Blazblue: Litchi's Theme (Oriental Flower)

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

Shreddage automatically strums round-robin.

What is with the bandpassed japanese vocals? Sounds like some sort of acapella rip... done badly. Or a radio edit.

the vocals have potential, but they feel like they've been shoehorned in.

maybe if you didn't compress them and noise-gated them or chopped them you could get a cool melodic-staccato effect.

I'd like to leave a note about the cymbal roll/splash effect, because I notice it every time it happens. I can tell it's the same one and it's used quite a few times--perhaps alternating sounds or changing it up a little each time would make it less noticeable.
