Re: Fun game, guess the remix

It occurred to be because it sounds absolutely nothing like the remix or the original..

Apparently I’m No. 1 in the upload queue so I’m not holding anyone up if Jan fancies delaying it a few days..

Fun game, guess the remix

Hey, I’m nearly done making something new. This is the intro, it’s a remix of my remix, question is, what tune am I re-remxing? https://soundcloud.com/timforsyth/guess-the-remix/s-iivFRmKNW6d Backstory - I must have tried 4 or 5 times to come up with an intro to this, in the end I spliced up my remi...

Re: Terra Cresta

Thanks guys, glad to get confirmation the sounds and vibe are in the right place. Vred, I think you’ve hit the nail on the head. I couldn’t put my finger on what was wrong, hence this post, but you’re right, the pacing or dynamics are lacking in the second half. Like it goes from 0-5 then a relentle...

Terra Cresta

Hey, I'm fairly close to finishing the arrangement on this one, I've got my work cut out for me mixing this thing as I have a tendency to keep turning everything up. This is why the opening is so quiet and I just got carried away towards the end. A few fx are placeholders for now (like the s&h i...

Re: Abandoned WIP - Gauntlet 3 vs Plok

Ill definitely go back to it at some point. The reason I’ve abandoned it for now is the bpm I hole I dug for myself. I’ll have to rebuild the whole thing from scratch or painstakingly double stretch all the notes out. Adding to this is the automation, I put a ton of effort into the Plok solo, which ...

Abandoned WIP - Gauntlet 3 vs Plok

I’m an idiot! First time I’ve tried writing in 3/4 and I accidentally set the tempo to 192bpm and forgot about it. Due to several technical reasons I need it to be 96bpm but cubasis on iPadOS won’t let you stretch midi. So this is an early work in progress, the drums are placeholders (same repeating...

Re: WIP: Ice Queen

Thinking of royksopp, although this isn’t a perfect fit for your track, you just made me think of Andromeda off their lost tapes, in my opinion an outstanding example (like many their tracks) of how to build something from an initial hook to something wonderful. Has a good Sid vibe at the end of tha...

Re: WIP: Ice Queen

There are so many great SIDs I haven’t heard, this is one of them, cool! Went to take a few listens to the SID before I listened to yours. First of all, you’ve done the hard work of getting those notes down which can, at times, feel like a grind. I always timestretch each SID channel separately and ...

Re: M.A.C.H extended

Thanks for the thoughtful words, I’m so happy the idea of making this a journey (which I’m a big fan of this style of music writing, I tried this with Yie Ar Kung fu) came across here. when I heard that bass patch (it’s from Zeeon), everything clicked, funny how a single sound can propel you in a ce...

Re: M.A.C.H extended

>> I like it when remixers go off-script and take a tune into a totally new direction! Thanks Lala, my conscience was asking, is this ending really necessary?

M.A.C.H extended

Hey there, Now I’m free from the 5 minute compo limit, I thought instead if uploading my M.A.C.H remix, I’d extend it to be more true to the original. What hampered progress was a purchase of Cubasis for my iPad and the process of migrating the song from Kong Gadget and AUM has taken ages, it’s been...

It’s a shame these forums are quieter these days. Gotta say, what a fantastic slay radio broadcast, what a great competition, had a brilliant time listening tonight, although I joined late due to “bedtime”.... I thought it was funny it was mentioned that people went away from the scene due to family...
