Woa! I was writing you a pm when I got noticed about your upload. Well,…very very very nice to listen. Very very smooth…remarkable the way you used the FXs!!!!

As soon as I downloaded your sample pack, I knew that symphony loop had to put to use as part of an intro. :-D Thank you for the kind comments! I am glad you enjoyed the mix.


P.S. The track must of been one heck of a distraction! :-)) You never did write me that PM.

this is a very nice work, but one thing you could improve, I think, is the sound of the bassdrum, which could be much deeper and more hitting

Thanks for the feedback. I understand the urge to have harder hits in a mix. I often feel that way myself. I experimented with a deeper sound to the drums and I felt they just sounded better with the lighter/snappier approach. Of course, it’s all a matter of personal taste.

this is very cool. very effective coupling of the vocal tracks with the minimal beats and drones, and gurdo, your drones on this are awesome and compliment this perfect in my opinion.

Thank you!! I usually create very dense and large mixes. I needed a change up and this was the result. Are not Gurdonark’s drones king of all drones? :-D

Good stuff PC. Lovely build-up. Cool beat.

One tiny nit, the hi-vocals seems to come in 4 bars early.

Thank you! Glad you enjoyed it. The out of sync hi vocals was user error. :-P I thought I have uploaded a “corrected” version after I realized I used the out-of-sync version of the combined vocals. Guess I didn’t. :-D That’s been fixed, but because people did seem to enjoy it even with the hivox coming earlier, I left that as a secondary file.

Hey, don’t mess with the mix ;) This is most definately the “experimental” mix of In My Dreams….that is until Gurdonark does the “drone” extended mix! :)

Unfortunately you giving such open-air to the harmony (hi vocals) made me write a note to myself to sing them better next time! ;)

Nice one porchy! :D

Nah, you did most excellently! It was wonderful. I’ve kept the “out of sync” version as the primary. Happy accidents are always the best kind.

the fixed sync is wicked! great mix! how do i add the fixed sync and not the original to my favs? 5 stars. the lyrics were cool too.

Thanks! I’m not sure how to add the fix’d sync version to your list. However, I’ll ask if the wizards that run the place can accommodate somehow. :)
