Chill to the core.
I can't get over how much I love this track. SUPERB job on everything. The pitched high hats following the flow of the bass were a nice touch. The rotating cog sound was also awesome, hauntingly slide-like melodies that floated in and out so perfectly. Your mixing has gotten crazy good over the years, serious props Skye. It was built so well!
Hey, frootza! Awesome to see your review here!
The pitched high hats were a royal pain in the ass. There are actually some half-time pitch edits in the fine pitch parameter to make them match half-steps in the bass (because you know, imprecise pitches of the hats).
The "rotating cog sound" that you're talking about, is probably the pitched snare drums going around in the high pitches, I think. That was fun to do. :D
The melodies were probably the hardest to do. Melodies in alternative time sigs are HARD.
Mixing... Also a bit of a pain in this tbh, but I really appreciate the compliment there! I've worked hard and I want to do it as my actual primary job, so that's great to hear. :)
Good luck in your round!
get fucked! this is really fantastic. rockin that 7/4 so hard
<3 7/4 dnb for the win, friend
Dude, this is awesome. The extra time with the panning really paid off. Really cool melodies, and I also enjoy the smooth glass pads that carry through the piece. Kinda gives it a stealth game feeling. I feel bad for whoever's up against you!
That panning took so goddamn long. ;_; I hope the judges appreciate that.
The smooth glass pads are *literally* nothing but FX-covered sine waves. Like, nothing in this isn't basic waveforms with editing or one of the three drum samples I used.
I'm up against the also excellent EliteFerrex, whose piece can be heard here: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/642213
I feel fairly confident in this piece, but we'll see how things go!
Hey dude, this is quite a piece of work you've put together. Excellent, slick use of automation gives it a nice edgy feel. It sounds really high tech and you've done it seemlessly, great sound that takes quite a bit of effort! I'm jealous of you for having Omnisphere ;). It reminds me a little bit of the music for The Binding of Isaac and Super Meat Boy, just in a more futuristic setting.
5stars from me, I didn't really expect any less to be honest but you've been progressing quite a bit for a long time.
Keep it up.
Interesting thing, there's actually barely any automation, almost *all* of this is automatic effects or raw note parameters.
Omnisphere is sweet. If you can, you should totally save for Omnisphere 2. It's worth it. Trust me. :D
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
