Well, better late than never I guess? Anyways, I am super stuck on a climax sound to make to simulate a battle and this is what I got at the moment. Hope its ok.
This is the second draft and I added some more layers but I’m still not satisfied overall.
Animated swirls, and Bell Echo
R.I.P to 3 minutes of the original mix
So, for this draft I completely changed everything because I figured out how to do what it was that I wanted to do in the first place. It’s not as long as I would like it to be so I’m adding a new section for the next draft that will probably contrast with what I have now.
Per Levi’s suggestion, I softened the ‘not a guitar’ synth. I added a middle section which isn’t rhythmically aligned to anything but has some narrative properties, I think. I experimented a bit with the vocoder synth and I’m rather satisfied with the result. Here’s the track in its current state:
Alright so I added some stuff. I did want to keep to my pulp fiction theme so I added a little something in there but I need to work on the transition cus the whole thing kinda lacks smooth transitions. Btw that pulp section was completely made using the logic pen tool, took forever.
This is supposed to sound like the world is ending. PLEASE IF YOU ARE WEARING HEADPHONES TURN IT DOWN NEAR THE END IT GETS SUPER LOUD! I know that some of the synths come in way too suddenly and the fade on my Thunder sound is weird but otherwise I like what I have so far. Every synth is either out of an Fm chord or an Fdim chord.
I will be using Logic Pro for this next project. While I love the synths on Ableton Live, I feel more comfortable composing in Logic. I’m going to be writing a dark sounding piece that hopefully sounds like the world is ending at night during a storm.
I started a bunch of drafts but finally decided on continuing with this one. Very unusual feeling I’m going for, and I think it will vary from person to person (for me, it’s similar to angry-crying or some sort of rapture). I used a lot of resonance which is something I’ve never tried before.
I’m thinking about sending this composition to hell (dissonance, more despair), or continuing it “upwards” and speeding up. Suggestions for spatialization would help me out a lot !
