Postby mevla; Wed May 23, 2018 3:53 pm Fog - Spacey, pads, some kick and hats in the distance

This time around, in sharp contrast with the previous "Summer Theme", is a rather spacey piece, with long pad flights, some thump-thump kick drum in the distance, some high hat also in the distance, some voices, a synth that does some kind of a solo of some sort, a beat that comes and goes, all in all some kind of fog that covers through which some things are heard.

As usual, comments of any kind welcomed.

Cheers.

Spacey is right. Very cool. Loved it. Great mix. May I ask what synths you used for this track?

Thanks !

The synths are as follows. The presets were somewhat modified to suit the piece. In order of appearance:

Role: Synth - Preset

Pad: Synplant - SC Planetarium
Pad 'lead': Morphine - ATM Dark II
Soundscape: Direct Wave - WeatherM Drunk
Soundscape: Direct Wave - WeatherM Lucky Dream
Sequence: Synthmaster 2.9 - Sweet Chords
Lead: Harmless - CHE's Sunday Play 04

Plus audio drones, voices, kick, hh, beat loop, etc...

Created in Bitwig, mixed and mastered in Harrison Mixbus32C using Voxengo Curve EQ, u-he Satin tape emulator and Voxengo Elephant, all on the master bus. Tried to stick to K14. Export analysis at -1 dB normalization:

Code: Select all
      Integrated Loudness : -13.5 LUFS
           Loudness Range :  5.5 LU
                     Peak :  1.0 dBFS
                 Top Peak :  1.0 dBTP  <-yellow
       Normalization Gain :  1.85 dB

All done on Linux.

Cheers.

Weird fast droney stuff in the foreground and it sounds like dance music playing in the distance. Quite unusual and somehow you made it all work. Good job. :tu:

It sounds like some crazy party going on in that fog. A little experimental but quite listenable.

Maybe a little subliminal pollination from The Future Sound Of London.

Nice mix!

Enjoyed the music and the premise.
Phil's comment sums it up nicely...
Well done!

Apart from the great mixing quality I'm even more impressed by the fact that you created the track under Linux :)
Bet it was done by some perl script running in a tc shell :D
