  1. Oh my... I said I'd be back! Let's start this from the ground up! https://soundcloud.com/faytxstay/chemical-plant-zone-speed-1
  2. Finally re-uploaded after so long. I made a few changes.
  3. Careful of what you say, dood. Andrew is a friend of mine, and pirating -ANYTHING- from Impact Soundworks is out of the question. I can point you to a free guitar library using kontakt, but please refrain from mentioning anything of the sort from now on.
  4. I'll be the first to say that you're really ballsy going after one of my favorite soundtracks of all time, so kudos. I'll also be the first to say that your bass is coming in too thick and that you need to play with Shreddage a bit more for the realism to shine. Your bass is coming to thick, drowning out a lot of the mids. (Example: Your lead) I'll be watching your progress and if you need any advice on Shreddage, I'm your guy. (I followed you on SoundCloud.)
  5. BTW. If that's Shreddage II, I'll be impressed with the tone you've achieved. I still haven't found my niche, yet. It's an on-going adventure, I'm afraid. I also enjoy using AMPEG SVT/Amplitube 3[Ampeg included] when playing with Shreddage Bass.
  6. Definitely expand on this more! Is that Shreddage Bass I hear?
  7. Did a short remix of a track from an upcoming game by a friend! It's short and sweet, but I'm working to expand it. Also, I've never played with a few of these instruments before, so I have questions about things such as chiptune, choice for orchestral instruments and whatnot. Cheers!

  8. Timaes, you mind re-posting that second one without the drums? Edit: I'm not a bass player, but I watched a few videos on things that bass players like to do. I decided to play with the articulations, "Sustain, Staccato and Slide"(Can't get modulation/portamento to work). Didn't change much but it sounds a bit better in my opinion. Here's the bass, separated. https://www.box.com/s/uouspe14au53ip1vutil
  9. Up'ed for the last time. I think I have it this time. Gonna actually work on rearranging it, now. I changed the drums, but I may them back. Removed the lead so that you could hear the rhythm more clearly.
  10. Thank you! And as for your answers: I don't like the rattling bass either but other people seem to disagree. Of course I'm going to extend and completely reshape the mix. I just wanted my instruments to sound in order before I went any further. I'm glad everything is getting convincing sounding. I added treble on the kick(10khz). I'll revert it back. I'll get to arranging, right away!
  11. Re-up'd: Cranked up the bass and cut the low of my rhythm guitar. Now my bass sounds like it's rattling, due to the treble/edge. Is this the sound you desire?
  12. Been practicing Blazblue songs for a minute now. Been working on learning about DB/Level and Compression. Been learning how to get Shreddage and drums to sound as convincing as possible. Now I have to learn five things: How to find a suitable bass amp- How to EQ two lead guitars and sync pinch bends/sqeuals without ripping out my hair- What direction I want to take this song in to destroy the conservativeness- How to recognize chord progression- How to continuously get better- Note: (I got as close to 0db on the Fruity Meter as possible. I then threw a Brickwall limiter on the track. Just sayin'.) 'Remix' https://www.box.com/s/33673i2knh5umibvguhj 'Source'
  13. I'm no good at orchestral instruments, so I've been practicing a bit. I also looked into that bass like you said. This is remotely related, but should the bass and piano sound like this? (Just uploaded) https://soundcloud.com/faytxstay/white-requiem-ragna-vs-rachel
  14. Thanks! Does the mix sound quiet to you, is what I mean.
  15. Guess who got a new computer and new toys to play with? I've been far restricted by having to mix for years on a 2006 core2duo laptop. It just died, so I upgraded to an i7 laptop. The processing power is AMAZING. Anyways, I wanted to practice on mixing since everything isn't CPU-static now and I feel like I can move forward. To celebrate, I started a demo of Gluttony Fang. It's quick and dirty but I have an alarming question: I have a JBL laptop(I disabled the WaveAudio enhancement) but I'm not sure what the correct volume is for a mix, now. To me, it sounds ear piercing at full volume, but to others(And Audacity), it seems quiet. Is there a set master db limit that everyone follows?

  16. I will be stalking this post for potential greatness! (Favorite Theme)
  17. Okay. I updated and removed ze vocals. I just needed them as filler because I couldn't find the right lead I was searching for.
  18. I've been out of mixing for a minute. ( Not that I was good at it, anyway. ) I took a break to learn a bit about EQ and stuff, but I realized that until I get a new computer, I can't handle anything CPU intensive. I ended up starting this two nights ago, but my CPU wouldn't agree with me and kept overheating. ( Damn thing hits 90c+ as soon as I load my project. ) Anyways, as I started working on this, I realized some things. A. Shreddage X is incredible beyond measure. B. I can't figure out how to strum alternate on Shreddage. C. I'm trying to find a keytar-like sound. No luck so far. Song https://soundcloud.com/faytxstay/oriental-flower-demo Source https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SaTUNsIBrUM My goal is to imitate Daisuke's style by doing one completely conservative verse-bridge-chorus before leaping into my own style. I also realize that the rhythm guitars aren't grudgy/realistic enough, so I'm working on that. PS: I'm still unsure how to compress the guitars behind the bass.
