Hi Socky! Great choice! I think that you'll be able to create a killer version of this track.

Instead of using a midi file for the base like I usually do, I think I'm gonna try transcribing it all myself. Doesn't seem too tough of a track and it'll be good ear training.



Think I'm gonna hold off on releasing this publicly for a couple days, there's a new update for the game coming out soon and it'll get more attention then.

Hi mate! It sounds and look great! I loved the submits done by all those guests! I also think that the lead melody sounds more present and clearer now. Saving this to be published after the game stuff is a good move.

I had a nice meeting with an old friend, and he told me that he was working making music for video games, and that he was doing an online course offered by Hans Zimmer about making film score music. I've checked some parts and it's really interesting. Have you seen it?

Only done the first couple sections but how is this for the basic feel of the track? Tough to write drums that fit at 0:18 to 0:23; once I add in some transition sounds it'll flow a lot better.

And yeah I've actually got a copy of the Hans Zimmer Masterclass haha. Not watched every part yet but it's interesting, goes through his mindset when writing more than technical "use this chord and these notes".

Hi Socky, the overall feel of the arrangement is great. The transition sounds weird now. I can't imagine how drums will be to make it sounds natural. What's happening with tempo there?

Nothing, tempo stays the same and notewise I'm sure it's the same as the original, I've been transcribing so it matches an mp3 of it; maybe I'll just take out that weird stop-start riff it has and try something else.

Yeah, there is something weird sounding there. Try to work on that transition to make it more natural. The other parts sound great.

It's getting there, I'll add a solo section after this and another repeat of the main section and that should be it.
Still got some drums to write but I think I've got the basic structure down.

It's totally fantastic! So you've recorded the arrangements or used a midi track?

Most of it is recorded by me, single note melody's and bass notes are easy enough. For percussion I record a rough track then clean it up with a mouse and add in extra notes. I struggle a lot with transcribing chords, had to use a midi file as reference for the stacked horn parts at 0:19 to 0:22.

Putting this on hold for now, trying to get some videos out for some more recent things; shows, games etc.



Think I can do some hybrid orchestral/metal version for this anime opening.

That's awesome! The tune is so EPIC, it's very power metal style.

Have you thought in inviting a singer for any of your arrangements?

I have considered vocalists just to make some different types of videos rather than guitar ones but I don't really know any.

https://soundcloud.com/socky42/testop

How does this sound? I know the bit where everything cuts out around 0:56 sounds weird, still figuring out how to make that work.

And does the guitar tone for the transition at 1:11 work?

Hi mate, how are you?

I couldn't check this at my studio yet but from what I can hear here, I don't note any problematic areas. The arrangements sounds consistent and even the part at 00:56 feel good, and it maybe need any mixing trick to make it sound more interesting.

This sounds promising.

About the singers, what about start contacting singing youtubers? Maybe you could do some kind of collab in the future. Also, Kristofer Dahl is a great singer.

Gonna be away for a couple weeks then have my last exams at university but I'm gonna keep an eye out for some good vocalist tracks to do. Nothing on the radio has really caught my ear yet though!

Want to do some more movie score remixes too while I'm at it, just so I can practice my orchestration and sound design stuff a bit more like this track from Requiem for a Dream.


My custom Skervesen guitar should be arriving around June/July time and to demo it I thought I'd do this track from DOOM. Originally on an 8 string but I'm sure I can tune down. laugh.gif

It's awesome how powerful a soundtrack can be. I listen to that Requiem for a dream tune and I get chills. That movie is so deep and good. I think that it's a great choice. smile.gif

It's also exciting to know that your new guitar is coming and that you already have a project for her.

I've begun arranging the Requiem for a Dream track; gonna have some ambient heavy reverb/delay clean guitar in the intro. Still need to figure out what I want for the rest. laugh.gif

Probably won't be able to finish this till the end of May, have exams all month unfortunately.

Finally got a new update on my guitar; finished the painting process!

Hi Socky, it's awesome how cool your guitar is looking! I love the painting finish. Congrats!

The arrangement sounds very promising. Keep going.

And good luck with the exams.

Got the intro and first 'theme' sections done. Do you think it lasts too long from 0:38 to 1:13? It is a pretty repetitive melody, added some staccato groove to it to make it more interesting. Drums are just looped with no fills right now but that's the general feel I'm going for.

Think I'll keep it mainly to just Guitars/Bass/Drum Kit and only use the big orchestral hits/fx to emphasis the beat like at 1:14 onwards. Keeps the mix cleaner.
