  1. Hi there! I'm currently looking to collaborate with a female vocalist for a song with industrial elements. Here is a bit from the track that's still a work in progress: https://instaud.io/4jv Ideally, I would love the vocals to sound similar to :18 of THIS song: http://youtu.be/kStB53mRmMM With that said, I'm more than happy to hear your ideas and work together. You'll also be paid for your time and efforts. If you're interested, please feel free to comment or shoot me a message. Thank you!
  2. Hey, everyone! Here's the trailer theme for the game Beyond-Human whose Kickstarter just went live! Would love to know what you guys think of it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dQEiGB249I
  3. Hey, Adam! I actually chuckled at this because someone had commented on the youtube video "This reminds me of Shoot 'Em Up Movies!". I originally thought he was referring to actual movies with lots of gunfire and bad guys, so I was a little confused. I found out about the actual song and loved it! I wasn't inspired by this track in particular, but the style and vibe is an inspiration of mine as a whole. Karmotrine Dream was more of a Shin Megami Tensei inspiration/tribute track.
  4. Hi all! Here is a soundtrack for the game VA-11 HALL-A that was released today. The game itself is a bit of a tribute to cyberpunk and classic 80s anime. With the soundtrack, I worked on blending different influences such as the music from old school sci-fi anime, ps1 era music, and 80s vibes. Hope you enjoy! http://garoad.bandcamp.com/album/va-11-hall-a-prologue-ost-sounds-from-the-future
  5. Good job on both of these. I love how the bass really compliments the percussion from the one in Cowboy Bebop. Great compliment to the sample. The pitch of the piano melody/sample doesn't fit quite so much (In my opinion, anyway). I agree with G-Mixer, add some more original stuff and flair to it. Keep it up!
  6. I agree with Slimy. This was a real treat to listen to, and I think it's terrific. Keep up the great work!
  7. Hello! I just wrapped up a looping boss battle theme that I wanted to share with you guys. Hope you enjoy! Youtube - http://youtu.be/xeWSyGJQ9nI Soundcloud - https://soundcloud.com/garoadmusic/the-darkness-approaches
  8. Personally, I've never tried FL Studio, but I've heard nothing but great things about it. I say go for it! Having a DAW you're comfortable with makes the whole process smoother and more enjoyable. Let me know how it works out for you!
  9. Thanks for the kind words! I'm probably not the best example as far as workflow goes. The majority of it stems from noodling around and playing with different things until something sounds good and going from there. I use Cubase as my primary DAW (Sometimes I dive into a little Reason 4/Record duo). Nexus, Omnisphere, and Zebra tend to be my go-to plugins.
  10. Recently wrapped up a new song that I'd like to share. Hope you enjoy! As always, feedback and tips are more than welcome! Youtube: http://youtu.be/T0cRG7rDYXA Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/garoadmusic/escape-from-research-lab
  11. Hey thanks for the feedback, Emblem! Glad you like it, and I love the tip of adding a bit of a jazzy piano solo for Neon district. I'll play around and see what I come up with.
  12. Hi everyone! Here are a couple of tracks I recently finished up for a cyberpunk influenced game called 'VA-11 HALL-A'. I'm working on pulling off the old school PSX and anime cyberpunk vibe for this project. Just looking to see what you think and for constructive feedback. Hope you enjoy!

  14. Thank you for the kind words! I still don't think I've found my particular 'sound' just yet. I've been all over the grid just experimenting and finding what I enjoy. I'm completely open to any feedback anyone might have, so feel free to share!
  15. Hey, everyone! It's been a while since I've visited the forums here and thought I'd upload a couple of my recent tracks. Origin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCJbcQW61W8 Firefly: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=acKZzCmgQWo Hope you guys enjoy!
  16. Hey, all! Here's a composition I recently finished up. Would love to hear your thoughts - any kind of feedback is welcomed. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGdq234kGbA
  17. An ambient, Megami Tensei styled tune. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gCdevaLLwE
  18. Destiny's Road: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SqybxKZMoY Shin Megami Tensei: Neo Avatar "Underground Club": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPbINfQKF8Q&feature=related Destiny's Road is an older track I went back and reworked a bit. Underground Club is part of my Shin Megami Tensei concept album. Would love to hear your thoughts on them! ^^
  19. Thanks for this! Just starting out, it's great to sit down and read how someone else approaches the process. Great info all the way through.
  20. I'm very new to mixing and mastering and feel a bit overwhelmed. At the moment, I just kind of play around with EQ and stereo imaging until I find something that sounds decent by ear. Anyways, I was wondering if you guys could take a listen to a track I did and give me some pointers and tips about mixing and mastering. Feel free to rip the track a new one. http://www.megaupload.com/?d=JB5N791U Thanks in advance!
  21. Okay, here's an example of what I mean. This is a roughdraft of me just playing around http://www.megaupload.com/?d=DO13MJAO I panned the rhythm guitars left and right, but maybe there's too much gain like you said which causes it to sound muddy. Any tips? EDIT: I boot up an audio track with an amp (in this case, an adjusted Power Chord Luv amp) and added a spreader to turn it into a more stereo - type track. Recorded twice and panned to left and right and also set the EQ to the following settings: LF: + 3.0 dB at 125 Hzwith 2.0 Q Peak Response LMF: 0.0 dB at 445 Hz with 0.7 Q HMF: + 9.0 dB at 3.36 Hzwith 2.0 Q HF: Off (0.0dB) in which I found online that was recommended.
  22. Can anyone help me identify what effects are used on this lead guitar? Starts around 1:00 Sound like a flanger, but I can't be too sure.
  23. Hey all I was wondering if you guys had any tips for getting a polished guitar mix into your tracks. Mine always sound unnatural and a bit akward.
  24. Thanks, man! And you're right, the guitar does it get a little repetitive. I'll work on a little variation.
