Default Geomagnetic Storm - Been playing too much tiberian sun :)

https://soundcloud.com/saike/geomagnetic-storm
Genre: Breakbeat / Electronic.

Took Filther and Squashman for a little walk

Found that you can make beats pretty snappy if you automate a lowpass cutoff on the RMS of the beat.

This one started as a coop with a friend, but definitely inspired by playing too much C&C Tiberian Sun (not that I can do Klepacki justice)

I love the tone palate you chose for this composition. I've got to spend more time with your software creations. Filther is deep.

Thanks for the kind words

I don't know. I switch between liking it and disliking it. The mix is pretty shoddy. There's some mud, clutter and rumble I don't like. Maybe I'll let it sit for a few days/weeks, render it to separate tracks and come back to mixing it with fresh ears.

With "electro" music like this, it can really be mixed any way you like - it just depends on what instruments you're focused on. Listen to some Robert Miles music - sometimes the drums are out front, sometimes the bassline, etc.

I think the drums could come down a bit, or maybe the other instruments up a bit to come "closer to the front" - I like the slow crescendo that starts at about 3:00 min - that's cool, and the bassline still works when the drums come back in.
