  1. Added a lot to it, so there's actually some of the original song in it. Also did some mixing stuff.
  2. Back to square 1 again. Been listening to a lot of old 90s trance, trying to really attempt to get that sort of style. I've learned some stuff about EQing and have made an effort at actually doing that on the instrument tracks. (Also, moved to bandcamp.)
  3. I've gotten back to this one and changed a lot of it, musically and instrument-wise. Hopefully this is a step up!
  4. Actually got around to adding percussion. Mostly 808/909-type stuff. The drums right now are fillers for the moment.
  5. Thanks for the suggestion. I will definitely look into using those. Anyhoo, I've replaced the bass with a patch that's actually in tune. And tried to fatten things up. The update's here.
  6. I dunno what I did in Synth1 to the bass, but its patch Is out of tune. That's easily the first thing I'm fixing tomorrow.
  7. Current Version: It's right here! So far, it's mostly an intro-type thing with just bass and some pads/leads. Percussion'll come later. Right now, I just want to know whether this seems like a good direction. I'm sort of inspired by 80s Rush here, minus the rock, what with the odd-time stuff going on, as well as a couple of minor shout-outs to Freewill and Distant Early Warning. When I do add percussion, I think I'll be going at that sort of "world music" feel from the same period with congas, shakers, ect. Here's what I've got so far.
  8. If you're on a budget (or just cheap), get Reaper. It's functional, it isn't super-hard to figure out, and it's shareware that you never have to actually buy to get the full experience. Try it out, at least, and if you don't like it, maybe fork out the dough for something else.
  9. Recently, I was introduced to the genre through Aphex Twin and Squarepusher. Impressed with him and some other assorted songs I've heard that'd fall under IDM, I ask: What would you say are definitive IDM artists/albums/songs?
  10. An other update is here. So, I honestly have no idea how to replace the beginning to 0:53 yet. That'll have to wait for some time. But in the meantime, I did try to overhaul the production some more and try to make the high lead in the first half less dissonant. Tried to further improve sounds as always, esp the drums. I'll also be honest and say that I still don't really know what I'm doing and if not for all the feedback I doubt I'd even be at this point in the WIP process, so loads of thanks to you people!
  11. Yes, the piano is intentially distorted. The original patch was alright, but I thought it needed to be more interesting, so it got distorted.
