortly after I released the song. Even my backups failed back then...

I now religiously keep 3 backups. A backup for each backup, and a backup for each backup's backup. One can never have too many backups. Or can they? O_o
