I love the way melody of the main vocal hits some unexpected notes that somehow fit in (don’t ask me about the music theory - probably something mixolydian or whatever - but I like it!).
I’m not great with musical theory either so anything you said in that regard would be lost on me anyway!
Like every one else: I love the way the synth comes peeping out from under the guitar riff all the time,
Yeah, that is done using Boz’s Big Beuatiful Door plug, which pulls the volume of it down and up when instruments are playing (I can’t recall if I trigger it from the guitars or vocals or both). It can be done without the plug but it is an amazing one stop shop that has little need for complex routing and effects chains.
Is the orchestration some sort of Meletron? It’s hard to judge the stereo field on laptop speakers, but I’m thinking it might be interesting to try and further widen the orchestration in relation to the (already wide) guitars - maybe only in parts.
The orchestral sections are UVI orchestral suit. The panning is a little bit of an issue as it defaults to orchestral panning like a real sound stage. I have not dived into it enough to know how much specific panning you can do but it is not as easy as it should be I believe.
Would love to hear the other 4 songs
Thanks!! They all have similar qualities but are also quite different. If I’m honest, I’d say that Like an Omen is the best one of the lot. But I’m still happy with the others too. Thanks for the nice comments.
