New Track: Sthaga

9. August 2015 15:00 by Hamst3r in Tracks

You know what I like? The music of 1997. Big Beat. Some of my favorite albums were released that year. The Prodigy's Fat of the Land, The Crystal Method's Vegas, The Chemical Brothers' Dig Your Own Hole.

Well, this new track is inspired by all that sort of stuff. Big Beat mixed with Indian sounds and themes. I tried to find a good mix between acoustic instruments and synths, so that the track wouldn't be dominated by either one.

What This Could Be

20. September 2013 09:32 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Watch out, I'm going to pretty you to death, piano style. This is an uplifting track with a whole lot of stuff going on. It starts off with a piano and some slow swelling strings, building up into a big beat with a bunch of chops and stutters. After this it drops you into a wall of sound with big guitars, more strings, and an e.piano.

There's also a violin doing it's soloing thing and then a new synth and an 808 and...okay, how about you just listen to it?

Rise of the Triad. It's a video game from the 90's. It's being remade...so, how about a remix of my favorite track from the game?


Pew pew pew!

The Giant Bomb Community Song

21. September 2010 13:53 by Hamst3r in Giant Bomb

So, there’s this website, Giant Bomb, which is my favorite gaming website. I find their videos and podcast to be quite amusing.

There’s also a good community there on the forums.

About a month ago I start a thread requesting voice recordings. A week into the project I had the song pretty much done and determined that a video would really seal the deal.

Here’s the end result:

New Track: Mode 7

27. July 2009 15:48 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Have you ever wondered what four Nintendo Game Boy handhelds playing in unison would sound like? No? Oh, ok.

Well, guess what?

It sounds like this new track!

The track is called Mode 7 and it’s a lot of buzzes and blips. A chiptune, if you will.

I’m a fan of single oscillator saw synths being used to emulate lead guitar sounds and other such nonsense, so there’s some of that sort of thing going on in this track.

Also, there’s no effects processing or mixing outside of a tape saturator and a mastering limiter to keep the overall sound under control.

Stylistically, I wasn’t attempting to mimic the music from any particular video game, though classics like Mega Man, F-Zero, Castlevania and others will always be in the back of my mind when I’m making stuff like this, so you might hear a bit of those in there.

Enjoy!
