Here comes my entry. It is an imaginary soundtrack to a short film about Asgard, the home world of Odin. As you see, this time it is not just one single song as usual. I had so many ideas and sounds, so I decided to devide the track in 4 movements.
Movement 1 - Crossing Bifröst
Bifröst is the rainbow bridge from Midgard (which stands for our Earth) to Asgard. You have to cross it to get to Asgard.
Movement 2 - The twelve Palaces
Asgard is surrounded by an impregnable wall. Inside there are the twelve palaces, where all the gods live.
Movement 3 - Memory of the Fallen
In this world of gods, they can die. So there are always some to grieve for.
Movement 4 - The War Horns
You don't want to hear that sound. Because it means that the battle is about to begin!

Odin2 is really a big monster synth. Endless potential! Thanx so much for this great instrument to The WaveWarden
The only problem I had was the CPU hunger, especially with unison. So I made the sound design with a certain unison value, but during composing and arranging I turned all unison down to 1. Nevertheless I often had some mutes and crackles when too many notes are playing at the same time. But those mutes were not allways at the same point and at any time I played the track. I think the PC was not allways too busy to handle the data.
When the arrangement of the movments were done, I set all unison to the desired values and I froze all single tracks. This gave me perfect wave files for each instrument, easy to mix afterwards.
