Without getting further into minutia, I think you are saying you intentionally altered the bass line for its conclusion which is understandable. I wasn't expecting it and was wondering if it was a mistake.

Whoa, your fans even have their own name for themselves?! That's the coolest thing EVER!!! I guess I'm a seismologist too...and proud of it!!! :D


Thanks very much for the kind words and the listen, Chris. Glad you liked it :)

Seismology ain't as glamourous as you might think :wink:

this is great. i love the atmosphere and melodies - it reminds me in parts of Orbital. the relaxed yet persistent feeling of momentum is particularly nice and gives a great sense of progression. love it.

Thanks for listening, Matt. Glad you enjoyed it :)

A lot of that rhythmic shifting comes from the X-Fade Sequencer in Cubix. The EnergyXT drum sampler provides additional backup.

In any case, I think most seismologists would agree, this track is a 9.5 on the Richter Scale. :)

It feels like waiting for something huge to come. Matrix-esque

I can kind of hear the action movie thing tehlord mentioned, but I get a bit of horror too. Maybe one of the Phantasm sequels. Very cool. Thanks, seismic1.

Thanks very much for the listen and the great comments, Neil. Glad you enjoyed it :D

Orbital eh? Does that count as a '90s comparison :hihi:

Thanks for the comment and for listening Jesse :) It does seem to contain a degree of tension.

I always thought that the original Matrix movie was a game-changer. It's about time I watched it again. Must be 6 or 7 years now.

Thanks very much for listening and commenting, DHM. Glad you liked it :)

I love those EnergyXT pads. I think that atmosphere is largely down to them.

very cool arranging. Sounds like lots of attention to detail. And a bit more reverb on this than some of your others perhaps. Very cool deep watery bass sound.

good job.

btw, wouldn't have thought Zebra would dent an i5 much.
