    Another new track - Destroyer

    =======
    FINISHED
    =======



    Video outdated

    This is the only final version right now: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...stroyerv16.ogg


    Old stuff below


    Hello guys, because my previous two tracks were quite soft, and because I synthesized a pretty **** epic lead guitar, I thought I should turn it up a notch, it might be a bit too much though, in that case I can try making the track less intense and slower paced.

    The track is pretty rough still though, I'm not happy yet with the arrangement so I will work on that during the weekend, but I got quite far in 4 hours!

    Haven't paid attention to mastering much, but it didn't sound too bad so far I think.

    Here ya go: Check below for update.


    Feedback is very essential for me to turn this into a proper track, so please do not hesitate, I always consider anything people post.


    UPDATED:

    This is a new version with some minor changes here and there. Main focus was on mastering, which should be better now, more dynamic, but not done yet! I also extended the track a bit, but it's not definitive yet.

    Here ya go: Check the updated version below


    UPDATED:

    Huge mastering overhaul, drums enhanced, electric guitar lead adjusted heavily to be more in the left and right.

    This is it: Check the updated version below


    UPDATED:

    More mastering, did a lot of compressing and side-chaining to increase dynamics, worked especially a lot on the drums, changed some minor things in the composition too , I feel it's really starting to shape up now.

    boom: Update below

    UPDATED:

    More mastering again, this time I worked a lot on the bass balance, I think I'm almost getting to the final version. Also did some minor panning and composition changes.

    here: Latest version at the top!

    Love it! The pacing feels right and I love the sweeping pads over the fast arpeggiating synth lines. I am eager to hear what you are going to add.

    Great work!

        I like this one! The lead sounds great, although I'd EQ it differently or make it louder, but other than that, it's nice, fast and snappy.
        The snare seems a little bit.. far away? It might be just me, cause I like killer snares in soundracks.
        The pads and ambients are great, I don't think I can say anything bad about them.
        I can't really comment on the mastering because of my sound equipment at the moment.

          I updated the track now, improved mastering further

            @Archer6621, I can't give any other feedback than tell you that you did a great work there! Great choice of placing drums and electronic samples, the music just keeps at adrenaline-packed UT-vibe from start to end of the track!

            Great stuff, keep it coming!

                I think I can call it finished now, unless something huge is wrong with it.

                Tried playtesting in-game, it's nice with the right volume, would do for small and fast paced deathmatch maps

                  This is great! A few more tracks of this calibre and the original composers wont have any work to do at all.

                    Little underwhelming with the drums, but otherwise pretty good track.

                      Loving all the work you've done there, jeez - it took much time and efforts on the way to the 8th one, for sure!

                      Sick track, I suggest Epic introduce a new badge 'UT Composer' since music on forums develops in the right art direction, I suppose. That's why I see it highly important - to encourage composers in a certain way.
                      Cheers!

                        v. 8

                        Nice track

                        I've listen the 3 versions but I think the one I like the most is the final version.

                        I think you did a great job with this one. Therefore, even if there is a lot of sounds, it sound "squeezed" like in a can. It need some headroom, or to breath more if you like. Sorry, if I'm not clear my English isn't good enough The only thing that come across my mind is if your listen some good quality vinyls, you will ear the music as a dept which I don't hear listening this track. MP3 isn't my cup of tea neither...

                        But the sound is really nice. It only need to bread more

                          Yeah not very hard to fix to some extent, they were just a bit too low in volume compared to the leads and pads, I'll make a v9 with a fix, already partially tackled it in the alternative versions below the videos

                          So far there hasn't been much of a word from epic in this part of the forums, I think because it's not a big priority yet. Thank you for your comment anyway

                          I will try to tackle that for the v9 as well, I might need to change some things in the composition in order to do it effectively, mainly panning stuff and such.


                          It's just that I had very little feedback from people about mastering so far, so I couldn't get it to sound right yet, but I might now.

                            Great !

                            I can't help at all about audio mastering but I'm definitely curious to listen v. 9

                              Alright Steve, I'm going to need your help on this one, tell me if this sounds better than the previous, I got two versions for you, try the AAC one if you can play it, otherwise the ogg version:

                              AAC: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...yerFinalv9.aac
                              OGG: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...yerFinalv9.ogg

                              If it doesn't.. I wouldn't know what else to do, I don't have the knowledge/equipment yet to do better I think.
