    Great work BenG! Sorta reminds me of something used in a Superman movie.
    Thanks for sharing.

    nice one BenG….most impressive…one suggestion I felt no depth…needs some sub or more bottom…IMHO….do you use a sub … I listen back to trailers with a sub I gotta feel it…

    Thanks so much and appreciate the mixing feedback!

    In answer to your question, I do not use a sub and you are not the first one to mention the lack of bass! Unfortunately, I am using headphones which is not ideal but will be sure to punch up the bass going forward! πŸ™‚

    hey Ben you can mix with headphones (I mix with both monitors, headphones and use the cheap Apple white “things” to check my mix why because I see so many people using these to listen to their phones or tablets or whatever)…….just got to get the right ones and mix into them….here is a great vid by a guy I kinda follow sometimes he’s chalk full of little nuggets ….hope this helps…..

    Hello BenG.

    The emotional arc of this piece is fantastic! I’m curious, did you compose it with a timeline, story board, or a description from a client?

    Thanks for any insight.

    @cyberk91, Thanks for sending this along, lots of good stuff!

    I think the key is learn what your headphone’s/monitor’s/studio’s tendencies and mix accordingly once you know what is lacking/present. I’ve also heard tons of good things about Sonarworks and should check them out!

    Hey Keith! Thanks for the kind words πŸ™‚

    As for the ‘arc’, I actually did not use any storyboard/client brief but did follow a simple musical structure, which I had outlined beforehand. Globally, I used an AABA form with a few different add-ons here and there. Basically, the track follows…

    Intro – A – Sequence – A2 – Sequence – B – Sequence – A3 – Codetta – Cadential

    Hope this helps and please feel free to reach out if you have any other questions!
