  1. Took some feedback into account: Sped up the tempo to 90bpm, got a different beat and processed it. Just generally messed around the mix. Gonna look into spicing up the pad a bit, possibly getting an e-piano groove going. Not sure what else what else.

    Been experimenting with the structure, but I'm honestly kind of clueless.

  2. Hi all! Haven't been around here in ages, but I'm happy to be making game remixes a gain! I wanted to tackle a new genre, so I started jamming out to the Justice for All ending thing, possibly my favorite song in the game, and came up with this:

    I want to get into making hip hop beats, but I have NO idea what I'm doing, looking forward to any feedback! I was thinking of swinging the 16ths for one thing.

    Thank in advance.

  3. Bought it, downloaded it, loved it! <3

    This album rekindled my love for rock music so thank you for that. Growing up, I always enjoyed rock and to me, this album feels like a bit 90's alternative-ish but still does it's own thing, kinda like The Offspring or Korn during that time. Your hard work definitely paid off! Now excuse me, I'm going to go listen to this several more times as I'm really liking the guitar work here.

    Heartfelt thanks for your support! The 90's and early 2000's post-grunge and punk bands are definitely my biggest influences. :)

  4. Ladies and gents, I'm proud to present to you my first full-length album, 'The First Step to Nowhere'!

    luiza177.jpg

    It has 12 tracks, all originals, 10 of which are vocal songs. It's been on-and-off in production for about 2 years, but a lot of the ideas for these songs are quite old (as early as 2005), it feels nice to finally see them take shape. It also features lyric writing by our own Level 99!

    The title came about when I gave up engineering school to pursue my dream of a career in the music industry. Had my fair share of people tell me it'll lead nowhere, but it's a hard road I tread onto with pride. The music itself is really just me doing what I love most, and letting creativity run wherever it wants. Anyways, I hope you all enjoy! :D

    Listen/buy links:

    Bandcamp

    CDBaby

    Facebook (Music store app)

    iTunes

    Amazon

    Fellow brazilians, if you'd like to buy the album, don't go to Bandcamp. Unfortunately, Bandcamp doesn't let me charge BRL and Paypal won't let brazilians pay USD to other brazilians, sorry.

    Again, I hope y'all enjoy, and thanks for check it out! :D

  5. I thought it was pretty good. The piano was a bit soft, and the trumpet stood out to me the most. For some reason it sounds a bit tinny and fake-ish. It could be the few articulations you used, the EQ (I hope you didn't have to EQ it that much), or maybe the reverb?

    Keep it up! I loved your ToS remix with CarboHydroM! :D

    Thanks. I actually had to bring up the mids quite a lot, and de-ess it. I'm very partial to the Harmon mute sound (blame Miles Davis :P), but it gets RIDICULOUSLY harsh REALLY easily.

  6. Thanks everyone for your kind words and trumpet advice!

    darkbrandflake11, is a certain dynamic level necessary to play with flutter tongue and/or growl? Or even for that high note? How would a trumpet player realistically play that note?

    Forgive my ignorance, I haven't had the chance to play with that many trumpet players. Or even brass players in general, so my knowledge of them is, as of yet, quite limited.

    audio fidelity, it's alright. I actually love book recommendations, I learned pretty much 90% of what I know about production etc from books, so...

    EDIT: I googled the books you mentioned, but for the first one, I only found one called "The Jazz Theory Book" by Mark Levine, is that the one you meant? I actually started reading that book about a year ago, but stopped midway.

  7. I did this for my Arranging I final project, been exploring the colors of jazz. It's been quite enjoyable, but I'm still a newcomer to the style. Any and every kind of constructive feedback is very welcome! :)

    'Technical' shit:

    Drums: Superior 2.0 stock library.

    Piano: Kontakt NI Alicia's Keys library.

    Trumpet: Kontakt The Trumpet library.

    Bass: Kontakt CoreBass Pear library.

    Guitar: live through Waves GTR.

    Note that the mixes are slightly different in each link, but YouTube version being the more recent one.

    EDIT: I'm also open to better title suggestions.

  8. I adore the atmosphere in this song. Especially since these are two of my favorite track in the soundtrack, "Silence Before The Storm" being perhaps one of my all-time favorite game songs.

    The synthetic/acoustic blend was very tasteful, I really liked the piano and pads. But the drums seemed like they just happened to be playing at the same time, they don't sit very well in the mix and/or are just way too busy at times. Perhaps the "Silence..." part would've benefited from rhythmic displacement in the melody, but that's just me being nitpicky now.

    Anyway, thanks for remixing these songs, it's going to my playlist :)

  9. I feel a little bad for the shameless self-promotion, but there's also "Shiny New Ferrari" for ska-punk stuff. Ska, Reggae/Dub and punk really are a big part of what I love to do most.

    For straight up punk (if it also interests you), there's CarboHydroM and JAXX.
