View Full Version : Something a little different...

Howdy people!

I'm a student in England, and decided about 3 months ago that I want to do film/tv/game composition as a career. Looking at GPO and EWQL Silver, I thought the sounds for EWQL were staggeringly impressive,so I got them. GPO also seems like a great piece of kit - and I noticed the huge bitchfight that seemed to cripple their boards for a while and got this lot chucked out - so I won't say any more about the rivalry, or whatever resulted from it.

Anyway - I've listened to the demos on here, and pretty much all of them are fantastic. It's both a brilliant inspiration and source of entartainment as much as a harsh reminder of the amount of talented people who will want the same work as me! Keep up the good work guys...

I haven't had much time to mess about with the samples and get a good working knowledge of how to use them effectively, but I've got a couple of months ahead to tech myself. I have done one thing though - a little different to the stuff on here already. Not quite sure what genre it'd fall into - you lot can decide!


Any comments/critisicm/insults/death threats welcome - its all about learning from your mistakes!

You want some insults? So get ready!

Just kidding. :D

What a surprise! Interesting and unexpected remix.
You did a good a job with Silver.

I have an overall criticism: the master level is way to low! You need at least to normalize it. I had to turn up my speakers very high, and the volume was still too low.

Question: how did you get Brit's voice? Did you get it from the normal record?

Songs remixing is something that I know very little about. I am very curious how you can extract voices from a record.

Good luck for you starting carrier!

best remix of brit i ever heard :)

Cheers for the comments - thought I'd normalised it but I'll bear that in mind next time. It does sound a bit quiet.

Getting the vocal on it's own is usually done via a search on Soulseek. For remixes, you can only get the vocal isolated from the studio master, or a perfectly synched instrumental/original track. When people find these they stick 'em on file-sharing programs and then people use the instrumentals and acapellas to make remixes.

I'll get round to doing something a little more 'film-score' later, but thought I'd put something - as the thread says - 'a little different' first! Ta for the comments again.

Not was I was expecting from the intro though pleasently surprised, very funny (not sure why) but well done its really good.

Funny to get something different like this.
Your composition blends well with Britney. Silver Baby, one more time.

It was already mentioned - use a maximizer / normalizer next time and play around with compression which will make it more tight.

Keep it up dude

Thanks for the kind comments - I might try out some other 'orchestral remixes' if I get the time...

06-14-2005, 10:57 AM
lol, great fun!

The intro completely fools you :D

could you post this again? the link is dead. :(

There's a little snippet of it towards the middle of the 'showreel' mp3 on the above page.
I'll repost a link for the whole thing when I can get round to it - but soundclick are a little bit harsh on posting 'remixes' - which this piece technically is...

Sorry to drag this back up to the top, but I've got a fresh link to the song in case anyone missed it first time.

Listed as 'hit me orchestrally one more time'.

- just rolls off the tongue, don't it..?!
