This is another track for Aaron Webber for use in his independent project based off of Skies Of Arcadia. This one is a lot slower, and a lot more dramatic. It's supposed to be for cutscenes, or for very dramatic moments.

I set it up so that every round gets more and more intense, as if you're heading closer towards some sort of goal. I used a lot of orchestral instruments, as well as a few of my own created synths. I wanted something that sounded sorta futuristic in the background. I think I nailed it, that instrument from the beginning was EXACTLY what I was looking for.

I really wanted to avoid using snares as much as possible. So instead, I used all sorts of percussive instruments. I also played around with the pan shifting on them to even out some of the cluster. I used a LOT of percussion. It is different for me, but I like it. The hardest part of the whole song was adding effects and adjusting volumes. I spent some extra time during the editing process to make sure everything was nice and smooth, not to loud, not too soft, every part right where it needs to be. I did a lot of experimenting with MIDI effects to make sure I could find the best sound possible. I learned the real importance of "phasing" and how to use it in the right spot.

I gave it my all! I hope you all like it! All honesty is greatly appreciated. Feel free to vote, review, and share alike, and as always, download is free! Thank you all so much!

Awesome. I like how it got more dramatic as it progressed. Well done.

Thank you! That's exactly what i wanted

I absolutely love this. This is one of those songs which I wouldn't personally listen to, but its just so good it deserves a favourite. It's simple, but it sounds great. I love the melody of that arp that repeats a lot of the song. Despite the bassline changing very little I find the other changes in instruments used and panning keep me interested. Great work.

PaulyBFromDa303 responds:

That means a lot. I truly appreciate that. I tried really hard to keep the panning just as I wanted it and not all over the place. I probably could have added a little more to the bassline. You're definitely not the first person to say this either, and listening back on it I can see why. Diversity is something I will definitely keep an eye on in the future. Thank you so much for the honest review

This is really good with the tension and being dramatic, but i suggest you change the bass a little bit as it basically repeats itself in the whole song.

PaulyBFromDa303 responds:

A good note indeed, and I thank you for the review. I'll definitely keep an eye on sequence diversity In the future.
