Track I am working on for a video game, would love some feedback
For this track please listen through at least 2:50 as the track evolves over time and I bring in strings. Also I think this is the type track where Reason really shines, I literally built every sound from scratch in Reason, even the huge drums I modeled in Kong. Every synth patch I made, of course the strings are from miroslav but other than that, it is 100% me. The track is based around one drone bass line, imagine playing like Doom to this ha ha let me know what you think.

Also, since I usually produce hip-hop and electronic music, I don't consider myself all that good with strings, so if you guys could really pick this apart and let me know where I failed that would rock. Thanks!

Great track! Very deep and interesting. If the strings are the concern and or focus of ur question I would say that POWER is the dominant force for this track and the strings fall a bit short of power. All the elements in this track prove to be dominant and powerful the strings kinda slip in the side door. If that is what u have intended for reasons of yer own its great as is. BUT, if the strings could conquer the track, I think you may be more pleased with em.

yea, that's great advice and that may be just a mix thing. Let me play with that. Thanks for listening!

I gotta fever! And the only more cowbell! Im feelin the strings, but the intesity doesnt match. I enjoy the work you do, to the fullest. But if there is any way, maybe automating the compressor, I need more. They are still sitting background to an epic track. Strings are super mood makers. They drive emotion, but these the way they are just create a sustain. Im just gonna put it out there, drive those strings my man! Im gonna take a good look at this situation, and remember this, to introduce it to my tracks. The best advice is hard advice right?

Do you mean drive them with say scream or make the string arrangement faster?

and I will work on the cowbell! ha ha

JacobCallaghan 2011-08-21 06:39

I like the strings the way they are! But it couldnt hurt to make them more driving!

The bass strings are dope, the violin, can u articulate the velocities to emphasis the strong notes? Kinda play with the feeling thru strength. This is awesome tho, Im totally learning myself. I have a track open I'm working on now and I was playing with the velocity and noticed how much more strong the note sounds before and after. Who are u gonna send this to? It should be the title track of some future war game thats for damn sure!
