A preview of my new industrial and ominous track.
Oh, hi! It’s been a terribly long time since I shared any music. This is a new piece I’m working on that takes on the usual ominous/industrial/haunting vocals sound. I didn’t want’t to post the preview until I had a chance to properly master it on good studio monitors. (I had previously been working with headphones, and honestly I did pretty well considering how hard it normally is to work on music with headphones for long periods of time.)
The track, bus, and pre-dub counts are starting to add up, but using Audition 3.0.1 on a quad core with 24 GB of RAM doesn’t slow it down, even with heavy use of effects and VST/DirectX plug-ins.
The next pass will be strings…that is to say, I will be adding some incidental strings along with a solo. I will probably go with the baritone violin, since I need something edgy and harsh to punch through. The fog of war (“density”) of this track is already starting to get into the 90th percentile.
Let me know what you think.
Once this track is finished, I will post it in its entirety, along with a podcast of me walking you through how it came to be, and “breaking down” what individual elements have gone into making the final product.
