I'll never understand 90's music, but this sounds good, well done.
That is so sick at 1:10 ish where the choir comes in, what samples did you use? I feel like there were some films in there, but I have no ideas which.
I used 3 samples.
All the quotes "we should reeve the enemies of god" "god wills it" "holiness is in right action" ect. were all from the movie Kingdom of Heaven. An amazing movie, great battles and plot line, which is rather historical describing the times when Jerusalem fell back to the Muslims under Saladin from the Christan crusader state of the Kingdom of Jerusalem. I suggest watching it. Theres also some string instruments from the soundtrack in there.
Next is my own song Until Rapture: http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/515750
I used it for the drums and all other electronic sounds.
The last is the choir that you liked which is Fauré Cantique de Jean Racine's Op 11. Youtube it, great sound.
I should also note that the name "Deus Vult" means "god wills it".
The intro is pretty sick, I like the reverb and chorus effect on the pulse waves. What program is that? I like the 8bit effects alot.
I made this song with mixcraft 6. Good program. Ive moved on to Fruity loops 11 now. I can do more with it than I ever could with mixcraft. Glad you liked the songs.
I like the melody around 1:00, it has that nice gothic kind of feel to it. The overall atmosphere is really nice, it's forboding, yet comforting with a melodic progression that is very unique and encompassing of all the frequency spectrum.
What headphones do you use to produce?
When I use headphones, I use the AKG K 272 HD. However, they won't make anyone happy who is into Hip Hop - the bass is not very loud. They make good studio headphones, they are very neutral and analytical - if you manage to make a track sound warm on the AKGs, you've done a really good job. ;D
Normally I just use my monitors (M-Audio Studiophile DSM3) to produce, I only use the headphones to change some small details. They aren't sold anymore, and they were a lot more expensive than my headphones, though.
Haha it get's so crazy, what synthesizer is that?
Cheers :) I just made the synth within reason by the subtrator making a square wave then putting it through a distortion plug in.
I'd say go for the finish
Thanks. I'll keep pressing on. I think i'm about 1/3rd from it being finished.
That's pretty neat haha
thanks man (:
That's a sick beat right there
I like all the ambient bass, the tempo drop at like 1:40 was a bit uncomfortable for me personally, but maybe that's the effect you were going for, overall, good job.
