Dark-ness (A Hoot for the Howlers Mix)



 Genre: Ambient
No artwork

Get Flash to see this player.

Dark-ness came about through watching the new Batman film, The Dark Night Rises. Nothing else.
Dark-ness is made up from only one instance of Zebra 2, with one preset used, SS Ominous EDT (from the Zebra 2 EDT Audio Zebrosis patch set).
There are 4 stereo pairs straight to the mixer whilst 4 other audio out's go each to 3 delay/echo VST's, with one being stereo, hence two out's from the Zebra 2 fed in.
The mix is then saved as a wave file, via Voxengo's free Recorder VST.
The wav file is then opened, on three stereo tracks, in Reaper. One track is left raw, one has reverb added, via the free Ambient reverb plugin and the third track has stereo width added via the Stereo Touch plugin, again from Voxengo's free plugin range. All three tracks are then fed through a compressor/expander plugin and saved, again as a wav file.
This mixed track is then equalized and fade-in/-outs are added where necessary, and the file then converted to an MP3 to upload or listen to. (Just under 8 minutes).

Hi Kenta.....
I know what you mean but I don't really enjoy competitions. I enjoy listening to the entries but not working on anything so specific or limiting (in any way).

Take care.
