Schreck is a fellow composer who frequents these forums and him and I are trying to ''out-heavy'' each other. No that''s stupid, we''re not at all. Sorry, I''m stupid.

Hmmmn.

It might pass for the menu music. It really isn''t right to drive along to.

First of all, racing music should always be slower than you think it needs to be. Your''s is actualy slow enough, but you can probably afford to make it slower.

I don''t like the guitar, it''s too muddy. And lose the "yeah! yeah!" effect.

The lead isn''t too bad, I''d leave that in.

And finaly, definatly needs more bass.


So yeah, clean up the guitar, find something to replace the "yeah!" business, and then experiment with different tempos, and you''ve probably got a good racing track.

I agree about the guitar sound,but thats up to the persons taste. And the "yeah! yeah!" is cool as hell! I dig it!

More bass? What system are you listening through? Anymore bass would be overkill. Play it through a system with decent subs and you''ll see what I mean. And with the guitar tone, thats fair enough but I challenge anyone to get a better/heavier DI tone from a Digi-Tech RP50. It''s all I have to work with for now (until I get my V-amp) unless I mic up my amp which I only do for serious projects.
Thanks for the comments guys.

I''d say the bass definately doesnt seem to be coming out of the mix and is hardly recognisable. And I''m listening thru a system that I''m familiar with. I also think the guitar could be EQ''d slightly better so that its not as muddy. It could be this thats making the bass less noticable

The only thing I would say is that there seems to be a big gap in the sound between the guitar and the electronics. If this was one of my songs I''d add some mids to the guitar and cut the bass, to bring the guitar up towards those electronics a little. I''d boost the low end (90hz or so) on the kick drum to help compensate for the reduction in low-end.

Wow. I''m so sorry. I''ve used those things before. They can be helpful, but the distortion you get out of them is the definition of digital-sounding distortion in my opinion. I used to use my Boss MT-2 pedal, but then I got a new 120-watt Crate with REALLY nice, natural distortion! ^_^
You can hear it in Blasting 3. How''s that for heavy? ^_^
