    Hello,

    sorry for the (very) delayed response. I’ve been really busy with faamily and work problems. Honestly, I don’t feel like going through huge, lenghty processes of licensing my music allowing someone to use it (that is what I understood from the above links). I would rather just find an independent movie maker, talk to him personally and agree on details about the soundtrack.
    Anyway, so far I have only posted mostly dark music here. Well this is my second project, ‘Luminosphere’. I’ve released the first album on the ‘Mahorka’ netlabel and it is available for free here: mahorka.org/release/093
    I can’t really label it as one genre, but it is an ambient/chillout mix with a positive and maybe melancholic vibe.
    I hope you guys enjoy it πŸ™‚

    Hmmm :-k
    You could approach a government funding body about this. They might be able to link you up with film makers in the process of planning a project and looking for composers. In my case I would ask questions of the Australia Council for the Arts.

    Playing it now… love it! There’s a broader range of moods in this one. I have posted a link to Luminosphere’s ‘Halcyon Days’ on Facebook and G+. If you’re on those platforms please join those, they’re run by Frits a.k.a. Zynewave.

    I’m very glad you guys liked my music. I finally managed to create a fb page and official page for the project, so now I’m trying to spread the word around.
    People on this forum have been awesome from the beginning; I can honestly say that because of the positive response that I got from this forum I continued to keep on writing music. Now I am close to releasing my first commercial album (the second ‘Cryobiosis’ album).
    Thank you! πŸ™‚

    I did (done?) a little experiment with Podium Free :idea:. This work allowed to test its features and capabilities and it helped me to understand what features I need in Podium.

    The Prodigy – Out of space (rebuilt in Zynewave Podium Free)

    Beyond the track and the genre that can like or not, I can say that Podium defended well in comparison with other DAW (the same song has been recreated in Renoise, for example). Podium does not have built-in instruments, nor sound libraries, so for me the “challenge” and fun (so much!), was to find plugins (all free) to play the sounds as closely as possible. One thing to keep in mind is that the original song was made almost entirely with audio samples (some unavailable because the source is unknown).

    That said, let’s move to the technical part (Wow! I look like a real expert! :lol:).
    For the arrangement I used the tools that Podium makes available (more than enough).
    For the time stretching I’ve used the UVI Workstation because is very simple.

    Here are the plugins used:

      – Alchemy Player for strings intro
      – Zynewave Nucleum for strings on lead
      – Elektrostudio Virtual Model Pro for lead
      – Tyrell N6 for lead and more …
      – DSK MiniDrumz for snare drums (TR808) and cymbal (TR909)

    I had to play the bounced track because my computer begins to stall.

    For research and preparation of the samples, “research” instruments and sounds and final arrangement are spent almost three weeks.

    Except for small inaccuracies, I think that it’s not so bad. What do you say? :mrgreen:

    WOW!!! =D>

    Great job MLS. I had to look up the original for comparison and found yours to be a fairly accurate recreation. There are some differences, as you mentioned, but you definitely captured the bulk of Prodigy’s track.

    Discrepancies I noticed were:

    • No bass drum (the one that sounds like a large diameter membrane).
    • Higher pitched ‘boing’.
    • The rave stabs weren’t layered synth patches.
    • Thinner overall filtering of the parts.
    • Reverbs.

    But these are of only minor variation.

    Heck, if I tried to do the same, it would come out like a Christmas card that plays the melody when you open it.

    To my mind, there is no doubt, Podium offers the tools for such work. All it needs is the creative/analytical ear to accomplish such feats. Great job. One that should feature on Zynewave’s YouTube channel, me thinks πŸ™‚

    Thank you very much Levendis!
    Your analysis is very accurate. It’s not that you stole the project file, right? πŸ˜†

    bass drum
    One of the things that I could not understand is if the Prodigy have added a bass drum or whether they have used only one of the Shamen. If I use the equalizer to increase the bass, the bass drum is heard too much and “covers” everything else. I decided to let it go.

    Boing!
    This is one of the samples with unknown origin. I recovered from the game now closed in a box in the attic (it is 1997).

    :-s I don’t understand :D, but I tell you that I did superimposing two different synth (in the video a little you see …) and honestly, it’s a little out of sync with the voice of Max Romeo.

    Reverb
    I’ve spent a lot of time to reproduce the sound of the lead (I call it so …) and at the end I got bored … but actually the lack of reverb you hear. Also the volumes should be “fixed”.

    For the pure electronic music, such as this, Podium has nothing to envy to other DAWs.

    Thank you again! Your comment made me very happy!

    Here’s my latest batch of songs. These are all older songs that I’ve rewritten and recorded new demos for. And it’s the first one where I’ve used all the new gear I bought when Allan’s Music was having their closing down sale last year. Of course, I used Zynewave Podium 3.2 for all these.
