I'd do some processing on the drums. Either on individual channels or in a drum bus. Like some Tape distortion.
They sound a bit "straight out of the box".
And maybe increase the piano's volume some ;)

Thanks!

Yep - working on the piano. It is UP but fades after the first 8 bars of intro. I've amended drums and took out the nasty "glitch" tap. A;lso added a Warm Synth to replace the piano, towards the ned. Shaping up as a good intro. Now gotta think melodies... :)

File is updated on soundcloud ^

Getting there - it's too long and it lacks a lead/melody... but I am working on it!

Maybe think about an intimate breathy female vocal on it? My first listen to it triggered the start of this Chem.Bros tune in my head (well, the bit with the vocal), got a similar kind of vibe to it.

You could squeeze some nice acoustic guitar in there as well?

is this the final version?

Adam_Gill
01-27-2015, 06:38 PM
Not sure - I think the percussion, chords, instruments and tracks are what I wanted, now. I may still play a bit with the individual melodies... and I want to make an extended version (12+ minutes)

Adam_Gill
01-27-2015, 09:13 PM
This version done now...
