A Trillian Times Before ( Final Mix )


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Initially this song was an experiment testing out Trillian Bass Module by Spectrasonics.
It started to take shape and morph into something with potential so I ended up adding to it and building up a structure. I am eager to hear the final version with vox over top, as there will be a male and female vocalist attacking it. Will be dropping on an album this year under the Lotuslight Label. Thanks in advance for the listens & Comments.

Everything is original aside from a drum loop.
Elec Guitars were played.
Bass Guitar is sequenced using Trillian Bass Module by Spectrasonics.
All other elements are sequenced/midi in cubase 4. ( VST )

I do consider this a "mix" although I did add some mastering elements using Ozone 4.

this
has evolved in to quiet a super track Jay. Really interested to hear the version with vox but this is really a solid stand alone IMHO ...super production man.

Very Trippy
This is very cool, I can almost hear a male robotic-voice speaking at first, then a female voice just wailing away. I dig the guitar playing, super kudos man!

How long this one take?
Modern sound, that guitar is great through out, a lot more of it this time around. That keyboard brake at about 1.40 was choice, liked to hear a bit more of that sound in places. Nice mix up of genres.

Hard to say, most of the time spent was re-listening and mixing. I put in a lot of time though. Thanks man, I enjoyed 1:40 and you're right it could have made more appearances.

It sounds

And the crowd goes bazzerk!
I didn't think this could get any better, but wouldn't ya know it. You've gone and done it again!

I love what you did with "that guitar part". You put a nice spin on it to keep it in and keep it sweet and effective. I know you worked really hard on this one...amazing job! Can't wait to hear the vocal tracks laid on it.

Bravo Jay!!

Thanks for the enthusiasm, I spent a lot of time forging the sound and mix, and I have to say I think im happy to finally move on from it. It sucked a lot of energy out of me. I too am anxiuos to hear the final with vox. Hope all is well with you.

Funky space fun
what caught my eye was the name Trillian(she is is one of the characters from Douglas Adams Hitchikers guide to the Galaxy).Whilst nowt to do with her (unless you want to do a duet between her and Marvin the Paranoid Anderoid 80) this does not disappoint in any way and is a brilliant piece,much enjoyed.Cheers ,Jarvo.

indeed, a classic book ;) Thanks for the listen and kind words Jarvo, I spent a lot of time on the mix and trying to make everything work with eachother. I've been working hard lately trying to make ideas more "listenable" and sonically appealing.

Hi Jay!
this is a cool version, and you're right that vox would be an awesome addition .... BUT ... gotta say ... this doesn't really NEED anything. Great work - you've gotten so good!

Cool piece
sounds like a soundtrack to an action movie as is now. Cool guitar sound here. I like the starts and stops too, adds to the tension. Very cool synth work. Interested to hear what the vox are going to be. That should be interesting.

gritty alien spy music
The guitar work adds a bit of spy-element (and BTW, I would not chop off the tail of some of the guitar work, but let it fade instead, eg at 00:16 where it just halts, that sounds too abrupt to me.) The bass guitar work is great... and overall this is tres trilian cool.
ttfn,
Drakonis

ah yes, the ever so observant mechanical dragon! Thanks for the tip Eduard, I personally enjoy the sudden halts. I felt that it suited the nature of the track. I unfortunatley don't have the project file anymore, but it would have been cool to go back and try out what you suggested. Thanks again, your comments and suggestions are always appreciated.

Thanks Ego, the guitars are on amp sims through cubase. I lack guitar gear which is my next step in evolving my little studio. If you have any opinions on effects pedals that are of good quality anywhere up to $500 roughly, let me know. Im going to be picking one up soon after I research some of them.

Super meld of instruments in just the right places with the proper air throughout. I don't hear a vox improving this track. I think it's awesome as is! KOKO,,T

Thanks for the listen and kind words Terra. I agree with you, I like the picture, music, and concept as a whole and think it works well on its own. Still i'm anxiuos to hear some vox on it. Unfortunately I don't think they are keeping in the spirit of the alien abduction theme, cuz that's what ide love to hear over this.

Great basses
I have Trilogy (will upgrade once I get an Intel Mac) and those Spectrasonics basses are really good. First thing I did one I got it was write a track with three interwoven bass parts.

Ok, yours is not so much a bass showcase. Hey, if I could play guitar like that I wouldn't hide it either.

Cool track.
