Great work BenG! Sorta reminds me of something used in a Superman movie.
Thanks for sharing.October 5, 2018 at 3:23 pm #30980
Thank you so much and glad you liked it!October 13, 2018 at 5:32 pm #31045
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…October 14, 2018 at 2:36 pm #31052
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! 🙂October 14, 2018 at 3:10 pm #31053
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…..October 15, 2018 at 5:08 am #31055
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.October 15, 2018 at 8:31 am #31060
@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!October 15, 2018 at 8:38 am #31061
Hey Keith! Thanks for the kind words 🙂
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!
