New Track: Melodica

6. October 2016 18:07 by Hamst3r in Tracks

I put this track together for the 2016 Giant Bomb Extra Life promo video, and it's the first track from any of those promos that I've felt compelled to complete.

The idea here was to make a sort of energetic chill out piece. Mix a Glitch Hop style beat with a lot of atmospheric pads and acoustic guitar. Add in some big orchestral drums and a whole mess of reverb and we've got ourselves a track!

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?

New Track: Secrets

7. August 2013 05:28 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Vocals vocals vocals. This one is a whole lot of vocals. It's also pop. Upbeat pop...but kind of relaxing too, if you can dig it. It's also about secrets. How mysterious.

The synths drive, the drums snap, the bass grumbles and the effects swoosh all around. There are also a few string and guitar bits thrown in for good measure. Oh and this is the largest vocal stack I've ever done, so yay for that.

Remix: Water World from Duke Nukem 3D

29. May 2013 15:17 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Bobby Prince. Maybe you've heard of him. He did the music for DOOM. He also did some of the music for Duke Nukem 3D. This is my take on one of his tracks.

So, what we've got here is some chillout ambience, everything awash in reverb, blips and bleeps, a solid beat with fast-paced fills and a fat sub bass. I more-or-less continued from where I left off with the Reveal remix.

This track was also my way of testing out Native Instruments Battery 4 for drum sequencing as well as the new NI reverb plugins. :P

Remix: Sary - Reveal (THA Chillout Mix)

11. January 2013 22:11 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Starting off 2013 with a remix! I've taken the tune, "Reveal" by Sary - originally a trance tune - and converted it into this chilltastic float tank for you to relax in. Get comfy. Sink into it.

If you want to peep the original track, you can find it here: http://soundbutt.com/sarychen/reveal-2009
