Yeah, well, if I round up all the time I've spent waiting on other people for things I've needed, even some of the most basic things, just with the stuff I can think up on top of my head, it would amount to 3 years of time being wasted waiting for other peoples' schedules, motivations, budgets and memories to get around to what they agreed to do for me. After a while, you're like, "Man, I am too old for this shit." and quit bothering.
Granted I'm rather on the south side of the bell curve when it comes to social skills and charisma that might suggest "fuck other people entirely" is not an objective wisdom tip when it comes to this stuff, but it's backed with a lot of experience that is definitely regretted.
I'm impressed by how well you spruced up an oft remixed tune. At first it sounds like a fairly conservative trance cover, but the longer I listened, the longer I felt willing to sit through the whole 48 minute video! Continued variation kept me listening, or maybe it was just the synthetic choirs (I'm a sucker for those). My only question is, how long is the loop?
Whether it's a trance or not, I quite like your beat for the classic and beloved Brinstar. The deep and insistent pulse creates the feeling of being encased by tons of earth while traversing endless alien labyrinths. It does get a little mushy, though, as it goes on. The timbre's are pretty nice, but something about them makes it feel like the song is slowly going through a blender. Which is cool, but I think that it needs a little work to be crisper. You've got a good basis for something very interesting here.
Thanks again for the feedback and your time. That panning issue seems emblematic of greater personality flaws, as though my general reticence spills over into everything I do. So, I moved almost everything to the middle and tried to make everything more confident in general. I think it sounds much better now, but I'm not sure where to go next.
