Hi again. I originally joined these forums back in October of 2016, but I never posted much. I have, however, been listening to OC ReMix tracks for much longer. I like chiptune, synthesizers, metal, MIDI music, and also acoustic, synthy, and dubby stuff with organs, keyboards, etc. My other interests include pizza, games (everything from NES and DOS classics to modern FPSes), small animals (e.g., spiders, insects, legless lizards), and photographing small animals (spiders in particular). I also like octopuses (though I don't really eat octopus), classic sci-fi novels, and movies. - Myrgharok
Hello again. It's been quite a while since I first posted here, but I've decided to link some of my newer original music. Although I have also made some electronic and chiptune tracks, I have mainly still been writing many short "djent-y" themes, a few of which I will link below. My previous thread is obsolete as the tracks that used to be linked there were WIP versions of very old tracks that I've since uploaded to SoundCloud. Rather than re-post my oldest tracks here, I'm instead sharing some of my most recent music. The mixing quality and compression varies a lot amongst the short metal tracks, as I am still experimenting and learning how to make very heavy music like this sound better (e.g., heavy and aggressive but without being too clean, harsh, or messy). From 5 months ago: For this I tried to make something extremely "evil" and foreboding. Basically a wall of distortion with ominous choirs. From 6 months ago: Inspired by games such as DOOM. Same thing as above: Wall of distortion. No choirs or synths, though. I don't really like the drum samples I used... Within the past week: Use of dissonant, distorted chords. I think the drums in this are better than the drums I used in older stuff. This one has more melodic, slightly less distorted riffs. Making extremely down-tuned bass sound good is the main problem here for me. Thanks for listening! I am always finding ways to improve, but I enjoy making these themes.
Hello. I have uploaded a short excerpt from an original song which I am attempting to mix... Link: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/ftbejny6abxvvfh/S02T05 test.mp3 Here's a slightly different version: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/v96hp02tq9zaip0/S02T05 test - ver 2.mp3 I plan on eventually having the full song done by a professional, but currently I would like to know if my mix is of an acceptable quality for demonstration/preview purposes. Is there anything in particular that should be changed in terms of EQ or volume levels? Does it sound noticeably amateurish? All the instruments are programmed (including the guitars), since I'm a keyboard player and not a guitarist. I used Toontrack's Meshuggah EZdrummer demos as reference mixes. Edit: I compared it to some more tracks. I'm not really satisfied with the sound. I think the tone of the guitar and drums could still be improved a lot. Currently I am busy with another music-related project (not metal), but I may return to this later.
