    Remix for Seven Lions' Days to Come.

    Missed the entry by 10 minutes due to internet issues *shakes head*

    Oh well here it is in most of it's glory, I'd love to get some feedback before I do any final touches etc



    Cheers!

    thanks bud. My drum process is quite extensive.... but a quick rundown would be:

    1. lots of resampling, dynamic processing and eqing
    2. layering of breaks, especially amen with hi passing and eqing to taste
    3. choice of samples is really important sidechaining and parallel compressing

    cheers

    Wow! Great work, I reckon you're already at that next level. Only critique I have is the hats seem really ear piercing on the high frequencies, maybe let a little bit more through lower down the spectrum, not a lot mind, and maybe cut everything above about 16khz to tame them in a bit. Apart from that this is fucking fantastic!

    i love the fact that the build up fits the drop but doesn't give away what the drop will be like! awesome tune with an INCREDIBLE part from 1:51 onwards

    Is that fm synthesis? Really good work by the way. Lots of fun stuff going on keeping the interesting.

    Thanks for the tip kronix, noticed that this time around. And thanks for the support!


    No FM synthesis here... I am trying my hand at FM8 tho, looks rather complicated so far. Thanks for the support once again IV

    And to everyone else I'm really glad you all like it! Makes me more bummed that I was unable to enter the contest but oh well until next time I guess. Cheers everyone

    Sick work man!
    Only thing I could suggest is compressing your mix to sound louder? Sounds a little quiet to me, none the less killer track
