Originally I made the first 4 bars over a year ago and got stuck. they play almost throughout the entire piece. It's a simple C-Em-Am-Dm chord progression, but I made a happy accident when I added in the atmospheric synths by thinking the chord progression was C-Em-Am-F so now I guess technically the chord progression is C-Em-Am-Dm7. I'm done composing it, but I'm taking time off from it before I mix it. If I can save enough for the animation I'll also have it professionally mastered because mastering is a black magic.
    Love the atmospheric vibe. Have you tried 99Designs for animators? Or Fiver? Might be able to get something going for less than you're expecting. I used 99Designs for my latest book cover and it turned out great. There's a ton of great designers and artists on there that don't need to make United States sized paychecks to live very well, so they can do work for a fraction of what an American designer needs to charge to make a living.

I need to buy that Vahalla Reverb VST for that (although EZ Drummer 2 has an 80s sound for the modern kit which comes real close!).

    Drum volume is PERFECT (despite what Iron1 says )

    Good sound too, love that snare.

    You have a good mix and nice playing. Could have tuned the guitar a bit more carefully before recording tho.

    Do you have lyrics+vocal lines for this song? Hook me up and I can give it a shot untless you have somebody else doing it.

    Beatiful composition! I'm sure your dog would have loved to sit by your side and listen to this

    From 0:55 things takes off and sounds really cool

    The part at 2:06 was fun with the stop-starts and panned guitars


    However continue listening and when I think about it, I start to suppose that you are using various "premade" drum patterns?
    Because the more I listen to the song the more I feel like many parts don't make sense with guitar riffs.

    If so I wont bitch about drums+guitar mismatch. That can be fixed later

    Yeah, it's BetaMonkey drum loops. Although I did program a few spots with individual hits, overall it's pre-made loops I use. Thanks for the feedback - still a work in progress.

    allll righty .... wanted to participate but I'm stupid rusty on actually getting shit to (digital) tape so using week 0 as a warm up to get back in the swing of programming drums and DAW workflow.

    Nothing special, but did this up last night using just drums/synth/effects, no guitars or anything. Was nice to just go through and make it and then call it done at the end. I can't master or anything so it sounds pretty quiet after rendering but still wouldn't mind some feedback on the actual structure/tones/writing etc. Really trying to do stuff that I wouldn't normally write or dabble in.

    Spoiler
    Jesus dies at the end....

    Can't say too much about it, not really my cup of tea musically.
    But it's well done, I guess

    Get EzMix2 and put some preset master on, that's an easy way to get a decent boost.
