Sorry it took so long to post this! After scrapping my first draft, it was very hard to come up with something else. I’m partially using this idea for my final but there will be changes.
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.
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.
Okay guys, after using my first draft as a base, this is what my second draft came to. This one is much more “house”-ish and I love the feel of it. I think that on the third draft I am going to vary back and forth between melodies, and add a new “drum” pattern into the second half of the second section. Yes I did use all synths, no drum samples. Sorry that its a full 5 minutes.
Hey all, I worked to encompass a piece that had more fluidity than that of last. This was all on Logic and includes analog synths and white noise oscillators.
Ayeeeeeeeeee!!!!! Things are getting spookier! I’m really loving the direction my project is going in. Once you start with some good jams it’s hard to stop. My only concern is how I’m going to incorporate negative synths in there but I’m sure I’ll find a way.
So in this draft I added a fleet of space pirate ships following the mothership (first 35 seconds), some more pink noise to try to emulate ocean sound, and some sine waves, whose envelopes I played with a whoooole bunch (the bell-sounding ones as well as the frantic percussive ones). Also a little feedback delay is in there. Hope you enjoy!
