  1. Update, i think i have addresses all the problems i could find, tried also some changes in the portamento but didn't like the result, so i'm sticking to the original arrangement since i'm ok with it. Also a good improvement on overall clarity of the mix after several attempts of mixing\mastering combinations. Hope you enjoy this https://www.dropbox.com/s/owyveega1eoxzny/Holding_M_13.4_v3.mp3
  2. Ok, first attempt of mastering after decompression, i have to work some more on the transition, @timaeus222 please let me know if what you suggested is something in this mood https://www.dropbox.com/s/kaf5zczk5axmj7p/Holding_M_8.4_v2.mp3
  3. Uh, yeah, probably this is a better approach, i'll try this!
  4. But but but... are you sure??Judganator told me that this is the best remix of all the best remixes, maybe you want to re-evaluate your opinion! Jokes apart, i can hear what you pointed. I think i will have no problems in adding a one more bar of fading kickdrum and write something on it to make the transition at 2:50 take longer to roll into the breakdown. About the flipdy doo on portamento, i need some clarification due to my school-level english (what does flipdy-doo stands for??) and my scarce experience with the portamento of my instruments, i must admit i rarely play with it:( Now yo
  5. I'm not familiar with the source, i had to search it on the tube, please add a link to the firts post:) Loved your remix, most of all the pads. If i have to point out something is that probably this is a bit too long and some cuts will probably help in keeping the interest of the listener from start to finish. Maybe try to shrink the section from 2'15'' to 4'00'' and let the part from 4'00''come in earlier. Nothing to point out in the production side, very good work.
  6. Ok, i feel like this is ok https://soundcloud.com/blindzoom/holding-my-thoughts-in-my edit:switched to mod review
  7. Yes i already tried to give it a little more volume, but it made feel the track empty once it stops playing, and also was partially covering the other instruments while playing at an higher volume (not that much, like a +1dB, but was enough to start conflicting) Yes the part from 4.34 was what gave me headache, i already EQed what i could, there's nothing more i can do without one of the 3 instruments to start sound weak and empty, i removed what i could (especially from the sawpad)and boosted a couple notches around 650-700Hz and 1-1.2Khz on the piano to let it come trough, and i actually li
  8. Sorry for the late response, but i had to look into the subject before replying. I use Reason, so no VST allowed, however thanks to you i discovered that it has its own transient shaper inside a drum maschine i never use,and i had to make a little practice with it. Very useful tool, i've always played with layered samples and modified its parameters to design the sound, but having a transient designer on top of that really makes things easier. https://soundcloud.com/blindzoom/wip-holding-16-3 New version, i put a lot of time trying to clean up things, really had an hard time fitting the piano
  9. I'm aware of this, i mean i know it sounds weird. But the strings are stopping quite drastically also in the source. i think the biggest problem is the lower pad, i may try to automate its release just for those two parts and leave the higher strings as they are. Or simply make the notes longer, i'll give it a go I have no clue of how to deal on this, time to get some infos on transient shaping I opted for the reverb since when put uprfront, the higher notes were totally unpleasant, maybe i should try to automate the dry\wet of the reverb to be more present on higher notes. I'm on it! Than
  10. Sorry, i thought it would be available for those who had the link. Public now.
  11. Updating, since i'm moving towards the end of the arrangement. (no mastering in this version) https://soundcloud.com/blindzoom/wip_holding-16-2 First of all, and is for you @timaeus222, no more intro subpad but a much more pleasant intro with some strings, plus more fidelity with the source. Second, in the attempt to clean up unecessary instruments since the track is getting pretty big, i deleted part of the triplet synth thinking it wasn't in use, so only teh "hitting" part is left and the melodic part is gone, i saved after that, i'll have to redo that since it was sounding good. Still some
  12. lol it has been strange to me to bump such an old thread, but i LOVE the source and i will never stop until i'll get to do something i really like with it. Yes the track is unfinished, in fact i pratically restarded it from scratch and i'm still arranging, i know levels are way off and some instruments are wrongly placed (the triplets synth is probably going to be at the center while as it were in the previous versionsthe lead will be put far in the stereo field) , and the offbeat cymbal is the only percussion in place atm and the kick also needs some variation in pattern, i'll repost once i'm
  13. Decided to take a good 2 steps back,here's how it's going. https://soundcloud.com/blindzoom/holding-wip-27-1 just put a limiter on top of the track, and some instruments are not EQed yet, this is just to give you an heads up. Wanted to do some call-respond with the lead, in the spirit of the source, but i'm not happy at all with how the lead sounds with a single note melody , so i'll probably drop some chords on it
  14. Thank you, i'll get rid f that LFO Thank you timaeus, i promise you i'll change that sub pad into something better. As for the rythmic part, i have to admit that i just used the patterns\instruments i left 1 year ago as they were,wiothout adjusting them to the changes i made to other synths\bass\pads.Seems like i'm gonna keep only the kick and redo the rest from scratch. As for the loudness, the Reason export peaks at about -7dB before mastering, which i thought to be good, so i think you are pointing out something in the mastering section.If you can tell me something more precise on this sub
  15. Well, i don't know if it's good policy to bump such an old thread after more than a year,but i have some news. My pc was too slow to handle the track back then, so i abandoned it and moved along with new projects. More then a year have passed, i've learned something in my other projects so i decided to go back to this one, and i swear that it took me one day just to figure out which device was doing what once i opened Reason project, it was a total mess. After a week, here's the result,hope to have some feedback from you guys. https://soundcloud.com/blindzoom/wip_holding I'm sorry if the link
