Released way back in Jan 8, 2018, this was my first attempt into ambient music..... this is a mixture of new age and classical, if that's possible! With just a few adjustments, here is the remix: Voyage Beyond
The mixdown on this arrangement took a while. There are many tracks to this song. Therefore, I used Steinberg's Cubase Pro 10.5 internal VSTi called Halion Sonic SE 3 and Spector. Instruments used in Halion were:
Digi BassElement OrganRomantic Trumpet1984 Synth Stab
Spector started as the "Shanghai" preset but was modified several times for effect.
On the Yahmaha MODX 7 Imperial Strings was used for keyboard and EDM kit for the drums.
This was my most popular track .... titled, Trees, it's a haunting Irish melody played on cello, with a theme and variation form. I find myself hearing this melody line over and over in my head! Please enjoy Trees
I used the following instruments on the Yamaha MODX 7:
FM Sweep AnalogPad
FM Smooth WoodBass
Ever expansive, the Sky is always with us every day. Here's the latest version on Soundcloud: the Sky This track took forever to remix because I rewrote the melody line in one section added a variation to that line in another section. Making the display of the Score bigger makes the whole process of editing and rewriting much easier.
PRESETS USED ON THE MODX:
Modern Rock Kit 2
This started out as a simple piano piece but became "ambient" when I added the synth sounds. The idea was to create a song that emulates the rising of the sun, first brilliant light (that's the Sawtooth sweeping sound taking melody at the beginning) followed by the peaceful boys choir finishing out the song.
