    And they have 3 80's. Each.

  1. You seem to do good vocalization. Is there a possibility that you could record vocals for Seven Rings In Hand for a remix that I made of the song? I would greatly appreciate that so much. If you need to hear the song too then just contact me about it. Thanks a lot!

  2. Oh my... I didn't think this was ever going to see the light of day. Well, in my defense, 2 years ago it seemed like a good idea. ...just kidding it was a bad idea then too haha Congratulations on finally getting the album released, though! It's been a long, crazy journey, hasn't it
  3. Just adding my $0.02 here, though zircon and dannthr have covered the point pretty comprehensively. There's a recent 'In the Studio' session with Noisia where he explains his primary workflow, it's a fascinating watch and really makes you appreciate the lengths he will go to for a sound. You have to buy it from Futuremusic, but I would 100% recommend it: Anyway, I think you'll find most of these bass heavy guys will do this in some way - you split the bass up into a sub and a mid channel. The mid channel is where you'll do all the fancy tricks, the sub channel is for power and lo end. That noisia bass is definitely based off of some of the more exotic oscs in massive, and probably layered with a saw and some of the mod fx along with some unison detune/widening. To get that really 'convoluted' sounding reese you need to modulate a ton of internal frequencies, either with a combination of band pass/reject filters or an EQ mod. Then, there is a final, sync'd filter that gives it the 1/8th note wubs. This can all be done in massive, or, more typically, through several passes. ie: one wav is rendered out of the initial bass, then that is processed through filters and rendered again, etc, etc. Then you can layer the separate waves together to get even stranger frequency cancellations... and then match the sub layer up to the end result of all this for a huge, clean sound. Yes, it is a major pain
  4. Hi, just wanted to give you a shoutout and that your song from Kirby Super Star - Ska Buffet (All You Can Eat: Clean Version) was used in a MAGfest 11 video posted on youtube. Congrats, and it's also a great remix! Here's the link! (also love your other tunes on soundcloud)

  5. this was really cool, glad this thread got bumped up! favorites are "the dark room" and "light" at the moment... fun prog vibes from those tracks. good work, man!
  6. I play occasionally as this is one of the few games that runs on my crap-top... still trying to come to grips with all the strategies, terms, etc... this game just seems needlessly complicated. I do enjoy playing as veigar and nuking junglers, especially that master yi fellow tag is PrototypeRaptor2
  7. You're looking for a progressive house/trance pluck: In nexus, there's a pluck called PL Combined Beauty that sounds reallllly close to this right out of the box... http://www1.zippyshare.com/v/24010478/file.html Some eq work and you'd definitely be close enough to fool whoever. You can also find that sound in any number of Sylenth1 and Massive "Progressive House" packs.
  8. You made some good awesome remixes, Nullification, Chaos Nightmares, BadAzz, Chemixtrixx are only a bunch of my favorites from you, keep up with the good work man :)

  9. I used a program called "wub machine" on your song Badazz and it came out quite interesting. I was wondering if you wouldn't mind if I put it on youtube? crediting you of course. but I would like permission before posting it.

  10. QFT! Live performances are really the only way to survive in the "normal" music business model as we know it, imo. But with the internet and its total integration with society at this point, I believe there are plenty of new entrepreneurial options out there to try if you stretch your imagination. EX: I've been toying with/trying to work out the logistics of setting up an "edm studio" where I could have one-on-one lessons via email/skype with interested producers covering not only mixing, but composition techniques - like a hybrid of traditional classical training geared toward writing interesting electronic music aimed at developing an individual's style instead of just HOW TO WOBBLE. gotta get creative at this point, but I'm probably just crazy
  11. First of all, congrats on your new soundtrack, I know it will be killer! Second, to address your question of fanbase, it really boils down to how active and engaging you are, how much output you have, and how lucky you get. If you want to build a FB fanbase, you have to keep them interested in you through conversation, updates, etc. It's become a constant thing now through instant sites like twitter. Having lots of QUALITY output is also important - if the track is good, it will eventually find an audience... but you'll have to have more where that's coming from, and soon. And by good, I mean, REALLY good. You have to set the bar astronomically high and try to reach it - you're not allowed to be content with your mixing or composing to continue to be successful. Lots of modern artists nowadays I see having releases scheduled every month, even if it's an unofficial remix or something. Getting other kinds of attention is difficult; blogs are really scattered now and whether your stuff charts on places that matter like Hypem is basically luck of the draw. Starting out your best bet would be to try to garner a youtube following or post on forums you are respected and active in, like here. Basically, you have to have a damn quality product and be able to do lots more like it quickly, you have to be active and entertaining, and you have to either know someone or get lucky. Also, you have to keep trying. It's 80% about constant presence and 20% everything else haha
  12. Just FYI, there's a "lite" version of LASS that is significantly cheaper than the full library and would have all the features you need for the epic rock sound, though it is only strings. From personal experience with both libraries, the amount of time you will spend trying to get EWQL to sound half-way decent is about as long as it takes to do an entire mixdown with the LASS... there's really no comparison in quality, imo.
  13. well I guess I'll throw this out there: http://soundcloud.com/prototyperaptor not too many ocremix materials as of late, but I'm always working on new stuff, including a new bootleg track when I hit 2000 followers (hopefully) pretty soon also halc and bbriggs are awesome and totally worth following
  14. Being fan of the 3D sonic games, as well as a singer and fan of Crush 40, I want to shake your hand man, on what a great job you did on that Open Your Heart Remix. Crush 40 would be proud. Was wondering if you were thinking of remixing Live and Learn?
