This took 10 hours to record in May 2010, and the August 2012 Edit/Remix/Master took 15 hours. No problems encountered here other than the usual parameter juggling. Again, this track was composed sequentially, and the basic track was complete in one (very long) day.

and then our very own drumity offered to make a master for me

Flow - Mastered @ 96kHz/24bit by HD Mastering (Daniel Abadie)

Daniel can be contacted here via PM or via his SoundCloud account

And now the Crimson Sun Audio master of the Crimson Sun Audio remix

A big thank you to Loz at Crimson Sun audio for his mix and master, and to Daniel at HD Mastering. This has been a very interesting and enlightening journey.

Edit: 20171128 - I have remastered this once more in preparation for an album release in 2018. This is mastered in EnergyXT using Satin and Elevate

Edit: 20171203 - Remastered once again with Elevate, slightly increasing the level

DR - 10

Edit: 20191110 - Yet another master - this time with TRacks5, pushing the levels slightly higher still, but hopefully not over-doing it

DR - 8

Very nice composition - I love the way the sound builds, and how you keep introducing new ideas, so the track stays fresh and interesting right to the end. Very enjoyable!

Great, great sounds as always, mixed to perfection, and nice development from start to finish. And so ~@#%ing catchy :D

really enjoyed this! Well mixed, progressed nicely, and left me wanting more. Even though this isn't my go-to genre, those are three qualities I seek in my music, so I think you hit the nail on the head.

Cheers, Mike. Glad you liked it :) There is a "Part 2" of this due for remix in April. The thing is, I didn't even realise it was Part 2 until about a month after I finished it :dog:

you introduce sounds and different parts with ease, it does "flow" together. have to say that echoey synth riff is excellent, what a great theme to build on, found myself listening for it the whole way through.
nicely done

Nice intro, everything comes in quite nicely...delicate and interesting...but wait...wasn't sure about the synth, until the drums kicked in and it all made sense.

Well done here, much enjoyed!

That synth part was made using a slightly modded Mello fifths patch from z3r0t0n1n's HahahaCS33 bank.
