UPDATE 07/28/2020: Changed the genre of the song from World to Ambient according to fans.

Hi, I'm here again and haven't been missing anywhere, just haven't had the time or the mood to write anything lately, but I started doing this thing the other day and finished today, a big mix of pads of various plugins: Sytrus, Nexus and Massive. Yes, it was the first time I used the Massive plugin in this song, it was quite difficult to set up, but I was able to find a great preset and play with it! Enjoy it!

P.S. What kind of genre is this? Can be again the Techno?!

Thank you for your appreciation, especially on my birthday! :)

Its interesting track - IDK why "Dark Arctic " , but track a really ... hmm ... i not have idea -simple good and i like this :)
This is techno ? Maaaaaybe .... :)

C211 responds:

I named it "Dark Arctic" because of the preset in the Massive plugin, which was called "Arctic Sunset", but since I only used low octaves in the melodies, so I called it "Dark" :)

And Yes, it's definitely not techno, since there's nothing heavy in this track, it's something more upbeat and relaxed...


I love this. Definitely not techno. Its more of a dark ambient kind of feel, but with some punch to it. In my opinion. But, I digress, this is some fine work ya have here and I will download it when I have a solid internet connection. Keep up the good work!



C211 responds:

Thank you for your assessment! I am glad that many people download my songs :)

First time seeing and hearing your work, and boy, you seem to have better knowlodge of music than i do, despite that we are both 15 and musicians.

Despite im not really an electronic lover, I really like the intro. It has a really dark vibe and interesting vibe, but unfortunatly the melody is quite repetative on the other parts of the song.

But definitly you got an interesting and unique style there. Keep it up!

C211 responds:

Wow, thanks for the long review!
Yes, I have this taste, so there may be some flaws in the middle, but there's not much I can do about it. The new Massive plugin gave me the push to do this thing. At the age of 15, I'm not bad at composing anything, but I'm not that strong. to finish this quickly, it takes me about 2-3 weeks or more to properly replenish my fantasy reserves.
