Hey guys, I am back with a completely different song. It's a rather long but energetic (to my standards) Drum & Bass song. I worked on this for about 60 work hours. I must say that it really was worth all the effort. Now, I am not showing off, but I am really proud to present you my best Drum n' Bass song to date.

Note: Listen to this only with headphones, a good car installation, or computer subwoofers, because I have added a powerful sub bass for more effect.

One of my friends 'ItsD2123 (TITANIUM3000 on Newgrounds)' is allowed to use this song in a game project of him. Best of luck with your game, D. ;D

JUL 07 Update: I reworked some of the sounds and the bass intensity went down a bit because otherwise it would cause a strong rumble sound that distorts the notes and melodies playing at some parts, so that's why. In my opinion, now it should sound better.

One of the best sounds of Blighter. Love it!

I think you really nailed the "outer space" feeling. Some parts feel like exploration, while others, like the more active parts, make me think of space combat. As far as Drum & Bass goes, it's not super energetic but I think that plays out in your favor because the synth pads in particular give enough space within the song (no pun intended) to both give a sense of scale and reflect exploration and wonder. The percussion also gives a sense of action. I think of a Star-Trek-like battle scene near a pulsar when I hear this.

Not sure if that's exactly what you were going for so I'll give you benefit of the doubt, but the sound of the song really matches the concept and title. Very nice work.

I'm curious, what were you going for?

BlighterProductions responds:

I tried a little bit stepping out of my comfort zone this time (since most of my recent music was very ambient) and I kind of started to miss the energy in my music. Trying out of the box first, but soon figuring out things that befitted really well with the song (like the alternative melodies playing through each other, which I believe to have resulted in my best work) and that manifested over time into what we will now know today as “Pulsar”.

I’m very satisfied with the results overall, and trust me, I am not easily satisfied with something. Thanks for the review. 😉

Also, I’ll make a music video for YouTube very soon.

Epic am listening with my HiFi headphones

BlighterProductions responds:

Hope you enjoyed listening like that. ;D

What a masterpiece! I hope this song alone gets very famous!

I like the melody playing a lot, and i can sense that there was lots of effort put into this.

It's still not as good as Traction Beast in my opinion.

BlighterProductions responds:

Thank you man. That really makes me feel good!
