Theme is simple but very nice with interesting intro and then with nice "weird" atmosphere in mid part of track 1:25 - 2:55 min. Last part is also interesting where you are trying to combine these two parts together but it feels crowded. Yes this happen to me often when I trying to do the same
. It have good epic cinematic feel even the most of instruments are synthesized. Maybe it is too Epic for this theme.
That kick at 1:20 is distracting. If I were you I will remove it or maybe try it to replace with subtle sub hit or better kind of gentle sub whoosh. It will create better quieter transition between those two parts. Noise on this hit is too much for me.
That "kick" at 1:20 is the communication (the hello) being abruptly cut with the final kill switch being hit
Please do wait for my "narrative" similar to yours. It will make more sense and my "simple" theme might seem a tad more complex. But of course! it is no match for your mind-blowing and complex theme & production
Oh and maybe your own track is not epic enough? Thought about that?
Now to the sound. I think the track is drowned in reverb breaking the feel of stage. You have glued all instruments together too much. Sub freq 40Hz and bellow need to be lowered. Also you should decrease frequencies between 600 - 800Hz. Stage is there but as I said there is too much reverb. Some instruments moving from L to R channel too much. Sometimes static placement is better and it is also easier to tune mix and stage.
I have nothing moving from L to R except for that 1 LFO based PAD during transitions.
You have true peak at 0dB that is too much even for CD master. Also some tiny DC offset L +0.001% and R +0.0002%.
Not sure how that's possible since my limiter is set to limit to -1 dB. Also I don't know how to get rid of DC offset and how that impacts music. I will read up on it. Thanks for that analysis. What tools do you use for this BTW?
Nice track with different approach. I will not say more because I don't want to alter your view on theme and music. Different approach is what make music unique. Cool track.
Oh don't worry, you can't alter my view on anything
Your opinion is after all, your opinion.
More rant during official voting/scoring.
Ofcourse! Rants will definitely
follow in the official voting/scoring, you can surely rest assured cause even I have a lot to comment on yours, in a similar way
I'm glad you gave feedback.
