S1LENT GHO5T - Two (Official Instrumental) [Bi Remastered]

Share

Author Comments

The official remaster of Bi and the instrumentals for it's new name, Two.


The listened to the original composition again and realized how unbalanced and dirty it was, so I re did it again in FL Studio.


It took a long time to do it all over again with over almost 21 hours of work, 81 plugins, 111 channels, 45 tracks, 49 playlist tracks, 881 playlist clips, and 12963 notes.


I spent a lot of time designing and creating my sounds, including my drums.


Unlike the original composition, I raised it by 3 semitones because the original was too low for my vocalist to sing.


The song still has the same magic the original one carried.


I wouldn't have released this but I got another invite to NGUAC, and I figured if I want to try out again, do it with my best song.


Two will be my last official song here on newgrounds, it's time for me to fly away and pursue bigger things.


If I make it through the competition, then you'll see more.


Thanks for everything!

Never heard the original Bi, but this key sounds like where it wanted to sit all along.

Some comments. The mix as a whole is pretty sub heavy on the kick -- can probably afford to bring it down about .2 to .3 dB and have the rest of the track stand out more from behind it. Sounds like you could also benefit from cutting some reverb and cleaning out the sub 250 hz on any sends, just to keep from sounding bogged down. But this isn't a huge issue.

There are some percussion slapbacks on your final drop that occasionally come to the fore in a very noticeable way, and not necessarily as something the casual listener would intuitively understand as a transition.

Overall the song is good, but I end up feeling something is missing, something like the vocalist you may have mentioned. There's not really a ton of moving lead material to carry us through sections. But overall, good work. The piece is cohesive and flows without having to be forced.

Thanks for coming out to NGUAC!

To completely transparent, I wasn't able to rerender the new version since I wasn't back in my original set up, so I tried to send the most recent one I had on my phone. In the updated one I did more EQ work to cut out unnecessary frequencies while keeping the mix stable and fixed the issues with the drums so that they don't overpower or collide to keep the synths from delivering their power.

Thanks for the feedback and it was still worth a shot. My vocalist is delivering the vocals soon so once I mix them in, emotions will be felt. The vocalist is also a fantastic artist, we're going to work on making something special with the song altogether.

Lots of concepts and planning. Once it's complete I'll probably post it on here and promote it across as many platforms as possible.

Fun Fact: The original key was 3 semi-tones lower, but I raised it so my vocalist could sing. Though, I think the raise is what perfected the sound.

The song, in the end, will also be a motivator since that's what I felt when I was producing it.

So even if I may not make it through, I still have something I'm really proud of ^^!

Again, thanks for the feedback, have a good day :)!
