A cinematic track. I was inspired by listening to Hans Zimmer's film music, in particular from the films Inception and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Logic Pro X, Alchemy, EXS24.

[EDIT]: I remastered this and re-uploaded on Feb. 14, 2018. This was the first track I've ever really attempted to master, and the first master wasn't very good. So now I think there is more clarity and better sound with this one.

Thank you! I'm really into cinematic music right now. :)

That piano is magic! I must say it did give me a bit of a sci-fi feel! but I must say (in just my opinion) I don't really agree with the sound that comes in around 1:26 (its off in in the background ) but other than that I think its its a solid track. It reminds me whenever optimus prime is giving his monologues at the end of the movies.


FateModified responds:

Thanks! I'm not sure what sound you are referring to, maybe the cymbal hits? There is also a harp that starts playing arpeggios at that point in the song. Oh well, thanks for listening and for the review! :)

Beautiful and emotional piece

FateModified responds:


love that melody. Nice use of reverse notes. If there is anything I could suggest working on it would be,
the bitrate sounds a bit low and the track flows well but feels perhaps a little too predictable in sections, but mostly i'd say very well done, look at the render settings to fix the bitrate, or the "bounce" settings before export.

FateModified responds:

Thanks! I "bounced" the project in Logic at 16-bit and 44.1 kHz into an aiff file, and then converted it to mp3 in Audacity. But after your comment, I went ahead and reimported the pre-mastered track at 24-bit and 192 kHz, remastered it, and bounced it at 24-bit and 48 kHz directly to an mp3 from Logic. I uploaded the new version, but to me it sounds about the same. I don't have enough mixing and mastering experience yet to notice subtle differences, I suppose.

Thanks for the review! :)
