    Amazing stuff. You need to sell your music to Movie Soundtracks.

    Thanks guys! @ MKS, I would love to get into selling stuff like that eventually. I'm going to have to investigate that a little more thoroughly.

    Really cool songs and production! What did you use for the synth parts? What about the guitars?

    I loved both songs. Great job!

    Also, I have to ask this, is there any progress with the full album you were working on?

    Love the 2 songs. But the bass is a bit loud in the first one. Needs some automation in some sections.

    Thanks! The synth is just Cubase 6's Embracer synth. All the guitars and bass on Song 2 are PodFarm2 and all guitars and bass on Song 1 are PODX3 recorded straight into Cubase. Same sound as PodFarm, just did not want to reamp.

    Shit, my progress is pathetic. I have not worked on anything for a long time now, I just had to do something different for a while. I'm going to get back into the swing of things come the new year because I really want that material out properly. Also, remind me to never ever record dry tracks of guitar to reamp! I just end up working on different amp tones instead of mixing the damn song. Anymore, I'd rather just have a track committed to 'tape' and just say oh well, let's run with it.

    Thank you so much!

    Are you talking about "Song 2"? That's the first one listed but I think the bass is more prominent in Song 1.

    Been listening to that song you posted in the middle of September literally every single day since I downloaded it.
    Was listening to it upwards of 8 hours per day pretty much non stop for like the first week haha.
    The new song is fantastic too.

    ^ this men knows how to compose a song. I also really dig the new songs. About the bass being loud, I was referring to the song in the first link.

    Totally. I get that feeling all the time. The never ending reamp cycle... but it's just so much more economical & consistent for large projects.

    If you ever do decide to compose for film - I'm your mix engineer - been looking to crack the game/film OST market for a little while now!

    Good work on the songs. I have to say I prefer your heavier material though - feels like there's more variety or something. Holds listener interest a bit more.

    Song 2 would go great in a Top Gun remake though! :D
