This is a collaboration between me and Stuart. I used a lot of Stu's VSTi's and he used my Korg Oasys and Triton. This tune is the most epic sounding Cinematic song I have ever come up with, and it uses primarily Kontakt 5 for brass, strings and bells, Serum for a bass track, Vanguard for the Synth bass, and Hypnotic Dance for the synth stabs. I used a lot of stuarts knowledge of orchestral and brass composition. We have ended up with a cross between Hans Zimmer and Daft Punk, with a bit of Geoff waine in there also. This was inspired by a remix of "The Grid" by Daft Punk, the remix was done by Alcala. This is a completely original track, and sounds pretty stunning.

Made in Cubase 9. Mastered in Wavelab.


Great work with interesting development

This was one very enjoyable project, those Oasys strings really made the difference I think, it was either that or using HAlion sonic SE, the brass sections sounds very good! This ended up as a forty track project, even with both audio and VST channels it was a bit of an ass to mix down efficiently, and it kept crashing my computer while trying to bounce it down. Your Wavelab touch has really brightened the track up, can't wait until next weekend when we can do this kind of thing again! Even though its but a fart in a hurricane compared to Daft Punks work, this is one pretty epic piece.

That Oasys is one of my favourite instruments I own, and I've had it since new. Its synthesis engine is extremely powerful. I'm currently mixing down part 2 of this which might be available sometime this afternoon, but really depends what my GF wants to do as it is bank weekend. Daft Punk is nearly untouchable, I wouldn't even try to do any of their pieces as you would probably fail miserably. But Epics not word to use with this track, I'll get back to you on what I decide to call it overall! I'm surprised that your computer had problems, as it seemed fine last night.

One of the best music I have heard. Congrats Fireball and Maxxpump :D I love the the way how the music shifts from the intro to the more intense parts :> Good job again and goodluck in your next songs :3

Thankyou, yeah we tried different arrangements to try to get the flow of track good while changing the genre slightly throughout the track. We work together most weekends so expect more to come out of this channel maybe next weekend.

nice !!!
