    New track I started and finished today in just a couple hours! Had some real inspiration behind this so I was able to work pretty fast, hope you guys enjoy!

    Shivaxi - Piano Dreams
    WAV --> https://www.dropbox.com/s/6uyiyojk04...it%29.wav?dl=0
    MP3 --> https://www.dropbox.com/s/jiwxscxxu6...it%29.mp3?dl=0
    SoundCloud --> https://soundcloud.com/shivaxi/shivaxi-piano-dreams

    Bigups to Cybernetika as well since he made the original Piano sample that inspired me to do this song. And bigups Mellow Sonic helping me re-create the sound too!

    again if any mapper out there is looking for some music for their map, please lemme know!

    EDIT: Updated the song to v2, just added a little more oomph and stab to the piano

      Mellow Sonic and I also started collaborating together on a new track!

      Shivaxi & Mellow Sonic - Collab 1 2015 [unfinished demo]
      MP3 --> https://www.dropbox.com/s/xch5izrjl3...mo%29.mp3?dl=0

      Unfinished and this will be the full song, hence the very long extended intro and whatnot. I think it will definitely work for UT once I shorten and streamline the tune to fit a UT map, lemme know what you guys think!

      Also here's an amazing little sneak peak at what Cybernetika is up to! Collaborating with Xenofish on this one here:

      Cybernetika & Xenofish - Formation (demo clip)
      MP3 --> https://www.dropbox.com/s/konivxcq7c...IP%29.mp3?dl=0

      Cybernetika gave me permission to UTify this track as well, so when he finishes it I will be editing and making it a UT song for sure!

        New Track!

        Shivaxi - Ice Melt
        WAV --> https://www.dropbox.com/s/acv7plcjmp...it%29.wav?dl=0
        MP3 --> https://www.dropbox.com/s/tbm5l2qf1t...it%29.mp3?dl=0
        SoundCloud --> https://soundcloud.com/shivaxi/ice-melt-short-demo - NOTE: Not the same as the UT4 Edit version

        This is an older track of mine from 2011 but listening back I thought it'd fit perfect with a UT map, so I made a loopable edited version here for use in UT levels =)

          Listened few tracks and I'll make it short and sweet :

          Cybernetika & Xenofish - Formation (demo clip)

          Love this one even if it's to short. Excellent preview. Can you PLZ share the WAV when it will be finish (if they want of course)

          Shivaxi - Ice Melt v. 3

          Cool track. Still, it need more variation overall. The beat is cool, the piano too but after 3 mins you just get bored

          Shivaxi - Piano Dreams v. 2

          Cool, nice & simple track. I have minor suggestions:

          - The D&B drum is great but it need some punch imo. You might want to add a lower drum that punch every 4 / 8 beats ?
          - The end of the track stop abruptly ? It need to fade out nicely.

            Thanks for the feedback, appreciate it. The song ends abruptly on purpose because I made it a loop to be used in Unreal Tournament, so the song loops and repeats seamlessly without notice. The collab I did with Mellow Sonic is now a finished track on my soundcloud here:

            https://soundcloud.com/shivaxi/mello...axi-underworld

            This is the full track. If I was to make it for UT, I'd shorten the track quite a bit and make it loopable. I'm just not sure anymore this would fit in a UT map.

                Your welcome

                Just to make myself understand, I know why you build the tracks that way (loopable friendly), but you must know that making a track looping in-game can be done very, very, very easily. There is a loop function in the audio editor that serve only to do that. It take 5 secs to activate the function.

                So if your building a track that is loopable, the track only serve for gaming purpose If the track fade in / out nicely, not only it serve for gaming but also for listening outside the game Your making great tracks and seriously, you shouldn't limits your talent only for audio gaming but also sharing your tracks with the listeners, as I am.

                So PLZ, considers my suggestions to make the track friendly for casual listening, you'll reach more fans

                I just listen this track, ****, it's a long one ! But reducing by half (± 5 mins) by condensing all the parts, it would be a awesome track!

                I listened this one too, it's another great one!!!

                Like it a lot

                ...except that is again loopable, only good for mappers.

                I'll listen the other PLUSH RECORDINGS tracks now.

                  I don't think the loop function is as simple as you make it sound. Sure you can probably take a song and make it loop yourself, but that does not guarantee a SEAMLESS looping song unless the song is specifically built to do so, which is why I am making my tracks the way I am, so that they loop in a way that I am happy with, and do not have to be edited by 3rd party people with the loop function in ue4 which would both be a waste of time for them, and no longer play the way I intended either.

                  All of these tracks also already have full versions, most of which are on my soundcloud, so I'm not "limiting my talents" don't worry haha =P

                  Just to give some examples =P

                    Well, I can guaranty you the loop function took me 2 secs to use in all maps I've made. This was for UT3 which was release in 2007 ! Imagine it took me that amount of time to setup the track with an outdated editor. FYI, the loop will be seamless (0 delay between each play). If it doesn't loop properly it's only because the track beginning / end isn't well made and can be hear. But anyway, it's your call I'm only suggesting, not forcing you to do so.

                    BTW, many of the last tracks doesn't have a download link for the WAV format. I would like to collect few of them but I don't see any download link for them in the OP or on soundcloud. For example, the Ice Melt WAV link in the OP isn't v. 3 ?

                    As you can see, I like a lot of your works

                        There is an MP3 and WAV download for Ice Melt in the first post, they are the same version. The Plush Recordings tracks I cannot provide a wav format for as I only had the MP3 to work from originally.

                        Thanks! =)

                        I also did a Shared Dig remix a while back from the original Unreal. What do you guys think?

                              Thank you guys for the feedback =)

                              New Work-In-Progress track here from Myself and Mellow Sonic collaborating to remix the UT99 Menu Theme. Lemme know what you guys think:

                              Mellow Sonic & Shivaxi - UT Menu Theme Redux 2015 [EARLY WIP DEMO]
                              MP3 --> -link removed-

                              Please note though this is really REALLY early WIP and no where near finished, thanks!

                              EDIT:

                              Mellow Sonic & Shivaxi - UT Menu Theme Redux 2015 [PROTOTYPE 1]
                              MP3 --> -link removed-

                              Updated and made loopable, so its more or less "complete" even though there's still a lot of work to be done, just wanted to share and ask what you guys think so far! Keep in mind that the violins at the end and the reverse crash cymbal are more or less place holder sounds at the moment, I definitely wanna change them a bit. But yeah so prototype 1, and it's loopable too cause reasons yay! :P

                              EDIT EDIT:

                              Ok actually finished the track this morning! It is now complete and mastered version 1!

                              Mellow Sonic & Shivaxi - UT Menu Theme Redux 2015 (v1)
                              WAV --> https://www.dropbox.com/s/rj8ioh4fa2...v1%29.wav?dl=0

                              Was thinking about doing other versions of this as well, maybe a version with some harder drums and such, but yeah I am pretty happy with this. Bigups Mellow Sonic for the awesome collab!!
